In this exciting episode of Magic Markets, we delve into the captivating world of finance and banking, focusing on a heavyweight showdown between two financial giants: JP Morgan, the original titan of banking, and Standard Bank, a formidable local hero in its own right. This clash of financial titans promises to be a battle of financial wits, global reach versus local expertise, and a testament to the evolution of the banking industry.

Join us as we answer the following questions:

  • JP Morgan is up 8% on a year-to-date basis – could it be possible that Standard Bank is up even further than that?
  • If Capitec Bank is the Margarita of pizzas, what does that make Standard Bank?
  • What is the endowment effect, and how is it helping banks when interest rates are going up?
  • Should we be heeding JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon’s warnings about stagflation & a 7% FED funds rate?
