Yeh many on here probably aren’t using metro as their primary bank although not sure why this would be considered an investment issue based on what a few blokes on a forum use. It’s hardly an adequate and accurate sample size for the adult UK population, or indeed the current 2 million Metro customer base and how they use the product. Looking down my own portfolio, I don’t smoke, don’t use visa, don’t own an apple product (I could go on!), but doesn’t mean I don’t think these companies are good investments either based on my own research :)
Action most likely in relation to FCA remediation items to improve governance / accountability. Goes hand in hand with the 2 recent appointments, 1 ex-FCA (and expert in regulatory investigations issues) and the other head of audit for Barclays - both of which should improve governance. Guessing fca result very close now, if not this year early next.
Another observation- Both these appointments female and also recall recent CIO as female. Noticed today that the RNS specifically stated Sally ‘championed diversity initiatives’. Wondering if another one of the FCA recommendations was to improve diversity in senior management roles. Looks like Metro getting its house in order. Gla
Personally I can read and understand the messages just fine and find them very useful, so long may they continue. Some don’t which is fair enough - ignore or filter I guess. Never going to find a forum where every contributor works well for you. Also the number of messages are posted over a number of years, and it’s not like we are getting spammed here like over on the other board. Yes hopefully onwards and upwards for Metro. I do personally think there will be one (hopefully just one lol) bear raid at some point for shorts to close - always seems too easy and convenient for them! Gla
Now hoping for a genuine breakout for Metro over the coming few weeks rather than yet another false daily spike up - we are overdue a genuine bounce! Ref Amers, he’ll be crying into his beer - we’ll probably here from him later when he’s p**sed up lol
