Although the general feeling may be that UK banks are currently taking a beating an investment expert has suggested Lloyds TSB makes a great investment opportunity right now.
The analyst felt that in the midst of what have been torrid trading conditions Lloyds TSB had announced very encouraging results. The bank has taken a cautious stance on mortgages, buy to let ones especially, and also any securities that are underwritten by assets.
This approach has kept Lloyds TSB away from the worst of the difficulties facing some other banks and left them looking strong as they move forwards. The bank appears to be a relatively safe haven with the cautious management approach but also offers the opportunity for substantial growth as Lloyds TSB uses its relative strength to maximise market opportunities.
