A “fair” rating was given to banking systems in China, Columbia, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK and the US.

Stephen Ellis, Morningstar’s director of equity research for banking and financial services, said the research assessed the stability of banks’ traditional financial intermediary businesses as well as their non-intermediary businesses.

“We also introduce a rigorous analysis of the banking systems in which banks operate, which is critical to our confidence in the sustainability of a bank’s excess returns and evaluating the likelihood of value-destroying events,” he said.”
