In this article, the author discusses the signs of the start of a recovery from economic turmoil in Great Britain. He says that valuations in equity and corporate bond markets at compelling levels and more positive economic data emerging from the wreckage of the credit crunch are signs that the financial services industry is recovering. He also mentions that investors are taking some comforts from the statement of U.S. Department of Treasury that banks seem to be well-capitalised.
