I'd also like to add my thanks, and a suggestion...
Could this board be made "Banks & Fixed Interest"? Most FI is of course, banks but on a Banking board we need to be circumspect when discussing insurance and other FI. I seem to recall that on TMF there was the odd objection to discussing non-banking FI. Maybe it's just me, but I'd like all the FI to be in one place.

Totally concur that a straight 'Banking Sector' title is not appropriate for the hoped use of this board - "Fixed Income" with something like "Preference Shares, PIBS, Bonds & Gilts" as a subtitle might work, too.

Another vote for me for Banking and Fixed Interest.

Maybe another vote also for users of boards not to be so picky about absolute detail of what can be posted in the future, now we won't have paid moderators!! :D

Picky, yes! Here we go! Fixed Income would work better than Fixed Interest because the income can be dividends (prefs) rather than interest! OBR's site is FixedIncomexxx ... Though at the end of the day we have a chance to fix an old niggle about the 'Banking Sector' moniker!

Thanks and well done!
Agree fixed income might be a plan for the board name.

But do we want to explicitly cover all Fixed Income? Would that not mean absorbing the whole Gilts and Bonds board. I would suggest a simple Terms of Reference statement along the lines of:

"The Banking board covers topics relating to investments in banks of all forms; equity, preference shares, and senior and subordinated debt. The scope is global and not limited to UK banks. Topics and discussions relating to preference shares in non-banking entities are not the core subject matter of this board but are considered reasonable, particular when discussing the relative merits of investments, for example preference shares issued by Raven Russia Limited (RUSP)."

What do people think of that as a first draft?

Terry.

Banking and Fixed Interest for me. The Gilts and Bonds Board to me is a different mindset and people with that mindset will still post there. If the Bonds part of Gilts and Bonds is a problem then Bonds could be removed from that Board Heading but it seems a bit rich to ask someone else's board to change their title to suit this board.

Looked at from a practical point of view. For me the Banking Board is where I first look for opportunities and information. I wouldn't want to miss an FI opportunity because it wasn't on the Banking Board. I am not by nature a Gilts investor (maybe I should change) so will read the Gilts board from time to time.
