Industry Responds Successfully to Market Challenges of 2004
Review of Securioties Markets 2004
Securities Industry Association (SIA)
Dec 2004 United States Investment - General
While the securities industry enjoyed exceptional results in the first quarter, industry performance reverted to more normal levels during the remainder of 2004. Uncertainty over the impact of rising interest rates, increasing oil prices, US elections and the Iraq War reduced both investor interest and issuer activity in capital markets during the summer. As these concerns were partially dispelled, activity picked up and industry performance slightly exceeded expectations in the final quarter of the year. Thanks to continued cost controls and still strong productivity gains the industry will post strong profits in 2004 despite only modest revenue growth.

US Securities Industry in 2003
Review of the US Securities Industry in 2003

This reflected a number of factors, most notably a dearth of initial public offerings and minimal merger and acquisition activity.
