    Banks: Commercial and Savings

China’s second largest state-owned bank is grappling with a slowing Chinese economy like the rest of the country’s largest lenders. The government’s recent interest rate cuts have hurt margins and the overall economic slowdown is making observers nervous about China Construction Bank’s potential over the next few years. In the fourth quarter it reported its first quarterly profit decline since the financial crisis of 2009. Its fortunes remain tied to China because of its founding as a state-controlled lender, but it is slowly expanding outside the country as China’s government expands its interests abroad.
