Would you consider buying royal mail shares?

BEN BERNICE | BANK OF TOKYO
Yes, I think so. It’s a brand name, and I expect a lot of people to be interested in it. If it gained new capital to invest maybe the service would get better. Though of course there’s tough competition with DHL.

DAVID BAILEY | BANK OF ENGLAND
No. As an organisation, it has not really earned my confidence and as a service business it has not been the best. I don’t see a lot of growth potential in that sector either. We’re all sending emails, aren’t we?

AMIR DAVALOU | MONITISE
Maybe. It’s a reputable company, and they already have the infrastructure. UPS and DHL are making money, so I don’t see why they couldn’t do that as well. Of course, they need to upgrade their service levels.

These views are those of the individuals above and not necessarily those of their company
