Safe Bank Shares for Your Portfolio

In today's edition, Motley Fool U.K. team members David Kuo and Nate Weisshaar discuss the outlook for U.K. banks. They touch on the seemingly never-ending stream of bank scandals and the difficulties facing investors looking to invest in the sector today. The combination of reputational hits and regulatory pressure has created an exciting environment for finance investors today. David is still rather bullish on Barclays, while Nate is a fan of several Candian banks as well as Standard Charter, which is an easy way to diversify without stepping outside of the LSE.
