Sector movers: Banks, Travel names pace gains

(Sharecast News) - Lenders' shares led the advance on Thursday after the Bank of England signalled increased confidence in the outlook on the back of the vaccine rollout in the UK. That resulted in a jump in longer-term Gilt yields, which helped to lift the banking sector.

Shares of Lloyds, NatWest and Barclays were all higher.

Of course, a successful rollout also has very positive implications for the travel sector, a fact not lost on investors who pushed up the likes of Compass Group, IAG and InterContinental Hotels.
