German term or phrase: feine Marge
as in . . . "Das immer teurer werdende Eigenkapital der Banken wird jedoch dazu führen, dass die traditionell langfristigen Kredite - auf alle Fälle am Ende der
feinen Margen - erheblich abnehmen." Are they saying that the rising cost of the banks' equity is putting them in the position of offering fewer long-term loans, particularly those with spreads on the lower end of the scale?
