    BoE's Woods says banks have enough lending capacity in pandemic

    Banks should have more than enough freed-up capital to back the volume of loans anticipated to help companies bridge the coronavirus pandemic, Bank of England Deputy Governor Sam Woods said on Monday. The BoE has allowed banks to tap a reserve of capital known as the counter cyclical capital buffer to support loans up to 190 billion pounds. Royal Bank of Scotland Chairman Howard Davies told the webinar that banks needed more reassurance from regulators on the amount of time they would get to rebuild capital buffers once the pandemic has passed.

    Lloyds Bank profit almost wiped out by $1.75 billion coronavirus hit

    Lloyds Banking Group's <LLOY.L> first quarter pretax profit was all but erased by provisions against expected bad loans due to the coronavirus pandemic, although Britain's biggest bank said on Thursday it was well placed to help with a recovery. Viewed as a bellwether for the wider British economy as the country's largest provider of home loans and one of its biggest business lenders, Lloyds reported pre-tax profit of 74 million pounds, down from 1.6 billion pounds the previous year. HSBC and Barclays have also set aside billions of pounds to cover an expected spike in bad loans due to the coronavirus outbreak, with state-backed RBS expected to follow suit on Friday.

    Banks must eliminate coronavirus refund confusion, consumer champion says

    One of Britain's largest consumer interest groups has called on banks to adopt a consistent approach to managing claims from customers who have failed to secure refunds from travel firms and other businesses after coronavirus cancellations. The chargeback process - offered by most card providers - reverses a transaction if a customer is unable to resolve a dispute with a business for a variety of reasons. Customers making refund claims under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, a legal protection for credit card users on purchases of between 100 pounds ($125) and 30,000 pounds, were also being told that applications would be handled case by case, Which?

    UK finance jobseekers increase 43% in first quarter, coronavirus impacts hiring

    The number of UK finance professionals seeking new jobs rose by more than 40% in the first quarter compared with the last three months of 2019, even as coronavirus forced employers to pause hiring and cut salary offers by 37%, data released on Monday showed. According to the latest Morgan McKinley London Employment Monitor, the UK financial services industry suffered a rapid slowdown in hiring in March, arresting a sharp post-Election rebound in January, when the number of available roles increased 97% compared with December 2019 levels. "Out of the frying pan and into the fire: we barely got to take a breath between Brexit and this new global crisis," said Hakan Enver, managing director of Morgan McKinley UK.

    Fresh review of Lloyds payouts over HBOS fraud begins

    A retired High Court judge has been appointed to re-review compensation paid by Lloyds Banking Group <LLOY.L> to victims of one of Britain's biggest banking scandals after an earlier review found victims were likely paid too little. Lloyds has paid out more than 100 million pounds to 191 small business owners defrauded by its Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) branch in Reading, England. Former judge David Foskett has been appointed to chair a panel to re-assess the claims, including direct and consequential losses resulting from the fraud, said Ross Cranston.

    Britain says Basel bank rule delay will aid response to coronavirus

    Delaying remaining elements of new global bank capital rules for a year will give lenders in Britain time to focus on dealing with fallout from the coronavirus epidemic, the Bank of England and Britain's finance ministry said on Thursday. "This will provide operational capacity for banks and supervisors to respond to the immediate financial stability priorities from the impact of Covid-19," the BoE's Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and finance ministry said in a joint statement. The PRA and finance ministry said they were committed to the full, timely and consistent implementation of the new rules and "we will work together towards a UK implementation timetable that is consistent with the one year delay".

    UK investors tell companies to rethink bonuses if scrapping dividends

    Britain's investment managers would expect banks and other companies to rethink bonuses if they are scrapping payouts to shareholders, the Investment Association said on Wednesday. Top UK banks have scrapped dividends for 2019 and interim dividends for 2020 after being asked to do so by the Bank of England, with other firms also stopping payouts as the economy remains in lockdown. The current situation should, however, not be used to "rebase or reduce" dividends unneccesarily, IA Chief Executive Chris Cummings said in a statement.

    New accounting rule for virus-hit banks faces first big test

    An accounting rule introduced after the global financial crisis faces its first big test as banks seek relief in the face of government calls to keep coronavirus-hit borrowers afloat. Known as IFRS9, it is mandatory in over 100 countries, including the European Union and Britain, but not in the United States, where there is a tougher version with full upfront provisioning for expected losses. "Obviously IFRS 9 is an issue for us and all banks in terms of how we recognise any provision," Alison Rose, chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland, said on Tuesday.

    Europe's banks warn of investment cuts, falling income as virus hits

    LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - Some of Europe's biggest banks have warned the coronavirus will hit their already under-pressure earnings, as a lockdown in Britain and across parts of continental Europe will slow economic activity, eat into fee income and put corporate borrowers at risk. Societe Generale <SOGN.PA> Chief Executive Frederic Oudea said on Tuesday it was too early to say what would be the impact of the virus on the bank's earnings, but that mortgage lending will suffer. Britain's Lloyds Banking Group <LLOY.L> will delay part of a 3 billion pound technology investment programme in response to the epidemic, Chief Executive Antonio Horta-Osorio told the same conference.

    RPT-UK banks press for scrapping stress tests in face of coronavirus - sources

    Britain's banks have asked the Bank of England to scrap this year's stress test of lenders and to soften rules to help them cushion expected losses as the coronavirus pandemic hits their staff and customers, banking sources said on Friday. "It would be stupid to run a stress test during a stress," a senior banker told Reuters. The central bank's Financial Policy Committee, which monitors risks in the financial system, typically agrees scenarios for the annual test of banks' resilience at its first quarter meeting and publishes them on March 24.

    Britain plans to apply Basel bank capital rules in full

    Britain said on Wednesday it plans to fully implement globally-agreed bank capital rules that were a response to the financial crisis a decade ago. Tougher Basel capital rules were devised by global financial regulators to prevent a repeat of the 2008 crisis when taxpayers had to bail out undercapitalised banks. Much of the package has been implemented but some remaining elements will come into force over the next few years and European banks have been lobbying to water some of them down.

    Bank shares rise after BoE slashes rates

    Shares in Britain's top lenders resisted big falls on Wednesday after the Bank of England said banks could tap special capital reserves to keep lending to businesses and households as the coronavirus tightens its grip on Europe. The move is expected to mitigate further pressure on bank profit margins following the BoE's surprise cut in interest rates by half a percentage point to 0.25%, as the central bank looks to bolster Britain's economy in the face of the outbreak. Shares in Britain's biggest domestic lender, Lloyds Banking Group were trading up 2.4%, while shares in Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland gained 3.5% and 2.3% respectively.

    City bosses see tough fish for finance trade-off in UK-EU talks

    Britain will likely secure only temporary access to the European Union financial market under a broader trade deal in which finance may take a back seat to sectors such as fishing, financial industry officials said on Wednesday. Britain and the EU start talks next week on a trade deal that would come into effect next January after the "standstill" transition period that followed Brexit last month expires. Europe is Britain's biggest market for financial services exports, worth about 26 billion pounds annually, and access to the bloc would be under the EU's "equivalence" system.

    Britain's Lloyds hit by bad deeds and bad debts

    Paying a price for past misconduct, Britain's biggest domestic lender Lloyds Banking Group reported a 26% drop in annual profit on Thursday (February 20). It was hit by increasing bad debts and billions of pounds of customer compensation. Provisions to cover payouts to customers mis-sold a type of insurance reached over $3 billion in 2019. The rise in bad loans also hinted at potential trouble ahead for Britain. Lloyds is viewed as a bellwether for the country's economy. That's because it is the largest provider of home loans and one of its biggest backers of businesses. The bank remains upbeat though, saying the economy remains "resilient." Its CEO said that despite uncertainty over Britain's post-Brexit trading relationships, the country now has "a clear sense of direction". Lloyds shares rose 3% in early trade, outperforming the FTSE 350 banking index.
