    Ex-Lloyds bank bosses used 'spin and puff' in HBOS deal, court told

    Former bosses of Lloyds Banking Group (LLOY.L) used "spin and sales puff" to win over investors and secure a "disastrous" acquisition of rival HBOS during the credit crisis, a lawyer for thousands of shareholders told London's High Court on Wednesday. Around 6,000 Lloyds investors, who are seeking around 550 million pounds in damages, allege that five former directors at Lloyds, including ex-CEO Eric Daniels, concealed information about HBOS's financial position in 2008 and 2009 and breached their duties by recommending the purchase. On the first day of a 14-week London trial, the claimant's lawyer Richard Hill told the court that the deal saved HBOS from nationalisation but looked like a catastrophe for Lloyds within days of completion in early 2009.

    Lloyds investors 'mugged' on HBOS purchase, trial hears

    The High Court has heard shareholders in Lloyds were "mugged" when the bank recommended buying Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) at the height of the financial crisis. The allegation was made by the barrister representing a group of 5,803 former Lloyds TSB shareholders at the start of a trial aimed at recovering more than £550m from the bank. The group, which includes roughly 300 institutional investors such as pension funds, is suing Lloyds Banking Group, former chairman Sir Victor Blank, ex-chief executive Eric Daniels, former chief financial officer Tim Tookey and two other former directors.

    Lloyds snubs £500m settlement bid as HBOS merger trial kicks off

    Lloyds Banking Group has rejected a last-ditch bid to settle a legal claim over the disastrous merger that created Britain’s biggest high street lender, days before a trial featuring some of the country's most prominent financiers is due to begin. Sky News has learnt that the Lloyds Shareholder Action Group (LSAG) last week told the bank that it would abandon its claim in exchange for a payment of roughly £500m, according to insiders. Sources close to Lloyds said on Monday that the offer from Harcus Sinclair, the law firm acting for the claimant group of 6,000 former Lloyds TSB investors, was immediately rejected by the bank.

    UK lenders plan biggest consumer lending curb since late 2008 -BoE

    British lenders are planning the biggest cutback in consumer loans in nearly 10 years, the Bank of England said on Thursday, after it warned repeatedly about the strong pace of lending to households. The BoE's quarterly net balance of lenders' expectations for the availability of unsecured lending over the next three months fell to -28.6 from -16.2. The BoE has said there is no overall debt bubble in Britain but it has expressed concern about consumer debt, which had been growing at about 10 percent a year.

    Domestic banks help FTSE edge ahead

Britain's blue-chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index was up 0.4 percent at 7,538.27 points at its close, while the more domestically-focused mid-cap (.FTMC) index added 0.2 percent, boosted by some well-received earnings updates. After hitting record highs in May thanks to the weakness in the pound that followed Britain's decision to leave the EU, the rally in the FTSE has lost steam as sterling strengthened and the Bank of England turned more hawkish.

    Bank of England says Brexit transition deal needed by Christmas

    Britain's banks need a watertight Brexit transition deal by Christmas to avoid a potentially disorderly shift of people and operations to the European Union, a top Bank of England official said on Wednesday. BoE Deputy Governor Sam Woods said that while the British government wants a deal to bridge leaving the EU in March 2019 and the start of new trading terms, the EU's position was still unclear and the clock was ticking. "If we get to Christmas and the negotiations have not reached any agreement on this topic, diminishing marginal returns will kick in," Woods told the annual City Banquet in London's "Square Mile" financial district.
