    Spain's Santander cancels final dividend on 2019 earnings

    Spain's Santander will cancel the payment of a final dividend against its 2019 earnings and save the money to boost capital defences against the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. The European Central Bank has told lenders to skip dividend payments and share buybacks until October at the earliest and use profits to support an economy hamstrung by restrictions on movement implemented to stop the spread of the virus. Santander will wait until "there is more visibility of the effects of the COVID-19 crisis" and its own 2020 financial results are known before proposing any dividend payments.

    European hedge funds struggle as short-selling bans disrupt strategies

    European hedge funds struggled to navigate the coronavirus-induced extreme market volatility during March, with many down by double-digits in the space of a few weeks as short-selling bans hampered their strategies. Regulators in France, Italy, Belgium and Spain ordered temporary short-selling bans to stop investors betting on a fall in the share price of companies ranging from Spanish bank Santander to Air France-KLM and Italian automaker Fiat Chrysler. Short-selling is a strategy often used by so-called 'event-driven' or 'merger-arbitrage' hedge funds that bet on takeover or merger deals, reducing their risk by shorting, or selling, the acquirer and buying the target company.

    Santander Brasil says won't fire workers during coronavirus 'critical period'

    Banco Santander Brasil SA , one of Brazil's top lenders, said on Monday that it would refrain from firing workers "amid the most critical period" of the coronavirus outbreak. The bank, which has roughly 47,000 employees, did not specify what it meant by the "most critical period" of the pandemic. Last week, Santander Brasil said it would furlough part of its workforce for 15 days in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro as it closes some branches in both cities due to the coronavirus outbreak.

During the euro zone sovereign debt crisis, there was a direct link between Spanish or Italian banks and the debt issued by their respective governments. Sure other banks like Banco Santander are suffering with a 4.5% fall but that's still below the European average for the sector.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Fed's short-term funding CP plan boosts stocks, dollar

    A gauge of global equity markets and gold rose on Tuesday after the U.S. Federal Reserve said it would buy short-term corporate debt directly from companies to help relieve credit markets under strain by the impact of coronavirus epidemic. The Fed said the Treasury would provide $10 billion of credit protection to the central bank's commercial paper operation. Gold snapped a five-session decline on the funding effort and stocks on Wall Street rose as the move eased growing fears of a liquidity crunch due to the coronavirus.

    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.

    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.

    Spain's top banks encourage 'virtual' AGMs as coronavirus precaution

    Spain's largest banks sought to minimise the business effects of the coronavirus outbreak on Tuesday, with Santander and BBVA both calling on shareholders to participate remotely at their annual general meetings. Twenty-eight people have died in Spain from the coronavirus, with the number of cases jumping on Monday to 1,204, one of Europe's highest, but far less than in Italy. Santander , Spain's largest bank, said that as a precautionary measure it had asked employees in its corporate centres in Madrid to work from home for the next 15 days, while a BBVA spokesman said it had closed a building in the capital as a result of a confirmed case of coronavirus.
