06:11 EDTINGING Group to cut 2,400 employees by 2015
ING says "Retail Banking Netherlands is expanding the transformation programme started in 2011, leading to approximately 1,400 additional redundancies by the end of 2015 and reducing expenses by an additional EUR 120M per annum from 2016 onwards. At ING Bank in Belgium, employee headcount is expected to decline by 1,000 FTEs by 2015, through natural attrition, leading to EUR 150M in annual cost savings by 2015. These initiatives come on top of measures announced in Commercial Banking and Insurance Europe last quarter. Combined, all of these programmes accounted for EUR 452 million in after-tax restructuring provisions booked in 2012, but they are essential to drive future performance, reducing annual expenses by a combined EUR 1B by 2015."

06:32 EDTINGLarge EU banks may come under scrutiny for reciprocity, WSJ says
The banking practice of reciprocity -- giving work to competitor banks in order to foster relationships or reward past deals -- may come under investigation by the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing a person familiar with the regulator. The FCA believes the practice may be anticompetitive, but it hasn't yet determined the scope of its investigation into EU banks. Publicly traded companies in the space include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), RBS (RBS) and UBS (UBS).

13:07 EDTINGEU official: Euro banks shouldn't also go through Fed's stress test, WSJ says
Jonathan Hill, the European Unionís new financial markets chief, told The Wall Street Journal that he does not see a need for the U.S. to give stress tests to European banks that have already received health checks in Europe. Hill says banks across Europe are "properly and sensibly capitalized." The WSJ reported last week that the U.S. units of two European banks, Deutsche Bank (DB) and Banco Santander (SAN), are set to fail the Federal Reserve's stress tests, though they passed ECB stress tests last year.
