07:26 EDTBCS, CSBank use of rating agencies to measure risk to be restricted, FT reports
The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is seeking to sharply reduce the scope to which banks will be allowed to rely on external ratings from credit agencies like McGraw Hill Financial's (MHFI) S&P Ratings and Moody's (MCO) to assess the risks in their portfolios, reported Financial Times. Another Basel initiative aims to limit banks’ ability to game the system using internal models to calculate capital, said FT. A spokesperson for Moody’s told the FT: “We have long advocated reducing mechanistic reliance by regulators on any single risk indicator, including credit ratings. We believe our ratings will continue to serve market participants as a valuable source of insight on credit risk.” Publicly traded large European banks 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).

The Bank of England said that all but one of the eight banks passed its stress test. The one bank, Co-operative, needs to submit a revised plan to strengthen its balance sheet. Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds (LYG) and Co-operative were found to be the most susceptible to a housing crash and spike in unemployment. RBS and Lloyds passed the stress test, however. Both banks need improved capital positions, but have already put in place plans to do so, the central bank's Prudential Regulation Authority stated. Reference Link

10:17 EDTCS, BCSFINRA fines Barclays Capital, Citigroup Global Markets, others $43.5M total
FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) – $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) – $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) – $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) – $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) – $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) – $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) – $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) – $4M; Needham & Company LLC – $2.5M. In addition, FINRA found that six of the 10 firms — Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Needham — had inadequate supervisory procedures related to research analyst participation in investment banking pitches. Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.
