HSBC CEO Stuart Gulliver commented, “2014 was a challenging year in which we continued to work hard to improve business performance while managing the impact of a higher operating cost base. Profits disappointed, although a tough fourth quarter masked some of the progress made over the preceding three quarters. Many of the challenging aspects of the fourth quarter results were common to the industry as a whole. In spite of this, there were a number of encouraging signs, particularly in Commercial Banking, Payments & Cash Management and renminbi products and services. We were also able to continue to grow the dividend.”

10:47 EDTSANNY AG says Santander Bank to adopt new policies regarding use of ChexSystems
New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that Santander Bank, N.A. (SAN) has agreed to adopt new policies governing its use of ChexSystems, a consumer-reporting agency that screens people seeking to open checking or savings accounts. Santander’s new policies are expected to allow thousands of additional New Yorkers and consumers nationwide to open bank accounts by September 30. The change comes amid concerns that screenings by ChexSystems and other consumer-reporting agencies, which are used by most of the nation’s banks, adversely affect lower-income applicants and force them to turn to high-cost alternative financial services like check-cashing outlets. With this agreement, Santander now joins Capital One (COF) and Citibank (C) as the third bank to commit to overhaul its use of ChexSystems. The three banks operate a combined 613 branches across New York State and 2,822 branches nationwide.
