06:56 EDTLYGLloyds Banking lowers 2012 impairment charge expectations to GBP 6B
Lloyds Banking said it remains confident in achieving its existing guidance, including for the Group banking net interest margin to be around 1.93% for 2012. In addition it now expects the cost base to be close to GBP 10B in 2012, two years ahead of the original plan, a reduction of around GBP 1B since 2010. Lloyds further lowered its guidance for the Groupís full year 2012 impairment charge to approximately GBP 6B, around GBP 1.2B lower than expectations at the beginning of the year. The bank added, "We continue to be successful in achieving reductions that are capital generative. We also expect to reach our long-term loan to deposit ratio target of 100 per cent for the core business in the first quarter of 2013, at the same time as reaching a 120 per cent loan to deposit ratio for the Group. We remain confident of meeting future regulatory capital requirements, and continue to explore with our regulators the benefits of becoming a ring-fenced bank ahead of the regulatory deadline."

06:39 EDTLYGEuropean banks take out EUR83B of loans from central bank, NY Times says
European banks agreed to take out EUR83B in low interest loans from the European Central Bank, as part of a program in which all of the funds must be loaned to businesses or individuals, or repaid to the central bank within two years, according to The New York Times. Several analysts had said that they would be disappointed if banks took out less than EUR100B in loans, but a number of analysts said that a second round of the program, due to occur in December after stress tests have been completed, may be more popular, the newspaper stated. Publicly traded European banks include Banco Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), Deutsche Bank (DB), HSBC (HSBC), ING Groep (ING), Lloyds Banking (LYG), Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and UBS (UBS).
