11:49 EDTRBSMoody's reviewing Royal Bank of Scotland's ratings for downgrade
Moody's Investors Service has placed on review for downgrade Royal Bank of Scotland plc's A3 supported long-term debt and deposit ratings, the ratings for the bank's subordinated debt, junior subordinated debt and capital instruments. The long-term ratings of the holding the company, Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc, were also placed on review for downgrade. The firm's Prime-2 short-term ratings were affirmed. Moody's rating action follows the publication of a recent trading update, in which RBS's management indicated that the group's year-end 2013 results would be materially impacted by additional provisions for pending litigations and conduct-related costs. As a result, the bank will report a weaker than previously anticipated regulatory capital position at end-December 2013, weakening its standalone credit profile. During the review, Moody's will assess whether the bank's credit fundamentals remain compatible with the current ratings given (1) the challenges and risks RBS faces in relation to the execution of its recovery plan; and (2) any actions that RBS's management could pursue in the short-term that could effectively mitigate these risks and further boost the bank's regulatory capital position. Moody's has placed on review for downgrade all long-term ratings of National Westminster Bank plc and Royal Bank of Scotland NV.

06:39 EDTRBSEuropean 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).
