Bank Stress Tests

Ten European banks have been tested by the European Banking Authority and results are to be published later today. In total 90 banks are being tested including Lyold's Banking Group and the Royal Bank of Scotland.

These tests are a more hardened version of the previous stress tests after there were concerns that they were not testing enough.

Banks will be required to publish their sovereign debt exposure to the public and then for the public to come to their own conclusions about the data and to the strength of the banks.

Stay tuned for a quick update on these results later.

Kind Regards,
