  • New Linklaters report: European banks face major credit risks over bad loans (City A.M.) European banks are still holding onto an estimated €826 billion (£588 billion, $905 billion) of non-performing loans, despite increased oversight, according to a new report out today. Global law firm Linklaters estimated that since the European Central Bank (ECB) introduced its Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) last November, non-performing loan (NPL) volumes across European banks have remained high, reducing only marginally from €841 billion to €826 billion. Econintersect: Remember 10 and 20 years ago when westerners derided Japanese banks for failure to get bad loans off their books? Enlargement and the euro are two big mistakes that ruined Europe (Financial Times) Wolfgang Munchau:

I put it down to two catastrophic errors committed during the 1990s and at the beginning of this millennium. The first was the introduction of the euro; the second, the EU's enlargement to 28 members from 15 a couple of decades ago. You might agree with one or other of these statements, or with neither of them. But few people will agree with both.

China

  • China Banks Enter Eye of Storm Adding Risky Debt to Wealth Funds (Bloomberg) Chinese retail money managers are reaching for yield. The wealth-management products that banks sell at branches across China are often considered as safe as deposits by customers. There are growing reasons to question that faith. The ability of Chinese lenders' $2.4 trillion of WMPs to generate the returns they promise is being undermined as monetary easing has pushed corporate bond yields to a five-year low. Loath to lose market share by advertising weaker performance, managers of the funds have been adding leverage, extending maturities and buying higher-yielding notes that are rarely traded, according to consultancy CNBenefit and HSBC Holdings Plc.
