Investment Markets Overview – w/e 28 Sep 2012

Last year European banks pledged to cut more than $1.2 trillion of assets to help them weather the sovereign-debt crisis. Since then they’ve increased assets by 7% to $45 trillion as at 31st July and they have Mario Draghi to thank. The ECB president’s decision nine months ago to provide more than 1 trillion euros of three-year loans to banks eased the pressure to sell assets at depressed prices and now the opportunity has passed. According to banking analysts they will need another ECB injection to roll over the first one, just to keep the balance sheets of Italian banks in business. Meanwhile, Spanish banks are “bleeding” deposits as the government debates whether to seek a bailout as $US 34BN was drained from Spanish bank accounts in July, driving the ratio of loans to deposits among lenders to a worrying 187%. A recent stress test of Spain’s banking sector revealed capital needs of $77BN to clean up their balance sheets of some $143BN of toxic real estate loans.
