List of European banks in risk - by P/B-ratio (price-to-book ratio)

Wikipedia: The price-to-book ratio, or P/B ratio, is a financial ratio used to compare a company's book value to its current market price. Book value is an accounting term denoting the portion of the company held by the shareholders; in other words, the company's total tangible assets less its total liabilities. The calculation can be performed in two ways, but the result should be the same each way.

Euro zone banks overnight deposits with the European Central Bank

Update 25 October 2011: The European Central Bank said banks in the euro area accessed less emergency overnight funding and deposits also fell.


Financial institutions borrowed 4 billion euros ($5.6 billion) at the rate of 2.25 percent, the ECB said, down from 4.6 billion the previous day. Banks also parked 198 billion euros with the Frankfurt-based central bank, down from 202 billion euros the day before.

Cumulative spillovers from high spread euro area sovereigns to the EU banking system - 300 bn euros

The epicenter of sovereign risk has been Greece, which generated the first of four waves of spillover to European banks. The analysis suggests that, first, spillovers on European bank exposures to the Greek sovereign have amounted to almost €60 billion (Figure 1.17). Second, as sovereign risks spread to other governments, the spillovers to banks have mounted. If the sovereign stresses in Ireland and Portugal are included, the total spillover rises to €80 billion. Third, the governments in Belgium, Italy, and Spain have also come under market pressure; incorporating credit risks from these sovereigns into the analysis further raises the total estimated spillover, to about €200 billion. Fourth, bank asset prices in the high-spread euro area have fallen in concert with sovereign stresses, leading to a rise in the credit risk of interbank exposures; including those exposures increases the total estimated spillover to €300 billion overall. Although these numbers are based on market assessments of credit risk, which may reflect a degree of overshooting, the underlying problems that they highlight are real.

FT reports: Siemens parked 4 to 6 bn euros at ECB - withdrew 500 million+ from either SocGen or Credit Agricole 2 weeks ago

FT reports that Siemens withdrew more than half-a-billion euros in cash deposits from a large French bank two weeks ago and transferred it to the European Central Bank, in a sign of how companies are seeking havens amid Europe’s sovereign debt crisis.

In total, Siemens has parked between €4bn ($5.4bn) and €6bn at the ECB’s facilities, mostly through one-week deposits, this person said. Only a handful of large companies have the banking licences that allow them to deposit cash directly with the ECB.

Deutsche Bank Pessimism: Ackermann Warns of Renewed Financial Crisis

Josef Ackermann, the CEO of Deutsche Bank, has said that the current market volatility reminds him of the days immediately preceding the collapse of Lehman Brothers. He also blasted the IMF, saying that calls for the mandatory recapitalization of European banks are "not helpful."

Bank funding stress threatens Europe credit crunch - Huw van Steenis, analyst at Morgan Stanley

The risk of a credit crunch in southern Europe is rising as banks face stress in their medium- to long-term funding, forcing some to shrink their lending, analysts said on Monday. European banks were rocked last week by concern about a squeeze for short-term funding, with tougher and more costly financing and a retreat by US money market funds prompting lenders to turn to the European Central Bank (ECB) for more cash. France's banks were hit particularly hard.
