Banking Weekly
  • US Financial Reform Bill, the G20 and 'stress tests' Jun 28, 2010 - 6:39 pm
  • In the podcast this week: A week of extraordinary change, from the passage of the US Financial Reform Bill at the 11th hour to new capital and liquidity pledges at the G20 summit in Toronto.

    Also up for discussion is the mounting pressure for wider stress testing of European banks and growing fears of a looming sovereign debt crisis.

    In particular Patrick Jenkins, having returned from Spain last week, looks at the Spanish response to the stress tests and their adamance about publishing all results from the bigger banks such as Santander to the smaller savings banks.

    Presented by Megan Murphy, with Patrick Jenkins, the FT's banking editor.

    Produced by LJ Filotrani
