ECB to disclose large-scale bank data

|By:, SA News Editor

Prior to its takeover of European bank supervision on November 4, the ECB will release collections of data on the euro zone's 128 most important lenders to insure the banks can withstand future crises.

The published review in the second half of October will outline leverage measures, standardized ratios of non-performing loans and other statistics, giving the banks only two weeks to come up with plans to deal with capital shortfalls.
