    RBS (RBS) sells its aircraft leasing division to Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG) for $7.3B, a smidge higher than the whisper number. It's RBS's largest single disposal of assets since its 2008 bailout. RBS +4.5% in London. (SMFG statement)

    Financials (XLF -0.8%) slip in early trading, particularly large European banks such as Deutsche Bank (DB -3.2%) and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS -2.7%). The news that European banks left record overnight deposits with the ECB indicates an unwillingness to lend to each other, overshadowing the successful Italian bond auctions. BAC -2.3%, C -1.4%.

    In a long-awaited report, the FSA slams RBS (RBS) and U.K. regulators over RBS' near-collapse in 2008 following its takeover of ABN Amro. The watchdog listed six reasons for RBS' failure, including over-reliance on risky short-term wholesale funding and weaknesses in the bank's capital position. RBS -5.5% in London. (RBS response)

    Shares in banks from both sides of the pond are having a fine time of it, apparently boosted by the latest (doomed?) attempts to stem the eurozone debt crisis.

    In spite of the bad news from Italy, major U.K. banks are rallying strongly today, perhaps bolstered by Lloyd's (LYG +6.7%) deal on Thursday to sell $1.75B in distressed loan assets. RBS +9.3%. BCS +5.4%. Their American counterparts aren't doing too badly either. GS +2.1%. MS +2.8%. BAC +2.4%. C +2.6%. WFC +1.9%.
