Rba says banks lifted rates to boost profits, but they could still have to cut back
A year on from the crisis, some banks have begun to show signs of some degree of impro바카라사이트vement.
The Bank of Ireland, the Bank of England and others have all raised their deposit rates.
However, there are still several concerns raised about their impact and the future of the sector.
How does the European bailout work?

The European rescue plan was implemented on 1 July 2012 when banks and other finan우리카지노cial institutions in the 17 eurozone countries broke up following the Greek bailout.
Under the plan, each of the 27 member states is responsible for paying its own way for banks broken up by the f더킹카지노inancial crisis.
They are obliged to provide some banks with some of the money they need to recapitalise. But their money is not directly involved in the recapitalisation process.
By September 2013, €78bn had been spent by the EU countries in the crisis, with another €31bn due to be paid by next year’s bailout.
The aim of the rescue was to bring a much-needed rescue of the banking system to an end – to put the country back on an even keel.
The UK government, which received £40bn of the EU funds, will get the majority of these funds. The European Central Bank, which lent $8.5bn of the money, will also receive about 20% of the total funding.
But even though the European bailout will help, analysts are worried about the long-term implications.
Are banks too big?

The cost of the UK’s role in the bail-out is very much higher than that of other EU countries.
In some areas, like Spain, the costs of the rescue have been borne by the Spanish economy as a whole, but the UK’s spending will be borne by banks and government agencies in a country where there are concerns about the sustainability of public finances.
The problem there is that if there is no bail-out, public borrowing costs – both public and private – will rise.
The Treasury says the public is unlikely to have the savings needed for the next election.
But that’s not the only risk, as the UK’s role as a bail-out does open up banks, especially British ones, to more competition for customers.
