European stocks jump after Italian bank bailout

On Monday, European equities leapt because Italy announced that it would pay €17 billion in taxpayers’ money for the purpose of bailing out two of its regional banks.

The Euro Stoxx 50 surged 0.91%, Germany’s DAX 30 gained 0.71% and France’s CAC 40 added 1.04%.

On Sunday, the Italian government announced its intention to wind down Banca Popolare di Vicenza along with Veneto Banca.

As part of this deal, the country’s largest retail bank Intesa Sanpaolo is bound to get the good assets from both lenders as well as €4.8 billion from the government just to sustain its capital ratio.

Aside from that, Rome will ensure state guarantees for the nonperforming loans, which could reach €12 billion.

Meanwhile, Italian bank stocks climbed up on the back of the news with UBI Banca, Intesa, UniCredit, Mediobanca, Banca Pop Emilia Romagna as well as Banco Bpm all surged more than 2% on Monday.

In London, the FTSE 100 inched up 0.55%.
