settlement with the US Department of Justice over toxic mortgage securities
sold in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis was nearly half of the fine
initially levied in September. Credit Suisse also agreed to pay $5.3 billion to
the DOJ to settle similar charges

authorised a 20 billion-euro ($20.9 billion) fund to help lenders in distress -
first and foremost Monte deiPaschi.
Global Economic News:
US, UK growth
Already strong US gross domestic product figures
were revised higher in the final reading for the third quarter. Originally
reported at an annual rate of 3.3%, the economy grew 3.5%, according to an
estimate by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis. Q4 growth looks to be somewhat
less robust, with estimates in the 2.0% to 2.5% range at the moment. In the
United Kingdom, Q3 growth was also revised higher. On a quarter-over-quarter
basis, the UK economy expanded 0.6% in the three months following the Brexit
vote, up from an earlier 0.5% estimate.
Italy rescues world’s oldest bank
Italy’s government has authorized €20 billion
bailout of that country’s third-largest lender, Monte deiPaschi di Siena, after
the bank failed to raise sufficient capital in the financial markets to stay
afloat. Monte deiPaschi has been in operation since 1742.
Scotland threatens to bolt UK
If the United Kingdom does not remain a member of
the European Union’s single market, Scotland will hold another referendum on withdrawing
from it, Scottish first
minister Nicola Sturgeon said this week. Scotland voted to remain within in the
EU in last June’s referendum, as did Northern Ireland, but England and Wales
produced large enough majorities to win the day for the Leave campaign. In
2014, Scotland held a referendum on independence that was defeated 55% to 45%.
BOJ upgrades economic outlook
The Bank of Japan upgraded its economic assessment,
noting that a moderate recovery trend had continued while exports had picked
up. Improved foreign demand was credited with the export boost, along with a
weaker yen, which should help solidify the recovery, the bank said. The BOJ’s
super-easy monetary policy was left unchanged.
Pair of European banks settle US mortgage cases
Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse each agreed to
settle outstanding cases with the US Department of Justice involving the
mis-selling of mortgage-backed securities dating back to the global financial
crisis. Deutsche Bank settled for $7.2 billion, roughly half what the DOJ
proposed in September. Credit Suisse agreed to pay roughly $5.3 billion.
UK-based Barclays was unable to come to an agreement, and the DOJ has since
filed suit in the matter.
