MILAN (Reuters) - Italian lender Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MIL:BMPS) has already paid one billion euros (844.87 million pounds) of cheap three-year loans (LTRO) given by the European Central Bank, the bank's CFO said on Monday.
"We have already started to repay the LTRO," Bernardo Mingrone said in a conference call on the bank's guidelines for its new 2013-2017 business plan.
Monte Paschi received 29 billion euros of LTRO money from the ECB.
