Lloyds Banking Group signalled a complete recovery from the financial crisis on Wednesday with its highest full-year profit in a decade, boosting the British government's ambition to return it to full private ownership in the next few months. As the most exposed among the major British banks to any downturn in the British economy, with 97 percent of its business in the UK, Lloyds has confounded expectations that last year's vote to quit the European Union would squeeze profits. Shares in Britain's biggest mortgage lender rose 3.8 percent by 0902 GMT, the best performing stock in the benchmark FTSE 100 index after it said 2016 pretax profit was 4.2 billion pounds ($5.25 billion), more than double that in 2015.
