    China to aid cross-border yuan flows ahead of MSCI inclusion

    China's central bank announced a series of measures on Friday to support cross-border fund flows, in an apparent effort to avoid a potential liquidity crunch in the offshore yuan market around June 1, when Chinese shares will be included in MSCI's benchmark indexes. China's MSCI entry is expected to trigger a surge in foreign money flows into yuan-denominated A shares, largely via cross-border stock connect schemes with Hong Kong, potentially boosting demand for the offshore yuan. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) said in a statement that banks involved in offshore yuan clearing and settlement can tap liquidity from the onshore market, while urging clearing banks to come up with contingency plans to deal with liquidity risks.

    Germany's DZ Bank to sell parts of DVB after muted interest for whole business - sources

    LONDON/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany's No.2 lender DZ Bank plans to sell certain assets of its troubled ship and aircraft financing division DVB after receiving muted interest for the whole business, four sources familiar with the matter said. The sources, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the matter, said DZ Bank, which is also the umbrella organisation of German cooperative bank chain Raiffeisen-Volksbanken, would start by selling DVB's aviation and land transport finance portfolios, followed by its shipping and offshore portfolios. Two of the sources said asset managers Apollo Global Management (APO.N) and Cerberus Capital Management were interested in the aviation segment.

    China's Big Five banks log fastest first-quarter profit growth in four years

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's Big Five state-owned banks posted their fastest first-quarter net profit growth in four years, while their ratio of soured debt remained steady. China's biggest lenders are in the midst of a revival, posting faster profit growth and generally healthier net interest margins after years of rising bad debt as economic growth slowed down. On Friday, Agricultural Bank of China Ltd (AgBank), reported a 5.43 percent rise in first-quarter net profit, while the country's largest bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd (ICBC), said its net profit grew 4 percent over the same period.

    China to cut RRR further, M2 growth seen accelerating - MNI

    China will further cut the amount of cash that lenders must keep in reserves, and broad M2 money supply growth will accelerate this year, Market News International reported on Tuesday, citing a source close to the central bank. The report comes amid growing speculation that China is considering shifting its monetary policy to a looser bias, as the threat of a trade war with the United States adds to worries about an expected slowdown in the world's second-largest economy in coming months. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) last week cut reserve requirement ratios (RRR) for most banks, hours after the statistics bureau reported softer-than-expected industrial output and investment growth for March, suggesting economic momentum may already be starting to slow.

    China's largest banks feel wind in their sails as profits rebound

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's top lenders are reporting their best profit growth in three years on better net interest margins, with Beijing's crackdown on shadow financing and high leverage expected to further drive recovery this year. The strong 2017 results suggest that Beijing has been successful in pushing smaller lenders to cut their exposure to riskier financing practices - in turn helping reduce competition for the state-backed behemoths. "The banks that will do well this year are those that have national franchises, "safe" brands, relatively clean balance sheets, competitive products, sticky core deposits and strong credit skills," said John Ott, partner with Bain & Company and a leader with its Greater China financial services practice.
