(Bloomberg) -- Banco de Sabadell SA, the Spanish bank under pressure to bolster its capital, is making preparations for a potential sale of its asset management business, people familiar with the matter said.Sabadell, which has been conducting a strategic review of the business for the past few months, is now leaning toward a sale of part or all of the unit, according to the people. A formal auction process could kick off later this autumn, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.The Spanish lender hired JPMorgan Chase & Co. earlier this year to explore options for the business including bringing in a strategic partner, a person with knowledge of the matter said in March. In June, El Confidencial newspaper reported that the plan had been shelved, citing sources it didn’t identify.Shares of Sabadell have fallen about 32% over the past year, giving the bank a market value of 5.1 billion euros ($5.5 billion). A representative for Sabadell declined to comment.The Alicante-based bank has come under pressure for having low levels of core capital, a measure of its ability to absorb losses. A botched information technology platform transfer at U.K. unit TSB Banking Group Plc and a protracted period of low interest rates forced the bank in July to lower its core revenue guidance for the year.Consolidation in the asset management industry is increasing as competition from large rivals such as BlackRock Inc. and Vanguard Group cuts into margins and puts pressure on firms to seek economies of scale. Societe Generale SA is considering options for its Lyxor asset-management business, people familiar with the matter said in August. Deutsche Bank AG and UBS Group AG abandoned talks in May to combine their asset management businesses in a deal that would have created a European giant.Sabadell Asset Management, created in 1987, had more than 16 billion euros of assets under management at the end of 2018.To contact the reporters on this story: Charlie Devereux in Madrid at firstname.lastname@example.org;Jan-Henrik Förster in Zurich at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Dale Crofts at firstname.lastname@example.org, ;Ben Scent at email@example.com, Ross Larsen, James HertlingFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
European stocks rallied on Thursday as investors snapped up battered shares of eurozone banks after the U.S. Federal Reserve toned down expectations of further interest rate cuts. Shares of Italian and Spanish banks including Bankia SA , UBI Banca and Banco Sabadell were among the top gainers on the STOXX 600 after the Fed cut rates as expected on Wednesday, but signalled there would be a higher bar to further cut in borrowing costs. European banks, along with sectors such as miners and automakers, have gained in the recent weeks as investors rotated into cyclical sectors due to signs of easing U.S.-China trade tensions and assurances of support from major central banks.
A rally in banking shares and other recently battered sectors such as oil and gas and automakers kept the mood buoyant in European stock markets on Tuesday, as investors speculated over policy measures by the European Central Bank later this week. The pan-European STOXX 600 index, after opening in the red, closed 0.1% higher as the banking index climbed for a fifth session, its best five-day rally since April 2017. Oil and gas, basic resources and automakers - among the worst-hit sectors this year on worries over the U.S.-China trade war, Brexit and a global slowdown - gained between 0.2% and 2%.
European shares fell on Thursday as mixed readings of business growth across major economies and uncertainty over the U.S. interest rate outlook made investors nervous, while a jump in the pound dented London stocks. The latest data showed business growth in the euro zone recovering marginally in August but factory activity shrinking in both Japan and the United States, raising questions about the health of the global economy. The pan-European STOXX 600 index ended 0.4% lower, with euro zone equities down 0.6%.

Retail bank TSB needs to turnaround its business and cut costs before becoming a candidate for a sale or to take part in any consolidation in Britain, the chairman of parent Banco Sabadell said on Wednesday. Sabadell bought TSB for £1.7 billion in 2015 to expand into Britain and challenge incumbent retail banks. TSB has also been hit by an IT glitch forcing the bank to hire 2,100 staff to help fix the problems which left customers locked out of their online accounts for weeks.
The incoming chief executive of Britain's TSB will work on a plan to slash costs at the loss-making bank owned by Spain's Banco Sabadell, including potential staff cuts and relocations, a banking source said. Debbie Crosbie, who is expected to take over at TSB in just over a month, will work on a new strategy as it tries to regain confidence after a botched switch to a new IT platform. TSB, which was bought by Sabadell in 2015, has had to hire more than 2,100 staff to help fix IT problems which left customers locked out of their online accounts for weeks.

Goldman Sachs is among the investors in a $20 million fundraising for financial technology firm Bud, the two companies said on Monday, the latest in a series of investments by big global banks seeking to partner with fintechs. Bud, which is already backed by HSBC, is one of a number of upstart firms taking advantage of Britain's new Open Banking rules to try and help users manage their finances better by combining data from multiple banks and service providers. Fintech companies such as Bud have moved quickly to try to capitalise on the new rules designed to promote competition and make it easier for users to see all their financial products in one place.
Britain's TSB Bank, a subsidiary of Spain's Sabadell, plunged to a 105.4 million pound ($137.9 million) loss last year as costs from a major IT meltdown ratcheted up further. Executives at TSB were deprived of their bonuses after the bill for a botched IT upgrade that locked nearly two million customers out of their accounts rose to 330 million pounds. Instead of awarding bonuses to executives, all TSB's remaining 8,300 staff received a bonus of 1,500 pounds for the year.
