Brazil's antitrust watchdog Cade is investigating four banks in the country for allegedly creating competition hurdles to digital banking newcomer Nubank, the watchdog said in a statement on Monday. Cade said Banco do Brasil SA, Caixa Economica Federal, Banco Santander Brasil SA and Banco Bradesco SA were denying requests to schedule automatic payments from Nubank clients that also were account holders at those banks. It said the banks would be given a chance to defend themselves and then the case would be sent to the Cade's Administrative Court, which would give a final ruling.

Major finance and tech firms are pouring money into startups building technology to develop the crypto market, even though they're steering clear of the volatile currencies themselves. Venture capital investments in crypto and blockchain startups that included funds from corporates have raced to $850 million so far this year, data compiled by PitchBook for Reuters shows. The lack of mainstream embrace has sown serious doubts over the potential of cryptocurrencies to evolve from speculative tokens to means of payment capable of rivaling fiat money.

France's Credit Agricole and Spain's Santander plan to combine their custody and asset servicing operations, in a deal that could point the way for European banks to achieve scale without the complexity of a full merger. The new business will have around $3.8 trillion (£2.9 trillion) of assets under custody, closing the gap on European leaders and providing scope for savings and cost reductions. Credit Agricole will own 69.5 percent of the merged unit, which will keep the brand name of Agricole's existing asset management arm - Caceis.
French bank Crédit Agricole has agreed to take over the global custody operations of its Spanish rival Banco Santander to create a new business with $3.8tn of assets as European lenders join forces to achieve greater scale. Crédit Agricole will own 69.5 per cent and Santander 30.5 per cent of the new entity, which will include the Spanish lender’s S3 custody businesses in Spain, Brazil, Mexico and Colombia as well as the French bank’s operations, known as CACEIS. It will have €3.3tn in assets under custody and €1.8bn in assets under administration, with a strong presence in fast-growing Latin America, the companies said in statements on Wednesday.

The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) is the network that banks and other financial institutions use for transferring information securely. Most major financial institutions use SWIFT, as it is considered the gold standard for reliable and secure financial messaging. Originally founded in the 1970s, SWIFT was created when banks around the world decided to collaborate to solve the problem of cross-border payments.
The bank infuriated many of its debt-holders back in February, when it chose to break an established convention and not redeem (or “call,” to use the industry parlance) a similar 1.5 billion euro note, known as a perpetual contingent convertible (or CoCo for short). There has also always been an unwritten rule – in Europe, at least – that they would be called by the issuer on or before their expected redemption date, offering investors some certainty. Given all of this, some market commentators are interpreting Santander’s decision this week to call a separate $1.5 billion (dollar-denominated) CoCo as some kind of olive branch to debt investors.
SANTANDER, Spain/MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Santander has offered to take full control of its Mexican business through a 2.6 billion euro (£2.3 billion) all-share deal as the Spanish bank chases potentially higher returns available from Latin America. The deal proposed on Friday, which was broadly welcomed by analysts but described as "oppressive" by a major investor, will unwind Santander's listing of 25% of the bank on the Mexican stock exchange in 2012. While record-low interest rates have prevailed across the euro zone for the past 10 years, benchmark rates in Mexico stand at 8.25%, the highest since the 2008 global financial crisis.

Banks and the auto sector were the biggest boosts to the benchmark on the day. Italy's MIB led gains in the region with its 0.8 percent rise, having hit an eight-month high earlier the session, while German shares closed up 0.5 percent.

European shares ticked lower on Friday, dragged down by banks, while lingering worries over global growth kept investors on edge before the crucial earnings season in the United States. The pan-European STOXX 600 index was down 0.2 percent at 0718 GMT, on track to end the week lower after two weeks of gains.

Three Germans on trial in Switzerland for helping expose a tax-stripping scheme that cost European governments billions of euros will likely avoid prison after a verdict on Thursday that fell well short of prosecutors' demands. The men, Stuttgart-based lawyer Eckart Seith and two former employees of Basel-based Bank J. Safra Sarasin, had faced up to 3-1/2 years in prison for numerous charges. "The Zurich District Court condemns three persons, accused of transferring a bank customer list to a German lawyer, for multiple violations of the banking law," the court said in a statement, adding one banker was also found guilty of industrial espionage and coercion.
Almost 40 percent of the $140 billion in corporate bonds issued in the region last year were denominated in local currencies, the highest percentage since 2012, according to data from Fitch Ratings. Already this year, Brazilian oil giant Petrobras placed almost $1 billion worth of real-denominated bonds and Banco Santander Chile retapped the first-ever floating-rate peso bond sold in the local market. Finance chiefs slashed international debt sales almost 40 percent in 2018 as they avoided the costs of hedging against a strong U.S dollar.
Companies working with artificial intelligence need to install accountability mechanisms to prevent its being misused, the European Commission said on Monday, under new ethical guidelines for a technology open to abuse. The European Union initiative taps in to a global debate about when or whether companies should put ethical concerns before business interests, and how tough a line regulators can afford to take on new projects without risking killing off innovation. It is only with trust that our society can fully benefit from technologies," the Commission digital chief, Andrus Ansip, said in a statement.
