Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc, a leading subprime auto lender, will pay $11.8 million to settle claims that it misled customers about the cost and terms of auto loans and insurance, a U.S. consumer watchdog said on Tuesday. Santander Consumer, an affiliate of the Spanish banking group Banco Santander SA, promised drivers lower monthly fees by allowing them to make interest-only payments without explaining this would increase the total cost of the loan, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) said. Santander Consumer is one of the nation's largest subprime auto lenders and manages about $52 billion in loans to 2.7 million customers, the lender has said.

Shares of Banco Santander Brasil SA were down 6 percent in Wednesday afternoon trading after analysts said the bank's quarterly results showed some signs of weakness in the third-quarter in spite of a higher-than-expected profit. Fee income and net interest margin - the difference between what a bank pays to borrow money and what it charges customers for loans - dropped in the quarter, raising questions if this performance would be a trend for the coming quarters. Chief Financial Officer Angel Santodomingo added fuel to the fire, saying on Wednesday that competition would pressure the bank's net income margin over coming quarters.

Banco Santander Brasil SA beat analysts' third-quarter estimates for profit on Wednesday as the bank reported another quarter of strong loan book growth. Recurring net income at the Brazilian unit of Spain's Banco Santander SA (SAN .MC) came in at 3.108 billion reais ($841 million) in the third quarter, 2.85 percent above the Refinitiv average estimate from analysts and 20.2 percent above the same period a year earlier. The bank's loan book reached 380.7 billion reais, driven by individuals and small companies.
A strong performance in its Spanish domestic market and a solid underlying business in Brazil drove Banco Santander (SAN.MC) third-quarter net profit up 36 percent from a year earlier while the lender also managed to improve its solvency position. Shares in Santander, the euro zone's biggest bank by market value, rose 4 percent on Wednesday, against a 1.5 percent rise on the European STOXX banking index (.SX7P). Analysts welcomed the bank's results at home in Spain and solid underlying performing in Brazil, as well as a recovery in Britain and its capacity to improve its capital ratios.
The euro zone's largest bank by market value posted attributable net profit of 1.99 billion euros ($2.256 billion) for the three-month period ending Sept. 30. Analysts at data firm Refinitiv had been expecting third-quarter net profit to come in at around 1.98 billion euros. Like Spanish rival BBVA, Santander makes most of its profit overseas, a model that has helped the bank counter a double-dip recession at home in recent years.
Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Monday told the chair of Banco Santander, Spain's biggest bank, that his government will create a safe environment for banks, aimed at encouraging foreign investment.

Santander, whose local unit is listed on Mexico's stock exchange, committed to invest 15 billion pesos ($773 million) in Mexico between 2017 and 2019, making it among the group's largest investments worldwide.
European politicians have called for action to tackle dividend stripping after Reuters and other media revealed how large banks were involved in trading schemes that cost taxpayers billions of euros. In Germany's biggest post-war fraud investigation, prosecutors in Cologne are investigating banks involved in the trades, which secured illicit double tax rebates on dividend payouts. Reuters spoke to bankers, officials and people directly involved in the probe and reviewed thousands of pages of internal bank files, correspondence and legal papers obtained as part of a European media investigation called the "cum-ex files" coordinated by non-profit newsroom Correctiv.
Seven banks, including HSBC (HSBA.L) and Banco Santander (SAN.MC), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create a global digital network in trade finance aiming at allowing cheaper and easier funding for corporates, a Santander manager said on Wednesday. The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group ANZ (ANZ.AX), BNP Paribas (BNPP.PA), Citibank (C.N), Standard Chartered and Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) also agreed to join the digital trade information network expected to be operational by the third quarter of next year. "It is the first time that these banks come together to set a standard (...) that will allow cheaper access to finance because the risks are going to be reduced," Rogier Schulpen, global head of trade and working solutions at Banco Santander, said in a phone interview.
Spain's Santander is the latest bank to be caught up in Germany's biggest post-war fraud investigation involving a share-trading scheme that the authorities say cost taxpayers billions of euros. In June, prosecutors in Cologne opened a tax investigation into Santander, confidential documents relating to a state prosecutors' investigation seen by Reuters and other European news organisations reveal for the first time. Santander's role in the scheme was to carry out trades, the prosecutors say, as one of many parties involved.
