    Santander Brasil cuts costs, credit card risk amid coronavirus

    Banco Santander Brasil SA's <SANB11.SA> chief executive, Sergio Rial, on Tuesday said the bank is implementing a series of measures aimed at helping it weather the coronavirus crisis, such as reducing credit card risk and cutting technology spending. Rial said in an interview with Reuters that he cannot yet foresee the pandemic's full impact on the bank's results, although loan delinquencies and losses are likely to go up after a forecast-beating first quarter that sent its shares soaring. Currently, 3% of Santander's outstanding loans are more than 90 days past due.

    Santander launches PagoFX in the UK, a money transfer app to take on TransferWise and other fintechs

    Reportedly written by the bank's head of innovation, the missive warned that a large chunk of the Spanish incumbent's profits were at risk -- specifically, those generated via international money transfers – because of the growing success of fintech challengers, such as London-headquartered TransferWise. Fast-forward three years, and today Santander is launching a standalone money transfer app, presumably in a bid to avoid the trappings of innovator's dilemma. The new proposition is open to Santander and non-Santander customers and has been developed by a team working largely outside of the bank -- a startup within a multi-national corporation, if you will -- and has grown to around 50 team members working across Madrid, London, and Brussels.

    Santander launches money transfer app in UK to fend off competition from fintechs

    Santander on Thursday launched a money service app in the United Kingdom that will initially be free of fees for transfers of up to 3,000 pounds ($3,740) due to the coronavirus pandemic as lenders try to fend off competition from start-ups in the payments industry. Santander said its completely owned PagoFX, a low-cost international money transfer service, would be available via a mobile app and allow UK residents with a debit card issued by any UK bank or financial entity to send money abroad from their smartphone with low costs and using real-time foreign exchange rates. Banks, which are already struggling to lift earnings due to low interest rates, face rising competition from tech start-ups like technology platform PayPal and the likes of London-based TransferWise that offer foreign exchange payments to retail and small-business customers with lower fees.

    Santander boosts lending capacity to 90 billion euros after cancelling dividends

    Santander <SAN.MC> has boosted its lending capacity to 90 billion euros ($97.3 billion) to support households in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak after cancelling its final 2019 dividend and its remuneration policy for 2020, chairman Ana Botin told investors on Friday. The European Central Bank had already told lenders to skip dividend payments and share buy backs until October at the earliest and use profits to support an economy hamstrung by restrictions on movement implemented to stop the spread of the virus. The lender said on Thursday it would cancel the final 0.13 euros per share dividend against its 2019 earnings to boost capital defences, with Botin saying on Friday this would save the euro zone's biggest lender in terms of market value 1.6 billion euros ($1.7 billion).

    European hedge funds struggle as short-selling bans disrupt strategies

    European hedge funds struggled to navigate the coronavirus-induced extreme market volatility during March, with many down by double-digits in the space of a few weeks as short-selling bans hampered their strategies. Regulators in France, Italy, Belgium and Spain ordered temporary short-selling bans to stop investors betting on a fall in the share price of companies ranging from Spanish bank Santander to Air France-KLM and Italian automaker Fiat Chrysler. Short-selling is a strategy often used by so-called 'event-driven' or 'merger-arbitrage' hedge funds that bet on takeover or merger deals, reducing their risk by shorting, or selling, the acquirer and buying the target company.

    Santander Brasil says won't fire workers during coronavirus 'critical period'

    Banco Santander Brasil SA <SANB11.SA>, one of Brazil's top lenders, said on Monday that it would refrain from firing workers "amid the most critical period" of the coronavirus outbreak.

Twenty-eight people have died in Spain from the coronavirus, with the number of cases jumping on Monday to 1,204, one of Europe's highest, but far less than in Italy. Santander <SAN.MC>, Spain's largest bank, said that as a precautionary measure it had asked employees in its corporate centres in Madrid to work from home for the next 15 days, while a BBVA <BBVA.MC> spokesman said it had closed a building in the capital as a result of a confirmed case of coronavirus.
