All data er ikke samlet inn ennå, så vi vet ikke den nøyaktige fordelingen av de 530 milliarder euroene ennå. Det er nok ingen overraskelse at de som forsynte seg mest forrige gang, er i toppen denne gangen også. Det var Italia og Spania. Ingen kilder i den spanske sentralbanken har lettet på sløret, men The Wall Street Journal har spurt:
Spain’s Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA (BBVA) and CaixaBank SA (CABK.MC) participated in the European Central Bank’s long-term refinancing operations, or LTRO, spokesmen for the two lenders said Wednesday.
BBVA, Spain’s second-largest bank by market value, took a «similar amount» to the EUR11 billion it had borrowed in the first 3-year LTRO tender, a spokesman said.
A spokesman for CaixaBank, the no. 3 lender by market value, said the bank didn’t plan to disclose the amount taken, but confirmed that the lender had participated. The Barcelona-based bank had taken more than EUR12 billion in the first tender.
Officials at Banco Santander SA (STD) and Bankia SA (BKIA.MC), the other two big Spanish banks, declined to comment.
Ikke mange minuttene etter at størrelsen på Long Term Refinancing Operations 2.0 ble kjent gikk ryktet om at sentralbanken intervenerte i andrehåndsmarkedet for å kjøpe korte portugisiske statsobligasjoner. På ett tidspunkt steg 10-åringen med over 6%, mens 2-åringen sank. Ved forrige LTRO auksjon endte ca. 9% i Portugal. Vi har ennå ikke tall på denne runden, men Wall Street Journal rapporterer at:
A European Union official called the ECB’s move «a game changer» for Portugal’s private sector.
A person familiar with the situation said Banco BPI SA (BPI.LB) borrowed Wednesday from the ECB, which dished out EUR529.5 billion in cheap, three-year loans to 800 lenders. That amount was roughly consistent with what bankers, investors and analysts had expected.
Banco Espirito Santo SA (BES.LB), Portugal’s largest bank by market capitalization, and Banco Comercial Portugues SA (BCP.LB) had also indicated they would participate in Wednesday’s offering after each borrowed EUR5 billion under the previous facility given in December. The amount borrowed Wednesday wasn’t known.
