LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

While U.S. banks have recovered from the financial crisis of 2009 and are
fundamentally stronger, banks in Europe such as Banco Bilbao Vizcaya
Argentaria SA (NYSE: BBVA) and Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) are still operating
in a challenging environment. The European Central Bank's (ECB) LTRO program
last year had helped in stabilizing Eurozone's banking system; however, recent
developments in Cyprus have raised concerns over possible bank runs in
peripheral Eurozone economies. Meanwhile, banks in the developed world as well
as those operating in the emerging markets such as Banco Santander (Brasil) SA
(NYSE: BSBR), Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico SAB de CV (NYSE: BSMX) have
been under pressure to strengthen their capital ratios. Foreign bank stocks
ended on a mixed note on Thursday even as the broad market struggled.
