Lloyds Loses Court Case over £3.3 Billion in Bonds

Lloyds has lost a court ruling, preventing it from redeeming as much as £3.3 billion (EUR 4.5 billion) of contingent capital bonds. Lloyds, which had to be rescued by taxpayers in 2009, argued that the terms of the bonds allowed for the so-called enhanced capital notes to be redeemed at face value since they no longer qualified as regulatory capital. The lender's plan to repay the securities before maturity was opposed by Bank of New York Mellon on behalf of investors, who will continue to receive interest payments averaging about 10% a year. Lloyds was given permission to appeal. While the notes were disallowed as capital in last year's round of stress testing, they may be counted in future tests, Lloyds said in a statement. That meant the disqualification hadn't occurred.

Lloyds has a made two new senior appointment in its commercial real estate lending team. Klaus Betz-Vais has been appointed as director in the institutional clients team and Brian Darling has been appointed to head up the commercial real estate division's network of regionally-based relationship teams. Betz-Vais has joined from Helaba where he was a director in the origination team and during his career in real estate finance he has previously worked for Saint Paul's Asset Management, Wachovia, Eurohypo and Hypo Real Estate. In the newly created position at Lloyds, he will support Lloyds Bank's work with major institutions such as financial sponsors, sovereign wealth funds and other money managers that are active in real estate. The other new joiner, Brian Darling, will oversee the bank's funding activity for property transactions with a value from £10 million and above from its offices in Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham. His team will provide a regional presence for each of the divisions though it is expected to be most active within the private real estate corporates unit, which looks after a range of UK real estate businesses and entrepreneurs and is led by Marty Green. Prior to joining Lloyds Bank, Darling was head of property finance at Nationwide and his career in banking began more than 30 years ago at Barclays.
