Banco Popolare, Popolare Milano troubles put Italy banks in focus

MILAN, Jan 24 (Reuters) – Two Italian mid-sized lenders came
under the spotlight on Friday as Banco Popolare
announced it would need a capital increase and Banca Popolare di
Milano’s top investor sold his stake in the bank.

The announcements highlight the fragility of the country’s
second-tier banks, some of which are grappling with soaring bad
loans as an Italian economic crisis hits small and medium
enterprises.
