Schaeuble open to compromise on EU bank fund

BERLIN (Reuters) – German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has signaled a readiness to compromise on the contours of a European fund to shut down troubled banks following sharp criticism from the European Parliament.

In an interview with Reuters, Schaeuble stuck to his long-standing position that changes to the EU treaty were necessary if the bloc was to move beyond the inter-governmental approach to “banking union” agreed by European finance ministers in December.
