    Banks could drive European deal flow

    Stress tests to be carried out by the European Central Bank in 2014 could well be a catalyst for further bank sales on the Continent.

    Stress tests by the European Central Bank (ECB) in 2014 could lead to even greater deal flow in Europe, according to Lee Millstein, senior managing director of Cerberus Capital Management.

    He noted that the ECB was on record as saying it would use stricter rules when stress testing banks’ balance sheets during its asset quality review in 2014, as it seeks to ensure banks have a capital ratio of 8 percent.

    “I think the big potential catalyst coming forward is the asset quality review and stress tests being conducted by the ECB,” said Millstein, who heads European and Asian distressed and real estate investments on behalf of Cerberus. “Banks are trying to get ahead of these tests, looking to sell assets that are deemed problem assets.”
