Austria’s Fekter Says Raiffeisen Will Meet Rules Without Aid

October 27, 2011

Oct. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Austrian Finance Minister Maria Fekter said she expected Raiffeisen Bank International AG to present a plan for how to fulfil its capital requirements without tapping state aid, she said in a radio interview today.

“Raiffeisen will present a plan” Fekter said. While the government still has 6 billion euros in capital it could inject into banks, Fekter said she got signals from all Austrian banks “that they can fulfil the requirements on their own.”
