UK banks graded for their resilience

The UK’s seven biggest banks which participated in the Bank of England (B0E)’s stress tests not only passed them, but were graded for their resilience to a range of adverse shocks, including a strong slowdown in growth in China and sharp falls in oil and raw material prices. Santander’s performance in the tests stood out, demonstrating that it is one of the lenders which is in best shape.
