Eurozone Bank Loss Estimates
In this piece, we revisit the issue of bank losses we expect in the eurozone.

We then add expected losses incurred abroad from foreign-registered eurozone banks.
The different calculations show that the amount of stress in the eurozone and the U.S. banking system is comparable, although stemming from different sources. Whereas the U.S. banking system is mostly exposed to the domestic economy, a significant share of eurozone losses stems from abroad.
