Is there a list of EU banks that got state aid / bailed out since 2008 crisis? I know EU state aid commission approves the fundings to banks, but does anyone keep track of which banks are tapping into these aids?

  • $\begingroup$ I heard that banks occasionally received emergency bailouts in the UK on multiple occasions over many decades before the crisis, but this would happen without any publicity. I posted a freeedon-of-information-request to the UK government asking for a list of these occasions but they made feeble excuses to avoid answering my question. $\endgroup$ – Mick May 16 '17 at 12:01

Pro Publica keeps an ongoing list of bailout recipients in the United States.

Here is a report on the UK bailouts during the crisis: The Comptroller and Auditor General’s Report on Accounts to the House of Commons: The financial stability interventions

The SoFFin Wikipedia page has a list of participating German institutions.

FACTBOX - Bank bailouts around the world covers a few additional countries's bailouts between September 2008 and February 2009. A further update came in April of 2009 but it doesn't seem exhaustive.

Page 28 of Stability Programme of the Netherlands April 2011 Update contains information on their biggest bailouts but I am unsure if it is exhaustive.

The Spanish Fund for Orderly Bank Restructuring appears to be the key Spanish bailout program. The FROB FAQ lists entities receiving FROB support but again, this may not be exhaustive.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. Somewhere in ECB pages information should be stored for the Spanish, Italian and recent Greek Bank injections. Not sure why it is not easily available. Are they hiding it :) $\endgroup$ – adam Feb 19 '15 at 10:11
