ECB's Praet says banks shouldn't pin hopes on higher rates

Reuters  |  FRANKFURT 

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Euro zone should not wait for an eventual increase in the European Central Bank's interest to boost their profits, but rather tackle their own issues, such as becoming more efficient, the ECB's chief economist said on Thursday.

"It would be misguided for to wait for changes in monetary policy to come to the rescue," Peter Praet said at an event in Brussels.

"Even in a normalisation scenario, the pre-crisis banking world is unlikely to return. face new structural and technological challenges that they have to confront, in particular in terms of raising operational efficiency."
