Santander tames its trading risk

Reduced trading risk at its Latin American unit helped send Santander’s groupwide value-at-risk sharply downwards by the close of 2018, compared with the past three years.  

The Spanish bank posted average groupwide trading VAR of €10.1 million ($11.6 million) at end-December, down from €16.9 million at end-2017, €20.4 million at end-2016, and €14.2 million at end-2015. 

Trading portfolios held in Brazil, Mexico and Chile were the key drivers of Santander’s groupwide market risk. Lower risks
