Italy banks need to boost capital this year-Moody's
MILAN Jan 16 (Reuters) - Italian banks will need to reinforce their capital positions in the next six to 12 months to keep their credit ratings, Moody's Vice-President Carlo Gori said on Friday.
"There is a need, not urgently, for a gradual strengthening of equity with capital management moves to keep their ratings," Gori, who is also senior analyst for Italian financial institutions at the credit ratings agency, said at a seminar.
He said "gradual" for Italian banks, who have a low risk profile, meant a timeline of six to 12 months.
