From the Financial Times: BofA seeks to repay $45bn by end of year

Bank of America wants to pay back $45bn in bail-out funds by the end of the year, in a faster-than-expected move made possible by an accelerated programme to raise capital.

BofA is on track to raise more than $35bn in capital by the end of September…

People familiar with the bank’s plans say negotiations to sell some of BofA’s non-core assets are under way and, if the asset sales occur in the next few months, the bank will be able to fulfil its stress-test obligations and pay back Tarp funds from its $173bn cash reserves.
