This paper investigates how conventional and unconventional monetary policies announcements a ect European banking indexes returns through an event-study analysis. We use data of 11 European banking indexes for the periods 1999-2015. We examine the state dependency of such e ects and focus on the surprise elements of policy changes derived from the Euribor futures market. Overall, we nd a positive relation between the unexpected changes in the ECBs reference rate and European banking indexes returns. We also discover that the e ect is stronger during the nancial crisis, especially during the sovereign debt crisis. Moreover, we identify a positive relation between the announcements of unconventional policies and the European banking indexes returns , particularly where the banking system was more risky such as Spain, France and Italy but with a low degree of magnitude than expected. Hence, the Euro banks reactions to monetary policies announcements seem to be more relevant through conventional measures with respect to non-conventional ones.
