European markets drifted upwards Monday as fears of an imminent U.S. interest rate rise receded following last week’s poorer than expected employment statistics. But Germany still eyed the situation in Ukraine warily and Frankfurt fell in morning trading. Portugal’s central bank announced it will take control of ailing Banco Espirito Santo.

British bank HSBC said employees are becoming disproportionately risk averse, fearing criticism from regulators. But it said it would benefit if interest rates go up either in the U.K. or the U.S.
