The European Central Bank (ECB) is planning to ease bank dividend restrictions and allow lenders to payout 15% of 2019-2020 cumulative profits, Reuters reported on Monday, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The ECB will reportedly decide on dividend on a case-by-case basis and lenders will have to prove their case to gain approval.
