It’s time to get your razors out and start cultivating your new mo from tomorrow. Many of you have already signed up to take part in the City A.M. Finance Challenge, via the Movember website. There are 89 teams so far, from Barclays to Deutsche Bank to Mociete Generale (nice work), battling it out to raise the most and beat last year’s winner, Jupiter Asset Management. In case you need encouragement, there’s even a City boozer called The Movember Arms (née The Old Doctor Butler’s Head) in Moorgate – which opens its doors today. It is to become a hub for Mo Bros and Mo Sistas – one of 60 hubs in London where you can go and compare your face hair. If you’re unsure what kind of facial accessory to grow over the next month, Wuaki.tv has discovered that Tom Selleck is the proud owner of Britain’s favourite moustache.

He is an economist at OMFIF. center_img whatsapp THE EURO fell to a two-year low and stocks were buoyed yesterday after European Central Bank (ECB) chief Mario Draghi signalled that quantitative easing could soon become a reality.“The Governing Council has tasked ECB staff and the relevant committees with ensuring the timely preparation of further measures to be implemented,” Draghi said during his press conference.Draghi was speaking after the governing council – the group that decides on ECB action – kept interest rates at record lows.The euro dipped to just below $1.24, its lowest value for two years, having been as high as $1.252 just minutes earlier. The German Dax and French Cac stock indices made day gains of 0.66 and 0.46 per cent respectively.Draghi struck further dovish tones (doves support looser policy) when he maintained that the ECB’s balance sheet size should reach that which was seen at the beginning of 2012. The target implies that Draghi is planning approximately €1 trillion of asset purchases.Two weeks ago, the ECB began purchasing covered bonds – bonds backed typically by pools of mortgages – in order to inject liquidity into the banking system.Soon the ECB will begin purchasing asset-backed securities – groups of mortgages packaged together. Full QE is considered to be the purchase of only government bonds.Draghi also attempted to quell fears of dissent among ECB policy makers. “The governing council is unanimous in its commitment to using additional unconventional instruments within its mandate,” he said.

The remaining 20 per cent of equity will be retained by selling shareholders. “The acquisition of Veredus provides the ideal platform for us to import our complementary recruiting expertise and relationships from across the group, driving diversified growth and better serving our many clients for whom the US is a key market,” said Hays chief executive Alistair Cox.Stockbroker Shore Capital has given Hays a “buy” rating noting that “the deal makes a huge amount of sense for Hays”, which is cur­rent­ly “under-represented in the US”.

Eurosceptic group Business for Britain has published the findings of Europe Economics, which claims that recent regulation has been less beneficial to the UK and that much of it would not have been passed if Britain was in control. The report found that of the 20 new measures introduced, 10 would not have been made law if the UK had full control, including the bonus cap. Matthew Elliott, the chief exec­utive of Business for Britain said: “Badly designed EU rules, often driven by political opportunism rather than regulatory sense, are hurting Britain’s position as capital of the financial world.”However, a source in the banking community told City A.M. that the financial services industry would not have opposed any of the new regulation. Lucy Thomas of Business for New Europe added: “The British financial sector is overwhelmingly in favour of Britain’s EU member­ship. Given that 85 per cent of Euro­pean hedge fund assets are managed from the UK, it can’t be all that bad.” Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org center_img Show Comments ▼ Express KCS whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_imgTuesday 3 February 2015 9:05 pm THE NEW York-based private equity group CD&R last night launched a deal to sell up to 120m shares in B&M, the retail discount chain to raise around £370m.Sources suggested yesterday was the first time the group could dispose of shares since last year’s flotation. Shares in the group, which is run by the Arora brothers, were issued in the float at 270p and were last night trading at 323.5p ahead of the sale at the close of trading. Three of the Arora brothers own a combined 27 per cent of the equity.Bankers said that the deal was initially launched for 100m shares, but was increased to 120m due to sufficient demand.The sale was handled by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank. Goldman Sachs, which was a global co-ordinator on the original flotation, wasn’t involved in yesterday’s share sale. Lazard acted as a financial adviser to CD&R.After the sale the private equity group will own less than 20 per cent of the equity in B&M, which was founded in Blackpool in 1978.Bankers said the sale was covered at a zero discount to the closing price.

Spending on contactless cards triples in just one year

first_img Share whatsapp Spending on contactless cards triples in just one year Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Peoples’ penchant for contactless cards pushed total spending on them to a record £2.32bn last year according to data from The UK Cards Association. This was three times more than last year’s figure.Shoppers can make contactless payments of up to £20 by touching their cards against a reader. It means small purchases can be made more quickly by not inserting a debit or credit card or typing in the pin. Increased popularity among customers, the fact people are automatically given contactless cards by banks as well as shops embracing the relatively new technology are behind the boom.”With usage soaring every month last year, we’ve seen people flocking to contactless payments as they switch away from cash,” said Richard Koch, head of policy at The UK Cards Association.”For retailers, contactless means quicker ques at the tills and greater convenience for their customers.”Transport for London, which launched contactless payments for its transport systems in September, said 41 million journeys have since been paid for using the technology.”Using contactless payments to travel can save our customers time, they don’t need to stop to top-up an Oyster card, or buy a ticket and can benefit from daily and Monday to Sunday capping,” said Shashi Verma, TfL’s Director of Customer Experience.

Greek debt talks collapse: European equities hit by Grexit fears

first_img whatsapp Emma Haslett Greek debt talks collapse: European equities hit by Grexit fears Tuesday 17 February 2015 4:06 am European markets were knocked by fears of a Grexit this morning, after the collapse of emergency negotiations last night.The FTSE 100 dropped 0.13 per cent, while Germany’s Dax fell 0.7 per cent and France’s Cac dropped 0.9 per cent. Meanwhile, equities in Athens fell four per cent, led by banking shares, which dropped more than eight per cent. Greek 10-year bond yields jumped 1.5 percentage points to 9.46 per cent.The falls came after talks between European finance ministers descended into acrimony last night, after Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis took objection to a draft statement, which required Greece to stick to its “current [bailout] programme”. Following the meeting, Varoufakis said he had been ready to agree to an extension of the existing programme, but added that the conditions imposed by the statement were too strong.In a bizarre series of events, the maverick Greek finance minister said he had been presented with a draft statement by European Commissioner Pierre Moscovici which he was broadly happy with. Yet, Varoufakis claimed, this draft was suddenly replaced by a new version which implied Greece would have to stick to measures it vehemently opposes. “[The original draft] was replaced with another document, that took us not just back to last Thursday, but indeed it took us back to last Wednesday – when we were pressurised to extend the current programme,” Varoufakis said.  “It proved impossible for the Greek government, despite our infinite goodwill, to sign the offered communique.”  The new draft was subsequently leaked by angry Greek officials, showing Varoufakis’ markup of document, complete with angry underlinings.   center_img Share whatsapp Tags: Greek debt crisis Show Comments ▼last_img read more

The bank has secured initial stage funding and is in the process of applying for a banking license and will use a cloud technology which is to be used in the UK for the first time.The banking software which has already been employed by the likes of BNP Paribas and Alpha Bank outside the UK, will allow CivilisedBank to operate without branches.The bank will initially offer business current accounts, transaction banking, overdrafts, currency exchange, investments, savings and loans to SMEs with plans to expand into retail banking, specifically savings and investments, at a later date.CivilisedBank chairman Chris Jolly, a former senior executive at Merrill Lynch, Commerzebank and Societe General, said the bank will be at the forefront of twenty-first-century banks “which are fair, transparent and responsible”.“After years of turmoil, we believe that the UK deserves a more Civilised approach to banking,” he said. Jolly is joined by chief executive Gordon Dow, a former Santander, RBS and NatWest executive.CivilisedBank joins a host of fellow challenger banks such as Aldermore, OakNorth andMetro Bank and Shawbrook looking to take on Britain’s big banks since efforts by politicians and regulators to increase competition in the sector.Barclays, Lloyds, HSBC and RBS currently control around 80 per cent of the market when it comes to personal current accounts and small business banking.Metro Bank was the first new bank to launch in more than a century after gaining a full banking license in 2010. Since then another six banks have been christened with more, such as CilvilisedBank, due to follow. last_img read more
