Global FX trade surges to $4 trillion per day

first_img Share whatsapp TRADE on global currency markets has jumped by a fifth over the past three years to $4 trillion a day, roughly equal to the annual economic output of Germany, according to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). The increase in volumes was driven by a 48 per cent jump in turnover of conventional spot transactions, BIS said in the triennial survey, which is watched closely by banks and institutions as a comprehensive snapshot of currency market trading.Growth in the spot market partly reflects the continued rise of algorithmic trading, where so-called black boxes can process thousands of trades a minute.The survey also showed London has further cemented its prominence as the centre for forex markets, accounting for 36.7 per cent of global turnover, up from 34.6 per cent in 2007. In 2007-2010 London’s share of average daily turnover rose roughly by a quarter to $1.9 trillion. That was more than double the turnover in the US, the second-largest centre.The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market also saw strong growth, with daily turnover 24 per cent to $2.1 trillion.

They will start to take effect in January 2013 but changes to the definition of top-quality capital and the requirement for a capital-conservation buffer will not be fully implemented until 2018.Wellink, who is also head of the Dutch central bank, said regulators were continuing to discuss how to deal with large banks seen as “too big to fail”. But he added that measures being considered by the Basel Committee and Financial Stability Board included “combinations of a capital surcharge, bail-in debt and contingent capital”.Wellink rebuffed criticism that the new rules would hit economic growth, saying that they made the whole banking system more resilient to a financial downturn. “If, prior to the crisis, banks had the levels of capital we are asking for, we likely would not have experienced such a deep crisis,” he said. whatsapp whatsappcenter_img KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Speed needed for banks to meet Basel III Tags: NULLlast_img read more

IoD: regulation impeding investment in UK training

first_img whatsapp Share KCS-content SKILLS shortages in the workforce are holding back 58 per cent of UK businesses, a survey revealed today.And high taxes, burdensome regulations and misguided government projects are deterring companies from investing in skills, the Institute of Directors (IoD) said.“Businesses want to invest in training, and they would invest even more if the government improved the business environment by removing excessive employment regulations,” said the IoD’s Miles Templeman.Programmes such as Time to Train actually make it harder for companies to offer training opportunities to their staff, the IoD said. Some 63 per cent of directors say the programme has imposed more red tape, while over one in ten will remove training discussions from appraisals due to problems created by the scheme.Yet almost a third (31 per cent) of employers are struggling to fill vacancies due to a lack of skills among applicants, the survey reported.And even worse is the “skills gap” – a lack of skills among current employees. Almost half (47 per cent) of directors said some of their staff lacked the necessary skills needed to do their jobs properly.

No InstallTaonga: The Island Farmthedelite.comNetflix Cancellations And Renewals: The Full List For 2021thedelite.com IT was Frederic Bastiat, the French nineteenth century economist, who famously described the state as “that great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else”. It is a shame that Bastiat’s work, cult reading in some circles, has yet to penetrate the public consciousness in Britain. Those who campaign obsessively against “cuts” should take note – what they are really arguing is for others – their contemporaries, as well as future generations saddled with the national debt – to pay for their pet projects.It is high time for a proper debate about the relationship between the individual and the state. In a classically liberal society, people’s incomes are seen as theirs, to be spent, invested or donated as they see fit, with taxation kept to the minimum necessary to provide certain services and help the poor (the size of these activities are, of course, subject to debate). The present, collectivist mood in the UK sees it differently: earnings are implicitly treated as public property, to be divided up according to what politicians see fit; tax cuts are even seen as a “cost” to the Exchequer, as if it were automatically entitled to everybody’s wealth. There is a fundamental philosophical distinction between these two positions. This is not merely an abstract debate: shifting views on what we mean by “justice” have economic consequences. The UK’s relative prosperity – during its industrial heyday and then again during the 1980s and 1990s – was based on policies that assumed that individuals had a natural right to their earnings and property. By contrast, the post-war period, when envy and confiscatory taxation were rationalised on moral grounds, culminating with a 98 per cent tax rate in the 1970s, was a disaster. The situation is obviously no way as bad today as it was in those days. But Britain is now a very high tax society by international standards. So it was great to see Boris Johnson call for the 50p tax to be scrapped yesterday. The real top rate of tax is even higher when national insurance is included; earnings are taxed again when consumed (VAT, petrol tax); and anything left is taxed again at death. Crippling rates of double and triple taxation are the order of the day.Such a state of affairs would have outraged Bastiat. To him, high rates of taxation were unacceptable, morally as well as in terms of the damage inflicted on the incentive to work, save and invest. “No legal plunder: This is the principle of justice, peace, order, stability, harmony, and logic,” he argued in his inimitable style.There are plenty of voices around today fighting for free speech, civil liberties and “social” freedoms. It is a shame there is no equal enthusiasm when it comes to defending individuals’ economic freedom. GLOBAL GROWTH CHEERMore good news on the economic front: the US ADP private employment survey was remarkably strong yesterday, while the US services index rose for the fourth month in a row. It is hard to tell how sustainable the American rebound will turn out to be but it is nevertheless a welcome development. The next challenge is tackling the budget deficit: the Republicans have now formally seized control of the House and have pledged to tackle out-of-control spending and prevent the US from going the way of Greece.

Candy brother buys One Hyde Park flat

first_img whatsapp KCS-content THE DEVELOPERS of One Hyde Park have tried to lead by example by snapping up two of the luxury flats in the complex in Knightsbridge, it emerged yesterday.Christian Candy, one half of property firm Candy & Candy, has bought a single-storey penthouse for £31m, according to press reports based on Land Registry documents yesterday. This would be over £100m less than the asking price for the most expensive apartments in the complex.Sheik Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jaber al-Thani, the Qatari Prime Minister who helped fund the development through his Guernsey-based Project Grande company, bought a three-storey penthouse flat in August.But there has also been intense speculation as to the identity of the purchaser of the most expensive unit, a £140m penthouse apartment. The Capitalist in City A.M. was the first to highlight the mystery of the £140m penthouse owner last week and queried whether the developers may have purchased other apartments. Candy & Candy has not disclosed the identity of the buyer. The company maintained its refusal to name the buyer yesterday, citing a confidentiality agreement. Candy & Candy said last week that the penthouse was bought by an anonymous party who came through the One Hyde Park website.While the developers have announced that contracts have been exchanged on 60 per cent of the 86 flats available, it is thought that just two finalised sales have made it onto the Land Registry to date – both of them bought by the developers. A director at Savills, one of the agents tasked with marketing the flats, told The Capitalist last week the new owner of the most expensive penthouse is not one of the developers. Simon Cowell, Arcadia boss Philip Green and Formula One tycoon Bernie Ecclestone were among 350 guests invited to the sumptous launch party of the Knightsbridge development last week. The retail outlets on the ground floor of the complex have been let to carmaker McLaren, Rolex and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank. The One Hyde Park scheme was started in 2006 and cost close to £1bn to develop. A spokesperson for Candy & Candy said the identity and amount paid for each flat was private as part of a confidentiality agreement and declined to comment on the Land Registry public records.

TNK-BP moves to block $1.8bn share payout

first_img Tags: NULL RUSSIAN shareholders in TNK-BP have called an extraordinary board meeting to discuss cancelling a $1.8bn (£1.1bn) dividend payment, half of which would have gone to British partner BP.The latest twist in the feud between BP and the Russian shareholders in the joint venture comes after BP said it had offered its partners in TNK-BP an arbitration meeting, ahead of a court hearing that could overshadow its results tomorrow. AAR, a Russian consortium that owns half of TNK-BP, will hear tomorrow whether the High Court has granted it an injunction blocking BP’s $16bn (£10bn) share swap and exploration deal with Russia’s state-owned oil group Rosneft. AAR believes the agreement could breach TNK-BP’s right to first refusal on BP’s activities in Russia. But BP has written to TNK-BP chief executive and AAR member Mikhail Fridman to request a “fast track” arbitration meeting in Sweden to try and smooth the path for its Rosneft deal.“Under the shareholder agreements, the process for settling disputes if they can’t be settled within the shareholders is to go to independent arbitration in Sweden,” a BP spokesman said yesterday.

Swedish authorities to meet operators over regulatory issues

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Legal & compliance Disgruntled gaming companies will have the opportunity to air concerns and clarify regulatory issues next month after Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen invited licensees to a key meeting with various authorities.Representatives from the regulator, as well as the Swedish Tax Agency, Financial Police and the Swedish Consumer Agency will all be in attendance at the 17 September meeting.“The purpose of the meeting is to increase the understanding between the market players and the authorities,” the watchdog said.A number of issues are set to be discussed at the meeting, with the regulator having clamped down hard on any apparent breaches of licensee terms since the market opened up on January 1.In April, the regulator issued warnings to a number of operators that were found to have offered certain betting options on an Allsvenska football match featuring players under the age of 18.However, last month, Swedish operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) requested an urgent meeting with Spelinspektionen in the wake of a number of operators being fined by the watchdog.In a letter to Spelinspektionen, BOS secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt outlined a series of concerns about the future regulatory environment in the country due to operators unintentionally falling foul of the regulator’s interpretation of the Gambling Act.Hoffstedt’s letter centred around Spelinspektionen’s decision to hit eight licensees with fines ranging from SEK10m to SEK700,000 for apparently offering odds on sporting events featuring a majority of participants under the age of 18.However the request was never granted, and last week four more Swedish sportsbook operators were sanctioned for similar violations.The invitation to next month’s meeting has been extended to a total of 87 regulated companies in Sweden after Spelinspektionen confirmed today (28 August) that Apollo Entertainment Limited had become the latest business to secure a licence in the country a week ago.The Casinoaction.se has been listed as the only website that will be controlled currently in Sweden by Apollo, which is based in Malta and manages 29 active gambling websites in the UK.

Franco Digital, the digital division of R. Franco Group, has signed an ongoing strategic partnership deal with gaming technology and service provider, Betconstruct.The deal will see both suppliers integrate their products into mutual business areas across their global operations. The aim of the deal is to create synergies between both companies’ product portfolios.R. Franco Digital is set to gain access to BetConstruct’s global network of operator partners. BetConstruct, in turn, will have access to R. Franco Digital’s complete content catalogue, as well as its full range of products and servicesOf particular note is R. Franco Digital’s compliance-facing technology, which was developed alongside Spain’s gaming regulator, DGOJ, and Colombia’s Coljuegos.Commenting on the deal, commercial director at R. Franco Digital, Mario Benito, said: “Our goal as Spain’s most established gaming company is to seek first-rate strategic partners and allies in which we can share technology, products and knowledge, bespoke to each of their needs.“We’re delighted to be working alongside one of the industry’s leading technology suppliers and see it as testament to the quality of the games, products and services that our company offers. We look forward to a long and productive relationship together.”Aris Gabrielyan, head of regional business development at BetConstruct, added: “We are very happy to be partnering with R. Franco Digital, a benchmark for leadership in the Spanish market and a force to be reckoned with on the international stage.”The partnership represents the latest of many formed this year for each supplier, both of which have their sights set on international expansion.Earlier this month, BetConstruct’s B2C subsidiary Vivaro was granted an online gaming license in Sweden. The supplier has also been licensed in recent weeks to provide virtual sports and keno products by the Malta Gaming Authority, and last week struck a social and sports partnership with the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma.Meanwhile, R. Franco Digital struck a deal with Dafabet earlier this month, allowing the operator to use R.

In addition, food and alcohol may not be consumed in the venues.Gambling industry trade association Fecoljuegos claims the government has missed out on  COP225bn(£46m/$60.1m/€51.2m) in tax revenue as a result of the closures from March this year.

first_img By Kunal Dhyani – May 14, 2020 England players may start training in coming weeks but with option of “pulling out” Halle Open 2021 Final: Ugo Humbert defeats Andrey Rublev to become champion RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR England players could tentatively start their outdoor skill-based training in the coming weeks with the ECB eyeing resumption of international cricket with a series against West Indies in July, said its director of cricket Ashley Giles.However, as per health directive issued by government wing, the players — across all sports in UK — will have an option to “opt out” of training if they have any apprehensions of health risk.

It should be that controlled an environment.”However as per protocols issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), players will have an option.“All athletes and support staff should be engaged in a 1:1 check-in prior to resumption of organised step one training to ensure they have understood the sport specific risks and mitigations, training site protocols in place, are physically and mentally well enough to engage in return to training and have actively ‘opted in’ to engaging in step one return to training,” the document stated.“It will be for individual sports to agree with their athletes any conditions for their return. All athletes and staff should also be clear on their route to ‘opt out’ of the organised training environment under Step One conditions at any time without unreasonable steps being taken against them consequently.”Even the ECB Director agreed that they have to create an environment where West Indies and Pakistan both feel safe while travelling to the United Kingdom.“It can be quite scary but we are doing everything we possibly can to answer all of West Indies’ questions. We will be speaking to Pakistan as well and mitigate as much risk as we possibly can. We can’t mitigate all risk but as much as possible to get guys comfortable.”However Giles assured that a complete risk assessment would be done before taking the plunge.“We are also outside where we know the risks are far less. We will certainly carry out the right risk assessments at the venues. We will make sure all the staff are trained and that we have the right equipment, including PPE [personal protective equipment]. We will make sure everything is there for the guys to go about their business as safely as possible.“Would I be confident if I were a West Indies player? I would be nervous, certainly, but we are all nervous aren’t we? I’m not making light of this but there are risks every time you go outside the house. We need to mitigate as many of the risks as we possibly can.” Latest Sports News Sport News Viking Classic Birmingham 2021 Final: Ons Jabeur beats Daria Kasatkina to clinch title Previous articleCricket Business : Pakistan cricket team tour to Ireland postponedNext articleCricket : NZC announces central contracts, Kyle Jamieson rewarded for India show Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.
