Other proposals include making it easier to market foreign investment funds and money market funds to British consumers, and for financial firms to move between different clearing houses. whatsapp The government is also proposing introducing “more proportionate” regulation of investment firms and giving the City watchdog greater powers to ensure the scrapping of the scandal-hit Libor interest rate benchmark, according to a new financial services bill introduced to parliament today. The Bank of England has indicated it does not want to see lower regulatory standards after Brexit, but governor Andrew Bailey has repeatedly said it would be wrong for Britain to continue to follow EU rules it has no control over.  ““The UK’s future success as a world-leading financial centre will best be underpinned by a strong and proportionate regulatory framework that protects consumers, enhances our competitiveness and makes the UK attractive for international investment,” Wigley said. The proposed financial services legislation would extend the transition period for the UK to stop using some third-country financial benchmarks from 2022 to 2025 to allow the country more time to find a replacement.

first_imgUncategorizedYou Say You Want A Revolution? J.J. Abrams’ New Show DebutsBy Elina Shatkin – September 18, 2012260ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItWHAT: Last night, NBC debuted Revolution, the endlessly hyped new show from Alias, Lost, and Fringe wunderkind J.J. Abrams. The concept: 15 10 years after all the lights go out, everyone’s hair still looks fantastic but some people are very angry.VERDICT: It’s a mixed bag. We understand the crossbows, but where are the characters getting these stylish, slim-fitting corduroys and leave-in hair conditioners? Putting aside the ridiculous beautification that routinely occurs in representations of the post-apocalypse, the premise — a world without power — is a fascinating one. Too bad the first episode of the drama was simultaneously dull and way too rushed. It feels like a show that should be on cable, where Abrams would have the breathing room to develop the characters and stretch out the plots. (Remember how slow the first few episodes of Breaking Bad were?) Like the major networks’ PG-13 odes to Mad Men (Pan Am, The Playboy Club), we suspect Revolution is headed for the dustbin of TV history. Still, we have some hope. Abrams is a smart guy with interesting ideas. If anyone can mine the dramatic potential of the darkpocalypse within the myopic parameters of network TV, it’s him. TAGS2012L.A.

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp It has been just six months since the launch of agent-owned, agent-controlled OnTheMarket.com. In this very short period in the history of property portals, we have already made significant in-roads in disrupting the current duopoly of Rightmove and Zoopla Property Group. Read more: OntheMarket will fizzle out before its first birthday Rightmove and Zoopla are both almost entirely dependent on estate and letting agent subscriptions to advertise the properties they have on their books. Over 5,000 agent offices have already signed up with OnTheMarket.com with the strategic objective of challenging the current duopoly and creating a superior alternative for consumers and agents alike.  From a standing start we have created a compelling challenger brand and business with hundreds of thousands of properties for sale and to rent at all price points across the UK.  Traffic levels are impressive: we are on schedule for 5m visits to the site this month alone. Our national advertising campaign continues to deliver very strong growth in traffic and our property stock is increasing.  We are at the start of a new long-term strategic venture, one that will take time, but with the excellent support received from our agent members we have reason to feel confident.    With the millions of visits that are now coming to the site, we are delivering quality leads to our members and already, in some parts of the country, OnTheMarket.com already displays more properties than Zoopla.   Web users are relishing the clean and responsive website that is not cluttered by adverts or widgets but is devoted to selling properties clearly and efficiently.  This point is backed up by the robust number of return visits to the site and excellent agent feedback. The digital platform is state-of-the-art: according to independent Alexa statistics, OnTheMarket.com loads considerably faster than either Rightmove or Zoopla.  Our members and our property-seekers know that the properties displayed at OnTheMarket.com are all on the market with high street estate and letting agents and not mixed in with those of online-only agents or private vendors. Property-seekers, as well as vendors and landlords, have confidence that the agents at OnTheMarket.com can provide a wealth of experience and local market knowledge, a full end-to-end service and the opportunity to deal face-to-face if they so choose.  With the launch of OnTheMarket.com, our members have created more choice for consumers and agents and are pursuing a longer term strategy to prevent dominance of the portals market by just two firms. Success attracts its detractors, not least from online-only agents such as Russell Quirk, who wrote recently in these pages that “OntheMarket will fizzle out before its first birthday”, and from challenged competitors such as Zoopla Property Group, which lost almost a quarter of its agents between the end of March 2014 and the end of March 2015 and whose chief executive has said that he believes we are “a short term event”. With such strong support from agents all over the UK, we are confident not only that we are here to stay but that we can ultimately achieve our objective to develop a credible alternative to the market leaders. whatsapp Friday 31 July 2015 11:25 am Detractors are wrong: OntheMarket is here to stay Emma Haslett More From Our Partners Matt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgWhite House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com Share Tags: Expert Voices UK house priceslast_img read more

first_imgBy Gavin van Marle 30/06/2016 French contract logistics specialist ID Logistics looks set to propel itself into the upper echelon of providers after agreeing to acquire Spanish operator Logiters for €85m.The acquisition still needs the green light from Spanish competition authorities, although ID Logistics says it expects to complete by the end of the summer.It will be a cash buy from private equity fund Corpfin Capital, leaving ID Logistics with a “leverage ratio of approximately 1.2x proforma EBITDA post acquisition”.Logiters recorded revenues of €250m last year. It operates 50 warehouses in Spain and Portugal, employs around 3,300 staff and has a client base focused on the automotive and healthcare sectors.Eric Hémar, ID Logistics chief executive, said: “Logiters’ acquisition is another key milestone in ID Logistics’ growth strategy.“We are rapidly expanding the scale and footprint of our European operations, by strengthening our leadership position in Spain and by entering the Portuguese market in a significant way.“Thanks to Logiters’ strong management team. which demonstrates high level of technical expertise and customer relations, ID Logistics has the opportunity to reach high visibility in business sectors such as healthcare/pharmaceuticals or automotive, while consolidating its leading market positions on the traditional FMCG and retail sectors.“In addition, Logiters will allow us to gain access to even more significant business opportunities and to extract greater benefits for our longstanding and new clients.“Thanks to our proven capability to acquire new businesses, I am confident that we will rapidly and easily welcome and integrate Logiters’ teams into our organisation and offer them exciting career and business opportunities.”According to the Transport Intelligence Global Contract Logistics 2016 report, Europe is already the most consolidated of regional contract logistics markets, with the top 10 providers accounting for 36.4% of the market, compared with 33.2% in North America and 22.9% in Asia-Pacific.While DHL is by far the largest operator in Europe, with annual revenues of €8.3bn, the ninth and tenth rankings are held by DB Schenker and UK firm Unipart, with annual turnover of €952m and €946m respectively.In 2015, ID Logistics posted revenues of €930m, growth of 6.4% over the year before, and saw net profit rise 18.3% to €21.3m. Assuming Logiters retains its customer base, the addition of its €250m turnover will make ID Logistics of comparable size to German company Fiege.Luis Marceñido, Logiters chief executive, said: “We are very excited to join ID Logistics. It’s a real opportunity to offer a pan-european solution to our customers.“We are happy to share same entrepreneurship value and a customer oriented approach. This agreement with ID Logistics opens up an exciting new chapter for Logiters’ teams.”Alvaro Olivares, partner at Corpfin Capital, added: “Over the past few years, we are proud to have successfully accompanied Logiters through a major recovery phase, working closely with its management teams to reach unique market leadership position in the Iberia peninsula.”According to the TI report, the Spanish contract logistics market was worth 2.69bn last year, and is set to grow to €3.11bn by 2019.It adds: “Industry consolidation was a key driver of change in 2015, with a low-growth economy and cheap debt incentivising takeovers to gain scale and new customer accounts.”last_img read more

The advertising campaign reaches out to younger Canadians who do not yet have a financial security advisor or have not yet developed a financial security plan, Cunneen says. The eight-week advertising campaign includes two online digital videos, Family and New home, each beginning with a piece of Canadian history which then transitions into today’s relevant moments. The message reinforces the need for younger Canadians to surround themselves with people who can help, including a financial advisor. The videos will direct young consumers to a brand new Freedom 55 Financial website covering timely financial security planning topics. When they feel they have enough information, they can use an advisor locator to start a conversation with a Freedom 55 Financial advisor near them. The campaign follows a brand refresh ad campaign in 2012 that asked Canadians to reflect on what freedom meant to them. Which campaign promises will make it into the federal budget?
