However, loan impairments dropped by 52 per cent to $760m.Profits before tax in commercial banking shot up 25.5 per cent to $2.4bn, while global banking and markets revenues rose 16.7 per cent.But earnings in retail banking and wealth management dived 15.9 per cent to $1.3bn.“We continued to build essential infrastructure to deliver against our risk and compliance commitments and fulfil our regulatory obligations in the third quarter,” said chief executive Stuart Gulliver. Around 10 per cent of HSBC’s staff now work in risk and compliance, after a series of scandals forced the bank to tighten up in areas like anti-money laundering controls.“Cost inflation in a number of our markets and a number of significant items also contributed additional costs,” said Gulliver.Analysts said this does not bode well for future profit figures from the bank.“While HSBC appears to have returned to revenue and loan growth, management believes that the regulatory and conduct costs of running a global bank have significantly increased,” said analyst Shailesh Raikundlia from Espirito Santo.“This means that management’s 2016 return on equity target of 12 per cent may be even more of a stretch, as the minimum capital requirements are likely to rise from the current core equity tier one ratio of 10.5 per cent used to calculate the targets.”HSBC’s shares fell 1.81 per cent.

The software giant made no formal announcement, instead creating an information page on its website which tells customers how to top up their accounts using the virtual currency.The news was later confirmed in a blog post on Microsoft’s website by Eric Locard, corporate vice president of Universal Store at the US firm:For us, this is about giving people options and helping them do more on their devices and in the cloud.The use of digital currencies such as Bitcoin, while not yet mainstream, is growing beyond the early enthusiasts.We expect this growth to continue and allowing people to use Bitcoin to purchase our products and services now allows us to be at the front edge of that trend.Bitcoin is a digital currency that uses a code to change data into an unreadable format, ensuring online payments made with it are anonymous.This has meant it’s struggled to gain mainstream approval, with many saying weak regulation makes it an ideal tool for online criminals.However, Microsoft follows other big businesses such as Paypal, Dell and Expedia who also accept the virtual currency. last_img read more

Britain’s great “wine recession” will come to an end this year

first_imgDrinkers rejoice! Britain’s great “wine recession” will finally come to an end in 2015.Britons’ wine guzzling habits will edge up 3.3 per cent in the four years to 2018, according to new research by Vinexpo, a wine exhibition and forum, and the International Wine and Spirits Record.  Since 2008, the nation’s thirst for wine has suffered something akin to a hangover, with total wine consumption falling by about 10.5 per cent every year.Despite the good news there’s still a long way to go before we return to pre-2008 levels, when an astonishing 1.61bn bottles of wine (135.8m cases) were sloshed.”We can confidently say that 2015 will show that the UK wine recession is over,” said Guillaume Deglise, chief executive of Vinexpo. “While the UK market shed 9.6m cases between 2008 and 2013, it is now past that point. The UK wine trade is building value and many leading marketers report progress at the premium end,” he said.So which wines will be the the most popular next year?

Balfour Beatty to make $40m from disposal

first_img Share Express KCS whatsapp Monday 16 February 2015 8:30 pm Show Comments ▼ SHARES in infrastructure group Balfour Beatty went up by 1.02 per cent yesterday after the group announced it is set to make $40m (£26m) from the disposal of an 80 per cent interest in the Thanet offshore transmission project (OFTO).The project, which connects the Thanet Wind Farm, off the coast of Kent, to the onshore transmission grid is being sold to funds managed by Equitix, which has interests in several infrastructure assets. According to the group, the proceeds of the sale are consistent with the most recent directors’ valuation. Leo Quinn, Balfour’s chief executive, said the disposal “clearly demonstrates the investment business’ ongoing ability to deliver significant value for the group”. He added: “The OFTO sector remains a key market, which is why we have retained 20 per cent ownership in Thanet.” center_img Balfour Beatty to make $40m from disposal by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHealthyTed Health Magazine10 Surprising Benefits of Bananas You Possibly Didn’t Know AboutHealthyTed Health MagazineAll Things Auto | Search AdsNew Cadillac’s Finally On SaleAll Things Auto | Search AdsNext RefinanceThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryNext Refinancezenherald.comArchie Issued New Birth Certificate After Harry’s Title Revokedzenherald.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Plain cigarette packaging: Tobacco companies Philip Morris, British American Tobacco, Imperial and Japan Tobacco vow legal fight against branding ban in courts

BAT, the maker of Lucky Strike, will begin a legal challenge against the UK government if the legislation gains final approval in the House of Lords.”This legislation is a case of the UK government taking property from a UK business without paying for it. That is illegal under both UK and European law,” said BAT’s director of corporate affairs Jerome Abelman.”Legal action is not something we want to undertake, nor is it something we enter into lightly, but the UK Government has left us with no other choice after running what can only be described as a flawed consultation process. Any business that has property taken away from it by the state would inevitably want to challenge and seek compensation.”The 100-year-old firm argues the move violates UK, EU and international laws and World Trade Organisation rules on international trade.Marlboro maker Philip Morris said the government was ignoring “serious legal issues” under these laws.“Today’s decision by the UK Government to arbitrarily ban the use of tobacco-related trademarks is an irrational and unnecessary attack on private property that vilifies products that well informed adults choose to buy,” said Philip Morris corporate affairs director James Barge. “While we respect a government’s authority to regulate in the public interest, we and the public expect them to do so based on evidence, taking account of fundamental values such as private property, equal treatment and consumer choice. Following this decision, we are prepared to protect our rights and to seek fair compensation for the value of our property,” said Barge.Japan Tobacco International (JTI), which makes Silk Cut and Camel brand cigarettes, accused the government of rushing through the policy and using the General Election as “the finishing line”.“This divisive legislation has been rushed through Parliament, with little regard for proper scrutiny and debate. Regulators have disregarded the results of public consultations, evidence reviews and impact assessments, not to mention the overlap with other legislation such as the ban on displaying tobacco in shops and the wide-ranging EU Tobacco Products Directive,” said JTI UK managing director Daniel Torras.”The Government is using the General Election as the finishing line and has hurried this policy along, stifling debate among MPs and giving little opportunity for opposing views to be aired,” he added.Imperial Tobacco director of corporate affairs Axel Gietz said: “We have a fundamental right to differentiate our brands from those of our competitors and, should plain packaging pass into law, we would regrettably be left with no choice but to defend our legal rights in court.“No-one starts or continues to smoke because of the colour of the pack. We know from the real-world experience in Australia that it won’t change consumption trends or reduce youth smoking but will play into the hands of criminals who profit from illicit trade,” he added.Health campaigners who have long battled for laws banning branding, have heralded the vote as a major victory.  “The government, and MPs from all parties, are to be congratulated for resisting the bully-boy tactics and misinformation of the tobacco industry and for implementing the most important public health reform of this Parliament,” said the chief executive of the charity Action on Smoking and Health (ASH).

Sanctions have been placed on Iran until it curbs its nuclear enrichment programme, but the  extent to which the nuclear activity should be limited is a point of contention. Earlier this month, US President Barack Obama proposed a ten-year freeze on nuclear enrichment in return for a lifting of sanctions, arguing that this was a better option than taking military action on the country.  But he has faced intense pressure from Congress not to agree to a deal that would allow Iran to continue building a weapon, while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has argued that a nuclear-armed Iran would pose an existential threat to the Jewish state.  Iran has consistently denied that it is trying to build an atomic bomb, saying instead that its enrichment is entirely for civilian purposes.   Iran nuclear programme: Saudi Prince warns that if Iran strikes a deal, his country will want the same whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL Sarah Spickernell Monday 16 March 2015 2:43 am Sharelast_img read more

Bloomberg down: Treasury pulls £3bn tender, bond deals delayed after terminals outage locks traders out of the City

first_img Bloomberg down: Treasury pulls £3bn tender, bond deals delayed after terminals outage locks traders out of the City Share whatsapp Tags: NULL The City was in meltdown this morning as the Bloomberg Professional outage continued with no sign of being fixed.Deals were expected to be delayed and even the Treasury has postponed planned bill tenders worth £3bn after the trading terminal went offline, effectively locking traders out of the markets. The problem, which is affecting terminals worldwide, began not long after markets opened in London. A statement issued by the Treasury’s Debt Management Office this morning said: Due to ongoing technical issues with the third party platform supplier, the DMO is announcing that this morning’s UK Treasury Bill tenders will be postponed, with a further update announcement to be made at 12.00 noon today, and that any bids already submitted will be deemed null and void.  One trader told City A.M bond deals that were due to be priced today were being delayed.  He added: “The City is on hold – no one is doing anything.” A spokeswoman for Bloomberg said engineers were “working as hard as they can to fix it as quickly as possible”.  But she was unable to say how long it would take or what the possible cause could be.  Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Catherine Neilan by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likematernityweek.comArchie Issued New Birth Certificate After Harry’s Title Revokedmaternityweek.comYahoo!

But they’re keeping a close eye on the leader of the free world – his first follower was the White House, followed by wife Michelle, then Vice-President Joe Biden. Obama made fun of his own leisurely paced uptake of the clipped communication method, tweeting: “Hello, Twitter! It’s Barack. Really! Six years in, they’re finally giving me my own account.” He followed it up with a photo post of a meeting with a youth-focused police group. Late last night, the President had just over 1.03m followers, but so far had only returned the love by following 65 people and organisations. Away from the politics, Obama made sure to follow all the sporting teams from his home town of Chicago, Illinois.
