New lending leaves banks in the shade Tim Wallace whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Shadow banking grew by $5 trillion (£3.1 trillion) last year to total $75 trillion of assets worldwide, as the alternative finance sector took over from banks as the main source of lending growth. By contrast the banking sector’s assets stayed flat, as the industry continued to deal with a legacy of bad loans and waves of regulations. The figures, from global watchdog the Financial Stability Board (FSB), could even be higher as many hedge funds are based offshore where officials have little access to data. The FSB welcomed the boost to lending from shadow banks, which include institutions like broker-dealers, money market funds and real estate investment trusts.  Its support came despite the International Monetary Fund’s attack on the sector this month as a possible source of risks to the financial system. “Shadow banking can be a boon for the financial system. In emerging market economies [it] broadens access to credit, because traditional banking networks often face capacity or regulatory constraints, such as restrictions on lending or deposit rates,” the FSB said. “In advanced markets, various types of funds have been stepping in to provide long-term credit to the private sector as banks have been lending less.” A key problem for the sector is one of naming, as the word “shadow” makes the industry seem shady. “The use of the term ‘shadow banking’ is not intended to cast a pejorative tone on this system of credit intermediation,” said the FSB’s report. The UK has the third largest shadow banking sector by assets, behind the US and Eurozone, which each have around $25 trillion. Britain’s shadow banks expanded by $300bn to total assets of $9.3 trillion. Shadow banking has grown both as some activities are pushed out of banks by regulators, and because investors’ search for returns in a low- rate environment have pushed them to invest in higher-risk areas. One area of growth is traders moving from banks into funds or boutiques – doing the same bond and derivatives trades, but in a shadow bank. This means traders are less regulated, but are also less dangerous to the wider financial system as they will not to bring down a bank if anything goes wrong. Similarly, trading activity adds valuable liquidity to markets, and needs to happen somewhere else if it cannot happen in banks. WHAT IS SHADOW BANKING?■ Bond and equity funds are the biggest shadow banks – they are intermediaries investing funds, but not banks.■ On some definitions, pension funds and insurers also count as they match investors with borrowers.■ They are typically less regulated than banks, but also less risky as they are not going to lose a retail bank’s money  whatsapp Thursday 30 October 2014 9:38 pm last_img read more

She covers politics and insurance and can be contacted at [email protected] Show Comments ▼ whatsapp LABOUR leader Ed Miliband will today prepare his shadow cabinet for years of departmental budget cuts as he promises to deal with the deficit while protecting public services. Miliband will use his speech to set out how a future Labour government would balance the books without cutting the state to 1930s levels – an accusation he aims squarely at chancellor George Osborne. He is set to say that the Conservatives have “finally been exposed by the Autumn Statement for what they really are: not modern compassionate Conservatives at all – but extreme and ideological, committed to a dramatic shrinking of the state and public services, no matter what the consequences.” Shadow chancellor Ed Balls will add that departmental spending will be cut until the deficit is eliminated.The speech sets out Labour’s clear aim, to keep Whitehall budgets low in order to protect public services, but opposition parties have raised questions over whether Miliband can eliminate the deficit, protect public spending and steer clear of swinging cuts at the same time. Last night, a Labour spokesman said the party will make “different choices”, adding that the Tories represent “a clear and present danger” to public services in the UK. Last night government business minister Matt Hancock said: “Labour’s policy is to run deficits forever – more borrowing that would add to the national debt every single year.” Share last_img read more

Keeping up with the Joneses: why living next to wealthier neighbours harms boys’ prospects in life

first_img Tags: NULL Mixed communities are heralded by many UK policymakers as a way to stem inequality and improve the prospects of children from low-income families. They consider aspiration to be a strong driving force away from antisocial behaviour and towards success, arguing it will help struggling families in the long run. But when it comes to young males, a new study of communities in the UK indicates quite the opposite – growing up surrounded by more affluent families is much more likely to push boys into antisocial behaviour and hinder their progress in later life. The research, carried out by Duke University, involved looking at the activities of 1,600 children in urban and suburban areas over a 12 year period. Antisocial behaviour was measured as anything from lying and cheating to swearing and aggressiveness – factors that can affect a child’s success at school and beyond.  Intensive home assessments were also carried out, and the characteristics of teachers and neighbours were looked into. Google Street View was used to gauge neighbourhood conditions within a half-mile radius of each child’s home, yielding data about housing conditions, parks, the presence of graffiti and more. The researchers found a definite correlation – the greater the income gap between rich and poor families, the more likely young males were to behave in an antisocial way. And it occurred in both directions – boys from richer families were more likely to be aggressive when surrounded by poor families. The explanation for this pattern, according to lead researcher Candice Odgers, is something called “relative position hypothesis”: children are known to evaluate their self-worth by comparing themselves with those around them, and that includes how much money they have. Therefore, being poor may be more distressing to a child when he is surrounded by others who are better off.  What this means, contrary to popular belief among policymakers, is that efforts to create economically mixed communities can do more harm than good to the male half of society.  “Our hope was that we would find economically mixed communities allowed low-income children access to greater resources and the opportunity to thrive,” said Odgers.”Instead, we found what appears to be the opposite effect.” “We are not saying that economically mixed communities are universally harmful. However, additional care may need to be taken to ensure these communities achieve their intended outcomes for children.”What about girls?The effects of income inequality among girls were also studied, but they appeared to be immune to surrounding affluence or lack thereof. This fits in with previous studies in the US, which also indicate neighbourhood surroundings play a smaller role in the social development of girls than of boys.  The researchers believe this may be because parents often monitor their daughters more than their sons, keeping them closer to home.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldGive It LoveRemember These Rare Sisters?

Accounts filed recently on Companies House reveal that Wittington Investments, one of the main investment vehicles of the Weston Family, paid out £63m in the year to 13 September compared with £53m the previous year.This was followed by a £42m dividend after the year-end. The main beneficiary was the Garfield Weston Foundation, which supports charities including the Salvation Army and the Demelza Children’s Hospice. It controls a 79 per cent stake in Wittington and received £83m in dividends. The payout came as pre-tax profits soared to £1.04bn from £879m in 2013, thanks to a strong performance at Primark-owner ABF. Sales dipped from £13.42bn to £13.06bn.

Former Quindell chairman Rob Terry gives his verdict on Slater & Gordon deal

first_imgIt’s crunch time for the £673m deal between Quindell and Australian law firm Slater & Gordon.As the embattled insurance claims processor’s shareholders prepare to vote on the disposal of its legal business to Slater & Gordon today, ex-chairman Rob Terry has indirectly given his verdict on the deal. More on this story: Quindell shareholders vote in favour of Slater & Gordon dealQuoub Park Estate, an investment vehicle set up by ex-chairman Terry, has said it will be casting a “yes” vote.The group, which says it’s a “core shareholder of Quindell”, believes the company is still being undervalued. Nonetheless, in light of the fallout from accusations by research group Gotham City, it believes the deal is in the best interest of its shareholders.”We view the deal as undervalued,” it said in a blog post.”Incidentally Quindell itself should have been able to attract a similar multiple and would have meant that those assets being sold alone would have effectively supported the total peak valuation of Quindell of £2.4bn, even without the upside from noise induced hearing loss work.””Considering both the unprecedented shorting attack that the company and shareholders have endured over the past year and the ability of the management and future board structure that is now to be in place to deliver on this underlying value, we consider the proposed agreement to be in the best interests of Quindell shareholders at this juncture.”It also said Quindell is worth over 200p per share, significantly higher than the 132p per share it’s currently trading at.And in another twist, Quoub recently said it had upped its stake in ailing broker Daniel Stewart to nine per cent. But last month the broker’s share price soared by 750 per cent after Terry increasing his stake to 7.4 per cent.So there’s little chance of the Quindell saga dying down anytime soon.

Tobacco picks FTSE up from a five-month low – London Report

first_img Share Tuesday 16 June 2015 8:51 pm Express KCS whatsapp BRITAIN’S main share index bounced up off five-month lows yesterday, boosted by firmer tobacco stocks and a broader stabilisation in equity markets which have slumped in recent sessions on fears over Greece.The blue-chip FTSE 100 index closed at 6,710.10 points – flat in percentage terms but above an intraday low of 6,656.90 points which marked its worst level since late January.Many investors remained cautious due to a deadlock in Greece’s debt talks, but some traders moved in to use the initial market pullback to buy up stocks for relatively low prices.A stabilisation in European bond markets also lifted stock markets off their earlier lows, while economic stimulus measures from major world central banks have cushioned the blows to European stock markets from the problems in Greece.“I am probably going to look to buy the dips. Whenever we’ve seen a sell-off, it’s been quickly bought into,” said Jeremy Steinson, head of trading at Killik & Co.British American Tobacco rose 2.9 per cent after being upgraded to “buy” from “outperform” by brokerage CLSA.The gains at British American Tobacco also lifted rival Imperial Tobacco by 2.2 per cent.However, mining stocks lost ground with copper prices tumbling to three-month lows, partly due to the impact of a stronger US dollar.The prospect of the US Federal Reserve signalling that its first rate increase in nearly a decade will come in September pushed up the value of the US dollar. A stronger dollar makes dollar-denominated commodities such as copper more expensive for non-US companies, and can be negative for miners. Higher US rates can also boost returns on US Treasuries, increasing their relative appeal over stocks.Among small caps, APR Energy slumped 25.6 per cent after warning its 2015 results would be significantly below market expectations.The FTSE is some six per cent below a record high of 7,122.74 points reached in late April, while it remains up two per cent since the start of 2015. Greek shares fell 4.8 per cent and the country’s banking index dropped 8.9 per cent as Greece and its creditors hardened their stances after a breakdown in talks aimed at preventing a default and possible euro exit. The leader of Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD), Thomas Oppermann, said he saw no willingness from the Greek government to reach an agreement.

The Happy Forecast: London’s happiest areas mapped in 3D show Fulham, Parsons Green, Norwood and Crystal Palace are most positive postcodes

first_img whatsapp Lynsey Barber The Happy Forecast: London’s happiest areas mapped in 3D show Fulham, Parsons Green, Norwood and Crystal Palace are most positive postcodes Wednesday 24 June 2015 5:15 am Tags: NULL The City is apparently a gloomy place to be, while the outlook south of the river is sunnier when it comes to how happy Londoners are.A new stunning 3D visualisation shows the happiest spots in the capital where you’re most likely have a smile on your face. Anyone wanting to cheer themselves up should head down to Fulham and Parsons Green in SW6, where researchers have identified the postcode as the most positive. SE19, SE21, SW21, and SE22 were also found to be happier spots in the year-long study, which took into account observations of people’s body language, verbal interactions as well as acts of kindness and aggression.[infographic id=”175″]Meanwhile, Tooting, Aldgate, Whitechapel and Mile End are best avoided. They were found to be the least positive, while a cloud of negativity also hovers over SW8, WC1 and SE1.[infographic id=”174″]Clubhouse Studios, the design firm behind the research, has turned the information into a stunning 3D map visualising all of London’s 119 postcodes. It lets people explore the city’s hottest happiness spots in real time based on the sentiment of tweets in the area – just like a forecast for the weather.“The Happy Forecast focuses on what psychologists call transitory public sociality; how strangers interact with one another within public spaces,” said Clubhouse Studios co-founder Dan Coppock. “With research showing that sharing the same space for even just a few minutes a day with kind and friendly strangers makes us more optimistic, improves our self-esteem and helps us connect with our environment. We undertook this lengthy observational study as a general healthcheck for our city’s public spaces, and the effect Londoners have on each other as they move through them.”Explore the map to see how happy your area is.
