Banks threatening to quit UK over new plans

Three of the five biggest lending banks in the UK – HSBC Holdings, Barclays and Standard Chartered – have stated they will seek to relocate if the government forces banks to split retail and investment divisions.Last Friday, the Government’s Independent Banking Commission published an “Issues Paper” outlining the agenda for its year-long investigation into the structure of the British banking system.Personally, I do not think the Commission will recommend UK-based banks be split up but the idea was included in the “Issues Paper” and thus remains a realistic option.We must remember that it was not the integrated banks that failed and economic historians have suggested that commercial banks with affiliates are less likely to fail than stand alone commercial banks.Striking out on our own like this would represent a huge risk – no other major economy has shown anyinclination to follow this path.Artificially restricting the ability of banks based in the UK to service all of the business needs of their clients then would result in many of these banks moving overseas. This would leave us with fewer jobs and lower tax revenues and would be hugely detrimental to the UK’s future prosperity.There are better ways to add security and certainty to the financial marketplace and there is a great deal of regulation due to come into force before the Commission announces its results next summer, not least Basel III’s recommendations setting out higher capital and liquidity requirements. But the final recommendations may well surprise us all and it would be very hard for the government to ignore any major proposals put forward by its own Commission.Speculation is already mounting as to the attitudes of the five individuals on the panel. The Commission must be strong enough to withstand external pressures and must also be prepared to accept that this is not a popularity contest.It is the responsibility of the banking sector to uphold and, where necessary, to repair its tarnished imagej. Much progress has already been made; it is the job of the Independent Banking Commission to ensure our banking system is structured so it minimises the risks and maximises the benefits to the UK taxpayer.Nick Anstee is the Lord Mayor of the City of London Show Comments ▼ center_img More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Pensiveness is mood of the day for Tories

first_img Pensiveness is mood of the day for Tories POLITICAL EDITORTHIS shouldn’t be an annus horribilis for the Tories. For the first time in 13 years, their leader will address the party conference as Prime Minister. The long slog of opposition is, at last, over. And yet things are not quite right. Maybe the party should have gone to Brighton or Bournemouth this year – anywhere but Britain’s “second city”, Birmingham. The International Conference Centre is right next door to Birmingham Edgbaston, exactly the kind of seat the Tories needed to win to secure an outright majority in May. Their failure to win in this constituency – and scores of others like it – cost them the election. It serves as a painful reminder of the fact that the Conservatives failed to seal the deal with the electorate.The mood in the conference halls reflects this. As one would expect for an era of austerity, excess has been banned. Deputy party chairman Michael Fallon has, for the second year in a row, outlawed champagne. Pensiveness, not celebration, is the watchword.Many in the Conservative party think David Cameron is glad the election delivered a hung parliament, rather than outright Tory rule. The coalition has allowed him to drag the Tories to the centre while slaying the right-wing dragons that made the party so unelectable, or so his critics allege. This is only partly true. Even Cameron’s biggest critics accept that his best trait is adaptability. He might not have wanted to lead a coalition government but he recognises its advantages. Policies have to be agreed by both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats, meaning they are examined more rigorously; by the time they are presented to the public, they should be watertight. Collective cabinet responsibility, rather than the autocratic decision making of the New Labour years, is back. Two parties, not one, will have to bear the brunt of public disquiet over the most ambitious fiscal tightening in Britain’s peacetime history.Nor have the Lib Dems stopped the Tory party from implementing some of its more radical policy proposals. Iain Duncan Smith’s welfare reform proposals, which will ensure that work is rewarded in the benefits system, have been rubber-stamped, or just about. Sadly, the Treasury has insisted the reforms are phased in over two parliaments – or ten years – meaning they are more likely to hit the brakes when a new welfare secretary or government takes the reins.Similarly, Michael Gove’s plan to roll out academies and free schools has got the go-ahead, even if vested interests in local authorities are trying to stop the proposals in their tracks. As Cameron-friendly Tories constantly point out with glee, their programme for government has emerged from the coalition negotiations relatively unscathed.There are, of course, major sources of anxiety. On defence spending, the Conservatives are beginning to think the unthinkable, much to the chagrin of rank-and-file supporters. Increasingly, it looks as though just one new aircraft carrier will be built, meaning Britain will only be able to guard its own waters. In the words of the late poet Philip Larkin, that means places we “guarded or kept orderly, must guard themselves, or keep themselves orderly” because “we want the money for ourselves at home”. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share whatsappcenter_img Sunday 3 October 2010 11:08 pm KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Tube union in talks to halt strikes

first_img Share Thursday 4 November 2010 10:42 pm Tags: NULL whatsapp The RMT union met with London Underground bosses yesterday to try and head off another city-wide strike over staffing levels in ticket offices. Transport for London (TfL) said the talks were constructive, while a spokesperson for mediation body ACAS said the two sides had arranged to meet again next week as part of ongoing negotiations. TSSA, the other union containing Underground workers, did not attend the talks and has no plans to meet with TfL. Another strike is scheduled for 28 and 29 November.

Two dangers to look out for in 2011

first_img Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 30 November 2010 8:59 pm KCS-content Tags: NULL whatsapp AS readers know, I am relatively sanguine about the outlook for the global and UK economies next year. But this doesn’t mean that I’m blind to the risks facing the recovery. Two in particular worry me. The first is the possibility of a break-up of the euro. Arturo de Frias at Evolution Securities has crunched the numbers. German, French and UK banks have €1.2 trillion in exposure to Spain, Italy, Greece, Ireland and Portugal. If all these economies quit the single currency and devalue by 30 per cent on their way back to the peseta, lira, escudo and other currencies, German, French and UK banks would suffer €362bn of losses – and these would be final, definitive losses, not fun-and-games mark to market numbers. UK banks alone would suffer losses of €80bn. Virtually every major bank in Europe would become insolvent – and that is before we consider insurance companies, pension funds and other financial institutions. The whole system would go down, as would the economy. It would be an even bigger disaster than the crisis of 2007-09. The euro is a defective currency that should never have been launched – but the cost of exit would be immense. The second major risk is the US housing market, which is in a much worse state than most people realise, and the authorities’ desperate attempt to reflate it. Yesterday’s Case-Shiller statistics confirmed that US house prices are falling again – they are down 1.5 per cent over the past year and over 28 per cent from their peak. The recovery since the trough has been cut to 4.9 per cent. This renewed decline is one of the main reasons for the Fed’s fresh emphasis on monetising debt, with dire implications for the rest of the world. Roughly 11m American households are in negative equity and therefore are saddled with mortgage debts larger than the value of their homes, 20 per cent or so of the 55.6m outstanding US mortgages. This is much worse than what we face in the UK. Even more worryingly, an additional 33 per cent – or 18.3m mortgages – enjoy an equity cushion of less than 10 per cent. So another one-tenth drop in house prices would take the number of Americans facing negative equity to over half. There are three problems with negative equity: by wiping out the wealth of individuals, it hits their spending and savings and robs them of any collateral against which they can borrow or set up a business; any default by individuals is translated into an actual loss for the bank; and homeowners cannot afford to sell to move to find a new job. The continuing housing crisis is one of the reasons why the Fed is so keen to engage in QE2. It worries that further house price losses could trigger a fresh round of massive, crippling write-offs at US financial institutions, bankrupt some and cause years of stagnation. Unfortunately, because the US is the world’s reserve currency, much of the liquidity the Fed is creating is seeping out of the country and ending up in Asia. Singapore, Hong Kong and others are facing bubbles through no fault of their own. The response is tension, the threat of trade sanctions and capital controls to prevent the inflow of money. There are other risks to the world economy. But the euro and the US housing market are the largest. At the moment, the most likely outcome remains continued growth next year. But watch this space.

Rates stuck at 0.5 per cent as MPC remains on the fence

first_imgThursday 9 December 2010 7:39 pm whatsapp whatsapp Share INTEREST rates will be held at 0.5 per cent going into the new year, after the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) yesterday voted against altering its stance.The £200bn programme of quantitative easing (QE) will also continue.Analysts expected the rate setting body to maintain current levels, yet prospects for next year are dividing opinion.Rates could increase as soon as March, and reach two per cent by the end of 2011, according to Simon Ward of Henderson Global Investors. Yet some economists anticipate a slowdown in the economy that sees interest rates frozen. “We expect bank rates to remain at 0.5 per cent for several years,” said Andrew Goodwin of the Ernst & Young Item Club.And it is likely that the MPC remains split three ways, said Goodwin.Andrew Sentance is thought to have voted for a 0.25 per cent rise in rates for the seventh straight month, after arguing for greater tightening.On the opposite side, American Adam Posen is expected to have proposed further QE to counteract the government’s fiscal consolidation.

Npower to sell power to the Grid

first_imgWednesday 12 January 2011 8:48 pm whatsapp Share KCS-content Energy company Npower plans to step in to support the National Grid during times of high energy demand by using its customers to help power the network. Around 50 industrial sites in the UK are already paid by the Grid to offer their stand-by generators for national use when the network is stressed, most recently during the snow in December, which led to record energy usage and put a strain on services. But Npower hopes to pay customers who have back-up generators to add up to 600 megawatts to the network, the equivalent of a medium-sized power station. “The National Grid is hoping to supply more energy from renewable sources like wind, which is unpredictable, especially in periods of high demand. The nature of the grid, especially as overall demand increases, makes it important for companies like us to step in,” Npower industrial and commercial market director David Cockshott told City A.M. The National Grid declined to comment yesterday.

New devices give shot in ARM

Chief executive Warren East said: “We are not surprised by the speed of the roll-out.“As the chips have more functionality, we are giving more value to our customers, and we expect to be paid more.”East said ARM retained the edge over Intel, which is targeting the mobile and tablet markets.
