It is understood that officials met with more than 80 investors during the roadshow, with one source saying there was a “huge amount” of interest in the bond.Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank are handling the deal, which is expected to raise between $500m (£320m) and $1bn (£640m), according to a report in the Sunday Times.The bond is expected to be priced with an interest rate of between 11 and 12 per cent. last_img read more

The challenger will have mobile and digital channels, as well as a contact centre. “Mobile is already the dominant mode of interaction for people with their banks but utterly underused since it opens up the opportunity for a money dialogue. However, we are not aiming to be a niche mobile only bank,” Knox told City A.M.Tandem believes its main competitors will be the big highstreet banks such as HSBC, Barclays, RBS, Santander and Lloyds. Challenger banks are tempting customers away from these with better products and customer service, albeit with mixed results.Challenger banks are currently contending with Chancellor George Osborne’s plans to gradually reduce the bank levy rate over the next six years from 0.21 per cent to 0.1 per cent, while introducing a new tax on the entire sector, which could stifle their growth. Knok told City A.M. that while customer projections for the first six to 12 months were “conservative” it has some “secret strategies up our sleeve”.”More on that later,” he said.

Sprott strikes deal to buy Toscana companies for $14 million

Investment firm Sprott Inc. (TSX:SII) says it has signed a letter of intent to acquire Toscana Capital Corp, and its Toscana Energy unit for $14 million in cash and Sprott shares. The Toronto company said Wednesday it could also pay another $5.25 million in shares over three years if Toscana hits its financial targets. The Toscana group is based in Calgary and helps finance energy companies and invests in the oil and gas sector. Toscana has assets of about $161 million. The companies hope to close the deal by the middle of the second quarter. “In the Toscana Companies, we are acquiring a leading team of energy specialists and lenders as well as a Calgary presence,” said Peter Grosskopf, chief executive of Sprott. “We believe that each of Toscana’s energy lending business, managed working interest portfolio and flow through investment vehicles have significant growth potential.” Joseph Durante, CEO of Toscana, said “Sprott is a well-known natural investor and with the combination of our two companies, Sprott’s footprint in Calgary will only grow.” Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Keywords Mergers and acquisitionsCompanies Sprott Inc.

Cyber security risks could factor higher in credit analysis: Moody’s

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Size isn’t everything when it comes to banks’ cybersecurity: Fitch The ever-growing threat of cyber attacks may start to become a bigger factor in assessing credit risks, says credit rating agency Moody’s Investors Service in a new report. Cyber security risks are on the rise across all sectors, and that “the implications could start taking a higher priority in credit analysis,” the Moody’s report says.Assessing how prepared an organization is for a cyber threat poses challenges, the Moody’s report adds, stressing that the problem is complex. However, the report notes that cyber risk is becoming an important priority across all sectors. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media James Langton Infrastructure hacks pose large financial risks: Fitch Industries that house significant amounts of personal data, such as financial institutions, health care organizations, educational facilities, and retail companies are at greatest risk to experience large-scale data thefts that result in serious reputational and financial damage, the Moody’s report says. Other sectors that are considered critical infrastructure, such as electric utilities, power plants, and water or sewer systems, are more exposed to attacks that could lead to large-scale service disruption, causing substantial damage to sovereign, state and local governments or utilities. However, this type of attack would elicit immediate government intervention to restore operations, resulting in lower potential credit risk, the Moody’s report says. Currently, Moody’s views material cyber threats as similar to other extraordinary event risks, such as natural disasters, with any credit impact depending on the duration and severity of the event. “Cyber risk means different things for different sectors,” says Jim Hempstead, Moody’s associate managing director, in a statement “While we do not explicitly incorporate cyber risk as a principal credit factor today, our fundamental credit analysis incorporates numerous stress-testing scenarios, and a cyber event could be the trigger for one of those stress scenarios.” The Moody’s report says it expects corporations and organizations will prioritize mitigating cyber risk through enhanced governance and investments in cyber defenses, but that security challenges will remain due to the constantly evolving threat.”More cyber security expertise is being added to boards and trustee governance,” says Hempstead. “We expect many issuers will create distinct cyber security subcommittees, which is a material credit positive.” The rising threat of ransomware Related news Keywords Cybersecurity last_img read more

Bringing crypto-trading platforms to heel

first_img James Langton Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Bitcoin should face tough capital rules, Basel Committee says Keywords Cryptoassets,  RegulationCompanies Canadian Securities Administrators, Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada Regulators must avert looming irrelevance: IAP Regulators issue new reporting guidance on systems outages Bitcoin in the hands of a child. The boy holds a metal coin of crypto currency in his hands. 123RF That approach doesn’t mandate a strict one-size-fits-all registration requirement. Instead, the regulators provided guidance on how firms that offer crypto trading can comply with existing rules: based on their operations, firms may face additional conditions on their registration or they may seek exemptions from existing requirements.The guidance sets out the regulators’ approach to businesses that are considered “dealer” platforms, those considered “marketplaces,” and those that are hybrids (such as marketplaces that perform some dealer functions). It also addresses whether platforms allow trading in cryptoassets that are considered securities or derivatives, or are contractual rights to underlying cryptoassets.“This notice does not introduce new rules specifically applicable to [crypto-trading platforms],” the regulators said, adding that they consider crypto platforms to be “already subject to existing requirements under securities legislation in Canada.”The notice also signals a divergent approach to regulating crypto in Canada along geographic lines, at least during the transition from Monday’s guidance to crypto firms actually coming into compliance with the regulators’ expectations.According to the notice, platforms operating in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick will be expected to start the registration process with IIROC during an interim transition period towards full compliance with the regulators’ expectations. Regulators in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan “will consider other regulatory approaches during the interim period,” it said.The interim approach is intended to allow firms to continue operating while starting to bring their businesses in line with the new guidance.“Under this interim approach [platforms] that trade crypto contracts will be subject to terms and conditions that will be tailored to their business model, as appropriate, and that will address key risks to clients,” the notice said.On Monday the Ontario Securities Commission demanded that crypto-trading platforms contact the regulator by April 19 to discuss their plans for compliance.“The guidance in our notice details steps platform operators need to take to comply with securities legislation as they prepare to fully integrate into the Canadian regulatory structure,” said Louis Morisset, chair of the CSA and president and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), in a release.“To bring their operations into compliance, [crypto platforms] should contact their local securities regulator now to discuss the registration process and address applicable requirements,” he added.The regulators stressed that the overall goal of their approach “is to ensure there is a balance between needing to be flexible in order to foster innovation in the Canadian capital markets and meeting our regulatory mandate of promoting investor protection and fair and efficient capital markets.”Separately, IIROC also announced the new membership of its cryptoasset working group, which will provide the regulator with input on the ongoing development of oversight in this area.The new group includes crypto industry experts, legal and compliance professionals, academics and others.“We must continue to rethink the way we regulate in order to support innovation — all while ensuring investors are protected. With this new group of diverse members, IIROC will continue its work assessing how our regulatory requirements might be best tailored for crypto-assets,” said Victoria Pinnington, IIROC’s senior vice-president, market regulation, and chair of the working group, in a release. Related news Most crypto-trading platforms that deal with Canadian investors will have to register and join the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) under new regulatory guidance issued Monday.In a joint notice, IIROC and the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) set out their approach to overseeing Canada’s fledgling crypto-trading business.

Australia’s free trade agreements deliver more tariff cuts

first_imgAustralia’s free trade agreements deliver more tariff cuts Department of Foreign Affairs and TradeStarting today, Australian farmers and businesses will benefit from more tariff cuts delivered by our network of free trade agreements.Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Dan Tehan said the latest round of tariff cuts would provide greater opportunities for export expansion and job growth.“Australia is a trading nation and the products we export are high quality and in demand globally,” Mr Tehan said. “Reducing trade barriers will boost export opportunities for Australian farmers and businesses in key export markets which translates to more jobs and economic growth in Australia.“Australian fresh or chilled beef exporters will benefit from further cuts to Canadian tariffs in 2021 under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. The value of fresh or chilled beef exports to Canada increased by 92 per cent to reach $33 million in 2019-20.“Tariff reductions on Australian sheep and goat meat exports under our bilateral free trade agreement with Korea helped increase those exports by eight per cent, to reach $169 million in 2019-20. Starting today, tariffs on these products will be cut from 6.7 to 4.5 per cent.“Under our bilateral free trade agreement with Indonesia, Australian honey exporters will benefit from tariffs being cut from 3.25 to 3 per cent in 2021. Australian honey exports to Indonesia increased by 191 per cent to reach $808,000 in 2019-20.“International trade helps create jobs and drive economic growth and the Morrison Government has focused on negotiating free trade agreements in the national interest. The proportion of Australian trade covered by free trade agreements is around 70 per cent, up from around 27 per cent in 2013.” /Public Release.

Photo by Mike SchultzLomax, a former NFL quarterback and Portland State standout, resigned as the team’s head coach after two seasons.He told his players just prior to the Christmas break. James Ensley, the school’s athletic director, confirmed the news last week.Lomax, who lives in Wilsonville, Ore., said the commute was just too much. “The distance caught up to me,” he said. “I wanted to be there more. I just can’t.” With another grandchild on the way, Lomax said he could not commit to the time required to make it work at Fort Vancouver.Lomax said he hopes the school can get two or three more teachers or other on-campus employees who want to coach football.“That program will continue to suffer if they do not do that,” Lomax said.The Trappers went with an independent schedule in 2019, and had more competitive performances than in recent years. They got their first win since 2016 in Week 8. And in Week 9, the program hosted a game on its campus for the first time.While the WIAA and athletic directors around the state figure out reclassification — Fort Vancouver might become a Class 2A school — the football team will remain an independent, Ensley said.“We’ve got to get a guy in here who is a kid magnet who wants to build,” Ensley said. “It’s a thing we’ll have to build and continue to build with the kids and the community.”Lomax thanked his players for their work under him.“I loved all of them who came out and stuck with it,” he said. “They’re warriors in so many ways.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center receives prestigious Baby-Friendly Designation Next : Special moments: Basketball scoring records fall at Fort Vancouver, UnionAdvertisementThis is placeholder text I allow to create an accountWhen you login first time using a Social Login button, we collect your account public profile information shared by Social Login provider, based on your privacy settings.

Ann Rivers (R-18th District) speaks to a gathering at Felida Park on Thursday. The senator was there for an informational meeting, hoping to empower parents who feel left out of the process in regard to how the state and school systems are treating children during the pandemic.

The senator was there for an informational meeting, hoping to empower parents who feel left out of the process in regard to how the state and school systems are treating children during the pandemic. Photo by Paul Valencia“There’s a lot of cynicism among parents because parents are looking at the data. And the decisions that are being made by leaders don’t really reflect the data,” said Rivers, a Republican who represents the 18th Legislative District.“I trust parents. I trust parents to keep their children safe,” she added.A parent noted that Evergreen Public Schools never fully opened this school year, remaining at two days a week. Other parents showed their disgust with plans for having children wearing masks not just now but next school year, as well. And there was a brief discussion on Critical Race Theory being taught in schools. Rivers reminded the group that she voted against that bill.“All of this stuff that we’re doing is creating deeper division,” she said.The senator asked folks to get involved by building respectful relationships with school board members.The gathering, which became much larger than organizers anticipated, grew louder for the last part of Rivers’ public statements. “We want action. What are you going to do?” a voice called out at Rivers.“Part of what I am here today is to empower you to take action,” Rivers said. “Because one of me is pretty good. A whole bunch of you is even better.”In what was supposed to be a small gathering grew to more than 100 people when Washington state Sen.

Photo by Paul ValenciaIn what was supposed to be a small gathering grew to more than 100 people when Washington state Sen. Ann Rivers spoke to parents about children having to wear masks at school and other pandemic measures. Photo by Paul ValenciaA woman in the crowd stood on a picnic table and gave a passionate plea about rights, laws, and the constitution. That ended the public speaking event with Rivers, but Rivers remained at the park for another hour, talking to dozens of people who wanted to have their voices heard.“I think what we saw here today was the frustration that parents are feeling,” Rivers said. “They feel like they have no control.”Rivers added it is the responsibility of elected officials to meet with people, try to give them the best information available, and to empower them to be advocates for their families and communities. “My responsibility is to be here. My responsibility is to help educate. My responsibility is to carry the message to my colleagues and the governor. And it is my responsibility to let them know I care about them,” Rivers said. “I care about what they care about, and I’m working on their behalf.”Interestingly, Rivers said she thought it was just going to be her and a handful of parents, maybe a dozen, getting to know each other while their children played in the park.In fact, three of the organizers — Mary Curtis, Alyssa Curran, and Emily Porter — all were surprised when more than 100 people showed up to the event.“We have a wonderful group, and it caught like a wildfire,” Curtis said. Mary Curtis and Alyssa Curran were two of the organizers for Thursday's informational meeting with Washington state Sen. Ann Rivers. Curtis, Curran, and Emily Porter (not pictured) said they are grateful that Rivers showed up to meet with everyone.

They want the local government to decide issues such as masks for students and social distancing in the schools. And if liberties are taken away, Curtis wants government leaders to explain why. “We feel there should be a choice. We are not against people wearing masks. We are against being forced to do something that is not … sensical,” Curtis said.The organizers also felt bad for Rivers when the crowd grew and did seem to become a bit adversarial. Compared to what has taken place at other gatherings in the last year in regard to political rallies and/or protests, this appeared tame to most observers.Washington state Sen.

That was the intent,” Curran said.“The goal is unity, not division,” Porter added. “Our kids are not a partisan issue. We should support each other.
