TP ICAP reports revenue drop in the first quarter after market volatility

We also note that if TCAP’s recent activity levels hold up, and we continue to see scope for macro surprises to support volatility in the near term, YoY growth rates will look much better in H2 as easier comps are lapped,” Shore Capital analysts said.

ESMA takes on market data costs

first_img Keywords Trading rulesCompanies European Securities and Markets Authority The cost of market data has long been an irritant to the investment industry. New guidance from the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) aims to help address the issue.ESMA published a consultation paper that sets out draft guidelines on market data obligations under the latest version of the region’s market rules, known as MiFID II. Retail trading surge on regulators’ radar, Vingoe says Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news As retail trading jumps, SEC to rethink its rules Share this article and your comments with peers on social media James Langton Specifically, the paper proposes guidance on the requirement to “publish market data on a reasonable commercial basis,” and the requirement to make market data available for free following a 15-minute delay.The new guidance follows an effort to reduce the cost of market data to the industry. Firms must acquire market data to meet their best execution and trading oversight obligations, and the industry has complained that exchanges and other trading venues overcharge for data.“The provision of market data is essential for market participants to obtain a desired overview of trading activity,” the paper said.“Therefore, MiFID II introduced provisions to ensure that market data is available to market participants in an easily accessible, fair and non-discriminatory manner, to decrease the average cost of the market data and to make data available to a wider range of market participants.”ESMA said that the proposed guidelines are intended to ensure that the new MiFID II obligations on market data are applied uniformly.The consultation on the proposed guidance ends Jan. 11, 2021. ESMA intends to publish final guidance by the second quarter of 2021.

Electricity Market Priority Reforms Program Papers Released

first_imgElectricity Market Priority Reforms Program Papers Released NT GovernmentIn another significant step towards 50 per cent renewables by 2030, the Northern Territory Government has today released policy position and consultation papers on priority electricity market reforms.Addressing system security, reliability and efficiency; encouraging private investment and maximising the amount of renewable power in our network are the main focus points of the final position paper on dispatch and settlement, and consultation papers on essential system services and reliability reforms.The Northern Territory Electricity Market Priority Reform Program has been designed to promote competition by facilitating private sector investment in lower cost and cleaner technologies.Territory households and businesses will benefit from the anticipated downward pressure on electricity costs as a result of a more competitive and lower-cost industry.The Territory’s power systems are evolving as we transition to solar.The Priority Reform Program will assist government in delivering cleaner and cheaper power for Territorians by implementing reforms to:Dispatch – ensuring that the most cost-effective combination of generation (including thermal and renewable generators) is dispatched in the Darwin-Katherine system. This will be achieved by allocating the System Controller responsibility for scheduling generators based on up-to-date information about generator costs and availability.Settlement – facilitating private sector investment by making it easier for retailers and generators, including new renewables generators, to buy and sell electricity in the Darwin-Katherine system. This will be achieved by introducing financial settlement by the Market Operator.Essential System Services – ensuring the changing technical requirements for system security are met in the most cost-effective way by enabling their provision by the full range of capable technologies, including batteries and renewables generators.Reliability – ensuring system reliability meets customer expectations while also keeping costs are as low as possible.Electricity industry stakeholders are being fully consulted on the details of the priority reforms.Stakeholders are invited to participate in further stakeholder working group consultation on the essential system services and reliability consultation papers by making written submissions and attending stakeholder workshops.Final position papers on the essential system services and reliability reforms are expected to be released by mid-2021.The announcement of the Government’s priority electricity market reforms follows the Government’s announcement of a large scale battery energy storage system (BESS) for the Darwin-Katherine system at a project cost of $30M.Procurement of the BESS is progressing on track for delivery in the second half of 2022.The Northern Territory Electricity Market Priority Reform Program position and consultation papers can be found at https://business.nt.gov.au/electricityreformsQuotes from Minister for Renewables and Energy, Eva Lawler:“Territory Labor is delivering more renewables because we know it means cheaper, cleaner power and more local jobs.“These market reforms will encourage private investment in the new and innovative technology that will allow more renewables in our electricity system while ensuring reliable and secure power.“Electricity market reform is complex. Government has been carefully working through stakeholder feedback and design considerations to inform its priority electricity market reforms.” /Public Release.

Brazilian ‘Science Without Borders’ undergraduates study at CU-Boulder

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Contact: Carol Drake, Continuing Education, [email protected] Hannah Fletcher, Continuing Education media relations, [email protected] The University of Colorado Boulder welcomed 19 students from Brazil this semester as part of the new Science Without Borders Program and Brazil’s initiative to place and fully fund outstanding students abroad to supplement their studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.The students are among approximately 650 Brazilian undergraduates who have been selected to study on U.S. campuses with funding for their tuition, fees and housing from the Brazilian government’s Science Without Borders Program. The program, announced last year, provides scholarships to Brazilian undergraduate students for one year of study at one of more than 100 host colleges and universities, including CU-Boulder. Scholarships are given primarily to students in the STEM fields. After two semesters and an on- or off-campus internship, the students will return to Brazil to complete their degrees.“Science Without Borders interested me because I wanted to know what it was like to study and live on campus and to learn in a different environment,” said Victor Sabioni, an aerospace engineering student from the Universidade de Federal de minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte. “I am taking two classes that are not offered at home, and everything is great so far.“The campus is amazingly beautiful and everyone has been so welcoming and polite. CU couldn’t be better. It’s like heaven with homework.”The Science Without Borders Program at CU-Boulder is offered through a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the Division of Continuing Education.“The students are studying with their peers, living in university housing and experiencing life in Colorado and the U.S.,” said Anne Heinz, dean of Continuing Education and associate vice chancellor for outreach and engagement. “Several of the students already have indicated an interest in returning to CU-Boulder for graduate school.“CU-Boulder students, whether they’re from the San Luis Valley, San Francisco or São Paulo, will benefit from the enriched classroom conversations and experiences enabled by these programs,” she said. “These collaborations foster our future as a global society, and we look forward to CU-Boulder’s continued participation in this program.”An additional cohort of students is scheduled to arrive later this year for programs beginning in the summer and fall.The Science Without Borders Program is part of a larger Brazilian government initiative to grant 100,000 scholarships to Brazil’s best students to study abroad at the world’s best universities. The program is sponsored by the scholarship foundation of Brazil’s Ministry of Education, Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior. The program is administered by the Institute of International Education, an independent nonprofit specializing in international exchange. The institute has been working closely with the ministry and with CU-Boulder and other U.S. universities to place the students in study programs that best meet their academic needs.“We are pleased to be partnering with the government of Brazil and with the U.S. host campuses to implement this important program,” said Allan E. Goodman, Institute of International Education president and CEO. “At a time when Brazil’s economy is expanding rapidly, and Brazil and the United States are forging unprecedented ties in trade, energy and scientific development, we look to higher education as another area where our two countries should seek much stronger cooperation.” Published: Feb. 15, 2012 center_img “Science Without Borders interested me because I wanted to know what it was like to study and live on campus and to learn in a different environment,” said Victor Sabioni, an aerospace engineering student from the Universidade de Federal de minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte. “I am taking two classes that are not offered at home, and everything is great so far.“The campus is amazingly beautiful and everyone has been so welcoming and polite.

CU-Boulder research finds link between economic ties to UN, peacekeeper assignments

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail “Our model suggests that conflicts in economically isolated countries are less likely to receive attention from the U.N. than are conflicts in more economically engaged states,” authors Jaroslav Tir, professor of political science at CU-Boulder, and Szymon M. Stojek, who recently graduated with a doctoral degree from the University of Georgia, write. New research led by a University of Colorado Boulder professor finds that nations torn by civil strife that have strong trade relations with the United Nations’ key decision-making states have a 20-percent greater likelihood of receiving peacekeepers.These same countries – the five permanent members of the U.N. including the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China; along with Germany and Japan -fund nearly three-quarters of all peacekeeping missions around the world.Jaroslav Tir, professor of political science at CU-Boulder and Szymon M. Stojek, who recently graduated with a doctoral degree from the University of Georgia, wondered why, given their effectiveness in slowing or stopping civil strife, peacekeepers are used in only about a third of civil wars around the world.In their paper, “The supply side of United Nations peacekeeping operations: Trade ties and United Nations-led deployments to civil war states,” published recently in the European Journal of International Relations, they conclude that the answer can be found by following trade relationships.“Our model suggests that conflicts in economically isolated countries are less likely to receive attention from the U.N. than are conflicts in more economically engaged states,” the authors write.That makes economic sense, according to Tir. War destroys markets and trade, so nations have more incentive to invest their peacekeeping resources in places where the cessation of violence will have tangible economic benefits.The permanent U.N. Security Council members, known as the P5, are “looking for a good return of investment of their peacekeeping dollars,” the authors write. “The intensity of the economic relationship between the P5 and the civil war state at the time when the civil war nears its end represents a credible signal of future economic value.”Of course, not all P5 members are equal. The U.S. far outpaces all other members, funding 27.17 percent of peacekeeping costs in 2010, followed by non-P5 member Japan (12.53 percent), the UK (8.16), non-P5 Germany (8.02), France (7.56), non-P5 Italy (5 percent) and China (3.94). Russia, the fifth permanent member, comes in at number 11, funding just 1.98 percent of peacekeeping costs.Despite the imbalance, Tir notes that by funding the lion’s share of peacekeeping costs, the United States gains numerous advantages. First, it can usually keep its own troops out of the field. In addition, U.N. peacekeeping serves to protect U.S. interests while continuing to participate as a member of the international community.“If the U.S. goes it alone into some country, it looks like it’s out for self-interest,” Tir said. “In some parts of the world, that smells like imperialism or neo-colonialism.”Meanwhile, given that the U.S. foots more than a quarter of the bill, other member states are typically willing to defer when the U.S. gets behind a peacekeeping effort.The study implies that more trade and interconnectedness between major U.N. member nations and other countries can prevent civil conflicts from spiraling out of control. Tir cites the current war in Syria as an example of how isolation can translate into increasing civil conflict.Civil wars have killed some 17 million people since the end of World War II. And while they rage mostly within national borders, their costs all too commonly spread to neighboring countries. And once a cycle of civil war begins, it can be hard to stop. Nearly half of all civil wars in which hostilities cease are reignited within five years, research shows.“U.N. peacekeeping stands out as a fairly effective way to prevent civil wars from restarting,” says Tir, a native of Croatia, which struggled with civil conflict in the 1990s. “It’s not cheap, but compared to other things, it is also cost-effective.”Contact: Jaroslav Tir, [email protected] Julie Poppen, CU-Boulder media relations, (O) 303-492-4007 (M) [email protected] Published: Sept. 3, 2015 center_img Categories:Education & OutreachNews Headlines Photo courtesy of the United Nations.last_img read more
