Some big banks still face prospect of big fines related to financial crisis

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media “The threat of large, unpredictable settlements hangs over a few European banks that have not settled yet, adding to the pressure on earnings and capitalization from low interest rates and increased regulation,” the Fitch report says. “As a result, we expect banks will continue to prioritize cautious capital management and dividend policies, even though most have strengthened capital positions considerably since the financial crisis.” Global banks have already faced US$31 billion in penalties from U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) investigations into their pre-crisis RMBS business, the Fitch report states. Most recent, Deutsche Bank AG and Credit Suisse AG settled cases with the DOJ, agreeing to billions in fines and consumer relief. “Monetary fines have only constituted part of the settlements and substantial amounts have been agreed in the form of so-called consumer relief, which we believe are proving far less punitive in financial terms,” the report says, noting that this relief can include measures such as loan forgiveness, lower cost loans and financing for affordable housing for their most vulnerable customers. The banks have several years to provide this relief. Investigations into several other banks, including Royal Bank of Scotland, Barclays PLC, UBS Group AG and HSBC Holdings PLC are ongoing, the report says: “We do not expect the outstanding investigations to lead to significant new restrictions on banks’ businesses or to damage their franchises. Banks have tightened conduct risk controls extensively in the period since the RMBS activity under investigation took place.” Related news Keywords Banking industryCompanies Fitch Ratings High debt levels threaten banks’ strong results: Fitchcenter_img G7 tax pledge may be upstaged by CBDC work James Langton U.S. action on climate benefits banks, asset managers: Moody’s Several major banks are still facing the possibility of penalties for misconduct in the years leading up to the global financial crisis, which continues to weigh on their capital positions, according to a new report from Fitch Ratings Inc. Specifically, uncertainty about the size of the penalties that big banks could face for misconduct in the creation and sale of U.S. residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) prior to the global financial crisis continues to impact certain banks’ capital management, the credit-rating agency’s report suggests. last_img read more

Students who fled Hurricane Maria face storm of issues on the mainland

first_img Published: Sept. 17, 2018 • By Andrew Sorensen A year after Hurricane Maria decimated Puerto Rico, K-12 students who fled the island for the mainland face waves of continued issues, including housing instability, language barriers and culture shock, according to a new report from CU Boulder’s School of Education and Natural Hazards Center.  Thousands of Puerto Rican K-12 students fled the island for the mainland. Many still cannot return home.The report also advocates for more resources for schools and community groups to continue helping children displaced by the hurricane.Researchers Molly Hamm-Rodriguez and Astrid Sambolín Morales evaluated policy documents and program materials, conducted site visits and interviewed 27 community leaders, school officials and parents in Osceola County, Florida, in May. The authors, both doctoral students in the School of Education, wanted to evaluate the educational impacts on displaced students. The central Florida county is hosting thousands of Puerto Rican students and it expects more children could be on the way with hurricane season ramping up again.“This isn’t over for these Puerto Ricans,” said Sambolín Morales, who grew up in Puerto Rico. “They still need help. We want to create awareness of that.”The researchers saw a lot of positive progress, according to Hamm-Rodriguez, including food and clothing donation drives, counseling and cultural events. Schools have enacted a number of programs to aid families from Puerto Rico, including peer mentoring and community meetings. “There was a sense of hope that by coming together, teachers, schools and community groups could address some of the things they were hearing from students about their needs,” Hamm-Rodriguez said.However, Hamm-Rodriguez said, instability and a lack of resources remain some of the most significant issues Puerto Rican children are facing.Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) vouchers giving temporary housing assistance expired in August, and were not always reliable before that with the program setting multiple short-notice deadlines that resulted in eviction notices.Temporary housing, according to some interviews, meant living with as many as 14 people in one house.“There are so many complications and challenges,” said Sambolín Morales. “It’s not just immediate physical needs. They don’t hear the question, ‘How are you?’ often enough.”The report notes mental health referrals in the school district doubled in the last year, with the district attributing much of the spike to helping displaced students and their families.Another barrier students face is culture shock. The school system in Florida is drastically different from schools in Puerto Rico, according to the report. Classes are no longer in Spanish or bilingual. There is an increased pressure to perform on standardized tests.The researchers hope the report sheds light on new ways of supporting schools and community groups that are caring for displaced children.“Natural disasters aren’t just a one-time event,” said Hamm-Rodriguez. “Our research in Osceola County shows that the social consequences of Hurricane Maria have continued long after families left Puerto Rico and moved to the mainland U.S.”Categories:Health & SocietyNews Headlines Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

He has been a telecoms journalist for over 15 years, which includes eight…More Read more Author Previous ArticleMWC 2015: Day 3 highlightsNext ArticleTelenor’s Baksaas has roaming on his mind Tags Bell Labs president Marcus Weldon, who is also CTO of Alcatel-Lucent, poured scorn on competitors’ “ridiculous marketing” of 5G, refusing to be sucked into the game of headline-speed announcements.“We pride ourselves as being the most rational,” he told Mobile World Live. “Most of our competitors talk about 5Gb/s and 10Gb/s or some other number, but they’re not telling you the configuration, which is ridiculous.”The Bell Labs chief argued that headline-grabbing 5G announcements can be an unhelpful distraction. “Everyone now expects the bar in 5G to be 5Gb/s, but it’s based on nothing,” said Weldon (Ericsson demonstrated 5Gb/s speeds in July 2014, with Samsung following soon after with a ‘record’ 7.5Gb/s demo).Weldon prefers instead a much more nuanced 5G message. “We like to say it’s about the digitisation of everything, people and machines,” he said.For the Bell Labs president, 5G should not be a “forced leap” in technology, but draw heavily on existing technologies. He expects 5G to re-use existing radio air interfaces – LTE, WiFi and LTE-U – under a common control plane.Weldon, however, does see the need for a new interface. “Not because there is anything wrong with the existing one, but it’s not great for machines, as it requires devices to constantly synchronise, which consumes power.”Alcatel-Lucent and Bell Labs are exploring a new multi-carrier waveform dubbed UFMC (Universal Filtered Multi-Carrier), which they argue has much better efficiency than OFDM (orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) – the transport mechanism underpinning LTE and LTE-Advanced systems – for handing IoT traffic.UFMC is one of a number of new air interface candidates, sharing similar characteristics, being explored by 5GNow – 5th Generation Non-Orthogonal Waveforms for Asynchronous Signalling – a research project funded by the European Union.

News / Covid disruption sees smaller, ‘more nimble’ forwarders score over big rivals

first_imgBy Sam Whelan 15/10/2020 Small forwarders are winning against top-25 players in the battle for surging spot-buy airfreight volumes.According to freight marketplace Cargobase, which connects shippers with forwarders, the top 25 forwarders are only winning 30% of the ad hoc airfreight business they bid for on the platform, down from 53% in Q1.CEO and founder Wiebe Helder said: “The lack of automated quoting with the top forwarders is costing them heavily and, in consequence, benefiting the smaller players.“As a result, we are seeing increased efforts from the top 25 to connect to their quoting engines.”Mr Helder told The Loadstar smaller forwarders tended to be more centrally organised, allowing them to act faster and integrate more easily with external systems.“Most of the top 25’s automation is focused on pre-agreed business, or with their own customer-facing platforms,” he added. “But the latter doesn’t allow comparison with other freight forwarders.“If they spent more effort offering integration to automate their quoting in platforms like Cargobase, they would win more business. They might be more competitive, but if you don’t quote, your chance of winning business is zero.”Meanwhile, the spot-buy airfreight market has exploded this year, due to the lockdowns and disruption to supply chains. Cargobase saw a 40% uptick in expedited freight volumes in March as automotive suppliers looked to the spot market to keep assembly lines running.The growth has ballooned since, with last month’s platform transactions up 240% compared with December’s, with revenue up 273%. The bulk of the growth came in Q3 when volumes doubled quarter on quarter.“The main reason is that shippers and manufacturers either can’t get, or can’t rely on, agreed long-term rates anymore, due to the changes in capacity,” explained Mr Helder.“The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically increased rates and transit times. In May, Cargobase observed airfreight quotes between China and the US fluctuating between U$3 and $30 per kg.“These disruptions in the supply chain have forced shippers to procure freight services on-the-spot, at high cost, while keeping an eye out for the next most cost-effective solution.”Cargobase customers include Fortune 500 companies in electronics, automotive manufacturing, medical equipment and oil and gas, with users, freight frequency, urgency, complexity and volumes all increasing.Mr Helder said ‘cost avoidance’ was increasing too – the difference in average price quoted and final quote chosen. Across all modes, cost avoidance increased by 17.9%, but in airfreight it increased 26.7%, meaning logistics providers are “more astute, agile and aggressive than ever”, he added.“The pandemic has broadly been a boon for companies that are nimble in shifting gears and automating their physical processes through digital solutions, but a bane for those that rely on legacy systems and operations.”last_img read more

ADL and BYD to deliver electric buses to Merseyside

first_imgADL and BYD to deliver electric buses to MerseysideThe partnership between the two companies will see a fleet of 12 emission-free buses join bus routes around Liverpool city centre, as clean technology buses see to be becoming more popular across the U.K. October 24, 2016 Sam Pothecary Markets Markets & Policy Share Although the government seems to have all but turned its back on renewable energies, emission-free public transport is becoming all the rage in the U.K. The most recent initiative is in Merseyside, where a partnership between local company Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) and China’s BYD will supply electric buses to the city.ADL and BYD have worked together on various similar projects, however, the winning of this tender represents the first U.K. win that the partnership has had outside of the capital city of London. It won the tender from Arriva North West for the delivery of 12 Enviro200 EV buses.The buses will run the routes around Liverpool city centre, and will be charged overnight in the depot and the garage. The buses will be able to cover between 150 and 190 miles per day, and will also have enough electricity to have USB chargers fitted for the passengers.“It’s the first joint order from outside London and opens the door to a range of provincial cities wishing to upgrade their bus fleet to pure electric, emissions free standard,” commented ADL managing director of U.K. sales Arthur Whiteside. “The Enviro200EV provides a stylish, cost effective and proven bus to meet their needs.”Popular content ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.
