However, other mechanisms exist which mean UK court judgments will continue to be enforceable throughout EU and EFTA.” It means that consumers are able to take companies based in different countries to court domestically if they are unhappy with a product, for example. whatsapp “For the European Union, the Lugano Convention is a flanking measure of the internal market andrelates to the EU-EFTA/EEA context.

News / PHOTO BLOG: Air cargo congestion crisis at Dhaka Airport

first_imgBy Gavin van Marle 10/09/2015 The congestion crisis at Dahka Airport, the main air cargo gateway for Bangladesh is literally about to hit the ceiling, according to a series of photos recently taken this week and passed to The Loadstar by local sources.Sources also told The Loadstar that cargo could be delayed by at least two to three days – on occasion, this could be five or six days – and predicted that, with the start of the pilgrimage season,  the congestion could worsen.“Currently there isn’t too much space pressure on aircraft, but there will be some pressure which will grow as the pilgrimage season gets under way.“Flights to Jeddah will be full, especially as we understand that there are no passenger luggage restrictions for pilgrims, which obviously impacts on cargo space.”last_img read more

What is it? President Trump’s refusal to unequivocally denounce white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and white nationalists who chanted racist and anti-Semitic slogans in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend, and to assert instead on Tuesday that “there is blame on both sides,” led to widespread condemnation. What it did not do was surprise psychologists.They see two forces in play. Trump responds to criticism and the damage it does to his self-esteem by lashing out, including by taking an extreme position that is as much as possible at odds with his critics’. And he (perhaps unconsciously) recoils from undercutting his supporters because that would implicitly call into question their judgment, which includes voting for him.

IIF warns G20 on fragmented regulation

Related news Keywords Securities regulationsCompanies G20, Institute of International Finance OSC adds three to IAP FCA seeks consumer duty standards The group warns that a tendency toward increasingly fragmented financial regulation is a major obstacle to these objectives. The IIF says that, while it understands the instinct of national regulators to act in their own interests, “this fragmentation tendency is threatening to undo decades of cross-border co-operation”. Tim Adams, managing director of the IIF, said in a statement, “this co-operation was of fundamental importance in driving global economic growth in the recent past. If we fail to preserve the spirit – and the fact – of international harmonization of financial regulation, we run the risk of inhibiting the global economic regeneration so desperately needed by people everywhere.” The IIF says that the G20 should re-double its commitment to the Financial Stability Board (FSB), as the co-ordinating body overseeing both the development and implementation of international financial regulatory policies, and stresses that there’s a growing need for the FSB to be empowered to resist unilateral or protectionist regulatory measures.

The bank lobby group, the Institute of International Finance (IIF), is calling on G20 policymakers to “take decisive action to raise global growth, reduce unemployment, enhance the global regulatory framework, and bolster financial stability,” it said Monday. Absent that, the global economy may have trouble exiting the financial crisis and attaining sustainable growth, it cautions. read more

Asset managers deliver median 15% revenue growth in 2013: Casey Quirk

first_imgMedian operating profit for those firms was 31% last year, the second-highest achieved since 2009, and just below the median 32% profit margin posted in 2011, according to Casey Quirk.One group of firms — alternative asset managers — outperformed their traditional rivals in both revenue growth and profit expansion in 2013. Alternative firms enjoyed a median 35% revenue growth last year, compared with 14% for traditional firms. Alternative managers also generated a 41% median operating profit last year, vs. 29% for the traditional firms.While market appreciation powered the bulk of the increase in assets under management last year at listed managers, the alternative firms outgained the larger group of traditional firms in attracting net new money from investors, according to the Casey Quirk analysis.“Alternative firms are benefiting as both institutional and individual investors search for products and solutions that deliver less correlation and volatility, and additional sources of income,” says Jeffrey Levi, a director at Casey Quirk. “These firms are also achieving more consistent operating margins than in the past.”“The global asset management industry’s growth opportunities favor alternative firms and managers focused on retail and high-net-worth individual investors,” Levi says.Additionally, the analysis of publicly traded managers indicates that North American firms outperformed their European peers in 2013 in both revenue growth and operating profit margins. The 36 listed managers in the U.S. and Canada generated a median 16% revenue growth and a median 31% operating profit, compared with 12% and 27%, respectively, for the 12 UK and continental European firms in the analysis. The results illustrate why North American markets should continue to attract and reward sustained efforts by international managers, Levi says.
