TRADERS PLUMP FOR THE LIFE OF LEISURE

first_img Tags: NULL Sunday 12 September 2010 10:08 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp CITY traders prone to bemoaning their lengthy working hours and stressful days might want to consider hopping over to New York the next time they get itchy feet.For an attack of the green-eyed monster is sweeping Wall Street after a newspaper profile late last week of the founders of Briargate Trading – who seem to have discovered the very epitome of a “work-life balance”.Rick Oscher and Steven Rubinstein, 20-year veterans of the NYSE trading floor, work a grand total of a couple of hours a day, concentrating their efforts on the manic open and close of the market.The rest of the time they spend trying out the City’s finest restaurants, playing tennis or golf, spending time at their children’s school and generally hanging out.“I can go play 18 holes of golf and then come back and trade and that’s a workday,” boasted Rubinstein to the Wall Street Journal.Says his partner: “If someone offered us three times what we make to do a real job, we wouldn’t do it. Money isn’t everything…”Talk about the life o’Riley.REVOLVING DOORAt last, confirmation arrives of a development in the small cap space that The Capitalist has been predicting for a while.Former Toscafund hedge fund manager Paul Compton has been on the hiring trail since starting at WH Ireland a month or two ago – and he’s now sealed the deal with a team from Astaire to bolster the firm’s corporate relationships.Ruari McGirr and Seb Wykeham – who led St Helen’s Capital before it was snapped up by then-Astaire boss Edward Vandyk not so long ago – join with immediate effect, focusing on small cap quoted entities, private equity and venture transactions, particularly in the resources sector.CELEBRITY SPOTTINGA dose of celebrity for the Square Mile before the weekend as none other than Travis frontman Fran Healy turned up to do a spot of busking outside Deutsche Bank’s headquarters.The appearance was perhaps something of a missed opportunity for Healy, who kept his guitar case closed and insisted he was campaigning only for War Child to be elected as the bank’s charity of the year.One imagines that his renditions of classics “Why Does It Always Rain On Me”, “Sing”, and “Turn” would have squeezed quite a few pennies out of moneyed staffers passing by.FASHION FORWARDBanks and high fashion aren’t the most usual of bedfellows, but private bank Coutts is on a mission to change that preconception with the latest London Fashion Week-inspired window display at its headquarters on the Strand.To mark its sponsorship of the LFW “Fashion Forward” award, Coutts recently commissioned a dress by last year’s winner Louise Goldin – made entirely out of paper. Apparently, the gown is supposed to raise awareness among entrepreneurs of the importance of business planning as well as creativity for success, though for most of the passers-by, it’s simply a beautiful piece of eye candy. Following its exhibition in the bank’s headquarters, the garment is destined for a London museum.SPORTING CHANCETo the House of Commons late last week for a dinner hosted by Bhanu Choudhrie, the executive director of care homes-to-luxury hotels investment group C&C Alpha Group, to raise funds for British athletes off to the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in October.Choudrie, also the chair of the business advisory board for the Commonwealth Games England 2010, lured MPs Keith Vaz, Sir Menzies Campbell and Sir Andrew Foster to rub noses with stars such as Dame Kelly Holmes, Darren Campbell and swimmer Karen Pickering to the event, which raised £85,000 for the athletes’ coffers. Holmes stumped up for a cosmetic dental surgery package (despite having a seemingly gleaming set of gnashers), while Campbell was outbid on a painting of Westminster signed by the unlikely trio of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Adsautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald TRADERS PLUMP FOR THE LIFE OF LEISURE whatsapp KCS-content Share last_img read more

Britain’s largest quoted housing landlord cautious

first_imgThursday 25 November 2010 7:36 pm BRITAIN’S largest quoted housing landlord Grainger said yesterday that its full-year operating profit rose 19.5 per cent to £94.2m, but expressed caution about the outlook for the UK’s housing sector.“In light of the ongoing challenge of the current economic climate, we remain cautious about the prospects for general growth in residential values over the next two years,” Robin Broadhurst, Grainger chairman said.Its net loss in the year to September narrowed to £10.8m from £122m a year earlierThe company said its gross net asset value per share rose 3.1 per cent in the 12 months to the end of September to 200p, up from 194p, and it proposed a final dividend of 1.2p per share for a full-year total dividend of 1.7p.Grainger, which also owns property in Germany, had said last month it expected group property sales in the year to the end of September to fall 23 per cent due to a challenging UK housing market, although trading profits will improve on higher margins. Economists have warned that the housing sector faces further falls in prices as rising unemployment takes its toll. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.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.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com whatsappcenter_img Share Britain’s largest quoted housing landlord cautious KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem Tags: NULLlast_img read more

This is to ensure a fair distribution of the rescue burden in the first place,” said Joaquin Almunia, Commission vice-president in charge of competition policy.ING received a €10bn capital injection from the Dutch State in October 2008, of which €5bn was repaid a year later. It also received €12bn in liquidity guarantees.The Dutch government, at the beginning of 2009, also provided ING with a back-up facility covering 80 per cent of a portfolio of $39bn in illiquid assets.“It remains our ambition to repay the state before the end of next year,” ING spokesman Frans Middendorff said. “We are not surprised but deplore the (Commission’s) decision,” he added.It will now have to pay an interest rate of 3.9 per cent on the 8.439 perpaper, made up of three-month LIBOR plus 360 basis points.

UK time bomb as population grows older

Since 1984 the proportion of British people under 16 fell by two per cent, and the proportion over 65 increased by one per cent, said the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Last month the government’s Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) warned: “if left unaddressed, upward pressure on spending from the ageing of the population might well put public sector net debt on an unsustainable upward trajectory.”According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the effect of population ageing on the UK is seven times greater than the harm inflicted by the economic crisis.“Pressures from ageing need to be addressed by reforming pension and health entitlements,” the IMF said. “Postponing required reforms would likely result in larger and more painful adjustment in later years.”The proportion of working age people slightly increased since 1984, the ONS reported. But Patrick Nolan of the think tank Reform warned it will fall in the future. “We’re going to have a decreasing proportion of people to fund services like health, pensions, and elderly care,” he said. “Young people have to pay for their own pensions while also funding pensions and care for today’s elderly, through taxes.”Countries like Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and Chile are reforming public services with mechanisms for people to save for their own retirement costs, said Nolan.However, the situation is worse in countries with lower fertility rates than the UK, the ONS reported. Italy and German have the most aged populations in Europe, it said, while Japan has the most elderly population in the world.The data also showed that one in ten people in the UK were born abroad, a lower rate than observed in most of the other surveyed countries. Switzerland and Ireland were among the countries with a higher proportion of foreign born residents. whatsapp Share Thursday 9 December 2010 7:43 pm center_img UK time bomb as population grows older More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Calls for new London airport

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL CALLS for expansion at Heathrow were rekindled yesterday after a report found the airport was losing out to European rivals.The report, overseen by Transport for London deputy chairman Daniel Moylan, found rivals including Frankfurt, Madrid and Paris had pushed Heathrow to seventh in terms of destinations served by international airports worldwide, from second in 1990.Business leaders pounced on the report to call for renewed consideration of expansion at the airport.Chief executive of London Chamber of Commerce Colin Stanbridge said: “The capital cannot afford to wait for thirty to forty years for a new airport without real improvements in the medium to short term. London is already under economic threat because of the lack of runway capacity.“A third runway at Heathrow would bring relatively swift economic benefits generating between £8.6bn and £12.8bn through increased productivity and around £20bn in wider benefits including new jobs.”London mayor Boris Johnson backed the report, and called for a new airport to be constructed, urging a reconsideration of his idea for a new hub in the Thames estuary.

M&S hires overseas retail chief

first_img MARKS & Spencer (M&S) has poached Jan Heere from Spanish fashion group Inditex to lead its drive for business overseas.The clothing, homewares and food retailer yesterday named Heere as its new director of international, reporting to chief executive Marc Bolland. It said Heere, fluent in English, Spanish, French, Dutch and Russian, has worked for Inditex in a variety of international roles, most recently in Russia. Last November Bolland set out plans to grow M&S’ overseas business with a view to becoming a multi-channel international retailer by 2015, growing sales, excluding Ireland, from about £500m this year to £800m-£1bn by 2013-14.Emerging markets in India and China are seen as key to achieving that goal. Heere’s appointment comes two weeks after M&S poached Laura Wade-Gery from supermarket group Tesco to head its internet business, underscoring Bolland’s commitment to also grow sales online.

US factory output gears up to 22-year high

first_imgMonday 28 February 2011 3:45 pm US factory output gears up to 22-year high whatsapp Tags: NULL Factory activity in the US Midwest hit a 22-and-a-half year high this month, new data has shown, which should help the economy weather rising oil prices and maintain its steady growth momentum. The Institute for Supply Management-Chicago’s index of business activity in the Midwest rose to 71.2 – the highest since July 1988 – from 68.8 in January as new orders and deliveries and backlogs increased.A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the regional economy.The data, combined with other upbeat regional factory surveys, suggested a national manufacturing report due out tomorrow could show more strength than had been expected. According to a Reuters survey of economists last week, the Institute for Supply Management’s index of national factory activity probably rose to 61.0 this month from 60.8 in January.“The big surprise of this recovery is how strong and how robust the manufacturing sector has been,” said Kurt Karl, head of economic research at Swiss Re in New York.The data had a minimal impact on US financial markets, where an announcement by value investor Warren Buffett that he was eyeing “major acquisitions” put stocks on track for their third straight month of gains.US government debt prices rose modestly, while the dollar fell to a 3-1/2 month low against a basket of currencies. whatsapp alison.lock Show Comments ▼ Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?
