He used his speech on reform of the EU’s Markets in Financial Information Directive (MiFID) rules to announce plans to examine pre-trade transparency. “The revision of MiFID is one of the key elements of an ambitious reform of the raw materials markets,” the EU’s financial markets chief said, stressing that commodity market regulation was high on his agenda. He added: “The revision of MiFID will not leave the questions which were brutally asked by the crisis without answers.”MiFID was introduced in 2007 and unleashed fierce competition, resulting in cheaper trading, smaller order sizes, hammered margins, fragmented share prices and upstarts winning chunks of business from traditional exchanges.He said the EU’s plans for a bloc-wide financial regulator alongside new MiFID rules will aid transparency in all trading markets, and warned: “We are ready to go further. This is a key issue. We will not hesitate to consider further measures.”EU agriculture minister Dacian Ciolos also laid into the futures markets at the same conference. “We need to go further, especially today on the issue of position limits to counter excessive movements,” he said in his speech. He added: “The role of futures market is not to feed speculation and some actors’ profits. The role of futures markets is to offer tools to anticipate, manage volatility and contribute to the matching of supply and demand.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsappcenter_img Show Comments ▼ Share KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

WORLD’S RICHEST RACK UP THE BILLIONS

first_imgThursday 23 September 2010 8:20 pm Share GOOD times are rolling back, steadily and surely, if the latest Forbes rich list is anything to go by. Amid all the doom and gloom last year, well over three quarters of the 400 billionaires on the list saw their wealth tank, with almost $40bn (£25bn) draining out of the coffers of the top ten.This year, the hard times are but a distant memory for the world’s wealthiest – over half of whom are now worth more than they were last year, while only 84 out of the 400 are now weeping over emptier wallets.Old Faithful Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, remains on his gilded throne as the richest man in the world for the 17th year at a stretch, with a fortune of $54bn – up $4bn on 2009. Octogenarian investment guru Warren Buffett was a distant second with $45bn, also up $5bn, while Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s bank balance stayed level at $27bn, keeping him in third place.The biggest mover was Facebook whippersnapper Mark Zuckerberg, whose fortune more than tripled to $6.9bn from $2bn, while the wealth of the entire 400 hit $1.37 trillion, up from $1.27 trillion in 2009.CHART TOPPERSWhile we’re on the subject of the Forbes rich list, there was an end to waiting yesterday for those desperate to find out what was talked about when the Sage of Omaha Warren Buffett met rapper Jay-Z earlier this week.Turns out, the unlikely pair have more in common with their “business strategies” than anticipated – and had a ball comparing stock picking to making music.“When you come to a conclusion you have to really not care what other people say. Just follow the facts and your reasoning,” Buffett said, adding that investors should think of stocks “not as something with a ticker symbol that wiggles around but [as] part of a business”.Cue fervent nodding from Jay-Z. “I could just hear all the similarities and all the things in what he’s saying, right?” the rapper said. “Because if you don’t look at the tickers, you’re really just searching for the truth within all the numbers and all the chaos. And that’s the key to being a recording artist too. You’re telling your story or finding your truth…”FASHION FIXMy, oh my, but purveyors of Lehman Brothers memorabilia haven’t half been busy of late, to coincide with the anniversary of the firm’s bankruptcy earlier this month.Not only have we two well-trailed auctions of Lehman’s art collection in New York and London tomorrow and next week: Fashion blog Refinery29 has also dredged up a lady selling bags embossed with the bank’s logo.These aren’t your bog-standard gym bags, rucksacks or embossed briefcases, mind – we’re talking evening clutch bags, fashioned out of a haul of racing green Lehman vinyl bank envelopes the designer picked up for next to nothing at an estate sale. The clutch bags – featuring the bank’s logo imprinted on the lower right hand corner – are currently retailing at $38, showing that there really is no accounting for taste.CHEESE WEEKFans of the pongy stuff will be aware that this weekend marks the start of national cheese week – a perfect excuse (if any were needed) to indulge.On hand to help out City workers in need of a fix is Gerrie Knoetze, the owner of Farringdon favourite Vivat Bacchus, who tells me he’s put together the most daring cheese board in the world to mark the occasion.The board includes a particularly smelly contender, of course – the Vieux Lille, which takes its nickname “Puant de Lille” from the French for “stinky”. Then there’s the priciest cheese around – the “Brillat Truffe”, which is flavoured with rare truffles – and the runniest, the “Epoisse”. In addition, there’s the oldest cheese Knoetze could find, a four-year matured Parmesan; the hottest, “Naga Chilli Cheese Bombs”, infused with one of the world’s hottest chillis; and also, bizarrely, the sweetest – a sticky toffee cheddar.Go on, we dare you.TEAM WORKKudos for commercial property group Lambert Smith Hampton (above) yesterday, taking the title for recruitment firm Ambition’s annual five-a-side footy tournament for property and professional services clients at the Powerleague centre near Bishopsgate.Soldiering on despite monsoon-like downpours, the teams – also including Henderson, British Land, Cushman & Wakefield, law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner and the runner up, Arram Berlyn Gardner – clearly had their competitive hats on. No less than four “sin-binnings” were doled out by the referees in the first couple of games, before the teams wised up to the strict rules of the field.JAZZ HANDSMerchant Securities’ resident jazz star John East, the deputy chief executive and chairman of corporate finance, is up to his musical tricks again, I hear.East – a keen player of the Hammond organ – is back with his regular band on 27 October at the 606 Club in Chelsea, with the addition of new guitarist Carl Orr and a horn section. For chums and interested parties who can’t get along to the gig, never fear – it’s being recorded to add to previous live numbers on a CD due for release later in the year.

This compared with a 2.1 per cent rise in purchases in the first quarter. Businesses built up their inventories, adding $68.8bn (£44bn) to their value, rather than $63.2bn as first thought. Inventories grew by $44.1bn in the first quarter.The tenth of a percentage point increase in GDP for the three months to 30 June added $3.4bn to the US economy. But economists warned that import numbers suggested that recovery from recession would remain slow. GDP was still far below the first quarter’s 3.7 per cent growth rate.

He worked there for almost a decade, latterly as one of two managers responsible for Herald’s £50m venture capital funds.The appointment leaves Smith free to focus on the ongoing development of the business, which earlier this year completed a £2.5m management buy-out of the remaining 50 per cent stake held by its former parent JM Finn.It is set to move out of JM Finn’s Coleman Street offices at the end of the month, into new premises of its own on New Broad Street.“It is the right time to enlarge our management team as we continue to gain market share in the smaller company space,” said Smith. “We feel that Tom has the right experience and understanding of our market to help us do this.” last_img read more

THIRD BIDDER IN LIVERPOOL FIGHT

His verdict follows almost five hours of legal arguments played out in a fraught, historic hearing inside Court 16 of the Royal Courts of Justice yesterday. If Mr Floyd rules against Americans Hicks and Gillett, who have become hate figures among the fans, then Liverpool’s legal team are confident the sale will proceed. But if Hicks and Gillett win the case, brought by RBS not Liverpool, they will be entitled to change the composition of the board, as they have tried to do, and consider other bids. That would then force RBS to decide if it is ready to call in its loan, which has a deadline of Friday, and put the owners into administration, which could incur the club a nine-point penalty from the Premier League.Arguing that a victory for RBS, and by extension the Liverpool board, might deprive Hicks and Gillett of a better offer, Mr Garolami QC said that the board had not given due consideration to bids other than NESV’s.In response, Liverpool’s legal team said that both Mill Financial’s offer and Lim’s initial bid had both been “significantly” lower than the terms offered by NESV, owners of baseball’s Boston Red Sox.

Chief executive Francis Salway said the firm’s plans were “bearing fruit” as he updated the market on trading. “We expect a wider range of buying opportunities in 2011, although current flows of capital into the sector mean that bidding may remain competitive,”he added. “The first quarter of 2011 is likely to see mixed news flow around the consumer and the economy, but we expect occupational demand from large corporates to remain steady.”Salway pointed to City shopping mall One New Change as an indicator of the firm’s success. He said that development was commanding rents in excess of £50 per square foot, a £10 increase on what the firm could have expected in 2009. One New Change has let 51 per cent of its units, with a further 20 per cent in the hands of solicitors, suggesting a tenancy agreement is near. That means the building is practically 80 per cent let. Meanwhile, Land Securities said it planned to start work on a retail development in Scotland due to growing demand.“It is our expectation that we will soon be in a position to start a further retail development at the Atlas Site in Glasgow,” Salway said.In November, Land Securities posted a 6.7 per cent rise in first-half net asset value.
