BarCap to cut hundreds of London jobs

Posted On Sep 4 2021 by

first_img BARCLAYS Capital has confirmed plans to shed hundreds of jobs in its UK office even as the firm continues to hire in growth hotspots in Asia.Both front and back office jobs are set to go as the firm cuts down on costs in line with a fall in revenues this year. BarCap – the investment banking division run by incoming Barclays chief executive Bob Diamond – said yesterday that it had begun a 90-day consultation period that will allow it to reduce its headcount, a process only required if a company plans to cut more than 100 workers. The firm has had a difficult year, with revenues dropping off in a slow market for investment banks. Its income was down 14 per cent in the third quarter to £2.8bn, having already fallen 15 per cent during the previous quarter. However, the UK office is the only one currently slated for job cuts globally. The firm had already cut 300 jobs in August but overall added 2,000 workers in the first half of 2010 to fill places in its new equities advisory division.Hiring is expected to continue as normal “across those parts of business that are growing”, the firm said in a statement. Growing areas include fixed income, commodities and equities and advisories, but headcount is likely to expand at a slower pace than during 2010.Tim Hedger, deputy managing director of City recruiting firm Marks Sattin, said that although finance jobs are overall being added in London, the Asian job market is much more vibrant. “The UK is failing to keep pace with global rival, Singapore,” said Hedger, pointing to the market for skilled accountants.“In Singapore [it] is burning white-hot: the average salary rise has hit 20 per cent this year, although we have seen rises of 50 per cent offered to tempt departing accountants to stay at the firm,” he added.

Why today’s bargain shares can grow rapidly during the 2020s

Posted On Jul 5 2021 by

first_imgWhy today’s bargain shares can grow rapidly during the 2020s Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 21st October, 2020 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Bargain shares could produce impressive returns over the long run. Although they face short-term risks such as Brexit and coronavirus, their low valuations suggest there’s significant scope for capital growth in the 2020s.With past recoveries from economic downturns having led to rising stock prices, the same outcome appears likely in the coming years. Furthermore, the scale of monetary policy stimulus being put in place across major economies could strengthen the outlook for many businesses that currently trade at cheap prices.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Low valuations across the stock marketThe capital growth potential of bargain shares appears to be high. Although the share prices of some companies have rebounded following the stock market crash, many other businesses trade at prices substantially below their historic values.Investors may be significantly underestimating their capacity to survive a difficult set of trading conditions, as well as their potential to deliver improving profitability in the long run.This may provide long-term investors with a wide range of buying opportunities today. Those businesses trading at low prices because of wider challenges could present particularly attractive buying opportunities. They may even be able to expand their market positions at the expense of weaker rivals. This may put them in a strong position to produce rising profitability, and share prices, in the coming years.The past recoveries of bargain sharesBargain shares may struggle to post capital growth in the short run due to an uncertain economic outlook. However, the past performance of the stock market suggests that a return to growth is very likely.Even after the most severe bear markets, such as the global financial crisis, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 have recovered. This has allowed them to produce annual total returns of around 8% per annum.Therefore, this level of return seems to be very achievable during the 2020s. Certainly, some years, such as 2020 itself, may lower the average return for the decade. But on a long-term basis, the stock market has the capacity to deliver high single-digit annual returns that catalyse your financial prospects.Stimulus packages can encourage growthMany bargain shares recovered after their March lows, due in part to the monetary policy stimulus packages announced in major economies in North America and Europe. They’ve had a positive impact on asset prices this year, just as they did when they were implemented following the global financial crisis over a decade ago.In fact, a loose monetary policy led to a decade-long bull market following the 2008/09 crash. A period of low interest rates and asset repurchase programmes now looks set to remain in place in the coming years.It could have an equally positive effect on share prices, and cause a boom period that lasts throughout much of the 2020s. As such, now could be the right time to buy undervalued stocks and hold them over the next decade.

Japan climb in world rankings after narrow win over Tonga

Posted On Jun 18 2021 by

first_imgTuesday Jul 12, 2011 Japan climb in world rankings after narrow win over Tonga Japan upset Tonga on the weekend as they earned a hard fought 28-27 win in the IRB Pacific Nations Cup in Suva, Fiji. The win sees them climb two places in the IRB Rankings, up to thirteenth.John Kirwans team will meet Tonga in Pool A of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, so a win over them in Suva will have given them a nice boost in confidence. Theyve also thrown the PNC wide open, as did Fiji with their win over Samoa, which means that all four sides go into Wednesdays match with a win apiece.The match itself was fairly scrappy at times, with somewhat of a forward battle taking place and a few of the tries being ground out, rather than coming from fluid play. Japan worked hard on defence though, and did well to hold out a tired looking Tongan side in the last ten minutes.“Tonga is the most improved side in the tournament so far and got a good win against Fiji last week,” said Japan coach John Kirwan.“We knew that this was a big game for us. I am really happy with the courage our boys showed. The Japanese style of rugby is running around. I am very pleased what the players showed.”Despite the loss, Tonga still lead the tournament on six points going into the final round of fixtures. The other three teams are on five, so all three teams have a chance of winning it. Tonga face Samoa, while Fiji play Japan.

USDA Releases Report on Rural Broadband

Posted On Jun 14 2021 by

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USDA Releases Report on Rural Broadband Facebook Twitter SHARE USDA Releases Report on Rural Broadband SHARE Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue unveiled a groundbreaking report, A Case for Rural Broadband: Insights on Rural Broadband Infrastructure and Next Generation Precision Agriculture Technologies. The report finds that deployment of both broadband e-Connectivity and Next Generation Precision Agriculture Technology on farms and ranches throughout the U.S. could result in at least $47 billion in national economic benefits every year.“Broadband and Next Generation Precision Agriculture are critical components for creating vital access to world-class resources, tools and opportunity for America’s farmers, ranchers, foresters and producers,” Secretary Perdue said. “Under the leadership of President Trump, USDA is committed to doing our part to clear the way for nationwide broadband connectivity that will allow the next generation of precision agriculture technologies to thrive and expand.”The report also finds that if broadband infrastructure and digital technologies at scale were available at a level that meets estimated producer demand, the U.S. economy could realize benefits equivalent to nearly 18 percent of total agriculture production. Of that 18 percent, more than one-third is dependent on broadband e-Connectivity, equivalent to at least $18 billion in annual economic benefits that only high-speed, reliable internet can provide.For many years, USDA and the American agriculture industry have been actively researching the feasibility, usage and potential upside of Next Generation Precision Agriculture technologies. Until now though, the interdependency of these technologies and broadband e-Connectivity has not been evaluated. The report released today explores this symbiotic relationship and quantifies the potential economic benefit of broadband buildout and the complementary adoption of connected agriculture technologies. Going forward, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be engaged in multiple facets of infrastructure and technology deployment, including financing rural capital investments and supporting producers who are exploring which Next Generation Precision Agriculture Technologies are best suited to improve their operations and serve their customers.In April 2017, President Trump established the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity to identify legislative, regulatory and policy changes that could promote agriculture and prosperity in rural communities. In January 2018, Secretary Perdue presented the Task Force’s findings to President Trump. These findings included 31 recommendations to align the federal government with state, local and tribal governments to take advantage of opportunities that exist in rural America. The Report identified Achieving e-Connectivity in Rural America as a cornerstone recommendation. The Administration has been executing this priority call to action through the American Broadband Initiative (ABI), which reflects rural broadband build-out as one of President Trump’s directives to the Federal government. A Case for Rural Broadband: Insights on Rural Broadband Infrastructure and Next Generation Precision Agriculture Technologies opens the next chapter in the USDA’s response to this call to action.

National Pork Board Putting New Agility to Work

That is on display at the National Pork Industry Forum held this week in Kansas City, MO. Indiana producer and current board member Heather Hill from Greenfield is there.Hill says there is excitement over the new strategic plan and task forces that have already been formed, “and seeing where we’re headed for 2020 and what’s already being accomplished and in the pipeline to be accomplished yet this year. I think in our old process of doing things, we were in a 5-year strategic plan. Everything was very meticulous as to how it was planned out. We’re now able to move at the speed of business and react to things as they’re needed and respond.”There is a new format for the event this year which includes shorter delegate sessions. Also, “guest speakers are being brought in by National Pork Board and National Pork Producers Council for all attendees, so I think that’s very exciting to see how our priorities are shifting,” Hill said. “We’re shifting, changing with people’s needs and demands. Everyone has so many demands on their time and only so much time to get the information they need, so hopefully this forum has been very proactive in being reactive to what people need.”Hill finds great benefit to this forum where all types and sizes of operations are represented.“That’s where it’s at,” she said. “Small, big, all different kinds of niche marketers. It takes all kinds of us and all of us make up the pork industry and Forum is really that opportunity for us to all see each other and connect and network and see what is making this industry tick.”Hill is co-owner of Hill Farms, a farrow-to-finish operation that markets 30,000 pigs annually. They also grow corn, soybeans, and wheat. She is a past president of the Indiana Pork Board and is currently in a bid for reelection to the National Pork Board.Also at the Forum, Indiana State Veterinarian Dr. Bret Marsh was presented with the National Pork Board’s Distinguished Service Award.

A car blocked his way and its occupants opened fire, wounding him and killing his nephew, who was accompanying him. The chairman of the newspaper’s board, Najem Abdallah, has escaped two murder attempts in recent months.Journalist Hussein Al-Jaburi was injured in a similar ambush outside his Baghdad home on 11 February, dying of his injuries a month later.The security forces meanwhile carried out a heavy-handed raid on 19 April on the studios of Al-Fayhaa, a privately-owned TV station affiliated to the (Shiite) Supreme Assembly of the Islamic Revolution, in the northern Kurdish province of Sulaimaniyah. They arrested 10 of the station’s employees (whose names were not released) and held them for 24 hours without giving any explanation.The station’s management said a number of people subsequently gathered in the street outside the studios chanting hostile slogans in what appeared to be a “warning.”center_img News Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” April 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper journalist wounded in Fallujah ambush, nephew killed December 28, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan December 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
