No safe haven for HSBC if it leaves London

Tuesday 8 March 2011 9:20 pm KCS-content Share Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ BANKING regulators in Hong Kong would face a huge challenge to scale up their operations if HSBC were to abandon the City in favour of its former home, raising questions as to whether it would be welcomed into a rival jurisdiction with open arms.With HSBC’s chairman Douglas Flint warning that the UK bank levy is a “location tax” on being head-quartered here, speculation has mounted that it could leave if the Independent Banking Commission tries to break up its operations.But HSBC’s natural alternative home, Hong Kong, would not necessarily welcome taking responsibility for the banking behemoth.“It’s a very different beast in Hong Kong,” says Baker & McKenzie’s Tim Gee. “They’re not lead regulator to a bank with anything like the scale and complexity of HSBC.”The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), which currently supervises HSBC’s Hong Kong subsidiary, has a fraction of the banking supervision staff of the FSA, its equivalent regulator in the UK. The HKMA’s most recent annual report shows that it has 167 people in its banking supervision division, versus the FSA’s 988.The most recent figures available also show that in 2006, the HKMA was responsible for regulating banks with a total of HK$8.3 trillion in assets, less than half the size of HSBC’s HK$19 trillion global balance sheet last year.And although HSBC?could avoid the UK’s bank levy by moving its headquarters, it might not escape extra capital requirements. HKMA says it is “keeping an open mind” on the issue of surcharges for systemically important banks.HKMA added that it does not comment on matters concerning individual banks. HSBC refused to comment. whatsapp whatsapp More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org No safe haven for HSBC if it leaves London read more

Worried about the FTSE 100’s crash? Here’s how I’d invest £100k today to make a million

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The FTSE 100’s recent crash is likely to have caused many investors to become worried about its future prospects. The threat of coronavirus, as well as other risks facing the world economy, could realistically lead to more difficulties for the stock market.However, it may now offer better value for money than it did at the start of the year. As such, and with other mainstream assets appearing to have unfavourable risk/reward opportunities, it may be the most attractive means of investing £100k to make a million.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…Potential threatsThe risks posed by the spread of coronavirus could lead to further challenges for the stock market. So far, coronavirus has caused supply chain difficulties for a range of companies, while restrictions on movement have meant that consumer demand for a range of products and services has declined. If the disease spreads throughout the world economy, it may cause a sharp slowdown in economic growth.In addition, the upcoming US election and the uncertainty posed by Brexit may mean that investor sentiment is relatively weak during 2020. This may cause investors to adopt an increasingly risk-averse standpoint that leads to a further fall in the stock market in the short run.ValuationsOf course, for investors who are seeking to turn £100k into a million over the long run, the current valuations on offer across the FTSE 100 could be hugely enticing. A number of industries now contain companies that offer high dividend yields, low ratings, and strong fundamentals. They could produce an impressive rate of growth in the coming years, growth that is ahead of the FTSE 100’s past performance.Even if the FTSE 100 records a similar return in the future as its past gains, investors could stand to benefit from its 8% annualised total returns since inception. At a time when savings accounts and bonds offer similar returns to inflation in many cases, and the net returns on buy-to-let properties are lower for many landlords due to tax changes, the FTSE 100 could offer an impressive means of boosting your portfolio’s valuation in the long run.In fact, it would take around 30 years to turn £100k into a £1m portfolio when invested in the FTSE 100 at an annualised return of 8%. This could be a much shorter period than is the case for other mainstream assets.Recovery potentialClearly, the FTSE 100 may take some time to recover from its recent downturn. As mentioned, it faces a number of risks that could hold back investor sentiment in the coming months.However, the index has always recovered from its corrections and bear markets. At the present time, it may seem as though a recovery is unlikely, but economic growth has always recovered and investor sentiment has continually bounced back following a range of crises.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy a range of FTSE 100 shares to potentially turn £100k into £1m over the long run. The index’s low valuations could enable you to benefit from an improved rate of return in the coming years.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Peter Stephens | Monday, 8th February, 2021 While the stock market rally has pushed the prices of many UK dividend shares higher, it’s still possible to obtain 4%+ yields from UK stocks.Compared to other assets in a low interest rate environment, this could prove to be relatively attractive. There may also be scope for dividend growth in an improving economic outlook.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…With that in mind, here are two UK shares that could deliver relatively sound income investing prospects over the long run when purchased as part of a diverse portfolio of stocks.A high yielder among UK dividend sharesWhile many UK shares have seen their yields decline to low levels in recent months, BP continues to offer a relatively high passive income return. Its 6.5% yield means it could be attractive versus other UK dividend shares.The company’s latest quarterly update showed it continues to experience challenging operating conditions. Profitability came under severe pressure, which doesn’t strengthen its investment case. However, the prospect of an improving economic outlook could lead to better returns for the business should the price of oil and gas increase.Furthermore, BP is moving ahead with its plans to invest in renewable forms of energy. This strategy will likely take many years to come to fruition. However, it could produce improving financial returns that are more sustainable than at present. This may have a positive impact on its appeal versus other UK dividend shares. As well as on its capacity to pay a rising dividend in the long run.Dividend investing appeal in a stock market rallyAnother company that could have passive income investing appeal is Standard Life Aberdeen. The company has a relatively high yield versus other UK dividend shares. It has a yield of around 5% that could benefit from an improving outlook for the world economy, since the company’s financial performance is closely tied to the global macroeconomic prospects.Of course, the company’s recent results showed a decline in revenue amid difficult operating conditions. Should they continue, this could cause a weaker dividend outlook for the business.However, Standard Life Aberdeen has reported relatively strong investment performance from its funds. Over 68% of its assets under management are above their benchmark in the last three years. Furthermore, it’s making progress in capitalising on digital channels to grow its assets under management. This could have a positive impact on its prospects versus other UK dividend shares.Building a diverse portfolio of UK sharesClearly, a portfolio of dividend shares needs to be diverse in order to reduce risk and capitalise on a wider range of growth opportunities. The world economy’s prospects are expected to improve and high yields are still on offer across many UK shares. So there may be opportunities to build a generous and growing passive income in the coming years.

Rev. Shannon S. Johnston is pleased to announce his appointment of the Rt. Rev. Robert Ihloff as bishop associate in the Diocese of Virginia. Bishop Ihloff served as the bishop of the Diocese of Maryland from 1995 until his retirement in 2007. He will provide key support to the Diocese of Virginia during the transition between Bishop Ted Gulick’s retirement at the end of 2017 and the election of a second bishop suffragan later this year. Read full bio.“I have long admired Bishop Ihloff’s work in the Diocese of Maryland and in the broader Church,” said Bishop Johnston, “and I know how valuable his skills and gifts will be to our diocese during this time of transition. Bob is both a strong leader and a model of humility. Also, he is a compelling combination of optimism and straight-talk, in which each of those qualities is strengthened by the other one. He is eager to get started, and I am eager to welcome him.”Like Bishop Gulick, Bishop Ihloff (pronounced Ee-loff) will work out of the diocesan office in Northern Virginia. He will make Sunday visitations and provide support to clergy and congregations across the diocese.“Because my favorite ministries are preaching, teaching and working with parishes on issues of mission and congregational development, and because I find it humbling and exciting to work with clergy on discerning their roles in ministry, I am excited about assisting as a bishop in Virginia,” said Bishop Ihloff. “Virginia is a very healthy diocese with fine leadership.  Over my years in neighboring Maryland, I have come to appreciate the ways in which the Diocese of Virginia models mission and ministry, and I feel privileged to share a small role in that ministry as your bishop associate.”Bishop Ihloff’s first day on the job is March 11.

It’s a characteristic of who we are. Serving others and working for a common good is something we are capable of,” said Gross.Gross has become a prominent figure in Pasadena over the past few decades by dedicating his life to a selfless journey of homelessness prevention and outreach programs through the Union Station Homeless Services non-profit which provides resources and programs to homeless families and individuals in need.Gross will be retiring in June after 21 years of service.“From what I’ve seen at Union Station, engagement with such issues makes an impact on volunteers that last a lifetime. By engaging in community service, we are able to live out our highest, greatest and most noble values,” explained Gross.Mayor Terry Tornek presented Gross with an award that recognizes Gross’s longstanding dedication to Pasadena and issues of homelessness.“During his tenure, Union Station has made a focus not just on individuals, but also on families. His compassion and wisdom has enabled Union Station to help thousands of people improve their lives and live their lives with dignity,” said Tornek.Gross’s speech was followed by a cheerful performance from the Pasadena High School’s Vox Vita Choir and Cantor Ruth Berman Harris of the Pasadena Jewish Temple providing a gentle song on the acoustic guitar.The room was quickly filled with a wall of hundreds of voices joining together and singing along to the prayer songs in unision.In addition to the guests leaving the breakfast with a full stomach, they also left with an inspirational mindset and a powerful reminder of each and every person’s importance within the community, in which Rabbi Marvin Gross was sure to spread this notion to everyone who attended.“I feel that folks should give to their community regardless of how much they have received. Giving should be an early, original, primary action itself, not one that follows only after a period of receiving,” said Gross.Until next year, the 43rd Annual Mayoral Interfaith Breakfast was a gathering that shined a light on the positive forces of Pasadena.
