While institutions realise they have been helped by an improving trading environment, they argue they have made strenuous efforts to shrink their balance sheets and sell off non-essential assets.S&P said a sustained upturn in UK banking performance remained “far from certain” despite a series of forecast-smashing results earlier in August. Stronger players Barclays and HSBC generated pre-tax gains of £4bn and £7bn respectively, while state-owned Lloyds Banking Group earned £1.6bn and Royal Bank of Scotland made a profit of £1.1bn.But the fortunes of banks are closely tied to an uncertain economy, S&P said, with several lenders still deeply reliant on government-guaranteed wholesale funding and in need of further refinancing in the coming years.The report concludes that the future credit ratings of British banks are likely to largely remain out of the hands of their management teams. S&P’s key concern is government economic policy, which it expects to squeeze incomes.Analysts wrote: “While a range of management actions have contributed to the improved performance, in our view, the more important contributory factors were the developments beyond the control of banks’ management… We expect economic and market developments that are largely beyond the control of banks’ management teams will continue to disproportionately influence UK bank ratings throughout the remainder of 2010.”Angela Knight, chief executive of the British Bankers’ Association, said: “The UK banks have done substantial capital raisings and have been repairing their balance sheets, writing off bad loans and so on. That has been widely recognised – a lot of work has taken place.”A source close to one of the part-nationalised banks emphasised the efforts being made by Lloyds and RBS’ management teams to shed non-core units to comply with European Union rules on accepting state aid. RBS has sold its share of a commodities trading joint venture, Sempra, to JPMorgan and offloaded 318 high street branches to Santander.“Banks are working on their core businesses too, trying to attract more deposits,” the source said.

The rise was in sharp contrast to the 23 per cent loss in AUM seen in 2008, the Pensions and Investments/ Towers Watson World 500 ranking report said. However, total AUM were still well below the previous high seen in 2006. During the past five years only half of the fastest growing firms had done so in a primarily organic way, with the other half doing so by merger or acquisition, the report said.Carl Hess, global head of investment at Towers Watson, said last year was “almost the exact opposite of 2008” as most fund managers posted strong results. But he warned that while markets were recovering they remained fragile, reflecting “weak underlying economic fundamentals and the oscillating risk appetites among institutional investors”.Fund managers from developing countries continued to grow, more than doubling their share of global AUM to around four per cent in the last decade, the report said. In contrast Japanese fund managers’ share of AUM fell from over 13 per cent to under 7 per cent in the same period.Some fund managers have seen exceptional growth in the last five years, including BlackRock, which has risen from 41st in the league table to top with $3.4bn AUM. BNP Paribas has risen 26 places to seventh in the last five years with $1.3bn AUM, There were 12 US-based investment managers in the top 20 last year, up from ten in 2008, while the other eight managers are all based in Europe, according to the report.

first_imgThursday Apr 28, 2016 Throwback Thursday – Harry Robinson’s blistering debut try vs the Barbarians Today young Welsh winger Harry Robinson announced that he is retiring from rugby with immediate effect due to injury. Robinson, now just 23 years old, made his debut for Wales against the Barbarians in 2012, scoring a blistering try down the right wing.Robinson came to prominence with Wales U20s, and was a Wales Sevens squad member. He was called up the senior side’s training camp in 2012 ahead of the Six Nations, however it wasn’t until he got his chance playing on the wing against the Barbarians that he made his senior debut.A persistent neck injury put an end to his career, ending with three international caps.“I never thought I would be in this position at the age of 23 – having to call an end on my professional rugby career at such an early age,” Harry expressed in a statement today.“I am utterly devastated and it is a very, very bitter pill to have to swallow.“During a game at the end of last season I suffered a significant neck injury that subsequently needed serious neck surgery. It came as a huge shock to hear the surgeon explain that it was unlikely I would ever return to play professional rugby.“This was not a prognosis that I wanted to believe or accept. Following successful surgery to ensure that I was at no greater risk of making my injury and condition worse I was determined to come back to play again for the Scarlets. It is difficult to accept that I will never do this again.“I have worked so hard over the last 10 months to return to full fitness and regain the functionality I had before the injury. It is with great regret that I have been unable to do this.“As it has turned out the consultant was correct with his initial assessment of my injury and the ultimate impact on my career. “Whilst I am devastated I count myself very lucky and enormously privileged. I have had a fantastic six years as a professional rugby player with both Cardiff Blues and Scarlets. I have travelled all over the world at every age grade, Wales 7s and the Welsh squad. I have made many friends who I know will be friends for the rest of my life.“I would like to thank a whole host of people – the Scarlets; the coaches and the medical team there who have supported me through my recovery with patience and understanding.“To the Blues and Dai Young who gave me my first professional contract. To all the players I have played with, and against, who have made my playing years such a blast. I walk away with fond memories that will stay with me forever. I wish that it had lasted longer but it was not to be. Sometimes these are the cards you are dealt in life.“New challenges lie ahead of me now and I will embrace these with the commitment and dedication I have learnt over the years as a player.”We wish Harry all the very best as he takes on those new challenges.Below is a quick clip of that memorable debut try against the Barbarians in Cardiffcredit: julian zeeADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgUK Fundraising launches weekly Graphic Traffic tools and tips newsletter Howard Lake | 25 April 2019 | News Following the success of its Graphic Traffic courses over the past six years, UK Fundraising is publishing a weekly email newsletter sharing tools and tips for charities on creating and using images and video.The weekly updates will focus on one or sometimes two tools that are free or low-cost and which charities or small businesses could use to boost the visual impact of their communications and marketing.The updates will look at:mobile appsdesktop toolsresources, such as royalty free or open source image collectionspractical tips on using images and videos on social channelsThe newsletter is available on a monthly subscription of €7 (it’s published via a German platform) but with a 30-day free trial.It has been developed in response to the success of the Graphic Traffic course, but also the growing number of image and video tools we come across at UK Fundraising. We know that most charity staff don’t have the time to hunt down the right tools for creating images, and many don’t have the confidence to create content to support their messaging online. A weekly tip and recommendation might help them make the most of these opportunities.The newsletter should be of interest to people who have been on the Graphic Traffic course (which was run in-house last week in Edinburgh and returns to London on 3 June), but it is certainly not a requirement.But it should be equally useful to those who just need a sense of what tools and approaches might be available to help them in their visual marketing.Try before you buyThe first two issues have already been published and are public, so can be viewed in the updates section. Access to future editions are only available to subscribers, although anyway will be able to take advantage of up to a further four free issues via the 30 day free trial.We’ve added another subscription option for teams or consultants/agencies that want to offer subscriptions to partners or clients. For €19 a month the ‘sharer’ option gets you the weekly updates, plus the option of giving full access to three other contacts. They will continue to enjoy their free subscription for as long as the original sharer subscriber maintains their subscription.Subscribe to Graphic Traffic news today.  219 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Survey Shows Drop in Grocery Prices For the first time since spring 2014, Indiana Farm Bureau’s “market basket” survey of grocery store prices has indicated an overall decrease in food prices. Lower retail prices for several foods, including eggs, cheese and beef, were responsible for the decrease.The informal survey shows that the total cost of the 16 items on the survey was $52.61, down 71 cents from the fall survey. Of the items on the survey, seven decreased in price.“This will be welcome news for shoppers, but it’s also good news for farmers – who also have to buy their food in grocery stores,” said INFB 2nd Vice President Isabella Chism, who farms with her family near Kokomo.The item that saw the largest decrease was eggs, which are up slightly from last spring but down sharply – 82 cents per dozen – from the fall survey.“This shows the effect of the HPAI (High Pathogenic Avian Influenza) event last year,” said John Anderson, AFBF’s deputy chief economist with the American Farm Bureau Federation. “Prices soared in the latter half of last year but are working their way back down as increasing production has started to catch up with demand, which has moderated prices somewhat,” he said. Beef is also lower compared to last fall and the first quarter of 2015. Retail beef prices peaked in early 2015 at record high levels.“Since then, a combination of increasing beef production, weaker exports and lower competing meat prices have led to modest price declines,” Anderson said. Prices for dairy products also provided some good news for shoppers. While the price of milk rose slightly from the fall, the fall price was the lowest for milk since 2010, and the price on this survey remains below spring 2015. The price of shredded cheese also dropped significantly.The items showing price decreases from the fall 2015 survey were: eggs, down 82 cents per dozen to $2.26; shredded cheddar cheese, down 69 cents per pound $4.12; bagged salad mix, down 36 cents for a 1-pound bag to $2.06; sirloin tip roast, down 31 cents/pound to $5.56; ground chuck, down 24 cents/pound to $4.32; potatoes, down 2 cents to $2.73 for a 5-pound bag; and boneless chicken breasts, down 1 cent/pound to $3.36.Items that increased were: bacon, up 64 cents to $4.85/pound; apples, up 37 cents to $1.87/pound; milk, up 11 cents/gallon to $2.78; orange juice, up 10 cents for a half-gallon jug to $3.62; cereal, up 20 cents for a 10-ounce box to $3.15; flour, up 13 cents for a 5-pound bag to $2.31; vegetable oil, up 13 cents for a 32-ounce bottle to $2.47; sliced deli ham, up 4 cents/pound to $5.65; and white bread, up 2 cents for a 20-ounce loaf to $1.50.The INFB survey is part of a nationwide survey compiled by the American Farm Bureau Federation from data supplied by state Farm Bureaus. Volunteer shoppers around the country participate in the survey by collecting prices in their local grocery stores. A total of 87 shoppers – 23 from Indiana – in 28 states participated in the latest survey, which was conducted in March. AFBF, the nation’s largest general farm organization, has been conducting the informal quarterly market basket survey of retail food price trends since 1989. The series includes a spring survey, summer cookout survey, fall survey and Thanksgiving survey.According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans spend just under 10 percent of their disposable annual income on food, the lowest average of any country in the world.As retail grocery prices have increased gradually over time, the share of the average food dollar that America’s farm and ranch families receive has dropped.“Through the mid-1970s, farmers received about one-third of consumer retail food expenditures for food eaten at home and away from home, on average. Since then, that figure has decreased steadily and is now about 16 percent, according to the Agriculture Department’s revised Food Dollar Series,” Anderson said. Using the “food at home and away from home” percentage across-the-board, the farmer’s share of this $52.61 market basket would be $8.42.

The decision comes in the backdrop of NLSIU’s recent decision to withdraw from CLAT 2020 and hold a separate entrance examination for admissions to its five year B.A LL.B(Hons) course for the academic year 2020-21.The Consortium has clarified that no other Law University, except the NLSIU, is going to hold its test independently as was “erroneously reported” in the social media. The Consortium has further resolved to shift the Secretariat of the Consortium, presently situated at NLSIU Bangalore, to the NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad. It has been intimated that Professor Faizan Mustafa, Vice-Chancellor of NALSAR and the Senior-most member of the Consortium shall discharge all the administrative and secretarial functions of the Consortium. Professor K. D. Rao, Vice-Chancellor of NLU- Odisha shall discharge the financial functions of the Treasurer of the CLAT Consortium. The Consortium has criticized Professor Krishnaswami’s “unilateral decision” of going ahead with his own independent test and has stated that the same is in derogation of the Bye-laws and the Objectives of the Consortium. ‘It Is Violation of Rules’: NLU Consortium Requests NLSIU To Reconsider It’s Decision To Hold Separate Admission Test It has intimated that a special meetings of the Executive Council and General Body of the Consortium shall be held on Tuesday, 8th September, 2020 to consider the necessary amendments in the Bye-Laws and MoU to address such eventualities. Notably, Professor Krishnaswami had told the Bar and Bench that other NLUs were also concerned over the delay in conducting CLAT 2020. Refuting these claims the Consortium said that Professor Krishnaswami’s statement “was purely his personal opinion.” “No other member University is neither feeling hard pressed in the Consortium nor has any plans of conducting its own independent admission test for 2020,” it said.
