His conduct fell short of the standards we expect.”Burrows avoided paying the full £21.50 fare for his journey by not buying a ticket at his rural home station and then using his Oyster card when he arrived at London Cannon Street station.Paying just £7.20 instead, Southeastern trains calculated that Burrows’ bill amounted to £43,000 over five years before a Revenue Protection Officer stopped him at the station last November.Burrows settled out of court to avoid prosecution.

New rules will lead to short-term pain, long-term gain for banks

first_img U.S. action on climate benefits banks, asset managers: Moody’s G7 tax pledge may be upstaged by CBDC work James Langton High debt levels threaten banks’ strong results: Fitch Related news “Once IFRS 9 rules are implemented, credit costs for banks will be marginally higher and net income marginally lower, assuming that the economy is growing at trend and asset quality is broadly stable,” says Colin Ellis, managing director at Moody’s, in a statement. “During a cyclical downturn, the new rules will make banks increase their reserves and coverage ratio before problem loans peak.” Moody’s reports that its simulations to examine the impact of a recession and slow recovery finds that, “In a downturn, banking metrics would be hit earlier but improve faster, supporting the economic recovery.”center_img Keywords Banking industryCompanies Moody’s Investors Service Although new international accounting standards will initially raise costs and dent net income for banks, the rules will also help banks deal with loan losses amid an economic downturn, according to a new report from Moody’s Investors Service Inc. The credit-rating agency says that the implementation of the new accounting rules will initially reduce banks’ tangible common equity (TCE) ratios by around 50-60 basis points in 2018, but that the rules will ultimately bolster banks’ ability to weather loan losses, as the Moody’s report estimates that banks’ reserves will rise by almost 30% under the new treatment.

Climate disclosure not good enough, global investment pros say

first_img Global insurers’ focus on ESG will impact energy sector: report Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Sustainable world concept 56972931 – sustainable world concept. 3d computer generated image. Maddie Johnson U.S. action on climate benefits banks, asset managers: Moody’s Keywords Sustainable Finance,  Climate change The majority of sustainable investment professionals are unsatisfied with corporate disclosures on climate change, according to a survey from the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA).Globally, 59% of respondents to the Sustainable Investor Poll on TCFD Implementation said they were “very” or “somewhat” dissatisfied with the climate-related disclosure of publicly traded companies. Only 16% said they were “somewhat satisfied,” and not a single respondent said they were “very satisfied.” The negative sentiment was particularly strong in the U.S. (77% “very” or “somewhat” disatisfied) and within service providers and asset managers (67% and 63%, respectively). Almost nine in 10 survey respondents (87%) said they don’t believe markets are consistently and correctly pricing climate risks into company and sector valuations. Disbelief was highest in the U.S. and U.K. (97% and 95%, respectively) and lowest in Japan (77%). Only 2% of respondents expressed any belief at all (6% of Canadians and 4% of Europeans). The overwhelming majority of respondents (92%) agreed the TCFD recommendations are helpful, yet only 34% said they have already incorporated TCFD disclosures into their investment analysis. However, one quarter of respondents (26%) said they plan to incorporate the recommendations into their analysis by the end of next year. An additional 9% plan to do so eventually, but implementation will extend past 2020. Respondents in the U.S., U.K. and Australia were most likely to have already incorporated TCFD disclosures (50%, 47% and 42%, respectively). More than one quarter of respondents (27%) do not plan to include TCFD disclosures into their investment analysis. In contrast, the percentage of survey respondents who were already reporting in line with TCFD recommendations is only 16%. However, stated intentions indicate positive momentum, with 19% saying they plan to do TCFD reporting in 2020 and 28% exploring the possibility.Respondents included 272 investment professionals who practice sustainable investing in Australasia, Canada, Europe, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S.Read the full Sustainable Investor Poll on TCFD Implementation.

Jamaican Community Condemns Negative Programme

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Members of the Jamaican community in the United Kingdom (UK) have condemned a television programme aired on July 5 on the British television channel, ITV, entitled: ‘The Secret Caribbean’.The programme, which was presented by renowned broadcaster, Sir Trevor McDonald, cast Jamaica in a negative light, prompting responses from Jamaican groups in the UK.The Jamaica Diaspora UK said the programme gave a distorted picture of the island , was riddled with inaccuracies, and gave wrong statistics.Advisory Board Member, Celia Grandison Markey said the Jamaican community rejected the idea of Jamaica being used to embody all that is negative about the Caribbean.“The Jamaican community is angry and unhappy at the way their island home continues to be portrayed in the British media. They reject the idea of Jamaica being used to embody all that is negative in the Caribbean, while other islands are used to convey the notion of ‘paradise’. In the future, these unfair and inaccurate depictions will be vigorously challenged,” she said.A release from the organisation said it was sad that the series on the Caribbean continues in the tradition of “facile and patronising”‘ reporting on the islands and peoples of the Caribbean.“Jamaica has produced a religion and a distinctive musical tradition, which has made an extraordinary impact on the world. It boasts sportsmen and women who have maintained a sixty-year tradition of competing and winning at the highest levels in world sport. Its emigrants and their offspring have become outstanding citizens in many countries throughout the world. Its warm people, world-renowned culture and exquisite natural beauty draw three million visitors from around the globe, making it one of the few tourist destinations that grew in 2008,” the release said.Meanwhile, Jamaica’s High Commissioner to the UK, Burchell Whiteman, has supported the defence of the island by the Jamaican community. He said that it is important for the community in the UK to challenge all forms of negative stereotyping and misinformation about Jamaica and Jamaicans.“Jamaica is a vibrant and diverse country. It is a small island and that, like many others across the globe, is facing challenges. However, it is not one-dimensional and there are countless positive and innovative developments taking place on the island. Any programme or report on Jamaica that serves only to highlight what is wrong, does a grave disservice to all Jamaicans, people of Jamaican heritage and friends of Jamaica,” Mr. Whiteman said.

Outdoor dining comes to Cardinia Shire

first_imgOutdoor dining comes to Cardinia Shire The final installation stages of Cardinia Shire’s outdoor dining project are expected to be completed by this weekend.The Parklet Project is a trial project aiming to increase the amount of outdoor dining space available to seated customers on Main Street in Pakenham and Lakeside Boulevard in Pakenham for a ‘COVIDSafe Summer’.The additional ‘pop-up’ outdoor dining areas sit over on-street car parking spaces and are level with adjoining footpaths, effectively creating an additional footpath for tables and chairs.The speed limits on both roads will be reduced from 50km/h to 40km/h.Accessible car parking spaces have not been impacted by the outdoor dining project.Local restaurants, cafes and pubs have been offered Victorian Government funding to help them reopen to alfresco diners.Council sourced and purchased the products, designed the layout and arranged the installation at no cost to local businesses.Cardinia Shire Council Mayor Councillor Brett Owen is excited to see the Parklet Project come to life.“Local businesses have used the funding to purchase new items and equipment such as outdoor furniture, umbrellas, barriers, screens and marquees,” Cr Owen said.“Our local businesses have been encouraged to maximise the use of land within their boundary as well as adjoining footpath areas as a priority.“The use of car spaces may be considered in some instances, but we will always ensure that the safety of all is paramount.”Council is also waiving outdoor dining permit fees for hospitality businesses until 30 June 2021.
