GE looks to move in on UK bank sector

first_img GE looks to move in on UK bank sector KCS-content US CONGLOMERATE General Electric (GE) is planning to launch an internet bank in the UK.The financial arm of the firm, GE Capital, has already set up an internet bank in Germany, titled GE Direkt, and is hoping to join the ranks of the newcomers on the UK banking scene within 18 months.US-backed Metro Bank opened its first branch in the UK last month and Lloyd’s of London chairman Lord Levene and City grandee Sir David Walker are to front another new High Street venture.But GE’s plans, tentatively dubbed GE Direct, will be the first online bank launched in the UK since the financial crisis.The Financial Services Authority (FSA) tightened the rules regulating internet banks two years ago, following the collapse of Icelandic internet banks such as Icesave, which had 300,000 customers in the UK with deposits of over £4bn. The incident led to a diplomatic crisis between Britain, Holland and Iceland over attempts to reclaim deposited funds.GE is thought to be looking at the possibility of rolling out similar operations across Europe as GE Capital looks to diversify its funding base.The firm specialises in factoring, paying companies up front for contracts that will pay out over time, such as a recent deal which will see Jaguar Land Rover receive £170m through this structure. GE Capital utilised the AAA credit rating of its parent company to borrow money at very low interest rates, but the financial crisis saw GE’s credit rating slip and factoring became a more expensive method of revenue for the division.GE was unavailable for comment last night.

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for April 26, 2018

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for April 26, 2018 By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 26, 2018 Remaining dry today with sunshine again in control. Good drying with moderate evaporation around .2” of per day.A cold front remains on track to cross Indiana tomorrow afternoon and evening. Moisture still looks to hit mostly northern areas. From I-70 northward, we can see a few hundredths to .2”, but we are increasing our coverage to near 70%. The best rain potential comes after sunset up to midnight and will be closer to the Michigan line. South of I-70, we see nothing.Dry weather sets up for the weekend and the first half of next week. Cooler air comes in behind the front tomorrow, so there will be a chilly start to Saturday, but we should see temps quickly rebound. Our next strong front has held together, while being delayed, and looks to bring rain mostly on Thursday. Some scattered showers may try and get into NW and far western Indiana on Wednesday afternoon, but the timing of the true frontal passage is not until the overnight through Thursday. Rain totals remain at .25”-1” with coverage at 80% of the state. We think the chance of getting rain to hold off all the way to Friday is limited at this time. The map above is a snapshot of action on Thursday morning. Still, that allows for a nice dry window for 4 and a half to nearly 5 days, depending on where you are at in the north…and nearly 7 days in southern Indiana.The extended forecast period features minor chances of precipitation. We still have a weak front bringing up to .25” around the 7th, and another system can pop up around the 9th, before a stronger front closer to the 12th.Temps will warm to normal and slightly above normal levels next week in early May as the dry weather unfolds.

first_img Another Voix de Djibouti reporter arrested in Djibouti City February 13, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities urged to drop libel prosecution against opposition weekly Organisation RSF_en Follow the news on Djibouti DjiboutiAfrica News December 9, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts “This is an operation aimed at silencing the only small newspaper that still resists,” Daher Ahmed Farah told Reporters Without Borders. “With Le Renouveau reduced to silence, the gagging of press freedom and free speech is complete, after 30 years of absolute rule, suppression of the opposition, poverty and social tension – all this under the eyes of western democracies such as France and the United States, which have a military presence in Djibouti.” DjiboutiAfrica Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today called on the authorities to abandon a libel prosecution against the opposition weekly Le Renouveau after a court ruled on 11 February that the prosecution case was incomplete.Journalist Houssein Ahmed Farah, the brother of Le Renouveau managing editor Daher Ahmed Farah, was released provisionally on 10 February after three days in detention and appeared in court the next day on the charge of libelling the national bank governor, President Ismaël Omar Guelleh’s brother-in-law, in an editorial.The judge ordered an adjournment until 18 February after discovering that the prosecution case file contained no copy of the issue with the offending editorial.It is unclear on what legal grounds Houssein Ahmed Farah is being prosecuted instead of his brother, who is currently out of the country. Daher Ahmed Farah, who also heads the opposition Movement for Democratic Renewal (MRD), told Reporters Without Borders his brother did not write the editorial. “It was an article without a byline, and in such a case it is the managing editor, myself, who assumes responsibility.”The printing material which the police took from the newspaper has not yet been returned. As a result, the newspaper is still unable to appear.———–08.02.2007 – Weekly editor’s brother kept in custody, but three others releasedAfter spending 24 hours in police custody, journalist Houssein Ahmed Farah was taken today before the state prosecutor, who ordered that he remain in detention. He is the brother of Daher Ahmed Farah, the managing editor of the privately-owned weekly Le Renouveau, which did not appear today as the police have seized its printing material.Hared Abdallah Barreh, who is in charge of distributing the newspaper and who is a member of Daher Ahmed Farah’s opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Renewal (MRD), and Farah Abadid Hildid, the president of one of the party’s federations, were released during the day yesterday, while Daoud Farah Iyeh, one of Daher Ahmed Farah’s cousins, was freed last night.————–07.02.2007 – Police arrest brother and cousin of opposition weekly’s managing editorAfter being sought by police for five days, Houssein Ahmed Farah was arrested today and taken to the criminal investigation department, Reporters Without Borders has learned from his brother, Daher Ahmed Farah, managing editor of the privately-owned weekly Le Renouveau and head of the Movement for Democratic Renewal (MRD), an opposition party.

The newspaper is the mouthpiece of one of Djibouti’s main opposition parties, the Movement for Democratic Renewal (MRD).“After three years of relative peace, Le Renouveau is again the target of government hostility,” the press freedom organisation said. “Rather than setting the police and judicial authorities on one of Djibouti’s few dissident publications, the authorities should realise that it is archaic to try to control news and information.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Those who work for Le Renouveau and Farah’s family and associates must be left in peace as they are being hounded over an article of which the sole shortcoming was to have irked the regime.”The police raided Farah’s home without a warrant on 2 February claiming they were looking for Farah’s brother. Farah is currently out of the country. The next day, the police arrested Hared Abdallah Barreh, an MRD member who is in charge of distributing the newspaper, and Farah Abadid Hildid, who heads one of the party’s federations.The two men are currently being held at the headquarters of the police criminal investigation department. MRD vice-president Souleiman Farah Lodon and MRD secretary-general Souleiman Hassan Fadal were meanwhile interrogated successively by the state prosecutor and the police, and then released. The police raided Farah’s home again on 4 February and seized a computer.The police raids and arrests have been carried out as part of a judicial investigation into an article published by Le Renouveau on 1 February. Headlined “Omar Aïdid incurs the wrath of the authorities,” it was about the arrest of a businessman involved in a dispute with the national bank president, who is President Ismaël Omar Guelleh’s brother-in-law.The Guelleh regime has had Farah in its sights for more than a decade. He was arrested four times in 2003, spending a total of 90 days in prison. His brother Houssein spent nine days in prison in June 2004 for allegedly endangering the First Lady’s life when he braked sharply in his car to avoid her passing motorcade. He was covering a street demonstration at the time. News One of his cousins, Daoud Farah Iyeh, was arrested yesterday for unknown reasons, the same source said.

Recently, a report by Markets Insider revealed the growing virus has caused mortgage rates to continue their downward slide. The report found the average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage hit 3.34%.The yield on the 30-year US Treasury bond was still at 1.8%, a record low, while the 10-year yield fell to 1.37%, its lowest since 2012.Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale said that there is limited knowledge on the Coronavirus, as well as its “human and economic impacts.”“There have been periods when it seemed that the virus might be relatively contained as with the SARS outbreak many years ago,” Hale said. “New information suggests that COVID-19 may be more easily spread and thus will have more wide-spread impacts. But we are still learning, and as we learn more, markets will adjust to price-in this new information.”Additionally, according to Freddie Mac, the single-family serious delinquency rate fell 3 basis points to 60 in January. Freddie Mac’s maximum exposure to Fannie Mae-issued collateral included in Freddie Mac-issued resecuritizations was $30.4 billion.Delinquency on mortgage loans through Freddie Mac consistently fell through 2019. The delinquency rate for mortgage loans was at 0.86% in January 2019 and ended the year at 0.79%.Black Knight’s January 2020 look at mortgage data found the national delinquency rate fell to 3.22%. Delinquencies fell more than 5% month-to-month in January and are down 14.17% over the year.While loan delinquencies are on a downward trend, foreclosure starts rose in January by 8.35%. However, they are 14.74% down on an annual basis.The foreclosure rate charted a barely perceptible increase of just 0.41% over the month of January as 1,000 properties slipped into foreclosure.
