The market value of the interests in the PLS Trust will likely decline by an amount which far exceeds the face amount of the loans seized. This injury may well be uncompensable through post-seizure compensation proceedings. -- Each PLS Trust which holds to-be-seized loans will, at a minimum, lose the value of those loans - which the seizure program, by its nature and structure, seriously undervalues as part of its very premise. The consequences will fall upon public and private pension plans, retirement accounts, college savings accounts, hospital and university endowments, and other funds, and ultimately will damage the ordinary Americans who are the beneficiaries of such accounts.

Finance Ministry warns wilful defaulter again, asks banks to nail them

At today's meeting, I have also communicated that message which I think is very important that absolutely no consideration will be shown to wilful defaulters," Financial Services Secretary Rajiv Takru told reporters after a meeting with top bankers here this evening. He said banks have been advised to cut down their net non-performing assets (NPAs) and so wilful defaulters must be dealt as firmly, correctly and expeditiously as possible. Takru had earlier this month gave a stern warning to wilful defaulters and told them that they should be prepared to cede management control of their companies as they are putting public's money at stake. As of June quarter, total restructured assets of banks crossed Rs 4 lakh crore, and the major contributor are the state-run banks. In FY'13, banks restructured Rs 75,000 crore loans under the corporate debt restructuring (CDR) mechanism, which was nearly double the level in the previous fiscal.

Finance Minister directs commercial banks to increase interest for depositors

The minister said the move was to curb the current mismatch of rates banks charged borrowers and interest offered to depositors. Speaking in Choma yesterday at the official opening of an Investrust branch, Mr Chikwanda described the mismatch as a disincentive to would be depositors adding that it militated against the expansion of banking services. He said banks played an important role in national development by being institutional mechanisms for mobilisation of capital and channeling capital enterprises. In this process the terms, which is the interest rates at which the money is dispensed cannot be a matter of indifference because the cost of money determines various other costs in the economy.

Corporate finance leaders should empower end users through technology

Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock markets total return. Fast forward to 5/31/2012 and each share was worth $77.79 on that date, a loss of $0.48 or 0.6% decrease over twelve years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 11% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable.

Compton's first Latino lawmaker finally submits finance forms

Euroloan Consumer Finance PLC in 28 million EUR deal

(Bob Chamberlin / Los Angeles Times / July 2, 2013) Also By Angel Jennings and Abby Sewell August 27, 2013, 7:28 p.m. Compton City Councilman Isaac Galvan belatedly filed mandatory campaign finance forms after state officials threatened to open a formal investigation when he missed several deadlines. The financial statements, which were submitted Thursday, show that Galvan spent $29,000 on his race to become Compton's first Latino elected official. Galvan also reported that he raised only half as much as he spent. Most of his donations came from people outside of Compton in neighboring southeast communities. According to the documents, Galvan has outstanding debts totaling $15,500, most of which was attributed to printing campaign fliers. The 26-year-old reported that he owes Angel Gonzalez, his former campaign manager, almost $12,000. Galvan hired Gonzalez as his community liaison when he won the election. Gonzalez was subsequently fired by Compton's city manager after The Times published a story that revealed Gonzalez's criminal history. In 2002, Gonzalez was convicted of a felony conspiracy charge reduced to a misdemeanor at his sentencing for sending out attack mailers with copies of fake official documents.

"Capital inflows will, in due course, correct the position." India has been caught up in an emerging markets sell-off , triggered by talk of tighter U.S. monetary policy . But the slide has been exacerbated by local factors, including a large current account deficit , which reflects the nation's tendency to import more than it exports and leaves it reliant on foreign capital. Chidambaram vowed to shrink India's current account deficit this fiscal year, bringing it down to $70 billion from $88 billion in 2012-2013.

Finance director gets 38 months in prison in corruption case that derailed Donovan campaign

The judge, if she wanted to be extra harsh, she should have sentenced me to work on another congressional campaign. Braddock took pride in saying he refused an FBI invitation to wear a wire and try to collect evidence against others in the Donovan campaign. He called Nassi, whom he says cooperated with the authorities, a rat. I have certain convictions, Braddock said. Probably the prosecution would disagree with this, I still have my integrity. Riccio said Braddock would decide within the week if he would appeal his conviction or sentence. As Riccio spoke to reporters, Braddock was sending a text message to his family in Florida, telling them of his sentence. A jury of nine men and three women convicted Braddock on conspiracy and election-law violations related to the scheme by the owners of roll-your-own cigarette stores to keep their business exempt from the states steep tax on manufactured cigarettes.

The announcement came after Finance Minister Guido Mantega met earlier in the day with the heads of top banks including Banco do Brasil Banco Bradesco, Itau Unibanco, BTG Pactual and others. President Dilma Rousseff's government is placing big hopes on the multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects as a way to jump-start an economy that has been stuck in a rut for the last three years. However, many businessmen warn that the low rate of returns offered, coupled with concern over government interference and scarce global liquidity, is making those road, railway, ports and airport projects less attractive. The government has already increased the rate of return for several projects and improved financing terms via public banks. Mantega in the past has been critical of private-sector banks for not lowering their lending rates at a faster pace as the economy struggles to recover.

Islamic finance body IILM sells debut $490 million sukuk

Its debut issue was fully subscribed, the IILM said in a statement on Monday. Islamic finance, which obeys religious principles such as a ban on interest payments, has grown rapidly since the global financial crisis and is now estimated to have well over $1 trillion of assets around the world. But its expansion has been limited by a shortage of highly liquid, investment-grade financial instruments which Islamic banks can trade to manage their short-term funding needs. The IILM, founded by the central banks in 2010, aims to address that weakness by issuing sukuk which banks can trade across borders.

Global Finance ranks National Bank of Abu Dhabi 35th in the world

Some banking market instability seems to be moving from the West to certain countries in the East, and companies are keeping a close eye on the solidity and reliability of their counterparties worldwide. In Global Finances Safest Banks ranking, the number of emerging markets banks in the top 50 is slowly growing. The number of triple-A banks has not changed and it is pretty limited, as many countries have lost their top sovereign rating and no new ones have reached that level yet, says Global Finance publisher Joseph D. Giarraputo.

Over the past year, we have been expanding SOLONs business development team and pipeline of projects on a national scale, said Jared Schoch, vice president and general manager of SOLON Corporation. As we continue to build our business, it is vital that we expand our relationships with suppliers and investors. John and Jeff are proven veterans that match our values and have the ability to execute against our goals and elevate our business to the next level. Before joining SOLON, Kintz was a director of project finance at SunPower Corporation, where he negotiated, arranged and closed over 400 megawatts (MW) of solar transactions in North America. Prior to SunPower, Kintz was vice president of portfolio trading & acquisitions at Bank of America, responsible for acquisitions, sales, and restructurings of tax-oriented asset-backed leases and loans. Calabro was senior director of procurement and asset management at PsomasFMG prior to SOLON.

There is a clear synergy between EDAIF and micro finance. A lot of micro finance institutions have sprung up lately, and I would like us to look at how we can support them with EDAIF funds -- considering that micro finance institutions provide lending support to SMEs, he said. The call comes at a time government has begun processes to finalise the review of the law establishing EDAIF to broaden the scope and mandate of the Fund. The Private Enterprise Foundation, led by its President, Nana Osei Bonsu, also shares in the Finance Ministers advocacy to include micro finance companies in the institutional support framework of EDAIF since they support activities of businesses that make up a big chunk of economic activities in the country. Established in 2000 by an Act of Parliament as the Export Development and Investment Fund, the law was amended in 2011 to expand the scope of application for the Funds resources to include the development and promotion of agriculture related to the agro-processing industry.

German finance minister: future aid to Greece will be much smaller than existing bailout deals

Will Englund Police operations against migrants form a backdrop for the campaigns of the top two candidates. Schaeuble was quoted as telling Germanys Handelsblatt daily that the prospect of further aid is being held out on condition that Greece fulfills its obligations and in the expectation that this will be about far smaller sums than to date, because Greece will then already have a primary surplus. He said he cant name any specific figures or measures and that decisions will have to be made next year, but again rejected the idea of a second debt writedown for Greece following a massive debt restructuring deal agreed with private sector bondholders last year. Asked where the money for a further Greek aid package would come from, Schaeuble said that hasnt been decided but noted that the eurozones rescue fund, the European Stability Mechanism, is far from exhausted. Germanys opposition has seized on Schaeubles comments about Greece to attack the governments credibility ahead of Sept. 22 elections.

German finance minister sees signs ECB will raise rates

"The central bank has announced it will raise rates again when the economy improves. That is good." ECB chief Mario Draghi actually said after the last meeting on rates on August 1 that rates will remain low for some time. The ECB has based this 'forward guidance' on the inflation outlook remaining subdued, and growth weak. "The Governing Council confirms that it expects the key ECB rates to remain at present or lower levels for an extended period of time," Draghi said after the ECB's August 1 meeting.

Morocco names new interim finance minister

A wealthy Moroccan businessman was named interim finance minister on Friday, as the ruling Islamist party pursues efforts to form a new coalition government after its main ally quit.AFP/File RABAT (AFP) A wealthy Moroccan businessman was named interim finance minister on Friday, as the ruling Islamist party pursues efforts to form a new coalition government after its main ally quit. Aziz Akhennouch, a technocrat in his 50s who headed the ministry of agriculture and fisheries in the two previous governments, was appointed to the key cabinet post, the official MAP news agency reported. He replaces Nizar Baraka, whose Istiqlal party withdrew from the ruling coalition in July after strongly criticising the Islamist Party of Justice and Development (PJD) for failing to shore up the economy and solve pressing social problems. Morocco's government has been hamstrung since May when Istiqlal first announced its intention to withdraw from the PJD-led coalition, which won the largest share of votes in parliamentary elections two years ago. Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane has been negotiating in recent weeks with the National Rally of Independents party, to which Akhennouch formerly belonged, to form a new cabinet and avoid early elections.

Wharton-Habitat Housing Finance Course at Asia-Pacific Housing Forum

Schaeuble said it was nonsense to assert that he was hiding anything. I dont want it said of me after the election, independently of how it goes and what I personally do afterward, that I didnt tell the truth before the election, he was quoted as saying. So I am glad that the public has now paid close attention to what I have been saying again and again for a long time ... we will have to concern ourselves in the middle of next year with new measures for Greece. A new IMF working paper offered a different explanation of why the lending agency erred in underestimating the impact of austerity measures on Greeces economy. In June, the IMF said it had miscalculated the effect that cutting government spending would have on the Greek economy and that this had worsened the countrys deep recession, now in its sixth year.
