Think Finance Hires Craig A. Nies As Chief Analytics Officer31/8/2013

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.

We are thrilled to welcome Craig to the company. Prior to joining Think Finance, Mr. Nies served as Vice President and Global Head of Software Development at Opera Solutions, where he engineered a Big Data analytics platform that streamlined the development and deployment of predictive analytics and machine learning across a variety of domains.

Compton's first Latino lawmaker finally submits finance forms31/8/2013

<b>Document:</b> Isaac Galvan campaign filings 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. In a separate case, he was convicted on two misdemeanor counts of sending out misleading campaign fliers. Compton's Latino residents have been trying for decades to get a Latino candidate elected to city office. So it was a joyous moment for some when Galvan won a seat on Compton's City Council in June.

German finance minister: 'I don't see' any further eurozone bailouts

We don't want a German Europe but we want a strong Europe and that means every member state including Germany has to increase its competitiveness," Schaeuble said. "A stronger Europe means that everyone has to do its duty and not to ask for more money by others -- that's the wrong way to get a strong Europe, that's the wrong incentive." German FM: Greece needs until 2022 German FM: Eurozone in a better place His comments come ahead of the September 22 election, as Merkel faces a German electorate weary of Europe's largest economy helping to bail out troubled eurozone nations, whose debt woes have threatened the stability of the currency. Greek unemployment hits record 27.6% Greece, along with three other eurozone countries -- Portugal, Ireland and Cyprus -- remain dependent on rescue loans from the EU and International Monetary Fund (IMF). The 17-nation eurozone has emerged from its longest ever recession, growing 0.3% in the second quarter after 18 months of contraction. Unemployment rates remain high, but worries that the debt crisis could spread to larger economies such as Spain and Italy -- which both saw borrowing costs climb dangerously high last year -- have abated.

Finance Department says it will fix credit-union tax error revealed by auditors28/8/2013

Emirates Mulls Sukuk for $4.5 Billion in Planes: Islamic Finance

With an apparent fix of the technical error on the way, the real issue for credit unions is the original tax hike, said Rogers. "The federal budget introduced a tax change that was a total surprise, and we were blindsided by that," he said, estimating the measure would cost credit unions $28 million annually. Credit unions and caisses populaires consider themselves small businesses, with higher operating costs because they can't achieve the same economies of scale as the larger financial institutions. "We hope to convince (the government) that the words in the budget document that said this tax increase on credit unions would restore neutrality and fairness probably doesn't achieve that goal," he said.

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 9% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable.

The Indian unit, which had hit a new lifetime intraday low of 65.56 Thursday, was boosted Friday by comments by Chidambaram and the Reserve Bank of India. Chidambaram said the currency panic was unwarranted and the rupee had overshot its appropriate level. He added there was no plan to impose more capital controls on top of ones announced this month, and that reviving growth, which hit a decade low of five percent last year, would be the governments focus. The central bank governor Duvvuri Subbarao, meanwhile, dismissed investor fears India is hurtling towards a balance of payments crisis similar to one in 1991. Ten-year government bonds also posted their biggest weekly gain in four-and-a-half-years, of 62 paise ($0.01) to 8.26 percent, while shares rebounded by 1.13 percent to 18,519.44 points.

German finance minister sees signs ECB will raise rates

"Low rates are above all an expression of insecurity on debt markets. That cannot last forever - even if it is a relief to the federal budget," he said. "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.

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.

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.

"The Cabinet Committee on Investment will then take up these projects to ensure expeditious clearances." The government is hoping the move will spur credit growth while checking the rising tide of bad loans in the banking sector. "Some projects have been cleared in the last two months and there has been a spurt in credit growth as well. We believe that once these projects get on track, the NPAs (non-performing assets) will also come down accordingly," the official said. Bank credit grew 16.6% in August compared with the growth in the same month last year, according to Reserve Bank of India data.

Finance is the Biggest Sector Once Again - Real Time Insight

Less than a week before Denmarks Social Democrat-led government unveils its 2014 budget proposal, Finance Minister Bjarne Corydon said the AAA rated nations supply of bonds is unlikely to change. Were trying to plan funding for public projects as rationally as possible, Corydon said yesterday in an interview. But you shouldnt expect any major new policy changes on government bond issuance. The government of Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt in May said it plans 139 billion kroner ($25 billion) this year in krone-denominated borrowing, with a total requirement of 164 billion kroner. Since then, the yield on Denmarks benchmark 10-year debt has risen to 2.09 percent from as low as 1.49 percent in May as a recovery in the euro zone weakens demand for haven assets.

RBI allows non-bank Islamic finance firm

"The event reflects a significant and welcome change in RBI's attitude towards sharia-based NBFCs and sets a precedent for others to follow suit." However, many analysts think that unless and until full-fledged Islamic banks are permitted in India, an Islamic finance sector will find it hard to develop. "I don't think there is going to be a rush for NBFC applications. RBI's attitude towards the sharia-compliance concept is yet to be tested," said Shariq Nisar, director of research and operations at Mumbai-based Taqwaa Advisory and Shariah Investment Solutions. Running a sharia-compliant financial institution under Indian regulations is still difficult and other firms are likely to stay on the sidelines pending the success of existing schemes before deciding to join in, he added.

but I digress.) Mr. Mian also points out in his article that the Finance sector has reclaimed its leadership role in the S&P 500, as it now contributes a higher percentage of earnings than any other sector for the first time since the financial crisis. Finance is expected to account for 19.2% of total S&P 500 earnings in 2013 compared to Technology's 18%. So does the lack of earnings growth outside of Finance concern you?
