first_img Share ABI warns on bonus payouts whatsapp THE Association of British Insurers (ABI) has warned the UK’s top 350 public firms against offering executive pay deals with unlimited bonuses. An ABI letter sent to all FTSE 350 firms warns that its institutional voting information service (IVIS) would issue a “red top” alert on uncapped pay deals where there was no proof of exceptional circumstances. Shareholders have become increasingly alarmed by new contracts, which appear to have no limit on bonuses, the ABI said.

first_img Yorkshire and Clydesdale Banks are on track to deliver £10bn of new lending to business and mortgage customers by October, its owner said today.Trading in the three months to the end of December was “sound and resilient” although “subdued demand for credit and low interest rates continue to restrict balance sheet and income growth”, it said in a statement.The lengthening economic recovery has also affected customers’ ability to pay back loans, causing a slight decline in its ratio of impaired assets to total lending, National Australia Bank group said.“Against a background of continued economic uncertainty, our UK business continues to demonstrate its resilience and our prudent strategic direction is unchanged,” said chief executive Lynne Peacock.NAB warned that the outlook remained weak as public spending cuts and Eurozone uncertainty put a drag on the recovery. In its first-quarter trading update, NAB said it made cash earnings of A$1.3 billion (£817m), an 18 per cent rise on the same period a year earlier.

first_img KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ NOKIA CEO Stephen Elop yesterday dismissed insinuations that his loyalties were still with his former employer, Microsoft, because he owned shares in the software company and did not hold any Nokia stock.“I am not a Trojan horse,” Stephen Elop said ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The decision to partner with Microsoft was made by the entire board of directors, he said.On Friday, Nokia announced it was teaming up with Microsoft in what is seen as a last-ditch attempt to catch up with Google and Apple in the fast-growing smartphone market.Asked if he still held shares in Microsoft, Elop said: “As an executive [at Microsoft], I have accumulated a substantive number of shares,” adding that he was legally prohibited to sell his shares for a certain time period after his departure but had since begun to divest his holdings.However, once negotiations had begun with Microsoft he was once again not allowed to sell due to insider trading laws.“I will get rid of them as soon as I am allowed,” Elop said, noting he was legally prohibited from buying Nokia shares for the time being, but would do so as soon as he could to demonstrate his confidence in the Finnish company.Elop was drafted in from Microsoft in September to halt Nokia’s decline. As president of Microsoft’s Business Division and a member of its team responsible for overall strategy, he was hired for his software know-how.The 47-year-old Canadian became the first non-Finn to head Nokia in its 145-year history, a sign of how Nokia seeks to transform itself to claim back market share and the innovative edge it has lost to Apple and other rivals.

Following a special meeting of the Privy Council at 5.15pm yesterday, the chancellor acted to freeze the assets of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and five members of his family, including the second eldest son and heir apparent Saif. Although the true value of the family’s UK assets is not known, some estimates put their total British fortune at over £10bn. Osborne said: “I have today taken action to freeze the assets in the UK of Colonel Gaddafi and his family or those acting on their behalf so that they cannot be used against the interests of the Libyan people.”Meanwhile, the government signed an order prohibiting the export of uncirculated Libyan banknotes without a licence, after officials thwarted a brazen plot to shift £900m worth of Libyan cash outside of the UK. The chancellor became aware of the attempt to move the banknotes last week, but was advised by officials that it would take several days to secure an Export Control Order. According to one official, the chancellor then played a protracted game of “cat and mouse” with the Libyan regime, which saw officials adopt a range of stalling tactics to prevent the cash leaving UK shores. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Tags: NULL IN a radical shake-up of the basic state pension system, pensioners are set to receive a flat-rate of £140 a week, the government is set to reveal today. The pension reforms, to be unveiled by work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith, are aimed at simplying the current complex system made up of a basic state pension, based on years of national insurance contributions, and a range of secondary “top-ups”, including pension credits. A range of top-ups added to the basic £96 weekly state pension are supposed to guarantee a minimum income of £132.60 for a single person, but many people miss out due to confusion over their entitlements.Duncan-Smith says the “single-tier” retirement payment would remove confusion for those approaching retirement, as well as help to reduce inequity. Women often lose out on a full state pension because they take time out from the workplace to raise children. Last month, DWP figures suggested that this leaves women an average of £2,000 a year worse off than men. The Coalition has already made changes to the rules on private retirement savings, abolishing the default retirement age and introducing automatic enrolment for private pensions.

first_img whatsapp G7 tries to put brakes on yen Thursday 17 March 2011 9:39 pm MAJOR central banks agreed to co-ordinate action to drive the yen lower last night in a desperate bid to stem the yen’s rapid rise.The extraordinary move comes after the yen surged to a record 76.25 against the dollar – fuelling fears that Japan’s economy, already crippled by last week’s earthquake and tsunami, would suffer further as its goods became less competitive.“Given yen moves after the tragic events that hit Japan, the United States, Britain, Canada and the European Central Bank have agreed with Japan to jointly intervene in the currency market,” finance minister Yoshihiko Noda said following an emergency meeting of the Group of Seven (G7) nations.Japanese authorities will buy US dollar/yen in the market today. Other central banks will act when their markets open, Noda said. But he declined to comment on the size of Tokyo’s intervention.The US dollar spiked immediately after the annoucement, rising about two yen to above 81 yen immediately after the announcement which came as markets opened. And Japanese stocks were also boosted – with the Nikkei jumping three per cent in the first hour of trading. “This is not just one central bank, this is seven. It’s a brave man to be on the other side of that trade,” said Rochford Capital managing director Thomas Averill. Tokyo last intervened in the currency market on 15 September last year, when it sold 2.13 trillion yen, a record amount for a single day.
