Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 novembre 2019

Barclays today announces the launch of a new Sustainable and Impact Banking group, led by Brian Reilly, Global Head of Sustainable and Impact Banking. The newly created group will focus on identifying new, high-growth clients that are solving global environmental and social challenges, and advising existing Banking clients on sustainable growth strategy and finance.
By working in partnership with existing coverage teams at Barclays to both support and lead client relationships, the Sustainable and Impact Banking group will identify and cover new companies, most of them emerging growth companies, focused on sustainability or social impact, and will advise such companies on financing and strategic opportunities. The group will also work with environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) investors, building unique insights into this rapidly growing investor base in order to advise both existing and new clients of Barclays on ESG metrics and positioning.
The new group will build on Barclays’ existing credentials in sustainable banking, having advised on equity offerings and private placements for corporations operating across the ESG space; sustainability-linked credit facilities – including the first ever in the US; and more than $57 billion of green, sustainable or social bonds for clients since January 2018, including the first ever from a UK bank.The Sustainable and Impact Banking group will incorporate the Social Impact Banking initiative, launched in early 2018 under the leadership of Jed Lynch in the Americas and May Jaramillo in EME. The team will also partner closely with Debt Capital Markets, specifically Susan Barron, Global Head of Green and Sustainable DCM, and with the Private Capital Markets team, headed globally by Angus Whelchel. Reflecting the importance of sustainability at Barclays across the entire firm, the Sustainable and Impact Banking team will work with the Sustainability & ESG team to coordinate and contribute to Barclays’ sustainability and climate change strategy, and will leverage the team’s intelligence in global ESG matters.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 28 agosto 2018

Barclays has been named on Fortune Magazine’s 2018 Change the World List. The list recognizes companies that have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy. Barclays is one of only four banks on the list and appears for the first time this year.“I couldn’t be prouder of Barclays’ inclusion in this year’s Change the World list, and of the recognition of the success of our programmes,” commented Stephen Doherty, Group Head of Corporate Relations at Barclays. “Citizenship is part of the way we do business at Barclays – by helping our clients, customers and communities make a positive social impact.” Barclays, which operates in more than 40 countries, is dedicated to helping individuals find work through global initiatives such as Barclays LifeSkills and Barclays’ Connect with Work. Barclays also helps entrepreneurs to scale up and grow through its global initiatives such as Unreasonable Impact. These initiatives demonstrate the innovative approach Barclays takes to making a difference in the ongoing evolution of work.Barclays’ largely web- and app-based LifeSkills program helps people develop basic skills such as listening, problem solving, and interview techniques. Connect with Work, launched in 2016, goes a step further by matching job candidates with motivation but little or no experience to employers who will take a chance on them. The two programs have been very successful; more than 2.1 million people used either LifeSkills or Connect with Work in 2017. In the Asia Pacific region, Connect with Work helped secure jobs for more than 60,000 young engineers and recent university graduates. Unreasonable Impact supports high-growth entrepreneurs who are tackling some of the world’s most pressing societal challenges and creating the jobs of the future.

How to Trade CFDs on the Falling Share Price of Clinton Cards

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 Maggio 2012

London, (PRNewswire) As Clinton Cards is forced into administration, you could profit from its falling share price by trading CFDs with City Index. On the morning of Wednesday 9 May, Clinton Cards said it was likely to enter into administration later in the day, leading to shares in the embattled retailer being suspended from trading. The firm’s share price has fallen nearly 90% over the past two and a half years, and when its banks – Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) – sold its £35 million worth of loans to its biggest supplier American Greetings yesterday, only for them to call them in soon after; the end seemed nigh.Joshua Raymond, Chief Market Analyst at City Index, commented: “The swift deal and immediate calling in of the loans will inevitably leave a rather sour taste not just in the mouths of its shareholders, but in the UK retail sector in general with some eyebrows raised in the City.”
Today more and more individual traders are discovering the benefits of derivatives, and many of them are discovering them through a City Index trading platform.As a group, they transact in excess of 1.5 million trades every month in over 50 countries whilst providing access to a wide range of instruments including margined foreign exchange, CFDs and, in the UK, financial spread betting. CFD trading is exempt from UK stamp duty. However, tax laws are subject to change and depend on individual circumstances. Please seek independent advice if necessary.

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 4 gennaio 2012

English: US President Barack Obama and British...

Image via Wikipedia

London. Both the FTSE 100 and Dow were expected to make modest gains by the end of 2012, according to a survey of 100 senior representatives of investment firms. The Euro was expected to deteriorate further compared to sterling, while the US dollar would increase in value. However, the majority interviewed thought that President Obama’s government had not done enough to stimulate the economy in the US. In respect of improving business and the economy in the UK, there were calls for tax cuts both for individuals and for businesses together with the elimination of stamp duty on share purchases. A number of respondents also demanded that the government did more to simplify rules for pensions, stopped changing pension rules and improved the level of understanding of investments, particularly those which were more tax efficient, e.g. ISA’s. Those interviewed were asked to predict the best FTSE companies for capital growth in 2012. Vodafone was the most popular choice in the FTSE 100, followed closely by Barclays and BT. Balfour Beatty and Centamin Egypt featured well from selections from the FTSE 250. A wide selection of funds were also selected. These included iShares FTSE 100 and Liontrust UK for capital growth and the Artemis and MG Optimal for income.
