EP wants data protection guaranteed before allowing fingerprint exchange with UK

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 18 maggio 2020

MEPs rejected the Council draft implementing decision on the exchange of fingerprints with the UK with 329 votes for, 357 against, and 4 abstentions. MEPs urge the Council not to take any decision on the topic until the UK gives guarantees on full reciprocity and data protection and to wait until the new legal framework for the new partnership cooperation with the UK has been concluded.
The launch of the fingerprint exchange between the United Kingdom and EU member states, bound by the Prüm decision, would allow the responsible national authorities to share fingerprint data to prevent and investigate crimes.This decision on the fingerprint data exchange would be limited to the transition period ending on 31 December. MEPs say however that, since it is not clear if the UK will meet EU data protection standards after this date, such a decision could pose a serious risk to the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of EU citizens after the transition period.
Furthermore, MEPs think that the reciprocity of the data exchange should be guaranteed before any decision on the matter is taken. As stated in the Council draft implementing decision, the UK does not intend to make fingerprint data from suspects’ profiles available, in contrast with other member states participating in the Prüm system.Decisions on automated exchange of fingerprint data in the EU are enabled by the Prüm framework. It lays down provisions under which EU member states grant each other access to their automated DNA analysis files, automated fingerprint identification systems and vehicle registration data.
The Parliament has a consultative role in the decision.

Exchange Traded Concepts Launches Uranium Mining ETF

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 8 dicembre 2019

Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC, (“ETC”), a leader in providing white label Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) solutions, in conjunction with North Shore Indices, Inc., today announced that it has launched the North Shore Global Uranium Mining ETF (NYSE ARCA: URNM).
URNM is a targeted play on the uranium mining sector, that offers efficient access to a global, basket of companies in the Uranium industry. This fund offers a thematic play on potential nuclear power demand growth and uranium supply deficits. The ETF tracks the The North Shore Global Uranium Mining Index which is a focused uranium mining index. The index holds both miners and holders of physical uranium. It is currently tilted towards junior miners.Uranium as a commodity has long been misunderstood due to the complexity and opacity of the nuclear fuel cycle. After experiencing a peak price of nearly $140/lb. in 2007, prices have declined by over 80%, mainly due to oversupply. According to Numerco, as of 12/2/2019 the spot price of physical uranium was approximately $26/lb.
Focused on companies with exposure to the uranium sector, this newly created Global Uranium Mining ETF should allow investors to benefit from potentially favorable uranium fundamentals. As the world’s thirst for clean, 24×7, emissions-free sources of alternative energy continue to grow, nuclear power is emerging as a potential means to meet this demand. According to the World Nuclear Association’s most recent Nuclear Fuel Report there are 444 operating nuclear reactors, with 54 under construction, 111 planned, and 349 proposed.

CPUcoin Launches IEO on Probit Exchange to Accelerate CPU/GPU Power Sharing Economy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 agosto 2019

SEOUL – SAN FRANCISCO, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (via Blockchain Wire) – CPUcoin, the sharing economy for CPU/GPU power, is excited to announce its upcoming Initial Exchange Offering (“IEO”) of its CPUcoin (CPU) utility token on ProBit Exchange. The first-round offering will begin sharply at 9 AM KST on August 14, 2019. ProBit is a rapidly growing exchange with weekly trading volume exceeding $175 million and over 150 crypto pairs.CPUcoin is developing the Compute Generation Network, or CGN. This decentralized Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution drastically reduces cloud infrastructure costs by enabling a new sharing economy for unused CPU/GPU power, and provides end users with up to 4.5X more computational throughput than traditional cloud providers like AWS Lambda. “ProBit has already secured itself a spot as a top-tier global exchange, and their track record of excellence will help establish a rapid path towards a robust and liquid market for CPUcoin,” said Sean Barger, Managing Director of CPUcoin. CPUcoin enables anyone to install its miner client and collect funds for their unused compute time. A new certified utility token, also called CPUcoin, will enable any sized organization to pay as they go. The Compute Generation Network will launch with a series of strategic partnerships to ensure increased utility of the token and provide growth capacity. For example, the first decentralized service to run on the CGN, Equilibrium MediaRich, currently powers multiple Fortune 500 companies including Walmart, Adidas, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures and The Department of Energy. For capacity, CPUcoin has partnered with QoinPro to offer their 1.2mil accounts the opportunity to earn CPU by installing the CGN miner.The CGN effectively eliminates the hassles and high expenses associated with provisioning, managing and scaling applications globally. Think of CPUcoin as the “Airbnb” for CPU/GPU compute power and a platform for automatically deploying and scaling Decentralized Services and DApps. As the native currency of the CGN, CPUcoin will be used to pay for all consumption of services, as well as to pay out to the many providers of idle computer time.

RiverNorth Marketplace Lending Corporation to List on New York Stock Exchange

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 25 marzo 2019

The RiverNorth Marketplace Lending Corporation (NASDAQ: RMPLX) (the “Fund”), established and currently operating as a closed-end interval fund dedicated to the marketplace lending asset class, announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has approved the listing of the Fund’s shares so that they may be traded in the secondary market. The Board recognized that listing the Fund may offer shareholders benefits over maintaining the existing direct-purchase structure. The Fund intends to list its shares for trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) in the second quarter of 2019. The Board determined not to alter the Fund’s fundamental policy regarding quarterly tender offers conducted in accordance with Rule 23c-3 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
After listing, the Fund’s shares will generally only be available for purchase in the secondary market at prevailing market prices rather than at net asset value. The listing will also make the Fund’s shares more widely available. The listing of the Fund will not alter the Fund’s investment strategy or objective. The Fund will continue to invest in a diverse mix of marketplace lending sectors, including unsecured consumer, small business, and specialty finance. The Fund’s investment objective remains to seek a high level of current income. Given the Fund’s broader availability, low net asset value volatility, high level of income and access to a unique asset class, it is anticipated that the Fund may trade well in the secondary market, providing shareholders the possibility of selling their shares at a premium to the Fund’s net asset value. Although the Fund could also trade at a discount, this offers investors the potential opportunity to purchase shares at an attractive price below the Fund’s net asset value. We believe that by maintaining the Fund’s policy to offer quarterly tender offers made pursuant to Rule 23c-3 under the Investment Company Act, the Fund will trade well in the secondary market and that the premium/discount volatility will be minimized.

A deepened Single market for labour and digital innovation

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 15 maggio 2016

digital innovationPaul-Jaspers Dittrich, research fellow in our office in Germany, the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, argues that the EU needs higher productivity growth. Higher factor mobility, especially of labour, but also of capital or knowledge and technology, would benefit European citizens as it enhances the efficient allocation of resources and thus boosts productivity and welfare in the Single Market. A higher geographic labour mobility and a genuine European labour market can become a major factor in putting the EU on a track of more economic and productivity growth and less cyclical unemployment.
Product market reforms in the digital sector can boost TFP-growth. The Digital Single Market (DSM) should become a cornerstone of future productivity growth. Several measures should be taken up to meet these objectives. The European Job Mobility Portal EURES could become a European employment agency in the long-term. National employment agencies should cooperate more and exchange information in a European database on vacancies. A better functioning job placement system has to be accompanied by discretionary measures designed to bring young people in training and jobs and address skill shortages. One proposal for this is the Erasmus Pro: One Million European apprentices by 2020-initiative. Member states should simplify their recognition procedures and open up “closed professions” such as architects, accountants or engineers for European citizens.National policy action has to accompany European regulation: Southern European countries need to introduce more elements of flexi-curity and life-long learning into their national policy mix. Countries like Germany should invest more in higher education as unfavourable demographics will otherwise lead to accelerating skill shortages.The drive towards a European labour market should be accompanied by prioritised policy actions to manage the digital transformation. A functioning Digital Single Market accelerates the diffusion of new ideas, business models and technology, thus boosting TFP. Policy-makers should prioritise actions with a focus on productivity growth. E-commerce is a rapidly growing segment which should make better use of the Single Market. Mobile markets need more competition for companies and more coordination among MS for the assignment of spectrum licenses. This could lead to a faster adaption and diffusion of the coming 5-G technology, in turn supplying the EU with a competitive edge for the development of new services and products in the era of inter-connectivity and the Internet of Things.
Un marché unique approfondi pour le travail et l’innovation numérique
Paul-Jaspers Dittrich, chercheur au sein de notre bureau en Allemagne, le Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, indique dans son Policy paper que l’UE doit augmenter la croissance de sa productivité. Une plus grande mobilité des facteurs, et notamment du travail, mais aussi des capitaux ou des connaissances et de la technologie serait bénéfique aux citoyens européens car elle améliorerait l’efficacité de l’allocation des ressources et donc la productivité et le bien-être au sein du marché unique. Une plus grande mobilité géographique du travail et l’existence d’un véritable marché du travail européen pourraient devenir un facteur important pour remettre l’UE sur la voie d’une croissance économique plus forte, d’un accroissement de la productivité et d’une réduction du chômage conjoncturel.Les réformes du marché des produits dans le secteur numérique peuvent soutenir la croissance de la productivité totale des facteurs. Le marché unique numérique devrait devenir l’une des pierres angulaires de l’augmentation future de la productivité. Plusieurs mesures devraient être prises afin de remplir ces objectifs. Le portail européen sur la mobilité de l’emploi d’EURES pourrait devenir à long terme une agence pour l’emploi européenne. Les agences nationales pour l’emploi devraient coopérer davantage et procéder à des échanges d’information dans une base de données européenne des vacances d’emplois. L’amélioration du fonctionnement du système de placement doit être accompagnée par des mesures discrétionnaires destinées à offrir des formations et des emplois aux jeunes et à faire face aux pénuries de compétences. Erasmus Pro constitue l’une des propositions en ce sens : elle prévoit un million d’apprentis européens d’ici 2020. Les États membres devraient simplifier les procédures de reconnaissance et ouvrir les “professions protégées” telles qu’architectes, comptables ou ingénieurs aux citoyens européens.

Capital Market Exchange Combines its Proprietary Investor Sentiment

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 17 gennaio 2014

bostonBoston, Mass. — Capital Market Exchange today announced the enhancement to its Investment Grade Bond Analytics Platform to include Credit Default Swaps. Institutional asset managers and hedge fund clients can now apply its unique Sentiment Adjusted Spreads to identify negative basis and pure arbitrage trades in the $30 trillion CDS market. Capital Market Exchange is the first firm to utilize new forms of unstructured data such as professional bond investor opinions in combination with traditional credit metrics to develop a forward-looking projection of credit risk by bond outstanding.Through its patent-pending aggregation process, Capital Market Exchange learned investors had renewed and heightened concerns about liquidity in the cash bond market early last year. For this reason and others, investment teams turned to the CDS market. While asset managers have had access to the CDS market since the early 1990s, increased interest in using derivates was pointed out by the industry’s leading advocate, SIFMA and affirmed by Bloomberg News.Bloomberg News reported in January of this year bond investors’ derivatives purchases reached their record levels in 2013 a high not seen since 2008. Capital Market Exchange’s President Sarah Biller affirmed it was this level of interest in the CDS market that drove the firm’s decision to broadly release this enhancement. Ms. Biller noted, “Fixed Income investors, especially those with ETF products or unconstrained mandates, are more frequently executing their opinions in the CDS market. They recognize the immense potential value of incorporating forward-looking factors into their investment decisions in the highly liquid CDS market.”

Le tre piattaforme di exchange-traded product

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 luglio 2010

ETF Securities ha pubblicato le statistiche relative alla prima metà del 2010, che riguardano le tre piattaforme di exchange-traded product (commodity, valute ed ETF azionari). Ecco di seguito le maggiori evidenze al 30 giugno 2010: ETFS Physical Gold è stato in rialzo del 34% in euro. L’oro è diventato una delle migliori asset class di ETF Securities durante la prima metà del 2010 dato che gli investitori stanno cercando beni rifugio dall’aumento del rischio sovrano e bancario in Europa. Nello stesso periodo, l’indice FTSE ha registrato una flessione del 14% e l’Euro Stoxx 50 una del 20% in dollari statunitensi. L’attivo gestito (AUM) degli ETC di ETF Securities sull’oro fisico ha raccolto 2,6 miliardi di dollari statunitensi, raggiungendo adesso un totale di 11,4 miliardi di dollari statunitensi. Si tratta di una crescita del 30% da fine dicembre ed è l’aumento più grande mai registrato su base semestrale. Gli ETC di ETF Securities sull’oro fisico, che detengono 9,3 milioni di once a fine di giugno 2010, rappresentano un primato a livello europeo e sono secondi a livello mondiale per oro corrispettivo sottostante. Le società attive nell’estrazione aurifera hanno beneficiato della ripresa del prezzo dell’oro con ETFX DAXglobal Gold Mining Fund in crescita del 28% in euro nella prima metà del 2010. Dopo una performance particolarmente forte registrata nel primo trimestre, la debolezza dei mercati azionari mondiali ha eroso alcuni dei profitti realizzati nel secondo trimestre 2010. Gli ETC sulle valute hanno beneficiato dello spostamento dell’avversione al rischio, con ETFS Long JPY Short EUR in crescita del 23% nella prima metà del 2010 dato che gli investitori si sono adoperati per liquidare attività economiche di rischio finanziate in Yen giapponesi. Un altro dei maggiori beneficiari dell’aumento dell’avversione al rischio è stato ETFS Long USD Short EUR in crescita del 17%. Gli investitori infatti hanno chiuso le posizioni in euro posizionandosi sul dollaro statunitense visto che la crisi greca ha alimentato largamente le preoccupazioni del debito statale in Europa.
ETFS Physical Palladium ha registrato nella prima metà del 2010 una crescita del 11% in dollari statunitensi dato la costante e ingente domanda di automobili in Cina, la penuria di scorte e un consensus generale sul fatto che le riserve di platino della Russia potrebbero essere più basse rispetto a quanto precedentemente previsto.  Gli ETC di ETF Securities hanno registrato 361 milioni di afflussi nella prima metà del 2010, guidati dalla forte domanda proveniente dagli Stati Uniti dove ETF Securities ha quotato i primi prodotti su platino e palladio fisico ad inizio gennaio.
ETFS Physical Silver ha registrato un’ottima performance nella prima metà del 2010, con una crescita del 10%. L’ETC sull’argento fisico ha beneficiato del suo status di riserva di valore e bene rifugio simile all’oro. La forte performance di oro, argento e palladio ha fatto in modo che ETFS Physical PM Basket (che include oro, argento, platino e palladio) completasse la performance dei metalli preziosi con un  aumento del 10,4%.
