Deutsche Bank brings forward its target date for 200 billion euros of sustainable finance by two years to 2023

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 25 Maggio 2021

Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DB / NYSE: DB) will align its business even more strictly to environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria and is setting ambitious targets for them. It aims to facilitate over 200 billion euros in sustainable finance and investments by the end of 2023, two years earlier than originally planned. “We have to progress as quickly as possible from ambition to impact”, said CEO Christian Sewing. “Since announcing our 200 billion euro target last year, we have made significantly more progress than we anticipated. We now want to achieve this volume sooner and we will report on progress transparently and in detail”. By the end of the first quarter of 2021 the bank’s business divisions (not including DWS) had facilitated sustainable finance and investments of 71 billion euros. In cooperation with the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the city-state’s central bank, Deutsche Bank is establishing an ESG Centre of Excellence. Its task will be to focus on public and private ESG product development, advisory services and financing. It will be run by Kamran Khan, Deutsche Bank’s head of ESG in Asia-Pacific. Represented by its International Private Bank, Deutsche Bank has become the first bank to be a full member of the Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance. Deutsche Bank Research will regularly focus on ESG in its reports on the German Mittelstand. The bank will roll out a concept for sustainability ambassadors. This group of experts from different business divisions and infrastructure functions will boost its representation at public forums and engage with stakeholders on ESG topics. In its home market, Deutsche Bank aims to invest more in financial education. By the end of 2022, it plans to double the number of employees who provide financial education to schools at least once a year from 350 to 700.

Le frontiere del banking e finance: nuovi paradigmi in continua evoluzione

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 15 febbraio 2021

Economia e Finanza, L’Avv. Fabio Cristini (StayFintech) esperto in Banking e Finance nell’ambito della Vigilanza Bancaria, commenta i nuovi paradigmi del settore in continua evoluzione alla luce della prossima nomina alla guida del Dicastero del Tesoro che dovrà tirare fuori il Paese dall’emergenza sociale ed economica: “Le recenti evoluzioni del mondo bancario e finanziario ci fanno assistere ad una duplice tendenza: da un lato la disintermediazione degli attuali canali di erogazione del credito e dei servizi di pagamento così come li conosciamo, con l’entrata in campo di piattaforme Big Tech quali Google, Amazon, Facebook – dall’altro il forte impatto dell’avvento di asset virtuali come nuovo sistema sia di pagamento che di investimento. Il tutto accompagnato da una forte tendenza delle banche a monetizzare i propri crediti non performing nel rispetto delle sempre più rigide indicazioni della BCE al fine di garantire una stabilità patrimoniale ed una sana e prudente gestione degli NPE. Ne deriva un quadro variegato e complesso, oggetto di continua evoluzione e mutamento – commenta l’Avv. Cristini fondatore insieme al collega Avv. Davide Cresci della piattaforma per la creazione un network di esperti, professionisti e interessati in cui discutere e confrontarsi sugli sviluppi regolamentari e di business legati al Fintech in Italia – Sarà fondamentale – conclude – arrivare quanto prima ad un concetto di progressiva sostituzione delle rigide normative con indicazioni, regolamenti e linee guida delle Autorità di settore, le uniche in grado di garantire una regolamentazione al passo con l’evoluzione del mondo tecnologico e finanziario”.

FinTech Working Group monitors benefits and threats of digital finance

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 5 dicembre 2020

In a meeting dedicated primarily to analysing the benefits, risks and challenges of global stablecoins, MEPs quizzed the invited speakers about the prospects of a digital euro.On Tuesday, the FinTech Working Group convened for the fifth time and welcomed invitees Nouriel Roubini, Professor of Economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business, Jorg Kukies, State Secretary at the German Federal Ministry of Finance and Stuart Levey, CEO of Diem (formerly the Libra Association). Discussion focused on crypto-assets and their regulation in the EU. MEPs also asked whether the ECB should accelerate its digital currency project. In light of actions by third countries and big tech, MEPs emphasised the need to curb anti-competitive behaviour and take active measures to prevent foreign players from dominating the financial services and e-commerce sectors, as well as restricting their access to the personal financial data of EU citizens. Consequently, unregulated stablecoins may threaten financial stability and consumer protection. Participants asked numerous questions on how to establish a prudential regulatory framework, which would tackle abuses, preserve the level playing field, and boost innovation.

Deutsche Bank sees rebound in trade finance volumes post Covid-19

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 30 novembre 2020

Deutsche Bank sees global trade finance volumes rebounding by more than 7 percent in 2021.Daniel Schmand, Deutsche Bank’s Head of Trade Finance and Lending, forecasts that trade finance will be one of the winners in a post-Covid-19 environment. “The World Trade Organization has forecast a 9.2 percent decline in the volume of world merchandise trade for this year, but it considers a rebound by more than 7 percent to be more than likely next year”. “Since the news that a Covid-19 vaccine might be broadly available in the New Year, our global trade finance outlook has improved. We expect trade finance activity to return to pre-crisis levels around the middle of next year. Given the broad correlation of global trade and GDP growth, this is very encouraging.” Deutsche Bank has been providing trade finance services supporting importers and exporters for more than 150 years and is one of Deutsche Bank’s core businesses. During the COVID-19 crisis it has been working with the German government and KfW Bank to roll out a range of loans and guarantees to support businesses affected by the pandemic.

Climate finance neglects small-scale farmers – new report

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 14 novembre 2020

Climate finance neglects small-scale farmers – new report

Rome. Only 1.7 per cent of climate finance – a fraction of what is needed – goes to small-scale farmers in developing countries despite their disproportionate vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, according to a report released by the UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) today.Examining the Climate Finance Gap for Small-Scale Agriculture is the first detailed analysis of climate finance flows to small-scale farmers. It is released during the Finance in Common Summit where representatives of the world’s 450 Public Development Banks are meeting for the first time to discuss how to reorient financial flows to support global climate and development targets.The report shows that while financing that supports actions to address climate change surpassed half a trillion US dollars for the first time in 2017 and 2018, only $10 billion of this reached smallholder farmers annually. “It is unacceptable that the people who produce much of the world’s food, and who are at the greatest mercy of increasingly unpredictable weather, receive the least support,” said Gilbert F. Houngbo, President of IFAD. “Small-scale farmers living on marginal lands are on the frontline of climate change and should have access to the climate finance they need to adapt their production.” Small-scale farmers currently produce 50 percent of the world’s food calories. However, higher temperatures – together with increased incidences of drought and flooding – destroy crops and livestock and make it difficult for them to continue to feed their communities and earn a living.While there are no exact figures available of what climate financing small-scale farmers require, various estimates of their general needs are in the order of hundreds of billions annually, which gives an indication of the magnitude of the climate investments required.IFAD is the only multilateral development organization focused on eradicating hunger and poverty in rural areas. Next year it will launch ASAP+, a climate financing mechanism envisioned to be the largest fund dedicated to channelling climate finance to small-scale producers to help them adapt to climate change and combat hunger and malnutrition.ASAP+ builds on IFAD’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP), the largest global climate adaptation programme for smallholder farmers, which has already channelled more than $300 million to more than 5 million farmers in 41 countries.

New rural finance programme to help millions of Ethiopian farmers

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 ottobre 2020

Against the backdrop of the global impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, particularly in African countries, the Government of Ethiopia and the International Fund for Agricultural Development of the United Nations (IFAD) have launched a new US$305.7 million programme to help the most vulnerable farmers increase their resilience.The third phase of the Rural Financial Intermediation Programme (RUFIP III) is beginning at a crucial time. Implemented by the Development Bank of Ethiopia, it will help farmers to access financial services, raise and diversify their incomes, improve nutrition and build their resilience in rural areas threatened by climate change.The virtual launch involved project participants, government officials, UN and IFAD staff, including Solomon Desta, Vice Governor of the National Bank of Ethiopia, Yohannes Ayalew, President of the Development Bank of Ethiopia, Catherine Sozi, United Nations Resident Coordinator to Ethiopia and said Ulaç Demirag, IFAD Country Director for Ethiopia. The funding includes a $35.1 million grant and $4.9 million loan from IFAD, with significant cofinancing from international development partners and from national financial institutions. The Government of Ethiopia’s contribution is $51.9 million and $0.9million from the beneficiaries themselves.Ethiopia’s agriculture sector, which employs 80 per cent of the population, continues to suffer from frequent droughts aggravated by climate change. In 2017, insufficient rainfall during the rainy season led to catastrophic crop and livestock losses and left an estimated 8.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.RUFIP III will build on the lessons and experiences of the first two phases of the programme, and will scale up delivery of rural financial services tailored to the needs of the most vulnerable smallholder farmers, particularly women and young people.Through the project, rural finance institutions will be able to deliver an expanded range of financial products and services to a large number of rural poor people. It will also support the uptake of these products by rural savings and credit cooperatives and microfinance institutions through financial literacy training. It will also develop insurance products through the rural finance institutions to allow smallholder farmers to mitigate the risks related to climate change.Despite improvements, Ethiopia’s child malnutrition rates are still the highest in sub-Saharan Africa. The programme will also promote nutrition awareness through campaigns and demonstrations, targeting the areas most vulnerable to food insecurity due to climate change. It will also help farmers and small enterprises to enhance their resilience to weather related shocks. Since 1980, IFAD has invested $795.5 million in 20 rural development programmes and projects in Ethiopia worth a total of $2.1 billion. These have directly benefited around 12 million rural households.

Nasce l’Osservatorio Climate Finance

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 12 febbraio 2020

A un primo esame, sono circa 22 milioni in Europa le imprese, dalle micro alle quotate, potenzialmente soggette agli impatti dei cambiamenti climatici. Ma quali settori sono più esposti? In quali aree geografiche? Quanto potrebbero impattare sulle performance delle aziende, e sul loro profilo di rischio, le evidenti modifiche che il clima sta subendo ovunque nel mondo? Di questo si occuperà il nuovo Osservatorio Climate Finance della School of Management del Politecnico di Milano, che verrà presentato la mattina del 20 febbraio durante un evento di kick-off al Dipartimento di Ingegneria Gestionale (Sala del Consiglio, via Lambruschini 4B, Edificio 26B, campus Bovisa), dalle 9.45 alle 13.15.
L’Osservatorio – che coinvolgerà docenti e ricercatori del Politecnico di Milano esperti di temi legati alla finanza e al rischio, da un lato, e ai cambiamenti climatici, dall’altro – mira a diventare un punto di riferimento nazionale per lo studio della finanza del cambiamento climatico, uno spazio di confronto indipendente che aggregherà player industriali e finanziari interessati a queste tematiche.
Tramite modelli interpretativi basati su solide evidenze empiriche e l’utilizzo di metodologie avanzate di statistica ed econometria, verranno studiati gli impatti del cambiamento climatico sul sistema economico: a livello europeo infatti sono già state identificate circa 22 milioni di imprese, dalle micro alle quotate, potenzialmente soggette al climate change, sulle quali verrà condotta un’analisi per quantificare gli impatti di questi cambiamenti e identificare i settori e le aree geografiche maggiormente esposti al rischio climatico.
“Molte realtà hanno già manifestato interesse nel progetto, a testimonianza di quanto il climate change sia diventato centrale in tutte le valutazioni strategiche – commenta Roberto Bianchini, direttore dell’Osservatorio -. Crediamo che l’Osservatorio potrà rispondere alle recenti spinte delle autorità pubbliche e dei mercati finanziari per l’introduzione di valutazioni del rischio climatico nei modelli decisionali di imprese, banche e assicurazioni”.
La ricerca confluirà in un report che analizzerà come il mercato nazionale e internazionale stanno rispondendo alle sfide del cambiamento climatico, identificandone gli impatti sulle performance di impresa e sul profilo di rischio delle stesse.

KBRA Releases Research: Project Finance and Infrastructure 2020

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 dicembre 2019

The global project finance and infrastructure (PFI) market is expected to expand in 2020 as many countries must replace aging infrastructure, adapt to new technologies, and develop new means of energy production. These major initiatives will likely come about through the development of renewable energy assets to meet clean energy targets, improvements in telecommunications systems to account for increased internet demand, and new infrastructure investments (rail, parking, ports, etc.) to accommodate a growing population.However, the question of what comes next in the PFI sector seemed to have taken on greater importance in 2019 as the market adapted to changes in tax incentives, regulatory requirements, and the emergence of new technologies. This 2020 sector outlook discusses recent market trends, credit performance of certain PFI subsectors, and provides the Project Finance and Infrastructure Group’s forward-looking views for the year ahead.

Il settore Finance presenta una sostanziale stabilità nei tassi di occupazione

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 17 settembre 2019

E il 2019 confermerà, con buone probabilità, i trend di crescita dell’anno scorso. Nel breve – medio periodo, le previsioni del settore sono positive e si prevede che le aziende continueranno a investire in risorse Finance, in particolare in profili con forti competenze digital” – è quanto afferma Luigi Di Napoli, Manager Hays, commentando i risultati dell’edizione 2019 della Salary Guide, l’indagine annuale sull’andamento del mercato del lavoro italiano condotta da Hays, coinvolgendo un campione di oltre 150 aziende e più di 600 professionisti.Secondo la ricerca, i comparti che registrano le migliori performance dal punto di vista delle opportunità occupazionali per i professionisti Finance sono il Largo Consumo, l’Information Technology e il Digital & New Media. Nella top 3 dei profili più ricercati figurano l’Industrial Controller nell’industria metalmeccanica, il Sales Controller nel comparto Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) e l’Accounting e Tax Manager nei servizi. Meno richiesti, invece, il Finance Manager senza la conoscenza fluente dell’inglese, imprescindibile per il ruolo, e il Legal Manager, poiché molte realtà tendono ormai a esternalizzare questa funzione.Ma quali sono le caratteristiche ideali per lavorare nel settore Finance? Secondo gli esperti Hays, il candidato ideale possiede la capacità di analizzare i dati finanziari a supporto del comparto Sales, ha una conoscenza fluente dell’inglese e vanta un approccio flessibile al lavoro. Dal punto di vista del percorso accademico, la laurea in Economia resta un requisito fondamentale per fare strada nel settore.
Per quanto riguarda le retribuzioni, i professionisti più pagati* del Finance si confermano i CFO con retribuzioni che variano da 90.000 a 120.000 euro annui a seconda dell’ambito di riferimento (ad esempio 120.000 euro in ambito GDO/Retail per profili con oltre dieci anni di esperienza). Al secondo posto troviamo i Controller/Finance Manager con 70.000 euro l’anno a pari merito con i Project Cost Controll Manager (oltre dieci anni di esperienza). Stipendi più contenuti per profili come l’Internal Auditor, il Sales Controller e il Payroll Specialist che guadagnano dai 30.000 ai 40.000 euro (2 – 5 anni di esperienza).

White Oak Healthcare Finance Provides $60 Million for DW Healthcare Partners’ Acquisition of SoClean

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 27 dicembre 2017

White Oak Healthcare Finance, LLC (“WOHCF”) today announced it acted as sole lead arranger and administrative agent on the funding of a $60 million senior credit facility to finance the acquisition of SoClean Inc. (“SoClean”) by DW Healthcare Partners. SoClean is the only provider of fully automated cleaning devices for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (“CPAP”) machines. CPAPs are used to improve health outcomes for those suffering from obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.
“SoClean has developed a patented and proprietary device that is the only fully automated cleaning device on the market,” said WOHCF’s Managing Director and Partner, Isaac Soleimani. “SoClean provides an effective solution to an otherwise burdensome, but necessary, cleaning process for CPAP equipment.”
SoClean cleaning devices sanitize the CPAP mask, hose and reservoir without the need for disassembly, water or chemicals. Improperly cleaned CPAP equipment is filled with harmful bacteria and germs that could make people sick when breathed into their body. Unlike the traditional soap and water cleaning approach, SoClean’s natural approach to CPAP sanitizing kills 99.9% of bacteria and germs, which leads to a healthier breathing experience.
