Legal Cannabis Market in Europe Set to be Worth €3.2 billion by 2025

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 2 aprile 2021

The European cannabis market is forecast to grow with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 67.4% to reach €3.2 billion by 2025, a new report has found.The European Cannabis Report: 6th Edition, released today by global cannabis industry consultants, Prohibition Partners, highlights how 60,000 people were able to access cannabis medications for the first time in Europe in 2020, bringing the total to 185,000 patients for the year. “60,000 people were able to access cannabis medications for the first time in Europe in”The value of the European medical cannabis market will reach €406 million by the end of 2021: a year-on-year growth of 75% compared to 2020, according to the report’s estimates. Germany is the medical cannabis goliath in Europe owing to progressive legislation and a large and affluent population. Germany will constitute over half of the European market until 2024 and will be worth over €840 million by the end of the forecast period. Imports of medical cannabis into the German market increased by 37% last year, bringing the total to 9.3 tonnes of product.By 2025, countries like France and the UK will have developed patient access to medical cannabis considerably, and large European nations like these will represent a significant share of the European market, the report forecasts. If regulations continue to progress as predicted, the UK medical cannabis market could show the most significant growth of any country in Europe by 2025.As adult-use cannabis is not yet legalised anywhere in Europe, the market for legal cannabis products in Europe remains entirely medical. This balance is expected to shift over the next four years, as more countries open up to the prospect of legalising adult-use cannabis.Prohibition Partners’ report identifies several European nations that could introduce legal access to adult-use cannabis by 2025, including Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany. Sales of adult-use cannabis could be worth over €500 million by 2025.This progression of medical and legalised adult-use cannabis will contribute to exponential growth over the next four years. By 2025, it is estimated that the European cannabis market will be worth €3.2 billion. The European Cannabis Report: 6th Edition takes an in-depth look at the progress of cannabis legalisation across Europe, the trade flows on the continent, business opportunities, medical products on the market and the patients who use them. The report also considers how COVID-19 has affected the market in Europe and what this means for the year ahead.

Breakthrough to create €4.2 billion Single Market Programme

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 dicembre 2020

Parliament and Council negotiators reached a provisional political agreement on the new €4.2 billion programme to strengthen the EU’s internal market.The Single Market Programme for 2021-2027 will support a wide range of activities, from guaranteeing health and food safety to supporting SMEs and improving consumer protection. Its overarching goal is to foster cooperation and make the internal market more sustainable.The programme will focus on the following areas: • Supporting EU businesses: Actions to support SMEs will focus on international competitiveness, development of digital and entrepreneurial skills and the green transition. Support can also be granted to business clusters and social economy enterprises. • Better governance of internal market: Market surveillance will be financed via the new programme with a separate budgetary envelope, contributing to efforts to curb the risks for consumers, whether through scams, or unsafe or counterfeit products at a time when e-commerce is on the rise. The programme will support actions promoting greater choice of high quality products and services offered in the internal market. • Stronger consumer protection: The priority actions include improving overall protection and awareness of EU consumer rights, as well as actions to promote sustainable consumption and ensure product safety. • High level of health and safety: A big part of the programme will be dedicated to guaranteeing health and food safety, for example by supporting effective veterinary and phytosanitary controls in case of health crises, endorsing safe production, and making the EU food industry more competitive. • The programme will also finance data gathering for high-quality, comparable, and reliable European statistics.

Red Light Holland and Halo Labs Announce Intention to Enter Oregon Medicinal Psilocybin Market

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 24 novembre 2020

Toronto, Ontario. Halo Labs Inc. (“Halo”) (NEO: HALO) (OTC: AGEEF) (Germany: A9KN) and Red Light Holland Corp. (CSE: TRIP) (FSE: 4YX) (OTC: TRUFF) (“Red Light Holland”) are pleased to announce they have entered into a non-binding letter of intent for the purposes of creating a joint venture to become a licensed psilocybin manufacturer to supply psilocybin products to licensed service centers in the State of Oregon, and to explore other potential business opportunities in this new regulated market, subject to compliance with all applicable Oregon laws and regulations. “Clearly, we are very excited with the recent results of Oregon Measure 109 where progressive Oregonians have voted in favor of becoming the first state in the US, to allow the use of psilocybin, for therapeutic use. We take pride at Red Light Holland in our self-regulated responsible adult use psilocybin legal product (iMicrodose packs in the Netherlands), which we feel could become a model for the development of psilocybin products for the Oregon regulated market to be used to potentially treat chronic mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and addiction” said Red Light Holland CEO and Director Todd Shapiro. “We are aware that these are early days for the Oregon psilocybin market, we cannot make medical claims, and the path ahead is still a long one as the Oregon Health Authority still has to create a state-licensed, psilocybin-assisted therapy program over the next two years. This is exactly why we have entered into a non-binding LOI with Halo Labs, as CEO Kiran Sidhu and his team have deep regulatory experience and relationships with Oregon lawmakers and state officials, having founded Halo Labs, a successful vertically integrated cannabis company that started in the State of Oregon and now operates in multiple US states, Africa and in the UK” added Shapiro.

Anna Cavazzini elected Chair of Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 29 ottobre 2020

In a statement released shortly after her election, the Chair said:“The COVID-19 crisis has shown that we cannot take the achievements of the EU’s internal market for granted. Closed borders and interrupted supply chains have brought the essence of European integration into sharp relief: working together across borders. We have to defend the future integrity of the single market, but we must also update it. High social, environmental and consumer standards are cornerstones of the single market. Upholding these standards should be at the forefront of the digital transformation, which should benefit European citizens and businesses alike.The Internal Market Committee is elaborating the EU Green Deal and working on new challenges that digitalisation brings, such as the regulation of online platforms via the Digital Services Act or a more sustainable product policy through the circular economy. We are striving to make these transformations successful for both the economy and EU citizens whose daily lives will benefit from our efforts. The Internal Market Committee thus serves to bring citizens closer to the EU decision-making process.I hope that the Internal Market Committee can be a central forum to discuss the future challenges of the green and digital transformations – not only within Parliament but also in exchange with civil society, all stakeholders and citizens. I want this dialogue and subsequent decisions to be accessible, whether with regards to strengthening the single market while maintaining high social and environmental standards, making the single market fit for the green deal, or considering how to increase citizens’ trust in the EU by ensuring the highest levels of consumer protection.”

Plenary approves a call to urgently complete the Capital Markets Union

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 12 ottobre 2020

The Capital Markets Union (CMU) should be developed more quickly, MEPs say, arguing that this would allow companies deprived of funding to tap into financial markets and reduce their dependence on bank lending.They take note of the Commission Communication of 24 September 2020 regarding the Capital Markets Union for people and business but insist on a stronger commitment to achieving real progress on issues such as supervision, taxation and insolvency laws, which still represent major obstacles to the true integration of EU capital markets.To this end, MEPs proposed several targeted changes, aligning and simplifying the existing provisions concerning issues such as: capital requirements, reporting frameworks, or listing requirements for SMEs regarding Initial Public Offerings. They also call for the EU venture capital and private equity markets to be developed more quickly in order to increase transparency and reduce fragmentation. At the same time, the text stresses the need for adequate prudential rules to build the capacity of financial institutions to absorb losses.MEPs point out that the CMU requires a developed investor base with suitable investment options for retail investors paired with improved disclosure and the ability to compare key information. They call for a more horizontal, harmonised approach to consumer and investor protection in EU financial services legislation, adapted to the green and digital transitions, in order to ensure effective and consistent levels of protection for financial products and providers.Finally, the adopted text highlights that the CMU should be a key contributor to the transition towards a sustainable, competitive and resilient economy, complementing public investment and in line with the EU Green Deal. The text also points out that Europe competes for capital in a global market, therefore efficient and resilient European capital markets are critical to protecting Europe’s economic sovereignty.The resolution was adopted with 417 votes to 205 and 72 abstentions.

COVID-19: Single market must emerge stronger from the crisis, say MEPs

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 maggio 2020

Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee MEPs voiced concerns about the internal market during a debate with Commission Executive Vice-President Vestager on Monday.The majority of MEPs perceive the timely state aid schemes as a lifeline for companies during the COVID-19 crisis. However, they stress that all national state aid instruments such as grants or zero interest rate loans must be proportional and allocated in a transparent way.They also pointed to huge differences between the member states’ fiscal firepower, which is likely to have long lasting consequences on the internal market’s cohesion and asked about the strings attached to state aid such as contributions to the green economy.Commissioner Margrethe Vestager focused on the recovery package to be presented on Wednesday and the new solvency instrument, which will help recapitalise healthy companies put at risk by the pandemic. She agreed that the single market is crucial for recovery and assured MEPs that state aid is temporary, limited and designed to protect from bankruptcies and lay-offs. Ms Vestager stressed that the new recovery architecture will focus on minimising internal market distortions.Addressing recurring concerns voiced by many MEPs that the majority of state aid (47%) was obtained by German companies, Mrs Vestager highlighted the interdependence of the EU economy and interlinked value chains. German spending will therefore benefit companies across the EU, she stressed.MEPs also asked about the weaknesses laid bare by the crisis such as the EU’s dependence on other countries or digital giants to get strategic products such as medicine, medical equipment or tracing apps.The executive Vice-President reiterated the importance of striking a balance between strategic independence, trade and an open economy, which constitutes one of the EU’s main strengths. She called for a nuanced approach between self-reliance and an open global economy, because many jobs and businesses depend on that balance.Some MEPs insisted that green transformation and accountability to taxpayers should be a precondition for companies to receive aid. The Vice-President assured them that such companies have every incentive to stand on their own feet because bonuses, dividends and share buy-backs are banned. She also stressed that the EU will build its recovery around the agreed climate and digital goals. Finally, she recalled her constant efforts to achieve more tax justice by introducing digital taxation and carbon border taxes as a compensation for green EU companies.

Deutsche Bank announces above-market expectations for the first quarter 2020 and updates Outlook for full year 2020

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 1 maggio 2020

Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DB / NYSE: DB) expects to report group profit before tax of 206 million euros and net income of 66 million euros, above market expectations. Revenues are expected to be 6.4 billion euros with noninterest expenses of 5.6 billion euros, including contributions to the Single Resolution Fund of 0.5 billion euros. Provisions for credit losses are expected to be 0.5 billion euros, or 44 basis points of loans. Consensus estimates showed a wide range around each of these results.
Deutsche Bank’s Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio was 12.8% at quarter end, down from 13.6% at year end. The decline in the CET1 ratio in the quarter included approximately a 30 basis points negative impact from the revised securitization framework as expected, and approximately 40 basis points of items precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.In anticipation of business opportunities and elevated client demand and in light of the current macroeconomic environment, Deutsche Bank is reviewing its 2020 CET1 and leverage ratio targets. Management has made the clear decision to allow capital to fall modestly and temporarily below its target in order to support clients and the broader economy at this time of economic crisis.The bank’s CET1 ratio of 12.8% at quarter end was approximately 240 basis points above its current pillar 2 regulatory requirement. This has been lowered from 11.6% at 1 January 2020 to 10.4%, following the ECB’s early implementation of CRD V Article 104(a) and the reduction of the Counter-Cyclical Capital Buffer. A reduction in capital requirements reduces the level below which the bank would be required to calculate a Maximum Distributable Amount (MDA). The MDA is used to determine restrictions on distributions on CET1 capital and Additional Tier 1 instruments.The short-term implications of the COVID-19 pandemic make it difficult for the bank to accurately reflect the timing and the magnitude of changes to its original capital plan. Deutsche Bank’s priority is to stand by its clients without compromising on capital strength. It is therefore possible that the bank will fall modestly and temporarily below its previous CET1 target of at least 12.5%. Deutsche Bank remains committed to maintaining a significant buffer above its regulatory requirements at all times.This revised outlook acknowledges that credit extension to support clients at this time could increase risk weighted assets for several quarters. In addition, there are a series of pending and proposed regulatory adjustments which could improve the bank’s reported CET1 ratio.This potential additional balance sheet growth also means that the bank is unlikely to reach its 2020 fully-loaded leverage ratio target of 4.5%, absent regulatory adjustments to the leverage ratio calculation which may increase the banks reported ratio. Given the temporary nature of the aforementioned capital items, the bank will continue to work towards its 2022 targets of a 12.5% CET1 ratio target and 5% leverage ratio.Deutsche Bank reaffirms its other financial targets, including for 2020 adjusted costs excluding transformation charges and reimbursable expenses associated with the transfer of the Prime Finance platform to BNP Paribas of 19.5 billion euros.

Market timing e finanza comportamentale: con i piani di accumulo l’investimento può rendere il doppio

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 17 aprile 2020

A cura di Paolo Paschetta, Country Head Italia di Pictet Asset Management. Il Covid-19 genera panico anche sui mercati. Il crollo violento e concentrato di tutti i listini azionari nelle ultime due settimane è la testimonianza più evidente di questo sentimento e del conseguente panic selling. Un errore tipico che può essere superato se si adotta la strategia di investimento propria dei piani di accumulo, ovvero una modalità di accesso al mercato graduale, che si basa su sottoscrizioni periodiche di importi modulati sul profilo di rischio del cliente. Un approccio che aiuta a mettere da parte le emozioni e abbatte la volatilità limitando le perdite nelle fasi Orso, ma riuscendo a intercettare praticamente per intero i rialzi (di cui, invece, nel lungo periodo, l’investitore medio perde una metà).La crisi che abbiamo iniziato ad attraversare è senza precedenti nell’era contemporanea. A differenza della maggior parte delle altre crisi degli ultimi 20 anni, non deriva da una crepa nel sistema economico o finanziario, ma è scaturita da un fattore totalmente esogeno, una gravissima emergenza sanitaria globale. L’ultimo decennio d’altronde, quello del ciclo più lungo della storia, è stato caratterizzato da performance eccezionali di tutte le asset class: l’equity ha segnato tra il 100 e il 200% e l’obbligazionario tra il 50 e il 100%. Ma è stato anche il meno amato di sempre: prova ne sia il 2019, anno in cui un portafoglio bilanciato avrebbe reso di più che in qualsiasi altro anno dal 1980 e in cui, mentre i mercati azionari hanno restituito un rendimento tra il 25 e il 30%, i fondi azionari in Italia hanno segnato una raccolta negativa per oltre 2,4 miliardi (
Un’analisi della rivista Advisors Perspective calcola, per esempio, che oltre il 70% delle perdite accumulate dagli investitori dell’S&P 500 negli ultimi 35 anni dipendano da dieci periodi di crolli molto brevi (limitati a un mese) recuperati nell’85% dei casi in tre mesi e nel 93% entro un anno. Che sia stato il panico a generare le perdite lo dimostra il tasso di deflussi che nei periodi di crisi passa dal 2,7% mensile al 5,16% sul principale listino americano ( I dati storici confermano che gli investitori che non sono usciti dal listino nel corso dell’anno successivo, ne hanno beneficiato (in nove casi su dieci, l’eccezione è il crollo delle Twin Towers nel settembre 2001 in cui il mercato ha necessitato di più tempo per ritornare ai valori pre-crisi).
Una ricerca di marzo 2020 realizzata della società di ricerca indipendente Dalbar dal titolo “Quantitative Analysis of Investor Behavior” rileva che un investitore azionario medio Usa abbia perso, negli ultimi trent’anni, circa la metà del guadagno potenziale ( Soprattutto in un contesto di elevata volatilità come quello attuale, la tempistica con cui si effettua un investimento può avere un impatto significativo sui risultati conseguiti, come ci insegna il passato. Spalmare il proprio investimento nel tempo riduce il rischio di incappare in un punto di ingresso sfavorevole. Simulando, invece, che ogni giorno sin dal lancio del fondo (ottobre 2008) sia partito un Pac da 1000€ di versamento inziale e 36 rate mensili da 100€ sul Pictet-Global Megatrend Selection (che racchiude al suo interno 10 strategie tematiche di Pictet equipesate, con ribilanciamento mensile), il risultato sarebbe che nessun investimento avrebbe registrato un rendimento negativo nell’arco dei 3 anni del Pac, ossia ipotizzando un disinvestimento totale al termine del piano. La performance media registrata è del +21%. Al di là del contesto di crisi illustrato negli esempi precedenti, il principale beneficio dell’investimento tramite Pac rispetto all’investimento in un’unica soluzione è quello di ridurre la volatilità. Mediare i punti di ingresso, infatti, fa sì che in media i Pac presentino una volatilità dimezzata rispetto ai Pic (investimenti in un’unica soluzione).I Pac consentono quindi di rendere più rigoroso l’approccio agli investimenti perché si basano su versamenti periodici, con un orizzonte temporale determinato. A intervalli regolari, l’investitore incrementa la cifra affidata in gestione, rimuovendo in tal modo il timing che, come abbiamo visto, è uno degli elementi più rischiosi e difficili da gestire.Ultimo, ma non meno importante, si tratta di strumenti estremamente flessibili e adattabili alle diverse esigenze di chi investe. Nati per i piccoli patrimoni, si adattano anche a investitori Hnwi (High net worth individual). Inoltre, da una parte sono ideali per aiutare i più giovani a costruire un patrimonio nel tempo, mettendo da parte anche piccoli importi mensili per un periodo di tempo prolungato (fino a 15 anni e oltre). E all’estremo opposto, oggi ancor più di prima, sono indicati anche per chi possiede ingente liquidità da investire, ma non si fida dell’andamento volatile dei mercati e predispone quindi piani magari di durata più corta (anche pochi mesi), ma per versamenti periodici più sostanziosi.

Investors reprice property equities as credit market risk intensifies

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 aprile 2020

In the April issue of CREDI, the Main index decreases from 49.5 to 33.7 indicating the worst credit market sentiment since the inception of CREDI in 2012. Meanwhile, market capitalisation for property equities decline sharply as investors fear Covid-19 outbreak. “This year’s first CREDI survey indicate the most challenging credit market sentiment since the inception of CREDI in 2012 as the Main index is recorded at its lowest point to date. Following the outbreak of Covid-19, the CREDI Main index declined sharply from a previously stable level around the 50-mark to 33.7. In the meantime, property companies’ market capitalisation fell from SEK 610 billion in the fourth quarter to SEK 423 billion, suggesting a shift from premium to discount. Thus, implicit yield soared back above 4 percent and is now around 4.6 per cent,” says Carl Wingmark, Partner at Catella.
“The spreading of Covid-19 in Europe and the USA has been a game changer on the financial markets. Both S&P 500 and most European markets have entered bear market territory (although there was a strong comeback between March 23 and 31) and the economic activities are slowing down to standstill in most European countries,” says Arvid Lindqvist, Head of Research at Catella.
“In 2020, bond market activity has been generally high with issuances at record-low yields. However, the recent developments of Covid-19 have severely impacted bond investor demand, as bond yields increased substantially. Notably, bond market activity remains even though demand is temporarily hampered and a quick pick up can be expected when and if the Covid-19 spread is contained,” Arvid Lindqvist concludes.The Catella Real Estate Debt Indicator (CREDI) is attached and can also be downloaded from CREDI consists of two parts: one is an index based on a survey of listed property companies and active banks, and the other a set of indices and analyses based on publicly available data.

Delivering masks across borders: EU Single Market protecting citizens’ health

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 21 marzo 2020

The continuous supply of essential goods and vital medical and protective equipment within the Single Market is key to addressing the COVID-19 crisis.The chairs of Parliament’s Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee, Petra De Sutter (Greens/EFA, BE), and Transport Committee, Karima Delli (Greens/EFA, FR), welcomed today’s rapid decision of EU Transport ministers to support green lane supply routes (giving priority to transport of essential goods such as food as well as vital medical and protective equipment), as suggested by MEPs and the Commission. The aim of the new and urgent COVID-19 measures is to protect health and keep goods and essential services available within the EU’s internal market.“Completely closing down borders might seem like the safest way to protect our citizens, but we all depend on imports from other member states to keep our supplies uninterrupted. Guaranteeing the unobstructed transport of essential goods such as food and guaranteeing an uninterrupted supply of vital medical and protective equipment, ensures that this crisis will not turn into a catastrophe. We rely and we depend on each other when it comes to our public health”, said the Chair of the Internal Market Committee.“Installing so-called ‘green lanes’ – especially for medical and protective equipment – is of utmost importance in the coming days and weeks”, stressed Ms de Sutter, referring to member states’ commitment on the supply of medical equipment.
Transport Committee Chair Karima Delli said that smooth border crossing and coordination between member states will be essential to overcome this crisis. “We have to find ways to keep our transport systems going and to reduce queues to save time and money. We stand ready to act together and quickly and we stand behind the drivers and the whole transport sector that is working tirelessly to keep the goods flowing during this crisis”, said the Chair.“There is an urgent need to implement measures to end ghost flights. Airlines must be provided with guarantees on future slots. This is the only way to prevent empty flights in the EU,” she concluded.

Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 21 gennaio 2020

Bruxelles. Wednesday 22 January 2020, 9.00 – 12.30 and 14.30 – 17.30 Thursday 23 January 2020, 9.00 – 11.00 Antall building, room 4Q1. The Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) Committee will vote on a resolution addressing several challenges arising from the rapid development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology and automated decision-making, in particular those related with consumer choice. Services and goods using AI bring with them the risk of consumers being misled, discriminated against or even harmed, for example in relation to differentiated pricing or to automated professional services carried out without human oversight.
MEPs want to ensure that only non-biased data is used in automated decision-making processes.The committee will also assess whether the existing EU product safety and liability rules need to be adapted to cover new AI-enabled products and services, in order to ensure free movement in the single market and that consumers are protected and receive compensation if harm occurs.- Competition policy – annual report 2019 – rapporteur from the lead Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee: Stéphanie Yon-Courtin (Renew, FR) – adoption of a draft opinion by the Internal Market Committee in letter form
The aim of the hearing is to hear the views of stakeholders (business and consumers associations) and academia on the need to review the Product Liability Directive and on related challenges in the new digital age. It would allow participants to present their views on whether the overall liability regime is adequate to facilitate the uptake of the new technologies, and to address the matter from different perspectives.It will also offer the opportunity to hear the Commission’s conclusions of its evaluation work and results achieved in the expert group on liability and new technologies together with a presentation of further plans in this regard.The implications and new challenges for liability legislation brought by digitisation, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity are among the issues to be addressed in the hearing. The Product Liability Directive, adopted in 1985, gives consumers the right to claim compensation for damage caused by defective products.
