What would happen if financial markets crashed?

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 16 febbraio 2022

This week we ask: what would happen if financial markets crashed? America’s financial system looks nothing like it did before the crashes of 2001 and 2008, yet lately there have been familiar signs of froth and fear on Wall Street: wild trading days on no real news, sudden price swings and a queasy feeling among many investors that they have overdosed on techno-optimism. America’s new-look financial system is still loaded with risks . Asset prices are high; interest rates are rising. If big losses materialise, the question is whether the system will safely absorb them or amplify them. The answer is not obvious, for finance has been transformed over the past 15 years by the twin forces of regulation and technological innovation. Banks have been made safer, but also less pivotal. Risk has been pushed into shadow banks and investment funds. And although the new system is more decentralised, it still relies on transactions being channelled through a few nodes that could be overwhelmed by volatility. The financial system may be in better shape than it was in 2008, but it faces a stern test.Zanny Minton Beddoes Editor-In-Chief The Economist

Friend of the Sea and Friend of the Earth Launches Petition to Ban China’s Wildlife Food Markets

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 5 febbraio 2020

Friend of the Earth and Friend of the Sea, the preeminent worldwide food certifications have launched a petition asking the Chinese government to permanently close markets that sell wildlife for food. The petition is a response both to the recent outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus, which has been traced to China’s wildlife markets, and the over all environmental damage these markets are causing. China has announced a temporary, immediate ban on wild animal trading, but Friend of the Earth and Friend of the Sea would like to see the ban become permanent.“We applaud China’s decision to place a short-term ban wildlife trading, but the ban should be forever,” said Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Earth. “The ban should include not only wet markets, but supermarkets restaurants and e-commerce platforms. Wild animals belong in nature.” The NGO plans to send all the signatures to the Chinese government with the suggestion that they become the world’s new wildlife conservation leader.
As of January 30, 2020, more than 8124 cases of the Wuhan Coranavirus have been confirmed in China, causing more than 171 deaths. The virus is becoming a worldwide threat as dozens of confirmed cases arise in 14 places outside of mainland China, including at least five in the US, according to CNN. The Coronavirus is a zoonotic disease that can be transmitted from animals to human. The outbreak comes probably from a snake and has been traced to a market in Wuhan known for selling wild animals for consumptions including dogs, turtles, bats, snakes, giant salamander, crocodiles, hedgehogs and marmots.China is the world’s largest market for wildlife products, which is estimated to be a $20 billion global enterprise—fourth insize only after the illegal drug trade, human smuggling and illegal weapons trafficking. Bray added, “Wildlife trafficking undermines human security in resource-dependent local communities, severely harms the way of life of indigenous people and causes substantial economic losses.”If these wildlife markets persist, we will continue to face heightened risks from emerging new lethal viruses and pandemic spread.

Australia and New Zealand Data Protection as a Service Markets, 2018 & 2019-2027

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 novembre 2019

The Australia and New Zealand data protection as a service market accounted for US$ 159.2 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 2244.8 Mn by 2027, thereby registering an attractive CAGR growth rate of 34.3% from 2019 to 2027.Factors such as stringent data protection regulations for information security and increasing need for data backups and archives are propelling the growth of data protection as a service market. However, High incurrence of costs of data protection service is hindering the data protection as a service market growth to a certain extent. Globally, organizations are investing in advanced technologies and solutions to upgrade businesses. They are driven by the factors which include growing new data streams, increase the need for storage, flexible IT consumption models, rising cyber security threats & compliance, among others. With the exponential data growth in the organization and deployment of advanced technology, there is a requirement of the data backup systems.Also, for every data record or object created in the organization, it needs a backup system for operational data loss prevention, archiving for long term retention to ensure regulatory compliance, disaster recovery, and remote applications for business continuity. Therefore, in the organization, there is a continuous requirement for the data backups and archives, as the data loss can lead to revenue loss, lawsuits, privacy violations, and other setbacks. The implementation of data protection as a service would support organizations for data backup and archives, and it offers a unified approach to data protection and fast recovery & agile restoration.
Convergence is one of the key aspects that has developed the DPaaS industry. It comprises the software-defined storage, networking services, hardware abstraction, central orchestration, as well as, geographically distributed architecture that deliver the IT infrastructure, and make it effective and agile. Further, for data backup and archive, data protection as a service can scale data integrity as well as retention of data for long periods, and this is important for the current organization for the protection of data. This is highly influencing the growth of data protection as a service market.

Microinsurance, Financial Inclusion Gain Traction in Emerging Markets

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 7 novembre 2019

Access to insurance is a key component of financial stability. Support of financial inclusion has taken a greater hold globally as more major insurers and reinsurers incorporate dedicated microinsurance operations, socially minded impact investors fund microcredit and microinsurance programs in developing countries and governments try to extend insurance access to lower-income citizens.
A new Best’s Special Report, “Microinsurance, Financial Inclusion Gain Traction in Emerging Markets,” demonstrates that the movement has reached a crescendo after a century of development. Sustainable microinsurance programs are challenging to create but never has there been a time when there has been so much effort on every level — community, national and global — to see these efforts to successful execution. Scale is the key to profitability in the microinsurance sector targeting lower income individuals, along with a high degree of innovation. To be more cost-efficient, motivated individuals and organizations have been seeking ways to eliminate frictions found in traditional insurance, and with much trial and error, some have enabled a more successful supply of microinsurance.Examples of these efforts include index-based insurance streamlines claims processing, which use measurable indices, like rainfall, to pay out claims automatically to entire policyholder groups. Other microinsurance programs allow people with irregular income streams to pay premiums when the money is available. Mass distribution techniques like mobile phones that reach millions eliminate the need for forms and the exclusions that are common in traditional plans. The distribution of microinsurance requires a different approach from traditional insurance. Including microinsurance as part of cooperative or mutual arrangement also has shown significant success.More offerings from private-sector organizations can add to this product’s sustainability. However, profits margins typically are thin, and the efficiencies, proportional regulation and scale must be carefully internalized and calibrated. For large insurers with the capital to take a loss while establishing systems and infrastructure, the benefit of building brand recognition among an emerging customer base may provide incentive to enter the market. AM Best also views the microinsurance market as a laboratory for innovation—the strategies developed to improve efficiency in these markets often can be applied to more traditional markets as a form of reverse innovation.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 27 agosto 2019

DP World, UAE Region, the leading trade enabler, and Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) showcased their capabilities and offerings at the FoodPro exhibition and conference organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in Chennai to support and facilitate Indian Food & Beverage (F&B) exports. The DP World team engaged with F&B companies looking to expand their businesses outside of India and familiarised them with strategic solutions on offer, including plug-and-play platforms, end-to-end supply chain solutions, value-added services, and an investment platform.Over the past decades, Dubai has developed a made-for-trade ecosystem that offers a robust infrastructure for global businesses and a transparent regulatory environment conducive to success. Through its strategic location and excellent multimodal connectivity, Dubai seamlessly connects India’s exports to new frontiers.With bilateral trade between India and the UAE surpassing $60 billion in 2018 and poised to grow exponentially, the economic relationship between the countries has strengthened. India is now the second-largest trading partner of the UAE behind China. In support of this activity, Jebel Ali Port and Jafza provide a multimodal trade, logistics, and industrial hub that further enhances the facility’s role as India’s gateway to the world by facilitating F&B exports and opening new markets for Indian traders. The Jebel Ali hub is the preferred commercial gateway to a region of 3.5 billion people. This access sustains Dubai’s position as the largest re-export centre for food products, catering to a vast import-dependent region from the GCC to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), East Africa and Subcontinent markets.Complementing the port facility is Jafza’s dedicated food and beverage cluster, spreading over 1.2 million square metres, and including 467 businesses from 66 countries, employing more than 5,880 people. Jafza also offers industry-specific value-added services, including packaging, storage, bagging and sorting, stuffing, palletising, and transportation.
The Free Zone also provides bonded and non-bonded zones supporting farm-to-shelf supply chain activities, common user facilities for tea and coffee trading and processing as well as sugar, grains, pulses, meat, edible oil, seeds, and other ready-to-consume food items. It is also home to the world’s largest port-based sugar refinery.As part of its “India-UAE Bridge” initiative, DP World, UAE Region, along with CII, organised a seminar on the eve of the 13th edition of “Foodpro,” India’s largest F&B event, to highlight the Dubai-based trade enabler’s efforts to integrate its assets in both countries.

A Tale of Two Labor Markets

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 8 agosto 2018

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/. Comment on U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation Report By Gad Levanon, Chief Economist, North America, The Conference Board. While employment growth was just 157,000 in July, there were large upward revisions to the previous two months, and the overall trend remains strong. The labor market is tightening with the unemployment rate declining by 0.1 percentage points and the broader U6 measure dropping by 0.3 percentage points.Much of the strength is coming from strong job growth in blue-collar industries like manufacturing and construction. In the past 12 months, the unemployment rate for construction workers declined by 2.1 percentage points, and for transportation and production workers by 1.7 and 1.0 percentage points respectively, versus a very small decline in white-collar occupations. That is in line with wage data by occupation from the employment cost index released last week. The data tells us a story of two labor markets: significant labor shortages for blue-collar workers versus moderate tightness in white-collar jobs.

Catella: Positive outlook for Nordic real estate markets in 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 marzo 2018

Record year with transaction volume of EUR 43.3 billion, increase of international investors, positive market sentiment for 2018.The latest overview of the 2018 Nordic investment markets by Catella Research shows that the economic situation supports the positive trend. With a transaction volume of approx. EUR 43.3 billion (2016: EUR 41.9 billion, 2015: EUR 32.8 billion), more properties were traded in one year than in the past 25 years. EUR 3.4 billion was invested by Nordic investors in European real estate outside of the Nordic countries. The core markets are still in focus of investors but second-tier locations are gaining momentum.More findings for the 12 covered markets: The share of international investors has increased in all countries, in some parts particularly strong. The strongest increase is recorded in Finland with 73% in 2017, compared to 31% in the previous year. Denmark also exceeded the 50%-mark, followed by Norway with 43% and Sweden with 13%.Regarding invested asset classes, a certain degree of heterogeneity can be measured. Investors primarily invested in office properties in Norway and Finland, while residential properties were the most popular asset class in Denmark and Sweden. The share of transacted logistics properties is at a similar level however.
With an average office prime yield of 3.50%, Stockholm is the most expensive office location of the North-European cities. The highest yield is once again recorded in the city of Turku in Finland (7.25%).
A similar picture is seen in the retail yields: the lowest yield here is recorded in Copenhagen (3.25%), followed by Stockholm (3.50%). The yield gap between office and retail properties has also decreased in the Nordics and is currently at 18 base points (4.88% office, 4.70% retail) in the twelve observed markets.
“During the course of the year, we expect stable or slightly increasing office rents in almost all North-European markets”, says Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research at Catella. Current frontrunner with a prime rent of 60.60 €/sqm is Stockholm, the lowest recorded value is found in the city of Odense in Denmark (11.20 €/sqm). “Because of the continuously high demand for office space, a slight decrease of vacancy rates can be expected in most cities”, continues Beyerle.

Catella: Positive outlook for German real estate markets in 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 23 gennaio 2018

catella10Rising rents, falling vacancy rates, residential climbing to third-strongest asset class, retail under pressure.The latest overview of the 2018 German rental and investment markets from Catella Research shows that the economic situation is supporting the positive trend.The nation is in a very good position economically, with a recent correction of the GDP growth forecast to 2.2% by 2019. The boom is becoming more dynamic due to very good consumer conditions and higher exports rates. Expected wage agreements in the coming quarters lead us to believe that the consumption rate in Germany will be at a very high level for the seventh year in a row.For the next four quarters, Catella Research expects a similarly high uptake of office space, even though the strong focus on CBDs until now is shifting towards outskirts/arterial roads/development areas.We expect:
– A significant decline in vacancies due to strong take-up and refurbishment (including repurposing for residential use).
– A slight increase of prime rents in the new-build/first-time occupancy segment (+1.5%) for 2018.
– Excellent economic growth will be apparent in existing properties, where average rents will increase by approximately 2.5% for new contracts or extensions (after refurbishment).
– A slight decrease in transaction volume due to extended due diligence, a shift towards portfolios, and foreign investors causing significant internationalisation of the market.
– By mid-2018 yields will sink to approximately 3.25% in the top 7 markets because of the increasingly competitive position, premium mark-ups for trophy buildings and portfolios becoming the norm.“No question. The socio-economic signs for 2018 could not be better; the quantifiable risks are included in this,” says Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research at Catella. He continues, “No significant interest rate increase is currently expected, but instead an increasingly competitive market in which the quality of the properties is slightly declining. The boom in residential investments will sustain throughout 2018. By the end of the year, retail could lose its traditional second spot in turnover rankings to the residential segment,” Beyerle predicts.Investments in retail properties will come under strong pressure, and Beyerle expects a price correction. Investors are increasingly seeing short-term leases, even in prime locations, and are faced with structurally decreasing footfall, a lack of innovation, and underestimation of consumer digitalisation.

Growth Opportunity Assessment of Healthcare IT Market in France – Forecast to 2021 – Research and Markets

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 31 ottobre 2017

borsaUK, Germany, France and Spain collectively spend more than $6 billion on healthcare information technology (healthcare IT) while regional adoption stands at almost 80%. Healthcare IT markets in these countries are ready to embark upon the next level of digitalisation where providers move from data capturing solutions to those that can derive value from data through improving information sharing, analytics and clinical decision support. France embarked upon the Digital Hospital Strategy as part of its five-year plan (from 2012 to 2017) with the goal of fully digitizing the care delivery system by the end of this period. In spite of a high level of EMR adoption, the country suffers from delays and cost over-runs in comparison to the initial digitalisation plans and intends to rapidly progress towards Stage 5-7 EMRs over the next three years. Integrating care delivery is a key priority for the health system as a whole, which includes developing facets like remote health monitoring, telemedicine, mHealth and IoMT, which enable care delivery outside the hospital. The research found that only a little more than 15% of large hospitals across EU share data beyond their organization. This has been a huge detriment to efficient and productive health data utilization across all countries included in this study. However, with changing care paradigms, such as focus on patient-centricity, innovation in care delivery models, and demand for workflow efficiency, improving health data continuity will be a key goal for both governments and providers over the next five years. As a result, interoperability, and standards development and adoption will be major priorities across health systems.France is also targeting improving collaboration and data sharing between healthcare providers and care settings, especially to enable remote care for the elderly and the chronically ill. Inconsistent implementation of initiatives, such as the Dossier Medical Patient (DMP), for establishment of HCIT infrastructure has resulted in fragmented adoption and created complex data silos. To achieve the goal of improving population health, France will need a more harmonized approach to healthcare digitalisation. The eHealth Strategy 2020 has resulted in a business environment conducive to the growth of eHealth vendors. Business models that demonstrate positive clinical and financial outcomes along with partnerships with key stakeholders will be the key to success.Consumers are playing an increasingly evident role in managing their own health. More than 20% of patients in France use connected devices with a high propensity for using them for chronic disease management. France also showcases an unusually high affinity amongst physicians to advocate use of connected devices to support home monitoring. As a result, telehealth technologies and remote care delivery models will emerge as a key growth opportunity and the government is already working towards establishing a regulatory framework that makes sustainable business models through reimbursements possible in this arena.

Democratic Republic of Congo: Research and Markets

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 24 agosto 2017

congoThe Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) was under a 30-year dictatorship between 1967 and 1997. Since then the country has suffered from several wars and considerable social upheaval. There remain violent conflicts in the eastern part of the country, exacerbated by considerable corruption within the government as well as by ethnic tensions resulting from disputes among and within bordering countries which have spilled over in the DRC itself. These circumstances have made it difficult for the government to extend its control in these regions.The economy is heavily dependent on revenue from the mining sector though much economic activity occurs informally and is not reflected in GDP data. The global economic crisis reduced GDP growth to around 3% in 2009, but it grew steadily in subsequent years, peaking at 9.5% in 2014. Since then, though, GDP has fallen to just over 2%, a decline largely caused by the turbulent security situation. It is expected to remain stable at this level for the next two to three years, largely supported by mining, though the accuracy of monitored economic growth continues to be questionable.

AB InBev results – what do they mean for the brewer

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 5 Maggio 2016

John Colley, a Professor of Practice at Warwick_Business_School_Scarman_road_view who researches mega mergers such as that between AB InBev and SABMiller, has made the following statement:”Beer volumes and earnings both suffered in the first quarter as AB InBev demonstrated why it needs the SABMiller acquisition. Overall beer volumes were down 1.4% and earnings declined due to currency and increased expenses.
“SABMiller will provide growth markets in Africa and South America. AB InBev seem willing to readily part company with acquired brands in the mature markets of North America, Europe and China to appease competition authorities. Whilst AB InBev offers reassurance that the acquisition is on track for the second half of the year there may still be more demands from competition authorities to be met.”If you look at the numbers, volumes declined by 1.2% in the USA partly as a consequence of lost market share.”Brazil beer volumes declined 10% resulting from the economic turmoil there. Chinese volumes also declined by 1.1% as AB InBev remains under pressure.
“However a major positive was the 13% increase in Mexican volumes partly as a response to increased marketing investment. Overall pressure on volumes in difficult and mature markets has resulted in AB InBev increasing selling and marketing expenses by 13.5% to counteract the lack of growth.”AB InBev, despite the decline in earnings, continues to dominate the global beer industry with margins way ahead of their competitors. Following the SABMiller acquisition they will be almost six times the size of the next biggest brewer Heineken.”Unrivalled scale and scope economies together with market power and strong distribution channels and an ability to deliver on acquisitions makes them a formidable business. However further acquisitions in the beer industry may be difficult due to competition issues.”
