He’s now on a year’s sabbatical leave, though RBS insists he will be returning in a “new role” once he comes back to the City in 12 months’ time.Yet his departure will be a hammer blow to the bank, which has struggled to keep its key staff amid increasingly vehement attacks on pay and a tide of public anger against it in the wake of its state bailout.“Barnes really is one of the best in the business,” an FX chum tells me. “Every bank wants a piece of him and his departure, from a taxpayer’s point of view, is a nightmare.”Crikey. Here’s hoping that his replacement – Tim Carrington, who moves over from Canada’s CIBC World Markets to take up the role – is ready to step up to the plate.SINK OR SWIMIt’s always somewhat disconcerting to see the lords of finance taking part in run-of-the-mill social events like the rest of us, which explains the furore over Goldman Sachs boss Lloyd Blankfein’s latest outing at the weekend.The New York Observer reports that Blankfein spent a gruelling hour in the swimming pool at the Southampton Bath and Tennis Club competing in a “charity swim-a-thon” – which he subsequently won, storming through an impressive 134 laps in 60 minutes. (The banking mogul “is said to have used an excellent flip-turn to his advantage”, apparently.)If he’s trying to smooth over his image in the eyes of the public, this seems to be a pretty good way of going about it. Next stop: egg-and-spoon races at the local fete…FAMILY TREEHow’s this for an unusual coincidence? Simon Parker Bowles – the former brother-in-law to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – set up his second Green’s venture in the City just last year, in the old Lloyds banking hall on Cornhill.But the restaurateur tells me that he was trawling through his family tree while on holiday recently when he discovered that he’s not the first Parker Bowles to occupy the premises. Apparently, back in the 1720s, a distant ancestor – seven generations Simon’s senior – set up a printing shop in the Mercer’s Hall on Cheapside. But in 1734, he moved to Black Horse House at 14 Cornhill – the very same building into which Lloyds bank later moved and took its black horse moniker from a mosaic laid into the floor, which is still there today. It’s certainly a small world.RELATIONSHIP MANUniversal Music’s co-chief executive Lucian Grainge may have relocated over to the US, but it’s clearly not hindered his ability to pull in superstars from the UK to the record label.Ex-Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox – who signed with Universal this week and plans to release her new album, “A Christmas Cornucopia”, in November – has been friends with Grainge for almost three decades. Back then, at RCA Music, he signed the Eurythmics to a deal and secured his first US number one success as a published with “Sweet Dreams”.Not that it comes as a surprise, mind – Grainge’s leaving do at the Mandarin Oriental in June drew guests from Amy Winehouse and The Killers to Sir Bob Geldof, WPP boss Sir Martin Sorrell and Lord Mandelson.NAME GAMEAnother instalment in this column’s occasional series of weird and wonderful names from the City. A quick pootle about the internet yesterday brought The Capitalist across a website for MLROs.com, a forum for the anti-money laundering and financial crime practitioner community, of all things.And the name of its creator, who founded the network after working in compliance at Abbey Life, Royal Bank of Scotland and NIBC Bank, among others? Ben Hur.PING PONG CHALLENGEPing pong enthusiasts in the City should get themselves down to Corney & Barrow at Fleet Place next week, where pairs from the top firms in the Square Mile are going to be battling it out on the table tennis table.The London Ping Pong Company – set up by former Clifford Chance lawyer Andrew Essa and his business partner Tim Oberg – has already secured team entries from the likes of the London Stock Exchange, Goldman, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Accenture and BT.The prize for fighting your way to the top against 63 other competitors is a relatively measly £150 – but then again, these things are all about the kudos, as we all know.Call 0207 265 2518 to get your names on the list.MUSICAL CHAIRSWhat better way to end than with the small-cap tittle-tattle of the week, courtesy – as usual – of troubled brokerage Astaire Securities.Word is that Paul Compton, the former hedge fund manager who’s now at the helm of WH Ireland, is particularly interested in a team of Astaire staffers to help him in his new role putting the firm back on track. Which comes, naturally, after discussions over a tie-up between Astaire and WH Ireland collapsed just last year.Watch this space. last_img read more

Visa hit by web protest

first_img Show Comments ▼ Share Wednesday 8 December 2010 9:29 pm whatsapp KCS-content SUPPORTERS of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks brought down several payment processing websites yesterday and threatened to attack other financial services. Visa’s website was suspended and Mastercard’s online services were malfunctioning yesterday after activist group Anonymous attacked the websites as revenge for the companies blocking Wikileaks transactions earlier in the week. Mastercard said yesterday: “Our core processing capabilities have not been compromised and cardholder account data has not been placed at risk. While we have seen limited interruption in some web-based services, cardholders can continue to use their cards for secure transactions globally.”Visa said its homepage was “experiencing heavier than normal traffic”.A group called Anonymous, which coordinated the attacks via Twitter with the message “FIRE FIRE FIRE”, has since seen its own website and Twitter account disabled. The group released a statement claiming it overwhelmed the financial websites’ servers with fake visits. It named Amazon, Paypal and EveryDNS as other targets for attacks, after they prevented Wikileaks from using services.Meanwhile, IT company Datacell threatened Visa and Mastercard with legal action yesterday, claiming the firms’ stance on Wikileaks was damaging its business. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is set to remain in UK police custody until a court hearing on 14 December, after he was detained on Tuesday under a Swedish arrest warrant for alleged sexual offences. The Wikileaks webpage was not functioning last night, though the 250,000 leaked diplomatic papers remained available on mirror sites.

Culture and media secretary Jeremy Hunt will decide in the coming weeks whether a full Competition Commission probe should be launched.One way of paving the way for a deal could be for News Corp to set up an independent body to run Sky News. City A.M. understands no official contact has been made with Hunt but that senior figures at News Corp are privately considering such a concession in order to secure the acquisition.It is also understood News Corp has objected to several findings in the Ofcom report into the bid, namely that it could pose a threat to media plurality. News Corp declined to comment.Media analyst Claire Enders said it is doubtful News Corp would offer concessions at this stage. She said: “Unless it is absolutely demanded, it makes no sense for News Corp to offer up Sky News.

Profits surge at Starbucks

first_imgWednesday 26 January 2011 8:55 pm Show Comments ▼ Profits surge at Starbucks whatsapp Share COFFEE giant Starbucks posted a 35 per cent rise in operating income yesterday, which nevertheless fell short of analyst forecasts for the full-year as the rising cost of coffee continued to dent margins. The world’s largest coffee chain has seen wholesale coffee prices increase by nearly three-quarters since last summer – due to poor weather, fears over crop failure and rising global demand. The firm reported an operating income of $501.9m (£315m) for the three months to 2 January, up from $370.9m a year earlier. Earnings per share stood at 45 cents, compared with 33 cents last year. Christmas trading, traditionally a strong period for Starbucks, saw a five per cent rise in international sales. The firm hopes to continue its aggressive expansion by opening 500 new stores in 2011, 400 of which will be outside the US. Starbucks shares, which have risen 47 per cent in the last year, lost two per cent in after-hours trading following the results announcement after the New York closing bell. “The strong momentum in our global business in fiscal 2011 positions us to deliver 15 to 20 per cent earnings per share growth compared to last year’s results, and to reaffirm our 2011 guidance despite dramatically higher coffee costs,” said chief financial officer Troy Alstead. Chief executive Howard Schultz credited some of the earnings jump to Starbucks’ foray into pre-packaged instant coffee, which grew 12 per cent in the period and now makes up six per cent of revenue. whatsappcenter_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search Ads Tags: NULL Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof KCS-content last_img read more

BG Group offsets production drop with higher gas prices

first_img GAS explorer BG Group beat analyst forecasts yesterday with a 13 per cent rise in fourth-quarter earnings, with higher gas and oil prices offsetting a dip in production. Earnings for the last three months of 2010 rose 13 per cent to $1.06bn, (£659m) though pre-tax profit fell 2.7 per cent to $1.45bn on last year, including charges from disposals and impairments. Revenues rose one per cent to $4.3bn, supporting an 11 per cent rise for the year to $17.2bn. Production volumes fell slightly short of forecasts, falling two per cent in the quarter to 60.7m barrels of oil equivalent, but a 22 per cent rise in global gas prices more than made up for the drop. The firm has raised its full-year dividend by 10 per cent to 21.6 cents per share and repeated its goal to grow by six to eight per cent a year until 2020 after raising estimates for its US shale gas and Brazilian explorations. Morgan Stanley said: “Investors can focus on what is again an exceptionally positive strategy update… targets and resource numbers have not just been reiterated, but in many cases raised by some margin.”BG shares rose 2.1 per cent to 1,470p. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Yet the degree of volatility still shocked analysts and comes as an unwelcome knock to the US recovery.“I’d view this as one data point, and a data point that is volatile from week to week,” said Brian Lazorishak of Chase Investment Counsel in Virginia.“However, one of the positives we’ve had in the past year is continued, albeit slow, improvement in the jobs picture, so any setback there will be discouraging.”Meanwhile, inflationary pressures were revealed in a separate data release from the bureau of labour statistics. Core producer prices – which do not include food or energy components – rose 0.3 per cent in March, compared to February. The jump pushed the annualised rate of core price inflation to 1.9 per cent, the largest gain since August 2009.“Yet the rise in core prices was all concentrated in light truck prices,” said economist Brian Jones of Societe Generale in New York. “It could be due to seasonal adjustments and they tend to be volatile. It could even be a pickup in demand.”The headline producer price index number showed a 0.7 per cent rise in prices on the month, largely driven by energy prices, which surged by 2.6 per cent.Compared to March last year, the price of finished goods was up 5.8 per cent.
