Standard Chartered

first_img THERE’S something that doesn’t ring quite true about Standard Chartered’s insistence that it is tapping shareholders for £3bn to boost its capital buffers. Management is adamant that cash won’t be used for acquisitions, but we’re not so sure. With a core Tier 1 capital ratio of nine per cent at the end of June, its capital levels are pretty solid.It’s true that some local private sector banks in Hong Kong, India and Singapore are better prepared for Basel III (which calls for a Tier 1 of seven), with capital ratios nearer the 11 or 12 mark. But even if it does want to improve its capital position, this is an overly cautious move: it has three years to comply with the new regulations from the Bank of International Settlements, and could easily limit the dividend slightly or marginally scale back investment. Then there’s the timing: just as rumours that JP Morgan is about to buy Standard Chartered start to take on a life of their own, the latter announces a shock rights issue. Coincidence? Perhaps. But £3bn would enable Standard Chartered to bulk up with a series of bolt-on acquisitions, employing the so-called “fat man” defence and repelling any unwanted advances. We expect Standard Chartered to hit the acquisition trail in the near future. Watch this space.

I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.Photoreporter James NachtweyCreated by the advertising agency BETC (Production Stink et Owen Trevor, Director), this video highlights the urgency of supporting photoreporters, without whom we would never know the realities of war.Let’s support those who risk their lives every day to keep us informed and provide us with independent images that are very different from the official ones served up by governments.There are the official images. And there is the reality. Photoreporters are heroes. They are men and women who put their life on the line every day.The craft has lost 40 percent of its personnel in the past 15 years. Supporting them is really urgent. Thanks to them, newspapers manage to publish reportage photos of great quality. New festivals enable photoreporters to continue working independently and to experience the public’s interest, which proves that the demand is there.Let’s support photoreporters, so that they are able to work in way that provides a vision of the world that is nuanced, human and complex, one that makes a debate possible.Let’s support those who show us what the official images don’t show. <span id=”selection-marker-1″ class=”redactor-selection-marker”></span> January 19, 2016 – Updated on March 25, 2016 “War reporters” – RSF’s new video campaign Campaignslast_img read more

How Widespread Is Negative Equity?

According to Zillow’s Negative Equity Report, that share hit 9.1 percent in Q4 2017.It’s not all good news, however. Zillow reports that 4.4 million American homeowners still remain underwater on their mortgages. Of those, approximately 713,000 owe more than twice the value of their homes. In Detroit, Michigan, 25.4 percent of homeowners in negative equity still owe at least double the value of their home. That works out to around 22,000 homeowners.Nor does this just affect the homeowners and lenders directly involved. As Zillow’s statement explains, “Negative equity acts as a drag on the overall housing market, extending beyond homeowners who are underwater. Low inventory is one of the main factors in driving home values higher, as demand from millennials—the largest group of homebuyers—exceeds the available supply. Underwater homeowners are contributing to this shortage, holding on to their homes instead of selling for a loss.”On a nationwide scale, 15.4 percent of homeowners have some level of equity in their homes, “but likely not enough to sell and comfortably use the proceeds for a down payment on another home,” according to Zillow. Factoring in those homeowners, the nationwide “effective” negative equity rate hits 24.6 percent.Of the metros evaluated by Zillow, Virginia Beach, Virginia, features the highest negative equity rate at 16.7 percent, with an effective negative equity rate of 44.5 percent. Zillow reports that 49,944 homes in Virginia Beach are in negative equity.”For much of the country the Great Recession is an increasingly distant memory—the American economy is booming once again and markets are now shifting their gaze to future downturn risks,” said Zillow Senior Economist Aaron Terrazas. “But scattered in neighborhoods across the country, the legacy of the mid-2000s housing bubble and bust lingers among the millions of Americans still underwater on their mortgages, trapped in their homes with no easy options to regain equity other than waiting. Their struggles mean there are fewer homes on the market for homebuyers today. In corners of the country where home values have been stagnant in recent years, recent homebuyers can easily fall underwater, particularly those who buy with small down payments.”To see the rest of Zillow’s data on nationwide negative equity, click here.
