The only dark spot in an otherwise robust set of results was costs, which grew by over $1bn or 13 per cent, compared to a 5.8 per cent rise in operating income. Sands said the bank was now engaged in a “war for talent”. The demand for top flight bankers who can speak Cantonese or Mandarin (not to mention the languages of StanChart’s other markets ) is higher than ever, but the supply can’t keep up. That partly explains why the cost to income ratio jumped from 51.3 per cent in 2009 to 55.9 per cent, although investment in new business is also partly responsible. Management expects the ratio to stay flat in 2011 but, as the son of a naval officer, Sands will know that fighting a war is not cheap. We think that costs as a proportion of income will inevitably edge up further in 2011. Take HSBC, in many ways one of StanChart’s closest rivals, which saw its expenses grow by a similar amount to take the cost to income ratio to 55 per cent in 2010. It expects costs to peak in 2011 before falling back to around 52 per cent of income by the end of 2012. That doesn’t mean Sands should take out costs for the sake of it. Investors will have to accept that higher expenses in the medium are a price worth paying for growth. If StanChart wins the war, it will be more than worth it. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Is too much regulation stifling innovation?

first_img Is too much regulation stifling innovation? While a limited understanding of the underlying tech and the consequences of their actions are undoubtedly stifling innovation and forcing operators to rethink entering some dot.country markets, not all the blame can be laid at the regulators’ door, argues Phil Parry of IforiumWhen it comes to Europe’s patchwork regulatory environment, it goes without saying that we’re a million miles away from what has been described as the wild west of the early 2000s.Regulatory bodies such as the GB Gambling Commission, Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), to name just a few, have developed gold standards – and are proving to be excellent examples for other regulators to follow. What we’ve seen in the last 10 years in terms of regulatory developments in Europe has been transformational, with an increasingly secure regulatory environment boding well for the future.However, within both this developed and developing environment, the challenge for today’s operators is to identify the markets that are still profitable while finding ways to negotiate the complex web of rules and specifications required of them.Put simply, the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to European markets can no longer be applied. Developed markets are proving to be an increasingly varied patchwork of regulatory requirements – with those that fall short facing the increasingly big stick of regulators.In less than a year, we’ve seen millions doled out in fines to gaming operators because their catalogues of games, along with bonusing platforms and AML procedures simply haven’t met their myriad requirements. Of course, ensuring stringent regulatory compliance while delivering a seamless player experience has always been a balancing act, but looking to 2020, it is the speed of regulatory change that is going to leave operators out of pocket when they fail to keep up.Sweden’s regulatory fallout is a potential sign of things to come if operators cannot tailor their offering to a market’s regulatory needs, and it’s a good time to ask at what point regulation begins to stifle industry innovation. We’ve strived hard as an industry over the last decade to begin putting together the foundations of a fully globalised operation. None more so than on the supplier side, but a pressing concern is beginning to emerge, and the point at which suppliers and operators start actively avoiding markets that are deemed ‘over-regulated’ is going to become a real issue. The consequence of suppliers starting to localise their operations and develop games targeted only towards specific markets to avoid the regulatory stick may come sooner than you think. We’ve already seen this happen outside of our industry in the energy and banking sectors, which are now moving at a glacial pace.In a corporate world of limited talent and resources, strict regulations mean resource allocation to integration and the status quo rather than innovation and creation, which risks setting us back years.The Flutter Entertainment and the Stars Group merger provides the perfect example of this. Tightening gambling regulation contributed to resource allocation towards consolidation rather than innovation, with both looking to hedge their exposure via a co-opted offering. Of course, regulation is certainly necessary when it comes to player protection and fair competition.  However, beyond this, the detrimental effects of over-zealous regulators who have very little understanding of the technology and the consequences of their actions are a problem that looks to be very real.We’ve seen very little real innovation in recent years since the days of mobile in-play betting and ‘cash-out’, and if current trends continue, the majority of ‘industry innovation’ we currently see occupy the headlines risks being little more than window dressing. So, where do we go from here? For a start, we need to see better communicative efforts coming from newly regulated markets. Sweden illustrates this point well. In six months, we went from Sweden’s re-regulated market being prophesised by many to be the highlight of 2019 to a very different outlook.While it may seem obvious that the Swedish Gambling Authority (SGA) needed to create a marketplace of trust in a newly regulated territory, in hindsight they have arguably done the opposite due to a lack of clarity on regulations.This trend needs to change, and fast. If regulators want to ensure that operators and suppliers can keep up with their ever-changing rulebook, they need to provide more clarity and ensure that lessons are learned.The SGA would do well to take a look at regulators who have taken a pragmatic and transparent stance with operators. Providing clear guidelines and sensible tax levels, such as their neighbours in Denmark have done, would be a very good start. However, the industry itself cannot simply lay fault at the regulators’ door, we must also look at ourselves as the balance is wrong. Communication works in two ways, and it’s imperative we come together as an industry in a more collaborative and organised fashion to pro-actively work with regulators to build the right frameworks.At this point in time, we lack an industry body that can actively contribute to the regulatory process, and we’d do well to have one. Not only when it comes to communicating constructively, but also by contributing to building a consistent regulatory foundation for operators and suppliers alike.Get it right, and we’ll be able to free up far more resources towards developing what this industry needs rather than maintaining the status quo. Innovation comes when you have the freedom to focus on it, and in my view – change can’t come fast enough.

The FTSE 100 has crashed, and some of its members have already announced dividend cuts or postponements.Meanwhile, interest rates have fallen. Cash savings and bonds now offer relatively disappointing income returns.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, there could be many opportunities to generate a passive income from high-quality FTSE 100 stocks. If you buy companies with solid balance sheets and affordable dividends, you may be able to build a growing income stream via a tax-efficient account such as an ISA.Dividend opportunitiesThe FTSE 100’s dividend yield has spiked to over 6%, its highest on record. This suggests investors may be expecting dividends to be cut at a sizeable number of the index’s constituents.One way investors can potentially overcome this threat is to buy stocks with highly affordable dividends and defensive business models. A company whose net profit covers its dividend payments many times over may be less likely to reduce its dividends. That is even if its profitability comes under severe pressure in the near term.Likewise, a business with defensive characteristics may not experience a marked drop in its profitability. This may make a dividend cut less likely. And companies such as those operating in the healthcare and utility sectors are obvious examples.Moreover, buying businesses with solid balance sheets and sensible growth strategies could be a sound move. They may even be able to grow their dividends, rather than reduce them.Relative appealSince the FTSE 100 currently has a generous yield, its relative appeal seems to be high for income investors. As mentioned, interest rates have fallen to their lowest ever level. Their prospect of rising rapidly over the coming years now seems to be limited. That is because the Bank of England may wish to provide support to any upcoming economic recovery. This may mean that bonds and cash fail to offer income returns that can keep pace with inflation. And your spending power would be reduced as a result.Similarly, the appeal of buy-to-let investment may be relatively low at the present time. Tax changes, affordability issues and concerns about the prospects for the economy may weigh on income returns across the sector.As such, with the FTSE 100 having a strong track record of recovery, it could offer the most appealing income investing opportunity among mainstream assets. The cost of buying a diverse range of shares has fallen in recent years, which could make it easier for more investors to build an income portfolio.Doing so may not produce stunning returns in the short run should the market crash continue. But over the long run it could be the most attractive means of generating a passive income from your capital. Enter Your Email Address Investing for income?

Pacific Islanders combined war dance – Siva Tau

first_imgFriday Nov 7, 2008 Pacific Islanders combined war dance – Siva Tau England gets the Martin Johnson coaching era under way at Twickenham on Saturday with a mouth watering clash against the touring Pacific Islanders team. It will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts, as the combined Fiji, Samoa, and Tongan side comprises of top notch talent who have the ability to turn a game on its head.While England will be looking to build continuity and combinations ahead of three weekends of massive Test matches, the Pacific Islanders will as always, be out to prove what a force they can be.Theyve picked a strong side, and with the privilege of having the captains of each of the three nations, theyll have plenty of experience and leadership to call on if the game goes down to the wire.With experience playing in France and the UK, the Pacific Islanders backline contains a whos who of star performers from both the Guinness Premiership and the Top 14. Names like Delasau, Rabeni, Mapasua, Tagicakibau, and Ratuvou all have the finishing ability to snap up the smallest of chances afforded to them.The forwards read pretty similarly as theres experience all round. The hard hitting loose trio in particular will be out to intimidate and leave their mark as the side go in search of a historic first win at Twickenham.One of the features of the match will be pre kick off as well see the fascinating Siva Tau performed as a challenge to the opponents. It comprises of elements of the Fijian Cibi, the Samoan Siva Tau, and the Tongan Sipi Tau.This short clip illustrates nicely how the three traditional war dances have been combined specifically for the Pacific Islanders a side that will be looking to spring an upset or two over the next few weeks.

The south facing facade is made up of large darkening sliding panels that can stay open, half closed or completely closed; the panels liven up the building by providing an infinite combination of lines, geometric and poetic relationships, which in turn act as a direct witness of the seasons, of light, of the changing weather and as a symbol of introversion.Save this picture!First Floor PlanWith an orientation of 18° toward west the house exploits to the best the natural contributions that, because of the geometry of the porch, of the ample surfaces south glass door and of the flowing obscuring, they anticipate the opening to the “winter sun” and the protection from the “afternoon summer sun.” The study about the solar axonometries has allowed, therefore, to opportunely appraise the incidence of the sun on the wrap and get into proportion the fixed screenings of the vertical settis and the horizontal shutters and the mobile screenings of the flowing pannels.Save this picture!© Kai-Uwe Schulte-BunertThe combination of some characters of the agricultural houses they are proposed through a reason euclidea, that in the key form-function, distills elements as the “porta morta” (passing space in the residence with scope of ventilation), the “sporto di gronda” (coverage’s extension for protection of the vertical masonries) and the “portico” (integrated coverage or juxtaposed for the protection of open and external spaces of the building).Save this picture!© Kai-Uwe Schulte-BunertThe residence has a structure in portant walls (smaller presence of thermal bridges), constituted by bricks with pores, of 38cm, coupled to a layer of coat insulator on the external side of 10cm, the attics are made of tiles and concrete with riddles in reinforced concrete, coibentate and separated while the coverage had a layer of 22cm of isolation, that is coupled to a coverage mantle in corrugate iron, draining, connected to a system that pick up the rain water.
