Bank lender Takefuji files for bankruptcy

By on September 4, 2021

first_img TAKEFUJI said it filed for bankruptcy yesterday owing $5.1bn (£3.2bn), making it the biggest Japanese consumer lender to fail since a court ruling in 2006 forced the industry to repay borrowers for excessive interest charges.Takefuji, which had been considered at risk of failing as it lacked the financial backing of a big Japanese bank, said it had filed with a Tokyo court for protection from creditors, citing interest reimbursements, tighter lending rules and harsh competition.The lender’s president, Akira Kiyokawa, and executive vice president Takeru Takei, son of the company’s founder Yasuo Takei, resigned following the court filing. Director Junichi Yoshida, replaces Kiyokawa as Takefuji’s boss.“We made the decision to file because we were clearly in a situation were we were going to default,” Yoshida said at a press briefing in Tokyo. “It became clear we could not go on,” he added.Takefuji and other consumer lenders have struggled to survive after Japanese courts ruled in 2006 that they had charged too much interest and had to repay borrowers. whatsapp whatsapp Tuesday 28 September 2010 10:48 pm Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily 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 ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ Bank lender Takefuji files for bankruptcy Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Vickers rules out break-up

By on

first_img Vickers rules out break-up Share Sunday 23 January 2011 11:06 pm KCS-content SIR John Vickers, chair of the Independent Commission on Banking (ICB), ruled out breaking up the financial industry into “narrow banks” on Saturday in his first official speech since the commission was convened.But Vickers’ speech, which gave a glimpse of the ICB’s thinking three months before its preliminary report is due out, did discuss how to “ring-fence the retail banking activities of systemically-important institutions” from their wholesale activities.Despite dismissing the idea of “narrow banks”, whereby banks with retail deposits are largely banned from lending, Vickers emphasised that “the policy challenges for retail and investment banking are somewhat different”. He analysed different ways of insulating retail consumers from a possible bank failure on the basis that “retail customers have no effective alternatives to their banks for vital financial services”. The speech signalled that the ICB is considering “forms of separation” between retail and wholesale banking operations, including subsidiarisation, in which retail and investment banks operate separately but remain legally under the same ownership.Vickers also commented on the problem of implied government guarantees for banks that are “too big to fail”. “This distortion… should be neutralised or contained,” he said, adding: “Credible resolution would seem to require at least some form of separability (between retail and wholesale).”But he also sounded a warning on “the unintended consequence” of some current regulations, including tax incentives that make debt a more attractive funding option than equity.SIR JOHN VICKERSCHAIR, ICBSINCE  leaving a two-year post at Shell as a financial analyst, Sir John Vickers had spent most of his career in academia before moving into economic policy-making.He is a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford and was an economics professor at the university for 12 years until he went on leave to become the Bank of England’s chief economist in 1998.After two years at the BoE, he moved to become director general of the Office of Fair Trading and from 2007 to last year, he was president of the Royal Economic Society.While head of the OFT, he oversaw an investigation of charges by store card providers and called for an inquiry into LSE’s proposed merger with Euronext. He has spent much of his career studying the economics of competition and regulation, writing extensively on patent law, price signalling and vertical markets.He is now charged with designing the basis of a new regulatory framework for the entire UK banking industry.Juliet SamuelTIME LINE | INDEPENDENT COMMISSION ON BANKING● 16 June 2010Chancellor George Osborne announced the commission’s creation under the chairmanship of Sir John Vickers. Its other members are: Clare Spottiswoode, Martin Taylor, Bill Winters and Martin Woolf.● 9 July 2010The commission holds the first of its meetings, with its minutes published regularly.● 24 September 2010The ICB publishes a consultation paper and asks for submissions of evidence. It highlights the commission’s priority as producing regulations to promote financial stability and competition while not overly discouraging lending and economic growth.● November-December 2010The commission goes on a “roadshow” of public events to gauge popular opinion, holding five meetings: two in London and one each in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Leeds. The panellists and participants include representatives from the UK’s major banks and small businesses. It also holds meetings with banks and stays in regular communication with them through the period.● 22 January 2011In his first public speech as chair of the commission, delivered at the London Business School, Vickers outlines the pros and cons of separating retail banking activities from wholesale and rules out mandating “narrow banks” that are heavily restricted in their activities. He also emphasises the other regulatory changes taking place globally, such as through Basel III and the European Commission.● April 2011The commission is due to publish a preliminary report outlining its thoughts so far. It plans another roadshow of events and will solicit further feedback from banks after the paper’s publication.● April 2011The commission will publish its recommendations. The final decision as to their implementation lies with Chancellor George Osborne and business secretary Vince Cable.KEYPOINTS | SIR JOHN VICKERS’ SPEECH● Scope of the inquiryVickers made clear that financial stability will be just as important to the commission as competitiveness, focusing particularly on “structural reform”: whether or how to separate retail and wholesale banking. However, he was careful to place the ICB’s work in the context of international regulations on capital (particularly Basel III) and the takeover of failing institutions (to be addressed by the EU). And he ruled out broader recommendations on perverse incentives created by the tax system, despite their effect on financial stability.● “Narrow” banksHe ruled out the creation of “narrow banks” with nothing but vanilla retail functions as a solution to the “too big to fail” problem, saying: “It is very doubtful that the implicit government guarantee would be confined to narrow banking.” He said that lending would just move elsewhere.● Retail versus wholesale customersHe said that retail and wholesale banking require different policy approaches because retail customers are a largely domestic market and rely more on their banks for vital services. Whereas wholesale customers operate internationally and “generally have greater choice and capacity to look after themselves”. ● Differing capital requirementsHe suggested that one way of separating retail and wholesale risks could be “to ring-fence the retail banking activities of systemically-important institutions” and impose a specific capital requirement on them. But he was sceptical about blunt regulations to separate the two functions.● Senior bondholder debtVickers was keen to pinpoint possible ways of making sure that senior bondholders, as well as equity-holders and junior bondholders, absorb losses when a bank fails. He discussed both convertible contingent bonds (“co-cos”), which turn into equity if a bank’s capital ratio falls too low, and bail-in bonds, which can be turned into equity by regulators if a bank has to be wound up, as possible solutions.

Sevens specialists like Ben Ryan go worldwide

first_imgHe is not the first to pack his truck and pop off to regions new. Mike Friday may be currently sitting on the coaching merry-go-round after leaving his post with Kenya, but he impressed while he was with the East African outfit. Many expected him to slot back into a role with England, but with Simon Amor taking up the role there are options for Friday to continue looking around.Top scorer: Gollings will pass on knowledgeSounds like the old England crew have been getting out there, spreading their tentacles? Well, former captain Andy Vilk is coaching with the Italian national sevens side as well as playing for Calvisano and IRB sevens’ all-time top points scorer Ben Gollings is coaching Sri Lanka while also doing work with the Serevi business, which looks to grow rugby in North America.

(Photo by Ian MacNicol/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS On to pastures new: Ben Ryan keeps his 2016 Olympic dream alive by taking the reigns with Fiji’s sevens sideBy Alan DymockSPREADING GOSPEL is part of modern rugby some would have you believe. With several charities taking the game out East and tiny steps taken all the time to encourage more global participation, the hope is that rugby continues to grow.Sevens is undoubtedly one of the most aggressively expanding sports out there and with the 2016 Rio Olympics looming large the race is on to take the truncated version of the game to farther flung places and always, always there are new ‘markets.’ No wonder, then, that several Brits have taken the game with them around the globe.Playing the exciting way: Fiji entertain in any conditionsThis week it was announced that Ben Ryan will become the new head coach of Fiji sevens on a three-year deal, taking the reigns at one of the most consistently exciting and competitive sides on the HSBC World Sevens Series circuit. Of course the ambitious coach may have one eye on the Olympics, but he has a team capable of taking him there anyway. Then there is Scotland’s Clark Laidlaw, son of Roy Laidlaw and cousin of Greig, has taken his experiences with sevens on the Borders circuit with Jed Forest and used them in his move to the Southern Hemisphere. Laidlaw has recently been linked, unsuccessfully, with roles with the Scotland sevens squad, but he has continued to work as the Wellington Hurricanes skills coach, after initially working with Taranaki.New Zealand may be the reigning Sevens Series champions, but all around them the Brits are having an influence.last_img read more

The House of Chutes-Lavie / Damien Fluchaire & Julien Cogne

By on June 17, 2021

first_imgCopyHouses•Marseille, France France photographs:  D. Fluchaire, P. Terraz , A.RavixPhotographs:  Courtesy of FDC-Studio , D. Fluchaire, P. Terraz , A.RavixSave this picture!© D. FluchaireText description provided by the architects. Witness of the municipality’s undertaking for its districts, the House of Chutes-Lavie is the new equipment for sport and community of the 4th arrondissement of Marseille. The ambition of a social equipment near a sensitive area is wide and ambivalent: if the constraints are those of sustainability, easy upkeep, invulnerability of the equipment against the willful or unintended damages, needs, meanwhile, concern more deeper and more sensitive feelings: those of the consideration, thoughtfulness and respect. In the midst of the organization of the sporting, educational and family life, the neighborhood house therefore has a strong part to play. It’s in this dichotomy that the project draws its essence: the thickness and strength of materials, such as concrete and steel, linked by the contemporary, sensitive, almost delicate vocabulary like a precious jewel. Save this picture!Courtesy of FDC-StudioThese initiatives shine over the entire city and participate in the “living together”. Urban and humans, these two vectors of the city, join and participate in the development of a neighborhood and a city in the making. At Marseille-Provence, European Capital of Culture in 2013 and a candidate for the European Capital of Sport in 2017, the second city of France is definitely looking to the future. Save this picture!© A.RavixLocated in a neighborhood with common architecture and known for its crime, the new construction get along on a large plot with a multipurpose building, a kindergarten and existing outdoor sports ground. The project is on two floors, with 8 offices for local associations and 2 sports hall with changing rooms and storage. The grounds were redesigned to provide parking, a wide playground for children and an available way from the street for disabled person. Pedagogical gardens (non-project) have been developed for the kindergarten to participate in the greening of the land. Save this picture!© D. FluchaireThe monolithic building, designed in shuttered concrete, wants to be rustic and sustainable, but also contemporary and quality: conceived in raw materials, the building in stamped concrete reveals its light texture set, while the stainless steel cladding rig out it in a shiny metal skin with perforations, providing a “vibration” in the chiaroscuro shadows, thus protecting the building from intrusion and solar gains. Save this picture!Courtesy of FDC-StudioSo there is two understanding degrees: First time, the general pattern across the building works under a vegetable pattern inspired by a impressionistic point of view of the breakthrough of pine trees in the middle of Provence. Second time, at the human level, these perforations interpret the pattern of neighborhood plan and put together “symbols” from filled and empty spaces to create a vocabulary of primitive signs, sort of “mystical”code for a building that becomes setting of the social bond so precious. On the underlying theme of man in his environment, this project is a poetic answer to this need of “bunker” equipments.

Attorney will appeal cop’s firing

By on June 2, 2021

first_img Pinterest Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends WhatsApp Local NewsCrime Attorney will appeal cop’s firing Facebook Fired OPD Cpl. Cory Wester’s attorney said he will appeal his termination saying Wester’s actions were in compliance with Odessa Police Department procedures.Wester, who is a well-known OPD officer who survived being shot multiple times in 2015 serving a warrant, was fired this week — an action announced by an OPD press release Wednesday with limited information.Wester was the subject of investigation after an April 27 incident, during which the OPD release stated it was ultimately found he used unreasonable force while arresting a woman at the MCM Grande Hotel and FunDome in east Odessa.“We believe that all of Officer Wester’s actions were in compliance with the policies and procedures in the Odessa Police Department, and that his actions were necessary in this particular situation, given the facts and circumstances,” attorney Terry Boone of Lubbock said.Boone said he was reviewing OPD’s policies on the use of force and its escalation in plans to appeal the termination.Meanwhile, a criminal investigation into the incident has been opened by the Texas Rangers.Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Oscar Villarreal confirmed Thursday that a criminal investigation is ongoing.The OPD release states that when officers attempted to handcuff a woman who was refusing to comply with orders April 27 at the FunDome, Wester struck the woman with a closed fist four to five times, in what was determined by the department to be an unreasonable use of force.Wester was placed on administrative leave April 27, up until his termination Wednesday, said Boone, on behalf of Wester. Wester was placed on leave with pay pending the completion of OPD’s internal investigation.“There has been no indication to us that he will be charged with a criminal offense,” said Boone, who practices with the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas.Boone said that he believed that the woman was treated and released from a medical facility after the incident.Villarreal declined to provide further information Thursday, including information on the extent of the woman’s injuries.“This is an ongoing criminal investigation so we’re not going to release any details at this time,” he said. OPD officials also refused to release details on the extent of the woman’s injuries on Thursday, or on whether she was arrested or charged with an offense, or any other information. The OA has filed a Freedom of Information request for the information.Wester started with OPD on July 1, 2013, and spent his entire career with the OPD on patrol.The OPD press release detailed that the April 27 incident at the MCM FunDome occurred after officers were dispatched over a disturbance, before finding an intoxicated woman. As Wester attempted to handcuff the woman, the release stated, the woman grasped Wester’s wrist tightly causing him pain, before he punched her.The case was given to the Texas Rangers, housed by Texas DPS. Villarreal said DPS would not release any information other than what was in OPD’s press release “until (the Rangers are) done with their investigation.”In 2015, Wester was shot prior to a nine-hour standoff involving OPD in east Odessa.Roy Garza was sentenced to life in prison in 2017 after a jury found him guilty on two charges of attempted capital murder, when it was determined he shot Wester and Sgt. Pedro “Pete” Gonzalez at Clayton Manor Townhomes on Dec. 23, 2015.
