MPs: Europe power grab could hurt UK

first_img THE “sheer scale and pace” of regulatory change in Europe could damage Britain’s financial services industry, a group of influential MPs will warn today. In a report on financial regulation, the Treasury select committee said it was “concerned” about the “ambitious legislative programme taking place at the European level”. The MPs dismissed claims from Michel Barnier, the EU internal markets commissioner, who said he was simply taking his lead from the G20.Barnier supplied the committee with a list of 39 EU initiatives, but the MPs found that only 14 of the proposals were directly related to the G20 agenda. The MPs also expressed alarm that Britain was under-represented on the EU’s three new “super-regulators”, which will regulate banking, the insurance and pensions industry, and markets.“It is important that the UK, with a particularly large share of the financial services activity of the EU, secures appropriate representation on the EU regulatory bodies,” the MPs said in the report. However, career policymakers from Portugal, Italy and the Netherlands have been appointed to run the bodies. And the Treasury select committee’s report warned that political pressure could lead to “inappropriate regulation that will not only damage the UK, but the EU as a whole.” Meanwhile, the report warned the British government not to rush its plans to scrap the discredited tri-partite system of financial regulation.The government has said it will disband the FSA and hand its macro-prudential regulation powers to a unit of the Bank of England by 2012. “The committee is concerned about the risks involved in such an ambitious timetable and the report underlines the importance of getting reform right,” the MPs said. whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 2 February 2011 8:23 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure SolutionBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeBlood Pressure For LifeWhy Doctors May No Longer Prescribe Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure For LifeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definitioncenter_img Share More From Our Partners Porsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapp KCS-content MPs: Europe power grab could hurt UK last_img read more

Pichincha Hybrid Housing Complex / 3dF desarrollos

Three conditions determine the most outstanding characteristics of the project. On the one hand, the project is located in Pichincha, a neighborhood near downtown, traditionally residential, and well known for the presence of numerous houses. On the other hand, the dimensions of the plot, its considerable depth and quasi-trapezoidal form, with a significant width in the bottom. Lastly, building regulations determines a height of 13m. in the front and 6m. in the center of the block, along with the obligation to release 30% of the plot for patios and courtyards. These conditions become favorable to project a housing complex that combines apartments and houses around a set of common spaces, ideal for the development of a community.Save this picture!© Rocio FigueraSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Javier Agustin RojasAs a first strategy, a grid organizes and subdivides the building mass. This grid was though as a modulation for both housing spaces and structure. It is oriented towards the North, taking advantage of the presence of the common courtyard. Naturally, the building’s units rotate, adjusting to the East/West orientation, seeking natural lighting and ventilation; and resolving entrees from public space. Then, some modules are receded in order to generate open and semi-covered spaces: patios, galleries and balconies. The materiality is divided chromatically into 2 large groups, taking the black and white, to accentuate the concept of modular matrix. Finally, a system of mobile sunshades is used as climate control, also providing the correct privacy to and from common spaces.Save this picture!© Rocio FigueraSave this picture!© Javier Agustin RojasThe contact with the public space is solved through a series of subtle recesses, and a hall that functions as a series of concatenated spaces of different level of privacy. Al last, the penetration of the public path towards the common space, articulated through the use of interlocking pavement, seeks to strengthen the connection between both spaces.Save this picture!© Javier Agustin RojasSave this picture!© Javier Agustin RojasProject gallerySee allShow lessDowntown Restaurant / Iván Quizhpe ArquitectosSelected ProjectsVilla Ryysyranta II / PAVE ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Riccheri 357, S2000 Rosario, Santa Fe, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Fundraising income sees lowest growth in six years, but still rising

first_imgFundraising income sees lowest growth in six years, but still rising “The evidence is of constraint and challenge, however, rather than catastrophic collapse or cliff-edge. This year’s results indicate that if charities continue to build on the existing strengths of their fundraising and supporter/ member bases, and to innovate, the public is likely to respond.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The report also shows that growth in total income fell, increasing by 2% compared to the previous year’s 5.4%, and again the lowest rate for six years.Overall, the top 100 UK charities achieved a total income of £9.1 billion in 2015/16, with the top seven remaining in the same order as in the previous year despite some seeing a drop in income.Top performing charities & causesThe top seven were Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support, Oxfam GB, RNLI, Sightsavers International and the British Red Cross Society. Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation remain unchallenged in the top two places that they have now held for the last six years.Faith-based charities dominated the fastest growing fundraisers, with The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Britain the fastest-growing charity in voluntary fundraised income, with an increase of 69% in real terms for 2015, including income from cash and donations. Following it closely was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Great Britain whose voluntary income increased by 67% after a large grant from its parent company in Utah.Animal causes also did well, with Guide Dogs moving up from 20 to 13th place, Cats Protection up from 41 to 33rd, and Battersea Dogs & Cats Home which went up from 60 to 48.Income rise from charitable activitiesStatutory income has increased much less than voluntary income over the past six years according to the report, and its growth rate fell again in 2015/16, while in contrast, charitable activities’ income growth rate rose. The National Trust increased member income by £18m, while CRUK expanded income from cancer research activities by around £7m, and the National Theatre grew the value of charitable activities by £3m in 2015.According to the report, the results indicate that pressures in the funding environment have affected charity growth with little change expected in the immediate future.However, it suggests that for charities that can manage to develop new fundraising techniques or messages that particularly resonate with the public, there is still potential to grow.It states: Advertisement  70 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Melanie May | 24 March 2017 | Newslast_img read more

Michael Bruce raises £50 million from City for Purplebricks USA

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Michael Bruce raises £50 million from City for Purplebricks USA previous nextAgencies & PeopleMichael Bruce raises £50 million from City for Purplebricks USACEO says the company can build a significant business over the pond and take a slice of its £56 billion commission market.Nigel Lewis22nd February 201705,416 Views Hybrid agent Purplebricks has raised funds through a share issue to help the company break into the US market and launch Purplebricks USA.The funding move raised £50 million pounds via AIM by offering shares at £2.20 each, just under its current share price of £2.26p, which rose by 2.1% during late trading yesterday. The placing was over subscribed and raised several million more than Purplebricks had sought.The company says the cash will be used to set up operations in several key US states during the second half of 2017, and estimates the potential commission cake in the US is approximately $70 billion or £56 billion.The move into America follows Purplebricks’ entry into the Australian market in August last year in Melbourne and Brisbane, which by October it had deemed to be a “great success”. The company currently has 437 properties for sale on its Australian website, up from less than a 100 in October.But unlike in Australia, where the estate agency business is very similar to the UK one, in the US properties are sold in a way that could suit the Purplebricks model as many realtors there are self-employed.“We are confident that with our understanding of the US market and our experience from having already launched in two markets Purplebricks can build a significant business in what could be one of the most fascinating and rewarding real estate markets in the world,” says Purplebricks CEO Michael Bruce.“For the realtors we recruit Purplebricks presents an exciting new platform to build scalable, profitable businesses in their own dedicated regions, supported by our strong technology infrastructure and marketing reach.“For US customers, we are seeking to offer a better deal in selling and buying their homes, with a more convenient, transparent and cost effective service.”Michael Bruce Purplebricks America American Realtors USA February 22, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
