Britain’s markets watchdog ups curbs on retail investment firms

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 07:33
LONDON - Britain's markets watchdog curbed activities of twice as many consumer investment firms in the last financial year as the previous year, it said on Tuesday, as it seeks to clamp down on poor financial advice and scams. The restrictions included preventing firms from promoting and selling certain products or providing specific services like advice on defined benefit - or final salary - pension transfers, the Financial Conduct Authority said in a statement. Under Chief Executive Nikhil Rathi, lawmakers have pressured the FCA to make radical changes so it can spot misconduct faster, after a surge in online scams since people were forced to work from home due to COVID-19 restr...

For China’s women, this week’s Congress is unlikely to mean progress

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 07:27
    HONG KONG --- As Xi Jinping consolidates power at China's 20th Communist Party Congress this week, Chinese women are not holding their breath for progress in gender equality. Xi's decade as the party's general secretary has seen the number of women in politics and elite government roles decline and gender gaps in the workforce widen, academics and activists say. Feminist voices have also been muzzled and in recent years, the government has increasingly emphasized the value of traditional roles for women as mothers and carers, they add. Mao Zedong, the founding father of the People's Republic, famously said "women hold up half the sky" and gender equality is ...

Wall Street rallies after BofA results, UK reversal

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 07:27
NEW YORK - U.S. stocks kicked off the trading week on Monday with a rally after Britain reversed course on an economic plan, while Bank of America was the latest financial company to post solid quarterly results, which lifted optimism about the corporate earnings season. Britain named Jeremy Hunt finance minister, and he immediately dispelled many of Prime Minister Liz Truss' fiscal measures, which had unnerved markets in recent weeks. Bank of America Corp shares surged 6.06 percent as the lender's net interest income was buoyed by rising interest rates in the quarter, even though it added $378 million to its loan-loss reserves to buttress against a softening economy. Fellow fin...

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 07:17
MANILA, Philippines --- Drug suspect Juanito Jose Diaz Remulla III, son of Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla, has been getting a lot of "special treatment," Rep. France Castro of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers said in a statement issued on Monday. Castro, a member of the Makabayan bloc in the House of Representatives, cited two incidents. The first incident was the two-day delay in publicizing the younger Remulla, who was arrested last Oct. 11 in Las Pias for importing around P1.3 million worth of kush, a cannabis plant that's illegal in the Philippines. "His father who was in Geneva was even among the first to know [of] the arrest. What transpired during the almos...

  San Francisco, United States ---The United States said Monday that President Xi Jinping was leading China in a more "aggressive" direction but renewed eagerness to cooperate on shared interests as he prepares for a historic third term.

UK’s Truss: Sorry for the mistakes, but I’m sticking around

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 06:31
  LONDON --- Britain's Prime Minister Liz Truss apologized for "mistakes" in her program that caused investor confidence to evaporate and her poll ratings to plunge before nearly all of it was finally shredded on Monday, but said she would not step down. "I do want to accept responsibility and say sorry for the mistakes that have been made," Truss told the BBC. "I wanted to act but to help people with their energy bills to deal with the issue of high taxes, but we went too far and too fast." Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt, who was appointed on Friday after Truss sacked her close ally Kwasi Kwarteng, jettisoned the remaining major planks of her tax-cutting agenda on Mon...

Victolero says no way Hotshots satisfied despite rip-roaring start

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 10/18/2022 - 04:30
Magnolia coach Chito Victolero didn't have to pore over league statistics or revisit old game clips to remind himself just how little superficial winning streaks could be in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). A reminder was right before the Hotshots on Sunday night. The Hotshots played NorthPort at Smart Araneta Coliseum, with Victolero and his charges pocketing a 109-91 decision to stay perfect after five games of the Commissioner's Cup. "I always remind them that we've gone through something like this before, that this is only the start," he told a number of scribes on his way out of the venue by way of a mobility scooter. Recent experience made Victolero talk...
