BNP Paribas Securities Services continues expansion with Swiss division

first_imgBNP Paribas Securities Services, the French bank’s pension scheme custodian business, is to launch a depositary banking service in Switzerland.The move will see the provider focus on depositary services for its asset-owning clients domiciled in Switzerland.This latest expansion follows the launch of a similar service in the UK and the Netherlands.In late 2013, it also confirmed the purchase of Commerzbank’s depositary banking arm, giving it access to the German market. Under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), which came into force in July last year, investment funds not using a UCITS approach much appoint a depositary bank.This is to ensure the safekeeping, cash monitoring and oversight of assets.As AIFMD funds grow in number, with the regulatory rollout continuing across the EU, the number of pension schemes requiring these services increases, fuelling BNP’s strategy.Garrick Smith, who heads up the bank’s new Switzerland operation, cited growing demand for a consolidated approach for operational services such as depotbank and custody.“We have already won our first depotbank mandate in the market, from one of the biggest independent fund of fund managers in Switzerland,” he said. “With this expansion, we underline our commitment to the Swiss market.”This follows a trend of BNP expanding services on the back of changes to regulation.In October 2012, it announced the launch of a local custody service in the US, providing post-trade services to institutional investors.At the time, the bank said the Dodd Frank Act, which implemented reform in response to the financial crisis, created a “whole range of opportunities”.last_img read more

NBA: Celtic’s Kemba Walker sends Shamet ‘back to Los Angeles’ with nasty crossover [VIDEO]

first_imgAnkle-breakers and crossovers are an almost nightly occurrence in the NBA.While they may not be rare, having them being done successfully to you is not fun.When it is an emphatic one like Kemba Walker’s dazzler on Landry Shamet earlier when the Boston Celtics took on the Los Angeles Lakers, it’s almost downright embarrassing.Walker, an outrageously talented ball-handler approached the Clippers’ half of the court and was immediately approached by Shamet.After dazing Shamet with a couple of dribbles and a cross, Kemba then sent Landry scuttling towards the basket with a step-back before draining the triple.The move elicited oohs and aahs from the  Boston crowd and cheers after he sank the trey.The Celtics eventually beat the Clippers 141-133 to improve to 38-16 as the LA side drop to 37-18.The clip was posted by bleacher report and has already been viewed over 600,000 times.last_img read more

Mayors slow building of fence

By The Associated Press BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Mayors along the Texas-Mexico border have begun a quiet protest of the federal government’s plans to build a fence along the border: They are refusing to give access to their land. Mayors in Brownsville, Del Rio and El Paso have denied access to some parts of their city property, turning away federal employees assigned to begin surveys or conduct other preliminary work on the fence meant to keep out illegal immigrants. “This is exercising our rights. This is our property. We are not going to make it easy for them,” said Brownsville Mayor Pat Ahumada, who refused last month to sign documents granting government workers permission to enter city property. In Eagle Pass, Mayor Chad Foster initially refused the Border Patrol’s request to build 1 miles of fencing as part of a project that includes light towers and a new road for patrols. Now he is negotiating with the Department of Homeland Security. “All of us are in opposition to physical barriers, but we want to work with DHS so everybody walks away happy,” Foster said. Del Rio and El Paso granted workers limited access, said Monica Weisberg Stewart of the Texas Border Coalition, a group that represents local officials. Congress has authorized $1.2billion to put up 700 miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. The project would include about 330miles of so-called virtual fence – a network of cameras, high-tech sensors, radar and other technology. The remaining 370 miles, primarily in more urban areas, are expected to have an actual fence. last_img read more

Bali to consider boozing ban

first_imgBali, a popular destination for many Australian and international travellers, could see a bill passed that would ban the sale and consumption of alcohol, jailing offenders for up to two years.Indonesia will consider ‘The Bill for a Ban on Alcoholic Drinks’, drafted by the United Development Party and listed on the national parliamentary legislative agenda for next year, The Age reported.The ban, which would destroy the nightlife of the famous tourist haven, should be “applied nationwide within the territory of the unitary state of the republic of Indonesia”, the predominantly Islamic United Development Party said.Under the rules of the ban, producers of alcoholic drinks would face up to 10 year’s imprisonment and AU$1 million in fines, while distributors would be liable to receive AU$520,000 in fines and five years in prison. If caught consuming alcohol, tourists and locals could face up to two years in prison and a AU$20,800 fine.The chairman of Bali’s Tourism Board said he would “flatly reject” any attempt to ban alcohol or jail drinkers.Drinking is “part of the international world and we are here to attract tourists”, Mr Wijaya said.Indonesia’s population is by and large Muslim and most people refrain from drinking, although it is widely available in nightclubs, bars and some cafes.The United Development Party MP Ahmad Kurdi Moekri said the bill would “safeguard the nation’s morals.”“We should not take the stance… that, since the bill was proposed by a party of certain religious background, that it might lead to turning the country into a religious-based state,” Mr Moekri said. Indonesia’s popular tourist island could face an alcohol ban next year. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.Tlast_img read more
