first_img Share Financial services group Brewin Dolphin reported a 16 per cent rise in revenues from a year earlier as its investment management arm attracted new client money.A 17 per cent increase in income from investment management offset a 13 per cent decline from its corporate advisory and broking business, the company said on Wednesday.“Favourable trading conditions in the first quarter continued into January. As ever, in the short term, the group is dependent on market movement,” the company said.The total value of its managed funds grew seven per cent from the previous quarter to £24.8bn pounds, boosted by rising stock markets but also helped by £500m of new money.Brewin Dolphin added it expects a levy on the financial industry to cover the burden of compensating major investment failures to cost it £6m, compared with a similar charge of £1m last year.

Sources told City A.M. the deal was “very close” to completion and an announcement should be made today, ending weeks of talks.The deal is likely to have been spurred on by a week-long frenzy of stock market mergers in which the London Stock Exchange and Toronto Metals Exchange agreed to combine and Deutsche Boerse and NYSE Euronext confirmed their tie-up.Chi-X is Europe’s biggest multilateral trading platform with about 18 per cent market share, while BATS in Europe has about seven per cent, giving their combined group a bigger presence than the LSE on 24 per cent.But a merged NYSE Euronext and Deutsche Boerse group would control about 28 per cent of the market.BATS and Chi-X Europe compete with national stock exchanges on equity trades and need scale and market share to remain profitable. Launched in 2007, Chi-X Europe is owned by a Nomura subsidiary and 13 banks including Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse. Kansas-based BATS was founded in 2005 and is also privately owned.Chi-X Europe has been up for sale since mid-2010 and has hired Lexicon Partners to advise it. Chi-X Europe and BATS both declined to comment. last_img read more

The letters, sent by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, are intended to encourage the executives to reach a settlement under directors’ and officers’ liability insurance. They are seen as a precursor to a potential lawsuit, which could be brought within the next 30 days, according to reports. Washington Mutual collapsed in September 2008.

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter International betting integrity body ESSA has revealed that it received 267 reports of suspicious betting activities in 2018, with tennis responsible for more than half of the cases. Email Address 14th February 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter International betting integrity body ESSA received 267 reports of unusual wagering activity from operator partners in 2018, with tennis responsible for more than half of these cases.A total of 178 reports were filed in relation to wagering on tennis events around the world, with football some way behind in second place on 52 cases.Table tennis attracted eight reports in 2018, ahead of esports and basketball, both on seven, while four alerts were generated for beach volleyball and three for indoor volleyball. Ice hockey and badminton followed on two cases each, with horse racing, handball, boxing and bowls only responsible for one report apiece.The total number of reports remains level year-on-year, with ESSA having looked at 266 suspicious betting cases in 2017.Europe remains the region of most concern to the integrity body, accounting for 148, or 55%, of the total reports filed over the past year. Spain was responsible for 18 of these cases, closely followed by Italy on 17 cases and then the Czech Republic and Ukraine with 10 each. Asia ranks second in terms of suspicious betting reports with 48 cases, 13 of which were located in Turkey, while Africa had a total of 26 cases, almost half coming out of Egypt (12). South America accounted for 23 reports while just 13 cases were located in North America.However, despite the relatively low number of reports in North America, ESSA secretary general Khalid Ali has said the launch of legalised sports betting in a number of states across the US raises new integrity concerns for the body and it is now working with partners in the country to monitor activities.“One of the biggest concerns of the betting market opening up in the US is integrity; as a result, we assisted the establishment of the Sports Wagering Integrity Monitoring Association, our American equivalent, with whom we will work closely to combat sports betting related corruption on a global basis,” he said.Ali also addressed ongoing concerns over integrity in tennis, with the sport having accounted for the majority of suspicious betting cases in ESSA reports for some time now. On average, more than 65% of ESSA alerts have been on tennis.An independent review panel last year published a report following a three-year study of the sport, in which it set out 12 integrity recommendations. Ali said the recommendation to restrict the sale of data used by operators for in-play markets as being particularly relevant to addressing the sport’s integrity concerns.The Panel proposed removing official data for International Tennis Federation (ITF) events with prize funds of $15,000 (£11,700/€13,300) and $25,000 or lower, but this was altered so that official ITF in-play data for $25,000 matches be retained.“We are now seeking to engage with the sport on the future of official in-play data for $15,000 matches, and also to assist the smooth implementation of the Panel’s other integrity proposals, which we have generally supported,” Ali said.Meanwhile, ESSA has revealed that Jon Russell, global head of trading at Betway, is to become its new chair. He will replace Heike Mayer, who has served in the role for the past two years.Speaking about his new role, Russell said: “The year ahead is expected to pose new challenges and opportunities for the sector and ESSA is setting out a clear plan of action to ensure that its members are best placed to meet those.“Indeed, being part of a collective global monitoring network has never been of greater importance from both a business and integrity perspective, and I call upon all responsible operators to join us in ESSA.” Tennis dominates ESSA suspicious betting reports in 2018 Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Legal & compliancelast_img read more
