Deutsche Bank kicks off its €8bn rights issue on Tuesday as German lender attempts to bolster its capital

Sunday 19 March 2017 2:30 pm Share Deutsche Bank announced today it is due to press go on its €8bn (£6.9bn) rights issue on Tuesday, as the German banking giant tries to shore up its capital. The Frankfurt-headquartered lender announced a slew of plans to improve its capital position earlier this month, including, in addition to the rights issue, holding onto its Postbank division, streamlining its business model and listing a stake in Deutsche Asset Management. Deutsche Bank has also slashed its staff’s bonuses for the year, which consist of an individual bonus based on whether an employee has hit their targets and a bonus from a group pool calculated on the firm’s financial performance.Back in January, it announced anybody with vice president, director or managing director in their job title would not be receiving their individual bonus, a move which will affect one in four staff. Last week, City A.M. revealed the bank had also halved the amount of the payout bankers could be expecting from the group bonus pool.  whatsapp Read more: US bankers’ bonuses are putting UK lenders to shameBy comparison, the lender’s CET 1 ratio at the end of 2016 stood at 11.9 per cent and no dividend was announced for last year. The capital position of Deutsche Bank, which announced a €1.4bn loss for 2016 and a €6.8bn loss for 2015, was called into question last autumn when it was revealed the firm could be facing a fine of as much as $14bn (£11.3bn) from the US Department of Justice for mis-selling mortgage-backed securities.The bank settled the penalty for $7.2bn in January.  Read more: This Deutsche Bank analyst thinks sterling could fall another 16 per cent whatsapp The bank has said the issue of 687.5m new shares will run from 21 March to 6 April, with investors being offered a one new share for two existing shares deal on their current shares so not to dilute their stake.

Coronavirus bill: Government outlines emergency powers

first_img Coronavirus bill: Government outlines emergency powers to curb coronavirus outbreak As expected, the bill also gives the government the power to order schools to be shut – rather than simply recommend that they do so. Doctors and police officers will be handed sweeping powers to detain people suspected of being infected with Covid-19, as part of measures being brought in with emergency legislation.  The government’s coronavirus bill will give doctors and police the power to arrest and quarantine people diagnsoed with Covid-19 (AFP via Getty Images) Separately, producers and others involved in the food supply chain will be force to tell the government when supplies are running low.  Share According to the nearly 330-page Coronavirus Bill published this afternoon, a single doctor may be able to “impose such requirements and restrictions on the person as the [public health] officer considers necessary and proportionate”, including restricting an individual’s movements and contact with others.  whatsapp More to follow. Officers can also force people suspected of being infectious to a testing and assessment centre, and compel people to be tested for the virus.

However ministers can shorten, or lengthen, this period by six months. The bill states that anyone working in food supply chain must inform authorities if “the whole or part of a food supply chain is being disrupted or is at risk of disruption”. “If the person absconds… a constable [can respond by] taking the person into custody and returning them to that place or another place a public health officer may specify,” the Coronavirus Bill reads.

CRA confirms advantage tax rules relief

first_img Related news CRA updates RRSP, TFSA advantages folio TFSA advantage can lead to a tax of 100% The letter’s release ended nearly three years of tax uncertainty for investors and consultation efforts from industry groups. Ever since the CRA announced in 2016 that paying registered plan fees from outside accounts would incur a tax penalty equivalent to the fee, industry groups had been telling the CRA that clients who pay fees outside registered accounts aren’t usually tax-motivated and advocating for the CRA to reverse its position.CRA spokesperson Dany Morin confirmed in an email that the agency will adhere to the comfort letter.“Until the proposed amendment is enacted into law, the CRA will continue to administer the advantage tax rules in accordance with the relief proposed in the comfort letter,” Morin wrote.The CRA will also update its advantages folio after Finance updates the definition of “advantage.”“The CRA will update Income Tax Folio S3-F10-C3, Advantages – RRSPs, RESPs, RRIFs, RDSPs and TFSAs once the proposed amendment is enacted into law,” Morin stated.The CRA’s position on registered account fees was expected to be laid out in the advantages folio when it came out Oct. 1, 2018. The folio’s section on “fees and expenses” does not currently address registered account fees.

Canada Invests in Renewable Energy With Geothermal Exploration in Yukon

first_imgCanada Invests in Renewable Energy With Geothermal Exploration in Yukon From: Natural Resources CanadaThe Honourable Larry Bagnell, Member of Parliament for Yukon, on behalf of the Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, today announced $2 million in funding for the Government of Yukon to explore the potential of geothermal energy as a long-term source of renewable energy for communities currently powered by diesel.Canada is fortunate to have world-leading clean power resources. One of the most important ways to fight climate change is to harness these resources and use them to power our homes, businesses and lives. That is why the Government of Canada is investing in clean energy projects that will invigorate local economies and curb pollution.The Honourable Larry Bagnell, Member of Parliament for Yukon, on behalf of the Honourable Seamus O’Regan Jr., Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, today announced $2 million in funding for the Government of Yukon to explore the potential of geothermal energy as a long-term source of renewable energy for communities currently powered by diesel.The project will engage Kluane First Nation, Liard First Nation and Teslin Tlingit Council in the planning and delivery of project activities with the goal of stimulating investments in geothermal energy development in Canada that will ultimately help achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.Led by Yukon Geological Survey, this regional assessment will:help fund at least two temperature-gradient wells to be drilled along the Denali Fault near the Kluane First Nation community of Burwash Landing, where early findings show strong geothermal potential; andsupport exploratory work along two additional faults – the Tintina and Teslin – to identify suitable sites for future drilling of temperature gradient wells.Geothermal energy is captured from the heat stored beneath the earth’s surface, which when harnessed with clean technologies and equipment can be used to replace higher greenhouse gas-emitting sources like diesel.Funding comes from Natural Resources Canada’s Emerging Renewables Power Program – a $200-million program to expand the portfolio of commercially viable renewable energy sources available to provinces and territories as they work to reduce emissions from their electricity sectors. The funding is also part of Canada’s more than $180-billion Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program for public transit projects, green infrastructure, social infrastructure, trade and transportation routes and Canada’s rural and northern communities.As outlined in Canada’s strengthened climate plan, A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy, making Canada a world leader in clean power is a top priority. The government will continue to advance renewable energy projects that increase the supply of non-emitting power generation from coast to coast to coast.Quotes“Geothermal will help northern and remote communities use less diesel and more of this new clean energy technology. We’re working with Yukon and First Nations to get to net zero by 2050.”Seamus O’Regan Jr.Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources“This project will help improve the understanding of geothermal resources in Yukon and in Canada. The Government of Canada will continue to work with provinces and territories to successfully develop these resources that will help us achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.”Larry BagnellMember of Parliament for Yukon“The Government of Yukon is pleased to be working with Kluane First Nation, Liard First Nation and Teslin Tlingit Council to undertake this important work. This geothermal energy project fulfils one of the action items in Our Clean Future: A Yukon plan for climate change, energy and a green economy. We are committed to supporting the development of renewable energy, and we appreciate Canada’s investment in the project.”Ranj PillaiYukon’s Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources /Public Release.

Honda Insight returning as a premium hybrid sedan

first_img We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. The original Insight debuted in 1999 with quirky hatchback styling and was the first hybrid vehicle available in North America. That iteration lasted until 2006, then it returned in 2009 as a more sedate-looking hatchback, but production ended in 2014. After being discontinued in 2013, Honda is bringing back the Insight hybrid – not as a hatchback, but as a large, premium four-door sedan.By returning the Insight to the mass market, Honda is looking to capitalize on the recent, increasing popularity of hybrids and EVs. According to Honda, the Insight is an “upscale, stylish five-passenger sedan positioned above the Civic.” Admittedly, the new Insight resembles an Accord more than the Civic.The new Insight is part of Honda’s push to have electrified vehicles make up two-thirds of its global sales by 2030. It’s set to be built in Honda’s factory in Greensburg, Indiana. We’ll have more details on the new Honda Insight at the Detroit auto show next month.

Early Career Scientist Day connects postdocs and Colorado state legislators

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Jan. 26, 2018 CO state representative Donald Valdez (left) and CU Boulder Project Bridge representative Brian Aguado, PhD.A total of 57 postdoctoral scholars from Colorado research institutions assembled at the Colorado State Capitol on January 19 to share their research with Colorado state legislators as part of Colorado Science Day organized by Project Bridge Colorado. In support of the event, Governor John Hickenlooper signed an official proclamation naming January 19, 2018, as “Early Career Scientist Day.”CU Boulder was well-represented among the 11 Colorado research institutions at the event, including CU Anschutz Medical Campus, CU Denver, CSU, NREL, NCAR, NOAA and NIST. The Postdoctoral Association of Colorado and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs promoted the event to CU Boulder postdoctoral scholars.Research presentations by 15 CU Boulder postdoctoral scholars included lasers to study nanomaterial properties, biomaterial models of heart valve disease, the impact of emissions on human health, molecular sensors for cancer diagnostics, weather prediction models and vibration-resistant cloak materials that can be used to protect buildings from earthquake damage.Co-hosted by a bipartisan coalition of 71 Colorado state senators and representatives, the Colorado Science Day poster session gave postdoctoral scholars from around the state the unique opportunity to speak with their representatives about their research. Colorado state legislators, in turn, learned about the breadth of scientific research performed by Colorado’s research institutions and developed a deeper understanding of issues of interest to their constituents.“We are thrilled our postdoctoral colleagues took the time to leave the lab and engage with legislators,” says Brian Aguado, PhD, who serves as the Project Bridge representative for CU Boulder and president for the Postdoctoral Association of Colorado. “Project Bridge looks forward to providing more opportunities for early career scientists to network within and between Colorado institutions and communicate their findings to our legislators and the public.”Project Bridge Colorado is a coalition of postdoctoral scholars that aims to promote outreach and engagement of scientists with their communities by providing science communication training, community events and science advocacy opportunities.Categories:Getting InvolvedCampus Communitylast_img read more

Beyond Boulder: CU Boulder researchers and IBM pilot sustainable groundwater modeling

first_imgPublished: Feb. 22, 2019 A recent article published in Forbes discusses how researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder are teaming up with tech giant IBM, nonprofit organization The Freshwater Trust (TFT), and sensor provider SweetSense Inc. to pilot blockchain and satellite-connected sensor solutions to track groundwater usage in California.By transmitting water extraction data to satellites, the project’s scientists and engineers hope to show how remote IoT sensors can precisely measure groundwater usage in real time and how blockchain can create a water-trading platform.The group plans to pilot the system in northern California’s 1,100-square-mile Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, which is home to dozens of protected fish, plant and animal species, as well as the source of water for the San Francisco Bay Area and much of Southern California.The pilot will allow the group to establish a web-based dashboard for farmers, financers and regulators. Individual users of the groundwater will be able to monitor and track the use of groundwater, trade groundwater use shares and purchase shares from other uses. In addition to their work in California, the engineers are also using these technologies to monitor groundwater use in Kenya and Ethiopia as part of several USAID programs.“By remotely monitoring groundwater use via our sensors, we’re able to help improve and maintain sustainable access to water supplies for people, farmers, and livestock. The work we’re doing in Africa is directly translatable to California,” said Evan Thomas, associate professor and Mortenson Chair of Global Engineering in civil, environmental and architectural engineering at CU Boulder and CEO of SweetSense.The project is being funded by the Water Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.Read the ArticleTags:Faculty NewsNewslast_img read more
