However, most banks are confident behind the scenes that the commission will stop short of recommending a full break-up, an attitude symbolised by Barclays’ decision to appoint its investment bank boss Bob Diamond as the group’s next chief executive.The other primary focus to be outlined in the commission’s issues paper, to be released on Friday, is the level of competition in the UK retail banking market. Vickers and his team – ex-Barclays chief executive Martin Taylor; Claire Spottiswoode, the ex-head of gas regulator Ofgas; JP Morgan’s former co-head of investment banking Bill Winters; and FT columnist Martin Wolf – are likely to acknowledge the comparatively high level of competition in UK retail banking, sources said yesterday. But they will also address the dominance of larger players in the market and the prohibitive costs of setting up smaller rivals.The commission has already met with the chiefs of most of the UK’s biggest banks and other industry heavyweights to clarify its intentions. Vickers and his team are also set to grill senior banking executives on an ongoing basis as part of their investigation.WHAT WILL BE THE MAIN THRUST OF THE BANKING COMMISSION’S ISSUES PAPER THIS WEEK?● Universal banksHaving stirred up a storm of controversy in the City, the key question of whether or not universal banks should be forced to split their retail and investment operations will be a top priority on the commission’s agenda. Vickers and his team will have to balance split-up calls from the likes of Vince Cable, who believes such a move would reduce the riskiness of the largest banks, with the viewpoint of the banks themselves. Fears are rife that new rules could force some of the UK’s most profitable banks to move their headquarters overseas. ● Competition in retail bankingAlthough there is already a lot of competition in the UK retail banking sector, the commission is widely expected to outline concerns over high barriers to entry. The market is currently dominated by large, powerful players since the costs of setting up smaller competitors – from the cost of regulatory compliance to developing an infrastructure – are so high.● Impact of Basel IIIThe impact of the recently-agreed Basel III rules on bank’s capital requirements will be high on the list of priorities.● US Dodd Frank reformsVickers will also assess the UK impact of US President Obama’s sweeping rules on monitoring risk, supervising banks, banning proprietary trading and so on.● Ways of mitigating riskMore generally, ways of reducing risk in the banking sector – minimising the impact and likelihood of bank failure – is a key issue for the commission.

HSBC Holdings, Deutsche Bank and Standard Chartered have been hired to manage the sale of the five to seven-year bonds, which is likely to be completed by 27 September. Dubai’s government last sold bonds earlier this year in October, when the Department of Finance raised $1.93bn from five year, fixed and floating-rate Islamic notes.

first_img Share Monday 15 November 2010 8:21 pm KCS-content whatsapp No cheap fixes for Ireland’s woes whatsapp Show Comments ▼ NO ONE wants to pay for Ireland to be bailed out. But Britain must face, along with its European partners, the danger that an Irish default presents.Britain is liable for 13.6 per cent of the €60bn (£50bn) European Financial Stabilisation Mechanism. An Irish bailout from the fund could therefore cost Britain as much as £7bn, and perhaps another £3bn through its IMF commitments. That may seem arbitrary and unfair, especially for a country sensible or fortunate enough not to have become enmeshed in the euro’s internal tensions.Yet Britain is hardly isolated from the Irish or the wider European economy. Recall how Iceland’s crisis imposed real costs on the UK, where British councils alone had £1bn invested in Icelandic banks. Today, Britain’s banks are heavily exposed to Ireland. At the end of last year, Bank of England figures show that British banks held £107bn of Irish debt. RBS revealed a £4.28bn exposure as recently as July. That is not even to consider the impact on trade with one of our nearest neighbours – Ireland is Britain’s fifth-biggest trading partner, receiving 7 per cent of our exports. Ireland’s problems are ours too.But the real problem here is the lack of a mechanism for failure. Angela Merkel’s comment yesterday that “if the euro fails, then Europe fails,” might not always sound so catastrophic to British ears, but the fallout from a European collapse could scarcely fail to injure us too. Ireland is a reminder that we lack a suitable way to manage sovereign failure. We need to find an alternative to the kind of system we have now, rife with moral hazard, where no one is prepared to accept losses are possible – without risking crippling economic contagion from the debts that moral hazard has already allowed to accumulate. A solution is proving intractable.Euro-area finance ministers are meeting in Brussels today, but yesterday, even as Portugal’s finance minister Teixera dos Santos urged them to “do what is most appropriate together for Ireland and the euro”, the Irish government called rumours of an EU bailout “fiction”.Whatever happens next, it is a tale without a happy ending, and without heroes. Ireland’s political class has landed the country in a calamitous economic situation, to which Europe and the euro also made a substantial contribution. In the short term, Angela Merkel’s comments helped to precipitate the Irish bond anxieties that brought this crisis to a head. And in the long term, it was Ireland’s membership of the euro that forced it to accept the low interest rates that inflated the bubble that has now exploded. We are all left to face the consequences. There are no easy answers here, and no cheap fixes either.

first_img Share Cocoa to rise as Ivory Coast halts exports THE PRICES of cocoa and coffee could rise sharply this morning after the president-elect of the world’s biggest producer of the beans declared it had suspended exports. The president-elect of the Ivory Coast, Alassane Outtara, yesterday ordered exporters to suspend operations for a month from today in an attempt to cut off funding from rival Laurent Gbagbo, who the UN said lost a presidential election in November. The Ivory Coast produces nearly 40 per cent of the world’s cocoa according to UN figures, and Outtara hopes the economic fallout from an export ban will pressure Gbabo to step down. The price of cocoa has risen 13 per cent since the Ivory Coast’s disputed election, and stood at $3263 (£2,025) per tonne last week, according to the International Cocoa Organisation. The price of cocoa hit a 33-year high of £2,732 a tonne mid-way through last year. The world’s largest traders were reportedly planning an emergency conference call with industry body the Federation of Cocoa Commerce yesterday to help clarify the trading restrictions. The FCC and European Cocoa Association said in a joint statement last night that the situation in the Ivory Coast has “created a very testing environment for the cocoa trade” and that it is working with those in the industry to resolve issues arising from the suspension. “Time, patience and a common sense approach to the difficulties and delays that may arise are required, but most importantly, all those whose interests are impacted should remain calm in order that we sustain no long term damage to Ivorian farming communities and the cocoa industry,” the trade bodies said. The European Union has tightened its economic sanctions against the Ivory Coast to try and unseat Gbabo, while other West African states have warned that they are prepared to use force to oust Gbabo’s government. African leaders have also asked Outtara to name a new head of the region’s central bank, in a further attempt to remove Gbabo from power.

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL BOPARAN Holdings built up its stake in takeover target Northern Foods to 11.4 per cent yesterday, after several large shareholders sold their stakes for Boparan’s 73p per share offer price. Boparan, which made its takeover bid on Friday night, said in a statement it had snapped up 22.4m shares to bring its total to 53.3m.Boparan also confirmed that Northern shareholders registered on 7 January will receive a 1.55p interim dividend as planned by Leeds-based Northern last year.One bank understood to have sold at least some of its stake in Northern is Lloyds Banking Group, which last week declared an interest in 6.9 per cent of the Leeds-based convenience foods maker. Lloyds also holds a small stake in Greencore, the Irish food firm that is working to sweeten its all-share merger plans for Northern. Evolution Securities analyst Alex Sloane said Greencore would likely need to raise substantial funds, possibly through a rights issue, to finance a rival to Boparan’s all-cash bid. He added that Boparan is unlikely to match the cost synergies offered by Greencore, estimating £10m to £15m per year savings compared to Greencore’s £40m.Boparan, which is run and owned by Ranjit Singh Boparan, specialises in producing chicken products for supermarkets. Shares in Northern foods edged upwards to close at 74.25p yesterday, a gain of 0.34 per cent. Shares in Greencore also gained to close 1.58 per cent higher at €1.16. FAST FACTS | NORTHERN FOODSLeeds-based Northern Foods produces Fox’s biscuits, Goodfella’s pizza and ready meals.In November, Northern announced an all-share merger with Greencore, the maker of Weight Watchers meals, to create Essenta Foods.LUCA FERRARIGOLDMAN SACHSRANJIT Boparan hired Goldman Sachs and Rothschild to advise on his efforts to take over Northern Foods. Goldman Sachs partner and managing director Luca Ferrari leads the team working for Boparan at the bank. He has a history of high-flying media deals, including advising Telefonica during its £18bn takeover of mobile network O2 in 2005, but also has M&A experience in insurance and industry. Also on the Goldman team is Nick Harper, who last year helped Betfair float on the London market and in 2006 worked for Boots during its £13bn merger with Alliance UniChem. Gilberto Pozzi, another Goldman partner working for Boparan, worked on one of the world’s biggest mergers when Arcelor and Mittal joined forces in 2006. The Rothschild bankers include head of hotels and leisure, Avi Goldberg, who once advised Northern Foods. Kevin Ramsden, who currently sits on Boris Johnson’s social housing taskforce, and Premier Foods adviser Robert Plowman make up the rest of the Rothschild team.
