It gives you a head start in a career, and a few years of enjoyment; you’ve got to enjoy yourself while you’re young and university is the perfect way to do that while getting qualifications.”STEVE APPS | SWISS RE“No. My view is that universities should just keep to the prestigious degrees.

Cable under Sky pressure

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share MEDIA giants yesterday united against Rupert Murdoch’s plans to buy BSkyB in an £8bn deal.DMGT’s Associated Newspapers, the Telegraph Media Group, Trinity Mirror and Guardian Media Groupwrote a joint letter urging business secretary Vince Cable to intervene in the deal. The BBC, Channel 4 and BT also signed the letter. They argue the acquisition would seriously compromise media plurality, with the Murdoch empire already owning the Times, Sun and News of the World newspapers. Murdoch currently owns 39 per cent of the satellite broadcaster and has proposed a 700p-a-share buyout that would value the firm at £8bn. News Corp is expected to file for regulatory approval with the European Commission. After this Cable could chose to initiate a full enquiry into the deal on the grounds of public interest.

But the Council for Mortgage Lenders (CML) says the rules could exclude creditworthy buyers from the market.CML director general Michael Coogan said: “This set of proposals would end up doing more harm than good. We strongly urge both the FSA itself and relevant government ministers to take stock of all the evidence before proceeding.“These rules would likely have the effect of creating significant financial exclusion among perfectly creditworthy borrowers. In turn, this has wider consequences for housing and wider society, and would exacerbate the generational wealth divide that already exists. We urgently need a proper public policy debate on how housing finance can help the government deliver its housing policy, and to review whether the risk-averse approach which the FSA has adopted would serve mortgage borrowers or undermine their reasonable aspirations to become home owners.” center_img Tuesday 16 November 2010 8:35 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more

Iceland will start the bulk of around $5bn (£3.17bn) of repayments in 2016 and is due to complete in 2046 – a more gradual payment scheme than previously offered by the UK and the Netherlands. The country will pay a fixed interest rate of three per cent on the money it owes to the Netherlands, and will pay a rate of 3.3 per cent on the money owed to Britain.The rates are an improvement on a previous deal of 5.5 per cent interest, which was voted down by Icelandic voters in a referendum in March. Another clause ensures the repayments never exceed five per cent of total government revenue.“This is significantly more advantageous to Iceland and that will play a role in the public perception of it,” US attorney Lee C Buchheit, who headed Iceland’s negotiating team, said.The agreement, which could also pave the way for better relations between the various countries and may help to speed up Iceland’s membership negotiations with the European Union, also still needs political approval. The Icelandic government said yesterday it will vote on the new proposals soon.The UK Treasury said in a statement that “mutually satisfactory closure of this issue will mark a new chapter in UK-Iceland relations”. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldlast_img read more

Beazley drops £180m bid for its rival Hardy

first_img Beazley drops £180m bid for its rival Hardy Tuesday 14 December 2010 8:49 pm whatsapp Share LLOYDS of London insurer Beazley withdrew its £180m offer for rival Lloyds firm Hardy Underwriters yesterday after failing to win an agreed deal and said it might now return cash to investors.In a brief statement issued yesterday, Beazley said it had submitted a final offer of up to 350p per share for Hardy but the firm said it would only consider an offer substantially above this level.The withdrawal of the offer was not unexpected. Beazley had initially offered 300p per share for Hardy in October but this was rejected by the underwriter as opportunistic and designed to exploit a low point in the insurance cycle. Beazley then said on 15 November it might pull the bid after its revised offer, increased to 330p per share from an initial 300p, was once again rejected by Hardy. Beazley said it would now look at other growth strategies. Hardy shares fell 4.6 per cent to 269p. Beazley shares edged up 1.3 per cent to 115.3p on the announcement.“We will continue to look at ways to grow in the United States, at Lloyd’s of London and in Europe,” said chief executive Andrew Horton Horton said Beazley could continue to look for acquisitions but added: “If we end up with surplus capital, I am sure we will look at ways of handing back cash to shareholders.” Lloyd’s of London insurers have been at the centre of takeover speculation as a difficult trading environment has weighed on their share prices, opening up potentially attractive acquisition opportunities. In October, a four-month takeover battle led to Brit Insurance agreeing to be taken over by buyout firms Apollo Management and CVC Capital Partners.

Morrisons in slim Xmas sales rise

first_img Morrisons in slim Xmas sales rise Wm Morrison Supermarkets posted a modest rise in Christmas sales – held back by disruption from severe weather and a tough consumer backdrop. Britain’s fourth-biggest grocer behind market leader Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s said sales at stores open at least a year rose one per cent excluding fuel and VAT sales tax in the six weeks to 2 January.That was down on the 1.3 per cent rise reported in its last quarter. Morrison’s said its expectations for its full financial year remained unchanged and the consumer environment was set to remain challenging amid rising taxes and public spending cuts.

So it’s lucky that bonus season is in full flow, as the VAT hike and inflation combine to push the expected Valentine spend up from £550 to £595 this year. But it appears that rising prices can’t dissuade romantic Brits from splashing out, with long-haul destinations New York and Las Vegas reappearing on the top five Valentine’s 2011 destinations, according to travel website Expedia. For those more focused on purse string than heart strings though, the ever-prudent Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, which has been busy adding up the cost or the romantic day, has a few suggestions for how to cut the cost of romance. Unfortunately The Capitalist can’t imagine many bankers’ wives will be overly impressed with a frozen ready meal and second-hand jewellery – both of which are included in a list of VAT-free tips from the industry body.OWN GOALA record afternoon of scoring in the English premier league usually comes with few repercussions beyond some particularly painful heads come Sunday morning. But for Sporting Index this Saturday’s tally of 41 goals in eight games meant a rather higher price as it notched up a £500m payout. The problem wasn’t so much the volume of goals but the early scoring by top teams – both Arsenal and Manchester City had goal-heavy first halves that left Sporting Index turning out its pockets after 45 minutes. “We knew the writing was on the wall at half-time,” said a spokesman for the firm. If only Arsene Wenger had such foresight…LIFE BEGINS AT 50There were doubtless a few tired souls in the City yesterday in the aftermath of the 50th birthday celebrations of Bob Wigley (right), the former Merrill Lynch banker who chairs Yell, among other posts.Wigley took over the luxury Limewood Hotel in Hampshire, owned by Ineos owner Jim Ratcliffe (a client of his from his Merrill days), and entertained guests including Lastminute.com founder Brent Hoberman, “dragon” Peter Jones and Greg Barker, the minister from the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The Capitalist is reliably informed that all ages were catered for at the weekend-long festivities, with singer James Morrison of ‘You Give Me Something’ fame (pictured above) performing on Saturday night, and the English Chamber Orchestra providing musical accompaniment. The orchestra even played a Wigley-composed tune, which The Capitalist can’t help hoping might pop up on iTunes.A SHOT AT ROMANCEFor singles in the City, how better to spend the money you’ve saved on chocolates and flowers over the year than by investing it in the search for everlasting love? On Saturday, lonely hearts can enjoy an open bar and a chance of romance at London’s first pre-matched singles ball at the Hurlingham Club in Fulham. To avoid the usual awkward moments, organisers Antipodate are putting attendees in touch with a compatible ‘date’ before the evening. At least that way potential Casanovas are saved the trouble of coming up with that perfect chat-up line.

Overall, we expect a gradual recovery and a continued improvement in performance,” the company said in a statement.Reed Elsevier’s total 2010 revenue was flat at £6.06bn, though up two per cent on an underlying basis, while operating profit slipped one per cent to £1.56bn.
