UBS delays its global bonus announcement

first_img THOUSANDS of UBS employees will have to wait an extra week to receive their bonuses, according to an internal memo that a spokesperson confirmed to City A.M. last night. UBS has delayed most of its bonus announcements and promotion decisions in what it said was a drive “to ensure high quality execution of the payment process” and to make sure that regulatory changes have been accounted for in every country. American staff will now learn the size of their bonuses on 16 February, rather than 9 February as planned, with payments to be made in early to mid-March. It is thought that employees in the UK will hear about their bonuses at the end of the month as originally planned. The Swiss bank declined to comment on reports that the bonus pool was being modified due to fears that the pending payouts will be insufficient to retain its top bankers. UBS is due to report its fourth-quarter and full-year results next Tuesday, with analysts predicting quarterly net profits of up to Swfr1.5bn (£983m).The bank scaled back bonuses for senior staff last year after it missed internal profit targets, following criticism from Swiss regulators.

Pressure increases for Rusal to offload Norilsk

first_img Share whatsapp whatsapp Pressure increases for Rusal to offload Norilsk KCS-content A REPORT that Russia’s Sual partners may sell its 15.8 per cent stake in Rusal adds to pressure on the aluminium giant to divest its minority holding in Norilsk Nickel, analysts said yesterday.Viktor Vekselberg, one of Sual’s core shareholders, has said Rusal should accept a $12.8bn offer to buy 20 per cent of Norilsk Nickel, with Moscow’s Vedomosti reporting that Sual now wants to sell its stake in Rusal.“This puts some pressure on Deripaska to agree to sell the Norilsk Nickel stake,” ING analyst Maxim Matveev said.Norilsk, the world’s largest nickel and palladium producer, is at the centre of a power struggle between Russian tycoons Vladimir Potanin and Oleg Deripaska.Deripaska holds 25 per cent of Norilsk via UC Rusal and in December turned down an offer from Norilsk to buy out the stake. Norilsk last month raised its offer price to buy back a smaller, 20 per cent stake.

New Rank CEO unveils revival plan

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address New Rank Group chief executive John O’Reilly has unveiled a four-part plan of action to revive its fortunes after revealing that a series of operational errors led to a disastrous set of financial results.The gaming group, which owns Grosvenor Casinos and Mecca Bingo, saw a fall in revenue, profits and other key indicators during the year to the end of June 2018.O’Reilly (pictured), just 14 weeks into his new job, described a “challenging year” in which revenue was down at both its major brands’ brick-and-mortar premises. The former Ladbrokes and Gala Coral executive also opined the “self-inflicted pain” which caused the company’s digital business to lose momentum, with revenue up by 9.9% – compared to 15% last year – and operating profit down by around 8% to £20.9m, compared to a 63% rise in 2017. In particular, the group’s failure to prepare and execute changes to due diligence and data regulations caused a serious downturn in digital performance during the second half of the year. Digital was actually up 17% at the end of H1.O’Reilly, who replaced Henry Birch in May, also noted that marketing “was cut back when we should have been doing the reverse”.“Rank’s performance isn’t good enough,” said O’Reilly, in a call with investors after the release of the results.O’Reilly said he believes there is nothing wrong with Rank’s strategy, but said it needs “a stronger operational focus”. It will seek to increase its focus on the customer, grow its digital business, drive cost efficiencies and improve organisational capabilityThe changes will be led by new chief transformation officer, Jim Marsh, while the company also this week announced the arrival of chief information officer Jonathan Greenstead, a digital transformational and restructuring specialist formerly with Travelodge.Rank will seek to revive its Grosvenor and Mecca digital platforms with the introduction of an omni-channel service in the second half of the year, which will finally give members who visit brick-and-mortar venues an “incentive” to play Rank’s games online.It also outlined plans for increasing marketing investment and new products. It will focus more on data-driven learning about its customers, while a new content management system will improve its real-time product and service offering.Improvements in organisational capability will be key for Rank, with O’Reilly outlining how failures to prepare for changes to due diligence regulations led to it being unable to allow many high-rolling customers to play during the year. This also led to problems with customer contact, with the company not able to communicate with many members for a period.O’Reilly said: “I joined Rank because of its underlying potential. With the backdrop of a disappointing performance in 2017/18, we are now moving quickly to identify the key priorities which will begin to realise the significant underlying potential that I have now seen first-hand since joining the Group in early May.” 16th August 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Topics: Casino & games Finance Bingo John O’Reilly acts after a year of ‘self-inflicted pain’ Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Bingo Regions: UK & Ireland New Rank CEO unveils revival planlast_img read more

He chose a cascading arrangement, in which 3 houses in the front row are built downwards, whereas 5 houses in the rear row are built upwards. Building foundations in the rear row are slightly raised, while garages and plant rooms in the rear layer are set under the residential floors.

Howard Lake | 1 August 2001 | News Drop the Debt has used a hard-hitting viral e-mail campaign to help persuade G8 leaders to write off the debts of African countries.Drop the Debt sent its e-mail message to demonstrate how many children were dying “due to Third World debt.” The e-mail encouraged recipients to type in their birth debt, and this was used to calculate how many children had died since your last birthday as a result of the debt burden. The number then increased by one every 4.5 seconds.The e-mail was sent to 16,000 people. Designed by Hedgeapple, the campaign services were donated since Drop the Debt said they had no advertising budget. The advert was seen by 61,000 people in the first week: clearly the viral nature of the message had taken off. A further 50,500 people viewed the ad in the second week. By the end of the G8 summit in Genoa 34,652 e-mails had been sent to the world leaders asking for the debt burden to be relieved.

You can even customise your message and choose the section of American society that he has insulted – women, immigrants, Latinos, people with disabilities, native Americans and so on.You can donate from $0.25 per tweet up to $10, or a sum of your choice. Supporters are invited to set a maximum daily limit of $3, $5, $20 or more.

The #VerticalFiver challenge is on to raise funds for NI charities

first_img  225 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Melanie May | 8 March 2019 | News Tagged with: Finance Fundraising ideas The #VerticalFiver challenge is on to raise funds for NI charities Ulster Bank’s vertical five and ten pound notes are now in circulation, and the challenge is on to replicate the success of the #FirstFiver campaign.The brainchild of corporate fundraising consultant and recruiter John Thompson, the #FirstFiver campaign saw £12.5m go to charities across the UK through people taking up the challenge to donate their first new polymer £5 note to a charity of their choice. This then developed into #Tenderaising, which tries to replicate the success of #FirstFiver with other new notes and coins as they come into circulation, With the launch of the UK’s first vertical notes by Ulster Bank at the end of last month, Thompson has challenged people to do the same with the hashtag #VerticalFiver. And in a post on LinkedIn, Northern Ireland Hospice’s Jonathan Lamberton also said he had received his first vertical tenner and as a follower of Thompson’s #Tenderaising idea would be donating it to the hospice. Commenting on #VerticalFiver, Thompson said:“It’s great to see the former CEO of BACS, a leading proponent of a consumer-paced move towards a cashless society, accept my challenge and pledge to seek out his first vertical note to donate to charity. This underlines the true spirit of #Tenderaising, as originally unleashed by #FirstFiver. It’s a simple, but effective concept; a perfect blend of physical giving powered by people promoting causes closest to their hearts by sharing unique content on social media.“I’ve already seen NI hospices getting involved and hope the momentum will build over the following weeks. “Cash is still king when it comes to giving and, as many recent examples have shown, technology is not infallible; so a crashless society must come before a cashless one. Until that time, there will be lots of opportunities to fundraise through new notes and coins.  “My hopes are that the movement will eventually go global and, for now, that the generous people of Northern Ireland rise to the challenge of #VerticalFiver.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2center_img  224 total views,  2 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

This number is twice as high as it was in 2014, according to the Health and Wellness Center.Andrew Nash, a hall director for TCU’s campus apartments and certified QPR instructor, said QPR training teaches gatekeepers how seemingly minor actions can prevent the worst.“Saving a life can be as simple as asking somebody how they’re doing and having a real conversation about that,” Nash said. “QPR training empowers all of us to make a difference in the world.”As one of the certified instructors, Nash is able to certify and train others on suicide prevention.There are three official steps for suicide prevention: Questioning the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide, persuading the person to seek help and referring the person to appropriate resources.QPR training is mandatory for many student leadership positions such as RA, CRA and First-Year Experience staff. Stewart said he wants to expand this reach further.“We want to provide everyone at TCU the information and skills needed to identify warning signs of depression and suicide,” Stewart said.If you or anyone you know is experiencing depression or thoughts of suicide, call the TCU hotline at 817-257-7233. More information can also be found on the TCU mental health and counseling website. Mackinley Bullockhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mackinley-bullock/last_img read more

Algerian journalists held for working for French TV without accreditation
