Jones’ father, former JJB chairman Sir David Jones, stepped down from his role as non-executive director on 28 July due to ill health. Stuart is understood to have followed just days later. Insiders suggested yesterday that Jones junior had been sacked, after a management shake-up at the firm in the wake of Sir David’s departure. However, a company spokesman insisted he had resigned. “I’m sure he will have a fruitful career in whatever he does next,” he added. Jones junior has worked for several family businesses including consultancy firm Retail Gateway, where he courted controversy in 2008 after being asked to write a six-month review of JJB’s online business. His father had been appointed as a non-executive director at the sports firm just months earlier, while his mother worked as company secretary for the consultancy. Keith Jones (no relation) was hired by JJB as chief executive in March, to try and stem heavy losses at the high street retailer. center_img KCS-content JJB loses links to the Jones family as Sir David’s son quits Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayot whatsapplast_img read more

Ratings agencies under scrutiny as penalties for mistakes mulled

first_img Ratings agencies under scrutiny as penalties for mistakes mulled Share KCS-content EUROPEAN Union (EU) finance ministers will discuss this week how they might penalise rating agencies that pass inappropriately harsh judgment on countries, a senior EU politician said yesterday.Building on remarks that he wants a new EU markets watchdog to be able to fine rating agencies, Didier Reynders, the finance minister of acting EU president Belgium, said: “It must be possible to penalise. If after some weeks or months it is possible to say it (a downgrade) was a wrong signal, what is the responsibility of the rating agency?“It is quite difficult to say that there is no responsibility if it is possible to prove it was a wrong analysis, a wrong signal.” whatsapp 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 PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comcenter_img More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com Tuesday 28 September 2010 11:16 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Exchange rates stripped out $122m in the quarter compared with a year ago though the effect on operating profit was negligible, Teva said.Analysts on average expected Teva to earn $1.27 a share on sales of $4.37bn.

A tip for regulators: no risk means no gain

first_img Share KCS-content A tip for regulators: no risk means no gain Tags: NULL Sunday 7 November 2010 8:25 pmcenter_img whatsapp This time last year, in my first column for City A.M., I cautioned that efforts to restore public confidence in parts of the financial services industry would be a marathon, not a sprint.Now that I approach the finish line marking the end of my tenure as Lord Mayor, I am glad to see the City has taken major strides towards addressing the lessons of the financial crisis.A keenly contested general election, relatively high unemployment and a patchy global economic recovery have made for a difficult political environment over the past year.The industry has nonetheless worked in close partnership with policymakers on macro-prudential reform to examine how we can serve our clients – and ultimately the nation – better. Our task, together with regulators, is to be the best at managing the risks we take. In this light, it is positive that British banks are already well placed to meet their Basel III capital requirements. Regulation and oversight are part of the solution. What the City needs in this area is certainty, clarity and consistency. That is good for business and the country. It is worth remembering, however, that we are actually capitalists. And this means taking risks, because no risk means no gain. A typical response to previous crises has been to increase the number of regulators and reams of regulations. This approach has not worked in the past and nor will it this time. Law and regulation in themselves cannot drive the actions of financial institutions and their staff. That can only come from the culture of individual organisations.This has been a recurring theme during my time in office. I started this year with an event on ethical investing, took part in an event on corporate governance and ethics in the Square Mile, and then hosted a lecture by Stephen Green.And last month, City leaders came together at Mansion House for a debate on how institutions can promote strong internal cultures and engage with the wider community as part of an industry-wide effort to rebuild trust. We must be sensitive to these issues, and others like bonuses. But the City operates in an increasingly competitive international marketplace and policymakers should look to secure consensus with major G20 rivals rather than act in isolation.My overseas business visits as Lord Mayor – 35 cities, in 21 countries – have shown me that the City continues to be held in high esteem globally. We cannot, however, afford to be complacent. The danger is that rapidly developing markets in Asia and Latin America could edge ahead of us if we get reform wrong.So as I prepare to pass on the baton to the 683rd holder of this great office, Alderman Michael Bear, we must continue sprinting towards the line in order to defend the City’s status as a national and international asset.Nick Anstee is Lord Mayor of the City of London Show Comments ▼ whatsapplast_img read more

Regal confirms bid approach

first_img KCS-content Regal Petroleum said yesterday it was in the early stages of takeover talks with suitors, sending shares in the troubled oil explorer soaring.The company, which has suffered a series of setbacks this year after disappointing well results in Ukraine, said it had received a number of approaches after it announced plans for a strategic review and the departure of its chief executive. Shares in Regal, which have fallen 86 per cent since the beginning of the year, surged to gain 46 per cent yesterday to 18.3p, valuing the company at about £39.5m.“The background is they’ve got more cash than the current market cap,” one analyst, who did not wish to be named, said of the firm’s potential appeal.

The yield on Spain’s 12 and 18-month bills fell as much as 50 basis points compared to auctions in January, a mark of broadly better market sentiment. The Treasury sold €6.2bn of 12- and 18-month T-bills, the high end of its targeted range. The 13-week Greek bill yield fell to 3.85 per cent but the premium demanded by investors on secondary markets to hold Greek over German debt widened to 860 basis points, 26 basis points on the day, as uncertainty continued to plague the southern Eurozone economies struggling most with high debt.
