Awards on Thursday 28 October 2010 at Grange St Paul’s Hotel, London EC4. www.CityAMAwards.com.BARCLAYS STOCKBROKERSThe UK’s largest execution-only retail stockbroker, the firm has moved with the times and as well as equities and funds, now also offers ETFs, CFDs, structured products, spread trading, covered warrants and foreign exchange trading. It has increasingly started to use social media to deepen its engagement with clients, and recently launched a new product called SmartWoman, which is designed to encourage more women to invest.BREWIN DOLPHINOne of the founding firms of the London Stock Exchange in the 18th century, the firm has grown through a series of mergers to become one of the largest independent investment managers for private clients in the UK. The group now has 41 regional offices and £23bn funds under management and 669 approved investment managers. It prides itself on personalisation, and says that every client’s portfolio is designed specially and managed locally. Show Comments ▼center_img COLLINS STEWARTWell-known chairman Terry Smith recently stood down, to be replaced by Mark Brown, but the basics of Collins Stewart’s business remain unchanged; it prides itself on mixing personal client service with “an institutional investment approach”. It has a diverse offering that goes beyond UK equities, and includes derivatives and global equities. The downturn has led it to innovate, and it has moved heavily into fixed interest advisory services.HARGREAVES LANSDOWNA recent change of personnel at the top – founder Stephen Lansdown has decided to step down and take on a non-executive role – is unlikely to change things fundamentally for the Bristol-based broker. And things are going well for it. Recent results showed an 18 per cent increase in profits. It has grown throughout the financial crisis, and now has approximately £17.6bn of assets under administration or management on behalf of private investors. Its flagship Vantage brand has 300,000 clients. Big is beautiful. KILLIKIn the 21 years since it was founded, Killik has grown to manage £2bn for 25,000 private clients, and is one of the few stockbrokers that offer nominee shareholders the ability to vote. The firm prides itself on providing daily research, and was instrumental in the establishment of the LSE’s new retail bond market in January 2010, which added a new string to retail investors’ bow. As well as traditional small and mid-cap IPOs and secondary fundraising, it is also bang up to date, offering CFDs, spread bets and managed futures. whatsapp Tags: NULL Share RETAIL BROKER OF THE YEAR | THE SHORTLIST last_img read more

EU calls for roaming fees to be slashed

first_img LARGE roaming fees charged by telecoms operators are “an outdated concept” and the European Union is prepared to take steps to reduce the costs, the bloc’s telecoms chief said yesterday. Digital Agenda Commissioner Neelie Kroes, who oversees telecoms and the internet across the 27-country EU, signalled she was prepared to continue to cap lucrative roaming charges that have been a strong source of income for mobile phone companies.Her predecessor, Viviane Reding, shocked the telecoms industry in 2008 by capping the amount mobile phone companies could charge for calls, sending text messages and downloading data while abroad. The European Parliament backed the proposals last year.“The [European] Commission’s review of the Roaming Regulation must look at the source of the problem and potential solutions in their full context,” Kroes said in the text of a speech prepared for delivery at a European Telecommunications Network Operators Association (ETNO) conference.“The relevant context is the lack of a really competitive single market for all aspects of telecoms services in Europe.”In her previous job as EU competition commissioner, Kroes imposed fines worth billions of euros on companies that broke EU antitrust rules.Kroes said a genuine EU single market should be one where price differences between voice, text messages and data were based only on the actual cost of providing these services.Kroes added: “The exorbitant cost of ‘roaming’ abroad within the EU is an outdated concept.” Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com 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.com EU calls for roaming fees to be slashed Thursday 23 September 2010 8:06 pm Sharecenter_img whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp last_img read more

Culture minister Ed Vaizey will now work solely for the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) on media policy, whilst more than 70 Whitehall officials will move from the business department to DCMS.

It will buy an additional 20.6 per cent stake through an open offer to Patni minority shareholders for $301m.The price of 503.50 rupees a share reflects a premium of 9.4 per cent over Patni’s closing price yesterday of near 464 rupees.The stake is being sold by Patni’s three founding brothers, who collectively own 45.6 per cent, and private equity firm General Atlantic, which owns 17.4 per cent, iGate said.iGate chief executive Phaneesh Murthy said the acquisition, which is expected to close in the first half of this year, would help boost its revenue, customers and service offerings.

Though total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 was up by 7.5 per cent at £654m, disruption costs were bigger than anticipated, running to £31m.The continued downward trend since January reflects the fact that despite posting a high load factor of 86 per cent for February – up 3.1 per cent to 3.83m from 3.39m in 2010 – investors are concerned that easyJet’s rapidly expanding fleet means returns won’t match costs.But it’s not time to sell yet. EasyJet’s winter 2011 schedule should provide investors with an opportunity to assess management’s longer-term prudence, and though target prices are falling, most brokers remain neutral on the stock. center_img whatsapp Monday 28 March 2011 12:50 am KCS-content Don’t judge growth plans yet Sharelast_img read more

ANALYST VIEWS: HOW STRONG ARE HAYS’ FIGURES?

first_img ANALYST VIEWS: HOW STRONG ARE HAYS’ FIGURES? KCS-content PAUL JONES | PANMURESome decent quarter three growth from Hays, with broad-based progress in a number of areas and driven by international operations. But exposure to the UK public sector is likely to drag overall progress for Hays given the ongoing market challenges, and the ramifications of the Japanese earthquake is likely to take the shine off full-year. We say hold.DAVID O’BRIEN | SHORE CAPITAL We think this was a strong result from Hays, although the combination of the continued weakness in the UK public sector and impact of the three natural disasters leads us to believe that it is unlikely that expectations will rise today. We therefore expect the shares to tread water for the near future. We remain positive in the longer term.ANDY MURPHY | SINGER CAPITAL MARKETSNet debt increased modestly to £130m and is expected to remain flat in the next quarter. On 1 April Hays announced that an OFT fine had been reduced from £30.36m to £5.88m. This has already been provided for. The weaker performance in the UK is primarily a result of the group’s exposure to the public sector. These are solid results.
