The median forecast from a Reuters poll was for an increase of 24,000 jobs.The Fed’s decision on further quantitative easing, due at their early November policy meeting, will likely hinge on inflation and labor market developments and the monthly US Labor Department report on employment tomorrow.The non-farm payrolls report will likely show zero growth in September from August as a further unwinding of temporary US Census jobs and layoffs at state and local governments offset a slight pickup in private hiring, according to a Reuters survey.A strong payrolls reading is possible, said Zach Pandl, US economist at Nomura Securities in New York. “But in general if we get anything looking like this on Friday, ‘QE2’ is a done deal at the November 3 (Fed) meeting.”Another report yesterday showed the number of planned layoffs at US firms rose slightly in September, though it was the second lowest level of the year, according to the report from consultants Challenger, Gray & Christmas.The Fed last month said it was ready to inject more money into the economy if needed to shore up a sluggish recovery.

John Coldman, who was parachuted in a year ago after shareholders ousted his predecessor, said it had taken a $65m hit from catastrophes in the year.But its loss was far bigger than the $18.9m consensus market expectation and a significant fall from its $43.6m 2009 profit. It occurred despite a 34 per cent increase in gross premiums written, to $356.1m from $265.8m in 2009.“To say that ours was a baptism of fire would be an understatement,” Coldman said, adding that he was forced to issue Omega’s first profit warning a week after starting work. “Subsequent events proved equally challenging. I am naturally very disappointed that we are reporting a loss.” But he added that 86 per cent of the loss was incurred from business written in 2009 or earlier, before the board change. Chief executive Richard Pexton also said the previous management’s underwriting, reinsurance and data management was poor and had been overhauled. Omega’s combined ratio rose dramatically to 114.4 per cent from just 81.4 per cent in 2009. It said it would not pay a second-half dividend “as a matter of prudence”. Analysts said the results were worse than expected and “disappointing”. Omega’s shares fell 17.87 to close at 82.75p.

GC follows Gibraltar regulator in suspending Addison licence

first_img The British Gambling Commission has followed its counterpart in Gibraltar by suspending the licence of Addison Global, which operates sports betting site MoPlay, as it conducts a review of the operator. GC follows Gibraltar regulator in suspending Addison licence Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newslettercenter_img 20th February 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: UK & Ireland Email Address The British Gambling Commission has followed its Gibraltarian counterpart in suspending the licence of Addison Global, which operates sports betting site MoPlay, as it conducts a review of the operator.The British review is being carried out under Section 120(1)(b) of the Gambling Act, which allows the Commission to suspend or revoke a licence if it believes an operator is “unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities”. Addison’s remote operating licence will therefore remain suspended until the conclusion of the review.The news comes after the operator’s Gibraltar licence was suspended yesterday (19 February) evening amid reports that the company is facing serious financial difficulties.Addison Global is though to owe significant sums to multiple affiliate partners, including a sum upwards of £500,000 (€597,000/$645,000) to one. This money has been owed since March 2019, according to sources close to the matter.A legal advisor to the director of Addison Global told iGB that the owners were in contact with all stakeholders and suppliers, working alongside the “former” executive team. “We are also liaising regularly with the UK and Gibraltar regulators,” the advisor explained. “In light of license suspensions, we are no longer taking bets, registrations or deposits, however, players can of course withdraw funds.”The advisor promised to provide further updates, promising that the matters in hand would be handled “in an orderly and correct manner by the entire team”.last_img read more

Staff look for rewards and fairness

first_imgStaff look for rewards and fairnessOn 15 Jan 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Almost two-thirds of employees do not have any kind of rewards or incentivesin their current job, research reveals. The survey of 830 staff by consultancy Capital Incentives & Motivationalso shows that being fairly treated at work is more important to UK employeesthan good pay and job security to motivate them at work. Nearly 70 per cent of all respondents identify cash or vouchers rather thana specific prize as the most effective incentive. Overall, fairness was named the most important quality in a boss, but morefemale than male participants say they want recognition and encouragement fromtheir employer. The research found that for both men and women training, good promotionprospects and, surprisingly, job security are less important factors. Graham Povey, managing director of Capital Incentives, said: “It isinteresting that employees still value fair treatment and recognition ratherthan a good salary a year after our launch survey revealed the same results. “This certainly proves that money isn’t everything. “Being valued and well respected at work is what we all truly desire. “Companies need to realise that to retain staff and keep them happy,they must incentivise them in some shape or form.” www.capital-incentives.co.uk Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Show for full-time Airbnb landlords opens today

first_imgThe gap between government views on Airbnb and the reality of the ground have been laid bare following the launch of a trade show to promote the growing ‘buy-to-host’ industry in the UK.Last week a government minister told parliament that it was reluctant to tackle the regulation of online short-lets platforms because it gave households a chance to boost their income.“This in turn promotes economic growth through tourism, although I agree that a balance has ​to be struck with impinging on the business of local hotels,” said James Younger, Viscount Younger of Leckie.And he has a point; Airbnb has consistently presented itself as a tool for home owners to make an extra income from their properties.But Host 2019, which is to take place this week at London’s Business Design Centre attended by half a dozen Airbnb executives, presents another face of the short-let industry.ProfessionalisationThe show is for professional Airbnb landlords and includes advice on business strategy, marketing and sales, blockchain technology, finance and tax and business partnerships.Many of the presentations also point to the increasing sophistication of the short-lets sector created by Airbnb; presentation include advice on ‘buy-to-host’ investing, hiring staff to run Airbnb renting empires, building a website and multiple presentations on regulation.Several UK property sector organisations are represented at the show including London agent Portico, which has a growing business offering Airbnb landlords a management service, the Residential Landlords Association, key management proptech firms KeyNest and Klevio and 3D tours firm Giraffe360. klevio Portico Keynest GuestReady airbnb October 31, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

USS Abraham Lincoln starts pre-deployment exercise

Truman (CVN 75) as it departs Naval Station Norfolk, Jan. 25, 2019. Photo: US Navycenter_img View post tag: ESPS Méndez Núñez US Navy aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and ships from its carrier strike group (ABECSG) departed Naval Station Norfolk for the final pre-deployment exercise on January 25.The undertaking is called the Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) and is designed to assess a strike group’s ability to conduct military operations at sea and project power ashore through joint planning and execution of challenging and realistic training scenarios.USS Abraham Lincoln is scheduled to deploy in April this year, for the first time since 2013 when the ship started a four-year refueling overhaul. Lincoln departed the shipyard in Virginia in May 2017 and has since completed carrier qualifications (CQ) for the F-35C Lightning II and helped test ATARI – a system designed to remotely land aircraft on a carrier. Lincoln also hosted film crews aboard shooting footage for the Top Gun sequel.During COMPTUEX, ABECSG will be evaluated on their ability to integrate all assets of the strike group into a cohesive, multi-mission fighting force, and their ability to carry out sustained combat operations at sea. The goal of COMPTUEX is to achieve certification for deployment.ABECSG is comprised of its flagship, the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 7, the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) and ships assigned to Destroyer Squadron 2: the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Bainbridge (DDG 96), USS Gonzalez (DDG 66), USS Mason (DDG 87) and USS Nitze (DDG 94).In addition, the Spanish Navy Álvaro de Bazán-class frigate ESPS Méndez Núñez (F 104) is joining CSG 12 for the exercise.
