Mike Jervis, partner and joint administrator for PwC said: “Regrettably, the redundancies made today were necessary for economic reasons where there has been little or no interest in the business from prospective purchasers or where there was insufficient work for staff to carry out.”The auditor said more than 100 firms had expressed an interest in the business, and that it will continue to meet with suitors today to draw up a shortlist.

Going forward we could be using more price adjustments via interest rates,” he said, adding that he expected five rate increases by the end of next year.China has raised interest rates just once this year as it has guided its monetary policy back to normal from the ultra-loose settings it adopted to counter the global financial crisis. Instead, it has used quantitative tools to do the heavy work, officially raising banks’ reserve requirements five times.Along with playing a role in the fight against inflation, policy tightening also signals confidence that the world’s second-largest economy is on solid ground, even as the U.S. and European recoveries remain fragile.“China has no need now to worry about overall demand at all,” said Dong Xian’an, chief economist with Industrial Securities in Beijing. “Instead, the top priority is to curb inflation and avoid economic overheating.”“The sooner China acts and the more forceful measures it takes, the better,” he said.Consumer price inflation hit a 25-month high in October of 4.4 per cent and is expected to have edged higher in November. Although it has been driven almost exclusively by food prices, pressures have been broadening on the back of higher global commodity costs.China’s cabinet vowed last month to take “forceful” measures, including price controls if necessary, to rein in inflation.A major prong of the government’s stimulus programme was a flood of lending by banks. China has already begun to rein in loan issuance this year and the shift to a prudent monetary policy could signal more restrictions next year.Wang Han, economist with advisory firm CEBM in Shanghai, said a prudent policy could imply a new lending target of 6.5 trillion yuan, down about 15 per cent from this year’s total. last_img read more

Misys said it received 13 new orders for BankFusion, which handles lending, deposits, and payment transactions as well as treasury and trade services, in the period. Other new solutions, such as trade finance systems for importers and exporters, accounted for 60 per cent of licence orders, up from 16 per cent the previous year. Banking division revenues are expected to dip slightly to £76-77m, down from £79.7m in 2009. But its treasury and capital markets arm saw forecast orders fall to £38-39m, from £40.9m, as orders were delayed.

Analysts had expected an unchanged reading.Bank Deputy Governor Charles Bean said on Monday that policymakers were watching inflationary pressures “like proverbial hawks” and admitted inflation had been uncomfortably above target.Inflation for food and non-alcoholic beverages rose 5.5 per cent on the year, its biggest rise since May 2009, driven by increases in the cost of bread, cereals and poultry.Clothing prices rose by an annual 2.1 percent, its fastest rate since comparable records began in 1997.Slowdowns in the pace of inflation for transport, recreation and culture, and restaurants and hotels to their lowest since 2009 were not enough to stop the rise in the annual rate of consumer price inflation.On the month, consumer price inflation picked up to 0.4 per cent from 0.3 per cent in October.The retail price inflation gauge, which includes more housing costs and is the benchmark for many wage deals rose unexpectedly to 4.7 per cent from 4.5 per cent in October.

Mortgage lending slumps to lowest point for a decade

first_img MORTGAGE lending has sunk to its lowest level since 2000 for five consecutive months, it was revealed yesterday.In November lending dropped by five per cent to £11.1bn compared to the previous month, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).A huge 10 per cent drop from last year’s November figures is partly accounted for by a rush to seal property deals in November 2009 before stamp duty concessions expired.Along with seasonal factors, the stamp duty changes make the drop appear worse than it is – yet the news still “reinforces the picture of a continuing flat market,” said CML economist Bob Pannell.Gross mortgage lending for next year will level out at around £135bn, he said. Prior to the credit crunch, lending reached £363bn in 2007.The Bank of England has shown mortgage approvals levelling down at around 45,000 per month, for September to November. Nationwide and the Halifax both showed slight falls in house prices for November.“House prices will not crash but will trend down gradually to lose around 10 per cent from their peak 2010 levels by the end of 2011,” said Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight. Tight credit continues to hold back the housing market, and some commentators fear a rise in interest rates could further deter buyers.But low rates, low prices and high rental yields make the market “a great opportunity for anyone who is able to secure a mortgage,” said David Whittaker of Mortgages for Business.

Our message should be that we’re open for talent from all over the world.”A spokesperson for the mayor said last night: “The mayor’s words are not meant to be inflammatory, he is calling for something the government has said it ultimately wants to do.“The top rate comes on top of other things that make it more difficult in London, such as the bonus tax and the banking levy. All these add up to a fairly hostile mood for the City.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof last_img read more
