RAB issues a late night profits warning and says it will cut jobs

first_img LONDON based hedge fund operator RAB Capital, warned yesterdfay its full-year loss will be larger than expectations after losing nearly one-quarter of its assets in July and August from poor performance at one of its largest funds and from investor redemptions.Assets sank to $1.05bn at 31 August, from $1.26bn at 30 June and $1.35bn at the start of 2010, because of a 15 per cent loss in its flagship Special Situations fund in the two months, and from a European bank pulling cash from RAB’s fund of funds.The hedge fund, which is famous for having bought shares in Northern Rock before the bank was nationalised, issued the warning after the market closed last night and said that it will have to make cuts to its 100-strong workforce. RAB would not confirm the number of job losses but said the cuts would cause an “exceptional charge” of £5.5m. Barely two weeks after the new chief executive, Charles Kirwan-Taylor took the helm, he said RAB had a strong capital and liquidity position, but that the company’s cost base was too high compared with its revenues and its full-year results would be “significantly” below expectations.

Band Winners Drink Milk

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Band Winners Drink Milk Band Winners Drink Milk By Andy Eubank – Nov 5, 2013 Previous articleGood Yield Report in West-Central IndianaNext articleSign Up Begins for EQUIP Projects Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE Over 200,000 music students get the message that ‘winners drink milk’ throughout the year thanks to Indiana dairy farmers’ sponsorship of Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) events. The sponsorship is coordinated by American Dairy Association Indiana. ISSMA holds the finest marching band contest in the nation according to the judges from all across the country who were in Indianapolis for the recent Marching Band State Finals.While dairy farmers were milking and working on the farm, their check-off program was also at work. Milk commercials were played on the jumbo video boards in the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis during the 12-hour marching band competition. Nearly 30,000 spectators and performers viewed those spots.Four Indiana high school marching bands won $1,000 scholarships from Indiana’s dairy farmers plus a drink from the victory bottle of milk for their championship performances at the 2013 ISSMA Marching Band State Finals. Each school took top honors in its division. The winners were: in class A, the Avon Marching Black and Gold; in class B, the Greenwood Band and Irish Guard; in class C, the Concordia Lutheran Marching Cadets; and in class D, the Forest Park Marching Rangers. Each member of each competing band also received an ice-cold pint of white, chocolate, or strawberry milk after their performance. Prairie Farms Dairy donated the milk served to the band members.“I’m proud of the students and impressed with their dedication and focus,” said Deb Osza, the general manager of ADAI. “Each and every one of those band students is a winner.”The check-off’s partnership with ISSMA helps showcase the role of dairy products in the lives of active teenagers.“Teaching kids how to include at least 3 servings of dairy every day in their diets, in addition to physical activity, will help them develop stronger bones and a healthy lifestyle,” Osza said. “We want them to learn that when they put good energy into their bodies, they get good energy out. We’re working hard to keep milk messages in our schools. Indiana’s dairy check-off program works efficiently and effectively by getting those milk messages in through music education as well as in the classroom and the cafeteria.”Additional $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually to the state champion schools in concert band, mixed chorus, orchestra and state show choir finals by Indiana’s Dairy Farmers, exclusive corporate sponsor of all ISSMA events.Source: American Dairy Association Indiana Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

New Corteva Technology Helps Identify Crop Threats

first_img Facebook Twitter New Corteva Technology Helps Identify Crop Threats Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Identifying threats in the field has always been an important, yet time consuming, process. Now, new technology will give you answers to your disease or insect issues instantly. It is called Threat ID, and from a picture on your phone or tablet, it will tell you what is wrong with your crops.“Threat ID, as part of the Pioneer Seeds App, empowers growers to make more rapid and informed decisions regarding issues they see while walking their fields,” says Jeremy Groeteke, U.S. Pioneer Digital Ag Lead.The app can identify over 400 different threats in over 30 different crops. Threat ID allows farmers to detect issues impacting their fields by simply taking one crop photo. It then recognizes the specific patterns left behind by pests and provides an immediate identification of the most likely pest or disease threats and nutrient deficiencies. It does not, however, tell you what action to take. For that, you still need to have a conversation with your agronomist.The app will even work if you do not have internet access in the field.“It will store the image and the location in the field until you get to a place where you have internet access,” Groeteke said.This app is free and can be downloaded from either Apple or Android app stores, just type in Pioneer seeds.“Adding Threat ID to the Pioneer Seeds App is a result of a strong collaboration between Corteva Agriscience and Plantix,” Groeteke added. “We’re excited to add this new tool to our already comprehensive package of digital solutions for farmers.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleNational FFA Convention & Expo Moves Virtual; FFA Extends Contract With IndyNext articleNew Tech to Help ID Crop Threats and a Tough Week for the Grain Markets on the HAT Monday Morning Edition Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News New Corteva Technology Helps Identify Crop Threats SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 28, 2020 SHARElast_img read more

RWB protests against harassment of representative in Ukraine

A few days before that, hackers posted much of her email correspondence on another site.These actions constitute an unacceptable violation of Romanyuk’s right to privacy. We also regard them as a very clear attempt to intimidate and take revenge against Reporters Without Borders for its work in Ukraine. Our concern is increased by the fact that a growing number of independent journalists have been the victims of similar actions in recent months. This trend, of which the potential intimidatory impact should not be underestimated, could have major consequences for the defence of freedom of information in your country. These actions must not go unpunished.We urge you to do everything in your power to put a stop to these actions and to ensure that they are fully and impartially investigated as breaches of article 182 (violation of the confidentiality of personal data) and article 361 (illegal intrusion into information technology systems) of the Ukrainian criminal code. As far as we know, the police are currently investigating them only as breaches of article 356 (assault). In our view, this is a completely inadequate basis for arriving at the truth and adopting appropriate sanctions.Ukraine has given very clear international undertakings to protect privacy and freedom of information. In February 2013, Ukraine agreed to comply with several recommendations that were submitted as part of its latest Universal Periodic Review by the United Nations Human Rights Council. In particular, Ukraine accepted the need to:• “Create an enabling environment for journalists and media professionals and ensure fully transparent and impartial investigation and prosecution in all cases of attacks against them.” (Recommendation No. 97.119)• “Ensure better protection of journalists and combat abuse and violence to which they are subject.” (Recommendation No. 97.121) October 10, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RWB protests against harassment of representative in Ukraine Christophe DeloireReporters Without Borders secretary-general Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Follow the news on Ukrainelast_img read more

Vendorly, a vendor oversight platform for financial institutions, is providing NTFN with a third-party risk management (TPRM) solution to maximize the company’s TPRM processes and minimize the risk presented by their large network of third-party vendors.Through the Vendorly solution, NTFN has been able to successfully streamline their vendor management procurement and vetting process, saving in excess of 50% of their prior vendor management spend.NTFN is a full-service mortgage banker established in 1992 and headquartered in Lewisville, Texas. NTFN partners with mortgage and technology-fulfillment vendors throughout the U.S. to produce an efficient and credit-worthy loan. NTFN found that in order to continue delivering first-class customer service, their vendor oversight program needed a comprehensive solution to track their 400-plus vendors.NTFN initially managed vendors with a manual in-house process and turned to Vendorly’s software and services to streamline their vendor management procurement and vetting process. With Vendorly’s onboarding tools and TPRM support team, NTFN gained economies of scale and was able to focus on addressing identified vendor risks as opposed to time consuming and more mundane paper and electronic document collection and review. In addition, NTFN was able to save money on Vendorly license costs as a member of Lenders One, a national alliance of independent mortgage bankers.center_img Related Articles Carrollton, Texas-based legal and financial services technology provider, a360inc has announced that Chicago-based Knox Capital, an affiliate of Morgan Stanley Private Credit and ORIX Mezzanine & Private Equity, has made a strategic investment in the company.With this new capital investment, a360inc plans to accelerate the strategic expansion and improvement of its technology and services in the creditors’ rights market through direct investment and acquisition.“Today’s default market is primed for modernization and evolution, and this investment allows us to focus on the future,” said Scott Brinkley, CEO of a360inc. “a360inc sees a massive opportunity in creating a market-leading technology and services platform built around all vendor constituents in our ecosystem: from law firms and their vendors to the ultimate end-client: Mortgage servicers and investors.”The company said that the Knox Capital investment allows a360inc to immediately pursue additional acquisitions that fill gaps in the company’s offerings while facilitating further advances and cross-platform integration of its current technology and outsourced services.“We’re excited to partner with Scott and the team he’s built to help lead a360inc into the future.

She has won two national Mayborn School of Journalism Ten Spurs awards for nonfiction, and has penned pieces for Texas Monthly,, Dallas Observer, Edible, and the Dallas Morning News, among others. Nationwide, 5.8% of mortgage loans are in some stage of delinquency, according to the latest monthly Loan Performance Insights Report from the property data analysts at CoreLogic, which covers data from December 2020.That represents a 2.1-percentage point increase in the overall delinquency rate compared to one year prior when it was 3.7%. However, the researchers report that national overall delinquency has been declining month to month since June 2020.According to CoreLogic, in December 2020, the U.S. delinquency and transition rates, and their year-over-year changes, were as follows:Early-stage or less than 30 days delinquent: 1.4%, down from 1.8% in December 2019Adverse: .5% down from .6% a year before.Serious, or 90-plus days overdue: 3.9%, 1.2% higher than December 2019.Foreclosure inventory rate: .3%, down from .4% during the same period of 2019.The share of mortgages that transitioned from current to 30 days past due, or early delinquency, remained unchanged from December 2019 at .8%.Last year launched with the lowest share of overall delinquencies since data recording started in 1999, CoreLogic reported, but as the pandemic and shelter-in-place directives spread, the rate doubled from 3.6% in March to 7.3% in May, the researchers added. As those initially affected by the pandemic and ensuing recession transitioned through stages of delinquency, serious delinquencies increased four-fold compared to pre-pandemic rates, and they peaked last August.”The ongoing forbearance provisions and economic aid implemented at the start of the pandemic has proved helpful for families faced with financial insecurity,” said Frank Martell, president and CEO of CoreLogic.CoreLogic’s Chief Economist Frank Nothaft confirms the correlation between areas suffering the highest unemployment and those with the fastest growing mortgage delinquencies.“By state, Hawaii and Nevada had the largest 12-month spike in delinquency rates, both up 4.1 percentage points. They also had large increases in unemployment rates, up 6.6 percentage points in Hawaii and 5.5 percentage points in Nevada compared with 3.1 percentage points for the U.S. In Odessa, Texas, unemployment rose by 8.6 percentage points and delinquencies posted a 9.8 percentage-point jump,” he reported.The full report is available on About Author: Christina Hughes Babblast_img read more
