Barclays sets up new office in Hong Kong

first_imgWednesday 24 November 2010 9:05 pm Barclays sets up new office in Hong Kong BARCLAYS Wealth has set up a booking centre in Hong Kong, the firm announced yesterday, as part of its plans to quadruple assets under management and double its number of private bankers in Asia over the next four years. An undisclosed number of UK staff will temporarily relocate to help set up the booking centre, a source close to the bank said yesterday. The facility allows private banking customers in Asia to retain assets in Hong Kong, rather than using the bank’s existing booking centre in Singapore. The company refused to reveal the value of the assets it manages in the region, but said around two-thirds of its £153.5bn asset pile is held outside the UK. Barclays Wealth North Asia head Joanna Chu said: “This is an important milestone for us in Hong Kong… Our North Asian clients now have the additional option of having their assets managed in a location closer to them.”It is part of Barclays’ attempt to expand aggressively in the Asia Pacific region. The bank is thought to have around 100 wealth managers in Asia, with plans to triple this number within five years. Barclays Wealth also signed up to a Japanese joint private banking venture in June. One analyst who did not wish to be named yesterday said the bank might be over-ambitious with its expansion goals. “Their target to quadruple assets under management in Asia really depends a lot on market conditions improving. Without a global recovery they won’t come close,” the analyst said. “It also depends on the base level of assets under management, which the company has not mentioned.”People familiar with the firm said Barclays continued to look at relocating its base outside of the UK, but stressed that no decision has yet been made and that the new office in Hong Kong is not part of a general move abroad.City A.M. revealed exclusively last month that senior executives at Barclays Bank are weighing up the cost of moving the group’s headquarters overseas.

Government names new Financial Policy Committee members

first_imgThursday 17 February 2011 10:55 am alison.lock Share The government has named four members of the Bank of England’s new Financial Policy Committee and given more details on how it is to overhaul UK financial regulation.The new committee, to be headed by governor Mervyn King and include members of the soon to be disbanded watchdog the Financial Services Authority, is part of plans to strengthen the Bank’s role in keeping the financial system stable. Former US Federal Reserve vice chairman Donald Kohn, ex-Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank banker Michael Cohrs, former BoE monetary policymaker Richard Lambert and ex-BoE executive Alastair Clark will join the FPC as external members, the Treasury has said.“Today’s announcements are a crucial milestone in implementing the government’s plans for fundamental reform of financial regulation,” Treasury minister Mark Hoban said.The FPC will be a macroprudential counterpart to the BoE’s Monetary Policy Committee, with a mandate to try to prevent risks such as asset or credit bubbles from destabilising the financial system.It will exist as an interim body until legislation for the new regulatory framework has been passed by parliament, expected by the end of next year. A complete range of proposals and draft legislation will be presented in the coming months.The Treasury said the FPC would be required to “pursue financial stability in a balanced way”, to counter concerns that a strict regime could damage London’s competitiveness as a financial hub.“It is vital that the FPC’s objective for financial stability be balanced by a need to consider the wider impact its actions may have, particularly on long-term sustainable economic growth,” the Treasury said in its proposals.

first_img The Apopka High School Debate Team is a relatively new endeavor, having been started only three years ago.In competitions historically dominated by well-established and well-funded teams from other schools, Apopka is the perpetual underdog. Despite this, debate teams from Apopka High School have managed to qualify for nationals for the second year in a row.At the end of May, AHS will be sending four competitors to Sacramento, California in order to be compete at the Grand National Tournament. This by itself would be a remarkable achievement for a new team.However, Apopka is sending another team to Salt Lake City in June to the National Speech and Debate Tournament, the largest academic competition in the world and the most prestigious debate tournament in America.Unfortunately, despite extensive school support and tireless fundraising efforts, the AHS Debate Team needs additional funds for the costs associated with attending the two major national tournaments. The team is appealing to the people of Apopka for support to help cover the expenses.With the community’s help, the team hopes to proudly represent Apopka in front of a national audience in just a few short weeks.The Apopka High School Debate Team wishes to thank the following donors/partners who have helped us thus far:Apopka Chick-fil-AApopka Northwest Chili’sThe Central Florida Debate InitiativeThe North Florida Catholic Forensic LeagueKelli Mitchell of the Wekiva Debate TeamNick EagleHolly FussellStuart SwirskyThe Donaghy, Hamilton, and Uhlig familiesAll of the team members who have been selling candy on the weekendsDonations can be made directly to the Apopka High School Debate Team with check or cash.

Cumbres House is a residential project located in the Cumbres neighborhood of Santa Fe in Mexico City. The shape of the house arises from exploiting the maximum allowed space due to restrictions on the ground floor.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!PlanThe main premise of the project was to design the house to be inhabited by a person with disabilities, and that he was able to move around the house alone. Each space needed to be studied for the correct function and performance of family activities.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoWe decided to place an elevator with a skylight in the house, articulating the three levels with the program of activities.

The surroundings of this apartment are defined as a residential area and semi-industrial area in urban planning and their height is suppressed to low by road diagonal limitation and sun shadow regulation. In this sense, the void above which nobody can occupy physically is kept as a secondary product of this regulation. In Japan, the city is always going to be renewed by the buildings scrapped and built repeatedly. On the other hand, the void in the sky keeps to exist from the past to present and it is expected to be continued to the future.Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaSave this picture!Perspective SectionSave this picture!© Kenta HasegawaWhen I designing architecture in such a dynamic urban situation, the void in the sky can be referred to as the static foundation. This apartment is composed of 7 studios. They are stacked in 6 floors including a basement floor. Floor height is suppressed to 2,500mm and minimized staircase is located in the center. L-shaped unit or maisonnette unit in which L-shaped space shifted and overlapped are enclosing staircase core.Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaSave this picture!© Kenta HasegawaUnits have more or less 2.5meters width but long dwelling volumes, and their ends are basically opened as a terrace or a bathroom. This spatial composition allows every dwelling to have multi-directed windows and they can face on the surrounding void thoroughly without generating building backside. Because of the tiny width of each dwellings, all space inside is recognized as a perimeter or window side. Whether willing or not, the distance between the body inside and window is so short that the person must feel to take a spill to the outside or that the void is held to a room inside in bodily sensation.Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Kenta HasegawaProject gallerySee allShow lessParks Library / JPE Design StudioSelected ProjectsThe Emergency of Beijing Water Group / 6A8 studioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tokiwadai, Itabashi City, Tokyo 174-0071, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.
