Bratislava is one of 19 cities vying for the European Medicines Agency

Cities fight to win key EU agencies from London

A decision on the future location of two key European agencies will be made on Monday through a complex voting process.

Warnings, downgrades weigh as European shares set for weekly fall

Disappointing earning updates and a series of broker downgrades weighed on European shares on Friday, leaving regional indexes on track for their second weekly fall in a row. Investors have been locking in profits, shrugging off continued strength in economic data as eurozone earnings growth slowed compared to the previous quarters and caution grew over whether a stock market rally could continue. On Friday, Elior (ELIOR.PA) slumped 12 percent after Europe’s third-largest catering group cut its profit guidance, citing the impact of Hurricane Irma. Shares in Fresenius SE (FREG.DE), Greene King (GNK.L), Just Eat (JE.L), United Utilities (UU.L) and H&M (HMb.ST) all fell ...

London will remain Europe's financial capital - Bloomberg

Michael Bloomberg, the businessman and former New York mayor, said London will remain a global financial capital after Brexit. He told the BBC that the UK's departure from the EU would probably slow the capital's growth, but would not see it eclipsed by a European rival. London's benefits were its culture and the English language, Mr Bloomberg said. Recently he called Brexit the "single dumbest thing" a country has ever done. Mr Bloomberg, whose data terminals are used by many dealers and bankers, last week opened a new European headquarters in London between the Bank of England and St Paul's Cathedral. The 3.2 acre ...

Credit Suisse to pay $135m to settle NY investigation

Credit Suisse has agreed to pay $135m (£103m) after New York regulators found its foreign exchange unit engaged in "unlawful, unsafe and unsound conduct". The probe found traders at the bank improperly co-ordinated with other banks and traded on confidential customer information. The agreement is the latest settlement to arise from a global investigation of foreign currency markets. Credit Suisse said it was pleased "to put this matter behind it". It did not admit or deny the findings of the investigation but pledged to overhaul its policies to improve oversight and submit progress reports to New York regulators for review. The New York Department of ...

Kenya Airways has finished restructuring $2 billion of debt, the carrier said on Wednesday, completing a key part of its turnaround plan after heavy losses. The airline’s top shareholder, the Kenyan government, and 11 local lenders converted the bulk of their debts into shares, helping to relieve cash flow pressure. “This has been a $2 billion restructuring,” Mbuvi Ngunze, the former Kenya Airways CEO who has been advising on the transaction since June, told Reuters. That figure includes full commitments to financiers and operating aircraft leasing companies, which are not normally reflected in the balance sheet, he said. As part of its assistance to ...

Japan's economy posts longest growth streak since 2001

Japan's economy has expanded for seven quarters in a row in the longest period of growth in more than a decade. Data showed gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annualised rate of 1.4% between July and September. The solid quarterly result comes after more than four years of economic stimulus by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Exports and stronger global demand for Japanese products has driven the expansion which helped offset a dip in consumer spending at home. Martin Schulz, senior fellow at the Fujitsu Research Institute in Tokyo said the economy has been boosted by very strong export demand, growing at 6%. With the ...

US leads world in oil and gas production, IEA says

International energy markets are set for "major upheaval" as the US cements its status as the world's largest oil and gas producer, while China overtakes it as the biggest oil consumer. The predictions come from the International Energy Agency's annual energy forecast. It believes that global energy demand will rise 30% by 2040, driven by higher consumption in India. At the same time, the renewable energy sources will become more important. The IEA, which tracks the energy for 29 countries, said the US - once reliant on imports - is becoming the "undisputed global oil and gas leader". It expects the US to account for ...

HSBC to pay €300m to settle tax investigation

HSBC has agreed to pay €300m ($353m; £266m) to French authorities to settle a long-running investigation into tax evasion by French clients. The French financial prosecutor's office claimed HSBC's Swiss private banking unit helped clients evade tax. Europe's largest bank has acknowledged "control weaknesses" and said it had taken firm steps to address them. Payment of the fine will close the case against HSBC but two former directors could yet face legal action. More than €1.6bn of assets were involved in the scheme, according to a statement from the French financial prosecutor. The investigation started in 2014 after a former IT employee leaked ...

Facebook ad revenue tops $10 billion

Facebook profits soared in the third quarter as it brought in more than $10bn from advertising. The firm said profits were $4.7bn (£3.5bn) in the three months to the end of September, up 80% year-on-year. Chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told investors the firm's investments in security would "impact" profitability.

Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority (ERCA) said it was putting in place measures to curtail the worrying trend.

They also related how an Ethiopian – born U.S. national was detained for ...

Social media firms under scrutiny for 'Russian meddling’

Facebook, Twitter and Google lawyers defended themselves to US lawmakers probing whether Russia used social media to influence the 2016 election. The three firms faced hard questions at a Senate panel on crime and terrorism about why they missed political ads bought with Russian money. Lawmakers are eyeing new regulations for social media firms in the wake of Russia's alleged meddling in 2016. The firms said they would tighten advertising policies and guidelines. Senator Al Franken, a Democrat from Minnesota, asked Facebook - which absorbed much of the heat from lawmakers - why payment in Russian rubles did not tip off the firm ...
