A Canadian walks into the Bank…

This may sound like a good start to a joke, but Mark Carney’s first week has shown that he is serious about shaking things up as Governor of the Bank of England (BoE). In an attempt to shed his ‘rock star’ celebrity status for a more ‘man of the people’ image, Carney joined other City commuters in taking the tube to work and agreed to meet a group of protestors to review female representation on bank notes.

The great SEPA countdown

The race is on to beat the clock and migrate euro payments to Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) instruments by the deadline of 1st February 2014. At long last, the Eurozone will give birth to a (relatively) harmonised payments landscape that should be easier and cheaper to navigate, both domestically and cross-border.

2013: the year of ‘muted optimism’

The Year of the Snake came in with more of a whimper than a hiss, with continuing concern over problems in the Eurozone and the US budget deficit. However, despite the International Monetary Fund (IMF) trimming its growth forecast for the world economy in 2013, after predicting a less vigorous recovery in the US, UK and the leading countries of the Eurozone, the general mood at the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting was moderately buoyant.

Behind the scenes at Sibos

It is always interesting to attend Sibos – the big banking conference – and to hear what the bankers and others are talking about.

Since 1978, the Society for Worldwide Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) has been holding this annual conference, better known as SWIFT’s International Banking Operations Seminar (Sibos) at venues around the world. This year, the conference moved back to Asia and was held in Osaka just a couple of weeks after the Annual IMF meeting was held in Tokyo. This was the first time that Sibos had been held in Japan, which has the third largest economy in the world. Sibos was held in Hong Kong in 2009.

Is a single bank supervisor really what Europe needs?

Plans currently being drawn up by the European Commission (EC) could see the European Central Bank (ECB) designated as the financial watchdog for 6,000 Eurozone banks. According to EU Commissioner Michel Barnier, who is spearheading the proposals for a single supervisory body, banks that have already received support from the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) may come under the auspices of a common regulator from as early as 1st January 2013. The deadline for all Eurozone banks to be under the supervisor’s umbrella is equally ambitious, a mere 12 months later.
