Fewer office deals at close of 2010 for Central London

first_imgSunday 20 February 2011 10:15 pm whatsapp THE CENTRAL London office market saw a patchy end to 2010, according to research seen by City A.M., with the total number of deals in the fourth quarter down 19 per cent on the same time the previous year.Large office rent deals for JP Morgan, Bloomberg and BNP Paribas made up almost half of the 4.5m square feet of space taken, said figures compiled by Equipe Real Estate.The Square Mile fared even worse than the London average, with deals down 31 per cent compared with the previous quarter and the number of contracts signed for small offices of less than 50,000 square feet falling back to levels last seen in early 2009.West End office deals were eight per cent down on the previous quarter – the area’s fifth consecutive decline, despite annual take-up rising 13 per cent to 4.6m square feet. In the City, banking and financial firms made up just nine per cent of office moves, after Bloomberg skewed figures in favour of business services with its deal to build new headquarters on the Bucklersbury House site near Bank station.“The full year statistics are positive, but detailed analysts shows that the market is still delicately poised,” said Equipe’s researchers. “We are cautiously optimistic.” KCS-content whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Inside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com Tags: NULL Fewer office deals at close of 2010 for Central London last_img read more

Credit Suisse profits higher than forecast

first_img CREDIT Suisse delivered a solid first-quarter performance yesterday only marred by a large debt writedown that pulled profits down 45 per cent. Strong revenues in its investment banking division and healthy fund inflows generated group pre-tax profit of SwFr1.6bn Swiss francs (£1.1bn), higher than the consensus forecast for SwFr 1.5bn.However, its profit was down from the SwFr2.9bn recorded in the same quarter in 2010 as it wrote off SwFr617m from its own debt and related derivatives after issuing and selling about £6.5bn of contingent convertible (co-co) bonds in the quarter. The strength of the Swiss franc against the dollar and euro also hindered the bank’s performance – BNP Paribas analyst Olivia Frieser pointed out that the 25 per cent fall in group profit would have been 15 per cent in dollar terms.“In a quarter marked by significant market uncertainty we have maintained our strong momentum with clients, gaining market share and generating SwFr19.1bn net new assets,” said chief executive Brady Dougan.Credit Suisse’s investment banking arm turned in a strong performance, generating a SwFr1.3bn pre-tax profit on revenues of SwFr4.9bn. While profit fell 25 per cent compared with the same quarter in 2010, it beat market expectations of SwFr1.2bn, while revenues fell only six per cent.“Underwriting, advisory and equities were below expectations, but fixed income, currency and commodities (FICC) above,” said Frieser. Pre-tax profit at its private banking division fell eight per cent to SwFr855m from SwFr892m in 2010, while its asset management arm saw profits rise four per cent year-on-year to SwFr172m from SwFr166m in 2010.

Swedish parliament passes gambling bill in landslide vote

first_img Swedish parliament passes gambling bill in landslide vote Legal & compliance Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Sweden’s parliament yesterday (Thursday) approved proposed changes to national gambling laws by voting 282-19 in favour of a new bill. Due to come into effect from January 1, 2019, the bill includes rules that cover licensing, international cooperation, responsible gambling, supervision and fees. Operators will have to pay SEK400,000 (€38,900/$45,900) for a licence, and for companies that want to offer both online gambling and betting, this fee will be increased to SEK700,000. Sweden intends to open the licensing process for the new laws on August 1 this year. Parliament gave its approval to the bill after the country’s Committee on Cultural Affairs earlier this week also announced its support for the mooted changes. However, the European Commission is still running the rule over secondary legislation, while the Swedish Gambling Authority may also opt to introduce other new rules and regulations.Related articles: Swedish Cultural Affairs Committee backs gaming bill Sweden pushes back licence applications to 1 August Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 8th June 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Sweden’s parliament yesterday (Thursday) approved proposed changes to national gambling laws by voting 282-19 in favour of a new billlast_img read more
