The government has unveiled plans to get tough on corporate crime in an attempt to hold businesses to account for any unscrupulous behaviour.The Ministry of Justice is concerned the bar is set too high for proving criminal offences such as fraud, money laundering and false accounting, meaning many prosecutions are successful. “Companies must be held to account for the criminal activity that takes place within them,” said justice minister Oliver Heald. “I want to restore public faith in business and make sure we have the right tools available to crack down on corporate criminality.”Barry Vitou, a partner at law firm Pinsent Masons explained today’s news was a watershed moment. He said: Government wants to restore faith in Britain’s businesses by shaking up corporate crime laws The gravitas of such changes was stressed by Louise Hodges, a partner at City law firm Kingsley Napley. She said: Corporate misconduct laws were previously shaken up in 2011 with the introduction of the Bribery Act.Under current laws, companies are subject to unlimited fines and staff can face up to 10 years in prison if they are unable to show “adequate procedures” are in place to prevent staff and agents from committing bribery anywhere in the world. Oliver Gill Read more: Criminal finance bill set to give police powers to delay M&AThe government revealed a host of options remained on the table including introducing US-style “vicarious” liability – effectively holding companies responsible for the actions of their staff whether or not companies were aware of such actions.Striking fear whatsapp This would present the greatest regime-change and the mere fact of its inclusion will strike fear in the corporate world. However, others noted the rationale behind the proposed changes. “Given the increasingly cross-jurisdictional nature of investigations, there are good reasons for bringing the UK more in line with the US,” said Elly Proudlock, counsel at Wilmerhale.Read more: White collar crime crackdown expected in 2017The head of the Serious Fraud Office, David Green, has for many years argued that because of complex corporate structures, it is hard to prove management involvement in misconduct in multi-national firms in particular. Current laws stipulate prosecutors must prove executives were either aware or approved any illegal actions.Green has advocated making a businesses criminally liable for the actions of its staff unless it can show it has taken steps to prevent the fraudulent offending.Red tape”Although potentially attractive, the ability for a company to predict and protect itself against every possible fraud that could be committed leaves the discretion to prosecute wide open and corporates facing increasing compliance costs and red-tape,” said Hodges.Read more: Government to consider new crimes for companiesThe government has asked for suggestions and responses to its plans by 24 March. Friday 13 January 2017 2:28 pm Share whatsapp The call for evidence looks like a victory for those who have been campaigning to block a reform of the fraud laws concerning corporate crime. There has been until now a broad consensus that the law needed changing.
US-based Exxon Mobil is gauging interest in a potential takeover from BP’s major shareholders, it has been reported. Shell and Chevron are also said to be interested in a potential takeover.If successful, the deal with Exxon will be the biggest oil takeover of all time, but it would likely face opposition from the government. Both firms have declined to comment on speculation.The BBC noted BP would have to disclose if Exxon had made an offer.”With the oil outlook much more positive (at least until the plunge in crude prices this week), the British icon looks more attractive once the weaker pound is taken into account,” said Chris Beauchamp, analyst at IG. Beauchamp added: “This is one deal that won’t escape the regulator however, and it will also be a tough one for Downing Street. Do they play the ‘global buccaneering free trade UK’ card, or the ‘sacred national interest’ one? While the shares have rallied 3.5 per cent, the limited gains on such a remarkable story suggest that, for now, traders remain sceptical that BP is about to depart the scene.” whatsapp Friday 10 March 2017 3:50 pm Shares in oil major BP have risen today as speculation reemerges about takeover interest from Exxon Mobil, the world’s largest listed oil company.Shares in the FTSE 100-listed firm were up 4.01 per cent at 472.2p in late afternoon trading. BP’s share price lifts on speculation of a takeover by Exxon Mobil whatsapp Talk of a takeover has circled the oil firm since its Deepwater Horizon spill tanked its share price in 2010.After the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, killing 11 people and spewing 3.2m gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico across an 87-day period, BP’s shares more than halved from 651.46p to 305.73p. Shares still haven’t fully recovered, and investors are said to be unimpressed.Last month, BP said it’s back in the black after slashing costs during 2016. It managed to pull its numbers up, but a “challenging” full year price environment with Brent crude averaging $44 per barrel meant the company missed its forecasts.

Share Friday 15 June 2018 9:59 am Christian May The reality, as those in business know only too well, is that life goes on. This is true for the Europeans, as well. The European Central Bank may have signalled yesterday the end of its epic (and controversial) quantitative easing policy, but the project still faces a number of challenges that it would have to confront with or without the departure of the UK.With the UK set to leave, however, member states who do not exhibit enthusiasm for ever closer union will feel keenly the loss of Britain’s restraining influence in Brussels. Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, who enjoyed a good relationship with David Cameron and was supportive of the former UK leader’s efforts to slow (and reverse) the pace of EU integration, gave a speech last week on ‘the future of Europe’.While he stands behind the project’s fundamental aims and achievements, he has taken up the mantle of questioning the centralising instincts of EU officials. He told MEPs that: “More and more Europe isn’t the answer to the many problems that people face in their daily lives. For some, ‘ever closer union’ is still a goal in itself. Not for me. Unity and ‘ever closer union’ are not the same. You don’t achieve unity by simply doing more in more areas. You achieve it by doing things really well in a few important areas.”There are plenty of officials in Brussels who agree with him, but the UK’s departure means they’ll likely be drowned out by those who do not.Lady Wilson rememberedLast week we learned of the death of Lady Wilson, wife of the late Labour Prime Minister, Harold Wilson. The obituaries all mentioned the Wilsons’ connection with the Isles of Scilly, my family home and the place where the former PM felt most relaxed. He is buried in the churchyard of the beautiful Old Town church. It’s likely that Mary will soon lie next him. The Wilsons’ modest bungalow on St Mary’s, the main island, sits next to that of my great great aunt, Joan, who became firm friends with the Wilsons, especially Mary. Harold’s armed protection team used to sleep in Joan’s spare room and even in recent years the two elderly widows would enjoy a drink and a gossip. They would often come to my mother’s restaurant together. Joan, now 104 and still on Scilly, recalls that even long after Harold’s death Mary would apologise for never having her round for a meal, explaining that the dining room table was still covered in her husband’s papers.Michael Spencer backs British bubbly Editor’s Notes: Without the UK, the EU can resume its march to ever closer union, Nex’s Michael Spencer backs British bubbly and Lady Wilson remembered This column has often noted Michael Spencer’s deep affection for wine, so it is no surprise that the City veteran has upped his stake in Chapel Down, the English winemaker. Spencer, who is soon to net a cool £600m from the sale of Nex to CME, is now the largest shareholder of Chapel Down, with 25.9 per cent in his pocket. He says “we need to support home grown industry” – putting him on the same page as Tim Martin, the Wetherspoons boss, who has announced that English fizz will replace French champagne in his pubs. Cheers, gentlemen.Adair Turner’s schedule is a little too crammedFrom time to time I’m asked to chair panels or speak at events, often with several weeks notice, and I try to abide by a simple rule: don’t say yes to something that you’d decline were it taking place tomorrow. This helpful rule should be relayed to former FSA chairman Adair Turner, who pulled out of a think tank event last week, on the day. Organisers were less than impressed, telling guests “Adair Turner has asked his secretary to email us cancelling the seminar” – apparently he was just too busy. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeDivorce Lawyer | Search AdsFind Lawyers To Help You in Your Divorce Lawsuit.Could Be Cheaper Than You Think!Divorce Lawyer | Search AdsHubcaps Unlimited LLC – WheelCovers.ComWheel Skins – Jeep Wheel Skins – Page 3 – WheelCovers.ComHubcaps Unlimited LLC – WheelCovers.ComCleverst25 Songs That Will Go Down As The Best Ever WrittenCleverstweniix.comLook The Future of Carsweniix.comBathroom Remodel Cost | Search AdsNew Bathroom Remodeling Options in 2021 May Surprise You!Bathroom Remodel Cost | Search AdsCarammello14 smartest dog breeds – CarammelloCarammelloUrbanAunty30 Pennies That Are Worth Over $20 Million CombinedUrbanAuntyModern Star LifeTake A Look At Who MSNBC Anchor Joy Reid Is Married To TodayModern Star LifeJournalOlivia Rodrigo Love Triangle Rumors RevealedJournal Earlier this week I chaired a discussion at TheCityUK’s annual conference, where several people, including the lobby group’s chairman, John McFarlane, stressed the point that “there’s life beyond Brexit”.It can’t be said often enough, given how much of our national attention and energy has been sucked into the black hole of Brexit: the uncertainty, the parliamentary theatre and the small but vocal campaign to reverse the referendum result.

Tuesday 18 September 2018 4:52 pm Sebastian McCarthy On the superhighway’s East West route from Tower Hill to Lancaster Gate there are roughly 754 more riders per day compared with 2014/15, which means the flagship scheme has cost over £62,000 for every extra cyclist attracted to the route.TfL’s commissioner Mike Brown recently said that the speed at which the project was delivered was “ill-judged”.Read more: Ride-hailing firm Taxify enters the electric scooter marketSteve McNamara, general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association, told LBC: “This cycle lane has been an absolute disaster for London.

This is not good leadership.However, recognising the issue has enabled me to deal with my own anxieties and change my behaviour to improve as a leader, setting a better example for my team and my peers.Let me be clear, there’s no magic cure for imposter syndrome. Drag queen diva RuPaul calls it your “inner saboteur”. You can’t get rid of it, but you can manage it better.It all comes down to using effective coping strategies. One I use is creating a “Yay Me” folder – every time I feel really proud of something or get excellent feedback, I save it all to a folder on my computer. Then, when I’m feeling not-so-good, I can go back to it and remind myself that I am competent – excellent, even. This ties into the other part of my strategy – note a reason every day detailing why you belong and why you are epic at what you do, and ban the word “lucky” from your vocabulary.As business leaders, we need to learn to accept different ways of working, and encourage diversity within organisations.It’s true that women are more inclined to experience imposter syndrome and tend to feel it more acutely. And if you are from an ethnic minority, it can be extremely difficult not to feel like an imposter when nobody else round the table looks like you.We must strive to make the workplace somewhere that doesn’t make anyone feel out of place by prioritising inclusivity as a business goal, and by allowing people to admit openly when they are struggling. The alternative isn’t pretty.Beyonce created Sasha Fierce as a stage alter-ego to help overcome her fears. Let’s create our own Sasha personas – for me it’s expressed through fashion – to help reassure us that we have earned and deserve our achievements. Because you know what? I’m brilliant, and so are you. Tuesday 20 November 2018 10:38 am I have a confession. My whole working life, I have carried a secret: I feel like I’m going to be found out. This feeling is called “imposter syndrome”, and through telling my story, I have learned that I am not alone.Some of the best of us have experienced it: Albert Einstein, American poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou, and even the mighty Beyonce. whatsapp whatsapp But beyond the big names, studies suggest that 70 per cent of professionals experience imposter syndrome.As an industry, we are very good at packaging up a problem with a label and name and then moving on, without considering the real impact on our lives – and, as I’ve found out, our jobs. Imposter syndrome affects my work and development, and that of others too.So consider this my call to all business leaders to address it.Throughout my career, and well before joining Google, I have always felt “lucky” for my successes and unable to recognise my own abilities. This made me feel unfulfilled and blocked my own development – it made me feel like a fraud. The long-term impact of these feelings can cause depression and self-esteem issues. But businesses can help their employees, and individuals can find ways to manage and surmount these crippling anxieties.What I have learned is that, as business leaders, we need to open up the conversation. It’s up to us to de-stigmatise discussions of mental health in the workplace. We need to learn to understand how certain behaviours may affect how an individual perceives their own work.
Fourteen days from now, Parliament will vote on the government’s Brexit deal.The vote will be preceded by four days of formal debate but by the time MPs pass through the division lobbies of the House of Commons, they will have been arguing over this issue for two and a half years. Many have argued about it for a lot longer than that. whatsapp Christian May Iain Duncan Smith, for example, has said only that he won’t support it. The distinction matters, as abstaining on the vote will count as support in the final tally. The other main hope is that Labour MPs abstain, allowing them to claim that while they didn’t obstruct Brexit they didn’t vote in support of the government, either.But as May begins two frantic weeks of campaigning to bring these faint stars into alignment, the odds remain stacked against her. Monday 26 November 2018 9:19 pm Tags: Brexit Iain Duncan Smith People Theresa May As a piece of parliamentary theatre it’s set to be explosive, but beyond the drama of the occasion it will also represent the most consequential political moment of modern times.As things stand, the numbers are not in the government’s favour.Theresa May lost her commons majority following her disastrous 2017 election, and has since imperilled her position further by alienating the DUP, on whose support she relied in a confidence and supply arrangement. From this poor start she also faces an opposition committed to voting against her and a Tory party riddled with dissent.57 of her MPs have pledged to ‘Stand up for Brexit’ while a significant faction of Remain-supporting Tories will vote against the government. The SNP and other smaller parties are also set to vote against. When all is said and done, the government looks to be about 60 votes shy of a majority.So why press on? Is this shaping up to be the most reckless charge since the Light Brigade? Perhaps. But Downing Street insiders find a flicker of hope in the fact that while they command no majority for their own plan, there’s no majority for anyone else’s, either. This might seem like little comfort, but when the nights are cold one clings to whatever scrap of blanket one can find. Speaking of which, Tory whips (whose job it is to secure victory for May) note that not all Tory MPs opposed to the deal have said they’ll vote against it.

Apple has reportedly slashed planned production for its three newest iPhone models by about 10 per cent for the next three months, just one week after the tech giant cut its revenue forecasts.Apple is said to have asked its suppliers to produce less of its iPhone XS, XS Max and XR models than originally planned in the January to March quarter, according to reports by the Nikkei. If accurate, it would be the second time Apple has cut production of its iPhones in the last two months. This latest request was allegedly made before Apple issued a warning on its revenues on 2 January, in which it said revenue for the final three months of 2018 would be around $84bn (£66.8bn).This would be down five per cent from the same period in 2017, and $9bn lower than Apple’s original highest forecast for the quarter. Chief executive Tim Cook told investors that “more than 100 per cent” of its missed revenue could be attributed to a sales decline in China, as demand for its iPhone and iPad products weakened and fewer customers chose to upgrade their smartphones.Read more: Apple shares spiral as investors fight back in securities fraud lawsuitThe cut in revenue guidance was Apple’s first in more than 15 years, and triggered a global market rout as fears of an economic slowdown set in. Under the newly revised plan, a source told the Nikkei that overall production volume of both older and new iPhones will be reduced to between 40m and 43m units for the quarter, down from an earlier projection of 47m to 48m units.

Standard Life Aberdeen wins dispute with Lloyds over management of £100bn assets whatsapp Callum Keown Scottish Widows, part of Lloyds Banking Group, said it was “disappointed” with the decision but would push on with plans to transfer the assets to Schroders and Blackrock.A spokesperson said: “Our strategy remains unchanged, which is to do the right thing for customers.“We will discuss starting the process of an orderly transfer of assets to our new partners BlackRock and Schroders.“We will continue to work closely with Standard Life Aberdeen to ensure there is no disruption to performance or service.”Read more: Schroders and Lloyds to launch financial planning JV in June Read more: Standard Life Aberdeen scraps co-chief executive structureThe bank had argued that Standard Life’s merger with Aberdeen Asset Management allowed it to end the contract to manage around £100bn of its pension assets.The contract was due to expire in 2022 but Lloyds served notice as it said the merger made the investment manager a “material competitor.”Lloyds has since revealed plans to transfer the assets to Schroders and Blackrock but the ruling now throws a spanner in the works.Standard Life Aberdeen chief executive Keith Seoch said the company would “carefully consider” its next steps following the ruling, while continuing to manage the funds in the meantime. Standard Life Aberdeen has won its legal dispute with Lloyds Banking Group over the management of £100bn in assets.An arbitral tribunal has ruled that Lloyds was not entitled to give notice in February last year to terminate its investment management contract with Standard Life Aberdeen. Hargreaves Lansdown analyst Laith Khalaf said: “This is a big victory for Standard Life Aberdeen, and a serious setback for Lloyds’ new foray into wealth management.” “Negotiations will now begin with Standard Life and Lloyds to find some sort of solution.“This could involve Standard Life Aberdeen remaining as manager of the assets until 2022, or Lloyds stumping up some cash for breaking the agreement early,” he added. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likebonvoyaged.comThese Celebs Are Complete Jerks In Real Life.bonvoyaged.comBleacherBreaker4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
