CML: Lending weak in July

first_img MORTGAGE lending in July continued to be weak in what is often a strong month, according to the latest figures released yesterday from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).The CML said mortgage lenders issued 56,000 new mortgages worth £8.4bn in July, up slightly on June’s figure of 52,000 mortgages at £7.7bn and 53,000 mortgages worth £7.3bn a year ago.There were also 28,000 remortgages worth £3.5bn in July, unchanged from June and down from 40,000 (£4.9bn) in July 2009.Meanwhile, loans for first time buyers declined to 19,400 in July, from 19,700 the previous month and from 20,100 in July 2009.Average deposits also increased, the CML said. The average deposit first time buyers had to find was 24 per cent in July, up from 21 per cent in April and May. Meanwhile borrowers are now opting for repayment mortgages over interest only with 90 per cent of first-time buyers taking out a repayment mortgage, compared with 67 per cent in July 2007. Ray Boulger, senior technical manager at mortgage broker John Charcoal, suggested housing market activity was likely to remain subdued for “a long time”. He added: “I don’t believe house prices will fall dramatically because the problems are not around affordability but deposits. With interest rates as low as they are it will mean that people can afford to pay their current mortgage but they may not be able to move because they don’t have the equity in their current home But that means they won’t be putting their homes on the market either, so there won’t be a flood of properties onto the market to bring prices down.” Show Comments ▼ KCS-content CML: Lending weak in July whatsapp Tags: NULL Monday 13 September 2010 8:44 pm Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Share whatsapplast_img read more

KPMG joins rivals on new hiring spree

first_img Tags: NULL KCS-content Share BIG FOUR accounting firm KPMG has joined the ranks of its accountancy rivals as it plans to recruit 8,000 new staff across Europe within the next three years. The hiring spree, as reported in the Financial Times, will see the firm’s British arm grow by 3,000 new staff over the period.Once the recruitment drive is done, KPMG will have bolstered its headcount in the UK from 11,000 to 14,000 and its European offices, excluding France and Italy, will increase to 38,000 employees. The move by KPMG follows similar announcements by Big Four rivals Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and Ernst & Young (E&Y).Deloitte revealed plans earlier this year to add 55,000 new staff across its global office network in the next five years, while hiring plans for E&Y are expected later today. John Griffith-Jones, joint partner of KPMG’s European business, said that although the past few years have been difficult, the audit giant sees a lot of opportunities opening up again. Accounting firms were hit hard during the recession, with the largest firms recently receiving criticism for their auditing practices. whatsapp whatsapp KPMG joins rivals on new hiring spree center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Summer hols give a lift to Eurotunnel

first_img Share Summer hols give a lift to Eurotunnel EUROTUNNEL, the operator of the Channel Tunnel, said yesterday a bumper summer helped boost revenues for the year so far by 10 per cent. The Paris-based firm said core revenue for the three months to the end of September grew eight per cent compared to last year to €181.3m (£159m). This rose to €212.1m when sales from Eurotunnel’s recent rail freight acquisitions were included, the firm said in an update. The company said truck shuttle traffic rose 50 per cent in the third quarter of the year, as commercial transport began to recover. Sales of Eurostar tickets rose three per cent to 2.66m in the quarter, despite the volume of passenger trains falling by 23 per cent compared to last year. “The advantages the tunnel offers made the difference in a market which remained challenging and despite intense competition,” said Eurotunnel boss Jacques Gounon.Eurotunnel made a joint bid with Goldman Sachs and M&G earlier this year for High Speed 1, the railway development between London and Folkestone being sold off by the government and valued at £2bn.Gounon said the consortium was working hard but wanted to “pay the right price for the asset”. “We believe we can generate synergies and can bring additional traffic” to the high speed line, he added. whatsapp KCS-content More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.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.com Monday 18 October 2010 8:22 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Blacks fields potential buyers

first_img Share Blacks fields potential buyers Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Tuesday 19 October 2010 7:43 pm CAMPING and hiking retailer Blacks Leisure yesterday confirmed it has received several approaches to take over all or parts of its business.Shares in the company rose 25 per cent to 42.50p following the news that Blacks has taken on financial advisers McQueen to help field potential offers. The share price gives the company a market capitalisation of around £35m. Blacks did not reveal the number or names of the potential biders, and added in a statement: “There is no certainty that any formal offers will be forthcoming or as to the terms on which any such offer might be made.”Blacks declined to comment further yesterday. A spokesperson for Lion Capital, a private equity group that made an offer for the retailer in 2009, declined to comment on whether it was one of the parties involved. Lion already owns the Cotswold Outdoor retail chain. Blacks, which runs the Blacks Outdoor and Milletts chains, came close to administration last year before striking a rescue deal with creditors that saw it close over 100 stores. It raised £20m in May to accelerate turnaround plans, after reporting an annual pre-tax loss of £47m. Plans include refurbishing stores and opening 35 new ones on more favourable terms.The fundraising was opposed by shareholder Sports Direct International, which considered a bid for Blacks before walking away. Sport Direct, owned by billionaire Mike Ashley, still owns a stake of around 14 per cent in Blacks, but was unavailable for comment yesterday on whether it is in the running to bid this time. CLIVE BAKERMCQUEENBlacks has appointed McQueen, a financial advisory firm with a focus on consumer M&A, debt issues and strategy. The team is led by financial veteran Clive Baker, who spent 19 years building up the private equity business at corporate finance house Hawkpoint before leaving in 2002 to co-found McQueen. The company was named after the Great Escape actor Steve McQueen while in the planning stages, as four directors and six junior bankers worked to set up the firm. The team of advisers has now grown to 17. McQueen is currently advising BWin for its ongoing €2.5bn merger with Party Gaming. It also advised Bay Restaurant Group on its £19.5m sale of ha ha bar & grill to leisure giant Mitchells and Butlers in September. The McQueen name is linked to a number of high-profile names in retail, from grocer Waitrose, which bought several supermarkets from its client Sandpiper, through to luxury shoe-maker Kurt Geiger, which was sold to Graphite Capital by Barclays Private Equity for £95m in 2008. Baker himself is also something of a high-flyer, having taken part in the sale of big stakes in Birmingham and Luton Airports by Bridgepoint and Barclays Private Equity respectively during his time at Hawkpoint. center_img Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapplast_img read more

Rolet to speak out on regulation

first_img London Stock Exchange chief executive Xavier Rolet will appear next week before the Treasury select committee, to give evidence on its inquiry into financial regulation in the UK. Rolet has been vocal in his opposition to new proposals to split the regulation of the primary and secondary capital raising markets, under which the former will pass to the Financial Reporting Council and the latter to the new Consumer Protection and Markets Authority. Rolet believes that the rules could “severely” impact London’s competitiveness. He will be joined as a witness before the committee of MPs by Jacques Aigrain, chairman of clearing house LCH.Clearnet.
