U.S. investment bank Goldman Sachs on Wednesday lost its fight against an EU cartel fine handed down to its former Italian subsidiary and cable maker Prysmian after Europe's top court said it was liable for the actions of the unit. Prysmian was fined 104.6 million euros ($127 million) by EU antitrust regulators in 2014 for taking part in a cartel with 10 other cable makers. Its penalty included a joint fine of 37.3 million euros with Goldman Sachs, which had acquired the Italian company via one of its private equity funds in 2005 but has since sold its holding.

(Bloomberg) -- Some of the biggest and best-performing emerging-market bond investors are back buying Turkish debt.Foreign ownership of the securities has risen in eight out of the 10 weeks since Naci Agbal took the helm as governor of the central bank in November, with weekly flows on Dec. 18 hitting the strongest level since 2017. The trend underscores how firms including Pacific Investment Management Co., Amundi and UBS Asset Management are betting on a lucrative year ahead for Turkish bonds as recent interest-rate increases put the shackles on inflation and credit growth.The turnaround comes after a period of continuous unloading of the debt. Foreign ownership of bonds tumbled to an all-time low of 3.3% in November, compared with about 20% in September 2018, according to Deutsche Bank AG. It also marks a change from 2020, when the lira weakened for an eighth straight year and local bonds lost 13% as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan ruffled investors by calling for looser monetary policy even as inflation was accelerating.Investors are betting that Erdogan, though still in favor of lower rates, will nevertheless let his new economic management team steer policy without interference. Governor Agbal has pledged to follow a more orthodox monetary approach, and hiked the policy rate twice last year to stem the lira’s slide.“We think now it is a good time to invest in Turkey,” said Pramol Dhawan, Pimco’s Newport Beach-based head of emerging markets, whose fund beat 96% of peers over the past five years. “The policies we have seen were in the right direction, and as long as Turkey follows through these policies, it can be a beneficiary of the favorable external environment for emerging markets.”In a vote of confidence for the new economic team, foreign investors have added $3.1 billion worth of Turkish lira bonds to their holdings since November, according to central bank data. The purchases raised the share of foreign holdings of Turkish domestic debt to 4.4%. That’s still low in global terms. Non-residents own 24% of Russian bonds, 30% of South Africa’s and 48% of Mexico’s.Amundi and UBS have also raised Turkey to “overweight” in their emerging-market debt allocations. Vanguard Asset Management, whose emerging-market debt fund beat 99% of its peers, closed all its short-lira positions after the second rate hike late last year, said Nick Eisinger, the London-based co-head of emerging-markets active fixed income.“Turkey has started to do the right things recently,” said Hakan Aksoy, Amundi’s London-based senior fund manager for emerging-market sovereign bonds. “It has a beaten-up currency and a very high carry. At a time when yields are negative globally in many nations, the central bank is hiking interest rates, promises reforms and this makes us excited about the Turkish market.”Turkey this month attracted record demand for its first Eurobond sale of the year, raising $3.5 billion via a two-part offering of dollar-denominated securities. Demand for the securities was more than $15 billion, an all-time high for a Turkish issuance in international capital markets, the country’s Treasury said in a statement on Jan. 20.Even so, some emerging-market investors want to see more evidence of a turnaround.‘More Consistency’“We are not constructive yet,” said Gustavo Medeiros, the London-based deputy head of research at Ashmore Group Plc. “So much damage has been done in terms of central-bank credibility, foreign-investor confidence and valuation of the currency in recent years. We need more consistency in monetary and fiscal policy to regain confidence in the market.”The biggest unknown for bondholders is how long Erdogan, who fired two central bank governors in the past two years, will let policy makers keep interest rates so high. He repeated his opposition to high interest rates on two separate occasions this month. That’s a risk nobody can predict, and investors should rather look to the fundamentals, said Pimco’s Dhawan.“If you pursue a more moderate growth, which is in line with the economic realities of Turkey, then foreign investors will come in,” he said. “It is a huge and an under-invested economy and people want to be able to take that risk.”(Updates with flows data in second paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Sri Lanka stocks have returned a world-beating 30% so far in 2021 as domestic investors get more active.Local traders have bought a gross 155 billion rupees ($802 million) worth of equities this month through Tuesday -- already 45% of the total domestic purchases last year, according to data from the Colombo Stock Exchange. That’s as overseas investors continue to exit the market, dumping a net $25 million of shares in January on top of the $273 million sold in 2020, data compiled by Bloomberg showed.“As the pandemic rebound got underway, abundance of global liquidity, substantial rate cuts and domestic retail participation have helped fuel the rally,” Joshua Crabb, a Hong Kong-based money manager at Robeco, said in an interview. “Keep in mind the currency has also weakened, which makes exports more competitive, encourages tourism and introduces inflation, which helps nominal assets like equities.”The March selloff saw the CSE All Share Index plunge 32% as a dearth in tourism, increased political uncertainty and concerns about debt sustainability weighed on risk appetite. Since then, the central bank cut its key rate by 200 basis points and provided liquidity, helping the island nation beat a recession. The country has even reopened its airports for international tourism. Equities have now more than doubled to records from their 2020 lows, and trading volume on the Colombo Stock Exchange hit a record $77 million this week. The equity benchmark rose as much as 2.3% Wednesday.Progress in accessing Covid-19 vaccines has also provided a tailwind. Sri Lanka approved the Oxford University-AstraZeneca PLC vaccine for emergency use last week after a surge in cases since October. Some 500,000 doses are scheduled to arrive from India on Jan. 28, the government said.It’s encouraging to see Sri Lanka taking action on the vaccine front but developments still need to be monitored, Robeco’s Crabb said. After the rapid rally, he says stocks may be due for a pause.“In the near term, I would expect the market to consolidate its gains,” he said. “At current valuations, we really need to see an improvement in the economy and in company earnings to see another leg up.”(Updates data in second and fourth paragraphs.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Europe’s economy is starting to follow the familiar script of lagging its international peers when recovering from a crisis.That was the upshot of the International Monetary Fund’s forecasts on Tuesday, which downgraded the growth outlook for 2021 across Europe and underscored a generally poorer performance compared with China and the U.S.Such diverging fortunes reflect the stringency of lockdowns across the euro zone to contain the coronavirus, as well as a late and stumbling vaccination campaign -- headwinds that threaten to deepen what already looks likely to be a double-dip recession. Political unease over the future leadership of Germany and a crisis in Italy are compounding the gloom.By contrast, China is fulfilling a V-shaped recovery, and the U.S. is strutting more confidently with a new president overseeing an extra stimulus injection and a more aggressive vaccine effort.“We’ve started the year on a softer footing, particularly in Europe, because much of Europe seems to have gone back into recession,” Janet Henry, chief global economist at HSBC Holdings Plc in London, told Bloomberg Television. “China is already back above pre-pandemic levels and, on our projections, the U.S. will be by the end of 2021. For the euro zone, it’ll be the end of 2022.”That divergence was emphasized in the IMF’s forecasts, which showed euro-area gross domestic product rising only 4.2% this year, after falling 7.2% in 2020. The U.S. economy is seen expanding 5.1%, more than recouping last year’s 3.4% contraction.The most immediate cause of Europe’s relative weakness is the need for stricter and longer lockdowns to combat a resurgent coronavirus outbreak, and to contain nastier strains of the disease.As European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde put it last week, a contraction in the fourth quarter will now “travel” into the first three months of the year.“The short-term risk is tilted to the downside,” she added somberly. “Uncertainty is in the air.”What Bloomberg Economics Says...“Under pessimistic assumptions about how long restrictions will last, we now estimate that the euro-area economy will experience a deep contraction in 1Q. That will mark the second technical recession in the region as a result of the pandemic.”--Jamie Rush and David Powell. For full note, click hereSluggish immunization programs also threaten to widen the disparity between Europe and the rest. The European Union’s best performers in that regard, tiny Malta and Denmark, have administered only around 4 shots per 100 people. The U.S. has managed 7 and the U.K. is above 10. The EU is now in a standoff with AstraZeneca Plc over delayed vaccine deliveries.With such shortcomings likely to cement lockdowns even further, the contrast in economic destinies is looking stark, with banks including Barclays Plc pointing to an “Atlantic divide.”“The U.S. outlook is improving, Europe’s is deteriorating” BofA Global Research’s economics team wrote in a report. “Don’t think of both economies’ recovery prospects as equal.”Such a trajectory evokes the frequent impression that Europe has become a natural economic laggard to the rest. That sense has persisted for much of the current century, not least after the region’s sovereign-debt crisis impaired its recovery from the global financial crash a decade ago, while the U.S. and China powered ahead, at least in relative terms.Newfound political disarray is only serving to highlight Europe’s listlessness. Post-Brexit trade curbs with the U.K. are already an irksome reminder of the recent trauma of divorce disfiguring the region.Meanwhile, the succession to Germany’s Angela Merkel is still unresolved, keeping open the question of how the bloc will galvanize itself into fighting crises in the era after she leaves. Even after a candidate to replace her as chancellor is settled, an election in September -- no doubt followed by coalition talks -- will prolong the drift.The sudden resignation of Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, against a backdrop of burgeoning debt obligations, also shows how turmoil is never far from erupting somewhere in the region. The country has been the focus of the EU’s efforts to forge a joint recovery fund to shore up the integrity of its common currency.Clinging to HopeFor all their potential despair, European policy makers can still cling to hopes that their economies remain sound beneath the surface.Government support programs in the region have tended to be highly targeted toward keeping companies and jobs afloat even when output is shut down, possibly avoiding unnecessary destruction to growth potential.“Economies are being held in an imperfect state of suspended animation, and by and large it keeps underlying economies healthy,” said Kallum Pickering, an economist at Berenberg. “My hunch actually is that there’s a bit less scarring than most people think.”In any case, Europe’s finance chiefs are now resigning themselves to being patient for when vaccination setbacks can be cleared, and the pandemic tamed, so that their economies can finally be unleashed -- even if that happens far later than global rivals.“We have to divide the year 2021 in two parts,” French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said in a Bloomberg Television interview. “We have everything that is required to have a very strong, very quick rebound as soon as the pandemic is over.”Dutch central bank Governor Klaas Knot shares that view -- but also cautions that there will be a long road ahead to repair the damage.“There is optimism, but then of course we will be stuck with the legacy of the corona pandemic,” he told Bloomberg Television. “Output will be below potential for some time to come.”(Updates with Knot in final paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
The number of people globally on the brink of starvation has doubled from 135m to 270m as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The frayed relationship between Europe and the United States is on an expected path to repair as President Joe Biden paves the way for renewed cooperation on climate change, security, defence and more – however the issue of trade may prove tricky. With the transatlantic partnership dropping to unprecedented lows during four years of Donald Trump, moves are afoot in both Brussels and Washington to reshape and renew areas of common policy.This means plenty of teamwork – or multilateralism – and adhering to international rules and institutions.“Europe is definitely not waiting for the United States to make the first move,” says Celia Belin, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institute, a think tank based in Washington DC. It’s for this reason that Brussels laid out its agenda for transatlantic cooperation – even before Trump left office.“Europeans know that if they want to push international agreements or international initiatives, it has to come to come from them,” Belin adds. Indeed, Europe is looking forward to turning the page on the unabated US nationalism and hostile foreign policy that saw Trump abandon the Paris climate agreement, the Iran nuclear deal and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as slap tariffs on German steel imports and French wine.Restoring international orderDescribed as the most “pro-Atlanticist” president since George HW Bush, Joe Biden is hastily winding back the clock on Trump’s America-first approach by returning to the table with allies and rejoining international treaties and organisations, including the Paris accord and the WHO. So far, though, he’s made no promises on ending tariffs on EU products. Trade will prove a thornier subject, warns Belin, with Biden’s administration remaining careful to protect America’s middle class.“It would be a mistake for Biden to simply undo the Trump administration like Trump did with the Obama administration,” she explains. “Biden recognises the Trump administration had a point in tackling unfair trade practices.” Existing tariffs on EU goods also offer Biden some leverage in future trade talks.Familiar facesOne resounding question is whether Trump’s shake-up of US foreign policy will have a lasting impact, or whether the past four years are more of an anomaly that can be corrected. The answer may be both. Many of Biden’s top advisers are familiar faces – experts in transatlantic affairs who served in the Obama administration. These include his picks for senior jobs in the State Department and National Security Council, whose remit is being expanded to focus more on global health, human rights and democracy.Analysts say that, going forward, policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic consider a solid EU-US partnership to be crucial in re-establishing order on the world stage and drowning out the voices of the populist leaders driving isolationist national agendas. Biden administration draws mixed reactions from Washington's enemies 'We wanted to be a part of this change' say Biden supporters outside US CapitolIncluded in that strategy is Biden’s push to create a D10 global summit of democracies committed to combating authoritarian states. Beyond that, bridging the transatlantic rift means revamping the NATO defence alliance and revisiting outdated rules governing the World Trade Organisation. It will also involve forming a common strategy toward China and Russia, and closer collaboration on dealing with the global Covid-19 pandemic.“The Europeans are less naive than before, and they're also more ready to defend their own interests,” says Belin, adding that much has changed in the four years of Donald Trump.“The EU now perceives itself as a strategic actor, a geopolitical actor and a very strong geo-economic actor in which the US can find a partner.”

Dublin, Jan. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Societal Surveillance Market by Technology, Solution, Applications, and Services 2021 - 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. This research evaluates the companies, strategies, technologies and solutions involved in this emerging surveillance society market. It provides analysis and forecasting for key technologies and solutions including digital identity, tracking, mobile payments, blockchain technology, social credit systems, social distancing solutions, digital twins, augmented and virtual reality. Based on several key drivers, there is a major cultural shift underway towards a surveillance society, which entails primarily observation, tracking, and analysis of human behaviors. Rapidly becoming a social norm in some parts of the world, surveillance gained substantial societal support due to the need to surveil certain individuals that may be foreign state-actor supported terrorists, or in some cases, domestic enemies of the state.However, other factors, such as state control over civilian behavior have taken the fore with the rise of social credit monitoring and the advent of COVID-19, which have dramatically reinforced the notion that surveilling citizens provides a net benefit to society. Recent concerns and threats stemming from the pandemic have added a new dimension of safety and security to protect human lives. The new expectation will have a longer-term impact of routine behavior and processes. In addition to physical threats associated with pandemics, bad actors also seize the opportunity to engage in various threats against cyber infrastructure.By way of example, a recent initiative known as the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), was formed by leading technology companies such as Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, and others for purposes of tracking COVID-19 vaccinations. More specifically, the VCI's stated purpose is to empower individuals with digital access to their vaccination records based on open, interoperable standards so they can achieve two things: (1) protect and improve their health, and (2) demonstrate their health status to safely return to travel, work, school and life while protecting their data privacy.When viewed as a whole as positive, the notion is that societal surveillance provides greater benefits than losses in terms of overall personal privacy. These benefits may include the ability to mitigate the impact of pandemics. On the other hand, the downside of civil surveillance is considered trading safety for liberty. Especially in the United States, the freedom to act anonymously is considered by many to be a core right of democracy in terms of civil liberties identified in the Bill of Rights.The post-pandemic era provides ample justification for persistent citizen identification and continuous tracking and tracing of location and social interactions. All of the key technologies used are evaluated throughout this research, which includes radio communications with devices, optical analysis via video and still pictures, and even via advanced biometrics such as unique biological signatures and presence as may be detected by ubiquitous sensors with reads transmitted via IoT and evaluated via AI-enabled analytics.Many of the technologies used for machine-related monitoring and analysis, such as computer vision for autonomous vehicles, shall be augmented for use in the social distancing solutions market in terms of identification, tracking, and tracing human behaviors. For example, real-world physical access is anticipated to be impacted in a big way due to the pandemic. Accordingly, the publisher sees a keen need for physical access controls, transforming how citizens travel, use public places, and interact with other people. These social distancing market technologies will provide the basis for solutions that enable tracking/identifying people for access to airports, parks, sporting venues, and other public places.The ability to identify, track, and correlate digital and physical identity is of paramount importance to the societal surveillance market. By way of example, digital currencies such as Bitcoin provide for a certain level of anonymity in terms of financial transactions. However, the underlying technology in support of crypto-currencies, blockchain technology, is being adopted by China as it looks to unveil a digital-only version of its currency, which would provide unprecedented governmental oversight and control over transactions. This fits with their drive towards a social credit society in which every citizens' actions are observed and considered.There is an emerging market for surveilling society, which includes observation, tracking, and data analytics to gather and analyze data. This market also involves the use of additional technologies such as the combination of digital twin technology, augmented and virtual reality to provide an improved means of observing and interacting with citizens. Additionally, governments may leverage the ability to observe citizen behaviors by tracking digital payments in an increasingly cashless global society.This market also includes the ability to score citizens as part of an overall social credit system that goes beyond "acceptable" and "unacceptable" individual behaviors to focus on government mandates such as compliance with public safety rulings associated with virus outbreaks. Select Research Findings: The ability to identify, track, and correlate digital and physical identity is of paramount importance to the societal surveillance marketThe combination of AI and big data analytics will be leveraged to identify correlations, trends, and predictive capabilities for governmentBlockchain will be adopted by certain sovereign nations as a means to provide a view into citizen behaviors and even control transactionsThe signal highest ROI solution for 5G by far is anytime, anywhere video and the biggest application is placement within smart cities for surveillanceThe role of human-machine trust and the ability for governments to gain visibility, control and mitigation is evolving with AI, IoT, and cybersecurity threatsWhat started in China as a social credit system will evolve and expand to other nations as governments see the need to observe, track, and intervene with respect to citizenry Target Audience: Network operatorsAI and big data companiesVideo and surveillance companiesDigital ID management companiesGovernmental agencies and NGOs Key Topics Covered: Asset Tracking Market by Technology, Infrastructure, Connection Type, Mobility, Location Determination, Solution Type, and Industry Verticals1.
