LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 21 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is on the verge of making concessions around a key welfare reform that has angered opposition parties as well as members of her own Conservatives, the Sunday Telegraph reported. The government has signalled that it is looking at ways to reduce the waiting time for payments from its new Universal Credit benefits system from six weeks, the newspaper said on Saturday (Shenzhen: 002291.SZ - news) , without citing sources. Last week some lawmakers from May's own party vented their dismay over the government's handling of Universal Credit, which is designed to simplify payments to claimants by consolidating six different types of state benefits into one.

WASHINGTON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump is considering nominating Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell and Stanford University economist John Taylor for the central bank's top two jobs, in an apparent bid to reassure markets and appease conservatives hungry for change. Under that scenario, either Powell or Taylor would take the reins from Fed Chair Janet Yellen when her term expires in early February, and the other would fill the vice chair position left vacant when Stanley Fischer retired this month. Making Powell, a soft-spoken centrist who has supported Yellen's gradual approach to raising interest rates, the next Fed chief would provide the continuity in monetary policy that investors crave.

ZURICH, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - Activist investor RBR Capital Advisors wants to expand its stake in Credit Suisse to 1 billion Swiss francs ($1 billion), as the hedge fund pushes to spin off the Swiss lender's investment bank and asset management business. RBR has so far invested almost half its 250 million francs in assets to buy roughly 0.2 percent of Credit Suisse, which it believes would be worth twice as much if the bank focused solely on wealth management and its Swiss business.
DUBLIN, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - A majority of Ryanair pilots at its largest base have rejected management's offer of improved pay and conditions, the airline said on Friday, dealing a blow to its efforts to address a recent pilot shortage. Pilots at London's Stansted Airport rejected the Ryanair offer by a margin of 60 percent to 40 percent at Friday evening's vote, the Irish airline said. "Ryanair will continue to engage with the London Stansted ERC (Employee Relations Council) to understand how it can address their remaining concerns, especially as it will be recruiting new pilots in Stansted from November at these higher pay rates," it said in a statement.
WASHINGTON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - The U.S. budget deficit widened to $666 billion for the fiscal year 2017 as record spending more than offset record receipts, the Treasury Department said on Friday. The previous fiscal year deficit was $586 billion, with a deficit-to-GDP ratio of 3.2 percent. The latest fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, straddled the presidencies of Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Donald Trump, a Republican.

Traders seek the yen and Swiss franc in times of uncertainty and fear and sell the currencies when they favor riskier assets. "This is clearly a picture of somewhat of a risk-on rotation today, and it’s ignited some of the animal spirits as we take another step closer to the potential for tax reform coming to fruition," said Bill Northey, chief investment officer at U.S. Bank Wealth Management in Helena, Montana.
FRANKFURT, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - PSA Group Chief Executive Carlos Tavares has signalled possible cost cuts at its Opel unit, noting in a newspaper interview that production costs were at least 50 percent higher than at the company's French factories. "My impression is that many problems are due to the fact that things are out of proportion at Opel, that they consume too much energy, that processes are not efficient enough," Tavares said in an interview published on Friday in Die Welt. The car industry is still a place where there is a lot of waste," Tavares said.

Launched just last week, Hong Kong's Gobee.bike has already spread its bikes all over Paris and Chinese giants Ofo and Mobike, as well as Singapore startup oBike, see entering the French capital as a key step in their plans to conquer Europe's city centres.
WASHINGTON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - U.S. home resales unexpectedly increased in September as the effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma began to dissipate, but a persistent dearth of properties for sale continued to weigh on overall activity. The National Association of Realtors said on Friday existing home sales rose 0.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.39 million units last month. Harvey, which hit Texas in the last week of August, and Irma, which battered Florida in early September, had already affected sales for August.
LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 20 (Reuters) - Britain's Court of Appeal has refused Libya's $67 billion sovereign wealth fund the right to appeal against the 2016 judgment handed down by Britain's High Court in the fund's $1.2 billion case against Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS-PB - news) . The Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) lost the 2016 case, which related to nine equity derivatives investments carried out in 2008 that turned out to be worthless. In the trial, the fund had argued that it was too unsophisticated to understand what it was buying, and that Goldman had abused its position as a trusted adviser.
