    UK watchdog to add car finance to pandemic loan relief measures

    The Financial Conduct Authority said on Thursday it would add car financing to the temporary relief measures aimed at supporting households facing sudden financial hardship as result of the coronavirus. As expected, the FCA also confirmed proposals set out last week requiring banks to offer a three-month payment freezes on loans and credit card debt. "We know there is still more work to be done, and we will be announcing further measures to support consumers in other parts of the credit market in the future, including in the motor finance sector next week," FCA Interim Chief Executive Christopher Woolard said in a statement.

    Virus lockdown threatens $60 billion in UK dividends - report

    UK-listed companies could cancel about $60 billion in dividend payments this year following Britain's lockdown and calls from regulators to preserve cash during the coronavirus crisis, according to a report by analytics company Link Group. As Britain battles to curb the spread of virus, the report published on Thursday showed that a record 41% of dividend payouts by the country's listed companies were under threat if the situation worsens. Link Group, which provides shareholder management services as well as analytics, said it based its UK Dividend Monitor findings on publicly available data from companies listed on Britain's main stock market, and consensus analyst forecasts.

    Barclays, Sabadell bosses give up some pay to aid coronavirus relief efforts

    Britain's Barclays and Spain's Banco Sabadell on Tuesday said senior executives would give up some of their pay, joining a list of European banks where bosses have made such a gesture as part of efforts to combat the new coronavirus. Barclays said Chief Executive Jes Staley, Chairman Nigel Higgins and Chief Financial Officer Tushar Morzaria would all donate a third of their fixed pay for the next six months to a new 100 million pound community aid fund launched by the bank. Sabadell and its British subsidiary TSB said that senior management of both banks would give up their bonus awards for 2020, so that the banks can better reward junior staff who are helping customers deal with the virus.

    Barclays Executives Donate Third of Fixed Pay to Virus Charities

    (Bloomberg) -- Barclays Plc’s bosses are giving away a third of their fixed pay for the next six months to help people affected by the coronavirus pandemic.The donations from Chairman Nigel Higgins, Chief Executive Officer Jes Staley, and finance director Tushar Morzaria come as the British lender sets up a package of 100 million pounds ($123 million) for charities aiding those affected by the virus, Barclays said in a statement Tuesday.The decision to forgo some pay follows similar moves by other banks, which are under pressure to keep lending while conserving capital during the crisis. Nationwide Building Society Chief Executive Officer Joe Garner said he would cut his salary by a fifth and give up his bonus. Top managers at TSB earlier Tuesday waived their bonuses for 2020, following the lead of executives at their Spanish parent Banco de Sabadell SA. Standard Chartered Plc has committed $1 billion to companies involved in the fight against the pandemic.Last week, the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority called on the U.K.’s leading lenders, including Barclays, HSBC Holdings Plc and Lloyds Banking Group Plc, to cease paying cash bonuses to their top staff and scrap dividends. Banks agreed to the latter but haven’t commented on bonus plans.Staley received a total of 5.9 million pounds last year, including 2.35 million pounds in fixed pay.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Pandemic prompts UK watchdog to devise a rip-off detector

    Britain's markets watchdog says the coronavirus pandemic has shown a need to reinforce consumer protection and it will draw up new longer-term measures to help detect if vulnerable customers are being ripped off. The epidemic has already prompted the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to propose several measures such as easing the burden of credit card payments for cash-strapped consumers now in their third week of lockdown and with no clarity on which businesses will survive. "These risks of harm could be exacerbated by the global economic uncertainties caused by coronavirus," the FCA said in its business plan for 2020/2021.

    Dubai Weighs Bond and Emirates Loans as Virus Hits Economy

    (Bloomberg) -- Dubai is in talks with bankers about shoring up its finances and the emirate’s flag carrier is mulling billions of dollars of loans, as the coronavirus pandemic hammers the economy.The government is discussing various options, which could include the nation’s first Eurobond since 2016 and loans, according to people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified. Talks are at an early stage and no decision has been made, they said.If Dubai does tap the bond market, it would follow other governments from the region that have sold dollar debt or started the process since the spread of the virus rocked global markets. Qatar entered the market on Tuesday with a five- 10- and 30-year deal that will probably price later in the day. Israel issued $5 billion, including the Middle East’s first sovereign century bonds, last week.A representative for Dubai’s Department of Finance declined to comment.Like many other cities around the world, Dubai is in full lockdown as it seeks to contain the virus. The Middle East’s main business and travel hub is especially vulnerable given its open economy and reliance on tourism and trade.The Expo 2020 exhibition scheduled for October is set to be delayed by a year. The event was seen as key to boosting an economy that was already growing slowly.“Dubai needs to raise funds to mitigate financing pressures in relation to various state-owned entities,” said Ksenia Mishankina, a senior credit analyst at Union Bancaire Privee in London. A fall in interest rates in the developed world this year “should create conditions of a hunt for yield among investors,” she said.Emirates Airline is reaching out to local and international banks about funding in addition to state aid it received last month, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The world’s largest long-haul airline suspended almost all its passenger operations around the same time.The yield on Dubai’s $500 million bond maturing in 2043 rose 1 basis point to 5.87% on Monday, extending its climb since since early March to about 170 basis points. Dubai’s conventional dollar debt has lost 20% over the past month, compared with the average in emerging markets of 14%, according to Bloomberg Barclays indexes. Its sukuk notes are down 4.5%.Although Dubai isn’t rated by one of the three major firms, bond pricing suggests investors see it as a riskier borrower than Israel or Qatar, both of which are assessed as AA- by S&P Global Ratings.The United Arab Emirates, of which Dubai is a part, unveiled a 50-billion dirham ($13.6 billion) aid package for banks last month. Lenders are also allowed to free up capital buffers, which will make another 50 billion dirhams in liquidity available.Business conditions in the U.A.E. worsened at a record pace in March as the virus shut down much of the economy. The country has reported 2,076 cases of infection, with 11 deaths.(Updates with Qatar’s bond in third paragraph, latest pricing in fourth-last paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
