Financial Times' journalists could strike over the gender pay gap at the newspaper amid fury that female journalists are being paid 13% less than male colleagues. Sky News has learnt the FT's union has called a meeting on Wednesday after concluding senior managers were not taking the lack of pay parity and pay transparency at the newspaper "seriously enough". "The gender pay gap in FT Editorial is nearly 13% - the biggest shortfall in a decade - and the company's 'ambition' to reach equality by 2022 is worse than the BBC's present target of 2020," said Steve Bird, father of the FT's National Union of Journalists chapel, in an email to 600 staff.
Britain's markets watchdog has proposed rolling out banker accountability rules to thousands of staff in other parts of the financial sector a decade after taxpayer bailouts and market rigging scandals saw only a few individuals punished. The Senior Managers Regime or SMR was introduced for top bankers in March 2016 to try to improve behaviour after banks were hit with hefty fines for trying to rig the Libor interest rate benchmark and currencies. No other country has introduced such detailed and wide-ranging accountability rules.

Global banks have begun signalling how they will put plans into action to cope with a "hard" exit by Britain from the European Union. Bank executives will present plans to their boards in the coming months outlining where they want to relocate operations to and how much it will cost, banking industry sources said. The movement of jobs from London is likely to be slow at first, with banks more focused on getting regulatory approval and installing the necessary infrastructure for new or bolstered EU outposts so they can continue to sell products and service EU customers.
