Asset managers must take immediate steps to write and implement plans to stop using the Libor interest rate benchmark in financial contracts, Britain's Financial Conduct Authority said on Thursday. The London Interbank Offered Rate or Libor, which banks were fined billions of dollars for trying to rig, is set to cease by the end of 2021, the watchdog said in a "Dear CEO" letter to asset management bosses. "If your firm has Libor exposures or dependencies, your transition activities should now be underway," the FCA said.

British wealth manager St. James's Place said funds under management hit a record high in the third quarter, as its affluent clients put more cash into their pensions. Net inflows were 2.1 billion pounds, of which 1.5 billion pounds was into pensions. From its base in the market town of Cirencester, St James's Place has grown rapidly in recent years, profiting from growing demand among retail clients for face-to-face financial advice.
With his flagship 3.7 billion pound ($4.5 billion) fund frozen, money manager Neil Woodford has been travelling around Britain trying to convince independent financial advisers (IFAs) his firm remains a good long-term bet. Woodford, one of the UK's best-known fund managers, has given no media interviews or made any public appearances since his Equity Income Fund was suspended on June 3 after it ran out of cash to pay back investors seeking to leave. Woodford has been "fighting his corner" said one source who attended the meetings, explaining his view of the markets and receiving a positive response, though two others said they did not find his arguments convincing.
London's FTSE 100 slipped on Wednesday from this week's 11-month high, as wealth manager St. James's Place, homebuilder Taylor Wimpey and mortgage lender Lloyds fell on the back of results, overshadowing an upbeat forecast from clothing retailer Next. The main index lost 0.8%, its biggest one-day drop in two months, as exporter stocks also weighed after the pound recovered from a 28-month low.
British wealth manager St. James's Place said on Wednesday that weaker client sentiment weighed on inflows of new money in the first half of the year while costs rose, leading it to miss forecasts for operating profit.
British wealth manager Openwork's Omnis Investments has picked Jupiter Asset Management to run a 317 million pound ($402.46 million) fund formerly run by Woodford Investment Management, it said on Friday. Openwork and St James's Place pulled separate mandates from Woodford totalling nearly four billion pounds shortly after the British fund manager suspended its 3.7 billion pound Equity Income fund on June 3. The Woodford suspension has provoked strong reactions from British politicians and led to a probe by regulators over the fund's exposure to unlisted and illiquid stocks.
