London to lose €800bn to Frankfurt as banks prepare for Brexit

Lobby group says up to 37 finance firms are relocating to Germany, taking assets with them

City firms are in the process of moving operations to Frankfurt before Britain exits the EU.

London will lose up to to €800bn (£700bn) in assets to rival financial hub Frankfurt by March 2019 as banks start to transfer business to the German city before Brexit day.

The lobby group Frankfurt Main Finance released the figure after it was confirmed that 30 banks and financial firms had chosen the city as the site of their new EU headquarters.

But with several banks – including JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley – planning to spread their operations across a number of cities including Dublin and Paris, the lobby group believes the number of firms committed to expanding or setting up offices in Frankfurt will be closer to 37.

Ultimately it will mean draining billions of pounds worth of assets from London to companies’ German operations within months. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

170 Beamte durchsuchten laut Staatsanwaltschaft mehrere Objekte der Bank. Es geht um Geldwäscheverdacht

Die Staatsanwaltschaft Frankfurt und das Bundeskriminalamt haben am Donnerstag Geschäftsräume des größten heimischen Geldhauses durchsucht. Grund seien Ermittlungen wegen des Verdachts der Geldwäsche, teilte die Staatsanwaltschaft Frankfurt mit. Etwa 170 Beamte der Staatsanwaltschaft, des Bundeskriminalamts, der Steuerfahndung und der Bundespolizei durchsuchten seit dem Morgen sechs Objekte in Frankfurt, Eschborn und Groß-Umstadt. Die Ermittlungen richten sich den Angaben zufolge gegen zwei Mitarbeiter im Alter von 46 und 50 Jahren sowie andere bislang nicht identifizierte Verantwortliche des Unternehmens. Beim Hauptquartier des Instituts in der Frankfurter Taunusanlage waren am Vormittag mindestens zehn Mannschaftswagen der Bundespolizei zu sehen, zudem mehrere Zivilfahrzeuge mit Blaulicht. Die Deutsche Bank erklärte, sie arbeite vollumfänglich mit den Behörden zusammen. Die für die Aufsicht über die Deutsche Bank zuständige Europäische Zentralbank (EZB) wollte die Razzia nicht kommentieren. Auch die deutsche Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (Bafin) wollte keinen Kommentar abgeben. Die Aktien des immer wieder von Rechtsverstößen gebeutelten Instituts gingen auf Talfahrt: Sie verloren binnen weniger Minuten fast fünf Prozent an Wert. „Das bedeutet einen immensen Vertrauensverlust und kann sehr teuer werden für die Bank“, sagte ein Aktienhändler.

Isle of Madness: A Series of Miscalculations Has Brought Britain to the Brink

Posted by hkarner - 30. November 2018

If you want to understand the whole issue of Brexit, then red this story! (hfk)

Brexit was to allow the United Kingdom to reclaim its former glory. Instead, the country’s leaders have bumbled their way into catastrophe. Built on a false premise from the start, the UK’s move away from the EU has been dominated by mistakes and miscalculations.

On Saturday of last week, the sun was rising over London when a blue bus set off along the shore of the Thames. Lucy Swale and Matilda Allan were on board, one with red hair, the other brunette. They managed to get themselves out of bed at 5:45 a.m. and jog through half the city from Islington to catch the double-decker. The bus, they believed, would carry them into the future.

„Dear MPs,“ its exterior read, „77 percent of us don’t want Brexit — signed, Young people.“ Lucy and Matilda will turn 18 in December. For their birthday, they want a vote. It would be their first.

And perhaps also the most important of their lives.

„We have to live with this the longest time,“ says Matilda. „But nobody asked us.“ She was 15 years old when a narrow majority of her compatriots voted to try their luck outside of the European Union. Several members of Matilda’s family voted for Brexit. But „not everybody understood what they were voting for,“ she says.

She claims that it is only now, two-and-a-half years later, that many people realize the degree to which they were misled, lied to and manipulated. She argues that not only her, but also the almost one-and-a-half million young people who have reached adulthood since the referendum, have earned the right to a new vote. And Matilda is certain what the result would be. „I am angry.“

That sentence can currently be heard, in different variations, across the United Kingdom. If there’s anything uniting the generally indulgent Brits right now, it’s anger. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
