Sovereign-bond Backed Securities (SBBS) from theory to practice
Recording of the online seminar held on 22 July 2018. Speakers: - Peter Grasmann (Head of Unit, Economic Analysis of Financial Markets and Financial Stability – DG FISMA, European Commission) - Davide Lombardo (Senior Economist, EU/Euro Area Financial Sector Unit – DG FISMA, European Commission This online seminar focuses on the recent Commission proposal for a bespoke regulatory framework for sovereign-bond backed securities (SBBS). A novel concept, SBBS have the potential to contribute to a more resilient Banking Union and a more efficient Capital Markets Union by helping banks and other financial institutions better diversify their sovereign bond portfolios and by expanding the toolkit for private sector risk-sharing, especially across borders. But they face several regulatory hindrances, which result—in a way—from their own being so novel. The recent Commission proposal aims to eliminate such hindrances, thus giving SBBS a chance. Commission officials will present the broad contours of the draft legislation, and will discuss the trade-offs faced when drafting it and the rationale underpinning the various choices made. The presentations will be followed by an interactive Questions and Answers session. More information: http://fbf.eui.eu/event/online-seminar-sbbs-from-theory-to-practice/?instance_id=294

A Trans-Atlantic Congress?
There is increasing coordination between the European Parliament and the U.S. Congress. Furthermore, the U.S. executive branch and the European Union’s executive body, the European Commission, are collaborating more and more. A meeting just last week in Washington, organized by the Center for Transatlantic Relations, featured a live video feed of a European hearing. That hearing involved Members of the European Parliament, or MEPs, grilling a candidate who hopes to serve as Trade Commissioner on the European Commission. Arriving at the Paul Nitze (“Neetsie”) School of Advanced International Studies, ’s Mark Anderson watched the hearing but soon learned that this EU-US coordination is more sophisticated than first assumed. And a major goal is the advancement of a huge trade pact called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or T-TIP (“Tee-TIP”) This coordination between the EU and U.S. governments is not altogether new. European Parliament President Martin Schultz met with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi during a 2012 Washington visit. And that same year, MEP Christian Ehler of Germany addressed the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee. Yet, that’s the main House panel which decides American trade policies with foreign nations. Notably, a Ways and Means Committee staffer was a panelist at last week’s Washington meeting. ’s Mark Anderson noted: SOT T-TIP could become the world’s first-ever formal trade pact between the U.S. and the European Union. It’s surpassed in scope only by an even larger trade pact called the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The aggressive effort to keep T-TIP moving strongly stems from a body called the European Union Delegation to the United States. Its office is at 2175 K. Street in Washington. That delegation has visited all 50 states and dozens of large U.S. cities to promote T-TIP’s supposed promises of widespread prosperity. However, similar trade deals in effect, such as NAFTA and CAFTA, have largely brought poverty to all but the very richest segments of society. And get this: 2175 K. Street is also the address of the European Parliament Liaison Office with the U.S. Congress, or EPLO. The EPLO released a special report at the Washington meeting which covered. The report, “Common Threads: Strengthening Transatlantic Bonds and Values,” charts the collaboration between the U.S. and EU governments. Anderson stated: SOT Finally, one other body—the European Parliament Delegation for Relations with the U.S.—has 53 MEPs representing the European Union. The Common Threads report says that this delegation: “[Develops] relations between the U.S. Congress and the [European] Parliament on issues calling for Transatlantic legislative and political cooperation.” So, a fair question is whether we’re seeing the development of a “Trans-Atlantic Congress” whose lofty operations will break constitutional bonds and betray the voice of the people.

ECB Says Too-Slow Governments a Threat to Europe Revival
European Central Bank policy makers said governments must accelerate plans to strengthen their economies or risk derailing the region’s recovery. “Talking vaguely about structural reforms, but not doing them, is the worst of all worlds,” Executive Board member Benoit Coeure said today in Riga. “It creates uncertainty over the path of real interest rates, without in tandem raising expectations of future growth.” While Coeure said a program to purchase covered bonds will start within days, pressure is mounting on the ECB to also buy sovereign bonds as the 18-nation euro area struggles to recover from a debt crisis and recession. That’s opening fractures in the Governing Council as officials argue that monetary measures will fail unless governments, who submitted their draft budgets to the European Commission this week, play their part. “The ECB and the euro zone are rapidly emulating Japan,” Andrew Bosomworth, a Munich-based portfolio manager at Pacific Investment Management Co., said in an interview. “I think they’re losing credibility because inflation is too low.” Concern that the outlook is worsening contributed to a slump in bonds in peripheral countries and a global stock-market decline of more than $3 trillion so far this month. The euro-area economy stagnated in the second quarter and inflation, at 0.3 percent last month, isn’t seen returning to a goal of just under 2 percent before 2017. Taxpayer Risk European equities jumped today by the most in more than two months and peripheral-nation debt rose after Coeure’s comments on the covered-bond program. Italy’s 10-year yield fell 7 basis points to 2.51 percent at 2:30 p.m. Frankfurt time. The ECB also plans to buy asset-backed securities before the end of the year. Governing Council member Jens Weidmann, who opposed the asset-purchase plan on the grounds that it could increase the risk to taxpayers, said today the strategy runs counter to years of effort to limit taxpayers’ exposure to losses in the financial system. He also said it won’t solve the key issues. “The biggest bottleneck for growth in the euro area is not monetary policy, nor is it the lack of fiscal stimulus,” he said at the conference in the Latvian capital. “It is the structural barriers that impede competition, innovation and productivity.” The European Commission has just started a two-week process to pick apart national spending plans for 2015, with the French and Italian budgets set to cause the biggest headaches. France’s deficit is forecast to hit its target two years late, and Italy’s pace of reduction of its structural deficit is slower than the commission demanded. Legal Act The ECB has also cut interest rates to record lows and offered long-term loans to funnel credit to companies and households. Coeure reiterated a pledge to do more if needed. The central bank today published the legal act allowing covered-bond purchases to start. ECB President Mario Draghi has said he wants to steer the size of the balance sheet back to early-2012 levels, signaling an addition of as much as 1 trillion euros ($1.3 trillion) in assets. “It is likely that the ECB should first concentrate on the secondary market to be able to buy bonds, as no euro area issuers have announced that they will come to the market next week,” said Joost Beaumont, a covered-bond analyst at ABN Amro Bank NV in Amsterdam. “It will be interesting to see whether today’s decision will attract euro-area issuers to the market.” Temporary Measures ECB Vice President Vitor Constancio said at a conference in Frankfurt today that the purchases will affect other asset markets including bonds, equities and foreign exchange. He also warned that the programs shouldn’t been seen as “market making of last resorts.” Executive Board member Yves Mersch said in Zurich today that while “a central bank with a clear mandate to safeguard price stability needs to act forcefully when push comes to shove,” policy makers must be aware of the side-effects. Non-standard measures “have to be temporary,” he said. Council member Ewald Nowotny told reporters in Vienna today that while the ECB “certainly has further options” to promote economic growth, the region is not in a recession and “it’s not as if the ECB would have to open its emergency pharmacy.” Draghi has urged European governments to step up efforts to put their economies on a more solid footing, complementing his ultra-expansionary monetary policy “It is sometimes argued that monetary policy can weaken the incentives to reform,” Coeure said. “I do not share this view.”

On Aug. 1, 2011, Standard & Poor's lowered its ratings on 46 Spanish repackaged covered bonds--known as "multi-cédulas"--and removed them from CreditWatch negative. The actions reflect our view of deteriorating creditworthiness of the participating financial institutions, and, in some cases, the potential effect of higher concentration in the financial institutions sector. In this CreditMatters TV segment, Karlo Fuchs, analytical manager for Covered Bond Ratings, provides an overview of the multi-cédulas product, and explores what's behind our recent rating actions.

Peacekeeping in Haiti & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (03 April 2019)
Noon briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Secretary General Travels - Algeria, Comoros, Security Council - Honduras UNICEF - Water - UNICRI - Sport SECRETARY-GENERAL TRAVELS The Secretary-General, António Guterres, landed a short while ago in Tripoli, in Libya, where he will show his support for the political process during this critical phase in the country. Speaking to reporters after his encounter in Cairo with Egyptian President Sisi, the Secretary-General said, “Our objective is simple, to avoid any major confrontation and to create conditions to stabilize the situation in Libya.” He added that it is essential to unify the country’s institutions and said that [he] hopes that the conversations that took place between Prime Minister Sarraj and General Haftar in Abu Dhabi will be an important step towards this unity. He hoped that this progress can be consolidated by the National Conference that will take place later this month. You will have seen that we just tweeted out about this arrival saying that he is totally committed to supporting the Libyan-led political process. As for his discussions with the President Sisi earlier today before leaving Cairo, the Secretary-General said their talks covered the three pillars of the UN: peace and security, sustainable development and human rights. ALGERIA The Secretary-General takes note of the resignation of the Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. The Secretary-General salutes the mature and calm nature in which the Algerian people have been expressing their desire for change. He looks forward to a peaceful and democratic transition process that reflects the wishes of the Algerian people. The Secretary-General reiterates the United Nations’ continued commitment to supporting Algeria in its process of democratic transition. COMOROS The Secretary-General takes note of the announcement made today by the Supreme Court of the results of the 24 March 2019 presidential and gubernatorial elections in Comoros. He expresses his deep concern over the reports of violence and fatalities as well as arrests of political opponents and restrictions on media. He underscores the imperative of upholding the rule of law and the respect of fundamental rights. The Secretary-General urges the Comorian authorities and other national stakeholders to refrain from any action likely to heighten the current tensions.  The Secretary-General echoes the call made by the African Union on 29 March, supported by the European Union and by the Indian Ocean Commission, for an inclusive dialogue, under the leadership of the AU. He reiterates the UN’s readiness to support such efforts to promote national cohesion, peace, stability and development in the Union of the Comoros.

Regarding the journey to Asia in 2008: In 2008, European Year of Cross-cultural Dialogue, developing the large mass media effort in organizing the 29th Olympic Games in Beijing, a 10-member GP team carried out the road trip initiative Green Project in Asia: Athens to Beijing, from the silk roads to the energy roads. (www.greenproject2008.com). The team started out in Greece, passed through Turkey, George, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and wound up in China. Utilizing low CO2 emission vehicles, and mass transportation, 13,000 kilometers were covered in a period of five weeks, in a quest for modern routes of commercial energy (electricity and natural gas), not unlike those who followed the historical Silk Road. GP presentations in the capital cities of countries visited were accompanied by digital displays of artistic works of her contributors. Eighteen important installations of renewal energy sources were recorded along with 16 characteristic samples of traditional architecture, 7 of which are included in the list of UNESCOs World Heritage Sites. The trailblazing recordings consisted of 30,000 photographs and 40-hours of documentary videos. The initiative for Green Project in Asia attracted a huge amount of publicity, and was included in the international art festival Lato 2009 and the Athens Photo Festival of 2008 and 2009, as well as the World forum on Energy Regulation IV, 2009, while it is scheduled for presentation in Brussels, at the Anniart, 798 Art Zone in Beijing, at the EXPO in Shanghai at the Museum of Modern Art in Baku, and in the framework of the Festival de lImage Environnementale 2010 in Paris. The documentary is in the post-production phase, while the international publication of a large six-language album is being prepared. In light of the significant artistic and scientific works that were produced, the Green Project in Asia effected a tool of cross-cultural communication, seeking to contribute to the emergence of powerful energy bonds and to addressing common environmental concerns of the peoples along the route. Its worth noting that the European Union considers the creation of the so-called Southern Energy Corridor (a.k.a. Southern Corridor) for the transport of natural gas and electrical energy between Asia and Europe, to be of enormous geopolitical importance. Regarding the 2010 journey to Africa in 2010: Within the sphere of initiatives of the European Commission: The EU, Africa and China: Towards a trilateral dialogue and cooperation, and EU-Africa Energy Partnership, the Green Project (GP) will seek to exploit through mass media the 19th World Football Cup that is being organized in South Africa in 2010, with the realization of the Green Project in Africa: Cape Town Athens from the waterways to the energy routes (www.green-project.org). This initiative, supported by public and private institutions, will materialize in the summer of 2010, International Year of Biodiversity, and will follow the migratory route of the Eleanor hawk (often referred to as the black robin of the Aegean) now threatened with extinction. The GP team will cover the 14,000 kilometers of African waterways along the Okavango, Zambezi and Nile rivers, as well as the lakes of Tanganyika, Malawi and Victoria, located in the countries of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt, Cypress and Greece. It will record about 50 major traditional and modern applications of optimal practical developments of renewal energy sources in local communities. Particular attention will be paid to works and initiatives by UNESCO, UNDP, the European Union, and international non-governmental organizations. There is an open call for participation in Green Project in Africa: Cape Town Athens from the waterways to the energy routes. Please apply to: [email protected]

EU Cuts Growth Outlook as Inflation Seen Below ECB Forecast
The European Commission cut its growth forecasts for the euro area as the bloc’s largest economies struggle to put the ravages of the debt crisis behind them after two recessions in six years. Gross domestic product in the 18-nation region will rise by 0.8 percent this year and 1.1 percent in 2015, down from projections for 1.2 and 1.7 percent in May, the Brussels-based commission said today. It lowered its projections for Germany, Europe’s largest economy, and said inflation in the euro area will be even weaker than the European Central Bank predicts. “The legacy of the global financial and economic crisis lingers on,” said Marco Buti, the head of the commission’s economics department. “Slack in the EU economy remains large and is weighing on inflation, which is also being dragged down by tumbling energy and food prices.” The bleaker outlook highlights the fledgling nature of the euro area’s recovery and the deflation threat that has compelled the ECB to take unprecedented stimulus measures. While unemployment is beginning to decline from a record high, core economies such as Germany and France are facing some of the growth challenges that afflicted the periphery at the start of the debt crisis. Today’s report forecasts inflation at 0.8 percent in 2015, less than half the ECB goal of just under 2 percent. That’s more pessimistic than the central bank’s own projection of 1.1 percent. The commission sees inflation quickening to 1.5 percent in 2016, compared with the ECB outlook for 1.4 percent. ECB Stimulus European stocks declined for a second day and German, French and Italian bonds rose. The yield on the German 10-year bund fell 4 basis points to 0.81 percent at 11:17 a.m. London time. The Italian yield dropped 5 basis points to 2.37 percent. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slipped 0.1 percent. The grim assessment for the euro region comes just days before the ECB Governing Council led by President Mario Draghi gathers in Frankfurt for its monthly policy meeting. The ECB has cut its benchmark rate to a record-low 0.05 percent and began buying covered bonds to boost inflation and rekindle growth. “Country-specific factors are contributing to the weaknesses of economic activity in the EU and the euro area in particular,” Jyrki Katainen, commission vice president for competitiveness, told reporters in Brussels. These include “deep-seated structural problems” and “public and private debt overhang,” he said. The commission predicted GDP growth of 1.7 percent in 2016, lower than the ECB’s 1.9 percent published in September. ‘Fragile’ Recovery Unemployment in the 18-nation region will gradually decrease from 11.6 percent this year, the commission said, forecasting an average rate of 11.3 percent in 2015 and 10.8 percent in 2016. The recovery is “not only subdued but also fragile,” it said. “With confidence indicators declining since mid-year and now back to where they were at the end of 2013, and hard data pointing to very weak activity for the rest of the year, it is becoming harder to see the dent in the recovery as the result of temporary factors only.” In addition to a lower forecast for Germany, the commission cut its projections for France and Italy. Italy’s economy, the third largest in the euro area and in its third recession in six years, will shrink 0.4 percent this year, according to the commission. It predicted growth of 0.6 percent in 2015, half the pace expected in May. The country’s debt pile -- the second largest in the euro zone after Greece -- will hit 133.8 percent of GDP next year before slipping to 132.7 percent in 2016. That’s still higher than the 132.2 percent anticipated for 2014. German Stagnation The commission expects Germany to stagnate in the second half. It sees growth of 1.1 percent in 2015 and 1.8 percent in 2016. The 2015 outlook compares with 2 percent in May. “Growth is set to resume gradually with the support of a robust labor market, favorable financing conditions and improving external demand,” the commission said. As France spars with EU budget monitors over spending controls, European forecasters see the country’s deficit widening to 4.4 percent of GDP in 2014, compared with a forecast 3.9 percent in May and above the EU’s 3 percent limit. In 2016, the deficit will be 4.7 percent. France’s structural deficit -- which strips out the effects of the economic cycle -- will deteriorate from 3 percent in 2014 to 3.4 percent in 2016. Economic growth in Spain is projected to accelerate to 1.7 percent next year and 2.2 percent in 2016 from 1.2 percent this year, underpinned by domestic demand. The commission said Spain’s budget deficit, pegged at 5.6 percent of GDP this year, will narrow to 4.6 percent in 2015 and to 3.9 percent in 2016.

What is COVERED WARRANT? What does COVERED WARRANT mean? COVERED WARRANT meaning & explanation
What is COVERED WARRANT? What does COVERED WARRANT mean? COVERED WARRANT meaning - COVERED WARRANT definition - COVERED WARRANT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. In finance a covered warrant (sometimes called naked warrant) is a type of warrant that has been issued without an accompanying bond or equity. Like a normal warrant, it allows the holder to buy or sell a specific amount of equities, currency, or other financial instruments from the issuer at a specified price at a predetermined date. Unlike normal warrants, they are usually issued by financial institutions instead of share-issuing companies and are listed as fully tradable securities on a number of stock exchanges. They can also have a variety of underlying instruments, not just equities, and may allow the holder to buy or sell the underlying asset. These attributes make it possible to use covered warrants as a tool to speculate on financial markets. A covered warrant gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy ("call" warrant) or to sell ("put" warrant) an underlying asset at a specified price (the "strike" or "exercise" price) by a predetermined date. The price paid for this right is the "premium" and with covered warrants you cannot lose more than this initial premium paid. They are limited liability instruments so there are no further payments or margin calls required to maintain a covered warrant position. Covered warrants offer a flexible alternative to private investors who seek to gain the leverage benefits of derivatives, but who wish to limit their risk. When the issuer sells a warrant to an investor, they typically "cover" (or hedge) their exposure by buying the underlying instrument in the market. Covered warrants have an average life of 6 to 12 months, although some have maturities of several years. In contrast to "traditional" equity warrants, with covered warrants no new issuance of common stock occurs if the warrant is exercised. The underlying shares of common stock are usually either owned by the issuer of the covered warrants or the issuer has a mechanism, such as owning equity warrants for the underlying shares, through which they can obtain the shares. Covered warrants are very similar to options—much more so than "traditional" warrants. This is because covered warrants, just like options, can be created to allow holders to benefit from either rising prices or falling prices, by having both put and call warrants. They can also be created on a wide variety of underlying instruments not just equities and they are fairly standardised and are mostly traded on exchanges. The main difference is that warrants tend to have longer maturity dates, typically measured in years instead of months (as with options), and are easier to access for individuals as they can be bought and sold in the same way as shares in the stock exchange. Warrants are listed on a number of major exchanges, including the London Stock Exchange, Singapore Exchange, and Hong Kong Stock Exchange. They are popular with individual investors and traders particularly in Hong Kong, China, and European countries (especially Italy). They are seen as a flexible tool offering leveraged exposure to a wide range of underlyings such as equities, baskets, indices, currencies and commodities, while offering the benefits of transparency and liquidity. Popular indices, for example, include the FTSE100 in the UK or Germany's DAX, and popular commodities include oil, gold, and wheat. The main exposure is to market risk as the warrant will be profitable only when the market price exceeds the strike price for a "call warrant" or is below the strike for a "put warrant". The inherent leveraging effect of the warrant significantly increases the risks and traders that are using warrant to speculate can make or lose significant sums very quickly. With covered warrants the maximum loss is limited to the price paid for the warrant (ask or offer price) plus any commission or other transaction charges. Thus, although warrants are classed as high risk they are not as risky as other investment products such as contracts for differences or spread betting in which an investor would have to pay for future losses. Another aspect of risk is that an investor could lose their entire investment if the corporation issuing the warrant becomes insolvent.
