EXCLUSIVE: Ex-ASIC investigator and standover man line up on opposite sides at Lazar hearing    http://sydneyinsolvencynews.blogspot.com.au/2014_11_01_archive.html Ian Lazar's current legal team: Jacquie Saldaneri and Niall Coburn A former ASIC senior investigator and an alleged standover man are the latest players to enliven the ongoing bail hearing of accused fraudster Ian Lazar.Niall Coburn, a Queensland-based barrister who was formerly a specialist investigator for the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), appeared at the Central Local Court in Sydney today on behalf of Lazar, who remains in custody on charges of defrauding an elderly woman out of her home.

Common currency: a forex scandal that epitomises the blindness in the banking crisis 16 November 2014, 8.19pm AEDT http://theconversation.com/common-currency-a-forex-scandal-that-epitomises-the-blindness-in-the-banking-crisis-34150   The biggest open secret in the financial world has been confirmed. Regulators in the UK, the US and Switzerland have announced massive fines for some of the world’s largest banks for a manipulation of global currency markets that in its callous ubiquity says so much about the banking behaviours that sparked the global financial crisis. Fines levied by the UK regulator add up to £1.1 billion. The US regulator announced fines of $1.4 billion. Banks hit by these fines include UBS, Citi, JP Morgan, HSBC and RBS. Barclays is yet to come to a settlement on the back of the investigations. The probe uncovered individuals traders within large banks who were working together in trading clubs which had names you would expect from the “ruthless narcissists” on BBC TV show, The...

ANZ acts fast on traders by:John Durie From:The Australian November 21, 2014 http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/opinion/anz-acts-fast-on-traders/story-e6frg9io-1227130053906   THE global banking world works in mysterious ways, as shown by ANZ’s decision to suspend seven traders on full pay amid allegations of market rigging in the bank bill swap rate. The bank disclosed the suspension knowing that, once the market was aware a bunch of traders had vacated their desks, it would become the talk of the market. ANZ and Westpac are two of the biggest local players in the institutional swaps market, so if ANZ felt the need to take cautionary disciplinary action the obvious question then is what Westpac is thinking. What is clear is any argument the local oligopoly pretends to have against the impact of global regulation is effectively shot by the sort of trading activity that has been allowed to prosper. We are not talking about breaking any laws here yet,...

Xenophon and Labor extend olive branch to Cormann GARETH HUTCHENS 21 Nov, 2014   http://www.farmonline.com.au/news/metro/national/general/xenophon-and-labor-extend-olive-branch-to-cormann/2717926.aspx   The Labor Party and independent senator Nick Xenophon say they are willing to extend an olive branch to Finance Minister Mathias Cormann after they successfully disallowed his controversial financial advice regulations in the senate this week. A so-called "coalition of common sense" comprising Labor, Greens, independent and other cross bench senators voted on Wednesday night to disallow the Abbott government's Future of Financial Advice regulations in the senate. The move took the government by surprise and means the industry will now have to return to the former Labor government's Future of Financial Advice laws. In response, Mr Cormann issued a formal statement saying he did not plan to give up on his reforms and he still wanted to pursue the matter through the senate. "The government will continue to progress its substantive FOFA legislation giving...

  Finance industry standards report a new headache for Mathias Cormann Banking and FinanceBusiness Date November 21, 2014 Adele Ferguson http://www.theage.com.au/business/banking-and-finance/finance-industry-standards-report-a-new-headache-for-mathias-cormann-20141120-11qh68.html   After losing the battle to windback financial advice laws, Senator Mathias Cormann will need to carefully consider how he reacts to a report from an industry working group into the professional, ethical and educational standards of financial planners. The 74-page report, which just landed in Senator Cormann's inbox, is understood to conclude that the financial planning industry requires a new "holistic framework" to help rebuild public confidence after a string of scandals and revelations that it takes eight days to qualify as a financial planner. It says the existing minimum education and training standards are inadequate and a "lack of consistent ethics and conduct standards causes divergences of practices across the industry" and mandatory adoption of a code of conduct would promote lift the ethics of the sector.   It...

Claim Banksia knew Statewide’s loan book was ‘sh*thouse’ PUBLISHED: 5 hours 57 MINUTES AGO | UPDATE: 5 hours 56 MINUTES AGO   Receivers allege Banksia directors “knew or should have known” that Statewide’s loan book was high risk and that integrating the loan book into Banksia’s balance sheet would expose the lender to “serious financial harm”. Photo: Angela Milne Georgia Wilkins Directors of failed rural lender Banksia Securities signed off on a deal to merge with struggling investment firm Statewide despite describing its loan book as “sh*thouse”, court documents allege. The deal has been blamed for the sudden demise of the Victorian lender, which collapsed in 2012 owing investors $660 million. Receivers McGrathNicol have now launched legal proceedings against the lender’s former directors, auditors and legal advisers in the Supreme Court of Victoria. They allege the directors breached their duties, in part by signing off on the Statewide merger despite its...

Wall Street Stunned As Iceland Dares To Jail Banker Involved In 2008 Crash   Submitted by Tyler Durden on 11/20/2014 22:02 -0500 Bond   Creditors   headlines   Iceland   Reuters       inShare3     The impossible is possible. Never say never. Wall Street bankers are staring agog at headlines coming from Europe where, in Iceland, the former chief executive of one of the largest banks in the country which was involved in crashing the economy in 2008 has been sentenced to jail time. As Valuewalk reports, in receiving a one year prison sentence, Sigurjon Arnason officially became the first bank executive to be convicted of manipulating the bank’s stock price and deceiving investors, creditors and the authorities between Sept. 29 and Oct. 3, 2008, as the bank’s fortunes unwound, crashing the economy with it. It appears he was as shocked by the verdict as Wall Street-ers are, "this sentence is a big surprise to me as...

By Graham Hand on February 11, 2013   http://cuffelinks.com.au/super-misses-out-on-government-deposit-guarantee/   It’s called the Financial Claims Scheme, better known as the government deposit guarantee, and it provides comfort to millions of Australians who hold their savings in deposits with Australian banks, building societies and credit unions (collectively called Australian Deposit-Taking Institutions, or ADIs). Indeed, when the Treasurer, Wayne Swan, announced the revised scheme in September 2011, he wrote: It will ensure that we continue to have one of the most generous and secure deposit insurance schemes in the world, and builds on the Government’s record of ensuring our financial system remains among the strongest in the world. But here’s the bothersome fact: the government guarantee on deposits does not apply to deposits offered in public superannuation funds. Many financial experts and financial advisers are unaware of this, even the highest profile writers who are read by millions, which suggests nobody has corrected...

Christopher Joye No peace in financial advice wars PUBLISHED: 20 Nov 2014 10:30:00 | UPDATED: 21 Nov 2014   http://www.afr.com/f/free/blogs/christopher_joye/no_peace_in_financial_advice_wars_zLdgv3c0zJLnspeT18QJaI   In true Terminator style, Mathias Cormann’s contentious wind-back of Labor’s Future of Financial Advice (FoFA) laws refuses to die.  About two minutes after the Senate voted to disallow Cormann’s radical FoFA changes, the Minister for Finance, aka the “Cormannator”, emailed this columnist with the belligerent news: “Given our changes had force of law for five months, ASIC will provide another transitional period to 1 July 2015.” Rather than accepting defeat, Cormann’s Frankensteinian version of FoFA will now remain afoot until July next year. That means tremendous uncertainty as to what long-term industry architecture business will be working under. It will be bad for consumers, who will be exposed to unacceptable new conflicts, and advisers and institutions, which will be subject to another seven months of debate about their capacity for...

ANZ traders stood down over interest rate rigging probe Banking and Finance Date November 20, 2014 James Eyres http://www.theage.com.au/business/banking-and-finance/anz-traders-stood-down-over-interest-rate-rigging-probe-20141119-11pxmn.html   ANZ Banking Group has stood down seven traders being targeted by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission for possible manipulation of Australia's benchmark interest rate. The regulator is investigating an extensive period of potential misconduct in the Bank Bill Swap Rate (BBSW) market from early 2007 to 2013. Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS and BNP Paribas have already been forced to pay fines for their role in manipulating the rate, but this is the first time one of the big four Australian banks has been identified as being involved in potential misconduct. ASIC is continuing to investigate 10 other members of the 14 member BBSW panel – including the three other big banks –but this is taking a long time and involves the review of millions of documents. ASIC's attention on...

Keane: govt hoisted by its own FOFA petard BERNARD KEANE Crikey politics editor |  EMAIL   |  COMMENT         ARTHUR SINODINOS, FINANCIAL PLANNING, FOFA, JACQUI LAMBIE, MATHIAS CORMANN, NICK XENOPHONE, RICKY MUIR, SAM DASTYARI   The failure of the government's long-running attempt to repeal the Future of Financial Advice laws has its genesis as much in decisions made at the end of 2013 as in Senator Jacqui Lambie's departure from the Palmer United Party and Labor's doggedness in pursuit of the outcome it achieved yesterday evening. Right before Christmas last year, then-assistant treasurer Arthur Sinodinos snuck out the government's planned gutting of FOFA, intended to deliver on the Coalition's commitments to the big banks and AMP, which control retail superannuation, and the diminishing but still powerful segment of the financial planning industry that relies on conflicted remuneration. Key to Sinodinos' strategy was doing as much of the gutting as possible by...

ASIC urged to be facilitative on FOFA 20 November, 2014 Mike Taylor http://www.moneymanagement.com.au/news/fofa/asic-urged-to-be-facilitative-on-fofa The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has been urged to take a facilitative approach to oversight of the Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) legislation in the wake of the Government's regulatory changes having been revoked by a vote in the Senate overnight. The call has been made by Financial Planning Association (FPA) chief executive, Mark Rantall, who last night informed a function associated with the FPA Congress that the Federal Opposition had been successful in joining with minor party senators to overturn the regulatory changes and that therefore many planners and planning firms would find themselves in breach of the FOFA laws. He said it was clear that planners had been blind-sided by events in the Senate and would need time to bring themselves into compliance with the FOFA changes as they had previously existed. Delegates attending the...

Banking culture breeds dishonesty, study finds DateNovember 20, 2014 - 2:33PM 9 reading now Read later     inShare submit to reddit Email article Print Reprints & permissions     What is it with bankers? Bank employees, when primed to think about their finance jobs, are more likely to cheat and be dishonest, researchers at the University of Zurich found in a study that enticed them with as much as $US200. The academics recruited 128 bank employees from a large, international bank - which was given anonymity - and randomly assigned them to two groups. One filled out a survey about their personal lives, and the other answered questions about their banking background. They were then told to toss a coin 10 times in private, and report the results. If they told researchers they guessed correctly on a toss, they collected $US20 for each correct guess. The people who'd been asked about...

Budget cuts spark fears of muzzled watchdogs Business Date November 15, 2014 Georgia Wilkins http://www.theage.com.au/business/budget-cuts-spark-fears-of-muzzled-watchdogs-20141114-11fwc5.html It was nine years ago that former Australian Securities and Investments Commission lawyer James Wheeldon walked away from the corporate watchdog, disappointed by what he said was a too-cosy relationship between the regulator and the big end of town. In the near-decade since, he's watched the regulator cop harsh criticism as retail investors lost billions of dollars from a string of corporate and investment collapses after the global financial crisis.   Giving explosive evidence in the recent Senate inquiry that lambasted ASIC's performance, Wheeldon accused the regulator of allowing policy decisions to be unduly influenced by lobby groups. And now, with ASIC poised to be stripped of tens of millions of dollars in funding, Wheeldon fears the budget cuts will leave the agency more vulnerable to industry demands, making Australia's burgeoning financial sector - and the millions...

Assist Finance auditor issues warning on company’s finances GIUSEPPE TAURIELLO THE ADVERTISER OCTOBER 21, 2014 12:00AM SHARE               THE auditor of fund manager Assist Finance has issued a warning over the company’s ability to repay its investors, shortly after he came under the spotlight of the corporate watchdog over earlier reports. Adelaide partner of global firm Ernst & Young, Nigel Stevenson faces sanctions from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) as the regulator continues its investigation into previous audits of Assist which failed to raise any concern about the company’s financial position. Less than nine months after Mr Stevenson signed off on the company’s 2012 accounts, a stop order was issued by ASIC, preventing Assist from raising new deposits into a multi-million dollar managed fund. Capital and interest payments to investors were immediately halted. Combined with a widespread crackdown on the mortgage fund industry,...

Australians to take on role of tax collector when buying property from foreign residents November 4, 2014 http://www.theage.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/australians-to-take-on-role-of-tax-collector-when-buying-property-from-foreign-residents-20141104-11gtiu.html   Feel like becoming a tax collector for the government?   Well, if you buy a property worth more than $2.5 million from a foreign resident then that is exactly what you will have to be if a Treasury proposal is adopted. Treasury says it would like Australians to withhold 10 per cent of the sale price of a property from foreign residents and hand that money to the Australian Tax Office. The measure will be a "collection mechanism" for the ATO to support the operation of the foreign resident capital gains tax regime.And it will be up to you to establish whether the person you are buying the property from is a foreign resident and whether the transaction involves "Australian taxable property." Your decision may involve "making some enquiries in certain circumstances," Treasury...

Alayne Fleischmann worked for JP Morgan and tried to be a whistleblower in its dodgy mortgages but was let go Network Writers ·  From: News Corp Australia ·  November 07, 2014   http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/business/companies/alayne-fleischmann-worked-for-jp-morgan-and-tried-to-be-a-whistleblower-in-its-dodgy-mortgages-but-was-let-go/story-fni0d54u-1227116506810   A LAWYER at JP Morgan has spoken out for the first time about how she was silenced as she tried to blow the whistle on the bank’s dodgy mortgages which cost it $9 billion in fines. Alayne Fleischmann told Rolling Stone that she alerted her managers about her concerns regarding the bank’s policy of reselling subprime mortgages to investors without warning clients of the danger. The sale of toxic subprime loans — by JP Morgan and other US banks, mainly to pension funds — triggered the crisis in the US housing market that became the global financial crisis of 2008. Ms Fleischmann said it was “like watching an old lady get mugged on the street” and that...

Hedge funds need regulating like banks to avoid financial instability, argues Penny Neal....Penny Neal is a Lecturer in macroeconomics, banking, and financial markets at the Flinders Business School, Adelaide.  Causes The immediate causes of the subprime mortgage crisis were the extremely low interest rates available from 2001 through 2004 and the poor quality of the loans that flowed from those rates. The US Federal Reserve reduced interest rates in response to the ‘tech wreck’ of 2001, which followed the dotcom boom of the late 1990s, and again reduced interest rates to steady market jitters following the September 11 terrorist attacks. The European Central Bank also reduced interest rates around this time, to deal with a slowdown in Europe. In 2003–04, the Fed was concerned about the threat of deflation and so further reduced rates in the US.   Lower interest rates meant there was a lot more money sloshing around in the...

Banks have more to do to prepare for crisis, warns APRA BusinessBanking and Finance November 7, 2014 http://www.theage.com.au/business/banking-and-finance/banks-have-more-to-do-to-prepare-for-crisis-warns-apra-20141107-11ihw0.html   Australian banks are well enough capitalised to withstand a severe shock to the economy, but poorly prepared to recover from a financial crisis, the banking regulator has warned. In a major speech in Sydney at lunchtime on Friday, Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority chairman Wayne Byres revealed the results of the regulator's industry-wide stress test of Australian banks' mortgage books conducted over recent months. "If we draw one conclusion from the stress test this year, it's that there remains more to do to be able to confidently deliver strength in adversity," Mr Byres said. With surging house prices in Sydney and Melbourne putting an unprecedented level of attention on the risks inside bank home loan books, Mr Byres said the low-risk nature of Australian housing portfolios "has traditionally provided ballast for Australian banks...
