Excluding such roles, only nine out of 212 senior investment banking executives are women – just 4.2 per cent. A specific breakdown of the investment banking statistics reveal the least female representation of all, with women better represented on group boards or group executive committees than in specific investment banking divisions.Five of the banks surveyed had no women on the executive committees that run their banking divisions. Deutsche Bank, Barclays Capital, RBC Capital Markets, Jeffries and Mediobanca all have male-only boards, with a further six banks that have appointed just one woman to the committees. Swiss bank Credit Suisse fared a little better in the research, with four women sitting on its 16-person corporate and investment banking board, including finance chief Lara Warner, and credit officer Sharon Meadows. Nomura declined to name the members of its investment banking committee, but said that three of the 17 were women, with Clara Furse the sole female member of the Japanese bank’s group board. The study also draws attention to new French legislation passed in January, which introduces quotas that require businesses to have a minimum of 20 per cent of their board made up of women, rising to 40 per cent within six years. The UK has so far shied away from quotas, with key figures such as Lord Davies and Lord Myners insisting they are unnecessary in order to reach the desired figures.

Argentine Peso rates continue to impact Codere in Q1

first_imgFinance Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe LATAM Codere has again cited the devaluation of the Argentine Peso as the main reason behind a year-on-year decline in revenue during the first quarter, despite seeing growth across its Mexican, Italian, Spanish and online operations.Operating revenue in the three months to March 31, 2019 amounted to €357.7m (£310.6m/$402.1m), down 6.7% on the €383.3m of the first quarter of 2018.As was the case with its full-year results for 2018, Codere said the drop in value of the Argentine Peso pushed overall revenue down. Revenue in Argentina slipped 34.2% from €122.7m to €80.7m as a result but, on a constant currency basis, this would have been up 20.6% year-on-year.Madrid-listed Codere also noted a decline in revenue in Panama, Uruguay and Colombia, but Mexican revenue was up 9.3% year-on-year to €83.5m. The operator also saw growth in Spain, with revenue up 8.2% to €48.6m, while Italian revenue rose 1.3% to €86.5m.Online revenue also rocketed by 69.3% year-on-year from €8.8m in the first three months of 2018 to €14.9m in the same period this year.Codere was able to partially offset the drop in revenue by cutting its operating expenses by 7.3% from €293.3m to €271.8m. This was primarily achieved by cutting personnel costs by 10.8% to €127.0m.Rental expenses climbed 22.2% to €8.7m and costs of goods sold were up 5.2% to €12.8m, but other costs were down 4.8% to €62.4m. There was also a 10.8% drop in gaming and other taxes from €142.4m to €127.0m.However, despite efforts to reduce spending in Q1, Codere reported a net loss of €3.6m, an increase of 32.1% on the €2.7m last year. Earnings before corporate income taxes also slipped from €11.8m to €6.5m.Codere posted an operating profit pre-inflation accounting of €41.1m, up 8.2% on €38.0m last year, but with the inclusion of inflation accounting, this figure was down 0.2% to €37.9m. Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation increased marginally to €68.0m.Reflecting on the results, Codere said in a statement that it is now benefitting from a more balanced geographic portfolio, due to growth in Mexico, Spain and online.Codere also highlighted the recent decision to reorganise its management structure and said this will help the operator realise and achieve its regional targets.The new structure splits operational and regional leadership into two sections, with officials reporting to group CEO Vicente Di Loreto.Carlos Villaseca will continue as chief operations officer for retail, with Moshe Edree to serve in the same role for digital. Serafín Gómez will oversee security and compliance functions.Codere has also set out three specific regional roles, with Alejandro Pascual to serve as regional manager for the operator in Europe, Rodrigo González in Mexico and Bernardo Chena in Latin America, with the exception of Mexico.The group’s existing country managers for Argentina, Colombia, Panama and Uruguay will remain in place, reporting to the new regional managers.Meanwhile, Codere has also extended its commercial partnership with Spanish LaLiga football club Real Madrid. Codere will retain its role as the team’s official betting partner.Image: Diego Torres Silvestre Email Address Codere has again cited the devaluation of the Argentine Peso as the main reason behind a year-on-year decline in revenue during the first quarter, despite seeing growth across its Mexican, Italian, Spanish and online operations.

Raging Rhino fined for offering illegal gambling in the Netherlands

first_imgEarlier this week the regulator’s chair René Jansen also issued a warning to prospective licensees, about advertising in the regulated market.  Curaçao-based operator Raging Rhino has been hit with a €440,000 fine by Dutch regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) for illegally offering online gaming in the Netherlands.

In total, 224,630 transactions – totalling more than €18m – were processed through iDEAL between 1 May and 31 July 2020. Access to the site in the Netherlands has since been blocked, and the fine paid by Raging Rhino.  Ranging Rhino’s fine is the second enforcement action announced by the KSA today, following a series of raids carried out in the municipality of Velsen and in Spain, as part of an investigation into illegal online gaming operations.  Regions: Western Europe Netherlands He said that operators would naturally aim to ramp up customer acquisition efforts as they fight for market share after launch, but warned that excessive advertising could lead to a public backlash, and tighter regulations.  Compliance Tags: Kansspelautoriteit An investigation by the KSA found that Raging Rhino’s LuckyDays.com site was accessible to Dutch customers, and offered links to problem gambling help services in Dutch.  The KSA noted that online games of chance remain prohibited until the country’s regulated igaming market opens for business on 1 October.  Email Addresslast_img read more

Saracens awarded Premier 15s win after Harlequins Covid breach

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “The club confirm that it is appealing the level of sanction and will make no further comment at this stage, pending the outcome of that appeal.”These two teams have been the most successful in Premier 15s history and contested the final in both 2018 and 2019, Saracens winning on both occasions.If the points decision stands, Saracens would move level on 40 points with Quins, who are unbeaten so far this season, at the top of the table.Meanwhile, Saracens were dealt their first defeat of the season last weekend, with Exeter Chiefs winning 22-14 at Sandy Park.Quins will next meet Saracens in the league on 27 March.Since the Premier 15s season resumed last weekend following a two-week break, players and staff at the ten clubs are taking lateral flow Covid tests twice a week. Matches this season have also been played under adapted laws to limit face-to-face exposure. Saracens awarded Premier 15s win after Harlequins Covid breachSaracens have been awarded a ‘win’ for their postponed Allianz Premier 15s match against Harlequins after the RFU ruled that Quins had breached the Minimum Operating Standards regarding Covid-19.The match was originally scheduled for 12 December but was postponed until 2 January due to a positive Covid case at Saracens.The game then had to be postponed again after a Quins player tested positive, which resulted in 28 players having to self-isolate, and it was rescheduled for 20 February.However, the volume of players isolating triggered an investigation by the Premier 15s Disputes Committee and it was found that Quins had breached the agreed standards that require training sessions to be recorded to assist with contact tracing.The result of the investigation means that the RFU has ruled the result of the match as a Saracens win, with five points allocated to them.An RFU statement read: “An investigation was conducted to understand the reasons for the need to isolate such a large number of individuals. It was established that the club accepted it had breached the agreed Minimum Operating Standards that require that outdoor training sessions must be recorded to assist with the required contact tracing protocols.“The Minimum Operating Standards have been put in place to ensure that the health and wellbeing of all and by not filming their contact training sessions there was a requirement to isolate so many people.”However, Harlequins are appealing the decision, saying: “Harlequins note the decision and proposed sanction of the RFU’s Disputes Committee.

Editors of Errissala and Essafir freed

first_img Help by sharing this information March 16, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Editors of Errissala and Essafir freed AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria News Reporters Without Borders voiced relief today on learning of the release of Kamel Bousaâd and Berkane Bouderbala, the editors of the two sister weeklies Errissala and Essafir, who had been held for more than a month in Serkadji prison in Algiers for reprinting three of the controversial Mohammed cartoons. They were freed yesterday.Bousaâd was arrested on 8 February and Bouderbala was arrested on 11 February as a result of a complaint brought by the communication ministry under article 144b of the Algerian criminal code, which says: “Any person who offends the Prophet or the envoys of God or denigrates the dogma or precepts of Islam is punished by three to five years in prison.”————————————————————————–12.02.2006 Detention of two magazine editors over Mohammed cartoons called “absurd”Reporters Without Borders today condemned as “absurd and dangerous” the detention since early February of Kamel Bousaâd and Berkane Bouderbala, the editors of two sister Arabic-language weeklies, for reprinting three of the Mohammed cartoons that were published last September in the Danish daily Jyllands Posten. Their magazines have been suspended and they face prison sentences.“It is hard to imagine that Bousaâd and Bouderbala were trying to offend Islam and the Prophet when they reprinted these cartoons,” the press freedom organisation said. “Aside from the fact that caricature is one of the standard journalistic genres, you cannot expect journalists to try to explain this controversy without making at least a limited reference to what it is all about.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We call on the communication ministry, which brought the prosecution against these journalists, to withdraw and its complaint and allow the two weeklies to resume publishing.”The magazines, Essafir and its religious supplement Errisala, reprinted three of the Mohammed cartoons in their 2 February issues, immediately prompting the communication ministry to file complaints with the prosecutor’s office in Algiers.Bousaâd, Errisala’s editor, was arrested and placed in custody in Algiers’ Serkadji prison on 8 February. Bouderbala, the editor of Essafir, was placed in custody in the same prison three days later.They have been charged under article 144b of the Algerian criminal code, which says: “Any person who offends the Prophet or the envoys of God or denigrates the dogma or precepts of Islam is punished by three to five years in prison.” The suspension of the two magazines was an administrative decision.The heads of the two public television stations Canal Algérie and A3 were meanwhile also removed from their posts this week for showing the Mohammed cartoons in news reports about the outcry they had triggered.
