BGC Partners adds brokers with Mint buy

first_img Share whatsapp Thursday 19 August 2010 9:01 pm KCS-content whatsapp INTERDEALER broker BGC Partners has added more than 100 brokers through its purchase of Mint Partners for an undisclosed sum, in what one insider has labelled a large-scale hiring spree. Mint co-founders Richard Barnett and Timothy Bullman will join BGC as senior managing directors, but will remain co-chief executives of their original business and operate under the Mint name. “BGC’s strong balance sheet, global presence and pre-eminent technology platform, which were key factors in our decision to become part of BGC, create a tremendous opportunity to bring new capabilities and levels of service to our loyal clients worldwide,” the pair said in a statement. BGC, which currently employs around 1,600 brokers and sales staff, said the move was part of its strategy of “selective acquisitions, hiring experienced brokers, and investing in our proprietary technology”.Sean Lynn, BGC’s president, said: “With the addition and continuing growth of the Mint brand… we expect to augment our offerings to clients and expand our customer relationships.”But a source close to the company added: “Effectively it’s a giant recruitment exercise for BGC.”Mint was set up in 2004 by Barnett and Bullman, and expanded rapidly through the recession to list around 500 institutional clients and 150 members of staff in Dubai, New York and Paris today. Barnett fell into insurance broking after dropping out of school at 16, while Bullman studied town planning before they founded Mint.

Bank of England’s preferred measure of money supply fails to grow in July

According to figures published by the central bank yesterday, its preferred measure was flat on the month while the headline measure posted growth of 0.4 per cent compared to June. The three-month annualised growth of the preferred measure slowed to 5.6 per cent from 6.8 per cent, taking it back below the 6-9 per cent range that Bank governor Mervyn King has said he is aiming for. However, other economists point to the faster pace of growth in the key money supply measures since the start of the year, with M4X growing at 5.9 per cent over the past six months. Henderson’s Simon Ward points out that within broad money non-financial companies’ holdings rose by 0.9 per cent in July, pushing annual growth up to 4 per cent.But, unusually, households’ broad money holdings were unchanged in July. The last and only time this has happened since 1997 was in October 2008 at the height of the financial crisis. Ward attributes this lack of growth to households switching into mutual funds and borrowers repaying debts.

The move comes after rival trading platforms stole market share, in part due to regulatory changes following concern about competition.In February, LSE bought the high-frequency trading platform Turquoise as part of its response to changing demand. Turquoise, which uses technology from LSE-owned company Millennium IT in October, will form the basis of its new platform. Turquoise suffered a blow to its reputation earlier this month when the Millennium IT system it uses was taken out for two hours by suspected sabotage.The incident forced LSE to put back the move-over of the main market onto the Millennium IT system, but the firm insists that it has not affected its plans for the Europe-wide derivatives platform: “This was an isolated incident and, although a thorough investigation is ongoing, it is clear that it was unconnected to the functioning of the trading platform itself,” the company said in its third-quarter results statement. Overall, analysts were cautiously positive on LSE’s earnings. Its six-month pre-tax profit was up 26 per cent to £100.2m. Revenues from primary capital markets were up just one per cent on last year, to £297.9m, and revenues from cash equities in the UK fell 18 per cent to £44m.

No InstallTaonga: The Island Farmthedelite.comNetflix Cancellations And Renewals: The Full List For 2021thedelite.com THE UK’s biggest union, Unite, has elected a new leader reported to have said that “there is no such thing as an irresponsible strike”.Len McCluskey, currently assistant general secretary, was elected on a 16 per cent turnout, winning 101,000 votes – nearly double that of his nearest rival. The vote, to be announced formally on Wednesday, is a resounding victory for the union’s left, with Les Bayliss, the main moderate candidate who had argued against the BA strikes, coming in third place with 46,000 votes. Jerry Hicks, endorsed by the Socialist Worker, came second with 52,000 votes.McCluskey’s victory could open the door to the adoption of a more militant strategy by Unite, a merged body of five formerly independent unions with a total of 1.4m members. McCluskey will also be a more powerful figure than the union’s previous leaders because he is its first single general secretary. The role was formerly shared by rivals Tony Woodley and Derek Simpson.In response to McCluskey’s election, Tory party chairman Baroness Warsi said: “Labour’s reliance on Unite’s bank balance means that Len McCluskey can hold the party to ransom and win extreme, left-wing policy concessions.”Ed Miliband was elected Labour leader with the help of Unite members in September, but in response, a spokesman for Ed Miliband said: “That is absurd. The election of the Unite leader has no bearing on Ed whatsoever.”THE WORLD ACCORDING TO……MCCLUSKEY on British Airways“BA management’s real agenda is destroying trade unionism among its employees.”MCCLUSKEY on the Labour Party“We must return Labour to its roots as a radical reformist party.”MCCLUSKEY on the City“The government is making ordinary people pay for the bankers’ crash with savage cuts.”MCCLUSKEY on other unions“Under my leadership, Unite will secure further mergers with sister trade unions.”MCCLUSKEY on the economic crisis“My political principles are clear.

With trading performance improving we see good scope for robust medium-term growth,” he said. Rigby said the group’s resilient performance was supported by subscription revenue in academic journals and professional information, which accounted for 36 per cent of total group revenue, and journal renewals at the start of the year met expectations.“With academic budgets under some pressure worldwide we are not in a scenario where we have got big price rises or are expecting large volume increases, but we expect to see some small top-line growth in the academic journal business in 2011,” he said on a conference call with reporters.“That was are expectation and the renewals have cemented that.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more
