Western banks "outclassed" by banks in emerging markets

COUNTRY FOCUS: UZBEKISTAN

• ALOQABANK IS THE BEST BANK IN UZBEKISTAN”

— LAFFERTY 1000

LONDON, UK, July 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Banks from Western Europe, North America and Australia are now clearly outclassed by banks in emerging markets in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America. This is the striking conclusion of pioneering research for THE STATEMENT magazine across 1000 quoted banks in over 100 countries. The best-rated banks are found in South Africa, Saudi Arabia. Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, India, Turkey, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia and Mexico.

The research is generated from the LAFFERTY 1000 global banking database, which scores the one thousand banks for quality across 21 metrics and rates them from 1-star for the weakest to 5-stars for the best. Other findings include:

• Only 5 of the 1000 banks receive 5-star ratings and all are based in emerging markets

• With three exceptions, the mainly universal banking giants of Europe, North America, Japan and China that are designated as “globally significant” by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) are rated from poor to average at best.

• Italy’s UniCredit comes bottom of the group, with a 1-star rating.

These findings contradict the view, long held in the financial industry that the UK and the US are the leading countries for industry achievement.

COUNTRY FOCUS: UZBEKISTAN

• ALOQABANK IS THE BEST BANK IN UZBEKISTAN
———————————————————————

THE STATEMENT is a new Lafferty Group digital banking magazine. It is being established at the height of the economic, financial and human crises caused by the global coronavirus pandemic in order to help progressive banks and bankers find a new way ahead for the industry.

The magazine takes as its starting point the current state of 1000 of the world’s largest quoted banks and rates each of them for their quality and sustainability using 21 metrics – from financial performance to how they treat a range of stakeholders including staff, customers, the unbanked, regulators, the environment – and not least shareholders.

The bank quality rating system on which the database is anchored uses a heuristic methodology to analyse the signals that banks are sending out in their annual reports – intentionally or otherwise – and combines them to score the overall bank. It uses the annual report because of its unique status as the primary vehicle for management of a bank to communicate and account to shareholders and other stakeholders.

Michael Lafferty, Chief Executive of Lafferty Group said:

“Banks from emerging markets are now setting the pace in world banking. They are more focused and unfettered by the mistakes that have done so much damage to Western banks. These mistakes include a misguided love affair with universal banking and the destructive ideology of shareholder value”.

Alexander Erickson, LAFFERTY 1000 Research & Database Manager added:

“Emerging market banks are becoming key and prominent players in banking, particularly in areas such as financial inclusion, diversity and climate risk policy. This has opened up new doors and altered the course of research and data analytics.”

Mission Accomplished. 8 Digital tablets delivered to the Hospital Costa del Sol.

JUCRA Digital

Keeping up the community spirit!

This week saw the 8th and final Samsung Tablet delivered to the Hospital Costa Del Sol!

MARBELLA, MALAGA, SPAIN, July 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

This week, JUCRA Digital saw the 8th and final Samsung Tablet delivered to the Hospital Costa Del Sol! It has taken almost 2 months, what with stock issues and delays due to COVID-19, however, persistence was maintained with 8 Samsung Tablets, 3 Tablet Stands and 8 Tablet Protective Cases delivered to a grateful staff at the hospital.

On the 1st April Justin Parks, Chairman of the Costa Gaels Gaelic Football Club, and partner in JUCRA Digital, started a fundraiser on Facebook and in less than 2 days a whopping €2132 was raised! Thanks to the generosity of Club Members, local businesses and the general public, this money was used to directly benefit the patients, and doctors and nurses in the Hospital Costa Del Sol, in Marbella, during the height of the Corona Virus pandemic.

"A big thank you to the staff at JUCRA Digital and their efforts of getting the equipment ordered and delivered to where they needed to be. Without the team's involvement, coordination and determination during the lockdown, the tablets most likely would have been delayed" said Justin Parks.

The tablets provided were a fundamental tool for the patients to be able to keep in touch with loved ones when the quarantine was at its height and no visitors were allowed. They were also used to watch movies, play games and generally pass the time, in addition, another benefit is that the doctors are able to use the tablets to show scans and/or x-rays, analyses and reports to the patients at their bedside.

Besides the monetary generosity demonstrated during the COVID crisis, we also had numerous people donating their own tablets, other electronic equipment, hospital gowns, and even boxes of hand-sewn face masks. The Hospital Costa Del Sol has created a dedicated webpage to give thanks to all the donors: https://solidaridadcovid19.hcs.es.

The last 3 months have been very long, but seeing these acts of kindness and the solidarity of the local community restores faith and helps us all to look forward to the future and a healthy “new normal”!

Spacetime is doomed”

— Nima Arkani-Hamed

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every day we find ourselves living in a whole new world, not sure which way is up and which way is down.

In Episode 3 of "Conversations at the Intersection of Cutting Edge of Science and Spirituality" on Awake TV Network, Jennifer K. Hill asks Dr. Deepak Chopra and Professor Don Hoffman: "What is the universe made of?"

Chopra and Hoffman concur, the answer could very well be consciousness. In this episode entitled "Everything is Nothing," Hoffman and Chopra debunk local and contextual realism, explaining that what you see might not be as real as you think.

"Conversations at the Intersection of Cutting Edge of Science and Spirituality" aims to explore consciousness, and how science and spirituality are beginning to come to the same essential truths from different perspectives. It launched 2020 in response to a growing friendship and mutual admiration between Deepak Chopra and Don Hoffman, and their desire to share their unique perspectives.

NTLA Releases Research Showing 6.4 Million Americans Did Not Pay Their Property Taxes in 2019

NTLA Foundation

Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Dir. & Founder, NTLA Foundation

Unpaid property tax bills left America’s cities and counties with a financial shortfall of more than $15.7 billion

Nobody wants higher taxes with this new economy… Delinquent taxpayers generally have 2-3 years to pay which over 99% of them eventually do without facing losing their properties.”

— Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Director & NTLA Foundation Founder

JUPITER, FL, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Tax Lien Association (NTLA), the #1 educator and non-profit tax sale trade association, recently released research that shows how many property owners failed to pay their taxes on time; additionally, how much each US state is owed from the non-payment of property taxes. The report release in June 2020 does not take into account a predicted 30% increase in delinquent taxpayers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The data, aggregated by Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Director and Founder of the NTLA Foundation, demonstrates the ill effects of what a $15 billion budget deficit creates on local governments if no mechanism existed to collect these delinquent taxes. With $15 billion dollars, America could build 333 new high schools or pay 300,000 more high school teachers’ salaries!

Currently, 30 US states sell tax certificates to the private sector, in 2019 alone, over $4.3 billion of lost revenue was recouped to fill local government budgets. These funds go directly to fund public schools, emergency services, etc. More cash-strapped states and local governments will turn to tax sales to avoid defaulting on their obligations or cutting school funding.

“The NTLA has a responsibility to report on the ramifications and imminent repercussions that will occur in 2020-2021 as a result of the current social and economic issues the United States faces from COVID-19,” said Westover. “This report will establish the ‘pre-COVID’ baseline by which the economic hardship of the Coronavirus will be measured against for years to come. Next year will likely reach a historic high in America of $20.5 billion in unpaid property taxes.”

“The good news for the 30 states that do sell delinquent taxes is that they have an effective tool to recoup lost revenue without raising taxes,” continued Westover. “Nobody wants higher taxes with this new economy—and the icing on the cake is delinquent taxpayers generally have 2-3 years to pay which over 99% of them eventually do without facing losing their properties.”

“If there ever was a win-win solution with the private sector and public sector working together, this is it!” remarked Ted Doman, NTLA President. “Governments have funds to operate and investors lend money for a time for delinquent taxpayers to recover.”

Doctors Predict Surge of Workplace Health Problems

Doctors are becoming increasingly concerned about facing a cascade of workplace health problems during the fallout from COVID-19.

As a society, we just don’t have the resources to face the coming crisis in occupational health”

— Dr. Wendy Snell MBBS DCH FPC DRCOG Dip OH MSc OH

WOLVERHAMPTON, WEST MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doctors are becoming increasingly concerned about facing a cascade of health problems during the fallout from COVID-19, with some predicting serious consequences for employers as well as employees.

Whilst many of us develop a degree of structure around remote working, or return to work with social distancing in place, many employers don’t realise that the burden of managing health problems amongst their employees sits firmly on their desks.

“As a society, we just don’t have the resources to face the coming crisis in occupational health” says Dr. Wendy Snell MBBS DCH FPC DRCOG Dip OH MSc OH, an occupational health specialist practising in London.

“There are already more occupational health jobs than doctors or nurses available to fill them and demand for the specialism is rocketing, which means employers will be waiting to get advice as waiting lists grow” she said.

Dr. Snell continued that "whilst waiting lists are commonly associated with NHS care, employers across the UK are about to find the same problem if they need to get professional advice about how to manage an employee’s health problem".

With laws like the Equality Act 2010 setting down that employers must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to an employee’s role or environment before considering if an employee can be dismissed on health grounds, demand for occupational health advice has been steadily increasing for years, long before the arrival of COVID-19.

“We’ve seen huge increases in enquiries in recent weeks” says Magnus Kauders, Managing Director of Occupational Health Assessment Limited, an occupational health provider based in Wolverhampton.

“Requests for help from employers usually follow very predictable seasonal peaks, yet the last month has been ridiculous. We’ve seen a 100% increase in demand in the last two weeks alone” he said.

Other specialists across the country have also expressed concern about the long-term impact of the lockdown on employee’s health, particularly psychological and mental health. Geoff Heyes, Head of Health Policy and Influencing at the mental health charity Mind, has called for proactive detection of problems among COVID-19 survivors, but is concerned NHS mental health services may be already too overstretched.

“Going into this pandemic, only one in three people who needed help for their mental health were actually getting any support. Coming out we are going to see even higher demand.”

Continuing the theme, Drinkaware CEO Elaine Hindal issues a stark warning from the Alcohol Health Alliance. “What’s worrying is that lockdown and continued isolation could result in concerning drinking patterns going unnoticed until it’s too late. Employers must use every opportunity to plan for a return to work that prioritises employee health and wellbeing.”

Employer’s groups are also becoming increasingly concerned. The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development say “Employee health, safety and well-being during this time is paramount. Employers need to be proactive in protecting their people and minimising the risk to staff and business continuity.” The Society of Occupational Medicine has also called for swift action to provide universal access to occupational health across the UK, stressing that only half of the UK’s population have access to workplace health support.

“We’re used to employers suddenly finding they have a health issue to consider when they embark on a redundancy programme” said Mr. Kauders “although the numbers taking those steps now are pushing a wave of problems straight into occupational health to sort out” he continued “it’s really difficult for everyone involved”.

Tangible IP Announces the Sale of 20 Interactive Music & AR/VR Patents

Tangible IP Announces the Sale of 20 Interactive Music & AR/VR Patents

SEATTLE, WA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tangible IP, LLC, an international patent brokerage and Intellectual Property advisory firm headquartered in Seattle, with over 3500 patents successfully brokered, announced that it successfully completed the sale of a 20 asset patent portfolio pertaining to interactive music, also containing augmented and virtual reality patents, which was developed over the last two decades by US-based operating company Beamz Interactive, Inc. Beamz is the leading developer of interactive music technology, software applications, and intellectual property for a broad range of music, virtual music, gaming, education, healthcare and consumer markets and applications. The identity of the acquirer nor financial details of the agreement could be disclosed. The portfolio is widely relevant to several industry members across several product lines such as interactive music games, MIDI controllers and other high end music equipment, and will remain available for licensees who want to take advantage of the new acquirer’s licensing program.

“We retained Tangible IP as our patent broker a few years back and they did a great job understanding our technical contributions as a company and the value of our patents,” said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. “They immediately set to preparing first class marketing materials and started a thorough outreach campaign on our behalf. Although we had to decline some initial offers they generated and then had to take our portfolio off the market for a while to accommodate some other business needs, Tangible IP was there when we were finally ready to resume things; they continued to work tirelessly as our advocates throughout and did not relent until they had finally found a good fit for our portfolio pursuant to business terms that make this a win-win with the acquirer. It is rare these days that we find this kind of dedication for such a long period and we feel very fortunate that we had this partnership with them,” said Mr. Mollo.

“For decades, Beamz has been a true pioneer in making music creation accessible to all and they have made really valuable technological contributions to the interactive music & AR/VR spaces along the way,” said Louis Carbonneau, CEO & Founder of Tangible IP. “As an operating company, they did not want to get involved in asserting their patents against several parties, so we had to be creative in finding an acquirer that understood the strength of the assets and would provide our client with just compensation for the value of their patent portfolio,” said Carbonneau. “We had been working with Beamz on this project for quite a while and this is testament, once again, that our long-term approach to business ultimately pays off for our clients.”

To receive information regarding other portfolios presently under brokerage with us, please inquire at info@tangibleip.biz.

Tangible IP, LLC specializes in selling high quality unencumbered patents and has now brokered the sale or license of over 3500 patent assets since its inception and has returned tens of millions of dollars back to inventors, shareholders and patent owners.
