Royal wedding to boost struggling UK shop sales

Moody’s: Earthquake costs could accelerate Japanese debt crisis

first_img THE earthquake and tsunami in Japan could bring forwards a crucial “tipping point” for market confidence in its sovereign debt, according to Moody’s Investor Services.Ratings agencies have so far held off reviewing the status of Japan’s debt, which S&P recently downgraded, saying that it will take time for the fiscal consequences of the tragedy to become clear. The country’s debt-to-GDP ratio is forecast to exceed 200 per cent this year.Moody’s said it understood that Tokyo will have to suspend tackling its debt in order to provide relief to the millions left homeless by the disaster.But the agency’s Thomas Byrne said: “A tipping point may be reached at some point if the market loses confidence in the soundness of government finances… The earthquake may have shifted such a potential tipping point a bit forward.”S&P agreed that there would be no immediate effect on Japan’s rating but said: “The additional costs will add to the already existing fiscal weaknesses.”Around 90 per cent of Japan’s public debt is owned by domestic savers, many of them pension funds, which has so far enabled it to keep interest rates low despite its high debt load.

ECONOMISTS’ VIEWS: WILL THE SLUMP IN THE RETAIL SECTOR CONTINUE?

first_img Show Comments ▼ RICHARD LIM | BRITISH RETAIL CONSORTIUM“We saw the worst high street sales for 16 years in our survey for March, and I expect the Office for National Statistics data to show a similar picture. There was definitely an impact from Easter falling later this year, but the size of the fall in sales was beyond any seasonal impact.”HOWARD ARCHER | IHS GLOBAL INSIGHT“We forecast retail sales volumes to have fallen by 0.6 per cent month-on-month in March after dipping by 0.8 per cent in February. Consumers are clearly less able and willing to spend as their purchasing power is squeezed hard by high inflation, muted wage growth and the increasing fiscal squeeze.”ANDREW GOODWIN | ERNST AND YOUNG ITEM CLUB“We don’t expect the figures to be as bad as in February. We think that February’s data was very heavily influenced by the fact that January’s sales were boosted by strong spending prior to the VAT rise. The ONS should also adjust its figures to account for the late-falling Easter this year.” Sunday 17 April 2011 10:57 pm ECONOMISTS’ VIEWS: WILL THE SLUMP IN THE RETAIL SECTOR CONTINUE?

Hills to open new Malta office ahead of Brexit

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Strategy William Hill has confirmed plans to establish a new satellite office in Malta as part of its preparations for Brexit. The bookmaker is currently headquartered in Gibraltar, but uncertainly remains as to how the UK’s exit from the European Union will impact the British Overseas Territory. Bet365 also recently revealed plans to open a new site in Malta, but at the same time committed to its office in Gibraltar.Ulrik Bengtsson, chief digital officer at William Hill, made a similar pledge when outlining the bookmaker’s plans to the Times of Malta newspaper, saying all of the firm’s other sites will be “unaffected” by the move. “We are setting up a Malta office and a small initial organisation for our international facing business post-Brexit,” said Bengtsson, who previously headed up the Betsson operation in Malta “All current locations are unaffected by the new operation.” A William Hill spokesman also said it was likely that the Malta office will employ only a small number of staff. The spokesman said: “With William Hill’s online customer base overwhelmingly in the UK, Gibraltar will continue to be its key operational hub post-Brexit. “However, Malta provides an option for international operations should they be required after Brexit so an exploratory project team is being recruited with regulatory, legal and compliance roles.”Related article: Bet365 confirms Malta move but commits to Gibraltar Hills to open new Malta office ahead of Brexit Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops 4th June 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Strategy William Hill has confirmed plans to establish a new satellite office in Malta as part of its preparations for Brexit Regions: Europe Southern Europe Malta Email Addresslast_img read more
