So little stability
Tue 18:12
To prepare for Brexit, Banks have transferred billions of pounds in client
assets to new European Union legal entities and shifted around 2,000 roles away from London to new hubs in cities including Dublin, Paris, Frankfurt and Madrid.

But now the hard graft is complete, the industry biggest players say they would not reverse those changes even if Brexit was scrapped.

Spreading top talent across several European cities has enhanced the banks' appeal to some EU clients and reduced costs linked to doing business in London, one of the world's most expensive cities.

"The horse has bolted," a source at one of the banks which responded to the survey said.

Spirals and Cycles
12 May '19

The problem is greedy Shareholders and CEO's intentionally forcing these companies into administration whilst paying themselves massive bonuses! How it works is you buy a company cheap say £10 million, then secure loans against it for £15 million, pay yourself a bonus of £15 million, then the company goes into administration and it's totally legal, as was proven by what happened to Phones 4 U, Debenhams and many others. The people at the top always walk away with loads of money in their pockets and it os the Taxpayer who are left to pick up the tab. This has now become standard business practice, but if you look at who it is behind this, it's all foreign investors or people like Mr.Green!

Companies are being put into administration - with shareholders losing everything - so that the banks can then re-lend against a lower valuation, or can re-issue equity at a lower valuation - and in doing so bolster their capital ratios. Yet the bankers forget that although this may bolster their capital ratios it is actually sucking all of the original equity value (what the shareholders believed the shares to be worth when they bought them) out of the UK economy - which is going to lower the amount of money flowing around the UK economy in future - which is possibly going to inflict further losses on the people who bought the re-issued new equity or the people who took on the new loans against the re-valued/re-structured business.

It all sounds a bit like a negative, self-perpetuating, downwards spiral in terms of the economy. Individual decisions are always good for the individuals involved - but on the whole the economy seems to be slowing and the public are getting more annoyed about being told things will get better for the last 10 years - when for most people things have got worse (national insurance rises, enforced pension contributions, zero-hours contracts, reduced premiums for working Sundays, axing of defined -benefit pensions, explosion of pension fraud and incorrect information regarding pensions transfers to less-beneficial annuity schemes, foreign-owned utiilities increasing prices and then moving capital abroad without re-investing in UK, etc.)

RE: Capital for entrepreneurs
7 May '19
You sound like someone with a particular grievance against HSBA.

At the end of the day banks aren't there to implement measures that should be governments responsibility, they are simply in the business of making profit in whatever company in whatever country offers that opportunity.

I don't invest to lose money so if a bank showed signs of doing that I would have to withdraw my investments from it.

RE: Capital for entrepreneurs
6 May '19

Is there any chance of HSBC increasing the amount of lending to entrepreneurs in the UK - and making it easier for good ideas to receive funding without having to go through some completely inane online sequence of forms which are analysed by an algorithm and therefore what hope is there of good ideas getting funding (surely the people who understand the algorithm that HSBC is using can just siphon off all the capital to their mates?) Banking needs to go back to common sense - it'll be an awful economy if more-and-more lending decisions become algorithm controlled - because whoever writes the code will know exactly what the applicants need to enter into the system to receive an offer of funding - hence it will just result in massive crony-ism because the people who write the code will obviously help out their mates who may be in need of capital but may not have a very good business idea.

Oh well - I guess if there were no algorithms then people would just do their mate's favours anyway in terms of access to capital. Hence it's hard to see that either way is best - therefore probably the middle ground is the best to aim for.
