Earnings per share rose 20 per cent to 16p from 13.3p in 2009 while funds under management grew six per cent to £309.3bn from £275.4bn in 2009. Sales were up seven per cent. Old Mutual, which tried to sell its stake in South African bank Nedbank last year, did not clarify whether it was still keen to sell, saying only that it would “continue to work with Nedbank to build shareholder value”. It also confirmed the sale of its US life business to Harbinger Capital for $350m (£215m), which Shore Capital analyst Eamonn Flanagan said was just 22 per cent of its $1.6bn IFRS net asset value.

Pension costs carried by the Treasury will soar from £4.3bn in this tax year to £7bn in 2015-16, according to the OBR’s latest forecast.Lord Hutton’s report proposes changes to the pension scheme of all the UK’s six million government sector workers. “Public sector employers should determine their own terms of employment,” criticised Philip Booth of the Institute of Economic Affairs. “Reforms must run with the grain of decentralisation and localisation.” Sharecenter_img Thursday 10 March 2011 8:03 pm Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndo KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Organisation blasts plans to block payments to foreign gaming sites Tags: Online Gambling Payments Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 22nd August 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has urged the Norwegian government to introduce new regulations to allow foreign gaming companies to operate in the country, saying the current system is “not sustainable”. At present, regulations only permit Norwegian punters to legally gamble with either Norsk tipping or Norsk Rikstoto. However, some opt to place bets with international companies that do not hold a licence in the country. Norway’s government recently completed a consultation on its proposal to begin blocking payment transactions to and from these foreign gaming websites. However, the EGBA has openly criticised the plans, saying such proposals are not a “realistic or effective measure to control internet activity”. The situation is now at a point where the EGBA has initiated court proceedings against plans to begin blocking payments, saying such activity is illegal under both Norwegian and EU law. The organisation said that blocking payments is “easy to circumvent, virtually impossible to enforce for Norwegian banks, and creates an artificial market by shutting off EU-licensed payment service providers”. The EGBA is instead calling for the government to develop new online regulation that is “modern, open to competition, protects consumers, and reflects consumer choice and the reality of the digital age of borderless internet”. Maarten Haijer (pictured), secretary general of the EGBA, said in a statement issued to iGamingBusiness.com: “From a consumer perspective, there are only two licensed gambling providers in Norway – both state-owned – and this is just not sustainable in an age when consumers can easily search around the internet for their preferred choice of gaming product. “A fundamental rethink and reworking of the Norwegian online gaming regime is therefore necessary to ensure that local and foreign operators can co-exist and have equal access to a well-regulated market which meets the realities of consumer demand for different gaming products.” Haijer said this can be “easily achieved” through a national licensing regime and cited the recent re-regulation of the Swedish market as an example of this. “This would enable the Norwegian gambling authority to bring the activity of foreign websites under its control, alongside existing state-owned operators,” Haijer said. “That’s exactly what the overwhelming majority of European countries have been doing, and that’s exactly what we are urging Norway to do.”The Norwegian Gaming Authority (NGA) has recently taken a number of steps to clamp down on unlicensed operators in the country. Earlier this month, the NGA revealed that it had succeeded in persuading Apple to remove unlicensed gambling apps from its App Store.In July, NGA reiterated its support for new regulations to limit the impact of unregulated gambling after a spike in advertising from offshore operators. International operators spent some NOK866m (€89.2m/$103m) on television advertising in Norway last year.

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Strategy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 4th September 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: UK & Ireland The UK Gambling Commission has unveiled details of a new series of events designed to help smaller operators improve their responsible gambling strategies as part of an ongoing effort to raise industry standards in the UK. The workshop events will focus on common compliance findings and tackling money laundering, as well as helping gamblers stay safe using multi-operator self-exclusion and local risk assessments. Manchester’s Performance Spaces Central Library will host the first of these events, with representatives from local smaller operators across the arcade, betting and bingo industries invited to attend. Helen Venn, executive director of compliance and licensing at the Commission, said: “Raising standards across the whole gambling industry is at the heart of our latest strategy to shape a well-regulated gambling market that works for consumers.“These workshops are a really important opportunity for us to engage with smaller operators on a face-to-face basis and to re-emphasise the importance of gambling businesses taking their anti-money laundering and social responsibility requirements seriously.” In recent weeks, the Commission has made a series of announcements outlining its commitment to tackling issues related to responsible gambling in the UK. Last month, the regulator published updated rules on advertising, pledging to take “tougher action” against gambling firms that breach regulations in the UK. This followed a call to arms in July for UK gambling industry to “step up” to help the regulator improve standards across the sector. In August, the Commission also announced it was to work with the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board on a new research project that will look into whether some gambling products and environments are more harmful than others. The Commission last week also backed calls from the Competition and Markets Authority for operators to make it easier for customers to withdraw funds from their online accounts. The regulator said companies should “take immediate action” or face the consequences.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Online gaming solutions provider River iGaming will focus more on B2B operations after the division performed ahead of expectations in the third quarter, but has sought advice on strategic alternatives for its B2C business after it fell short of targets.In a trading update, River said it went live with its first B2B client in September, while the provider also reported a “backlog of new clients”, with rising demand for its B2B solutions.However, River also reported a “very challenging” market for its B2C brands, and the worse-than-expected performance for this segment is set to impact its results for the second half of 2019.River said it has initiated and partially completed significant cost cutting measures for the B2C division, and is working with Akur Capital to review strategic alternatives for the segment.As a result, River said it will commit more resources on becoming a software-as-a-service driven B2B business. River said it is working on different initiatives to capitalise on opportunities in B2B, with spending to continue as planned within the segment.The move comes after River in July completed the acquisition of the Bear Group B2C subsidiary of mobile games developer Gaming Realms in a deal worth £11.5m (€13.6m/$15.1m). That sale allowed Gaming Realms to pivot to a dedicated B2B supplier.River said that once it has merged Bear Group into its current operations, it will be able to provide its customers with a better experience. In addition, River said centralising operations will create a leaner cost structure and optimise overall performance.In Q3, River also completed the acquisition of Gaming Realms’ igaming platform, which it will continue to develop and enhance as it targets new B2B clients.Meanwhile, River also highlighted the ongoing development of its Mediafusion marketing platform, with the build to be completed before the end of the year. River said the platform will help drive additional revenue.In terms of overall financial performance in the third quarter, proforma revenue for the third quarter amounted to €3.8m. Direct costs for the period amounted to €2.2m, meaning River ended the quarter with a gross profit of £1.6m.However, River also incurred various other costs, including operating costs worth €797,257 in Q3. Personnel costs stood at €1.3m, marketing costs amounted to €869,833 and depreciation and amortisation expenses totalled €42,007. This meant River was left with an operating loss of €1.4m for the period.For the year-to-date, proforma revenue stood at €9.2m and after direct costs of €4.4m, gross profit was €4.8m. Expenses related to operating, marketing and personnel, as well as depreciation and amortisation, meant an operating loss of €4.0m for the nine months to 30 September.center_img Topics: Finance Strategy River iGaming to ramp up B2B focus amid B2C struggles Tags: Online Gambling Email Addresslast_img read more
