RBC will refinance TCI UK Bail Out loan

first_img RBC Team off to Grand Turk with EZ Pay Related Items:royal bank of canada, uk tci bail out Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 06 Jan 2015 – Royal Bank of Canada, RBC is the bank the Government will go with to refinance that UK-backed bail-out loan of 2009. The Loan Refinancing Ordinance passed on December 17th and took effect the next day. The new law lays out the who, the how, the how much and the how long among other things of the bridge loan refinancing which will do away with the UK guaranteed loan of $170 million dollars. It is outlined in the ordinance that the loan with RBC cannot exceed $28 million dollars, must be repaid at the end of three and a half years, at a rate initially of 1.2% and that it will be repaid in fourteen equal installments of two million dollars every ninety days. It is explained that in order to keep that borrowing rate, the Turks and Caicos will have to maintain a BBB+ rating for at least the duration of the loan; if we lose ground there, it will cause a hike in the borrowing rate. This also means that if the TCI secures a better credit rating, then the rate of the loan will decrease. Included in that ordinance is that the TCI can repay the RBC Loan early without penalty and that the first payment would be due ninety days after disbursement of the money.

ELLE Launches Social Commerce On Facebook

first_imgELLE already has e-commerce relationships with Rue LaLa and HMS. O’Malley says that for now the actual e-commerce revenues for the media company are “small but growing.” With every experiment like this, however, the company learns more about how to leverage its editorial authority in moving people to buy as well as the kinds of things people will and won’t be likely to purchase on the Web.The next iteration of the S-commerce Trend Guide will focus on beauty to synchronize with the summer months and the heightened concern for skin and cosmetics. The fall version of the Trend Guide will be refreshed to focus on accessories and will accompany and support the re-launch of the suspended ELLE Accessories brand. We had “e-commerce” then “m-commerce” and more recently “t-commerce” (tablet commerce for those still catching up). Get ready to add “S-Commerce” to the endless digital lexicon. Hearst Digital Media has given us “social commerce” this week via a new feature at ELLE magazine’s Facebook page. The magazine is curating a series of products featured in a pop-up “Trend Report” on its fan page that links directly to the purchase pages for a range of retailers and brands. This story first appears on FOLIO: sister site, minonline. Although this is an experiment in “S-commerce” ELLE svp, publisher and chief revenue officer Kevin O’Malley tells minonline that the first version of the model actually doesn’t involve revenue. “In this deal there is no rev share,” he says. Although the buy buttons deep-link directly to the respective item’s sell page at the vendor, ELLE deliberately planned the first version to run without affiliate revenue sharing. “No one really knows if Facebook is a platform for transactional commerce,” O’Malley explains. “In iteration 1.0 we didn’t want to do a rev share and we said this to all participating brands.” It is a learning experience for everyone. ELLE wants to offer consumers the ability to follow inspiration to making the buy, but it is unclear yet whether consumers’ social network is the place readers want to shop.But O’Malley emphasizes that this Trend Guide program was designed to profit the ELLE brand and its partners regardless of sales. The custom Love, Want and Own gestures put the ELLE brand and the partner’s item on the reader’s wall with a link for all their friends to see and buy it. “The value proposition for us is that even if we don’t make a sale, this becomes like a shopping widget that goes out on her wall where friends can see it.” ELLE is adding to the Facebook experience by crafting icons and sentiments that are more nuanced than the somewhat blunt instrument of a “Like.” The Trend Guide is a Facebook tab that identifies six trends of the season: Flower Girl, Sea World, Sporting Goods, Portrait of a Lady, Showgirls and Wanderlust. Each trend opens up a gallery of related goods. Users can follow an ELLE “Lexicon” of tags or what ELLE calls “custom gestures” that let them “Love” an item, add it to their “Want” list or just declare on the social net that they already Own it. These gestures and related icons are posted as a “Shoppable Story” to one’s timeline, newsfeed or ticker. Or you can just tap the Buy! button to get kicked over to the partner’s order page.Affiliates in the program include Gucci, Bebe, AG Jeans, Nine West, Tommy Hilfiger and many others. The new functionality on ELLE’s Facebook page will be promoted via email, site and a Facebook ad campaign. Hearst partnered with 8thBridge, whose platform enables integration of transactions within the Facebook network.last_img read more

From jobs to economy Whats on next governments bucket list

first_imgA supporter of ruling Bharatiya Janata Party waves the party flag during an election campaign rally being addressed by India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.ReutersExit polls after the end of India’s general election on Sunday showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies retaining power with an overwhelming majority.The Hindu nationalist leader will need to tackle a host of issues ranging from unemployment to weak economic growth:JOBSCreating work for an estimated 1.2 million young people entering the market each month will be a key challenge. Economists say the next prime minister will need to encourage businesses to step up investment to create job opportunities.Unemployment rose to 7.6% in April, the highest since October 2016, and up from 6.71% in March, data from private think-tank the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy showed.An official survey that was withheld by the government showed India’s unemployment rate rose to 6.1%, the highest level in at least 45 years, in 2017/18, the Business Standard newspaper reported in January.ECONOMYEconomic growth, which hit a five-quarter low of 6.6% in October-December, appears to be slowing further. Car and motorbike sales have tumbled and industrial output contracted for the first time in nearly two years in March. Rural demand and manufacturing growth have also weakened.Economists have also questioned the quality of the official economic data, saying the on-the-ground situation is far bleaker.The new government will have limited options to boost the economy given the prevalent revenue constraints – it may need to rework its expenditure plans and deploy more funds to schemes that can help boost weak consumption in rural areas.The government will also need support through rate cuts and liquidity measures from the Reserve Bank of India to help bring down the cost of funds for banks and make loans cheaper for consumers.TRADEIndia’s trade relationship with major partners, including the United States and China, remains on a shaky footing.US President Donald Trump’s administration has called out India on its high tariffs, price caps on imported US medical devices and rules around e-commerce trade.Indian government officials say they fear Trump’s administration will soon end preferential trade treatment for India, which allows duty-free entry for up to $5.6 billion worth of its exports to the United States.Adding to India’s troubles is the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China, which is likely to benefit countries such as Japan and South Korea. India remains vulnerable to the dumping of cheap Chinese imports.PAKISTANNational security issues and relations with arch-rival Pakistan will be high on the agenda. The tension between the nuclear-armed neighbours has been high after Modi this year sent warplanes into Pakistan to avenge the killing of 40 Indian police officers in a militant attack which was claimed by a Pakistan-based group.In recent weeks, Pakistani leaders have suggested that they are tired of conflict, opposed to extremism and open to peace talks with India, but those offers have been met with scepticism.India is steadfast in its demand that Islamabad stops its support for militant groups, particularly those operating in the disputed Kashmir region, and has said it isn’t open to talks until then.RELIGIONAllies of Modi’s BJP will likely renew their controversial demand to build a Hindu temple on the ruins of a 16th-century mosque in the northern town of Ayodhya.A violent Hindu mob destroyed the mosque in Ayodhya in 1992, triggering riots that killed about 2,000 people in one of the worst episodes of sectarian violence since independence from colonial rule in 1947.India’s Supreme Court has set up a panel to arbitrate the decades-long dispute.Modi could also end the special constitutional status given to India’s only Muslim-majority state, Jammu and Kashmir, as the BJP believes the status prevents outsiders from buying property there and hinders its integration with the rest of India.last_img read more
