Tunisia-IMF: they talk, without breaking off, while waiting for the next government 2020/02/17 15:58:54 African Manager
We were talking yesterday about this economically suicidal and self-destructive tendency of a part of the Tunisian elite that likes to scare itself. This is how part of the local press likes to repeat that everything is going badly in the country, and therefore allows itself to peddle what certain politicians tell it, that the main donors, the IMF and the World Bank, have stopped discussions with Tunisia, and for the IMF in particular, would refuse to negotiate with Minister of Finance Ridha Chalghoum. What is the real situation? Let us recall, first of all, that the Governor of the BCT, Marouane El Abassi, had officially told the ARP that “discussions between Tunisia and the IMF (International Monetary Fund) officials are continuing in order to bring the points of view closer together and prepare favorable conditions for the next government in order to reach the sixth review (7th tranche) of the arrangement the Extended Credit Facility” (EFF). In fact, as he said, and even if the meetings are informal with IMF representatives who are kept silent unless expressly authorized by the board of an institution that is as quiet as a grave, contacts have never been interrupted.
Milking the system? Investigating fraud & fund misuse down on the farm 2020/02/17 14:05:07 FRANCE 24
Nearly 40 percent of the EU's budget ends up in farms, through the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), which funds tens of billions of euros in subsidies. But now, the Commission is proposing new strategies to make farming more sustainable as part of its Green New Deal. Meanwhile, budget cuts are looming large. What's more, a recent New York Times investigation raised questions about where the money is ending up – the paper providing evidence that corrupt government officials in several member states are or have been misusing subsidies to enrich their friends, families and even themselves.

TARP-like government fund likely in Budget for NBFC relief 2020/02/01 03:47:55 The Economic Times India
NEW DELHI: The government is likely to unveil, in the Union Budget 2020, a Troubled Assets Relief Programme (TARP) similar to what the US initiated during the financial crisis in 2008.Under the proposed scheme, the troubled or stressed assets of the non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) will be bought by a government fund to revive the sector.A high-level review meeting on this was held on Monday, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for a final decision on the matter.The US government had initiated the TARP at the height of the Wall Street financial crisis of 2008.The US Treasury Department created the TARP fund to stabilise the financial system and restore economic growth. TARP was rolled out to accomplish targets by purchasing troubled companies' assets and stock.September 2008 saw a worldwide freeze as global credit markets came to a near standstill as several major financial institutions, such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and American International Group (AIG), experienced severe financial stress and others, like Lehman Brothers went bankrupt due to the effects of the sub-prime mortgage crisis that had begun the previous year.

Kip ETF 20: The Best Cheap ETFs You Can Buy 2020/01/31 19:07:07 Kiplinger Washington Editors
Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are growing at an astronomical rate. U.S. assets are closing in on $4.25 trillion. The ETF share of total assets at investment firms has more than doubled to 17% from 8% at the start of the decade, while mutual funds have lost market share. The only problem with this explosive growth? The industry now boasts thousands of funds, making it difficult to determine the very best ETFs. But investors are getting smarter about how they use ETFs in their portfolios. "After a decade of market gains, ETFs now play a unique role for investors as the foundation of a portfolio and also as vehicles that enable investors to be nimble," says Kari Droller, who oversees third-party mutual funds and ETFs at Charles Schwab. We try to be nimble, too. Although a thorough review of the Kiplinger ETF 20 happens only once a year, we watch each fund closely. As you'll see below, we've noted where a couple of funds merit more scrutiny as interest rates stay steady and low. But for now, we're holding fast to our 20.
Meet The Ex-Professional Tennis Player Whose Hedge Fund Soared 124% In 2019 2020/01/31 19:00:06 Zero Hedge
Meet The Ex-Professional Tennis Player Whose Hedge Fund Soared 124% In 2019 SoftBank was the butt of many jokes in 2019. in fact, it's likely the bank will remain the butt of many jokes heading into the new year. But despite the bank's well known embarrassing failures during 2019, namely the botched IPO of WeWork, the bank did have one thing going for it this year. One of its executives, Marcelo Claure, backed a $160 million hedge fund that surged 124% last year, according to Bloomberg . The fund smoked the S&P index and stood out at one of the lone beacons of success related to anything having to do with SoftBank. DPM started in 2017 with personal backing from Claure, who had a stake in at least 20% of the firm. The founder of the firm, Pedro Escudero, is a former pro tennis player who has worked on several shops across Wall Street. Most recently, he worked in sales and marketing for Latin America on behalf of J.P. Morgan. In keeping with the SoftBank ethos, the fund says it invests in companies that are "unique species" and have adapted their price models to survive intense competition.
