The news will fuel speculation the current Resolution is close to making its final acquisition, likely to be an insurer with an asset management arm.John Tiner, chief executive of Resolution, said: “[We have] continued to study market opportunities and talk to market participants and potential vendors in other financial services sectors and geographies.”Shares in Resolution jumped 3.4 per cent to 254.3p yesterday as the company said strong performance from its Friends Provident unit helped turn a pre-tax operating loss of £7m last year into a profit of £203m. Earnings before tax came in at £203m. Resolution declared a dividend of 5.5p per share.The numbers did not factor in Resolution’s £2.8bn purchase of the UK life assurance and savings part of Axa, the French giant, which is due to complete shortly.Raghu Hariharan at Citigroup said the consensus beat was partly down to low visibility but added: “Clearly the first half business performance has been strong.” Share Tuesday 17 August 2010 8:06 pm Tags: NULL whatsapp Cowdery eyes third project as profits leap whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Spread betting and contracts for difference (CFD) provider IG Group took in revenue of £649.2m (€712.5m/$825.7m) in the full year ended 31 May, up 36% year-on-year.Of its £649.2m in net trading revenue, the vast majority, £617.2m, up 37% year-on-year, came on over-the-counter leveraged trading, which includes contracts for difference and spread betting.Breaking these over-the-counter leveraged trades down further, £287.2m was for indices, up 34%, £113.3m came on currency exchange, up 42%, £88.6m came on equities, up 3%.Some £86.2m was for commodities, up 106% thanks largely to high volatility in oil markets, while a further £24.4m of over-the-counter leveraged trades were for options, up 20%, and £17.5m for cryptocurrencies, up 72%.A further £18.4m came on exchange-traded derivatives while stock trading and investments made up £13.7m, up 57%.This growth in revenue came largely thanks to a 34% growth in customers, to 239,600.The majority of revenue, £328.5m, came from countries inside the European Securities and Market Authority’s jurisdiction, which includes the EU as well as the UK.After making interest of £5.0m on client money and £1.4m in other income but paying £7.4m in betting duty, IG Group made net operating income of £648.2m.The business paid operating costs of £352.9m, up 24%. The largest cost was fixed employee remuneration, which grew 9% to £116.4m as employee headcount rose 7% to 1,921. Meanwhile variable remuneration such as bonuses grew 79% to £44.3m.Advertising and marketing costs rose by 20% to £61.8m, premises expenses fell 45% to £7.3m, regulatory fees jumped 88% to £6.3m and bad debt expenses increased by more than 500% to £11.0m.Other structural costs increased by 21% to £79.7m and depreciation and amortisation costs grew by 48% to £25.6m.After an additional £700,000 gain through the sale of “six minor entities”, IG Group was left with an operating profit of £296.0m, up 53%. The business made a £100,000 net financial loss, resulting in a pre-tax profit of £295.5m, up 52%.After paying £55.5m in tax, up 54%, IG Group’s profits came to £240.4m, a 52% year-on-year increase.“It’s been a successful first year in our three-year growth strategy to become a more sustainable, diversified, and global business,” IG Group chief executive June Felix said. “We concluded FY20 well on track to deliver on our medium-term targets and are confident in achieving the goals we’ve set.“I’m delighted with the tangible progress we’ve made, the resilience we’ve shown as a company, and the record results we’ve delivered.”Most of IG Group’s growth came thanks to an “exceptional” Q4, where extremely high market volatility and increased client activity becuae of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic helped the business make £259.5m in revenue, up 120% year-on-year. Active clients grew 56% to 199,300, thanks to 51,200 new customers, while average revenue per customer grew 31% year-on-year.“While group revenue was significantly boosted by the exceptional client activity in Q4, we do not expect this level of activity to be sustained as we anticipate market volatility returning to more normalised levels in the course of FY21,” IG Group said. “However, the group anticipates some ongoing benefit from the record number of new active clients acquired in Q4.“While preliminary indications are that these clients are of a similar profile to previous new client cohorts, it is too early to conclude how they will trade over time.”Last month, the group announced it expected to post higher-than-expected year-on-year revenue growth for its 2020 financial year, due to elevated financial market volatility and high levels of client trading activity in Q4.In May, the business named Charlie Rozes as its new chief financial officer. Rozes joined IG Group on 1 June replacing Paul Mainwaring, who in January announced his intention to retire. Mainwaring had agreed to remain in his position until the operator appointed a replacement. 23rd July 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “Exceptional” Q4 helps drive IG Group to full-year revenue growth
Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Cliff D’Arcy | Tuesday, 15th December, 2020 Views expressed in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address For investors in almost everything except FTSE 100 shares, it’s been a great year. Thanks to massive support from central banks, asset prices have climbed in a liquidity-driven rally. But this support has distorted asset prices, as well as throwing fundamentals out the window. Should the US Federal Reserve keep propping up assets indefinitely, blowing a bubble on a scale last seen in the dotcom boom? Or will financial gravity finally assert itself, collapsing the economic disconnect between asset prices and the real economy? And which assets will be winners in 2021’s recovery? For me, it has to be FTSE 100’s cheap shares.The year (almost) everything boomedFor portfolios with lots of alternative assets and few UK shares, 2020 has been awesome. US stocks lead the way, with the S&P 500 rising 12.9% and the tech-focused Nasdaq 100 doing even better, skyrocketing 42.7% in 2020. I started investing in the 1980s, so I remember well the dotcom boom peaking in 2000. For me, US mega-techs are firmly in bubble territory again today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Alas, the FTSE 100 is the sick man of global stock markets, down 13.7% in 2020 (and 26 percentage points behind the S&P 500). This suggests that cheap UK shares could be due a resurgence in 2021.It’s no real surprise that US stocks have outperformed other markets. As billionaire investment guru Warren Buffett once remarked, “Never bet against America”. But the prices of government and corporate bonds have also surged in 2020, driven up by near-zero or negative interest rates. Gold has had a great year. Likewise, cryptocurrency Bitcoin has nearly tripled in value in 12 months. Even UK house prices have been driven up this year, despite two lengthy lockdowns. How come cheap UK shares missed this boom?TINA says buy cheap sharesWhile I worry about monetary policy blowing bubbles, I expect a broad-based economic rebound in 2021. But higher corporate earnings can’t bridge the massive gulf between asset prices and the real economy. With 2020 seeing record global debt issuance, this huge burden will weigh heavily on companies. And there’s no doubt rising bond yields or interest rates could kill off many zombie businesses. Furthermore, with bond yields at record lows or providing negative returns, I think these IOUs are no longer worth owning.For me, TINA — There Is No Alternative — tells me that only one asset class is worth buying today. It’s the ‘last man standing’ in this global bubble — and the only one with attractive fundamentals that are not divorced from reality. In my view, cheap shares — especially unloved, unwanted, and undervalued FTSE 100 heavyweights — will be the clear winners over the coming decade. Hence, as a value investor, my focus is on finding quality companies with strong balance sheets, solid earnings and decent/rising dividends.Finally, another investing legend, Jeremy Grantham of GMO, recently remarked, “The one reality you can never change is that a higher-priced asset will always produce a lower return than a lower-priced asset. You can’t have your cake and eat it. You can enjoy it now, or you can enjoy it steadily in the distant future, but not both. And the price we will pay for having this market go higher and higher is a lower and lower 10-year return from the peak.” I absolutely agree, hence my high hopes for the FTSE 100’s cheap stocks in the 2020s!

The Motley Fool UK has recommended Burberry.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Uncomfortably high inflation is a global phenomenon today, driven by high commodity prices and reopening demand. But it has only just shown up in the UK. According to numbers released today, annual inflation touched 2.1% in May. This had me sit up and take note, for three reasons. One, inflation is now above the Bank of England’s target rate of 2%. If it persists, the BoE could start increasing interest rates. This could put economic recovery in danger. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Two, the number exceeds economists’ expectations. This means that inflation may well throw up ugly surprises in the coming months too. Three, inflation has sharply increased compared to April’s levels of 1.5%, which shows the kind of increases possible.Investing in times of inflationNone of these risks may materialise. A number of economists believe that high inflation is transitory. But there are those who do not. Whatever I believe as an economist, however, I don’t think it hurts me to buy FTSE 100 stocks that are possibly inflation proof and also double up as either growth or income stocks or both. I think there are two broad categories of FTSE 100 stocks that will remain unaffected by inflation. The first is companies whose products’ prices are already rising. In other words, they are gaining from inflation. The second is companies that can easily pass on these price increases. FTSE 100 oil stocks to the rescueIn the first category are commodity stocks. Prices of commodities like oils and metals have been on the rise. As economic activity amps up through this year, it is possible they will rise further. Just today, there is a fresh report that oil prices could rise to $100 a barrel. As an investor in the two big FTSE 100 oil companies BP and Royal Dutch Shell, I follow their developments closely. And their first quarter results were proof of how oil price increases can turn their fortunes around. Both companies have paid generous dividends in the past and I think they will continue to pass on their financial good fortune to investors in the future. Besides this, their performance should also add to increases in their share prices. They have not been great growth stocks in the past, but I reckon that could change now. High-end retailers can pass on pricesIn the second category is FTSE 100 luxury stock Burberry, which I also own. Its demand can be impacted by a slowing economy but less so by the level of inflation we have seen so far. I reckon it can pass on price increases more easily to consumers than retailers in lower price brackets. Also, an improved economy will increase demand for its products. It has already expressed optimism about this year, which is unlikely to be dented by inflationary concerns. The only downside I see here is that Burberry’s share has already run up quite a bit. This means it may grow slowly from here, but I am prepared to hold it for the long term. See all posts by Manika Premsingh Image source: Getty Images.

NewsHealthHospital Group chief executive is reappointed for another five yearsBy Staff Reporter – September 11, 2019 1294 Previous articleMan arrested in Limerick City murder caseNext articleLimerick Post Show | Fidget Feet Present Bingo Wings Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Health Minister Simon Harris with UL Hospitals Group chief executive Professor Colette Cowan.Photo: Brian Arthur.PROFESSOR Colette Cowan has been re-appointed for another five years as chief executive of the University of Limerick Hospitals Group which incorporates University Hospital Limerick, University Maternity Hospital Limerick, Croom, Ennis, Nenagh and St John’s hospitals.Since taking on the role in 2014, she has overseen a budget increase from €267 million to €351 million and a workforce rise from 3,000 to 4,200.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Referring to the challenge of leading the thousands of hospital staff in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary over the next five years, Prof Cowan said the Group was looking forward to the development of the six regions announced by Health Minister Simon Harris as a key driver in delivering the Slaintecare health reforms.“The creation of integrated health regions present great challenges and great opportunities that we must all strive to meet as the promise of Slaintecare is to deliver truly transformative change for the people of the MidWest and the country at large.She said that while Slaintecare envisaged a move away from Ireland’s hospital-centric model to delivering more care in primary and community settings, the UL Hospitals Group would be busier than ever over the next five years, advancing its strategic objectives and developing more specialist services.“We were only just emerging from a deep recession when I was appointed as chief executive in 2014. The MidWest had been more seriously affected than other regions and the difficulties in the public finances had a serious adverse impact on the delivery of health services.“Over the last five years, however, UL Hospitals Group has delivered more care to more patients at a rate greater than the population increase in general.“For example, the number of attendances at our Emergency Department/Injury Units increased from 85,816 to 103,063 over the last five years and the number in-centre dialysis treatments in UHL grew from 10,412 to 17,232.“In spite of the challenging environment, the Group continues to increase its clinical activity, grow its workforce, enhance its academic profile and achieve crucial targets in quality and patient safety,”“We are also keenly aware that our capacity to meet demand is lacking in key areas and this is most manifest in the long waits for a bed faced by admitted patients and in growing outpatient waiting lists. Patient experience in these areas has been poor for many and I remain absolutely committed to improving this.” Vicky calls for right to die with dignity Advertisement Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Facebook “Significant capital projects delivered over the last five years include the new Emergency Department, Leben Building (CF, breast, stroke and dermatology services), Dialysis Unit, Clinical Education and Research Centre at UHL; improved end-of-life care facilities in Ennis Hospital and University Maternity Hospital Limerick and the new ward block and Cataract Theatre at Nenagh Hospital.“More specialist clinics than ever before are being led in Ennis and Nenagh hospitals by consultants and an increasing number of advanced nurse and midwifery practitioners. And UL Hospitals Group was delighted to form its first Patient Council to give patients an active voice in service planning and delivery.“Over the last five years, UL Hospitals Group has consistently met or exceeded the national targets for average length of stay, day of surgery adUniversitymissions and readmission rates. Key quality indicators have shown excellent results in perinatal care and for in-hospital mortality rates for heart attack and stroke,” Prof Cowen concluded.
