Bank of England governor Mark Carney has warned the current structure of the eurozone puts it in an "odd position". Mr Carney said sharing a currency without also sharing decisions on taxes and spending did not work. "For complete solutions to current and potential future problems the sharing of fiscal risks is required," he told an audience in Dublin, Ireland. More»

Deutsche Bank says it expects operating cost cuts to continue in 2015 as fines loom. Its chief financial officer, Stefan Krause said: "We should see a decrease in the underlying cost base coming." Regulatory charges - finance people prefer that term to fines and being sued - are expected to increase in some areas, he said. "We have litigation settlements of the bank as well as other banks (and that) influences the operational risk map and that one is for sure going to increase," he added. "We regretfully can't give you a better outlook." Source: BBC News More»

The Russian government is to spend at least 2.34 trillion roubles ($35bn, £23bn) to try to stave off an economic crisis, following a collapse in oil prices and the value of the rouble. The country has also been subject to economic sanctions by the West over its involvement in the crisis in Ukraine. More»

The Swiss franc fell on Tuesday after a senior official at the Swiss National Bank was quoted as saying the central bank was still prepared to intervene to keep the currency relatively weak. The euro jumped to over 1.03 against the franc, from 1.0150 in early European trading. The central bank accepted that the dropping of the cap on the franc against the euro represented a tightening of policy, but it remains ready to intervene in the currency market, SNB Vice President Jean-Pierre Danthine told Swiss newspaper TagesAnzeiger in an interview. He added that the central bank had no choice but to abandon its 3 1/2-year-old cap, as the common currency was no longer a suitable reference for the franc. "My six to 12-month view is still for around 1.05 francs to the euro. I really doubt that the SNB will just be comfortable seeing the currency around or below parity for a sustained period of time," said Jane Foley, an analyst at Rabobank. The Swiss central bank's move to scrap the franc cap came as upward pressure on the currency had forced it to intervene increasingly in the currency markets, and the volume of interventions could have reached 100 billion francs ($166.26 billion) in January, Mr. Danthine was quoted as saying. A European Central Bank bond-buying program could swamp the currency markets with euro liquidity, and the "natural runoff for this liquidity would have been into the franc," he said. Mr. Danthine refuted suggestions the SNB's move represented a currency war, and said while the ECB's decision to introduce quantitative easing was a monetary policy decision, it would have side-effects for other currency regions. "Switzerland is affected by quantitative easing in Europe," he said. Asked whether the SNB should consider a new currency strategy, Mr. Danthine said Singapore's linking of its currency to a trade-weighted basket of currencies deserved closer attention. "Other small and open economies like Sweden and Norway have managed well over the years with flexible exchange rates," he said. As far as the SNB's timing of its exit from the franc cap was concerned, Mr. Danthine said the central bank had no choice as "forward guidance" wasn't possible. Mr. Danthine had told Swiss television three days before the scrapping of the cap that it remained a cornerstone of its monetary policy. "Prior to my interview there had been press speculation about an exit from the franc cap, which on Monday had led to flows into the franc. If I had canceled the interview or raised doubts about the cap, this would have intensified flows enormously," he said. The SNB's currency reserves have swelled to almost 500 billion francs since the minimum exchange rate was imposed in September 2011. The impact of the exit from the franc cap on the Alpine country's economy isn't something for which the SNB is responsible, but in general productivity will need to be increased, Mr. Danthine said. "Economically things aren't that bad. The U.S. is getting stronger, lower oil prices should provide support and the quantitative easing in Europe could have positive effects," Mr. Danthine said. In addition to scrapping the franc cap, the SNB also raised the fees it will charge banks to deposit funds with the central bank, although Mr. Danthine said it is difficult to say whether the SNB's negative rate of -0.75% can be lowered further.

The Arab Investment Bank (AIB) has signed today its first financing contract with Egypt’s Social Fund for Development (SFD). The contract is at value of 100 million Egyptian pounds (US$13.4 million), designed to finance small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as SFD’s debt account activity. Debit account is the short-term facilities "overdrafts" offer clients a credit ceiling (amounts) corresponding to the short-term financial requirements of their enterprises. Following the signing ceremony, Nevine Gamea - Head of SFD's Central Sector for Small Enterprise Finance – said the contract is the first to be signed between AIB and the fund. Gamea further stated that SFD’s total financing for small projects had reached 2 billion pounds by the end of 2014, to be beyond the 2014 target of 1.630 billion pounds. This comes in the light of SFD’s expansions into financing several banks and social societies, she noted. More»
