The National Investment Bank is studying to invest in a holding company for managing technological zones, which will be established by the Egyptian ICT Ministry. The Egyptian Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Ministry is planning to establish a holding company designated for managing technological zones, with an estimated paid-up capital of 3.5 billion Egyptian pounds (US$489.5 million). Speaking to Amwal Al Ghad on Tuesday, Momtaz al-Saeed – the ex-finance minister and board member at NIB – said the ICT ministry offered the bank to invest in the new holding company’s capital. NIB is still studying the ministry’s offer as well as the economic feasibility of investing in the new company before making any decision and determining the bank’s stake, al-Saeed noted. On Monday, a source from ICT Ministry told Amwal Al Ghad that the Ministry alongside Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) and the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) plan to launch a holding company to manage seven new technological zones. The source expected that the new company will start its activities before the end of the current year. The seven new technological zones will be built through the PPP system, in Technology Valley of Ismailia, Borg Al-Arab, Al-Sadat City, Damietta, Sohag, 10th of Ramadan area, and Aswan. More»

Standard Chartered PLC (STAN.LN) on Tuesday said its operating profit fell 16% in the third quarter, partly because of higher impairment losses. The emerging markets-focused bank said group operating profit for the three months ended Sept. 30 fell to $1.53 billion from $1.83 billion the same period a year earlier. Its third-quarter operating income rose to $4.51 billion from $4.47 billion. Total impairment in third quarter was $539 million, up from $289 million a year earlier, the bank said in a statement. The bank said the increase in loan impairment was related to a small number of accounts, primarily in the Corporate and Institutional Clients segment, some of which have been affected by weak commodity markets. "We remain watchful in India, in China and of commodity exposures more broadly, where we have continued to tighten our underwriting criteria and reduce our exposures," the lender said. Standard Chartered said it expects second-half underlying profit to be lower than a year earlier, partly due a higher U.K. bank levy, regulatory and restructuring costs. More»

Sweden's central bank cut its main interest rate to zero Tuesday, in a bid to boost inflation which has once again fallen below expectations. The Riksbank lowered its main repurchase agreement rate to zero from a previous level of 0.25%, which was a slightly bigger reduction than expected. Analysts asked by the Wall Street Journal had forecast a cut to 0.05%. The Riksbank last cut borrowing costs in July in an effort to lift an inflation rate that has been stuck around zero for most of this year, well below the 2% target set for the central bank by lawmakers.

Bank lending to China's property sector continued to grow at a slower pace in the third quarter of the year as the country's home market has cooled considerably since the beginning of this year. Outstanding loans made by Chinese banks to the property sector totaled 16.74 trillion yuan ($2.7 trillion) at the end of September, up 18.2% from a year earlier, the People's Bank of China said Tuesday. The growth was 1 percentage point lower than that of a quarter earlier, the central bank said. The slower growth in loans to the property sector reflects uncertainties in China's flagging home market, which poses one of the biggest risks to the world's second largest economy. Property developers have been cutting home prices to attract buyers amid rising inventory levels in many cities. The average price of new homes declined 1.1% in September from a year earlier, compared with a 0.5% gain in August, official data showed. Outstanding loans for property development totaled 4.18 trillion yuan at the end of third quarter, up 22% from a year earlier. The growth rate was 1.7 percentage points lower than that of the second-quarter, said the central bank. Outstanding mortgage loans to individuals rose 17.5% from a year earlier to 11.12 trillion yuan at the end of third quarter, said the central bank. China's central bank loosened mortgage restrictions at the end of September, allowing some existing homeowners to enjoy preferential lending rates and terms extended to first-time buyers. Analysts predicted that the move will boost mortgage loans in months ahead. More»
