James Moore: Chairman of the challenger bank needs to be challenged

Outlook One of the challenger banks that will provide some of the glut of banking shares coming to market is Shawbrook, which has announced its intention to float along with its chairman’s plans to retire when the job is done. It’s the second part of the story that should make you angry. I’ve written before about the pot of gold that Sir George Mathewson will make from the float, but it bears repeating because it encapsulates much that is still badly wrong with the banking industry and with the City.

HSBC has revealed that 209 of its top staff were paid at least £1m
London Stock Exchange chief executive Xavier Rolet wants the retail part of future flotations to be distributed through the network of stockbrokers that deal with the public

James Moore: Some welcome brakes applied to George Osborne's pension freedom

Outlook Are you one of the rapidly diminishing band of people with a “defined benefit” (DB) company pension that guarantees you a percentage of your final salary when you retire? Fancy transferring out of it so you can take advantage of the Chancellor’s pension freedom reforms and take a big lump of cash instead? Well you’re out of luck. The Financial Conduct Authority, fearing a mass of “irrational transfers” out of DB schemes, has decided that it will let you take such a step only if you receive regulated financial advice.

James Moore: What have the European courts ever done for us?

Outlook What’s this, a victory for George Osborne in Europe? Sacré Bleu!

Despite ITV as a company enduring an overall decline of 5 per cent in its audience share in 2014, it managed to increase advertising revenues by 6 per cent.

James Moore: ITV is thriving in a digital world, but content must remain king

The performance of ITV1 was the main reason for the decline. But advertisers appear willing to pay more for less.

Barclays included £449m of “litigation and conduct” issues in its adjusted results, but it excluded £2.35bn.
