Barnier Says a Deal Difficult, Still Possible: Brexit Update

Barnier Says a Deal Difficult, Still Possible: Brexit Update(Bloomberg) -- Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal was hanging in the balance, after the prime minister of Finland, which currently holds the presidency of the European Union, said an agreement won’t be ready before a summit of leaders that starts on Thursday.“I think there is no time in a practical way and in a legal base to reach an agreement before the Council meeting,” Antti Rinne, the Finnish premier, said.With 16 days before the U.K. is due to leave the EU, Johnson repeatedly pledged to “get Brexit done,” as he spoke in Parliament on Monday following a Queen’s Speech that laid the ground for a general election.Key developments:A hard Brexit remains a tail risk which is simply too big to ignore.Johnson still needs to persuade his Northern Irish alliesEU chief Brexit negotiator is on Tuesday briefing European affairs ministersDutch Minister Says Proposal Needs More Work (8:56 a.m.) The foreign minister from the Netherlands told reporters that the U.K. offer indicates progress, but more work needs to be done. “The U.K. proposal contains some steps forward but doesn’t yet guarantee that the single market will be protected,” Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok told reporters in Luxembourg. “There have been intensive talks and they’re still going on, but let’s use the remaining time until Oct. 31.”Pound Gains After Barnier Comments (8:50 a.m.)The pound jumped on Barnier’s comments, rising as much as 0.7% to $1.2698, close to the three-month high touched last week after leaders said they could see a “pathway” to a potential Brexit deal. Hedge funds and asset managers have been paring their bets on a weaker pound, according to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.Barnier Says Brexit Deal Difficult, Possible (8:35 a.m)EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said a Brexit deal is possible this week but talks remain tough. “Even if an agreement will be difficult -- more and more difficult to be frank -- it will still be possible this week,” Barnier told reporters in Luxembourg.“Reaching an agreement is still possible. Obviously, any agreement must work for everyone, the whole of the U.K. and the whole of the EU,” he said.He added that it’s high time to “turn good intentions into a legal text.”Earlier:Boris Johnson’s Brexit Deal On Knife Edge as EU Needs More TimeJohnson Has a Big Brexit Problem: His Northern Irish FriendsThe Brexit Threat to World Markets Remains Too Huge to Ignore\--With assistance from John Ainger.To contact the reporters on this story: Jonathan Stearns in Luxembourg at jstearns2@bloomberg.net;Ian Wishart in Brussels at iwishart@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ben Sills at bsills@bloomberg.net, Richard BravoFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Neil Woodford fund to be ‘wound up’ – latest news and markets reaction

Neil Woodford fund to be ‘wound up’ – latest news and markets reactionNeil Woodford to cease managing Equity Income Fund with immediate effect Pound jumps as Barnier says Brexit deal “possible” this week European stocks close in the red with the FTSE 100 down 0.46pc Wall Street ends lower ahead of a wave of key earnings reports, Asia edges up RBS sought Monzo takeover before deciding to launch standalone rival  Juliet Samuel: Trump is desperate for trade war victories as election draws nearer ​   7:41AM Woodford fund ‘to be wound up’ Fallen star trader Neil Woodford Credit:  Jeff Gilbert The suspended Woodford Equity Income Fund will be closed by its administrator, according to an emailed statement on Tuesday. Following the decision to wind up the fund, founder Neil Woodford will cease to be the investment manager with immediate effect, according to Link Fund Solutions. The administrator has hired Blackrock Advisers. The fund’s administrator Link Fund Solutions hired BlackRock Advisers to prepare the portfolio for the winding down process, according to an emailed statement on Tuesday. The former star stock picker ceases to be the fund manager with immediate effect. “After careful review of the fund and its holdings we have decided not to re-open the fund and instead to wind it up,” Link wrote in a letter to investors. “We recognize that this will come as a disappointment to some investors.” The move marks the latest chapter in what’s been a dramatic reversal for the former U.K fund manager. Woodford built up a reputation by correctly calling major swings in technology, tobacco and other stocks over decades. Plagued by years of poor performance and mounting redemption requests, his fund administrator froze redemptions in the LF Woodford Equity Income Fund in June. Since the suspension, Woodford has been offloading small stakes in the fund in to a cohort of investors in a series of fire sales. 7:39AM Agenda: Markets febrile after day of wobbles Questions remains over trade relations between the US and China Yesterday, stock markets across Europe closed in the red, though what temporarily appeared to a session of steep losses improved somewhat after signals from Beijing were judged to be more favourable than had first been thought. Nonetheless, the mood was risk-off, with miners suffering in particular, while safe-haven assets such as gold and the US dollar strengthened. All eyes will now turn to whether there will be a Brexit deal for leaders to sign at Thursday's EU Summit. 5 things to start your day 1) The bailed-out Royal Bank of Scotland was forced to develop its own digital bank after the failure of an audacious attempt to buy online lender Monzo. Senior executives from the taxpayer-controlled lender approached Monzo for talks before baulking at the price tag. 2) Think Tank: three charts that give BoJo a boost for a Brexit general election. One of these is the misery index which is running at less than 6pc, less than half the level seen in the early austerity years of the decade and around the same as 2015 when the Conservatives won a shock overall majority under David Cameron.  3) Barnardo's boss:Charity shops are saving the high street, not hurting it. At Barnardo's most exclusive outlet in Marylebone, high fashion hand-me-downs are the norm - and a few wealthy donors help to deliver a healthy £200,000 annual profit. 4) The official launch of Facebook's new cryptocurrency alliance was overshadowed on Monday by the abrupt departure of Booking.com, leaving the project with just 21 of its original 28 backers. Booking Holdings, which controls 41pc of the online travel market through services including Kayak and Agoda, confirmed on Monday that it had dropped out on the very same day that it was supposed officially sign up to the project at a meeting in Geneva.  Libra Association | Members and quitters 5) The founder of Hargreaves Lansdown has accused the firm of failing in its duty to shareholders amid a row about political donations. Peter Hargreaves fell out with the investment platform last week over a planned shareholder vote on making donations to political parties. The 73-year-old billionaire made it clear he would use his 32pc stake to oppose the motion, so Hargreaves Lansdown cancelled the ballot at the last minute before its annual meeting. What happened overnight Asian stocks and Wall Street futures inched higher on Tuesday as some investors held out hope that Britain still had a chance to avoid a messy exit from the European Union at key negotiations this week. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.1%. South Korean shares rose 0.21pc, while Japan's Nikkei stock index was up 1.74pc. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index dipped 0.06pc, or 15.67 points, to 26,506.18. Capping broader gains, however, was a perceived lack of progress coming out of US-China trade negotiations. Reports of a “Phase One” trade deal between the United States and China last week had earlier cheered markets but the dearth of details around the agreement has since curbed this enthusiasm with oil prices extending declines, Chinese stocks weaker and the safe-haven yen holding gains versus dollar. The focus has now shifted to Europe where officials from Britain and the EU will meet at a make-or-break summit on Thursday and Friday that will determine whether or not Britain is headed for a so-called no-deal Brexit. U.S. stock futures rose 0.23pc on Tuesday in Asia after the S&P; 500 ended 0.14pc lower. Coming up today Hays investors have reason to be nervous heading towards today’s trading statement. The FTSE 250 recruiter’s peers PageGroup and Robert Walters both saw their share prices slip last week after unveiling disappointing results, with the same widespread pressures likely to have weighed on Hays. Like its sector rivals, Hays has seen net fee income slip as companies delay full-time hires, with Brexit a particular issue.
