Sees rapid growth in the use of digital platforms in the EU’s banking and payments sector and identifies steps to enhance the monitoring of market developments
21 September 2021
The European Banking Authority (EBA) published a Report on the platformisation of the EU banking and payments sector. The EBA identifies a rapid growth in the use of digital platforms to ‘bridge’ customers and financial institutions, a trend expected to accelerate in line with the wider trend toward the digitisation of the EU financial sector. Platformisation presents a range of potential opportunities for both EU customers and financial institutions. However, new forms of financial, operational, and reputational interdependencies are emerging and the EBA identifies steps to strengthen supervisory capacity to monitor market developments. For more information please press

24 September 2021

ECB Is Lonelier Than Ever After a Hawkish Turn Led by Fed
23 September 2021
"With central banks from Washington to London this week signaling more alarm over faster inflation, the ultra-stimulative path of the euro zone and some of its neighbors appears lonelier than ever. A collective move to look beyond the pandemic slump and toward the risk rising of accelerating prices emerged with a warning from the U.S. Federal Reserve that it may taper bond-buying soon, the prospect of higher interest rates as early as this year from the Bank of England and at least five other hikes from central banks around the globe."

24 September 2021
"U.S. oil refiners hunting to replace crude lost after a storm hit the U.S. Gulf of Mexico last month have been turning to Iraqi and Canadian oil, while Asian buyers have been pursuing Middle Eastern and Russian grades, analysts and traders said. Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L), the largest producer in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, this week said damage from Hurricane Ida to an offshore transfer facility will limit Mars sour crude supplies into early next year. The grade is used heavily by U.S. Gulf refiners and companies in South Korea and China, the top two export destinations for Mars." For more information please press 
Bitcoin’s Decline Could Lead to a Test of Major Support

23 September 2021
"Wall Street-esque regulation is coming to the cryptocurrency industry, so it pays to play nice. That’s the message from Marco Santori, chief legal officer of the Kraken Digital Asset Exchange.  While Coinbase head Brian Armstrong -- and Santori’s boss, Kraken founder and chief executive Jesse Powell -- have taken an adversarial tone toward agencies such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, it’s clear that more stringent regulation is in the offing, Santori said. “You’re just living in a fantasy world if you don’t believe that this industry is going to face heavier, more Wall Street-like regulation from governments in the U.S. and abroad, and Kraken has simply been practical about that future,” Santori said on Bloomberg’s “QuickTake Stock” broadcast Thursday." For more information please press
