World - Barclays bank ramps up foreign exchange rigging costs

Barclays on Tuesday ramped up the size of costs it expects to face over its alleged role in the rigging of foreign exchange markets, tipping the troubled lender into a loss last year.

World - UK government sells 1% stake in Lloyds bank for £500 mn

The British government has sold a 1.0-percent stake in state-rescued Lloyds Banking Group for £500 million ($769 million, 677 million euros) under plans to return it to private ownership, the Treasury said on Monday.

The government initially took a 39-percent share of Lloyds and has so far raised almost £8.0 billion selling bits of its holding.

World - Premier League clubs in record £950 mn transfer spend - report

Premier League clubs spent a record £950 million ($1.4 billion, 1.2 billion euros) combined in the 2014/15 pre-season and mid-season transfer windows, according to a report published by financial analysts Deloitte on Tuesday. Although Monday`s deadline day was relatively low key, with Premier League leaders Chelsea`s signing of Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina the headline purchase, clubs stil spent more on the final day of this particular window -- £45 million -- than they did at the climax of the January 2014 market (£35 million). Nevertheless, the total spent by clubs across the two windows has surpassed the previous highest of £760 million in the 2013/14 season and is a further example of the increased financial strength of leading English clubs, who have benefitted from increased television and other broadcast revenues.

World - Japan, China to hold first security talks in four years

Japanese and Chinese officials will hold their first security talks in four years in Tokyo later this month, Japan`s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday, the latest sign of a possible improvement in ties strained by a territorial dispute. Relations between the world`s second- and third-largest economies have been damaged by conflicting claims to a group of tiny East China Sea islands and the legacy of Japan`s wartime occupation of its larger Asian neighbor. Patrol ships and fighter jets from both countries have shadowed each other regularly near the uninhabited islands that are controlled by Japan, prompting fears that an accidental collision could escalate into conflict. The security meeting, to be held on March 19, will involve top officials from the two countries` foreign and defense ministries, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
