The 9,000 to 10,000 teu class is regarded as the new Panamax size. And while even bigger vessels can traverse the new extended canal from 2015 onwards, this size will have more flexibility in container ports with size and depth restrictions.

OCPF said the use of Matareses money from the account represents an excess contribution above the $500 annually as allowed under state law.

But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 9% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable.

Finance Department says it will fix credit-union tax error revealed by auditors

Market Chatter-Corporate finance press digest

The March budget included a measure designed to see credit unions and similar small lending institutions pay the same tax rates as other corporations. The move was a shock that "blindsided" credit unions, says Gary Rogers, a spokesman for Credit Union Central of Canada. And accounting firm Deloitte says amendments passed in late June to implement the changes mean tax rates for credit unions will actually be 13 percentage points higher than those paid by banks and other corporations. NDP finance critic Peggy Nash calls it a radical Conservative tax hike.

Compton's first Latino lawmaker finally submits finance forms

At a billion dollars, the Palm Beach Finance claim against GE Capital is one of the largest Ponzi recovery actions ever filed. Michael Budwick , an attorney working on the case, said Palm Beach Finance intends to seek punitive, or treble, damages. aThe court finds that the plaintiff sufficiently alleges the elements of a claim for civil conspiracy to commit fraud,a Hyman wrote in his 60-page order.

India's finance minister tries to stem panic

Is That Finance Internship Worth It?

Chidambaram tried to restore confidence even as he acknowledged that the country was facing a challenging time. "We believe that the rupee is undervalued and has overshot what is generally believed to be a reasonable and appropriate level," he said, according to a written statement. "Capital inflows will, in due course, correct the position." India has been caught up in an emerging markets sell-off , triggered by talk of tighter U.S. monetary policy . But the slide has been exacerbated by local factors, including a large current account deficit , which reflects the nation's tendency to import more than it exports and leaves it reliant on foreign capital.

shri chidambaram india finance minister I have seen employers think it is OK to abuse good workers simply because they are paying them an hourly wage. And, conversely, we have several employers start their interns unpaid but invest a great deal of time in orientation and training in various aspects of the business, she says. Here are some questions Dorcely-Mohr says students should ask themselves when evaluating an internship opportunity: Was there a person you could contact or an online description you could review to understand the important elements of the business? How detailed was the job description?

New NSW Finance Minister Andrew Constance bans lobbyists

Andrew Constance, with Governor Marie Bashir and Premier Barry O Greece, along with three other eurozone countries -- Portugal, Ireland and Cyprus -- remain dependent on rescue loans from the EU and International Monetary Fund (IMF). The 17-nation eurozone has emerged from its longest ever recession, growing 0.3% in the second quarter after 18 months of contraction. Unemployment rates remain high, but worries that the debt crisis could spread to larger economies such as Spain and Italy -- which both saw borrowing costs climb dangerously high last year -- have abated. The problems are not solved but were in a much better shape than we used to be some years ago," Schaeuble said.

Germany's finance minister: No more Greek-style eurozone bailouts

"No one wants a Washington-style lobbying culture in NSW which is built on access and who you know,'' Mr Constance said. 0327a80e-0e86-11e3-9fbb-38c20355d6ea Andrew Constance, with Governor Marie Bashir and Premier Barry O'Farrell, is sworn in as Finance Minister. Source: News Limited "I want business to be able to deal with me direct." His move comes after The Daily Telegraph revealed that controversial powerbroker Michael Photios's business partner David Begg was meeting sacked former Finance Minister Greg Pearce with clients almost every month during his time in the job. Mr Constance said he attended a meeting with another minister, whom he declined to name, last Monday unaware lobbyists were going to be in the room. Minister Greg Pearce punished with a month-long holiday He does not want that situation again and does not want to find himself in charge of "procurement, ICT and government property" and being influenced by lobbyists.

Stage set for shifting FMC to Finance Ministry

Will Englund Police operations against migrants form a backdrop for the campaigns of the top two candidates. Schaeuble was quoted as telling Germanys Handelsblatt daily that the prospect of further aid is being held out on condition that Greece fulfills its obligations and in the expectation that this will be about far smaller sums than to date, because Greece will then already have a primary surplus. He said he cant name any specific figures or measures and that decisions will have to be made next year, but again rejected the idea of a second debt writedown for Greece following a massive debt restructuring deal agreed with private sector bondholders last year. Asked where the money for a further Greek aid package would come from, Schaeuble said that hasnt been decided but noted that the eurozones rescue fund, the European Stability Mechanism, is far from exhausted. Germanys opposition has seized on Schaeubles comments about Greece to attack the governments credibility ahead of Sept. 22 elections. But officials are insisting the minister was really saying nothing new, noting that they have long said more aid was likely.

Last week, the Cabinet secretariat endorsed the finance ministry's long-held view that commodity derivatives, being financial products, should be under the ambit of the ministry. Once the FMC comes into its fold, the Finance Ministry will take a call on whether to keep it as separate entity or make it a division of the capital market regulator, Securities and Exchange Board Of India (Sebi), sources said. Sebi is under the administrative control of the Finance Ministry. The consent of the consumer affairs ministry to take the FMC out of its purview came amid an escalation of a settlement crisis at the National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL) after members defaulted on the first pay-out on August 20.

Finance Ministry seeks cabinet nod for stuck infra projects

"We will give these - what we call low-hanging fruits among the 250 private sector projects - a push, so that they can get off the ground," he had said. So far, the government has been able to push through around 28 such projects with investment worth 1 lakh crore. "Now, we are aiming at big projects, above Rs 1,000 crore, stuck due to clearances required from more than one ministry," said the finance ministry official quoted earlier, adding that banks have sanctioned Rs 1.3 lakh crore for these projects. Bankers, however, say revival of stalled projects will not spur credit growth immediately. "You have to understand that once the regulatory clearances come, it will take around six months to have some actual ground level movement," an executive director with a state-run bank said.

The Role of Finance May Be Changing, But the Route to the Top Remains the Same

Credit: Reuters/John Kolesidis BERLIN | Fri Aug 23, 2013 2:50am EDT BERLIN (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in a newspaper interview on Friday the European Central Bank (ECB) has made clear it will raise interest rates again once the economy improves and that he welcomed that prospect. "Low rates are above all an expression of insecurity on debt markets. That cannot last forever - even if it is a relief to the federal budget," he said. "The central bank has announced it will raise rates again when the economy improves. That is good." ECB chief Mario Draghi actually said after the last meeting on rates on August 1 that rates will remain low for some time.

However, the available evidence suggests that if anything the reverse has happened, (see table). While 80% of FTSE Financial Directors continue to hold one or more accounting qualifications (and many of those that dont have an MBA or some other higher qualification typically relevant to their industry), it is evident that most still hold a qualification from one of the two bodies that are more orientated towards financial accounting rather than those that are more focused on management accounting. Despite the increasing focus on value creation, my guess is this is never going to change much even over the next twenty years because listed companies always need a head of finance who can tick all the traditional boxes of financing, M&A, compliance, reporting, taxation and investor relations. Such experience is undoubtedly best gained by spending part of ones career in an advisory role in one of the big accounting groups rather than diligently working away inside companies as a value-adding partner to ones peers, only to hit a glass ceiling when it comes to getting the senior position.

While the dollar supplied by the banks would add to RBI's forex reserves , the arrangement would entail RBI bearing the exchange rate risk and offering a cheaper hedging arrangement than what banks have to otherwise pay if they cover the exchange fluctuation risk in the open market.

The FCNR (A) scheme allowed banks to park foreign currency deposits with the RBI in return of equivalent rupee deposits.

India central bank allows non-bank Islamic finance firm

Instead of interest, Islamic finance uses structures such as asset buy-backs and agency agreements to provide returns to investors.

But its decision appears to open the door to the possibility of more NBFCs offering Islamic non-interest products in future, even though full-fledged Islamic banks are expected to remain banned. RBI governor Duvvuri Subbarao, who will step down in September, has said Islamic banking is not possible in the country but sharia-compliant products could be delivered through alternative means.
