  • P&M Notebook: Japan’s big break?

  • P&M Notebook: national champions

    Different countries treat their banks differently, but rarely has that been clearer than last week.

The UK, though, started criminal prosecution of its own ‘national champion’, with the Serious Fraud Office unveiling its fraud allegations against Barclays.

  • P&M Notebook: DMOh no

    Last week brought big talk from the European Commission, which raised its head from the technicalities of Brexit or the latest round of regulatory standards to lay out a vision for the financial future of Europe. But even with the last round of elections landing on the pro-European side, it has an uphill struggle ahead.

  • P&M notebook: payment for results

    The daftness of Deutsche’s distinction between "variable compensation" and "retention awards" was plain for all to see, though a good few hundred pages into the bank’s annual report. But, silly optics aside, it ought to help the bank’s recovery.

  • P&M Notebook: big name, small deal

    Even a publishing house could, at a push, bid for a broker the size of Panmure Gordon, whose profits, at around £400,000 a year, certainly aren’t setting the City alight. But it’s the return of Bob Diamond, the former Barclays boss, which has set the broadsheets buzzing.
