Hello all. I am currently recruiting for a paid market research opportunity. I recently did some mystery shopping with a company called Ragdoll Research they are working for the Lloyds banking group, which includes Halifax, Lloyds and Bank of Scotland. The Assignment was to go to my local bank and take out a financial product in my own name. I recorded the conversation I had with the advisor and Ragdoll sent the recordings to the bank to make sure the advisor was selling the product correctly. I was paid £50 for the assignment, which took under 1 hour. The bank removed all record of me applying for the product so my credit report was unaffected. In all honesty it was an easy 50 quid. Ragdoll are currently looking for more people to take part in the project in all locations across the UK. If you want to give it a go and have your main current account with Lloyds, Halifax or Bank of Scotland private mail me with your phone number, e-mail and address and someone from Ragdoll will be in touch.

BOE’s Bean Says First Rate Rise Will Signal Economy Is Healing Bank of England Deputy Governor Charlie Bean said the first interest-rate increase from the current record low will indicate the economy is returning to normal. An increase “will be a symbolic step, because it will be an indication that we are on the road back to normality,” Bean, who oversees monetary policy at the central bank and will retire on June 30, told the Sunday Times in an interview. “I would welcome us getting on to the path of normalization, as a demonstration that the economy is healing,” he added. BOE Governor Mark Carney said June 12 a rate increase may come sooner than investors expect, though he cautioned that rising mortgage debt may threaten the recovery. The central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee cut the key rate to 0.5 percent in March 2009. Under Carney’s forward guidance policy officials had pledged no change until slack had been used up. “The economy is not in an emergency state,” Daniel Vernazza, a ...

A portfolio of just fewer than 40 bingo halls and casinos is being primed for sale for more than £150m, a week after last week’s Budget brought a boost for the ailing sector. The collection of Mecca Bingos and Grosvenor Casinos, codenamed Project Earth, will be put up for sale by Earth Properties, a joint venture between the William Pears Group and Tony Khalastchi. The lender on the portfolio is Lloyds Banking Group. The sale follows Chancellor George Osborne’s announcement last week that tax on bingo halls would be halved from 20% to 10%, after the number of these assets had “plummeted by three-quarters over the last 30 years.” Rank, which owns Mecca Bingo, has since announced it will open three sites. Pears and Khalastchi originally owned a portfolio of 42 assets, spread right across the UK. Three of the smallest assets were sold at auction by Acuitus last month for around £3m, and a further two in Ayr and Edinburgh were due to go to auction this week with a guide price of around £2m. The lar ...

Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs ! Re-shoring of manufacturing jobs to bring 200,000 jobs to UK. A recent report put together by charity the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) and Lloyds Banking Group suggests that as many as 200,000 new jobs in the manufacturing industry could be created over the next decade as outsourcing declines significantly. Available online, the study ‘Making at home, owning abroad’ shows that manufacturers are expected to produce more in the UK bringing between 100,000 and 200,000 to the UK. The report suggest the extra production will come on the back of trends including rising oil costs, increasing regulations and changing patterns of demand, meaning that mid-sized manufacturers in particular will not in the long run be able to export at high volume. Instead, they will serve markets closer to home – making products for use in their home country or nearby. Mid-sized companies are classified as those with turnover between £25m ...

Lloyds Banking Group is negotiating an increase to last year's staff bonus pool that will see the taxpayer-backed lender awarding close to £400m in incentive payments. Lloyds is in advanced talks with UK Financial Investments (UKFI), which manages the Government's stake in the bank, about finalising the payments ahead of its annual results next Thursday. Sky News has learnt that Lloyds is proposing to pay approximately £400m in bonuses for a year in which it will report a first statutory profit since 2010. However, UKFI is understood to be pressing the bank to pay out as little as possible, with the likely outcome being "a modest increase" to last year's £360m in bonuses. Lloyds staff, like their counterparts at Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), are also expected to have the cash elements of their bonuses restricted to £2000 as the Treasury seeks to avoid being drawn into another political row over bankers' pay. Lloyds has historically been the lowest payer of bonuses among the major UK lenders because it ...

Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group, Goldman Sachs and a number of other large banks that the Department of Financial Services regulates will be investigated in the probe, the source said.

BIG BANKS TO DESERT SCOTLAND IF IT VOTES YES. Vince Cable warns that big banks (and other financial institutions too) will flee Scotland if it votes Yes.

Even the monster Lloyds Banking Group is registered in Scotland - as a sop to the SNP, but it would have to leave in the event of separation. That means Halifax BS and Bank of Scotland too, both Lloyds' subsidiaries. These banks must be based in the country where they can be bailed out - the Bank of England being their lender of last resort. That also applies to RBS (formerly Royal Bank of Scotland). Ironically it would have too leave too and Salmond once worked for it ! And other financial institutions - in fact much of the Edinburgh financial industry could leave. Why? Because the financial industry in Scotland is 10 times the size of Scots GDP. That means there would not be enough tax money ( or borrowing power) to bail all these people out when the next .. ...

Lloyds Banking Group says it is increasing its provision for the mis-selling of payment protection insurance (PPI) by another £1.8bn, bringing the total to nearly £10bn.
Lloyds Banking Group’s PPI bill is now £10bn Lloyds Banking Group has put aside a further £1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013 for legacy payment protection insurance (PPI ) mis-selling taking its total to date to almost £10 billion. It has also made a further provision of £130 million relating to the sale of interest rate hedging products to small and medium-sized businesses. This brings the amount provided to £530 million, of which £218 million relates to administration costs. The group expects to report an underlying profit of £6.2 billion for 2013 and a small statutory profit before tax when it announces its full year results on 13 February. In light of this Lloyds Banking Group hopes to resume dividend payments later this year; the Prudential Regulatory Authority has confirmed it is considering this. PPI The PPI provision increase is based on the group’s revised expectations for complaint volumes, uphold rates, and related administrative costs but the group admits it is possible that ...

Lloyds to set target for women in senior roles The boss of Lloyds Banking Group will this week embark upon his own attempt to repair the reputation of Britain's battered banks by pledging to lend more to households and small businesses as well bolstering the number of women at senior level. António Horta-Osório will set a target of 40% of the top 5,000 roles at the bailed-out bank to be held by women by 2020 – from 28% now – in a move welcomed by campaigners, who said it was the first such goal set by a FTSE-100 company. Under fire from the business secretary, Vince Cable, for making half its small business experts redundant, the chief executive of the bank, which is 33% owned by the taxpayer, will also set out goals to lend £1bn more to small businesses this year in an attempt to demonstrate his commitment to the politically sensitive issue.

In November, ministers published figures showing that in the first month of the scheme more than 2000 people had put in offers on homes and applied for a Help to Buy mortgage. That number has now trebled. The mortgages, once approved, would represent nearly £1billion of new lending to aspiring home owners who may have previously found the property market out of reach because of the size of deposit required. Barclays and Santander will introduce their own Help to Buy products onto the market this month, joining Lloyds Banking Group, RBS, HSBC, Virgin Money and Aldermore who have all launched products over the last three months, providing a wide range of options for first time buyers and other potential applicants in 2014. The expansion will mean two-thirds of the entire UK mortgage mark ...
Business confidence 'improving' 06 Jan 2014 ‘Quiet optimism’ among manufacturers has been reported in a survey by the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF). Executives predict investments, exports and profits will grow over the coming months. Chief Executive of the EEF, Terry Scuoler, said, ‘Manufacturers are telling us they expect to make a greater contribution to growth, investment and jobs this year’. Reports by Lloyds Banking Group also suggest that business confidence is on the rise. Their survey of over 1,500 firms shows that confidence is at its highest in 20 years, with investment intentions at their highest level in 19 years. Meanwhile, a separate survey of 122 chief financial officers suggests that bank borrowing is now the most attractive source of funding – with easier access meaning more planned expansion this year. Chancellor George Osborne may draw on this news in Monday’s speech reaffirming that more spending cuts will be necessary in 2014.

Hereward College's Savvy Savers Student Group has been raising money for local charity groups before Christmas. The college group was set up with the Money for Life Challenge, run by Lloyds Banking Group, a personal money management programme, that helps people to manage their money better. They have collecting food from staff and students at the college, which they sold at Hereward's recent Enterprise and Employability Fair. The money they raised will be donated to Coventry Mencap and Wayfarers Club. The group also raised £120 worth of sponsorship with the help of two local pubs, The Craven Arms and Nursery Tavern. The total paid for 12 boxes of food, which will be split equally between Coventry Foodbank and Coventry Open Christmas. Savvy Saver student Martin Berisford said “I would like to thank all the people who made donations. They have allowed us to gift many items to Coventry Foodbank and Open Christmas and I’m sure they will be gratefully received by lots people throughout the city.”

The New Economics Foundation (Nef) said the big four – Barclays, HSBC and the bailed-out Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Banking Group – were “failing to make themselves useful in the economy” despite the 10% rise in the value of the taxpayer’s implicit support. Tony Greenham, head of finance and business at Nef, said the size of the implicit subsidy being provided to banks was staggering. Greenham said: “UK taxpayers are still on the hook for the big banks. “UK retail banking remains a curious kind of public-private partnership, but a highly unequal one – the public take the losses while private interests take the profits. “Despite huge government subsidies, big banks still aren’t supporting the interests of the real economy. “Even government attempts to bribe the banks into lending seem to have had little effect.”
To all my colleagues at Lloyds Banking Group, thank you so much for the collection. We are overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity.

For five years Tory supporters have whined on this page about Gordon Brown selling off Britain's gold on the cheap but i guess we will not be hearing a lot from them about George Osborne losing the country another 230 million pounds by selling parts of the Lloyds banking group owned by the tax payer to the public sector in a hurry to try and improve the governments figures for the budget and then claiming that the country had made a profit which was exposed as yet another Tory lie yesterday.

Lloyds Bank Fined For Permitted Frailties of Human Nature By Darren Lelliott Yesterday it was announced that Lloyds Banking Group was given a fine of £28m for systemic practices of mis-selling. Or more plainly it was discovered that it’s employee financial advisers, that were incentivised to achieve targets in selling the products of the business, had not been giving their clients truly independent advice. In the words of Homer Simpson “dohh”. It’s a regular occurrence so I won’t belabor the point but of course incentives will sway the judgement and decisions of the majority of mere mortals. Conversely those employee individuals that are not swayed in this manner will most likely fail to achieve their corporate goals and thus will cease to distort the average outcome. Thus every form of product distribution is effected, which is completely reasonable when it is a paid employee, except when that employee is also presenting themselves as either representing the client or has an advisory capaci .. ...

Lloyds to sell up to half TSB stake at IPO Britain's Lloyds Banking Group will probably sell 30 to 50 percent of its stake in the 631 bank branches being rebranded as TSB when the new entity floats on the stock market in 2014, a newspaper reported. TSB's Chief Executive Peter Pester told Britain's Sunday Telegraph that TSB will begin its roadshow relatively soon, with the listing planned for the middle of next year. The share sale will also include a retail offering, Pester said. Lloyds was ordered to sell the branches by European regulators as a penalty for receiving a 20-billion-pound ($32 billion) government bailout in the 2008 financial crisis. Pester also said that in the ten weeks since TSB launched a new advertising campaign, customers had been signing up for current accounts twice as quickly as the group had estimated. (Telegraph)
london-red-bus The 159 to Streatham could soon offer NFC payment. Image: Rob Wilson / Shutterstock.com The buses' Oyster card readers, which rely on radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, have been upgraded so they are also compatible with NFC technology. The move means that people travelling on TfL buses in London no longer need to use cash or top up their Oyster card to pay for their journeys. However, the upgrade has been a while coming: TfL said in February 2011 that all of London's 8,000 buses would accept contactless card payments in time for the summer Olympics. It also said that tube, tram and train services would be compatible with contactless cards by the end of 2012. Commuters can use the new payment method providing they have a contactless credit or debit card, which is indicated by a symbol printed on the card. Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group (Halifax), MBNA, Newcastle Building Society, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group (NatWest or RBS), have rolled out contactless cards in the ...

RBS agrees 1,080 mortgages through UK's 'help to buy' scheme State-backed Royal Bank of Scotland has agreed in principle mortgages with 1,080 customers since Britain's flagship 'Help to Buy' housing stimulus programme was launched a month ago. The Conservative government is pushing the plan, with a 2015 election in mind, as a way to help people move onto, or up, the property ladder, and stimulate growth after three years of economic stagnation. RBS, which owns NatWest, said 73 percent of the mortgages were for first-time buyers. If all of the applications are approved, the bank will be lending 171.6 million pounds under the scheme. It said the average amount its customers wanted to borrow was 159,000 pounds and the average price of the home they wanted to buy was 167,565 pounds. "These are majority young first-time buyers who, without 'Help to Buy', wouldn't have been able to consider a mortgage or buy a home," said Lloyd Cochrane, head of mortgages at NatWest and RBS. Meanwhile Halifax, owned by RBS's pa ...

Monday, 17 June 2013 11:41 What happened to the Co-operative Bank illustrates how much is still wrong with UK banks Mindful Money Shaun Richards If we analyse what has happened in the credit crunch era we find ourselves looking time and time again at the financial sector and in particular our banks. It has long been a theme of this blog that until we properly reform our banks in the UK there will be no sustained economic recovery. This clashes with the official spin and hype that there has been a considerable improvement highlighted by stories like this from the Financial Times. George Osborne is to give his strongest signal yet that he wants to move Lloyds Banking Group back into private ownership by the 2015 general election, He will apparently do so at the Mansion House speech on Wednesday. Although there is the inconvenient detail that the Lloyds Bank share price remains at 61 pence a fair way below the 73.6 needed to repay all the costs of the bailout. However even such apparent optimism has accepted ...
10 things from last week in the city: 1. Royal Bank of Scotland announced that Stephen Hester would step down before the government sells its 82% stake in the bailed out bank, amid suggestions that the chief executive had fallen out with the chancellor. 2.

Contractors processing complaints about payment protection insurance for Lloyds Banking Group were told to turn a blind eye to the risk of fraud and play the system to the detriment of customers, an undercover reporter on The Times discovered. 4. Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, revealed he had taken a 3.2% stake, worth more than £100m in G4S, the beleaguered security supplier shamed by its failure to provide enough guards for the Olympics last year. 5.

British banks plan task force to respond to standards probe Executives at Britain's top banks may form a task force to respond to a report due this week from an influential committee of parliamentarians examining standards within the industry, banking sources said on Wednesday. The proposal would see the chief executives from Britain's biggest six banks - Barclays, HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Banking Group, Standard Chartered and Santander UK - produce a coordinated response to the report, which is expected to be published on Friday, the sources said. The Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards (PCBS) was set up by the government last July with a remit to examine ethics within the industry after Barclays was fined for attempting to manipulate global interest rate benchmarks. Bank executives have discussed the task force plan with the industry's lobby group, the British Bankers Association (BBA), but will not make a final decision on whether to proceed until after the commission's report is ...

George Osborne 'to signal sale in shares of taxpayer-backed Lloyds Banking Group'
I hate when people call me a promoter. I book venues, I scout and buy the most talented artist from across the world, I make sure that the parties go as planned, I use capital that I have raised alone (yes I don't use mommy and daddy's money and no I don't have a trust fund), I take 100% risk and responsibility for everything that can go wrong. I spend ten of thousands of dollars on these events. "Promoters" just sit on a couch, send invites and mass texts people. Don't call me a promoter, Kazi sounds better.
Rick Frost Rome was destroyed from within and so it shall be with the United States. I believe there is a scroll out there in the Egyptian Desert - waiting to be found. It probably says things like: The son's of Lucifer, took the daughters of men, and unto them sons' were born. These evil hybrids were collectively known under a bevy of names, (i.e., Republican's, Tea Party Patriots, Capitalists, pseudo-Democrats, etc.). They went forth and multiplied and though still very small in number they have brought a mighty nation to it's knees. I wonder, how many bridges, buildings, and dams collapsed?; How many gas and oil pipelines have broken since the Republican and Tea Party "Patriots" have nixed Obama's plan to put folks to work rebuilding the infrastructure and instead pushed us into economic stagnation with their feeble minded obstructionism. We probably could have rebuilt half the bridges in the nation with the money the Repub's have spent on trying to officially overturn "Obama-care" - what has it been 3 ...

Administrators Duff and Phelps have been cleared of wrongdoing over accusations of a conflict of interest in their appointment at Rangers. The insolvency firm previously advised former owner Craig Whyte on his takeover of the Ibrox club in 2011, when he purchased an 85% stake in Rangers for £1 from Sir David Murray. Duff and Phelps, formerly MCR, was appointed as administrator of Rangers by Mr Whyte on February 14 last year after the club had acquired debts of up to £124m. The insolvency firm faced allegations of a conflict of interest over its involvement at the Ibrox club, including in the use of an £26.7m deal for future season ticket sales with Ticketus by Mr Whyte to effectively fund his takeover and wipe out Rangers’ debt to Lloyds Banking Group. On Thursday, the Insolvency Practitioners Association – one of the professional bodies that regulates insolvency practitioners – confirmed it had concluded its 13-month investigation into the conduct of Duff and Phelps. In a statement, the associat ...
