FRIDAY TICKER: AUGUST 1ST: Collaborative Data Network CMDportal statistics show that the international money market increased outstandings by approximately $31bn during the month of July, both in USD and in EUR, with three of the four major asset classes posting growth. Financial Institutions Groups (FIGs) outstandings increased by 3.44%, seeing the greatest absolute growth. Sovereigns, Supranationals and Agencies (SSAs) posted a 2.9% increase. Oustandings by Corporate borrowers grew by 7%. The only major sector that posted a contraction was Asset-Backed securities, which finished down by approximately $1.4bn (3.2%). USD denominated markets grew by USD13.2bn and Euro denominated markets grew by $12.5bn equivalent. Total International Money Market settlements in July reached $307.8bn - Moody's Interfax Rating Agency has today affirmed the Baa3.ru national scale rating (NSR) of Maritime Bank. The affirmation of the NSR reflects Maritime Bank's currently acceptable capital adequacy and asset quality balanced with weak profitability; and modest liquidity cushion against the bank's high depositor concentration and the challenging operating environment in Russia. NSRs carry no specific outlooks. The rating action is primarily based on the bank's unaudited financial statements for January 2013-July 2014 - The Macau government published the casino industry’s gross gaming revenue today. In July, Macau collected 28.4 gross gaming revenue, or an equivalent of 917 million daily table wins, down 3.6% from a year ago. Macau’s July numbers were clouded by the World Cup, say the government. Chinese are avid soccer fans. Macau names fell off in trading after the announcement, with Galaxy Entertainment losing 2.4%, while Wynn Resorts fell 1.8%. All eyes are now on August’s figures - A new point-of-sale malware known as Backoff has been linked to numerous remote-access attacks, putting small merchants at greatest risk, according to an alert from federal authorities. The alert from the Department of Homeland Security, the Secret Service and the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center notes that Backoff is a recently discovered family of POS malware that has now been identified in at least three separate forensic investigations – Italy’s biggest retail bank Intesa Sanpaolo has beaten forecasts reporting a Q2 net profit of €217m, as the bank moves along a new business path which highlights asset management. The bank said its operating result and pre-tax profit for the period was the best in the last nine quarters, with higher revenues from asset management offsetting the impact of one-off charges such as write-downs.
