UBS Bank: IPsoft Amelia AI and Customer Service Automation
What is Amelia artificial intelligence? How can the AI platform help improve banking and financial services while keeping operating costs low? For more: https://www.cxotalk.com/video/ubs-bank-amelia-ai-customer-service Tom DeCarlo, UBS head of client services in the Americas, tells industry analyst Michael Krigsman at CXOTalk during the IPsoft Digital Workforce Summit in New York about the company's efforts to improve efficiency and increase the quality of customer experiences through technology. UBS is continuously training its workforce with focuses on policy process and procedure, but is also using IPsoft's Amelia AI platform to help ensure a return on investment. At UBS, Amelia works within a contact center to help CSAs and sales assistants work more quickly to assist financial advisers and account holders. Amelia can simulate interaction with a customer service representative and help clients with different interactions, ranging from simple account updates and password changes to more complex assessments of risk profiles for new loan applicants or advising employees on HR policies. Early feedback is overwhelmingly positive. "When I think about AI, I think about the closest thing to a human being that I can have interacting with my clients at the highest level of quality," DeCarlo says. From the transcript: Michael Krigsman: So Tom, how do you manage to improve the client experience and at the same time, reduce your cost? Tom DeCarlo: So, it's a couple things, right? You have the people, right? The workforce, in itself, is the primary driver of that. Continuously training, and having a quality team that can focus in on specific types of training is a huge effort in itself. We've self-funded a team to do that this year. Secondly, is policy process and procedure. So, we want to be as efficient as possible with our processes so that we have very little exceptions there. And thirdly, is technology. So once you have well-trained people and clean procedures, and policies, then you can begin to layer technology on top of it, and show a good investment and ROI. Michael Krigsman: And that’s the nature of your current project with IPsoft and Amelia. Tom DeCarlo: That's correct. Yeah. So we actually have completed Phase I of a Proof of Concept pile with a pretty complex business case on the retirement – deceased distribution side of the business where we have Amelia interacting with our CSAs, our sales assistants, in determining what documentation is necessary in order to have a distribution lead the retirement account once the client account holder had been deceased. So, there are many different situations, many different dependencies, and documents that need to be signed in order to do so. We taught Amelia, we trained her with a training documentation, workflows, policy and processes, approvals as well, on the best way to do so. And, she’s interacting directly in this controlled environment with our CSAs at a high quality. Michael Krigsman: And, you deliberately chose a process that’s a particularly complex one. Tom DeCarlo: Yes. So, I wanted to prove not only that Amelia could work within a contact center, but I wanted to prove that this artificial intelligence in itself could be a tool that we could use across the firm for many different functional interactions. We could have chosen password reset, right? And just about any type of bot can change a password; identify, authenticate, change the password, re-enter that password, and it's done. But, when you have an inquiry type that is robust, that can go many different directions and requires some thought process, this artificial intelligence does the right job.

RBS reportedly to shrink investment bank, shed thousands of jobs - corporate
Royal Bank of Scotland is reportedly to shrink its investment banking and international operations and lay off up to a quarter of its workers. Sources have told news organisations that the part-nationalised bank has given in to demands from British politicians that it focus on lending to households and businesses in the UK. The price for that will be 30,000 people losing their jobs, though that total does include previously announced cuts of 23,000 as it sells its US retail business Citizens...

UBS AG v Commissioners for HMRC & DB Group Services (UK) Ltd v Commissioners for HMRC
[2016] UKSC 13 UKSC 2014/0151 UBS AG (Respondent) v Commissioners for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (Appellant) UKSC 2014/0152 DB Group Services (UK) Ltd (Respondent) v Commissioners for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (Appellant) On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales) The respondents ("UBS" and "DB" respectively) each implemented similar schemes for the provision of bonuses to their employees in early 2004. These schemes were designed to avoid income tax and National Insurance Contributions ("NICs"). These schemes were structured around bank employees receiving shares which fell within the definition of "restricted securities" under the provisions of Chapter 2 of Part 7 of ITEPA. The shares were later redeemed for cash. HMRC determined that the value of the shares awarded to the employees as bonuses at the start of each scheme were liable to income tax and NICs as earnings from their employment. Given the similar structure of the two schemes, these two appeals were heard together by the First-Tier Tribunal, the Upper Tribunal and the Court of Appeal. The issue in these cases was whether certain arrangements for the provision of employee bonuses in the form of shares subject to forfeiture provisions, fall within the exemption from income tax contained in Chapter 2 of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 ("ITEPA"). HMRC argued that the Ramsay principle, which requires the relevant legislation to be construed purposively and the facts to be viewed realistically, applies to the arrangements, with the result that the exemption does not apply, either because they are schemes for payment of cash bonuses (the "Broad Ramsay argument"); or in the alternative because the forfeiture provisions must be ignored as commercially irrelevant contingencies (the "Narrow Ramsay argument"). The Supreme Court unanimously allows HMRC’s appeals.

UBS traders charged, bank fined over Libor rate fixing
Prosecutors in the US charged two former traders at Swiss bank UBS with manipulating the Libor and other interest rates, while UBS agreed to pay $1.5 billion in fines to US, UK and Switzerland regulators after admitting to fraud and bribery in connection with the rigging efforts. According to Reuters "Libor and related benchmarks are used to set interest rates for trillions of dollars worth of loans around the world, ranging from home loans to credit cards to complex derivatives. In settling with US, UK and Swiss authorities, UBS not only paid one of the largest fines ever imposed on a bank, its Japanese subsidiary pleaded guilty to one U.S. criminal count of fraud relating to manipulation of benchmark rates, including the yen Libor. The Japanese subsidiary is where authorities allege much of the manipulation of interest rates occurred, as employees of the bank looked to profit on derivatives trades linked to the rates. UBS is the second large international bank to reach a settlement with U.S. and UK authorities, and other settlements are expected to follow in the next few months. In June Barclays Plc agreed to pay $453 million in fines to settle allegations its employees attempted to manipulate Libor rates." This animation explains what the Libor is and why it's important and how UBS and other banks manipulated the rate.

EFCC Slams UK Bank HSBC For Predicting Buhari's Failure by ebusnwaoma: 5:08pm Just like the Presidency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has also slammed UK Bank, HSBC for saying that the second term of President Muhammadu Buhari would stunt the economy. While the EFCC is expected to act independently without political interference, the agency stated that the UK bank, HSBC, which is Europe’s largest by total asset, was synonymous with money laundering. The tweet on the commission's official handle reads; ‘The Story of HSBC’, the anti-graft agency said over $100m was laundered by the bank on behalf of Abacha. “The HSBC bank is one of the largest banking and financial services organisations in the world. The HSBC’s international network comprises around 7, 500 offices in over 80 countries and territories in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa. “Since inception, HSBC is synonymous with money laundering and has paid billions of US dollars in fines across the world. “In Nigeria the bank laundered more than $100m for the late dictator, General Sani Abacha, in Jersey, Paris, London and Geneva. The bank is also involved with laundering proceeds of corruption for over 50 Nigerians including a serving Nigerian senator. “Part of Abacha’s assets yet to be recovered are: $12m in HSBC Fund Admin Ltd with account number S-104460 in Jersey; $20m in HSBC Life (Europe) with account number 37060762 in the UK and $1.6m in HSBC Bank Plc with account number 38175076 in the UK. “We shall not rest until every penny belonging to the Federal Republic of Nigeria is repatriated to Nigeria as to improve the lives of the people.”

Robert Scanlon, Bright Advisor
Bright: Financial Services on the Blockchain Bright Advisor: Robert Scanlon, Former Group Chief Credit Officer and Chief Risk Officer at Standard Chartered Bank, Swiss Bank Plc and UBS I started work early 70s, joining a clearing bank in the UK. That brought me experience of retail, and some domestic and lending positions, which set me up really for moving on to a different element and a higher level of risk. More down side, but more fun. I moved into the corporate area. Having worked for Midland. I moved on to HSBC. I ran HSBC’s risk business in the UK. And went on to go and work with them in other areas as well. During that time, I got to learn enough about the business, such that when I joined the Swiss banks in risk functions, it was about maximising business. And how much business can you get done safely, well and well remunerated. So please understand, it’s about getting maximum business - safely. I’ve worked in a lot of emerging markets and unless you can do small and keep information current and accurate it’s very hard for people in a poor country to be able to get finance. So microfinance, small lending is the way to go, but it has higher losses and less transparency. So finding something that puts information in a provable form will help both the borrower and the lender. In addition to that, you can’t afford to have a very expensive control process around something you only make a small amount of money on. So you have to be large. It has to be about how you create the best opportunities for people in the safest environment, both for the investors and the people themselves. And the impact, because it’s incremental in hundreds of percent will have an impact on every economy. Not in time, because it takes time for businesses to grow. But in the outcome for those people and those markets. And that, at the end of my career would be something I would dearly love to achieve.

Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC "a long way off from being an attractive investment"
RBS remains 73%-owned by the British tax-payer so many of us will be distressed to learn it lost £469mln in the third quarter, and it has not made an annual profit since 2007. The company is still paying for the legacy issues dating all the way back to the financial crisis of the last decade, Helal Miah of The Share Centre, tells Proactive Investors, but there could be a sliver of light at the end of the tunnel. “I think the latest set of quarterly numbers, when you look at the operating line, it is actually quite encouraging,” the research analyst said. “It made an operating profit in the third quarter of £1.3bn, and that’s the best since round about 2014, and if you take the last seven quarters, an average of a billion each quarter in operating profit,” Miah noted. “The other thing is, the company has been restructuring, costs have been coming down, and they’ve made cost reductions to the amount of £695mln this time around, and they’re on target, they say, for £800mln for the full year,” Miah pointed out. The low net interest margins are going to hurt them, but that’s a problem for the whole sector, Miah said. The bad news is that Miah does not seem any end to skeletons rattling around in the closet, with the big one likely to be the mortgage mis-selling scandal in the US. “It’s still a long way off from being an attractive investment. We’re not going to get a dividend payment – not for a while, anyway- and the government still owns a substantial proportion of the business. We’ve got this mortgage mis-selling issue, ongoing issues of further litigation charges and fines, and we’ve got this Williams & Glyn issue that hasn’t been sold off, or they haven’t managed to ring-fence it off,” he warned.
MI Summit 2013 - London: Global Overview: Is Confidence Returning?
Speakers: Willem Buiter, CBE, Chief Economist, Citi Ann Cairns, President, International Markets, MasterCard Ed Daniels, Chairman, Shell UK; Executive Vice President, Downstream Technology, Royal Dutch Shell Alexander Friedman, Global Chief Investment Officer, UBS AG Tidjane Thiam, Group CEO, Prudential Plc Moderator: Gillian Tett, Assistant Editor and Columnist, Financial Times The Great Recession is shrinking in the rear-view mirror - and the relief is palpable. Economic prospects in the United States seem to be brightening, with GDP growth expected to surpass 3 percent next year. And while China's expansion no longer dazzles, it remains robust. Even Japan has enjoyed a short-term boost. Yet amid the inconsistency - some might say lethargy - of the recovery, investors remain noticeably nervous. Some regions are still grasping for growth, such as Europe. And some up-and-coming countries once considered both safe and vibrant, e.g., Turkey and Brazil, have seen political turmoil that raises questions about their futures. What will central banks do in the coming months - will they modify their activist stance? Will the Middle East heat up even further in 2014? And with its own energy boom, does the West still care? Are other emerging markets still alluring? How will innovation and public policy shape the next waves in health and technology? Our opening plenary will set the stage for the Summit by examining these and other consequential challenges and trends.

35 FOREIGN Banks Got Bailed Out By The Fed!
One may be forgiven to believe that via its FX liquidity swap lines the Fed only bailed out foreign Central Banks, which in turn took the money and funded their own banks. It turns out that is only half the story: we now know the Fed also acted in a secondary bail out capacity, providing over $350 billion in short term funding exclusively to 35 foreign banks, of which the biggest beneficiaries were UBS, Dexia and BNP. Since the funding provided was in the form of ultra-short maturity commercial paper it was essentially equivalent to cash funding. In other words, between October 27, 2008 and August 6, 2009, the Fed spent $350 billion in taxpayer funds to save 35 foreign banks. And here people are wondering if the Fed will ever allow stocks to drop: it is now more than obvious that with all banks leveraging the equity exposure to the point where a market decline would likely start a Lehman-type domino, there is no way that the Brian Sack-led team of traders will allow stocks to drop ever... Until such time nature reasserts itself, the market collapses without GETCO or the PPT being able to catch it, and the Fed is finally wiped out in one way or another.

Andrew Buxton BARCLAYS PLC + RBS COUTTS BANK City of London Police Biggest Case
MAINSTREAM NEWS MEDIA EXTRACTS: The Carroll Foundation Trust and parallel Gerald 6th Duke of Sutherland Trust multi-billion dollar corporate identity theft offshore tax fraud bribery case has disclosed that the First Senior Treasury Counsel Mark Heywood QC along with the First Treasury Counsel Sir James Eadie QC are confronting major criminal allegations of money laundering offshore tax fraud obstruction and bribery on an industrial scale in this case of international importance. Sources have confirmed that the City of London law firm Slaughter & May former partner Lucy Wylde until quite recently was based at HM Treasury in the capacity as General Counsel reporting to Sir James Eadie QC during what is known to have been yet another bungled attempt to shield herself from criminal prosecution in this case spanning three continents. Scotland Yard leaked sources have disclosed that the criminal “standard of proof” prosecution files have explicitly “named” the Slaughter & May former partner Lucy Wylde as Gerald Carroll’s personal legal adviser and consequently is universally regarded as a “central actor” in the co-ordinated break-up and fraudulent liquidation of major operating divisions of the Carroll Global Corporation Trust industrial empire. UK Companies House leaked sources have said that Slaughter & May “in concert” with the PwC and Ernst & Young accounting firms fraudulently incorporated a bewildering array of twenty eight forged and falsified “name-switch dummy” Carroll Trust Corporations which were effectively utilised as a corporate diversionary smokescreen for the embezzlement of a staggering two hundred and fifty million dollars of the Carroll Foundation Trust huge treasury investment holdings. In a stunning twist American and British media reports on the case have revealed that Scotland Yard continues to retain the “closely connected” Kent Police Service charge sheet files which concern Gerald Carroll’s multi-million dollar Eaton Square Belgravia penthouse and Westminster residences in central London which were the subject of multiple fraudulent seizure offences. It is further understood that the dossiers contain a shocking forensic evidential paper trail surrounding the systematic break-ins burglaries and theft of the entire contents of the properties which included the priceless Oxford University Carroll Institute Trust US Anglo-Irish Scottish Russian national treasures collections. The Carroll Foundation Trust files are held within a complete lockdown at the FBI Headquarters Washington DC and the Metropolitan Police Service Scotland Yard London under the supervision of the Commissioner Cressida Dick QPM who is known to have an intimate knowledge of this case which stretches the globe.

In Business - India Not In A Good Place At All: Bhanu Baweja
"I'm surprised that India has not been downgraded yet," says Bhanu Baweja of UBS Investments. He does not think India will achieve its fiscal deficit target of 4.8% unless the government cuts its planned expenditure. "There are some positives, exports are rising and a good monsoon will boost rural consumption," he says, adding that growth can improve only modestly from current levels.

END FED: European Banks Borrowing From The Federal Reserve
http://www.bloomberg.com/video/64952570/ End the federal reserve! Biggest Borrowers Of Federal Reserve 1. Barclays Bank: $232B (UK) 2. Bank Of America: $212B (US) 3. Royal Bank Of Scotland: $181B (UK) 4. Societe Generale: $124B (FR) 5. Dresdner Bank: $123B (DE) Commercial Dept Sellers To Commercial Paper Funding Facility 6 of top 11 of sellers were European banks. Sold combined $274.1 billion. UBS sold $74.5--the most. Fed Names Recipients of $3.3 Trillion in Crisis Aid December 01, 2010, 1:58 PM EST By Craig Torres and Scott Lanman Support Companies The data detail the breadth of central bank support that reached beyond banks to companies such as General Electric Co., which accessed a Fed program 12 times for a total of $16 billion in commercial paper. Lawmakers demanded disclosure, over the Fed's initial objections, as U.S. central bankers pushed beyond their traditional role of backstopping banks. The Fed bought short-term IOUs from corporations, risky assets from Bear Stearns and more than $1 trillion in U.S. housing debt. UBS, Fed Powers Other UBS, Switzerland's largest bank, was the biggest borrower from the Commercial Paper Funding Facility, tapping the program 11 times for $74.5 billion. The emergency programs included the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility, which has supported billions of dollars in credit to small businesses, credit card borrowers, and students, and the Term Auction Facility, which helped banks get cheaper funding. Bernanke pushed the boundaries of the Fed's powers, using section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act, which allowed the central bank to aid non-banks under "unusual and exigent circumstances." In some facilities, the Fed engaged in non- recourse lending, meaning it loaned against collateral alone and took a greater risk of loss. http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-12-01/fed-names-recipients-of-3-3-trillion-in-crisis-aid.html Federal Reserve May Be `Central Bank of the World' After UBS, Barclays Aid By Bradley Keoun and Hugh Son - Dec 1, 2010 9:00 PM PT Borrowers Fed spreadsheets showed the central bank became the world's lender of last resort as dollars flowed to European banks as well as Bank of America Corp. and Wells Fargo & Co., among top borrowers from the Term Auction Facility at $45 billion each. Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which posted record profit last year, borrowed more than $24 billion from another program. Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson Inc. and Fairfield, Connecticut- based General Electric Co. sold commercial paper, a form of short-term debt, to the Fed under a program that lent as much as $348.2 billion at its peak. Private Frims Three of the top seven borrowers under the CPFF program were private firms. New York-based Hudson Castle received $53.3 billion in aggregate, BSN Holdings took $42.8 billion, and Liberty Hampshire Co., a unit of Guggenheim Partners LLC, drew $41.4 billion, Fed data show. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-12-02/federal-reserve-may-be-central-bank-of-the-world-after-ubs-barclays-aid.html
