Francesca JENNER

European Commission

One of the guiding principles behind our approach in creating a new website for people across Europe is clear: to make it as easy as possible for users to find the information they want.

SMEs Dance to the Basel III Shuffle

cap structure sme eu.PNG
I often wonder, what if Basel II capital accords had been in place prior to the Great Recession? 
Could the devastating crisis fueled by the serial pops of credit bubbles rumbling through the dismal landscape of G20 principalities been avoided with better capital adequacy safeguards? 
Could the precious Post Cold War peace dividend been preserved; had the fiduciaries of global solvency not toppled the dominoes of economic prosperity and political stability through extreme selfishness and irratio

SME's Stand Their Ground, Get The Loan

8028226891?profile=originalTerrific piece on SME lending in yesterday's Irish Independent.

More than half of all lending decisions appealed to the Credit Review Office by small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are overturned. This is a good lesson for SME's to be persistent in the face of rejection. SME's that can show confidence in their business prospects and demonstrate a creditworthiness can turn a negative decision into a green light. The key to this happy reversal of fortune is being able to provide evidence of creditwo

Intermission on the Stage of World Finance

The G-20 Summit is over and the US has walked away without a major commitment. From the US perspective this has been a failed summit. The remaining G-19 member’s outlook could be interpreting this as a success. Our developed and emerging nations economic partners stood up to the minimum demands of the United States.

As recent calls from various interests for a return to a global gold standard, US quantitative and non-quantitative easing proposals,
