Resolution replaces Citigroup as corporate broker

first_img Resolution replaces Citigroup as corporate broker Show Comments ▼ whatsapp RESOLUTION, the life funds group run by Clive Cowdery, ended its broking relationship with Citigroup today following the summer departure of Andrew Thompson, one of the bank’s most senior corporate brokers.Sources said that Resolution was “very much a relationship driven company” and that Thompson’s departure to Deutsche Bank was bound to make a major difference to the bank’s relationship with Citigroup.Resolution said its new financial advisers would be RBC and Barclays Capital, two institutions that were extremely supportive of a recent fund-raising.Thompson looked after Citigroup’s relationships with a number of large UK financial institutions. The bank’s FTSE 100 financial services clients include Lloyds Banking Group, Icap, Resolution and F&C Asset Management.He was one of five managing directors lured out of Hoare Govett – then owned by ABN Amro – by Citigroup in 2005 with two-year guaranteed bonuses. Citigroup said that the bank had won mandates recently, including Punch Taverns and Deutsche Telekom, but that client losses were also inevitable from time to time.Resolution’s choice of RBC as a joint adviser was no doubt assisted by the presence of Josh Critchley who had been the company’s broker while at his previous employer Goldman Sachs.Resolution is the first FTSE 100 client to be won by RBC’s rapidly expanding European capital markets team which has gone from 10 to 22 clients over the past year. “This demonstrates our ability to advise companies up and down the size scale,” says Critchley.

Before you almost had to have one to be looked upon as a credible company. Today we hold licences in many European countries and given that the UK has never been a big market for us, it’s a wise move to put our focus elsewhere.”The announcement comes after online bingo and casino operator JPJ Group last month also confirmed that it is to withdraw both its Vera&John and InterCasino brands from the UK market.The UK-facing websites for Vera&John and InterCasino will cease operations tomorrow (September 3), but both of brands stopped accepting new customers from August 5.

News story: DIO sets out vision for future working with industry

first_imgGraham Dalton, DIO’s CE said: The publication of this strategy, in anticipation of the updated 2018 DIO procurement plan, marks an important moment for DIO. We realise that we have not been the easiest organisation to do business with in the past and we are dedicated to changing that. This strategy sets out our intent to broaden our supply base, and for our existing and prospective suppliers to have the confidence to work with us. We will work in an open and constructive way to deliver innovative and value for money services that meet the requirements of defence and the armed forces. The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO),on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), has launched its commercial strategy setting out its vision for future ways of working with suppliers in the soft and hard facilities management, construction and property advisory sectorsDIO currently spends around £3 billion each year buying infrastructure services to enable the men and women of defence to live, work, train and deploy across the UK and overseas.The strategy, which has been developed in consultation with industry partners, aims to transform the way DIO does business. It provides information on the types of opportunities available to prospective suppliers and outlines plans to create and sustain a competitive market.Central to the strategy is the importance of a broad and more diverse supply base which increases value back to the taxpayer by generating wider competition. DIO aims to increase supplier numbers and create a genuinely competitive supply base which offers greater opportunities to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as larger suppliers.As a main infrastructure client, DIO will engage with industry by sharing pipeline information well in advance of planned procurements to help shape the market, drive innovation and invigorate and maintain a diverse portfolio of suppliers. In turn this will support economic growth nationally and in the regions by giving businesses certainty to recruit and retain staff.Minister for Defence, Personnel and Veterans, Tobias Ellwood said: At a crucial time for defence spending, I am very pleased that the Defence Infrastructure Organisation has applied government best practice alongside working with industry to launch its first ever commercial strategy.It is important that we build a strong and broad supply chain for government contracts and by giving certainty and transparency to the market we ensuring value for money for the taxpayer and a vibrant economy. Gareth Rhys Williams, Government Chief Commercial Officer said: The defence estate is where our armed forces live, work, train and deploy from and it’s crucial we give them the best infrastructure possible. Working with industry is key, and this commercial strategy will ensure that the £3 billion we invest each year in our estate gives more value for money, is better aligned to military needs and gives more certainty to the defence supply chain. Mark Fox, Chief Executive of the Business Services Association said: The DIO commercial strategy sets the direction for future DIO procurement plans. I welcome the publication of the DIO commercial strategy. BSA members were closely involved in its development. Its publication marks an important step forward in the relationship, with government partnering with the private sector to deliver the best possible services.last_img read more
