Russia could be in the midst of a payday loan bubble as struggling households load up on short-term, high-interest debt as they come out of the coronavirus recession, a Central Bank representative told lawmakers Monday.

Applying for a payday loan online could help you.

“This year we are already seeing a fairly rapid growth in individuals’ debt burdens, and in some places we can even talk about bubbles,” the Vedomosti business daily cited Ksenia Yudayeva, the Bank’s first deputy chairman, as telling the State Duma’s financial committee in a hearing.

Russian household spending power sank to its lowest level since 2009 in the first months of the year, according to analysis by the Bank of Finland’s Economies in Transition (BOFIT) unit — with the coronavirus compounding years of squeezes on living standards spurred by sanctions over Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the Kremlin’s austere economic policies. 

In response, households have loaded up on credit to help cover everyday expenses. The number of payday loans issued hit a record high in March, while the volume of loans which are more than 90 days overdue has risen by 20% over the last year to above 1 trillion rubles ($13.5 billion).

It is not the first time Russian regulators have feared a surge in lending, as the coronavirus pandemic dealt only a temporary reprieve to a years-long phenomenon of household spending rising faster than incomes, with the gap being covered by higher borrowing rates. In 2019, the Bank backed a series of measures which capped interest rates and forced banks to keep more capital on hand for the riskiest borrowers. 

The Bank is now supporting a new round of draft bills working their way through Russia’s parliament that would compel banks to tell borrowers when a new loan would take them above a 50% debt-to-income ratio — where spending on debt repayments makes up more half their monthly income — Yudayeva said Monday.

In the face of volatile markets and a global pandemic, an old capital markets vehicle has been taking the markets by storm: special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). Although SPACs have been around for many years, the volume and profile of these deals have exploded in the past 12 months, and regulator interest is expected to increase proportionately. 

Indeed, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has signaled that it intends to enhance its scrutiny of SPAC transactions and resulting public operating companies. Just last week, the SEC’s Division of Enforcement reportedly sent requests to various financial institutions focused on their SPAC dealings.1  According to press reports, Enforcement staff are seeking information about those firms’ deal fees, deal volumes and internal controls related to SPACs. And earlier this week, the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance and Office of the Chief Accountant each issued statements underscoring the need for SPACs and the companies that enter the public markets by merging with a SPAC to meet their accounting, financial reporting and governance obligations as public companies.2 These developments likely foreshadow a wave of SEC Enforcement inquiries assessing potential violations of the federal securities laws involving SPACs.

SPACs offer important benefits to the capital markets, but they also present unique risks for investors that we expect the staff of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement to scrutinize. In this alert, we discuss areas of expected enforcement focus as the SEC’s Division of Enforcement dials up its attention on SPACs. 

How SPACs Work

A SPAC is a company with no operations that offers securities for cash via an initial public offering (IPO) and places substantially all of the offering proceeds into a trust account to fund the future acquisition of one or more private operating companies. In connection with the SPAC’s IPO, its securities are listed on an exchange and publicly traded on the secondary market while the SPAC looks for its acquisition target. SPACs have a specified time frame in which they must acquire a private company, typically two years. SPAC shareholders have the choice either to remain a shareholder of the company after the SPAC’s business combination with the private company (referred to as the de-SPACing transaction) or instead to redeem their shares and receive a pro rata share of the funds held in the trust. Upon the completion of the de-SPACing transaction, the acquired company becomes public through its business combination with the public SPAC entity; at that time, the previously private operating company must meet all SEC requirements for public companies, including for robust financial reporting and disclosure. If an acquisition does not occur within the applicable period, the trust is liquidated and the net offering proceeds plus interest are returned to shareholders. 

The entity establishing a management team and forming the SPAC is referred to as the SPAC’s “sponsor.” Recent sponsors have included hedge fund managers, investment banks, private equity firms, venture capital firms and institutional asset managers. Sponsors contribute their investment and operational expertise and typically provide a portion of the capital that is used to pay IPO and ongoing expenses while the SPAC seeks an acquisition. In return, sponsors have significant control over their SPACs and seek to gain significant upside from an eventual business combination transaction, including through their receipt of “founder shares” equal to approximately 20 percent of the common equity in the SPAC (typically for a nominal $25,000 purchase price), as well as through participating in other SPAC instruments with upside. 

Once the SPAC has identified an initial business combination target, the SPAC typically issues a merger proxy describing the contemplated transaction and seeking shareholder approval. (This document often takes the form of a combined prospectus and proxy statement included in a registration statement on Form S-4 under the Securities Act.) Secondary market trading in the SPAC shares continues after the merger agreement with the target company is announced. 

Many SPACs use other financing transactions to raise additional money for the proposed acquisition, such as a PIPE (private investment in public equity) transaction. PIPEs are private securities offerings sold to sophisticated investors at terms that often are more favorable than those available to public shareholders. A PIPE typically is entered into at the same time the merger agreement is signed and closes at the same time as the acquisition. 

SPACs have been around since the early 1990s, but their popularity has grown in an extraordinary fashion recently. SPAC IPOs have surged globally, to a record $80 billion of new issuance activity in the first 10 weeks of 2021, the vast majority in the United States.3 That volume has already eclipsed the record $79 billion in gross proceeds raised by IPOs of such vehicles in 2020.  

Enforcement Risks for SPAC Sponsors

The most significant enforcement risk arises from allegations of inadequate disclosures, with SPAC sponsors on the front line. The sponsor is expected to provide full and fair disclosure regarding potential risks, conflicts of interest, and other material facts related to each proposed transaction. This includes disclosures made during the IPO and in the proxy statements and registration statements describing the initial business combination. 

The SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance staff has indicated that it will be closely scrutinizing sponsor disclosures regarding conflicts of interest, given that the economic interests of SPAC sponsors, directors and officers are not the same as, and can be at odds with, those of SPAC investors.4 We expect the SEC Enforcement staff likewise will scrutinize the adequacy of disclosure in offering documents, including on the following topics: 

  • The SPAC sponsors’ obligations and allegiances to parties other than the SPAC and how those allegiances may affect their evaluation of a business combination, for example, relationships between the SPAC and target company and relationships between SPAC management and target management or any private investors; 
  • The economic interests of SPAC sponsors, especially their incentives to complete an acquisition within the specified time period, and their potential losses if one is not completed; 
  • The control that the SPAC’s sponsors, directors, officers and their affiliates have over approval of a business combination transaction;
  • The material economic terms of the securities held by a SPAC’s sponsors, directors, officers and affiliates, which can differ from (and potentially dilute the value of) the securities held by public shareholders; and 
  • The degree to which additional funding, including from the sponsors or their affiliates (such as other funds managed by the SPAC sponsors or their principals), may dilute shareholders’ interest in the combined company or may be provided in the form of a loan or security that has different rights from those of common shareholders.5

We anticipate the Division of Enforcement also will scrutinize generally whether the merger proxy or registration statement contains adequate disclosure about the contemplated business combination for SPAC shareholders to make informed decisions, both on whether to approve the transaction and on whether to redeem their shares. Unlike in a traditional IPO, where the market values the private company, in a de-SPACing transaction, the sponsor plays a significant role in determining the value of the target private company and deciding how much the SPAC will pay for it. The SEC likely will examine the basis for recommending the particular business combination, including valuation assessments, financial projections and statements about a target’s expected future prospects, and descriptions of the due diligence performed on the target company. 

The Enforcement staff also will likely scrutinize whether risks of nonperformance have been adequately identified. Where a target’s expected future performance turns on assumptions such as business pipelines, for example, the SEC staff likely will pay particular attention to whether those assumptions have been vetted and whether the risks have been adequately described. It is worth noting that it is uncommon for SPACs to receive fairness opinions on the valuations of the targets. In terms of prioritization, we expect the SEC Enforcement staff will focus on instances where the acquired company subsequently suffered material performance losses, both where the target company was relatively immature and thus had little history of financial performance and operation, and where the target was well-established and backed by well-known private equity companies. 

In addition, certain SPACs are associated with high-profile figures, including former politicians and athletes, either as part of the management team or as investors offering their endorsements. The SEC has made it clear that these arrangements, including payment for promotional activities or testimonials, must be adequately disclosed. The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy issued an investor alert earlier this month cautioning investors regarding the risks of investing in SPACs due to celebrity backing.6 This alert was similar to a November 2017 SEC release about risks associated with celebrity-backed initial coin offerings, which was a precursor to multiple enforcement actions related to celebrities touting ICOs.7 We expect Enforcement staff to scrutinize SPACs associated with celebrities to assure that any arrangements to compensate them for their role and endorsements are fully and fairly disclosed. We also anticipate the Enforcement staff will focus on the risk disclosures relating to the role, background and experience of celebrities identified as principals or otherwise associated with SPACs. 

Enforcement Risks for the Combined Public Company

The SEC staff statements issued on Wednesday foreshadow that Enforcement staff also will scrutinize whether the post-merger public operating company is abiding by the myriad rules and regulations governing public companies and intended to offer investor protection.8 These statements emphasized that, as of the merger, the combined public company must have the necessary personnel, processes and controls in place to produce high quality financial reporting,  comply with disclosure requirements, and operate with effective board oversight.9

We expect Enforcement staff to probe whether these combined public companies have implemented reasonable systems of internal controls over financial reporting and disclosure, maintain adequate books and records, and have effective corporate board oversight, including by the audit committee. The Enforcement staff will likely focus on situations where the de-SPAC company fails to meet reporting deadlines, adhere to SEC reporting rules and disclosure requirements, or adopt the accounting standards required of a public company. We also anticipate Enforcement staff will scrutinize the strength of the external audit process and auditor independence in de-SPAC mergers.  

Enforcement Risks for Underwriters and Broker-Dealer Distributors of SPACs 

Recent press reports on requests for information made by the SEC’s Division of Enforcement suggest that underwriters of SPAC IPOs, investment bankers to SPACs and targets, and PIPE placement agents will also be a focus of the SEC and FINRA’s scrutiny. The SEC and FINRA view these intermediaries as fulfilling important gatekeeping roles.

The SEC is likely to evaluate potential misrepresentations and omissions in offering documents, road show and investor presentation materials, and other disclosures on topics such as fees associated with SPAC transactions and control of funds raised in SPAC offerings. We expect the Enforcement staff to evaluate whether broker-dealers have taken reasonable steps to monitor the materials used by firms to assure that they provide an accurate and balanced description of the offering.10 

Relatedly, in February 2021, FINRA identified risks related to SPACs among the emerging anti-money laundering (AML) and financial crime risks that it highlighted for the industry.11 FINRA noted that some firms have been engaging in the formation and IPO of SPACs without written supervisory procedures requiring member firms to “independently conduct[] due diligence” of SPAC sponsors and address other fraud risks, such as representations about the target company’s financial condition and prospects.12 We expect FINRA to make this area a priority in its own risk monitoring and enforcement program. 

Further, we note that the SEC wields new authority for any recommendations made by broker-dealers to retail customers under the SEC’s new Regulation Best Interest.13 Regulation Best Interest’s care obligation requires broker-dealers and their associated persons, in making recommendations to “retail customers” (as defined), to exercise reasonable diligence, care and skill to, among other things, have a reasonable basis to believe that the recommendation is in the best interest of a particular retail customer based on that retail customer’s investment profile and the potential risks, rewards and costs associated with the recommendation and does not place the financial or other interest of the broker, dealer, or such natural person ahead of the interest of the retail customer.14  Regulation Best Interest also requires broker-dealers and their associated persons to disclose all material conflicts of interest associated with a transaction.15 We expect the SEC Examination and Enforcement staff to evaluate whether recommendations to retail customers to invest in SPACs satisfy the Regulation Best Interest requirement.

Finally, we expect broker-dealers in multi-service firms to face Enforcement inquiries related to potential co-investment in the different stages and levels of the capital structure involving affiliated invested investment companies and investment advisers.16

Potential Insider Trading Inquiries 

The Enforcement staff also can be expected to look for unusual trading patterns that could indicate leaks of material non-public information (MNPI) in the context of SPAC deals. Directors, management and employees of the sponsor likely possess MNPI at various stages of their search for an acquisition, and it is common for SPAC sponsors to be negotiating with the SPAC’s business combination target and simultaneously marketing the SPAC’s PIPE confidentially. Likewise, directors, managers and employees of the target will often have MNPI with respect to a potential business combination transaction with a SPAC in which they are involved, and underwriters may possess such information during diligence, underwriting and financial advisory activities. We expect these circumstances to give rise to potentially complicated insider trading probes.

***

The recent information requests made by SEC’s Division of Enforcement to financial institutions and statements by the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance and Office of the Chief Accountant foreshadow that significant regulator attention will be devoted to SPAC transactions and the resulting public operating companies. With the explosion in the profile and volume of SPACs, we expect the SEC will devote significant time to examining each stage of a SPAC transaction and every type of participant in these deals. Careful attention should be paid at each step of the process to identify actual or potential conflicts of interest and other risks, in order to ensure that investors have adequate and complete information to make their investment decision. WilmerHale will be monitoring these developments closely.

EDENVILLE TWP, MI – Longtime Midland County resident Melissia Shuler spoke with tears in her eyes as she walked through an area ravaged by flood waters.

“It’s devastating, absolutely devastating,” Shuler said on the morning of Wednesday, May 20, the day after the Edenville Dam and the Sanford Dam burst. “Bring tears to your eyes. Pray for Midland.

Shuler lives in Hope Township, just east of Edenville Township. She and about two dozen other residents gathered on Wednesday morning in what was once Lake Wixom, now with its water greatly reduced. The lake in this area – right next to Edenville Town Hall and Curtis Road to the south – almost looks like a river now, due to its flowing water, mud and sand.

A few people were rescuing fish washed up on the shore, putting them back in the water. Others have explored the damage.

“Last night was really scary,” Shuler said. “I have family who live by the lake. Most were evacuated. We’re high enough above that we don’t have to evacuate, but just to see the devastation, it’s… it’s going to take years to rebuild, absolutely. It’s very sad. Anguishing. “

After speaking with MLive, Shuler and her husband Joe Shuler toured the wreckage to collect it together.

Daniel Ankoviak, a resident of Sanford for 20 years, stood over the Tittabawassee River on what remains of the West Curtis Road Bridge, inspecting the damage.

“I spoke to my insurance agent this morning and he told me that often homeowners would not cover this because it is considered (a) flood and unless you have flood insurance. , you probably won’t get much coverage on this, “Ankoviak said.” I hope it doesn’t, and if it does, I hope FEMA steps in and helps everything. the world and what they experienced at home. “

Only about half of the bridge remains standing, with fallen trees blocking its path. 50 to 100 foot slabs of concrete broke away from the structure to rest in the mud below. Dozens of people stood in the mud across the Ankoviak Bridge.

“It’s amazing what the power of Mother Nature can do,” Ankoviak said. “I watch and sit in my own backyard, watching the trees crumble, my boat takes off after being moored and floats freely on the lake. Now, come here and see what it’s done to other homes … It’s amazing the power of it.

Disabled Iraq War veteran Sean Worsley, who was arrested while driving in Pickens County in 2016 and charged with criminal possession of legally prescribed medical marijuana in his home state of Arizona, has was granted parole by the Alabama Pardons and Parole Board on Wednesday after being in jail for more than eight months.

With illegal marijuana in Alabama, Worsley, a recipient of Purple Heart, was sentenced to five years in prison. On September 23, he was transferred from the Pickens County Jail to the Draper Correctional Facility.

Parole was granted with special conditions – that Worsley undergo a drug test upon his release.

“I’m so excited,” his wife Eboni said. “Now we are waiting to find out when he will be released physically and we can start living again.”

Eboni received the news Wednesday afternoon while on the phone with Worsley’s mother, who was scanning the parole hearing minutes. She said, ‘They granted it! “” shared Eboni.

She immediately called Worsley and relayed the news to him.

“He was so relieved he almost cried,” Eboni said. “I said to him, ‘Bless God and give him glory, give thanks. “

Worsley, 34, suffers from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and head trauma. He has seizures, suffers from chronic back and shoulder pain, struggles with nightmares and sleep disturbances. [his] service-related disabilities ”.

Sean and Eboni were crossing our state on Route 82 on their way to surprise relatives in North Carolina, including Sean’s young son. They had deer feet in the trunk, beer, and a special vodka for Eboni’s father. They were also going to see Sean’s grandmother’s house in Tarboro, North Carolina, which was flooded during Hurricane Matthew.

The couple stopped for gas in Gordo, just outside Tuscaloosa. It was about 11 p.m. They caught the attention (and the ear) of a local police officer, Carl Abramo, as Sean, in a good mood that day, stepped out of the passenger side and started playing air guitar. too loud music from the car. “He was laughing and joking and staring at the driver while doing all of this,” read the police report, obtained by Alabama Appleseed.

Abramo, who is white, said the loud music violated a local noise ordinance. He also smelled marijuana and asked to search the car, according to news reports.

Worsley, who is Black, asked Eboni to turn the music down. He said yes. He told Abramo he was a disabled veteran and showed the officer the medical card for the various strains of marijuana kept in several small containers in the car.

Abramo arrested the Worsleys and struck them on several counts, some simply because they had alcohol in their possession; Unfortunately, Pickens County is still mostly dry. The officer also found rolling papers and a scale. Not unusual; Usually, medical marijuana users measure uses. Yet rather than being charged with misdemeanors as first-time marijuana offenders, Sean and Eboni were charged with a felony because, well, our state’s police officers have the discretion to do so if they do. think the drug is for “other than personal use.” . “

Abramo did it.

So began the nightmare.

The Worsleys were released on bail and returned to Arizona. One year, however, the link was inexplicably revoked, and Sean and Eboni had to drive frantically overnight to avoid being charged with not appearing in court.

After the couple were separated and questioned separately, Sean signed a plea agreement (60 hours of probation, drug treatment and $ 3,388.40 in fines and costs) to have all charges against Eboni dropped. . Two years later, however, the Worsleys’ life was stuck in a Byzantine path. Sean’s brain injury affected his short-term memory; he endured episodes of depression, back pain and shoulder pain. In 2015, the Veteran’s Health Administration (VHA), Appleseed.org said he needed a caregiver because of his impulsivity, cognitive issues, and other issues. Eboni, whom he married in 2012, was that caregiver.

In early 2019, the Worsley, Arizona probation officer cited him for “failure to appear” or “payment of court-ordered amounts.” He couldn’t afford the $ 250 to renew the medical marijuana card. In Alabama, a felony arrest warrant had been issued against him for inadvertently missing a court date in Pickens County. The tenure prompted VA to cut Sean’s benefits.

Earlier this year, in Arizona, Sean was arrested during a routine traffic stop. He nervously spoke to the officer about the medical marijuana in his possession, his PTSD and other medical issues, his expired card and the warrant. When police contacted Alabama, the state ordered Worsley’s extradition, at a cost of $ 4,345.

Upon his return, Worsley was incarcerated.

“My faith in THE MOST HIGH was further strengthened in demonstrating how the law works in Alabama to help and not harm people through the parole board,” Eboni said. “We are grateful that we can pick up the pieces and start rebuilding our lives once Sean is released. I am so grateful to the Alabama Parole Board for showing the public the heart of the warm and welcoming spirit of the people. whom I have encountered since my transition to Alabama.

A GoFundMe site has been set up for the Worsleys, who have moved to the Birmingham area.

Former Newcastle United lender Kenedy insists his time at Tyneside has been a “great experience” as he prepares to face Manchester United with Granada.

The Brazilian midfielder had two loan spells with the Magpies under Rafa Benitez – but they were remarkably different.

Kenedy, who is still a Chelsea player despite only making 27 first-team appearances for the Blues since signing in 2015, made the temporary move to Newcastle in January 2018.

Under Benitez, he may have shown one of the best forms of his career and has become a key part of the Magpies squad, scoring twice in a 3-0 win over Southampton.

This form persuaded United to bring him back to the club on a one-season loan the following quarter, but the move was less successful.

In only the second game of the campaign, he capped a poor performance with a missed last-minute penalty in Cardiff, and his form dropped considerably from there.

Although he made 28 appearances, most of them were on the bench, and United did not follow the initial interest, allowing him to return to Chelsea.

Loans to Spanish La Liga followed and, following a stint at Getafe, Kenedy once again shows his best with Granada, helping them reach the Europa League quarter-finals where they face Manchester United.

And speaking to Spanish media AS, he recalled his time in the Premier League – and Newcastle – with fond memories.

“Another great experience,” he said when asked about his loan to Tyneside.

“I had more match streaks and enjoyed a bit more. Spain and Brazil are different leagues from England, which have faster football. Here, it’s more head, thinking.”

However, he is now very happy with Granada and admits he is “having my best time”.

“When they called me I was very happy,” he added. “When I arrived, it was a spectacle. Everyone treated me really well, the staff, the players. I arrived here and it seemed to me that it was a long time.

“I am having my best time here in Granada. I am very happy and very happy with the season and my best version. I am very well and happy with the whole group which helps me a lot ”.

Kenedy of course scored for Newcastle against Manchester United, as the Magpies led 2-0 at Old Trafford in October 2018, only for the Red Devils to win 3-2.

And he looks forward to their Europa League clash, with the first leg at Granada’s Estadio Los Carmenes on April 8.

“How can I explain it? ” he said. “It will be a very good game. A different and unique party.”

By Matthew Santoni (February 5, 2021, 8:43 p.m. EST) – Student loan manager Navient should not be able to stay a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau lawsuit pending an appeal to the Third Circuit because questions about the constitutionality of the agency’s setup had legitimately stopped the limitation period for claims against the company, and there was no precedent to say otherwise, the CFPB argued in federal court in Pennsylvania.

New Orleans celebrates with Mardi Gras-style ‘house floats’ due to canceled parades https://japononline.net/new-orleans-celebrates-with-mardi-gras-style-house-floats-due-to-canceled-parades/ https://japononline.net/new-orleans-celebrates-with-mardi-gras-style-house-floats-due-to-canceled-parades/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 02:37:21 +0000 https://japononline.net/new-orleans-celebrates-with-mardi-gras-style-house-floats-due-to-canceled-parades/ Mardi Gras is February 16 of this year, and while it hasn’t been canceled, the parades that have long been associated with it have been.

Mardi Gras is February 16 of this year, and while it hasn’t been canceled, the parades that have long been associated with it have been.

But don’t despair, after a spokesperson for New Orleans announced on Nov. 17 that the Mardi Gras parades in 2021 would not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic, a ‘domestic float’ move started almost immediately, reports NBC Connecticut.

All around New Orleans, thousands of homes are decorated as meticulously as the Mardi Gras floats that are typically created for the carnival season leading up to Mardi Gras.

To celebrate Mardi Gras, alternative activities were created including treasure hunts for the iconic trinkets typically thrown from the floats during the parade, outdoor art exhibits, smaller drive-thru or virtual parades, and concerts. .

When New Orleans resident Megan Joy Boudreaux heard the announcement of the cancellation, she jokingly posted on Twitter, “We are doing it. Turn your house into a chariot and throw all the pearls from your attic to your passing neighbors.

Then she decided it was actually a good idea, so she created a Facebook group called the Krewe of House Floats, only expecting a few friends and neighbors to join them. But it attracted a lot more than imagined.

At the official start of the carnival season on January 6, the group numbered more than 9,000 members, including “expatriates” from the United States and the world. About 3,000, including a few as far away as England and Australia, will have their homes on an official map online.

When the Krewe of House Floats visited on Wednesday, there were over 12,000 members. Under “About this group” is indicated:

“Krewe of House Floats is a brotherhood designed for the year without parades and for carnival at home. It might not be safe to have a ‘normal’ Mardi Gras, but we’ll find a way to celebrate!”

For those unfamiliar with Mardi Gras lingo, the krewe (pronounced “crew”) is a social organization that hosts a parade or other celebration for the carnival season. It is best associated with Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but is used in other Carnival celebrations around the world.

Another achievement stemming from the parade cancellation was how it would affect all businesses and individuals who derive a portion of their annual income from the parade. Boudreaux suggested that people could hire or buy from these artists and suppliers, so an artists and suppliers spreadsheet was created. One of them, artist Dominic “Dom” Graves, has booked over 20 courses for five people on professional papier-mâché techniques.

For people who are not tinkerers, lotteries funded by the crowdfunding “Hire a Mardi Gras Artist” have been set up and they have raised enough money to put teams to work to decorate 11 houses, as well. than for work ordered in two other houses and seven companies. . This put about 40 people to work.

Tom Fox, whose wife Madeline painted a scene from Spongebob Squarepants and made jellyfish from dollar store bowls, said he believes a new tradition may have started.

“Even when Mardi Gras returns, I think people will continue to do so,” he said.

Explained: Pros and Cons of the Low Interest Rate Regime https://japononline.net/explained-pros-and-cons-of-the-low-interest-rate-regime/ https://japononline.net/explained-pros-and-cons-of-the-low-interest-rate-regime/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 02:36:55 +0000 https://japononline.net/explained-pros-and-cons-of-the-low-interest-rate-regime/ The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday decided to leave key interest rates unchanged in its latest bimonthly policy review.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday decided to leave key interest rates unchanged in its latest bimonthly policy review. This is the sixth time in a row that the RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee has decided to hold rates.

The RBI kept the repo rate and the reverse repo rate at 4 percent and 3.35 percent, respectively. Economists generally expected the RBI to keep the repo rate unchanged.

Experts have said that a low interest rate regime is good for a recovering economy as it will lead to increased spending, consumption and growth.

Lower interest rates will encourage people to borrow and spend more. However, there are also drawbacks associated with low interest rates. Here’s all you need to know:

ADVANTAGES

Since the repo rate is at its lowest in the last two decades, it is simply good for people who want to borrow from banks. This means that people who want to borrow money from the bank will be able to get a lower interest rate.

It also means that equivalent monthly loan payments – tied to the marginal cost of funds (MCLR) based lending rate or external referral rates – will remain low for clients.

At a time when monthly household incomes have taken a hit due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this will be beneficial for individuals paying off existing home loans.

Lower interest rates will also have a positive effect on the real estate and housing industry, as more people will look to buy properties due to nominal borrowing rates. Likewise, it will also help the real estate industry.

Ankush Kaul, President (Sales and Marketing) – Ambience Group, said: “Mortgage interest rates in India have been the lowest over the past two years, resulting in a significant upturn in transactions across all sectors. housing categories – affordable, mid-range and luxury. As the umbrella bank has kept rates unchanged, we expect housing demand to continue on its upward trajectory in 2021, and the broadly positive economic indicators will further help homebuyers to close and finalize. “

DISADVANTAGES

While a low interest rate regime can lead to increased consumption and growth, it can seriously disrupt household savings.

Lower rates are bad for those earning interest on a savings account, term deposit, or any similar program offered by banks.

If interest rates stay low, these savings plans don’t generate decent returns. Simply put, higher interest rates will encourage savings as they will generate higher returns on investment in the programs offered by banks.

Since low interest rates will not attract higher investment, it could also lead to lower bank deposits and ultimately impact bank profitability. However, it can be noted that the volume of bank deposits is not always impacted by a low interest rate regime.
