Big bankers headed for BoC board

first_imgBy George PsyllidesBANKING heavy-weight Josef Ackermann has been proposed as chairman of the Bank of Cyprus board of directors as new shareholders announced a list of candidates ahead of November’s annual general meeting.Ackermann, former CEO at Deutsche Bank, was proposed by major BoC shareholdersWilbur Ross and Tyrus Capital on Monday ahead of the November 20 AGM.“The new Board has been selected to add financial expertise and will better reflect the shareholder base following the recent stock issuance,” a written statement said.Ackermann joined Deutsche Bank’s board of managing directors in 1996, where he was responsible for the investment banking division.Prior to Deutsche Bank, Ackermann was president of Schweizerische Kreditanstalt (SKA), today’s Credit Suisse.He held numerous board positions including sitting on the board of directors at Zurich Insurance Group, Royal Dutch Shell plc and Siemens AG, among others.Ackermann would be joined by Arne Berggren, nominated independently by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; Maksim Goldman, a director of strategic projects at Renova; John Hourican, BoC CEO; Christakis Patsalides, BoC finance director; Wilbur Ross, chairman of WL Ross & Co; Michael Spanos, a former director of the Central Bank of Cyprus; Vladimir Strzhalkovskiy, vice chairman of the BoC board; Ioannis Zographakis, chairman of the BoC audit committee; and Marios Kalochoritis, director of the Bank of Cyprus.“This group intends to elect Ackermann as non-executive chairman of the board and Messrs. Ross and Strzhalkovskiy as vice-chairmen,” the statement added.Only Strzhalkovsky and Zographakis remain from the old board, which had been headed by Christis Hassapis.Strzhalkovskiy currently serves as vice chairman of the board. He held the position of deputy minister of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation for four years (July 2000-November 2004).The Bank of Cyprus AGM in November is expected to approve the new board.Board memberships are subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Cyprus.The BoC board can have up to 13 members.Ross and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development had taken part in a recent €1.0 billion capital increase that saw new shareholders control some 47 per cent of its stock.The lender is trying to get back on its feet following the island’s messy bailout in March 2013.The terms included closure of Laiki Bank, the island’s second biggest, and seizure of deposits to recapitalise BoC.Last week, Moody’s ratings agency said BoC’s successful capital raise was a positive step towards the lender’s regeneration, but it continued to face acute challenges as non performing loans (NPLs) were expected to rise further.“The strengthened capital buffers bolster the bank’s loss-absorbing capacity and are a positive step towards the bank’s regeneration,” Moody’s said. “But the extent to which these developments will lead to a sustained improvement in the bank’s financial performance remains unclear, given the acute asset quality pressures the bank faces and its low provisioning against losses from problematic exposures.”  BIOS of the nominees as they were received by the Cyprus MailDr. Josef AckermannNon-Executive Chairman NomineeDr. Josef Ackermann is the former chairman of the management board and the group executive committee at Deutsche Bank.

promised to do everything in his power to help disgraced paceman Mohammad Amir realise his full potential after the bowler was granted a visa for the team’s upcoming tour of England Amir will return to England six years after a spot-fixing scandal in a Lord’s Test resulted in bans and jail sentences for the then teenage bowler and his former team mates Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif "He served his time he’s done it" Arthur who coached Amir at Karachi Kings in Pakistan Super League (PSL) said in his first news conference since succeeding Waqar Younis in the post Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir Getty Images "I had Amir in the PSL he was a fantastic professional "Other stuff is not relevant to me The stuff that’s relevant to me is making Mohammad Amir the best he can possibly be as a cricketer" Amir’s return after serving a five-year ban was initially resented by some of his team mates but the 24-year-old left-arm paceman has enjoyed steady support from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) "People can say what they like it’s got nothing to do with me" Arthur said "If Mohammad Amir is picked in the Pakistan cricket team which he has been for the England tour it’s my role as head

Delhi and Beijing are inextricably linked to the strength of their national energy sectors As the economies of the BRIC nations continue to growtheir energy demand will rise sharply According to data from the US governments Energy Information Administrationby 2025 the BRICsled by Chinawill account for nearly 38 per cent of global primary energy demandup from 27 per cent in 2005 Some of its members will manage surging energy demand better than the others Owing to their advantageous resource endowments and the nature of their energy consumptionBrazil and Russia are relatively energy-secure nations In 2011Russia and Brazil were the second and ninth largest producers of oil respectively Last yearRussia was the worlds fifth-largest producer of coal and the worlds largest producer and exporter of natural gas For its partBrazil is almost entirely dependent on hydropower for electricity generationand recent offshore oil discoveries may soon catapult it into the ranks of major oil exporters China and India are less self-sufficientbut superior infrastructure and a centralised government position China better to meet its rising energy demand India has the most unstable energy condition in the BRIC cluband possibly the most uncertain energy future of all The scale of the energy dilemma is not newnor are the problems and the solutions Indian policymakers were aware of the countrys crippling energy shortages decades before the mass blackouts that occurred this July Policymakers know that power plants are starved of coal and natural gasthat subsidies promote waste and inefficient consumption and that electricity theft is rampant Pricing reform and better enforcement of electricity theft are still two critical solutions To its creditrecent reforms announced by the government suggest that policymakers are refocused on modernising Indias energy policy Howeverthese same politicos have in the past implemented marginal reformswhile neglecting to implement transformative reforms that truly attract investment Todaypolicymakers would be well served not to repeat such an error The emerging global energy landscape and the new wave of consumers promise a sustained period of expensive energy The new global energy gluttonsa group that includes IndonesiaMalaysiaSaudi ArabiaKuwait and the UAEare still considered lynchpins of global supplybut are concurrently grappling with surging domestic demand As a resultexport volumes from these nations are in decline For exampletake Saudi Arabiawhich accounted for one-fifth of Indias oil imports in 2011-12 Between 1991 and 2010global demand for oil increased by 31 per centand Saudi Arabias production increased by more than one million barrels per day During this same period (albeit with some fluctuations)howeverexports from the kingdom remained flat at 66 million barrels per day The natural gas market provides a similar picture: in the mid-1990s Indonesia and Malaysia accounted for roughly half of global LNG exports Todayboth countries are planning import facilities to meet growing demand Kuwait and the UAEboth considered energy-rich nationsimport LNG from as far away as Trinidad & Tobago to satisfy demand If nothing elsethis trend should crystallise for Indian policymakers the urgency of major pricing reforms In the short termthe oil price will reflect the prevailing macroeconomic and geopolitical winds at any given time In the long termhowevermost analysts forecast a consistent increase in the price of oil Similarlythe long-term trend suggests that natural gas prices will remain high Although GAIL is contracted to receive shipments of LNG from the United States at cheaper US pricessuch a contract structure will be the exceptionnot the norm Unlike CheniereGAILs American LNG suppliermost LNG producers are major oil and gas companies that need financing arrangements that justify investments in the exploration and production of natural gasas well as the construction of multi-billion dollar gas liquefaction facilities These financing realities suggest that oil-indexed contracts are likely to remain an integral component in global LNG trade Although macroeconomic headwinds in China have depressed coal prices this yearpricing reform in Indonesia and surging demand in southeast Asia suggest that coal prices will also remain competitive in the future In this contextinsufficient reforms will be costly Firstthe surging cost of imported gas and coalcoupled with stagnant domestic productionhave not only left power plants idle and bankrupted State Electricity Boards (SEBs)but they have also burdened the banking sector with a portfolio of non-performing loans Government efforts to bailout SEBs without dramatic changes to electricity pricing will hinder any lingering incentives to invest in new generationtransmission and distribution projects and may raise the borrowing costs for any new investments The new oil pricing reality is of greater concern Reform will not dramatically change Indias import dependence on oil; even increased production will not make India self-sufficient But nowamid ballooning fiscal deficits and jittery financial marketsmarket-determined prices are necessary to rid the government and the oil companies of unsustainable subsidies on their deficit-laden balance sheets Will such initiatives be too littletoo late for India Will its slowing growth and meandering energy and economic policies result in India becoming the first fallen angel among the BRIC nationsas Standard & Poorsa rating agencywarned in a June 2012 report Perhaps not Recent pro-reform messages from Delhi are promising But unlike Chinawhere the government can make unpalatable energy decisions relatively quicklyor

these words which offer only cold comfort When was the last time the Indian Parliament debated anything related to the internal affairs of an alien nation Forget alien nation the record of nearly 20-plus years shows that our political parties are busy pulling each other down in Parliamentary debates and very few if any of these debates have been about or in the Indian national interest or how to protect and defend it at all times in various spheres of activity on the global stage Is it perhaps this that gives a license to alien nations to have all sorts of debates about India with India issuing no rebuke or response to such “debates” It is also this that gives a meddling body like the USCIRF to pronounce pompous judgements about religious freedom in various nations including India In the specific case of the USCIRF India to its credit has consistently shown it its place However India was unable to question or reprimand some Indians who flew all the way to the US to testify in the USCIRF’s Kangaroo court about matters purely internal to India The latest in this line of prying in India’s internal affairs comes in the form of the 17 March 2016 UK House of Lords debate the gist of which is this: since the time Narendra Modi became India’s Prime Minister there has been a marked increase in violence against minorities of all hues freedom of expression of writers and artists have been threatened there is all-round intolerance and the BJP and its affiliates are making India “more Hindu” (whatever that means) None of this is new Indeed these are but mere outward manifestations of a discourse that was set in motion originally by the Communists whose antipathy towards anything Hindu or nationalistic is well-known and well-documented Equally well-documented is the fact that this sort of discourse seeks to drive a wedge between various sections of India—both religious and social It thus stands to reason that any party or organisation that has the Indian national interest in mind is met with fierce and vicious resistance and slander from the purveyors of the aforementioned discourse The 17 March debate in the House of Lords on religious freedom in India was first initiated by Lord Singh of Wimbledon and endorsed by Baroness Berridge Lord Hussain Lord (Bishop) Harries and Lord Ahmed Lord Singh a native of Rawalpindi and a long time British citizen (his parents migrated to the UK in 1933) is recognised widely as a prominent voice of the Sikhs in England From his presentation in the House of Lords debate it’s quite clear that he harbours irrational animus against Hindu groups dubbing everybody in the “extremist” bracket and blames them for every real and imagined wrongs done against the Sikhs in India While his concern for Sikhs is admirable and genuine he errs on the basics of his own faith and history when he claims that Today the pressure on Sikhs is more subtle but perhaps even more serious It is nothing less than an attempt to dilute Sikh identity and absorb the community into the Hindu fold…India’s constitution in which Sikhs are—without their consent—described as a subset of Hinduism…Sikhs are also frequently shown participating in Hindu religious ceremonies involving idol worship contrary to Sikh teachings The first Sikh Guru Nanak followed the path of the earlier Bhakti saints and continued the practice of chanting the name of the Divine “Rama Nama” either mentally or orally or both Writing in A Secular Agenda Arun Shourie notes that the Granth Sahib “invokes the name of Krishna ten thousand times of Rama two thousand four hundred times It invokes Parabrahma 550 times Omkar 400 times It invokes the authority of the Vedas Puranas Smritis about 350 times The names of the Nirguna Absolute – Jagdish Nirankar Niranjan Atma Paramatma Parmeshwar Antaryami Kartar – are invoked twenty six hundred times Those of Saguna deity – Gobind Murari Madhav Saligram Vishnu Sarangpani Mukund Thakur Damodar Vasudev Mohan Banwari Madhusudan Keshav Chaturbhuj etc – are invoked two thousand times” and how Guru Tegh Bahadur was “executed explicitly for his defence of the Hindus of Kashmir he is executed in the company of his Hindu devotees Guru Gobind Singh composes a paean to Rama – Ramavatara – and another to Krishna – Krishnavatara” Here is what Guru Gobind Singh also declares: Sakal jagat mein khalsa panth gaaje Jage dharma Hindu sakal bhand bhaje Let the path of the pure prevail all over the world Let the Hindu dharma dawn and all delusion disappear This apart here is what Maharaja Ranjit Singh who founded the greatest Sikh empire and carved out a separate Sikh state did: – He paid homage to Brahmins – He made cow slaughter a capital offence – He gave three times more gold to the Kashi Vishwanath temple than to the Har Mandir in Amritsar By today’s Communist-Left-Liberal standards and by Lord Singh’s own pronouncements these Sikh Gurus and Ranjit Singh will qualify as Hindu extremists or variations thereof It therefore behooves the good Lord Singh of Wimbledon to state the basis of his claims I would point him gently to the classic Hindu-Sikh Relationship by Ram Swarup Sikhism as a subset of Hinduism doesn’t mean that its identity is or will be subsumed by Hinduism It is as much a subset as any of the numerous panths margas sampradayas etc which have independent standing the proof of which lies in the enormous numbers of adherents each of these command even today And then Lord Singh goes on at some length to cite examples of how minorities in India under the Modi government are being persecuted feeling insecure etc by quoting instances of Church attacks and quotes the selfsame USCIRF “report” on religious freedom in India As to the Church attacks they have been shown to be the handiwork of thieves and vandals and in one case an employee who stole some money The Indian media which reported these incidents as the work of “Hindu extremists” stood exposed once again for its dubious journalism Let’s now examine what Baroness Berridge says in the debate The predominant religion of the Commonwealth is Hinduism a fact which derives directly from India’s membership The Commonwealth’s second most widespread religion Islam is also well represented in India with 172 million people… By 2050 India is predicted to have the largest Muslim population in the world India currently has the world’s largest populations of Sikhs Jains and Zoroastrians as well as substantial numbers of Christians and Buddhists and people of no religion at all India has more people who are not Hindus—a quarter of a billion—than most countries have people India’s religious diversity has always been part of its national identity and history Given all this it is defies logic how this Baroness doesn’t mention the fact that it is the all-accommodating nature of India’s majority religionists the Hindus who continue to allow and grant this freedom to these faiths Historically adherents of every persecuted religion on the planet found safe harbour in India be it the Jews or Zoroastrians Prime Minister Modi in the UK Parliament’s House of Lords AFP We also need to face the other uncomfortable historical truth that alien Muslim invasions since the 8th century and subsequent Muslim rule for about 800 years wreaked havoc on the native Hindu population tradition temples and way of life The Hindu response was one of resistance reclamation but most importantly toleration and digestion of such sustained attacks over this prolonged period Other countries have erupted in bloody wars and splintered for far less severe reasons Yet the learned Lord Singh finds it prudent to blame the current Indian government “to make India more Hindu” Now there’s no other way to say this: Lord Singh for all purposes is a British citizen and a Lord and reports to Her Majesty the Queen of England While this is not to take away from his concern for Sikhs it stands to reason that he cannot speak for the Sikhs in India much less comment on religious freedom in India It is purely a matter internal to India which has enough checks and balances and systems to deal with such issues He also cannot invoke the cloak of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights to condemn and/or interfere in India’s affairs or to demonise Hindu groups who have mostly been maligned unfairly Here’s a question: why has no Human Rights or other similar body sought justice for the 59 Hindu pilgrims roasted alive in a train coach and for the 254 Hindus who died in the Gujarat 2002 riots Lord Singh in his closing remarks claims Today I appeal to our Government to move from the usual anodyne comment that we take human rights very seriously… in giving a more robust condemnation to attacks on freedom of worship and human rights abuse regardless of the country in which it occurs In which case Lord Singh first needs to look in his own backyard where people of his own community are attacked by Muslim extremists and are targets of racism We can begin with this 2015 TheTelegraph report: British Sikhs are often the silent victims of any backlash against Islamic extremism…Last month during heighted community tensions post-Charlie Hebdo a Sikh was attacked with a machete in a Tesco store in Wales sustaining what police described as “life-changing injuries” The attacker was reported to shout “white power” … The first person to be murdered after the terror attacks in New York was a Sikh and the first place to be attacked after 7/7 was a gurdwara (Sikh temple) in Kent In 2012 there was a mass shooting of worshippers at a gurdwara in Wisconsin by a "white supremacist" Or perhaps Lord Singh is unaware of the extensive research done by the UK Sikh community on how a significant number of Sikh girls have become targets of Love Jihad Or of this incident where a Sikh man was burned alive in an arson attack May we also draw Lord Singh’s attention to the reasons for which a book like Londonistan gets written or the fact that 800 UK Muslims have travelled to fight for the ISIS or to his own Government’s 2011 report which identified 40 UK universities as the “breeding grounds for terror” Or to that gut-wrenching expose of the grooming of more than 1400 non-Muslim minor girls as sex slaves to “service” radical Islamists in Rotherham One can go on and on about the real appalling problems confronting England but these samples should suffice And in each of these cases the response of the British Government has ranged from whitewashing political correctness evasion silence and denial Lord Singh therefore needs to first adhere to the timeless dictum of a physician first healing himself before pointing fingers at the real or manufactured problems of other nations Towards the end of the House of Lords debate the Earl of Courtown claims that “The relationship between the United Kingdom and India is a partnership of equals” Which is interesting and amusing This relationship was never one of equals neither in the past when their traders came to India as supplicants to be allowed to trade and later realised that they were superior because of their skin colour which justified the oppression and plunder of India Today England is a struggling nation far gone in dealing with immigration terror cells soaring crime rapidly falling educational standards and jihadism It has been reduced to a country that largely survives by playing handmaiden to the US It’s clear that the UK needs India more than India needs it The kind of response that Prime Minister Narendra Modi received during his UK visit in November 2015 is just the latest proof of this fact India doesn’t need to take any lectures on religious freedom from such a nation What India should do instead is to respond to such House of Lords adventures strongly and ensure that repeat attempts are not made The US shows the way on how to do this When Tehelka published a 20-plus-page investigative report on the George Bush government’s covert support for evangelism in India in 2004 the press attache at the American embassy in Delhi immediately wrote a letter rebuking Tehelka thus: “I hope that in future issues Tehelka will take time to ensure that its material is not only ‘free and fairless’ but also responsible and objective” That is the mark of a nation which takes itself seriously and
