    Barclays, BNP Eye Goldman's Playbook for Private Debt

    BNP Paribas could raise outside money for its first such fund, known as a direct-lending fund, as soon as this year, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. Discussions at Barclays are more preliminary, but any fund set up could offer a broad range of financing options, according to separate people. The banks are considering following the lead of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which decades ago set up a direct lending arm that has helped it win fees.

    OPEC Risks Gambling Away Success Again as $80 Oil Looms

    In the first quarter, coordinated production curbs by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies helped oil rally the most in almost a decade, restoring prices to over $70 a barrel. Saudi Arabia, the group’s most powerful member, has made clear that it’s determined to keep supplies tight. OPEC and its partners launched a new round of output cuts at the beginning of the year when it looked like booming U.S. shale-oil production and fragile global demand growth would lead to a supply surplus.

Chinese data showed exports rebounded in March, lifting U.S. and euro zone bond yields to three-week highs and helping offset weaker imports and reports of another cut to German growth forecasts.

    Hong Kong regulator says ESG funds must justify their green credentials

    Hong Kong's securities regulator has told funds who claim to consider environmental, social or governance (ESG) factors in their investment decisions to make it clear to their investors how it is they do so. The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) said in a Thursday circular that a majority of the more than 20 funds it has authorised that claim an investment focus on ESG do not specifically disclose how they incorporate such factors into their investment selection process. Under the new rules, funds that say in their name or their investment strategy that they follow ESG or green principles must provide documents to investors that describe their investment focus, their selection criteria and evaluation methodology, among others.

    Nomura Chief Risk Officer, Senior Traders Exit

    The departures, part of Nomura’s plan announced last week to cut costs in its global trading and investment banking operations by $1 billion in coming years, are focused on the Japanese firm’s secondary business in fixed income, currencies and emerging markets. Chief Executive Officer Koji Nagai is pivoting toward what he calls “client-focused” businesses, such as advisory, which tend to be less volatile. Nomura’s latest overhaul will lead to about 150 job losses across the U.S. and Europe, people with knowledge of the matter have said.

    Big Foreign Banks Could Face New Risk Rules Under Fed's Plan

    Fed board members voted 4-1 on Monday to seek comment on its plan for a new system that closely matches the overhauled domestic-bank framework proposed in October. Depending on what final calculations the Fed lands on, several foreign lenders -- including Deutsche Bank, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc., Mizuho Financial Group Inc. and Toronto-Dominion Bank -- could be slotted into the second tier, just below a group of U.S. banks with massive global footprints.

    Fed cuts red tape but toughens liquidity rules for foreign banks

    Some large foreign banks operating in the US face having to hold more liquid assets under a regulatory shake-up proposed on Monday by the Federal Reserve. The changes to the post-crisis rule book would reduce capital requirements and frequency of stress tests for many institutions, but they also tighten liquidity rules for a list of banks that could include Barclays, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank. Whereas for domestic banks the changes largely came as a relief from the post-crisis Dodd-Frank legislation, the outcome is more complex for foreign banks, some of which are set to gain while others are likely to lose out.

    Nine banks win dismissal of Iran terrorism financing lawsuit -US judge

    A U.S. judge has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to hold nine large European banks liable for allegedly providing banking services to Iran that enabled militants to conduct 55 attacks against U.S. armed forces in neighboring Iraq. In a decision on Thursday, U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain in Manhattan said the banks' alleged misconduct was too far removed from the attacks, which occurred from 2003 to 2011, to support civil liability under federal anti-terrorism laws. The U.S. Department of State has designated Iran a state sponsor of terrorism since 1984.

    Fannie Bond-Rigging Suit Lists 27 Traders Without Accusing Them

The 27 traders, referred to as “key personnel” on those bond desks, aren’t named as defendants in the suit, brought by the Alaska Electrical Pension Fund in Manhattan federal court. Bloomberg reported last June that the Justice Department had opened a criminal investigation into whether some traders manipulated prices in the market for unsecured bonds, known as agencies, issued by the government-backed companies.
