    Bank of England expects big Libor switch to start in earnest

    Financial markets should start accelerating efforts to ditch Libor in favour of the Bank of England's revamped interest rate benchmark being launched next week, a senior BoE official said. Banks have been fined around $9 billion for trying to rig Libor, or London Interbank Offered Rate, prompting the BoE and other central banks to come up with their own "risk free" substitutes that are more difficult to manipulate. Last year, banks and other market participants in London backed the daily Sonia or Sterling Overnight Index Average as a substitute for sterling-denominated Libor to price trillions of pounds in swaps and derivatives contracts.

    ICE Europe says could make Brexit changes quickly

    The shift in contracts from London to New York earlier this year showed how the transatlantic Intercontinental Exchange (ICE.N) could respond rapidly to Brexit if need be, the bourse's European head said on Wednesday. ICE moved 245 derivatives contracts on North American oil and gas liquids to satisfy U.S. customers who did not want to comply with MiFID II, a sweeping European Union reform of securities markets that came into force in January. "We don't have any immediate plans for further contracts to move," Stuart Williams, president of ICE Futures Europe, told Reuters.

    [$$] Cameron cautions against rush to elections in fragile nations

    It can be a mistake to push fragile countries into “winner take all” democratic elections, said David Cameron, ahead of a new report that seeks to turn long-held assumptions about foreign interventions “entirely on their head”. Mr Cameron said there was a “total lack of realism” among developed countries and donors when it comes to assisting countries blighted by economic failure and conflict. “We have overloaded [fragile countries] with our own unachievable priorities, rather then focusing on a few simple things like security and economics,” he said.

    Goldman's Schwimmer to steer London Stock Exchange through Brexit

    The London Stock Exchange (LSE.L) named Goldman Sachs' veteran David Schwimmer as chief executive officer on Friday, with an initial challenge of helping the 300-year-old institution to navigate Brexit.

Schwimmer, a 49-year old New Yorker who has been with Goldman for 20 years and most recently served as global head of market structure and global head of metals and mining in investment banking, takes up the role at the start of August.
