London will be central to global financial markets whatever shape Britain's exit deal from the European Union (EU) takes, senior players in British banking said on Thursday. Barclays chairman John McFarlane said he was confident that London would remain a global financial centre able to secure access to Europe after Brexit.
About a year ago, Lloyds announced it was pulling 109 billion pounds ($145 billion) of assets that SLA managed on behalf of Lloyds’s Scottish Widows unit, saying the 2017 merger of Standard Life and Aberdeen created a “material” competitor to the lender’s own insurance business. The balance of the funds is pledged to BlackRock Inc.
PLC (LLOY.LN) said Tuesday that it will work with Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (SLA.LN) after losing a tribunal decision over the transfer of 100 billion pounds ($133 billion) in assets to rival fund managers.
Standard Life Aberdeen said it has won a legal battle to stop Lloyds cancelling a 100 billion pound ($133 billion) investment management contract early, a decision which could cost the bank hundreds of millions of pounds in extra fees. Lloyds had argued the 11 billion pound merger of Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management to form SLA in 2017 allowed it to end Aberdeen's 2014 contract to manage a large slice of its pension assets because it considered insurer Standard Life as a "material competitor". SLA's victory also raises the prospect that Lloyds will have to pay some or all of the 390 million pounds the asset manager would have earned under the terms of the contract due to expire in March 2022, even if it continues to transfer assets to BlackRock and Schroders.
Standard Life Aberdeen has won a legal battle to stop Lloyds Banking Group from terminating a 100 billion pounds ($132.75 billion) investment management contract three years early, in a move that could cost the bank hundreds of millions of pounds in additional fees. After a lengthy arbitration process, a tribunal has ruled that the bank was not entitled to give notice in February 2018 to terminate the 2014 investment management agreement, casting a pall over Lloyds' new partnership with BlackRock and a wealth management tie-up with Schroders.

A long-awaited probe into what Lloyds Banking Group executives knew about one of Britain's worst ever banking frauds is now not likely to be completed until next year, a source with knowledge of the review said. The investigation by retired high court judge Linda Dobbs was launched in 2017 to assess whether Lloyds properly investigated and reported the fraud at HBOS, which it bought in January 2009. Lloyds is paying for the review but has said its conclusions will be independent.
based in Scotland emailed three senior colleagues about an ongoing police investigation into an alleged fraud at the bank. Ms Masterton told the bankers — senior figures in the commercial lending division — how she had been urged by a senior colleague in the high risk unit to shred documents and delete electronic records in an unrelated case involving an HBOS client. The story Ms Masterton told shook the bankers.
Like its peers, Schroders suffered in the fourth quarter as market volatility prompted clients to withdraw funds, as the firm detailed in its full-year results on Thursday. At a time when fees for managing other people’s money are on a downward spiral everywhere you look, that’s a pretty good performance.

Lawmakers have criticised a move by Britain's Lloyds Banking Group to impose more expensive and complex overdraft fees on customers only months before a regulatory clampdown. Nicky Morgan, chair of the powerful Treasury Select Committee, said the charges by Britain's biggest domestic bank "fly in the face" of clarity and transparency. Lloyds, which has a 38 percent market share in basic bank accounts, began rolling out a tiered system of overdraft charges from last month, increasing charges for anyone borrowing less than about 4,100 pounds.
Bank of Ireland expects the profitability of its lending business to fall this year following a dip in the final quarter of 2018, as stiff competition in Britain offsets progress on costs and loan growth. Shares in Ireland's largest bank by assets fell as much as 8 percent on Monday after the bank also reported a smaller than expected pretax profit for last year. Bank of Ireland grew its loan book in 2018 for the first time in a decade, but said competition in the UK mortgage market, which accounts for almost a third of its total book, contributed to a fall in its net interest margin (NIM), a measure of lending profitability.
The top bosses of Britain's biggest banks are paid on average 120 times more than the median pay of their U.K. employees, bank documents have shown, as a new rule puts pay disparities at the country's big businesses under sharper scrutiny. Britain's biggest domestic lender Lloyds Banking Group has the starkest pay difference, with Chief Executive Antonio Horta-Osorio - the sector's highest-earning boss in 2018 - on 169 times as much as the median paid employee on 37,058 pounds, the company's annual report showed last Wednesday. The gulf widens to 237 times when compared with staff in Lloyds' lowest pay quartile, who received an average pay package of 26,490 pounds in 2018, compared with the 6.3 million pounds Horta-Osorio took home.

Britain's biggest mortgage lender posted a 24 percent rise in net profits to 4.4 billion pounds, below expectations of 4.6 billion pounds, according to a company-provided average of analyst forecasts.
