Banks and investment firms have to come up with more "creative solutions" to avoid misconduct as staff work from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Britain's Financial Conduct Authority said on Thursday. Britain told people to work from home from Thursday if possible as new cases of COVID-19 grow again. Megan Butler, executive director for wholesale supervision at the FCA, said firms have broadly managed conduct and other risks from remote working "pretty well so far".
NatWest Group Chief Executive Alison Rose said she was already thinking about how to prepare the state-baked lender for negative rates, although she still believed the monetary policy remained "hypothetical" for now. "I think the Bank of England have been clear it's one of a number of things in their toolkit," Rose told the Bank of America Financials conference on Tuesday. "Clearly, if negative rates come in, that would present a further challenge to our revenue outlook on top of the recent cutting of rates," she said.
Britain has taken robust action to crack down on dirty money in recent years, its government said on Monday in response to reports that HSBC, Barclays and other banks moved large sums of allegedly illicit funds despite red flags about the origins of the money. "Criminals should not be able to profit from their illegal activities in any circumstances, and we have taken robust action in recent years to crack down on dirty money," a government spokesperson said in a statement. Shares in HSBC and Standard Chartered fell on Monday to their lowest since at least 1998 after the media reports based on leaked suspicious activity reports filed by financial firms with the U.S. Dept of Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen).
