Realtors' rising cash-crunch poses more risks to banks: report 19.9.2019
Mumbai: Default by real estate-focused non-banking financier Altico Capital indicates the rising cash crunch with the developers, which is credit negative for banks given their exposure to the realty sector, warns a report. Poor liquidity had last week forced Altico Capital to default on an under-Rs 20-crore scheduled interest payment on an ECB loan from Masherq Bank of the UAE. Banks' exposure to Altico, which owes over Rs 4,500 crore to the credit market, is fairly modest and accounts for less than 0.1 percent of total banking system loans. Altico's default comes after Dewan Housing Finance, with significant exposure to real estate developers, defaulted on its loan obligations from June because of insufficient liquidity, raising questions about its solvency. "Altico default signals increasingly tight liquidity among property developers, which is credit negative for banks given their significant exposure to the real estate sector," global rating agency Moody's said in a report ...

France fights startup drain with $5.5 billion 19.9.2019
Paris: How do you stop European tech firms from moving to the US once they start eyeing the big time? Part of the solution is finding them access to funding at home. French President Emma-nuel Macron has made the continent's latest move to muster help for homegrown start-ups, promising five billion euros ($5.5 billion) of tech investments over the next three years. The funds, pledged by banks, insurers and other big investors, include two billion euros earmarked for "late stage" projects requiring significant amounts usually out of reach to EU firms. "The battle we're fighting is one of sovereignty," Macron told tech executives and venture capitalists at an Elysee Palace dinner on Tuesday. "If we don't build our own champions in all new areas—digital, artificial intelligence—our choices... will be dictated by others," he said. Officials across Europe fear being left behind as American giants, and more recently Chinese firms, increasingly dominate ...
