Wells Fargo reportedly exploring sale of asset management business

Wells Fargo plans to keep its wealth management business that caters to high-net worth clients, the sources said.

The asset management business, which is part of Wells Fargo’s wealth and investment management division, offers mutual funds and retirement products.

Scharf told analysts on the bank’s third-quarter earnings call this month that he expected to create some room on Wells Fargo’s balance sheet by exiting non-core businesses.

Wells Fargo’s asset management arm, which managed $578 billion on behalf of customers as of the end of June, could fetch more than $3 billion in a sale, two of the sources said Thursday.

Wells Fargo is exploring a sale of its asset management business, in what would be the bank’s biggest shake-up since former Bank of New York Mellon chief executive Charles Scharf joined as CEO last year, people familiar with the matter said.

BNDX: Key Shifts In Global Bond Market Are Taking Place (NASDAQ:BNDX

Overall, it seems that BNDX is headed lower soon, and that investors should limit exposure to the fund (and all long-term bonds, for that matter).

The most significant long-term risk to BNDX is a rise in inflation rates, since this would decrease the future value of money today.

Again, long-term bonds like those in BNDX usually rise when equities decline, since inflation falters, which pushes interest rates lower and encourages quantitative easing.

BNDX has significant loss potential in case long-term rates spike due to a liquidity event or inflation.

This has been a major reason investors have been buying long-term bonds over the past few years and, in doing so, have pushed yields below 1%.

Congress may not pass coronavirus relief deal until after Election Day, top negotiators say

CORONAVIRUS RELIEF TALKS HAVE ENTERED A 'NEW PHASE' AS DEMS, WHITE HOUSE LOOK TO CUT DEAL IN NEXT 48 HOURS: MEADOWS Democrats and Republicans sharply disagree over the size and scope of another relief bill and are billions of dollars apart in their proposals, unable to reconcile key policy differences on issues such as a virus testing plan, aid to state and local governments and tax cuts for low- and middle-income families.

Larry Kudlow, a top economic adviser to President Trump, echoed that sentiment last week during an interview with FOX Business, warning that it would be "almost impossible" to executive a relief package before the election, even if Congress overcame a monthslong impasse and reached an agreement on more aid.

TRUMP SAYS HE WANTS A BIGGER CORONAVIRUS RELIEF PACKAGE THAN PELOSI'S $2.2T PROPOSAL Asked Thursday on MSNBC whether there could be a deal before the election, Pelosi said: "We could do it in the House.

White House officials and Democratic leaders suggested this week that Congress may not pass a coronavirus relief deal until after the November election.

MCCONNELL URGES WHITE HOUSE NOT TO MAKE VIRUS RELIEF DEAL WITH PELOSI Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has also emerged as an obstacle in negotiations, privately urging the White House not to settle with Pelosi before the election amid concerns it could interfere with the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, two sources told Fox News.

Crown gets first strike, directors survive

On Wednesday, the casino inquiry was rocked by the revelation that Crown’s former executive chairman Rob Rankin may face prosecution by the corporate watchdog for failing to alert the casino giant's board in 2015 that there was a "high risk" its staff in China could be arrested, and for failing to tell the board about a threat made to businessman Ben Gray by billionaire James Packer.

Giving evidence at the NSW casino inquiry on Monday, Ms Connan conceded Crown's risk management failures had "facilitated" money laundering but said the casino operator had demonstrated it understood the need for change if it was going to retain its Sydney casino licence.

“In all of its history, Crown has never faced adversity like we are now – but I’d like to reassure all our investors, stakeholders and staff that the board is determined and willing to learn from the past,” Ms Coonan said.

Ms Coonan promised a full program of reforms at Crown, including strengthening its anti-money laundering processes and systems, changing its culture and renewing its board.

Crown chief executive Ken Barton, who also promised to lead the rebuilding of the group’s risk management culture, said that for main gaming floor revenue between the start of July and October 18 at Crown’s Perth casino had risen 16 per cent on the previous corresponding period, while non-gaming revenue was down approximately 21 per cent.

Trump Called The $10 Million A Loan. His Campaign Called It A Donation. Who Paid It Back, And How

The very existence of the loan was a closely guarded secret until this month, when a newly unsealed document indicated that Trump’s closest advisers convinced him to let the campaign borrow the money from him after he refused to just write a check.

Not long after the debate, Bannon, Jeff DeWit, the campaign’s chief operating officer; Brad Parscale, its digital media director; and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, put their heads together to discuss finances, according to the FBI’s account of a 2018 interview with Bannon that BuzzFeed News published this month.

At $10 million, the new loan Trump was being asked to make would be the single largest chunk of money he’d put into his campaign, and, based on Bannon’s recollections, the candidate was far from convinced.

To Fischer, of the Campaign Law Center, the idea that Trump would write a large check, sign documents characterizing it as a loan, then almost immediately recast it as a donation, “just doesn’t add up.”

If so, Trump waited at least two weeks to reverse course and donate the money, which would mean that at the time the campaign reported it, the $10 million donation should still have been characterized as a loan.

McConnell told his caucus Tuesday in a private lunch that he is encouraging the administration not to agree to a stimulus bill as he worries about dividing Republicans on major legislation days before an election, NBC News reported.

"With big differences and little time, it seems unlikely that Pelosi and Mnuchin will reach a deal before the election.

Her comments came after White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Tuesday that Pelosi and Mnuchin have made "good progress" on stimulus talks.

Stocks fell slightly on Wednesday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin continued their negotiations on a new fiscal stimulus package.

"The back and forth political discussions on the stimulus deal and continued election uncertainty give us extra justification for short-term market uneasiness," said David Bahnsen, chief investment strategist at The Bahnsen Group, which oversees $2.5 billion in client assets.

Bank of England policymaker warns of rising economic risks and job losses - as it happened

The deal forms the start of a borrowing binge that will make Brussels one of the region’s biggest debt issuers.

Investors placed bids for more than €230bn, far exceeding the €17bn of bonds on offer, according to one of the banks arranging the deal.

Buyers were drawn by the relatively high yields on the bonds, which came with 10-year and 20-year maturities, and offered more income for investors than the eurozone’s safest government debt.

Brussels will ramp up its debt issuance next year as it funds the larger €750bn coronavirus recovery package agreed in July.
