Robin Osmond, a former head of global investment banking at Morgan Stanley, is leaving to “pursue other opportunities in the City”, LMAX said in a statement.Betfair, which owns a majority 75 per cent stake after investing £25m in the start-up, said it remained “fully committed to LMAX”. But the departure of Osmond so soon after the platform was launched for retail investors is sure to raise questions among some in the City, especially after Betfair declined to give details of LMAX’s progress when it unveiled its maiden results as a public company early last month. Yesterday, sources close to the firm were playing down expectations for LMAX’s trading so far, insisting it was “still very early days”. Osmond will be replaced by David Mercer, who will become interim chief executive with immediate effect. Most recently, Mercer worked at specialist forex and derivatives provider Velocity Trade. City A.M. understands that while Betfair was happy with the technical performance of LMAX under Osmond, it felt Mercer had more appropriate commercial experience. Prior to Velocity Trade, Mercer had spells at IFX Markets, City Index and Saxo Bank.

first_img FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address If I had £500 to invest today in UK shares, where would I look? A lot of companies draw my attention. But there’s one in particular that I have my eye on at the moment and would consider buying.That company is JD Sports Fashion (LSE: JD). Here are three reasons I would consider adding it to my portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Proven business modelThe company has proven its business model over the years. Its 2020 revenues of £6.1bn were 795% of the 2010 figure. Pre-tax profit of £349m was 567% of the 2010 level. That strong growth in a decade would be the envy of many retailers. At a time when online competition has hurt some competitors, JD has continued to perform well both in its physical estate of over 2,400 stores and online.As well as the JD Sports brand itself, the company operates stores and webstores under a range of names. It has shops in markets across western Europe, the US and Southeast Asia. That gives it a wealth of understanding of emerging trends and customer needs, which I regard as a competitive advantage.More recently, the pandemic has hit performance. But in its interim results it still reported a profit, albeit smaller than the prior year. That helps explain why these UK shares have risen 48% over the past year.A UK share with demand headwindsI think the company’s growth demonstrates its ability to benefit from shifts in customer demand. That is not by accident, but because it has focused on optimising its brand portfolio and product ranges. Sportswear can be fast-changing, but JD has stayed relevant.I see considerable further growth drivers here. A move to more casual workwear while people worked from home during the pandemic could benefit the sportswear market if it persists. Additionally, a growing interest in outdoor activities from cycling to walking is also likely to boost demand in the coming years.New business areasWhile I like the company for its retail strength, I am attracted by its wider footprint too.For example, JD runs a chain of gyms in the UK. It built critical mass last year by buying 50 gyms after their owner fell into administration.Gym businesses often struggle to survive in economic downturns. So why would I be enthusiastic about JD’s “premium low-cost proposition that competes strongly with mid-market and premium gyms”? I see cross-selling opportunities between the retail business and gyms. I also think running gyms helps give JD a deeper understanding of its target customer base. With its proven retail prowess, I think that could help sustain its growth.JD Sports share price risksSpending £500 on a single share doesn’t offer diversification. I would only spend £500 on these UK shares because I already have other shares in my holdings which help me lower my risk by diversification.There are still risks if I decide to buy JD Sports shares. One of these is the rise of Amazon. JD’s digital performance is strong, but it’s still a small operator compared to the global heft of Amazon. That could hurt profitability in the industry as a whole, affecting JD.

first_imgSaturday Jun 13, 2009 The British & Irish Lions snatch the win over Western Province The British & Irish Lions made it five out of five at Newlands as they snuck home with a 26-23 win over a well structured and determined Western Province in Cape Town.Wing Tommy Bowe had another classy performance, scoring a try and then setting up flying colleague Ugo Monye with a lovely pass. Martyn Williams also crossed, as Stephen Jones got two penalties and two conversions.For the home side Willem De Vaal commanded well from flyhalf, adding two penalties and a drop goal to go with the one from fullback Joe Pietersen, who also finished off a classy try.It was one of the better matches weve seen so far on this tour, with a rainswept Newlands providing a great atmosphere as the locals got behind their beloved side who refused to give in.It was the bruising matchup that the Lions perhaps desired ahead of the Test series, as Western Province stood up in the physicality stakes and did their utmost to silence the touring British & Irish supporters.A late James Hook 50m penalty was ultimately the difference between the two sides, as the Lions have once again come close to a tour loss, but managed to produce just enough to maintain that unbeaten record.“I’m glad to have won my first match as Lions captain,” said prop Phil Vickery who captained the side on the day.“It was a great game, played in a great spirit, with lots of physicality. This was traditional Lions rugby.

All these spaces are open towards the opposite side with sliding carpentry that “disappear”, allowing total integration with the exterior.

The rest of the ground floor is completed with the parking space, the laundry room, and a service bathroom. In addition, the concrete wall serves as a support for the furniture and the staircase while protecting the privacy of the houseThe upper floor consists of two white boxes with sloping ceilings connected by a wooden bellow where a small study, the arrival of the staircase and the corridor come together.

first_img USDA Disputes Intent of Leaked E-mail Statement from USDA spokesperson on conference spending in a letter from Senator Coburn: By Gary Truitt – Mar 6, 2013 SHARE Importantly, USDA has aggressively managed travel, conference and administrative costs to achieve $700 million in new efficiencies, savings, and cost avoidances during the last three fiscal years. Several reports yesterday misrepresented a USDA effort to explain the impacts of budget cuts to an employee in USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). Here are the facts: Recently, a member of the APHIS field staff suggested to the agency’s budget officers that budget cuts in the APHIS Wildlife Services program could be spread out across 24 states in a particular region in order to avoid furloughs.  The budget officers explained that the employee’s suggestion had already been communicated to Congress as part of the Administration’s FY2013 budget proposal and will be included as part of the sequestration plan. The communication with Congress referenced in the email was about the FY13 budget, not about the impacts of sequester. To be clear, the APHIS budget officer explained that USDA is already proposing these steps in order to avoid furloughs. USDA is committed to doing all we can to minimize the impact of sequester our employees and the farmers, ranchers, and rural communities we serve.  USDA does not provide financial support for the Priester Health Extension Conference and we have asked the organizers to remove our logo from the website. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Press reports surfaced Wednesday of an email from a USDA field officer is reportedly showed support claims that the President is trying to make sequestration as painful as possible for political gain. Late Wednesday afternoon USDA contadcted HAT to dispute the alogations. Subsequently the agency released the following statement. While employee conferences have decreased significantly in recent years, farmers, ranchers and other constituents benefit from many conferences and forums because they provided access to experts, new research and other practices to strengthen the rural economy.
