The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has released a set of proposals to help consumers tell the difference between banks. Customers, said the UK watchdog, have trouble distinguishing between competing firms, something that prevents them from switching to better options. Banks should make several pieces of information available to customers, including account opening time and the number of security breaches it has suffered.
Some of Europe’s biggest private banks are enjoying a sunny spell in the aftermath of the Brexit vote. Executives at UBS, Credit Suisse, Pictet and Société Générale spoke to the Financial Times, indicating their intention to accelerate investments and hire extra staff. Private bankers are in stark contrast to their investment colleagues, who are shifting assets out of London to avoid losing EU clients. The fall in value of the pound has seen assets become cheaper for foreign buyers.
Entitled. Lazy. Narcissistic. Me, me, me. If you threw those descriptors at anyone doing on the conference circuit in finance today they’d know exactly what you were talking about. “Millennials”, the tagline that’s a gift that keeps on giving for speakers and strategists. Banks “need” to target Millennials, they say. Give them selfie-pay, give them emoji-themed UIs, give them “bae” and “fleek” and watch them flock to your brand.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
