Fines levied by the Financial Conduct Authority have plummeted by nearly 90% since the shock departure of its former chief executive in 2015, raising questions the financial watchdog has become too lenient on the City. According to analysis of published FCA data given exclusively to Financial News, the regulator has issued just £347m of fines in the 28 months since Martin Wheatley left the FCA. In the same period before it levied £2.6bn of fines, numbers from data provider Wolters Kluwer show....
City lawyers are quietly warning trade body UK Finance that, if it does not tap their expertise, the underresourced UK government departments and regulators in charge of scrutinising a vast piece of incoming legislation designed to convert all European Union rules to UK law could be heading for disaster. The EU Withdrawal Bill, the government’s flagship piece of Brexit legislation, aims to copy 12,000 EU rules and 7,900 statutory instruments onto the domestic statute book....
Whisper it quietly, but for a large section of the UK financial services sector there is an operational challenge looming that is greater than Brexit. It comes in the form of a benchmark used to price more than $350tn of financial products around the world. The London interbank offered rate, little-known before the financial crisis, has since...
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
