I worked as a general news reporter in Scotland for several years before moving to Brussels to cover European Union politics and policy development for the newspaper European Voice, since renamed Politico Europe. After returning to Scotland to work as deputy business editor of the Sunday Herald ...
The global mutual funds industry could save €2.15 billion a year if it moved from the current manual process of fund trading and adopted an online ledger technology known as blockchain, according to a study published today. The study, by technology firm Calastone, uses data from a study by Deloitte on the financial savings that could be made by mutualising the cost of distribution.
At a time of continuing low interest rates, some income funds are paying 8%-9% a year against a global equities benchmark of half that amount. Mark Latham examines some of the reasons. Many equity income funds produce returns for investors by distributing the dividends paid by companies. But because the managers of funds have a broad discretion as to how income is distributed, there are also income funds that distribute any capital gains generated.
There has been a record jump in the number of investors who have taken out insurance against a possible sharp fall in equity markets. The Bank of America Merrill Lynch fund manager survey for February found that the percentage of investors who have taken out protection against an equities drop over the next three months has risen 20% from a net -50% in January to -30% in February.

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".
