Failure is a success!

Feb 12, 2019
Keith Pond
One of the most innovative parts of the Insolvency Act 1986, relating to individuals, was the introduction of the Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA). IVAs are private agreements between debtors and their creditors to compound their debts and avoid bankruptcy. Once 75%, by value, of creditors have agreed to the IVA it becomes binding on all creditors. Slow to start, but championed by a few Insolvency Practitioners (IPs), IVAs have grown in numbers. As private agreements (unlike Bankruptcy) debtors can retain certain assets and introduce third-party assets and income, provided creditors get a better deal than they would in bankruptcy.

Sustainable finance: What is the role of central banks in managing climate change?

Feb 06, 2019
Dr Paul Fisher
In most countries, central banks are the monopoly supplier of the narrow money base. Their principle responsibility is therefore ‘sound money’ which leads to various functions: controlling inflation, making sure the payments system works and doing what they can to maintain financial stability, sometimes including prudential supervision of banks. In small countries, they often deal with market conduct issues as well. Should they also have a role in managing climate change or in other aspects of sustainability?
