Bellerin came on just moments after Holding added to Gabriel Martinelli’s opener with a powerful header and the Spaniard instantly provided assist from the right flank for Joe Willock.Reiss Nelson added a fourth from close range in the 84th minute and Martinelli completed his brace at the death to seal a comprehensive victory for the Premier League giants.The one major concern for Emery will have been Emile Smith Rowe’s head injury just before half-time after a nasty collision with Forest defender Jack Robinson.It’s understood Smith Rowe suffered a slight concussion and fellow academy graduate Bukayo Saka came on in his place for the remainder of the match.

In theory, products pooling euro-zone bonds could already be offered but would be treated less favourably than the underlying securities, for example when calculating capital requirements for insurers.The Commission’s proposal was to create a template for SBBS to which all providers offering such products would have to adhere. EU proposals to securitise pools of government bonds have been dismissed as unworkable by German investors.The European Commission presented its plans early on Thursday morning to create a market for “sovereign bond backed securities” (SBBS), effectively pooling together euro-zone governments’ bonds.However, the German association for investment professionals (DVFA) immediately responded to the proposal, saying the structure would not work and there would be no demand.With the new framework for SBBS – designed as part of its work on the Capital Markets Union – the Commission said it “aims to level the playing field by removing unjustified regulatory impediments to the development of SBBS by the private sector”. Former Latvian prime minister Valdis Dombrovskis is leading efforts to strengthen the EU Capital Markets Union“The underlying portfolio must include sovereign bonds of all euro area member states, with relative weights in line with each member state’s contribution to the capital of the European Central Bank,” the Commission stated.The products would have to consist of two risk tranches – the junior package getting higher returns for bearing any losses first, as with any other kind of asset-backed security.However, the DVFA argued that, as many AAA-rated sovereign bonds had negative yields on certain durations, there was no buffer from which to derive excess returns for a junior tranche.This in turn would mean investors seeking a higher risk investment would not buy the junior tranche, as it would not give the associated higher reward.“And if the junior tranche cannot be placed with investors, the SBBS construct itself is not working,” Stefan Bielmeier, chairman of the board at DVFA, noted in the association’s statement.The association likened the construct to a collateralised bond obligation (CBO) in which a contractual hierarchy renders the senior tranche synthetically less risky than it would be on its own.“A crucial prerequisite for a working CBO structure is a low or ideally negative correlation between the securities in the portfolio – and this does not apply to the SBBS structure,” Bielmeier said.They pointed out that, among the 22 euro-zone countries, six have been assessed to have a deteriorating creditworthiness or persistently low ratings.In its statement the DVFA called on banks and other institutional investors to consider whether SBBS would really be a better option than local sovereign bonds.The creation of pooled euro-zone securities has been one of the most discussed solutions to the problem of banks’ close ties to their local securities markets.Different to the concept of Eurobonds frequently discussed since the financial crisis, SBBS would not “involve mutualisation of risks and losses among member states”, the Commission explained.At the DVFA Bielmeier found one positive aspect in the SBBS: “For the ECB, these bonds would create a new asset class easing her capital key corset when buying sovereign bonds.”The Commission’s proposal now has to be discussed by the European Parliament and Council, and will need the approval of all euro-zone member states.

RelatedPosts Ghana FA says FIFA Relief Fund meant to bring football back CR7 gets 10-year UAE Gold Card visa Ghana appoint new Black Stars coach Ghana’s Football Association has sacked the coaches of all their men’s and women’s national teams. The GFA did not give a reason for the move. But its President Kurt Okraku, who was appointed in October, promised to “build a new association”. This had followed allegations of bribery and corruption in a documentary filmed by an investigative journalist. The development has now brought to an end Kwesi Appiah’s second reign as the national team coach. He was appointed a second time in 2017 following a two-year stint between 2012 and 2014. Under Appiah, Ghana failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup after playing in the three previous editions. They were eliminated in the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations last year – their earliest exit since 2006. “The Ghana Football Association has dissolved the technical teams of all national teams with immediate effect. The decision affects both male and female national teams,” GFA had said in a statement released late on Thursday. “The GFA extends its appreciation to all coaches and members of the respective national teams for their contributions to our teams and Ghana football. We wish them all the best in their endeavours.” The country decided to dissolve its national football association in 2018 after a recording in the documentary appeared to show officials, including the body’s then president Kwesi Nyantakyi, taking kickbacks. Nyantakyi, also a former member of FIFA’s General Council, was later banned for life by FIFA. Reuters/NAN.Tags: 2018 FIFA World CupGhana FAKurt OkrakuKwesi Appiah
