The government will be concerned about its credibility with the markets if it signals a desire to back away from its retrenchment programme. “But the balance of risks has clearly changed since the election and the Chancellor would be wise to consider whether he can go slower than planned with cuts.“Posen has called for a new injection of quantitative easing and we believe that he is right. An extra £50bn has to be injected in the economy before the end of 2010 to stimulate the growth we so desperately need.” Tags: NULL Sunday 10 October 2010 11:11 pm

We do not expect to change our forecasts for 2011. The group remains cautious highlighting ‘continued uncertainty’ over the medium term outlook.ALEX DEGROOTE | PANMURE GORDONWe expect that the market was pricing in material downgrades on the back of comments from other publishers. We do not expect this to materialise. On this basis, the shares look attractively valued. Operational profits are expected to be up year-on-year.

Andrew Cook introduces our breakdown of salary trends by department and role with some advice for both clients and candidates on how to use the data and findings from this year’s salary survey to their advantage. Today we cover analytics & data, customer services and compliance, legal & fraud Tactics are critical when it comes to talent. Whether you’re buying it (as an employer) or selling it (as a candidate), knowing the value of what’s on sale is critical. The data offered here can inform your tactics, allowing you to achieve the best result whether you’re applying for a position, or looking to fill one.Salary bands are compiled using data from the placements made by Pentasia in the last 12 months, as well as its consultants’ knowledge of the market.The survey covers a wide range of roles and territories to ensure it takes into account variations in factors such as specialisms, seniority and experience. Data from senior management roles are included, but not C-suite or Board because salaries at this level vary so greatly on an individual basis. So once you have worked out what the average salary is for a particular set of roles in your location, let’s talk tactics for both sides…Employers What should we be paying?That depends on three factors: 1. What your competitors are paying? This is your baseline 2. How much will stop the candidate looking elsewhere? This should be the baseline plus 5-10% 3. How much will persuade the candidate to jump ship? This is the price you’ll need to pay to make the hire, and should be the baseline plus around 10-20%How much does money matter? Candidates take a job for four reasons: the company, the job, the people and the compensation. The more you can offer in the first three, the lower the compensation package you put on the table will need to be. How do you value a skill? i) Weigh the scarcity of resources available against the demand for the skill in question ii) Assess the role’s importance to your business iii) Decide what the cost would be of losing existing staff from your organisationCandidates Should I be paid more?• Industry experience is valuable: please bear in mind that our salary survey is igaming-specific and niche experience is highly prized • Bear in mind that the employment market as a whole is more accustomed to regular job changes than 10 years ago, when long-term loyalty was seen as keyHow do I get a promotion? Most employers understand that your worth increases with each year – or even month – of experience you hold. Been with an organisation for some time? It’s certainly well worth asking about advancement.What else should I expect from my employer? • A large number of employers now offer a broad range of flexible work options, including flexi-time and remote working • Additional benefits on offer in the modern workplace include bonuses, training allowances and travel allowances • There is generally some value in working with an organisation with a great culture where you are among like-minded peopleAnalytics & data Analytics has become an absolutely critical part of the igaming industry, ever more vital as competition for customers grows ever fiercer and as strict regulation limits acquisition opportunities.Data departments are growing rapidly. The increase in lower-level roles has skewed the data to show a downward trend, but this disguises the overall increases in investment and senior salaries.A premium is put on data scientists – those who can develop algorithms and statistical models – as well as BI analysts whose insights drive strategy.Gambling industry expertise is obviously desirable, but even junior professionals and graduates find their skills in high demand. (Ashley Gooders)Compliance, legal & fraud Changes to the regulation across the igaming world have made compliance and legal recruitment a high priority for many employers. Staying ahead of the curve is essential, given the risk of severe fines and reputational damage that can be caused by a failure to comply with new or changing rules.Employers face competition for the right people, especially when they are in short supply in recently regulated territories such as Scandinavia, Portugal and, of course, the US. (Kerry Gillitt)Customer services Offering great customer service is a true differentiator for an igaming operator, which means those who interact directly with clients should be – and often are – highly valued.Customer support agents with language skills are particularly valuable to operators, and these individuals can expect to sit high on the relevant salary bands.However, the highest wages go to those whose roles spill over into ‘customer experience’ – in other words people who deliver customer service excellence through all customer touchpoints.

24th February 2020 | By Joanne Christie Sports betting Results from the final quarter of 2019 laid bare the enormous impact of both regulators and Google on the affiliate sector.Though the increasing compliance demands from authorities in countries such as the UK and Sweden have in the past undoubtedly favoured the big players such as those featured in this report, they are now beginning to take a toll on these affiliates too. This is particularly true in Sweden, where the opening up of the regulated market hasn’t been quite the boon many hoped for.A first look at the new Germany gambling treaty has understandably caused concern among the sector, with some interpreting the proposed wording as outlawing affiliate activity altogether.However, while the sector is clearly under pressure, there are some bright spots. Better Collective continues to outperform its peers, with its growth in revenues and NDCs bucking the declining trend elsewhere.Though it has not yet overtaken market leader Catena Media on revenues, it has taken the lead on NDCs and its recent move into esports could further strengthen its position.But while its revenues and NDCs may be on the slide, Catena is clearly still getting something right judging by its resilience in the face of the Google updates that wreaked havoc on some of its competitors.While the changes made by the search giant left XLMedia reeling, Catena said its sites were performing well, with insiders theorising this was largely due to its ‘hero’ brand AskGamblers.XLMedia was not the only affiliate impacted by Google’s algorithm changes – Gambling.com and GiG’s media services division also took a hit, though both said they’d made changes to counteract the fall in their rankings.We hope you enjoy this report and find it useful.

Have £3k to invest? 3 healthcare stocks I’d buy for 2020 It’s not always easy to identify sectors with the potential to deliver long-term growth.But I think it’s pretty safe to believe that the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors will continue to expand as the world’s population ages, emerging markets become wealthier.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I’ve increased my portfolio’s weighting to this sector over the last year and plan to maintain this exposure in 2020. In this article I’d like to take a look at three London-listed stocks I rate as top healthcare buys for the year ahead.Hidden valueMy first — and biggest — pick is FTSE 100 pharma group GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). This well-known company has for many years operated with a diverse product portfolio including consumer healthcare products and specialist medicines.This structure attracted critics who said that the group lacked focus. Chief executive Emma Walmsley appears to share this view. Less than three years after taking charge in April 2017, she’s now masterminding a process that will see the company split itself into separate consumer and pharma companies over the next three years.The GSK share price has responded well to these plans and climbed 19% last year, beating the FTSE 100. I feel optimistic about this stock too. In my experience, splitting a company into two smaller, more focused businesses often improves the performance of both units.Even after last year’s gains, Glaxo still looks reasonably priced to me on less than 15 times earnings, with a 4.5% dividend yield. I remain a buyer.A small-cap winner?My next pick is small-cap firm Medica Group (LSE: MGP). This company provides outsourced radiology reporting for NHS hospitals. Essentially, Medica recruits qualified radiologists and provides them with hospital-grade workstations. They can then provide scan reports remotely, including out-of-hours.According to the company, it provides more than 1.3m reports annually for more than 100 NHS Trusts. I think it’s fair to say that it’s a market leader — presumably the NHS couldn’t manage without this service.It’s certainly a profitable, fast-growing business. Medica’s turnover has increased from £9.5m in 2013 to £39m in 2018. The firm’s operating profit margin has averaged 21% during this time and it’s largely debt-free. The shares rose by 30% last year and now trade on 17 times 2020 forecast earnings, but I think this is a fair price for a highly profitable, growing business.Profit from an ageing populationIn most developed countries, populations are ageing. Birth rates are lower and people are living longer. Demand for joint replacements seems likely to keep rising, which should help FTSE 100 firm Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN).The Smith & Nephew share price suffered some turbulence last year when it emerged that newly-arrived chief executive Namal Nawana was to quit after 18 months due to a disagreement over what he should be paid.However, a new CEO was appointed promptly and the firm’s trading performance remained solid, with sales expected to have risen by 4.3% in 2019. Analysts are projecting a modest increase in profit for 2019, with a bigger 8% increase predicted for 2020.Shares in this firm rarely look cheap. But they’ve doubled since 2014 and I believe continued growth is likely. For long-term investors, I think it’s worth paying 22 times forecast earnings to own a slice of this business. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

In the Historic Center of Porto, an opportunity appears to develop a contemporary dwelling capable of being urbanistically integrated into the morphology of the city. Owned by the same owners as the next-door building, the project was thought out in a way that could create new spaces for extending their own dwelling, as well as adding two new studios. The challenge was to create a building that would adapt to the accentuated gap of the vacant lot located in Rua da Vitória, one of the oldest streets in the city, and to take advantage of the privileged view of the urban landscape of this World Heritage Site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosThe building follows the alignment of the neighboring constructions and the street, and adapts to the morphology of the land taking advantage of the difference of levels to build two floors below the street level. In total there are four floors, two floors above the street, aligned by the edges of the roof of the neighboring buildings, maintaining the existing urban profile.Save this picture!Courtesy of Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosSave this picture!Courtesy of Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Courtesy of Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosAccess to the interior of the dwelling is done directly from the street, where the first studio is located. The upper floor, accessible through the adjacent building, consists of a suite and a balcony. The second studio is located on the lower floor with the same distribution as the first one. Technical areas are located in the backyard, which communicates with both buildings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosThe building is completely open to the city to the Southeast, with wide openings, and a balcony on the top floor, so that you can enjoy the landscape over the city. This more torn front contrasts with the Northwest front towards the street, which is more closed due to the proximity that the building has with neighboring buildings.Save this picture!Cross SectionBecause it is a new structure, the materials and construction techniques used were in accordance with current practices. The new construction holds a volumetry that is totally shaped to the existing reality, and at the same time adopts a contemporary image, that offers its users a unique visual and architectonic experience.Save this picture!Courtesy of Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosProject gallerySee allShow lessRadical Innovation Awards: Call for EntriesIdeasARCASIA Travel Prize 2018: KUMIKIOpportunities Share ArchDaily Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects “COPY” CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Porto, Portugal CopyAbout this officePaulo Freitas e Maria João Marques ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentPortoPortugalPublished on March 05, 2018Cite: “Vitória 225 / Paulo Freitas e Maria João Marques Arquitectos” 05 Mar 2018.
