US: The United States on Tuesday urged China and the private sector to increase their participation in a G20 debt moratorium for low-income countries hammered by the COVID-19 pandemic, and a common framework for restructuring their debts.
A senior U.S. Treasury official said Washington was open to expanding the common framework for debt treatment agreed by the G20 and the Paris Club beyond just low-income countries to include small island states, fragile states and even some lower middle-income countries with high debt burdens.
G20 finance officials will review progress on the debt issue when they meet in Venice on July 9-10, amid growing alarm about a looming debt crisis.
The head of the International Monetary Fund, Kristalina Georgieva, has warned repeatedly about a “dangerous divergence” in the pandemic response and economic prospects that could leave developing countries lagging far behind for years.
Some Chinese entities had not participated fully in the G20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative, or debt freeze, and Washington was urging Beijing to participate more fully in both initiatives, such as provide more data to other creditors.
Eurozone: Many fund managers fall short in assessing the value of their funds and regulatory action may be needed, Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority said on Tuesday as part of a longstanding crackdown on unjustified fees.
A review of 18 fund managers between July 2020 and May 2021 found most had not implemented FCA standards on assessments of value, the watchdog said in a statement.
An assessment is required at least once a year and is key in determining whether fees charged by funds are justified.
While some funds conducted their assessments well, too many often-made assumptions that they could not justify to the regulator, the FCA said.
“When considering a fund’s performance, many firms did not consider what the fund should deliver given its investment policy, investment strategy and fees,” the FCA said.
