How is investment & wealth management adapting with technological advancements?


Thanks to digital innovation and the rise of fintech, the financial marketplace continues to evolve at a rapid rate.

Make no mistake; this evolution is gradually changing the way in which investment and wealth management firms operate and the services that they offer to clients.

In the case of service providers such as WH Ireland, there’s also a drive to change the way in which city bonuses are paid and the perception of the industry as a whole. This company is committing to paying bonuses out of earned profits, rather than total revenues generated within a specific period of time.

With this in mind, there’s no doubt that firms are striving hard to remain accessible and relevant in the modern age. But how exactly are investment and wealth management companies adapting to change in the digital age?

UK court dismisses ArcelorMittal’s arbitral award plea against Essar Steel




A UK court has refused to issue a worldwide freezing order against the parent company of Ltd and members of promoter family – Ravi and Prashant Ruia.


The order came as steelmaker ArcelorMittal looked to enforce a $1.5 billion arbitral award stemming from a soured supply agreement.


In an 81-page judgment, High Court Judge Andrew Henshaw on Monday found no merit in the case being brought by ArcelorMittal to enforce a worldwide freeze on Essar’s assets to protect them from “dissipation” while the former pursues parallel legal remedies.


Reached for comments, ArcelorMittal hinted it may appeal against the judgment while an Essar spokesperson welcomed the decision saying the firm has “consistently argued that the underlying claims of wrongdoing and therefore the applications for the freezing orders were (and continue to be) ill-conceived and without any factual support.”


“We feel vindicated that the English Court has determined in this regard that ArcelorMittal USA LLC (AMUSA) has no good arguable case to bring before the Court. This Judgement has also vindicated Essar and its founders from any wrongdoing with regard to

HMRC appeal against student accommodation VAT policy ruling rejected


HMRC’s appeal against a ruling that overturned its student accommodation VAT policy has been rejected in a case bringing benefits for companies involved in the construction of student housing, landlords and universities.

The decision not only provides reassurance to the student housing sector that subcontractors do not have to be paid VAT on new build student accommodation, but has additional implications beyond cash flow for all parties involved.

The Issues

The main contractor at Primus Place had received a certificate from the developer-landlord claiming relief from VAT because the new building would be used for a relevant residential purpose (RRP) i.e. a communal building for students. Ordinarily sub-contractors working on RRP buildings are not entitled to zero-rate their services; VAT must be charged at 20 per cent which the main contractor must then reclaim on a VAT return.

However, the units were designed as self-contained living accommodation including kitchenettes and en-suite bathrooms. While planning consent restricted use to students, there was no clause preventing each unit from being separately used or sold. Summit argued the zero-rate could be applied as they were working on ‘dwellings’. The relief for dwellings is broader than for RRP buildings and allows both main and
