New employment status would give some protection to those working in ‘gig economy’

New employment status would give some protection to those working in ‘gig economy’

Technological advances have led to the emergence of the so-called ‘gig economy’ – an environment in which temporary positions are the norm and organisations contract with individuals, usually via apps, for short-term engagements.

Does this modern business phenomenon unleash innovation into the market place or reduce employment rights?

SPV reporting to mirror FVC requirements

The Central Bank of Ireland, in a statement to Finance Dublin, has said that the incoming reporting requirements for special purpose vehicles (SPVs) will mirror those currently in place for Financial Vehicle Corporations (FVCs). However, the Central Bank has said that there are currently no plans at an EU level to extend reporting requirements to SPVs. The Central Bank said that the new requirements are being introduced as part of its focus on activities on ‘the regulatory perimeter’.

A shadow banking sector has become 65 times larger over the past 5 years.

Shadow banking in general has come back to life after being hammered during the financial crisis, however one segment has been especially active.

Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, in which loans are made privately through individuals who most often connect through a network of relatively new websites, has exploded over the past five years. It is now the fastest-growing sector of non-bank lending, according to an exhaustive Goldman Sachs report on the shadow banking industry.

The P2P industry had just $26 million in loan issuance back in 2010, as the worst of the banking crisis passed; but that figure now stands at a robust $1.7 billion. While that’s still a fraction of the total $12 trillion in loans across the U.S., and even pales in comparison to the $4 trillion in total shadow bank loans, it represents a growth of 65 times during the period.

In recognition of the way LinkedIn has evolved, they recently launched Resume Builder – a tool to create a CV directly from a LinkedIn profile – choose the template, edit your info, share. (more…)
