Ex-Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf misled investors in accounts scam: SEC

Current CEO Charlie Scharf took over a year ago and has been tasked with overhauling the fourth biggest U.S. bank and satisfying regulators’ demands for better controls.“If executives speak about a key performance metric to promote their business, they must do so fully and accurately,” said Stephanie Avakian, director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement.The SEC’s complaint, filed in California, charges Tolstedt with fraud and seeks penalties and to ban her from being an officer or director of a public company.- Advertisement – Ex-Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf and former deputy Carrie Tolstedt were charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with misleading investors about the bank’s success in selling multiple products to customers.Stumpf agreed to pay a $2.5 million civil penalty to resolve the matter, allowing him to avoid admitting or denying the charges, the SEC said Friday.The two executives had certified in 2015 and 2016 investor disclosures that touted the firm’s supposedly robust “cross-sell” metric, despite knowing it was misleading, the SEC said in a statement. The metric is an industry term for how many products a single customer has.- Advertisement – According to the SEC’s complaint, Tolstedt publicly endorsed the firm’s vaunted cross-sell metric from 2014 through 2016, despite the fact that it was “inflated by accounts and services that were unused, unneeded, or unauthorized.”In an e-mailed statement, Tolstedt’s lawyer Enu Mainigi called his client “an honest and conscientious executive.”“It is unfair and unfounded for the SEC to point the finger at Ms. Tolstedt when her statements were not only true but also thoroughly vetted by others as part of Wells Fargo’s policies, procedures and systems of controls,” Mainigi said. “Ms. Tolstedt acted appropriately, transparently and in good faith at all times.  We look forward to setting the record straight and clearing her name.”Earlier this year, Wells Fargo paid $3 billion to settle several U.S. probes into its operations, including a $500 million deal with the SEC. The regulator said it will distribute money collected from Stumpf and the bank to investors.center_img – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

In two countries with liberal regimes, abortion rates have increased

first_imgIona Institute 6 March 2020Family First Comment: Two national reports on abortion, one from the Netherlands and one from England and Wales, have confirmed that abortion rates do not decline with more liberal laws, as the pro-choice incorrectly repeatTwo national reports on abortion, one from the Netherlands and one from England and Wales, have confirmed that abortion rates do not decline with more liberal laws, as the pro-choice incorrectly repeated during the referendum campaign.The recently published official report from the Netherlands, which refers to the year 2018, shows that both the number of abortions per women aged 15-44 (abortion rate) and per pregnancy (abortion ratio) are at their highest historical peak.In 2018, in the Netherlands there were 8.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44, which is equivalent to 164 per 1,000 pregnancies.During the debates before the referendum, the Netherlands were often presented as an inspiring model because of their long tradition in teaching sexual education and offering access to contraception. (In fact, sex education is done in various ways in the Netherlands and it is by no means all liberal in character). One of the experts told the Joint Oireachtas Committee that the Netherlands is one of the countries were “abortion rates have fallen”.But, as the graphics show, both the abortion rate and the abortion ratio have increased with time, and they are now at their top levels. They have, in fact, doubled since 1990.This week the UK Office for National Statistics presented the 2018 conceptions data for England and Wales.The report claims that “the percentage of conceptions leading to a legal abortion among all women resident in England and Wales increased from 22.7% in 2017 to 24.0% in 2018, the highest percentage since records began in 1990.” This is despite the fact that the conception rate among teenagers has continuously declined in the last 20 years and it is now at its lowest level (partially due to teenagers spending far more time at home, socialising online).READ MORE: https://ionainstitute.ie/in-two-countries-with-liberal-regimes-abortion-rates-have-increased/last_img read more

Roman Catholic Church alarmed at upsurge in St Lucia suicides

first_imgFaithLifestyleNewsRegional Roman Catholic Church alarmed at upsurge in St Lucia suicides by: – April 19, 2014 71 Views   no discussions Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Tweet CASTRIES, St. Lucia, CMC – The Roman Catholic Church, alarmed at what it says is an upsurge in suicides in St. Lucia, says it is joining forces with the Caribbean Centre for Family and Human Rights (CARIFAM) in a bid to deal with the situation.Roman Catholic priest, Father Linus Clovis said he does not think enough is being done locally to assist persons who may be prone to suicidal actions.He said he had been in contact with Samaritans, a registered charity aimed at providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland often through their telephone helpline, to obtain their help with the local initiative.Father Clovis said the plan is to set up telephone help lines where individuals at risk, their friends, relatives or other concerned individuals can call for and receive assistance.“The problem we face of course is to get the counsellors, so we’re looking at training people who would be willing to engage in that ministry, because it is a ministry, “ he said, adding that the issue of confidentiality needed to be addressed.However, he said he did not see it as an “insurmountable problem”, saying “it’s a matter of getting people we can trust.”According to Father Clovis, a building to house the suicide help centre has already been identified and funding is being sought to furnish it.Local authorities have expressed concern about an alarming number of suicides for last year and this year, and while they have not provided figures, authorities here are probing whether or not a young man who drowned near the main port in the capital, had in fact committed suicide.Caribbean Media Corporationlast_img read more

Michael Gbinije will be Syracuse’s starting point guard

first_imgMichael Gbinije, after starting at forward for most of last season, will be Syracuse’s starting point guard this coming season.Gbinije’s move to starting point guard was reported by CBS Sports’ John Rothstein on Tuesday afternoon, and Gbinije has been practicing at point guard with Trevor Cooney as his backcourt mate in the last couple weeks.The combo-guard/forward handled the ball for the Orange throughout last season, and averaged a career-high 12.7 points per game while starting in 24 of SU’s 31 games. The move likely relegates point guard Kaleb Joseph to the backup role behind Gbinije, who stands 6 feet, 7 inches and will provide a lot of length at the top of Syracuse’s zone.This will be Gbinije’s final season for the Orange, which opens its campaign on Nov. 13 at home against Lehigh. Syracuse fans will get their first chance to see the 2015-16 team on Friday during Orange Madness in the Carrier Dome. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on October 13, 2015 at 5:54 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
