  • Former trader Hayes found guilty in world's first Libor trial

    In the first trial of a defendant accused of Libor rigging, Hayes had faced up to 10 years imprisonment for each count of conspiracy over the manipulation of London interbank offered rate (Libor), a crucial benchmark for around $450 trillion (£288.3 trillion) of financial contracts and consumer loans, between 2006 and 2010. The London trial, which kicked off on May 26, marked a new phase in the inquiry that has led to 21 people being charged and some of the world's most powerful banks and brokerages paying around $9 billion in regulatory settlements. The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) had alleged Hayes set up a network of brokers and traders spanning 10 leading financial institutions and cajoled or bribed them to help rig for profit rates designed to reflect the cost of inter-bank borrowing.

  • Part number confirms debris from 777 jet

    Malaysian authorities have confirmed that the plane wreckage washed up on an Indian Ocean island is from a Boeing 777, meaning the part is almost certainly from missing flight MH370. The debris, part of a plane wing called a flaperon, could provide the first tangible clue to unlocking the mystery surrounding the doomed Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared without trace on March 8 last year with 239 people on board, including six Australians. This could be the convincing evidence that MH370 went down in the Indian Ocean," Malaysia's Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said.

  • Don't panic, $1m in super not essential

    It would be nice to have $1 million in your superannuation account when you retire, but it's by no way essential. Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees boss Tom Garcia believes claims that a $1 million or more balance was needed for a comfortable retirement is causing unnecessary fear and concern among older Australians. Most people approaching retirement will draw an income that is a combination of both super and the age pension," he says.
