Selvsving: Nordea synger ud 2016-07-16  

Det er ikke nemt at være bank: Bare fordi man prøver at hjælpe kunderne til at snyde samfundet for en masse skattekroner, får man ballade. Det er som om samfundet ikke forstår at banken jo bare prøver at tjene et par milliarder. Altså, så den ikke er nødt til at bede om endnu en bankpakke fra samfundet. Nej, det er ikke nemt at være bank. I dag fik vi hjælp af Simon Nøjers.

The return of the 100% mortgage, Choices over maturing NS&I index-linked savings certificates  

This week one of Britain's biggest banks, Barclays, launched a 100% mortgage deal - though with some strings attached. The 'bank of mum and dad' has to stump up 10% of the purchase price which then gets placed in a savings account. The Barclays' decision has prompted debate in the industry as 100% mortgage deals have had a bad press since the 2008 credit crunch, with thousands of homeowners left in negative equity. Simon Collins from mortgage brokers John Charcol joins the programme. The right for low incomed people or those with a poor credit history to open a basic bank account was introduced in January this year. The right to a basic bank account is part of the EU Payment Accounts Directive 2014. But what would happen if the UK votes in June to leave the EU? Will the right to a basic bank account still exist? Michael Ruck, from Pinsent Masons reveals the answer. And Anna Ellison from Policis looks into the reasons why almost two million of us do not even have a basic bank account. The highly popular NS&I Index Linked Savings Certificates are coming to the end of their term over the next few months. Should investors holding these maturing certificates, which were last on general sale in 2011, lock in, roll over or cash out? What are the pros and cons? Kevin Mountford, Head of Banking with MoneySuperMarket.com, speaks to the programme. Should businesses and banks in particular do more to combat online scams and even pay back the victims who've lost out? That's the debate Richard Lloyd of Which? and banking professor Alistair Milne from Loughborough University will have live on the programme.

The Panama Papers  

This week's massive leak of confidential documents from the Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca, has given unprecedented access to the way the rich and powerful have used tax havens to hide their wealth. But within the eleven and a half million documents, there is also evidence of how some of the shell companies set up by the firm, or the individuals that owned them, have been the subject of international sanctions and have been used by rogue states and oppressive regimes including North Korea and Syria. Simon Cox reveals details from the leaked papers and travels to the British Virgin Islands where a small office run by Mossack Fonseca was used to create more than 100,000 companies. One of them was a front for a North Korean Bank that was later sanctioned by the United States for supporting the regime's illicit nuclear and ballistic missile programme. According to the US, the BVI based front company managed millions of dollars in transactions in support of North Korea. Other companies set up by on the island were used by a billionaire businessman who is a cousin of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad and who was sanctioned by the US for using "intimidation and his close ties to the Assad regime at the expense of ordinary Syrians." Mossack Fonseca has said it never knowingly allowed the use of its companies by individuals with any relationship with North Korea or Syria and says it has operated beyond reproach for 40 years and has never been charged with criminal wrong-doing. Reporter: Simon Cox Producer: James Melley
