7:30 pm
thank you both by and does quite often get a bad crowd blamed for all of the recent violence or crashes whether it be the great depression and to the recent crash of two thousand and eight described as greedy ruthless of having no integrity and costing taxpayers billions of dollars. for all but i believe that the so-called ah ha ah the ready to change their attitude with the help of god yes i'm being perfectly serious details to come but heard me on that one plus international sports stars are here in russia finally the so she gave they have forgot who and while we're going to be joining our reporter who's in sochi talking about money they got loads on the white jam packed show do not move a muscle now so people in general well they don't trust bank has often accusing them of having no called or credibility. to change this and i'll turn to
7:31 pm
god for help in doing so yeah buts right dodge buying all ninety thousand of well now swear an oath to do the most to preserve halts confidence in the financial services industry now this is part of the dutch government's to change to take the overinflated industry with assets of more than four times the size of the country's economy and if you're thinking that maybe it's just a p.r. but apparently if the new code of conduct is broken then the guilty banks get blacklisted all face a fine and is not just banks making moves to clean up the image of the banking industry i should say this week focus chief anthony jenkins he waived his four point five billion dollars bonus and that was for the second year in a ride but no banking. chiefs are taking the moral route no off very favorite j.p.
7:32 pm
morgan's jamie diamond he took over his twenty million dollar paycheck last year despite the abundance of fines we know that his bank has been dealt with but the point is overall it seems efforts are being made now added to this lloyd's another british banking empire has vowed to up their female star from twenty eight percent to forty percent in would this make the banking industry more moral low to talk about we've got by. refusing bonuses will some men away at the prospect of more women in the male dominated industry so does all of this all together does it mean a social moral movement in the banking world where our all this search you up these numbers what on earth is going on at the moment with our friend kelly right here who's involved in the financial world in london from i j brenda the oath taken by
7:33 pm
the dutch banking system is this g.d.s. or is it total nonsense. i think it probably there's comes full somewhere in between the two i think when you look at. the reputation of the financial sector since the financial crisis i think it is quite important that we try and change the point of view of some of the employees of banks and i think in some respects it does have to make it a more discerning profession particularly in light of what's happened over the last few years so i think in some respects it is a good thing i've had interesting conversations with people in relation to the life or manipulation of the four explain if elation and some are trying to draw a difference between the two whereas in fact i think if you feel that you're doing something incorrect or morally wrong it doesn't really matter whether it's a small or a big thing it should actually fall into the same category so in some respects i think this is a good idea and could be a good template for most banks brendel why should the banking industry care what the scientists thinks of the money will be made gold less well backed up to be
7:34 pm
honest with you is probably quite true but i do feel that over the last number of weeks we have seen that there have been a huge amount of redundancies in banks so clearly there are problems still facing the banking sector at the moment. regards whether or not you feel that the banking sector in the financial sector has been fixed since the height of the crisis and i feel about this goes some way to trying to make people believe in what their job is of course all to help to kind of fix the reputational damage there i think it is important but i do take your point that clearly banks will make money in the matter was but i think it's trying to turn over a new leaf that is quite important here a little i want to ask you about barclays chief executive antony jenkins turning down the bonus for the second year how important is it the banking chiefs do they does it have a significance do you guys can. i'm not so certain i care all that much i do
7:35 pm
believe that in many respects the bonus is more than likely deferred i was a little bit further and i think it's mostly a p.r. exercise on behalf of barclays perhaps it is a way off leading by example by the head of the buying i start be about a fee stays there gets gets the bank on its feet once again i'm proves to its shareholders he's worthy of a bonus find some stuff worthy of a bonus then i would expect in a few years time more than make up for the losses that he's made over the last couple of years oh yeah i don't doubt that little another let's talk about women because lawyers all keen to get more female what is in the industry would how does new experience do women make the industry more moral. i think it's an interesting case actually and i don't subscribe to the view that women are more risk averse than men and obviously i work in quite a male dominated department here but i think there is a perception there that women do do not take more risks but if you look at risk
7:36 pm
taking as a whole it's generally taken as a financial scenario but if you actually look at risk to be standing up for what's right in the face of opposition taking an ethical path where there's actually pressure to stray i think women could actually bring in a little bit more of a collaborative effort in the banking sector which is more likely to show successful risk taking and there have been studies showing that men are inclined to there are two different waiting on factors for risk taking two of them are the likelihood that the risk in question would help hit strategic objectives the second is the effect the risk on the people involved men are more inclined to focus on the former women are more inclined to focus on the locker so i think bringing in more female stuff into senior management could really put create a collaborative effort i make the risk taking that is encouraged to buy and king and to profits more successful on a more moral question of making money absolutely thank you have a so much that's brenda kelly right there from my dear. talking to us in london
7:37 pm
today now moving on the sochi games on now oh and already a record breaker for the most expensive games in history we know that much and even when i say the price tag now the fifty one billion dollars that has been spent now is done and dusted but the good news is the games are expected to generate the most revenue in history to know i'm talking television advertisements sponsorships merchandise even private jets so let's talk to a farmer right now who is insult she is for us. so today sochi is set to make money than the full plentiful well it should do i mean in terms of associated advertising revenue hoffer trillion dollars is expected to be generated in this sounds like a staggering amount but you do have to remember that something like three billion people around the world will watch the games on their television sets so for advertisers it is seen as something of a golden ticket and that's why you do get the likes of me don't move panasonic in
