The latest shred of evidence comes courtesy of Tom Holland’s Instagram (as well as the official Uncharted Twitter account), where he shared a picture of him in full Nathan Drake costume. Holland has quite the young face in general, but he by and large looks the part — and the whole vibe of the shot screams “Uncharted” in a pretty satisfying way. Providing even more evidence that the Uncharted film is a real thing, Nolan North posted some photos from a set visit today on Twitter.

Goldman Sachs on Thursday agreed to pay nearly $3 billion to settle a probe into its role in Malaysia's 1MDB corruption scandal, and its Malaysia unit agreed to plead guilty to violating foreign bribery laws, drawing a line under a saga that has dogged the bank for years. The settlement resolves a probe by U.S. authorities into the bank's role in underwriting three bond offerings in 2012 and 2013 that raised $6.5 billion for Malaysia's government. Under the terms, Goldman has been slapped with a $2.3 billion penalty and about $600 million of disgorgement.
(Bloomberg) -- The polls are saying it and the market is pricing it: President Donald Trump is going to lose the U.S. election next month and his Republican Party may even fail to keep the Senate.But traders have been burned betting the house on one side before, such as in the last U.S. presidential election in 2016 and the Brexit referendum the same year. The risk that the consensus for a Democratic sweep of power this time doesn’t play out, or the result being contested, is leading some to take no chances with less than two weeks until the Nov. 3 vote.James Athey, a money manager for Aberdeen Standard Investments, has loaded up on Treasuries and has a long position in the dollar and the yen versus riskier currencies such as South Africa’s rand. That’s because he expects these to benefit in the event of a surprise.“I see a very real chance that the incumbent wins,” he said, looking at social-media sentiment indicators as well as changes in party registrations. “Both suggest more Republican support than the polls.”The market’s view has shifted in recent months from worries about a contested election that would spur volatility, to bets on a solid win for Democrat Joe Biden as the polls consolidate in his favor. That has pushed up Treasury yields along with U.S. stocks on the prospect that a Biden administration would usher in bigger fiscal stimulus, especially if the Democrats take the Senate.While polls now put Trump’s chances of winning at a little over 10%, Athey sees it between 35% to 40%, with the potential to go even higher. He reckons a Trump victory would see 10-year Treasury yields slide to 0.5%, while a Democratic president and Senate would send them up to 1%, from around 0.84% currently.However, at a minimum, the race for the Senate is unlikely to deliver an outright majority for the Democratic party, according to Athey. And he’s not the only one to worry about a close race, showing Wall Street’s position may be evolving again toward more hedging.For JPMorgan Asset Management, the risk is a possibility that the election could be contested. In a presentation Thursday, it said most investors were keen to avoid such a scenario.“We are preparing for the worst outcome but hoping for a much clearer-cut scenario after Nov. 3,” said Hugh Gimber, global market strategist at the U.S. bank’s fund arm. “Binary events call for balance in portfolios.”That need may have increased after the U.S.’s top spy chief accused Iran of making its most direct efforts to interfere in the election. So far, bets on stock volatility as measured by the VIX Index haven’t picked up much, while the MOVE Index signals bond swings are below this year’s average.Chris Chapman, a portfolio manager at Manulife Investment, is another who believes the risk of a delayed outcome is underpriced in the market. He has now reduced his underweight position on 30-year Treasuries to reflect that view.“For us, duration would be the primary hedge for a contested election, and probably some dollar strength,” said Chapman. “The risk of a contested election does seem to be diminished but the market is probably a little ahead of itself with the blue wave consensus.”(Updates with Manulife Investment from penultimate paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Home goods company creates the retail space of the future, adding virus killing technology to its new Greenwich, CT and Boca Raton, FL stores Boll & Branch Becomes First Retail Store to Install Healthe Inc.'s New, State-of-the-Art Far-UVC Sanitizing Technology Summit, NJ, Oct. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boll & Branch (the "Company"), the world's leading designer and retailer of sustainable home goods, is setting a new standard for the future of retail space safety by becoming the first retail store to install Far-UVC 222 light technology (Healthe Space™). This cutting-edge sanitization solution will increase protections for customers and employees against the spread of harmful pathogens and viruses. Boll & Branch has installed Far-UVC downlights in its newly opened retail locations in Greenwich, CT (169 Greenwich Ave) and Boca Raton, FL (Town Center at Boca Raton, 6000 Glades Road, Space 1034). This state-of-the art sanitization technology was developed by Melbourne, Fla. based Healthe, Inc. "The health and safety of our customers and our community is top priority for us and we're proud to implement Healthe's advanced sanitizing technology in our retail stores to ensure just that," said Scott Tannen, CEO and Founder, Boll & Branch. "At Boll & Branch we make decisions with people and the common good in mind. This technology will allow our customers to shop and test our product safely, and with the utmost peace of mind." Healthe has developed a comprehensive suite of solutions that utilize UVC and Far-UVC 222 light to sanitize indoor environments in real time, by deactivating air and surface contaminants. Significantly, these solutions can be safely operated in occupied spaces. Boll & Branch has installed the Healthe Space™, (formerly known as Cleanse Downlight) to sanitize its in-store mattresses. Space is a ceiling light that combines general illumination with Far-UVC 222 sanitizing light to clean air and surfaces in real time. Space replaces traditional downlight cans and can be easily retrofitted into existing standard 6” housings. “We are pleased to provide Boll & Branch our next-level sanitizing solutions as they look to safely open two new stores,” said Healthe Executive Chairman Abe Morris. “Our ceiling downlights will enable Boll & Branch customers to shop with peace of mind. Our partnership with this highly respected retailer is another testament to the utility of our solutions as we continue to help many sectors not only reopen and stay open, but also expand their business.” A growing library of evidence, including independent research backed by many peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals, demonstrates that Far-UVC light is effective at inactivating viral particles in the air and on surfaces and is safe for use in indoor environments. One recent study by researchers at Columbia University concluded that “far-UVC light (207–222 nm) efficiently kills pathogens potentially without harm to exposed human tissues.”As one of the study’s authors and leading Far-UVC researcher David Brenner has said, Far-UVC “can be safely used in occupied public spaces, and it kills pathogens in the air before we can breathe them in.” About Boll & Branch:Boll & Branch is a leading designer and retailer of luxury, sustainable home goods, ethically sourced and expertly crafted from the utmost quality materials.

(Bloomberg) -- The Bank of Israel will buy 35 billion shekels ($10.3 billion) more in government bonds and provide cheap credit for small businesses to boost the economy that is now emerging from a second national lockdown.The monetary committee decided to expand the scope of government bond purchases beyond 50 billion shekels “to ensure that the economy’s credit needs continue to receive a response via a convenient interest rate environment,” Governor Amir Yaron said on Thursday.The Bank of Israel is trying to shore up the battered economy, with tumbling consumer confidence and unemployment rising to almost 20% since Israel hunkered down last month. The government started loosening restrictions this week as new coronavirus cases drop, but the pace of the phased reopening remains uncertain. The central bank now estimates the economy will contract between 5% and 6.5% this year.The added bond purchases are also coming to the aid of the government, which needs to find ways to plug the growing budgetary hole. The trailing 12-month deficit has more than doubled in 2020 to 9.1% of gross domestic product as a result of expanded fiscal stimulus.Conducive Environment“Getting activity and inflation back on track currently means providing the government with an environment that is conducive to raising money for its efforts to prop up the economy,” Citigroup Inc. analyst Michel Nies wrote in a note before the decision. “Indeed, the higher debt levels mean that the impact of interest rate changes is considerably stronger than before.”The Bank of Israel has taken several steps since the start of the crisis to mitigate the damage, such as buying corporate bonds to lower borrowing costs for businesses, easing requirements for mortgage repayments and reducing banks’ capital buffers to keep credit flowing. The central bank has so far bought 33.6 billion shekels of state debt.The central bank also said on Thursday that it will extend 10 billion shekels of four-year loans to local banks -- at a fixed minus 0.1% rate -- to help small businesses survive. The index of Israel’s biggest banking stocks jumped 2.5%, the most in more than in two weeks.The central bank did disappoint those investors anticipating a cut to the base lending rate, which remained at a record low of 0.1%, according to Guy Beit-Or, head of macro research at Psagot Investment House. The yield on Israel’s benchmark government bond rose.“The markets did not wait and were quick to express their disappointment with the decision not to cut interest rates,” Beit-Or wrote in a report after the decision. “If the Bank of Israel’s goal was to calm the markets and increase confidence that yields will remain low for the long term, at least today it has not worked for them.”(Updates with banking index trading in seventh paragraph, analyst commentary in final two paragraphs)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
