Vaccines have emerged as a “new” desperately needed goods. Many believed that once a safe and effective vaccine is found, the pandemic will be over and we can return to normal life pre-COVID-19. However, will that be the case? Will vaccines be a silver bullet that will end this crisis? Furthermore, how can we prevent the possible vaccine from being politicized? Will there be enough global political commitment to set aside national vaccine strategies? Will countries only share the vaccine with allies while abandoning vulnerable populations in adversary countries? How do we ensure fair and equal access to vaccines for the vulnerable, both in developed and developing countries? GTH2020’s session “Vaccine for All: Utopia or a Possibility”, featuring a speech from Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of World Health Organization, will discuss the challenges and issues faced by the international community to ensure an equal, fair, and comprehensive vaccine distribution for all, particularly in the wake of rising vaccine nationalism and politicization, geopolitical rivalries, and corporate politics. Register at gth2020.com.
Banks and a Canadian thing to do? In this unprecedented crisis, the Federal and Provincial governments, as well as many small to large businesses / corporations, are doing their best to alleviate the sufferings of the Canadians. So why can’t the banks do the same? I am sure many of us have read the following article published on 11th April 2020 and wondered what can we do about it? “Big banks slammed for charging customers interest on interest for deferred mortgage payments” Plea se add (https://www.) cbc.ca/…/banks-charge-interest-on-interest-for-mortgage-pay… Also, while banks borrow at 0.25%, they charge (supposedly reduced rates) about 10% to 11% interest on credit card debts. See the below article. “Canada's big banks cut credit card interest rates to ease coronavirus impact” Please add (https://www.) cbc.ca/…/big-six-banks-credit-card-interest-rates-relief-co… How can we make banks realise that it’s better if we face the crisis together. The least banks can do is NOT charge interest on interest. General understanding is if we can effectively engage the industry leader the rest of the banks will follow. If by engaging one Bank can benefit many Canadians, it’s worth a try. Royal Bank of Canada is the industry leader. Now, the question is who can engage a powerful corporation like RBC to do a right thing in this difficult time? For the answer, let’s first figure out, where does RBC gets its powers from? And then break them down into manageable pieces. EARNINGS BY BUSINESS 2019 Personal & Commercial Banking 49% Capital Markets 21% Wealth Management 20% Insurance 6% Investor & Treasury Services 4% The first source of power - Personal and Commercial Banking contributes almost half to the earnings of the bank. Personal Banking includes home equity financing, personal lending, indirect lending (including auto financing), and credit cards. RBC has over 7 million credit card accounts and 23% market share of Canada’s credit card purchase volume. RBC has provided over 287 billion dollars of residential mortgages and over 38 billion dollars of home equity line of credit to the Canadians. Table below provides further details: Residential mortgages and home equity lines of credit - As at October 31, 2019 (In Billions CAD) Resid Home Eq. Atlantic provinces 14.9 1.8 Quebec 34.5 3.5 Ontario 129.1 16.6 Alberta 38.8 6.3 SK and MB 18.2 2.4 B.C. and territories 52.2 8.3 TOTAL 287.7 38.9 The current crisis is not due to mortgage or credit card holders. So why increase the burden on them by charging interest on interest. Ironically the people who make RBC powerful are the ones to suffer the most. While greed is good for a business, but if the same greed starts hurting many Canadians, the same should be reined in. It will help many Canadians if even 1% of Credit card and mortgage holders try to engage RBC the Canadian way. Just write nicely to account managers at RBC to do a Canadian thing. Similarly, at least 1% of Checking and Savings account holders’, at least 1% of clients’, etc. can write to their respective account managers at RBC. This will generate enough positive momentum to restrain greed. Once RBC is effectively engaged, the rest of the banks will have to follow, benefiting many more Canadians. Stay safe.
Letter to RBC It takes a few minutes to write a letter to RBC. Please refer to my email to the bank, below. If spending a few minutes can help fellow Canadians isn’t it worth an effort? TOGETHER we are STRONGER. Stay safe. To: [email protected] Subject: Opportunity to lead by example To, Mr. Jason Drysdale, Executive Vice President, Retail and Commercial Risk at RBC Dear Mr. Drysdale, ***Please forward this email to the appropriate decision-making authorities.*** The Royal Bank of Canada is undoubtedly the industry leader in the financial markets in Canada and you are at the helm of the retail and commercial risks of the bank. The devastating economic impacts of the current crisis are being felt across Canada and the Canadians now face the most uncertain times. The federal and provincial governments have responded to the crisis with an unprecedented series of measures to alleviate the sufferings of the Canadians who have lost their income. Reducing the interest on credit card debts and deferring mortgage and credit card payments are the initial positive steps taken by the bank. These steps were offset by single negative step when RBC decided to charge interest on those deferred payments. It is my earnest request to RBC to please stop charging interest on interest on the deferred mortgage and credit card debts. This is an excellent opportunity for RBC to lead by example. ***Please forward this email to the appropriate decision-making authorities.*** Stay safe,
