Credit Suisse says investigating allegations of employee misconduct

National flags of Switzerland fly over the entrance of the headquarters of Swiss bank Credit Suisse in ZurichCredit Suisse said it was investigating allegations of trader misconduct reported in The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. The Wall Street Journal, citing sources familiar with the matter, said the Swiss bank had suspended an employee as part of an internal probe into electronic communications. The newspaper said Zoe Henderson, a trader on the European equities sales desk in London, was alleged to have improperly shared client information with her husband, Toby Henderson, a trader at rival bank RBC Capital Markets. The Wall Street Journal reported that the internal probe also uncovered communications from Henderson in which she complained about improper behaviour by her colleagues.


Wall Street ends mixed, energy shares fall

Trader Fred DeMarco works on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeThe S&P energy index fell 1.3 percent as the prospect of slowing demand for oil in China and Europe and concerns about an oversupply of oil brought Brent crude oil futures to their lowest price since May 31, 2013. Peabody Energy Corp was the biggest loser among the S&P energy names, falling 3.7 percent to $15.29. The strengthening dollar, which rose to its highest this year against the yen, was also seen as weighing on oil prices. We're just seeing energy pulling back a bit after a very big market rally and taking a bit of time to digest those gains," said Adam Sarhan, chief executive of Sarhan Capital in New York.

South Africa stocks advance as Bidvest jumps

South African stocks ticked higher on Monday, as Bidvest Holdings advanced after the industrial conglomerate said it could list its food unit in London, a potential windfall for investors. "We're quite fully valued across the board," said Abri du Plessis, a portfolio manager at Gryphon Asset Management in Cape Town. Bidvest, a conglomerate that spans shipping to office furniture, said it is considering a London stock market listing for its food business. The company has long acknowledged the need to separate that unit from the rest of the group, saying its true value has not been reflected fully reflected in Bidvest's share price.

South Africa's Bidvest considers London listing for food busines

By Tiisetso Motsoeneng JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African conglomerate Bidvest is considering a London stock market listing for its food business to help to fund future growth, the company said after announcing an 11 percent rise in annual profit. Bidvest's diverse operations from auto showrooms to shipping and office furniture make it South Africa's second-biggest company by sales, but it has long acknowledged the need to separate its food business from the rest of the group because its true value was not fully reflected in its share price. "Markets are particularly buoyant, money is cheap and there's quite a lot of demand for this particular asset," Bidvest Chief Executive Brian Joffe told reporters in a conference call. Bidvest, which in 2011 rejected buyout bids for the business on the grounds that they would not have benefited shareholders, said on Monday that a separate listing would unlock value because it is becoming increasingly difficult to fund growth with a South African balance sheet.
