‘Boutique’ fuel for Midwest not the way to fix E15’s summer dilemma: fuel makers Comments are due later this month on the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to grant a fuel policy shift that would clear a path for eight Midwest states to offer a gasoline blend containing 15% ethanol year-round. While ethanol producers were furious that the proposed policy change wouldn’t go into effect in time for this summer, some oil refiners insist even the 2024 planned implementation date is too soon. American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers Senior Director of Fuel and Vehicle Policy Patrick Kelly joined the podcast to lay out challenges the group sees with this call for a new Midwest gasoline blend. He also provided his take on calls for emergency waivers and legislation to address the provision of E15.

Appetite for exploration seen in latest offshore oil, gas lease sale US Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 259, held at the end of March, was closely watched as the first oil and gas auction offered in that area since November 2021. And given that expectations weren’t too high, the auction actually turned out quite well. It attracted 353 bids across 313 blocks and captured $264 million in apparent high bids – the highest total in six years. S&P Global Commodity Insights senior editor Starr Spencer spoke with George Laguros, a senior research analyst with S&P Global, about the some of the “surprising” results of the offshore lease sale and some interesting, if not unusual, bidding patterns pursued by some of the participants.

Politics or economics? OPEC+ surprises market with oil supply cuts OPEC+ surprised market watchers with plans to make more than 1.6 million b/d of voluntary oil supply cuts, starting in May. On the podcast, Ben Salisbury, director of research and head energy policy analyst at Height Capital Markets, delves into some of the producer bloc’s motivations for pursuing crude oil production cuts while prices remain relatively high and what it could mean for US drivers at the pump as well as the Biden administration’s plans to refill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Salisbury also hit on implications for the already strained US-Saudi relationship as calls for retaliation have again been floated and whether the price cap on Russian crude could withstand any potential supply constraints.

UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Culture wars' We hear from ECB President Lagarde. President Lagarde’s public comments do not normally contain much novelty or insight for investors. Recent ECB speakers have tended to highlight divisions, and it seems that rate hikes will continue on autopilot until the data makes it very obvious that this is a bad idea.
Top of the Morning: CIO Strategy Snapshot – Rhyme time Our conversation draws parallels to market performance at the start of 2023, and that which investors have experienced in recent weeks, and what might it all mean for the near-to-medium term market outlook. We examine why markets might be vulnerable to a pullback and how to position your portfolio accordingly. Featured is Jason Draho, Head of Asset Allocation Americas, UBS Chief Investment Office. Host: Daniel Cassidy
UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Better than expected, as expected' As expected, China’s first quarter GDP was better than expected. Beijing’s rush to emphasize exports a few weeks ago may have helped flatter the numbers. Higher-frequency data showed consumers spending more, but continuing to save more as well. The spending data was helped by restaurant spending—the international spillover from service sector spending is not zero, but certainly less than spending on goods.
UBS On-Air: Paul Donovan Daily Audio 'Let them not eat cake' UK inflation data slowed more slowly than had been expected. Food prices are rising at an astonishing 19.2% y/y (cake prices are partly to blame, it seems). This inflation has little to do with farmers, and as profit-led inflation, this is likely to be an increasing political focus. French finance minister Le Maire made strong comments on profit-led food price increases yesterday. UK consumer durable goods disinflation and energy price disinflation continues.

No matter where you’re tuning in from – at some point, you’re likely to have heard that independent small businesses are the backbone of your economy.

But to date, that backbone of entrepreneurs and small business owners has often lacked the proper support needed from financial services.

According to the World Economic Forum, 67% of small and mid-sized companies globally are fighting for survival.

Our panel of experts discuss: the banking options for SMEs globally, the challenges across markets, and what could the future be in this space.

As an industry, we can talk endlessly about positive user journeys and financial enrichment. But, when it comes to the tough topics it’s a little more challenging to open up.

No topic seems more taboo for the financial services industry than debt. But with people in the UK owing £1.8 billion in 2023 and millions of Americans currently carrying some form of debt – this is a subject far too important to ignore.

We’ve put together a panel of amazing experts to discuss why debt is such a taboo subject, how to help people avoid unworkable debt, and how we improve the debt collection process.
