Betting the house: investors demand higher premiums for risky Australian mortgage bonds

Investors in Australian mortgage bonds are demanding higher premiums to buy the riskiest tranches of new debt, as a slowing economy stokes concerns a property downturn could get worse and increase home loan defaults. High-yield investors are receiving up to 40 basis points more than they were last year to buy the lower-rated and unrated portions, according to an analysis of recent deals by large lenders including AMP, National Australia Bank and Members Equity Bank. "When you are looking at those lower unrated tranches, they are deteriorating as one would expect at the late stage of the [property] cycle," said George Boubouras, chief investment officer at Atlas Capital.

China's home prices growth fastest in 5 months, raises policy challenge

New home prices in China rose at their fastest pace in five months in May, complicating government efforts to keep frothy housing markets under control as it rolls out more stimulus for the slowing economy.

The Man Who Inherited Australia's Downturn Just Isn't That Fazed

(Bloomberg) -- Josh Frydenberg mulled a tennis career before going on to study economics and law, earn degrees from Oxford and Harvard Universities, and vault up the ranks of the Liberal Party. His latest challenge: to graduate from retail politics to top economic official charged with arresting a downturn.Since the 47-year old was sworn in as Treasurer last August, annualized economic growth has slumped to a meager 1.2% from almost 4%; the employment outlook has worsened with advertisements falling in eight of 10 months; and property prices tumbled even faster -- prompting households to slash spending.That's all put the economy on track for its weakest fiscal year since the last...

Egypt former president Morsi dies after collapsing in court

Egypt's first democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi, an Islamist who was ousted after one year of divisive rule, died after collapsing in court on Monday, the attorney general said.

Hong Kong opposition movement largely without leaders
Hong Kong opposition movement largely without leaders

The largely youth-driven movement of black-clad protesters challenging Hong Kong's government over an unpopular extradition bill is a coalition operating without a clear leadership structure.

The collection of student groups, political and non-governmental organizations, labor unions and teachers' associations that helped run the demonstration, and a string of earlier ones, ensured the...
