SEC filing indicates big data provider Palantir is raising $961M, $550M of it already secured

Palantir, the secretive big data and analytics provider that works with governments and other public and private organizations to power national security, health and a variety of other services, has reportedly been eyeing up a public listing this autumn.

UK furlough scheme cannot continue forever, PM Johnson says

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned on Thursday that the job-supporting furlough scheme cannot be extended because it is not - in the long term - healthy for the economy or employees. Britain's finance ministry said earlier this week it had spent more than 25 billion pounds ($30.72 billion) on a furlough programme that is supporting 9.3 million jobs. "I think people need to recognise that the particular restrictions that furlough places on you are not, in the long-term, healthy either for the economy or for you as an employee."

Hangzhou, home to tech giant Alibaba, has encouraged a wave of migration in recent years with measures to attract talent.

Chinmay Chauhan and Abhinay Peddisetty, the co-founders of BukuWarung, want to digitize the process with a financial platform designed especially for small Indonesian businesses.

U.S., South Africa report new record coronavirus rises

The United States and South Africa have both reported record new daily coronavirus infections, with U.S. figures surpassing 50,000 cases a day for the first time, underlining the challenges still ahead as nations press to reopen their virus-devastated economies. The U.S. recorded 50,700 new cases, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University, as many states struggled to contain the spread of the pandemic, blamed in part on Americans not wearing masks or following social distancing rules.

Shoppers return and half of workers now travel to work

Britain's economic recovery is getting under way as shoppers flock to retail parks, businesses bring back furloughed workers, half of staff are now travelling into work again and the housing market appears to be shaking off its slumber. Gradual reopening of different industries has started to take effect, indicators from the Office for National Statistics suggest, as battered businesses begin to get back to work. Much of this chimes with comments from Andy Haldane, the Bank of England's chief economist, that the economy could be seeing early signs of a rapid "v-shaped" recovery. Retail parks now have around 70pc of their usual visitor numbers, up from a low of around 10pc at Easter, and...

BlackRock is not exempt from paying value added tax (VAT) on part of a service from an outside supplier to help manage its funds, the European Union's court ruled on Thursday.

U.S. pipeline company Energy Transfer  has taken the rare step of invoking force majeure - normally used in times of war or natural disaster - to prevent oil firms from walking away from a proposed expansion of the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
