Man City and and the Financial Fair Play regulation

Man City

Alleged overspending, bloated sponsorship agreements and falsification of records have led to a 2-year ban for Manchester City from all UEFA club competitions. Despite a settlement agreement with the UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) in 2014, the club has also been fined €30m (£25m).

Writing for Henley Business School's Leading Insights, Professor Adrian Bell and PhD student Mr Mobolaji Alabi look into the Financial Fair Play regulation and its criticisms. Manchester City's annual accounts are explored from 2005-2018, including employee benefits, the cost of player acquisitions and revenue streams. Read the full piece here.

The adoption of futures contracts on Bitcoin: A new era of cryptocurrency

27 November 2017
According to the Financial Times, 31st October 2017, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) is expected to offer cash-settled futures contracts on Bitcoin by the end of 2017. CME, the world’s largest exchange by market value, has offered futures contracts on agricultural products, metals, energy, equity indexes, foreign exchange rates, interest rates, real estate, and even weather. With the increasing popularity of cryptocurrencies, the CME has finally decided to enter into the unregulated digital asset market. Futures contracts on Bitcoin may help investors to either hedge or speculate on the future price of Bitcoin. Because almost all futures contracts are cash-settled in CME, traders do not need to actually deliver Bitcoin.
