HONG KONG/LONDON (Reuters) - Asia-focused lender Standard Chartered Plc (STAN.L) said it was confident of delivering better returns in the medium term as restructuring measures pay off, while its limited exposure to the U.S.-China trade dispute will also cushion the bottom line. Despite higher profits and lower bad loans, StanChart shares fell 3.5 percent in London as shareholders focused on the bank’s higher expenses from investments aimed at improving performance. StanChart CEO Bill Winters played down the impact of tensions between China and the United States. The world’s two largest economies have already imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of each other’s imports.

The bank said its ROE, a key measure of profitability, was 6.7 percent in the first half, against a medium-term target of 8 percent that analysts have described as ‘modest’ when global peers are making 10 percent or more.

“In the context of such subdued return expectations, we struggle to see overly material near-term upside for the shares,” said Ian Gordon, analyst at Investec Bank in London, Much of the bank’s increased costs have come from its efforts to improve financial crime prevention after it suffered a series of penalties and regulatory investigations between 2012 and 2014 following lapses in anti-money laundering and sanctions compliance controls, The bank last week has named Tracey McDermott as group head of compliance after the previous holder of the left the bank in June following lapis bevelled sterling silver stud set cufflinks an investigation into his behavior..

BEIJING (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s proposed tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese goods threaten a niche trade in minor metals and rare earths used in everything from stomach remedies and jet engines to consumer electronics. More than 6,000 items have been earmarked for a 10 percent import tariff, including - in some form - 32 of the 35 minerals the United States in May designated as “critical” to its economic and national security. These minerals and products based on them accounted for well over $1 billion of U.S. imports from China in 2017, and traders warn U.S. consumers will end up paying a premium if tariffs are put in place, albeit one cushioned by the recent devaluation of the yuan.
