  • Canada's Tangerine Bank targets million new customers

    By Matt Scuffham TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian bank Tangerine is targeting a million new customers over the next few years as it looks to shake up Canada's retail banking market, which has been dominated by its six biggest lenders. Tangerine is owned by Canada's third-biggest lender, Bank of Nova Scotia , but has positioned itself as a challenger to the country's biggest consumer banks, having so far built up a market share of 6 percent to 7 percent. Tangerine, previously ING Direct, was rebranded after Scotiabank bought the business from Netherlands-based parent ING Groep in 2012 for C$3.1 billion.

  • Boeing says it could end 747 production

    "If we are unable to obtain sufficient orders and/or market, production and other risks cannot be mitigated, we could record additional losses that may be material, and it is reasonably possible that we could decide to end production of the 747," Boeing said on Wednesday. Boeing said it had canceled plans to increase production of the 747 to one plane per month from 2019, and stuck to its plan of halving the production rate in September. "On the 747 program, we decided to reduce future production expectations and revenue assumptions to account for current and anticipated weakness in the air cargo market," Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg said on a post-earnings call with analysts.

  • Vancouver Realtor probed for 'how-to' email on avoiding new property transfer tax

    The Real Estate Council of B.C. has told a Vancouver real estate agent to stop advising clients on how to avoid the proposed 15 per cent foreign buyers' tax announced earlier this week by the provincial government. The council is investigating Century 21 Realtor Mike Stewart after he circulated an email to clients that describes how a foreign buyer of a pre-sale condo can skirt the new transfer tax, chiefly by selling their contract to buy the pre-sale unit to friends or family who are Canadian citizens or residents. "For those of you who do not have that option, we may be able to sell the pre-sale to a third party at a profit to you," the email goes on to say.
