  • 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.

  • Clinton roars against Trump as a hacking distraction arises

    Fresh off a spirited convention, Hillary Clinton told prospective voters Friday they face a "stark choice" in November and pressed ahead with the scalding rhetoric against her Republican rival that marked many of the speeches in Philadelphia. Another distraction arose, however, as her aides acknowledged that a hacking attack that exposed Democratic Party emails also reached into a computer system used by her own campaign. Rallying in Colorado, Donald Trump denounced Clinton's convention speech as "full of lies" and said he's starting to agree with those calling for Clinton to be locked up.
