Watch Out, the New Banks Have Arrived | FC Business Intelligence

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 25 November 2014

Old meets new in the banking space as FC Business Intelligence announces its line-up of attending organisations at the Customer Analytics and Insights in Retail Financial Services networking summit. Fifty attendees are already registered to attend coming from a diverse range of companies like Knab Bank, Virgin Money, Swedbank, the Cooperative Bank, Barclays, Raiffeisen Bank, Lloyds and many more.

For news on the line up of attendees, go here http://bit.ly/1zRW450

This year Virgin Money has moved even further in to the retail banking space by offering current accounts (LoveMoney, https://www.lovemoney.com/news/31618/virgin-money-launches-first-current-account). This is certainly not the first of the new financial offerings to enter the market over the past few years.

Two of the UKs biggest retailers have exploded on to the banking scene with M&S Bank and Sainsburys Bank. Metro Bank has started up as the first new high street bank in over 100 years. Newest arrivals Paragon Bank and Axis Bank have also emerged as new contenders to the market.

Across the waters, continental Europe is not being left behind with Netherlands-based Knab Bank and Germany-based Fidor Bank both internet banks standing in the spotlight as new, innovative and trendy.

Competition in banking is fiercer than ever moving in to 2015. The battle to reduce churn and focus on new onboarding strategies has led financial services in an epic race to the bottom.

In a recent survey 77% agreed that their organisation has changed significantly over the past 5 years to accommodate for improved data and analytics functionality (FC Business Intelligence, http://www.customer-analytics-in-finance.com/media-centre.php).

Meeting this rivalry face on, the Customer Analytics and Insights in Retail Financial Services networking event (http://www.customer-analytics-in-finance.com/index.php) puts this changing banking scene under the microscope. It analyses the nuts and bolts underpinning the successes being made using data and analytics to better corroborate marketing and digital platforms.

UK Supermarket giants, Tesco Bank has also not been shy to claim its territory in this space since its arrival over 7 years ago. Earlier this year, John Halpin, Head of Customer Analytics joined the inaugural event where he sat amongst a variety of players including AIB Bank, BNP Paribas, Royal Bank of Scotland and Santander. He commented that he saw awide variety of topics and debate [and] new useful insights at the show.

The question must be raised, what can new banks do that old ones cant? The event will bring together new financial players to speak about their emergence on to the scene and will look at what traditional players are doing to counter their challengers.

Medicaid Expansion Spurs Enrollment, Premium Revenue Increases in First Half of 2014, New AIS Report Finds

(PRWEB) September 11, 2014

After several years in development, the expansion of the Medicaid program is now showing real results. Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) the industry-leading publisher of Medicare Advantage News, AIS's Medicare and Medicaid Market Data: 2014 and the authoritative AISs Directory of Health Plans has analyzed the latest available data on Medicaid expansion efforts in Medicaid Expansion: Mid-Year 2014 Results, a new report that provides a thorough picture of how the Medicaid market is shaping up right now.

With data comparing Medicaid enrollment stats from the June/July timeframe to the beginning of 2014, analysis in Medicaid Expansion: Mid-Year 2014 Results has found:

Enrollment in all Medicaid programs, including SCHIP and other related programs, is up nearly 11% nationally during the first half of 2014.
21 managed care companies have entered the Medicaid market for the first time in states with Medicaid expansion programs.
In total, existing plans that increased enrollment in Medicaid expansion states have gained more than 3.9 million members, and these new members represent 5% of the total managed Medicaid membership in these states.
Based on a sample group, premium revenue is up by an average of 10.2%.

Through clearly presented charts, tables and narrative summaries, Medicaid Expansion: Mid-Year 2014 Results makes it easy for users to:

Compare changes in Medicaid enrollment between participating states and non-participating states to help quantify outcomes.
Analyze the expanding or shrinking market share by state, by company or by county and see how new Medicaid plans are faring.
Learn which companies have earned the most market share in each state and how they have balanced new revenue opportunities with increased operational spending.
Determine the percentage of a participating states population that is enrolled in Medicaid, and how that number has changed over the first half of 2014.
Understand which counties in each state are experiencing the greatest enrollment increases.
Identify the top issues for states that arent participating in Medicaid expansion, and the potential cost savings they are missing.
Assess the financial impact for companies that made investments or acquisitions to enter certain state Medicaid markets in anticipation of expansion.
Understand the extent to which Medicaid expansion is actually resulting in greater enrollment and premium revenue for plans operating in those states.

The research and data tracking in Medicaid Expansion: Mid-Year 2014 Results is conducted by AISs in-house Directory & Databases division, which works exclusively for AIS to collect the latest available Medicaid enrollment per company, state and county. Sources are state Medicaid agencies and Medicaid managed care organizations.

Healthcare Corporation of America Announces Going Dark

Denville, New Jersey (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

Healthcare Corporation of America (OTCQB: HCCA) announced today that it filed a Form 15 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to voluntarily deregister its common stock under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Act"). The Company is eligible to deregister its common stock by filing a Form 15 under Section 12(g) of the Act because the Company currently has fewer than 300 holders of record of its securities. The Company expects that its obligation to file periodic reports, such as Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K, under Section 13(a) of the Act will be suspended upon the filing of the Form 15. The deregistration under Section 12(g) of the Act is expected to be effective 90 days after the filing of the Form 15 at which time the Companys other filing requirements under Section 13(a) of the Act will terminate.

The Companys common stock is currently traded on the OTCQB, operated by OTC Markets Group, a centralized electronic quotation service for over-the-counter securities. The Company expects that its common stock will continue to be quoted on the OTCQB until its periodic reporting obligations under Section 15(d) of the Act are suspended, at which time the Company anticipates its common stock will be traded on OTC Pink Market, so long as market makers demonstrate an interest in trading in the Company's common stock. However, there is no assurance that trading in the Company's common stock will continue on the OTC Pink Market or on any other securities exchange or quotation medium.

The decision of the Company's Board of Directors to deregister its common stock was based on the consideration of numerous factors, including the large costs of preparing and filing periodic reports with the SEC, the increased outside accounting, audit, legal and other costs and expenses associated with being a public company, the burdens placed on Company management to comply with reporting requirements, and the low trading volume in the Company's common stock. After deregistration of the Companys common stock is effective and its periodic reporting requirements are suspended, the Company intends to continue to provide interim unaudited financial information and annual audited financial information to its stockholders.

Natasha Giordano, the Companys Chief Executive Officer, commented, These actions are designed to reduce our operating costs. The consequences of remaining an SEC-reporting company, which includes significant costs and management time associated with regulatory compliance, outweighed the current benefits of being a publicly reporting company.
