Siemens appoints finance chief Kaeser as CEO

Finance Committee vows action on stock market in emergency meeting

“This company is on the right course,” he added, wishing his successor “good luck and much success.” Kaeser, unlike Loescher, has spent his career with Siemens, which he joined in 1980. He has been chief financial officer since May 2006. “Our company is certainly not in crisis, nor is it in need of major restructuring,” Kaeser said. “However, we’ve been too preoccupied with ourselves lately and have lost some of our profit momentum vis-a-vis our competitors.” He pledged “to put Siemens back on an even keel and create a high-performance team” and said that, by this fall, Siemens will “address the medium-term prospects and our vision for the company.” Siemens said shortly after announcing the leadership change that its net profit rose 43 percent in the April-June period, its fiscal third quarter, after it spun off its lossmaking light bulb business.

Wielding Finance, Innovation And Policy To Make An Impact In Climate Change

This is an earthquake. The activity of the stock exchange fell on a large scale, from a turnover of NIS 2.4 billion until a few years ago to [NIS 900 million today], and many companies are delisted while few join said committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky, vowing to do whatever was necessary to fix the situation. The exchange hit a crisis in recent weeks, with both its CEO Esther Levanon and its chairman Saul Branfeld announcing their resignations, as some of Israels biggest listed companies took significant plunges. Israel Securities Authority chairman Shmuel Hauser, who has been publicly critical of the exchanges leadership, called for fundamental structural change at the exchange.

Developed countries and policy tools like the Green Climate Fund will play a critical catalytic role in financing green, climate friendly growth. Public financing need to be designed with private finance mobilization in mind blending small amounts of public funds with the flexibility and accountability that will create investor confidence, make for attractive investments, and ensure maximum impact for the public finance that is allocated. We have learned from the Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) and other tools how to blend public and private finance effectively, and now need to build the GCF and other solutions with these lessons in mind. What character and approach do you think new institutions in this space will need to take in order to be effective, both as investors and as part of the international community?
