Initiative Deutsche Zahlungssysteme e.V: Survey on e-mobility among consumers - Card payment needs to be possible at charging stations throughout Europe30.11.2021 13:40:23 CET | Press release

(Berlin, Germany): Many people in Europe would like to be able to charge their electric vehicle (EV) at public charging stations and to pay with their own bank card. More than two-thirds of the respondents confirm this in a recent study conducted by infas quo GmbH on behalf of the Initiative Deutsche Zahlungssysteme e.V. in selected European countries. Currently, payment options at charging stations across Europe are still dominated by proprietary, closed loop payment solutions from charging station operators and local electricity providers - spontaneous payment by common debit and credit cards is often not possible. With the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR), the European Parliament now has it in its hands to meet the interest of European citizens in easily accessible and non-discriminatory payment solutions for electric charging in legislation. Attitudes to card payments are similar across borders To obtain a balanced picture of consumers’ payment preferences across

DMSA: Evergrande technically defaulted, forcing HSBC and other international banks to write off 197 billion US dollars1.11.2021 08:33:51 CET | Pressemelding

(Berlin, Germany): For the second time in a week, China Evergrande Group has apparently technically defaulted on interest payments to international investors. This further manifests the bankruptcy of the real estate developer. The real estate group has accumulated a mountain of debt totaling $305 billion. In the eight weeks to the end of the year alone, nearly $338 million in interest will be due. Should the Evergrande insolvency not only drag down China's real estate sector, but the entire economy of the country, we will see even bankruptcies of major international banks - such as HSBC, fears DMSA senior analyst Dr. Marco Metzler. Today, the grace period for overdue interest of $47.5 million on an off-shore bond issued by the second largest real estate developer in China ended. But there has been no official confirmation of any payment of that interest by the close of business at Hong Kong banks. There are only unconfirmed media reports about an interest payment that is said to have b
