Switzerland, India signed agreement to catch tax evaders

India and Switzerland signed an automatic exchange of financial information deal which complements govt’s crackdown on black money.

The 'Joint Declaration' for implementation of AEOI signed on Tuesday between India and Switzerland provides that both countries will start collecting data in accordance with the global standards in 2018 and exchange it from 2019 onwards.

US Election: Markets don't like uncertainty (By Mirova)

When it became clear that Donald Trump would win the US presidential election, markets initially turned very red, ironically the color of the Republican Party.
