Overview

Ruth Davidson quit as leader of the Conservative Party in Scotland citing Brexit and personal reasons, delivering a blow to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson after she led a resurgence for the party in Scotland during her eight years in charge.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Brexit negotiators will meet twice a week with European Union officials next month in an attempt to rework the Brexit agreement that Britain’s parliament has repeatedly rejected.

Switzerland’s UBS Group AG appointed former Credit Suisse Group AG executive Iqbal Khan as co-president of its wealth management division as the company moves to address concerns about succession planning and lacklustre performance.

Tullow Oil Plc said its deal to sell significant stake of its undeveloped Lake Albert project in Uganda to France’s Total SA and China’s China National Offshore Oil Corporation CNOOC has been called off due to a tax dispute with the Ugandan authorities.
