Generial views of 52 Cadogan Square, London. An historic Grade II listed building on one of London’s most desirable squares is set to be transformed into a £60 million mansion. See SWNS story SWHOUSE. Number 52 Cadogan Square was built in the 19th century for Thomas Andros de la Rue, who wanted a stunning Queen Anne Revival style home. It was later the residence of sugar tycoon Vernon Tate, who lived there until his death in 1950s. After this, the property remained in Tate & Lyle ownership and was used as accommodation for executives visiting London. But after being vacant for four years, the property is in need of significant refurbishment and architects, acting on behalf of The Cadogan Estate, have submitted plans to return it to a single family home. The result will be one of London's finest recently refurbished homes which integrates a sizeable mews property at the rear.

"A central question now is are there similar creditors to Lehman's, investors that have effectively lent hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars to Greece when they don't know they have done so and will be shocked if a default leads to losses on their investments? Few Americans know what assets they really own by owning shares in mutual funds."

"Where does HSBC think it will be able to relocate? Hong Kong? Isn't the concern about China the reason why it moved to the UK in the first place. Singapore? In the long term is that where it wants to be? New York where the regulators are even more difficult? It does not really have too many choices but to sit tight."
