Emily Ratajkowski Joins LOOPS as Partner & Creative Director

Founded in 2020 by Colin Peek, Tushar Adya and Aditya Julka, LOOPS is a lifestyle beauty brand redefining how modern people take care of themselves today – creating innovative, impactful, and clean products that reimagine personal “beauty habits”.  Its collection of simply-formulated, highly effective face masks that are inclusive and clean are the foundation of the brand’s portfolio. Expansion within this category and amplifying the brand’s lifestyle and social propositions will be driven by Ratajkowski’s creative vision. 

“Emily is a global icon and revered tastemaker. We couldn’t be more excited to partner together around a vision, a concept, that lifestyle beauty is simply how modern people take care of themselves today, how they look and feel their best,” explains Colin Peek, Co-founder of Loops.

“I’m thrilled to be working with the team at Loops. Their product speaks for itself but it was Loop’s simplified and modern approach to beauty that truly resonated with me,” explains Emily Ratajkowski.

Ratajkowski is an actress, activist, model, writer & an award-winning entrepreneur. She is also the founder of the clothing line Inamorata, a direct-to-consumer company with an all-female workforce that sells online. Ratajkowski was a Fashion Media Award winner for Entrepreneur of the Year in 2019.

LOOPS is Ratajkowski’s first official entrepreneurial foray into the beauty market; however, her decorated career as an actress, cover star & model for some of the world’s biggest publications and brands has propelled Ratajkowski as global leader for beauty, cultural and fashion trends. Ratajkowski is currently the face of L’Oréal’s hair care line, Kerastase, and formerly of Paco Rabanne’s fragrance Pure XS.

Bank of America joins peers in improving economic outlook

Bank of America joins peers in improving economic outlook

A stabilising US economy helped Bank of America report a bounce in third-quarter earnings, as credit costs fell towards pre-pandemic levels.

Net income of $4.9bn, or 51 cents per share, compared with $3.5bn in the second quarter, and $5.8bn in the same period in 2019. Wall Street analysts had expected 49 cents a share.

The key factor in the rebound was a big decline in provision for bad loans, at $1.4bn, down from $5.1bn the quarter before, following a trend set by JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup when they reported results on Tuesday.

Total revenue at the bank, at $20.3bn, was slightly short of what analysts had expected, and reflected continued pressure on margins as a result of falling interest rates. Net interest margin — the difference between the bank’s funding costs and its lending yields — was 1.7 per cent in the quarter, down from 2.4 per cent the year before.

The bank’s capital markets operations showed softer growth than JPMorgan and Citigroup, with fixed-income trading revenues increasing slightly from the year before and equities trading rising by 6 per cent. Investment banking fees were up 15 per cent from the year before.

BofA shares have fallen by 29 per cent year to date, slightly outperforming US banking indices.
