Dear Subscriber,

As we mourn the loss of the world’s richest woman, Liliane Bettencourt, L’Oréal’s heiress, we take out time to talk about how multinationals such as L’Oréal, search for male talent in their workforce.

On the economic front, oil prices reached a four-month high of $56.56pb, 3.08% higher than early September. This was mainly due to speculation of a possible extension of the OPEC-led output cut beyond March 2018 and forecasts of rising global demand.

This edition of the Unity Bank Digest examines the impact of the climb in oil prices, the slide in inflation and more information about the latest iPhones. Furthermore, the BBC World News Komla Dumor award, which was won by Nigeria’s Amina Yuguda, was highlighted.

Finally, the Unity Bank Digest also features a piece on a traveller’s disaster plan when a hurricane or other natural disasters hit. As we are all aware, knowledge is key to staying safe, so do enjoy your read!
