How JPMorgan and BlackRock are thinking of playing fund manager M&A

  • Top brass from JPMorgan and BlackRock, among the firms to kick off earnings season with their results, said Tuesday that they expect more consolidation in the wealth- and asset-management industries.
  • Pressures on money managers have fueled a flurry of acquisitions in those areas this year, and analysts questioned executives about their own deal ambitions, albeit coming from different corners of the market. 
  • JPMorgan boss Jamie Dimon said the bank would be “very interested” in deals in that space, and BlackRock finance chief Gary Shedlin said the firm was focused on targets that could expand its technology, global distribution, and private markets capabilities.
  • Last week, Morgan Stanley said it would buy investment manager Eaton Vance in a deal valued at $7 billion just days after it closed on its E-Trade acquisition.

Windows 10 Is Adding a Task Manager Dedicated to Gaming

Windows 10 is adding a Task Manager widget within the Xbox Game Bar to help you manage your computer’s resources without leaving a game.As spotted by WindowsCentral, the new ‘Resources’ widget lets you monitor which programs are causing the most strain on your computer, assess why your in-game performance may be hitching and close programs quickly without tabbing out. You’ll also be able to see how much load there is on your CPU, RAM, DISK and GPU, much like the traditional Task Manager application. It’s a neat timesaver that means you won’t have to alt-tab or hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE so often to figure out your in-game issues.

Windows 10 To Add a Lightweight Gaming Task Manager

windows 10 mds

If your PC gaming performance is occasionally sluggish with no apparent reason, then often it’s in your benefit to check out the task manager and see if there’s anything happening there on your system (perhaps in the background) that’s gobbling up a pretty hefty chunk of your resources. It might, for example, help you identify that gaming while having Google Chrome with a dozen tabs open usually isn’t a good idea!

With that being said, however, task manager isn’t an entirely friendly proposition if you’re planning to check it out while gaming. Often it can cause the application to completely freeze up which, by proxy, doesn’t really give you an entirely accurate view of what’s happening. It’s the equivalent of checking your heart rate while exercising, but only doing so during ‘rest’ periods.

In a report via PCGamesN, however, a sneaky peek at the latest Windows 10 insider build has
