UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Jan 31

Jan 31 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening flat to
3 points lower on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.
    * The UK blue chip index closed down 0.92 percent at 7118.48 points on
Monday, weighed down by losses among commodities-related stocks and financials,
though speculation about merger and acquisition activity offered some support
with Vodafone among the leading gainers. 
    * CYBG: British lender CYBG Plc, home of Clydesdale Bank and
Yorkshire Bank, said on Monday its first-quarter net interest margin was
unchanged from a year earlier, in line with its expectations, as asset yields
came under pressure. 
    * STANDARD CHARTERED: Britain's financial watchdog has received assurances
its former head will not share confidential information gleaned from her time at
the regulator when she joins banking group Standard Chartered, the
watchdog said on Monday. 
    * BRITAIN ECONOMY: Britain's consumers turned a little less gloomy in
January but there were signs that they might be starting to scale back on
spending as last year's Brexit vote pushes up inflation, a survey published on
Tuesday showed. 
    * BRITAIN INSURERS: A major $200 billion loss from a combination of a cyber
attack, U.S. hurricane and the failure of a reinsurer could strip insurers of up
to 120 percent of their net capital base, tests of insurers in London showed.
    * NANDOS/IPO: South African fast-food company Nandos Group is considering an
initial public offering (IPO), possibly in London, Bloomberg reported on Monday,
as the maker of Portuguese-style peri-peri chicken seeks to raise funds.
