Funding remains strong at Unilever scheme despite 20.5% loss

first_imgForward, Unilever’s new collective defined contribution (CDC) pension fund, has reported a 20.5% loss for the last nine months due to rising interest rates and falling equity markets.In its annual report, Forward’s board said the scheme recorded a loss on its 35% interest hedge of more than 17 percentage points, after long-term interest rates began to climb over the second quarter.At the same time, equity markets entered a period of decline, hitting returns by another 3 percentage points.In terms of funding, however, the scheme, launched in April 2015, remains in good shape, reporting a coverage of 137% as of the end of September. At launch, Unilever contributed €15m to the scheme as starting capital and paid an equal amount for indexation for active participants.The latter allowed Forward to grant workers full salary indexation of 2.15% while paying pensioners 0.44% inflation compensation based on the consumer index.At year-end, the scheme’s assets amounted to €63m, against €38m of liabilities.Forward’s board warned that both its assets and liabilities were set to grow substantially in the coming years, reducing the positive impact of the starting capital on its funding ratio.The pension fund’s investment policy is based on a 60% return portfolio and a 40% matching portfolio, with an interest hedge ranging between 30% and 50%.The board said the scheme needed to generate returns of at least 5.5% over the long term to achieve its indexation target.It pointed out, however, that part of the required return had already been factored into the valuation of its liabilities, currently based on a relatively low interest rate.“As a consequence,” the board said, “as long as the interest level remains low, a return of between 1% and 1.7% will suffice for indexation.”Forward and Progress – Unilever’s defined benefit fund, closed in April last year – share the same investment philosophy, but, owing to the former’s smaller size, as well as its members’ objectives, their asset allocation differs.In November’s How We Run Our Money, chief executive Rob Kaal says Forward’s portfolio has greater potential on the risk/return side.On the one hand, he says, its smaller size means it cannot take advantage of all the asset classes available to larger investors, such as Progress.“But the required return is slightly higher because of the different member population,” he adds. “In Forward, downside protection is particularly important because participants bear the risk, and there is no employer protection in place.”Since Unilever closed Progress, all new pensions accrual has gone to Forward.The company is awaiting a licence for its general pension fund (APF), which is to accommodate both schemes.With this arrangement, Unilever hopes to simplify governance and achieve the benefits of scale.How We Run Our Money: Unilever Dutch pension fundslast_img read more

Gold Coast home comes with a free holiday to New Zealand

first_imgThe Daimler Drive property’s spacious open floorplan makes it perfect for entertaining guests.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa15 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago“It’s lovely living here,” Mrs West said. “The Gold Coast is a wonderful place to be, we’d just like to get something a bit smaller.”She said the buyers could choose when they wanted to stay at the holiday home in Wanaka, a resort town on New Zealand’s South Island, but it was subject to availability as it was often rented out to travellers. UNIT BIGGER THAN MOST HOUSE BLOCKS FASTEST SELLING COAST SUBURBS REVEALED “It’s about an hour from Queenstown and really beautiful,” she said.“Every time I go there, it soothes the soul.“It’s a great place, especially from a skiing point of view but it’s equally as good in the summer.” The Gold Coast home on offer at 5a Daimler Drive, Bundall.THE new owners of a million-dollar Gold Coast home will be treated to a free overseas holiday.Mary and Ron West will let anyone who buys their Bundall house stay in their New Zealand holiday home for a week free of charge.They will even throw in airfares, but only from the Gold Coast or Brisbane to Queenstown.The couple hoped the offer would give house hunters more incentive to buy their five-bedroom waterfront home on Daimler Drive, which is listed under Genc and Co with an asking price of more than $1.3 million. Explore the ski fields or simply admire the stunning scenery.A week’s stay in the art deco home would cost more than $2000 at this time of year.Mrs West said travellers often visited the town in autumn.“The colours at that time are sensational – it’s most renowned for the autumn colours,” she said. The Bulletin this month reported on a Broadbeach Waters couple who were trialling a similar marketing strategy.Instead, they were including their Four Winns Horizon 190 boat and furniture in the sale of their Rio Vista Blvd property, which will go to auction on August 26.

Update 2: MPA Expands Search Area for Missing Dredger Crew

first_imgThe total search area for the three missing crew of dredger JBB De Rond 19 was expanded on September 13, according to Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).The total surface search area was expanded to 250 km2 from 130km2, while the aerial search area was expanded to 2701km2 from 770km2.Five crew members went missing following a collision between the dredger and a 30,747 dwt tanker Kartika Segara in Singapore territorial waters on September 13. Divers managed to recover two bodies belonging to the dredger’s crew members later the same day.A total of 12 crew, consisting of 11 Chinese nationals and one Malaysian, were onboard the dredger at the time of the incident. Seven were rescued and transferred to the Singapore General Hospital for medical treatment. Of the two crew members who were warded in hospital, one has since been discharged and one remains under observation.The incident happened despite collision warnings issued by MPA Singapore while the dredger was transiting the westbound lane and the tanker was departing Singapore and joining the eastbound lane of the Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS) in the Singapore Strait.The MPA continues to lead the SAR efforts with support from relevant Singapore agencies. Supported by assets from the Singapore agencies, the operations include five aircraft from Republic of Singapore Air Force, 21 vessels from MPA, the Republic of Singapore Navy, Singapore Police Coast Guard and Singapore Civil Defence Force; and eight vessels from PSA Marine and POSH SEMCO.To date, about 280 personnel have been involved in the SAR operations. The Indonesian Rescue Coordination Centre is working with Singapore authorities to assist the SAR operations with 10 vessels in Indonesian territorial waters.The Indonesian-registered Kartika Segara reported damage to its starboard bow. The vessel is stable and anchored at the Eastern Anchorage, MPA earlier said, adding that the ship’s 26 Indonesian crew did not sustain any injuries.last_img read more

GP in strife over abortion beliefs

first_imgThe Telegraph 5 October 2013A DOCTOR risks being deregistered because he allegedly refused a referral for an Indian couple who wanted to abort a healthy unborn baby girl at 19 weeks, simply because they wanted a boy.Dr Mark Hobart, 55, has been under investigation by the Medical Board of Victoria for five months, accused of having committed an offence under the state’s controversial Abortion Law Reform Act of 2008. His patient and her husband requested a sex-selection abortion after an ultrasound revealed the foetus was female.They only wanted a boy, the husband told Dr Hobart, who, as a practising Catholic, had a conscientious objection to providing the abortion.Under Victorian law, he was obliged to refer the patient to a doctor he knew would terminate the pregnancy.But Dr Hobart doesn’t know any doctor who would agree to abort a healthy baby for sex selection reasons.“The general response from my colleagues is disbelief and revulsion,” he said.http://blogs.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/mirandadevine/index.php/dailytelegraph/comments/gp_in_strife_over_abortion_beliefs/Saturdaylast_img read more

Amelia’s Ward Jets capture Under-23 basketball championships

first_imgBy Joe ChapmanTHE Amelia’s Ward Jets were able to overcome a strong Kwakwani side 70-68, to capture the Linden Amateur basketball Association/Hamid Foundation Under-23 basketball championships in dramatic style last Saturday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club hard court.Jets were able to snatch the win after the final’s Most Valuable Player (MVP), Akini Wilson, scored a reverse drive to the hoop to score with 15.2 seconds on the clock and stifled the Kwakwani unit out of the game to come away victors.After knocking off Half Mile Bulls in the semi-finals, the Jets found themselves against the outsiders Kwakwani in a final which seemed to favour the running game of the out-of-town side.With that first-quarter spurt led by Troy David, the tournament’s MVP, and his captain Leonard Primo, the Kwakwani side looked formidable but Jets remained in contention as they pulled within reach at half ime, trailing 31-37.By then Akini Wilson, Vibert Benjamin and Keison Butters had come to the party and made incisive plays down low to upset the rhythm of the un-ranked Kwakwani players. But the third quarter saw the visitors pull away once more and look for the kill as the third quarter finished 54-46 for the underdogs.However, the Jets would not go away and they pulled within a basket, adrift 54-56, with 6:18 to go. The Jets captain Shannon Cadogan then hit a floater as they remained in contention 56-58; but then David penetrated for a four-point advantage.Wilson sank a hook shot with 2 mins 28 secs left after the Kwakwani team, under pressure, turned the ball over and Butters played big with a penetration that sent his team ahead 65:64 with 1:16 remaining.Kwakwani regained the lead with just over a minute to go. Cadogan had a chance to send his team into the lead but could only hit one of two free throws for a tied game at 68. with 49.1 seciods to go.But with the tension rising with every second Kwakwani lost possession to the pressing Jets side and, after taking the ball cross court, the pass went in to Wilson on the left low post. He rounded his man and swished the ball for the go-ahead basket with 15.2 seconds remaining.Then Jets defended well to ensure victory was once again earned from pretty good team play as they were crowned the new champions and left Kwakwani dejected from that heartbreaking loss 70-68.The top shooters for the game for the winners came from Wilson with 23 points, Vibert Benjamin 17, Keison Butters 13 and George Yearwood 10. The Kwakwani best players were Tournament MVP Troy David with 18, Leonard Primo 13 and Domar Gladstone 10 points.In the third-place playoff game defending champions and top seed Half Mile Bulls pulled out a 51-49 win over fourth-ranked Retrieve Raiders. Tahquille Johnson and Terron Welch each had 15 points for the Bulls while the Raiders top scorers were Travis Sutton with 16 and Coel Winter 14.The championship trophy, donated by Gordon Moseley Promotions, was handed over by Mayor of Linden Carwyn Holland while the replicas, compliments of Save The Children Foundation, were handed over to the winning team by LABA president Lawrence Simon.The Most Valuable Player-of-the-Final Trophy, donated by LABA, went to Akini Wilson and that was presented by the Public Relations Officer of LABA.The Most Valuable Player Trophy for the Tournament, won by Kwakwani’s Troy David, was donated by World Access. It was presented by Tracey Liverpool and the second place trophy was presented by Member of Parliament Jermaine Figueira.Before the final game the teams were introduced by LABA president Lawrence Simon to Regional Executive Officer of Region Ten Gavin Clarke and Mayor of Linden Carwyn Holland.Abdulla Hamid of the Abdulla Hamid Foundation, who collaborated with LABA, thanked the many sponsors who came on board including Gordon Moseley, Save the Children Foundation and World Access.last_img read more

Hemraj, Johnson wrap up Jaguars practice game with centuries

first_imgCENTURIES from Leon Johnson and Chandrapaul Hemraj helped to ease Guyana Jaguars into a comfortable state of mind going into next week’s start of the Regional 4-Day Tournament.The national team wrapped up their training yesterday at Providence with the last of their two practice games. Looking to bat for longer periods, the players of the Johnson XI used the two days instead of three to up their scoring as they racked up 388-5 at the end of stumps.Batting one minute shy of 200 minutes, Hemraj lit up the stadium with 8 sweetly-timed fours and six massive sixes as he warmed up for the Regional 4-Dayers with a stylish 104.He shared a whopping 167-run second-wicket partnership with his national captain Johnson who broke his run drought with an identical score of 104.The Jaguars captain batted for more than 300 minutes for his century which was decorated with 9 fours and a six before he retired, allowing the other players to have some time.Tagenarine Chanderpaul also batted himself into some form with his solid 51 at number 4. Chris Barnwell also looked good for his 27 as the Jags premier players had good periods with the bat.Resuming just four runs shy of a half-century, Hemraj reached his first milestone in a casual manner. The Test opener’s confidence grew, as he found scoring easy and despite his aggression he managed to negate the good deliveries while feasting on the bad ones.His hundred came in grand fashion as he clobbered Ricardo Adams’ spin for a maximum which he celebrated with his skipper.Johnson, meanwhile, grafted a much-needed innings together; his timing and temperament seemed to be coming back as he reached his fifty.Soon after the duo’s celebration, tragedy struck as Alimohamed broke the edge of the centurion, to which keeper Kemol Savory made no mistake in collecting.After Johnson’s retirement, Chanderpaul continued to wear out the opposition’s bowling on his way to 50, topping off a strong performance for the batsmen.

Two complaints upheld by ASA against AG Communications

first_img StumbleUpon Lee Willows, YGAM: Education is central to gambling reform  July 9, 2020 Submit Share Related Articles UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 Share AG Communications, trading as Karamba.com, has been reprimanded by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), after two issues put forward by one complainant were upheld.Related to a webpage regarding the online slot Starburst, featured under the title “Tips and tricks on how to Win at Starburst,” various aspects of “The Starburst Strategy” were featured following a “the top 5 tips for winning” statement.It was also detailed that text on the advert contained a link to a further web page titled “How to Choose a Winning Slot Machine,” featuring further tips on increasing the chances of winning slot games.Issuing two complaints, it was first challenged that it could be misleading due to the implication that particular strategies would increase the chances of winning.Furthermore it was challenged that it “was socially irresponsible because it encouraged gambling behaviour that could lead to financial, social or emotional harm”.Responding AG Communications stated that the web pages were uploaded by human error, with its usual internal procedures of approval to ensure compliance with regulations, nor training regarding marketing guidelines, not followed by the personnel responsible for claims in the ad.Also stressing the low levels of user traffic attracted, Karamba emphasised that it had withdrawn the ads, commenced a full internal review and reiterated approval procedures to staff. Concluding that claims had not been substantiated, were misleading and that it was irresponsible, the ASA ruled that: “The ad must not appear again in its current form. “We told Karamba.com to ensure their future marketing communications contained nothing that was likely to encourage irresponsible gambling behaviour that could lead to financial, social or emotional harm. “Additionally, future marketing communications must not misleadingly imply that particular strategies improved a consumer’s chances of winning Starburst when that was not the case, and Karamaba.com must hold adequate substantiation in support of such claims.”last_img read more

Defense is optional, it seems, for both teams.7:01 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AUBURN. Running back Shaun Shivers takes the end-around for a 10-yard score.
