Industriens lauds own stockpicking as domestic equities return 21.9%

first_imgThe 21.9% return on Danish shares was 2.2 percentage points above the average market return.The pension fund said it had more than DKK10bn invested in the domestic equities market.Mortensen said July to September had been a challenging quarter and that the pension fund’s non-listed investments had provided a good, stable return in an otherwise falling market.He said equity markets the world over had been hit in the third quarter by nervousness due to speculation on interest-rate rises in the US, Greece’s debt problems, stagnation in China and a correction following a long bull market.“When the markets change direction, diversification and risk coverage are really important,” Mortensen said, “and in this case non-listed investments have had increasing significance, as interest rates have come down so far.”Non-listed investments, which constitute DKK29.5bn of the pension fund’s DKK133.5bn investment portfolio, generated a return of 4.2% in the third quarter alone and 13% in the first nine months of the year.Mortensen said Industriens had been building up a solid portfolio of unlisted investments over many years.“In a period such as the one we have been through, when quoted investments have been under pressure, the value this type of asset gives is clear to see,” she said.However, foreign shares, which account for DKK29bn of the portfolio, lost 0.8% between January and September, and the most heavily weighted asset type – corporate bonds, which account for DKK30.3bn of the portfolio – made a 1.8% loss in the period.Nominal Gilt-edged bonds made a 0.4% profit, and index-linked Gilts returned 0.9%. Denmark’s Industriens Pension reported a 21.9% return on its home-turf equity holdings in the first nine months of this year and said it outperformed in the domestic market through successful stockpicking.Reporting interim results, the DKK147bn (€19.7bn) labour-market pension fund posted an overall return for January to September of 3.8% before tax, compared with 8.2% in the same period last year.In absolute terms, the pretax profit was DKK4.9bn, down from DKK9.4bn.Laila Mortensen, chief executive, said: “This year our holding of Danish shares has done incredibly well once more, which proves the quality of the Danish businesses but also that we have been able to invest in the right companies at the right time.” last_img read more

TCFD launches online resource hub for investors and companies

first_imgThe hub – available at tcfdhub.org – also provides material to companies regarding how to conduct scenario analysis for different global warming outlooks.Messenger said that looking at scenarios in 15-20 years’ time would help businesses to explain and prepare strategies for different “potential avenues”, and enable them to change course when needed.CDSB, an international organisation aiming to advance environmental reporting, recently aligned its reporting framework with the TCFD recommendations.So far, CDSB has gathered reports, standards, legislation, regulations, frameworks, research papers, tools, webinars and guidance for the hub, covering various core aspects of the TCFD recommendations: governance, strategy, risk management, metrics, and targets.The TCFD guidance was published last year as a reporting framework for companies. Case studies of firms that have piloted the TCFD recommendations will be added to the hub in the next few months.More than 250 organisations have declared their support for the TCFD recommendations so far.  The Task Force is chaired by Michael Bloomberg and was established by the chair of the Financial Stability Board, Bank of England governor Mark Carney. Its recommendations are voluntary. The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) has launched an online “Knowledge Hub” aimed at helping companies to implement its recommendations.The hub provides companies with resources on how to integrate climate management in their business, disclose climate information, and become resilient against risks arising from transitioning to a low-carbon economy.Simon Messenger, managing director at the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB), which also backed the Knowledge Hub launch, said that while a full embedding of the guidance into a business’ corporate governance and business model could take several years, it was critical for businesses as investors would assess the climate-risk profile of companies in their investments.“The investment community is increasingly starting to understand that organisations which will in the short, medium or long-term provide the best returns will be those best prepared for the future world in terms of the impact that climate will have on them,” Messenger said.last_img read more

ICT firm Centric to take over ailing provider AGH

first_imgJack said Centric’s aim is to keep on growing and to serve pension funds of any scale, but noted that his firm isn’t ready yet for the larger schemes.He added that Centric expects to keep a lid on costs because of its in-house automation capabilities.Last summer, Rijswijk-based AGH saw its stucture shaken as clients worried about its financial and organisational stability. Dutch ICT firm Centric plans to take over AGH, the current provider for the pension funds for hairdressers, butchers and millers.Alberto Jack, Centric’s commercial director, said the firm was in the due diligence phase and expected to complete the take-over in the first quarter of next year.Centric, which already serves 225,000 participants and pensioners for seven pension funds, could add the trio of sector schemes to its roster with an additional 155,000 participants and pensioners.AGH’s fourth pension fund client, the €1.7bn food trade scheme AVH, has separately decided to join the €29bn multi-sector pension fund PGB. Alberto Jack at CentricAt the time, its affiliated schemes had to provide loans to improve AGH’s liquidity, while wondering whether the organisation would have sufficient scale to survive.Its clients had also lodged complaints about the quality of its pensions provision.Last year, three pension fund clients called for action, urging AGH to do the necessary to make sure all internal processes were delivered accordingly.In their annual reports for 2017, the pension schemes referred to the conditional approval by an external auditor for the ISAE 3402 type II reporting, because of insufficiently implemented processes.This led to the pensions funds carrying out additional checks themselves.Gerard van de Kuilen, chair of the €1bn hairdresser scheme (Kappers), said he considered the take over plan as a positive development.Both the pension fund for butchers (Slagers) and AGH declined to comment.A press release issued by Centric quoted Peter Krul, AGH’s director, as saying that “Centric would offer the opportunity to guarantee our continuity and improve our service provision”.Jack said that AGH’s 50 staff could join Centric in Gouda, but they would keep on operating from Rijswijk for the time being.Centric, which started as pensions provider in 2017, serves the pension funds for the furnishing sector (Meubel), wood trade (Houthandel), concrete industry (Beton), travel sector (Reiswerk), hydraulic engineering (Waterbouw) as well as the Dutch company schemes of Thales and Yara.Most of its clients had been taken over from provider Syntrus Achmea when it ceased its services to industry-wide pension funds.last_img read more

Bravo’s recovery lies in his mind

first_imgBy Rudi V. WebsterDARREN Bravo, the talented West Indies batsman, has been in a performance slump for some time now and has been receiving harsh and persistent criticism from cricket-lovers throughout the Caribbean.Darren has probably tried many different approaches to escape from his failure spiral but none has worked. His critics believe that his problems are purely technical and that the solution must therefore be a technical one.Some of them have said that he should ask Sir Garfield Sobers for advice and guidance. That would be a wise and sensible move.These critics would, however, be disappointed to find that Sir Garfield’s approach, diagnosis and solution would be very different from their own.A slump is a dramatic loss of confidence that is usually accompanied by self-doubts, confusion, poor concentration and poor performance. When a player is in a slump he often underestimates himself and his ability, and overestimates the ability of his opponent and the difficulty of the task. Players in a slump get trapped in a failure spiral where they fail, expect to fail and then fail again.Here are Sir Garfield’s feelings about slumps: “When you are in a slump you tend to fiddle around with your technique and when you do this you make matters worse. Believe me, you don’t find the cause or solutions in the body very often.“You must look into the mind, in particular, your thinking and concentration. Only after you have done this should you look at other areas. The slump may be started by something physical like an injury, but in the end, poor mental functioning is the real cause.The trigger to the slump is often trivial; a slight change in thinking and concentration can result in a major slump.  Personal problems off the field can also be a cause.“Your thought patterns change when you are in a slump. You doubt yourself, you worry about the things that might happen to you, you make the job harder than it is and you put yourself down. You become anxious and confused and don’t cope very well with the situations you face because you approach them badly and don’t use your common sense to apply your skills.“You must play your own style of game. If you try to change it and start doing things you are not used to, you won’t play well. You must focus on the basics of your game, strive to execute them well, and gradually work your way back.”Ian Chappel, one of Australia’s best cricket captains, reiterates Sir Garfield’s comments. He says, “Your confidence and concentration are messed up when you are in a slump. Players in this state often do a thorough analysis of the physical aspects of their game. They examine their technique carefully and pick it apart bit by bit. The people around them offer all sorts of advice and often suggest that they change important aspects of their game that worked well for them in the past.“They must learn to protect themselves from that type of advice. In those people who have a reasonable history of success, a slump is usually due to poor mental functioning rather than to any great technical problems.“When the pressure becomes too great your brain starts to race and everything seems to speed up, particularly your psychological clock. If you don’t do something about it, it will race around in circles and your body will follow.”Darren is handling pressure inadequately, most of which he is creating in his own mind. As soon as he makes the necessary corrections in his mind, that will change. During his recovery he should pay attention to MS Dhoni’s perception of pressure. He should also recommend it to team members during the World Cup.“Dhoni’s attitude to pressure is interesting and is probably the main reason why he has been so productive under pressure. He once told me: ‘I regard pressure as an opportunity to do well but there are times when I would rather not have it. I see it as a challenge not a threat. People say a lot of negative things about pressure. Pressure to me is just added responsibility. That’s how I look at it. It’s not pressure when God gives you an opportunity to be a hero for your team and your country’.”Darren still has a lot to offer to West Indies cricket. In the old days when we didn’t have head coaches, specialist coaches and analysts, Darren’s problem would have been solved by the collective wisdom, intelligence and experience of the captain and fellow players.In those days, players had to think for themselves, work out their own problems and stand on their own feet. The advent of professional coaches and analysts has, in many cases, dampened the players’ initiative, self-awareness and self-reliance.  The players’ knowledge, intelligence and creativity are three of the most neglected and untapped resources in today’s teams. I believe that Darren can find a solution to his problem in the collective wisdom and experience of the players in his team.Building and establishing self-confidence will be the key to his success. It is about knowing what he is doing, and being in control of what he is doing. If he doesn’t know what he is doing or is not in control of what he is doing, his confidence and performance will remain substandard.last_img read more

ATP World Tour Finals 2016: Murray Cools Knighthood Talk

first_imgAndy Murray has insisted he was too young for a knighthood after finishing the year as world No 1.The 29-year-old defeated rival Novak Djokovic at the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 Arena on Sunday to cap off the finest year of his career to date. It was a fitting finale to a brilliant season which saw him win a second Wimbledon crown, become the first man to win successive Olympic gold medals and end the year with 24 victories on the bounce, which was enough for him to overhaul Djokovic at the summit of the game.Murray already has an OBE to his name, awarded after his maiden Wimbledon title in 2013, but there have been calls for a knighthood in the New Year’s Honours list – something the Scot thinks he may be too young for.“It’s the highest honour you can get in this country,” Murray said. “But I don’t know, I feel like too young for something like that.“I don’t think about that stuff much, really. When I win any award or am presented with anything it is nice because it is recognition for what you have given your life to, up to now anyway.“However, I’m still young and there are still a lot of things that can go wrong, I could still mess up and make mistakes – do stuff. I’m just trying to keep doing what I am doing, working hard, and achieving things.”Murray toppled Djokovic from the top of the rankings a fortnight ago and he had to outperform the Serb in London to keep his No 1 ranking through the winter months.He did so in style with victories over the players ranked No 7 (Marin Cilic), No 5 (Kei Nishikori), No 3 (Stan Wawrinka), No 4 (Milos Raonic) and No 2 (Djokovic).Murray was the long-time world No 4 behind Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, but after a spectacular run of five titles this autumn, he is enjoying being the man to beat for the first time in his career.“When I was always fourth in the world, I never liked losing, but it didn’t have the same kind of impact because I wasn’t No 1 and it wasn’t like I was holding on to something,” he said. “Fourth place in the world is still great but it isn’t No 1.“Maybe now, especially the last few months when I have had that goal and have been trying to get there, I want to stay there. I feel motivated to keep going.“I’ve enjoyed the last five or six months the most I have in my entire career. That is probably because I have won a lot, so I want to keep going.” Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

The unified light heavyweight champion of the world, widely acknowledged by many as one of the best pugilist of all-time announced his retirement from the sport on Thursday.In his statement made official via his website, the 2004 Olympic champion attributed his decision to physical challenges“I want to be clear – I am leaving because my body can no longer put up with the rigors of the sport and therefore my desire to fight is no longer there. If I cannot give my family, my team, and the fans everything that I have, then I should no longer be fighting.” – WardProfile:Born Andre Michael Ward (February 23, 1984), he retired with an undefeated record of 32–0 and held eight world titles in two-weight classes, including the unified WBA (Undisputed), IBF, and WBO light heavyweight titles between 2016 and 2017.He also held the unified WBA (Super), WBC, Ring, and lineal super middleweight titles between 2009 and 2015.

Dr Pamboe: Call off Ghana Premier League season

first_imgCAF and GFA medical officer Dr Prince Pamboe has proposed a cancellation of the current Ghana Premier League season due to the Covid – 19 pandemic.According to him the effects of the pandemic will be felt in the immediate months after it has been suppressed and thus measures must be put in place before the league can be resume.“The reason why I made that call is because pandemics of this nature which has affected the entire globe don’t vanish overnight.Even if it vanishes within two or three months there are so many things that need to be done before the league can resume.Players and league personnel must be tested,while also ensuring that some stakeholders mainly the players are taken through some psychological training.The League does not have the capacity to carry lout these things that’s why cancelling the season will make sense,” he told Citi Sports in an interview.The 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season has been suspended indefinitely since March 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country.last_img read more

Dodgers’ late-arriving offense carries them past Padres

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “All the way around — Corey, when you know there’s an open base, you don’t know if they’re gonna pitch to you or not. You know he’s towards the end, but he hit a good pitcher’s pitch and roped it out,” Roberts said. “And Cody going with the pitch on contact and to go hard to give Dino (Ebel, third base coach) a chance. It was a great, aggressive send by Dino and Cody’s foot speed was a big run for us.”An inning later, the Padres’ defense opened the door again. After retiring the first two batters, Padres reliever Craig Stammen rushed to field Austin Barnes’ dribbler in front of the plate and threw over the head of the first baseman. Barnes went to second on the error and scored when Pollock came off the bench with a two-out RBI double that gave the Dodgers the lead.In the eighth inning, a balk moved Bellinger into scoring position for Chris Taylor to single him home. And Pollock led off the ninth with a solo home run, his third home run in his past six games. Pollock is off to a 12-for-33 start with four doubles, three home runs and six RBI in 10 games.“I slept about maybe one hour last night,” said Pollock, whose daughter Maddi was born prematurely in March and only recently was allowed to leave the hospital. “Maddi and Kate (Pollock’s wife) got to drive out here. It was the first time she was really sleeping next to our bed. I don’t know — maybe it helped me.”The late offensive life made a winner of May on a career night for the young right-hander — he struck out a career-high eight in a career-long six innings. None of the strikeouts was more impressive than the one that ended the first inning. A 99-mph two-seam fastball to Manny Machado moved so much laterally it nearly burrowed into Machado’s hip.“I couldn’t imagine a better pitch as far as on the filth-meter,” Roberts said. “It started middle in, and I think it ended up six, eight inches. That just speaks to the depth and the run. And now you’re talking about 99 miles an hour. It made a really, really good hitter look pretty bad.”May gave up just three hits but one was a two-out, RBI double by Fernando Tatis Jr. and another was Jake Cronenworth’s first major-league home run.“I was commanding both sides of the plate very well and my cutter was working,” May said. “Curveball was back foot. The one that I missed was a mistake and he hit it pretty far. But I mean other than that I felt like tonight I took a big step forward.”May’s electric stuff has been eye-catching since he made his major-league debut a year ago. He shrugged off questions about the movement on pitches like the one to Machado.“Honestly, I just throw it and that’s kind of how it comes out of my hand,” he said. “Grip it and rip it. That’s kind of my thought process with every pitch. I just let the grip do the work.”Given a lead to protect in the seventh, the Dodgers’ bullpen did the rest. Pedro Baez worked an uneventful seventh. Blake Treinen hit Josh Naylor to start the eighth (the fifth HBP in the game) but struck out Tatis, Grisham and Machado to strand Naylor at second.And in the ninth, Kenley Jansen retired the side in order.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Lamet’s undoing started with a 96-mph fastball up and in to Justin Turner with two outs in the sixth inning. Like inside fastballs have a tendency to do, it hit Turner. This one thumped into the back of Turner’s shoulder, the 74th time Turner has been plunked as a Dodger, setting the franchise record.More importantly, it extended the inning for Bellinger, who punched a single through the middle to break up Lamet’s no-hitter and bring up Corey Seager.It has been a race between Seager and A.J. Pollock for the Dodgers’ hottest hitter in the delayed season. Seager fell behind Lamet 1-and-2 but worked a nine-pitch at-bat, finally sending Lamet’s third 3-and-2 pitch into center field, driving in Turner.“That Seager at-bat was huge,” Roberts said gratefully.When center fielder Trent Grisham fumbled the ball, Bellinger ran aggressively around third and scored to tie the game when Padres catcher Francisco Mejia couldn’t field the throw home. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Like Dustin May’s fastball, the Dodgers’ offense showed some late life Tuesday night.No-hit into the sixth inning, the Dodgers scored in every inning after that, coming from behind to beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 at Petco Park.PreviousDodgers third baseman Justin Turner warms up during the seventh inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, Aug. 2, 2020, in Phoenix.
