Trustee of BT fund calls for more risk-sharing in infrastructure investment

first_imgVehicles must be developed to allow for pension investment in small-scale infrastructure projects, a trustee of one of the UK’s largest pension fund has said.Donald MacDonald, trustee at the £40bn (€48.3bn) BT Pension Scheme, said infrastructure investment by the industry faced an uphill struggle, as there was too much money “chasing insufficient opportunity”.He said BTPS had been in competition for infrastructure projects with the UK’s Universities Superannuation Scheme and Railpen Investments, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, as well as Australian Super funds.MacDonald told the RI Europe conference in London: “What we need to be doing is talking to the governments and inter-governmental organisations to look at how we package projects – because a lot of the projects, for pension funds, are actually sub-optimal. “We just haven’t got the resources and finance to manage loads and loads of small investment in infrastructure opportunities.“Things need to be bundled, risk needs to be shared. We need to look at better ways of mutual investment and co-investment vehicles, which is becoming much more part of the scene.”MacDonald, speaking at the event in his capacity as chairman of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, said the UK’s Green Investment Bank and the European Investment Bank would be “quite critical” in allowing for such co-investment deals, as they were building alliances with private sector partners.He added that many governments and civil servants had only recently begun to understand that the construction risk of infrastructure investments was not of interest to pension funds.He said other parts of the financial market were simply better equipped for such ventures.Speaking of the BPTS’s annual pension payments in excess of £2bn, he said it needed to have a “very conservative risk profile”.“Although, interestingly, both myself and others, as we become more familiar with infrastructure issues, are starting to look at [construction] risk and possibly doing more in that area,” he said.BTPS was among the three pension funds to withdraw its support from the Pension Protection Fund-backed Pensions Infrastructure Platform (PIP) earlier this year, claiming at the time that its direct investment programme was the “most appropriate solution” for the fund. However, the two other funds – the London Pensions Fund Authority and the BAE System pension scheme – both cited concerns over the risk/return profile of the PIP.last_img read more

Donegal families fleeing domestic violence struggling with rising rents

first_imgThe cost and standard of rental accommodation for those seeking housing assistance through the Donegal Domestic Violence Service have been called into question. The Tirconnaill Tribune reports that rising rents, which are up 10% from this time last year, as well as properties that are totally unsuitable for young families fleeing domestic violence, is impacting greatly on Donegal Domestic Violence Service (DDVS) ability to help rehouse their clients and free up their own emergency accommodation for others in urgent need of it.Manager of DDVS, Dr Marie Hainsworth, says that both issues are impacting on their ability to help those who need it most. Her primary concern is the rising cost of rents which are well in excess of the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Scheme many of the service clients are in receipt of.She says that these people are being “pushed into poverty” as the money they have for food and heating is often being used to top up their rental payments.The Donegal Domestic Violence Service works to empower and support women to regain, reclaim and retain control of their lives and to live free from the fear of violence and of abuse.Dr Hainsworth stated: “Those HAP payments were set two or three years ago I’d imagine, if not further back, and when you’re looking at 10% increase in rent in a quarter, or even if that was in a year, in two to three years you are quickly way behind. The reality is that the increases are a lot more than that.” Dr Hainsworth said some families are now staying up to nine months in the service’s emergency accommodation, where the intended length of stay is two-three months.As the demand for accommodation remains high, she said there are no incentives for rents to come down.She said the standard of some of the rental properties available is very poor, yet landlords are seeking upwards of €650/month for some properties that are dirty, damp, with flaking paint and safety concerns over gas or electric fittings.She added that in an ideal scenario the Donegal Domestic Violence Service would always have one property available for a family that requires it urgently as new cases come into them.If you are affected by domestic violence can phone the 24 hour helpline 1800 262677 and talk with a trained worker who understands that you need to make choices at your own pace, and who will support and encourage you to do this. No one will force you to do anything, if you wish, you can remain anonymous.

Spotted First Look at NCLs LeonardoClass Ships

first_imgMiami-based Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) showed first images of its new Leonardo-Class ships at Seatrade Cruise Global in Miami on March 15. In February this year, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings signed a deal with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for the construction of four new cruise ships, with an option for two additional vessels, for its NCL brand.The company’s four next generation ships are scheduled for delivery in 2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025.The two optional cruise ships would be handed over to their owner in 2026 and 2027.Each of the four 140,000 gross ton ships will be able to accommodate approximately 3,300 guests.The new class of ships will build upon the cruise line’s most recent Breakaway-Plus Class ships. A priority of the prototype design is energy efficiency, with the aim of optimizing fuel consumption and reducing the impact on the environment, according to NCL.last_img read more

Temple Of The Dog Tour Tickets Benefit Charity

first_imgTemple of the Dog — the Seattle supergroup featuring Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Mike McCready, and drummer Matt Cameron (who plays drums with both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam) — has reunited and will tour for the first time ever since forming in 1990.The band will play five cities, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, in November.A special ticket pre-sale for fans signed up to the Ten Club, Soundgarden, and Chris Cornell email lists begins immediately and runs through July 27th. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 29th, at 12:00 PM local time. $1.50 from each ticket sold will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation and an additional $1.50 will benefit Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation.The tour marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Temple of the Dog’s first and only album, a self-titled set that was released by A&M Records on April 16th, 1991. “We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do … play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago,” Cornell says of the 2016 tour.On September 30th UMe will release a special Temple of the Dog 25th anniversary reissue collection of their landmark album, newly mixed by Brendan O’Brien. The collection will be available in four configurations, including a four disc Super Deluxe, a double LP, a two CD Deluxe, and a single CD. Physical pre-orders are available today along with a detailed list of the contents of each configuration HERE.Temple of the Dog came together from the ashes of Mother Love Bone following the death from a drug overdose of its frontman Andrew Wood, Cornell’s close friend and roommate. Cornell wrote future TOTD songs “Say Hello 2 Heaven” and “Reach Down” to help process his grief, “but the songs didn’t have any destination,” he says. “I was compelled to write them and there they were – written in a vacuum as a tribute to Andy. My thought was that maybe I could record these songs with the remaining members of Mother Love Bone and that maybe we could release them as a tribute.”Mother Love Bone’s Gossard and Ament began playing with McCready, and they brought in Soundgarden’s Cameron to drum on demos. Because this was a collaboration, and a tribute, there was no commercial expectation for the Temple of the Dog album. It would be, Gossard would later observe, “the easiest and most beautiful record that we’ve ever been involved with.” Adds Cornell: “Temple was about making an album simply for the joy of doing it. We weren’t concerned what anyone outside of our group of friends would think of it. It was the first and maybe only stress-free album that we all made.”Gossard, Ament, and McCready were also simultaneously forming a new band, which more than six months later would be known as Pearl Jam. A singer from San Diego named Eddie Vedder, who was vying to lead the project, came into the studio to sing background vocals on three of the Temple songs. When Cornell thought another song, “Hunger Strike,” needed a duet, Vedder was enlisted. “Hunger Strike” became a hit single, peaking at No. 4 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.Temple of the Dog performed live only a handful of times, most notably in Seattle, in November and December of 1990. Those shows have become some of the most legendary Seattle concerts of all-time. Their 2016 shows mark the first time the band has ever toured. (Cornell joined Pearl Jam in 2014 at the Bridge School show and for two nights at PJ20 in Alpine Valley, WI, and the Temple line-up played “Reach Down” and “Call Me a Dog” at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall in January 2015.)“This is something no one has ever seen,” Cornell says of the official reunion. “We wanted to stop and recognize that we did this and pay homage.”Temple of the Dog’s upcoming tour dates are as follows:11/04 Philadelphia, PA Tower Theater
11/07 New York, NY Madison Square Garden
11/11 San Francisco, CA Bill Graham Civic Center
11/14 Los Angeles, CA The Forum 
11/20 Seattle, WA Paramount Theaterlast_img read more

Inside the NBA Shaqtin A Fool Vol 3 Episode

Shaquille O’Neal and “Inside the NBA” are back with a new season of “Shaqtin’ A Fool.” Take a look at this week’s nominees in the first episode of the what has to be the funniest NBA show on TV.In its debut episode, “Shaqtin’ A Fool” regulars Kendrick Perkins and JaVale Magee make an early appearance. Perkins does what he does best, and on a fast break attempts to lob an alley-oop pass to a teammate, but throws the ball out of bounds.  Magee, who some believe is trying to get on  “Shaqtin’ A Fool,”  somehow ends up on a player’s back during a fastbreak.Two rookies made their “Shaqtin’ A Fool” debut, who probably won’t be segment regulars like Magee and Perkins.Later, a cameraman made it on the list because he tries to play it cool after his leg falls asleep resulting in a funky two set dance.Watch the video above and vote for your nominee for the Best Foolish Moment here. read more

Elizabeth Alvarez was live at the Jackie Robinson YMCA to check it out.“RBI brings kids together in a non-competitive environment to teach them the fundamentals of the game, and as they get better, they progressed to whatever level they want” said Michael Brunker, Executive Director of Jackie Robinson Family YMCA.These kids are learning “How to catch a ball, how to bat” says Caesar, who’s going into 5th grade.It’s a free program sponsored by Major League Baseball. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 are also learning much more then just the fundamentals.“I’m learning teamwork and learning how to speak up,” said Nuri Gargonnu who enrolls in the program every summer.On top of that, the program brings families together.“My husband and I both have businesses. He works full-time. You’re tired and everything, but the beauty of being here for your kids is seeing the fruits of your labor, just being right there for them,” said Makena Gargonnu who’s the mother of Nuri and another boy enrolled.“We encourage the families of…children in our program to become a member and with that membership you can use that entire facility,” said Brunker.The executive director added that, right now, the RBI program is only in the summer. But stay tuned! The YMCA wants to try and continue this free baseball program into the fall. August 13, 2018 Posted: August 13, 2018last_img read more
