First, you can adjust the foot cradles and strap length to fit you. Second, you can adjust the difficulty of your workout depending on how you’re feeling that day.

USS: Mark-to-market to blame for pension funds’ failure on infrastructure

first_imgShe highlighted the different method Canadian pension schemes take to mark to market, and the Australian perpetual structures approach, as a reason why they can accommodate allocations above 60%. Graham, who worked at the £40.2bn BT Pension Scheme (BTPS) before joining USS, said: “We cannot take advantage of this. I explained this to the UK government, which could not understand why we weren’t buying more like the Canadian [pension funds]. It is a balancing act, and we’re forced into this position.”USS allocates around 5.1% of its assets to infrastructure, but this is less than half the allocation to private capital markets and lower than its allocation to Japanese equities.The scheme has made several high-profile UK infrastructure purchases, including a stake in the UK’s air traffic control service and an airport in south-west England.It was reportedly in line to purchase the government’s stake in Eurostar, the UK/Continental train operator, before being pipped to the company by Canadian fund Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ).However, Hermes Infrastructure did acquire a 10% stake on behalf of several UK schemes including the BTPS.Defending mark-to-market accounting, Ian McKinlay, investment director for the nearly £15bn (€20.4bn) Aviva Staff Pension Scheme, said closed defined benefit (DB) schemes should adhere to the system to ensure pension payments are met.He did, however, suggest that open schemes, such as USS, should be regulated more as endowments are.“The reality for me, with a closed scheme, is that I have to get the last cash flow, and the clock is ticking,” he said.“In that environment, mark-to-market makes more sense because I have fiduciary obligation to make sure the probability of paying the pensions is as high as possible.”Stefan Dunatov, CIO at Coal Pension Trustees, which manages £20bn in assets for the UK’s formerly nationalised coal industry pension funds, said mark-to-market was forcing pension funds to buy UK Gilts, instead of other assets, unnecessarily.He said the regulatory standards meant schemes always preferred buying Gilts, in order to be hedged.“You get into a situation where everyone might say they are liability-matched, but they’re not because it cannot possibly be,” he said. “We need to rebalance the regulatory culture.” The Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) has cited the requirement to use mark-to-market accounting for scheme assets and liabilities as a major barrier to increasing UK pension funds’ allocation to infrastructure.The £41.6bn (€50.3bn) pension fund for the UK’s higher-education sector invests in infrastructure but said mark-to-market regulations prevented the scheme from investing in more long-term projects.Speaking at the London conference, The Investment Agenda, Kathryn Graham, USS’s head of strategy coordination, said she resented pension schemes being “constantly berated” for not being more long term in light of the circumstances.Graham said she was always surprised at the level of infrastructure in Canadian and Australian pension funds, but that their accounting structures explained why allocations significantly outstripped those of the USS.last_img read more

Jordan, Lewis deliver for Patriots

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts, (CMC) – Debutant fast bowler Akeem Jordan made an instant impact while opener Evin Lewis struck his second half-century as St Kitts and Nevis Patriots recovered from losing two games on the trot to beat St Lucia Zouks by six wickets here Sunday night.In pursuit of a hardly challenging 139 at Warner Park, Patriots swept to only their second in of their Caribbean Premier League campaign with 31 balls remaining in the contest under lights.The left-handed Lewis top-scored with 65 off 30 balls while Mohammed Hafeez chipped in with 26, the pair combining in a 62-run, third wicket stand which put the hosts in sight of victory.Zouks, sent in earlier, produced a lacklustre batting effort to finish on 138 for nine off their 20 overs, with New Zealander Colin de Grandhomme getting 30 and South African Hardus Viljoen scoring 28.The 24-year-old Jordan, in his first-ever T20 of a promising career, took apart the Zouks with four for 33 from his four overs while leg-break bowler Usama Mir (2-13) and medium pacer Rayad Emrit (2-29) provided excellent support.With the victory, St Kitts moved into third place in the six-team standings on four points while Zouks remained fourth on two.Once Jordan removed in-form openers Andre Fletcher (1) and Rahkeem Cornwall (5) with just 14 on the board in the third over, the Zouks innings remained in turmoil throughout.Fletcher slapped the third ball of the evening straight to Fabien Allen at point while Cornwall slashed to Sheldon Cottrell at third man.De Grandhomme, who faced 22 balls and belted four fours and a six, tried to revive the innings in a 26-run, sixth wicket stand with captain Darren Sammy (18) but perished to a catch at deep cover in the 12th over off Mir.On the ropes at 100 for eight, Zouks benefited from the best stand of the innings when Viljoen and Obed McCoy (14 not out) put on 35 for the ninth wicket.Zouks were quickly back in the game when seamer Kesrick Williams had the dangerous Devon Thomas caught at third man for one with the score on 11 in the second over.However, success thereafter was limited, as Lewis put on 45 for the second wicket with Englishman Laurie Evans (19) and another half-century stand with Hafeez, to erase any doubt about the outcome.Lewis was in prime form, counting five fours and half-dozen sixes, as he raced to his 27th T20 fifty off 26 balls.last_img read more
