London, Lancashire schemes to create £10bn pooled investment fund

first_imgThe Lancashire Country Pension Fund and the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) have announced a partnership to create a £10bn (€13bn) pooled investment fund as both schemes look for cost savings and improved governance.It comes as the UK government looks to legislate changes to Local Government Pension Schemes (LGPS), aiming to create two collective investment vehicles for listed and alternative investments.Both pension schemes currently employ in-house investment teams and have stated they wish to increase internal investment expertise.The so-called asset and liability partnership will see the funds merge investment expertise and liability management and will eventually cover all areas, including administration. Investments will be run by an external fund authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and owned jointly by the two funds.The £4.9bn LPFA, created by the merger of several legacy pension arrangements stemming from the abolition of the Greater London Authority, now administers around 20,000 members.The £5.3bn Lancashire Pension Fund provides pensions to 150,000 public sector workers in the North-West English county.Susan Martin, chief executive at the LPFA, told IPE that, aside from pooling assets, the new fund would allow the growth of viable asset classes.The partnership will also improve the funds’ governance and administration, she said.“Liability management starts with having accurate data and ends with finding assets that match liabilities,” she said.Martin added that the structure of the partnership and how it would work in practice were still being discussed with Lancashire, with no firm decisions on which personnel from which scheme would lead the investment fund or where it would be situated.She also said both pension funds had to focus on setting up the partnership in the best interest of members and would not seek any additional pension fund contributors until fully operational.The LPFA shaved nearly £400m from its deficit over the year to April on the back of investment returns and the revamping its fund structure.Martin said this was evidence that the two pension funds could scale up and achieve better investment returns and internal cost savings by working together.Councillor Jennifer Mein, leader of the Lancashire County Council, said the partnership would allow the fund to build on its “proactive approach” to asset and liability management.“The government should be using the good practice of funds to drive up the performance of the Local Government Pension Scheme, rather than dumbing down to the average,” she said.The government is expected to announce its decision on the future of the LGPS in early 2015.Both pension funds responded to government consultation suggesting that mandating switches to passive investment was not the answer to reducing deficits in the LGPS, with more collaboration on governance and liability management mooted as a more appropriate solution.Lancashire previously indicated that it would overhaul its asset allocation, earlier this year tendering for transition managers that could handle mandates worth as much as £5bn ahead of “significant” allocation changes.Other London pension funds have also increased collaboration in recent months, announcing the launch of a collective investment vehicle, looking to reduce the cost of external asset management and allow greater exposure to illiquid assets.last_img read more

Ronald Koeman admits Southampton are striker light

first_img But Koeman is weighing up his attacking options with the January transfer window due to open on Saturday. When asked whether he was about to dip into the transfer market, Koeman said at his pre-match press conference: “At the moment, no. “Like I mentioned before, if we need to sign a player, it needs to be a striker. “But that also depends on the situation of Jay and what will happen with Graziano. It’s too early to make conclusions about that. “We still have to wait to see how they recover and how long it takes, and then we’ll make a decision about what we have to do.” Shane Long is set to lead the line again for Saints at Carrow Road. Koeman is currently without Graziano Pelle and Jay Rodriguez through injury, although both are expected to be back in action in the near future. Pelle has been missing since Christmas with a knee injury and will also sit out this weekend’s trip to Norwich, while Rodriguez is due back in late January after foot surgery. Southampton boss Ronald Koeman admits he may have to dip into the transfer market for a striker if his current frontmen remain unfit.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Taurean Thompson can put up points for the Orange — if he can stay on the floor

first_imgATLANTA – Even guarded by Ben Lammers, Georgia Tech’s best player and one of the best interior defenders in the country, Taurean Thompson had his way.Whether a turnaround hook, pump fake and drive or mid-range jumper, Thompson proved why he’s still undoubtedly Syracuse’s best interior scorer. The freshman poured in 14 first-half points, the most of anyone on the floor, while hitting 50 percent from the field.Thompson was one rare bright spot in a stagnant offense for Syracuse (16-12, 8-7 Atlantic Coast) in its 71-65 loss to Georgia Tech (16-11, 7-7) at McCamish Pavilion on Sunday night. While the offense as a whole struggled, especially for the first chunk of the second half, Thompson finished with a team-high 18 points and 12 boards. He also logged his first career double-double while avoiding late foul trouble to give Syracuse’s offense a glimmer of hope before its bout with No. 10 Duke (22-5, 10-4) on Wednesday.“I felt like they didn’t wanna pressure me a lot,” Thompson said. “It felt like the focal point wasn’t me, so it opened me up for a lot of opportunities.”This season, Thompson has scored in spurts. He’s done so often at the beginning of second halves, but against the Yellow Jackets the SU freshman operated at will right after the ball tipped.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter blocking a pair of shots to in the first 4:22, Thompson hit a pair of foul shots after grabbing two offensive rebounds and drawing a foul. Then he cut baseline to flush home a John Gillon feed. Then a catch at the foul line followed by a turn, drive and left-handed finish with contact.“I think he was aggressive and confident. He carried us in the first half,” fifth-year senior Andrew White said. “It’s just good for him to be out there to kind of give us a spark just because they had a problem defending the interior players, so he did a good job, had a lot of different moves in this game.”Lammers came into the game ranked second nationally in blocks per game (3.3) and more than lived up to that billing, swatting a game-high seven shots. Thompson was on the wrong end of some, but got his fare share of payback on both ends. After hitting a long 2-pointer in front of the Yellow Jackets’ bench, Thompson held up three fingers before realizing his foot was on the line, instead putting one finger down and grinning on his way back down the court with Syracuse up seven late in the first half.Thompson only scored four points on nine shots in the second half, partly because he temporarily exited with 13:13 remaining after picking up his fourth foul. It’s about the only thing that weighed down the freshman — a consistent problem this season.Thompson faces that challenge again when the powerhouse Blue Devils arrive in central New York on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Mike Krzyzewski’s frontcourt is powered by fifth-year senior Amile Jefferson, and Thompson likely won’t go as unnoticed as he thought he did against Georgia Tech.The Blue Devils are among the favorites in Vegas to win the national title, and it’ll take another herculean effort from Syracuse – including a foul-trouble free night from Thompson – to give the Orange a chance to pull off yet another Top-10 upset.“He’s a 15-point-a-game scorer,” Boeheim said Monday, “if he could stay out of foul trouble.” Comments Published on February 21, 2017 at 10:32 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Beach volleyball fails to find win over crosstown rival

first_imgThe USC women’s beach volleyball team lost 2-3 to their crosstown rivals UCLA Wednesday night. The Women of Troy were coming off a tough loss against Pepperdine.Sophomore Joy Dennis serves the ball in the Trojans’ home match against UCLA. Sunny Dong | Daily TrojanThe matches opened up on the 5th court, where the USC senior duo Jenna Belton and Jo Kremer took on UCLA junior Izzy Carey and freshman Megan Muret. Early on, the veteran duo Belton and Kremer showed why they were labeled by the USC’s coaches as “the group you can leave alone,” by going up 17-13 early on in the first set.However, the lead would be short-lived as Muret and Carey would use an 8-3 run to steal the first set from USC. UCLA would carry on the momentum from the first set, going up 11-6 early on in the second set, and dominantly finished the game 21-10 to earn UCLA its first point of the match.On court four, junior Katrina Kernochan and graduate student Alexandra Poletto took on UCLA freshman Mac May, a former Gatorade player of the year, and senior Elisa Zappia. After falling behind early in the first set 4-8, the Kernochan and Poletto duo fought back to bring it to 11-11. Kernochan and Poletto used their size as an advantage — using high shots to keep the defense off balance. Despite taking a timeout with the score at 17-18, May and Zappia would use a 3-1 run to close out the first set. In a highly competitive second set, UCLA continued to attack the 5-foot-9 Kernochan, stuffing her at the net multiple times. Despite that, USC seized a 17-14 lead behind Poletto’s proficiency near the net. Though UCLA had a 4-0 run to tie the second set at 19 a piece, Kernochan closed it out to win 21-19 and force a third set. In the decisive third set, May and Zappia used powerful shots and a 6-1 run to open up 9-5. With all of the momentum on the Bruins’ side, Kernochan dominated the next few points to tie it at 12-12. Poletto and Kernochan were unable to close the deal and fell 14-16 off of May’s kill.On the second court, senior Terese Cannon and freshman Sammy Slater were also unable to get any momentum going for USC, losing the first set 15-21. They fought back hard in the second set to go up 12-11. Despite their efforts,  sophomore Lily Justine and junior Sarah Sponcil came back to win 21-17, and seal the overall win for UCLA.With USC behind 0-3 and the match decided, the Women of Troy would turn to their No. 1 pair of freshman Tina Graudina and junior Abril Bustamante to win a game as they faced off against UCLA’s twins Nicole and Megan McNamara. The McNamara twins, who were riding a 16-game winning streak, showed their dominance by going up on USC 9-16 early in the first set and closing it out 16-21. The McNamaras were noticeably sloppier in the second set, and USC capitalized winning the second set 21-17. In the competitive third set, Graudina and Bustamante won 16-14 to get USC its first victory. Graudina, has stepped in as an immediate contributor for USC and she has reaped high praise from the coaches. Assistant coach Dain Blanton told the Pac-12 Network that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Graudina was to be selected to represent Latvia in the 2020 Olympic Games.The dual would be finished with sophomore Joy Dennis and freshman Haley Hallgren taking on the reigning Pac-12 pair of the week, Savvy Simo and Zana Muno. They came out strong against the streaking pair, winning 21-19 in the first set. Dennis and Hallgren came out swinging again in the second set jumping on the Bruins 6-1, but Simo and Muno fought back to take the second set 17-21. USC at least took the third set 15-8, but ended the match with a loss.With Wednesday’s 3-2 victory, UCLA has now won two out of three duals against USC in 2018. Up next, the Women of Troy will welcome Pepperdine on April 10 at 5 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.last_img read more
