Clients add £6.1bn to F&C funds

first_img Share Wednesday 9 March 2011 8:17 pm Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL F&C ASSET Management reported its first net fund inflow in five years yesterday but provided little new detail on its future under new chairman Edward Bramson.Investors lodged £6.1bn with F&C in 2010, creating a net £272m inflow and taking funds under management eight per cent higher to £105.8bn, from £97.8bn in 2009. Chief executive Alain Grisay said the 76 per cent rise in gross inflows from 2009’s level showed “growing momentum building up.”“It does please us but it is not a surprise to us as it is an improving trend,” he said. But he said a review of F&C’s strategy launched last month after a boardroom coup that saw chairman Nick Macandrew ousted and Bramson voted in, would only be published in several months. “It is not done in a rush as there is no need to come to the rescue of the business,” he said.Earnings per share rose slightly to 5.9p, from 5.8p in 2009 and above forecasts for 5.7p. Pre-tax profit of £46.7m also narrowly exceeded forecasts of £46.5m. Operating loss was £3.1m, down from £5.9bn in 2009. Analysts said F&C’s stock remained risky as uncertainty over its future could put off customers. F&C’s shares closed down 3.27 per cent at 82.7p. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Ireland to fight tax harmony by the back door

first_img whatsapp IRELAND is to fiercely oppose what its Prime Minister Enda Kenny has called an EU attempt at “harmonisation of taxes by the back door”.Proposals published by the European Commission (EC) yesterday aim to offer companies a single set of rules for calculating their corporate tax across the whole EU.But the proposals have been launched during a row about Ireland’s 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate, which France has said Dublin must raise in return for a lower interest rate on its €85bn (£74bn) bailout. The rules would not mandate a uniform EU corporate tax rate, but would offer businesses the option of filing a single tax return with their main national regulator on all their European profits.The commission said it would save businesses €700m in compliance costs and €1.3bn from being able to offset losses across borders. But tax lawyers called the proposals “simplistic”. “They’ll have to be a raft of guidance in practice,” said Eloise Walker, a partner at Pinsent Masons, adding they would impose an administrative burden on HMRC. And once introduced, they could also make it easier to harmonise tax rates. “What the EU wants ultimately is a common corporate tax rate,” said Walker.

RW’s England squad for the First Test in Brisbane

first_imgWith the countdown to the first Test well and truly on, will Eddie Jones tweak a winning squad for the hard tracks of Australia? RW picks the side to start in Brisbane… Coaching is 90 per cent selection and Eddie Jones has proved a decent selector so far in his time in England. His team face Australia in Brisbane on 11 June and Jones has much to ponder. Don’t expect him to pull too many rabbits out of the hat but here is what he should do as England bid to win a first away series against the Wallabies,Full-back: Alex GoodeHard to leave Mike Brown out but what’s it all about if the Premiership Player of the Year is English and can’t get in the England team? Jones may well give both Goode and Brown a start in the series but Goode should have first dibs after playing second fiddle for the last three years.Man in form: Alex Goode’s stellar form for Saracens merits the 15 shirtLeft wing: Anthony WatsonWatson wears 14 despite playing on the left wing – after an agreement with Jack Nowell – and has 12 tries in his last 17 Tests and four in his last four. The one against Wales at Twickenham might just have been the best of the lot and, injury permitting, the Bath man is nailed on for the foreseeable future and is still only 22 years old.Outside centre: Jonathan JosephA tight call this one with Elliot Daly banging on the door with his pace, handling and cannon-like boot but Joseph has some ‘credit in the bank’ to use one of Eddie Jones’ predecessor’s favourite sayings. Joseph has got to produce some of his dazzling footwork though because Daly is catching up with him fast.Inside centre: Henry SladeA tough one this. I can still see Jones going for Owen Farrell here and George Ford at No.10, or even playing Ben Te’o at 12, but  I would like to see Slade given a run despite a couple of blunders in the Premiership final. He has vision and can pass, his kicking is good but Jones has said he would like to see him run with the ball more.Playmaker: Henry Slade is a fine distributor and has a sharp rugby brainRight wing: Jack NowellPossibly the form wing in Europe, since the World Cup, and a major player in Exeter’s march to the Premiership final. Comes off his wing well looking for work, can mix it with the forwards at the breakdown where he won more turnovers than anyone during the Six Nations. Nowell has eight tries in 15 Tests at 23 and more to come.Fly-half: Owen FarrellFarrell has steered Saracens to European and Premiership titles from number 10 so he should be playing fly-half for England. His attacking game has come on a ton since Jones arrived in England and his place-kicking is up there in the Jonny Wilkinson bracket. Farrell brings a bit of dog to the back line as long as he keeps a lid on things.Scrum-half: Danny CareIn six internationals under Jones, Care has started twice (against Scotland and France) and Ben Youngs four times and it is a toss-of-a-coin job, although Richard Wigglesworth is unlucky not to be involved. Youngs made a couple of fumbles early on against Wales and Care should get first crack down under.In control: Danny Care’s sharpness around the fringes could be pivotalLoose-head prop: Mako VunipolaWith Joe Marler off the scene Vunipola has a chance to nail down the No.1 jersey. In the Six Nations he started twice, against Italy and France, but should be starting all three Tests in Australia. Vunipola has the hands of a centre, but that is a bonus for a prop, and has to show up at scrum-time and round the park like he has been for Saracens.Hooker: Dylan Hartley (c)Hartley had just 17 minutes of rugby between the Grand Slam match against France and the Wales game in May but still hit all of his line-outs and showed how crucial he is to England. He once told us that his job was to scrum well and throw in well, everything else is a bonus and he is the heart of this England team now. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Last time out: England have wrongs to right against Australia TAGS: Highlight Tight-head prop: Dan ColeCole looked like he was on the way down during the World Cup but rallied with England recently and three weeks with Neal Hatley, the new forwards coach, won’t do him any harm. Has 65 international caps in the locker and should not be giving away so many penalties as he does at the moment but is still the best bet.Pick-pocket: Maro Itoje’s steals at the lineout could turn the first TestLock: Maro ItojeI thought about shifting him to No.6 to get Joe Launchbury in the starting line-up but the European Player of the Year can stay where he is after 12 months in which he has not put a foot wrong. Just about the prototype of the perfect modern lock – who would have thought 12 months ago that Launchbury and Courtney Lawes would be the second-string?Lock: George KruisKruis was rated no-better than a club player when he pitched up at Saracens but now he is established in world rugby. Got 45 minutes off the bench in the World Cup but is now one of the first names on the team sheet for the way he runs the line out and has started every game he was available for under Jones. Challenging the best in the game.Blindside flanker: Chris RobshawTeimana Harrison was a tempting option here but Robshaw gets the nod, just. The former captain was hailed as one of England’s most improved players by Jones after the Six Nations so it would be harsh for the Australian to bin him now. Robshaw will know the pressure is on and will do well to keep his place for all three Tests.Workhorse: Chris Robshaw’s industry and experience gives him the nod over Teimana HarrisonOpenside flanker: James HaskellHaskell is probably the player who has surprised Jones since he came in. His public image probably didn’t help but Jones has worked with him and rates him highly. Haskell will be up against it on the faster tracks of Australia but has passed all his exams this season when most expected him to fade away.No.8: Billy VunipolaAnother complete no-brainer as Vunipola has made this slot his own and been one of the outstanding players in Europe. Has sorted out his fitness issues and is one of the most dominant ball-carriers around. Jones’ decision to make him a vice-captain has paid off and he has continued, with Saracens, where he left off in the Six Nations.Athlete: Jack Clifford’s pace for his size has surprised manyBenchJamie George, Matt Mullan, Paul Hill, Joe Launchbury, Jack Clifford, Ben Youngs, George Ford, Elliot Daly No shocks here although Harrison might be vying for a bench spot with Clifford and Jones will have to make a call on Ford’s confidence after his barracking at Twickenham. Clifford, Daly and Youngs will add gas in the last quarter but George won’t be expecting much game with skipper Hartley on the field. In three Six Nations games, before injury, he played a total of 24 minutes.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click herelast_img read more

Bryan Habana explains why these are the 3 best players he’s ever played with

first_imgFriday Aug 10, 2018 Bryan Habana explains why these are the 3 best players he’s ever played with Springbok legend Bryan Habana spoke to The Late Tackle show earlier this year and was put on the spot to come up with the best three rugby players he’s ever played with. Two of them you might have guessed, but the other, possibly not.Habana, a World Cup winner and the second most capped Springbok of all time with 124 Tests, finished his career at Toulon when injury proved too much of a struggle.Today, another legend has confirmed that he will be hanging up his boots, after his second go at it.Now 35-years-old, Jaque Fourie has been working with the Force in Western Australia, hoping to combine coaching with a playing return. However, a series of small injuries changed his mind.“Jaque initially had the intent to play but not long after arriving he had a couple of niggles and just made a decision to call time in his career,” coach Tim Sampson told website rugby.com.au.“It would’ve been great to get some game time out of him but he certainly fills in a lot at training and likes to think he’s still got it but he’s slowly beginning to be shown up by the lads.”Fourie, perhaps underrated on the global stage, was named by Habana as one of the best three players he’s ever played with. His career included time with the Stormers and stints in Japan, with his try-scoring prowess at one stage seeing him hold a record for being the only player to score a try against every Test nation he had played against.His defence was also a key part of his game, often playing the role of the organiser.“He loves it, he’s a guy that gives us a lot of energy and if you look at his playing days he was a key link man for the Springboks in that position as a defence captain in the back line and the guys really respond to Jaque,” Sampson said.“I think it’s been a strength this year, our defence, and hopefully Jaque can continue to put his print on our defensive systems and structures.”Here’s a look at Habana’s best three players he’s played with in his career. He of course played with one for the Springboks, the other at Toulon and the third for the Barbarians back in 2008.credit: rugby365.com/rugby.com.auADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Player Features Related Articles 28 WEEKS AGO New Zealand rugby pod admit Owen Farrell… 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary… 30 WEEKS AGO The highs and lows of Yoann Huget after he… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

“Impunity: War on Somalia’s Journalists” – a NUSOJ report

first_img RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region November 23, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Impunity: War on Somalia’s Journalists” – a NUSOJ report March 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF_en Help by sharing this information Produced with the participation of several NUSOJ partner organizations including Reporters Without Borders and supported by the French embassy in Kenya, the report is being published after the deadliest year ever for journalists in Somalia, with a total of 18 killed since 1 January.Somalia’s journalists are the constant targets of threats and attacks and a total of 44 have been killed during the past six years, the NUSOJ report says, condemning the passivity of the authorities and the failure to investigate the murders.“Hostilities and threats have cultivated an environment of terror and insecurity that has slowed down independent journalism and promoted self-censorship as a form of protection,” NUSOJ says.The report concludes that the impunity enjoyed by those who attack and kill journalists has its direct origin in the corruption and complicity of the Somali police and judicial system.In view of the fact that around 250 journalists have fled Somalia since 2007, it is vital that the government led by the new president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, should guarantee security and justice for media workers. To achieve this, NUSOJ recommends a number of measures including:- the urgent adoption of a media law reform- investigations into each of the 44 murders of media workers during the past six years- criminal prosecutions by impartial and competent authorities against those responsible for crimes of violence against journalists.Reporters Without Borders fully supports these recommendations.Shortly after releasing its report, NUSOJ learned that Ibrahim Mohamed Adan, a reporter for the BBC’s Somali-language service, was arrested in Mogadishu on 21 November on a charge of “false news.” NUSOJ and Reporters Without Borders call for his immediate and unconditional release.

Only those changes that are allowed under the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning (MRTP) Act have been done,” Sood’s advocate had argued in HC.As per the BMC, the Bollywood actor had carried out structural changes in the six-storey residential building ”Shakti Sagar”, and converted it into a hotel without taking requisite permissions.The BMC earlier this month also filed a complaint at the Juhu police station, seeking FIR against Sood for allegedly converting the residential building into a hotel without permission.The complaint letter was sent to the police after the BMC inspected the building and found that Sood had allegedly not complied with the requisitions and was continuing unauthorised construction even after the notice was served to him in October last year.The police is yet to register FIR in the case.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
