Scottish & Newcastle pension fund shifts £2.4bn of longevity risk

first_imgThe Scottish & Newcastle Pension Plan has agreed a £2.4bn (€3.3bn) longevity swap with UK insurer Friends Life to shift risk of pensioners exceeding longevity expectations.The scheme, now part of Heineken after its takeover of Scottish & Newcastle in 2009, has insured longevity risk for approximately 19,000 pensioners – almost half its membership.Heineken dealt with Friend Life, part of the Aviva Group, in an uncommon arrangement, with the primary insurer retaining some risk.Previously, pension schemes would arrange longevity swap transactions with reinsurers via primary insurers or banks, or directly transact using an insurance company cell. The scheme said it found previously unused capacity in the primary insurance market for longevity swaps and thus arranged a deal with Aviva.Aviva said it partnered with Swiss Re for it to take on some risk but retain some exposure.The scheme, which closed to future accrual in 2011, said the deal should help bring peace of mind to members.Ian Aley, head of pension transactions at Towers Watson, who advised the parties involved, said the move to transact directly with Aviva was another example of innovation in the longevity risk market.“Heineken has broken new ground with this transaction, identifying a new longevity counterparty in Aviva, which provided additional market capacity on this occasion,” he said.Aley added that it was unusual to see a primary insurer take on the risk directly.He said the trustees of the scheme realised a longevity swap would require a long-term relationship and, after approaching several insurance and reinsurance firms, felt comfortable using the newer deal structure with the UK-regulated firm.The £2.4bn deal comes as the UK longevity swap market takes off in 2015, after seeing record deals last year.The BT Pension Scheme created its own insurance company to transact directly with the reinsurance market in a £16bn arrangement.This was part of a wave of longevity swaps between UK pension schemes and global reinsurers, started by Aviva’s reinsuring its own pension scheme in a £5bn deal with three reinsurers.Four of the five longevity swaps in the £25.4bn market directly transacted with reinsurers.US reinsurer, Prudential Financial, said it expected the longevity risk market to grow significantly as appetite spread across Europe, and also that unmediated deals would become the new norm.last_img read more

Thank you for your input. +12 Vote up Vote down David Edge · 224 weeks ago I feel bad for the Football team. The Wellington Head Football Coaching position has become a sort of revolving door. I hope whoever replaces this coach has some stick-ability to him/her. I do understand that people have to do what is best for their family. I wish Coach Ryan and his family all the best. These kids and the kids coming up from grade school deserve a Coach that is going to stick with them through their High School career and someone they can always depend on even after they’ve gone on to become adults. Report Reply 0 replies · active 224 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Wellington Fan · 224 weeks ago Alright, I want to be fair, coach Ryan seemed like a really nice guy and from what I heard a great teacher and will be missed, along with his wife. However when it comes to football coaching not so much. As a lifelong crusader fan who now has grandchildren approaching playing age, I was very happy to hear of this resignation. His offensive and defensive schemes were terrible. He was also not tough enough on these athletes. Now to those in charge of the replacement hiring. Lets move up some of those young coaches on the staff who played for Wellington and have made this their home, so that when they are successful we don’t lose them to another school. Obviously hiring from outside has been a horrible idea, just look at the last few years teams. Poor efforts, poor records, no pride, low turn out of young men for the team. Lets get the crusader pride and want to win back to where it once was. And crusader graduate coaches would do this!

Yeah his record may have been sub-par here but what was the point of posting his record from Trinity? Why not throw the records from Holton and East where he won state titles?

I think Mr. Ryan mentioned the stress on his health.

He put together a great coaching staff. I bleed Crusader Red and have been embarrassed by the last couple of Coaching hires. You damn straight his record counts should have fired him. Wellington Football went to crap when they implemented the zero tolerance as many athletes can not afford to test positive on a drug test as it would kill their chance of going to college or being hired. Lots of schools tried to follow suit with Wellington but removed their zero policy as it had an immediate effect on their records. And they realized them athlete’s were not going out. Once they dropped it the athletes came back out.

We have had to constantly beg kids that are supposed to be parts of the puzzle of success to just come to practice. When we were winning when I was a kid those guys were all about football and would’ve died on the field if that’s what was needed. THAT IS the problem, not him. It’s my classmates and many others like them that aren’t taught enough about accountability. It also never helps to have parents at home that only think it’s the coach not pushing hard enough when their son isn’t at practice day-in-day-out. Next time you wonder why we aren’t winning think about that.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Tyler Ryan has resigned as head coach of the Wellington football Crusaders. He tendered his resignation this morning at USD 353 school.Ryan and his wife Stephanie have accepted teaching jobs at Holton High School next fall. Ryan said he will not be coaching, but will be teaching at the high school in business education. Stephanie, who teaches at Lincoln Elementary, will teach at a similar elementary school in Holton.Tyler Ryan“I needed to set back and catch my breath,” Ryan said. “Football is a year-round process. I was stressing and it wasn’t good for my health.”“This was not about anything Wellington did or did not do. This was a personal thing. I had been on the fence about this decision for some time.”Ryan will finish out the year as the WHS track coach. He said he might pursue a track position at Holton, but currently has no plans to coach football.Ryan took over at Wellington High School four years ago, replacing Dylan Schmidt, who was there for one year after replacing Linn Hibbs.Hibbs just recently took the head coaching job at Winfield High School. T.D. Buck recently resigned as the defensive coordinator – a position he has held for more than a decade. He will be rejoining Hibbs as an offensive line coach.Ryan denied that Buck transferring to Winfield played a role in his decision.Both resignations will be approved at the next meeting. Buck will remain a teacher at USD 353 and is currently the WHS girls softball coach.The Crusaders were 16-20 in Ryan’s four seasons here, and failed to make the playoffs in any of those seasons.“I really appreciate the community, for all they have done for me and my family,” Ryan said. “I especially want to thank Brian (Buchanan) and Adam (Hatfield), who have been great to work with.”Ryan said he knows it is late in the process for hiring new coaches, but there are a lot of good ones out there.“I really hope Wellington can hire a football coach, who can get them over the hump,” Ryan said.Ryan came to Wellington at 28 years of age having coached at Wichita Trinity for two seasons where he was 9-9 during his tenure there. Wellington had gone 2-8 and 3-6 in the two previous years, before Ryan took the position.Ryan had two winning seasons. He was 5-4 in 2013 and 5-4 in 2014, before going 4-5 in 2015.This will mark the third head football coaching search this decade.

Half-time: QPR 0 Leeds United 0

first_imgChris Wood had the best chance of the first half at Loftus Road, where Grant Hall went closest for QPR. Liam Cooper lifted the ball forward and after Rob Green hesitated, Wood rounded him but was left at an acute angle and keeper Green had time to get back into position before the Leeds striker sliced a shot high and wide of the target.Rangers, without a goal in their last four matches, felt they might have had a penalty for a push by Giuseppe Bellusci on Junior Hoilett.Seconds later, Hall headed over from Alejandro Faurlin’s right-wing corner.And a couple of minutes before the interval, R’s captain Nedum Onuoha fired narrowly over with a firmly-struck 30-yarder.Hoilett was restored to the starting line-up by interim boss Neil Warnock, who gave winger Michael Petrasso, 20, his full QPR debut.Charlie Austin, who has been nursing a calf problem, is among the Rangers substitutes.QPR: Green, Perch, Onuoha.

Mandela Day: libraries in containers

first_img10 July 2013 The Mandela Day container library project, an innovative response to the shortage of libaries at South African schools, will celebrate Nelson Mandela month with the handover of its 28th library – a custom-adapted 12-metre shipping container – to Alpine Primary School in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town. The 28th Mandela Day container library went on public display at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront at an event marking the launch of Mandela month on 1 July, and will remain on display through 18 July, Mandela’s 95th birthday as well as Nelson Mandela International Day. Marked across the world on 18 July each year, Mandela Day aims to inspire people to take action to change the world for the better and, in doing so, to build a global movement for good. “The public is invited to view the library, get involved in activities within and around the library, such as writing their messages of hope on the 67 minutes wall of hope, painting the external wall of the container, reading to school learners and donating books,” Puleng Phooko, programmes manager for Breadline Africa, said at launch event at the V&A Waterfront’s Clock Tower square. Breadline Africa is one of a number of NGOs and corporates that have partnered with the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory to drive the container library project, with corporates providing financial support, sponsorship of books and employee volunteers, and literacy organisations, book donation agencies and publishers providing books, educational equipment and materials. “The installation of Mandela Day libraries continues to spread the Mandela Day message about people’s capacity, when working together, to bring about positive change,” the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory says on its website. “The libraries promote a reading culture and address the call for equal access to resources for education.” According to Phooko, the project, inspired by Mandela’s own love of reading and belief in the transformative power of education, can only be successful through the joint efforts of partners willing to make positive changes in children’s lives. The first Mandela Day container library was opened on 18 July 2011 at Tsakane Primary School on the East Rand in Gauteng province, and since then a further 26 have opened, covering deserving underprivileged schools in urban and rural areas countrywide and collectively touching the lives of over 20 000 pupils. Alpine Primary School in Mitchells Plain, which will receive the 28th library later this month, currently has no library for its 1 370 pupils. To ensure the sustainability of the project, the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, with support from LegalWise, Macmillan South Africa and other partners, hosted librarian training sessions in Johannesburg and Cape Town in October for teachers who run the libraries in recipient schools. Last month, the centre hosted a networking event bringing together “the companies that sponsor libraries, publishers and booksellers, architects and engineers who help design the libraries, and non-profit organisations that make the libraries a functional reality for learners and educators”. Tim Smith, director of Breadline Africa, appealed to corporates in South Africa and abroad to get involved in taking the project forward. Also speaking at the event, Kimberly van Dyk, CSI manager at JPMorgan Chase Bank, spoke of the bank’s sponsorship of a library, saying it was well received by people working at the bank, especially at its New York headquarters. Florina Tshikane, principal of Meadowlands Primary School in Soweto, spoke of the her pupils’ excitement about their container library, which opened in August. “They are so enthusiastic about the library,” she said. “They rush to library during break time.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Mike Gundy Thrives In Close Games, Has One Loss In Last Three Years

first_imgIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! As the clock unwound in Manhattan and the reality that Oklahoma State’s Big 12 title dreams were in fact still alive, a pleased Mike Gundy spoke to reporters.“These games are nerve-wracking for all of us,” Gundy told Go Pokes. “Really for me, I enjoy watching it and seeing them rally. When we talk about no fear, no fatigue, no frustration in our program, they never showed any frustration, they just kept playing.“Obviously, fatigue wasn’t an issue because they played better in the fourth quarter then they did in the third. So, their attitude, their body language, the character of who they are, the substance of this team, I can’t say anything but A-plus.”I love that. OSU really does have a knack for winning tight games in the Gundy era. A stunning Mike Gundy stat emerged in the Manhattan aftermath. In his last 11 games decided by fewer than 10 points, Gundy and Co. are 10-1. The only loss? CMU************************Let’s take a look at all 11 games.at Kansas (2014) — 27-20And we’re off to a roaring start.at OU (2014) — 38-35This is the crown jewel of this list.Washington (2015) — 30-22Another gem that looks better with age especially with the way UDub is playing this season.at Texas (2015) — 30-27This was one of the more hideous good wins of the Gundy era.Kansas State (2015) — 36-34I would imagine KSU is on this list for a lot of teams.at West Virginia (2015) 33-26One of the sneaky great wins of the Gundy era.at Iowa State (2015) — 35-31This, too, probably should have been a loss. It is probably not good that you have two Iowa State games on here in which OSU failed to cover the spread.Central Micigan (2016) — 30-27The only loss!Pittsburgh (2016) — 45-38OSU was a narrow favorite here and with the way Penn State (which Pitt beat) is playing the second half of the year, this win keeps getting more impressive.Iowa State (2016) — 38-31It’s sort of embarrassing that this game is on the list, but then again Iowa State might be the best 1-8 team of all time.at Kansas State (2016) — 43-37Saturday’s game. OSU could have (and probably should have) lost. But it didn’t, and the dream of a Big 12 crown was prolonged a week deeper into November.There are a couple of ways to look at this list. The first is that OSU “just wins, baby.” The other is “why are you having super close games against Kansas and Iowa State?” Gundy insists there is parity in the Big 12 which I can get on board with, but nobody thinks Kansas and ISU are good enough to hang with these OSU teams.The flip side of that is that when OSU loses, it gets houuuuuused. Look at the end of last year. Ten straight wins before getting beat by a combined 73 points by Baylor, OU and Ole Miss. It’s different if you’re winning all your games (including the sub-10-point ones).But OSU has also won a ton of games under Gundy — even those we don’t think should be as close as they have been. In the last three years it is 18-1 as the favored team in Vegas. Eighteen and one! Only Clemson has a better record (min. 10 games).screen-shot-2016-11-06-at-1-17-04-pmSo yes it has a penchant for winning tight games, but it takes care of business as the favorite. Even if it’s not in the manner in which we would prefer.“No one starts yelling, no one loses composure,” James Washington told the Tulsa World. “I feel like I actually calm down when things like that happen.”I’m glad somebody is.last_img read more
