The €62m Dutch pension fund for commodities firm Vitol Anker (SPFVA) has liquidated and placed its pension plan with insurer Integrale Luxemburg.It is the first time a Dutch scheme has moved across the border to the Luxembourg-based insurer, and Integrale said there was growing interest in this option.SPFVA said the Dutch regulator, De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), had concluded that the scheme was vulnerable and its board needed to spend a disproportionate amount of time running it. It had a funding level of 94% at the end of 2015, and 550 participants in total.SPFVA indicated that, by involving the insurer as of 1 January this year, it was able to prevent rights cuts. The new pension arrangements run by Integrale are purely defined contribution (DC), whereas the previous plan combined defined benefit and DC. The DB element applied to the first €35,000 of an employee’s salary, and DC applied to any remainder up to the national cap of €100,000.The scheme’s board emphasised that the new plan would produce the same pension result as the old scheme, and added that Vitol Anker would not financially benefit from the changes.On its website, the board said that the Luxembourg arrangements required an employer’s guarantee if agreed returns weren’t achieved. It declined to provide additional details about its choice.The board made clear that it would keep administration and communication in-house, provided by Anchor Insurance Rotterdam, one of the scheme’s affiliated employers.SPFVA implemented the pension plan for fuel trading firm Vitol, oil storage and transport company VTTI, DUPI Insurance Group, and Anchor Insurance.Integrale Luxemburg – a subsidiary of parent company Integrale Belgium – said that Vitol Anker was the first Dutch pension fund that had placed its pensions with the insurer.It cited Dutch pensions advisers indicating more interest for its proposition, but said that it was not in talks with other candidates.Integrale was also reluctant to provide more details of insured arrangements in Luxembourg.“We know how sensitive the issue is in the Netherlands,” a spokesperson said. “But of course we would be happy to point out the benefits to interested parties.”Integrale Luxemburg said it was particularly focused on smaller pension funds with assets of up to €200m. It also offers other services including fiduciary management, reporting, and compliance.French asset manager Amundi has recently set up a Luxembourg-based pan-European pensions vehicle for DC plans, aimed at European schemes of multinationals. Last December, it said it already had a dozen clients.Amundi offers both asset management and administration, and claimed that asset management costs in Luxemburg were 30% lower than elsewhere in Europe.It added that supervision in Luxembourg was no less strict but more flexible than in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement and Columbia Shipmanagement have combined their global buying power to create an independent procurement company.The new unit, GP General Procurement Company Limited (GenPro), will negotiate framework supply agreements with international ship suppliers on behalf of its members’ clients with a view to securing the lowest prices achievable on all consumables.This new agreement allows a pool of 800 vessels managed by BSM and Columbia the access to a wider range of consumables at the best prices available globally, the parties said.It will capitalise on the best practices and strengths of its members by driving efficiencies into the whole procurement process to help reduce clients’ vessel OpEx costs and return real value to the client by way of volume-related discounts in a fully transparent and auditable way, the parties explained.“We believe GenPro will change the way global procurement is delivered to shipowners on an international scale and will in time become a compelling new force in the industry. Both companies are leveraging their industry links and relationships to owners and we believe this is something owners will welcome,” Ian Beveridge, CEO of Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement said.The scope and reach of the procurement effort will not be limited to maritime products and consumables but will include all products and consumables associated with the operation of the maritime business, onshore and offshore.
NewsRegional Security Breach: Mentally ill man causes security stir at airport by: – April 24, 2011 29 Views no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Tweet Share KINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC – Jamaican authorities Saturday confirmed there had been a breach in security at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) but said that there was no danger to passengers or aircraft.NMIA communications manager Mark Williams said that a mentally disturbed man, armed with two stones, had barged into the facility late Thursday.“He had two stones and wanted to gain access to the terminal building. He was apprehended by security taken to the medical post and evaluated and then taken to the police station,” Williams said.He said that while the ticketing hall is now accessible to the general public the un-named man was stopped “at the first security checkpoint where he tried to gain access to the departure lounge.“My information is that he was tracked on all the security cameras. The security measures that we put in place actually worked and proved that they worked this time around,” Williams added.The man has been taken to the Bellevue Hospital – an institution for mentally ill persons.Last November, the security at the airport was breached after a man was found wandering on the tarmac after reportedly hiding in a parked commercial plane for several hours.

Members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) secure the border of Mandaluyong and Manila on March 17, 2020. ABS-CBN News “We cannot be lenient because this will definitely defeat the purpose of the declaration of the Enhanced Community Quarantine which President Duterte approved purposely to contain the COVID-19,” he added. PNP Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar said in a radio interview on Sunday that they cannot be lenient on curfew violators as it will defeat the purpose of the enhanced community quarantine declaration. “Sila po ay dadalhin sa police station for booking. Through the electronic or online inquest proceeding, ire-refer natin ang kasong ‘yan sa skeletal force ng ating Office of the Prosecutor,” Eleazar said. “Dahil na rin po sa request ng ating local government chief executives, hindi po kami magiging lenient dito. Tuloy pa rin po ang pag-aresto,” Eleazar, commander of the Joint Task Force Corona Virus Shield (JTF CV Shield), said in an interview with DZBB. “If the curfew violators will be released over a decision that the regular filing of the case will be done after the ECQ, curfew violators must be held for a maximum of 12 hours while being admonished so as to deter them from repeating the offense,” he added./PN Eleazar, however, changed his tune on Sunday after the Department of Justice activating an online inquest proceeding. MANILA – The Philippine National Police (PNP) warned that curfew violators under the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) will now be arrested as the number of offenders continue to rise. Eleazar said the enforcement will be a little lenient against curfew violators by allowing them to go home after booking them instead of detaining them until they posted bail but it was rebuffed by the Department of Interior and Local Government. The JTF CV Shield, the enforcement arm of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, said a total of 42,826 curfew violators were apprehended in the first 11 days of the declaration in light of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Part 2: When the injury is inside your head, some “don’t get it” – July 26, 2016 EHS names new boys’ soccer coach – July 13, 2016 Bio ELLSWORTH — The April 7 storm that packed winds up to 77 miles per hour might seem like a distant memory to some. Power that was lost by thousands has long been restored, and fallen trees that blocked roadways have been cleared away.But for the Ellsworth high school and middle school outdoor track teams, that storm left a lasting impression when it flipped some 150 feet of aluminum bleachers onto the track they share.Dan Higgins, superintendent of the Ellsworth schools, said he contacted the School Department’s insurer as well as the bleachers’ manufacturer the next day after a custodian discovered the stands lying upside-down on the oval track located on Forrest Avenue.Three weeks after the storm, the site looks just as it did that morning.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“The determination will be whether or not the bleachers need to be replaced or could be repaired,” Higgins said.Higgins said the manufacturer/installer and an engineer are expected to assess the damage sometime this week and decide what will happen next.Higgins said the bleachers, which were purchased from a company headquartered in Connecticut called GT Grandstands, were installed in the fall of 2014 for $94,600.It took about a week and a half to assemble the stands, and Higgins expects it will take “some time” to take them apart if they need to be moved offsite.Higgins said there also appears to be some damage to the track’s polyurethane surface from the force of the impact, making the timeline for when the facility will be entirely usable again even more unpredictable.“We’re hoping to get everything taken care of so we can resume activities as planned,” Higgins said. “But it’s a matter of waiting for the appropriate parties to look at the damage so we can determine the next steps.”Meanwhile, the Ellsworth high school and middle school track teams are figuring out ways to keep their seasons alive.“You just have to roll with the punches,” said Ellsworth High School Athletics Director Josh Frost. “We’re making adjustments. We certainly haven’t cancelled our outdoor track season.”Both the high school and middle school teams were each scheduled to host two meets over the next few months. EHS has already relocated its first home competition that was slated for April 23.EHS was also scheduled to host a meet featuring all the Hancock County schools on May 20.Frost said he is optimistic about hosting that meet, but a back-up plan has already been set. The competition will be held at Mount Desert Island High School if needed.The EHS team has been traveling to MDI once a week to practice on the high school’s track.“You do what you have to do,” said EHS assistant coach Dennis Ishle. “They were nice enough to allow us to come down and practice there.”As for the other four days of the school week, the high school and middle school teams have worked out a system for sharing the half of the track not covered by the bleachers.Frost estimates some 45 athletes comprise the high school team while almost 100 compete for the middle school.“You obviously can’t have 150 kids on the track, using half the track,” Frost said. “So we’ve set up a schedule.”When all else fails, Ishle said the team uses its resources. Distance runners have jogged around town, and throwers have practiced behind the high school.However, the long jump pit is hard to replicate, and Ellsworth’s is currently under the toppled bleachers.Ellsworth’s pole vault pit, which Frost said would cost around $15,000 to replace, is also unavailable for unrelated reasons. Mice and mold inhabited the pad over the winter — a discovery made three days before the storm took out the other half of the track.But student-athletes are not the only ones affected.Higgins said he is also notifying community organizations scheduled to use the facility that their events will depend on the time it takes to restore the track.One of those upcoming events is the Relay for Life on June 3 and 4 — an overnight fundraiser for the American Cancer Society that typically attracts hundreds of participants.“If they don’t have the bleachers off by then, that’s going to be an issue,” Ishle said. “There are a lot of people it’s going to impact.” Part 1: Invisible, incapacitating concussions are sidelining high school athletes – July 19, 2016 Latest Posts Taylor VorthermsSports Editor at The Ellsworth AmericanTaylor Vortherms covers sports in Hancock County.

Centre back Dejan Lovren then extended the lead with a towering header and then Dominic Solanke then added to the tally with his first Liverpool goal, left-back and one of the key players of Liverpool this season Andy Robertson then wrapped up the game with fourth of the night for Liverpool.In the other game, Chelsea succumbed to their 10th Premier League defeat of the season after a brace by Ayoze Perez and a Dwight Gayle strike ended their hopes, putting more pressure on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, just six days before Chelsea’s final game of the season in the FA Cup final against Manchester United.Whereas, Champions Manchester City broke yet another Premier League record by becoming the first side in English top flight history to reach 100 points mark as Gabriel Jesus cleverly chipped in a delicious Kevin De Bruyne’s lob pass on the last kick of the game to defeat Southampton 1-0. The victory also meant that City set a record of Premier League margin of victory of 19 points from second placed Manchester United.
