EIOPA’s Bernardino calls for ‘smarter’, forward-looking regulation

first_imgFinancial services regulation needs to anticipate problems rather than deal only with what has happened in the past, and see consumers as they really are, the head of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) has said.EIOPA chairman Gabriel Bernardino told a recent conference in Nice: “What we need is not more, or less, regulation, but smarter regulation.”By smart regulation, he said he meant rules that take real consumer behaviour into account, and recognise the limitations and biases in the way people make decisions.“We have to put the consumer as they really are at the heart of regulation, rather than the consumer regulators wish for,” he said, according to a text of the speech. Smart regulation also means regulation that is proportionate, he said, in that it reflects the evidence of what works and what does not.It should also be forward-looking, aiming to anticipate problems rather than address only the problems of the past, Bernardino argued.“Our aim is to have smart regulation, not killing industry with unnecessary rules,” he said, calling on the insurance industry to continue engaging with regulators in a constructive dialogue. Bernardino cautioned against constant shifts in regulation, saying: “Ceaseless change should not become the new normal.”However, he also said he did not believe there had been a loss of regulatory balance.“Among regulators, there is the general consciousness of the possibility of unintended consequences of regulation,” he said. He said they recognised the need to stop and let new regulatory approaches settle, in order to see what then needed adjusting.last_img read more

DeAWM shows institutional ‘commitment’ with two appointments

first_img“‎The high-net-worth opportunity is very significant – it is a fast-growing segment, and it has a risk appetite that is higher than the institutional side of the market,” he conceded.“But we manage more than €200bn for these clients, and we are totally committed to them.”‎As evidence of this commitment, Faissola pointed to the new hire of J J Wilczewski from Aon Hewitt as co-head of the Global Client Group for the Americas to focus on institutional investors, and the appointment of co-CIO Randy Brown to the new role of head of the insurance and pensions solutions business in the UK. Brown has previously ‎worked as global head of Deutsche Insurance Asset Management, the world’s largest manager of non-affiliated assets for the insurance industry.“Randy has been an excellent co-CIO, and I am delighted he will now turn his talents to leading the growth of our UK and IPS businesses,” said Faissola.Asoka Wöhrmann will now take on the role of sole CIO.Wilczewski will report to Dario Schiraldi, head of the Global Client Group, who said: “Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management is fully committed to serving the needs of institutional investors and their consultants.“As one of the few firms that provide a full suite of solutions across multiple asset categories and investment disciplines, we have a compelling offering for institutions in the Americas.” Michele Faissola, head of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM), has pointed to two new appointments as evidence of the firm’s “total commitment” to institutional clients, at its annual press conference in London on Tuesday.Faissola’s opening speech detailed DeAWM’s “one-bank” strategic restructuring over the past two years and focused on the global opportunity from high and ultra-high-net-worth individual clients‎.The business, which manages around €1trn in assets worldwide, plans a 15% increase in ultra-high-net-worth relationship managers through new hires.However, he emphasised that “liability-focused” institutions remained crucial to the firm’s business.last_img read more

Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition Established

first_imgAn international Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition has been formed to advance sustainable deployment of ocean-based renewable energy and mitigate the harmful impacts of climate change.Ocean-based renewable energy—such as offshore wind, floating solar, tidal and wave power—could meet nearly 10% of the annual greenhouse gas emissions reductions needed by 2050 to keep global temperatures under 1.5ºC above pre-industrial levels, according to a report released by the High-Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy.Bringing together civil society, intergovernmental institutions and industry, the Action Coalition will represent the offshore wind sector in the global dialogue on climate action. It will be spearheaded by Ørsted and Equinor. The group also includes: CWind, Global Marine Group, JERA, MHI Vestas, Mainstream Renewable Power, Shell, Siemens Gamesa, TenneT and The Crown Estate.The Action Coalition was formed in response to the September 2019 Call for Ocean-Based Climate Action made by the High-Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy, with additional partners including Global Wind Energy Council and the UN Global Compact.The Action Coalition will prepare a vision for 2050, highlighting the actions that industry, financiers and governments can take to sustainably scale-up offshore wind, and thereby contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and global decarbonization goals. Initial outputs will be announced at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon in June 2020.“If we’re serious about fighting the climate crisis, it’s vital we decarbonise the world’s energy use as quickly as possible through technologies like offshore wind. The Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition will work together to accelerate the opportunity presented by ocean renewables to achieve the Paris Agreement goals,” says Benj Sykes, vice president at Ørsted.“Collaboration between nations and companies is needed to accelerate the sustainable deployment of ocean renewable energy. This Action Coalition includes leading industry players in offshore wind and we are working together to unleash the full potential of offshore wind globally,” says Stephen Bull, senior vice president for wind and low carbon at Equinor.last_img read more

first_imgKervin Vidal. Image via: Facebook.comNewly inducted chairman of the Salisbury Enhancement Committee Kervin Vidal says the formation of the Salisbury Young Achievers program will improve the lives of the youths there.The program was officially launched at the 4th Annual General Meeting of the Salisbury Enhancement Committee on Sunday.He says the new program will ensure that the young people take part in several community-based projects.“The intervention is to do activities like movie night which we once used to have on the playing field. The back to school extravaganza, little beach clean ups. You know nowadays the students if they don’t have community service hours they can’t graduate in high school,” he said.Vidal also called on parents to encourage students to take part in the activities.“I hope parents take the opportunity to encourage their children to get onboard and you can ensure that whenever a meeting is called they attend the meeting, whenever a project is called they attend the project. We will be giving community service hours after every project depending on the activities that they take part it. It is a benefit for them and it will develop them personally,” he explained He said the new initiative will also help in personal self development for the youths.Other executive members include Neilton Vidal (vice-chairman) Candia Joseph (treasurer), Kelian Jno Baptiste (secretary), Emie Ambo (assistant secretary/treasurer), Edona Jno Baptiste (PRO) and Narelle Jno Charles (assistant PRO).Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring!

Anybody you land on..,’ Fury said. ‘Let me tell you something, in that right round, dynamite. God bless you and your family.’ Loading… Deontay Wilder’s team have told Frank Warren they intend to call an immediate rematch between the Gypsy King and his rival. Tyson Fury stopped Wilder in a magnificent performance in their Las Vegas rematch, repeatedly flooring the Bronze Bomber before the towel was throw in during the seventh round. Wilder will feel he can do better The contract for the second fight included a rematch clause, which gave the loser the right to a third bout. Wilder has 30 days to make an official decision, but his co-manager Shelly Finkel called Warren on Sunday morning to inform Team Fury of their current thinking. ‘Shelly Finkel rang me the morning after the fight to tell me they would probably invoke the immediate rematch,’ Warren told Metro.co.uk. ‘So that’s where we’re at right now. I’m assuming that the trilogy fight is going ahead.’ Fury paid tribute to Wilder after another memorable clash with the previously undefeated American. Wilder never recovered from a third-round knockdown and had blood pouring from his left ear by the end of the fight. TV cameras caught what Fury told a dazed Wilder once the fight had been stopped.last_img read more

Mignolet: SAS always give us chance

first_img “I have to be honest once they scored at 3-2 you think you are losing the game but looking back we are always there scoring goals,” he said. “We always get a chance with Daniel and Luis and we know they have goals. “Daniel scored the equaliser which was very important for us as it means we can keep going in the way we started this season and make sure we build on that. “If we win next week this can be a very important point for us.” Mignolet was Liverpool’s best player with a string of saves in the second half as Everton pushed, initially, for their equaliser. However, even he could not prevent the Reds’ weakness at set-pieces being exploited as with the first coming from a free-kick and the third a corner. “As a goalkeeper you don’t want to be busy. You like it in training but you have to do the things you are asked and do the best you can,” he added. “It is not nice to concede from set-pieces but we also scored from set-pieces (all three goals). “We have to make sure we do things better in the next few games. “But Romelu is a physical presence and sometimes you have to give credit to the attacker as well.” Aside from the overall action in the game the major talking point was Mirallas’ knee-high challenge on Suarez which left the Uruguay striker limping heavily for 10 minutes before half-time. The 26-year-old was still limping when he left Goodison Park but the tackle which manager Brendan Rodgers described as potentially career-ending was not enough to prevent him completing 90 minutes and almost snatching victory when his superb effort in added time was batted away by goalkeeper Tim Howard. Suarez, after a 7,000-mile trip from his homeland following a World Cup qualifying play-off on Wednesday, was floored for some time by Mirallas’ challenge – which referee Phil Dowd decided was worthy only of a booking. Rodgers admitted he feared the worst. “You don’t see him do that. Sometimes he rolls about but then gets up quickly but I knew it was reasonably bad when he stayed down that long,” said the Reds boss. “I don’t think there are many (who could play on). His will and determination to play is unbelievable. “He is just remarkable. He got back late Thursday night and looked surprisingly fresh in Friday’s training. “Having only one striker for six months last year gave me an idea of what his mentality is like and I know even if he is not playing well at the end of the game he can still get you something and he nearly did. “He is a player who goes to the limit every game so I have no doubts.” Despite his disappointment at conceding three goals Rodgers was pleased with his team’s battling qualities as they picked themselves up to get a draw. “When you come off after a game like that against your rivals and play like we did in parts of the game and show the character and mentality to come from behind it tells me everything about where my group is at,” he added. “We are disappointed as well because we were 2-1 up and we should have gone 3-1 (when Joe Allen inexplicably missed the target with only the goalkeeper to beat), which would have allowed us to control the game. “They ended up getting the equaliser and then we were not strong enough on a corner, Lukaku gets his header and it’s 3-2. “In a game we should never have been behind in against our rivals we had to show our character and that is what we did. “A point away from home against a rival is always a very good result but obviously we will look at it and think with a bit better control we could have won.” Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet did not think the Reds had thrown away the 221st Merseyside derby when they were trailing due to the firepower of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. Having twice led through Philippe Coutinho and a brilliant Luis Suarez free-kick – either side of Kevin Mirallas’ equaliser – Romelu Lukaku scored twice to give the Toffees a 3-2 lead with eight minutes to go. Mignolet’s Belgium team-mate appeared to have delivered a crushing blow only for Sturridge to snatch back a point in the 89th minute. Press Associationlast_img read more
