Eleven pension funds, collectively valued at £180bn, have banded together to back the new code, set out by the FRC in July. In a letter sent to the financial watchdog, the pension funds said they “welcomed the FRC’s initiative” and the code’s “potential to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and companies”.The BT Pension Scheme Management, BBC Pension Fund, RAILPEN Investment, Environment Agency Pension Fund and the University Superannuation Scheme were among some of the largest of the signatories. Daniel Summerfield at the Universities Superannuation Scheme, said: “The onus is now on institutional investors to respond positively and constructively to the Code if we want to avoid any further regulation in this area.”Regional pension funds, Lothian Pension Fund, Local Authority Pension Fund Forum, Merseyside Pension Fund, Northern Ireland Local Government Officers’ Superannuation Committee, Strathclyde Pension Fund and the West Midland Pension Fund were also involved. The Stewardship Code is aimed at creating more transparency over how investors oversee the companies they own, with hopes that it will act as a catalyst for better engagement between shareholders and companies.The FRC has said that it will continuously review the code, a move heralded by the pension funds. last_img read more

Dutch court rejects appeals over igaming fines

first_img Email Address Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Two companies have been ordered to pay almost €400,000 in fines some two years after they were found to have broken Dutch gambling laws.Simbat Entertainment Systems Limited, a games developer, faces a fine of €270,000 and Spinity Limited has been fined €100,000 after they failed in an appeal to The Court of The Hague over a ruling against them by Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) in July 2017.The fine for Simbat was imposed because the company offered games of chance via at least 11 different websites. Spinity acted as a promotional agent for Simbat and was found to be promoting Simbat’s gambling games.The Hague court rejected the operators’ appeal in a ruling on June 6, and only now has the KSA published its decision.“Under current law, it is not possible to obtain a license to offer online games of chance. That means that offering online games of chance is by definition illegal,” said the KSA, in a statement. “Advertising of online games of chance is also not allowed.“Participants in online gambling are not protected; it is not possible to check the fairness of the game and the exclusion of minors. It is also not possible to check whether gambling addiction is prevented.”The KSA is in the process of developing the licensing framework for legal online gambling after the Netherlands’ Remote Gambling Act passed the country’s Senate in February after years in limbo.The regulator last week revealed that 79 operators have expressed an interest in applying for an online gaming licence in the country ahead of the market’s scheduled opening on January 1, 2021.

The house consists of a basic composition of two designed boxes in which the living and sleeping spaces are located. It was the owner’s firm request to create a strong relationship between the house and its garden and to allow a lot of light to enter the house.Save this picture!© Yannick MilpasAs the south edge of the house borders the street, this seemed at first a paradoxical condition. This contrasting idea led to the creation of a large patio to the south west that would bring the light into the house and to work with a lot of glass to the north east to enable a clear view on the garden pavilion and terrace.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe visitor is welcomed in a patio functioning both as light attractor and carport. The outer room gives a feeling of spaciousness that can also be found in the living room. A functional service block separates the living room from the patio.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Yannick MilpasIn the design the border between inside and outside is often blurred: the living space is oriented to the garden, which in its turn is edged by the pavilion at the end of the garden.As the design of the pavilion and the terrace is consistent with that of the house a strong relationship between house and garden is established.  The patio links the entrance hall, stairs and service door entrance. Only a minimalistic glass wall creates a real border.

Wine and Beer Bill Headed to Governor’s Desk

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Wine and Beer Bill Headed to Governor’s Desk State Representative Dave Ober (R-Albion) has authored a bill to address a local concern involving wineries and distilleries. House Bill (HB) 1053 would allow farm wineries, microbreweries and artisan distilleries to serve their beer, wine or liquor at the same service bar without requiring a structure to separate the service of beer and wine. The bill passed unanimously out of the Indiana House of Representatives and has also passed the Senate this week. “This bill works to address an issue that was brought to my attention by a local farm winery and microbrewery in my district,” said Rep. Ober. “House Bill 1053 is intended to remove some of the burden facing both business owners and consumers that go to farm wineries, microbreweries and artisan distilleries that occupy the same building.” Facebook Twitter Currently, the Alcohol and Tobacco Commission requires microbreweries and farm wineries that occupy the same building to have a wall or partition separating the areas of service for beer and wine. This legislation would lessen the burden on business owners and allow customers easier access to their products. “I am pleased to author a bill that addresses a problem for local businesses in my district and across the state,” said Rep. Ober. “As a state representative, it is rewarding any time I can take a problem facing my community and present a solution.” The measure is on its way to the Governor’s desk where it will likely be approved.

In his application, Talwar said there was no chance that the investigation could be hampered.A Delhi court had earlier dismissed his interim bail application, moved on medical grounds in view of coronavirus, noting that he was lodged in Tihar central jail here where all the facilities were available.The court had passed the order after the ED counsels said that the jail authorities had not filed any report about Talwar’s health condition which suggests he risks the infection.According to the ED, Talwar was the founding member of NGO Advantage India which received foreign contribution of Rs 90.72 crore from MBDA England, a leading European missile manufacturer, and Airbus France under CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) funding between 2012-13 to 2015-16.”Investigation has revealed that the NGO booked ‘bogus’ expenditure under various heads to show that foreign donation was utilised for various purposes,” the agency had said.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Firms urged to extend festive spirit to lunch

first_img Previous Article Next Article Employers are being urged to extend lunch hours during the Christmas periodin a bid to improve staff loyalty and retention in a tightening labour market. A survey, by Amazon.co.uk, exclusive to Personnel Today, shows over half ofoffice employees take up to half an hour extra for their lunch breaks inNovember and December to get their Christmas shopping done. Only 12 per cent of employers award time off in the run up to Christmas. Four out of 10 office staff take up to an hour extra at lunch time, withonly 6 per cent squeezing gift buying into their set break. Almost a third of employees have said they were stuck in traffic or on atube to explain their extended lunch times. A third of the 1,000 office staff polled admit they sneak out in theafternoon or leave early from work to do Christmas shopping. Eight out of 10 believe organisations should designate specific time forChristmas shopping. Business psychologist Marie Mosely said, “An additional hour to doChristmas shopping is likely to be motivational and will help contribute to ahappier working environment, which ultimately impacts positively on the bottomline.” Firms urged to extend festive spirit to lunchOn 13 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.

Conferences are brain-cell massacres

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Conferences are brain-cell massacresOn 18 May 2004 in Personnel Today Today, I am going to betray the profession – the top part, at any rate. Allthose people who wander off to exotic locations (Harrogate, for example) totake part in the learning sham that is HR conferencing. Yes – I am putting the‘con’ into conference. Let’s be clear; it’s not the organisers, the speakers or even the locales Iam having a go at. It’s HR, for daring to claim that this is a learningexercise, rather than a great excuse to hammer the expense account. Conferences are not about brain stimulation, they’re about brain-cellmassacre, as another glass of wine tips the scales and leads you to thatinevitable conclusion just around midnight: “I can dance – watch me!”One speaker at a conference I recently attended, at the end of his tetherdespite the enormous salary he was getting, said: “This is good advice,but I guarantee you won’t do anything about it.” Not that he cared. HR’sinaction meant he could use the same line on the conference circuit year in andyear out. And people thought he was joking…The thing is, you are way to busy to actually do any of this new stuff youpick up at conferences. You’re bogged down already; if you come back trying tobehave like Superman/woman, people are going to laugh at you. Still, you needto get ahead – deal with that ‘big picture’ stuff if you’re going to make itonto the board. So what to do? Should HR slice itself in two, making a clear strategic/admindivide? I’ll leave you to think about that while I dream up ways to justifysome enormous expenses accumulated during my last getaway – sorry, seminar. Hartley is an HR director at large last_img read more
