Beazley hit with $105m hurricane costs

first_imgThursday 8 November 2018 8:16 pm whatsapp whatsapp But the insurer, which covers a range of areas including kidnapping and terrorism, said gross written premiums rose 11 per cent to $1.9bn ($1.4bn) for the nine months to the end of September. It said the US market remains the driving force behind its growth.The company’s property team has benefited from rate changes following last year’s natural catastrophes. Premiums increased 21 per cent year on year to $340m.In October insurers Swiss Re estimated costs of roughly $1.1bn in its third quarter from natural disasters.Beazley announced it will no longer underwrite construction and engineering business, an area that accounted for 10 per cent of the divisions premiums in 2017, saying it would not satisfy its profitability expectations.Chief executive Andrew Horton said: “Our business continues to deliver double digit premium growth and has been aided by higher rates in some classes following last year’s catastrophe losses.” Lloyds of London insurer Beazley today said it expects costs of roughly $105m after a series of natural disasters in the US and Asia.Beazley said the payouts following hurricanes Florence and Michael and typhoons Jebi and Trami are in line with expectations. He added: “Geographically, the main engine of our premium growth continues to be the US market, where we saw premiums rise 18% relative to the first nine months of last year. We expect this positive momentum to continue and are aiming to deliver high single digit growth for the group again in 2019.”City A.M. yesterday named Beazley as the second tenant in Twentytwo, the City’s tallest skyscraper. The insurers will take 50,000 square feet (sq ft) over two floors when the building is completed late next year.

City regulator probes Woodford depositary Northern Trust

first_imgThe probe into depositary Northern Trust has been ongoing for months, Wealth Manager first reported. A depositary essentially keeps the authorised corporate director (ACD) – in this case Link – in check. FCA launches probe into Woodford depositary Northern Trust However there is still £500m of Equity Income fund assets stuck in illiquid companies. Given the coronavirus crisis there is unlikely to be much progress made. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ The FCA and Northern Trust both declined to comment. The City regulator has launched an investigation into Neil Woodford’s depositary Northern Trust over the events that led to the gating of the flagship Equity Income fund last June. Last June the fund was suspended after becoming overwhelmed by investor withdrawal requests, leading to the investment industry’s biggest crisis in years.  The suspension eventually led to Woodford shuttering the business in October. whatsapp Friday 24 July 2020 2:04 pm The regulator’s fund governance handbook states the depositary must ensure ACDs and fund managers are sticking to the rules in areas like unit pricing, dealing, borrowing restrictions and portfolio valuation. In January, Link Fund said investors trapped in WEI face charges of £10m from the wind-up of the fund. It detailed costs of £5m in January accrued since mid-October when it sacked Woodford. Provision for a further £5.3m of costs has also been made.  Wealth Manager reported that the FCA is looking at whether Northern Trust challenged the build-up of illiquid holdings in Woodford’s fund, which breached the 10 per cent limit on unquoted stocks. At one point it reached 18 per cent. Around £2.1bn was handed back to the 300,000 investors locked in the fund in January, at a payout of 46p to 57p per share compared to its 100p launch price.  The fund is now being liquidated with assets being sold off to help investors recover some of their losses.

Murkowski pays virtual visit to Haines as Biden approves major disaster declaration for Southeast Alaska

Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, talks to reporters in the Alaska Capitol in Juneau after her annual address to the Legislature on Feb. 18, 2020. (Photo by Skip Gray/KTOO)Snow canceled U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski’s in-person visit to Haines, but she met virtually with officials and Beach Road evacuees on Wednesday.Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/17VirtualVisit.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Murkowski says she typically makes a few regional stops when she’s in the state’s capitol for the annual legislative address. This year she said there was no doubt Haines would be a destination.“The snow and the ice and the rain are not allowing for an in-person visit. So I’m particularly disappointed that I wasn’t able to just be sitting down and listening to the residents, being able to see for myself some of what you’re still dealing with,” Murkowski said.The Senator spent several hours on the phone with Beach Road evacuees, Mayor Douglas Olerud, Interim Borough Manager Alekka Fullerton, members of the Emergency Operations Center and members of the Haines Borough Assembly.The senator’s visit coincided with President Joe Biden’s approval of the major disaster declaration in Southeast Alaska. Murkowski says it will help Haines, but it’s not clear yet exactly how.“It’s welcome news. What we know it will do is open up avenues of support at the federal level that that you’ve not been able to access. So what exactly that means for the community of Haines yet, is what, working with FEMA, the mayor and the city will be looking to understand,” she said.The weather disaster in Haines is not the only hardship the region faced last year. Murkowski said she is pursuing ways to aid the hard-hit tourism sector, including exceptions to the Passenger Vessel Service Act that keep large cruise ships out of the state this year.“It is not looking as optimistic as we would like. We have been pressing the Canadian government on this to try to allow for, not exemptions, but just  let’s work some processes,” she said.Murkowski also said President Biden’s $350 billion dollar pandemic relief proposal is too large. She says she would rather see targeted, need-based spending. But she says she supports additional federal financial aid for states and municipalities to spend.Alaska has lost a greater share of revenue than most states due to COVID-19.“There is ample evidence as to why additional relief is necessary at the state, local and tribal level,” said Murkowski.Murkowski says she may have been weathered out of Haines this week, but it won’t be her last attempt at a visit. She says Haines will be on the schedule again … hopefully in person and in a post-mask era.Share this story:last_img read more

“Bribes Given as ‘Bridal Gifts’ at an Executive Official’s Wedding”

first_imgNewsEconomy By Daily NK – 2006.09.07 9:49pm News Facebook Twitter News AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] [imText1]Beginning from employees, cash and goods are becoming more prevalent providing the basis of a nest payment for weddings of sons and daughters of North Korean government executive officials.Even in North Korea marriages are not only considered family affairs but as big auspicious events where everyone in the village celebrates. Despite living conditions being hard, it is considered customary for relatives and work colleagues to congratulate the newlyweds with ‘bridal money.’Needless to say after Kim Il Sung’s death in 1994, marriages were prohibited for 3 years and during the times where food provisions were low, marriages were considered inconceivable. Then as conditions somewhat improved families of upper classes increasingly tried to organize modest wedding events.In villages it is common to give food gifts such as rice or vegetables, however in the cities it is by in large more common to give cash. In the past until the early 90’s, each individual would bestow 5~10won. In the mid-90’s it was 100~500won and recently, the gift has reached 1,000won($0.33). This amount is equivalent to the cost of 1 kilo of rice.An inside North Korean source said “More recently, close friends are giving 5,000~10,000won($1.67~3.33). People who work for foreign currency or traders with lots of money are even donating $100.”However, the source said “The wedding ceremonies of executive officer’s sons and daughters such as private secretaries in charge of provinces, secretaries in charge of organizations, executives of the safety agency, secretaries of public thought, secretaries of enterprises and persons in charge of labor organizations who are ratified by (North) Korea Central Workers’ Party, city or provincial party’s are so different to commoners to the point dollars, foreign currency like Chinese notes, electric goods such as TV and refrigerators, foreign clothing, necessities of life, alcohol and cigarettes are given as bridal gifts.”Busy hosting food for days and collecting giftsWhat’s more, pheasants are presented on wedding tables (a pair of cock and hen pheasants) brought from breeding farms. Pheasants can only be exclusively used for paying to the central party and for foreign currency earning but is prohibited at others. Moreover, those officials collect tens of kilos of grains and meat needed at wedding ceremonies through district level of executive official or from Jangmadang.This source said “Though executives officials may seem to quietly conduct their wedding ceremonies during the day, when it is nighttime, party organization officals, the People’s Safety Agency, the Security Agency, small enterprises, furthermore anyone even a photographer with a substantial income offers money. It seems that they are each taking turns to rake in the money.”The source said “I heard from a party executive official that it is common that a couple of thousands of dollars remains after hosting a wedding of such.”In 1989, party executive officials were precautious under Kim Jong Il’s directive to “Conduct plain weddings as the nation is experiencing turmoil due to a shortage of food.” However recently as administrative regulation has eased and management more corrupt, it is becoming common practice to rely to on bribery payments.At a People’s Safety Agency in ‘○○○’ district of South Hamkyung, a defector who worked as an administrative employee until 2004 stated “Giupsos (state owned enterprise), employees from the People’s Safety Agency or national organizations need to look worthy in front of their party executive officials and thus have little choice but to offer bribes. If you do not, you are accused of not accomplishing government policies and are hassled to the point it is difficult to continue working.”In order to receive these donations, party executive officials continue to entertain guests for a week even after the wedding is over.On the other hand, the average North Korean cannot even obtain a car for a drive in the city to symbolize their wedding. As it is difficult for a groom to acquire a car for his bride to ride, it is known that factory freight cars are being used. In order to borrow an official’s car it costs 3,000~4,000won ($1~1.33), so it is more common that transportation is borrowed from nearby factories.The source remarked “As executive officials gather large amounts of money at weddings, they are setting a trend where monetary gifts are given at 60th and 61st birthdays. Hence, it is only the workers who work endlessly with their tongues hanging out in preparation for these donations.” SHAREcenter_img News There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest “Bribes Given as ‘Bridal Gifts’ at an Executive Official’s Wedding” US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) last_img read more

TSX closes higher in broad-based advance

Keywords Marketwatch upclose stock market arrows green and red piren/123RF Canadian Press Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectors The gains came after Saudi Arabia’s energy minister assured Canada that the kingdom’s diplomatic dispute with Ottawa won’t affect oil sales, while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday acknowledged some human rights progress in the country while remaining firm in Canada’s criticism.“It looks like tensions are easing somewhat, based on what Trudeau said and then the fact that Saudi Arabia said it would continue to supply Canada with oil,” said Anish Chopra, managing director with Portfolio Management Corp. in Toronto. “I would say it’s neutral to modestly positive, because the markets have certainly bounced a bit.”Tensions between the countries flared after Global Affairs Canada last week criticized the arrest of an activist blogger in the country. The kingdom responded by suspending future trade deals with Canada and reportedly ordered the selloff of Canadian assets among other measures.The S&P/TSX capped information technology index had the highest gains at 1.6%.

Photo courtesy Battle Ground School District“It would be a shame to close the school simply because many of our students are prepared for college by the 11th grade,” said Charlotte Propst, a recent graduate of the program.District Superintendent Mark Ross says his goal isn’t to shut down CAM Academy, but to move the 3-8 grades of the program into new portable classrooms on the Maple Grove campus, and merge the high school grade levels with the River HomeLink program, to save the district money and bring CAM’s Advanced Placement (AP) offerings to more of the district’s students.“We’re hoping that through this recommendation we can do something that’s fiscally sound, continues the excellent tradition at CAM Academy, and gives us the opportunity to perhaps even expand the 3-8 program to perhaps a K-8 program,” said Ross at Monday’s meeting.CAM, which stands for Character and Academics for the Marketplace, was started in 1996 as part of the district’s HomeLink system which provides “support to homeschooling families who felt disenfranchised.” By all accounts, CAM Academy has been hugely successful. The program boasts a 93 percent on-time graduation rate, and has earned numerous state awards for academic achievement. CAM’s attendance rate in the 2017-18 school year was over 96 percent, among the highest in the state. Student test scores are often 28 to 37 points higher in language arts, math, and science, compared to the rest of the district’s public schools.But that success, it seems, may be a double-edged sword.“Currently, about 95 percent of the juniors and seniors go to Running Start from CAM Academy,” says Ross, meaning that enrollment drops precipitously in the 11th and 12th grades and state funding per student dries up at that point.CAM Academy moving to Maple Grove campus in 2020 There was a packed house at the Lewisville Intermediate Campus for the Battle Ground School Board meeting. Most were there to hear about the future of CAM Academy. Photo by Chris Brown“CAM students are motivated, driven students who have been prepared to succeed in a college environment,” said Propst. “Running Start is a smart choice, because it can considerably offset the college costs. Is the school district wanting to punish CAM Academy, one of their most successful programs, because their students are planning for college?”Despite the success of the CAM model, enrollment has been declining, says Ross, from 582 full-time students in 2014, to 521 in 2017.The school has also drawn criticism for its enrollment process which, while deemed “open,” has a number of restrictions including academic record and grade level testing. While CAM is technically an alternative school, it receives public money, leading some to believe admission standards similar to a private school should not be allowed. In his comments on Monday, Ross said there is growing belief that a successful program like CAM needs to be open to more students in order to provide “equitable and financially viable” educational programs.Former board member Mavis Nickels echoed that sentiment in her remarks, saying the board is “seeking that same ideal, not just for your students, but for every one of the nearly 13,000 students in the district.”But it’s clear the close-knit community of CAM Academy isn’t likely to take kindly to talk of opening the doors to more students. Calls for a more truly “open” admissions process resulted in several outbursts in the gathered crowd including words such as “ridiculous” and “unbelievable.”Building costsRoss says the reason for his recommendation has nothing to do with CAM itself, but more to do with the cost and limitations of the building that has housed the program for 26 years.The district has leased space from Gary Albers, who owns the 35,000-square-foot building at 715 NW Onsdorff Blvd, since CAM was started in 1996. The $500,000 a year, or nearly $48,000 per month, adds up to nearly $9 million over those 26 years. In 2018, the district renewed their lease with Albers through this coming school year, but determined to look at alternatives in the meantime.Albers, by the way, also teaches 8th grade Geography at CAM Academy.Ross says the lease of Albers’ building has caused CAM Academy to run a deficit of $534,251 in the 2017-18 school year, compared to a $27,115 surplus for River HomeLink, which meets on the former Maple Grove Middle School campus.In early 2018, Albers offered to sell the building to the school district at a cost of $3.5 million, but the board voted against it, citing issues over problems with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance, and a lack of space to grow in the future.At Monday’s meeting, Albers said there are plans to add a lift to the interior of the building.“Also at City Hall is the application for a new parking lot and a change in traffic, which is going to improve greatly the drop-off and pick-up capability for our students,” Albers told the board, while contending impact fees could be used to fix up the building.Albers passed around documents he says prove that purchasing his existing building would be far more cost-effective for the district than a new building, or even a series of ten-plexes to house CAM’s students, who use the facilities 3-4 days a week. Ross said the district lacks funding to build a new building, or even buy an existing one, but could use impact fees to cover the cost of portables on the Maple Grove campus.Albers said his research shows the district could use impact fees to upgrade his building if they purchased it.Half a decisionWith that question unanswered, the board voted 4-1 to move ahead with moving CAM students onto the Maple Grove campus starting in the 2020-21 school year, but held off on changes to the high school grade levels for now.Ross had proposed merging CAM’s high school grade levels with River HomeLink, which was founded three years before CAM.“CAM was established to provide a ‘high school continuation for HomeLink families …’” said Ross, “I believe that we already have that option, and on a larger scale, with River HomeLink and River Online.”Ross denied his plan was ever to abolish CAM Academy’s high school program.“It gives us the ability to expand the AP (Advanced Placement) classes, with more students available to take those classes,” he told the board. “I don’t see us not offering any of the classes that are currently at CAM high school, it just gives us the opportunity to offer more and perhaps have more students stay with us instead of going to Running Start.”River HomeLink has 889 full-time students as of the 2017 school year, at a cost of $5,158 per student to the district, Ross says. By comparison, students at CAM cost the district approximately $6,835 each.It should be noted here that the average cost per student in the Battle Ground Public School district at large is approximately $9,240, according to the state superintendent’s office.Olivia Parrish, an incoming senior at CAM, said she’s not so much concerned about where they go to school, but about maintaining the core group of instructors and students.“The building we learn in doesn’t really matter,” she said. “Maintaining the student body and faculty does, as it would preserve the wonderful culture and climate of the school.”And that seemed to be the primary concern of most of the other parents and students who spoke out on Monday, concerned that blending CAM’s high school grades with River HomeLink would lead to a watering down of the successful culture built at CAM.“CAM Academy is CAM Academy,” said Mindy Davis, who has three children at the school, including two at the high school level. “You combine it with anything else it’s no longer CAM. It’s no longer what I chose, or any of these other parents chose for their children.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Battle GroundClark CountyLatestshare 0 Previous : Vancouver Police investigate convenience store robberies Next : Woodland Public Schools offers help to parents and students for the start of the school yearAdvertisementThis is placeholder text guestLabelcenter_img Name*Email*Website guestLabel 0 Comments Inline FeedbacksView all commentslast_img read more
