first_imgWhile the hedging portfolio made a large gain in the first quarter, the value of the guaranteed pensions it protects increased by DKK32.1bn, ATP reported, saying the gain was mainly due to movements in long Danish and European government bonds.The loss on the investment portfolio, meanwhile, equated to 26% of the average value of the bonus potential over the reporting period, ATP said.ATP’s total assets stood at DKK889bn at the end of March, little changed from their value of DKK886bn at the end December. However, within this figure, the investment portfolio shrank to DKK98.3bn from DKK126bn.This portfolio had been widely affected by negative returns on financial markets, ATP said, particularly those on international listed equities and inflation-related instruments, while state and mortgage bonds had produced positive returns.Chief executive Bo Foged told IPE: “We are still able to deliver on the lifelong guarantees the we have promised despite the turbulence in the markets.“We have a very robust business model, which puts 80% of contributions into our hedging portfolio, and we still have a very strong funding ratio of close to 112%,” he said.ATP’s business model came in for particular criticism last year, and the fund’s supervisory board revealed it was conducting a review.Asked if guarantees having held in such tough markets would silence critics of ATP’s business model, Foged said: “Well I’m happy that we didn’t make any change to our business model in fall last year.“But that doesn’t change the fact that we are doing a thorough review of our business model and that the low interest rate levels are a challenge.”COVID-19 experienceFoged said members of ATP’s investment department began working from home on 12 March when the Danish lockdown started, and hardware from the Hillerød offices such as trading screens were set up in individual staff homes.“Our investment processes are mostly straight through processing and we have prepared for different crisis scenarios, so we had emergency processes in place and everyone knew what their role was,” he said.“We had meetings daily, and the main reason it worked was because we had discussed it before and had our fire drills,” said Foged.Although previous emergency planning had not specifically addressed a pandemic scenario, Foged said it had involved plans of action for dealing with increased market volatility, and also what might happen if the fund were to be hit by cyber attacks or similar circumstances.“But in general we have spent a lot of energy over the last couple of years to simplify and automate most of our investment processes,” the chief executive said.“That turned out to be very useful because we were able to focus on the big decisions and not waste valuable time on practicalities and operational issues.” March’s rollercoaster financial markets left Denmark’s biggest pension fund with a 26% fall in its leveraged investment portfolio, but its chief executive said the fact it was nevertheless able to honour more than €100bn of guarantees marked the strength of its business model.In its first quarter report, ATP – which manages the population-wide labour-market supplementary pension scheme – said the value of its investment portfolio fell by DKK29.2bn (€3.85bn) before tax while its much larger hedging portfolio gained DKK30.4bn.The pension fund’s hedging portfolio consists of bond-like investments and is designed to back the fund’s pension promises.The investment portfolio is based on the bonus potential plus borrowing of around twice that value from the hedging portfolio, and invests on an absolute-return basis to maintain the purchasing power of pensions.last_img read more

first_img “Obviously you put your own reputation on the line because everybody knows I’ve never been relegated and they were in a dreadful position at the time – but it was a challenge and I do like challenges,” Pulis told BBC’s Football Focus. “Steve Parish was very persistent – I think he spoke to me on three occasions. “I spoke to a lot of people and a lot of people said it wouldn’t be a club to go to for all sorts of reasons. “But I spoke to Sir Alex (Ferguson) and I spoke to (Stoke chairman) Peter Coates and they were really the two – they thought it could be done, it wasn’t an impossible job, they mentioned the crowd and the supporters being 110 per cent behind the club and the team. “Steve came down to Bournemouth and we sat down in the house and that was the first time I thought, ‘I’m going to do this, I’m going to take the challenge'”. Pulis has been linked with managerial posts at QPR and Newcastle this season, with both clubs currently sitting in the bottom three.

first_img Press Association Salomon Rondon faces a race against time to make his West Brom debut as the £12million man battles for fitness. He said: “The first four games of the season are very difficult for us. “To have Man City and Chelsea as the two home games to start with is very difficult, then to play a newly promoted team on their first home game is tough. Then we have a derby with Stoke. “The transfer window is still going on and things are going on behind the scenes so these four games are always going to be difficult. “Watford have signed some good players from abroad and they look strong, they look as if they have brought good players into the country.” The pair could make the trip to Vicarage Road with Pulis hopeful his new boys will be available. “He’s done very well,” Pulis said of Rondon. “Him and Gnabry have spent a lot of time working with the fitness coach. “But Salomon has showed a great attitude, he’s a great lad and we’ve been impressed with him. He reminds me a little bit of Demba Ba in the way he wants to run off shoulders and is quick and strong. “He is that type. He has got that willingness to get to where you want him to be, which is in behind defences. “They have worked hard in the last week or so, the two of them, and I will assess it with the medical team to see if they’re ready, if not to start then for the bench.” Gareth McAuley is also available after a calf injury ruled him out of Monday’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City. The Baggies are looking to recover from their opening defeat, where Pulis admitted he got his tactics wrong, a nd they head to the Hornets with the boss braced for a tough opening.
