Although the potential fine could have been as high as €500,000, the AFM limited the penalty for the notaries scheme to less than €5,000.It said the SNPF had acted pro-actively and cited the scheme’s limited scale, adding that the fine would ultimately have been shouldered by its 6,390 participants.In a statement, the SNPF said it had reported the omission to the AFM and subsequently had done “everything possible to rectify the problem”. The Dutch Financial Markets Authority (AFM) has fined SNPF, the €1.2bn occupational pension fund for notaries, for failing to inform leaving participants about their options for value transfer.The communications watchdog found that the scheme, between 2010 and 2013, failed to provide legally required information in more than 420 instances.It said the information had been important to help departing members make a well-considered choice about the transfer of their pension rights, enabling them to ask their new pensions provider for a quote for value transfer.In the Netherlands, the previous provider must transfer the accrual rights, if the participant requests a quote and subsequently asks for such a transfer during his first six months in a new pension plan.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had already boosted his squad with the addition of Fabio, Kenwyne Jones, Magnus Wolff Eikrem, Mats Moller Daehli and Jo Inge Berget since succeeding Malky Mackay as Bluebirds boss. Zaha, 21, is the most high profile of his acquisitions, although it has taken longer to conclude the deal than had been expected. He said: “Andreas is speaking to Copenhagen, it is not 100 per cent done yet. We will confirm when it happens. “He has had a hard time, he came here with big potential, he is a young kid and young kids are not the ones you expect to carry a team. He is a young man who will play a lot of good football in his career.” Solskjaer had previously stated the signing of Zaha would be his last of the transfer window. But, while remaining coy on a move for Lazio defender Michael Ciani, Solskjaer acknowledged he could yet do more business. “The phone is always ringing and you have got to be polite as you never know what may be possible, although we are probably done with signings. There may be players going out, there are a few things that need to be concluded today,” he said. Of Ciani he added: “I can’t tell you who I have looked at as it’s a very big list with the preferred options I looked at, although some haven’t gone through. But I cannot confirm or deny that one out of respect to the player and the club.” Cardiff later confirmed that winger Craig Conway, who scored the goal which sealed the Bluebirds’ Championship title triumph at Burnley, has joined Blackburn on a two-and-a-half-year deal. Cardiff have completed their sixth January signing, bringing in Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on loan for the rest of the season. Solskjaer said: “That signing should be done by now. His name is on the paperwork. He is a Cardiff player. “He has pace, power, technical ability and goes past people. He will give us that extra change of tempo in the final third, where we really need it. “He will bring that little final bit to find pockets of space and produce a bit of magic.” But the Norwegian does not believe Zaha has anything to prove, despite his limited opportunities since moving to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace. “I don’t think he has something to prove, he wants to play,” said the former Red Devils striker. “He played a few games at United, but maybe not what he hoped for when he went there. “He wants to play, to play with confidence and keep Cardiff in the Premier League.” Solskjaer also confirmed striker Andreas Cornelius, signed for £8million by Mackay last summer, is in talks over a return to FC Copenhagen.

The now No. 2 ranked University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (26-3-1, 16-3-1 WCHA) is coming off of a disappointing series split against Minnesota State in Mankato. The loss the team suffered in the second game of the series led to the Badgers’ drop in national rankings from the No.1 spot to No. 2. This week will be only the sixth week of the season in which the team has not occupied the top spot. Their drop in the rankings should provide ample motivation for the team in this weekend’s series against The Ohio State University (17-8-5, 10-6-4).Women’s Hockey: How Abby Roque became one of top offensive weapons for BadgersAbby Roque’s journey to the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team was anything but typical. For starters, she hails from Read…The Badgers and the Buckeyes faced off earlier in the season in a series that saw Wisconsin handle Ohio State with ease, outscoring the Buckeyes 10–3 in two games. Though the Badgers escaped Columbus with two dominating victories, Ohio State is a formidable opponent that has played well in WCHA play, sitting third in the standings behind Wisconsin and Minnesota. With a sweep of Ohio State, Wisconsin can clinch a regular season conference championship and the number one seed in the postseason tournament.Coming into this matchup, Ohio State ranks in the middle of the pack in just about every conference statistical category. A large percentage of their offensive production comes from junior forward Emma Maltais who has scored 50 points so far this season — good for fourth in the conference. Women’s Hockey: Badgers seek to extend 27 game winning streak vs Minnesota StateThe No. 1 ranked Wisconsin women’s hockey team (25-2-1, 15-2-1 WCHA) will bring a four-game win streak into this weekend’s Read…The only three players in the WCHA who have scored more points this season than Maltais reside in Madison. Junior Daryl Watts leads the Badgers and the whole conference with 66 points in 30 games. Behind Watts are fellow Badger forwards Sophie Shirley and Abby Roque with 54 and 51 points, respectively.This series is especially important for Watts as she can strengthen her case for the Patty Kazmaier Award. This highly coveted award is given annually to the best NCAA women’s hockey player in the nation. If she is to take the award home, she would be Wisconsin’s sixth winner — tying Harvard for the most all time.This series is the final home series of the regular season for the Badgers. They will have the opportunity to close their regular season home schedule off right with Sunday’s game being an endeavor to “Fill the Bowl.”An axe to grindThe University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota have perhaps the most storied rivalry in college sports, as the Read…This is a unique experience for the Badgers as the Kohl Center holds almost eight times as many spectators than LaBahn Arena and will be packed to the brim. In 2017 against St. Cloud State, Badger hockey fans helped set the NCAA attendance record for a women’s hockey game at 15,359 in the Kohl Center. They will undoubtedly look to match this number Sunday in a pivotal conclusion to the regular season against the Buckeyes.
