MP Pension sheds DKK13m of G4S stock, following Norwegian lead

first_imgDanish pension fund MP Pension has decided to exclude UK security firm G4S from its investments after finally losing confidence in the company’s ability avoid behaviour which breaches the DKK131bn (€17.5bn) pension fund’s policy on responsible investment.Anders Schelde, the fund’s chief investment officer, told IPE the decision had led to an instruction on 16 January to external managers working for MP Pension to sell off DKK13m of G4S stock.The pension fund’s internally-managed portfolio, on the other hand, had had no exposure to the UK firm’s equity at the time, he said.“Our managers have been reducing their exposure to G4S on behalf of us by quite a lot throughout last year, and at the beginning of this year, they only had about a quarter of the investment that they’d had in the summer of 2019,” he said. “We’ve been engaging with the company for years and years, through our services provider.“G4S have been on our radar for years, and when the Norwegian oil fund decided to divest in late autumn, and then KLP made a similar move in December, we put the stock on the agenda of our responsible investment committee’s January meeting,” said Schelde.The Council on Ethics of the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) said in November it had recommended the exclusion because of unacceptable risk that the company was contributing to or was responsible for serious or systematic human rights violations.The advisory panel specifically cited labour rights violations in the Qatar and United Arab Emirates operations of G4S, where its employees were mostly migrant workers.However MP Pension said that its own reasons for excluding the company were broader than this.“We decided to exclude G4S from our investments because there was too big a risk that we would be continually connected to breaches of our policy by staying invested, after a series of issues over many years,” Schelde said.G4S had been responsive, addressing some of the concerns expressed over the years by investors, and had, for example, developed human rights policies, Schelde said.But recurrent breaches had nevertheless painted a picture of a company unable to effectively implement these policies in its operations, he added.IPE asked G4S to comment on the divestment, but none was received by deadline.last_img read more

Cardiff fight back to earn draw

first_imgCardiff Blues courageously fought back for a 24-24 draw at the Sportsground thanks to Sam Hobbs’ controversial 78th-minute try. It was a desperately disappointing finish for Connacht who had started the second half like a train with two rapid tries from Kieran Marmion and Nathan White. Man-of-the-match Craig Ronaldson brilliantly converted both to give the hosts a commanding 24-10 lead, but the westerners’ inexperience told as they allowed Cardiff claw their way back thanks to touchdowns from Macauley Cook and replacement prop Hobbs. It was level-pegging at half-time – 10-10 – after Adam Thomas and Robbie Henshaw had swapped tries and Patchell matched Ronaldson’s five-point kicking haul. Deft hands from Danie Poolman released Willie Faloon for an early break and the flanker got his hands on the ball again before Ronaldson left-footed Connacht into a sixth minute lead. A slashing break by Lewis Jones should have resulted in a Cardiff try but he was stopped just short of the hosts’ line and Cook fumbled the next pass. The Blues – winless since round 1 of the Guinness Pro 12 – coughed up some soft penalties but they pressurised Connacht into lineout errors and a Patchell-led break-out gained the territory for their opening score. Cardiff used scrum possession to attack in midfield before quick ball released full-back Adam Thomas to punish brittle Connacht defending just to the right of the posts. Patchell converted for a 7-3 lead with 20 minutes gone. Connacht were on the back foot until their superior scrum won them a penalty on the half hour and a decision to go for the corner paid off. The resulting maul was stopped but the quick-witted Henshaw – despite being tackled by Cook – managed to stretch for the line and score. Press Association Moloney confirmed their was no double movement and Ronaldson added the conversion. However, a long range Patchell penalty somehow wobbled its way over to equalise by the interval. Pat Lam’s men kicked for territory on the resumption and it paid immediate dividends. Faloon linked with Marmion off the side of a maul and the wily scrum half stepped off his right to beat Dan Fish’s attempted tackle and crash over in the right corner. Ronaldson’s curling conversion added further momentum to Connacht’s charge in wet conditions, and he repeated the trick from the same touchline minutes later. The Blues leaked a third try when a training ground move at a lineout saw Michael Kearney tap down to Quinn Roux and he fed onrushing prop White who squeezed over by the right corner flag. Connacht failed to profit from a couple of close-in set pieces and their bonus point push never really materialised. Muldoon was unable to stop his opposite number Cook from burrowing over for a seven-pointer at the other end. That score provided a lifeline for Mark Hammett’s charges, their renewed energy leading to Hobbs’ effort from a close range drive. Patchell’s conversion kick wiped out Connacht’s lead before the shell-shocked hosts had an ambitious drop goal attempt blocked in the dying seconds. It was a marginal call by TMO Dermot Moloney as he ruled that Hobbs successfully grounded the ball against the left hand post following a mammoth 32 attacking phases from the Blues. Replays suggested that Connacht captain John Muldoon had got his body in the way as the prop stretched out, but the try was awarded and Rhys Patchell converted to draw Cardiff level for a final time. last_img read more

Wenger laments lack of leaders

first_img The 65-year-old has struggled to name a consistent back four so far this season with the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Mathieu Debuchy and Kieran Gibbs all injured at some point. Many of Wenger’s critics believe the Frenchman made an error in not strengthening his defensive options in the summer – opting instead to spend the bulk of his transfer kitty on Chile forward Alexis Sanchez. “Today it’s all more about standing up (to opponents) and there is less physical commitment because the quality of the pitches is much better. “Maybe, as well, because our societies are less aggressive, in the football education system you cultivate less that desire, it is more about the quality of the technique and maybe that creates less defenders.” Wenger admitted he had a “few names” on his list of defensive targets and pinpointed Chelsea’s central defensive partnership of Gary Cahill and skipper John Terry as examples of the dying breed of defenders he is looking for. “John Terry is a coach on the pitch,” he said. “He’s a Tony Adams, basically, organising the team because he has huge experience now and reads the game well. “Maybe (Gary) Cahill in five, six, seven years will be like that as well. He is the right age and you do not find many any more. You had more before than you do today. “With people coming in from different countries, communication has gone from the back four, much more than before and you see less people who talk. “They do not always speak the same language, they do not respond to situations in the same way. That has gone a little bit from our game.” A more attacking philosophy, with a wealth of attacking options including Sanchez, fellow summer recruit Danny Welbeck, club-record signing Mesut Ozil as well as the likes of Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud, is also putting Wenger’s defence more under the microscope. “We are getting there,” he added. “It’s not only that, I think we have more offensive players in midfield than we had at the time, it’s not only the back four. I think the whole defensive unit, we are more offensively-orientated than we were at that time.” That defence is likely to be tested on Sunday as Stoke visit north London looking for their second win over Arsenal this season after the recent 3-2 victory at the Britannia Stadium last month. Wenger is yet to decide whether goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny will return following a reprimand for smoking during a post-match shower at Southampton, but Ozil and Aaron Ramsey could play some part after returning to training. The former Barcelona man has been an instant hit at the Emirates Stadium but the Gunners sit sixth in the Premier League, largely down to their defensive deficiencies. Wenger has acknowledged that a defender is required during the January transfer window but does not feel he can replicate the success of his great teams in the past. Tony Adams, Steve Bould, Nigel Winterburn and Lee Dixon were his mainstays early on in his tenure and Wenger also highlighted the back four who featured in Arsenal’s unbeaten season of 2003/04 as another outstanding unit. But, with the game changing at a constant rate, Wenger believes there are a lack of aggressive-minded leaders to bring in. “Certainly you had more before, yes,” he said when asked if there were less leaders in the game today. “If you look at the evolution of English football, when I arrived here I had the back four and all were English. But they were not only English, they communicated because they had the same culture, the same way to see the game, they were educated together and communication is an important part. “We had a great defence after that, nobody spoke about them. The ‘Invincibles’ team were physically fantastic. Lauren, Kolo (Toure), Sol Campbell, Ashley Cole – that was a top back four. “I believe as well that the young boys practice well on quality pitches, whereas before it was muddy and you could throw your body in – it created opportunities for defenders to work naturally on their defensive technique. Arsene Wenger is in the market for defensive reinforcements but is concerned that there are not as many natural leaders in the game as when he arrived at Arsenal. Press Associationlast_img read more

Jaguars off to hunt PCL glory

first_img… Shepherd replaces HooperAFTER thumping Jamaica Scorpions in the opening round of the WICB PCL 4-Day 2016-17, defending champions Guyana Jaguars departed yesterday to hunt glory against the Leeward and Windward Islands teams.Jaguars take on Leeward Islands Hurricanes from November 18 to 21 at Warner Park before moving to the Darren Sammy Cricket ground to face the Windward Islands Volcanoes from November 25 to 28. Thereafter, they will return home to challenge Barbados Pride in a day/night encounter.The defending champs overcame a frustrating evening session after rain accounted for more than a session’s play on the final day to inflict Scorpions a 181-run defeat. It was the 18th time the Guyanese have gone undefeated since the 2013/2014 season. All the key batsmen and bowlers excelled and looked in top form.Jaguars opted for a paceman instead of a spinner for the tour. Hence, the very impressive Romario Shepherd replaces Eon Hooper. Hooper had replaced Devendra Bishoo who was called up for West Indies tri-series against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.The off-spinner went wicket-less against the Scorpions but bowled economically and showed good signs for the future.The full squad reads: Rajendra Chandrika, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Shimron Hetmyer, Leon Johnson (captain), Vishaul Singh (vice-captain), Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Raymon Reifer, Anthony Bramble, Veerasammy Permaul, Romario Shepherd, Gudakesh Motie, Keon Joseph, Christopher Barnwell.Esaun Crandon is coach with Rayon Griffith assistant coach/manager).last_img read more
