Dutch regulator calls for limited buffers in new pensions system

first_imgDe Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), the Dutch regulator, has reiterated its support for a new pensions system with individual pensions accrual.Financial buffers in any new set-up, however, should be as limited as possible to avoid future squabbles over who is entitled to the reserves, it said in a statement.The regulator also asserted that individual pension rights and age-dependent investment policies would be “crucial” building blocks in building a sustainable pensions system.Last year, DNB produced a memorandum in which it called for the abandonment of average contribution, as well as average accrual. In its latest statement, however, it allows for a collective buffer on the condition that it remain limited in scale and “cannot be negative”.In an interview with Dutch news daily De Volkskrant, Job Swank, director of monetary affairs and financial stability at DNB, confirmed that a collective buffer would be considered “if this were considered important to the unions”.He noted, however, that the added value would decrease if financial reserves exceeded 10%.This is much less than the maximum of 30% employed by the Social and Economic Council (SER) in its survey or the 20% applied by the Dutch Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis (CPB) in its comparisons with other pension contracts.A collective buffer implies risk-sharing with future generations.In its last year’s memorandum, DNB said the limited benefit of such a reserve failed to outweigh potential drawbacks, such as conflict over how the buffer should be divided up.“Risk-sharing with future generations” the regulator warned at the time, “comes with governance risks, as well as discontinuity risks.”Meanwhile, Swank said that increasing options for participants or widening the scope of mandatory pension savings were no longer a priority for DNB, which seeks to expedite the decision-making process.He said these and other elements could be added at a later stage.last_img read more

Tenants hoping to cash in on Airbnb must be aware of their rights and obligations

first_imgReiq chair and real estate agent Wayne Nicholson. Picture: Zak SimmondsAirBnB’s popularity continues to grow and the opportunity to make some extra cash is appealing to many, whether they are home owners or renters, which leads to the question – can a tenant legally sub-lease part or all of their rented property on AirBnB? And if so, under what circumstances can they do it?, writes REIQ Townsville Zone chairman Wayne Nicholson.When a tenant arranges to rent out part or all of a property they are renting this is called a sub-lease or sub-letting.The legislationThe Act that governs rental accommodation in Queensland is the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008.If a tenant wants to sub-let the property they are renting, they must seek written permission from the landlord, usually via the property manager.The Act states that the lessor/agent must not unreasonably refuse permission to sub-let or transfer the agreement from one person to another.What does this mean? Well, according to the Act it means the lessor must act reasonably in failing to agree to consent to sub-let, and will be taken to be act unreasonably if they behave in a “capricious or retaliatory way” in failing to agree to the sub-let.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020It’s important to understand that this sub-lease does not remove the original tenant’s responsibility for the property.So, for example, if Jane is renting a property from Bob and she’s going away for a fortnight, she may ask Bob if she can put it on AirBnB for the fortnight she’s away.If Bob says yes, Jane is still responsible for the property, even while she is away, so if the property is damaged by the AirBnB visitors (the sub-tenants), subject to any other agreement Jane and Bob may have in respect of this arrangement, Bob will still likely have recourse against Jane under their lease agreement in respect of that damage.If Bob says no, then Jane doesn’t have permission to sub-let the property.If Jane believes Bob has acted unreasonably in failing to agree to a sub-let arrangement then Jane can apply to a tribunal to obtain a determination.In the REIQ’s view, a landlord is more likely to say yes to a sub-lease arrangement that is a longer-term arrangement and where the normal checks and balances are in place, such as the normal vetting of the potential sub-let tenant. With AirBnB those checks and balances are not in place and this may, understandably, make some landlords nervous because they have no idea who is residing in their property.last_img read more

Ancelotti plans to overhaul Everton’s midfield

first_img However, they have won just twice and taken only nine points from their last nine matches. In comparison, Everton gained 17 points from Ancelotti’s first nine games. And the Italian believes his side can begin their upturn at home to relegation-threatened Aston Villa on Thursday. “We want to expect a reaction from the bad game we had at Wolves. A different attitude, different mentality, different character,” he said. “I understand during my time at Everton that a big part of this club is that everyone wants to see players fighting. This is the most important part. “They have to fight and then try to play well, try to win games. When there is no fight I think this is not the DNA of this club. “When the players go on the pitch they have to be comfortable, they have to know what to do. And after that the spirit is really important. read also:Everton, Chelsea face fresh battle for Lille defender Gabriel “So we have to keep the fighting spirit to ensure players have more personality and character on the pitch, are not afraid, are not worried on the pitch, and that can be the key to be competitive.” Everton face Sheffield United and Bournemouth in their final two games of the season after Villa. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Everton manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has hinted that he will look to bring in midfield reinforcements after that area of his team was exposed in Sunday’s defeat to Wolves. Criticism rained down on the players after the result ended their distant hopes of European qualification for next season. Ancelotti, a three-time Champions League winner, wants to see a dramatic improvement in their final three matches. However, he also hinted that Sunday’s loss has given him a clear plan for the upcoming transfer market. “We have to improve everywhere: in the final third, in midfield and also in defence,” the Everton boss said. “I think in this period what we showed was sometimes in midfield we needed more power, sometimes we needed more quality. We have players with quality and power and ability but we were not always able to show this quality. “We had a dream to reach Europe but the last results were not good but this doesn’t change the plan – the plan is the same and the target is to reach Europe. “I think it is not a disappointment not to reach Europe because the priority when I arrived was different, to be safe as soon as possible, as the season didn’t start well and we were down the bottom of the table in December.” Everton are unbeaten at home since the Italian arrived in December, a total of 10 league matches.center_img Promoted ContentThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love WithTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonPeople Born In The 90-s Know What It IsA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombs8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayPink Pineapples Exist – In Case You Didn’t KnowHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!10 TV Characters Who Were Destined To Become Iconic33 Celebs Photos From Their Childhood: Will You Recognize Them?last_img read more

Shryock scores abbreviated All Star Night win at Britt

first_imgBRITT, Iowa (Aug. 8) – The rainbow stretching over the backstretch at Hancock County Speedway led Kelly Shryock to an $8,800 jackpot.After starting deep in the field in Thursday and Friday features at Britt, Shryock led every lap of Saturday’s Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified All Star Night feature shortened from 50 to 36 circuits because of rain and slick track conditions.Mark Elliott started ninth and found the fastest line up top. He had closed on Shryock before the sudden checkers flew.Kyle Brown, Benji LaCrosse and Hunter Marriott followed the front pair across the stripe.Shryock earned $4,000 for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifying win, plus $2,800 in lap money and a $2,000 bonus for having raced at least eight times previously this season at Hancock County.“We’ve been trying to win here all year and finally got it done on a big night,” said Shryock, who agreed with the decision by track officials to call the race early. “It was a handful out there. Whether I was running first, second or wherever, shortening the feature was the right thing to do. You risk tearing up cars or worse yet somebody getting hurt.”With Shryock well in front, Brown held down second and Night of 10,000 Stars winner Ryan Ruter ran third before the scheduled pit stop on lap 25.That rainbow served as a backdrop to the restart. Elliott made his move toward the front on the higher line, passed Brown for second on the 33rd lap and was looking for a route around Shryock when the checkers came out.“I raced from 33rd to fifth on Thursday and from 14th to third on Friday,” said Shryock, more than satisfied with the win. “The view was a lot better from where I started tonight.”Jake Masters was the $1,000 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner, ahead of Damon Murty and Kevin Opheim.Five hundred dollar feature winners were Colby Fett in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Jeremy Wegner in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.George Nordman and Frank Parker completed the SportMod top three.

Door bags National glory

first_imgJonjo O’Neill won the Boylesports Irish Grand National for the second time in eight years as the well-backed 8-1 favourite Shutthefrontdoor prevailed in a thrilling finish at Fairyhouse. Lightly-weighted pair Toon River and Clar Na Mionn cut out the running for the first circuit, just ahead of Goonyella and Lion Na Bearnai, who was pulled-up in the Aintree version. Clar Na Mionn found himself coming under severe pressure with four fences left to jump, and he was swallowed up by the closing pack. O’Neill had last swooped in the 2007 renewal with Butler’s Cabin, while his latest hero had looked a novice chaser to follow in the early stages of this season but made mistakes as one of the leading contenders for the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham and had finished only sixth. O’Neill said: “He was in a great position all the way and jumped really well. Everything went right for him. He has done nothing wrong all season. “He had a great run at Cheltenham and after that we thought this was the race for him. Plan B didn’t work out too badly! “He will have good rest and is hopefully OK and we can look forward to next season. He needed a big leap at the last, he got it and battled on really well.” Press Associationcenter_img It was the first time Barry Geraghty had managed to get his hands on the famous prize, and he was close to the pace and travelling well in the JP McManus colours for most of the three miles and five furlongs. But the Dessie Hughes-trained Golden Wonder made an attempt to slip the field at the home turn and it was only on the short run-in that Shutthefrontdoor poked his head in front as Golden Wonder settled for second, just ahead of Saoirse Dun and Jamsie Hall. last_img read more

GFFF/Corona Beer ‘Super 16’ semi-finals on tonight at Leonora

first_imgTHE Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF) Corona Beer ‘Super 16’ Knock-out tournament has finally reached the semi-final stage, and tonight the ‘final four’ teams will attempt to book a place in Monday’s final on New Year’s Day.At the Leonora Track and Field Facility, Linden’s Milerock FC will come against Elite League champions, the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) at 18:00hrs, while in-form Fruta Conquerors will collide with Grove Hi-Tech in the second match of the double-header.When play continued at the Leonora facility last Wednesday evening, Grove Hi-Tech marched to the semi-finals with a come-from-behind win over Police FC in extra time, 2-1, while Fruta Conquerors proved why they are one of the favourite clubs to win the inaugural tournament, with a 5-0 drubbing of Buxton United.Both teams, Police FC and Grove Hi-Tech ensured that they utilised wisely the GFF’s guest player ruling, and sought the services of some of the country’s top players, who are not a part of the Federation’s Elite League.Police FC, equipped with Gregory ‘Jackie Chan’ Richardson, made solid runs at goal, but it was Quinsi Holder, who provided the side’s lone goal in the 72nd minute.However, two minutes in stoppage time (90+2), Grove Hi-Tech captain and leading scorer Domini Garnett, scored an equaliser, resulting in extra team play.It was not until the second extra time that Grove Hi-Tech were able to break the deadlock, thanks to Nicholai Matthews.Meanwhile, Anthony ‘Awo’ Abrams and Eon Alleyne scored a double, while Jermaine Junor netted the other in Fruta Conquerors’ one-sided 5-0 win over a hapless Buxton United.The winning team will collect $2M, second-placers $1M while third- and fourth-placed teams are expected to pocket $500 000 and $250 000 respectively.last_img read more
