Mandate roundup: Denmark’s newly-merged Norlys seeks pensions manager

Posted on by

first_imgNorlys, the Danish electricity, television and telecommunications firm formed from a big merger last year, is on the hunt for a pensions and insurance firm to take over the management of all the various pension schemes and employee insurance contracts it is inheriting.The company, formed from the companies SE and Eniig, is inviting tenders for a comprehensive contract for a list of pension and insurance schemes of Norlys Holding and its underlying companies, according to a notice on the EU’s TED public contracts site.Norlys said other firms it acquires or merges with during the contract period may also be included in the schemes it listed in the tender, on the same terms.The company Eniig Fibernet, which Norlys said was expected to be set up 1 October 2020, is also part of the tender. The pension and insurance schemes listed by Nordlys are currently managed by PFA Pension, Velliv and Danske Sundhedsforsikring, according to the tender notice.Norlys said it currently has around 2,500 employees, and that the potential deposit value of the pension assets to be managed is estimated at DKK1bn (€134m) with average annual contributions of around DKK140m.The deadline for receipt of tenders is noon local time on 14 August 2020.Swiss pension fund issues notice for active equityA private pension fund in Switzerland has issued an active long equity volatility investing notice via IPE Quest Discovery.The size of the global active pooled portfolio is to be advised later in the selection process, it said.The pension fund is looking to build a long list of managers in this asset class that may then be selected to reply to a full request for proposals, it added.Interested managers should have a minimum track record of three years, the notice said.The IPE news team is unable to answer any further questions about IPE Quest, Discovery, or Innovation tender notices to protect the interests of clients conducting the search. To obtain information directly from IPE Quest, please contact Jayna Vishram on +44 (0) 20 3465 9330 or email [email protected] research foundation re-appoints NykreditDanmarks Grundforskningsfond (DG), the Danish National Research Foundation, has re-appointed Nykredit Asset Management for a DKK2bn (€267m) contract for the management of nominal Danish bonds.The foundation, which issued the initial tender notice on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), said the contract is for a five-year period.DG’s fixed income portfolio invests in government and mortgage bonds and constitutes the largest part of its assets – 37% of the strategic allocation is managed by Nykredit.According to its latest annual report, the Danish bond portfolio yielded a return of 1.8%, which was higher than the benchmark return of 1.7%. The predominance of mortgage bonds with lower coupon (0.5-2%) contributed positively to the excess return in relation to the benchmark.Although the yield spread on mortgage bonds was widened last year, this was more than compensated in the form of higher interest rates on mortgage bonds compared to government bonds and other non-callable bonds, it said.The strategic allocation to global index-linked bonds is worth 11% of its total portfolio and is managed by Danske Bank Asset Management. The portfolio’s return in 2019, the report showed, was 2.8% compared to a benchmark return at 2.6%.The return from the European credit bond portfolio in 2019 was 6.3% compared to the benchmark return of 6.4%. The strategic allocation to this part of the portfolio is 10% and the benchmark is Barclays Capital Euro Major Corporate Index. It is also run by Danske Bank AM.The US high yield bond portfolio accounts for 7% of the strategic allocation, and the portfolio is managed by Columbia Threadneedle. In 2019 it returned 12.7%, which is higher than the 10.7% its benchmark returned (ML US High Yield Bonds, Constrained hedged to DKK).The excess return is due to good securities selection, especially in the energy sector where there were many bankruptcies in 2019, the report explained.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine?

Rohit, Bumrah help India reach semis and eliminate Bangladesh

Posted on by

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyBIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) – India sailed into the Cricket World Cup semi-finals and eliminated opponents Bangladesh in the process after Rohit Sharma’s century and Jasprit Bumrah’s four-wicket haul secured a 28-run victory over their neighbours yesterday.Rohit smashed his fourth century of this year’s tournament and featured in a massive 180-run opening partnership with KL Rahul to help India to a commanding 314-9.Shakib Al Hasan struck a defiant 66 but the lack of partnerships hurt Bangladesh, who were all out for 286 in 48 overs with Bumrah (4-55) sealing the victory by claiming two wickets with the final two deliveries.India are now second with 13 points, one behind leaders Australia, while Bangladesh are seventh with seven points.“Bangladesh played some really good cricket and deserve credit for the fight they put up,” said India captain Virat Kohli. “We had to work hard for the win and we’re happy to see a Q (qualified) in front of our name now.”Earlier, Rohit combined with Rahul (77) for the highest opening partnership at this year’s tournament to give India a strong foundation after they elected to bat.Things could have been vastly different though had Tamim Iqbal not spilled Rohit, then on nine, at midwicket off Mustafizur Rahman who went on to return 5-59.Rohit capitalised on the reprieve to smash a 92-ball 104, equalling Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara’s record of four hundreds in a single World Cup, which earned him the man-of-the-match.The opener clobbered five of the seven sixes in the Indian innings, besides seven fours, and overtook Australian David Warner as the leading scorer at this tournament.Soumya Sarkar ended the ominous-looking partnership in the 30th over when Rohit mistimed his drive.Rahul joined him in the pavilion after bringing up his second half-century of this tournament.MIDDLE ORDER STRUGGLES Kohli made 26, his first sub-50 score in his last six innings, and India’s middle order again struggled to get going.Rishabh Pant, who made 48 off 41 balls, scored freely but India could not really capitalise on the fine start.Mahendra Singh Dhoni made 35 but once again failed to launch a late assault which could have taken India past the 350-mark which had looked well within their reach at one stage.India played two wicketkeepers – Pant and Dinesh Karthik – as specialist batsmen to beef up their misfiring middle order but the woes persisted.A strong start was imperative to chase down a 300-plus target and Bangladesh were understandably cautious as they embarked on trying to repeat their upset victory against India at the 2007 World Cup.Bhuvneshwar Kumar, returning from a hamstring injury, and Bumrah kept it tight up front but Mohammed Shami drew the first blood for India by dismissing Tamim for 22.Fellow opener Soumya Sarkar could not convert the start he got into a big innings either, hitting Hardik Pandya straight to Kohli at short extra cover to depart for 33.Shakib brought up his sixth 50-plus score at the tournament but wickets kept tumbling at the other end.Mohammad Saifuddin (51 not out) and Sabbir Rahman (36) forged the only 50-plus partnership in the Bangladesh innings but they never really threatened to pull off a difficult chase.“It was a good effort – Mustafizur bowled well – but if one of the batsmen could have got to 80 or 90 it might have been different,” Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said.“We were asking too much in the end. A bit of luck didn’t go our way either.”last_img read more
