Social Media Round-up 2018-19 Season: Week Two

Posted on by

first_imgAs someone spotted on social media, Scarlets hooker Ken Owens couldn’t get away quick enough when filming this short celebration promo for their Twitter page! Brilliant.So that’s Round Two. Bring on next week’s action! Manu Tuilagi storming back into formIt had been a tough week for Leicester Tigers after they were demolished by Exeter Chiefs in Round One of the Gallagher Premiership, and then parted ways with boss Matt O’Connor. Interim coach Geordan Murphy demanded more from his players… and he got it at the weekend as the Tigers fans were treated to a high-scoring, action-packed 49-33 win over Newcastle Falcons.Defences were not on top, as they say. But it was a stirring bounce back for the famous club. And perhaps as pleasing as the win will be the re-emergence of one powerful man. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. After years of injury struggle, some may have been beginning to forget just how much punch the England centre can pack. But as he ran the in-line here and took a short ball, we caught a glimpse of the Tuilagi of old. And then he opened up.It was a moment that just clicked for Tigers. After the game, fly-half George Ford said: “We’ve probably been paying (Manu) a bit of a disservice the way we’ve been playing him; telling him to run into brick walls all the time.” As you can see, when he is given the right pass in the right place, he detonates defences.Of course, one player showed us last week that good passes can lead to tries before defenders even know what’s going on. You remember Gloucester ten Danny Cipriani’s wonder pass last week, right? Well he was at it again, this time in the West Country derby with Bath. You don’t get more clear cut than this.However, there was a red card dished out at the weekend which has plenty of fans and pundits arguing the toss. Early in the second half of Bristol’s match against reigning Premiership champions Saracens, legendary back-rower George Smith received a straight red card for a high shot on Jackson Wray.Some have come out to say the red was harsh. From Manu Tuilagi’s barnstorming return to a family haka and violence in the Top 14 – we wrap up what’s been happening on Twitter this weekend The game ended in an enthralling 31-all draw. There are always tantalising moments when these famous rivals meet and there were a few nice sub-plots this time too – former Bath stalwart Matt Banahan scoring against his old club  stands out – but this pass was worth highlighting (again and again). Cipriani has started very well at Gloucester.Related: Watch Marcus Smith make two try-saving tacklesOf course not all of the rugby at the weekend was a spectacle of hard but fair contest. This moment of brutality from Mathieu Bastareaud has drawn the ire of rugby fans all over. Smashing return: Manu Tuilagi scores against Newcastle Falcons If you saw the incident and agree with Tom Shanklin, or see things slightly differently let us know. Either Tweet us, or why not send us an email at [email protected]?You could also let us know what you think about this. This is footage of Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi’s family performing  a personal haka for the half-back following his debut for the all Blacks at the weekend. What a moment for the young man.And finally, we have a (really) quick one here.last_img read more

Austrian Pensionskassen association pushes for sustainable investments

Posted on by

first_imgA privileged tax treatment for employee contributions has been demand of politicians for years, in order to make the pension fund instrument more attractive to savers, Michaela Plank, principal and member of the country leadership team at Mercer Austria, told IPE.“The link [of tax deductions] with sustainable investments is welcomed, especially since pension funds cannot deny the topic of sustainability in the future,” she said.A recent Fachverband survey revealed that Pensionskassen in Austria already invest €15bn sustainably, based on the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment.This represents 61.5% of Pensionskassen’s total investments volume.“The topic of sustainability has already been included by all multi-employer pension providers, at least in their strategy,” Plank said, noting that, however, the access to sustainable investments is currently not regulated, meaning that each pension fund sets its own priorities.For this reason, Plank added, it is necessary to define “uniform regulations” both at the local level and in line with the requirements of the European Union to build a foundation for domestic Pensionskassen to compete internationally. “Our request to the government would be that everyone who pays for a green supplementary pension can deduct it from tax”Andreas Zakostelsky, chair of the Fachverband der PensionskassenResponsible investments rose by 10% in 2019 to €1.7trn in Germany and in Austria, according to research by Forum Nachhaltige Geldanlagen (FNG), the industry association promoting sustainable investment in the DACH region.But in Austria only 17% of asset owners and fund managers surveyed said they pursue impact approaches.“We are seeing increased interest in implementing ESG policies in the investment process, but it would be preferable that all investors view ESG as the standard and focus on the topic of “transformation” and “what impact do I achieve”,” Angelika Delen, head of investment consulting at Mercer, added.Returns from capital deployed in sustainable investments can be attractive from the point of view of investors, especially at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic pushes to rethink business models and growth.“Sustainable investment does not automatically mean higher returns, but they are, meanwhile, at least equivalent, and often more profitable in the long term, as they focus on future-oriented industries,” Zakostelsky said.Andreas Wimmer, senior group managing director at the CQ Investment Group, told IPE that asset managers at the group generally support measures to make sustainable investments available for a larger number of potential investors.The inclusion of sustainable investments within a scheme’s portfolio “should further help to establish common standards and transparency in the industry,” he continued.“In this regard, we think it would be helpful to implement the proposal [of the green supplementary pension] on a voluntary basis,” he added.Returns from sustainable investments have been competitive compared to traditional investments, he said.“We think it could be in the interest of pension funds to increase their allocation in this segment,” he concluded.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here. The Fachverband der Pensionskassen, Austria’s occupational pension fund association, has floated the idea of a “green supplementary pension” to push pension funds torwards sustainable investments.“We are convinced that this measure would increase the proportion of sustainably invested capital to more than 75% by 2025,” Andreas Zakostelsky, chair of the Fachverband, told IPE.The basic idea behind the “green supplementary pension” is that pension funds create pots with tax-deductible contributions dedicated only for sustainable forms of investment.“Our request to the government would be that everyone who pays for a green supplementary pension can deduct it from tax,” Zakostelsky said.last_img read more
