This is the second time LD has put out its equity mandates to international competitive tender, with a total of DKK14bn of mandates being awarded this time.LD said today’s portfolio managers actively drew on information from risk managers when making their daily decisions, with risk management having become a strategic discipline.They are not afraid of risk, it said, but rather do not want to be surprised by unknown risks.Anderskouw said equity managers had taken serious account of the wishes of LD customers in the tender.“This is true not only on the risk side but also in areas such as responsible investment practice,” she said.“And it is particularly good to see that equities managers have revised their own bonuses.”She added that the managers were now putting the emphasis on sustainable returns.Earlier this month, MFS Investment Management and Fisher Investments won a global equities mandate and an emerging markets mandate from LD.In March, Carnegie Asset Management and Impax Asset Management won mandates for Danish equities and environment and climate, respectively.LD manages assets of around DKK53.3bn.In other news, Nordic and Baltic banking group Nordea said it reaped a DKK3.5bn gain from selling its stake in Nordic financial payments provider Nets, as ATP’s consortium completed its DKK17bn purchase of the firm.The consortium – comprising Danish pensions giant ATP and private equity firms Advent International and Bain Capital – announced the completion of the acquisition following approval from Danish, Norwegian, Finnish and EU regulatory authorities.Nordea said it was selling its 20.7% stake in Nets Holding to the consortium, gaining DKK3.5bn.Before the completion of the deal, Nets was owned by more than 180 separate banks.ATP and its joint venture partners announced the all-cash private equity investment deal in March.John Helmsøe-Zinck, managing partner at Via Venture Partners – the management company for ATP’s IT investments and a board member of Nets – said the company would now have the financial resources and operational expertise to make the big investment necessary to make sure it remained a market leader.“We are committed to accelerating the company’s growth and enabling the company to strengthen its international position,” he said. Denmark’s Lønmodtagernes Dyrtidsfond (LD) has praised the asset management sector, saying it found a higher quality of investment work and risk management when it conducted the pension fund’s latest DKK14bn (€1.9bn) round of equities outsourcing.Bente Anderskouv, head of equities at LD, said: “There are many particularly skilled equities managers throughout the world, and the most capable have even increased the quality of their investment work over the last few years.”LD, which manages a non-contributory pension scheme for Danes, based on cost-of-living allowances for workers granted in 1980, has recently awarded four equity mandates as part of an exercise to renew the outsourcing of most of its asset management.Anderskouv has spent more than a year working first on establishing LD’s equity strategy and then on the selection of the equity managers the pension fund would work with in future, LD said.
BusinessHealthInternationalLifestylePrint Commercial flight crews show higher cancer rates — study by: – June 27, 2018 Sharing is caring! Share 29 Views no discussions PARIS, France (AFP) — Flight crews have higher than average rates of certain cancers, according to a study of more than 5,000 US-based flight attendants.“We report a higher lifetime prevalence of breast, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers among flight crews relative to the general population,” said Irina Mordukhovich, a researcher at Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health and co-author of a study published Tuesday in the journal Environmental Health.“This is striking given the low rates of overweight and smoking in this occupational group,” she said in a statement.Out of 5,366 flight attendants who took part in the study, just over 15 per cent reported ever having been diagnosed with cancer.Taking age into account, the study found a higher prevalence of cancer in flight crew for every type of cancer examined.Some 3.4 per cent of the women who flew for a living had breast cancer, compared to 2.3 per cent in the general population.The flight-crew rate was 0.15 per cent compared to 0.13 per cent for uterine cancer; 1.0 compared to 0.70 per cent for cervical cancer; 0.47 compared to 0.27 per cent for stomach or colon cancer; and 0.67 compared to 0.56 per cent for thyroid cancer.The risk of breast cancer was higher in women who had never had children, as well as those who had three or more.Having no children was a known risk factor, noted Mordukhovich.“But we were surprised to replicate a recent finding that exposure to work as a flight attendant was related to breast cancer exclusively among women with three or more children,” she said.“This may be due to combined sources of circadian rhythm disruption — sleep deprivation and irregular schedules — both at home and at work.”Male flight attendants were found to have higher rates of skin cancer — 1.2 and 3.2 per cent for melanoma and non-melanoma cancer, respectively, compared to 0.69 and 2.9 per cent for the adult population as a whole.This was especially true if the attendants working before smoking on planes was banned in the United States, in 1998.Flight crews are routinely exposed to known and probable carcinogens, including cosmic radiation from space, circadian rhythm disruption, and possible chemical contaminants.The authors used 2013-14 data from the Flight Attendant Health Study, which has been tracking the health of selected flight crew since 2007.This was compared to data from 23,729 men and women with similar economic status who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination survey during the same years.

A motorist had a lucky escape after their vehicle was almost swept out to sea after getting stuck on the popular Rossnowlagh beach earlier this afternoon.The motorist from Northern Ireland was caught out by the volatile tides on Rossnowlagh which is has now become a notorious hazard for drivers who park on the beach.Over the last number of years other drivers have been left stuck on the beach and locals have appealed for visitors to stop parking on the beach to alleviate the on-going issue. However, the tide coming in quickly wasn’t the issue today unlike in previous years.The engine of the VW car cut out and the motorist couldn’t get it started.As the tide moved in the motorist was helped by locals who battled tirelessly to get the car off the strand.Eventually the community effort ensured the vehicle got off the beach before it was swallowed by the waves. At one stage the Sligo 118 Rescue chopper swooped overhead as the rescue operation took place.Thankfully the car was removed in time and a releived motorist admitted they’ll think twice about parking on a beach from now on.DRIVER LEFT ALL AT SEA AFTER GETTING STRANDED ON BEACH was last modified: April 8th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:FeaturesMotoristnewsrossnowlagh beachStrandedvehicle
