Brussels to ‘limit’ prescription in Shareholder Rights Directive

first_imgThe Shareholder Rights Directive will not result in an endless list of disclosures with which to comply but rather seek to limit the amount of prescription required, according to a senior European Commission figure.Jeroen Hooijer, head of the corporate governance and social responsibility unit, also stressed that the directive’s most important role would be to bring clarity to the investment chain.He added that a 2012 report by UK academic John Kay had been very influential in Brussels.Hooijer, speaking at a conference organised by the UK’s National Association of Pension Funds, also stressed that he was keen to strike a balance between principles-based guidance, such as the UK Stewardship Code, and prescriptive regulation. “The transparency requirements should not only be principles-based – or very high-level principles that show us how you engage, or be transparent about what your strategy is,” he said. “We have to go down to a certain level of prescription but be careful not to end up in an endless list of little things you have to show in your report – because then you get these reports of dozens and hundreds of pages.”His comments came after a speech by Win Bischoff, chairman of the Financial Reporting Council, who said that while the UK body supported the Commission’s work on stewardship, it was concerned about the potential level of prescription.“We don’t believe owners should be compelled to adopt any one particular approach to stewardship,” Bischoff said. “If it’s forced on them, it will only create more work for advisers and intermediaries.”However, the former Lloyds Banking Group chairman warned that asset owners needed to scrutinise asset managers’ stewardship activities if they wished to maintain the principles-based, ‘comply or explain’ approach of the Stewardship Code.“If our principles-based system is found wanting, we will only have ourselves to blame if European legislation takes its place,” he said. Bischoff also expressed reservation’s about Hooijer’s unit moving away from the single market commission to fall under the directorate general Justice (DG Justice) as a result of Jean-Claude Juncker’s reorganisation of Commission portfolios.He said he hoped DG Justice would have contact with Jonathan Hill, the UK commissioner appointed to the financial services brief, “rather than trying to reinvent [the Directive]”.Bischoff said there was a risk the new home for the Directive meant there was a “danger of [it] being prescriptive”.“I really hope and I do expect there to be a dialogue, rather than Justice going off on its own,” he said. “The more our own system of principles-based works, the more people will sign up – we’ve only got ourselves to blame, or partially ourselves to blame, if it works the other way.”last_img read more

Power to stay in Ireland

first_img Eddie Lynam’s globetrotting star last ran in Ireland in the Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh when second to Amour Propre. He also had the option of the Temple Stakes at Haydock, a race he won in 2011, on the same day, but Irish fans will now get the chance to see one of their great performers. Sole Power will have his first run on home soil since August 2011 in the Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh on Saturday. Press Associationcenter_img What also worked in the Curragh’s favour is that regular rider Richard Hughes is in Ireland this weekend to ride Ivawood in the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas. Lynam told the Irish Herald: “We want to run this weekend. “The ground at the Curragh is good to yielding and I am happy with that. (We’re also) keen to run in Ireland after so long.” Sole Power has taken his connections all around the world and Paddy Power, spokesman for the bookmakers of the same name whose parents own the sprinter, said: “We decided this weekend the best option was to run at the Curragh, “We’d spoken to somebody who walked the track at Haydock and the ground is just a bit softer there so it’s going to be more suitable at the Curragh. “Richard Hughes will be at the Curragh, too.” last_img read more

Andy Murray is hungry for more glory after his historic triumph at Wimbledon

first_imgIf he was not such a committed and down-to-earth sportsman, you could imagine that fame might have started to turn Andy Murray’s head by the time he set out last night for a celebratory evening meal with his entourage at Nobu in London’s West End.Having completed a large round of media interviews, the new Wimbledon champion had spent the afternoon taking tea in Downing Street with David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. Earlier in the day the Prime Minister, when talking about Murray’s suitability for a knighthood, said: ‘I can’t think of anyone who deserves one more.’Murray, nevertheless, has never shown any inclination to be distracted by fame or fortune. He is now planning a short holiday, after which he will be back on the court preparing for his next tournament, the Montreal Masters, which begins in four weeks’ time. He will start his training for the north American hard-court season – and the defence of his US Open title – in his second home of Miami, where his coach, Ivan Lendl, can be relied on to ensure that his charge has not gone soft.“I don’t know exactly how I am going to respond when I get back on the practice court, but the people around you can help a lot with that,” Murray said yesterday during a return visit to the scene of his triumph the previous day. The Scot looked in surprisingly good shape given that he had had just one hour’s sleep following a late night out at the Wimbledon Champions’ Dinner and an early-morning start.“I know in Ivan’s head that he is not content with how the last 18 months have gone. He will think I could have won the Australian Open this year and to get me ready for the US Open he will train me really hard over in Miami.“I think that is huge having somebody like that in your corner. He was the ultimate competitor as a player and he loved winning. His consistency was amazing. He made eight consecutive US Open finals and there was no let-down for him. I hope having him in my corner will help out a lot.” Murray added: “I hope I don’t lose hunger. I think I should be able to use this as motivation. I know what it’s like to lose in a Wimbledon final and I know what it is like winning one. It’s a lot better winning, so the hard work is worth it.“I’ve just got to make sure I don’t get side-tracked by anything and that after the next few days – enjoying and celebrating – I’ll go away, rest up and get ready for the US Open. I’ve never had to defend a Grand Slam before. That will be a new experience for me and I’ll look forward to that.”last_img read more
