LAUNCH OF STUDY INTO CITY FIRM DIVERSITY

first_imgA POOR CONNECTIONOFCOM often talks about the demand for mobile spectrum (the waves your mobile phone uses to send data), telling us who should have it and why there isn’t enough. It could make even the best intentioned person drift off, but ears prick up when the amount raised by the last big spectrum auction is mentioned: £22.5bn.It exceeded everybody’s expectations and gave the government a vast war-chest. But the adviser on that deal, Rothschild, was understood to have walked away with a relatively modest sum. Rather than negotiating a percentage cut of the final figure, the investment bank agreed to accept a flat fee, thought to be low single digit millions. Rothschild rather diplomatically declined to comment yesterday.In the Parthenon of losers in the dotcom bubble, Rothschild is not a name that will be remembered. But we’d imagine that whoever is the adviser this time around will not agree to a flat fee. LAUNCH OF STUDY INTO CITY FIRM DIVERSITY whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp A LUCKY few got a sneak preview of Nomura’s brand new Angel Lane offices yesterday, as the bank played host to the launch of executive search firm Odgers Berndtson’s diversity study of 100 senior women in financial services. The women that Odgers recruited to take part represent 54 organisations with a combined turnover of over £500bn, and the guestlist for the evening reflected the high-profile contributors to the study. The study was introduced by Odgers chair Virginia Bottomley, with Standard Bank chief executive Jenny Knott also speaking in Nomura’s new Thames Suite, offering impressive views from the 11th floor of the new building.Charlotte Sweeney, Nomura’s head of diversity programme, told The Capitalist that the report should provide a useful reference for City firms reviewing their diversity strategies – particularly as it overlaps on several points with the Lord Davies report released last month. “Banks in particular have been focused on this for over a decade,” said Sweeney. “They need input for their continuous focus on development.”One thing is for certain, any macho types planning to ignore the City’s current drive for diversity risk being left behind if they don’t get on board. As Bottomley said: “Women will control 60 per cent of the UK’s private wealth by 2025, globally they are responsible for £13 trillion in consumer spending. Organisations will suffer unless they fully exploit the female talent in their midst.” Show Comments ▼ Monday 21 March 2011 8:24 pm Tags: NULL Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Todaylast_img read more

Warren Buffett has made a fortune for himself and his investors buying cheap shares. Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) shares are currently some of the cheapest on the London market.As such, I think it’s reasonable to suggest that Warren Buffett could be interested in buying part of the lender to add to his portfolio. Today I’m going to explain why. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A Warren Buffett investmentLloyds shares look cheap, but that’s not the only reason why I think the billionaire investor might be interested in the bank.In the past few years, he has spent billions of dollars buying shares in US banking giants. When he was asked why he liked bank stocks so much in an interview earlier this year, Buffett said: “The banks we own earn between 12% and 16% or so on net tangible assets. That’s a good business.” So, how does Lloyds compare to this target?Well, last year the bank earned an underlying return on tangible assets of 14.8%. By that logic, it seems as if the lender would qualify as a “good business,” according to Warren Buffett’s comments above. As well as being a good business, Lloyds shares also look cheap.They are currently changing hands at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 0.5. In comparison, some of the US lenders Buffett has been buying are trading at a P/B of 1 or more. This implies they are 50% more expensive. Lloyds shares on offerAll of the above suggests that Lloyds could qualify as a Warren Buffett investment.According to the billionaire’s own comments, the lender looks like a good business. It is also significantly cheaper than many of the other financial companies he has been buying for his portfolio recently. That being said, the outlook for Lloyds shares in the near term is highly uncertain. So, this might not be the best investment for short-term investors.The bank has warned that it may have to take billions of pounds of loan losses this year thanks to the coronavirus crisis. Low-interest rates could also weigh on profitability in the next few years. Still, from a long-term perspective, the lender could be a good investment at its current valuation. Lloyds shares have also provided substantial cash returns to investors in the past as the company has returned any excess profits to investors via dividends.When the current crisis is over, I reckon management will want to continue rewarding shareholders in this way. The bottom line All in all, I think Warren Buffett might be interested in Lloyds shares. As a long-term investment, the bank has a lot of potential, and today investors can snap up some shares in the group at a discount price.However, there’s a high chance the stock might fall further in the near term as economic uncertainty grows. I think investors should look past this and focus on the lender’s long-term potential.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

How a £100 weekly investment in UK shares can become a £1m ISA

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. With the State Pension age continuing to rise, investing in UK shares on a regular basis could significantly improve your long-term financial prospects.The growth outlook for the stock market continues to be relatively positive despite the recent stock market crash. Many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares with improving outlooks trade at low prices that could rise over the long run.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Therefore, now could be the right time to invest £100 per week, or any other amount, in a diverse range of British stocks. Over time, they could improve your retirement prospects and even lead to an ISA valued at £1m.Starting to buy UK shares earlyThe earlier you can start buying UK shares, the more time they will have to produce compound returns. For example, the FTSE 100 has returned around 8% per annum on a total return basis over recent decades. An 8% annual return in itself may not sound all that impressive. However, when it’s achieved every year for a prolonged period of time, it can add up to surprisingly large returns.For example, £100 per week invested in the FTSE 100 at 8% over a 10-year time period could end up being worth around £80,000. While that represents a significant sum of money, the same investment at the same rate of return could be worth as much as £1m over a 35-year time period. As such, the earlier you can start planning for retirement, the more chance there is of obtaining a large portfolio.Buying cheap stocksAs well as providing your portfolio of UK shares with a long period of time to grow, purchasing cheap stocks may improve your prospects of generating a large nest egg. A key reason for this is that the stock market has always posted strong gains in the years following its declines.For example, it surged to new record highs after downturns such as the dot com bubble and the global financial crisis. A similar outcome seems likely after the recent market crash.Therefore, now could be the right time to start building a diverse ISA portfolio of British stocks. Many high-quality companies are currently trading at prices that are significantly below their historic averages. This may mean they can deliver high returns that allow you to outperform the wider stock market.As a result, you may be able to build a £1m portfolio in a shorter amount of time than the 35 years given in the previous example.Of course, UK shares are likely to experience periods of uncertainty and high volatility in the short run. For example, Brexit and the US election could cause investor sentiment to change in the coming months.However, by taking a long-term view and maintaining your regular investment, you can enjoy financial freedom in older age via your generous ISA nest egg. How a £100 weekly investment in UK shares can become a £1m ISA I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

2 UK dividend stocks with 9% yields I’d buy today

first_img See all posts by Roland Head Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. There are a small handful of UK dividend stocks that offer yields of 9% or more. As an income investor searching for high yield, should I buy these for my portfolio?In general, when the market values an income-paying security so lowly, it often means that the payout is expected to fall. That’s a fair warning, but I feel that these shares could be exceptions to this rule.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I’m confident in this payoutTobacco stock Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) won’t score highly with ethical investors. But it’s a big, profitable business with determined new management. CEO Stefan Bomhard is doubling down on the group’s core tobacco business and cutting back spending on more speculative new products.This may sound like a backward strategy, given that global smoking rates have been falling for years. However, by controlling costs and maximising the value of brands such as JPS, West, and Gauloises, Bomhard believes he can deliver stable profits and modest dividend growth.City analysts who cover the stock seem to agree. The latest consensus forecasts show dividend growth averaging 3% per year between now and 2023. Forecasts can change, of course, depending on future developments, and can’t be relied on.Is this really a safe dividend stock?I think it’s safest to assume that the tobacco business will remain in decline. Rival BAT expects global sales to fall by 3% in 2021. This adds risk to Imperial shares, because it’s impossible to be sure how quickly smoking rates will fall.  This uncertainty makes it hard to value Imperial shares based on expected long-term earnings and dividends.I can also see some risk that new legal regulations could hit tobacco sales in developed markets, although I feel this is probably less of a concern.Imperial shares currently trade on six times forecast earnings and offer a 9.8% yield. Even with the risks involved, I think that’s cheap. I’d consider buying more of this UK dividend stock for my portfolio.This 9.3% yield tempts meThe second 9%-er I’m looking at today is asset management group M&G (LSE: MNG). This business was spun out of FTSE 100 insurer Prudential in 2019, but M&G has a 170-year history as a savings and investment business.It’s probably fair to say that M&G has not yet convinced investors that it can find a route to growth as a standalone business. Despite generating enough cash to support a generous dividend, the market doesn’t seem keen.This is reflected in M&G’s valuation on eight times 2021 forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of 9.3%. That’s cheaper than most UK-listed rivals.Like most of its peers, M&G saw fund outflows last year as investors withdrew money following the market crash. That’s fairly typical, but M&G doesn’t have the scale of some larger rivals.What’s needed, in my view, is one of two things. Either M&G must bulk up to achieve economies of scale, or it needs to develop a more distinctive niche role. The most likely targets I can see are the UK retail and wealth management sectors, where M&G’s well-known brand could work well.A dividend stock with a 9% yield will always come with some special risk or unusual circumstances. But I’d be happy to put my cash into M&G at current levels, as I believe the shares could perform well over the coming years. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

A passive income idea I’d start using with £100 a month

first_img Passive income is defined as income that’s not earned from working. There are many different types of passive income. For example, buy-to-let property income, book royalties, dividend income, and music royalties are all different passive income streams. They all have various benefits and drawbacks, and some may be more suitable for some investors than others. I believe investing in dividend shares is one of the easiest ways to generate a passive income. Unlike other strategies, such as buy-to-let, investors do not have to have a substantial lump sum to get started. Anyone can buy stocks and shares. Most online stockbrokers allow investors to get started with investment funds from as little as £50 a month. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Equity investing Of course, the strategy does have its drawbacks. Equity markets can be incredibly volatile, and there’s no guarantee an investor will receive any income at all. For example, in the first half of last year, many former dividend champions decided to eliminate their dividends to try and preserve cash in the pandemic. Investors who had been relying on these companies to provide a steady passive income received no compensation. However, while some companies eliminated their dividends, others didn’t. Some businesses have increased their distributions to investors over the past 12 months. I would focus on these companies to build a passive income portfolio with just £100 a month. These businesses might offer a lower dividend yield to investors at first, but I’m happy with this trade-off. I would rather accept a lower rate of return for the chance of more security than a higher rate of return and risk my money. Another way to reduce risk is to invest in equity funds. I think this would be the best strategy for me to invest £100 a month. While it’s possible to build a portfolio of single stocks with this level of funding, it would be difficult to build enough diversification, to begin with. Investing in a fund may allow me to invest in a basket of securities at the click of a button without having to worry about diversification. Passive income strategy One of my favourite income funds on the market at the moment is TB Evenlode Income. This fund owns a portfolio of blue-chip stocks such as Relx and GlaxoSmithKline. It supports a dividend yield of 3% at the time of writing. The minimum investment is £100 a month, making it the perfect fit for my monthly investment criteria. My figures suggest that after a year of investing £100 a month, this fund could be throwing off £36 worth of passive income per annum.After 10 years of this, assuming no income growth or capital growth, the annual passive income would be £400. That’s assuming all income is reinvested. By increasing deposits, it would be possible to increase this amount. This is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and there are plenty of risks associated with fund investing. The Neil Woodford debacle showed just how damaging fund investing could be to investors if the manager is not properly vetted. Investors also need to be aware of high fees and underperformance. It can be a mistake to concentrate purely on income and ignore these factors. But as a way to generate a passive income with minimal effort, I would still buy TB Evenlode Income.  The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Goff, suffragan, Diocese of Virginia (C066);Dorsey McConnell, Diocese of Pittsburgh (C091);A. Robert Hirschfeld, Diocese of New Hampshire (C098);W. Nicholas Knisely, Diocese of Rhode Island, (C102).The Rt. Rev. Neil Alexander, a committee co-chair, said he had been informed that the resolutions have been placed on the House of Deputies agenda and could be acted upon as early as July 6. Once the elections are approved by deputies, the House of Bishops will take up the measures.Retiring Bishop of New Hampshire Gene Robinson was among those who had testified on behalf of Hirschfeld.“I want to apologize to the Bishop-elect that this hearing won’t go for hours and be telecast worldwide,” Robinson said amid laughter, recalling his own controversial appearance in 2003 before the committee.Robinson said he is delighted with Hirschfeld’s selection “and the process which led to it,” adding that Hirschfeld, 51, was elected on the first ballot.“I could not be happier with this choice,” he added. “While it is a heartbreaking and grievous thing to contemplate leaving, I am leaving it (the diocese) with somebody I have already grown to love.”In presenting Bishop-elect Dorsey McConnell of Pittsburgh to the committee, the Very Rev. George Werner, former president of the House of Deputies and president of the diocesan standing committee, said the diocese is still in the process of healing after a 2008 split.But he said that McConnell’s election has been unifying, adding that “concern is being rightfully asked by this committee about property issues, about doctrine, discipline and worship and the bishop-elect is a leader already in the diocese and is definitely going to have no problems” adhering to church doctrine.Werner was referring to a request from bishops and deputies in the Diocese of Fort Worth, joined by the dioceses of San Joaquin and Quincy, “that none of these bishops-elect harbors the views expressed in the amicus brief recently filed against Fort Worth by seven bishops and three priests of this church … specifically whether he or she contends that dioceses have the unilateral and autonomous authority to leave the Church and take church property with them; and those views be published or otherwise communicated to both houses.”The request, published on the House of Bishops and Deputies talk list and confirmed by Fort Worth communications officer Katie Sherrod, was signed by the entire Fort Worth deputation.The committee, during early morning discussions, decided to generally ask the prospective bishops how they deal with differences. “The purpose of this committee is to check the process, the paper work and the canonical propriety for an election process,” co-chair Lynn Schmissrauter, a deputy from East Tennessee.“This is not an examining committee, this is a checking of the process. We want to be clear about that,” Schmissrauter said.In afternoon hearings, the committee also approved the consecrations of:Jeff Wright Fisher, suffragan, Diocese of Texas (C113)Douglas John Fisher, Diocese of Western Massachusetts (C103);Robert C. Wright, Diocese of Atlanta (C107);Jacob Wayne Owensby, Diocese of Western Louisiana (C072).At least four of the eight candidates were elected in dioceses in which they already served.Wright is the first African American to be elected bishop of Atlanta, and supporters testifying for him said that St. Paul’s Church in Atlanta had tripled in size since he became rector ten years ago, growing from 200 to 600 members.During his address to committee members Owensby said he had been born with a cleft palate that wasn’t corrected until he was in his twenties, which “gave me a heart for those who are left out.”Because the elections occurred within 120 days of the start of the 77th meeting of General Convention in Indianapolis July 4-12, Episcopal Church canons provide in Canon III.11.3 for the required consents to be sought from the bishops and deputies at convention.— The Rev.

The “public bar” is flanked on both ends with large sliding doors to achieve a powerful connection with the land anywhere you are in this section. The family room is a potent space in that incorporates the flexibility to be the most intimate and quiet space while also opening up to the community beyond. The master bedroom has the visual and visceral connection to the outdoors due to one entire wall comprising bi-folding doors that open onto a serene yard with fire and water elements.Save this picture!Courtesy of PLACEIn any project of consequence, there must be a collaboration of client, builder and designers—this project serves as a benchmark in my practice of the embodiment of this concept. While not being a particularly large house, the siting, scale & proportions, materials, details and craftsmanship are paramount.Save this picture!Courtesy of PLACEProject gallerySee allShow lessCabinet of Curiosities / Phil Redmond Architecture + UrbanismSelected ProjectsThe Chicago Tribune Tower Might Have a New Neighbor: The City’s Second-Tallest Skysc…Architecture News Share Save this picture!Courtesy of PLACE+ 22Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this officePLACEOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta BarbaraUnited StatesPublished on April 24, 2018Cite: “Glendessary Lane / PLACE” 24 Apr 2018.

The bill applies to all kinds of media, including online media.“This bill, which is still pending examination, is both questionable and inopportune,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It would hold the media systematically responsible before the civil courts, not only for the facts they report but also for the views that are expressed through them, often by outside contributors, and which they do not necessarily share.”The press freedom organisation added: “The bodes ill for the future of public debate and comes at a time when media critical of the government are being subjected to a great deal of pressure. The adoption of this law would exacerbate an already unfavourable situation.”Presented to parliament by Mercedes Cabanillas, a former interior minister who now chairs parliament’s constitutional commission, proposed law 2971/2008-CR aims to guarantee “the right to a correction for anyone affected by inaccurate or insulting statements in the print, broadcast or electronic media.”It would apply not only to the allegation of facts deemed to be defamatory, but also to opinions. Writing in the daily La República, human rights lawyer Alejandro Godoy noted that President Alan García recently complained about the criticism he was receiving in many blogs. The bill stipulates that if a correction to a contentious statement is demanded within seven days, the correction must be printed, posted or broadcast within the following three days, instead of ten days as the law currently stands.The National Association of Journalists (ANP) has reacted angrily to the controversial bill, saying it “reinforces a tacit desire by the political class to silence all forms of journalistic criticism and opinion by means of legislative changes.” The ANP statement mentions two media in Amazonas department that have been targeted by the authorities since an outbreak of indigenous unrest in June.One, Radio Oriente, is under constant surveillance. The other a radio station called La Voz de Bagua Grande, was closed down in an entirely illegal manner. Reporters Without Borders has urged the government to allow it to reopen but it requests have received no answer. News News to go furtherlast_img read more

Satisfaction at choice of Cheng Yizhong for UNESCO press freedom award

first_img Reporters Without Borders voiced “immense satisfaction” today at the news that Chinese journalist Cheng Yizhong is to be awarded the 2005 UNESCO/Guillermo Cano press freedom prize, and it seized the occasion to reiterate its call for the release of Yu Huafeng and Li Minying, two of Cheng’s colleagues who are still in prison.”This award is an important mark of recognition for the investigative journalism of which Cheng Yizhong is emblematic and it will encourage all journalists in a country where press freedom is constantly flouted,” the organization said.Reporters Without Borders added: “We hope it will also facilitate the release of the two journalists from the Nanfang Dushi Bao daily newspaper, which Cheng used to edit.”Cheng showed courage and professionalism by publishing sensitive articles in the liberal daily he edited. A series of investigative reports about the SARS epidemic and the case of a young graphic artist, Sun Zhigang, who was beaten to death in a Guangzhou police station, led to his arrest on 20 March 2004. He was freed after five months in custody but his two colleagues, Yu and Li, who were arrested at the same time, are still being held.

The apex court granted 3 days to all parties to file a reply and sought an update from the State of Maharashtra on the Investigation done by Mumbai Police.One of the petitioners before Bombay High Court is Sameet Thakkar, a 32-year-old businessman who alleges that high profile powerful people with political and underworld connections are involved in this case. Whereas the other petitioner is a lawyer, Priyanka Tibrewal, who practises in the Calcutta High Court.Responding to Tibrewal’s allegation that the case is sensational in nature and there are lot of unanswered questions, AG Ashutosh Kumbhakoni refuted the allegations saying there was nothing sensational in the case-“It is just being made sensational, and the state has not received copies of either of the pleas.”Thereafter, Court directed the petitioners to serve copies of the respective PILs with all parties concerned and adjourned the hearing till Friday.Following the actor’s death, Mumbai Police had registered an Accidental Death Report (ADR) and an investigation is still underway in the case.While Tibrewal sought directions for the constitution of a Special Investigation Team of the CBI to probe the case and that the probe be monitored by the High Court, Thakker’s plea seeks constitution of an SIT or transfer of probe to CBI. Tibrewal contended that “the Mumbai Police created a narrative of suicide” in the actor’s case without adequately investigating it-“The sudden death of a very successful person has created ripples in the minds of the public at large about the intricacies of nepotism prevalent in the film industry.The incident has national and international ramifications to such a grave extent that an order for constituting an SIT of the CBI is necessary for ensuring transparency and justice,” On the other hand, Thakker’s plea alleges that the way in which Mumbai police is conducting the investigation in the present matter, it is clearly evident that there is a deliberate attempt to delay and prolong the investigation, as consequence of which the crucial and material evidence will be compromised.
