Rabobank scheme invests €50m in Bouwinvest residential fund

first_imgRabobank Pension Fund said it invested in real estate because the asset class was expected to produce stable returns and had “good diversification potential in relation to other investments”.Property was also interesting as an inflation hedge, the fund said.Bouwinvest said its residential fund held around 15,000 high-quality rental homes, mainly in the liberalised sector, and that it aims to generate a sustainable annual return of 6%.Tenancy agreements in the Dutch private sector have been liberalised, allowing landlords more freedom in setting rents.Bouwinvest said the fund’s long-term strategy and active asset management had produced a well-spread, well-maintained portfolio with a high occupancy level.Bouwinvest’s chief executive Dick van Hal said: “The demand for medium-priced, liberalised rental housing in the Netherlands is considerably higher than the supply.”The liberalised rental sector is a particularly interesting investment for pension funds because it provides stable quarterly income, he said.The fund has no leverage and aims for a low-to-average risk profile. The €16.1bn Rabobank Pension Fund in the Netherlands is investing €50m in the Bouwinvest Dutch Institutional (BDI) Residential Fund, with the aim of stable and sustainable returns.The corporate pension fund said it opted for the Bouwinvest fund, which had assets under management of €2.6bn at the end of 2013, because the two funds shared an aim.Jos Dirks, Rabobank Pension Fund’s managing director, said: “We have the same objective, namely achieving a stable, sustainable return for pension fund participants.”Bouwinvest manages property investments for the Dutch construction industry’s pension fund (bpfBOUW) and opened its three largest real-estate funds to other institutional investors four years ago.last_img read more

​AP1 board criticises CEO Magnusson over travel expenses

first_imgMagnusson said of the board’s censure: “I have full understanding of the board’s criticism and would have chosen a different arrangement today.”The trip, which took place over four days, cost SEK9,922 per person, leading to a total bill of SEK476,276 for the fund, plus around SEK10,000 in other expenses including airport buses. Johan Magnusson, AP1AP1 said it had received quotes from two Swedish conference hotels before choosing Languedoc. Including travel costs, the domestic options were in the same price range overall as the French trip.Even though Magnusson had a home next to the conference centre, AP1 said he had no financial interests in the facility, and that he accounted for his own costs during the trip.Policy overhaulAt a regular meeting on 17 December, AP1’s board decided to instruct the CEO to map the extent of the fund’s trips and how they were implemented. The result would form the basis for an upcoming revision of the fund’s travel policy, applicable to employees, management and board members.“In connection with the revision of the travel policy, [AP1] will consider introducing a stricter approach to the choice of both flights and hotels,” Magnusson said.As well as the 2016 French trip, excursions to China and India in September 2016 and September 2018 respectively have come to light in the Swedish media.These trips, which the fund said were aimed at giving the supervisory and executive boards a better understanding of both places as countries and investment markets, cost SEK43,400 and SEK44,600 per person respectively, according to AP1.Intercontinental travel was carried out in business class while travel within the countries was made in economy class, the fund said, adding that this was in line with the fund’s existing travel rules. The chief executive of Sweden’s AP1 national pension fund has been criticised by its supervisory board for taking 48 staff to France for an internal conference.Johan Magnusson, CEO at the SEK338bn (€32.9bn) fund, organised an internal conference for 48 staff in October 2016 at a conference facility in Languedoc, France – near to where Magnusson owns a private flat.The Stockholm-based fund – one of the five buffer funds backing Sweden’s state pension – announced changes to its travel policy in the wake of recent media focus on expensive business-class trips to India and China taken by its supervisory and management board members.Urban Karlström, the chairman of AP1’s supervisory board, said: “The board sees great value in the fund’s employees gathering to plan and develop the business, but has expressed criticism about the location of the internal conference.”last_img read more

Before becoming the nation’s best receiving duo, Steve Ishmael and Ervin Philips became best friends

first_imgSteve Ishmael remembers meeting Ervin Philips during the summer before their freshman seasons. Then-head coach Scott Shafer called for a team meeting. The wide receiver from Florida recalls gravitating toward the then-running back from Connecticut.“Erv just has this little swagger to him,” Ishmael said. “I went up to him, said ‘What’s up’ and we just clicked after that.”Ishmael was immediately one of the top weapons for Syracuse during his freshman and sophomore seasons before having an underwhelming campaign a year ago, considering his expectations going in. While Ishmael thrived, Philips was shuffled around the field his first two seasons before breaking out as an inside receiver last year.Now, the two seniors are in the middle of career-best seasons as the two main weapons in the Orange’s (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) passing attack. The two don’t just lead SU in receptions, they lead the entire country. Philips recently set a school and ACC single-game record with 17 catches and Ishmael just tied SU’s record of five-straight games with 100 or more receiving yards. He’s already set a career high in receiving yards, before even reaching the halfway mark of this year.For all their production on the field, the two are also best friends off it. Head coach Dino Babers called them “an item,” and the duo isn’t shying away from filling their role as the team’s offensive leaders.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We talk about that every day,” Philips said during training camp. “We’ve been roommates for three years, so we talk about that all the time. That really doesn’t phase us.”Ishmael and Philips didn’t get to pick roommates their freshman year, but have lived together ever since. The two push each other to be better players on the field, but their competitive nature doesn’t just apply to football.Andy Mendes | Digital Design EditorThe two play video games against each other, Ishmael said, mainly the NBA 2K series. Ishmael said that he’s the better player and that the two keep a record of their games on a sheet of paper. As of training camp, Ishmael said that he was way ahead.“I’m killing him man,” Ishmael said. “Sometimes he’ll get me though. I keep it real, but I’m better than him for the most part.”Senior linebacker and two-time captain Zaire Franklin likened Ishmael and Philips to the wide receiver version of himself and fellow linebacker Parris Bennett. He met both receivers before starting at SU, going on his official visit with Ishmael.“Steve’s the most competitive person I ever met in my life,” Franklin said. “But Erv’s the only person that I guess can deal with that. Steve is very intense, especially when it comes to video games.”Their yin-yang personalities mirror their style of play, where the two get along just as well. Ishmael works the outside and relies on his size and strength, particularly in his hands, to reel in catches against smaller defensive backs. Philips relies on speed and quick bursts off the line to find openings in the middle of the field.Ishmael said he feels a different level of chemistry with Philips on the field than he does with any other receiver. The two will talk things out and can frequently be seen chatting before a play or on the sidelines. At home, Ishmael said they’ll vent about missed opportunities and plays they could have made to impact the last game they played.“We work off each other,” Phillips said after the North Carolina State game.The two started seriously discussing this season ever since they got back from winter break a year ago, Ishmael said. They texted each other during the time off, sharing their disappointment as they watched other teams play in bowl games they’ve only dreamed about.Both receivers have been adamant that they don’t care about the record-breaking numbers they’ve put up. The two friends look and sound very different, but they have one shared goal of leading Syracuse to a place this senior recruiting class has yet to experience: a bowl game.“It’s our senior year,” Ishmael said, “we really want to do this for the school and not for ourselves, but for the coaches, for the school, and just have a blast our senior year.“Just go out with a bang.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 5, 2017 at 7:20 pm Contact Tomer: tdlanger@syr.edu | @tomer_langerlast_img read more
