UK pensions industry bemoans lack of clarity on DC reforms

first_imgRuston Smith, chairman at the NAPF, said while there was no denying that the reforms were an “exciting and compelling” proposition for savers, the industry was beside itself as the deadline approached.“April is not far away,” he told delegates at this year’s NAPF Annual Conference in Liverpool.“The problem is, we do not know enough about the detail. This lack of detail and lack of clarity is severely limiting our opportunity to get things right for members – and it is increasing the risk of failure.”He said, with 4.2m savers eligible to take advantage of the reforms come April, products and legislation were still unprepared.The UK’s DC market has long supported the insurance annuity business, but concerns have grown over the value for money offered by insurers.Savers are now expected to look for more income-drawdown products, or to withdraw their DC savings entirely as cash.“These people will expect these products to work and expect us to help them make the right choice,” Smith said.“The government has set high expectations for the industry to respond positively and innovatively. But it is closing down the time we have to make this a real success.“I say to the government, help us to give freedom and choice and not fear and confusion. Give us the clarity we need to make this a success.”Speaking later at the conference, Labour MP Gregg McClymont, the opposition’s spokesman on pensions, said while his party understood it was “politically difficult” to speak out against the reforms, the party did in principle support greater freedom.However, his personal misgivings over the reforms were that it did not fix the main criticism placed on insurers or the UK annuity market.“There are good political reasons for [the reforms],” he said. “It is possible to work with [the government] on the reforms, while defending pensions as a concept.”McClymont said that, while the annuities market did need reform, the criticisms were based on DC savers never seeking out the right arrangement.He said he failed to understand how giving DC savers more choice was going to solve the situation. Industry figures and opposition politicians have condemned the lack of clarity from the UK government over fast-approaching reforms to the defined contribution (DC) at-retirement model.Reforms are set to go into effect in April 2015, just over a year after they were announced as part of chancellor George Osborne’s 2014 Budget.The ‘Freedom and Choice’ proposals, which removed the need for compulsory annuitisation, were welcomed by the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) and unchallenged by the opposition party.However, pressure for more detail is now mounting.last_img read more

Carrick hails ‘sharp’ Rooney

first_imgManchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes Wayne Rooney is hungry for success. It is not a milestone the 27-year-old can achieve this season. However, in his present form, Carrick knows Rooney can cause some serious damage. “It was as good as I’ve seen him for a while,” said the England midfielder. “He looked sharp and he looked hungry. “His movement and touch was all there and he showed exactly what a player he is. “It’s great to have him in that kind of form.” There was never any real doubt once United dug their heels in over the prospect of Rooney joining Chelsea this summer that he would still try to perform at his best for his current employers. But whilst there has been talk of a new contract for the former Everton player, who now has less than two years remaining on his present deal, the situation is anything but straightforward. Rooney became only the fourth player in United history to reach 200 goals for the club when he scored twice in Tuesday night’s 4-2 Champions League win over Bayer Leverkusen. Manager David Moyes has already set Rooney the target of netting the additional 49 goals needed to join Sir Bobby Charlton at the top of the club’s scoring charts. Rooney’s reaction to being asked about his future on live TV immediately after Tuesday night’s game was to dismiss the question rather forcibly. As was the situation throughout the summer, it is Rooney’s refusal to address the matter, or confirm his willingness to remain at Old Trafford, that fuels even more speculation. His contract has to be addressed at some point too, and only then will there be any clue as to his real long-term thinking. For now though, manager Moyes is just glad to have him around. “I introduced him into the team at Everton, so I knew exactly what we were dealing with as a player,” he said. “To surpass Sir Bobby would be something because everyone respects him.” Between them, Rooney and Robin van Persie have now scored nine goals this season, a figure United will hope rises at Manchester City on Sunday. “It is a bit of a dying thing now to see two forwards playing together,” said Moyes. “But the two of them are capable of scoring all kinds of goals and hopefully we are able to use it.” What is inarguable is that Rooney was a clear man of the match in United’s best all-round performance of the season. New-boy Marouane Fellaini impressed in the tidy manner of his work, with Carrick seeing his midfield partner as a valuable addition to the United squad. “It was good to play with him,” said Carrick. “He is a real presence in there. He is such a dominant player and gives us something that we haven’t had. “You want options in the squad. There’s no point in having similar players.” For all that, it is difficult to see Moyes’ starting line-up changing too much for Sunday’s Premier League trip to Manchester City. Although it is 2010 since Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand last played together over three games in one week, with Phil Jones still not recovered from an ankle injury and neither Chris Smalling nor Jonny Evans featuring at all in a central position this season, it is impossible to envisage the veteran pair being split up. Similarly, Van Persie and Rooney are automatic starters, as Carrick and Fellaini appear to be so the only question seems to revolve around the potential for Ryan Giggs replacing Shinji Kagawa as Danny Welbeck is not due to test the knee injury he suffered in training until Thursday. After a tricky start to the campaign, a repeat of last season’s win at the Etihad Stadium would take United on to 10 points from those tough opening five matches, a more than acceptable return. The bonus is United head across town on the same number of points as their rivals, who have also taken some time adjusting to their new manager. “We’ve had a stop-start beginning to the season and people have been asking questions as normal,” said Carrick. “But the games against City are the ones you want to be involved in. “It will be very intense and the atmosphere will be great. “But we also know these big games can be won and lost on the finest of margins as we saw last year when a deflected free-kick won it for us. “Hopefully it will be the same outcome this year.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Backers say House bill addresses labyrinth of gun restrictions

first_imgDES MOINES — Republicans in the Iowa House have passed a bill that would force any Iowa city or county with gun restrictions in a government-owned building to screen people at entrances and have an armed guard inside.Representative Steven Holt, a Republican from Denison, said it will help ensure Iowans have the right to self defense. “It is also about the health and safety of our children and our families,” Holt said. “It is about my right as a parent to be prepared to defend my wife and my children — my family.”The bill would override opinions from the state’s attorney general in 2003 and 2010 that indicated cities and counties could pass resolutions that create gun-free zones.“I have never understood why someone believes that a gun-free zone will make them safer. In reality, a gun-free zone without screening and security will never stop a sick individual from killing innocent people,” Holt said. “It will stop the law-abiding citizen from carrying protection.”Representative Mary Gaskill, a Democrat from Ottumwa who voted against the bill, suggested that if it becomes law, Iowans with a permit will be able to carry guns into most any city or county-owned building in the state.“With the addition of metal detectors and armed security, few entities to pay for these measures,” Gaskill said.Representative Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, a Democrat from Ames, said it would cost more than $400,000 to staff metal detectors and have armed security at the Story County courthouse.“This is an irresponsible use of taxpayer dollars,” she said. “…The constitutional right to own a firearm comes with important responsibility regarding community safety and therefore it must come with conditions.”Supporters of the bill say Iowa gun owners should not have to navigate a labyrinth of different ordinances. The bill also forbids cities and counties from trying to ban gun modifications or from establishing restrictive zoning aimed at gun shooting ranges.The House passed the bill on a 52 to 44 vote as dozens of gun rights activists sat in the gallery watching the debate.last_img read more

Hurting Draxler hopes ‘egos’ can fire PSG in Europe

first_img“It’s two-and-a-half years now since I arrived and I won a lot of (domestic) titles so I am happy about that,” he said.“I became a better player than I was before, so that’s positive, but what is negative is what we achieved in the Champions League.“We did not go far in the Champions League and that was one of the goals when I signed.”Bankrolled by Qatari money and coached by Draxler’s fellow German Thomas Tuchel, PSG went out in the last 16 of the Champions League after conceding a late goal home to an injury-hit Manchester United.“It hurts a lot, it hurts still that we did not go through,” said Draxler, five months on.“But from the potential in the team, we are ready to go far in the Champions League.”Draxler was linked over the summer with Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen and Tottenham Hotspur, but he made it clear that he is focused only on showing PSG what he can do.He said that he has “space to improve — a lot”.“I am almost 26 and I think the best years of my career are coming now, I hope so.“Now I am a good age: I have experience but I am still young,” he added.“Hopefully the fans and the club will see the best version of Julian in the next season.”Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: PSG’s Neymar and MbappeSuzhou, China | AFP | Midfielder Julian Draxler said Monday that the single-minded “egos” of Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain’s other star forwards did not always make it easy for the team.And the German World Cup winner told AFP in an interview in China that he was still hurting from the French club’s failure to go farther in the Champions League last season.PSG play Sydney FC in a friendly on Tuesday in Suzhou, China, but Draxler already has his mind on what promises to be another big season for the club and him personally.Draxler, part of Germany’s 2014 World Cup-winning squad, said it was “a pleasure” to play with the attacking triumvirate of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe — even though it has its challenges.The Brazilian star Neymar, who is in China but will not be involved in the match as he works his way towards full fitness, has made clear that he wants to return to Barcelona.“All of them are exceptional players, it is hard to find in the world players of this level,” said Draxler, who arrived in the French capital in January 2017 for a reported 36 million euros from Wolfsburg.“But of course they have their own minds, their own heads, they live football, they want to score every game, so they have an ego.“So sometimes it’s not easy for the whole team, but if you are lucky enough to play alongside these players, it’s just a pleasure every day.”Like Neymar, Draxler — who has more than 50 caps for Germany — has been linked with a move away from the perennial French champions, having been in and out of the starting XI.Asked how he would summarise his time in France so far, Draxler blew out his cheeks and paused.– ‘Hurts a lot’ –last_img read more
