Dutch schemes must increase transparency on appointments, outsourcing

first_imgThe researchers noted that schemes have already applied a large number of the norms, including providing insight into costs, policy choices, risk management and board performance.However, pension funds hardly gave information on agreements with providers, remuneration policy or arrangements for whisteblowers, they said. The same went for the regular evaluation of actuary and accountant.Ecorys also found that the most annual reports were also not clear about the procedure for the appointment of trustees and members of the supervisory board, and lacked clarity about the role of the scheme’s board and other organs within the pension fund for appointments.In the opinion of the monitoring committee, most pension funds were inadequate in indicating the current diversity of representation, or how they intended to improve any imbalance.The researchers further noted that many pension funds failed to provide a clear definition of some standards, and also recommended including reports of, for example, their accountability organ and their compliance officer in their annual report.The code is meant to improve governance, and has legal been underpinned by legislation since 1 July 2014.The code has succeeded the principles for proper pension fund governance, which were formulated by the StAr in 2005.For more on pensions in the Netherlands, see the upcoming March issue of IPE Pension funds must provide more information about outsourcing and procedures for appointments in their annual report, the monitoring committee for the code for pension funds has indicated.In its first evaluation of the application of the code, which came into force in 2014 after a joint effort by the Pension Federation and the Labour Foundation (StAr), the committee also suggested that schemes should give more clarity on subjects such as the suitability of board members and diversity of representation.The committee has drawn its conclusions on the findings of research bureau Ecorys, which had checked 222 annual reports over 2013 for 34 of the 83 standards of the protocol.The committee’s zero measurement focused on whether and how pension funds are dealing with the themes, it said.last_img read more

Euro 2020 Qualifiers: Mkhitaryan scores twice as Armenia stun Bosnia

first_imgRelatedPosts Two Nigerian students detained in Bosnia leave for Nigeria Bosnia coach changes mind on resignation, stays in charge Euro 2020: Prosinecki resigns as Bosnia coach after Armenia debacle Armenia captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored twice as Armenia stunned Bosnia with a dramatic 4-2 win in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Sunday, prompting the resignation of Bosnia’s coach Robert Prosinecki. The win lifted Armenia above Bosnia in Group J as they moved into third place with nine points, three behind Finland, while Bosnia are fourth with seven. The top two qualify for next year’s tournament although Bosnia could also qualify through the Nations League playoffs after winning their group in that competition. “I was very optimistic and I still think Bosnia is a very good team but something obviously isn’t right,” said Prosinecki on the Bosnia FA website after the defeat. “It seems I have failed to motivate the team.” The game got off to a lively start as Edin Dzeko hit the post with a low shot for Bosnia before his AS Roma team mate Mkhitaryan gave the hosts a third-minute lead. The midfielder collected Tigran Barseghyan’s cross from the right before pushing it past goalkeeper Ibrahim Sehic and thumping it into the net. Bosnia hit back 10 minutes later as Amer Gojak’s inswinging cross found Dzeko who got away from the Armenia defence to turn the ball into the net. Mkhitaryan, Armenia’s record scorer, put his team back in front in the 66th minute when he provided an emphatic finish to a well-worked move, his 29th goal for his country, but Gojak levelled again for Bosnia four minutes later. Mkhitaryan then turned provider as he supplied a perfect cross for Hovhannes Hambardzumyan to score at the far post in the 77th minute. Gojak could have equalised in stoppage time but volleyed wide from a good position and then Stjepan Loncar turned Mkhitaryan’s cross into his own net to complete the scoring.

Cricket festival in honour of Tony Cozier

first_imgLATE legendary cricket broadcaster Tony Cozier is being honoured with a tournament called the Tony Cozier 23 and Under Youth to Youth T-6 Cricket Festival scheduled to commence Sunday, September 27 at the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA).It is the first of its kind and is expected to attract a total of 16 teams from across the island. The prize money includes $500 for first place and the Tony Cozier challenge shield, second place finishers will take away $250 and the losing semi-finalists will earn $125, tournament director Rodney Simpson said.Simpson explained during last Friday morning’s press conference held at the YMCA that from next year it would be turned into a regional competition because Cozier was well known throughout the Caribbean.“This tournament this year would be a local tournament but next year we will make it a regional tournament because Tony Cozier, who died on May 11, 2016 at the age of 75, is known throughout the Caribbean. We want to move the tournament to different parts of the Caribbean, we want to play it in Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, move it around.“Through this first tournament, what we are going to do is that we are going to use this tournament to select a Barbados team to represent Barbados out of this first tournament. So, this tournament is not a one-off and not a local tournament. We will use the local tournament as a nursery to play in the regional tournament,” Simpson said.He explained that for this inaugural edition, the teams are going to be split into four zones, eight matches per day over a period of four Sundays. Two teams from each zone will advance through to the quarterfinal, semifinal and final. Individual prizes will also be given to the most outstanding performers. Hamilton Lashley, chairman of the Hamilton Lashley Human Development Foundation, who is hosting the event, said that it wasn’t by accident that they envisioned this tournament.He explained that the idea for this cricket festival was mooted after his foundation looked across the landscape of Barbados and realised that young people needed intervention in their lives. Therefore, Lashley, a former member of parliament and also a veteran community activist, along with his committee members, came up with this competition named after the former sports journalist, administrator, outstanding community practitioner and president of the Barbados Hockey Association.“If we are going to tackle the serious issues confronting our young people in this country, we have to use practical and popular ideals, ideas and activities to at least bring what I like to call, a kind of equilibrium to the social landscape.“We have decided as a committee that the best medium to use and the most attractive medium to use, contrary to what some social interventionist might think, is the element of sports. Sports continue to be underestimated and underrated in terms of the stabilising effect that it brings to the community,“ Lashley said.The outspoken activist added that he believes the accolade of the highest order for the independence award in Barbados should have been accorded to Cozier when he was alive. And it is not just Cozier but many other outstanding sportsmen and women, he noted, that should have been honoured and recognised while they were still alive.Cozier’s daughter Natalie Linton was present at the launch and spoke on behalf of her family including brother and cricket analyst Craig Cozier who was in Trinidad and Tobago for the Caribbean Premier League. Linton in expressing her gratitude said: “It is a pleasure for me to be here and for my dad to be honoured like this to have a competition named after him. I am certain with all the partners involved and Mr Lashley’s organisation and his team that it will be a successful tournament and will go on for years.Community Officer of the Hamilton Lashley Human Development Foundation, which has been in operation since 2006, Marc Laurent, added that it was an honour to recognise a stalwart such as Cozier and to highlight his contribution, not only to cricket but also to hockey.“This foundation has facilitated a number of community events. I need to tip my hat to Mr Lashley because a lot of it has been done without the assistance of what we call social media now. This is an opportunity to highlight activities that the foundation has been taking part in over the last couple of years, and use this as a platform or springboard to get more individuals on board through traditional media,” Laurent said.

Girls basketball Bears edged by Oneida in holilday tournament final

first_img Tags: Chittenangogirls basketball But though it trailed 33-23 through three quarters, the Bears weren’t done. It made several key stops and, led again by Ally Shoemaker, whittled down its deficit to a single basket.Then, as time wound down, Chittenango had one more possession, and got a 3-point shot to win the game that found the rim – but bounced in and out before swishing through.Shoemaker finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks, while Cassidy Kelly had 10 points. Emily Moon had six points and six rebounds. For Oneida, Sydney Lusher and Ella Rainbow led with 15 points apiece. Just an inch or two separated the Chittenango girls basketball team from a massive victory over Oneida in last Saturday’s final of the Bears’ holiday tournament.Instead, the state Class B no. 7-ranked Indians held on to prevail, 38-36, handing Chittenango its first defeat of the season, but offering a tantalizing preview of what could happen if the two met again in the Section III Class B playoffs.Much of the game was, for the Bears, a major struggle to score points. Oneida’s defense clamped down for long stretches, especially a second quarter where it limited Chittenango to four points.center_img This was a high-quality tournament from the outset, Oneida holding off Auburn 50-44 in last Friday’s opening round, then Skaneateles proving pesky against Chittenango before the Bears got away to win 66-51.Only up 30-25 at halftime, Chittenango outscored the Lakers 20-13 in the third quarter, and it was Sarah Lanphear leading the way thanks to her 18 points and five rebounds.Shoemaker got 13 points, to go with nine assists and six rebounds. Moon had 10 points and nine rebounds as Kelly got eight points, six rebound and five assists, with Avery Salce adding seven points. Skaneateles went on to beat Auburn 45-35 in the consolation game.With its two-week break over, Cazenovia was back in action last Friday, at 6-1 Solvay, and used its defense to seize control against the Bearcats and prevail 53-35.Lindsey Lawson and the rest of the Lakers settled matters early, roaring to a 37-14 lead by halftime, which allowed it to dictate the pace the rest of the way. Ryleigh Bidwell paced Solvay with 13 points.Chittenango had another big test on Friday night when it took on undefeated, state Class A no. 22-ranked Christian Brothers Academy at Buddy Wleklinski Court.And while it had plenty of good moments, the Bears could never fully recover from a rough start in a 65-53 defeat to the Brothers.In the first of several key runs, CBA had a 10-0 push late in the first quarter. From there, it kept Chittenango at a distance, occasionally letting its lead slip to single digits, but answering each time.Shoemaker did all she could with 22 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and five blocks, while Lanphear had 13 points and nine rebounds, Moon adding 12 points and five rebounds.Yet it was the Brothers’ Brooke Jarvis that proved unstoppable, carrying CBA’s attack in the second half as she netted 20 of her game-high 29 points in those last two periods.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more
