The pre-tax profit has more than doubled to £94.5m for the quarter, up from the figure of £43.6m in the same three months a year earlier.The investment bank also yesterday revealed that there have been inflows of £21.5bn of new money since the start of the year, including £5.4bn in the past three months, double the amount that some analysts had predicted.Seventy-nine per cent of the new investment in 2010 has come from overseas investors, and the Asia Pacific region was responsible for £7.3bn of institutional investment in the first nine months, said Schroders, although its traditional stronghold of Europe is still its strongest region. It is the largest publicly traded asset-management company by market value in Europe.As of 30 September the wealth manager said that it had £181.5bn under management, a big increase from the figure of £138.9bn at the same time last year.The news was a shot in the arm for shares in Schroders. They were the biggest riser by price on the FTSE yesterday, closing 87p, or 5.79 per cent, higher on the day at 1,667p. Its previous high was way back in July 1998.

first_img GVC Holdings has stepped up its responsible gambling efforts with a call to end all sportsbook broadcast advertising in the UK.The operator, which was the first to publicise its support for a pre-watershed advertising ban in October 2018, has now thrown its support behind extending this ban to any time of day. This would include live and repeated sporting events, with an exemption for horse racing.However GVC has suggested allowing campaigns promoting responsible and safer gambling. This, it says, should be limited to one advertising slot per commercial break.The operator said that the forthcoming pre-watershed, whistle-to-whistle advertising ban, due to be implemented from the start of the 2019-20 football season in August this year, does not go far enough. This ban was agreed by the industry late last year and added to the Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG) in December.“Whilst the vast majority of our customers enjoy our products responsibly, it is high time that the industry did more to protect its customers from potential harm,” GVC chief executive Kenny Alexander (pictured) explained. “As the UK’s largest gambling company, and owner of Ladbrokes and Coral, we at GVC are doing exactly that.“I call on our industry peers to help us bring about an end to broadcast advertising which promotes sports-betting in the UK no matter the time of day.”Alongside its calls for the broadcast advertising ban, GVC has announced a series of new initiatives to tackle gambling related harm, as part of its ongoing Changing for the Bettor corporate social responsibility drive.Launched in January this year, the Changing for the Bettor initiative will see the operator invest in responsible gaming technology, support research and introduce new, voluntary controls across the business to ensure it operates in a fair and sustainable manner.Four new initiatives will be launched, with a shirt sponsorship and perimeter advertising ban the most eye-catching. This sees the operator commit to ending all football shirt sponsorship deals in the UK, and banning all advertising on pitchside hoardings. It aims to allow fans to watch live sport without any inducements to bet, and is calling on other operators, and UK football authorities, to adopt the measures.GVC will also increase its investment in research, education and treatment. It was the first – and to date, only – operator to commit to doubling its spending to 0.2% of UK gross gaming revenue in 2019, and has now committed to raising this to 1% of GGR by 2022. This will see it invest ten times the current minimum requirement.The operator will look to provide more funding to problem gambling treatment, establishing an independent trust to make charitable contributions to treatment centres. Manchester’s Leon House centre will be the first establishment to receive funding from the trust.Finally, it will make the GamBan software, founded by the team behind the Campaign for Fairer Gambling, available free of charge to individuals showing signs of developing problem gambling habits. This allows players to block access to all gambling sites in the UK via a single portal.“Increasing investment in research, education and treatment ten-fold by 2022, funding treatment centres and using technology to intervene before a problem develops, alongside our existing behavioural analytics, brings to life our commitment to be the most trusted and enjoyable betting operator in the world,” Alexander said.“The industry should and can do more to protect the vulnerable, and today’s announcement demonstrates GVC’s commitment to delivering on that.”These new initiatives follow previous measures taken as part of the Changing for the Bettor campaign, including investing $5m (£3.9m/€4.5m) in a responsible gaming study in partnership with Harvard Medical School. The campaign’s findings will be used to launch a global responsible gambling ad campaign.GVC has also agreed to provide funding to help GamCare roll out a youth outreach programme across the UK and partnered EPIC Risk Management, which will advise the operator on best practice for interacting with problem gamblers.

Investing in renewables: 5 UK shares I expect to rally in 2021 The UK budget today, as would be expected, focused on getting the economy back on track post-pandemic with a slew of relief measures. UK shares in the real estate segment have been the first to rally as a result. But I think more budget announcement unpacking can happen. 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…UK Budget 2021 gives renewables a pushSpecifically, I think companies associated with renewable energy will get a boost in the coming days and months. Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s second budget gave some importance to this aspect.For instance, green bonds that will allow the individual investor to participate in the growing sector are in the offing, as is an infrastructure bank to finance green infrastructure projects. Offshore wind manufacturing has also received a boost. FTSE 250 shares with green focusI think the real benefits of these initiatives will only show up overtime. But they do once again underline that climate is a key policy issue and I think they bode well for the following five UK shares.One, the Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG) is an obvious choice. The FTSE 250-listed investment company, specifically, though, will benefit because one of its focus areas is offshore wind projects. TRIG’s share price has lost some of its mojo since the stock market rally of November. Additionally, its last results were nothing to write home about. Both its revenue and profits for the full-year 2020 had declined. I think it is due for recovery and could be a good investment over the long term. Two, Greencoat UK Wind (UKW), another FTSE 250 stock, is even more likely to gain. And not just because of the latest policy push.This renewable infrastructure fund showed stellar performance for the full-year 2020. Its revenue increased by 74% and its net profit more than doubled.Risks to these UK sharesThe one big risk to both these stocks, however, is that their share prices are already quite elevated. For instance, TRIG has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of over 37 times and UKW has one of 33 times. I think that for TRIG in particular, this looks steep, going by its latest performance. UKW less so, but it is highly priced nevertheless. For all the commitment to green energy, the growth process can be slower than is anticipated. This would mean that returns to capital maybe slower to come by. FTSE 100 shares to considerIn this context, FTSE 100 shares that are tied to clean energy can look like better options. Not only do they have longer track records of being successful companies, they also have interests in other segments. As an example, consider Anglo American, which sees greater use of platinum group metals to this end. The FTSE 100 multi-commodity miner Rio Tinto and chemicals manufacturer Johnson Matthey are other examples that I talked about in some more detail yesterday.   However, when investing in the context of renewables, I think it is important to remember that it may not become a significant enough business segment for them in the foreseeable future. For pure renewable investments, the FTSE 250 stocks look more promising, though they come with their own risks.  See all posts by Manika Premsinghlast_img read more

first_imgSaturday Nov 29, 2014 Sam Burgess makes his rugby union debut in Bath win over Harlequins League convert Sam Burgess made his highly anticipated Rugby Union debut in last nights 25-6 Bath win over Harlequins at the Rec. It was a short cameo, playing at centre, but showed glimpses of what he could be capable of with ball in hand. Just seven weeks ago he was playing rugby league, winning the NRL Grand Final after breaking his cheekbone in the first minute. Now he’s a rugby union player, and one that has the whole of England, and indeed fans around the world, watching on closely.His debut came in quite bizarre circumstances, as Harlequins were down to just 12 players after referee Wayne Barnes brandished three yellow cards. It was also raining so the conditions weren’t ideal, but post match he had a smile ear to ear, seemingly loving every minute of it.“I’ve been mixing it up in training but I think I’ll stay at centre for now, certainly over the next few games,” said the 25-year-old when asked about what position he’ll likely play in.“But we’ve got a lot of time. It’s certainly not an overnight transition and the worst thing we could do is rush it. It was always going to be hard but I’ve really enjoyed it and everyone’s been open to teaching me things.“The game’s tough to learn and I was sat on the bench a little bit nervous. I haven’t felt that for a while but I enjoyed the feeling and the adrenalin and once you get on the field you just enjoy the game,” said the former league star who was awarded the Clive Churchill Medal a few weeks back.He came on in the midfield last night, but Bath coach Mike Ford wants to try him in the forwards.“The two carries he had were very, very good. He needs to get out there and play and when the pressure’s on that will accelerate his learning,” Ford said.“There’s a plan there and Sam’s first few games are going to come at 12, but when it’s dry we’re going to have a look at him in the back row as well. Personally, I think that will suit Sam personally more.“It’s a gut feeling of mine as he’s a guy who carries and tackles a lot and I don’t want to stick him out in the centre to do nothing. That’s not his skill set. Can we get him over the gain line with six, seven or eight on his back? Of course we can and the next month or so we’ll know where he is.“My vision is for Sam to be a barnstorming back row and we’ll see how it unfolds, it’ll be a good journey,” Ford, whose son George starts for England at flyhalf today, added.It’s been debated before, but after seeing a bit of him in action and hearing what both he and coach Ford have to say, where do you think Burgess would be best suited?

The 18th & Boulder Townhouse development is situated in Denver’s Lower Highlands (Lohi) neighborhood on the North side of Denver’s downtown boundary. The Lohi neighborhood has become an especially popular destination for new development and includes a mix of single family homes, commercial buildings, and large apartment blocks, all juxtaposed against one other. Small two-story homes share the same block, adjacent to and in the shadow of 5-story structures. This project resides on a corner lot and shares street frontage with two such structures, including an apartment building to the West and a single-family residence to the South. The context presents a special challenge to new development, requiring both a macro and micro scaled design response. Save this picture!© Astula, Raul Garcia; Meridian 105Meridian 105’s design includes three side-by-side private townhouse residences in a single building structure.  Each home is 3-stores in height with a 4th story exterior rooftop deck.  The building responds to its larger neighbor to the West with a single formal massing expression along that street front, heavy in its materiality and unbroken geometrically.  The façade makes a finer expression in the building material, where brick textures add interest to the mass and bridge the design to a man-made scale.  As the building turns the corner, its volumes begin to disseminate with smaller 1 and 2-story void spaces containing exterior decks.  These exterior spaces draw the residents out, presenting a more active use to that façade.   It was the design team’s goal to draw attention to these spaces and has chosen black and white materials in order to offer contrast along the façade. Save this picture!© Astula, Raul Garcia; Meridian 105Save this picture!Level 2Save this picture!© Astula, Raul Garcia; Meridian 105One of the early project goals was to enrich the pedestrian experience around the base of the building.  This is accomplished in the expression of building materials.  Brick veneer, wood siding, and metal screening convey a hand-made quality of work and are acknowledged to be imperfect in their appearance, adding a dimension of unpredictability to each building façade.   Shou Sugi Ban siding (charred wood) applied in a lapped installation offers interest in its heavily shadowed look, and a textural surface appreciated again at close proximity.  The resulting sheen of this treatment transforms through the day with the changing light.  Brick is installed in unconventional bonding patterns and surface orientations. Save this picture!© Astula, Raul Garcia; Meridian 105Project gallerySee allShow lessCut Out House / Fougeron ArchitectureSelected Projects5 Architecture Offices Using VR to Present Their DesignsArticles Share Core Consultants The Augusta Group Interior Design: last_img read more

first_img News October 24, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Intimidation campaign tragets opposition and liberal media RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Saudi media silent on RSF complaint against MBS Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa News Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa March 9, 2021 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders called on the Saudi government today to stop its extensive intimidation of the country’s media that has included jamming an opposition radio station this week, cutting off TV broadcasts by the same group and making death threats to liberal journalists.The radio station, Al-Islah, run by the Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia (MIRA) is the first and only opposition voice broadcasting to the country from abroad. Satellite broadcasts by MIRA’s London-based TV station were also cut off in late August after only a few months on the air. “The country’s powerful hardline religious leaders are obsessed with crushing dissident opinions and the authorities have been cracking down ruthlessly in recent months on those in the press and elsewhere calling for speedier and more radical reforms than those offered by the government,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.The government has announced unprecedented elections next year for town councils and for the Majlis, the national consultative body. The pro-government media has welcomed this but the entire Saudi media remains under the tight control of the interior and information ministries. About 100 reformist journalists, writers and intellectuals have recently been censored or banned from the country’s press, according to US-based Saudi dissident Ali al-Ahmad. Journalist Hussein Shobokshi was banned from the daily paper Okaz after writing an article saying he dreamed that one day the Saudi people would have the right to vote freely, discuss human rights and, in the case of women, to drive vehicles. He was also banned from writing in the Arab News and his political programme on the Saudi-funded TV station Al-Arabiya was dropped. A regular column in the daily Al-Hayat by Dawud al-Shirian was stopped four months ago and the daily Al-Riyad sent its commentator Mansur al-Nogaidan on indefinite leave. Like Shobokshi, Nogaidan has had death threats. “Newsapers prefer to avoid problems by simply asking journalists to stop writing,” he says.MIRA leader Saad al-Faqih told Reporters Without Borders that the Saudis had jammed Al-Islah radio broadcasts since 22 October to head off MIRA’s call for street demonstrations in nine of the country’s towns to demand the release of those jailed after an earlier protest. A rare demonstration by several hundred people was staged on 14 October in front of Riyadh’s conference centre where a human rights meeting was being held. The interior ministry, which forbids all public gatherings or demonstrations throughout the country, said 83 people were arrested and would soon be tried.Al-Islah, launched by the opposition last December and broadcasting from Europe round the clock via the Hotbird satellite on the 11.096 MHz frequency, carries interviews with the MIRA leadership, other figures and ordinary people, especially Saudis, as well as cultural and news programmes. In May this year, MIRA started up a satellite TV station (also called Al-Islah), whose programme production, broadcasting and technical signals pass through several European countries. But it was mysteriously cut off in August and Faqih said strong Saudi government pressure had been exerted on the various operators involved in the station’s broadcasting.center_img News Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more RSF_en NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News Follow the news on Saudi Arabia Receive email alerts to go furtherlast_img read more
