Hybrid pension approach helps avoid DC ‘cliff’, says 300 Club

first_imgHybrid pension funds must have a “balanced” governance structure in place to ensure no one group of beneficiaries is penalised, the latest paper by the 300 Club has said.David Villa, a member of the group of investment professionals seeking to improve the investment landscape, argued that the hybrid approach of blending defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) was preferable to “going off the defined contribution cliff”.Villa – CIO at the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB), which reformed to offer employees of the US state hybrid benefits – insisted governance was a crucial risk when determining pension outcomes.“Governance decisions are ultimately equivalent to a change in return and can contribute significantly to volatility of outcomes,” he argued. In his paper, ‘The Third Way: A hybrid model for pensions’, he claims that if the governance model is not designed properly, then one group of beneficiaries risks losing out at the expense of another.“Both the DB and DC models lack the countervailing force provided by risk sharing,” he writes. He argues that the model used by SWIB, which manages assets worth $91bn (€74.8bn), was easily copied by other providers by offering a minimum benefit guarantee and any gains made above the level split between sponsor and member.“The risk sharing aspects of this design have profound implications for the governance of the system,” he says. “Interests are not aligned in DB or DC structures. “In the hybrid structure, risk is shared, and the alignment of interest that results contributes to a virtuous cycle of governance.”Villa argues in favour of the benefits of any hybrid approach.“Society,” he writes, “would also be better off if we could avoid going off the defined contribution cliff, wherein financially unsophisticated individuals take on large risks that significantly change their wealth in retirement if they get it wrong.”last_img read more

Pienaar sidelined for season opener

first_img Press Association Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar will miss the start of the season with a hamstring injury. The South African, who managed just 11 appearances in the previous campaign and only one after December 15, sustained the problem in training and was left out of his side’s friendly win against Hearts at the weekend. “Obviously it was a really sad moment for all of us when Stevie picked up that injury in training,” manager Roberto Martinez told evertontv. center_img “He’s gone back now to be fully assessed by our medical team at Finch Farm and we’ll get the results very soon. ” But it does seem it’s a problem with his hamstring and clearly he’s going to miss the start of the season, which is a real shame because Stevie worked with fantastic results and fantastic signs over the first three weeks of pre-season. “We were very down about that situation and we hope to get Stevie back as soon as we can.” While Pienaar’s injury issues continue, team-mate Bryan Oviedo insists he has put his troubled past behind him as he focuses on a return to first-team action. The Costa Rica international managed just 11 appearances last season as his comeback from a double-break of his leg took longer than expected and then a fractured metatarsal in April ended his campaign prematurely. Having made his first appearance in five months – in that friendly against Hearts at the weekend – the 25-year-old is looking to move forwards now. “Now everything is coming together well and I hope to play more minutes in this pre-season and be ready for the season ahead,” he told evertontv. “I hope I can work hard on my fitness and get more minutes in the next game. “It was a long wait but now it is in the past. Now the most important thing is to work hard and to be ready. “For me, the most important thing is the future now.” last_img read more

Indian Premier League IPL sees rare sight – Jos Buttler gets mankaded by Ravichandran Ashwin

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Jaipur: With Chris Gayle ballistic knock of 79 runs along with Sarfaraz Khan’s 46 runs helped Kings XI Punjab to post 184 runs on the board. In reply, Rajasthan Royals was off to a rollicking start and Punjab’s bowling looked all over the places. Jos Buttler, who was the start for Rajasthan Royals last season continued his sensational run to help the team reach 50 runs in just 5.2 overs.Buttler and Rahane made 78 runs together, eventually helping the team to be in a solid situation. Rahane got out to Ravichandran Ashwin who bowled a carom ball – his favorite weapon to send the skipper back. However, the wicket of Rahane didn’t bring much ecstasy to Punjab’s camp as Buttler was still hitting bowlers out of the park on every other occasion. In these circumstances, Punjab’s skipper Ravichandran Ashwin did what we generally don’t expect of him – an appeal for mankading. In the thirteenth over of the Rajasthan’s innings, Ashwin was coming to bowl his last ball before he saw Buttler a little outside the crease and he ran him out. Once Ashwin broke the bails off, he appealed to the on-field umpire who went straight to the third umpire to take the final call. Third umpire, after seeing the incident again gave Buttler out, which led him in the state of absolute red-faced and letting a few expletives too.Informally, in general terms, this is known as mankading which on almost every occasion makes controversy as cricket pundits are on two sides – whether the batsman should be adjudicated out or not out. Going as per the new rules by the ICC, the decision was rightly made. Interestingly, this is not the first time Buttler is involved in this Mankading incident. In the fifth ODI between Sri Lanka and England back in 2014, Senanayake ran Buttler out. The mankading incident happened only the second time in the history of this format, with Dwayne Smith ran out Dwayne Bravo in 2013.last_img read more

Dolphins schedule 2020: Dates & times for all 16 games, strength of schedule, final record prediction

first_imgThe strength of the Dolphins’ 2020 schedule is not irrelevant, but for a team that has reached double-digit wins just once in the last decade and is rebuilding with so many young players, Miami needs to focus on itself more than its 2020 opponents.As for the Dolphins’ 2020 schedule, though, the rough road begins in the division, where the Bills, Jets and even the Tom Brady-less Patriots have better outlooks than that of Miami. The Dolphins likely will steal some wins against division rivals, but their slate outside the AFC East will make a playoff push tough. Simply based on last season’s records, the most winnable game on the Dolphins’ 2020 schedule is a home matchup with the Bengals. If both Tua Tagovailoa and Joe Burrow are healthy and starting for that game, it will go from one of the dullest games on both teams’ schedules to one of the most intriguing quarterback matchups of the 2020 season.Here is a complete breakdown of the Miami Dolphins’ 2020 schedule, including dates and start times for all 16 games and our early prediction.NFL OFFSEASON 2020:Draft grades | Power rankings | Best free agents availableMiami Dolphins schedule 2020WeekDateOpponentKickoff timeTV1Sept. 13at Patriots1 p.m.CBS2Sept. 20vs. Bills1 p.m.CBS3Sept. 24at Jaguars8:20 p.m.NFLN4Oct. 4vs. Seahawks1 p.m.Fox5Oct. 11at 49ers4:05 p.m.Fox6Oct. 18at Broncos4:05 p.m.CBS7Oct. 25vs. Chargers1 p.m.CBS8Nov. 1vs. Rams1 p.m.Fox9Nov. 8at Cardinals4:25 p.m.CBS10Nov. 15vs. Jets4:05 p.m.CBS11BYE—12Nov. 29at Jets1 p.m.CBS13Dec. 6vs. Bengals1 p.m.CBS14Dec. 13vs. Chiefs1 p.m.CBS15Dec. 20vs. Patriots1 p.m.CBS16Dec. 26 or 27at RaidersTBDTBD17Jan. 3at Bills1 p.m.CBS(For Canadian viewers, each game can be streamed on DAZN.)MORE: Strength of schedule for all 32 teams in 2020Dolphins strength of schedule & predictionAs is the case for all four AFC East teams, based on opponents’ records from last season, the Dolphins’ 2020 schedule is among the toughest in the NFL. Miami’s 2020 opponents went a combined 135-120-1 (.529) last season, placing the Dolphins third in NFL strength of schedule rankings behind the rival Patriots and Jets.Of course, that doesn’t account for the league-wide changes from free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft. And with Brady now out of New England, it’s reasonable to expect the Patriots to be one of the teams on the Dolphins’ schedule that takes a step back this season.Toughest tests: Miami is used to long road trips for away games, but adventures to San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver and Arizona will be particularly challenging this season with the Dolphins’ division matched up against the AFC and NFC Wests. While the Dolphins are fortunate to draw the Chiefs, Seahawks, Chargers and Rams at home, those are potentially brutal matchups. Biggest breaks: Of those aforementioned long road trips outside of the division, only game against the 49ers pits the Dolphins against a playoff team from last season.Bottom line: Because the Dolphins will depend so much on the rate of Tagovailoa’s development, their outlook for 2020 is among the most unpredictable in the NFL. But if all the young talent in Miami clicks, the schedule is such that the team can make some noise — just not yet in the playoffs.Record prediction: 6-10last_img read more
