AP4’s Ekvall calls for AP funds to have direct investment tools

first_imgThe chief executive of Sweden’s AP4 has called on the country’s legislators to give the funds the direct investment tools they need to make use of proposed new investment freedoms.Niklas Ekvall said in the fund’s newly-published annual report: “We are to be given the opportunity but not the tools, which we find hard to believe is the intention.”He referred to the proposed change in the investment rules for Sweden’s five AP funds, which invest capital to support the country’s first pillar pension schemes. The rules are currently going through the legislative process.Ekvall praised the proposal for allowing more flexibility in terms of allocation between different types of investment, with the key elements being a reduced requirement to hold liquid and high-quality interest-bearing securities and increased scope to invest in illiquid assets. “It is important, however, that this modernisation at the allocation level is followed by the corresponding level of modernisation of investment and instrument types in order not to significantly limit the more flexible allocation mandate, and impose unnecessarily expensive management,” Ekvall said. Niklas Ekvall, chief executive, AP4It was particularly important that the AP funds had the opportunity to make long-term and cost-effective direct investments such as joint ventures in unlisted companies, as well as investments in infrastructure, unlisted loans, and long-term sustainable assets.Ekvall made similar comments in the pension fund’s consultation response last autumn.The reform – part of a broader pensions overhaul in Sweden – is scheduled to take effect this summer.In financial results, AP4 reported it made a 9.1% net return on investment in 2017, on the back of “generally favourable performance for the global equity markets”.This return matches the return posted by AP2 earlier this month.AP4 said it would continue developing sustainable investments in its focus areas of climate, environment, and corporate governance.“Our low-carbon strategies increased to almost 31% of the global equity portfolio during 2017,” Ekvall said. This compared to 24% of the portfolio a year earlier.He said AP4 intended to increase these investments further and also widen the scope of sustainable investments.“We are doing this to lower the risk in the portfolio and create conditions for better returns,” he said.AP4’s total assets increased to SEK356.6bn (€35.6bn) at the end of 2017, from SEK333.9bn a year earlier.last_img read more

However, he recently said that he is happy at Barca, where he has spent his whole career, while the club are optimistic of agreeing a new contract with him soon.Ter Stegen, meanwhile, has two years to run on his deal, which expires in 2022, but his role at the club has greatly changed since he signed his last renewal in 2017. After Messi, many people now feel the goalkeeper is the most important player in Quique Setien’s team.The Germany international is happy at the club but Barca will have to show him how much they value him to ensure that remains the case.Pep Guardiola desperately tried to take him to Manchester City in 2016 before eventually signing Claudio Bravo instead, with Barca backing Ter Stegen over the Chilean, who had been their No. 1 in La Liga for the previous two seasons. Sources have told ESPN that, more recently, Juventus have shown an interest.Reports earlier this week even suggested that Ter Stegen could leave at the end of the season but sources close to the player insist that is not the case.Messi and Sergio Busquets are among those to have criticised the club in recent weeks as the rift between the players and the board widens and Ter Stegen also feels there are areas where things can be improved. However, his preference is to stay at Camp Nou. Barca are finalising their plans for the summer, when they will invest heavily in the squad, with Neymar and Lautaro Martinez among their top targets, before turning their attention to renewing some of the team’s key players.

SCA opens new Dennis Hopper exhibit

first_imgThe recently acquired Dennis Hopper exhibit, “Part of Being an Artist: The Dennis Hopper Collection, Selected Artwork and Ephemera”, opened at the School of Cinematic Arts on Tuesday. The exhibit is currently open exclusively to USC students, faculty and staff, but will be open to the public Oct. 10 through Nov. 26.The exhibit contains photographs, scripts and other memorabilia commemorating Hopper’s work as an actor, director and photographer. The main features of the exhibit are two large photographs of Andy Warhol and his work from Hopper’s collection, “The Lost Album”. Also on display is the Louisville Slugger baseball bat that was made personally for Hopper.The photographs on display were taken between 1961 and 1967 during Hopper’s most prolific period. Steve Hanson, head librarian of the Cinematic Arts Library, is a co-curator of the exhibit. Hanson said the Hopper exhibit has “a touch of everything.”“He took photos of everything. That was his thing,” he said.Hopper’s life is documented through his work in both the film and music industries. According to Hanson, Hopper’s career as a director began based on the advice of James Dean. Dean, Paul Newman and John Wayne were all friends of Hopper and can be seen in some of the photographs on display.“The circle of friends he had was amazing, from all walks of life,” Hanson said.The Hopper exhibit was acquired by USC from the Hopper Art Trust, which distributes the artist’s work throughout the world. Initially, the collection started with various movie scripts, VHS tapes and books. It has grown to its current size with the help of Hopper’s daughter, Marin, and Steve Hanson’s co-curators, Taylor Livingston and Sandra Garcia-Meyers.“It’s sort of like a family thing. Anything that someone donates to us, we work with,” Hanson said.Pieces of Hopper’s collections have previously been on display in the Gagosian Gallery in New York and the Museo Picasso in Málaga, Spain. This is the first time a Hopper collection has been on display in Los Angeles since 2010.SCA is working in collaboration with Visions and Voices to honor Dennis Hopper. Easy Rider, a film Hopper both directed and acted in, will be screened on Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. by Visions and Voices, which will also be showing another Hopper film, The Last Movie, on Nov. 14. After the screenings, panel discussions with some of Hopper’s colleagues will be held.In March 2010, Dennis Hopper was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He passed away two months later in Venice, California, after a 55-year career in the film industry.last_img read more
