The £1.5bn (€1.6bn) Cornwall Pension Fund has appointed Man FRM, a hedge fund, to manage a £120m allocation following an investment review.The local authority scheme is set to increase its allocation to hedge funds dramatically after it decided to place more focus on alternative asset classes.Prior to announcing the mandate, the fund had a 1.4% allocation to a fund of funds strategy operated by Permal, but it will now allocate directly to Man.As part of the scheme’s continued investment strategy overhaul, selecting a hedge fund manager was first priority alongside searching for additional opportunities in illiquid assets such as infrastructure, where it also allocated 1.4%. Following on from the strategy review, the fund decided to increase its hedge fund allocation to 8% and appointed UK advisory firm JLT Employee Benefits to run a full open-market procurement exercise.Investment manager at Cornwall Pension Fund, Matthew Trebilcock, said accessing the asset class via Man provided more transparency for the fund.“This feature is not always available through the traditional fund of funds offering and was a major consideration for us,” he said. Cornwall will invest in Man’s solution designed for Local Government Pension Schemes (LGPS), providing additional transparency and legal control of assets, with a sliding fee structure depending on collective assets.“In addition, the sliding management fee structure provides a real collaboration opportunity for all LGPS funds in the hedge fund asset class,” Trebilcock added.Man Group president Luke Ellis said: “We fully acknowledge the current pressure the LGPS funds are under to achieve cost reductions, and we have embraced this by treating the LGPS as a single investor with regards to pricing but as quite different investors with regards to the eventual solution provided.”
Kawhi Leonard to Clippers: LeBron James and Lakers waiting in huge cross-city rivalry The NBA is going to look quite different in 2019-20.After leading the Toronto Raptors to their first title, Kawhi Leonard reportedly will team up with Paul George at the Los Angeles Clippers next season. It is a move that will reignite the rivalry with a much-changed Los Angeles Lakers, while the Golden State Warriors have seen Kevin Durant jump ship and move to the Eastern Conference.We look at the teams with a “big two” following a series of movements in an incredible offseason. Related News Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Star to sign with Clippers, reports say LOS ANGELES CLIPPERSIt was a big surprise when the Clippers took the defending champion Warriors to Game 6 in the playoffs, but they will undoubtedly be a better team next season.The additions of Leonard and six-time All-Star George – although the latter came at a high price that included sending Danilo Gallinari, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and five first-round draft picks, four of which are unprotected, and two pick swaps to the Oklahoma City Thunder – have created a new force in the Western Conference that will be looking to contend straight away.Now that’s what I’m talking about!!!The NBA man!!!!!— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 6, 2019LOS ANGELES LAKERSDespite finally pulling off the acquisition of Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans, the Lakers freed up enough cap space for a run at Leonard.However, they were unable to seal a deal with the NBA Finals MVP and will instead look to improve on LeBron James’ disappointing first season by forming a truly formidable duo with Davis.That LAL vs. LAC rivalry gonna be— Kevin Love (@kevinlove) July 6, 2019BROOKLYN NETSDurant ruptured his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, but it did not lead to a reduction in interest in the Warriors star.The 2014 MVP decided to end his time at Golden State and team up with Kyrie Irving at the Brooklyn Nets, who consequently captured two of the three biggest free agents on the market to step up their rebuild several notches.I’ve said it before but if you woke up from a 25 year coma and found out the Raptors, Cavs and Warriors have chips and the Bucks, Clippers and Nets are all contenders they would have to revive you again— Robin Lopez (@rolopez42) July 6, 2019GOLDEN STATE WARRIORSIt looked as though the Warriors would dominate again when they signed DeMarcus Cousins to a one-year deal in the last offseason, despite the center being sidelined by an Achilles injury.Cousins has not returned and with Durant out the door, Golden State will be relying on the backcourt tandem of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson – reportedly on a five-year max contract – though trading for D’Angelo Russell could lighten the load.#NBAFinals, Game 5 at TOR#SPLASH [email protected] and @StephenCurry30 traded clutch treys in the final moments, lifting the Dubs to a down-to-the-wire win pic.twitter.com/RcXvpiraZE— Golden State Warriors (@warriors) June 28, 2019HOUSTON ROCKETSHaving lost out to the Miami Heat in their reported pursuit of Jimmy Butler, the Rockets will go again with James Harden and Chris Paul leading the charge.General manager Daryl Morey rejected reports of a rift between Harden and Paul, though he will be keen for the team to start winning as early as possible following a sluggish start in 2018-19.

The White House’s coronavirus pandemic task force held another briefing late Wednesday afternoon, as the Senate agreed to a $2 trillion economic stimulus package.President Trump expressed his support for the bill, saying he would immediately sign it. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said his “expectation is that this bill passes tonight” and checks could be in the mail within three weeksIt would provide tax rebates, four months expanded unemployment benefits and business tax-relief provisions, in addition to checks for most Americans.The President added that he hopes parts of the nation will be able to return to work and school soon, possibly by Easter. He approved major disaster declarations on Wednesday for New York, California, Washington, Iowa, Louisiana, Texas and Florida.According to the commander-in-chief, testing capacity is growing “exponentially,” while the gap continues to close between the number of people who need the tests and those available for them.https://t.co/U6l7jrRQMW— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2020 The President also said, “Our country was built to get back to work. We don’t have a country where they say, ‘Hey, let’s close it down for two years.’ We can’t do that. It’s not our country.”In terms of how long a stimulus could sustain the U.S. economy, Trump replied, “Hopefully a long time. We’ll see. If we have to go back, we’ll go back.”Wednesday marks day 10 of the 15-day period of the White House’s “15 Days To Slow The Spread initiative.” The President said Wednesday, “we’ll be speaking to everybody” about what follows and that “it’ll be an interesting period of time.”Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned of the inevitability of a second wave of COVID-19 unless proper protocol is followed, basing the concern on projections in other countries that have already endured cycles of the virus.
Lancashire’s Les Wilson has accepted the nomination to become President Elect of England Golf for 2020. He will succeed Somerset’s Graham Yates as President in 2021.Les was a relative latecomer to the game of golf at the age of 33 when he gave up playing football for a local club in the Lancashire Amateur League. It was then that he joined Greenmount Golf Club near Bury and he has been a member there ever since. He is also a member at Royal Lytham & St Anne’s and plays to a handicap of 13.The new President Elect first got involved with golf administration at his home club of Greenmount in the late 1980s. He went on to become junior organiser for the Bury and District Golf Association and then in 1999 joined the executive of the Lancashire Union of Golf Clubs and was Championship Chairman before becoming its President in 2012.Les was appointed to the Board of England Golf in 2014 and has since played a key role in many areas including as Chairman of its Finance and Audit committee and on its Championship Panel.“It is a huge honour to have been nominated as the next President Elect of England Golf,” he said. “The invitation came totally out of the blue but I can assure you it took next to no time to accept.“Golf has played a huge part in my life over the past 30-odd years and it has been my privilege to have had the chance to work with so many volunteers and colleagues dedicated to driving the game forwards.“I have huge respect for the Past Presidents of England Golf and can only hope that I fulfil my duties as diligently and as successfully as they have done.“I am taking up the post with a mixture of excitement and apprehension but, above all else, I look forward to meeting lots of people up and down the country over the next few years,” he added. “That is going to be a lot of fun.” Away from the golf course Les is Chairman of a software house which he founded in 1984 and which specialises in document management and workflow system implementation and maintenance.He is married to wife Lesley and has two daughters, Emma and Anika, and two granddaughters, Ysabelle and Keira. 16 Jul 2019 Lancashire’s Les Wilson to be 2021 England Golf President Tags: England Golf, Les Wilson, President
Facebook0Tweet0Pin0The Timothy Team is a local helps organization that sets up around 400 families a year for those who have suffered a catastrophic event. We go even further than that and actually mentor those folks until they are strong enough to make it on their own should they permit us to. We are all volunteered staffed, all private donation funded, and 100% of all that is donated goes right back into the community. We are tax deductible for donations, and we pick up. We are also referral only. We take referrals from over 60 local helps agencies and many of our churches. Timothy Team is a registered 501 ©3, and our EIN# is 208388746. We are also registered with the Wash. St. Combined Fund Drive, and our number there is 1479477.On Friday November 11th starting at 2:00pm we will be having a “fill the truck drive” and silent auction at the historic Black Lake Grange right next to the new Black Lake Fire Dept.. From 4:00pm to 6:00pm we will be having our awesome soup cook-off. It will be a suggested donation, and 5 men who have been bantering for years over who is the best cook will be put to the test. If nothing else, come by and vote for your favorite soup. The silent auction will close at 7:00pm.This fundraiser is very important to our community. About 2 years ago, the Union Gospel Mission and Barb and Friends quit doing furniture. Now there are a few other organizations that provide furnishings, but none to the scale that Timothy Team does. We make a huge impact on the health and welfare of our community, and now we need your help to keep going. Please attend our fundraiser and support those who support you. If you can’t make it to the fundraiser, we schedule for the pick-up of donations of furniture, other household items, food, and hygiene products every Saturday. Just call our hot line and follow the directions. If you would like to make a money donation, you can contact Leann Paul at (360)357-9311. Hope to see you soon!
