​Top Varma manager becomes Veritas CIO, highlights need for agility

first_imgVeritas, the smallest of Finland’s four pension insurance companies which provide the bulk of the country’s earnings-related pensions, has poached a top investment manager from one of the big two pension insurers.Kari Vatanen, who was head of cross asset derivative strategies and allocation at the €47.4bn pension insurer Varma until now, has been appointed as Veritas’ new CIO.He will replace Niina Bergring who left at the end of December after six years in the role to become executive vice president, asset management at Aktia Bank.Vatanen – now on “gardening leave” from Varma, according to his LinkedIn profile – has spoken out in Veritas’ announcement of his appointment about the current need for institutional investors to be agile and change their beliefs. “It is hard to imagine a more exciting time than now to start working as a CIO in a pension insurance company,” said Vatanen, who will take up his new role at the €3.5bn pension provider on 1 March.“Speaking of economic growth, we are in the late cycle. Behind us we have more than 10 years of rising equity market and the rates have declined to the extreme low levels,” he said.Though traditional asset classes had produced strong returns for many years, he said risks seemed higher in forthcoming scenarios than expected returns.Capital markets were already strongly supported by central banks, he said, and all markets could be driven down at the same time when growing geopolitical tensions erupted, adding that there were then no means left to diversify the risks in the investment portfolio.“In this economic environment it is valuable for institutional investors to be agile and able to update their investing beliefs,” Vatanen said.When questioned by IPE, Vatanen declined to comment on any concrete plans he had for Veritas, but referred to his previous writing on diversification and the lack of it.“Diversification to the alternative asset classes or even to the macro factors or alternative risk premia doesn’t automatically guarantee well-diversified portfolios in all the economic environments,” he told IPE.“Investors should be aware of the tail dependencies between asset classes or factors and be ready to adjust their expectations and portfolio risk levels in the changing market environment,” he said.According to first half 2019 report, Veritas had 39.3% of its assets in fixed income, 36.8% in equities, with 14.5% in real estate and 9.3% in “other” investments – a category which included 7.7% in hedge funds.last_img read more

EPL: Salah fires Liverpool 19 points clear

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Liverpool surged 19 points clear at the top of the Premier League after easing to a 2-0 win at West Ham courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Jurgen Klopp’s side were serenaded with chants of “we’re gonna win the league” in the final minutes, an assessment it is virtually impossible to argue against as the Reds asserted their superiority in typically ruthless fashion to extend their lead over Manchester City. West Ham stuck at their task well enough but were outclassed and David Moyes will need to rally his troops quickly as they sit above the relegation zone on goal difference ahead of Saturday’s crucial battle with fellow-strugglers Brighton. Roberto Firmino and Salah combined to release Andrew Robertson for Liverpool’s first clear chance but the left-back could only lift a weak shot over Lukasz Fabianski which Diop mopped up as it drifted wide. He was just assured just after the half-hour mark. Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped a cross into Firmino, whose first touch was sublime. The Brazilian found Origi with a square ball in the box and as he wriggled to turn goalwards eight yards out, Diop chopped him down. Salah made no mistake from 12 yards, firing low to Fabianksi’s left as he dived the other way. West Ham missed an excellent chance to draw level less than five minutes into the second period as Robert Snodgrass fed Declan Rice, who crossed for Lanzini. The 26-year-old was unmarked in the middle of the penalty area but only managed a tame effort which barely reached Alisson. The Hammers then had a corner shortly afterwards as they attempted to generate momentum but instead they conceded a second goal. Virgil Van Dijk headed the ball away and as Mark Noble let the ball bounce, Masuaku wasn’t strong enough on Salah and suddenly the break was on as Henderson released the Egyptian. With the outside of his left foot, Salah bent a superb pass in behind the Hammers defence and Oxlade-Chamberlain showed strength to bounce off Lanzini before steering a shot past Fabianski. Snodgrass almost replied instantly with a snapshot after Georginio Wijnaldum gifted possession to Lanzini but the Scotland international’s effort was turned behind by Alisson, low to his right. Lanzini’s night ended in unedifying fashion as cheers from a sizeable number of home fans greeted his 69th-minute substitution and they almost had something more positive to shout about when Rice’s shot was beaten away by Alisson. Alexander-Arnold tried to react to the rebound but only succeeding in diverting the ball back past his goalkeeper and off his right-hand upright. Salah hit the post at the other end as Liverpool sought to add further gloss to the scoreline but instead they had to settle for a two-goal margin that only makes their first title win in 30 years all the more inevitable.Tags: Alex Oxlade-ChamberlainJurgen KloppLiverpoolMohamed SalahWest Hamlast_img read more

LVG to Spurs is done deal – Gullit

first_img Press Association The former Chelsea and Newcastle manager told BBC Radio Five: “I know for sure he was at Van Gaal’s house, the chairman. I think it’s a done deal, but you never know.” Sherwood took over from Villas-Boas as caretaker after a 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool and steered Spurs to victory in three of their next four Barclays Premier League games. However, last Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton, in which they trailed 2-0 at one point, was their first in five in all competitions and just the 10th in the 21 games of his reign to date. Tim Sherwood was handed an 18-month contract in December last year following Andre Villa-Boas’ departure. However, Gullit has suggested it is a “done deal” for Van Gaal to take over when he leaves his current post after this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil. center_img Ruud Gullit has claimed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has struck a deal with Holland coach Louis van Gaal to take over as manager at White Hart Lane. last_img read more

Cricket News Dhoni pulls out of West Indies tour, takes two-month break amid retirement speculation

first_imgNew Delhi: Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni Saturday made himself “unavailable” for the tour of West Indies but ruled out immediate retirement a day before the selectors meet in Mumbai to pick the squads for the upcoming away series. Amid mounting speculation around his international retirement after India’s semi-final exit from the recent World Cup, Dhoni has told the BCCI that he will take a two-month sabbatical from the game to serve his paramilitary regiment.Dhoni is an Honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment of the Territorial Army,“We would like to clarify three things. MS Dhoni is not retiring from cricket right now. He is taking a two month sabbatical to serve his paramilitary regiment which he had committed much earlier. We have now intimated his decision to skipper Virat Kohli and chairman of selectors MSK Prasad,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on Saturday.The 38-year-old Dhoni’s refusal to take retirement now leaves the ball in the court of the selectors, who were expected to drop him from the squad for the West Indies. India will play three T20 Internationals, as many ODIs and two Tests in the tour starting August 3.It is believed that the selection committee chaired by MSK Prasad wants to move forward with an eye on future but they would also like to get a sense of where the Indian captain stands on this issue.“The selection committee has always been clear on one issue. They have no right to tell anyone irrespective of their stature as to when they should call it quits but when it comes to team selection, it remains their domain,” a senior BCCI official said.With Dhoni pulling out of the tour, Rishabh Pant is expected to be first wicketkeeper in all three formats while Wriddhiman Saha will be Pant’s understudy in the Tests.From now, the focus will be more on T20 cricket keeping the World T20 in mind, which is scheduled to be held in Australia next year.India will be playing a lot of bilateral three-match T20 series in run-up to the global meet and with Dhoni expected to play one more season of IPL with Chennai Super Kings, things are a bit tricky at the moment.There are a few questions that the selectors need to answer.Whether they see Dhoni playing till World T20? If the answer is yes, are they willing to give him 15 to 18 T20s during the phase as a keeper-batsman?If that answer is also yes, it would boil down to whether skipper Virat Kohli sees him as a batsman in T20s where keeping isn’t the primary skill required.With Dhoni’s ever-declining hitting abilities, can he come in at Nos 6 or 7 where he might, at best, get 6 to 8 balls in most games and even less in some?If that answer is also yes, the next question that would crop up is if he can hit the likes of Jofra Archer, Jason Behrendorff or Mohammed Amir straightaway in the slog overs.There is a case about Dhoni’s stellar success in death overs at the IPL. He always gets one weak Indian bowler—say a Mohammed Siraj, Harshal Patel or Dhawal Kulkarni or Sandeep Sharma from whom he scores those 15 to 20-run overs.But would that be possible against a Lockie Ferguson or a Pat Cummins?The current selection committee’s term ends in October when the BCCI elections are scheduled and they would like to put a transition phase in place in consonance with what the captain and the coach want.However, once the board members take over after the elections and if Dhoni decides to stick with his decision of not retiring, there could be some twists and turns in the coming months.Till then, all roads lead to the BCCI headquarters on Sunday where Prasad will address the most defining press conference of his eventful tenure.
