Russians, Saudis top UK ‘independent’ sanctions list for rights violators

first_imgIndividuals from North Korea were also included on the list and all those named will have their UK assets frozen and travel bans imposed.It is the first time Britain has gone it alone and used sanctions to penalize individuals and organizations accused of human rights abuse. Previously, it has followed European Union and United Nations sanctions regimes.The new measures were announced by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in a statement to the House of Commons.He said the government would now have the “power to impose sanctions on those involved in the very worst human rights abuses right around the world. Britain on Monday identified 49 “notorious” individuals and organizations, 25 of them Russian and 20 Saudis, to be sanctioned under its first post-Brexit targeting of accused human rights violators, prompting immediate anger from Moscow.The Russians are listed for their alleged involvement in the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky and the Saudis for suspected roles in the death of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Foreign Office said.One notable name on the list is Saud al-Qahtani, who it is believed oversaw the team that killed Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Turkey in 2018. “These sanctions are a forensic tool, they allow us to target perpetrators without punishing the wider people of a country that may be affected.”He added: “Today this Government and this House sends a very clear message on behalf of the British people that those with blood on their hands, the thugs of despots, the henchman of dictators will not be free to waltz into this country to buy up property on the King’s Road, to do their Christmas shopping in Knightsbridge or frankly to siphon dirty money through British banks or other financial institutions.”Those targeted would be those not just committing human rights abuses but anyone who profited from them, Raab said.Lisa Nandy, the main opposition Labor party’s foreign affairs spokeswoman, said the sanctions could not come too soon. Britain had been a “haven” to those who use corruption, torture and murder, she said. Moscow angered The decision drew a furious reaction from Russia, marking another low-point between the two countries.”The Russian side reserves the right to take retaliatory measures in connection with Britain’s hostile decision,” the Russian embassy in London said in a statement without elaborating.The mission said Moscow was particularly outraged by the sanctioning of top directors of Russia’s Investigative Committee and General Prosecutor’s Office as well as judges.Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo backed the move as an example of British post-Brexit diplomacy.”This sanctions regime marks the beginning of a new era for UK sanctions policy and cooperation between our two democracies,” he said in a statement. Independent sanctionsThe move follows the passage of the 2018 Sanctions Act to set up a post-Brexit sanctions regime.Britain formally left the EU earlier this year following the 2016 referendum vote backing the move.Emil Dall, a senior research fellow with the RUSI think tank, called the list “UK’s first independent sanctions”, in a briefing with journalists.The new regime of sanctions would hit London’s financial sector, the insurance industry and even UK boarding schools, where some of the individuals had sent their children, he said.Raab paid tribute to Magnitsky, who was arrested after detailing an alleged large-scale tax fraud by Russian officials. He died in jail in 2009.Khashoggi was a Saudi journalist based in the United States, whose columns were critical of the Saudi regime. He was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.Topics :last_img read more

Consultancy aims to crack Germany’s ‘closed-shop’ for cross-border IORPs

first_imgRegulatory hurdles and “over-cautiousness” have effectively made Germany a “closed shop” for institutions for occupational retirement provision (IORPs), according to Michael Ries, managing director of Ries Corporate Solutions (RCS).The Bensheim-based consultancy is currently advising an unnamed international company that wants to enter the German market.The client, with a Benelux-based administrative platform, plans to offer an IORP vehicle with the aim of “providing global services to German employers”, Ries told IPE.According to the consultancy, this solution will “effectively open the door” to the German market for foreign providers. RCS is advising on a cooperation with an insurer through which members can purchase annuities on retirement, as well as outsourcing other services to take on local administration.He said the country had been difficult to access due to the complexity of the German model and the ”over-cautiousness” of German clients.Under current regulation, the scope of activity for a Pensionsfonds – which is what a cross-border IORP qualifies as – is limited to transferring existing on-book pension reserves, or “past services”, and managing deferred compensation plans. If future rights to benefits are transferred, this cuts into the tax allowance for re-assigning parts of an employee’s salary, or Entgeltumwandlung.To cover tax-efficient contributions to the German healthcare system, foreign providers need an agreement with a CTA and an Unterstützungskasse, and they need to be able to offer services such as checking a member’s status.Furthermore, pension providers must have the know-how to administer the different options offered to German companies, including non-IORP solutions.“It means that, to enter the German market, the foreign provider must support all the technical resources necessary to manage a wide range of products, including non-IORP solutions, with the support of local experts,” Ries said.This complexity, he said, had served to “check the ambitions of non-German providers”.A further hurdle is Germany’s preference for a life-long pensions payout, or deferred compensation, rather than a one-off payout of accrued assets.“This means you have longevity risk to manage, actuarial challenges and the task of monitoring each migrant worker’s survival status,” said Ries.Commenting on why the German market was harder to penetrate than others, he said belief in the country’s supervisory structures was “very strong”.“It is difficult,” he added, “for a foreign company to gauge this feeling in the market and to understand all the regulatory hurdles.”But Ries argued that the German retirement-provision landscape was “rather backwards” when it came to transparency and fees, adding that it was still almost impossible to ask a German retirement vehicle for a total expense ratio.“So, from an objective point of view, it makes sense to want to enter a market with a low general product quality and billions of unfunded liabilities,” he said.last_img read more

SEC highlights proxy voting rules, guidance amid ESG debate

first_imgThe SEC’s output on Wednesday was “commission guidance” rather than “staff guidance”, which some commentators said meant it had greater weight. Source: SECSEC headquarters building, Washington DCThere are different interpretations of the extent to which the guidance contains new rules. Commissioner Hester Peirce, who has been critical about environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) investing, said the regulator was “not building a new regulatory regime, but… explaining the contours of an existing one to help investment advisers and proxy advisers carry out their responsibilities”.“Investment advisers” refers to fund managers in this context.Commissioner Elad Roisman, who led the SEC’s work on this issue, said the regulator’s releases “reiterate the Commission’s views on the importance of investment advisers’ voting responsibly on behalf of their clients and the applicability of our proxy rules to proxy voting advice”.According to a blog post from staff at ValueEdge Advisors, a US corporate governance advisory firm, the SEC had been under intense pressure from corporate interests, but their efforts had “almost completely failed”.“Pretty much all the SEC did was remind proxy advisers to follow the laws already on the books,” ValueEdge Advisors wrote.  Threat to shareholder rights?According to commissioner Allison Herren Lee, however, the regulator’s release contained “new substantive requirements – most notably increased issuer involvement in the proxy advisory firm’s process” and created “significant risks to the free and full exercise of shareholder voting rights”.The Council of Institutional Investors (CII), a US asset owner association, said the SEC’s interpretation about the applicability of proxy solicitation rules to proxy advisers could be the first step towards a rule proposal.“By making it clearer that the SEC sees proxy advisory firms as subject to proxy solicitation rules, this could give the SEC a stronger hook to place requirements on the firms later, which could be concerning,” it said in a statement.Ken Bertsch, CII executive director, argued that “the commission should have put the new guidance and interpretation out for public comment”.Sarah Wilson, chief executive at Minerva Analytics, a UK proxy advisory firm, said the SEC’s guidance “brings asset owners and asset managers back into the equation”.She added: “The whole lobby that was aimed at the SEC from the Chamber of Commerce…  you would have imagined that fund managers didn’t exist, by the way that they talked. It was all about shooting the messenger.”Wilson said the SEC’s guidance was a sign of regulatory harmonisation, in that it reflected the requirements laid out in the revised EU Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II).“It’s not laid out the same way, but it captures the same issues about fiduciary responsibility, transparency, accuracy,” she said.The timing of the SEC’s intervention was therefore helpful, according to Wilson, because asset managers operating in the EU had to revisit their policies anyway to meet new requirements. In a split vote the US regulator has approved guidance about asset managers’ responsibilities when using proxy advisory firms and the rules applicable to them.The Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) was divided along political party lines to make for a three-to-two vote in support of the regulator’s pronouncements. These included an “interpretation” noting the SEC’s view that providing voting advice was “solicitation” under federal law and subject to anti-fraud rules.The backdrop to the SEC’s intervention is a heated debate about the role of proxy advisory firms, which institutional investors use to help them vote shares – a typical service is the provision of voting recommendations.Critics have argued they wield too much influence, are not transparent or accountable enough, and sometimes provide low quality work.last_img read more

Preventing Injuries

first_imgIn yesterday’s blog, I talked about high school injuries–especially ACL injuries.  Why are these happening and how can we prevent them?One theory that is gaining a lot of support is the idea that the one-sport athlete is doing himself/herself no favors by allowing the body to concentrate on one sport only.  Because they play that sport 12 months a year, only certain muscles are being used constantly.  Every sport takes different muscles and the multi-sport athlete will theoretically use all the body’s muscles and keep them in equal strength.Another theory is in proper weight training.  Weight training is very beneficial if it is properly taught and supervised.  Too often athletes do training at home or alone in weight rooms and do the wrong things.  Being the “Hulk” might impress someone, but it is not beneficial to a sport.The last idea I want to throw out is proper warm-up and warm-down.  Each is equally important.  A good track athlete, for example, should warm up for at least one half hour before participation or practice.  Afterwards, you just don’t walk off and go sit down.  You need to let the body down gradually from a strenuous event.  This will not guarantee no injuries, but it will certainly improve your changes of staying healthy.last_img read more

MMH presents dangers of marijuana use

first_imgBatesville, IN—Meg Applegate with Margaret Mary Health recently gave a presentation on the dangers of marijuana use to the seventh-grade students at St. Louis School on February 6th and 11th.  Students gained a multitude of information pertaining to marijuana and participated in several activities that simulated being under the influence of the drug.   The activity the students enjoyed most was wearing the goggles that simulated driving while under the influence.  This was a great demonstration of how harmful marijuana use could be to not only the individual using it, but also those around them.last_img read more
