  • UK roundup: Scheme for aerospace group in £160m buy-in

    first_imgSanlam selects PTL to oversee investment pathwaysSanlam UK has selected PTL, an independent trustee and governance services provider, to assess the value for money of its new investment pathway solutions for non-advised pension drawdown clients, and their workplace pension scheme, trhoguh its governance advisory arrangement (GAA).Keith Lewis, client director and chair of the PTL GAA, said: “PTL now has a five-year track record of value for money assessment, based on a robust and comprehensive framework.”Following the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) recent policy statement, PTL has updated its methodology and terms of reference to reflect the extended remit over investment pathways, and also the need to assess environmental, social and governance factors, he said.Nick Parry, chief executive officer of Sanlam Investments & Pensions, said: “We fully support the spirit of the new regulations, and welcome the opportunity to offer our existing clients enhanced solutions that will help to deliver better outcomes.”Launched in 2015, the PTL GAA follows two FCA mandates that providers of drawdown solutions to non-advised customers create four investment pathways, and that the value for money of these pathways is assessed by an independent governance committee or GAA. The Leonardo Electronics Pension Scheme, the fund for the electronics division of the aerospace, defence and security company, has completed a £160m (€180m) buy-in deal with Just Group; Aon advised the scheme trustees.This is the first buy-in for the scheme in a move to reduce risk while still offering accrual of new benefits to active employees, Aon said.The deal covered all pensioners in the company’s £1bn UK pension scheme for its electronics, defence and security systems division with non-trivial annual pensions – 1,253 in total.Mike Nixon, head of pensions at Leonardo UK, said: “It’s great news that we have secured the benefits of our pensioners with Just Group and that we were able to complete the transaction despite the turbulence in markets.” He said the scheme is still open to accrual, but its strong funding position meant ”we have been able to lock down this risk at an early stage”.Michael Walker, principal consultant at Aon, said: “This complex deal started in late 2019 when markets were stable and completed in late March at an especially testing time in the financial markets.”Just Group has recently completed two other buy-in deals with the pension scheme for NG Bailey, an engineering group.last_img read more

  • JFO Executes North Sea Projects

    first_imgJFO has delivered subsea cutting projects for Subsea 7 on behalf of BP and Premier Oil in the North Sea.The projects were executed by JFO’s hydraulic shear (the 1950Te) which is affectionately nick-named ‘Tiny’.Anything but small, Tiny is 4.5 meters long, by 1.2 meters wide and 2.2 meters high, with a jaw which can cut pipes or other subsea infrastructure over 1 meter in diameter.These versatile tools can be deployed by both remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) or divers and can be hung either horizontally or vertically from the certified lifting points, thereby allowing for access in the most challenging of situations.The BP project, which was completed at the beginning of May, involved the recovery of flexible pipelines to the west of Shetland in Scotland. Tiny is designed to be deployed from a vessel and lowered by a crane to depths of 3,000 meters and used to cut sections of pipe, which are then removed from the seabed by a 20Te Universal Grab and brought up to the surface on special recovery subsea baskets.For the Premier Oil job, JFO was called in to work on the decommissioning of subsea wellhead structures at the Balmoral field 200 kilometers north east of Aberdeen in 140 meters of water. Working with Premier Oil, the JFO team developed a bespoke solution that would enable JFO’s topside equipment to work with Premier Oil’s own subsea kit, using Tiny to get the job done. Tiny and the team managed 32 cuts and cleared the seabed of all scrap material – a huge undertaking.JFO has also just created a new hydraulic shear which is said to be bigger, stronger and more powerful than Tiny. Dubbed ‘Little Nipper’ the cutting tool is 6 meters long, 1.5 meters wide and 1.8 meters high and has a jaw capacity of 1.2 meters. This new product means JFO now has the largest fleet of hydraulic ROV/diver operated shears in the world.last_img read more

  • Wenger names Man City among his favourites to win Champions League

    first_img “When you are playing a match against Atalanta or Atletico Madrid, anything can happen,” he told Europe 1. “But for me, Manchester City and PSG are the two favourites in terms of their potential.” On PSG’s chances, Wenger added: “I feel they are a little bit less strong than three or four years ago. In terms of their holistic set-up, they were maybe a bit more complete three to four years ago, in all positions. “The competition was stronger as well. But I think that there has been a general decline in the quality of European football at the very, very, very highest level and they are still amongst the two or three best in Europe. read also; FIFA’s ambassador Wenger dreams of returning to coaching “We shouldn’t be looking for false reasons why PSG have not yet won the Champions League.
