Resaver group eyes personal pension offering for researchers

first_imgThe level of interest in the project appeared “quite reasonable”, according to Filip Hemeryck, cross border pension fund manager and senior consulting actuary at Aon Hewitt in Belgium, which advises Resaver.He said this was based on the number of downloads of the pre-qualification questionnaire, and taking into account that Resaver only carried out limited publicity of the tender.The Belgium-based organisation is primarily targeting mobile individuals who work for a European education or research organisation but do not have an employment contract. This means they cannot join the pension fund it has set up for researchers in different European countries, or most occupational retirement schemes in general.Resaver envisages the targeted private pension products also being available to employees with an employment contract, however.Resaver’s pan-European pension fund came into operation in early 2017.The Resaver consortium launched its private pensions initiative in anticipation of it taking time before EU regulation on a Pan-European Personal Pension Product (PEPP) would be launched.It said its initiative “can be considered as a first step up towards a Pan-European Personal Pension Product helping researchers to ensure easy access to a (private) pensions wherever they go”.The European Commission laid out its proposal for a regulation on a PEPP in June and it is due to be considered by the European Parliament in the first half of this year.The Resaver consortium said it would take several years before the PEPP regulation was fully implemented across the European Economic Area.Its expectation is that the products provided by any successful applicants would be the existing local market pension products.The organisation is aiming to partner with one provider in each of 31 countries covered by the tender. Its role would be strictly limited to facilitating the access to the products through the existing Resaver portal; the personal pension product would be contracted directly between the individual and the selected provider.Resaver expects providers would apply a competitive fee to individual researchers opting for a given product, and that they pay the consortium a fixed annual fee, per country, to cover the its administration costs.Resaver is supported by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme. The organisation behind the Resaver cross-border pension scheme for academic researchers is seeking to facilitate access to personal pension products for such workers.Its initiative is in the first place aimed at freelance researchers.Resaver Consortium is looking for insurance companies and other financial institutions willing to offer third pillar products to individuals working for organisations that are members of the organisation.The original deadline – to fill in a pre-qualification questionnaire – was 26 December but a few days before that date it was extended to the end of January.last_img read more

Developer reveals reason why there’s no pool or gym in complex

first_img The project has been specifically designed as an inner city sanctuary, and has foregone a pool to reduce noise that would disturb peace and tranquility. There is still the sanctuary of green space to enjoy the sunshine. Dwell Newstead has towers rising 14 floors, with the three, four and five-bedroom skyhomes on levels nine to 13. Construction started in early 2018, and completion is expected in November. Dwell Newstead offers the opportunity to work with the developer to tailor your apartment to your requirements.The two Dwell towers are 20m apart – more than most suburban neighbours. All with an aluminium facade that does not need constant repainting, buyers can expect lower maintenance and body corporate fees.Mr Di Bartolomeo said during the process of designing a new home, buyers would have constant support from the head of the variations team, to assist with customisation and streamline the process.“The diversity and extensive flexibility of this offering meant a recent buyer was able to purchase two apartments on consecutive levels and join them via an internal staircase,” he said.“This unique ability offers two major benefits for homeowners. “Firstly, it allows the buyer to design a fully personalised residence to suit their immediate needs. “Secondly, since the new skyhome is unique it represents a sound marketing advantage if and when the owner decides to sell, maximising capital growth.” Dwell Newstead offers the opportunity to work with the developer to tailor your apartment to your requirements. This includes colour palette, finishes, appliances and even reconfiguration of the apartment where practical to achieve a one-off apartment that suits your lifestyle. Photo: SuppliedA Brisbane developer has promised off-the-plan buyers apartments more than 130sq m bigger than the average size of new land in the city.Despite having no pool or gym in the building, in addition to the 600sq m floorplan, Dibcorp will give buyers the chance to customise their skyhomes and allow internal spaces to be resized within Dwell Newstead. Dwell Newstead features two separate towers.Dibcorp managing director Franco Di Bartolomeo said one of the challenges buyers encountered in today’s property market was finding an apartment that suited all their needs. Buyers can work with architects and designers to modify elements for their new apartment. From simple tweaks such as changing the colour scheme, tiles and appliances to creating an entirely new apartment layout by moving internal walls, changing room positions, and even combining multiple apartments together.The flexibility to truly customise an off-the-plan apartment gives buyers the chance to have a unique home that reflects their needs and lifestyle. “Customising apartments is becoming more of a trend in the luxury apartments market, with buyers looking for a home with their personal imprint,” Mr Di Bartolomeo said.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago“The selected material palettes of marble, timber, stone and glass are blended to complement any interior design preferences as ostentatious or as subtle as you wish. “Being both the developer and builder, we’ve found that this approach is a deal-maker for buyers, specifically for owner-occupiers, who look for a white canvas to transform into a custom-made skyhome.” Dwell’s unique “create your own” feature has attracted owner occupiers, downsizers, and young couples who could not find this level of customisation in any other project in the area,” Mr Di Bartolomeo said.last_img read more

Pope Francis meets his predecessor

first_img Share 41 Views   no discussions Share FaithInternationalLifestylePrint Pope Francis meets his predecessor by: – March 23, 2013 Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet Newly elected Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus BenedictNewly elected Pope Francis has met his predecessor for lunch, the first time such a meeting has been possible for more than 600 years.Pope Francis was flown by helicopter to Castel Gandolfo for the private lunch with Pope Emeritus Benedict.Benedict has lived at the lakeside castle south of Rome since last month, when he became the first pope in six centuries to resign, citing ill health. Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio was elected to succeed him on 13 March.No known precedentThere was no official communique on the results of the Pope’s brief lunchtime visit to Castel Gandolfo, says the BBC’s David Willey in Rome.On the agenda, some delicate handover details, including a top secret document prepared by the former pope on last year’s scandal involving leaked documents, our correspondent adds.The new head of the Catholic Church is usually elected after the death of his predecessor, and there is no public record of any previous meeting between an incumbent pope and a former pope.In 1294, former hermit Celestine V resigned after five months as pope. Boniface VIII was elected days later, and had his predecessor imprisoned. Celestine was dead within a year.In contrast, Pope Francis has spoken warmly of his predecessor.One of his first acts as Pope was to call Benedict at Castel Gandolfo, where the former pontiff had been following proceedings on television.The pope emeritus is expected to stay on at the papal summer residence until new accommodation being prepared for him inside the walls of Vatican City is ready at the end of April. For his part, Pope Francis will begin the Church’s most important liturgical season on Sunday with a Palm Sunday Mass in St Peter’s Square. He will then lead six more liturgies during the week, culminating with the Easter Sunday Mass and Urbi et Orbi blessing. New styleThe new Pope chose the name Francis in honour of St Francis of Assisi – the 13th Century Italian saint who spurned a life of luxury to work with the poor. He has called for the Roman Catholic Church to be closer to ordinary people, especially the poor and disadvantaged.And, only 10 days into his pontificate, he has made some subtle but significant changes in the lifestyle of the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, says our correspondent. He dresses very simply, preferring to wear plain black shoes under a simple white habit rather than the red leather loafers and ermine-trimmed cape worn by his predecessor. The first Latin American Pope spurned a special car to take a bus with his cardinals after he was elected, and insisted on returning to his Rome hotel the next day to pay his own bill.And Pope Francis places himself on the same level as his guests, rather than greeting them from a throne on an elevated platform, which is seen as a powerful gesture after centuries of Vatican pomp.The former archbishop of Buenos Aires has also started inviting guests to his early morning Mass – including Vatican gardeners, street sweepers, kitchen staff and maids working at the hotel where he is currently staying.BBC News Sharelast_img read more

Moyes relaxed over summer dealings

first_imgDavid Moyes insists his Manchester United recruitment drive remains on track despite missing out on Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara. United had been heavily linked with the Spain Under-21 star, who seemed certain to join the Red Devils after deciding he needed to leave the Nou Camp in order to further his World Cup ambitions. Instead, Thiago’s former boss Pep Guardiola has stepped in, with the player now looking certain to join Bayern Munich. Despite the disappointment, Moyes remains resolute in his squad-building strategy. “I never said at any time he was,” said Moyes, when asked if the Spain Under-21 star remained a target. “There are people we are actively chasing and we are happy with the way things are going.” It does appear Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay has agreed to join United though, with reports claiming a transfer is imminent, although there has been no official word from either club. Moyes has his first match to focus on, against Singha All Stars on Saturday, although the subject of a departed player, Wayne Rooney, remains high on the agenda, much to the Scot’s frustration. Rooney may be back home in England, his pre-season tour ended after less than 24 hours with a grade one hamstring tear that will keep him on the sidelines for up to three weeks, but the questions about his future keep on coming. In the latest instance the trigger was a comment from Jose Mourinho, who landed in Bangkok on Friday and took even less time than Rooney was in the country to make his presence felt. Whilst, declared Jose, it was not proper to talk about the player of another club, neither was he prepared to stay silent. “You know me,” said Mourinho. “It is not in my character to speak to you with a little bit of hypocrisy. I always say what I think and, being fast and direct, I like him very much.” Moyes was weary of repeating himself over Rooney. “Unless I was speaking double Dutch, I have said ‘Wayne Rooney is not for sale’,” he said. “I have really covered all the things on Wayne.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
