FSA bans five insurance execs and hands out £150,000 fine over fraud

first_imgTuesday 17 August 2010 7:57 pm KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp THE Financial Services Authority (FSA) has banned five individuals in relation to insurance fraud and given one director a near-record fine of £150,000.The FSA said yesterday that the five insurance executives whom it had banned had shown complete disregard for the interests of their customers.Andrew Jeffery, a director of Jeffery Flanders Limited, was fined £150,000 for failing to put in place adequate insurance policies and knowingly forging documents. The FSA described it as one of the largest ever fines against an insurance broker.Barrie Duncan Aspden of Orion Direct Limited and Peppercom was banned for using customer money to create a new company, meaning that customers were at risk of being uninsured because their premiums were being misused.Aspden’s wife Melanie and his sister-in-law Gaenor Clayton were also banned, along with Orion executive Paul Willment, for their roles in the affair. Willment was fined £50,000.The FSA has sought to toughen up its act in the wake of the financial crisis, and last month it handed out a £320,000 fine to the former finance director of Northern Rock, the first British victim of the credit crunch.Margaret Cole, director of enforcement and financial crime at the FSA, said: “Individuals holding a role such as that of director must act with integrity as well as with the necessary skill, care and diligence”.

Its third quarter trading update said it saw “further strong performance” in the three months to September, despite relatively low transaction volumes and a weaker pricing environment.Broker Finncap forecasts-pre tax profits of £1.1m for the end of 2010.The franchise chain’s existing offices grew property sales by 42 per cent year-on-year from reduced levels. Six new offices were opened this year, including one in Highbury.Chief executive Dominic Agace said London remains a prime property market and Winkworth’s best performing offices were those that “leverage off London.”Winkworth has 58 London offices and is “expanding into markets that look to London for their buyers,” he said.Agace expects prices in prime markets to rise by five per cent next year due to low interest rates and a weak sterling.Currency weakness is making London attractive to international buyers, who now make up 70 per cent of applicants to buy London properties, he said.A supply shortage in the rental market, fuelled by a lack of buy-to-let mortgage approvals, is expected to increase rents by five per cent in 2011. whatsapp Tags: NULL Share Monday 22 November 2010 7:23 pm whatsapplast_img read more

Mattel said in a statement it remained committed to expanding the brand in China, and that the six-storey outlet had raised Barbie’s profile in the country. The shop opened in March 2009 as Barbie celebrated her 50th birthday, with Mattel hoping to expand sales in new regions to offset flagging turnover in its traditional markets during the recession. The firm has not released sales figures for the concept store or given a reason for its closure. Electronics retailer Best Buy last month scaled back its ambitions in the Chinese market.

Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Capital gains from FTSE 100 shares are looking good right now. Because of last year’s slump, there is a strong base effect at work when share price increases are calculated. This can make it harder to figure out the real performers.  So I am now considering longer-term returns to get a better sense of promising stocks.Based on this calculation, FTSE 100 investment company 3i (LSE: III) is one stock that I think could grow my investment significantly over the next five years. Over the past year alone, its share price is up 40%. It is a strong number in itself, but may look smaller than gains for many other stocks. However, that is only because it bounced back faster after last year’s crash. It was back to pre-pandemic levels, even before the stock market rally started last November. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…3i posts good resultsThis is for good reason. Its investment returns were £1.7bn on opening shareholder funds for the year ending March 31, an increase of 22% from the year before. Its private equity business showed strong growth of 30%, while the infrastructure segment also showed healthy growth of 16%. The company’s returns were buoyed because of its investments in e-commerce, discount retailers, and health and hygiene companies, which accelerated during the pandemic. It is confident that it is “well positioned” for the next year as well, despite continued global economic uncertainty. I think the cross-geographical nature of the company’s investments also work in its favour right now, when there is uneven growth across country economies.  Decent dividend yieldFor a growth stock, I also like that it pays a decent dividend. Its current dividend yield is 3.1% and in a positive for income investors, it intends to either maintain or grow dividends every year. Can it maintain its returns?Despite the buoyant results though, I am cautious of whether 3i will be able to maintain its returns. The year before, it had shown a far more muted 3% return on shareholders’ funds. Further, drilling into the nitty gritties of its returns reveals that in 2021, 3i got a fillip from its investment in Action, a Dutch value-for-money retailer with operations across seven European countries, including France, Germany and Italy. It saw a healthy 10% revenue growth last year, and plans to roll out 300 stores this year. This investment alone increased the value of its investments by over £1bn. Reliance on one company to generate future returns can be a risky proposition, in my view.My takeaway for the FTSE 100 stockThat said, I cannot overlook 3i’s strong performance over the years either. Especially since stock markets are likely to stay strong and the economy is expected to take off now, I think it may indeed be positioned to perform well. Even if economic weakness continues, its diversified private equity investments, may make continued gains. I would also keep an eye out for infrastructure policies that can be positive for its funds. On balance, I think even with fluctuations in its returns, it is quite likely that 3i will deliver strong returns to shareholders. It is a buy for me. Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 26th May, 2021 | More on: III See all posts by Manika Premsinghlast_img read more

Las Vegas Sevens: Amor planning to shake England up

first_imgSA: Mike Ellery had a great tournament in Dubai. Unfortunately he was injured and missed the following week’s tournament in South Africa, so it’s great to have him back. And Marcus Watson was also in great form in our last outings.Mitch (Tom Mitchell) is becoming a great playmaker and leader in our squad. I’ve shared the captaincy around a bit, and Tom Powell did a great job for us at the last few tournaments, but Mitch could potentially stay in the role for a while. At the moment I’m naming a squad tournament by tournament, because I want the guys to feel that pressure to perform every time they step on the pitch. But the long-term goal is to have a steady, settled captain.One to watch: Watson makes a break in London last seasonRW: Why did you leave Mat Turner and John Brake out of the squad this time?  SA: Mat did well in South Africa, and he’s working on a number of areas of his game along with everybody else. But he’s been in South Africa for a few weeks sorting out his girlfriend’s visa, and because he’s not been training I’ve chosen to reward the other guys in the squad.John Brake has an excellent attitude, but others have just edged him in training. In addition, I felt like Crackers deserved his opportunity, a hugely experienced player who will be valuable in Las Vegas.RW: What changes would you like to make to England’s sevens programme?SA: Every nation is stepping up and our programme has been evolving for the last three months. I’d like the guys to be here and training together full time (Monday to Friday instead of three days per week). The more time spent together, the more their understanding and communication with each other will improve.RW: Should sevens be used as a development tool for 15s, or should it stand alone?SA: I don’t believe sevens should stand alone. We’ve got some talented players in our squad who may well go on to play 15s one day, and although there will always be some specialist sevens players, I don’t think they should be pigeonholed. Using sevens to develop players is a proven model used around the world. It depends slightly on the position, but as a rule sevens players are excellent in broken field and phase play attack, and good decision makers.RW: Tell us about your new backroom staff. Powerhouse: Mike Ellery has recovered from injury for the Las Vegas Sevens, but can he help England take the title?By Bea Asprey, Rugby World Staff Writer SIMON AMOR is three tournaments in to his tenure as England Sevens head coach, and he has already started to make some changes to the squad. We caught up with the former IRB Sevens Player of the Year to find out a bit more about the team, and what plans he has for England.RW: What are England’s strengths, and how would you like them to improve?SA: Traditionally England have great pace, and they’re very good in broken field. I’d like them to improve defence and become more direct, physically, in the contact. I’d like them to be more confrontational.Sevens is about doing the basics at world-class level, so I also want everyone to improve on that. It sounds very simple, but there’s a lot in the quality of a catch, pass or tackle.Skipper: Mitchell will be captain for the first time in VegasRW: Have you changed the way you train to mirror that?SA: We do more contact work now. These guys aren’t playing 15s, so they’re not doing contact week in, week out. The breakdown is so important, as is their tackle technique.There’s always a risk of injury when you do contact work in training and they do pick up bumps and bruises, but rugby is a contact sport, and of course you try to limit that. There’s also an element that the boys can become more body-hardened by doing the contact work and in addition, we have a brilliant medical team working hard to keep the boys fit.RW: Which team is setting the benchmark on the circuit?SA: New Zealand. As a team they’ve never had out and out pace, but they are good physically and their ability to read the game, to feel it, is outsanding. They also have a lot of good decision-makers.There’s no culture of sevens in the UK, so it takes time for guys to get the feel of how to create space, and manipulate it. We try to teach it by doing a lot of repetitions, in mini games in training.RW: Which England players should we look out for in Las Vegas? SA: We’re ambitious, and we want to give our players the world’s best support with the best people in that team. Dan Howells has just joined us from Wasps, to head up our strength and conditioning, and Damian McGrath has joined me as the assistant coach. Scott Drawer, who’s just joined the RFU, will also be helping us from time to time.We want to link our strength and conditioning with the rugby in training a bit more. If we do our rugby training under fatigue, it’ll develop the boys’ decision making and also intensify the session – just like the situation you’d get at a tournament. LONDON, ENGLAND – MAY 11: Marcus Watson of England breaks away from the tackle of Joaquin Diaz Bonilla of Argentina during the Marriottt London Sevens – Day One at Twickenham on May 11, 2013 in London, England.

Comedy duo take on Christchurch streets with outrageous Richie McCaw sign

first_imgFriday May 2, 2008 Comedy duo take on Christchurch streets with outrageous Richie McCaw sign In this morning’s game between the Sharks and the Crusaders in Christchurch, we saw All Blacks and home captain Richie McCaw being yellow carded for a professional foul deep in his half with the Sharks on attack. ADVERTISEMENTIt reminded me of this hilarious skit by the New Zealand comedy duo of Bill and Ben on Pulp Sport, the low budget sports skit comedy show that has received rave reviews from all who’ve seen it.This particular skit plays on the common belief around the world that Richie McCaw plays the line so close that he is in fact cheating. Most of that comes from the fact that McCaw is so good at what he does, but that debate will rage on for years to come.As you’ll see here, losing the coin toss and dressing up in a Springbok jersey while holding a sign like this in Christchurch is not a good idea.Time: 04:03 mins Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 30 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Wales hang on to beat Samoa at the Millennium Stadium

first_imgSaturday Nov 14, 2009 Wales hang on to beat Samoa at the Millennium Stadium Wales narrowly beat Samoa 17-13 in a bruising encounter with a tense finale at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Friday night.Wales scored early thanks to a try by wing Leigh Halfpenny, but the visitors pegged them back in the second half, and scored an intercept try through Seilala Mapasua which brought the scores to within four points.“We wanted to be more ruthless in our approach, but unfortunately we werent,” said Wales coach Gatland. “We created a lot of chances and 11 line breaks to their two and should have put the game away comfortably.“But our finishing simply wasn’t clinical enough. We have to learn from our mistakes and in the first-half we kept kicking the ball away.“We felt physically that if we kept playing with tempo their forwards would struggle and tire later on. It was a very frustrating game and we didnt get any real momentum going.”“The game should have been out of sight by the time they got their interception try – that was a 14 point try because if he hadnt have caught it we would probably have scored,” said Gatland.“It was a little bit too close for comfort in the end and we put ourselves under pressure. But we have come away with a win.”Samoa can be proud of their effort, and will head to Paris next weekend on a high as they will take on France.“The boys can be very proud of themselves for pushing a top tier nation so close,” said Samoa captain George Stowers.“It was a case of so near but our performance showed we deserve more games against the big teams especially after just a few days together.“For many of us it was the first time we had played Wales so this was a great heads up for where we are against the best teams.“Against France next week we have to be smart, keep our discipline and play for the full 80 minutes as well as putting in the big hits.” Time: 08:18ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Consider High Oleic Soybeans in 2020 to Add Premium to Your…

first_img High-oleic-2020-advantageKevin WilsonFarmers are now focused on the upcoming harvest, a season that has already begun for some, but while looking for ways to improve margins next crop year, the soybean checkoff suggests high oleic soybeans for those in 13 states, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.High oleic varieties continue to offer competitive premiums to farmers with minimal management adjustments. Indiana’s Kevin Wilson, United Soybean Board farmer-leader from Cass County, understands the profit opportunities with high oleic soybeans.“We’ve been planting them about six or seven years,” Wilson said. “Basically, it’s the same bean with the same performance, but this bean has an oil that has a more desirable characteristic that really helps the end user, the customers such as restaurant chains, grocery stores and food companies as well. It’s added more premium on the final end, so it’s been a good thing for us.”Management of high oleic varieties is similar to commodity soybeans. Farmers store the beans separately for delivery just like they would a conventional crop.“We were storing beans anyhow. So, we store them, and then they have a call option where they take them in the winter at different times. We just stored them like we stored the regular beans. We had a delivery location, ADM Frankfort, which is not too far from us, so it just all fit really, really good.”Depending on processor locations and participating elevators in their area, farmers can take advantage of the premiums offered by high oleic soybeans next year.“Well, there are two or three different options,” Wilson explains. “We have the storage, so we store them and then we bring them in, and so we’re offered a premium. Our premium runs around 50 cents a bushel. There are other fall delivery locations around. I think next year there’s going to be some more probably in Ohio, as well, and there may be more in other states. Once you locate someone that will take them during harvest, and then you’ll still get a premium. It will vary depending on how far you have to deliver them.”Stay up to date with the latest information from the United Soybean Board at www.unitedsoybean.org.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Consider High Oleic Soybeans in 2020 to Add Premium to Your Price SHARE Consider High Oleic Soybeans in 2020 to Add Premium to Your Price By Andy Eubank – Sep 24, 2019 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleU.S. Dairy: Japan Trade Agreement Could Leave Dairy BehindNext articleU.S. Biofuel Industry is Still Waiting Andy Eubanklast_img read more

The event included a complimentary breakfast as well as networking opportunities for TCU business students.“Dean Erekson told us about this great opportunity to hear about someone successful in business,” said Kyle Whelpley, a finance and entrepreneurial management major. “I want to run my own company one day, so I’m excited to hear from someone who’s been very successful with what they do and to get some advice with how I can be successful in the future.”“I’m excited to hear about some of the principles we’ve talked about and how that’s related to Dina’s business and how she’s been able to grow her business based off of ethical practices,” said Kate Benuska, an entrepreneurial management major.Dwyer-Owens attributes her personal success, as well as the success of the Dwyer Group, to a code of values originally developed by her father.“The thing he really drove home with us as employees and as his children, with six kids in our family all raised in the business, initially, was that we’ve got to lead with values,” Dwyer-Owens said. “I think that it is the true foundation for success at the Dwyer Group.”The Dwyer Group code of values is embodied in the acronym “R.I.C.H.” which stands for respect, integrity, customer focus and having fun in the process.“Living rich is not about money,” Dwyer-Owens said. “These values are really about how you treat people. We think that when you treat people with respect and dignity, it builds wealthy relationships, so I do say that living rich creates wealth, but that wealth first comes in relationships.”Students said they liked Dwyer-Owen’s focus on values and the talk she gave.Marketing major Ellen Keim said she really enjoyed listening to Dwyer-Owens.“I loved getting to hear a strong, successful woman speaker that adheres her company to a high ethical standard through defined values,” Keim said.Benuska said she loved listening to Dina Dwyer because the speaker was genuinely passionate about the role of ethics in her business.Dwyer-Owens said her biggest piece of advice for students is, “whether you’re going to start your own business or you’re going to go work for someone else, always remember who you are at your core and always work hard to be the best version of yourself.” Sophia is a senior broadcast journalism and communication studies double major.
