A consortium of five Italian pension funds has launched a search for a private equity manager for a joint portfolio worth €216m.The consortium, named ‘Progetto Iride’ (Project Iris), was set up last year with the goal of building a portfolio of alternative investments.The five investors in the consortium are industry-wide defined contribution (DC) pension funds Foncer, Fondenergia, Fondo Gomma Plastica, Pegaso and Previmoda. As of December last year, the funds had a combined €6.1bn of assets under management.The consortium has set up a website for the project, according to which the collaboration “stems from a deep analysis of the alternative investment market, as well as the conclusion that these investments are sustainable over the medium term given the funds’ positive contribution flows”. Previmoda €39m Foncer €28m Fondo Gomma Plastica €46m Fondenergia€72m “These investments are also expected to improve our yield expectations and provide a considerable contribution to performance,” the pension funds said. “In this phase of low yields, the goal of these investments is to achieve further diversification of our portfolios and sources of return, in order to strengthen the return objectives of our members”.The consortium is looking for managers investing primarily in Europe. A significant portion of the investments are expected to be in Italian companies. Managers will focus mainly on buyout and growth strategies.The consortium has earmarked €216m, split between the five funds:Source: Progetto IrideFund Allocation Pegaso €30m Managers have until 3rd May 2019 to present their bid. Further information, including the tender announcement, can be found on the project’s website.Last year IPE reported that a number of Italian industry-wide DC funds had formed the partnership with the objective of pooling resources to target investments in illiquid asset classes. Assofondipensione, the Italian association of industry-wide pension funds, known as ‘fondi negoziali’, spearheaded the initiative.At the time Giovanni Maggi, chairman of Assofondipensione, told IPE: “The association has been working on a system-wide initiative for nearly two years.“The objective is pooling assets, in order to present a stronger business case to asset managers and enhance the governance of investments. We also want to send a signal that funds can work together and play to their strengths in a complicated phase for financial markets.”Calls for collaboration between fondi negoziali have been made repeatedly in Italy in recent years by authoritative voices in the industry, including pension fund regulator Covip. “This is the first initiative of its kind and could constitute a model for future partnerships where funds can work together to create strong synergies,” Maggi said.
The four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the common three-leaf clover and is said to bring good luck when finding one.Since four-leaf clovers will be seen across the nation tomorrow on St. Patrick’s Day, we thought we would talk about the four-leaf clover becoming the emblem for the 4-H logo and its representation.Designed by O. H. Benson, superintendent of Wright County (Iowa) schools, the 4-H emblem was approved in 1911 at a meeting of club leaders in Washington, D.C.The 4-H emblem is one of the most highly recognized logos in the world. Along with the U.S. Presidential Seal, and Smokey Bear, this green four-leaf clover with a white H on each leaf, is placed in an unique category of protected emblems.The H’s signify Head, Heart, Hands and Health.At 4-H club meetings and events, members recite the Pledge of Allegiance and this 4-H pledge:I pledge my HEAD to clearer thinking,my HEART to greater loyalty,my HANDS to larger service,and my HEALTH to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world.

Puel has been advised Vardy requires some recuperation and has decided to provide it for the visit of City.
The Elders warned today that new nuclear doctrines and defence rhetoric from the United States and Russia risk a dangerous escalation of tensions that threaten the foundations of global multilateral security infrastructure. They expressed their concern at the review of nuclear posture recently announced by the United States that raised the prospect of “low-yield” nuclear weapons and a possible nuclear strike in response to a non-nuclear threat. The Elders also voiced their alarm at the claims in President Vladimir Putin’s state of the union address that Russia has developed a new array of nuclear weapons delivery systems designed to avoid detection. More fundamentally, The Elders warned that provocative statements from the two sides weakened existing nuclear non-proliferation agreements, and the prospects for their renewal – and that this sends a dangerous signal to other nuclear powers and those with aspirations to secure nuclear weapons for themselves. Kofi Annan, Chair of The Elders and former United Nations Secretary-General, said: ”The United States and Russia have a particular responsibility as the world’s largest nuclear powers to work together to maintain and strengthen the arms control agreements that have obtained from before the end of the Cold War. Any political or strategic shifts that risk lowering the threshold for nuclear war are dangerously short-sighted, especially in the current climate of geopolitical tension.” Martti Ahtisaari, Elder, Nobel Peace laureate and former President of Finland, added: “The optimism many of us felt about the prospects for significant multilateral nuclear disarmament after the end of the Cold War has sadly faded in today’s era of mistrust and rivalry between the two main nuclear superpowers. But the need for responsible action to sustain and strengthen disarmament and arms control processes is greater than ever. I urge the leaders of Russia and the United States to work together in the common interests of peace and humanity.”
PARIS — France’s prime minister is offering to meet with members of a motorists movement who have blocked roads over rising fuel taxes and held protests that caused damage to central Paris.Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on BFM television Wednesday that the protesters are expressing “a lot of legitimate things that should be heard.”The drivers may ignore the outreach. Some are calling for a new action Saturday on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, where a protest last Saturday degenerated into violence.The drivers denounce perceived elitism by President Emmanuel Macron, who failed to defuse the anger with a speech Tuesday explaining the environmental need for the tax hikes.Protesters shouted at the minister for overseas territories, Annick Girardin, as she sought to calm tensions Wednesday on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion, where demonstrations have been particularly violent.The Associated Press
