Having funds to invest right now is a fortunate position to be in. In most cases, this is likely due to a sensible investment strategy that has meant not putting all your eggs in one basket at once. If you are in this position, you can now be selective in looking at where best to deploy the cash to hopefully obtain the best return.Willis Owen have just released data showing the best and worst performing sectors across the investment universe in March. This period makes for very interesting reading as it was a month of severe declines in global stock markets. Not only that, but virtually all other asset classes also decreased, as investors rushed to safe havens.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…There are opportunities to make money amid all this, if you have a spare £1,000 or so to invest.UK GiltsThe best performing sector in the investment space last month was UK Gilts. Investing in these UK government bonds would have returned +1.63% last month. I wrote about the benefits of including some bonds in an investment portfolio recently.In summary, bonds and stocks tend to have a negative correlation. This means that when the prices of stocks are falling, the prices of bonds usually go up. The jargon-free explanation behind this is that investors tend to pull money out of equity markets when times are bad and buy bonds instead, as they are seen as a safer investment.For a stock investor like me, I do not want to get too involved in bonds. However, this data and the performance we are seeing is making me look to allocate a small amount of funds into bonds. This should help me weather any further stock market storms by hopefully generating some profit from the bonds.UK smaller companiesUnfortunately, the worst performing sector seen last month was smaller listed companies in the UK. The report noted that “smaller companies in particular are a focal point for pain at present as they are likely to find it harder to survive the shutdown and subsequent collapse in economic activity.”The takeaway from this that I am going to continue with trusted FTSE 100 names to invest in. While it is not a simple case of being too big to fail, larger firms generally have more power to manage cash flow. This can be either from larger credit lines offered from banking partners, or from cutting dividends due to be paid to shareholders.Whatever you like to pin the exact reason on, the numbers speak for themselves. Smaller UK firms lost 22.56% last month on average. Some may ask if this is a good buying opportunity, which is a valid question. In my opinion, there is further pain ahead for the economy in general, so I would steer towards allocating some funds to bonds, and some to large-cap FTSE 100 firms.

Cuban U.N. Ambassador Anayansi Rodríguez speaks at Friendship Caravan meeting

first_imgNew York — The 29th Cuba Friendshipment Caravan kicked off here on June 16 at the Bronx Art Space. Energized by a greeting from Cuba’s U.N. ambassador, Anayansi Rodríguez Camejo and a 30-minute video about U.S. students at Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine, the gathering generously contributed nearly $2,000 to continue the work of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization. “Tear down walls and build bridges” is the caravan’s 2018 theme.Continuing its challenge to the U.S. ban on travel to Cuba, Pastors for Peace will fly to the historic heart of the Cuban Revolu­tion, the southeastern city of Santiago. But first it will carry out a 10-day blitz of informational and fundraising meetings in 40 cities across the U.S., from June 22 to July1. For a meeting in your area, see ifconews.org/2018-caravan-map-and-events.In Cuba, the caravanistas plan to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the July 26, 1953, attack on former dictator Fulgencio Batista’s Moncada Barracks. They will pay respects to Fidel Castro, the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, at his final resting place in Santa Ifigenia Cemetery, as well as visit the town of Caimanera in Guantánamo Province, near the U.S.-occupied naval base and infamous torture prison.

Path paved for ‘most dangerous stretch of road’

first_imgFacebook IT has been a bugbear of area councillors and deputies alike, but after years of lobbying for the cause, funding has finally been allocated for a footpath on the Golf Links Road.Limerick TD Kieran O’Donnell has long campaigned for what he considers to be one of the main infrastructural issues in the Castletroy area, and says that work will begin on constructing the footpath before the end of this year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “A footpath has long been overdue on the Golf Links Road connecting the existing footpath on the Dublin Road to just across from  Castletroy Heights”, the deputy told the Limerick Post.“Since 2004, one of my main priorities has been to get an agreement for a footpath as it is one of the elements that is greatly lacking in the area.“This is a very busy road with a lot of traffic passing through. There are many elderly people living in the area and the road is the main link to UL and the Dublin Road so is very dangerous”.Deputy O’Donnell said that a wall would be built alongside the footpath where a ditch currently lies, and that the project will be funded by development levies. “The construction of the path went for tender in 2007 but didn’t go ahead, which was enormously disappointing. But now we’ve been given a clear indication that work will begin before the end of the year with a view to a completion towards the end of the year/ early 2011.“The acquisition of the footpath and wall will be of benefit to all and it is vital that this takes place”.Castletroy Cllrs Mary Jackman and Michael Sheahan have also been concerned about the danger for pedestrians on the road and had been hoping for a release of funding for a footpath from the development levies which were said to be “frozen”.“Finally, we have got positive news for the Golf Links Road”, Cllr Jackman told the Limerick Post.“This is the most dangerous section of road for pedestrians in the environs. Since I was elected I have been trying to get this done and the release of money is very welcome”.Work on construction of the footpath is expected to begin this autumn. Cllr. Michael Sheahan,  Kieran O’Donnell, TD,  Fine Gael, Deputy Spokesperson on Finance with Special Responsibility for FOI, Procurement Reform & OPW and Cllr. Mary Jackman are actively seeking the construction on this section of the Golf Links road.

Board must take lead on pensions

first_imgBoard must take lead on pensionsOn 19 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Pensions should not just be left to a specialist department, claimed aBritish Airways pensions manager at a CBI conference. Jenny Rosser told delegates that employers spend too much money on pensionsto allow them to be the sole responsibility of a specialised department. She said, “I ask, should employers leave pensions up to the pensionsdepartment? I think this is wrong, despite the fact that this is the way thatwe do it at BA. “Pensions cost employers a lot of money and because of this they shouldbe involved and communicate this to their employees.” Rosser said one of the reasons why the board should take the lead on pensionsis that employees have unrealistic expectations of the worth of their pensions.”We issued a card to our employees with contributions on one axis andhow much they could receive on the other. “Seventy per cent of our employees where shocked at how low theirpensions will be.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
