Mature single women are wealthier than mature single men, StatsCan finds IE Staff Most Canadians aren’t planning for long-term care costs: survey Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Surging bond yields take a bite out of Canadian DB plans Share this article and your comments with peers on social media PŮR says RRSP investors, DC plan participants and those considering the proposed Pooled Registered Pension Plan (PRPP) program can benefit. “We believe most people would welcome a reliable income in retirement similar to what a civil servant’s defined benefit pension provides” says Mark Yamada, president and CEO of PŮR Investing Inc., the paper’s co-author. “Obviously individuals and their employers have to fund the plan rather than taxpayers, and there aren’t any guarantees. However, simply targeting a level of replacement income and having professionals managing their investments would be welcomed by many who are currently required to do it themselves.” Government plans pay annual retirement benefits equal to about 70% of an employee’s average best three or five years of employment income, Yamada explains. “We started with the target date or lifecycle fund and developed strategies to make it better. These funds automatically become more conservative as retirement approaches, making them an easy one-decision choice for investors,” says Ioulia Tretiakova, director of quantitative strategies for PŮR, and lead author of the report. “However, they all fall short in dealing with market risk and personal goals.” PŮR’s solution was to switch the target date funds to risk-based from age based using a “dynamic glide path strategy”. This strategy assumes less risk if progress relative to the goal is ahead of target and more risk if one needs to catch up. Based on 40 years of 9% annual contributions, using historical returns, PŮR determined that personal risk-based target date funds have a 97% frequency of replacing 70% of income for a minimum of 20 years in retirement. Age-based target date funds with a “fixed equity glidepath”, offered by such firms as Fidelity, Vanguard and T. Rowe Price, have only a 52% frequency of achieving the same results. PŮR says that through technology, a personal target date fund for each plan member is possible, making the approach suitable not only for group and individual retirement plans but also for the modern worker who is likely to move through a series of jobs and employers before retiring. Keywords Pensions, Retirement, Target-date funds Related news Toronto-based PŮR Investing Inc. says personalized risk-based target date funds would improve investment outcomes for the 80% of Canadians who are not members of a public sector pension plan. In a research paper published in the Rotman International Journal of Pension Management, PŮR offers strategies for making retirement investing easier, more effective and more personalized than anything currently available in the defined contribution pension universe.

The regulator said that developments since the existing rule was adopted back in 2001, such as the increasing use of derivatives, impact the effectiveness of the rule.“The request for comment solicits information to determine whether the rule continues to accomplish its purpose to protect investors and help ensure they are not misled by a fund’s name,” the commission said.“We are looking to investors and market participants for input on how our framework can be improved to help ensure that fund names inform and do not mislead investors,” SEC chairman Jay Clayton said in a statement.“This request for comment is another important step in our efforts to better inform and protect Main Street investors and improve the investor experience,” Clayton added.The SEC’s request will go out for a 60-day comment period.

Tradition dictates that, following the launch of any fantastically priced and lunatically powered hypercar, the next thing said high-end manufacturer does is sign a tie-in deal with an equally deluxe watch brand.From here, the silks are pulled from a limited-edition chronograph with a six-figure price tag and sub-500-unit production run, one that’s often made in a hermetically-sealed chamber so that the intricate hands – often featuring fibres from the corresponding hypercar’s bodyshell – will be accurate to within an eighth of a millisecond.A carbon-fibre display case is then provided ‘for free’ to protect the featherweight and individually stamped casing from being damaged during its bi-annual sojourns out of the sock drawer.

In a break with tradition – somewhat ironic given how heavily the new Divo was inspired by the company’s 1929 Targa Floria winner – CEO Stephan Winkelmann has just signed a deal with Grand Est neighbour and champagne specialists Carbon to commemorate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary next year.To mark the occasion, Carbon has unveiled a brand-new vintage – ƎB.01 – that combines 90 per cent Chardonnay and 10 per cent Pinot Noir. The bespoke blend dates back to grapes from 2002, owing to “the perfect weather conditions for good ripeness and flavour concentration” in the region that year, apparently.No official price has been revealed for ƎB.01 yet, but expect it to be ruinous. There is also no official word on whether this new Bugatti-Carbon merger will inspire a new limited-edition watch down the line.By the way, if the name ‘Carbon’ sounds strangely familiar, that might be because the French company signed a deal with Formula 1 in 2017 to become the series’ official supplier. Since then, each podium celebration has featured three $3,000 magnum bottles with gold, silver and bronze labels respectively for the 1st-, 2nd– and 3rd-placed drivers.

It has also sought that this provision comes into force from the next academic session.“The move is aimed at providing practical experience to future specialists in real-life setting of the country’s public health system. Also, this will help in addressing shortage of specialist doctors in district hospitals of rural and remote areas, and help strengthen services at such hospitals,” a senior government official said.The note sent to the MoHF&W said all postgraduate students shall undertake a rotation in designated district hospitals/health system for a period of three months as a part of the course curriculum.For postgraduate students of community medicine, the requirement can be posting at primary health centres and field experience in addition to activities at the district hospital.“Satisfactory completion of this rotation shall be an essential condition before the candidate is allowed to appear in the final examination of the respective postgraduate course. The Ministry of Health is requested to develop guidelines for the scheme in partnership with the state government and BoG in three months,” it read.For the purpose of the proposed programme, a district hospital will be defined broadly as a functional public sector or publicly-funded hospital of about 200 beds or more, with facilities for specified specialities, designated by the Centre or state governments.Medical colleges, both government as well as private, will place their post-graduates at the disposal of the government for rotation/posting for the duration of the course.According to the note, the rotation will be provisionally termed ‘District Residency Programme’ and the postgraduate student undergoing this posting will be termed as ”District Resident.”Suitable guidelines for this rotation of postgraduate students of subjects such as community medicine, forensic medicine and pre-para clinical disciplines will be developed in commensurate with their curricula and training needs.“Ensuring training of doctors in varied settings of health system is a well-recognised principle in medical education. This (proposal) exposes the future physicians and specialists to diverse clinical materials.“District hospitals represent the backbone of the country’s secondary-level public healthcare providing specialty care. These hospitals are closer to people than most medical colleges, and are a overwhelming source of services for the people, rural and urban alike,” a senior government official said.As part of the suggested plan for implementation of the proposal, the BoG said the District Residency Programme may be coordinated by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) and the role will include preparing an annual roster for placement of the batch of postgraduate students. The states with surplus postgraduate students supply may be clustered with supply-deficient states. Read Article Related Posts Share The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story Add Comment
FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Caribbean and European officials discussed issues germane to both regions, as well as the future of their relationship, at the European Union-Cariforum Political Dialogue at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, New Kingston on Tuesday (March 23).Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Hon. Dr. Kenneth Baugh, highlighted that discussions will focus on the development of the first outline of a joint Caribbean-European Union political strategy, which will inform the EU-Cariforum and EU-Latin American and Caribbean Heads of Government meeting due for Madrid, Spain, May 17 to 18.He also said that the meeting will centre on an exchange of information, fostering of mutual understanding, facilitated agreed priorities and shared agendas.“Let us also bear in mind that we are meeting today against the background of a recently convened Stakeholder Seminar, where both Cariforum and the EU have already begun to define the parameters of our joint strategy,” Dr. Baugh told the political and diplomatic officials attending the opening ceremony.“Therefore any approach we take today will be more worthwhile, if we make the linkages to those discussions,” he went on.He also pointed out that the parties were meeting in advance of the EU/Cariforum Summit which will take place in the margins of the EU-LAC Summit in Madrid. “Let us be clear that the work we do here today, will serve to prepare us for engagement at that Summit and we must, therefore, develop the context for that encounter in this dialogue today,” he stated.Dr. Baugh said that there would also be focus on reconstruction and institutional support for Haiti.“You would also be aware of the tangible assistance that is still necessary, in the short, medium and long term, to shore up the courageous attempts being made by this proud state to cope with the devastation caused by a natural disaster,” he said.“It would be useful if we could leave this meeting with a clear, coordinated statement of the kinds of action that we will take, jointly, to move to the next phase of assistance, given that the needs of the country continue to be urgent and pressing,” he added.Minister of Economic Affairs, Empowerment, Innovation, Trade, Industry and Commerce of Barbados, Dr. the Hon. David Estwick, challenged his colleagues to evaluate the achievement of the last Summit, in order to effectively and accurately pave the way forward.“Clearly we must conclude that sufficient progress has not been made in any of the areas highlighted in the conclusions of the last Summit, except in respect of Haiti,” he argued.Dr. Estwick said for the upcoming Summit Government Heads should attempt to assure that they can implement decisions reached, and honour commitments made.“In that context we will need to seriously address the political management of Cariforum-EU cooperation. We will need to make arrangements for continuous political management and for a plan of action for the follow up, which must be undertaken,” he said.Also speaking at the opening ceremony was Spanish Secretary of State for Latin America and the Caribbean, Juan Pablo de Laiglesia and CARICOM Secretary General, Edwin Carrington.

RelatedGovt Welcomes Investors in Minerals Sector – State Minister Robinson RelatedGovt Welcomes Investors in Minerals Sector – State Minister Robinson FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of State in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson, says the Government welcomes the input of private investors, as it seeks to exploit the full potential of the country’s minerals sector.Minister of State in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson, says the Government welcomes the input of private investors, as it seeks to exploit the full potential of the country’s minerals sector.Mr. Robinson, who was speaking on Tuesday, June 25, at the opening of the 49th Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals, at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston, noted that the multi-million dollar industry could potentially earn the country millions in foreign exchange.“We believe that the potential for sustainable growth for this sector is there, and as an administration we are committed to facilitating that growth, primarily through the private investment that is required to exploit the minerals,” he stated.In 2008, the mining industry contributed 3.8 per cent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), most of which was attributed to bauxite and alumina. At the time, experts also predicted that full exploitation of the minerals sector could potentially earn the country as much as $184 billion a year.The State Minister said the Geology Forum, which is being held in the Caribbean for the first time, is quite timely and significant, as it opens the door for investors within the sector to witness Jamaica’s full potential.“Our minerals sector is one that provides tremendous potential for export-led growth, which is really the only way that we as a country can grow our way out of the challenges that we face economically,” he stated.Mr. Robinson therefore invited the international stakeholders to “explore some of that potential and to facilitate the kind of investment and development that we view as necessary to exploit the minerals to lead to foreign exchange earnings for the country”.He noted that while the government is focused on export-led growth, it is mindful to ensure that the country retains and takes advantage of more of the value-added components of the industry.“We don’t simply want to be the exporters of the basic raw material, but we want to look beyond the basic raw material and ensure that we do value-added components and retain most of the value within the country,” the State Minister said.Meanwhile, Commissioner of the Mines and Geology Division in the Ministry, Clinton Thompson, noted that while the global economic crisis has brought on countless challenges for the country’s bauxite-alumina sector, it has also presented a number of opportunities.“This has given us the opportunity to become much more resourceful in the way we develop and manage our mineral resources,” he said.Mr. Thompson said that industry stakeholders must now go beyond current knowledge in an effort to find new and expanding uses for the development of industrial minerals, such as lime stone.“Importantly, we must seek to improve the value chain through mineral-based diversification and value added industrialization. By doing this, we will develop linkages with other sectors, provide greater opportunities, increase wealth and transform our respective economies,” he stated.The 49th Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals is an international meeting of geologists and mining professionals interested in industrial minerals. The event is being held as part of activities for National Minerals Week 2013, from June 23 to 29, under the theme, ‘Minerals: Creating employment, Generating wealth, and Facilitating development’.Contact: Ahaliah Reynolds-Baker RelatedGovt Welcomes Investors in Minerals Sector – State Minister Robinson Govt Welcomes Investors in Minerals Sector – State Minister Robinson MiningJune 25, 2013Written by: Ahaliah Reynolds-Baker Govt Welcomes Investors in Minerals Sector – State Minister RobinsonJIS News | Presented by: PausePlay% buffered00:0000:00UnmuteMuteDisable captionsEnable captionsSettingsCaptionsDisabledQualityundefinedSpeedNormalCaptionsGo back to previous menuQualityGo back to previous menuSpeedGo back to previous menu0.5×0.75×Normal1.25×1.5×1.75×2×Exit fullscreenEnter fullscreenPlay Photo: JIS PhotographerMinister of State in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon.
