Schemes, insurers and unions call for independent pensions commission

first_img“We need to relentlessly pursue that vision,” Segars said.“We need to advocate policies that take us toward that vision and challenge those that distract us.“[A commission] would create that long-term view of the retirement savings system, build consensus around it and hold the government to account for delivering it.“[It] will help to ensure we can put the long-term interests of savers, not the short-term interests of politicians, at the heart of pensions policy.”The NAPF said its envisaged commission would be a “small group” with expertise to represent the interests of savers, employers, the industry and the wider economy.It would undertake detailed research and report to the government and Parliament annually, providing an assessment of the market with recommendations for change where necessary.The independent Turner Commission first suggested the policy of auto-enrolment after being set up in 2002 by the then Labour government.The NAPF, which is calling for a permanent commission, said Turner’s success was built on shared policy building and vision on what needed to change.“[The Turner Commission’s] process of decision making – thoughtful, evidence-based and inclusive – laid the foundations for a consensus that has delivered one of the most far-reaching public policy interventions in recent decades,” Segars said.In March, the Parliamentary body charged with scrutinising pensions policy called for a new commission to review several aspects of policy, including changes to the defined contribution (DC) market and auto-enrolment.However, it fell short of calling for a permanent stature.Outgoing pensions minister Steve Webb has admitted the structure of government was ill-suited for pensions policy but outlined a wider idea of creating a new government department focused on pensions and the ageing society.Webb faces re-election as a Liberal Democrat MP on 7 May with the outcome of whether he will remain in his seat, or his party in government, difficult to call.At an event in March hosted by the Society of Pensions Professionals, Webb said he disagreed with the notion an independent commission could remove “the politics from pensions”.While praising the work of the Turner Commission, Webb said removing politics from pensions was unattainable given the sensitivities around pensions policy and retirement ages.Any independent commission would only provide recommendations to government departments, leaving MPs to agree or disagree with implementation.Last year, the Danish government said the country’s pension system needed to be analysed and was considering the creation of a pensions commission to look at tax and insufficient coverage. The UK should create a permanent independent commission to create a long-term view of the pensions system and help build consensus around government policy and scrutiny over its delivery, a report has said.The report, published by the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF), said the commission was not about taking decisions away from politicians but moving away from short-term opportunistic decision making.The call for an independent commission has been made many times; however, the new report has received backing from a wide spectrum of organisations the Association of British Insures (ABI), the Trades Union Congress (TUC), the Federation of Small Businesses, pension schemes and providers and the International Longevity Centre (ILC).Joanne Segars, chief executive of the NAPF, said the industry needed collectivism to agree on definitions for “good retirement outcomes”, ensuring savers reached targets and deciding what role pensions play and how much intervention into people’s decision making should be made.last_img read more

Ighalo could have Cantona impact at Man Utd, claims ex-EPL legend

first_img The 30-year-old arrived in Manchester on Sunday with United hoping he can provide a cutting edge after they failed to score in three successive Premier League matches for the first time since October 2016. “This was an emergency signing,” the former United goalkeeper said on Sky Sports News. “I can understand a lot of people taking about a scatter gun approach, well it had to be with Marcus Rashford being out. “The top four is still possible for Manchester United, they had to go and get somebody. “The boy that’s come in (Ighalo) has got nothing to lose, nobody expects anything unbelievable from him but they definitely needed somebody in that position. “You never know. A long, long time ago Manchester United signed a certain Frenchman (Eric Cantona) who no one really expected much from and he ended up propelling them to one of their most successful seasons of all time. United’s goalless draw with Wolves on Saturday leaves them seventh in the table, six points off the top four, but Bosnich believes they can still qualify for Champions League football next season. “I think they can, there’s no doubt about that,” he added.. “Six points at this stage of the season for me is still nothing. “The big question of them not scoring goals is the way that they’re playing.

Whether or not they’ll be able creep into that top four at the end of the season is a different question entirely. “There’s a still a chance, regardless of what anyone says they’re still in the mix.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Odion Ighalo has nothing to lose at Manchester United and could become the next Eric Cantona, according to Mark Bosnich.

Mourinho: No plans to sell or buy

first_img “The principle is that we would like him to stay,” Mourinho added. “The question is not to be allowed or not allowed. The question is to have a phenomenal offer and a player to be super keen of accepting a new challenge in his career. “We don’t want to sell our players.” Fiorentina’s Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado has been linked with a move to Chelsea. Mourinho, who insisted Chelsea do not have players lined up to join them if a player is sold, added: “I shouldn’t make any comments about players from other clubs. You speak about Cuadrado, you can speak about 10, 20 players. “It’s my job to know them all. I think he fits well in Fiorentina’s squad and Colombia’s squad, not in Chelsea’s squad.” Schurrle began the season full of confidence after setting up the World Cup-clinching goal in Brazil last July, but is currently finding opportunities hard to come by at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho said: “I consider him an important player, (but) unless I find a tactical system with three wingers, it’s difficult to be in front of Eden (Hazard) and Willian. “He’s not a kid to moan. He’s a good professional. He works always well.” Schurrle is to start against Bradford, with Petr Cech to play in goal after Thibaut Courtois returned for the midweek Capital One Cup semi-final first leg at Liverpool. Cech played last weekend’s match at Swansea as Courtois was still nursing a minor thumb problem and Mourinho has no concerns with managing two goalkeepers he believes are among the world’s best. “It’s my easiest decision,” he said. “No other manager in the world is so happy and comfortable as I am about the problems I have in goal.” Mourinho will make changes for Bradford, with Tuesday’s second leg with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in mind. There is also the small matter of a Premier League encounter with Manchester City, who are five points behind the leaders in second place, on January 31. The Portuguese added: “We have two knockout matches in three days, so we can after Tuesday we can be in four competitions or only two. Of course we want to try to be in all four. “The third match is just a Premier League match, one of 38, and that is different. It doesn’t decide anything, but Bradford and Liverpool, yes. They decide if we are still in the competition.” Chelsea, who play Paris St Germain in the Champions League last 16 next month, remain on course for a quadruple which Mourinho says is “almost impossible” due to fixture congestion as much as anything. “It’s very difficult,” Mourinho said. “A team that plays the Capital One Cup final will have one game in the Premier League postponed. A team that plays the FA Cup semi-final will have a game postponed. A team that gets a draw in the FA Cup has to play another game. “If a team is in all these competitions plus the European competition until the end of the season, (there) will arrive a moment in April, May so, so difficult that I would say almost impossible.” The Blues boss says both Germany forward Schurrle and Egypt winger Salah will be in the squad for Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie with League One Bradford, a game for which captain John Terry will drop to the bench. “The club doesn’t move. We don’t move. Our desire is to keep the same squad,” Mourinho said. “The window is open, but what I can say is I like them, I need them and I trust them. “We are happy with the players, we are happy with the work we did in the summer to prepare for the season, (it) reflects the trust we have in the group and, if possible, we don’t want to be involved in the transfer window. “If we have to be it’s because somebody pushed us, with some offer for our player, but Chelsea moving and looking for a change? No. “Sometimes we have needs, like we had in the past transfer windows where we sold some players. “The reality is normally nothing should happen in the next two weeks and we should go to February with the same squad.” Salah has found first-team opportunities limited this season and has been linked with a move to Roma. A Bundesliga return for Schurrle has been suggested, with Wolfsburg mentioned. If a move were to happen, it would take a “phenomenal offer” and a player indicating his desire to switch, Mourinho says. Jose Mourinho has insisted Chelsea have no plans to sell or buy in the January transfer window, playing down reports of imminent exits for World Cup winner Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah.

Arsenal deny Chelsea double as Ramsey seals FA Cup

first_imgBy Martyn HermanLONDON,(Reuters)-Arsenal salvaged some silverware from a traumatic season as they beat Premier League champions Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday thanks to Aaron Ramsey’s late winner.Chelsea had been hot favourites to complete a remarkable debut season for manager Antonio Conte but were not at their clinical best as Arsenal, who finished fifth in the league, lifted the Cup for the third time in four seasons.They have now won it a record 13 times while manager Arsene Wenger, who is yet to say whether he will be extending his 21-year reign, is now the most successful manager in the history of the competition with seven wins.Chelsea made a woeful start and were behind after four minutes thanks to Alexis Sanchez’s controversial opener but when Diego Costa levelled in the 76th minute it seemed they would complete a memorable season.Conte’s side had to play the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Victor Moses was dismissed following a second yellow card for diving.Ramsey’s header in the 79th minute knocked the stuffing out of Conte’s side and Arsenal could even have extended their lead in the closing stages as Chelsea finally buckled.Wenger, who failed to finish in the top four for the first time since taking charge in 1996, celebrated with his players in front of the massed red ranks of Arsenal fans at the end.“We had an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards,” the 67-year-old Wenger said.“This team has suffered. They’ve united and responded. I said last week this team will be in the championship with one or two good buys. They showed strength and unity and played spectacular football today.”Underdogs Arsenal enjoyed a dream start although there was huge debate about whether Sanchez’s effort should have stood.When his initial attempt to chip the ball into Chelsea’s area was blocked, he appeared to knock the rebound forward with his arms before running through and shooting past Thibaut Courtois despite Ramsey standing in an offside position.Confusion reigned as the goal was initially disallowed but after consulting with his assistant Gary Bewsick who had raised his flag, referee Anthony Taylor awarded the goal.Chelsea never properly recovered from that body blow and Arsenal could have been out of sight before halftime.Mesut Ozil had a shot back-heeled off the line by Gary Cahill while Chelsea had an amazing escape when Danny Welbeck’s header thumped against the post and Ramsey bundled the ball back against the same upright.Despite being all at sea Chelsea did threaten with Costa denied by a perfectly-timed tackle by Per Mertesacker who was making his first start for Arsenal for 13 months.Arsenal keeper David Ospina also bravely denied Costa, receiving a blow to the head for his troubles.Chelsea started the second half with more tempo and Footballer of the Year N’Golo Kante warmed Ospina’s fingers with a deflected drive from distance before Moses brought a fine save from Ospina after Costa played him in.Chelsea were required to play the last 20 minutes a man down after referee Taylor’s second big call of the day, deciding that Moses had thrown himself to the floor under no obvious contact from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.Just when it seemed their double hopes were slipping away, Costa equalised when his weakly-hit shot brushed off the excellent Mertesacker and past the diving Ospina.But Arsenal had the last laugh when Chelsea’s defence went AWOL again, allowing Ramsey the freedom of the box to head substitute Olivier Giroud’s astute cut-back past Courtois.last_img read more

Kelvon Anderson and Chris Harry supported with figures of 3-12 and 2-6 respectively.Orlando Jailall with 18, Kevin Christian (14) and Ellian Whyte (10), were the main scorers in that paltry batting performance.Kelvin UmroaResuming on 107-6, Berbice were eventually bowled out for 200 in 76.1 overs with Garfield Benjamin and Nigel Deodat taking their overnight score from 13 and 10 respectively to 50 and 48 respectively.Benjamin’s 50 came off 145 balls with four fours and a six while Deodat’s innings lasted for 84 balls with four boundaries. Leon Swammy made 12.However, off-spinners Amit Persaud and Lance Roberts claimed the final four wickets to finish with figures of 6-93 and 4-42 respectively.Play is scheduled to start at 09:30hrs today.Berbice, the defending champions, drew their first round game against the Select Under-17 team while Essequibo suffered a humiliating nine-wicket defeat against leaders, Demerara, in their first round encounter.last_img read more
