Also, no fans or spectators may be permitted on interior or exterior venue property.

Danish central bank blames pension funds for pressure on krone

first_imgThe Danish central bank, Danmarks Nationalbank, says it was Danish pension funds, life insurers and domestic investment funds that put the lion’s share of upward pressure on the krone in January and February rather than foreign speculators.Lars Rohde, director of the Danmarks Nationalbank, said: “A little more than one-third of the inflows can be attributed to foreign net purchases of Danish kroner.”Rohde was speaking at yesterday’s press conference presenting the bank’s quarterly report.He said the currency inflows from foreign parties in January and February were undoubtedly a reaction to the decision by the Swiss central bank to allow the Swiss franc to float against the euro. The European Central Bank’s (ECB) move to begin a wide-scale quantitative easing programme was also a factor behind the krone-buying, he said.Rohde said the Danish central bank did not share the speculators’ view that the Danish currency would follow the Swiss franc’s example and leave its peg, saying the bank would continue its current policy of defending the krone-euro peg.“But two-thirds of the inflows came from Danish investors of different types who bought kroner in the form of futures and hedged in that way different kinds of euro assets,” he said.Data from the central bank indicated that, in January, pension funds and life insurance companies had given rise to the bulk of krone inflows from domestic parties, while in February the domestic portion had come mainly from business and investment fund parties.Rohde said it was this combination of Danish pension funds and insurers and business and investment funds that had forced the central bank to intervene in the currency markets to defend the krone peg in the first two months of the year, to the tune of DKK295bn (€40bn).Meanwhile, individual Danish pension funds have had little to say officially on the subject of whether they have begun hedging their euro assets against kroner.There is arguably subtle pressure on the domestic institutions not to add to the central bank’s woes in having to keep the Danish currency unit tied to the euro.The Danish central bank recently confirmed it introduced a new requirement in February for pension funds to report their currency positions to the central bank on a weekly basis. Karsten Biltoft, director of administration at the central bank, said: “We have asked for the information to get better understanding of market developments.”However, the information is not being made public, he said.A source within the Danish pensions sector commented that the central bankers had been clever in managing the upwards pressure on the Danish currency and particularly so in introducing the new weekly reporting requirement. Most people would think twice before changing their currency positions, knowing this information would have to be disclosed to the central bank, the source said.He said the subject of whether Danish institutional investors were hedging their euro assets against a fall in the common currency against the Danish krone was a sensitive one.last_img read more

Ambrose lauds Skerritt’s administration

first_img(CMC) – Legendary fast bowler Sir Curtly Ambrose has lauded the Ricky Skerritt administration for immediately confronting and attempting to fix the player issues facing West Indies cricket.Prior to Skerritt’s election as Cricket West Indies (CWI) president a year ago, several experienced players remained at loggerheads with the Dave Cameron-led board and often declined selection while others opted for retirement.However, with Skerritt immediately overhauling the selection process and announcing his intention to use a player-centred approach to governance, the Caribbean side has seen the return of players like Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo and Lendl Simmons.“CWI before Ricky Skerritt’s tenure has had major issues with players and the board, and a lot of players just didn’t want to represent the West Indies because of issues,” Sir Curtly said here.“What I like about his (Skerritt) thing is that he brought all the players back in, meaning that everyone can be available for selection so we can try and find the strongest West Indies teams and that, to me, is a good thing.”Simmons was recalled after 2-½ years in the wilderness while Bravo ended his retirement and earlier this year made his first appearance in nearly four years for the Caribbean side.Pollard, whose appearances had also been infrequent, was appointed captain of the white-ball sides last September, despite having not played a single One-Day International in three years.Sir Curtly, a former West Indies bowling coach, said Pollard’s appointment had been a progressive move by selectors.“I like the idea of bringing Pollard as captain and I’ve said that before, in the ODIs and T20s,” said the Antiguan, who snatched 405 wickets from 98 Tests.“I think he is a fantastic leader. I have a lot of respect for him. He knows how to get the best out of his players and it is going to take a little time as well because we are so far behind.”Despite the positive moves by Skerritt regarding player involvement, Sir Curtly said the former tourism minister in St Kitts had a massive job on his hands in rescuing West Indies cricket.“West Indies cricket generally has been in a serious decline for about 20 years and even though president Skerritt and his crew have a lot of things they want to put in place, it is almost impossible to fix West Indies cricket in one year and not even one term, because one term is two years,” Sir Curtly argued.“It is going to take a lot longer than two years to really implement the things that they want to implement.”last_img read more

Fresh Two-year FIFA Ban Looms for Adamu

first_imgYesterday, the report of the adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of FIFA chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, recommended a two-year ban for the former director general of the National Sports Commission.In November 2013, Adamu was allegedly to have agreed to receive £500,000 in order to influence the voting procedure with his vote for the 2018 FIFA World Cup bid. The sting operation was carried out by UK-based Sunday Times.However, the report of the fresh matter before FIFA is the outcome of the investigations opened on March 9, 2015, two years after Adamu finished serving his three-year ban for that sting operation.According to FIFA, the investigations against Adamu conducted by Dr Cornel Borbély, chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, were opened on March 9 2015 and the final report was passed to the adjudicatory chamber on December 2, 2016.“In the final report, the investigatory chamber recommends a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activities (administrative, sports and any other) and a fine of 20,000 Swiss Franc for violations of arts 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).“The adjudicatory chamber under its Chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert has studied the report carefully and decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings against Mr Adamu.“In the course of the proceedings, the party (Adamu) will be invited to submit his position including any evidence with regard to the final report of the investigatory chamber (art. 70 par. 2 of the FCE), and may request a hearing (art. 74 par. 2 of the FCE),” stressed the statement.However for fair hearing, FIFA declined to further details of the matter as the former Nigerian sports administrator is deemed innocent until final verdict of the case.“For reasons linked to privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the adjudicatory chamber will not publish further details at the present time,” concludes the statement.Adamu was filmed in the Sunday Times sting in 2010 asking undercover reporters posing as bidders for $800,000 to influence his World Cup hosting vote, saying he wanted the money paid to him personally so he could finance soccer fields in Nigeria.He was suspended and not allowed to take part in the December 2010 votes, then banned for three years by FIFA. He failed in two appeals against his sanction. Adamu is not the only football administrator to face FIFA’s sanctions.Several others including former President Sepp Blatter and former UEFA chief, Mitchel Platini, are currently serving several years sanctions from all football related activities.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Duro IkhazuagbeThree years after he completed serving a three-year ban for ethical violation former CAF and FIFA Executive Committees member, Dr Amos Adamu, is in fresh trouble that may earn him another two-year ban from all football related activities.last_img read more
