Meanwhile, of the companies mentioned in the survey, Scottish Widows were the most highly regarded – one in four respondents who know of the company ranked it as their number one pensions provider, leaving the likes of Aviva (19 per cent) and Prudential (16 per cent) trailing.When considering state pensions, the picture is markedly different. Only nine per cent of respondents agreed that “the state retirement pension is a luxury we can no longer afford”. Respondents were also asked whether or not they agreed with the statement: “Pension credits reward people who are not bothered to save”. The number of those who agreed was markedly skewed towards those in the more affluent social grouping (ABC1). Thirty-eight per cent of the better off are wary of the current system of awarding pensions; only 29 per cent of C2DEs found reason to suspect pension credits go to undeserving spendthrifts.In the same report, aspects of the current system are deemed inequitable. The fact that those in the 40 per cent tax bracket benefit proportionally more from the tax relief on their private pension contributions than those in the 20 per cent bracket is widely derided; two thirds of respondents said that this “discrimination in favour of the better off” is unfair.Despite apparent discord in some areas of the pension debate, there are topics that draw similar opinions from across the societal divide. Fifty-two per cent of YouGov respondents (with ABC1s and C2DEs recording equal levels of support) agree that pensions based on individual contributions are unfair to those who are not earning because they are caring for children, the elderly and/or the disabled.Stephan Shakespeare is founder and chief executive of YouGov.

Paper giant to list in London

first_img INDIA’S biggest paper producer, Bilt Paper, is to list on the London Stock Exchange to raise $330m (£203m) to fund growth, it said yesterday.Bilt will use the net proceeds of the issue to finance $170m of capital expansion, including bigger wood pulp mills and paper production facilities. The rest will be used to pay down $140m of debt to its parent company Ballarpur International Holdings. The listing is expected to be at least 25 per cent free float, a spokesman told City A.M., and the company is keen to list before Easter, with a mid-April target date. The price will be determined following a roadshow of investors that starts today. It is unlikely to shelve the offer due to current market conditions, the spokesman said. Bilt, which generated $358m revenues in the six months to December, expects to join the FTSE 250 index. Two private equity investors, including a JP Morgan fund, which owns 20 per cent of the equity, will have the option to sell a portion of their shares. Bilt has capitalised on India’s soaring demand for paper, which will grow at a rate of 5.5 per cent per year between 2008 and 2020. Its own paper production capacity has risen 88 per cent since 2008. “Indian paper demand is expected to increase significantly throughout the next decade,” its chairman R.R. Vederah said. Bilt is part of the Ballarpur paper group, which is 49.4 per cent owned by Indian conglomerate Avantha.ADVISERS: CITIGROUP AND JP MORGANSIMON ALEXANDERCITIGROUPCITIGROUP Global Markets is sole sponsor to Bilt’s offering, with corporate broking director Simon Alexander leading the team. Alexander has been involved in high profile deals such as Dubai logistics group DP World’s takeover of transport operator P&O in 2005 and the sale of music publisher Chrysalis to BMG last November.Citi’s UK global markets division is also joint global co-ordinator and bookrunner to the offer alongside JP Morgan Cazenove. Cazenove’s relationship with Bilt is thanks to its longstanding links with Avantha group, Bilt’s overall owner.James Taylor, managing director of corporate finance is leading the team. His expertise lies in emerging markets and resources and he counts mining giant Xstrata and Nat Rothschild’s vehicle Vallar among clients. He also understands the difficulty of post-financial crisis IPOs: Cazenove had to stabilise Essar Energy’s share price last year after it fell seven per cent following its £1.3bn London IPO.

The FTSE 100 dropped 1.3% from Tuesday night’s close. At just over 6,567 points, Britain’s blue-chip index closed Wednesday at its cheapest since trading first kicked off in 2021 after the Christmas break. Still, this drop is quite meagre compared to the fall that constituent Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW) experienced in mid-week business.This small-cap closed down nearly 11% from Tuesday at 27.91p per share. Earlier on Wednesday it was trading at its cheapest since late November.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…Tullow’s share price hasn’t been helped by a fresh drop in oil prices today. According to the Brent benchmark, barrels are now valued at $55.50, down around 30 cents on the day. But the exodus from this UK oil share was chiefly prompted by the release of full-year financials.Profits crashed in 2020In its latest update, Tullow estimated that revenues in 2020 fell to $1.4bn as oil prices reversed. This is down from turnover of $1.7bn recorded a year earlier. Back in 2019, the UK share reported a realised oil price of $62.40 a barrel versus a price of $50.80 last year (including hedge receipts worth around $200m).As a consequence, Tullow said that full-year gross profit for 2020 would clock in at around $400m. By comparison profits came in at $759m in 2019.In better news, though, Tullow announced a significant improvement in its balance sheet strength. Net debt dropped to around $2.4bn as of December 30, it said. This is down from $2.8bn at the end of 2019.  Debt levels were reduced by $430m worth of free cash flow and the $500m sale of assets in Uganda.Tullow’s production tipped to tankTullow had more bad news though. The business — which operates more than a dozen oil assets across Africa and South America — announced that it would produce between 60,000 and 66,000 barrels of oil per day in 2021.The company said that “this forecast reflects the drilling hiatus in 2020, a planned shutdown in September on Jubilee and deferred development drilling on Simba in Gabon”. By comparison the driller hauled 74,900 barrels of the black stuff out of the ground each day last year.The small-cap share reckons that daily average oil production will come in at 63,000 barrels this year. This is chiefly because Tullow estimates that combined full-year production from its TEN and Jubilee fields in Ghana will fall by 23% year-on-year. read more

As Robert Putnam and David Campbell point out in their book-length study ‘American Grace’: “The best evidence suggests that roughly half of all married Americans today are married to someone who came originally from a different religious tradition … and a bit fewer than a third of all marriages remain mixed today” (148). While I don’t know of any statistical evidence of this kind available on Episcopal clergy, I personally know a handful of priests whose spouses/partners profess differing faith orientations.As for myself, I am more concerned that the Episcopal Church would harbor “Christians” intolerant of other faiths than I am with a priest whose husband holds a slightly different position on abstract doctrinal matters. Also, Mr. Kirk, I assume that your comment regarding the church getting “stranger and stranger” is referring to the increasing presence of women in leadership roles. I’m just taking a stab in the dark, seeing as how you singled out the Rev. Woodliff-Stanley in your bizarre diatribe. But if this is indeed the case, then shame on you.

Referee Nigel Owens takes a tumble at Soccer City

first_imgSunday Aug 22, 2010 Referee Nigel Owens takes a tumble at Soccer City Yesterdays Tri Nations clash was packed with intensity as the Springboks and All Blacks battled it out in front of 94 000 fans. No inch was given and poor old Nigel Owens found that out the hard way as he got bundled over in a nasty collision. As the second half approached, Jimmy Cowan made a dart off the back of a maul and as Bok flanker Juan Smith came across to close down the space, Owens got a shove in the back as he got in Smiths way. Unfortunately referee Owens ended up in the middle of the tackle, with Cowan and Schalk Burger landing on the Welshman in what looked like a pretty messy position. Luckily Owens was tough enough to get through it and his neck wasnt damaged, despite a short delay and needing to be attended to by a team medic. – In other news, its since been reported that Dan Carter will undergo ankle surgery and will be out for eight weeks. He has been carrying the injury throughout the tournament and has opted to have an operation now after he said it was affecting his ankle movement. – Francois Steyn looks likely to rejoin the Springbok team after he played a full eighty minutes for Racing Metro in the Top 14 last night. Steyn had been in South Africa but was supposedly injured, so went back to France.
