AP2 positive as Sweden revives parts of shelved buffer fund reform

first_imgAt the end of 2015, wide-ranging plans to reform Sweden’s pension buffer fund system – including closing two of the five funds – were shelved because no agreement could be reached among the many groups and individuals involved.In a recent interview with Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, Bolund said the structure of the four main AP buffer funds would remain, but the government would go forward with the part of the reform that focused on increased demands for sustainability and free investment.A spokeswoman for Bolund confirmed the minister’ plan for a new proposal, but said it had not been introduced yet.A cross-party parliamentary pensions group has also agreed to work on the sustainability rules and some of the rules for investments, she said. These proposals should be completed by autumn of next year – by the time of the next Swedish general election, which is to be held on or before 9 September 2018.Although many of the proposals contained within the now defunct AP buffer fund reform came in for sharp criticism from the AP funds themselves, they have since been vocal about the need for more regulatory leeway in their asset allocation – which was part of the reform.In February, AP1’s chief executive Johan Magnusson warned it would be hard for the pension fund to keep producing current levels of return given the AP funds’ mandatory 30% investment grade fixed income allocation.Hans Fahlin, CIO of AP2, said the AP funds all felt the investment regulations – which only permit the funds to have 5% in private assets, except real estate – were outdated and should be changed.Fahlin said AP2’s risk-taking should be controlled in a more nuanced way. Sweden’s second national pension fund AP2 says it is positive about the idea of the government changing investment regulations for the country’s pension buffer funds.Financial markets and consumer affairs minister Per Bolund has said he would go ahead with a new proposal on rules regarding sustainability and investment.Asked about Bolund’s intention to free up investment rules for the buffer funds, Ulrika Danielson, head of communications at AP2, said the fund was positive about the prospect of such change.“It’s positive if the investment regulations for the AP funds are changed as the return levels we have had historically will become increasingly difficult to achieve with the [current] applicable regulations,” she said.last_img read more

Clippers suffer fourth-quarter breakdowns in loss to Pistons

first_img“I don’t know what the reason was, and we’re going to be a really good basketball team, but we are never going to be a good team if we play and act like that. We deserved to lose. I hate losing, but I was fine with losing tonight. Either it’s a good lesson or not. It’s up to them.”The Clippers shot only 33.3 percent (28 of 84). They committed 19 turnovers, which led to 22 points for the Pistons. They had only two assists in the fourth quarter and didn’t shoot a single free throw in the final 12 minutes of what was a physical game.How and why the Clippers suffered so many breakdowns was a matter of opinion.Rivers stated his, but the players had their own views.“I feel like our defense wasn’t as good as it should have been,” center DeAndre Jordan said. “We scored the ball well and we shot the ball OK, but I felt like we gave up a lot of offensive rebounds and second-chance points and our defense wasn’t connected tonight.” PreviousDetroit Pistons center Andre Drummond dunks during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Doc Rivers wasn’t happy late Saturday night. Losing for the first time in 2017-18 didn’t upset the Clippers’ coach as much as the way they dropped a 95-87 decision to the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center. After all, he didn’t expect them to go 82-0 this season.“I didn’t think we had the right spirit tonight,” Rivers said. “I didn’t think we played together. We’ve been great, but today was a step backwards. We played the blame game, pointed fingers at each other. That’s something we have not done at all.”Rivers didn’t cite specific incidents after the Clippers squandered a 13-point lead in the third quarter en route to their first loss in five games to start the season. He did make it clear the Clippers had work to do before facing the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors on Monday.“I have seen winning, and that’s not winning,” Rivers said. “To me, every once in a while, the basketball gods take over, and we deserved to lose. We tried to rally. It’s easy to do that when you get down, but we lost the lead because our heads weren’t right tonight. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Power forward Blake Griffin didn’t agree with Rivers that the Clippers played the blame game.“No, I didn’t see that, to be honest,” Griffin said. “I thought we missed shots. I thought we made small, stupid mistakes here and there, just as a team. I didn’t really see anybody pointing fingers. But that’s a perspective thing. He saw it from his perspective.”As disjointed as the Clippers played, they still led 55-45 at halftime and 70-57 after Danilo Gallinari hit a 3-pointer with 4 minutes, 54 seconds left in the third quarter. The Pistons rallied to within 72-67 to start the fourth, then surged into the lead 77-76 on Stanley Johnson’s 3-pointer.Detroit outscored the Clippers 28-15 in the fourth quarter.Austin Rivers scored 17 of his team-high 20 points in the first half. Griffin added 19 points and 11 rebounds, but failed to lead the Clippers in scoring for the first time in five games. Gallinari added 13 points, but missed 12 of 16 shots.Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson each had 15 points for the Pistons, who ended a six-game losing streak to the Clippers at Staples Center. Langston Galloway scored 13 points in a reserve role, including 11 on 3-for-5 shooting from 3-point range in the final quarter.The Clippers were the last undefeated team in the NBA. They hadn’t been 5-0 to start a season since 1985-86, their second season in Los Angeles after moving from San Diego. After that five-game winning streak, they promptly lost eight in a row and 17 of their next 20 overall.Those Clippers finished with a 32-50 record.These Clippers seem destined for something far better, Saturday’s clunker not withstanding.“I think we got stagnant at times,” Griffin said of losing to the Pistons. “Obviously, you want to come out and play a perfect 48-minute game, but that’s not very realistic. You’ve got to stay position throughout the ups and downs of the game.”last_img read more
