Institutionals cannot fully replace banks in infrastructure financing – EIB working paper

first_imgInstitutional investors can “play a bigger role” in financing infrastructure, but Inderst Advisory has concluded in a report commissioned by the European Investment Bank (EIB) that banks and other traditional channels of financing will need to be kept up as well.According to the EIB working paper, which compiles figures on institutional infrastructure investments worldwide, only around 1% of institutional assets, or $600bn-700bn (€441bn-514bn), globally are currently invested in infrastructure, not counting equity exposure via shares in infrastructure-linked companies.George Inderst – author of the study, entitled “Private Infrastructure Finance and Investment in Europe”, and chief executive at Inderst Advisory – said: “The analysis shows institutional investors can play a bigger role as a source of finance, but expectations should be realistic.“Even a strong shift in the average asset allocation from around 1% to 3-5% over 10 years could contribute only 5-10% of the estimated infrastructure requirements.” He said “traditional forces” of public and corporate capital expenditure needed to “keep working, as does bank lending, especially in Europe”.“Pension fund investment in infrastructure has been growing strongly in recent years but is still small compared with overall assets of $30trn,” Inderst said.  He added that pension funds’ average exposure to infrastructure was skewed mainly towards Canada and Australia, where allocations can be as high as 5%, while in Europe exposure is often well below the 1% average.Inderst estimated that the “general de-risking trend” in institutional investor portfolios had led to a reduction of equity exposure from 60% in 2001 and 2006 to 47% in 2012, while at the same time building an exposure to alternative asset classes such as infrastructure.“This implies a reduction of roughly $200bn of equity capital over this short period,” he said.The trend might be furthered by regulation.“There are concerns fair value and risk-based regulations for institutional investors could lead to further de-risking and pro-cyclicality, and may also be detrimental to substantially increasing infrastructure and other long-term investment strategies,” he said.last_img read more

Frye honored by Indiana Broadband and Technology Association

first_imgState Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) accepts the Legislator of the Year Award on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, from the Indiana Broadband and Technology Association for his public service advancing broadband and technology throughout the state. From left to right: Smithville Communications Executive Vice President Cullen McCarty; Indiana Broadband and Technology Association President John Koppin; Frye and AT&T Indiana Director of External Affairs Matt Long.Indianapolis, In. — Republican state representative from Greensburg, Randy Frye received the Legislator of the Year Award on Tuesday from the Indiana Broadband and Technology Association for his continued work modernizing telecommunications and broadband in Indiana.The Indiana Broadband and Technology Association, which is a non-profit trade association representing the broadband and technology industry, works to promote telecom reform and keep Indiana up-to-date on ever-changing technology and communication methods.“Hoosiers need access to dependable, high-speed service in order to take part in the modern world,” Frye said. “We are passing legislation bringing all communities into the 21st century and keeping us at the forefront of telecom innovation. These policies create jobs and give choices to Hoosiers, particularly in rural communities.”Frye, who serves on the House Committee on Utilities, Energy and Telecommunications, supported legislation this session expanding broadband internet access to rural communities. He said this new law raises the definition of high-speed internet service to 10 megabits per second and revamps a pre-existing state grant program to encourage the deployment of broadband to underserved regions of the state.last_img read more

Big Sam: Cole can soften Sakho blow

first_imgWest Ham manager Sam Allardyce hopes Carlton Cole can step up to the challenge and help offset the loss of Senegal forward Diafra Sakho, who could miss the rest of the season with a thigh strain. “But at home, they have been very good, it will be tough, hard to get something. “By the way they started against Manchester United, you thought it would be a turning point for them, but at the end of the game, it was United who deserved to win.” City’s poor form has seen the long-term future of manager Manuel Pellegrini in some doubt as they might now face a scrap with Liverpool for a Champions League qualifying spot. German coach Jurgen Klopp has been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite to become the next City manager following the announcement he was to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer. Allardyce would like to see some more home-grown managers get a chance at one of the Premier League’s leading clubs. “There should always be hope for British coaches, we are very good at what we do and you get tested at every level of your ability,” said the Irons boss, himself not yet having sorted his own future past the end of the season. “We enjoy the club you manage and try to get success where you can, then whatever will be, will be.” Press Association The Irons head to Manchester City on Sunday without their 12-goal frontman, who limped off against Stoke last weekend. Sakho, impressive in the early part of the season following a summer move from Metz, now faces a race to be fit for the final matches of the Barclays Premier League campaign, but will not be rushed back into action. Allardyce is already without England forward Andy Carroll following a knee injury, although Enner Valencia has shrugged off a foot problem to play, so is banking on veteran striker Cole, who has just three goals this season, to produce a vintage display at the Etihad Stadium. “It leaves us very short in goalscoring options, but I am expecting that Carlton will come in and play a big (role) for us in the next few games with the performances like we know he can,” said Allardyce. “It is a thigh injury (for Sakho), we think maybe towards the end of the season (he could be back), but maybe not. “You have to be very careful with a thigh strain, so that he does not get a recurrence. “If he is fit, he is fit. We would say 100 per cent fit, and not want to risk him if he was 95 per cent fit, we would give him that time to be absolutely certain, which would mean we would have to be at least four or five days training with the rest of the squad before he was available.” Premier League champions City have seen their title defence left in tatters following a run of four defeats in six matches – which includes last weekend’s 4-2 defeat at city rivals United. Allardyce is hoping his side can raise their game, following the disappointment of conceding another stoppage-time goal as Stoke earned a 1-1 draw at Upton Park last Saturday. “Like ourselves, they cannot find a way to win at the moment,” said the Irons boss. “It is one which is going to test their nerve a little bit and hopefully we can test their nerve. last_img read more

Punxsutawney Phil Sees No Shadow, Predicts Spring is Coming Early

first_imgDespite having no formal meteorology training, Punxsutawney Phil typical offers one of the most anticipated weather forecasts every year.On Sunday, the famous groundhog put in his two cents on whether there will be six more weeks of winter this time around, or if spring will get an early start.By failing to see his shadow, Phil predicted that winter will wrap up soon and give away to the new season.The tradition goes back 134 years. According to data, Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow 104 times, compared to not seeing it 20 times. There are no records from 10 Groundhog Days.Last year and this year mark the first time that he has not seen his shadow in consecutive years.In the 21st century, Phil has been less than 50 percent accurate with his forecasts.He saw his shadow three years ago, meaning six more weeks of winter. However, most of the country experienced a very warm end to winter. That year saw the second-warmest February in recorded U.S. history. March of 2017 was also mild, marking the ninth-warmest March in recorded national history.In 2018, Phil saw his shadow, and incorrectly predicted a cool start to spring, based on NOAA data. That February ended up being a very warm month for much of the nation, especially in the East. Last year, he did not see his shadow, and February ended up being a warm month for the Northeast.last_img read more

Dindyal ton, Lord all-round efforts  lead GCC to comprehensive win

first_imgWEST Indies U-16 cricketer, Mavindra Dindyal, and Devon Lord, back from a stint in Canada, were able to register solid performances over the weekend to give home team, the Georgetown Cricket Club, a comprehensive victory against Ace Warriors in their Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) Noble House Seafoods Two-Day Second Division cricket clash. Young Dindyal batted sensibly to score 101 (8X4s, 1X6) while Lord and Ronaldo Alimohamed supported with half centuries to lift GCC to 285-5 declared, on Sunday, before they again bowled out a depleted Ace Warriors unit for a paltry total, which resulted in an innings and 204-run victory.On Saturday, GCC, defending champions of the competition, had taken control of the clash by restricting the visitors for 38 runs, after left-arm spinners Stephon Wilson and Lord had grabbed 4-7 and 3-15.Winston Forrester supported with 2-1 from three overs.The home team had reached 127-3 by the close of play with Dindyal unbeaten on 37 and Alimohamed on 13.On Sunday morning, the pair continued to build on their lead, with Alimohamed hitting three fours and a six in a score of 52.   After Alimohamed, who captained the side, fell, regular skipper Lord joined Dindyal in the middle. When the side declared in 45 overs, Lord was left unbeaten on 54 after having struck four fours and an equal amount of sixes.The left-arm spinner then nabbed 4-21 to help restrict Ace Warriors to 43-7 in 18.1 overs. Ace Warriors only batted with eight players in their second innings.last_img read more

Spring football will raise questions

first_imgThe grass is green, the birds are chirping and the SoCal temperature is starting to consistently hit 70 degrees, which can only mean one thing: spring is here.A Sark contrast · New head coach Steve Sarkisian will have to find new ways to create hype around USC football after a tumultuous 2013. Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanAs those of us of Iranian descent might know, the beginning of spring is celebrated in Persian culture to ring in the New Year in a 13-day day festival called Nowruz, which celebrates new beginnings.The holiday not only commemorates the end of winter, but also signifies that I don’t have to watch the atrocious USC men’s basketball team play another game until next fall after a rough first campaign for head coach Andy Enfield.More importantly, the coming of spring means that spring football is on the horizon — and for USC, the road to the Trojans’ Aug. 30 opener against Fresno State at the Coliseum starts on Tuesday.When the team takes Howard Jones Field to practice on Tuesday, their cleat indents on the luscious, green grass will not only be the beginning of a long journey, but will also signify a sense of renewal for the Trojans.And after enduring a season that featured three different head coaches, an embarrassing home loss to Washington State and a pair of defeats to rivals UCLA and Notre Dame, the team can now get the fresh start they have been seeking for quite some time.It all started with Sarkisian’s Signing Day magic, when he captured the Pac-12’s top recruiting class. Now it’s time to churn that momentum onto the playing field.Spring marks new beginnings for the team with a new coaching staff, new players and a clean slate featuring questions surrounding the team’s future.Perhaps the most interesting story going into spring ball is who will be the starting quarterback on the depth chart come April.Will the chick — redshirt freshman Max Browne — hatch from his egg this spring or will Cody Kessler continue to fly like the phoenix that landed him the starting job over Max Wittek last spring?Kessler, the incumbent, holds a slight advantage over Browne after throwing for just under 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns last fall. He got the job done last season and brings back experience, though the talent and throwing arm of Browne is continuously praised.Sarkisian knows what Browne can do, having recruited him out of Skyline High School in Washington, and I’m excited to see how he and Kessler split reps during practice and duel during the spring game.But a question that arises every spring is which players are going to fill in the team’s holes?The Trojans return 18 starters: eight on offense, eight on defense and two on special teams, but they lost pretty important players at fairly important positions. Now that wide receiver Marqise Lee is gone, Nelson Agholor will step into his role as the number one receiver and Darreus Rogers will likely complement him on the outside.As position battles ensue, Sark needs to replace the heart of the offensive line, as center Marcus Martin and tackle Kevin Graf head to the draft. He has a good bunch of talent to choose from, especially with the incoming recruiting class which includes early enrollee Toa Lobendahn.Lobendahn will be sporting the No. 55 jersey of late Trojan Junior Seau, which makes the prestigious No. 55 a two-way number (LB Lamar Dawson will also wear No. 55) after it historically only went to linebackers. If the coaches didn’t have high expectations for the freshman, they probably wouldn’t let that happen.What I’m really curious about, however, is how Sarkisian will be able to hype up the team during the spring, which isn’t easy when the season lies so far ahead. Hopefully, he doesn’t come up with a motto like “Don’t talk about it, be about it” on the field, the Lane Kiffin slogan that didn’t really inspire anyone. Maybe he’ll bring the team cookies, In and out or chicken and waffles like Coach O did during his tenure.Fortunately for Sark, the best part about the spring, a time of freshness, is that he can “be about” anything he wants, start his own traditions and produce his own one-liners to get his team going.Whether you want to hear Sark’s words of wisdom or just want to catch the team in action this spring, anyone is welcome to get their fix of USC spring ball in person from the deck of Dedeaux Field, which overlooks Howard Jones Field.With the early success of the Trojans’ baseball team, USC fans can now really get a bang for their buck by experiencing quite the doubleheader beginning with spring football practice followed by a USC baseball game.Spring cleaning is boring — so I advise you to take a break, put on some shades, and head out to a practice or two. From previous experience, you never know who you will see — Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh showed up to speak to the team last spring.So take advantage of the opportunity. Oh, and Pro Day is next Wednesday, another event signifying new beginnings for the Trojans’ NFL-bound athletes.This is why the spring is my favorite season at USC: Unlike the words of Rachel Carson, it’s no “silent spring” here. There’s always something going on.The only thing better than spring time on campus is when the Trojans get back to the playing field on Saturdays in the fall — and I’m sure that we are all looking forward to that. Until then, enjoy the spring green.Darian Nourian is a sophomore majoring in print and digital journalism. His column, “Dishin’ Darian,” runs every other Friday.

Track team takes second place in weekend meet

first_imgThe USC track team spent the weekend competing against the best teams in the country, including teams from the Big Ten, Big 12, SEC and Pac-12, in the 40th Annual Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational at the Bob Devaney Sports Center Indoor Track in Lincoln, Neb.Friday’s competition consisted mainly of qualifying rounds for the Trojans.“This is our first meet this year on a banked track and for most of the freshmen their first time ever,” USC Director of Track and Field Caryl Smith Gilbert said.The Trojans had eight athletes advance out of their heats into the finals. Among them was freshman Dior Hall who ran a season-best 8.22 in the 60m HH. On the second day of the competition, however, Hall would best her own record with a 8.14 on her way to victory and setting a USC freshman record. Hall is tied for the second fastest time on the NCAA descending order list.Another top performer for the Trojans this weekend was redshirt senior Conor McCullough. The transfer from Princeton won the men’s weight throw and chalked a new meet and school record. On McCullough’s second throw he notched 74-7.00, which broke a meet record that had been in place since 2007.“Our throwers have a lot more in the tank, although they had PR’s as well,” Gilbert said.McCullough smashed the competition, winning by almost three feet. In addition, three of his six throws were good enough to win the event. After his performance, McCullough is three-for-three in weight throw competitions in his career. Friday’s performance puts him in third place in the country.“Today we performed outstanding[ly] in most events,” Gilbert said. “We had national-caliber efforts and wins in the women’s hurdles, sprints, middle distance, relays and men’s sprints.”In both the men’s and women’s 60m dashes the Trojans took home first. On the women’s side of the competition, freshman Ky Westbrook placed first with a time of 7.34. The Women of Troy also took second, third, fourth and sixth in the event. For the men, junior Andre De Grasse set a PR and took first with a time of 6.60. The time is good enough for fifth on the NCAA descending order list nationally.De Grasse had a busy weekend as he also won the 200m dash. With a time of 20.79, which was a new personal record for De Grasse, he placed fifth on the NCAA indoor list for the season.In the women’s 200m, redshirt junior Tynia Gaither ran her fastest time of the season, a 23.44, and won the event. The time is also the eighth fastest in the nation. The Women of Troy had great success in the 200m. In addition to Gaither’s first-place finish, USC also took second, third, fifth, seventh, eighth, ninth and 13th.Despite traveling with significantly fewer athletes than the other teams at the meet, both USC squads finished second in the scoring behind home-team Nebraska.Up next for the Trojans are two meets over Feb. 13 and 14: the Don Kirby Elite Meet held in Albuquerque, N.M., and the Husky Classic run in Seattle, Wash.last_img read more

Syracuse splits final 2 games of Colorado State Classic

first_imgFor the second time this season, it looked like Syracuse (8-13) had blown a seventh inning lead. On Feb. 8, San Diego State scored six runs in the bottom of the final inning to defeat the Orange. After leading 7-2 against Dayton (7-9), the Orange allowed four runs in the top of the seventh again.Leading 7-6 with two outs and a runner on third on Sunday, head coach Shannon Doepking elected to leave in sophomore pitcher Sophie Dandola. Dandola had given up all six runs, just like against San Diego State. Yet this time, Doepking’s confidence in her pitcher paid off. Dandola forced a groundout to sophomore Gabby Teran as SU took the first game of the doubleheader by one run.SU did most of its damage in the second inning behind a two run double from sophomore Michala Maciolek and a two-run triple from Teran. In the fifth, Maciolek came back with another two out double to stretch the lead to 7-1. Come the final inning, that proved to be enough.Senior Alexa Romero pitched a scoreless four innings. She struck out nine batters and allowed only two hits. After throwing 53 pitches, Romero was relieved by Dandola in the fifth inning.Syracuse couldn’t get off to a hot start in the second leg of the doubleheader against Colorado State (17-4). The Rams scored in the first inning with a two-run homer from senior Danni Klein. Come the third inning, the Orange were trailing by eight runs. Sophomore Miranda Hearn started and pitched the whole game. She conceded four earned runs, and she totaled five strikeouts. Her ERA rose to 7.11 with the loss. SU totaled two hits and only put five runners on base. Colorado State eventually won 8-0 after five innings.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse will be back in action on Wednesday, March 13 at Kentucky before beginning Atlantic Coast Conference play next weekend.
