BlueCrest in second spot with AllBlue

first_img BlueCrest in second spot with AllBlue Thursday 23 September 2010 8:01 pm BLUECREST AllBlue yesterday became the second largest listed hedge fund after it tapped investors for £83.3m in its third share placing in nine months.The only larger listed hedge fund is BH Macro, which was floated by Brevan Howard in 2008. BlueCrest AllBlue now has assets of £904m across its three share classes, while BH Macro has a combined £1.17bn, according to data from RBS.BlueCrest AllBlue placed a total of 52.6m new shares with its investors, equivalent to just under a tenth of its share capital. It had previously raised £101m in December last year and £349m in June.Mark James, a managing director in the investment funds team at RBS, said the placings prove “there is still considerable demand for listed hedge funds, despite the growth of competing structures such as UCITS III”.“It shows there is strong support for funds managed by a single hedge fund group, such as BlueCrest, which offer exposure to a range of hedge fund strategies,” he added. whatsapp KCS-content Sharecenter_img whatsapp Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndo Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orglast_img read more

BEST OF THE BROKERS

first_imgMonday 14 February 2011 8:11 pm whatsapp BEST OF THE BROKERS HARGREAVES LANSDOWNMorgan Stanley rates the financial services firm “overweight” with an increased target price of 703p. The broker thinks that the firm still has potential for positive earnings surprises and has raised its target by 15 per cent following the firm’s half-year results. It also expects further margin expansion driven by operating leverage and a positive outlook for cash flows helped by the pension tax changes in April.AQUARIUS PLATINUMGoldman Sachs has started covering the miner with a “neutral” rating and a 12-month target price of 480p. GS is bullish on platinum prices, buoyed by Chinese industrialisation, and expects Aquarius to grow through the expansion of its mines. Aquarius currently trades at a discount to its peers, likely owing to the shorter average life of its mines that presents greater risk, the broker adds.BRITISH LANDJP Morgan Cazenove rates the property developer “overweight” with a 625p target price. The broker sees BL as one of the best picks in the UK retail property market, alongside Land Securities and Metric. British Land has the highest increase in development supply and has some of the best property valuations along with a strong balance sheet, protecting it from headwinds in the real estate market, the broker believes.

Journalists’ association targeted by secret police

RSF learns that state security police moved on 21 March to halt one of the Association’s journalism classes in Havana by stopping three independent journalists (Jorge Olivera Castillo, Dorka Céspedes Vela and Omar Rodríguez Saludes) as they were on their way to the house of the Association’s president, Ricardo González Alfonso. Two other journalists already at the house (Carmelo Díaz Fernández and Victor Manuel Domínguez García) were intercepted as they left by a policeman who warned them the classes were illegal. Later, Association member Iván García Quintero was interrogated by two state security police about its activities. He was summoned by police for the same reason on 10 October last year. Similar incidents occurred at the end of last October. Nine journalists were warned by the authorities not to attend the courses or help organise them. The Association notes however that nothing in the country’s penal code outlaws the freedom to teach. In Cuba, where the Constitution says “freedom of expression and the media is subordinate to the goals of a socialist society,” only a government-controlled media is allowed. A hundred or so independent journalists, grouped into about 20 press agencies and other associations not recognised by the government, are constantly harassed and since 1995, about 50 journalists have fled abroad. to go further Follow the news on Cuba News CubaAmericas News October 15, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

I’ve received a great deal of correspondence that patients are concerned about access and neighbors are concerned about traffic.”The project’s official applicant, American General Design of Pasadena, requested housing concessions in order to build 20 residential units on the second and third floors of the three-story Green Street building, and to construct a new four-story 79,365 square-foot multi-family residential building with 117 units at the Catalina Street address, currently the site of the Center’s parking lot.“All the tenants [of the Thatcher Building] and a lot of residents don’t want the development to happen at all,” said Angelina Chen, a member of the community against the project. “We don’t even want a tree to be taken out of the parking lot.”American General Design of Pasadena representative Robert Montano said the designer will work to address the array of different concerns doctors, residents, patients and nearby merchants may have.“They all have unique positions,” Montano said of the project’s dissenters. “The entire point of this conversation will be to address [those] concerns and to hear anything we’ve not heard before.”Montano went on to say that it’s still very early in the process and the project may drastically change by the time it is actually approved by Pasadena.“We’re at the very start of a multi-year process with the City of Pasadena, we’ve only taken the very first step. We’ve not gone through design review or the planning department,” he said. “This project may look nothing like it does today — this is the way the CIty’s procedure works.”Last month, a group of over 100 of the project’s detractors went to a city meeting to make plain their opposition to the plan to convert the medical center.“This building has a legacy of medicine, a half-century of tradition,” said Sandra Greenberg, a pediatrician, during the meeting. “Once this construction happens, our patients won’t want to come back.”At that meeting, Pasadena Zoning Hearing Officer Paul Novak Thursday rejected an application for an Affordable Housing Concession Permit relative to 12 “very low income” units planned for the project.The Thatcher Medical Center was reportedly purchased jointly last September by Tucson-based real estate investment firm Holualoa Cos. and local developer Patrick Chraghchian. The buyers are said to have paid $28 million.Wilson’s town hall meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the Founders Hall of Polytechnic School located at 1030 East California Boulevard.For questions and more information, please call 626-441-4802.last_img read more

Pasadena School District Joins Suit Challenging Federal Rule on Distribution of Coronavirus Aid

first_img Top of the News The Pasadena Unified School District has joined a lawsuit filed Wednesday challenging a new U.S. Department of Education rule that they say will divert vitally needed Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act funding away from public schools and toward private ones.The district is joining the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, other districts and parents of students around the country.NAACP v. DeVos seeks to reverse a rule put forward by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos earlier this month that alters the way funds must be distributed to schools under the CARES Act, the organization said in a written statement. It’s joined in the litigation by school districts including the PUSD. Several state attorneys general have filed similar suits.“Under the rule, school districts must divert more funding for ‘equitable services’ to private school students than the law requires or face onerous restrictions on the use of those funds in their public schools,” according to the statement. “Both options violate the clear language and intent of the CARES Act and will undermine district efforts to adequately serve students who desperately need services and support due to the impacts of the pandemic.”The rule provides the school district with two options to distribute the funds, but neither is acceptable, PUSD Board of Education Member Scott Phelps saidIt mandates that districts set aside a portion of the CARES funding equal to the percentage of students living in the districts who attend private schools, Phelps said. More than 30 percent of students living within the PUSD’s area attend private schools.“As I understand it, estimated allocation to PUSD is about $15 million,” he said. “So 30 percent to 40 percent would be $5 million to $6 million.”“It would be a significant amount,” Phelps said. “Right now, we’re negotiating the cost of online curriculum with various online curriculum providers. And it’s pretty pricey.”The rule provides for a second option for school districts, which Phelps said contains “a poison pill.”Districts may set aside a portion of the CARES Act Funding for private schools equal to the participating private schools’ proportion of low-income students, which in the case of the private schools within PUSD, is about 2 percent, he said.But under that scenario, districts are barred from using the remaining funds for any campuses that are not designated Title I, denoting a low-income student population of 40 percent or greater, according to Phelps and the NAACP.Since PUSD has five schools that don’t qualify under Title I, those campuses would be forbidden from receiving any of the CARES Act funding, according to Phelps.“We think it’s in our best interest to join this complaint and try to get an injunction, he said.NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson said the Department of Education was “robbing” public schools of money in order to divert the funds to private schools.“This is a new low, even for an administration intent on promoting inequality in education,” he said. “Children and families across the nation are facing unprecedented risks to their safety and educational opportunities. COVID-19 has magnified the hardships for children from low-income households and diminished access to quality instruction, digital technology, nutrition, social development, and other vital resources. These are consequences that will last a lifetime.”The plaintiffs are being represented pro bono by the law firm Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP as well as the Education Law Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center. 85 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Make a comment STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Subscribe Your email address will not be published.

Housing Activity Enters 2021 ‘On Strong Footing’

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Housing Activity Enters 2021 ‘On Strong Footing’ Previous: Fixed-Rates Inch Closer to 3% Mark Next: NY Court of Appeals Rules on Foreclosure Deceleration, SOL Share Save The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago According to BuildFax’s January 2021 “Housing Health Report,” single-family housing authorizations decreased just 0.36% from December 2020’s totals, remaining relatively flat, partly attributed to rising building material costs and a lack of affordable lots. Despite the slight dip in month-over-month activity, new housing supply remains strong, with year-over-year activity up 9.89% and the trailing three-month outlook, covering the months of November 2020 to January 2021, up 11% despite a continued tight national housing supply.“Housing activity enters 2021 on a strong footing,” said Jonathan Kanarek, Managing Director of BuildFax. “January marks the sixth month of year-over-year increases in new and existing housing supply, which should be welcome news for the broader economy.”The report found that housing maintenance volume and spending increased 8.37% and 17.87% respectively, year-over-year. Additionally, remodeling volume and expenses—a subset of maintenance including home renovations, additions and alterations—increased 10.04% and 12.37% year-over-year, respectively.Homeowners were hesitant to enter the market in January, leading to new home inventory lows. Consequently, existing housing activity remains strong as homeowners choose to invest in their properties rather than re-enter the market.“However, despite increasing new construction, homeowners are facing a severe housing shortage,” said Kanarek. “Homebuyers are likely to face a competitive spring homebuying season, as sellers remain hesitant to re-enter the market, home prices soar and interest rates slowly tick upwards.” BuildFax’s “Housing Health Report” was compiled by examining properties in the U.S. between the years 2013 and 2021.
