It was unclear when Los Angeles County might act to lift its current restrictions. Stores inside enclosed shopping malls were allowed to reopen this weekend, but only for curbside pickup service.“Thank you, Governor Newsom. As we continue to battle this virus,this policy will make all the difference to the small businesses in ourcommunities that are struggling to survive this crisis,” County SupervisorJanice Hahn tweeted Monday.Retail does not include personal services such as hair salons, nailsalons and barbershops.Monday’s announcement came as Gov. Gavin Newsom released guidelines for resuming in-person services at churches and other houses of worship.“Together, our actions have helped bend the curve and reduce infections in our state. As sectors continue to open with changes that aim to lower risk, remember that COVID-19 is still present in our communities,” said Dr. Sonia Angell, the state’s public health officer and director of the health department. “As more of us may be leaving our homes, keeping physical distance, wearing face coverings in public, and washing your hands frequently are more important than ever to help protect yourself and those around you.”Reopening is subject to approval by county public health departments. It was unclear when Los Angeles and Orange counties might act to facilitate the resumption of in-person shopping.Los Angeles County retail businesses inside enclosed shopping malls were allowed to reopen this weekend, but only for curbside pickup service.

The announcement that Viagogo, a fast-growing, born-on-the-internet company, is expanding its operations in Limerick and creating 100 extra jobs is a great boost for the Mid West and a great example of what is possible through our regional jobs strategy.”The Viagogo Group operates www.viagogo.com, the world’s largest ticket marketplace and the new jobs are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.The roles available in Limerick include international customer services, sales, software development, finance and operations.IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan said that Viagogo had made great strides since establishing in Limerick just last year and confirmation that it was to more than double its workforce was evidence of that great progress.“This news further enhances Limerick’s reputation as an excellent base for technology-based businesses. The available skillbase, a deciding factor in Viagogo’s expansion plans, is a huge plus in Limerick’s favour.“Limerick’s recent success in attracting foreign investment is a great example of the results that can be achieved when the business community from across the region joins together to show what great opportunities there are to invest here in Limerick,” Mr Shanahan added.

PPF grows in-house management team with hire of LDI head

first_imgThe UK’s £22.6bn (€30.9bn) Pension Protection Fund (PPF) has begun building its in-house management team, hiring a senior member of the Aviva Staff Pension Scheme as its inaugural head of liability driven investment (LDI).Trevor Welsh will join in October, leaving the Aviva fund after three years as its head of UK sovereign and LDI.Welsh’s position as head of LDI at the lifeboat fund will likely see him oversee its new hybrid asset portfolio, aimed as a liability matching portfolio and set to grow to £3bn, or 12.5% of assets, by 2017. As part of the portfolio’s growth, the PPF this week appointed Pramerica Investment Management to a £400m direct lending mandate that would see the manager offer inflation-linked loans to firms. Before joining the insurer’s pension fund in 2012, Welsh spent 17 years at Aviva Investors, and a further 14 years at UBS, where he was the Swiss bank’s head of fixed income futures.He will report to the PPF’s CIO Barry Kenneth, who said the hire would allow the fund to exert greater influence over asset allocation as it began bringing investments in-house.“Taking in-house part of our LDI is a key step in updating our investment model and crucial in helping us meet our funding target and future aspirations,” Kenneth said.He added: “Trevor’s expertise in LDI will be invaluable to our development and I very much look forward to working together.”For his part, Welsh said joining the PPF as it began to insource investments was “hugely exciting”.Kenneth previously told IPE that control, rather than management cost, was the driving factor behind its decision to bring management of some of its portfolio in-house.“We know our framework better than anyone else, so, by definition, we should be able to manage it, knowing everything else within the fund, and do so in a more controlled fashion,” he said at the time.During his time at the £14bn Aviva pension fund, Welsh would have helped broker a £5bn longevity swap, at the time the largest ever completed.For more from Barry Kenneth on the PPF’s investment strategy, see the upcoming September issue of IPElast_img read more
