Annuity providers will also be unable to offer men higher payments than women although they live about two-and-a-half years less. Life and medical cover will also be affected by the ban, which takes effect in 2012.City experts condemned the move. “In defiance of common sense and logic, insurers will be barred from pricing their products on the basis of risk,” said Ros Altmann, director-general of over-50s insurer Saga. The Association of British Insurers estimates the ruling will add 25 per cent to car insurance for women under 25; reduce men’s retirement income by eight per cent and add 20 per cent to women’s life insurance. Darren Philp at the National Association of Pension Funds said the ruling would “lead to a worsening of people’s pension incomes.”Mohammad Khan, director of PwC’s actuarial practice, said: “The majority of motor claims arise from young male drivers and there is a real risk that if their premiums drop, it could encourage them to buy more powerful cars causing even worse accidents.” ld add to insurers’ administrative burden. “Over the next 20 months insurers will have to make large scale changes including updating and changing computer systems; ensuring insurance brokers have the right pricing information; adjusting insurance renewals and updating all sales material,” it said in a statement. Others expressed fears that the ruling may be extended to decisions based on age – another key factor used by pension and insurance providers.“Any ruling against discriminating an insurance premium based on age would have a far greater impact on consumers and the insurance industry,” said Khan. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The Lloyds share price: here’s what I expect next

first_imgThe Lloyds share price: here’s what I expect next Roland Head | Saturday, 27th February, 2021 | More on: LLOY Last week’s 2020 results from Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) received a cautious reception from the market. Lloyds’ share price ended the day flat, but I didn’t think the 2020 numbers were too bad. After a tough first half of the year, the bank’s performance was much stronger during the second part of the year.I’m interested in Lloyds shares because I think the bank could be a classic value play. The shares are trading 20% below book value and my analysis suggests the bank’s dividend payout could recover strongly from 2021.5G 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…A turning point?The PRA — the UK’s banking regulator — barred the big banks from paying dividends last year. Lloyds’ shareholders missed out on the 2019 final dividend and the 2020 interim payout.The dividend ban caused Lloyds’ share price to crash, but the regulator was worried that the pandemic would trigger a wave of bad debt, leaving the banks short of cash.So far, this hasn’t happened. What did happen is that banks including Lloyds allowed dividend cash to pile up on their balance sheets, creating a buffer to handle future losses. I estimate that by cancelling the dividend, Lloyds saved around £2.3bn last year.Banks have now been allowed to restart dividend payments. Lloyds shareholders will receive a payout of 0.57p per share for 2020, giving a yield of 1.5%. That’s the maximum allowed by the PRA for 2020, but if profits recover in 2021, a much bigger dividend should be possible.Profits could double in 2021We don’t yet know how quickly the economy will bounce back when Covid-19 restrictions finally end. The bank’s management admit that government support measures and payment holidays have probably prevented — or delayed — some business failures and job losses.However, Lloyds’ accounts also show that both consumers and businesses were hoarding cash and repaying debt during 2020. These cash reserves could support a strong recovery for the economy.City banking analysts certainly expect Lloyds profits to stage a strong recovery. Ahead of Wednesday’s full-year results, consensus forecasts suggested that Lloyds’ pre-tax profit could double in 2021. A dividend of 1.6p was pencilled in for 2021, giving a yield of 4.1%.Lloyds share price: what next?There are clear risks here. As a UK-only bank, Lloyds’ performance is heavily linked to the wider UK economy. If the pandemic is followed by a long recession, then the bank’s losses could be greater than expected. This could limit dividend payments.Even if things go well, delivering growth could be tough. Lloyds is already one of the UK’s largest financial institutions. Where can it go next?According to management, the bank’s new strategy will be to focus on becoming the “preferred financial partner” for its existing clients. That means focusing on areas such as wealth management and insurance for existing customers. Corporate clients may be targeted with add-on services such as foreign exchange.I’ve been wrong about Lloyds share price before. But my view today is that Lloyds is in good shape and could satisfy my requirements as a dividend share. I’d consider buying the stock as a long-term hold at current levels.

Pacific Asia Museum to Open Newly Renovated Chinese Gallery

first_img Make a comment Community News On October 18, 2013, Pacific Asia Museum will open the newly renovated Ralph and Angelyn Riffenburgh Gallery featuring Chinese art as part of its continued renovations of the permanent collection galleries.In 2010, Pacific Asia Museum launched a long-range plan to renovate and reinterpret its permanent collection galleries with a thematic approach to significantly enhance the visitor experience. The museum successfully opened the Introductory Gallery featuring The Art of Pacific Asia in 2011 and the new Gallery of Korean Art in 2012. Through 2015, the museum will continue renovating several other galleries to reflect up-to-date scholarship and better present its permanent collection to visitors while protecting it for future generations through upgrades to climate controls, lighting and display cases.The Ralph and Angelyn Riffenburgh Gallery has featured the Pacific Asia Museum’s significant collection of Chinese ceramics since 1999. This renovation brings it in line with the new thematic approach in the museum’s permanent galleries, and displays a broader range of the arts of China including paintings, textiles and sculptural works, which will benefit from the state of the art improvements in climate control in the gallery. The five themes in the gallery are Philosophical and Religious Ideas, Art and Commerce, Tradition and Innovation, Status and Adornment and “Reading” Symbols. Within each of these sections, multiple objects in different media give the visitor a deeper understanding of the role art has played in Chinese society for centuries. For example, the Tradition and Innovation section will use a combination of contemporary and historic art to show how artists and artisans have responded to and reinterpreted traditions throughout history.Notable works in the gallery include an excellently-preserved 15th-century painting of a lohan, a carved nephrite bowl, and a rare late Ming chair. The space also includes a number of interactive stations that add further opportunities to engage with the concepts laid out in the exhibition.“As China continues to grow in importance on the international stage, it’s vital that Pacific Asia Museum works to increase cultural literacy in our community,” said Curator Bridget Bray. “This updated gallery reflects the rich artistic heritage of China and allows our visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the culture, whether they share in that heritage or have an interest in learning more.”The renovation and exhibition are generously supported by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, Margaret Leong Checca and Michael Checca, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the David Kamansky Fund, Violet Ouyang, Maria Low Way, Albert and Yvonne Chang, June and Simon Li, Kenneth and Louise Tang, and the China Society of Southern California for the project, as well as the Collectors’ Circle which will make the presentation of contemporary Chinese art possible in the gallery. The inclusion of contemporary art will help execute the museum’s mission of advancing intercultural understanding through the arts of Asia and the Pacific Islands in an increasingly relevant way in this global era.About Pacific Asia MuseumPacific Asia Museum is among the few institutions in the United States dedicated exclusively to the arts and culture of Asia and the Pacific Islands.

Criticism levelled at conditions in Limerick Prison

first_imgLinkedin Built for 185 prisoners but 322 detained in July 2010LIMERICK Prison came for criticism in the Irish Prison Chaplains Annual Report 2010, citing that it was originally built for 185 prisoners, but on July 23 last, 322 prisoners were detained. The report said that some Irish prisons were noted as “inhumane and degrading.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Email Print Facebook WhatsApp Twitter Advertisement The report says that “where in-cell sanitation is not available (Mountjoy, Limerick and Cork) overcrowding involves two, three, four or more prisoners in cells designed for one or two, in which prisoners have to defecate in a chamber pot in the presence of the other prisoners, in a confined space which is also their living and eating area.“Bed capacity in Limerick is 290, and structured activity is available for a maximum of 195 prisoners”.The Report, released last week, noted the escalating drug use, overcrowding and “degrading” conditions within the prison system.With such overcrowding prevalent, it describes Ireland’s prison policy as a disaster and is strongly critical of the Department of Justice, the Irish Prison service and Minister for Justice, Dermot Ahern.“Conditions are degrading, humiliating and completely unacceptable. It is not acceptable to cite cost factors, even in a recession, as an excuse to continue to incarcerate prisoners in such degrading conditions”.It adds that “conditions in many of our prisons are an insult to the decency of any human being and an affront to the basic tenets of decency,” and claims “a culture of conformity exists within the system which resists any criticism or challenge”.In addition, St Patrick’s Institution for young people and children (16 to 21) is highlighted as a cause of serious concern.It is further claimed that most prisons are drug-filled.In 2000, a national survey of prisoners found that 52 per cent had used heroin and five years later a subsequent survey found that 59 per cent of male sentenced prisoners had a drug dependency.27,227 random drug tests were carried out in Irish prisons in 2009 and 7,309 tested positive for heroin, 6,110 tested positive for cannabis 675 tested positive for cocaine, some testing positive for more than one drug.The report recommends the pressing need to explore non-custodial options for prisoners who have committed less serious offences.“Making our prisons safer and drug free is in everyone’s interest. The only obstacle is political will”.

However, new home sales rose 6.4 percent in April to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 433,000, which followed an upward revision of 11,000 units for the prior two months.”Movements were mixed for adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs). According to Freddie Mac, the 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid ARM averaged 2.96 percent (0.3 point), unchanged from the last survey. Meanwhile, the 1-year ARM averaged 2.41 percent (0.4 point), down from 2.43 percent.Bankrate.com’s weekly national survey also showed declines for fixed rates, though adjustable rates were up. According to the finance site’s latest data, the 30-year fixed last week averaged 4.25 percent, while the 15-year fixed was down to 3.35 percent. The 5/1 ARM, on the other hand, edged up a few basis points to 3.24 percent.With the Federal Reserve tapering its stimulus purchases, analysts for Bankrate say it’s outside pressures pushing rates down: “A number of factors come into play: disappointing U.S. economic growth at the start of 2014; slower growth in emerging markets; the prospect of European stimulus measures; and geopolitical issues around the globe, to name a few.
