Inflation hedging, commodities hit fourth-quarter return at ATP

first_imgDenmark’s statutory pension fund ATP suffered a big loss on investments in the fourth quarter of last year, which cut the return it made over the rest of the year by nearly 40%, dragging the full-year return down to DKK5.36bn (€720m), or 6.5%.The year before, 2013, the fund reported a 17.9% return.The 2014 return – before tax on pension savings returns – was 38.6% lower than the DKK8.73bn return posted for the first nine months of the year alone.In its annual results statement, ATP said its investment portfolio made a DKK3.38bn loss in the fourth quarter. Carsten Stendevad, chief executive, said: “Investment activities generated a return of DKK6.1bn – before both expenses and tax – with most of ATP’s investments performing well.“Exceptions were oil investments and the long-term hedging strategy against rising inflation, which produced negative returns.”Inflation hedging activities alone – part of the pension fund’s inflation risk class within its investment portfolio – lost ATP DKK5.9bn over the year.ATP said a sudden rise in inflation, which would water down the buying power of pensions, was a significant risk for the scheme’s pensioners.“Therefore, ATP has bought protection against rising inflation since 2009,” it said.This insurance strategy consisted of inflation caps and swaptions, it said.“The big fall in inflation and bond yields with a long time remaining to maturity affected values very negatively,” it said.However, within the inflation risk class, DKK1.7bn and DKK1.9bn returns on property and infrastructure, respectively, helped reduce the loss for that category to DKK2.8bn.The commodities risk class ended the year with a loss of DKK2.0bn, with the portfolio consisting entirely of oil bonds and oil-related financial instruments.Over the year, the oil price fell to around $55 a barrel from $95.Equities generated DKK8.5bn for the pension fund during the year, and the credit risk class produced a return of DKK776m.ATP’s investment portfolio is only around 20% of its total assets, with the vast majority invested in the hedging portfolio, designed to underpin the yield guarantees it gives its members.This hedging portfolio – consisting mainly of bonds and related instruments – ballooned in 2014 as market interest rates dwindled and in some cases went below zero.Including the hedging portfolio, ATP made a total return over the year of DKK138.3bn, or 23.3%, on total assets, which grew to DKK823.6bn by the end of 2014, from DKK677.5bn.Looking ahead to the full 2015 year, ATP said it was applying a new long-term target.This has been set at 7% of bonus potential at the beginning of the year, it said, equivalent to just over 9% before tax and expenses.last_img read more

Syracuse’s walk-ons enjoy NCAA Tournament run from separated vantage point

first_img“Hopefully on the court,” Autry Jr. said, “but probably in the stands.”They enjoyed celebrating behind the bench before joining the team outside the locker room. But they didn’t get the opportunity to shoot around on the court like veteran walk-ons Doyin Akintobe-Adeyeye, Mike Sutton and Christian White.“I probably wouldn’t be eligible,” Autry Jr. said. “We’d go get it. All five of us. We score in bunches.”It was then that Autry Jr. pointed to Feldman — the only walk-on to make a basket this season — next to him.“This kid averaged 28 points per game in high school. He doesn’t look like it.”Belbey said he’d rather Syracuse make it easy like it was in the first two rounds, than for him to be forced to enter around the eighth overtime.Autry Jr. likened the experience to where they sit in the Carrier Dome, which is on the second row of the bench. Even sitting behind the press table, though, the group of walk-ons tried to yell out to their on-court teammates when a shooter had the ball. They were useful in anyway possible.It’s still up in the air just where they’ll be watching the game on Friday. But they enjoyed the courtside seats for the first two games, and won’t complain if that’s where they are again.“It’s interesting,” Feldman said. “It’s different. But it’s still fun.” Comments Published on March 24, 2016 at 6:48 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 CHICAGO — Shaun Belbey felt a little more nervous watching Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament games in St. Louis, but it wasn’t totally because his team’s season was on the line.Belbey, along with all the other freshmen walk-ons, watched the game from the first row of the Scottrade Center because there wasn’t enough room for them on the bench.For 5-foot-10 Belbey, it was like he was watching the game as a fan, and not from his typical seat on the Orange bench.“I was kind of apart from the team a little bit,” Belbey said. “… It’s a different view, it’s a different feel. You’re with all the people watching.”The freshmen walk-on group in St. Louis consisted of Belbey, Adrian Autry Jr., Ky Feldman and Jonathan Radner. They still don’t know what’s next in terms of their seating arrangements for Chicago, where the Orange (21-13, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) face 11th-seeded Gonzaga (28-7, 15-3 West Coast) at 9:40 p.m. on Friday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMORE COVERAGE:Syracuse’s practice time thrown out of whack by late gameSyracuse basketball players vote for best and worst dancers on team before ‘Big Dance’ Sweet 16LIVE BLOG: Follow along during Media Day for Syracuse and Gonzaga in ChicagoSyracuse basketball predictions for Sweet 16 matchup with GonzagaFor Brad Pike, planning Syracuse’s meals requires close attention to detail Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories NCAA Tournament: On the Beat previews Syracuse-Gonzaga basketball Sweet 16 game from the United CenterSyracuse basketball opponent preview: What to know about GonzagaBlum: Syracuse playing rest of NCAA Tournament on borrowed timeSyracuse basketball roundtable: How to handle Gonzaga’s threats and how SU can improveWhy Tyler Roberson can be a consistently dominant rebounder for Syracuselast_img read more
