F&C boosted by jump in assets under management

first_img F&C Asset Management reported higher-than-expected assets under management in its third quarter, boosted by the takeover of rival Thames River and rising equity and bond markets. F&C said AuM swelled 13.5 per cent to £108.2bn in the quarter to September 30, beating analyst forecasts for between £105bn and £107.7bn after winning £600m of net new business.Analysts at JP Morgan Cazenove described the performance as encouraging but retained their “neutral” rating on the stock.KBC Peel Hunt confirmed a “buy” recommendation and noted the introduction of Sherborne Investors to the shareholder list was a “clear catalyst to improved shareholder returns.”Edward Bramson’s Sherborne lifted its stake to 14.6 percent in August, triggering speculation a bid was imminent and raising doubts about the future of F&C Chief Executive Alain Grisay. Sherborne has not outlined its strategy.F&C’s results reflect improving confidence among investors seeking extra returns or ways to hedge their risks after a period of caution in the wake of the global financial crisis.F&C inflows over the quarter were broadly in line with larger rival Aberdeen Asset Management’s (ADN.L) 621 million pounds net new business, while smaller rival Henderson (HGGH.L) posted outflows.Larger rival Schroders Investment Management (SDR.L) is due to report on November 9.SPECIALIST TARGETF&C saw outflows of about 1.1 billion pounds, mostly from institutional funds, offset by inflows of more than 5.8 billion pounds, boosted mainly by £4.2bn from Thames River and inflows into institutional business.This is in marked contrast with the previous quarter, when F&C shed £605m.A stronger euro versus sterling added about £3.3bn. Positive market movements in equities and fixed-income increased assets by £4.8bn.F&C said it secured £1.6bn of new business commitments at the end of the quarter and was targeting new business in specialist and higher-margin products.“We expect institutional redemptions to slow further in 2011, following the trend in 2010,” it said in a statement, adding it also expected weaker growth in new institutional business in the fourth quarter.F&C completed the acquisition of Thames River Capital in September, paying £33.6m plus £15m to retain key staff.

Archbishop of Canterbury calls for primates’ gathering

first_img The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Washington, DC Youth Minister Lorton, VA [Lambeth Palace] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby today wrote to all 37 primates inviting them to attend a special primates’ gathering in Canterbury to reflect and pray together concerning the future of the Anglican Communion.The meeting, to be held in January 2016, would be an opportunity for primates to discuss key issues face to face, including a review of the structures of the Anglican Communion and to decide together their approach to the next Lambeth Conference.The agenda will be set by common agreement with all primates encouraged to send in contributions. It is likely to include the issues of religiously motivated violence, the protection of children and vulnerable adults, the environment and human sexuality.Welby said: “I have suggested to all primates that we need to consider recent developments but also look afresh at our ways of working as a Communion and especially as primates, paying proper attention to developments in the past.“Our way forward must respect the decisions of Lambeth 1998, and of the various Anglican Consultative Council and primates’ meetings since then. It must also be a way forward, guided by the absolute imperative for the church to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, to make disciples and to worship and live in holiness, and recognizing that the way in which proclamation happens and the pressures on us vary greatly between provinces. We each live in a different context.“The difference between our societies and cultures, as well as the speed of cultural change in much of the global north, tempts us to divide as Christians: when the command of Scripture, the prayer of Jesus, the tradition of the church and our theological understanding urges unity. A 21st-century Anglican family must have space for deep disagreement, and even mutual criticism, so long as we are faithful to the revelation of Jesus Christ, together.“We have no Anglican Pope. Our authority as a church is dispersed, and is ultimately found in Scripture, properly interpreted. In that light I long for us to meet together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and to seek to find a way of enabling ourselves to set a course which permits us to focus on serving and loving each other, and above all on the proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ.”The proposed dates for the meeting are Jan. 11-16, 2016.Welby will also extend an invitation to Archbishop Foley Beach of the Anglican Church in North America or his representative to be present for part of the time. Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Anglican Communion, September 16, 2015 at 5:40 pm I find it unfortunate that the archbishop only sites Scripture as a source of unity whereas the lLambeth quadrilateral and the classic scripture, tradition and reason would have been a much more complete statement. Christina Cleveland says: Primates Meeting 2016 Posted Sep 16, 2015 September 16, 2015 at 9:27 pm Rev. Van Horne is correct. History again has an Archbishop of Canterbury who will not show moral leadership for ALL Episcopalians / Anglicans who wish to use our minds and hearts to further the directives placed on us by Christ. Where is the leadership which states conservative Anglicans in other parts of the world have no right to dictate their views on theology to those Anglicans / Episcopalians far from their shores? When churches breakaway, they are saying, “We do not want to abide by your rules.” Fine, this is their right, but why ask them to keep coming into your home telling you why you are wrong to hold your beliefs?

I am embarrassed to learn that the Archbishop of Canterbury has spoken to the ‘Archbishop’ of ACNA, and, apparently made a personal invitation to him. ACNA is most certainly NOT Anglican- Anglicans in this country are known as Episcopalians, just as we are known in like manner in Scotland. When will good folk recall and remember our history and Samuel Seabury’s consecration as Bishop at the hands of Bishops of the Scottish Episcopal Church…. and that was also due to a catastrophic ‘failure of vision’ on the part of English Archbishops, Bishops and the Crown.However, let’s not get into too much of a kerfuffle, let’s take a longer historical perspective and recognize that we simply need to get on with the job, love, hope, trust, pray, show compassion, cross the road to help, assist and heal our wounded brothers and sisters– and seek healing as well.Pray, be the Presence of the Incarnate Christ in a fractured world. Stop fretting and worrying about adiaphora (which only turn us into nattering Nabobs of negativity) and trust God, yourself, Our Lady and all the Saints!

However, I have no problem with Archbishop Welby’s invitation to the proposed meeting of Anglican primates. In the spirit of Christ we should never close the door on anyone Who desires to have dialogue with us. I would not have any problem with inviting Catholic or others in this spirit.

The invitation rewards a denomination that is schismatic, has broken away from the Episcopal Church (USA), and which is in no way part of the global Anglican Communion as I understand it. This would seem to be a way to open the door to their recognition as being in Communion with Canterbury, and rewards them for their ultraconservative and anti-GLBT policies. Sad.

Bravo Archbishop! Thank you for taking the first of what will hopefully be many steps in bringing ACNA into full communion with Canterbury, thus solidifying the relationships it already has with the greater Anglican Communion, and providing a way forward for individuals, congregations, clergy, bishops, and dioceses that reject the unfortunate actions of a few. This is exciting indeed! Randy Marks says: Canon Ian Elliott Davies says: September 16, 2015 at 6:02 pm This is good and hopeful news.Pretending that the ACNA has nothing to do with the Anglican Communion is delusional.These dear ones are at the very least our separated brethren.Praying for unity, common cause partnerships and the highest degree of Communion possible.They are us and we are them.

Rector Knoxville, TN Michael Grear says: September 17, 2015 at 12:47 pm “In this church there shall be no outcasts.”Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning.When the conservatives ruled the day in TEC they were unwelcoming and stigmatized the lgbt community. Now that progressives have come into power they have worked with fierce determination to be just as uncharitable and non-inclusive to conservatives.Perhaps there are valuable lessons to be learned when one is in the minority? Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Primates Meeting, September 20, 2015 at 11:52 pm I think the crisis predates Archbishop Welby, crises unsolved by a covenant or a proposed two-tired membership. I feel for ECUSA as more of our churches close and more of ACNA are planted and grow – did we in ECUSA think that the LGBT community would run to our open arms after we had beaten them off and their spirits down for years, centuries in an effort to walk and hold the line? LGBT community has heart and mind, and reality is that forgiveness and healing aren’t cheap or instant by and for anyone.Bishop Curry knows how to act among colleagues – could “we should sic Michael Curry” be seen as another attempt at minority manipulation? I know religion is political and that politics can become a particular religion. Each (politics & religion) is about power and their relationship with each other is about power. So what would Jesus do (WWJD) about power and with power to bring life for those who have been marginalized is one big question I would want the primates to discuss.BTW when our Anglican ancestors in the US decided to stop praying for the king and started praying for President and Congress, isn’t that when we left England? And then through Scotland we went back – our flag tells us that. Back and forth, back and forth. We US citizens love our independence as long as we can rule and control the world in our comfortable isolationism politically and religiously. I imagine it might take a verbal gas can by the Archbishop – fire can purify and not simply destroy all – in order for oil and water to co-exist in the same container. Of all the provinces our uniqueness in not having our own Archbishop can be a gift to the Anglican Communion. We value “say” and service by clergy and laity in our structures. What a mark it would be if Archbishop Welby invited lay leaders (how that is for each Province) to this meeting or to a future meeting. Rector Albany, NY Comments are closed. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Hopkinsville, KY September 17, 2015 at 2:57 am This is Welby creating a needless crisis, in response to the failure of the proposed “Anglican Covenant” in the United States, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, Scotland and his own Church of England. He wants to create its two-tier membership structure anyway, and endorse the anti-Gay schismatics who left The Episcopal Church. I hope we are not surprised by this, because he’s spoken favorably of ACNA before and appointed schismatics to official boards, while publicly “wondering” whether TEC will “survive.” This latest ploy – as if primates get to decide our future – is an act of aggression never before seen in Anglican history.We should announce beforehand that if the meeting goes on and the two-tier structure is approved, Episcopalians will most likely opt for second-class membership. (It will be up to General Convention to decide.) Then we should sic Michael Curry on Justin Welby and all of Gafcon, because Michael can preach the full wrath of God about their attempts to marginalize unpopular minorities. I suggest Michael use this as his text: Leviticus 16:8, on Israel’s scapegoat on the Day of Atonement. For what is clear is that the Primates of Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda, in league with their corrupt governments and military establishments, are using LGBTs as a distraction; “Kill the Gays” generates the headlines, but “Steal the Oil Money” is the politicians’ real agenda. And no one knows that better than former oilman Mr. Welby.This meeting will be no time for Episcopalians’ usual milquetoast diplomacy, sweet talk and indaba listening. It will be about power: who’s got it, who wants it and who will be its victims. The day that Justin Welby endorses ACNA, not only may we lose every pending ACNA lawsuit, LGBTs will be burned alive in an Anglo-African frenzy of homophobic bloodlust. Episcopalians won’t want any part of that. Even second-class membership in such a “Communion” would shame us for generations and cause more of our churches to close. Second-class membership should be our opening gambit. If it fails we must declare our independence from England once and for all. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that; the Primates don’t get to decide, Welby doesn’t get to decide, and this meeting is entirely unnecessary. Just because Welby’s intent on starting a conflagration doesn’t mean we have to hand him a gas can. Selena Smith says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MIlast_img read more

Photo: Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Washington National Cathedral on Dec. 15 tolled its bell 300 times, once for every 1,000 people who have died from COVID-19 in the United States, as another grim milestone in the pandemic coincided this week with the promise of hope offered by a vaccine.American deaths have now topped 300,000, and over 16 million cases have been reported in the United States. Worldwide cases have passed 71 million, including 1.6 million deaths, according to the World Health Organization.“The climbing death toll from this pandemic seems disturbingly routine. How awful that is,” National Cathedral Dean Randy Hollerith said in a written statement.“The Christian faith teaches that each person is a beloved child of God, and that my well-being is deeply connected to your well-being. We are not lone individuals free from responsibility; rather, we are dependent upon one another for our very lives and commanded to love our neighbors as ourselves.”The cathedral, located in the nation’s capital, tolls its 12-ton bell for every funeral held there, and it tolled the bell 200 times on Sept. 20 after COVID-19 deaths in the United States reached 200,000.The first shipments of a vaccine developed by Pfizer were distributed nationwide early this week, with front-line health care workers receiving some of the first vaccinations. Another vaccine developed by Moderna is expected to receive federal emergency authorization this week. The initial round of vaccinations has been cheered around the country, though it still could be months before doses are distributed widely enough to establish herd immunity and curb the virus.In the meantime, public health experts are warning that winter could bring another alarming rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths. They have urged Americans to limit travel and personal contact, including around the holidays, while continuing to wear masks and keep a safe distance from others when venturing out in public. Some dioceses, meanwhile, have suspended in-person worship through Advent and Christmas.“There are simple things we can do … to show our mutual respect and concern for one another,” Hollerith said. “Yes, we are tired from the confines and struggles of this pandemic, and yes, it’s been a long nine months. But now, more than ever, we have to protect each other because there has been far too much death. A vaccine is coming and we will get through these difficult days, but we will only succeed if we do it together.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Cartoonist kidnapped two months ago still missing

first_imgNews Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial January 13, 2021 Find out more Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge Reporters Without Borders appeals to President Mahinda Rajapaksa to order the release of the results of the police investigation into leading cartoonist and political reporter Prageeth Eknaligoda’s disappearance two months ago. The police have shown no interest in finding this opposition journalist alive, while government ministers have made contradictory statements that have spread confusion about the circumstances of his disappearance.“With some senior officials such as defence minister Gotabhaya Rajpaksa still suggesting that Eknaligoda staged his own disappearance, we urge the president to provide credible information about happened to him,” Reporters Without Borders said. Eknaligoda’s wife and two children have had no news of him since 24 January, when he was abducted as he left the office of the Lanka-e-News website, his place of work. The police have provided no convincing information about the case. In an interview for the Colombo-based Daily Mirror at the end of February, defence minister Rajpaksa (who is the president’s brother) said: “Eknaligoda had himself disappeared (…) We don’t even know who this Eknaligoda is, what had he done? Anyone can claim that he is missing.”A few days after Eknaligoda’s abduction, his wife was assured by a presidential adviser that he would “resurface.” But two months have since gone by and Eknaligoda, a diabetic since the age of 15, is still missing.Reporters Without Borders also urges President Rajapaksa to guarantee the safety of journalists during the campaign for the legislative elections scheduled for 8 April.The latest act of violence against the news media occurred yesterday when supporters of a government official, some of them armed, attacked the headquarters of privately-owned television station MTV/MBC on Colombo’s Braybrooke Place, throwing stones and trying to ransack it. The station was previously attacked by gunmen in January 2009.An MTV representative said: “The motive is not immediately clear to us, but we think this attack was political, above all because of next month’s parliamentary elections.” It may also have been linked to R&B singer Akon’s forthcoming visit to Colombo, which MTV is sponsoring, as local Buddhist groups took offence at an Akon video that showed skimpily dressed women dancing with a Buddha statue in the background. The police arrested 16 people during the attack but all were released on bail today.The most recent arrest of an opposition journalist was that of Ruwan Weerakoon in Colombo on 15 March, a few days after he was hospitalised as a result of heart attack (http://www.rsf.org/Anti-terrorist-police-arrest.html). “I under arrest in hospital,” he managed to say in SMS message.Dozens of state media employees have meanwhile been fired, suspended or threatened for protesting against the government’s control of coverage during the campaign for last January’s presidential election. Monitoring by Reporters Without Borders established that 96.7 per cent of the news programme air-time on the two main state TV stations favoured the president (http://www.rsf.org/All-out-propaganda-and.html).

We are more determined than ever to secure Assange’s release and stop his extradition.” said RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire.While the origin and precise motive of the attack are unknown, RSF understands that the spambot combined fake derogatory names with real email addresses in a concerted effort to distort campaigns and undermine the legitimacy of public calls for press freedom worldwide. RSF took immediate action to rectify the situation and is working to secure the petition tool. The RSF website and database of verified signatories to all global petitions were not breached in any way, and remain completely secure. No data collected in support of these campaigns has been compromised.Although a large number of false signatures have now been removed from the #FreeAssange petition, 82,000 are real and were verified prior to the spambot attack, in addition to nearly 7,000 signatures on the German version of the petition.“Now we need your help to replace the false signatures with even more real ones – and we will ensure that the UK authorities cannot ignore tens of thousands of voices. Please keep signing and sharing the #FreeAssange petition!” said RSF Director of International Campaigns Rebecca Vincent.The spambot attack took place in the middle of Assange’s US extradition hearing, which is expected to continue through 2 October at the Central Criminal Court in London. Despite severe restrictions on observers, RSF has been the only NGO to gain access to the public gallery most days, and will continue to closely monitor proceedings.At the start of the resumption of the hearing on 7 September, along with Assange’s partner Stella Moris, RSF attempted to deliver the first 80,000 signatures to 10 Downing Street, which refused to accept the petition. Instead, RSF representatives took a huge banner with the 80,000 names to a protest outside the court. RSF will again attempt to deliver the petition to Prime Minister Boris Johnson on conclusion of the extradition proceedings.last_img read more
