Shareholder adviser supports Laxey over Alliance Trust

first_img Share alison.lock Shareholder adviser supports Laxey over Alliance Trust Activist investor Laxey Partners’ calls for change at Alliance Trust gained fresh backing today after it published a new report attacking the trust’s underperforming share price.Shareholder advice agency the UK Individual Shareholder Society has recommended its members support Laxey’s stance and vote for two of Laxey’s resolutions against Alliance Trust at the upcoming 20 May annual general meeting.ShareSoc said it believed Alliance Trust’s persistent gap between its share price and net asset value, a discount currently resting between 15 and 20 per cent, was not in shareholders’ interests.It said that in the absence of a plan to tackle the discount from the trust, Laxey’s proposal to impose a formal discount control mechanism that would use share buybacks to boost the share price was “a reasonable approach”. “The original letter to the board in November 2010 by Laxey Partners quite rightly raised a number of questions that required tackling,” said ShareSoc chairman Roger Lawson. “The response from the board seems to have been that they feel that no change was required, and they have not apparently entered into a meaningful dialogue. This is not a reasonable way for boards to respond to the concerns of any shareholders, whether short or long term holders.”Laxey has also published an independent analysis of the reasons for the discount.It earlier criticised the level of expenses incurred by the trust, arguing that subsidising loss-making subsidiaries had pushed its total expense ratio far higher than peers – and that the board was avoiding a prolonged share buyback process to disguise the soaring expenses. Today’s report, produced by fund research firm Fund Consultants LLC, concluded that the share price discount was a product of over-supply of shares and that improving the trust’s performance alone would not reduce it.“We believe the increased supply of Alliance shares was a significant factor in the widening discount,”The report said the discount had existed for years and had been exacerbated by the issue of 167.9m new shares when Alliance merged its mortgage and savings companies in 2006 – but said share buybacks could and would directly improve the discount in both the long and short term.The report also concluded that the total expense ratio had been significantly understated and had increased dramatically since the merger. “Rather than being one of the least expensively run funds, Alliance is actually one the most expensive,” it said.

Steve Hansen talks down All Blacks’ century chances

first_img Steve Hansen and Colin Slade speak to the press ahead of New Zealand v Namibia New Zealand coach Steve Hansen doesn’t believe his side will send the scoreboard to three figures when his side meets Namibia on Thursday He added about Thursday’s opponents: “We can’t assume Namibia are going to lie down because they won’t. They’ll be proud men and they’ll come out and give it everything they’ve got and they’ll ask questions of us for sure.”Hansen has made a raft of changes for his side’s second game of the tournament, with captain Richie McCaw rested on the bench; replaced in position and captaincy by Sam Cane.A changed side is by no means a weakened side, with the bench in particular boasting some big names. Kevin Mealamu, Tony Woodcock, Kieran Read, Ma’a Nonu and McCaw have 557 caps between them and will all be available to come on from the pine. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img We haven’t seen a 100-point team at a World Cup since New Zealand put 108 on Portugal in 2007, but Steve Hansen doesn’t expect the All Blacks to reach three figures in this tournament.The reigning World Cup champions have their best chance of a century when they face lowly Namibia at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday evening.Even though New Zealand have recorded three of the five 100-point scores in World Cup history, Hansen believes the game has moved on in recent years to close the gap between the big nations and the minnows.“The game’s changed a heck of a lot since 1995. World Rugby’s spent a lot of time, energy and money trying to help the so-called minnows of the game to improve and I think by and large they’ve been successful in doing that,” he said, quoted on Rugby365.“It’s taken a long time but it’s happening, so I don’t think things like that are as up for grabs like they used to be. If someone’s going out thinking he’s going to get records, I’d say he’s in the wrong mental state in today’s game.”>>> Five things you might not know about Rugby World Cup minnows Namibia New Zealand: Colin Slade; Nehe Milner-Skudder, Malakai Fekitoa, Sonny Bill Williams, Julian Savea; Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara; Ben Franks, Codie Taylor, Charlie Faumuina, Luke Romano, Sam Whitelock, Liam Messam, Sam Cane (capt), Victor Vito. Replacements: Kevin Mealamu, Wyatt Crockett, Tony Woodcock, Kieran Read, Richie McCaw, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Ma’a Nonu, Ben Smith.last_img read more

Anglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects

first_img “COPY” Manufacturers: Oxley NetsText description provided by the architects. For Andrew Maynard Architects’ latest design, a holiday home in Anglesea VIC, the clients’ requirement was simple: more space for their growing and aging family. With the need of the client always in mind, Andrew Maynard Architects set out to create a multi-generational vacation home whose “versatility…allows it to be inhabited simultaneously by all members of the extended family…The design is rigorously addressed at different scales, allowing there to be a certain level of connection and interaction throughout while also providing smaller zones where solace can be found.”Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe design response to the home was a series of “finely-crafted multi-functional timber boxes” nestled around the existing house.  The design allows the users to take advantage of the surroundings by having the form open to the outdoors.  This set up allows extensive physical and visual interaction between the two environments.Save this picture!”Throughout the day, the timber allows the additions to have an appearance that is harmonious with its surroundings, whilst at night the internal lights amplify the bold colour scheme, giving the structure an almost synthetic and rendered image,” explained the architects.Save this picture!A new trafficable roof extends the top floor living spaces out into the treetops in an attempt to connect the house with the site.  Below the roof, the wood continues downward to create a deck for the first level.  Parts of the structure are carved out creating  “a multi-dimensioned element” that provides shelter as well as habitable areas for the children to play. Save this picture!A “Northern box addition” allows winter sun to penetrate deep within the home’s interior, warming the concrete slab provided for thermal mass.  Bright color finishes at the ground level enliven the interior to create a “playful, leisurely and carefree characteristic that such a house should embody.”Save this picture!Elements strive to perform a variety of functions as a bed serves as a recreational seat, a play platform for children, an access point out to the trampoline, a storage space & (when the large black curtain is extended dividing the area) a private bed.  “This multiplicity in function, allows the spaces to have increased versatility, and allows the plan to respond to many different demands simultaneously reducing the overall footprint of the design.”Save this picture!All images courtesy of the studio.  For the complete set of images visit Andrew Maynard Architects’ official site for the project.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessVaeksthuset Botanical Garden / CebraArticlesPolish Pavilion / WWA ArchitectsArticles Share ArchDaily Australia Anglesea House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAnglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects Anglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/27468/anglesea-house-andrew-maynard-architects Clipboard Save this picture!+ 24 Share Projects “COPY” Architects: Austin Maynard Architects Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodRefurbishmentHousesAnglesea3D ModellingAustraliaPublished on July 02, 2009Cite: “Anglesea House / Austin Maynard Architects” 02 Jul 2009.

Charlotte Harris joins Justgiving in the newly created role of Head of Client Services

first_imgFor four years, Charlotte was Commercial Director at Whitewater, where she managed the start-up and ongoing strategic direction of their specialist tribute giving division, Our Lasting Tribute.In that post, she worked with over 50 charities in the UK and another 20 in North America and Australia. Since leaving Whitewater, she’s worked for three years as a consultant with charities and third-party suppliers to the third sector.Most recently, she carried out a large piece of quantitative and qualitative research for Justgiving on a consultancy basis to help the company understand the issues facing charities and how Justgiving can better serve them.“I’ve worked with Justgiving in lots of different ways over the past seven years – as a charity client, as a partner supplier and more recently as a consultant – so the opportunity to take on a more formal role was too tempting to miss,” said Charlotte of her appointment.“A strong theme in the charity research I did for Justgiving recently was that it’s seen as a brand of integrity and an expert in the field – which is backed up by the fact that almost 7 million donors trust Justgiving. That confidence in the product and the social enterprise values of the company were really attractive to me.“There are of course a number of things on the immediate to-do list, but one thing that’s high up there is sharing our expertise more effectively. For example, Justgiving has arguably the single biggest repository of donor transactional information in the UK. I want to find a way to translate that data into useful intelligence to help our charities ramp up their online fundraising.”Anne-Marie Huby, Justgiving’s Managing Director, commented, “Charlotte combines deep experience of charity fundraising in both the UK and the US with real passion and enthusiasm for the digital world. As a technology focused company, we are really excited about her bringing that rich experience to Justgiving. It is a crucial time for us, as we embark on a complete overhaul of our platform, and Charlotte will play a key role in making the new generation of our service the best of its kind for charities.”More information can be found on Justgiving’s blog: http://justgiving.wordpress.com/2008/11/25/new-head-of-client-services-charlotte-harris/Editor’s notes:• In seven years, over 6.3 million people have helped raised more than £350 million for 5,800 charities using Justgiving’s award-winning site http://www.justgiving.com• Justgiving is trusted by donors to safely, efficiently and transparently raise money for the causes they’re passionate about• It is also the no-risk, easy way for charities to make the most of online fundraising• One-to-one help is available to every charity and every donor• Justgiving believes in giving all charities the same opportunity to raise huge amounts of money, including the smaller ones who can’t afford to spend lots of money on technology, freeing them up to concentrate on what’s important – whether it’s medical research or running the local playgroup.• Justgiving operate on a social enterprise basis.

The transmission of the adverts is free for both the sender and receiver of the advert.The Ad-po can send a variety of messages to mobile phones, ranging from animated images, to videos and redeemable coupons.Ewan Hastings of Positive Fundraising believes there is a wide range of uses for Ad-pods, which weigh just 70g. These include:* distributing a campaign message at a fundraising event, festival, fete or show* asking for donations of clothes as people pass your charity shop* promoting an appeal or ask for volunteers as people pass your charity’s officeThe Ad-pod is particularly well suited to outdoor advertising since it can be carried by volunteers who can walk round an event or venue spreading the message further.Crimestoppers used Ad-pods in 2010 at events such as the UK Superbikes Championship at Mallory Park Race Circuit and Formula 1 at Silverstone. Volunteers walked around the events with a portable Ad-pod distributing Crime Awareness campaigns to the crowds. According to Crimestoppers and the event organisers, “the result was a significant drop in crime at these events”.Hastings, a fundraiser with over 18 years fundraising experience, said: “I see the real potential in it for charities as its uses to fundraising and campaigning work are limitless.”He said that this method of proximity marketing was not spam advertising “as using Bluetooth is an opt-in, permission based, way of advertising. A charity proximity marketing advert requires the customer to agree to receive it.”He suggests that the initial cost of the device could be covered in a funding application to a grantmaker keen to support new technology or by charging local businesses to use it to target their advertising.www.charityproximitymarketing.com Ad-pods offer to send charity messages to mobiles through proximity marketing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
