EU budget: Commission proposes a new fund to invest in the maritime economy and support fishing communities

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 giugno 2018

The new European Maritime and Fisheries Fund will continue to support the European fisheries sector towards more sustainable fishing practices, with a particular focus on supporting small-scale fishermen. It will also help unleash the growth potential of a sustainable blue economy towards a more prosperous future for coastal communities. For the first time, it will contribute to strengthening international ocean governance for safer, cleaner, more secure, and sustainably managed seas and oceans. Finally, the Commission is reinforcing the environmental impact of the Fund with a focus on protecting marine ecosystems and an expected contribution of 30% of its budget to climate change mitigation and adaptation, in line with the commitments agreed under the Paris Agreement.Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, said: “Healthy, well-managed oceans are a pre-condition for long-term investments and job creation in fisheries and the broader blue economy. As a global ocean actor and the world’s fifth largest producer of seafood, the European Union has a strong responsibility to protect, conserve and sustainably use the oceans and their resources. The Fund will allow Member States and the Commission to live up to that responsibility and invest into sustainable fisheries, food security, a thriving maritime economy, and healthy and productive seas and oceans.”Fisheries are vital to the livelihood and cultural heritage of many coastal communities in the EU. Together with aquaculture, they also contribute to food security and nutrition. A particular focus of the Fund will be to support small-scale coastal fishermen, with vessels below 12 metres, which represent half of European employment in the fishing sector. Since the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy in 2014, progress has been made in bringing fish stocks back to healthy levels, in increasing the profitability of the EU’s fishing industry, and in conserving marine ecosystems. The new Fund will continue to support these socio-economic and environmental objectives.As regards the maritime economy, the Commission proposes to strengthen its support compared to the 2014-2020 period. This is a high-potential economic sector whose worldwide output is estimated at €1.3 trillion today and could more than double by 2030. The maritime fund will enable investment in new maritime markets, technologies and services such as ocean energy and marine biotechnology. Coastal communities will receive more and broader support to set up local partnerships and technology transfers in all blue economy sectors, including aquaculture and coastal tourism.In the context of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Union has also committed at international level to make seas and oceans safer, more secure, cleaner and more sustainably managed. The new European Maritime and Fisheries Fund will support these commitments for better international ocean governance. It will, among others, also provide the necessary funding to improve maritime surveillance, security and coastguard cooperation.

Best’s Market Segment Outlook: Italian Non-Life Sector is Stable

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 aprile 2018

A.M. Best has a stable outlook on the Italian non-life insurance market. The sector has a good record of technical profitability, which is expected to be maintained in the medium term. A.M. Best estimates that over the period 2012 to 2016 inclusive, its net combined ratio averaged 94%, which compares favourably with that of other European countries. Strong competition is putting pressure on rates for motor business, which represents about half of the market’s total premium income, but increased use of telematics is supporting better claims experience and reducing fraud. Prospective performance is anticipated to benefit from insurers’ increased focus on profitable lines of business outside the motor market, which should contribute to maintain the sector’s combined ratio at approximately 95%. A new Best’s Briefing, “Market Segment Outlook: Italy Non-Life” states that whilst the credit fundamentals of Italian non-life insurers appear solid, the market continues to face economic and political headwinds. The banking sector’s exposure to non-performing loans, which destabilised Italy’s financial sector in 2016, sharply decreased in 2017, but remains at an elevated level. In addition, political instability persists. As widely anticipated, general elections held on 4 March 2018 resulted in a hung parliament, with the consequence that the future government is expected to rely on a coalition of different political forces. This is unlikely to provide the political stability and leverage needed to implement the structural reforms hoped for by investors and local businesses.

CREDI indicates an improving credit market

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 11 aprile 2018

In the April issue of the Catella Real Estate Debt Indicator (CREDI), the Main index increases from 50.3 to 50.5, which is the second consecutive quarter where the Main index is above 50.0.
“In this year’s first CREDI survey, the credit market continues to improve as the Main index increases from 50.3 to 50.5. This is the second consecutive quarter where the CREDI survey indicates an improving credit market, which has not happened since the autumn of 2015. Reduced credit margins and increased access to credit are important reasons for the improved credit climate,” says Martin Malhotra, Project Manager at Catella.“We are seeing a strong interest in centrally located office properties in large cities, especially in Stockholm, while it is becoming increasingly difficult to sell properties in secondary locations. We are expecting to see an increased yield gap between properties in A, B and C locations,” says Arvid Lindqvist, Head of Research at Catella.“Furthermore, we are seeing a continued interest in bonds among property companies. In 2017, property companies listed on Nasdaq Stockholm Main Market increased their volume of bonds by 80 per cent, from SEK 51 billion to SEK 91 billion. In the spring of 2018, we also had the first new issue of property-related preference shares on Nasdaq Stockholm Main Market since May 2016, as NP3 issued preference shares of approximately SEK 288 million,” Martin Malhotra concludes.The twenty-second edition of the Catella Real Estate Debt Indicator (CREDI) is attached and can also be downloaded from catella.com/en/news-and-pressreleases/research. CREDI consists of two parts: one is an index based on a survey of listed property companies and active banks, and the other a set of indices based on publicly available data. CREDI also includes an analysis of preference shares and an overview of the property market.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 gennaio 2018

Sydney, perla australianaSydney. This study explores and analyses 18 technologically innovative companies founded or headquartered in Australia for their technological disruption for the year 2017. These companies operate in a range of industries such as automotive car sharing, fintech, business intelligence and analytics, logistics, customer experience testing, and project management. They share key commonalities of serving as innovative, digital disruptors in their respective markets – changing traditional business models and finding new means through which to generate and deliver value to end users. Companies need to be able to generate continuous value for their customers through on-going research and development (R&D) and innovation. Differentiation is key for retaining a competitive advantage in the market, as the threat from competitors within digital industries remains significant, with typically lower barriers of entry than brick-and-mortar enterprises. There have been unique innovations in capabilities such as Big Data analytics, allowing companies to gain detailed insights into customer behaviours and operational effectiveness, paving way for large-scale market disruption.For Australian start-ups, international expansion and branding are essential to strengthen their reputation for differentiation and gaining a distinct first-mover advantage. Successful business models in Australia should be scaled across overseas markets to minimise the risk of emerging competitor digital platforms securing early market share. Innovative technology applications and industrial capabilities such as Big Data analytics, cloud technology, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are likely to be important in a start-up’s long-term strategy as main or peripheral features.

Best’s Special Report: China’s Reinsurers Operating in an Increasingly Difficult Market

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 dicembre 2017

pechinoPechino, China is increasingly becoming a difficult environment for non-life reinsurers, as competition and the regulatory environment are adding to top-line and profitability pressures. The Chinese life reinsurance market, meanwhile, has doubled its premium size since 2012 but must deal with heightened capital pressure, according to a new A.M. Best special report.The Best’s Special Report, titled, “Reinsurance in China: Underwriting Challenges for Non-Life, Capital Pressure for Life,” states that many of the issues challenging non-life reinsurers have resulted from the implementation of the China Risk-Oriented Solvency System (C-ROSS). A glut of reinsurance capacity and growing retention by the direct industry pose clear threats to reinsurers’ profitability. In addition, the oligopolistic structure of the direct market gives large cedents more bargaining power not only on pricing, but also on terms and conditions, which has squeezed profit margins even further. For growth, non-life reinsurers are looking at Belt and Road initiatives and captive insurers, as well as potential business arising from the second phase of C-ROSS.According to the report, life and non-life reinsurers also need to be wary of potential competition from Hong Kong, as regulators there are working on a C-ROSS equivalence, which may allow Hong Kong reinsurers to be treated as onshore reinsurers in China. Although several years off, changes could attract new capital to the Hong Kong market as companies look to enter China’s reinsurance market.
Regulations and government policies will continue to play a large role in steering the direction of China’s reinsurance industry’s development, while also indirectly impacting reinsurance demand. As the market prepares for the second phase of C-ROSS, one task will be to further optimize the solvency regime and recalibrate insurance risk charges for health, motor and credit lines, which may further reshape the non-life reinsurance environment. On the life side, the market has entered a new stage of transformation. Whether financial reinsurance’s strong historical growth will continue is dependent on potential regulatory decisions and an increasingly competitive market environment. As regulators push the industry to refocus on protection and serve the real economy, protection reinsurance will grow, fueled by rapid growth in the direct market.A.M. Best believes that a talent shortage at a growing number of reinsurers and the need for a commensurate increase in salaries, even as profit margins decline, have contributed to the difficult operating environment for China’s reinsurers. However, the increased demand for talent is attracting non-state-owned or non-reinsurance background personnel to the industry, which could help make these traditionally conservative companies more commercialized and competitive.

The “Mobile Workforce Apps in North America” report has been added to Research and Markets’ offering

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 dicembre 2017

This study examines the North American SMB (small and mid-sized business) and VSB (very small business) markets for mobile workforce applications. It also discusses optimal strategies for addressing the unique needs of these two segments. Mobile workforce applications are software solutions that allow remote and mobile employees real-time access to — and exchange of — information, collaboration, and/or guidance via their smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices (including, increasingly, wearables such as smart watches). Key market trends, the competitive landscape, and potential growth opportunities are defined and discussed.In North America, mobile workforce app providers can make the mistake of treating small and mid-sized businesses as one monolithic entity. In fact, sharp differences exist between the very small business sector, which is usually defined as under 25 employees (and also known as a micro-business), and the 25-499 employee SMB segment. Recognizing both the differences and similarities in concerns, priorities, expertise levels, etc. helps leaders in the mobile workforce app sector sell more effectively and profitably to both audiences. Numerous growth opportunities exist for providers that wish to take a leadership role and attract more attention from very small, small, and mid-market businesses. These include enriching the app portfolio in new ways, focusing on customers’ revenue generation needs, and not abandoning the customer once the sale is made.

Cell Line Characterization Services Market, 2027 – Research and Markets

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 29 novembre 2017

The ‘Cell Line Characterization Services Market, 2017-2027’ report features a comprehensive view on the current market landscape and future outlook of testing and/or authentication services for the characterization of cell lines. The report provides information on organizations that offer contract services for the characterization of cell lines.Cross contamination and cell line misidentification are some of the major concerns associated with the use of cell lines. According to published literature, cell lines used for scientific experiments are either misidentified or contaminated in approximately 15-25% cases. The use of such cell lines yields unreliable and irreproducible results, and leads to significant delays in research time lines and financial losses. The detrimental impact of using incorrect/misidentified cell lines poses a significant burden on the global healthcare budget.It has been estimated that a net loss of USD 28 billion is incurred every year on research that cannot be replicated due to the involvement of misidentified or contaminated cell lines in the US. Therefore, it is crucial to properly identify and authenticate cell lines used for research, both at the start of a project, as well as during the course of the study. To carry out cell line characterization, factors such as source of cell lines, their development history and the biological properties of cells determine the analytical tests required for characterization.It is also worth highlighting that several regulatory authorities and scientific communities have undertaken different initiatives to spread awareness on the importance of cell line characterization. Various rules and standards have also been formulated, making it mandatory to characterize cell lines while submitting applications for marketing authorization, for receipt of grants/funds, or for publishing cell-based research in leading journals.

Jackson Enters Private Wealth and Trust Market

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 2 novembre 2017

borsaJackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®)  announced the formation of its Private Wealth & Trust group, a specialized team focused on complex planning, investment management and tax mitigation strategies for high-net-worth and ultra high-net-worth families. This dedicated group works with private banks and trust firms as well as families’ trusted tax and legal advisors on long-term, tax-efficient planning and wealth transfer opportunities.“Since trust and private wealth firms operate on a fee-only business model, many of these entities haven’t traditionally utilized annuities in their practices,” said Justin Fitzpatrick, head of Private Wealth & Trust at Jackson National Life Distributors LLC (JNLD). “However, we’re hoping to change that. We believe fiduciaries should have access to the tax deferral and income control provided by variable annuities in a commission-free form that fits their business. We’re looking forward to building relationships with the firms in this space.”In creating this product, Jackson sought input from trust and investment management firms and created Private Wealth Shield, an investment-only, tax-deferred variable annuity developed specifically for trusts and private banks. This new annuity is institutionally priced and available as a fee-based offering without commissions or surrender charges.By leveraging the tax-deferred nature of variable annuities and the investment-only feature of Private Wealth Shield, portfolio managers and trust officers can help high-net-worth and ultra high-net-worth individuals and families access tax-sheltered investments, lessen tax burdens and enhance flexible portfolio construction for long-term growth over multiple generations in agency and trust accounts. For irrevocable trusts, Private Wealth Shield provides greater income and tax control and removes the need for tax-related distributions, keeping more assets in the trust for improved growth potential.“Private trustees have long relied on tax-deferred annuities, but Private Wealth Shield’s investment-only platform offers trust and private wealth firms a more powerful solution for mitigating taxes on nonqualified assets, particularly within the high-net-worth market,” said John Poulsen, executive vice president of sales strategy at JNLD. “As financial institutions and professionals navigate complicated fiduciary rules that can lead to difficult investment and tax management decisions, Private Wealth Shield presents a viable strategy that can help alleviate these challenges to meet the needs of their clients.”Jackson is committed to providing education, service support and digital tools to increase the ease of doing business through a new product offering.
