Pay at Brevan Howard soars

first_img Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL PARTNERS at Brevan Howard Asset Management, the largest hedge fund in Europe, shared a bumper payout of £86.1m at the height of the financial crisis, accounts revealed yesterday.Around 45 members of the trading firm – including founders Alan Howard and James Vernon, and corporate investors such as Swiss Re – shared the bonus pot despite the meltdown in equity markets in the eight months to March 2009. The pool was larger than the £66.4m distributed in 2007, although year-on-year comparison is not precise due to accounting changes.Operating expenses for the period, including salaries, came to £605.8m.Brevan Howard earned £700m in fees as its flagship Master fund sidestepped earth-shaking events such as the collapse of Lehman Brothers.The Master fund generated a return of 21 per cent in 2008 after cutting its leverage by 80 per cent and moving heavily into cash. Howard, a former Salomon Brothers trader, is said to be fixated with “black swans” – unpredictable events that can send markets into turmoil – and directed his fund managers to sell off risky equity exposure in the run-up to the credit crunch.Brevan Howard’s assets under management stand at $31.8bn (£20.6bn).

Should I buy or avoid Boohoo shares?

first_imgShould I buy or avoid Boohoo shares? Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended ASOS and boohoo group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Rupert Hargreaves | Friday, 29th January, 2021 | More on: BOO Boohoo (LSE: BOO) shares have been among the best-performing investments to own on the London market over the past five years.Since the beginning of 2016, the stock has jumped a staggering 660%. Over the same time frame, the FTSE All-Share returned just 16%, excluding dividends. 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…However, over the past year, when the firm should have been reaping the benefits of the pandemic, which has forced people away from brick-and-mortar shops to online, Boohoo has struggled. Concerns about labour abuses in its supply chain and corporate governance issues have weighed on the shares. The stock has returned just 10% since the beginning of 2020. By comparison, shares in peer Asos have gained 57%. This underperformance suggests to me Boohoo shares could offer value. As such, I’ve decided to take a closer look at the business to establish if it’s worth adding to my portfolio. Should I buy Boohoo shares? Despite the issues the company has had to deal with over the past 12 months, Boohoo’s underlying business has thrived. The company’s latest trading update, which detailed sales growth for the 10 months to the end of December, announced overall revenue growth of 42% year-on-year. Total group revenue amounted to nearly £1.5bn, up from just over £1bn for the same period last year. And it doesn’t look as if the firm is taking this growth for granted. It’s been on an acquisition spree with cash flowing into the group’s coffers. Boohoo has been snapping up other brands that have been unable to survive in the pandemic. In its latest deals, the firm has paid £55m for the online business of Debenhams, and management is looking at making an offer for some of failed fashion group Arcadia’s brands. I think these efforts will help support the group’s growth. They may also provide firepower for further deals. By leveraging its infrastructure and experience in e-commerce, I think these bargain-basement deals could yield substantial returns for Boohoo and its investors. Multiple threatsStill, despite the opportunities the company has, Boohoo shares face multiple threats as well. As mentioned above, last year it was reprimanded for its labour practices in the UK. This isn’t the first time the business has come under pressure for this reason, which concerns me. Management is taking action on this front though, and changes are in the works. I’m also incredibly aware that the retail industry is viciously competitive. Just because Boohoo has made a success of it during the past five years, does not mean it will continue to do so. After all, Arcadia was one of the most important retail groups globally at one point. Now it’s bankrupt. Another risk I see here is the price of Boohoo shares. At current levels, the stock is trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 41. I think that’s about right considering the firm’s rapid growth rate. However, this valuation doesn’t leave much room for error. If growth stutters, the market may quickly re-think its opinion of the business. Therefore, while I think Boohoo shares could have a bright outlook, I don’t think the shares are without risks. Both the pros and cons of owning this business need to be considered. On that basis, I’m not comfortable buying the stock at its current valuation and would rather wait for a pullback before buying into the growth story.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Advent and Christmas resources from Episcopal Relief & Development

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Posted Dec 3, 2012 Associate Rector Columbus, GA [Episcopal Relief & Development] This Advent, Episcopal Relief & Development offers a variety of ways to mark the season of anticipation and celebrate the birth of Christ, who heals our hurting world.“Advent is a season to strive toward the coming of Christ, and to further God’s kingdom on earth,” said Rob Radtke, the organization’s President.  “When we take action to seek and serve Christ in others – in our family, our hometown or halfway around the world – we are preparing the way of the Lord.  I hope that Episcopal Relief & Development’s friends and supporters will be inspired to take advantage of the opportunities in their lives to engage joyfully with the spirit of Advent this year.”Episcopal Relief & Development’s 2012 Advent Calendar features reflections, prayers and gift ideas inspired by the organization’s Gifts for Life catalog.  Special “Gifts for Kids” suggestions like nutritious food, quality education and essential health care can help children learn about stewardship, generosity and global needs and concerns.  The online calendar and a downloadable PDF can be found at“We invite congregations and individuals alike to walk with us this Advent,” said Judy Sawler, Episcopal Relief & Development’s Manager for Direct Response Marketing. “This year’s Advent calendar calls us to reflect on what we can do to share God’s love with others, and particularly with people in need worldwide.  Our Gifts for Life program is a great way for people to engage with our mission that’s fun and spreads holiday warmth to friends and family.”Gifts for Life are available year-round, but Christmas is the perfect time to give a gift with lasting impact.  New to the catalog this year are rainwater harvesting systems, memberships in women’s literacy groups and vocational training for young and disabled people.  Popular items include goats and chickens, which provide families with a source of milk or eggs, enriching the household diet and helping to generate income.  High-impact gifts like communal wells and vegetable gardens can improve health and wellbeing for an entire community.  And “green gifts” like energy efficient cook stoves and trees for reforestation promote sustainable solutions that protect and nurture the environment.Purchasing Gifts for Life is easy and secure – via mail, over the phone or through the online catalog at  Printed copies of the catalog can be ordered through Episcopal Marketplace.  Children will love the colorful photographs and engaging stories of how each item makes a difference, making Gifts for Life a wonderful family or Sunday School project.  Gift givers can choose a printed card or a customizable e-card to send to the person in whose honor the purchase was made.For further enrichment, Episcopal Relief & Development has published a set of six Children’s Chapel liturgies that provide an opportunity for children to give thanks for essential gifts of Light, Water, Seeds, Soil, Animals and New Life.  These modules can be used separately or as a series to help children think about basic needs and what they can do to help families move from poverty to prosperity.“Advent is a great time to reach out to kids because they get excited about the holidays,” said Pamela Penn, Program Officer for Church Engagement.  “The idea of gift giving is on a lot of people’s minds, and it’s easy to tie in lessons about generosity, thankfulness and thoughtfulness about what’s really important.”For those with a coffee drinker on their gift list, Episcopal Relief & Development is offering two Bishops Blend Christmas Boxes through its coffee partner, Pura Vida Create Good.  The Coffee Box includes smooth and rich Bishops Blend Regular Roast, extra-dark Kaldi’s Roast and Café de la Paz.  The Coffee and Chocolate Box delights with Bishops Blend Regular Roast, Bishops Blend Decaf and three bars of Single Origin Guatemalan chocolate.  The boxes are $29 each, and are shipped with a personalized message for the recipient.  A portion of Bishops Blend sales helps to sustain Episcopal Relief & Development’s work worldwide.  Visit to order or learn more.Episcopal Relief & Development is the international relief and development agency of the Episcopal Church and an independent 501(c)(3) organization. The agency takes its mandate from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25.  Its programs work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Episcopal Relief & Development works closely with the worldwide Church and ecumenical partners to help rebuild after disasters and to empower local communities to find lasting solutions that fight poverty, hunger and disease, including HIV/AIDS and malaria.

The project is a house located in Mexico City, in one of the first areas developed after the expansion of the city in 1950. The project was built on one of the few free lots that remain in the area, so the approach was to develop the project from scratch. The location of the lot is unique since it has a triple front, two to the street and one to a pedestrian walkway. This allowed generating facades to the outside although being a lot between party walls. Due to the pedestrian walkway, an area of three meters was left free, allowing the pedestrian walkway not to be cloistered.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!Floor Plan First FloorSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroSince the lot is of 160m2, seeking balance in the constructed volume by generating the largest amount of free area possible was prioritized. A rectangular prism aligned to a wall was chosen because of this, which allowed us to explore views, openings, cracks, extractions and additions. The exploration of the architecture, the routes and the spaces started from this geometric volume. The project was conceived as a single volume that will house all the spaces, but this volume, forceful in its form and its materiality on the outside, is free on the inside, welcoming, transparent and honest. For this, bare finishes were used where the materials expressed their beauty and harmony from their construction process, without treatments and without coatings.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!Floor Plan Second FloorSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe annealed clay wall was selected as the envelope in most of the walls with the reinforcement structure embedded in it, the bare concrete as an element of continuity that binds together the upper slab and stairs, the wooden ceiling that provides warmth, and the steel profiles in exposed reinforcements of the building and window frame as a link between the other materials.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroProject gallerySee allShow lessFranzen House / Robert Gurney ArchitectSelected ProjectsMost Beautiful House / Leo RomanoSelected Projects Share Mexico Houses CopyAbout this officeTARA | Taller de ArquitecturaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMexico CityOn FacebookMexicoPublished on January 25, 2021Cite: “Red House / TARA | Taller de Arquitectura” [Casa Roja / TARA | Taller de Arquitectura] 25 Jan 2021.

Rising participation in Cowtown ultramarathon leads more runners to challenge themselves

first_imgReddIt Russell Hodges Linkedin Previous articleFree condoms were given to TCU students Wednesday nightNext articleMarketing professor: a job doesn’t mean you stop learning Russell Hodges RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Fort Worth culinary scene: fusing the casual and the contemporary Twitter printWhat was meant  to be a one-time event commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Cowtown Marathon has become one of its most popular events.The 50-kilometer Ultra Marathon, presented by Miller Lite, the race’s official title according to the Cowtown website, is an annual race that runs approximately 31.1 miles. The race is nearly five miles longer than a regular marathon, and takes place on Feb. 26-Feb. 28.When the 38th Cowtown Marathon comes to Fort Worth, 58-year-old Nick Castillo will once again be participating in the organization’s newest, but increasingly popular event.“I’ve done the Ultra ever since they started [it],” Castillo said.The 50-kilometer Ultra Marathon runs approximately 31.1 miles, or  five miles longer than the marathon, both are set for Feb. 28.“It was successful and people wanted it back, so we’ve kept it,” said Executive Director Heidi Swartz.Since then, the race has become a fixture in the annual Cowtown festivities, including the Cook Children’s 5K, Adults 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon.Despite being the smallest of the Cowtown races, participation has increased every year since its inception, according to the Cowtown results database.“It’s the smallest race of the six, but it’s the fastest growing that we have,” Swartz said.With positive feedback coming from runners, and participation continuing to rise, this could mean ultramarathon running might be turning into a new trend for distance athletes.“Ultra racing has become more popular over the last several years. Runners are looking for a new goal, so the ultramarathon is the next goal after running a marathon,” Swartz said. “The trend across the United States is that more people are interested in participating in ultra distances.”Castillo, who has been running the Cowtown for about 20 years, said he believes there is a growing trend of ultramarathon racing.“If people say ‘Hey, I’ve done the half, let me do the marathon,’ and a lot of people are completing marathons now. They want to challenge themselves more, so the only way they can do that is to run the ultra,” Castillo said. “It’s getting big.”Castillo has been running about 50 miles a week since last summer to prepare for the event. Castillo said he believes more runners are signing up for ultramarathons in order to challenge themselves both mentally and physically to go beyond what they experienced from a previous race.“The ultra is more [challenging],” Castillo said. “Anybody can do three miles, walk and run. But doing about 31 miles, you’ve got to have a game plan and not go out too fast. You have to make sure you have something to finish with.”Castillo said he thinks the support runners receive during the race along with the joy and achievement of completing the race are more reasons runners are flocking to it.“It’s like you die and get reborn. You start looking at life different. You say ‘Hey, life is real short,’ I better enjoy it while I can and challenge myself mentally and physically as long as I can to; it’s mostly just rewarding yourself,” Castillo said. “People you don’t even know encourage you to finish.”Ginny Love, a 29-year-old from Nacogdoches who has been running for about seven years, is running the race for the first time with her mother, Lee Ann. Love said she decided to participate not only to challenge herself, but to challenge her mother as well.“I just wanted a bigger challenge, something new to try and do,” Love said. “I said ‘Mom, how strong are you?’ And she said, ‘Well I’m pretty strong.’ And I said ‘How mentally strong are you?’ And she said ‘I’m really mentally strong.’ And I said, ‘Alright, do you want to do an ultramarathon?’ And she goes, ‘Oh, that’s — that’s crazy strong.’”Love said she began her training for the race last summer: running about 30 miles a week. She said she’s currently dealing with a condition known as “runner’s knee” which is a common term runners use to describe pain underneath or around the kneecap. She said the pain is just one of the burdens of training for such a long race.“It’s a challenge,” Love said. “I might have to run 12 miles on a Monday, after I ran 20 miles on a Saturday. Physically, that’s a pretty big undertaking.”The challenge is one that Love is more than happy to accept.“I just want to see if I’m able to do it,” Love said. “It’s something I’ve never done before and I think I can do it and I want to prove to myself that I can.”When asked whether or not she thinks ultramarathon running has become the trend in distance racing, Love said she agrees because she believes both runners, and society as a whole, are beginning to take steps toward healthier lifestyles.“I think America in general is becoming more health-conscious,” Love said. “I think people are realizing that if they’re putting physical limitations on themselves, then that’s where they’re going to go; if they shoot for something bigger, they’re able to do it.” Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Local school auction fills the gap for improved learning environment Russell Hodges Russell Hodges Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Twitter ReddIt Linkedin Facebook + posts Pouring Glory: Self-made restaurateur revitalizing Fort Worth’s south side one craft beer at a time Russell Hodges Facebooklast_img read more

Radio station technician and host murdered in Kapisa Valley

first_img to go further News Organisation Reporters Without Borders is saddened to learn that the body of Mohammad Hassin Hashemi, a 30-year-old employee of local radio Nadjhrab in the northeastern Kapisa Valley, was found near his home yesterday, 18 days after he disappeared.Hashemi was apparently shot in the head the day after he went missing. His body also bore the marks of blows.“We offer our condolences to his family and fellow workers, and we urge the authorities to establish the circumstances of his murder,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The perpetrators and instigators of this crime must be arrested and punished.”Hashemi had been radio Nadjhrab’s chief technician for the past four years. He also hosted two of its programmes, its press review and “Morvaride hay honar” (Pearls of the Arts). Radio Nadjhrab is the Kapisa Valley’s most popular station.His wife said he was threatened several times before his disappearance. The police seem to be working on the assumption that the motive was of a personal nature and have arrested three members of his family without explaining why.Radio Nadjhrab director Abdol Mutalib Hame told Reporters Without Borders: “It is still too early to talk about a motive but I was not aware of threats being made against him. None of our journalists has been threatened recently.
