Anders Schelde, the CIO of Nordea Life & Pension in Denmark, has been appointed as the new CIO of MP Pension, the labour-market pension fund for academic public sector staff.He is set to take up the new post on 1 November.Jens Munch Holst, chief executive of MP Pension, said Schelde had achieved tremendous results for Nordea Life & Pension.“Under Anders, we will continue to focus on creating a high level of return on a responsible basis for the pleasure and benefit of our members,” Munch Holst said. Schelde will take over the CIO role from MP Pension’s previous head of investments Niels Erik Petersen, whose departure after 10 years at the pension fund was announced in April.Schelde said: “I am pleased to be part of a developing organisation with skilled co-workers, a clear strategy and a strong focus on responsible investment.”At MP Pension, Schelde will be in charge of investing the fund’s total pension assets of DKK106bn (€14.3bn), according to 2016 end-of-year figures. Nordea Life & Pensions Denmark had total assets of DKK227bn at the end of last December, and is part of the larger Nordea Life & Pensions group in the Nordics.“Many large organisations have energy and muscle they can use, but in a smaller organisation you can see the light as soon as you press the button,” Schelde said, quoted by Danish news site FinansWatch.The effect of one’s work was seen immediately, he said.“That is the great thing about being in a smaller organisation,” Munch Holst added, also quoted by FinansWatch.MP Pension recently became independent, after years of cooperation with the Architects’ Pension Fund and the Pension Fund for Agricultural Academics and Veterinary Surgeons under the Unipension common pensions management umbrella came to an end in December 2015.
JAKARTA—Danny Kingad wanted to go for a quick finish, but Yuya Wakamatsu had other plans.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “He’s really legitimate a boxer,” Kingad said of Wakamatsu, who made his debut in ONE Championship. “I was really caught off guard with his punch. I felt the power of his punches.”But the Team Lakay fighter went back to his original game plan and brought the fight to the mat, where he dominated Wakamatsu in a display of his much-improved ground game.“Coach Mark [Sangiao] drew up a game plan, and that was to throw strikes to set up a takedown, because we knew that wrestling would be my advantage,” Kingad added.Like Pacio, Kingad also dedicated his victory to the victims left by Typhoon Ompong in the Cordillera region.“We’re very happy that we won because this fight is for them. We were really going 100% for them.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Isaiah Thomas looks to help Nuggets end playoff drought Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
