first_imgThe ISIF, unlike the NPRF, will invest in Ireland with the aim of stimulating economic activity in the wake of the country’s bailout.As a result, the NPRF will gradually sell off its non-domestic holdings so the cash can be redeployed.In other news, a £650m (€790m) London pension fund is to increase its exposure to alternatives, investing £50m in the asset class.The London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Pension Fund has asked bfinance to oversee the diversified alternatives tender process, allocated more than a year ago after it decided to overhaul its investment strategy.As part of the shift, the fund said it would also invest an undisclosed amount in social housing or inflation-linked real estate – with manager interviews scheduled to be conducted for both mandates in March.“With these changes, it is hoped that the fund will be flexible and responsive to adapt to changes in the future,” the fund’s 2014 Business Plan said.Its tender said it would appoint one manager to the diversified alternatives portfolio, managing the money either as a segregated account or a pooled fund.Asset managers have until 10 March to apply, with further information available from bfinance’s London office. The National Pensions Reserve Fund has sold its entire private equity portfolio, most recently valued at €716m, to a US secondary private equity manager.In a statement, the fund said Lexington Partners had agreed to acquire an estimated €800m in fund holdings and outstanding commitments, spread across two dozen private equity funds.The sale, initiated in September last year, is expected to finalise in the coming months, the NPRF added.The reserve fund decided to sell its private equity holdings, comprising close to 11% of its discretionary portfolio, as part of a shift in asset allocation ahead of the €6.8bn portfolio’s transformation into the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF).last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 21, 2015 at 2:16 pm Syracuse (17-10, 8-6 Atlantic Coast) came out flat early Saturday afternoon in the Carrier Dome and, despite a tight finish, the Orange was handed a 65-61 loss from Pittsburgh (18-10, 7-7). Here are three quick takeaways from the showing.1. The bad, the bad and the uglyThe biggest faux pas on Saturday was the misspelled memento jersey Roosevelt Bouie received from SU on the day it was honoring the former big man. The Orange’s showing on the court, though, wasn’t much better.Trevor Cooney’s missed layup on the break with 13:06 left in the first half said it all, encompassing the misery of the Orange’s 1-for-13 start from the field. Although Syracuse did well in the paint and at the free-throw line, it was not converting from midrange and the perimeter.SU recovered to shoot 42.9 percent from the field overall, but the ugly start held back the offense from picking up any semblance of confidence.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text2. Pitt bullsTyler Roberson resembled a boxer by the end of the afternoon.Stiches over his left eye, which was nearly closed, and a bloody nose were proof of Roberson’s physical battle against the Panthers. He went to the locker room in the first half to be treated after a gash over his left eye shed blood.He wasn’t quite the facilitator out of the high post that he’s been in recent games, but Roberson scrapped with Pittsburgh’s forwards and had nine points and six rebounds to show for it in addition to his battle scars.3. Out of nowhereOn a day of unpredictability, B.J. Johnson and Ron Patterson were two of the Orange’s more notable contributors on offense.Patterson, hitting a 3 and a baseline jumper in the second half, provided SU with its first field goals outside of the paint Saturday. Johnson hit a trio of 3s to help Syracuse keep pace with Pittsburgh despite its starting guards, Cooney and Kaleb Joseph, being less productive than usual. Patterson finished with nine points on 4-of-5 shooting while Johnson tallied 11 points by tacking on two free throws to his three 3s. Commentslast_img read more
