Misguided belief in outperformance to blame for bonus culture – academic

first_imgIn practice, he said, many arrangements between pension funds and asset managers regarding bonuses involve performance that cannot assessed, due to lack of expertise.He said too many pension board members believed that an academic course lasting just a few days was sufficient to challenege hedge fund managers, something he described as a “grave misconception”.He also criticised the ease with which pension funds outsource work by “simply by throwing it over the fence to an asset manager”.“Nobody lends their car to somebody without ensuring they have a driving licence,” Koelewijn said. “But we just put our money outside, and are confident everything goes well.”The professor called for an increase in expertise among pension trustees.He also claimed the DNB and the AFM, both regulators in the Netherlands, were drawing up rules that were too detailed, failing to take into account the people at which they are aimed. Outperformance is almost impossible, and pension funds’ willingness to pay for it is contributing to the current bonus culture, according to Jaap Koelewijn, a professor of corporate finance at Nijenrode Business University.Speaking at a seminar on fee policy and bonuses at Dutch pension funds, Koelewijn argued that a number of studies show that outperformance is hardly ever achievable.“Asset managers suggest they can outperform, and clients are willing to believe this,” he said. “It is a kind of magic we are kidding ourselves into.”However, Koelewijn, who is also an independent adviser on financial supervision, acknowledged that bonuses were not necessarily negative in concept, as long there was a clear relation between the reward and the delivered result.last_img read more

Push for warning labels on alcohol

first_imgONE News 22 Nov 2012Coroner JP Ryan’s call for all alcohol products to carry health warnings is being supported by Alcohol Healthwatch. Ryan says William Paki died last December as a direct result of consuming too much alcohol and the coroner believes Paki probably was unaware of the risk. Ryan said “it is a constant source of concern” that a product which can result in the death of the consumer when drunk in excess can be sold without any warning. “I feel compelled to reiterate the need for such an inherently dangerous product to contain a warning to consumers.”…Alcohol Healthwatch director Rebecca Williams says the alcohol industry has “got away with not informing its consumers of the real risks associated with their products for far too long”. Williams said labels can be effective in raising awareness of the risks of consuming alcohol and “would be more effective when used in conjunction with measures such as increasing price and restricting the marketing and availability of alcohol in an integrated alcohol harm prevention strategy”. Williams said it is astonishing that a product that causes the premature death of 1000 New Zealanders each year is not required to advise consumers of the risks. Ryan has recommended that the appropriate Government agency consider making it a legal requirement that every container of alcohol carry a label warning consumers of the risk of death if an excessive amount is consumedhttp://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/push-warning-labels-alcohol-5233559last_img read more
