The chief executive of Sweden’s biggest pension fund Alecta has said the consumer protection element of rules to implement the EU’s IORP II regulatory framework is not necessarily relevant to Swedish labour-market pensions, and that high risk-free capital requirements could actually lead to weak protection for consumers.In a blog on the SEK877bn (€81.1bn) pension provider’s website, Magnus Billing said: “Unnecessarily high consumer protection with regard to capital requirements provides unnecessarily weak consumer protection regarding the size of the pension.”Although it may seem better for companies’ financial stability to have higher risk-free capital requirements, Billing argued it was not that simple.“We, as managers of occupational pensions, have a responsibility to manage the capital so that pensioners receive as good a pension as possible, without taking unnecessarily large risks and without making it too costly for employers. “It may seem obvious what consumer protection is, but unfortunately, different actors interpret it in slightly different ways” Magnus Billing, Alecta CEO“It may seem obvious what consumer protection is, but unfortunately, different actors interpret it in slightly different ways,” he said.On a global level, he said, consumer protection was about balancing potential power or knowledge imbalances. But in Sweden the imbalance between an assumed strong employer, who takes out occupational pension insurance, and the presumed weaker worker as the beneficiary, had been addressed by the social partners — employers’ organisations and trade unions — negotiating an agreement on occupational pensions, such as ITP, on behalf of their members. ITP is the supplementary occupational pension system in Sweden.The knowledge imbalance was evened out by having experienced and competent pension specialists as the negotiators, said Billing.Another potential imbalance that the EU was focusing on was between a supposedly strong financial or insurance company and a supposedly weaker individual employer with a knowledge disadvantage.“This is also largely addressed in Sweden thanks to the fact that the parties, after agreeing on the contents of the insurance, jointly procure the managers of the pensions,” he said.Unfortunately, he added, in many cases EU legislation has not taken this Swedish solution into account, but Alecta was working continuously to help Swedish and other relevant EU politicians and EU officials better understand the Swedish situation. Last month, Alecta issued a joint response with other pensions stakeholders to draft IORP II solvency rules released by the Swedish financial supervisory authority, saying the new rules would negatively affect both pension savers and employers. “Unfortunately, low-risk investments also result in lower returns,” he said.If Sweden unnecessarily reduced the occupational pensions for the 90% of workers covered by collective agreements, the pressure on the already heavily-burdened public pension system would increase, he said.Since the financial crisis, Billing said, everyone was talking about consumer protection, and particularly in the pensions industry. The Swedish financial supervisory authority has been consulting on a proposal for IORP II-based solvency rules for occupational pension activities in the country.

Smith thinks that number of fans could be kept at a safe distance from one another in the stadium, which seats about 105,000. Face masks and other precautions would be required to limit the spread of COVID-19. He says he hasn’t figured out yet how spectators would be chosen from among those wanting tickets.Smith also says Ohio State is ready to open the 15,000-square-foot Woody Hayes Athletic Center to student-athletes starting June 8 if the NCAA allows it. About 10 players at a time would be allowed to work out on staggered scheduled with social-distancing and other hygiene precautions in place.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden says Scott “will help us think through how we can get sport back safely in a way that helps both clubs, players and supporters alike.”Scott has been working as a television presenter and soccer pundit since retiring from playing in 2017.At a Downing Street news conference, Dowden also said he hopes some Premier League games will be available for free on television if the season can resume because fans won’t be allowed to attend.All 380 Premier League games are aired globally apart from in Britain, where only 200 a season are broadcast live on pay TV to ensure fans still attend games.___ ___The German soccer federation says the country’s top women’s league will resume May 29 after nearly three months without games.The 12-team league has six rounds of games to play before the planned finish June 28.No games have been played since March 1. Wolfsburg leads the league by eight points ahead of Bayern Munich and is on target for its fourth consecutive national title.The federation says the women’s German cup final will end the season in Cologne on July 4. It’s a chance for Anisimova to play tennis amid the coronavirus pandemic with some money, albeit no WTA ranking points, on the line — and for fans to watch live tennis on television.Anisimova, who is ranked 28th, will be joined by No. 19 Alison Riske, No. 51 Danielle Collins and No. 56 Ajla Tomljanovic at the made-for-TV event scheduled for Friday through Sunday.“It’s the closest thing we can get to competing nowadays,” Tomljanovic said on a video conference, “and I think we’ve all missed what we’ve known for all our lives, really.”They’ll be playing on the same court — and with the same social-distancing and cleaning measures —used earlier this month for a four-man event won by Reilly Opelka.The professional tours are on hiatus at least until late July because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Workouts will be limited to 45 minutes, and areas beyond the court will remain closed. Staff members in the building must wear gloves and masks at all times. Players must wear masks, too, except when on the court. Symptom and temperature checks and contact tracing will also be conducted by team medical staff upon entry into the facility.“Being able to come in and do something basketball-related is, frankly, a release for a lot of players, especially at a time where they’ve been cooped up for a while. I think they want to do something,” Timberwolves vice president for basketball performance and technology Robby Sikka said. “But our first priority is their safety and their welfare.”___Former England soccer player Alex Scott will join a government task force that will examine ways for sports to resume in the country during the coronavirus pandemic.While the Women’s Super League season looks as if it’s being curtailed, the men’s Premier League still hopes to resume next month. Associated Press The Latest: Ohio State AD talks football games this fall Mike Conley of the Utah Jazz has donated a total of $200,000 to five communities to assist with the coronavirus response.Conley’s donation will go toward addressing food insecurity, homelessness and remote learning needs.He is giving to the Utah Food Bank in Salt Lake City; CodeCrew in Memphis, Tennessee; Community Shelter Board and the Columbus Urban League in Columbus, Ohio; the Indianapolis Public Schools Foundation in Indianapolis; and the New Haven Missionary Baptist Church in West Helena, Arkansas.Conley says the pandemic “has reminded me that I am in this position because of the support and sacrifices of others I’ve encountered all along the way. I wanted to be there for the communities that have been fundamental to my personal growth.”___ ___The presidents of the University of Miami and Notre Dame say in separate interviews that they expect the football season to be played, though both raised the very real possibility of crowds being much smaller than usual or eliminated entirely.Appearing on CNN, Miami’s Dr. Julio Frenk says he hopes the Hurricanes can play this fall and that safety would be the top priority.“They will probably play in empty stadiums, like so many other sports,” Frenk said. “But we hope to have a season and we hope to have a winning season.”Speaking on MSNBC, Notre Dame’s the Rev. John Jenkins says he expects to have clarity on how — or if — football season can happen in the next few weeks. “A lot of questions have to be answered from a league perspective before something like that can take place,” Guzan said. “I don’t think it would be for every game left in the season. I don’t think you can ask the players to relocate to another city for the rest of the season.”___The Italian soccer federation has given the country’s top three leagues until Aug. 20 to complete their seasons.The federation has also come up with alternative plans if the leagues have to be halted again because of the coronavirus pandemic. They could resort to playoffs or decide positions by applying coeffecients.The following season is now scheduled to start on Sept. 1. “The team itself, I feel we can manage that one,” Jenkins said. “Then the question is people in the stands. We have an 85,000-person stadium. Can we get 85,000 people in there? That will be a big challenge to do that. But could we get a smaller number — 10,000, 15,000, 20,000? I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that question. That’s something we’ll have to think through.”___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 If Major League Soccer resumes its season, it surely will be without fans in the stands.Goalkeeper Brad Guzan says that would be a huge blow to Atlanta United.The franchise has set numerous attendance records since joining MLS in 2017, averaging more than 50,000 per league game each of the last two seasons. Atlanta drew an announced crowd of 69,301 for this year’s opener at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but the season was shut down a few days later because of the coronavirus pandemic.“We’re lucky with the support and atmosphere and energy that’s created in our stadium,” Guzan said on a video conference call with Atlanta media. “We’re all eager to get back, but we have to get back in a safe and responsible way. If that means fans can’t take part, that’s a massive blow to us. That’s certainly something we feed off of on game day.”Guzan expressed some skepticism about the idea of resuming the season with all teams based in Orlando, a proposal that has been floated as the best way to get the season going again after a two-month layoff. Klopp compared the current period to a pre-season and is keeping things simple to start off with despite saying his players are “in good shape.”The German coach says the players are “getting used to the pitch, boots and ball, turns, passes, half-passes, softer passes, running, little accelerations and stuff like that.”Liverpool leads the Premier League by 25 points and needs to win two more games to clinch its first league title since 1990.___The Kentucky-Michigan college basketball matchup scheduled for Dec. 6 in London has been postponed until 2022 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Doleva says in a statement that the “unknown combination” of health, safety, international travel regulations and the economic viabilities for all parties required postponing the event.Kentucky coach John Calipari says he is disappointed to not go to London and looked forward to meeting Queen Elizabeth II.“But I’m glad we were all able to come together, figure this out and preserve this series for the future,” Calipari says.Michigan coach Juwan Howard says: “The Hall of Fame took the time to review what is happening around the world and explore all options — all the safe options for the teams and most importantly the fans. The best thing is this tremendous event isn’t canceled, it’s just delayed.” Also Wednesday, the men’s league confirmed plans to finish June 27 after scheduling all remaining games.

World Athletics has launched a $500,000 fund alongside the International Athletics Foundation (IAF) to help athletes affected financially by the coronavirus pandemic.The world of sport has been decimated by the outbreak of COVID-19, which has seen the Olympic Games in Tokyo postponed by a year until 2021.That had a knock-on effect with the World Athletics Championships, originally scheduled for 2021 in Oregon, pushed back by 12 months, while the 2020 European Championships have been cancelled.A World Athletics statement said the fund will be used to help athletes who have lost the majority of their income from the suspension of international competition.Resources from the 2020 and 2021 budgets of the IAF, of which Prince Albert II of Monaco is honorary president, will be allocated to help athletes.World Athletics president and IAF chair Sebastian Coe will front “an expert multi-regional working group to assess the applications for assistance, which will be submitted through World Athletics’ six Area Associations”.Olympic champion and 1500 metres world record-holder Hicham El Guerrouj and Olympic pole vault champion Katerina Stefanidi are among the members of the working group, which will convene in the coming week for talks over how to award and distribute grants to individual athletes and to assess means of raising additional monies for the fund.“I would especially like to thank Hicham for bringing this idea to us, and Prince Albert for his strong support of this project,” Coe said.“I am in constant contact with athletes around the world and I know that many are experiencing financial hardship as a consequence of the shutdown of most international sports competition in the last two months.“Our professional athletes rely on prize money as part of their income and we’re mindful that our competition season, on both the track and road, is being severely impacted by the pandemic.“We are hopeful that we will be able to stage at least some competition later this year, but in the meantime we will also endeavour, through this fund and additional monies we intend to seek through the friends of our sport, to help as many athletes as possible.”El Guerrouj added: “The pandemic is causing economic pain to people from all parts of society, including athletes, and this is a time when we must come together as a global community to help each other.“I am delighted that Seb and World Athletics reacted so positively to my suggestion that we create a fund for athletes, and have made it happen with the support of the International Athletics Foundation.“The suspension of competition has had a huge impact on many professional athletes because they can’t earn prize money so I’m really pleased that we have found a way to assist them.”Prince Albert II said he hopes the initiative can help athletes continue preparations for next year’s Games.“I created more than 35 years ago the International Athletics Foundation with the late Primo Nebiolo to encourage and promote athletics and grant financial assistance to athletics federations and the most deserving athletes,” he said.“Since its inception the Foundation has distributed for these purposes more than $30million. I am delighted that we can put our resources behind this initiative so we can make a difference to the lives of athletes who are suffering financially at this time.“We hope that this support will help those athletes preparing for international competition, including next year’s Olympic Games, to sustain their training, support their families and that this will relieve them of some stress in these uncertain times.”(Omnisport)

Ethan Chan, a junior majoring in electrical engineering, recalled the many times when Huang made him laugh.“I met him freshman year and got to know him more sophomore year,” Chan said. “He loved to joke around with everyone. He was a great person to be around.”Mary M. Eshaghian-Wilner, one of Huang’s electrical engineering professors, said Huang’s death was a huge loss to everyone.“He was a brilliant, great student,” Eshaghian-Wilner said. “I’ve been trying to deal with it with my students. It’s a very difficult loss.”Rami Mazid, a junior majoring in electrical engineering and a classmate of Huang, said his absence will be felt by all who knew him both in and out of the classroom.“We did a lot of work together, and we always helped each other out,” Mazid said. “He was [one of] the smartest people I knew by far. His passing was a loss for all of us.”Those who knew Huang remember him most for his optimism, even in the face of challenges.“I’ve never seen him down,” Chan said. “Though school may get hard and busy, he always worked through it.”Viterbi School of Engineering Dean Yannis Yortsos comforted students by comparing life to Huang’s passion for rock climbing in his speech at the memorial.“Your world is literally upside down, and you are tightening your arms and fingertips the entire time as you climb. The only way to move forward is to blindly leap with faith through the air,” Yortsos said.Vice President of Student Affairs Michael L. Jackson said Huang’s time at USC was one filled with true friendships.“He wanted to build lifetime friendships with the people he met at USC and around the world,” Jackson said. “I know that he cherished his memories with all of you more than you can possibly imagine.”In addition to being a beloved member of the Trojan Family, Huang was also a beloved son. Huang’s father, Yuejiang Huang, praised his son for his dedication, diligence and warm spirit.In a speech in Mandarin addressed to his son, Huang’s father reminisced about his son’s positive nature throughout his short life.“You were such a good boy,” Huang’s father said according to a printed translation. “Your family and friends all loved you when you were with us. I am grateful that you were beloved by so many people throughout your short-lived life.”Huang’s father concluded his statement by thanking those within the Trojan community who supported the family following Huang’s death.“I would like to express my appreciation toward everyone who had helped and taken care of Xinhai,” Huang’s father said. “I hope all of Xinhai’s friends will continue to live their lives with health and happiness.”Dean of Religious Life Varun Soni urged those in attendance to remember Huang’s legacy.“Let us be inspired by his life, and let us recognize that we are all deeply connected in miracle and in mystery to this university, to this community and to each other,” Soni said.
