Asset managers hit back at Commission’s sustainability claims

first_imgAsset managers had embraced sustainability as an integral part of the investment process and were supporting the development of responsible investment “in all of its forms”, it said.The Brussels-based association also came out against the Commission’s plan to table a legislative proposal to clarify investors’ duties with regard to sustainability.In its view, such a legislative initiative was not necessary for two reasons.“An EU agenda on sustainable finance should focus on a market-driven approach and avoid creating any unintended barriers to market development”EFAMA“Firstly, consideration of sustainability objectives in investment decision-making or the investment in ‘sustainable’ projects, products or companies has to be driven by those making asset allocation decisions, i.e. asset owners,” said EFAMA.Asset managers could not create “‘sustainable’” products that did not respond or accommodate asset owners’ financial and “impact” objectives, it added.Secondly, approaches to sustainability evolved over time because they were linked to economic activities and associated with innovation and behaviours, EFAMA said.The materiality of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors depended on economic policy, it added.“Any mandatory sustainability requirement, especially regarding investments, would turn ESG into a ‘tick the box’ compliance exercise,” EFAMA warned.The association was supportive of the overall direction of the action plan, however, and welcomed elements such as the plan to strengthen reporting on sustainability and develop an EU classification of sustainable activities.The Commission should carefully consider the means of facilitating ESG investment, with strengthening choice and transparency being more beneficial than a prescriptive legislative approach, the association said.“EFAMA believes that an EU agenda on sustainable finance should focus on a market-driven approach and avoid creating any unintended barriers to market development,” it said. “This is crucial, given the constant evolution of products, practices and end-investor demands. Any legislative initiatives need to be reviewed carefully to ensure that positive market-led trends continue to thrive.”The fear of a “prescriptive” approach echoed concerns expressed by PensionsEurope in response to the final report from the High Level Expert Group (HLEG) that advised the Commission. The European Commission is wrong to state that asset managers do not systematically consider sustainability in their investment processes, according to the European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA).Commenting on the release of the Commission’s action plan on sustainable finance today, the association said it disagreed with action plan statements asserting this.The Commission stated in its full action plan document: “Evidence suggests that institutional investors and asset managers still do not systematically consider sustainability factors and risks in the investment process.”According to EFAMA, however, evidence suggested that integration of sustainability factors had increased in the market over recent years.last_img read more

Swarming Butler defense causes 18 turnovers, key in Bulldogs upset of Syracuse in win

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ SALT LAKE CITY — Ronald Nored couldn’t get enough as he burst through the final hundred feet between the court and the concrete tunnel that would take him to the fuse-lit Butler locker room, primed to explode. ‘Yes sir! Yes sir!’ The guard repeated it ad nauseam as he catapulted his right arm toward every Bulldog fan left hanging over the stands with an empty outstretched hand sitting near the entrance. ‘Yes sir! Yes sir!’  The moment, following the No. 5 seed Bulldogs’ 63-59 upset victory over Syracuse Thursday, was a blur. The kind of light-speed consciousness that would lend itself to forgetting what had just happened. But even as he was herded toward the press table following a few twists and turns, the details were still clear. There was no question about why he was sitting in this position. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘It was our defense that was going to carry us,’ Nored said. ‘I think it did that.’ Leading the Bulldogs with five steals, he was the spokesman for the insatiable Butler defense that rendered Syracuse’s breakneck offense powerless. From the opening tipoff, Syracuse was backpedaling, cycling through its second and third options in a desperate search for a window of opportunity.‘They forced us into 18 turnovers playing man-to-man defense,’ Syracuse assistant coach Rob Murphy said. ‘Very seldom does that happen.’ In the Orange locker room, the broken look canvassing each of the soggy-eyed Syracuse players told the tail end of that story —  what can happen to a team that simply cannot score, a team that gave up 23 points off turnovers and a team that registered its lowest first-half point total of the year.  But during the game, the looks of panic and uncertainty were omnipresent, foreshadowing what would eventually be the bite of reality that brought Syracuse’s dream season crashing down to earth.Take, for example, the cringe on Scoop Jardine’s face midway through the first half as he tried to muscle off a Bulldog defender just inside half court. Jardine’s driving lane was blocked to one side, and with a quick move to his left he barely got off a pass that was picked by Butler forward Gordon Hayward and returned for a quick two. Or the way Rick Jackson watched in disbelief as Butler’s Matt Howard pivoted his body around Jackson’s backside to deliver a crushing block, forcing Syracuse back to the drawing board as its head coach, Jim Boeheim, signaled for a damage-control timeout. It was a look of mounting aggravation. A deep gaze that suggested the odds were stacked against him. ‘I don’t know what it was,’ Jackson said. ‘They just played good. There’s no technical thing, guys were just out there playing. They were never shy or timid to go out and make that home-run play.’ On the other side of the ball, the Bulldogs maintained poise. There were times the Orange offense would go on its runs but were derailed seconds later once Butler could regroup. Syracuse never had a minute inside its comfort zone. Each time down the floor, the first-option pass was cut off. Orange guards would sit at the top of the key conducting an offense that couldn’t move the way it wanted. At each and every turn, there was a Butler defender draping, emerging to cause a turnover. Turnovers that mounted and consequently snowballed: one after another.   ‘It was like, turn the ball over once, come back down and turn the ball over again,’ junior forward Wes Johnson said. ‘It’s very hard to try and get out of. All those turnovers, they hurt you.’  With the way the game ended, Syracuse had the opportunity to second-guess itself in the middle of everything. Maybe, if it would have held onto the ball a little longer, things would have gone differently. If it could have stayed in rhythm for a little longer, it would have been just enough to put this whole mess behind and into the Elite Eight. But for Nored, the look on his face as he swung out of the tunnel suggested certainty. There were no ‘ifs and buts’ — this is what makes Butler good. This was the game plan the entire time. ‘We guarded,’ Nored said. ‘That’s what we do.’ [email protected]center_img Published on March 28, 2010 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more

LeBron James, Lonzo Ball take the night off for Lakers; could return together Wednesday

first_imgJames sat with a similar timeframe in mind. The Lakers have played every other night since their preseason opener in San Diego. While James has yet to play in the second half of any game, Walton thought it would be wise to find a spot for him to rest.“I think it’s been going on 11-12 days with a double-day in there, and he’s been great,” he said. “So it’s more of just, look, we’ve got to be ready for the regular season. Same idea. Tomorrow is off too and he already went and got a workout in at the facility this morning. So it’s more just making sure that when the regular season starts, we’re peaking.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersBut the team has also slow-played Ball’s rehabilitation from offseason knee surgery, holding him out of all preseason games so far despite saying he’s a full participant in practice. Walton said the timing of Wednesday’s game, when Ball will have two days off then be able to practice twice beforehand, was better suited to how the Lakers want to handle his recovery.“He’s close – and again, it’s just us playing it safe right now,” Walton said. “We have tomorrow off. So it’s a nice two-day rest where he can just get treatment and then we got two days of solid practice before the next game. So it just felt like the right thing to do. So, he’s getting real close.”Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed center_img OFFICIATING STRUGGLESAfter racking up 25 fouls against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, the Lakers are still struggling with the new officiating emphasis on freedom of movement. Walton acknowledged as much before Saturday’s game.“I know across the league that’s a common theme right now,” he said. “But we have to control our camp and what we do. If they’re calling fouls, we have to adjust to that and play better, show our hands better. And we will – guys want to.”While the Lakers have had practice officials in practice, Walton said the coaching staff tends to direct them to call more closely or less closely depending on what the Lakers want to see. In a more physical practice, fewer fouls are called at Walton’s direction.What’s left is more film study, Walton said, and wrapping their heads around the new reality in the NBA: Putting hands on opponents will be called more often.CALDWELL-POPE STARTINGThe Lakers made a non-rest related change to the starting lineup, putting Kentavious Caldwell-Pope back in at shooting guard over Josh Hart. Walton said it had little to do with Hart’s performance in his last two games, both as a starter, but more mixing up the rotations.“Again, just looking at different groups together,” he said. “And one of our themes this year is it doesn’t matter who’s starting. Everyone’s gonna play a role. Everyone’s gonna help us win. Everyone’s gonna finish games for us depending on how we’re games are going.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers PreviousLos Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, left, speaks with center Ivica Zubac during a timeout in the first half of an NBA preseason basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

For Lonzo Ball, it was his fourth.But Coach Luke Walton said he expects both to be available Wednesday in Las Vegas, when the Lakers play the Golden State Warriors – setting up James and Ball to play together for the first time as teammates.“That’s one of the things I still need to see that we haven’t had is what lineups look like when both of those guys are playing,” Walton said. “I’m excited and hopeful, but again, we’re going to take it day by day. If any setbacks or whatnot, then we won’t rush it, again. But I would expect Wednesday that happens.”The Lakers have talked excitedly about that possibility since James signed in July: Along with Rajon Rondo, having James and Ball on the floor at the same time could help the team become the best ball-movers in the league. All three were among the top 10 in the league in assists per game last year, and all three are seen as catalysts for the fast-break style the Lakers want to play.
