Activist hedge funds are not a reason to limit the rights of shareholders

first_img Related news A recent paper finds no evidence to support the claim that interventions by activist hedge funds have a negative effect on the long-term shareholder value and corporate performance. In a paper published by the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), authors Lucian Bebchuk, Alon Brav, and Wei Jiang “subject this claim to a comprehensive empirical investigation, examining a long five-year window following activist interventions, and we find that the claim is not supported by the data.” Investors must fight against income inequality, SHARE says Divestment and engagement work together to drive ESG Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Keywords Shareholder activism center_img Power, politics and passivity in the public markets James Langton Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The paper focuses on 2,000 interventions by activist hedge funds between 1994 and 2007, and finds “no evidence that activist interventions, including the investment-limiting and adversarial interventions that are most resisted and criticized, are followed by short-term gains in performance that come at the expense of long-term performance.” There is also no evidence that the initial positive stock-price spike that follows an activist intervention tends to be followed by negative abnormal returns in the long term, the authors say. “To the contrary, the evidence is consistent with the initial spike reflecting correctly the intervention’s long-term consequences,” the authors say. In addition, there is no evidence that the exit of an activist investor is followed by abnormal long-term negative returns. “Our findings have significant implications for ongoing policy debates,” the authors suggest. “Policymakers and institutional investors should not accept the validity of the assertions that activist interventions are costly to firms and their shareholders in the long term,” the authors say “such claims do not provide a valid basis for limiting the rights, powers, and involvement of shareholders.” The paper, “Long-Term Effects of Hedge Fund Activism” is due to be published in the Columbia Law Review.last_img read more

SEC moving to require brokers to reveal conflicts for advice

first_imgWall street sign in New York with American flags and New York Stock Exchange background. kasto/123RF Associated Press Federal regulators in the U.S. are moving to require that brokers provide their customers with detailed disclosures of their potential conflicts of interest when dispensing advice for retirement planning and other investments.But critics say the Securities and Exchange Commission’s new measure, supported by the financial industry, doesn’t go far enough to protect retail investors against abuses. They say a stricter standard advanced under the Obama administration should apply to brokers. Task force recommends sweeping changes to OSC New IAFP program lets CFAs fast-track to planner designation Keywords Securities regulations The stricter fiduciary duty rule required all financial professionals — not just registered investment advisors — to act as trustees obligated to put their clients’ interests before their own. It was targeted for watering-down by President Donald Trump in early 2017 and defeated in the courts by the industry.Americans increasingly seek financial advice to help them navigate an array of options for retirement, college savings and more.Many financial professionals provide investment advice, but not all of them are registered advisors who are legally required to put clients’ interests above their own or to disclose potential conflicts of interest that could colour their advice. Critics of the current system say investors lose billions of dollars a year because of advice from brokers with conflicts.The change to be adopted by the SEC on Wednesday could affect how hundreds of billions of dollars in Americans’ retirement and other investments are handled by brokers. Brokers sell stocks, bonds, mutual funds, annuities and other investments, which they may recommend to clients. They sometimes receive commissions for selling specific financial products.As proposed over a year ago, the SEC best interest regulation would require brokers to tell clients how much they collect from recommending products. They would have to provide clients with a new short-form disclosure document with key facts about the broker-client relationship, including potential conflicts of interest.SEC Chairman Jay Clayton has said the regulation is “a significant step” toward increasing investor protection while also “preserving investors’ access to a range of products and services at a reasonable cost.”Brokers wouldn’t be allowed to use the term “adviser” as part of their name or title in dealings with retail investors. They also would have to give clients details of their registration status with the SEC.Critics point out that “best interest” isn’t specifically defined.“The regulations the agency is set to approve are a betrayal of the ‘Mr. and Ms. 401(k)’ investors [Clayton] pledged to protect when he undertook this rulemaking,” the Consumer Federation of America and Americans for Financial Reform said in a joint statement. “The drain on people’s hard-earned savings will continue.”Details of the final regulation, which follows an extensive public comment period for the proposal, weren’t immediately known but it was expected to fall close to the proposed plan.“What they’ve proposed is a big step forward over what we’ve got now,” said James Angel, a professor at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business who’s an expert on financial markets regulation.Current regulations mandate brokers recommend only suitable investments to their clients — appropriate for their age, other demographic characteristics, tolerance for risk and investment goals. That’s less stringent than the fiduciary standard.A key question, Angel suggested, is whether the SEC regulation will prohibit some especially egregious practices, such as contests rewarding brokers who sell the most products with trips to Florida in the winter and other perks.Most Main Street investors may not be knowledgeable about financial industry practices, like the fees they’re charged for investment advice or the commissions collected by their brokers. The typical client “knows they’re making money off him somehow and they’re not sure how,” Angel said.That’s something George Wheeler, a retired information tech professional in Colorado, had mused about his broker. “We were always wondering how much he was making and how he made his money. He was never clear about that. […] We were trusting that our broker was working in our best interest.”Wheeler and his wife, Rachel, say they also hadn’t known that fees were so high on the annuities the broker put them into, for which he promised annual returns of 7% or 8%. In fact, they earned 3% to 4% over a span of about 10 years, usually well below the overall stock market, they said in a telephone interview. As a result, their investment account ended up pretty much where it had started.“I would like to have retired sooner,” said Rachel, who’s leaving her job as a physical therapist at the end of this month.Also read:CSA reforms get mixed reviews Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Shuttering of national securities regulator came as no surprise to industry Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

Ontario budget set for March 25

The government of Ontario will be handing down its next provincial budget on March 25.Finance Minister Rod Phillips said the budget will focus on reducing, and eventually eliminating, the deficit, which is forecast at $9 billion for the current fiscal year.

E-Commerce Transforming Business Landscape – Minister Paulwell

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Industry, Technology, Energy and Commerce, Phillip Paulwell has reiterated that e-commerce was facilitating more seamless business transactions in the island.Addressing the opening ceremony of an exposition hosted by the Small Business Association of Jamaica (SMAJ) yesterday (Nov. 22) at its Trafalgar Road headquarters, Mr. Paulwell pointed out that the recently passed e-commerce Bill would deliver greater prospects to small businesses, as they would be able to bypass expensive advertising to reach a greater market via the world wide web.“A web presence today can get you into the living rooms of thousands and millions of homes across the globe and that is where we want to be especially if we are marketing to niche areas,” the Minister said.He informed that the Trade Board would be authenticating e-businesses through the provision of security features such as e-signatures that would make e-transactions more legitimate.Furthermore, Minister Paulwell informed that the Government was steps closer to a paperless society through the institution of the e-commerce bill, as tax payment transactions were now possible over the Internet.“It is going to make life easier for businesses as well as you have a lot to do with the government. You have to pay your taxes [and] purchase certain services. You are going to be able to do that now without having to incur the unnecessary expenses of having to go to an office to wait long hours to do those transactions,” he said.Mr. Paulwell also used the opportunity to highlight legislation that has been enacted to facilitate the business sector. “Two thousand four saw the historic promulgation of our new Companies Act. This law has enabled Jamaica to be viewed some much more positively in terms of how we do business and how we facilitate business in this country, so you now have the provision of a one person company that you never had before. The process has been simplified to enable registration and all in all it lends itself to enabling smaller persons to be incorporated as businesses,” he outlined.The SBAJ’s month of activities, being observed under the theme ‘Fostering entrepreneurship in Jamaica sector by sector’, was launched by Governor- General, His Excellency Professor Kenneth Hall on November 2.During this month, there will be a training programme scheduled to commence tomorrow (Nov. 24), according to SBAJ President, Oswald Smith.“We are in the process of implementing our strategic plan to put the association in a position to fully support the development of Small and Medium Enterprises to enable them to compete effectively locally and globally,” Mr. Smith said.

Residents of Trelawny Capitalising on Popularity of Yam

first_imgRelatedResidents of Trelawny Capitalising on Popularity of Yam Residents of Trelawny Capitalising on Popularity of Yam AgricultureOctober 8, 2009 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Jamaicans can look forward to consuming tasty pastries made from yam, a popular tuber of the Cockpit country, in the parish of Trelawny.Encouraged by the claim of world sprinter, Usain Bolt’s father, that yam and other foods grown in the Cockpit country had contributed much to Usain’s performance, several residents in the area have been trying to create and promote by-products of yam and to capitalise on other business opportunities.One couple, Ms. Sedonie Brown and her business partner, Mr. Damion Hentley, have started a business venture, called ‘Sedonie’s Yam Pastry’, in Wirefence, Trelawny, where they produce various types of pastries, using yam as the main ingredient.The products were on display at the Family Fun Day and Concert, held on Sunday, October 4 at the Trelawny Multipurpose Stadium. It was organised by the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture, to honour the Jamaican athletes for their excellent performances at the recent International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) World Championships, in Berlin, Germany.Visitors at the function were able to sample a variety of wines and pastries made with yam. These included yam fruit cake, yam bun, yam plain cake, yam pineapple up-side-down cake, yam cookies, yam ‘blue-drawers’ or duckunoo and yam peanut punch. Also on display was a beverage called, the ‘Trelawny Yam Cooler’, made with yam, carrot, cucumber, ginger and lime juice.Ms. Brown, who has won several culinary competitions at her school and also at the annual Trelawny Yam Festival, told JIS News that although yam is used in all the recipes, other natural products are added to make them as “tasteful as possible.”Currently attending a six-month training course in ‘Commercial Food Preparation’, offered by HEART Trust/NTA, in Wait-a-Bit, Trelawny, she said the training has helped her to create some of the culinary delights and to improve on the taste. The products are prepared only for sale at special events or whenever orders are placed by customers, Miss Brown said, noting that there are plans to expand the operation.“I already have plans in place to get it out on the local market. The level I want to bring it to is where every householder knows, tastes and sees the Trelawny by-products. I want it to be in every supermarket, in every pharmacy, every food store. I want everybody in Jamaica and the world to know and taste the wonderful products that we have,” Mr. Hentley told JIS News.He said that he has been approached by persons and agencies that are willing to assist in expanding the business. “I have all intention of following up on that in the near future,” he pointed out.Asked about Usain Bolt’s father’s comment that yam had contributed much to his son’s performance on the track, Mr. Hentley said: “I am not sure if there is any truth to it, but I know that yam has been a part of Trelawny’s diet. I tend to come to some conclusion that there is some connection. Therefore, we are proud to continue promoting the yam by-products that we have here,” he said.Currently, scientific research is in progress to clarify whether the eating of yam has had any effect on the successes of the athletes from the area.Since 2007, Research Scientist in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Mona, Dr. Rachael Irving and Physical Education Lecturer with the Institute of Education and a former Jamaican Olympian, Ms. Vilma Charlton, have been collaborating with Director of the International Centre for East African Running Science (ICEARS), Dr. Yannis Pitsiladis, at the University of Glasgow, to investigate the genetic, environmental and nutritional factors that may be contributing to Jamaica’s success.

Lawrence Tavern Main Road to Re-Open in Four Weeks

first_imgRelatedHundreds to Benefit from Perth Housing Development Related31,000 Public Sector Mortgagors to Benefit from NHT Refunds FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Road rehabilitation works being undertaken along the Lawrence Tavern main road in St. Andrew are scheduled for completion within the next four weeks.The project, which commenced in March, is being executed by the National Works Agency (NWA) through a $60 million allocation under the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing’s Hurricane Sandy Road Rehabilitation Programme.Work is to being done in the Mount Ogle community, where a large part of the road broke away during the passage of Hurricane Sandy last October. The repairs are valued at approximately $34 million and involve construction of a retaining wall and ‘U’ drain, laying of culverts, and the restoration of the affected section of roadway.Additionally, a large breakaway near the Oberlin High School, also caused by Hurricane Sandy, and which reduced that section of the road to single-lane traffic, is being fixed at a cost of $25 million.The works entail construction of a retaining wall, the improvement of the drainage infrastructure, and backfilling and asphalting of the affected section of the roadway.State Minister for Transport, Works and Housing, Hon. Richard Azan, who led a team of officials on a tour of the project sites on Monday, April 29, said he is “very happy” with the extent of the work executed so far.He noted that the repairs, which have a three-month implementation timeline, are “running ahead of schedule”.“The report is that they (contractors) will complete one project in the next two weeks and the other one in the next four weeks, so they are really going ahead of schedule. I am really happy that…, at least, we are past the worst. In the next four weeks (or so), if all goes well, this road will be open to traffic. We are satisfied…with the type of work that is being done here,” Mr. Azan said.In noting the need for maintenance of the country’s road infrastructure, Mr. Azan said the Ministry and NWA will be exploring measures to strengthen this area, during the current fiscal year.Among those accompanying the Minister were NWA Chief Executive Officer, E.G.
