US lawmaker calls for probe into fiduciary management conflicts of interest

first_imgOn both sides of the Atlantic, the issue of conflicts of interest has often been cited as a main concern for pension fund trustees when considering, or ruling out, the use of a fiduciary manager.Despite this, in Europe, the growth of fiduciary management has been substantial, as it reaches maturity in the Netherlands and sees year-on-year growth in the UK.In the UK, the market is dominated by consultancies converting investment-consultancy clients into fiduciary management clients, in arrangements similar to those highlighted by congressman Miller.While the overall AUM in fiduciary contracts grew in the UK, most mandates still fell to traditional investment consultancies.A recent study by consultancy KPMG often found these mandates were awarded without an open tender, although this practice has begun to subside. According to KPMG, the UK fiduciary management market is worth approximately £58bn (€71.5bn), as at 30 June 2013, with around 345 mandates.However, 75% of mandates were awarded to implemented consultancies over specialist fiduciary management providers and investment managers, the latter only accounting for 3% of mandates.Further, nearly half of pension funds with fiduciary mandates make no effort to review manager performance independently.Data from IPE sister publication IP Nederland found that around 80% of pension fund assets in the Netherlands were managed in fiduciary contracts. However, the Dutch market is more accustomed to employing specialist providers compared with the UK.It is the style of fiduciary management most prevalent in the UK to which the US politician has raised concern for his own market.The Wall Street Journal recounts a similar 75% figure of pension consultants acting as both investment managers and advisers for clients, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).Also, an SEC investigation in 2005 found that consultants had accepted payments from investment managers as they advised pension fund clients on which managers to select for mandates. A senior US politician has written to the federal government calling for a fresh investigation into pension fund consultants that also manage investments, particularly regarding conflicts of interest.In a letter seen by US broadsheet The Wall Street Journal, senior Rep. George Miller (Democrat, California) wrote to US secretary of state for Labour, Thomas Perez, requesting that he investigate possible conflicts of interest in consultancies that manage investments in addition to providing investment advice.In the letter, Miller claimed the growing trend of US pension funds – with $18.8bn (€13.4bn) in assets, according to Towers Watson – using consultancies to manage assets created significant and inappropriate conflicts.He called on the Labor Department to look into the practice as the government body works to create new governing rules on the role of advisers.last_img read more

“Are You a Junkie?,” Biden Asks Reporter Questioning His Cognitive Abilities

first_imgBarnett continued by asking what Biden thinks of President Trump, who is 74, making his opponent’s mental state an issue for voters.Biden replied, “Look, man, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I’m looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates. There’s going to be plenty of time.”He continued, “I am very willing to let the American public judge my personal and mental fil– my physical as well as my mental fil– my fitness and to make a judgment about who I am.”Meanwhile, President Trump has also has gone to great lengths to prove that he is up to continuing in the job. He has repeatedly described a test that doctors reportedly gave him, while calling on his opponent to take the same exam. Former Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden snapped at a reporter on Wednesday, when an interviewer asked whether he had taken a cognitive test.The response? Biden became defensive, asking the interviewer, CBS correspondent Errol Barnett, if he was a junkie and had been tested for cocaine use.“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden asked. “Come on, man. That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, if you had to take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?”The 77-year-old’s response contradicted remarks he made last June at a press conference, when he said he was “constantly tested” for mental decline, in response to a reporter’s question.During that encounter, he said, “All you gotta do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” after calling the reporter a “lying dog face.”“Why the hell would I take a test?”@JoeBiden scoffs at idea of taking a cognitive test.Suggests @realDonaldTrump “can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion.”Full interview at @NABJ @NAHJ virtual convention Thursday 8am [email protected] pic.twitter.com/rGNJpjfbF6— errol barnett (@errolbarnett) August 5, 2020last_img read more
