France’s ERAFP keeps its eye on portfolio diversification

first_imgThe pension fund has been investing more in real estate in recent years and the board indicated that it planned to raise the target allocation from 10% of assets to 11.5-12%.As at the end of December 2017, 8.7% of ERAFP’s assets were allocated to real estate, also valued at amortised cost. Over the coming years the scheme’s allocation will shift so residential assets account for around one third of the real estate allocation, with a focus on rent-controlled housing for middle income households.ERAFP is the compulsory top-up pension scheme for French public service employees, and its real estate policy includes helping its members with housing .Across all asset classes ERAFP put an additional €2.1bn to work over the course of 2018. This included a €200m injection into a new foreign currency hedging portfolio, for which it awarded the mandate to Millennium Global earlier this year.The remainder of the €2bn of fresh investments in 2018 spanned bonds (€377m), equities (€807m), “diversification” (€100m), private equity and infrastructure (€130m), and real estate (€550m), with less than 1% of flows accounted for by withdrawals from its money market funds.The pension fund anticipates having at least €2.5bn to invest annually over the next few years.According to ERAFP, in 2018 it financed the French economy in a broad sense to the tune of €11.9bn, equivalent to 46% of its total assets on an amortised cost basis.Details and definitions: ERAFP reports on wide-ranging SRI policies  France’s ERAFP plans to further scale back the size of its fixed income portfolio this year in an extension of its diversification efforts, according to its latest annual report.Under investment policy decisions adopted by the board in December last year, the €29.6bn pension fund should use this year to pursue the reduction of the bond allocation from 57% to 54% of the fund’s overall portfolio. New investments in bonds should prioritise corporate bonds, including emerging market debt.According to its annual report for 2018, last year ERAFP cut the size of the fixed income portfolio from nearly 60% of assets to 56.6%, valued at amortised cost.Another investment objective for 2019 is to grow the share of variable income assets from 32% to 33-34% of the portfolio, including an increase in private equity and infrastructure fund investments. Following a rule change in late 2018 ERAFP is now permitted to invest up to 5% of its assets in private equity and unlisted infrastructure, up from 3%. Philippe Desfossés speaks at an IPE eventERAFP has for years pursued and promoted socially responsible investing (SRI), which broadly speaking is an investment approach with an acknowledged social bent or objectives. The latest annual report gave no indication of this changing following the departure of Philippe Desfossés, its former CEO and a firm advocate of the approach, with particular emphasis on climate change and the implications for pension funds.Writing in his first contribution to an ERAFP annual report, Desfossés’ successor Laurent Galzy said the pension fund was gradually evolving its investment allocation towards assets such as equities, real estate and infrastructure, which could deliver “a balanced long-term return” but also better contribute to financing the economy.ERAFP would apply and deepen its SRI approach across all its priority asset classes, he said, and was equipping itself with new tools to do so.The pension fund’s annual report included nearly 50 pages dedicated to its SRI approach, with the account structured in accordance with the recommendations set out in what is known as ‘Article 173 ’, France’s comply-or-explain requirements for ESG reporting by institutional investors. ERAFP said it also tried to implement the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.Multiple pages are dedicated to explaining the pension fund’s climate analysis methodology in general, as well as the results of its application to its bond and public equity portfolios.This year it added three elements to its analysis and annual report: exposure to fossil fuels, the equivalent “temperature” of the portfolio, and the “carbon budget ratio”. ERAFP said that the results with regard to the latter two indicators needed to be interpreted with care as the underlying hypotheses and methodology could evolve.last_img read more

Willis pension scheme strikes £1bn longevity hedge with Munich Re

first_imgPeter Routledge, chair of the Willis Pension Scheme, said the scheme considered various options for accessing the market, and decided that Longevity Direct offered “the best value solution” for the scheme.“I am delighted that the trustee has taken a first and significant step to ensure that our members’ benefits are secured against future improvements in life expectancy, supplementing the trustee’s wider risk management programme to protect the scheme against investment and demographic volatility,” he said.“The transaction was concluded effectively, enabling us to access the longevity swap markets whilst pricing was attractive relative to scheme funding.”Willis Towers Watson is predicting that 2020 will be a record year for longevity swaps, as pension derisking transactions have kept pace during the coronavirus-linked lockdown.Ian Aley, head of transactions at the consultancy and lead adviser, said: “The longevity swap market is currently very buoyant and represents an opportunity for pension schemes such as the Willis Pension Scheme to manage a material risk whilst retaining the flexibility to achieve the required investment returns to complete their journey plan.” The pension scheme for employees of the Willis Group, now part of Willis Towers Watson, has entered into a deal with Munich Re to manage the longevity risk in relation to around £1bn (€1.1bn) of pensioner liabilities, it was announced today.The longevity swap transaction covers around 3,500 members of the Willis scheme, which is for members of the Willis Group in the UK who joined prior to 2006.The longevity risk has been transferred to the reinsurer via a Guernsey-based captive insurance company fully owned by the trustee of the scheme.This was established under Willis Towers Watson Guernsey ICC Limited, which is part of Willis Towers Watson’s “Longevity Direct” solution allowing pension schemes to use a ‘ready-made’ incorporated cell company to access the reinsurance market.last_img read more

Mixed emotions about selling dream ‘mini estate’ near Brisbane CBD

first_imgMrs Scott said it was a “very easy commute to everywhere”.“It is very private but so close to everything,” she said. “You just feel like you are living on this grand estate but you are within easy reach of the CBD.“It will be very, very hard to leave.” It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a powder room, a large office, parking for five vehicles and a heated pool. Another favourite spot is the stunning kitchen, a space where Mrs Scott said the family spend a lot of time together.“It is massive, has a large scullery and an enormous amount of storage,” she said.“It also opens out on to the garden.”The location of the property was also a major drawcard for the Scott family as it is only 5km from the city and within the catchments of a number of good schools. But it is the large open, outdoor areas that hold a special place in Mrs Scott’s heart.“The driveway is long and we would play tennis on it, and the kids would race go-carts up and down it,” she said. Other additions include double glazing in all of the bedrooms, effectively “soundproofing” the house. Acoustic insulation has also been installed under the house, keeping it warm in winter and cool in the summer. They have also hosted many family Christmases on the property, and gatherings with family and friends around the pool.Mrs Scott said the house itself was solidly built, and they too had made some improvements on the already spectacular inner-city house. But the family now needs to move closer to family, but that doesn’t make letting go of the 1879sq m property any easier.The character Colonial home had just two owners before the Scott family, and had been extensively renovated in 2010. “We have done an enormous amount of gardening and also popped in a state-of-the-art security system,” she said.“You can survey the whole property from a phone or computer.”center_img Pimped out Queenslander sold in 24 hours “We also put in a material that NASA makes into the roof cavity so it is very quiet.
