Russian government to extend moratorium on second-pillar contributions

first_imgRussia’s mandatory second-pillar pension system is in chaos again as the government appears bent on extending the moratorium on mandatory pensions contributions to non-state pension funds (NSPFs).In early August, Labour and Social Protection minister Maxim Topilin confirmed that, as in 2014, all mandatory contributions would be diverted to the first pillar in 2015.Topilin called the funded second pillar inefficient and ineffective, and of benefit only to the financial institutions that run the funds.The minister’s statements have fuelled fears the government is considering abolishing the system or converting it to a voluntary one. The NSPFs, in place since 2002, have more than 22m members and assets under management of around €23.5bn as of the end of March.The statements also exposed tensions between the so-called ‘social’ and ‘financial’ blocs within the Russian authorities.The former are primarily concerned with reducing the deficit and budget transfers to the Pension Fund of Russia, the first-pillar institution.The latter look at the implications of shrinking a pool of domestic financing at a time of escalating EU and US sanctions in the wake of the Ukraine crisis, and escalating Russian government borrowing costs.Interfax, citing an anonymous Bank of Russia source, wrote that the central bank criticised the extension for undermining confidence in the pensions system and depriving the economy of much needed investment.Meanwhile, Deputy Economics minister Sergei Belyakov, who on 6 August apologised on his Facebook page for what, in his personal opinion, was a “stupid” policy, lost his job later that day.The policy also runs counter to the Finance Ministry’s own plans for pension funds.Its public declaration of goals and objectives for 2014, published on the ministry’s website in early June, singled out pension funds as the realistic source of long-term domestic financing in Russian investment projects.The National Association of Non-State Pension Funds (NAPF) has also published a highly critical response.It laid the blame for poor returns on weaknesses in the Russian stock market and existing pension fund investment regulation, reminding the government that it had been discussing extending the list of permissible assets for the last five years.It accused the government, through its unilateral decision to extend the contributions moratorium, of once again failing to consult with other partners (employers and trade unions) in the Trilateral Commission on the Regulation of Social and Labour Relations.It also accused the government of backtracking on president Vladimir Putin’s earlier promise, made in 2013, to restore contribution flows once the system was reorganised to improve transparency and strengthen safeguards.All the non-state funds had to convert from their status as non-profit-making entities to joint-stock corporations, institute a system of guarantees and obtain a licence from the Bank of Russia.Currently, funds accounting for some 76% of all assets have made the conversion, a share expected to rise to more than 95% by the end of the year.last_img read more

Dortmund chiefs casting doubt on Man Utd move for Sancho

first_img Loading… Prospective Manchester  United move for Jadon Sancho has been thrown into question after both the Borussia Dortmund CEO and Sporting Director poured cold water on the transfer. The Red Devils have made no secret of making signing Jadon Sancho their number one priority this summer. Various reports have offered updates on the ever-changing situation, with one source revealing how Man Utd could structure the huge deal. However, information from the German aspect has been relatively thin on the ground so far, until now. Despite claims of negotiations being at an advanced stage, German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung (via SportWitness) have painted a very different picture. The outlet feature quotes from the Dortmund hierarchy that indicate any potential deal is a long way away from materialising, if at all. Hans-Joachim Watzke – Dortmund’s Managing Director – is reported as saying: “So far, there has been no contact between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United in terms of Sancho.” His statement is qualified with: “Also not indirectly or through alleged intermediaries.”Advertisement Those sentiments are echoed by Dortmund’s Sporting Director, Michael Zorc, who even hinted the club expect Sancho to attend their impending training camp. “I assume that Jadon will go to the training camp on Monday and play with us for the coming season,” said Zorc. Regarding Dortmund playing hardball over their high valuation, Zorc revealed that Sancho would have no problems with their strategy. “I don’t expect any difficulties. Jadon has accepted that, he’s a very pleasant, fair guy.” read also:Former Barcelona director Won’t rule out Messi moving to Inter Süddeutsche Zeitung end their article by saying: ‘In Dortmund they still do not think it is impossible that Woodward will surprise them with a suitcase containing €120m. ‘But it is more likely that there is a much lower offer, which is then rejected. ‘So all sides would have saved face, and in Manchester they could at least say to the fans: We tried, the stubborn Dortmund did not take part.’ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted ContentBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemIs This The Most Delicious Food In The World?The Highest Paid Football Players In The World6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually TrueCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do6 Major TV Characters We Were Relieved To See Leaving The Show7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Thailand’s Most Exquisite Architectural WondersBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made7 Famous And Incredibly Unique Places In Thailandlast_img read more
