Not only are managers vigorously and effectively regulated at a UK level, but they will soon also be subject to EU regulation, with the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) soon to be approved by the European Council. With new EU regulation approaching on areas like derivatives and short-selling, it’s worth remembering why the hedge fund industry is a good thing. The traditional defence of the industry is that it provides liquidity and price discovery to markets, and that is all true. But the industry actually has an important social role and provides value to the broader economy, beyond facilitating market efficiency.For example, the industry provides a lot of jobs, both directly (for managers) and indirectly (for advisers and service providers like lawyers and accountants) – about 40,000 in total in the UK alone, according to our research. It generates significant tax revenues too – we think about £3bn a year. That’s not chump change in these times. And because it is increasingly institutional investors like pension funds who make up the majority of assets managed, the industry has an important social role as the guardian of people’s pensions, of university endowments and charitable investments.Hedge funds do a good job protecting and growing those socially valuable investments because the investment strategies it employs – like short-selling – allow it to “hedge” and help prevent losses when markets fall. That’s why the industry delivers such solid returns for its investors.The figures suggest that institutional investment now makes up about two-thirds (and rising) of all assets being managed by the hedge fund industry. These institutional investors do extensive due diligence on the hedge fund managers they appoint. If they think it’s worth investing in hedge funds, surely it is worth listening to them?And there is another important market function hedge funds provide. They assume risk on behalf of other participants who are less able to do so.It’s better for everyone if risk is dispersed among lots of small, diverse players, rather than concentrated among a few big guys who all do similar things. The “biodiversity” that hedge funds provide actually helps reduce systemic risk and thus prevents financial instability. Andrew Baker is chief executive of the Alternative Investment Management Association. whatsappcenter_img More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org Hedge funds play an important role in society KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼last_img read more

This weekend retreat is projected on a land of little over 1,000 square meters and it is articulated in two main volumes: a prism into which another rectangular wooden prism is embedded.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaSince the very beginning, the purpose of this project was clear: to create a house in which a balance between modernity and coziness was struck. Therefore, we chose to use few materials in order to achieve a quick reading of the volumes.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe first prism consists of a black metal structure that ends on an exposed concrete staple. The two fronts of this volume are made of glass, which helps create a transparency to the interior area and gives a feeling of permanently being in touch with nature.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe second volume is a cantilevered wooden cube, under which a terrace is generated. Requirements for the design of this project included a swimming pool, and we fulfilled them by creating one and covering it with black venetian glass tiles. In this way, the swimming pool was turned into a water mirror that reflects the house.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaFor this project, we decided to integrate art into architecture so that the selected works became a part of the design instead of functioning as mere decorative items. With this principle in mind, we commissioned a hyper-realistic 2 x 6 m painting of a Porsche 78; which was placed in a double height space. In addition to the painting, Juan Carlos Baumgartner designed a mural that works both as the visual end of the swimming pool and as the vestibule of the house entranceSave this picture!© Luis GordoaThe house has four bedrooms, a double-height living room and an open plan kitchen that is integrated into the space. In the living area, a modern cast glass sphere chandelier hangs from the ceiling. By using few but carefully selected materials, we created delightful areas that met our clients’ expectationsSave this picture!© Luis Gordoa As in all the projects of SPACE, we followed sustainable design guidelines when designing House ALD. We used recycled content materials low in Voc levels and wood from certified forests. Furthermore, the lighting is almost entirely Led based.

After three tough road games against the traditional powerhouse schools University of Arkansas, University of Missouri, and University of Illinois, the TCU women found their stride against ISU in a comfortable 2-0 win.The Frogs are going to need to rely on their defensive stalwarts, Bobbi Clemmer and Lauren Sajewich, to help stifle a Maryland attack that has scored in three of its four games this season.Maryland sophomore forward Alex Anthony is off to an electric start in 2015, leading the Terps with three goals in four starts. She leads the team with ten shots on goal (SOG), making herself a nuisance to every back line Maryland has faced thus far.Not only will the TCU back line have Anthony to contend with, but also redshirt junior forward Gabby Galanti.A year removed from an ACL injury that caused her to miss a majority of her sophomore season, Galanti is eager to prove herself alongside Anthony, her strike partner. A breakout game against TCU would only help to solidify Galanti’s spot in Maryland’s starting 11.If the TCU strikers hope to get on the board early Friday night, they will need to find a way to break down senior defensive duo Shannon Collins and Kayla Shea. The anchors of a back line that has conceded only one goal in four games, Collins and Shea have already established the Maryland defensive unit as a force to be reckoned with.Kickoff for the game is at 7 p.m at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas.last_img read more

Couple Donates $50 Million to Caltech

first_imgPeople Couple Donates $50 Million to Caltech In one of the largest acts of philanthropy in Caltech’s history, Ron (MS ’62, PhD ’64) and Maxine Linde have pledged at least $50 million to the Institute. By WAYNE LEWIS Published on Thursday, March 5, 2015 | 3:50 pm Top of the News Ron (MS ’62, PhD ’64) and Maxine Linde. Photo Credit: Bob PazTheir gift, structured to provide Caltech with flexibility to address emerging priorities, creates an endowment without a specific permanent designation. In this way, the Lindes’ newest contribution, like many of the couple’s previous gifts to Caltech, is earmarked to advance promising initiatives in their early stages. Once those initiatives are well established and positioned to garner additional external support, the endowed funds can be redirected to “the next important project Caltech should be undertaking,” as Ron Linde describes it.“The Lindes’ exceptional generosity will have a far-reaching and enduring impact on Caltech,” says President Thomas F. Rosenbaum, holder of Caltech’s Sonja and William Davidow Presidential Chair and professor of physics. “They understand deeply the Institute’s fundamental values and appetite for bold research endeavors. The Lindes’ remarkable gift is an evocative endorsement of our community of scholars and the contributions they make to science, technology, and society, geared to the future.”The focus on tomorrow is a key element of the Lindes’ unusual brand of philanthropy, whose built-in flexibility is expressly aimed at empowering Caltech to adapt to the unknown. “Our philosophy is to allow for flexibility because you can’t know the future,” Ron Linde says, “and science is about exploring the unknown.”The couple’s connection to Caltech reaches back more than 50 years, to Ron Linde’s time as a graduate student who earned the Institute’s first doctorate in materials science. Maxine Linde, a mathematician, worked as a scientific programmer at the Caltech-managed Jet Propulsion Laboratory during the early days of the U.S. space program.Ron Linde was elected to the Institute’s Board of Trustees in 1989 and has involved himself deeply in Institute governance. Now a senior trustee and vice chair of Caltech’s board of trustees, he serves on eight committees and subcommittees of the board. The Lindes have provided substantial financial support to the Institute over the past 25 years, making several multimillion-dollar gifts.“Our giving is not just a matter of loyalty,” Ron Linde says. “We measure the success of our philanthropic investments by the impact achieved per dollar spent. Caltech’s long track record speaks for itself. A dollar invested in Caltech can provide unparalleled returns.”Adds Maxine Linde, “As informed investors, we see Caltech as the best opportunity we will ever encounter to have a significant, lasting, personal impact on the world.”Partners in life and in business, Ron and Maxine Linde are chairman and president, respectively, of The Ronald and Maxine Linde Foundation. Ron previously was founder, chairman, and CEO of Envirodyne Industries Inc., a company where Maxine served as general counsel and chief administrative officer.As philanthropists, the Lindes have supported a wide range of Institute priorities over the years, and the imprint of their generosity is evident across campus. One of their gifts helped establish the cross-divisional Ronald and Maxine Linde Center for Global Environmental Science and aided in refurbishing its campus home, the Linde + Robinson Laboratory. Another contribution helped create the interdisciplinary Ronald and Maxine Linde Institute of Economic and Management Sciences. A faculty chair the couple endowed has migrated across fields to meet Caltech’s needs as it has changed occupants over the years. The chair is currently held by Alexei Kitaev, the Institute’s Ronald and Maxine Linde Professor of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics and inaugural winner of Yuri Milner’s Fundamental Physics Prize. A challenge grant from the Lindes made possible the Ronald and Maxine Linde/Caltech Alumni Laboratories at the Institute’s Broad Center for Biological Sciences. Other Linde gifts have supported specific research programs.“Through their exceptional approach to philanthropy, Ron and Maxine help us to address our most fundamental need—to stimulate and support in perpetuity boldness and creativity in our faculty and students,” says Provost Edward M. Stolper, holder of the Carl and Shirley Larson Provostial Chair and William E. Leonhard Professor of Geology. “And it has paid off in helping to retain and recruit outstanding professors, expanding the educational horizons of our students, and enabling the Institute to move in new directions. We turn to the Lindes with needs and opportunities that are at the core of what distinguishes Caltech, yet are the most difficult for which to raise funds. They then dig in and help us craft solutions that address these needs and opportunities. I want to emphasize how rare are partners of this sort and how lucky we at Caltech are to count Ron and Maxine among our friends and supporters.”The Lindes’ latest and largest commitment was made in the hope that it would both advance key Institute priorities and motivate others to follow their lead.“In addition to the dollars we put in, we are confident of Caltech’s ability to leverage our investment to find further support down the line,” Ron Linde says. “This gift is not an end in itself. It’s more of a beginning.”Other Institute leaders agree that the Lindes’ vote of confidence may have a multiplier effect.“In their energetic engagement with the Institute, Ron and Maxine are an inspiration to the entire board and to me personally,” says David Lee (PhD ’74), chair of Caltech’s board of trustees. “They know this place so well, and see so clearly the ways in which their giving can do the most for Caltech. When leaders like the Lindes choose to expand upon their past support, others will take notice and be inspired to make their own commitments.”Because the principal of their gift will remain part of the Institute’s permanent endowment, generating annual payout to supply programmatic funding, the Lindes are creating a lasting legacy at Caltech. According to Ron Linde, that impact over the years to come is one attractive element of their contribution.“The most important impact is the impact we can’t even imagine yet,” he says. “It’s very exciting to help Caltech create the future, to provide support for things that are going to be happening centuries from now.”The Lindes also describe their historic contribution as a sign of their belief in the entire Caltech community and its continuing ability to create knowledge that changes the world.“Ultimately we’re betting on people—both on the people at Caltech today and on the future generations that Caltech will be able to attract,” says Maxine Linde.

It resulted from a strategic review by a special committee of the Huntington Hospital Board of Directors, led by Chair Jaynie Studenmund.“I am delighted to announce this first step toward creating an affiliation between Cedars-Sinai Health System and Huntington Hospital that will further strengthen the communities we serve,” said Studenmund. “After reviewing a variety of alternatives, it became clear to our board that connecting our trusted brand of care to Cedars-Sinai Health System is the right choice to secure our future, enabling us to continue to provide high-quality care to the community for years to come.”Studenmund continued, “Cedars-Sinai Health System is among the nation’s top hospitals across a variety of metrics and has demonstrated a commitment to build on the strengths of its affiliates to advance clinical quality and outcomes, provide outstanding patient care and engage with the communities it serves.
