Mark Rylance Will Lead Nice Fish in the West End

first_imgMark Rylance and Jim Lichtscheidl in ‘Nice Fish'(Photo: Teddy Wolff) After talk that Mark Rylance would return to Broadway this fall in Farinelli and the King, comes the news that he instead will headline Nice Fish in the West End. The three-time Tony and Oscar winner co-wrote the play with poet Louis Jenkins, and the Daily Mail reports that the production is set to open in London for a three-month run in mid-November. It will be helmed by Rylance’s wife, Claire van Kampen, who also hopes to bring over his co-star, Jim Lichtscheidl.Rylance won the Tony for Twelfth Night, Jerusalem and Boeing-Boeing and was nominated for Richard III (which played in rep with Twelfth Night); he has also appeared on the Great White Way in La Bete. He received the Oscar for Bridge of Spies and an Emmy nod for his recent work in the screen adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize-winning novel Wolf Hall.Rylance conceived and wrote Nice Fish with Jenkins; they originally adapted the play for Minneapolis’ Guthrie Theater from Jenkins’ book about ice fishing in Minnesota. A new American Repertory Theater production was staged by van Kampen last year, followed by a recent run at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.Nice Fish takes place on a lake in frozen Minnesota where the ice is beginning to creak and groan. It’s the end of the fishing season, and two men are out on the ice one last time, angling for answers to life’s larger questions.In the meantime, Broadway will continue to angle for Rylance’s return.

Hunt talks reg relief, NCUSIF white paper in new video

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NAFCU’s Carrie Hunt discusses NCUA’s recently released white paper on possible reforms for the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund and regulatory relief measures NAFCU is seeking for credit unions in a new video for members published yesterday.Hunt, NAFCU’s senior vice president of government affairs and general counsel, begins with a look at the agency’s white paper – which association President and CEO Dan Berger questioned in a letter to NCUA this week – and how the legislative changes contemplated for the NCUSIF could impact credit unions.“NAFCU has long maintained that NCUA needs to be transparent with its plans, in particular those relative to risk, so credit unions can have an idea of the direction the agency is going and can really focus on how we can reduce regulatory burden,” Hunt says. She says the proposals in NCUA’s white paper would do nothing to reduce regulatory burden but “could result in an environment that constricts the ability of credit unions to do business even further.” continue reading »last_img read more

ABN Amro switches to CDC in €700m deal

first_imgDutch bank ABN Amro has struck an agreement with unions to transform its current €13.6bn defined benefit pension plan into a collective defined contribution (CDC) arrangement, as part of its new collective labour agreement (CAO). The change will take effect as soon as the unions have received their members’ approval and will affect both existing and new pension rights. Rabobank opted for a similar route for its pension arrangements, whereas banc-assurer ING chose to set up two new pension funds. Under the terms of the new CAO, ABN Amro will no longer have to address any funding shortfalls in the scheme. As compensation, the employer agreed to contribute €500m in a one-off payment.In addition, the pension fund would receive €200m in order to pay for the planned indexation in arrears without having to put pressure on its coverage ratio, which was 122% at February-end. The CAO negotiations have taken more time the initially expected. More than a year ago, ABN Amro consulted the unions about its plans for a new pension scheme.The new arrangements were scheduled to come into force on 1 January 2014, affecting the pension fund’s almost 85,000 participants in total.last_img read more

UK roundup: Institute for Fiscal Studies, Aegon UK, PIC

first_imgAuto-enrolment has been most successful with respect to younger employees, aged 22-29, and relatively low earners, according to the IFS.It has also had a positive impact in terms of boosting membership of workplace pensions among those not directly targeted by the policy.Kate Smith, head of pensions at Aegon UK, said there were “some really positive signs auto-enrolment is working” but that contribution rates remained a concern, as even the total of 8% of earnings that the minimum contribution will rise to by April 2019 is “unlikely to be enough for an adequate income for retirement”.The auto-enrolment policy also fails to capture workers in increasingly common “non-standard working arrangments”, she said, so care needs to be taken to incentivise these workers to save for retirement. In other news, Pension Insurance Corporation has priced an issuance of £250m of subordinated debt with an annual coupon of 8% and a maturity of 10 years.It will use the proceeds to meet expected demand from UK defined benefit pension funds for wholesale insurance annuity products.CFO Rob Sewell said: “We have had a very successful second half and expect continued significant interest from pension funds for bulk annuities. “We have taken advantage of a window of market opportunity to bolster our considerable financial resources to be able to meet that increased demand.” Research published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) has found that the automatic-enrolment of employees into workplace pension schemes increased pension saving by £2.5bn (€2.9bn) per year to April 2015 as a result of a large increase in pension membership.The IFS said auto-enrolment increased pension participation among those eligible by 37 percentage points, so that, by April 2015, 88% of these private sector employees were members of a workplace pension scheme.Before the advent of auto-enrolment, the figure was around half, and membership had been falling, according to the research institution.  The research was based on data from April 2011 to April 2015.last_img read more

Rodgers not concerned by club debt

first_img On Monday the publication of the Reds’ annual accounts revealed a loss of £40.5million with overall debt rising by £21.8million to £87.2million But Rodgers denied that would impact on his spending, stressing owners Fenway Sports Group had already pledged their full support for his restructuring plans. “If you look where the club was at four years ago and where it is now it is a different place,” said the Liverpool boss, who has spent part of his first year in charge cutting the wage bill at Anfield by offloading high-earning but low-performing players. He added: “Of course there is still debt there but I think next year’s results will show further improvement on that. “In terms of me building the squad I’ve already got the assurances it won’t affect anything. “I think you have to give massive credit to the board and FSG because they took on an astronomical amount of debt – almost £400million – so where it is at now in their short period of time here is a huge credit to them while still supporting the investment of the team. “They have made every promise and every commitment to me that every single penny they have will go into generating the squad and making it better. “We won’t be able to do it like some clubs and throw out masses each year but that is something as a club we are looking to standardise here while still growing the club and bringing in quality players and that won’t stop in the summer.” Press Associationcenter_img Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists an increase in the club’s debt levels will not impact on his ability to strengthen the squad this summer.last_img read more
