The €5bn pension fund for Dutch social security agency UWV is facing a rights discount at year-end, following the impact of the continued deterioration of interest rates on its liabilities.The scheme’s coverage ratio – at July-end still 103.7% – must be at least 104.5% at the end of August, to avoid a rights cut for its 52,000 participants.Due to the effect of the three-month average of the interest rates on its discount rate, its funding is likely to drop further this month.If conditions remain unchanged, the average coverage ratio of Dutch schemes would to drop 3 percentage points by August-end, Dennis van Ek, actuary at pensions advisor Mercer estimated. He added that the expected funding decrease would be less for a pension fund with predominantly older participants, but bigger for ‘young’ pension funds.The probable rights cut is a consequence of the UWV scheme’s short-term recovery plan expiring at the end of this month.Pensioenfonds UWV pointed out that the negative effect of falling interest rates on its liabilities exceeded the positive impact on its investment portfolio, consisting largely of government bonds.Since the financial crisis, the pension fund claimed to have been following a “solid investment strategy, matching the risk appetite of both participants and its board”.Thanks to this defensive approach – with 71% of its assets invested in fixed income and less than 20% in equity – the scheme was able avoid rights cuts so far, it said.It had already increased the contribution from 19.1% to 20% of salary, and also reduced the annual pensions accrual from 2.1% to 1.67%.The UWV scheme, which reported a 1.5% loss over 2013, further made clear that it was unable to suddenly change its asset allocation, as it was restricted due to the conditions of its recovery plan.The three-year recovery plan was based on the assumption of an annual return on investments of 4.9%.The pension fund has set up a new website dedicated to keeping its participants posted of the development of its coverage ratio and the expected rights discount. read more

Press Association Days Hotel, the 3-1 joint-favourite, boxed on for pressure to fill the runner-up spot, while the other joint-favourite, Baily Green, was found to be distressed post-race. The talented Twinlight got last season off to a flying start by winning the Poplar Square Chase at Naas and the Hilly Way at Cork, but his form tailed off after the turn of the year. Mullins, completing a big-race treble on the card and saddling his fourth winner of the afternoon after also striking at Limerick, said: “That was a nice surprise as I thought the ground might be a bit too dry. Ruby gave him a super ride and kept filling him up with air. He jumped great. “The Hilly Way at Cork looks the next place. We’ll run in whatever we can over two miles as that’s his optimum trip.” The Mullins-Walsh combination had to make do with minor honours in the Crystalski.ie EBF Beginners Chase as Blood Cotil filled the runner-up spot behind Enda Bolger’s Gilgamboa. The latter won the valuable Boylesports.com Hurdle at Leopardstown in January, before finishing down the field in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham. Making his fencing debut in the hands of Mark Walsh, Gilgamboa (5-4 favourite) jumped neatly and tracked the pacesetting Blood Cotil into the straight. Mullins’ charge got in tight to the second-last and again at the final obstacle, handing the initiative to the market leader, who pulled a length and a half clear at the line. Frank Berry, racing manager for winning owner JP McManus, said: “You couldn’t ask for much better. He has been schooling well and it’s nice to get that out of the way. “The first two jumped well and he was quick over his fences. He loves that ground, it’s not too soft. He’d handle most ground, but maybe not heavy. “We’ll try and find a winners-of-one race for him. A step up in trip wouldn’t bother him and we’ll see what’s around in the next few weeks.” Sent off at 100-30 for his seasonal debut, Twinlight, who has a preference for going right-handed, was kept wide by Walsh on this left-handed track and did jump to his right on a number of occasions during the two-mile contest. However, he travelled powerfully into the straight and although he was untidy two fences from the finish, he was much better at the last and pulled seven and a half lengths clear on the level to secure the Grade Two prize. Twinlight made a most impressive seasonal reappearance in the Ladbrokes Ireland Fortria Chase at Navan for Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh. read more
