Accountants take up top FTSE 100 jobs

first_img ACCOUNTANTS now hold senior roles at six out of 10 FTSE 100 companies in the UK, according to new research.A survey conducted by recruiter Marks Sattin found that 40 per cent of senior figures at the UK’s largest companies have an accounting or financial background.The number has more than doubled from the 1990s when only 14 per cent of chairmen and chief executives were qualified accountants.Tim Hedger, deputy managing director of Marks Sattin said: “Accountants hold strategic insight into a business because they have exposure to all of its parts. They are at an advantage for that reason.”Meanwhile, Marks Sattin found that of the 1,500 accountants it polled, all said career development, new challenges and interesting work were more important than money.Thirty per cent of accountants moving jobs said better career development was the main reason for change, while 23 per cent signalled new challenges as the motivation to switch jobs.Diversity, however, remains a key issue for the accountancy profession as the majority of senior roles continue to be held by white males.Ethnic minorities represent 30 per cent of the accountants surveyed by Marks Sattin. Similarly, only 9.1 per cent of women currently retain a senior role within a FTSE 100 company.

Harvey Jones | Monday, 16th March, 2020 | More on: VOD Image source: Getty Images center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Terrified by the FTSE 100 stock market crash? This simple tip will keep you sane Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. As I write this, the FTSE 100 is crashing again. Which isn’t exactly surprising, if you’ve been watching the news. Due to the stock market crash, it could plunge below 5,000 at any moment, a level that would have been unthinkable just two months ago, when it was riding high at more than 7,500.So what do you do when your portfolio has fallen by as much as a third? I’ll tell you what I’m doing. I’m looking the other way. There’s no way I want to log on to my online investment platform and check out the personal damage. Reading the financial pages is already painful enough.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I know this doesn’t sound heroic, but it isn’t daft. From an investment point of view, I would argue that turning your back during a stock market crash is a thoroughly sound way to behave.Look beyond the stock market crashInvesting in stocks and shares is a long-term game. I’m still 15 years from retirement and I don’t plan to draw any money from my stock or fund holdings in that time, if I can possibly avoid it. I plan to leave it invested, and let time and compound interest work their magic.I haven’t looked at my portfolio since the investors started to take the Covid-19 threat seriously, because I know I won’t like what I’m going to see. I would suggest many of you do the same.There’s no point surveying the damage during the current stock market crash, because it might lead you to do something silly. Like panicking and selling up, thereby crystallising what are still only paper losses.You need to get the balance rightMy advice would be different if you need to draw money from your portfolio in the next few months. That money shouldn’t have been in the stock market anyway, you should only invest funds you won’t need for at least five years, preferably longer, to guard against times like these.There’s another reason why I’m looking away. That’s because I think I have the balance of my savings broadly right. If I need short-term cash in a hurry, I have a healthy balance of funds sitting in an offset mortgage. I can simply dip into that. It’s a tracker, so the interest rate is falling.I have quite an aggressive portfolio, with most of my money in shares. Others, wisely, will balance their equities with cash, bonds, gold and property, which don’t always correlate with stock markets, and may have a lower risk profile. Right now, they’ll be patting themselves on the back, because they won’t have felt the full force of the FTSE 100’s plunge. That’s the joy of diversification.I’m logging on to my online platform for one reason, though. With share prices down a third, I think we are nearing the buying opportunity of a lifetime. While shares are likely to fall further, when the crisis is over, we’re likely to see an almighty rally.When that happens, I might finally take a sneak look at my portfolio again. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 24th May, 2020 After the recent stock market crash, investing £100 a month or any other amount in an ISA might seem like a risky proposition.However, now could be the perfect time to start saving for the future. Doing so could help increase your financial prospects and build a sizable financial nest egg.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Saving for the futureThe market crash of 2020 has caused significant losses for many investors. Nevertheless, the market’s performance has for years been characterised by periods of boom and bust.Yet over the long run, investing in the stock market has still proven to be a highly lucrative exercise.Indeed, since its inception in the mid-1980s, the FTSE 100 has produced total returns in excess of 8% per annum. There have been peaks and troughs along the way, but over the long run, patient ISA investors have been well-rewarded.The problem is, it’s quite challenging to pick the best time to buy the market.Investors who bought while the index has been enjoying strong returns in a boom period may have experienced high returns. However, other investors who bought during bear markets and downturns could have produced even higher returns.Investors who bought near the top of the market have had to weather protracted periods of lousy performance, but have generally seen a positive return over the long term.One of the best ways to overcome this problem may be to ‘pound cost average’ your ISA investments. Simply put, this means setting up a regular investment plan to buy a set amount of shares every month.Regular investing ISAInvesting £100, or any other amount, every month in an ISA could help you ride out the peaks and troughs. This will allow you to benefit from the market’s wealth-creating potential over the long run without having to worry about trying to time your investments.By setting a fixed investment amount every month, the plan will buy more of a particular investment when it falls in value and less when it rises. This approach could help improve your ISA returns over the long run.Most online stockbrokers now offer this service. You can invest £100 a month into the market through a selection of investment funds. A low-cost tracker fund may be the best option for this amount.Buying individual stocks and investment trusts could incur significant transaction charges, which may eat into your cash reserves. A market tracker fund would help you regularly invest in an ISA cost-effectively while achieving broad diversification at the click of a button.As such, by adopting a long-term focus and setting up a regular investment plan, you could dramatically improve your investment prospects. Such an approach would allow you to benefit from the market’s peaks and troughs without having to spend too much time and effort trying to time your investments.

Violence, racism and football

first_imgCleveland is a midwestern city of roughly 400,000 people. Not much that happens there makes national news. But even the New York Times covered the Nov. 14 brawl between members of the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the National Football League.With the Browns leading 21-7 and only eight seconds of play left, the game’s outcome was certain. Browns defensive end Myles Garrett tackled Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, bringing him down after a pass had already been thrown. Rudolph tugged on Garrett’s helmet and tried to deliver a knee to the groin. In retaliation, Garrett pulled Rudolph’s helmet off.While Rudolph’s teammates were restraining Garrett, the quarterback charged Garrett, who swung Rudolph’s helmet and hit him on the head. Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi shoved Rudolph. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey kicked Garrett in the head.Garrett has been widely attacked for using Rudolph’s helmet “as a weapon.” Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and Coach Freddie Kitchens immediately denounced Garrett’s behavior, but Kitchens later pointed out that Garrett “understands what he did” and was “embarrassed.” Garrett apologized “to Mason Rudolph, my teammates, our entire organization, our fans and the NFL” the very next day after the incident. (Yahoo Sports, Nov. 15)Pouncey’s comment defending his own conduct in the melee — that Garrett “could have killed” Rudolph — has become a common refrain. That was possible, according to specialists in sports medicine, but highly unlikely. In fact Rudolph did not sustain any injury from the hit to his head. The NFL suspended Garrett for the entire season, postseason and perhaps even extending into next season. Pouncey and Ogunjobi were also suspended for three games and one game, respectively.  Rudolph, who by many accounts instigated the fight, was not suspended or even ejected from the last few seconds of the game. Max Kellerman, a white cohost of the popular ESPN program, “First Take,” commented Nov. 15 that this was obviously unfair, stating that Rudolph should have gotten at least a one-game suspension.  Black ESPN commentators — most notably the Emmy-award-winning Michael Wilbon, co-host of “Pardon the Interruption” — along with USA Today echoed Kellerman’s views.  The players union is appealing all three suspensions.Few dare call out racismGarrett, Pouncey and Ogunjobi are Black. Rudolph is white. Yet few voices in the sports world, even those decrying the lack of fairness, dare to utter the word “racism.” The inconsistency in imposing penalties was somehow due to favoritism toward quarterbacks — or toward the Steelers. But whatever the motive, it’s hard to conceive that the players would not view the NFL’s actions as racism.Sports commentator Pete Smith wrote: “The lack of action against Mason Rudolph, the one who started everything that would transpire and escalated the situation, is troubling and now raises questions about race.” For merely suggesting that racism might be a factor in the disparity in punishment, Smith drew critical comments online. Others commended him. (Sports Illustrated, Nov. 15)This is not an isolated incident. Racism has permeated the NFL since its founding in 1920. While 70 percent of NFL players are Black, when it comes to “leadership” only five out of 32 quarterbacks and only two head coaches are Black. The Washington, D.C., and Kansas City team names are still racist slurs against Indigenous people. Colin Kaepernick has been barred for the last three years from playing for taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racist police brutality.Professional sports is a lucrative source of profits under the capitalist system of exploitation. That’s why the NFL mirrors all the evils of capitalist society, including sexism as well as racism. As Smith also points out, “While this [Nov. 14 fight] is an isolated incident, violence against women is an epidemic. Numerous players across the league are making millions of dollars playing every week while victims [of their sexist assaults] are subjected to reliving nightmares in their lives as stadiums full of people are cheering.”A pervasive culture of violenceCapitalist culture is also reflected in the overriding culture of violence in the NFL that the Browns-Steelers scuffle epitomizes. Winning a football game depends on defense as well as offense. That means physically tackling the opponent. Other than hockey, boxing and wrestling, few sports demand as much aggressive physical contact.The old adage, “It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game,” has never been true when capitalist team owners’ profits go up and down based on winning or losing. Winning is everything to them. When winning depends on aggressive behavior, doesn’t that foster a culture of violence? How else to explain the seemingly irrational flaring of tempers, which hurt the players involved, their team and their fans? If Myles Garrett can be chastised for endangering another player, what about the team owners, who demand players risk their health and safety every time they play? The longterm health consequences of repeated head trauma are well-documented. Denied decent health care, retired players suffer needlessly from lifelong injuries.  The multimillionaires and -billionaires who own the teams and ultimately “call the shots” tend to be reactionaries. Browns owners’ Jimmy and Dee Haslam are brother and sister-in-law and political supporters of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam — who was instrumental in defeating the union at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga. Art Modell, who owned the original Browns and moved the team to Baltimore, was a long-time Republican Party supporter. Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft, the billionaire owners of the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots, respectively, are proud Trump supporters.  Professional athletes, even the highest-paid, are workers under capitalism. They have a right to safe working conditions, including stress management. They have a right to a nondiscriminatory work environment. But under capitalism, these rights are hard to come by.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Nazarbayev urged to guarantee unimpeded access to information on polling day

first_img RSF_en to go further KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders wrote today to Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev asking him to take all necessary measures to ensure that both national and foreign journalists are able to cover Kazakhstan’s presidential election on 4 December with complete freedom and safety.Paris, 2 December 2005Dear Mr. President,Reporters Without Borders, an organisation that defends press freedom worldwide, deplores the arrest of two Ukrainian journalists who went to Kazakhstan to cover the 4 December presidential election. They have been detained since 1 December and could be sent back to Ukraine.Their arrest is the latest in an already disturbing series of press freedom violations in Kazakhstan. Our organisation has noted many restrictions on freedom of expression this year in the form of such recurring practices as the confiscation of copies of independent newspaper, the filtering or banning of opposition websites, and the improper use of the judicial system to silence dissent. We also deplore the complete lack of information about the real circumstances of the death in June of Batyrkhan Darimbet, the editor of the opposition weekly Azat.The independent press is subject to constant harassment by the authorities, especially since the start of the presidential campaign. Reporters Without Borders fears that the Kazakh press, like the foreign news media, will not have free access to information on polling day.This election may not be recognised as free and transparent if the Kazakh authorities prevent the presence of international observers and obstruct the work of national and foreign journalists.Reporters Without Borders therefore asks you to take all necessary measures to create the best possible conditions for the holding of a free and fair election, and to guarantee the freedom and safety of journalists on this decisive day.We trust you will give this matter your careful consideration.Robert MénardSecretary-General Kazakh reporter accuses police of attacking her News News December 2, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Nazarbayev urged to guarantee unimpeded access to information on polling day Regional newspaper editor harassed after investigating real estate scandal KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia Organisation Receive email alerts News February 5, 2021 Find out more As the Kazakh authorities continue to hold two Ukrainian journalists who went to cover the presidential election and were arrested on 1 December, Reporters Without Borders has asked President Nazarbayev to take all necessary measures to ensure that national and foreign journalists are able to cover the polling on 4 December freely and safely.

The cluster was especially thick in the southern Atlantic states, namely Florida and Georgia, and in metros known to be retirement hotspots.Overall, The Villages, Florida, had the top median credit score in the United States. Its median score of 807 was, in fact, the only one above 800. Nearby Sun Center, Florida, finished second on the list, with a median credit rating of 789.While two cities in Arizona (Sun City West and Green Valley) placed third and fourth, California saw seven towns in the top 25, more than any other state. Three cities in New York and Massachusetts also made the top 25.The median credit rating for cities in the 99th percentile was around 770.While California has the most cities in the 99th percentile (eight overall), few of the state’s metros are along the Pacific coast. The largest clusters of California cities with high median credit scores are more inland. Coastal cities in California tended towards the bottom third percentile.And while large clusters of Georgia proved to have high median scores, Georgia recorded the most metros—seven—in the bottom 1 percentile for credit scores. New Jersey saw five cities in the bottom 1 percentile and is home to the city with the country’s worst median credit score. Camden posted a median score of 541. The city, along with East St. Louis, Illinois, are the only two cities in the United States with median credit scores below 550.Among major cities, San Jose placed highest, but its placement (620th on the list) suggests that small and medium-sized cities are by far more likely to house residents with top-tier credit scores. That said, San Jose’s median score was 722. That’s about the median U.S. credit rating, judging by WalletHub’s figures. Altogether, 1,075 cities had median credit scores above 700.Detroit, at 552, was the major city with the lowest median rating. That’s a tie for third-worst overall, with Chester, Pennsylvania, and Harvey, Illinois. Fifty-four cities had median scores below 600; Detroit was the only major city in that category.
