AMF joins Strathclyde in offshore wind fund

first_imgSweden’s AMF is to invest in UK wind farms, committing to an offshore wind fund managed by the Green Investment Bank (GIB).The SEK550bn (€59.5bn) pension provider participated in the second close of the fund, which attracted £355m (€478m), bringing total fund assets to £818m.As IPE reported in June, the £15.7bn Strathclyde Pension Fund committed £50m to the second close.It is understood that the remaining £305m from the second close comes from AMF and a third, unnamed northern European investor. Shaun Kingsbury, chief executive at GIB and executive chairman of its fund management subsidiary, said he was delighted by the “calibre” of investors attracted to the offshore fund.He said Strathclyde and AMF were “leading the way” when it came to green infrastructure.The second close coincided with the acquisition of GIB’s 10% stake in the Gwynt y Môr wind farm in Liverpool Bay, increasing the number of wind farms held by the fund to three.Peder Hasselev, CIO at AMF, said the provider committed to the offshore wind fund as it proved a responsible investment, and good returns went “hand-in-hand”.Paul Rooney, councillor at Glasgow City Council and chair of the pension fund, noted that the scheme was following on from its involvement with other GIB projects with a “globally significant” investment in offshore wind.“We are confident it is one that will deliver not only sustainable and secure energy infrastructure for the future of our communities but a sustainable and secure future for our members who are saving for retirement,” he said.The offshore wind fund’s first close previously attracted commitments worth £463m from investors including UK local authority funds and a sovereign wealth fund, believed to be the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.Earlier this year, the UK government announced a “staged privatisation” of GIB, which would see a majority stake in the currently state-owned bank sold by 2020.last_img read more

Tyson Fury cleared over Wilder glove tampering claims

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Tyson Fury has been cleared following glove tampering allegation by one of Deontay Wilder’s team who accused the Gypsy King of wrongdoing.Fury dealt Wilder the first defeat of his professional career earlier this year as he stopped him in the seventh round in Las Vegas. But Wilder’s younger brother Marsellos took to social media saying Deontay had suffered injuries “no glove or fist was able to cause”.BT Sport released footage of Fury having his hands wrapped before the fight at the MGM Grand, but wasn’t enough to clear him.He has now been cleared by the World Boxing Council and the Nevada state Athletic Commission are unlikely to act.WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman has come out and told Sky Sports that any theory of Fury cheating would be dismissed.“It’s ridiculous. It’s difficult to understand,” he told Sky Sports. “I was present in both fights, I was in the dressing room, in both fights. Both Wilder and Fury dressing room.“One was in California, the other one was in Nevada. In both cases, there were at least three inspectors in each dressing room.“I was there before and after the fight. And I saw the hand wraps, I saw them with the gloves. I was in the ring when they came into the ring, and I was sitting right there during the fight.“At no moment, in either fight, I saw anything that would look suspicious whatsoever. After the fight, they take off the gloves, they are handed to the commission.”He went on to criticise those who want to take the shine off what he called a “huge victory”. “It’s very sad,” Sulaiman added. “To try and take away something from a huge victory, one of the greatest nights of the sport in the century, to try and put a blemish on that event, is so irresponsible and so stupid.“It should not be given any consideration.”—Tags: Deontay WilderGypsy KingMarsellosTyson Furylast_img read more
