Slovakia’s second-pillar pension system faces another exodus

first_imgNearly 145,000 had monthly pensionable earnings of less than €1,000, while some 60% were aged 41 years or more.However, Richter expressed surprise that more than 4,000 people with no tax or assessment base had opted in, despite the government’s advising against it.The opt-outs have reduced the number of second-pillar members to around 1.4m.Meanwhile, the six second-pillar fund management companies will have to transfer €541.7m, out of accumulated assets of around €6.4bn at the end of the opt-out window, to the Social Insurance Agency (SIA), which runs Slovakia’s first pillar.The monies will be used to offset the SIA’s deficit.Miroslav Kotov, head of the investment department at Allianz-Slovenska DSS, said: “The opt-out window came as a government reaction to the levels of the first annuities offered in January 2015.”“The combined pensions from the first and second pillars were in most cases lower compared with the potential pension from only the first pillar. This was probably the main driver.”Kotov added that the clients who left were not persuaded otherwise by issues such as the first pillar’s requiring constant subsidies from the state budget, or Slovakia’s highly unfavourable demographic prospects.According to the European Commission’s 2015 Ageing Report, Slovakia’s economic old-age dependency ratio, the inactive population aged 65 and over as a percentage of 15 to 64-year-old employed workers, is projected to rise from 32% in 2015 to 93% by 2060.This is the highest ratio in the EU.Over this period, the population is projected to fall from 5.4m to 4.6m, and the working age population from 3.8m to 2.4m, while the share of over 65 year olds rises from 14.2% to 35.2%.The SIA itself actively promoted opt-outs.Its communications recommended that the second pillar was only beneficial for those who would accumulate at least 25 years of savings, and who earned more than 1.25 times the average wage.It advised the less well paid, those with irregular income and those aged 45 years and over to leave.The Association of Pension Funds Management Companies (ADSS), the trade body for the companies managing second-pillar funds, disputed some of the SIA materials, including the claim real average returns between early 2005 and 2015 were negative.Unlike Poland, where new membership of its reformed second pillar is now restricted, until the next window in 2016, to new labour market entrants, anyone under age 35 in Slovakia can sign up at any time.This includes former fund members, although they would have to start their savings from scratch.According to the National Bank of Slovakia, the sector’s regulator, second-pillar membership increased by more than 17,000 in 2014. Slovakia’s beleaguered second-pillar pension system has undergone yet another sizeable shrinkage following the latest reopening, the fourth since 2008, between 15 March and 15 June.According to labour minister Ján Richter, the number of people opting out totalled 158,310, while 19,288 opted in.This is significantly higher than the 90,000-odd who left in the previous reopening, in 2013.Of those leaving, 32% had not been paying in, for reasons such as unemployment, disability or working abroad.last_img read more

Joshua stops Kltischko in 11th-round to win world titles

first_imgBy Ian ChadbandLONDON,(Reuters)-Anthony Joshua delivered one of the great nights in British boxing annals by stopping Ukrainian,Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round to be crowned IBF, WBA and IBOWladimir Klitschko receives a count by the referee after being knocked down by Anthony Joshua(Action Images via Reuters / Peter Cziborra Livepic)world heavyweight champion in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.Britain’s unbeaten IBF title holder earned a sensational victory by knocking down the 41-year-old former champion twice in the 11th and penultimate round before the referee stepped in to save Klitschko from any more punishment.What was hailed as the biggest fight night ever staged in a British ring, watched by the largest crowd for a boxing show in Britain for 78 years, lived up to its billing.It was a thrilling contest which saw both combatants clamber off the canvas seemingly on the verge of defeat,and one which looks destined to be recalled as one of the great heavyweight title fights.Joshua survived a knockdown for the first time in his professional career in the sixth round and looked close to surrendering his unbeaten record until his late bombardment forced the stoppage.In a sensational fifth round, Joshua knocked down Klitschko only to end up hanging on desperately at the end of the round as the Ukrainian launched a remarkable comeback.The veteran had even looked the more likely winner as he defied a 14-year age gap and was outboxing Joshua in the latter stages until the Briton produced a blistering finish to take his unbeaten record to 19 straight stoppage wins.Both men had to dig deep and both looked close to exhaustion before the 27-year-old Joshua’s youth, fitness and sheer power took over in a penultimate round that sent the huge crowd into ecstasy as two barrages sent Klitschko down.“What can I say? 19-0, three-and-a-half years in the game. As I said, I’m not perfect but I’m trying,” Joshua told the cheering crowd from the ring.“As boxing states, you leave your ego at the door and you respect your opponent. So a massive shout out to Wladimir Klitschko.”“The best man won tonight and it’s a massive event for boxing,” responded Klitschko after his second defeat in succession at the hands of a British heavyweight,following the loss of his titles to Tyson Fury 17 months ago after an 11-year reign.“Two gentleman fought each other. Anthony was better today. It’s really sad I didn’t make it.”The fight attracted a gate that had not been matched for a British show since Len Harvey fought Jock McAvoy for the British light-heavyweight title at another London venue, White City, in 1939.The mutual praise between Joshua and Klitschko echoed the civilized and respectful way the two former Olympic champions had behaved in the build-up to the contest,but there was nothing civil about the brutal punishment they dished out to each other.After four rounds of feeling each other out, with Klitschko’s movement and Joshua’s power quite apparent, the crowd were not prepared for an astonishing fifth round.First, Joshua launched a blistering left hook and followed up with a flurry of punches that saw the Ukrainian drop to his knees and, when he rose groggily, take a standing count.Klitschko suddenly looked old and the end seemed nigh as Joshua roared in to finish the job,but that was when he found his champion’s spirit in his desperation, landing a big left of his own to leave Joshua in real peril.The Ukrainian continued in the sixth, setting up his opponent with the jab before a huge right cross sent Joshua down.He scrambled off his knees but it did not look as if he would see the eighth round, uncharted territory for the Briton who had won all his previous fights within seven.Yet after Klitschko had, remarkably, looked almost the younger of the two fighters in the stretch, Joshua demonstrated real heart to go with his power as he unleashed a right uppercut that signaled the final assault on the Ukrainian’s scrambled senses.last_img read more

NBA: Celtic’s Kemba Walker sends Shamet ‘back to Los Angeles’ with nasty crossover [VIDEO]

first_imgAnkle-breakers and crossovers are an almost nightly occurrence in the NBA.While they may not be rare, having them being done successfully to you is not fun.When it is an emphatic one like Kemba Walker’s dazzler on Landry Shamet earlier when the Boston Celtics took on the Los Angeles Lakers, it’s almost downright embarrassing.Walker, an outrageously talented ball-handler approached the Clippers’ half of the court and was immediately approached by Shamet.After dazing Shamet with a couple of dribbles and a cross, Kemba then sent Landry scuttling towards the basket with a step-back before draining the triple.The move elicited oohs and aahs from the  Boston crowd and cheers after he sank the trey.The Celtics eventually beat the Clippers 141-133 to improve to 38-16 as the LA side drop to 37-18.The clip was posted by bleacher report and has already been viewed over 600,000 times.last_img read more
