Gartmore in new blow as top manager steps down

first_img John Dunne Gartmore in new blow as top manager steps down Monday 8 November 2010 3:10 am Gartmore’s top European fund manager Roger Guy is to leave the firm, the company has announced – sending the share price tumbling.The decision comes after Guy’s co-manager Guillaume Rambourg resigned over an FSA investigation into his dealings.The news wiped 15 per cent off the company’s share price after the FTSE opened.Meanwhile chief executive Jeffrey Meyer said the process was designed to rebuild the troubled company as well as kickstart discussions with potential buyers.He said the company was “beginning to have discussions with other firms … to see whether a business combination is in the best interest of our clients and our shareholders.”Meyer added the firm has not yet had material discussions with potential buyers.“This is very much the beginning of the process for us,” he said.Gartmore, which also announced a £10m cost-cutting programme, added in a statement: “He (Roger Guy) has informed the Board that he wishes to retire from day-to-day fund management. Consequently,the Company has put in place a process to ensure an orderly handover of Roger’s responsibilities and will combine the European Large Cap and All-Cap teams into a single European Equities Team.”John Bennett will take over his duties the firm after a handover period the firm said. whatsapp Tags: NULLcenter_img Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

New Zealand’s SkyCity to launch first online casino with GiG

first_img New Zealand gaming and entertainment giant SkyCity Entertainment Group, is set to make its online casino debut later this year after partnering with Gaming Innovation Group (GiG).Under the terms of the deal, GiG will deliver a turnkey online casino solution including a technical platform, fully managed services, gaming content, front end development, CRM, compliance and marketing.SkyCity’s new online casino is set to go live in Q3 2019 and will operated under GiG’s Malta licence.Graeme Stephens, chief executive of SkyCity, said the move into online was significant for the group, which operates four of New Zealand’s six land-based casinos.“Growing and diversifying our earnings is a key component of our group strategic plan and developing an online presence to complement our existing land-based casinos in New Zealand will enable us to offer an enhanced gaming proposition for customers,” he said.“GiG is an exciting and innovative technology company with best-in-class teams, systems, platforms and products and importantly share our focus on responsible gaming and host responsibility.”“With this landmark deal, we are entering a completely new continent where we can build on our ambition as the global partner for strong brands in iGaming,” the company’s chief executive Robin Reed said.“We look forward to supporting SkyCity in its expansion into the online space, where our full suite of products and solutions all form part of a very competitive offering to its online customers.“New Zealand is preparing for the regulation of real money online casino gambling and we are there to support our partner further when it happens.”GiG does not expect the SkyCity deal to have a material impact on its revenues this year, but expects a significant contribution from 2020 onwards.SkyCity first revealed plans to enter the online gaming market in February this year, when it published its results for the first half of its 2018-19 financial year. It said at the time that the platform would be located offshore initially, while the New Zealand government made decisions on whether to launch a regulatory framework for the channel, something the operator said it “strongly supported”.However it seems unlikely that the government will move ahead with these plans. Last month it announced a series of reforms to revitalise the New Zealand horse racing industry, including a point of consumption tax for offshore operators and race field fees. It expressly ruled out introducing a licensing regime for horse racing and sports betting, which it said would infringe on the New Zealand Racing Board’s statutory monopoly.GiG already powers an online casino and sportsbook for one of the US’s most prominent gaming brands, Hard Rock Casino, which went live in New Jersey last year.Earlier this month, Nasdaq Stockholm-listed GiG cited the impact of new regulations in the Swedish market as the main reason behind a year-on-year decline in revenue in the first quarter. Revenue for the three months through to March 31, 2019, amounted to €32.4m (£27.8m/$36.2m), compared to €37.3m in the corresponding period last year.

In this occasion, I thought about a place for animals, plants and human beings in a scale closer to the environment of the rich sectional direction. Thus, keeping the large site as it is, I thought to create a various environment that is produced by manipulating a sense of distance from the flat area that comes in contact with the road to the forest located 25 meters away.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaSpecifically, by placing 3.5 meters cubes similar to a wooden bird’s house on the side just like a toy building block, we made a place that responds to a surrounding horizontal and vertical territory that connects the ground surface and the forest. Gradually advancing from the approach to the south side and enabled by sceneries that is cut out in fragments in the east and the west direction, linear space in about 30 meters unfolds as a sky pass, keeping a gradual sense of distance with the surrounding environment. Save this picture!AxonThe space is connected to the 10 meters above forest. On the other hand, the cube that is buried in the underground slope becomes a space that reacts with the surface environmental territory such as sunlight filtering through thick trees, humidity and temperature. The bird’s house that connected the ground surface and the forest is like a place of kaleidoscope that reflects various regularly changing things. It is a place of a node that creates an interactive environment with natural animals ant plants.

Overlooking the village of Casamaccioli, « A CASA VANELLA », is a guests house which is part of a natural landscape in the heart of Corsica, in font of three major summits, Monte Cinto, the Paglia Orba, and Cima a i Mori.Save this picture!Courtesy of Orma ArchitetturaThe program aimed at creating common spaces, a dining room, and chill-out areas, in extension of the main house, which welcomes the guests’ bedrooms. The bias was to detach from the house, to place themselves in the back of the plot of land against a retaining wall in front of the village and the mountains chain. The extension is in the background of the “Casone” (family house), which occupies the center of the plot. Our reflection was led by the concern to take root in a site without imposing a gesture, but with the will to highlight its specificities.Save this picture!Courtesy of Orma ArchitetturaIlluminated by the western light, A CASA VANELLA is in the middle of a unique and timeless landscape. Walls made of granite and schist tuck the plots composed by chestnuts. These majestic trees dazzle us throughout the seasons until they reveal their silhouettes during winter.Save this picture!Plan 1.100Save this picture!Section BB 1.100Like an inhabited retaining wall, the building frames the main components of the landscape. As a result, three bores are oriented to each one of the summits. The building becomes landscape; it becomes a place of contemplation, where the sun puts in echo space and summits. Every night of the year, the light of the sunset makes theses places unique.Save this picture!Courtesy of Orma ArchitetturaThrough this landscape in constant evolution, we have wanted to create a project proposing a duality inside/outside. A first look at the project makes you feel it has no opening; it appears like a thickness of granite. Then, as we go along, we discover that this wall is going to open itself, to fragment, to enable the view and let the light in, in a controlled and measured way.Save this picture!Courtesy of Orma ArchitetturaSave this picture!Courtesy of Orma ArchitetturaIn a different way, the project is playing with time through the use of materials like concrete and stone. Indeed, the meeting of these elements enables us to tell a story regarding this site, also remind us of another time and know-how. Concrete is used in its truest way forming posts and lintels. Stone is used to fill the empty spaces of the structure. Inside, the lime plasters integrate and hide the technical elements.Save this picture!Courtesy of Orma ArchitetturaThe architecture tends to integrate the project in order to make it disappear in a mineral mass, and lets exist the main building “u Casone”.

TCU narrowly walked away from Lubbock, but the Longhorns weren’t so lucky down in Austin.Texas suffered another late game catastrophe as their punter botched a punt in the last minute and a half of their 30-27 loss to Oklahoma State. Just like the game against the University of California at Berkeley, the Longhorns lost due to a special teams error in the last seconds of the game.Andrew Dawson, a junior who attends Texas, said that his team will walk away with a victory even though the Longhorns have lost two straight games and are 1-3 to start the season.“There’s no denying the fact that we had a rough start to the season, but we have a new offensive identity,” Dawson said. “Heard is a stud and he should get around 600 yards of total offense in this game. The University of Texas [will win] by 20. Wait, no, 50.”According to the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Texas’ total offense ranks 111 while their total defense ranks 114 out of 127 of Football Bowl Subdivision teams.First year political science major at TCU Sam Roach said that TCU will walk away victorious.“I think TCU is going to win just because we have an amazing quarterback and great offense,” Roach said. “Our defense is lagging a little bit but I don’t think it’s enough for UT to pull through.”TCU’s air raid offense is ranked second. The Horned Frogs rank in the top 100 in total defense at 81st, according to stats from the NCAA.TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson said that the Longhorns can’t be taken lightly despite their misfortunes the past two weeks.“Texas is a very athletic team,” Patterson said. “They’re probably going to be the most athletic team we will have faced defensively, and they always have skill players on offense. We’ve got a lot of work to do.”Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. on Saturday Oct. 3 at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
