In this update, WhatsApp is also working to introduce the ‘Archived Chats feature with a new banner that reads, “Move chats you want to keep muted here’ adding, ‘Chats with new messages won’t return to main chat list. This hints that the behaviour of archived chats function will change for all chats archived. For now, the tracker says that these new tweaks haven’t been enabled for users even on the latest beta.In 2020, will WhatsApp get the killer feature that every Indian is waiting for? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. WhatsApp is actively working on a ‘Vacation Mode’ feature to bring users the ability to keep archived chat in archive even when a new message arrives. Currently, WhatsApp unarchives chats when a new message comes in, and Vacation Mode looks to prevent that from happening. The latest WhatsApp for Android beta sees improvements to this Vacation Mode feature, and hints that WhatsApp is actively developing it, including UI tweaks to the Archived Chats section. The feature is still under development and hasn’t been enabled for public beta testing yet.The instant messaging platform has released the latest WhatsApp Beta for Android v2.20.206.2, and WhatsApp-watchers WABetaInfo dug into its code to see all the new features WhatsApp may be working on. The features tracker found WhatsApp is busy developing the Vacation Mode feature. This new addition, as mentioned, allows users to keep chats in the archive when new messages arrive. In the past beta updates, WhatsApp prevented muted archived chats to be automatically unarchived when new messages arrived, but this new beta release suggests that WhatsApp users need not mute chats to keep them in archive.- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgSwiss Pensionskasse are demonstrating an appetite for infrastructure assets as they seek to diversify their alternatives exposure.Speaking at the Institutional Retirement and Investor Summit in Vienna last week, Roger Mohr, chief financial officer at the CHF300m (€245m) pension fund for the Swiss air rescue service Rega, said the fund was seeking further diversification for its alternatives portfolio via infrastructure debt.“Infrastructure debt allows us to skim the illiquidity premium and for our fund it does not matter if 20% to 30% of the portfolio is less liquid,” he said.The Pensionskasse currently invests 16% of its assets in alternatives, with an increasing share of that being out to work in infrastructure and private equity. “Our strategic allocation is 19% but not all our capital calls have been invested yet,” Mohr said.When Swiss government bonds turned negative, new investments were made in “alternatives in the fixed income segment”.Mohr said: “Back then those were insurance-linked securities and catastrophe bonds, but those have become quite expensive already, especially when hedged in [Swiss francs].”For the CHF12bn ASGA Pensionskasse in Switzerland, infrastructure was also the way forward to further diversify the alternatives portfolio, said Sergio Bortolin, CEO.“But we are struggling to find new investments at the right time, so we are using proxy investments with higher liquidity to be able to take out the money when necessary,” he said.After a strategic review of the alternatives segment – which makes up around 17% of the portfolio – the pension fund began reducing its exposure to hedge funds, as the performance expectations hedged to Swiss francs were no longer being fulfilled.“We are also switching from a fund-of-funds construct to an individual fund to have more access and control over the around 300 hedge funds we are investing in,” Bortolin added.However, for investors like Pensionskassen in Germany – which are a completely different construct compared to the pension funds of the same name in Switzerland – investing in alternatives is much more difficult.Andreas Hilka, board member at the €7.9bn German Hoechst Pensionskasse, cited regulation as a limiting factor: “There are very strict rules for German Pensionskassen like stress tests and a requirement to be fully funded at all times. This means we cannot be invested economically correctly at all times.”Referring to credit risks in the portfolio, such as investment grade and high yield bonds, Hilka said: “Those have generated a lot of performance over the last [few] years but now we would like to reduce the credit risk. However, based on our risk specifications there are no risk-adjusted alternatives.”Charlotte Klinnert, CFO at the €750m Pensionskasse for the German Red Cross, said the cost of alternatives was a limiting factor.“Complexity is an issue which renders some alternative investments unaffordable, they simply are not worth the effort,” she said.In addition, the Pensionskasse had a low capacity for risk, Klinnert said. The core portfolio of bonds, equity and real estate was balanced to match the fund’s risk profile, meaning that “alternative investments like infrastructure are no option for us”.last_img read more

first_imgNorwegian energy giant Statoil will hold a general meeting on Tuesday, May 15, where its shareholders will vote on the proposal to change the company’s name, from Statoil ASA to Equinor ASA.The company on Monday said it expected to implement the name change from (and including) May 16, 2018. This also means that Tuesday, May 15, 2018, is expected to be the last day of trading on Oslo Børs under the ticker “STL”. From 16 May 2018 (inclusive), the Company’s shares are expected to trade on Oslo Børs under the new ticker “EQNR”.“The change of name and subsequent implementation and change of ticker on Oslo Børs is subject to the AGM’s approval of the name change and formal registration in the Norwegian register of business enterprises (Foretaksregisteret). Based on statements made in support of the name change by the company’s majority owner, the company expects the AGM to approve the proposal to change the company’s name to Equinor ASA,” Statoil said.Subject to the AGM’s approval of the name change and subsequent implementation, the new ticker “EQNR” is also expected to be implemented for the Company’s American Deposit Rights (ADRs) traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The exact date of change of ticker on NYSE will be announced separately, however, implementation of the new ticker on NYSE will take place on 17 May 2018 at the earliest.Statoil said the name Equinor was formed by combining “equi”, the starting point for words like equal, equality and equilibrium, and “nor” signalling a company proud of its Norwegian origin, and who wants to use this actively in its positioning.Providing rationale for the proposed name change, chair of the board in Statoil, Jon Erik Reinhardsen said in March: “The world is changing, and so is Statoil. The biggest transition our modern-day energy systems have ever seen is underway, and we aim to be at the forefront of this development. Our strategy remains firm. The name Equinor reflects ongoing changes and supports the always safe, high value and low carbon strategy we outlined last year,”last_img read more

first_imgBelgium defender Nicolas Lombaerts insists a failed medical was not behind the collapse of his proposed move to Sunderland. Lombaerts told www.sporza.be: “I’ve made the choice not to move to Sunderland. The story of the medical testing is not right.” Sunderland, as is their policy on transfers, have not commented on the situation, although sources close to the club have confirmed the breakdown in talks. Meanwhile, the Black Cats are hopeful of concluding an £8million swoop for Dynamo Kiev’s Holland international midfielder Jeremain Lens after he headed for Wearside on Wednesday. Lens, who watched his club’s 2-0 Ukrainian Super Cup defeat by Shakhtar Donetsk in Odessa on Tuesday evening, tweeted a photograph of himself about to board a plane on Wednesday morning. The Zenit St Petersburg player is understood to have been on Wearside on Tuesday, and rumours later began to circulate that the deal had been shelved because of an issue picked up by medics. However, the 30-year-old is adamant that it was his decision to pull the plug on a £5million transfer. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
