Two property company’s websites investigated by advertising watchdog

first_imgHow creative can an agent get about its company’s history?That question has been put under the spotlight after an agent in North London was reported this week to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for claiming on its property website that it has been in business for a decade even though it was not incorporated until October 2015, Companies House records show.Huddletons, which operates out of an office above a restaurant in Camden and one director, appears to have changed its website to reflect the ASA request to amend its claim, now stating the more subtle point that it “has developed organically over the past decade from concept through to where it currently stands as a business”.Huddleton is not listed on either the NAEA or ARLA websites as a member but it is signed up to the Property Redress Scheme.But the company is not the only one investigated this week by the ASA over claims made on its website.Builder Crest Nicholson had an advert for one of its developments challenged by a complainant, who said an image was misleading because it showed a detached property when, on further investigation, it turned out to be semi-detached.“The advertiser confirmed that they had removed the image from the listing,” says the ASA.”Read about more recent investigations by the ASA.Huddleton advertising standards authority ASA camden Crest Nicholson January 25, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

New bakery course over-subscribed

first_imgThe bakery option on a new advanced diploma in Artisan Food Production is over-subscribed as people look to retrain and set up their own businesses.The School of Artisan Food in Nottinghamshire is now accepting applications for the two-year full-time advanced diploma, which begins in September, with students able to specialise in baking cheese-making, butchery or brewing. “We can take a maximum of 25 students each year and we already have nine people who have chosen to specialise in baking. We’re looking at reworking the timetable to provide a few extra places,” said marketing and admissions officer Joe Piliero. “The feedback we’re getting from applicants is that they want to set up their own deli or café, making fresh bread each day, or their own artisan bakery.”The bakery side of the course will be headed by Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, currently bakery director at Judges Bakery in Hastings, with practical classes looking at production techniques, as well as fundamental bakery science and microbiology.last_img read more

Dutch regulator criticises optimism of ABP’s recovery plan

first_imgDe Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), the Dutch pensions regulator, has criticised ABP’s recovery plan for assuming that the €356bn scheme’s equity holdings will produce a 7% annual return in the coming years. According to a memorandum prepared by ABP’s board, the watchdog also pointed out that the civil servant scheme’s premium would contribute little to its recovery.Within the memo, ABP’s board states that the margin for a premium reduction would be minimal next year, due to “several setbacks”.The reduction will be needed to finance an increase in salaries for government workers. ABP’s memo also reveals that the regulator, despite approving the pension fund’s recovery plan last summer, warned the scheme that the gap between its actual funding and required funding was the largest of all the 150 schemes with recovery plans.The regulator pointed out that ABP had estimated it would need more than eight years to increase its coverage ratio from 97.1% to the required 128%.The average recovery target of the other schemes is 6.5 years.DNB chastised ABP for factoring in the maximum estimates allowed for equities (7%) and real estate (6%) and noted that the contribution of ABP’s premium to its projected recovery was the lowest of all surveyed schemes.ABP’s ‘premium funding’ – which reflects the extent to which contributions drive new accrual – has dropped from 80% to approximately 67% as a consequence of the scheme’s switch from the consumer index to the salary index for inflation compensation, as well as its abolishment of premium levies.Within the memo, the pension fund conceded that its contribution was low relative to its pensions accrual.ABP’s board also lamented that last summer’s reduction of the ultimate forward rate – part of the discount mechanism for liabilities – had cut funding immediately by 1.9 percentage points. Based on current interest rates, it added, funding is expected fall by another 2.8 percentage points over the next 10 years.ABP’s board said the low-interest-rate environment stood to prolong its recovery period by nearly six years and would require it to increase its contribution by 0.8%.last_img read more
