It came as market volatility caused by the Covid-19 outbreak helped drive up trading volumes, while the company’s client base jumped 50 per cent to 201,500.center_img Show Comments ▼ James Warrington “I am excited by the outstanding performance we delivered in the first quarter as we enter the second year of our three-year growth strategy,” said chief executive June Felix. IG and rivals such as Plus500 and CMC Markets have cashed in on volatility in financial markets as a global sell-off at the outbreak of coronavirus and subsequent recovery have driven up trading volumes. “This was a great start to the year, and although there was some moderation from the exceptional performance in the fourth quarter, our first quarter results demonstrate IG’s continued strength across the core markets, while also highlighting the growth potential in the significant opportunities.” whatsapp Shares in IG Group rose almost seven per cent this morning after the trading platform reported a surge in first-quarter revenue due to high levels of activity during the coronavirus crisis. IG reported revenue of £209m in the three months to the end of August, up 62 per cent on the same period last year.

Response to Baekdu Eruption Demanded

first_img News SHARE By Im Jeong Jin – 2011.01.25 6:24pm The North Korean authorities recently instructed the Party to establish a policy to cope with a possible eruption of Mt. Baekdu. A source from North Hamkyung Province reported the news today, saying, “Recently, an order was handed down in the name of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Party ordering the setting up of responses to an eruption of Mt. Baekdu,” adding, “Accordingly, provincial committees of the Party in provinces at risk of damage in a volcanic eruption held a joint meeting to discuss measures.” The participating cadres reportedly came from provincial and municipal committees of the Party and administrative, local security departments and military corps within Yangkang and North Hamkyung Provinces. After the joint meeting, cadres apparently held their own meetings in each province or city to deliver the order from Pyongyang and discuss specific response measures. According to the source, at one cadres meeting held on the 10th, an official noted, “The General (Kim Jong Il) said people in some regions of Yangkang and North Hamkyung Provinces may be feeling anxiety over a volcanic eruption of Mt. Baekdu, and instructed us to consider counter-measures quickly.” The official apparently said, “The General emphasized that we should make complete counter-measures for local residents within a 60 km radius,” and added, “The General worries about people’s lives and property.” The source explained that specific instructions have also been delivered to those lower down, especially regarding oversight of No. 1 Works; works of art related to Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, predominantly their portraits. The source said, “In the meeting, they said if an eruption occurs, people must gather the No. 1 Works and take shelter, quickly and in cooperation with military bases in the area,” and, “The provincial authorities must check transport facilities within each jurisdiction well, and order people to prepare emergency medicines and other items.” Nevertheless, the public are reportedly quite apathetic towards the authorities’ moves.The source said, “People say, ‘There is no special way but to sit and die,’ or, ‘They can’t even rescue residents on normal days; are they gonna do this?” or “We’d better get across the Tuman River or something.” News NewsEconomy Response to Baekdu Eruption Demanded AvatarIm Jeong Jin center_img Facebook Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once againlast_img read more

Mackenzie opens door to better client conversations

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news Keywords RetirementCompanies Mackenzie Financial Corp. Mackenzie Financial Corp. Monday introduced Live It (talkliveit.com), a new framework for investment conversations based on the six concerns that matter most to investors. The message of Live It reflects Canadians aspirations to live a fulfilling life today, and through a strong investment plan, into the future. IE Staff Share this article and your comments with peers on social mediacenter_img New CI fund to invest in “longevity economy” JustWealth enters group benefits space “Through Live It, we want to help advisors shape conversations with their clients so that their key investment concerns – and their top aspirations – are addressed, said Jeff Carney, president and CEO of Mackenzie Investments. The Live It framework was built after extensive conversations and research with investors and advisors to find out what issues were on their minds. Live It puts a spotlight on those areas through an acronym that takes the first letter from each major financial challenge facing investors today, and in the future: Longevity, Income, Volatility, Estate, Inflation and Taxes. Mackenzie says the program is an engaging way for advisors to lead constructive conversations with clients about retirement and investing and to focus the discussion on the right solutions to help clients retire in a strong financial position. A poll conducted by Leger on behalf of Mackenzie Investments revealed key topics for investors. Their answers told the Live It story: 72 per cent are concerned about not having set aside enough money to last through their retirement; 67 per cent feel GIC rates are too low to generate the income they’ll need; 52 per cent feel volatility has made their investment goals less attainable; 47 per cent have Estate as a part of their financial plan; 72 per cent are worried about the long-term impact of inflation; and 90 per cent underestimate the amount of tax they pay. “Using the Live It framework, advisors can engage clients in conversations that go to the core of their financial concerns and aspirations,” said Su McVey, senior vice president, marketing. “That engagement will reveal the unique insights needed to build truly customized plans with the most appropriate solutions that work now and into the future.” Mackenzie is supporting Live It conversations with a materials at talkliveit.com that includes videos and white papers, guidance from the Mackenzie tax and estate planning team, product ideas, video insights from Mackenzie’s portfolio managers and technical white papers on innovative investment strategies. The Mackenzie Live It program will provide content and tools for investors as well as advisor specific resources. An online survey of 959 Canadians was conducted for Mackenzie between March 17 and March 20. A probability sample of the same size would yield a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 per cent, 19 times out of 20. RBC GAM updates retirement portfolioslast_img read more

PeaceHealth Southwest offers award-winning weight-loss program

first_imgHealth Management Resources course named best of 2020 by U.S. News and World Report fifth year in a row VANCOUVER — U.S. News and World Report recently ranked the Health Management Resources (HMR) weight-loss program, which is offered at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, as the No. 1 best, fast weight-loss diet and program of 2020.This is the fifth year in a row the HMR program has been awarded the recognition. At their Salmon Creek facility, PeaceHealth hosts a dietitian-led course using the HMR curriculum and meal plan in their class known as Weight Loss for Life (WLL). Students meet for their group class of Weight Loss for Life at PeaceHealth Southwest’s Salmon Creek facility. Photo by Jacob GrannemanStudents meet for their group class of Weight Loss for Life at PeaceHealth Southwest’s Salmon Creek facility. Photo by Jacob Granneman “We have a minimum amount of food that people are required to eat to be medically safe and nutritionally safe,” said Ali Jack, a health educator and dietitian who teaches WLL. “But then you can add as many HMR foods to that to be full. So that’s what’s different about our program. Most people who are trying to lose weight, they just eat less, and that’s not really sustainable because when you’re hungry, it’s really hard to stick to your plan.”Many students of the course at Peacehealth came in with uncontrolled diabetes and physical limitations. Through the two phases of the program, students first rethink their serving sizes and what they eat; transitioning to the HMR meals and shakes. “The first few days are kind of hard because you’re used to eating much more than you’re eating on your first few days,” said Wendy Gebo, a WLL student. “I used to be diabetic. I’m no longer diabetic. I’m off all my blood pressure medications. I’m basically healthy now. Healthier than I’ve been probably 30 years.”blankPeaceHealth Southwest Health Educator and Dietitian Ali Jack. Photo by Jacob GrannemanThis first phase is often where many lose weight quickly and see rapid improvement through the meal plan, increased exercise and a higher intake of fruits and vegetables. “Understanding the science behind weight loss and the metabolic changes of my body and learning, like how to support my body at this size. I mean, that’s the key,” said WLL student Cindy Burlingame. “Whereas like other programs, I may have been successful, initially losing weight, but I don’t think there’s that scientific support that we get from the nutritionists here.”Unlike other diets, the HMR program at PeaceHealth is not centered around eating less and less, Jack explained. Instead, the students are taught to eat the correct foods, ones low in fat and high in protein as well as fiber, and then eat only those foods until full. “The thing that made me the happiest was when they were talking about more is better,” said WLL student Angie Brown. “So I can eat, eat, eat. So, after the introductory session, I was sold. I signed up that night, and the rest, as they say, is history.”Many students reported finding this helpful, as it forced them to eat healthier but did not cause them to be hungry all the time. All meals and shakes used in the program are vacuum sealed and ready to cook and eat. The strategy behind this, Jack said, is to take the often problematic decision making out of the equation for students. “I don’t think I would have been as successful if I didn’t have that accountability,” said WLL student Andrew Colver. “It’s something I’m thinking about continuing for the next little bit so I can develop those habits. They really get you on the track in terms of making all those decisions for you in terms of food. Just go to the meetings and eat the food and I noticed the weight was coming off.”The second phase of the class deals with longevity and maintaining healthy practices to maintain your goal weight. Each student works with health coaches and their peers to hold each other accountable to this endeavour.  Students said almost across the board that the group setting and subsequent accountability was a large factor for them. When in class, students weigh themselves and write their numbers on the class board. Gebo has lost 131 pounds, Burlingame has lost 114 pounds, Brown has lost 109, and Colver has lost 75 pounds. Gebo and Colver both removed diabetes from their diagnoses as a result of the HMR WLL class. For more information on the course, visit www.peacehealth.org. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : SWCA presents 2019 Construction Champions Award Next : County invests local behavioral health funding to develop supportive housingAdvertisementThis is placeholder text PeaceHealth Southwest offers award-winning weight-loss programPosted by Jacob GrannemanDate: Tuesday, February 11, 2020in: Healthshare 0 last_img read more

DT puts T-Online up for sale — report

It’s possible that the operator could keep the part of the business that offers email accounts.Axel Springer owns Bild.de — the website of the country’s leading tabloid newspaper — so bidding for T-Online could draw the attention of the country’s antitrust authorities.
