“ESG” and external governance reviews also came out as low priorities in the ranking, according to the survey report, which did not define ESG beyond “environmental, social, and corporate governance”.It said some participants were not sure what ESG meant.“This is despite it receiving media attention and initiatives such as the Association of Member Nominated Trustees’ Red Line Voting to support trustees in being investors who are well-versed in ESG,” it noted.A recent BNP Paribas Securities Services survey of 461 asset owners and asset managers found that a fifth of respondents did not incorporate ESG, with the main reason being an inability to define it.In the Winmark/Sackers survey, regular board meetings came out as the most important governance element, with a score of 4.9. However, there was little variation in the scores for the top 10 elements (see graphic). For example, ‘clear and transparent communication’ came in as the 10th most important ranking with a score of 4.6.The survey found that trustees were spending 65% more time on governance compared with three years ago, although the majority of boards spent less than 20% of their time on governance.Sackers said that governance was “a balancing act” and that prioritising of tasks was a key part of good governance.“Prioritising is part of good governance, and so is having an understanding of what will add value and where efforts are most likely to be rewarded,” it added. “While the aspects of governance that were considered to be of least importance all have value, it is reasuring that the main priorities are understood.”The report is available to download from Sackers’ website. Board diversity, ESG investing, and external reviews are relatively low governance priorities for pension scheme trustees and managers, according to a report.It was produced by Winmark, which runs professional member networks to facilitate peer learning, and Sackers, a law firm. It was based on a survey of 84 pension schemes – trustees and pension managers – and 13 in-depth interviews with chairs of trustee boards and other pensions experts.Board diversity in terms of gender, ethnicity and age came last out of a list of 25 governance elements that survey participants were asked to rank for importance, on a scale of 1-5. The report said this did not mean trustees think diversity was not important. “In their defence, many survey participants do recognise the need for diversity of skills and perspectives,” it said. “They just do not see diversity in trustees’ individual characteristics such as gender, age, or ethnicity as on a par with certain other aspects of governance.“Also, difficulties recruiting trustees mean that boards often do not have many candidates.”The UK’s pensions trade body has launched a ‘Breaking the Mirror Image’ campaign to try to encourage greater diversity on trustee boards and pension executive boards. It also put diversity at the heart of its annual investment conference in March. #*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#

From about 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, August 21 the “Great American Solar Eclipse” will roll across the Great Northwest to Appalachia, then off the coast of South Carolina.Hopkinsville, Kentucky could be the closest location for “Totality” to the Hoosier state. The town is hosting a three day festival for enthusiasts. Complete information and an official countdown is online at eclipseville.com/.Officials from the Indiana Department a of Transportation say about 200 million people live within the path of “Totality.” Congestion is expected before and after August 21 on U.S. 41, U.S. 231 and I-69. Interstate 65 is also expected to experience increased volume.Eclipse enthusiast Dan McGlaun says the rare event is uniquely American. The last total eclipse in the United States occurred on Feb. 26, 1979. The last total eclipse that crossed the entire continent occurred on June 8, 1918 and the last time a total solar eclipse occurred exclusively in the U.S. was in 1778. McGlaun has a webpage dedicated to the event here eclipse2017.org/ .
Sweden’s David Lingmerth was the surprise leader of the £6.1million Players Championship when play was suspended due to darkness during the third round at Sawgrass. Press Association At 12 under par he was two ahead of Stenson – who had played 16 holes – and the final pairing of Garcia and Woods, who were on the 15th. The clubhouse target had been set at nine under several hours earlier by veteran Jeff Maggert, the 49-year-old completing a 66 just before the initial stoppage, with England’s David Lynn a shot behind after a second consecutive 68. It had been hoped that the pairing of Garcia and Woods would provide some fireworks on the course, but the biggest talking point of the day looked to have cemented the somewhat cool relationship between the pair. After a regulation par at the first to maintain his one-shot overnight lead, Garcia had found the middle of the second fairway while Woods pulled his tee shot into the trees. Garcia then sliced his second shot wildly into trouble and instantly looked round accusingly as if he had been disturbed by some noise from the gallery. And speaking during the weather delay, the Spaniard told NBC: “Well, obviously Tiger was on the left and it was my shot to hit. He moved all of the crowd that he needed to move, I waited for that. “I wouldn’t say that he didn’t see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit and right as I was in the top of the backswing, I think he must have pulled like a five-wood or a three-wood and obviously everybody started screaming. So that didn’t help very much. But it was unfortunate because – I mean I might have hit it there if nothing happens, you never know – but if I hit a good shot there and maybe make birdie, it gets my day started in a bit of a different way.” Garcia ended up making a bogey six to a birdie four from Woods on the second, but the world number one’s lead proved brief as he three-putted the par-three third. Woods then had to scramble to save par on the fourth and sixth and failed to find any further birdies as he struggled to adapt to the speed of the greens. Told about Garcia’s comments, Woods told reporters it was “not real surprising he’s complaining about something”. And in response to that, Garcia said: “That’s fine. At least I’m true to myself. I know what I’m doing. He can do whatever he wants.” A delay of almost two hours due to the threat of lightning meant play could not be completed on schedule, with Lingmerth left to sleep on a two-shot lead over Sergio Garcia, Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson, with a daunting tee shot on the 18th to come on Sunday morning. The 25-year-old had been on the verge of contention throughout the day, but vaulted to the top of the leaderboard with an eagle on the 16th and birdie on the 17th, the latter coming after the siren had sounded to indicate the end of play.
