University chief investment officer to retire in June

first_imgScott C. Malpass, Notre Dame’s chief investment officer of 32 years, will retire June 30, University President Fr. John Jenkins announced in a press release on Friday.During his career, Malpass was responsible for the investment of the University’s endowment and additional assets totaling $14 billion. In his 32 years, the endowment grew $425 million from 1989 to a total $12.5 billion as of June 30, 2019. Endowment spending increased $425.7 million from $19.5 million in the same time period, the press release said.Notre Dame’s endowment provides for scholarship, research, academic programs and institutes, faculty chairs, athletics and one-third of all student financial aid.“The University’s average annual endowment returns over the past 30 years have ranked among the best in higher education and beyond,” Executive Vice President Shannon Cullinan said. “However, I believe Scott’s greatest gift to Notre Dame is the outstanding investment team he has assembled to ensure future generations of students, faculty and staff will benefit from the exceptional stewardship of our endowment.”The Institutional Investor Magazine named Malpass its large endowment manager of the year in 2011. Chief Investment Officer Magazine awarded Malpass its lifetime achievement award in 2014. Malpass also was one of 12 of America’s leading chief investment officers featured in the book, “Foundation and Endowment Investing: Philosophies and Strategies of Top Investors and Institutions.”Malpass graduated from Notre Dame in 1984, and received his master of business administration degree from the University in 1986. After working for Wall Street firm Irving Trust Company for two years, Malpass returned to the University to serve as chief investment officer. Malpass also was a concurrent assistant professor of finance in the Mendoza College of Business. Additionally, Malpass holds a law degree from the UCLA School of Law and an MBA from Harvard Business School.Michael Donovan will take up Malpass’s position. Donovan currently serves as managing director of the Notre Dame Investment Office, where he has worked for 23 years.“It’s been an honor to serve my alma mater, which, in three decades, has been able to realize magnificent aspirations that we could only dream of decades prior,” Malpass said. “That was made possible, in large measure, by the financial genius and devotion to Notre Dame of the investment team that I was privileged to assemble over the years.”Tags: Chief Investment Officer, Endowment, mendoza college of business, Scott Malpasslast_img read more

Panic Alarms Coming to Nassau Schools

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Nassau County officials are planning to distribute panic alarms to all schools in the county, allowing expedited contact with police more quickly than calling 911.Each school will receive five of the county-funded wireless devices that will connect directly with the Nassau County Police Department’s Communications Bureau—a plan designed to increase police response times in the event of a school shooting.The devices establishe a two-way microphone between the school and police that will stay activated and record until terminated by the police.The plan comes after Suffolk County this year enacted the School Active Violence Emergency hotline that provides direct lines from school buildings that will automatically dial the police department’s 911 center supervisor, who can immediately dispatch officers.Nassau authorities have also been hosting seminars to teach schools how to deal with active shooters as a precaution against massacres like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.Officials plan to discuss the panic alarms at a press conference Tuesday at Carle Place High School.last_img read more

With card fraud rising, remote control debit cards are a must

first_imgCard data breaches in the US are at record highs: In the first six months of 2017, an estimated 791 data incidents occurred, coming in at 29% more than the same timeframe in 2016. According to the report in Forbes, we are on track to witness more than 1,500 total breaches in 2017… 37% higher than last year, which holds the current record of 1,093. The article highlights the worsening conditions for credit card holders: There are now online classes teaching hackers how to perform the cybercrime of “Carding.” In a six-week program, taught in Russian, for $945 aspiring hackers can take 20 different lectures on finding legitimate credit card data for sale and hacking into PayPal accounts. Credit card fraud is estimated to cost $24 billion in 2018! Now more than ever your credit union must help shield members as best as you can from such dangers, and offering remote control cards to shut down access to their accounts when they are not using them is the first step.While many debit and credit card companies and processors employ sophisticated back-end fraud detection systems, remote control cards is a technology that puts fraud prevention into the hands of your credit union members.Innovation is alive within credit union core processing – and why wouldn’t it be?  Today, services like Uber and Lyft allow people to request a car and driver through their smartphone with the tap of a finger, so why should anyone have to sit on the phone to dispute a fraudulent debit or credit card charge? continue reading » 25SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

EU warns against shortening COVID quarantine as cases in Europe spike

first_imgShe said this week’s data showed that across Europe there were 46 cases per 100,000 people. “We are almost back to numbers that we have seen in March”, Ammon said, referring to the beginning of the peak phase in Europe.Infections in March in Europe began growing steadily to about 40 per 100,000 people at the end of the month, according to ECDC data, and kept increasing to around 70 per 100,000 by the end of April.The current increase in cases was due in part to more testing.New cases also concern largely younger people, she said, a new pattern that had resulted in stable hospitalization numbers, as the illness is more serious for older people who were hit hard in March and April.However, Ammon said hospitalizations were now growing again, signaling spikes in cases also among the elderly.The data, which concern the 27 EU countries, Britain, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, varied greatly between states from 2 to 176 per 100,000 people, Ammon said without citing specific countries.  She cautioned that in 3-4% of cases, infections emerge only after 14 days, which is currently the standard length of the COVID-19 quarantine.Last week, Germany decided that from October people returning from high-risk regions abroad will have to quarantine for five days.The partial loosening of COVID-19 preventive measures comes as Europe is experiencing a new increase in cases.”The virus has not been sleeping over the summer. It did not take vacation,” Ammon told lawmakers. The European Union is warning governments not to reduce the 14-day quarantine for people infected with COVID-19 as some develop the infection even after two weeks, the head of the bloc’s health agency said, signaling a new surge in cases in Europe.Germany, the EU’s largest country, informed EU authorities that it planned shortening the quarantine length, following similar moves by the Netherlands and Norway, minutes of a late-August meeting show.”We are looking to provide some evidence to decision makers on what kind of risks they would take if quarantine was shorter,” Andrea Ammon, head of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), told EU lawmakers in a regular hearing on Wednesday.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Osimhen waiting for more options, to give Napoli answer on Tuesday

first_imgThere are reports Victor Osimhen will give his answer to Napoli on Tuesday, as he’s waiting for Arsenal or Manchester United to step forward. The Lille striker visited the Napoli facilities this week, was shown around the city and visited President Aurelio De Laurentiis on the island of Capri. This charm offensive was to convince the Nigeria international to accept the move, as he remains unconvinced by the idea of playing in Italy. According to Calciomercato.it and our sources in Nigeria, Osimhen has promised to give Napoli a response either way by Tuesday. It’s believed this is because he has been waiting for Premier League offers to come in from Arsenal or Manchester United.Advertisement Essentially, he would be the first choice to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if he fails to agree a new contract with the Gunners. However, there’s little sign of that happening, especially at the €50m plus that Lille are asking for. Lille President Gerard Lopez has publicly and personally advised Osimhen to take the Napoli proposal. read also:Lille President urges Osimhen to accept Napoli’s offer This would be the second time Napoli missed out on a Lille player because of Arsenal, after losing the bidding war for €80m Nicolas Pepe last summer.

Unlucky Canaries claim battling point

first_img Chris Hughton’s men were leading 1-0 at the Stadium of Light through Wes Hoolahan’s close-range header when keeper Mark Bunn was dismissed for handling outside his area, and their fortunes took a further turn for the worse five minutes before the break when defender Sebastien Bassong conceded a penalty. Craig Gardner levelled from the spot and then forced a vital 59th-minute save from Camp as the Black Cats strove in vain for the goal they needed to secure a first win in seven Barclays Premier League games. The visitors struck first when Kei Kamara was allowed to meet Robert Snodgrass’ right-wing corner – the last of three in quick succession – with a firm header which was turned past keeper Simon Mignolet on the line by Hoolahan. The reaction inside the Stadium of Light was one of intense frustration, but the home side were handed a lifeline within three minutes. Danny Graham chased down a ball over the top and got to it marginally before the advancing Bunn, who blocked with his arm as he raced from his area. Referee Chris Foy had little option but to produce a red card, much to the keeper’s fury, and he made little secret of his feelings as he reluctantly left the pitch. Norwich’s fortunes were to take a further turn for the worse five minutes before the break when Bassong handled as he attempted to control John O’Shea’s pass on his chest and Gardner stepped up to smash the resulting penalty past replacement keeper Camp. The newcomer made a fine diving save to keep out Adam Johnson’s 42nd-minute piledriver with Graham scuffing the rebound across the face of goal, and was relieved to see Danny Rose’s injury-time effort clip the outside of the post and run to safety. Gardner was revelling in the extra space afforded to him by Norwich’s relative lack of personnel and he repeatedly turned up in advanced positions down the right, prompting Camp to make a good fingertip save with a 59th-minute thunderbolt. Camp distinguished himself once again to claim Johnson’s strike from distance two minutes later, and his side were appealing in vain for a penalty with 20 minutes remaining when Russell Martin’s cross hit Rose’s arm, in referee Foy’s opinion, inches outside the box.
