Gold Coast tops Queensland with 19 per cent jump in multi-unit land values

first_imgColliers International national director project marketing residential Tony Hymus said the Coast was a hot spot for Chinese developers. Picture: Richard GoslingColliers International national director project marketing residential Tony Hymus said the Coast was a hot spot for Chinese developers.“The number of Chinese developers who have bought sites on the Gold Coast is astounding and a lot of it is driven by the fact that they don’t have to get construction finance for their projects,” Mr Hymus said.“That’s often a major issue for Australian developers.”He predicted the influx of Chinese developers to continue. “They believe the overseas investor market and individual unit sales will improve dramatically,” he said.

Norwegian oil fund sees losses following exclusion decisions

first_imgNorway’s sovereign wealth fund has seen its portfolio underperform the benchmark by 1 percentage point over the last decade, as a result of its decision to exclude more than 60 companies.Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) said that, at the end of 2015, it excluded 65 companies from its investment universe, in line with the Ministry of Finance’s mandate for the NOK7.5trn (€796bn) Government Pension Fund Global.The decision to exclude companies for violations of international treaties, which should not be confused with NBIM’s risk-based divestment of firms, saw the fund underperform its benchmark by 1.17 percentage points, according to the manager’s inaugural performance and risk report for 2015.NBIM said that, of the 65 companies excluded, 54 would have been represented in its benchmark index, with a combined market value of NOK127bn. “When companies are excluded,” the report states, “this alters the risk and return characteristics of the index, as remaining companies are assigned a higher weight. Since 2006, these exclusions have had a cumulative performance impact of -1.17 percentage points.”Excluding tobacco firms – at NOK 61.8bn, accounting for nearly half of the excluded companies’ market value – caused NBIM to lose 0.68 percentage points in return from 2006 to 2015, followed by the aerospace and defence sectors.Notably, the exclusion of mining companies boosted returns by 0.04 percentage points, while the exclusion of companies within the industrial metals sector boosted returns by 0.01 percentage points.NBIM said the impact of excluding certain companies within the chemicals sector, and construction and materials sector, was flat.The fund, Europe’s largest asset owner, recently announced an annual return of 2.7%, outperforming its benchmark by 0.5%.last_img read more

Wartsila order intake climbs, sees improved marine industry outlook for this year

first_imgLNG World News Staff Image courtesy of WärtsiläFinnish engine maker Wärtsilä reported a 14 percent rise in quarterly order intake as it expects more growth opportunities in 2018, mainly in the company’s service business.Wärtsilä’s bookings of new orders in the fourth quarter rose to 1.51 billion euros ($1.87 billion). For the full-year of 2017, order intake increased 15 percent to 5.64 billion euros.The Finnish LNG specialist said in a statement on Wednesday its quarterly sales dropped 7 percent to 1.44 billion euros, while full-year sales declined 3 percent to 4.92 billion euros.The company expects demand for its services and solutions in 2018 to “improve somewhat” from the previous year.The market demand had improved for its marine solution business but “the marine market environment remains challenging due to overcapacity and lack of financing,” it said.“We continue to see growth opportunities in our service business, based on our portfolio of long-term agreements and the increasing technological sophistication of our installed base,” said chief executive Jaakko Eskola.“The demand for our energy solutions is anticipated to be at a good level, supported by a healthy project pipeline and favourable market trends. Market conditions are expected to improve in the marine industry, thus supporting a solid demand outlook,” added Eskola.last_img read more

Mourinho tips Costa to shine

first_img “It doesn’t change my vision, my feeling. “We can do nothing more than say, we can do nothing more than feel. We feel we are title contenders, we can’t add anything else to this. “If the first team is better than us, if we are good, very good, but somebody is better than us, that’s football, that’s not a failure. “But the only thing you can do is to be good. “We have to be good, to be better than last season, in everything. “We have to fight for titles, and after that if somebody is really better than us, it’s because they were fantastic.” New boy Costa can only speak “10 words in English”, but Mourinho said his low-key personality and warm body language have already endeared him to his team-mates. “He’s such a communicator, he’s such a group guy: he’s such a happy man that despite not speaking more than 10 words in English, he still speaks with everybody,” said Mourinho. “He can have a conversation and interact with everybody, and he doesn’t understand one single word the person is saying. “But just because of his gestures and body language, and happiness and so on, everybody likes the guy so much. “And he comes from Atletico, he comes here, and adapts quickly, he’s the happy guy in the group, he’s not shy. It’s fantastic. “I say to him every time, ‘do you need me to explain something in Portuguese’, and he shrugs and says, ‘I understand everything’. “I think football-wise yes (he understands), especially in football meetings and videos, and my comments and so on. “I think he goes in the direction I want him to go. He’s a clever guy.” The Blues boss revealed he ran the rule over the 18-year-old Costa when he emerged at Portuguese club Braga in 2006, during his first managerial stint in west London. Mourinho hailed his £32million summer signing from Atletico as the “humble” striker from “behind the sunset” who can become this term’s outstanding Barclays Premier League star. The Stamford Bridge chief remains adamant missing out on the Premier League title would not represent automatic failure this season. “To be fair when he was in Portugal I had a look at him, so everybody was blind, including myself,” said Mourinho, of the Brazil-born Spain forward. “He can be (the star of the Premier League), yes I know. “He’s still the guy that comes from a very small village behind the sunset. “His village is behind the sunset – you want to arrive there, and it’s difficult to arrive. “He’s still that guy, the way he behaves, the way he acts, the way he interacts, he’s still that naive, pure, simple, humble guy.” Mourinho claimed he will absorb the pressure – both internal and external – for silverware at Chelsea this season, refusing to alter his plans. “It doesn’t change my approach,” said Mourinho. Jose Mourinho has admitted he was “blind” to spurn the chance to sign a teenage Diego Costa for Chelsea eight years ago. Press Associationlast_img read more
