Personnel management in the UK’s universities has been transformed by more part-time courses and the rising number of mature students.Vice-chancellor of the University of Glasgow Sir Graeme Davies told 150 HR staff at universities across the country that a third of students are now part time and 54 per cent are mature, aged 21 and over. “The HR impact of this is immense with more remote learning, more evening and weekend courses and the need to employ people who will work different, unusual hours.”Chairman of the UPA and personnel manager at York University Ged Murray warned that continuing chronic underfunding in higher education has caused major recruitment problems.

Teen dependents, ages 14-18, of military service members are invited to apply before May 1 for the two summer camps.“The summits offer military dependents an opportunity to build leadership and life skills in a high adventure environment,” said Laura Goss, Georgia 4-H Military Camp coordinator.  “Teenagers have the opportunity to have fun while connecting with teens to better understand their parent’s military service through targeted lessons, social interactions and service member volunteers. Youth gain independence, mastery and belonging.”UGA operates these two summer camps through the Military Teen Adventure Camps, a partnership funded by the Department of Defense between the Office of Military Community and Family Policy and the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture through a grant and cooperative agreement with Purdue University. Camps are open to dependents, ages 14-18, of military members currently serving in active or reserve components.

China’s rich skirting Hong Kong to seek asset safety elsewhere

Posted on by

first_img“Chinese HNIs like the law from the perspective of their love for the Chinese flag, but not from their asset protection perspective.”In another example, the founder of a Hong Kong-based boutique wealth manager focused on helping Chinese clients set up family offices said his firm was in partnership talks with two Dubai-based banks after receiving inquiries about setting up investment vehicles there.The expected shift has led some wealth managers to tap corporate recruiters to help hire Mandarin-speaking client advisers in other locations including Singapore and Switzerland, said the sources.Second in wealthGlobally, Hong Kong ranked second in wealth per adult after Switzerland in mid-2019, and 10th in the number of people with more than $50 million in assets, according to a Credit Suisse report.The city competes with Singapore to be considered Asia’s premier financial center. Global private banks including Credit Suisse, Julius Baer and UBS, as well as Asian wealth managers have operations in both hubs.A planned law last year that would have allowed extradition to China from Hong Kong was shelved after months of increasingly violent protests, but it sent shivers through the city’s wealthy who feared Beijing could have used it to freeze assets. Some went so far as to move funds.Now the proposed security law is triggering concerns about the semi-autonomous city’s freedoms and particularly, the legal protections it offers.The specifics of the new bill remain unclear. It is meant to tackle secession, subversion and terrorism and it could see Chinese intelligence agencies set up bases in Hong Kong.China has previously targeted mainland citizens in Hong Kong, mostly as part of corruption investigations, but there hasn’t been a large public seizure of assets in the city.”Now, it may just be that there will be more of a process around these things [after the imposition of the law],” said a wealth manager, whose firm manages over $200 billion in assets. Interviews with half a dozen bankers and headhunters have revealed that some Chinese clients are looking for other hubs as their main offshore wealth base with Singapore, Switzerland and London high on the list.One Chinese client who had been scouting investments in Hong Kong instead bought five apartments this week in Singapore via a newly set up family office, said the person’s adviser with a European wealth manager.”Singapore has been on their radar for a while now, but Hong Kong has been the default booking center for them,” said the Singapore-based banker, who, like his industry colleagues, declined to be identified due to sensitivity of the matter.He said his bank had begun receiving inquiries from Chinese high net worth individuals (HNIs) about opening accounts outside Hong Kong. Rich Chinese are expected to park fewer funds in Hong Kong on worries that Beijing’s proposed national security law for the city could allow mainland authorities to track and seize their wealth, bankers and other industry sources said.More than half of Hong Kong’s estimated private wealth of over $1 trillion is from mainland individuals who have parked money there, according to bankers.The city has benefited from its proximity to China and separate legal system, as well as its dollar-pegged currency, but there are now worries about it losing its edge as a global financial center due to capital and talent flight.center_img Topics :last_img read more
