“It has been seen that a public entity – Keva, that is – can look after pensions for smaller cost and in a more just manner. In addition, their investments have yielded more than those of private pension insurance companies.“A public monopoly would serve the interests of pension savers better than the current setting, where competition is only nominal.”Kataja also argued that the current system wastes resources on high management costs and paying bonuses to the companies that switch insurance companies.“A single institution would be easier to supervise than a system consisting of several players,” Kataja said.“One large actor would also have the best chances to perform well in terms of investment returns.”Suvi-Anne Siimes, managing director at Tela, responded to Kataja’s proposals by pointing out that the main task of the occupational pensions system was to secure pensions for current and future pensioners.Tela represents all statutory earnings-related pension insurance institutions in Finland.“There is a strong basis for the current, diversified model in Finland, the most important duty of which is to secure statutory pensions,” Siimes told IPE.“In the Finnish occupational pension system, unlike in so many other countries, pension assets are kept separate from the state budget.“This means the funds cannot be used for anything else except paying out pensions – for example, for balancing state or municipal economies in harder times, unlike in some other countries in Europe, as seen recently.”The current structure also reduces investment risk, as each institution follows its own investment strategy, Siimes said.“In a more centralised system, investment portfolios would also be more centralised, which would increase investment risk in the whole system,” she added.“In the current system, if one investment fails to perform well, another one will balance it.”In early 2013, the Finnish Centre for Pensions published a study comparing the costs of the Finnish occupational pensions system with corresponding systems in other countries.It found that the operating costs of the Finnish system were the lowest in the Nordic region, and that the pensions landscape comprised fewer institutions than in other countries researched. The Finnish Pension Alliance (Tela) has criticised the recent suggestion of Sampsa Kataja – a local MP and former chairman of Finland’s local government pension institution Keva – that the country’s pensions landscape should be simplified into a monopoly of one public pension institution.Kataja, currently serving as an MP for the centre-right National Coalition Party, told Finland’s national public service broadcasting company last week that the current system, which consists of several institutions for statutory pensions, should be dismantled and a public monopoly established instead.According to Kataja, supervising a single and public institution would be easier and more profitable than the current setting of several public and private bodies for statutory pensions.“Pensions and contribution rates are defined in the law, meaning there is no real competition in the market in any case,” he said.

Reports emerged earlier today that Mohammed Salah’s agent “offered” the Liverpool star to Barcelona for a deal. That report has been strongly denied by Salah’s agent.Salah only joined Liverpool last summer and enjoyed a stellar debut campaign at Anfield. But Spanish newspaper AS reported that the 25-year-old had been ‘offered’ to La Liga giants Barcelona by his agents.His agent took to Twitter to refute the claim, saying that such thing never happened: This never happened. @English_AS you need better sources. https://t.co/Y4OpwkoNYV— Ramy Abbas Issa (@RamyCol) June 6, 2018Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…Salah scored 44 goals in 52 appearances in his first season at Liverpool and was named Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year and PFA Player of the Year. The £36m signing helped Liverpool to the Champions League final but was forced off with an injury as his side lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev. And he faces a race against time to get fit for this summer’s World Cup campaign, where Egypt face hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay.Salah was included in Egypt’s 23-man squad but Egypt coach Hector Cuper has admitted he is preparing for life without his star man.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that defender Dejan Lovren sustained a hamstring injury during their 2-1 defeat at Wolves on Monday night.Lovren was replaced by 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever after just six minutes into the game at the Molineux.In his post-match press conference, Klopp confirmed the injury and gave an update on his condition.“[It is his] hamstring, is what I heard – without any signs before. I asked everybody, no signs, nothing, just out of the blue, so that’s the decision you have to make,” he told the club’s website.“I am not sure what you all would have said if immediately from the beginning if our centre-half situation was Fabinho and Ki-Jana; then probably a few very smart people would tell me that I don’t respect the competition or whatever.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“So, we tried to do all the things [we could]. Of course, on the other hand, it doesn’t make sense to bring in a 16-year-old boy from the start.“You don’t bring him, you wait until he is completely ready, but he did well. He came on and did well.“That’s how it sometimes starts – when you are really needed then it is only about if you are good enough and not how old you are.“He did well, so that was all OK. That’s it.”Asked when the defender might return, Klopp answered: “I don’t know in this moment.”
