The study, involving 269 patients, is the smallest and shortest of the five Esperion expects to report this year. The largest, in which 3,000 patients will get either Esperion’s drug or placebo over the course of at least a year, is scheduled to read out in May.

Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement.The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives, to be downloaded again on Apple devices. In a letter sent to Congress by Apple, the company explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.”On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch, reported CNN. Parler CEO says social media app may not return January 14, 2021 The presence of violent speech was cited as a reason for removal by all three tech giants. The app came back online on Feb. 15, but not before Parler’s CEO was terminated by its board. It took another two months for Apple to give its approval restoring Parler to its app store, reported CNN.In the meantime, Parler is waging a legal battle against Amazon, alleging in part that Big Tech companies colluded to restrict Parler’s access to the market. In court filings and elsewhere, Parler has said that it had been developing an artificial intelligence-based content moderation system when the larger platforms’ crackdown took place.The tech companies have rejected Parler’s accusations of anti-competitive behavior. In Monday’s letter, Apple said its decision to remove Parler from its app store was “an independent decision” and that Apple “did not coordinate or otherwise consult with Google or Amazon with respect to that decision,” reported CNN.The-CNN-Wire™ & © 2021 Cable News Network, Inc., a WarnerMedia Company.

SIFMA announces best interests standard for U.S. broker-dealers

first_img This new standard “would articulate a legal and enforceable best interests obligation; consider investment-related fees as part of the best interests standard; avoid and/or manage material conflicts of interest; and provide disclosures about material conflicts and investment-related fees to enhance transparency,” SIFMA says. It could be articulated through amendments to the existing rules of the U.S. self-regulatory organization, the Washington, D.C-based Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), says SIFMA. A best interest standard for broker-dealers, the association says, should: apply to all investment recommendations made to individual retail customers in all brokerage accounts, not just retirement accounts; provide “best interests” protections for retail customers; and follow the traditional regulatory approach of establishing a rules-based standard, including enhanced disclosure requirements, and robust examination, oversight, and enforcement by securities regulators, along with a private right of action for investors. “SIFMA’s best interests standard for broker-dealers is a comprehensive, investor-focused, regulatory solution that works within the existing regulatory framework,” says Kenneth Bentsen, Jr., president and CEO of SIFMA. “SIFMA has long supported the creation of a uniform fiduciary standard for broker-dealers and investment advisers. With multiple regulators considering different approaches which could result in bifurcated standards, redundant compliance regimes and investor confusion we believe this offers a path forward,” Bentsen says. James Langton Related news The U.S. securities industry has proposed a best interests standard as an alternative to the fiduciary standard that was put forward by the U.S. Department of Labor earlier this year. The New York City-based U.S. Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) announced its best interests standard for broker-dealers serving retail clients on Monday.

Canadian elected as CFA Institute chairwoman

first_imgTessie Sanci Facebook LinkedIn Twitter PenderFund names new SVP for investments Keywords AppointmentsCompanies CFA Institute Beth Hamilton-Keen, a chartered financial analyst (CFA) and director of investment counselling with Calgary-based Mawer Investment Management Ltd., has been elected as chairwoman of the board of governors for the CFA Institute, the global association for CFAs. Hamilton-Keen has been involved with the CFA Institute for 15 years and has held roles such as director and president of Calgary’s CFA Society and Canadian representative on the global institute’s Presidents’ Council. “Beth has a long history with the CFA Institute, from leading the local Calgary CFA Society, to grading exams, to playing an integral role on our councils and committees,” says Paul Smith, president and CEO of the CFA Institute, in a statement. “With a wealth of experience in the investment management industry on which to draw [upon], I have every confidence that Beth and the board she leads will support and guide us in this mission.” As Mawer’s director of investment counselling, Hamilton-Keen advises and manages portfolios for private client and family office clients. She has spent more than 20 years in the finance services sector, with roles at Toronto-based Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and the bank’s private wealth-management business. “Every day, our members are in a position to impact the welfare of families, the success of businesses, the health of communities, and the economies of countries,” says Hamilton-Keen in a statement. “The typical investor does not realize this so we need to raise public awareness concerning the positive impact investment management professionals can have on society. The sustainability of our profession is dependent on changing investors’ perceptions of both the work we do and the beneficial role we can serve. As chair[woman], this aspiration is part of my vision.” Hamilton-Keen will succeed Aaron Low, the outgoing chairman. She begins her three-year term in the role effective on Sept. 1. Hamilton-Keen and the other members of the CFA Institute’s board were elected by the association’s membership at the CFA Institute’s annual conference in April.center_img CETFA elects new board leader Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media TD getting new head of private wealth, financial planninglast_img read more

S&P sees K-shaped global recovery

first_img Keywords Pandemics,  Coronavirus,  Credit ratings,  Economic forecastsCompanies Standard & Poor’s Stagflation is U.S. economists’ biggest fear, SIFMA says Related news Sectors that are holding up well include tech, consumer staples, homebuilders and retail essentials (such as groceries), S&P said, while industries such as airlines and hotels are experiencing credit damage that “will go well into 2023.”Another key point of divergence is between richer countries that have the monetary and fiscal firepower to help their economies absorb the effects of the pandemic and poorer countries that aren’t equipped to do the same.“Macroeconomic and credit trends point to a widening gap in credit risks across regions and industries in the year to come,” S&P said.Against this backdrop, S&P forecasts that the speculative-grade corporate default rate will double to 12.5% in the U.S. by June next year, and will more than double to 8.5% from 3.8% in Europe.The rating agency also noted that credit downgrades have slowed, but negative outlooks are at “unprecedented highs,” indicating that more rating actions are likely ahead.“Banks can absorb the shock generally, but recovery will be slow and uneven,” S&P said.There are also numerous risks to the global outlook, the rating agency said, including renewed lockdown measures, corporate solvency, large government debt loads and weak emerging markets, along with rising geopolitical tensions and mounting ESG risks.The report also warned that the development of an effective Covid-19 vaccine “is no magic switch.”Even if a vaccine is approved soon, it will take time to manufacture and distribute billions of doses — not to mention overcoming objections to vaccination.“Next year will more likely be a continuum on the health front, albeit with lower mortality rates, rather than a ‘before’ and ‘after’,” S&P said.

Dwight Nelson has lauded the bravery and courage of Constable Marlon Samms even as he expressed sorrow at the death of the policeman.The Constable who was attached to the Linstead Police Station, died at the Kingston Public Hospital after he was shot by gunmen, when he and a colleague attempted to foil a robbery.One of the gunmen was fatally shot, while it is believed that another was shot and injured.Senator Nelson called on Jamaicans to recognise that Constable Samms’ unhesitating bravery in confronting brazen gunmen who are bent on unleashing terror on civil society, demonstrated what the nation’s policemen have been facing in the execution of their duties – that of putting their lives on the line at all times.The National Security Minister further urged the nation to note that notwithstanding the threat to their lives, police officers have no recourse but to serve and protect.He asserts that Constable Samms was a young policeman, who lost his life in this untimely manner, while attempting to save the lives and property of other Jamaicans who are being held at ransom, by cruel men.Senator Nelson reminded Jamaicans that the young policeman had family and loved ones, who have been cruelly robbed, when merciless men snuffed out the policeman’s life.The Minister acknowledged that it must be a difficult time for the Jamaica Constabulary Force with five among them being killed since the start of year.He urged Constable Samms’ colleagues to be strong and remain vigilant in their faithful pursuit of duty.To the family members and loved ones of Constable Samms, Senator Nelson says he is painfully aware that no amount of words could bring back the policeman who gave his life for his country.In extending condolences, the Minister implored them to look to the Lord for strength in this difficult time.

Holocaust Survivor To Give Inaugural Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture During Annual CU-Boulder Diversity Summit

first_imgA woman who narrowly survived Nazi labor camps and a 350-mile death march before meeting the U.S. soldier who would liberate her – and later marry her – will talk about hope, redemption and tolerance at the University of Colorado at Boulder’s 13th annual Diversity Summit.Holocaust survivor and Academy Award Winner Gerda Weissmann Klein, an acclaimed educator and author of eight books, will be the inaugural speaker for the Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series at this year’s summit, which takes place on Monday, Feb. 18, and Tuesday, Feb. 19. The summit’s theme is “Learning From Our Past to Build a Better Future.” All events will take place at the University Memorial Center, or UMC, and are free and open to students, faculty, staff and the general public.”We are so honored to have Gerda Klein with us,” said Sallye McKee, CU-Boulder’s vice chancellor for diversity, equity and community engagement. “Mrs. Klein’s harrowing and triumphant experiences remind us of the truest purposes of the Diversity Summit: to continue the struggle to fully enfranchise all who live at the margins of our society and to eliminate the barriers and human choices that place them there.”CU-Boulder hosts the summit each year to underscore the importance of respect, tolerance and acceptance of all human diversity, whether those differences be based on physical appearance, ability or disability, national origin, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or political ideology. Over the past 12 years, members of the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Minority Affairs (CACMA) have created a campus tradition that has helped to transform the campus community’s understanding of diversity. The summit will occur as the university prepares to mark Black History Month and Holocaust Awareness Week in February and Women’s History Month in March.Chancellor G.P. “Bud” Peterson, McKee and other campus officials will introduce guests and address students, faculty, staff and the general public during the two-day summit. Other events will include a student panel on diversity, an interactive theater presentation and a reception.”I want to encourage our entire university community to attend this important series of workshops and events,” Peterson said. “Ethnic, gender, intellectual and geographic/socio-economic diversity are integral to higher education and our mission, and as such, comprise one of our core values. The Diversity Summit is a time for the University of Colorado at Boulder to reaffirm our commitment and improve our community.”Klein’s keynote address, “One Survivor Remembers,” will take place at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the UMC Ballroom, and is based on a 1995 Emmy and Academy Award-winning documentary about her life. She will speak about her harrowing ordeal in Nazi labor camps, the death march alongside thousands of other condemned youths and her marriage and love affair with the American G.I. whose heart she captured during the 1945 liberation of war prisoners. Klein weighed only 68 pounds when American soldiers freed her and 120 other young women.Well known for her work to reduce bigotry and hunger, Klein is credited with inspiring healing after speaking to survivors of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre. She and her husband founded the Gerda and Kurt Klein Foundation, and designed a tolerance curriculum for the Southern Poverty Law Center that has benefited more than 10 million students across the nation.Her appearance is being made possible by CU Leeds School of Business board members Michael Leeds and John Fischer.Other guest speakers will include Colorado Sen. Jennifer Veiga, D-Denver, who will participate in a discussion about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the UMC Ballroom, and Joseph C. Silva, a University of California, Davis retired professor and psychologist who will talk about disabilities and the aftermath of the Virginia Tech shootings from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 18, in the UMC Ballroom.For a complete Diversity Summit schedule, visit www.colorado.edu/CU-diversity/summit.html.
