London-based Norwegian Tangen is the founder and CEO of AKO Capital, whose flagship vehicle is a hedge fund, but has said he will separate himself from the company before taking up the reins at the GPFG in Oslo in September 2020.In the letter published yesterday afternoon and signed by the council’s leader Julie Brodtkorb, and Jan Frode Jakobsen, director of the office of the supervisory council, the panel asked “which specific provisions in Norges Bank’s ethical regulations are relevant to the assessment of whether the CEO of NBIM may have acted in contravention of the rules, in connection with participation in the said seminar.” Overseers at Norway’s central bank have revealed a host of concerns they have around last month’s appointment of a hedge fund magnate to lead the country’s NOK10.5tn (€916bn) oil fund in a letter to the bank’s executive – and questioned whether the current chief executive officer broke rules by accepting a private flight from him.In the letter containing four pages of questions, the supervisory council of Norges Bank has demanded written answers by Wednesday from the executive board on a range of aspects of the controversial hiring and the ethics of staff accepting gifts.The 15-strong panel composed the letter following an extraordinary meeting on Wednesday convened amid a scandal centring on the relationship between Yngve Slyngstad, CEO of the Government Pension Fund Global’s (GPFG) manager Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), and Nicolai Tangen – the man picked to replace him.Slyngstad admitted in an internal message to NBIM staff on Wednesday that he “screwed up” by getting on a chartered flight back from the “Back to University” seminar hosted by Tangen at Wharton Business School in Philadelphia last November, instead of a commercial flight from New York. Nicolai Tangen, NBIM’s newly-hired CEOThe council asked the bank’s executive board – whose chair, Norges Bank Governor Øystein Olsen, gave a statement on the furore at the supervisors’ meeting on Wednesday – to explain what assessments had been made against the current regulations in this context.“To what degree is it in line with current ethical regulations that some of the expenses related to participation in seminars – which include accommodation, entertainment and travel etc. – were covered by Nicolai Tangen?” the council asked.The supervisors began their letter by asking for an explanation about how Tangen’s personal circumstances through ownership of funds, management companies, etc., would be organised so as not to conflict with his duties and position as NBIM CEO.They also queried Olsen’s board about the extent to which it had been able to verify information on Tangen’s business activities in tax havens – an issue which has prompted some public criticism in Norway of the decision to appoint him.“Does the executive board have full access to the AKO companies’ activities in the Cayman Islands or Jersey and how will the executive board continuously monitor these activities?” the letter reads.Other questions include whether AKO firms had business relationships with the GPFG; how the Ministry of Finance was informed about the recruitment process, and why the list of applicants for the CEO role list published in February had not been updated with Tangen’s name – or as an anonymous applicant – before his appointment was announced.The executive board has been given a deadline of 29 April to reply to the letter.In Slyngstad’s internal memo, the text of which was confirmed to IPE by an NBIM spokeswoman, he began and ended with apologies to staff, described the US seminar as “extremely high quality”, and said he and Tangen had “a professional, colloquial tone, but not a personal relationship”.“I am truly sorry for letting you down, for letting the reputation of Norges Bank Investment Management down”Yngve Slyngstad, departing CEO of NBIMHowever, Slyngstad – who has led the oil fund for 12 years – condemned his decision to take the private flight as a “lack of good judgement and a classic example of how not to be professional.”“I am truly sorry for letting you down, for letting the reputation of Norges Bank Investment Management down, and for letting our organisational culture down,” he told employees.

NewsHub 13 December 2017A Bill on legalising euthanasia has passed its first reading after gaining majority support in Parliament through a conscience vote.Seventy-six MPs voted in favour and 44 voted against.It will now pass to the justice select committee and be open to public submissions.ACT MP David Seymour’s End of Life Choices Bill seeks to give people those suffering a terminal illness or a grievous or incurable medical condition the option to request medically assisted death.New Zealand First has supported the bill under the provision that a nationwide referendum is held on the issue.NZ First MP Tracey Martin said: “Not a single one of us is smarter than the people who placed us here, not a single one of us has more of a conscience or less of a conscience than the people who voted us here. This issue should go to them, this is too big an issue for this House to decide.”National leader Bill English opposed the Bill, saying it’s not creating a medical procedure but “an exemption from the criminal law against killing for a certain group”.“I don’t think anyone can in their heart of hearts believe that this bill will make life safer for the disabled, that it’ll make our community more warmly embracing of our aging population. Who pretends that?”Green MP Julie Anne Genter supported the Bill, but wants to see it amended to ensure there was no risk of abuse particularly for those with disabilities and other vulnerable people.READ MORE: http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2017/12/assisted-dying-bill-passes-first-reading-in-parliament.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Press Association Tottenham have completed the signing of Burnley defender Kieran Trippier on a five-year contract. The 24-year-old right-back, who is believed to have had a £3.5million release clause, leaves Turf Moor after four years. “When I first heard that the club was interested I didn’t have to think twice,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com. “It’s such a big club and now I just can’t wait to get started and show everyone what I can do. “I’ll take every opportunity I get with both hands and hopefully play my part for everyone at the club. “Whenever I get a chance, I want to do well for the other players, the staff and, of course, the fans.” Trippier only signed a new three-year contract with Burnley following their promotion to the Premier League a year ago but written into that deal was an agreement for him be allowed to move on should they be relegated, which subsequently happened. This week, as talks progressed with Spurs, Clarets boss Sean Dyche said it was only right the club honoured that agreement. “He made a great decision last summer to sign a contract, stay with the club, and we had to honour that in the respect that if we didn’t stay in the Premier League, then we’d allow him the chance to go on,” he said. “I think that’s an honourable thing to do with someone who’s been such a good servant and said he’d stay with Burnley in the Premier League. “He’s a very good player and it’s no surprise people came knocking.” A statement from Burnley added: “A clause in that extension allowed clubs to talk to the former England Under-21 international, should his valuation be met. “Spurs triggered that clause and have now moved to make Trippier their second summer signing. “Burnley Football Club would like to thank Kieran for his significant contribution to the club and wish him every success in his future career.”
