It embodies the energy and diversity of the pupils and teachers past and present, a vibrancy and imagination that bodes well for the future of LSP and equality based education in the city.”Jason Nash, of Limerick College of Art and Design, was responsible for the overall design of the book.He commented: “It’s always a lot of fun when working with children, they have very imaginative and creative minds, coming up with great ideas and wacky inventions. That’s ideal for making a fun and exciting book and makes my work as a designer much more interesting.”The Limerick School Project was born in 1986 from a meeting of a group of parents who sought a ‘multi-denominational, child-centred, co-educational and democratically run’ school for their children.The school grew over the years from 56 pupils and two teachers to its present population of 220 pupils and 13 teachers.‘Limerick School Project – the next 25 Years and Beyond’ is available for purchase for €10 from the school secretary.All proceeds go towards the cost of printing the book.

Generali pushes ahead with expansion, draws up London office plans

first_imgGenerali Investments is to push ahead with its expansion into the UK and Nordics after the company’s board approved the launch of a London office to cater to pension fund clients.The Italian asset manager’s intention to move into the UK and three Nordic markets – Norway, Denmark and Sweden – comes amid a push to grow third-party assets under management (AUM) from its current €17bn, a fraction of its overall €431bn, largely managed on behalf of the firm’s parent company, Italy’s largest insurer.Santo Borsellino, chief executive at Generali Investments, said the move into the four new markets was necessary to be seen as “serious” in the institutional asset management market.“We can not avoid being in core markets, like the UK and the Nordics, where historically we have not been present,” he said. Approval for its expansion into the new markets – away from its presence in Italy, Germany and France – was granted by the Bank of Italy late last year.Borsellino said the manager’s board in January signed off on the launch of a dedicated office in London, with a business plan currently being drawn up by the company’s head of sales and marketing, Andrea Favaloro.The Nordic countries and the UK were identified due to their concentration of institutional assets, and specifically their “developed” second-pillar pension systems, Generali Investments said.Favaloro added during an event in London that it was important to be seen as a “reliable partner” for UK pension investors and identified the growth in the defined contribution (DC) market as an opportunity for Generali to grow third-party assets.Borsellino said that the company’s current €17bn in third-party money amounted to growth of 16% year on year, and that it was now targeting an additional €8bn in assets by the end of 2018.Asked whether acquisitions could be one way to grow third-party assets, Borsellino said the company preferred organic growth over acquisitions.But he noted that the current market environment would nevertheless present “opportunities” for deals to buy other market participants.last_img read more
