AP Pension unveils Danish agriculture investment fund

first_imgIts first investment took place around New Year, it said, with the completion of the purchase of a 190-hectare cattle farm in Zealand.Over the next few months, AP Pension said it expected to buy 10 more farms.In the current market, Dal Thomsen said the investment would produce an attractive return relative to risk.“We expect the price of agricultural land to follow inflation, and when everything is taken into consideration and administrative costs deducted, it will leave us with a solid return we expect to be on the right side of 7% before tax,” he said.Under acquisition terms, AP Pension will own the farm buildings and land, with the farmer signing a 10-year agreement, undertaking to run the farm, including the financing of animals, machinery and business borrowing.The farmer will pay AP Pension a rent of 5.2% of the amount invested in the land, and 6.5% of the amount invested in the buildings, and will retain business profits.It said the model allowed the farmer to build up equity to enable him or her to obtain financing for the purchase of the farm when the agreement expired.Dal Thomsen said the pension fund would safeguard returns by carrying out a thorough review of the economics of farms before investing in them.“Danish agriculture is today one of the world’s most efficient, and we see great potential in investment in agriculture,” he said. Denmark’s DKK89bn (€11.9bn) commercial pension fund AP Pension said it has set up a new fund to invest DKK600m in Danish agricultural land and buildings, targeting returns of 7%.The fund, called Dansk Farmland, aims to buy farms in Denmark and lease them back on long-term contracts to the individual farmers running them.Søren Dal Thomsen, managing director of AP Pension, said: “We expect to achieve an attractive return for our customers from the investments in Danish agriculture, at the same time as helping some of the best farmers, who have struggled in vain up to now to borrow the money to buy a farm.”The planned size of the fund is around DKK600m, the pension fund said.last_img read more

Freeholder Curley Mulls Independent Run; Scharfenberger Joins Board

first_imgBy Jay Cook |Monmouth County Freeholder John P. Curley is contemplating a re-election run later this year but may do so without an ‘R’ next to his name for the first time since his days in Red Bank.Curley did not receive Republican support to run on this year’s party line for the Monmouth County Freeholder seat he currently holds, a decision made during the county’s Republican committee convention at iPlay America in Freehold last Saturday. Republicans instead tapped Hazlet Deputy Mayor Sue Kiley, a two-term elected official, for the nomination.Curley said he was not even introduced as a possible candidate at the convention. And in the wake, Curley told The Two River Times, “I’m looking at my options, looking also at a potential independent run.” Curley, who currently sits as a Republican on the Freeholder board, said he would also have to look at his financial sources.County GOP chairman Shaun Golden, who also serves in an elected office as Monmouth County Sheriff, sent a letter to Republicans in December asking them not to support Curley in the upcoming election. Curley was censured by the Freeholder board in December after a report by a retired Superior Court judge allegedly found he sexually harassed county employees through “salacious and vulgar statements,” a resolution of the censure read.But Curley has vowed to stand his ground and support the same principles he always has.“I never played into the so-called ‘Club Monmouth’ and I don’t answer to political bosses. I vote my conscience,” he said. “That’s the way I’ve always been, even when I was a councilman in Red Bank and obviously as a freeholder.”“Club Monmouth” was the moniker given to Republicans in the wake of the Operation Bid Rig investigation where federal authorities investigated rampant political patronage between businessmen and elected officials over the past decade.Early in his political career Curley ran as a Democrat in Red Bank before switching to the Republican party in the early-2000s.Middletown and Hazlet RepresentedAfter state Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso (R-13) left the Freeholder board last month to take her position in Trenton, the GOP also elected one of their own to fill her vacancy – former Middletown mayor and committeeman Gerry Scharfenberger.Scharfenberger, a 14-year elected official in Middletown, stepped down from the township’s governing body on Saturday after he was unanimously picked and subsequently sworn in to the Freeholder board.“I’m at a point now where it was probably now or never,” Scharfenberger told The Two River Times. “With the chance to serve on the county board, I can still do a lot of good things for Middletown, but also do things on a regional level, too.”Because he is filling a vacated seat, Scharfenberger’s term ends after 2018. He said he and Kiley would be running mates for the 2018 freeholder election. The Two River Times reported last month that Scharfenberger and Kiley would be the GOP’s odds-on favorites for the 2018 election.After being elected for the first time in 2004, Scharfenberger served as mayor six times and deputy mayor twice, he said. He currently works for the state as director for the Office of Planning Advocacy and is executive director of the New Jersey Business Action Center, as well as being an anthropology professor at Monmouth University.Scharfenberger said some specific achievements stand out during his tenure in Middletown. Most notably, overseeing the opening of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s second freestanding outpatient center in New Jersey; moving township dispatch calls to county supervision last year; and the preservation of both the Chris’ Marina property along the Swimming River and the Coe Property in the Chapel Hill section of town – both of which are now dedicated open space.“I’m hoping to have the same success I had in Middletown at the county level,” he said, while adding he’s confident in the current committee moving forward.Kiley, his running mate this year, is viewed as a rising star in the local Republican party. A two-term elected official, she is currently Hazlet’s deputy mayor and served as mayor in 2017. If she wins the election, Kiley said she would be the first Hazlet representative on the Freeholder board.“Hazlet is my first priority, and just being at the county just increases my ability to help my own town,” she said.“I’ve always said I will do whatever is best for my town and my party,” she added.Kiley oversaw a zero percent tax increase over the past two years in Hazlet and also touted the opening of a township Disabled American Veterans (DAV) office for veterans’ services in Town Hall.The DemocratsWhile their convention isn’t until March 3, Monmouth County Democrats are starting to game plan for 2018. Holmdel resident and frequent Democratic candidate Lawrence Luttrell confirmed to The Two River Times that he intends to run for the Freeholder board this year.Luttrell ran unsuccessfully for freeholder in 2013 and 2014, and also lost a bid for township committee in Holmdel last year.During his previous county campaigns, Luttrell said he pushed for selling the two county-owned nursing homes. That eventually happened in 2016, but he alleged taxpayers didn’t see that $32 million price tag return to them.“You have people struggling to pay their taxes and you have to choose between buying food or paying your taxes,” Luttrell said this week.Luttrell said he is unaware of who will be his potential running mate, which will be determined in March.This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Caneiro Attorneys Forced To Step Down

first_imgAuthorities took Paul into custody Nov. 21 and would later charge him with murder, arson and other charges. “We didn’t quit. The rules of professional conduct forced us to withdraw, and it’s very frustrating,” Ansell said. “It feels like it’s being implied that we just decided not to represent him anymore. And that’s just not accurate. As lawyers we have taken an oath, and we have to abide by the rules of professional conduct.” In court documents, prosecutors allege the killings were motivated by money and believe Keith was preparing to cut Paul off financially. The siblings owned and operated Square One, a lucrative technology consulting firm situated in Asbury Park, from which it is alleged Paul was syphoning funds for personal use. According to a media release distributed Monday, the firm of Ansell, Grimm & Aaron, PC sought and received relief for Mitchell J. Ansell and Robert A. Honecker Jr. after reviewing discovery from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office (MCPO), as well as subsequent material collected during their own investigation of the events of Nov. 20, 2018, the day Paul Caneiro’s brother and family were found slaughtered in their Colts Neck mansion. Ansell, who has handled cases in Monmouth County for the last three decades, said he hasn’t seen anything like the media attention given to the Caneiro case “in a long time.” Moving forward Caneiro’s defense will be handled by the Monmouth County Public Defender’s Office and his new attorney Michael Wicke. Paul Caneiro made national headlines in November when he was taken into custody after his brother was gunned down in the driveway of his Colts Neck estate.center_img COLTS NECK – The defense team at the helm of Paul Caneiro’s quadruple murder case will no longer include two respected local attorneys. Though he will no longer proceed with the defense effort, Ansell said Caneiro has rights that need to be observed. It was during the review of these materials that at least two separate conflicts of interest were discovered, forcing the firm’s personnel to step away, a point Ansell stressed to The Two River Times in a March 19 interview. “Our withdrawing from the case does not impact Paul’s rights under the constitution to a full and fair trial,” Ansell added. “The state still has to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Our withdrawal has no bearing on that.” Authorities discovered the body of Keith Caneiro after responding to a fire at the Willow Brook Road residence. After suppressing the flames, the charred bodies of Keith’s wife Jennifer and two children, 8-year-old Sophia and 11-year-old Jesse, were discovered inside.last_img read more
