£10k to invest? Here’s where I’d suggest you invest it inside a Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img If you have a lump sum to invest, whether £1k, £5k, £10k or more, then lucky you. However, it is also a responsibility.I’d avoid cash for a startYou need to find the right home for your money, one where it will grow in value over the long run. If you put it in a Cash ISA, you will get little interest these days, which means the value of your money will fall in real terms after inflation. This is not the place to build long-term wealth.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The gold price is rising, gaining around 15% last year, and you might consider that instead. However, gold does not pay any interest, so you are dependent purely on the price rising. The price has been driven higher by US-Iran tensions and concerns over the trade war with China, but if those worries recede, the price can fall back quickly, leaving you sitting on a loss.Shares beat crypto-currenciesThe price of Bitcoin doubled last year and is still growing, but I would be wary, because it is extremely volatile and could fall rapidly at any point.Over the longer run, I would prefer to leave most of my wealth invested in stocks and shares, taking advantage of my annual £20k ISA allowance. This allows you to invest in thousands of individual company stocks and collective investment funds, and take all your capital growth and dividend income free of tax.If I had £10k to invest today, I would consider putting £5k of it in a low-cost tracker fund, to get it to work right away. A FTSE 100 tracker spreads your money across the UK’s top 100 companies, giving you access to all the growth on the blue-chip index, as well as their dividends. Currently, the index yields an income of 4.34% a year, far better than you can get from a Cash ISA.Alternatively, you could split your £5k between a FTSE 100 tracker and FTSE 250 tracker, which gives you access to the next 250 largest UK companies. If you want international exposure, consider a tracker following the US S&P 500 index.Buy a balanced spread of sharesI would invest the remaining £5k in a spread of individual stocks, again using my Stocks and Shares ISA allowance. This gives you the opportunity to be in the stock market, and build your wealth faster over time.I think now could be a good time to invest in the UK stock market, as the political uncertainty of the last three years or so is starting to lift. Global investors have been avoiding UK stock market due to Brexit fears, but now they may return in force.Finding the right balance of stocks can take a bit of time, but this site can help. It is worth doing your research, because £10k is a lot of money. Invest wisely and it could soon be worth a lot more.

The Division Bench comprising Chief Justice PR Ramachandra Menon and Justice Parth Prateem Sahu observed that the Petitioner had made out a prima facie case and it is pertinent to seek a response from the Respondent-authorities. “We are of the view that a prima facie case has been made out by the petitioner. But we do not intend to express any opinion on this aspect, as the matter can be considered only after filing a reply by the respondent/State… xxx Meanwhile, no further proceeding shall be pursued by the respondents concerned to give effect to the proceedings under challenge, till the next date of hearing,” the order states. Background A government land, carrying “substantial value” as per the Petitioner, has been allotted to the Congress Party on in lease for 30 years, by the Kurud Nagar Panchayat. The Petitioner, through Advocate Sharad Mishra, has claimed that the said land was reserved for construction of Cultural Center and other public purposes and that the lease had been executed without following the due procedure prescribed under the relevant provisions of Chhattisgarh Municipalities Act and Rules. The primary grounds for challenge to allotment of the Government land to a political party are: The due procedure prescribed for allotment of government land to any political party in the Revenue Book Circular as well as in the Chhattisgarh Municipalities Act and Rules has not been adhered to.The guidelines issued by the Supreme Court in Akhil Bhartiya Upbhokta Congress v. State of MP, 2011 (5) SCC 29, with respect to allotment of government land has not been followed.The said allotment is violative of Bangalore Medical Trust v. BS Muddappa & Ors., AIR 1991 SC 1902, whereby the Supreme Court observed that a government land reserved for a particular public purpose should not be diverted for any other purpose. The said allotment is contrary to the provisions of land allotment rules to a political party which says that two government lands within the same city should not be allotted to any political party. In the present case congress party is already holding a government land on lease for the purpose of building its office but even after that another land in the same city has been allotted to them which contravenes the said allotment. The said allotment is in absolute contravention of statutory rules which provide that allotment should only be made on application of State President/ General Secretary of a Political Party, whereas in the present case allotment has been made on the application of Block President.The said allotment is against the procedure prescribed for allotment of government land inasmuch as no public auction or notice or any advertisement has been published before allotting the said land by passing of resolution by Nagar Panchayat Kurud. Dy. Advocate General Chandresh Shrivastava appearing for the Government had refuted the petition as non-maintainable, stating that the same was filed by the leader of a political party and thus, could not be termed as a ‘public interest litigation’. On merits, he had argued that Rule 3B of the Chhattisgarh Municipalities (Transfer of Immovable Property) Rules, 1996 enables allotment of the Government land to the political parties for construction of their offices. The matter is now listed for hearing on September 29. Click Here To Download Order Read Order Next Storylast_img read more

Uni ‘spends £108,000’ to recruit each additional low-income student

first_imgBrasenoseSt John’s Queen’s CollegeChrist Church HertfordKeble Corpus ChristiWadham WadhamWorcester MagdalenMansfield St Anne’sTrinity Christ ChurchPembroke New CollegeMerton St Catherine’sOriel Lady Margaret HallNew College Part of the blame for colleges’ sustained reliance on students from private schools is attributed to competition caused by the Norrington Table, which annually ranks colleges by final degree results.However, statistical analysis currently under way at the Oxford Student Union suggests no connection between the proportion of students from poorer postcodes and final exam scores. St Edmund HallSt Edmund Hall Students from low-income postcodes are not the only ones being targeted by outreach schemes. In addition, Oxford focuses on two other primary measures of disadvantage: the number of students from under-represented schools and the number of students from areas of low participation in higher education. The University also has targets for students with disabilities.Taking into account all three of the disadvantage metrics, while compensating for students who may fall under more than one indicator, Rusbridger calculates that Oxford formally aims to increase the total number of less advantaged students by 90 by 2019/20, just shy of the combined tally of Eton and Westminster students admitted in 2017/18 – 94.Professor Martin Williams, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education at Oxford University, told Cherwell: “As Alan says, the University cares passionately about having a fair and accessible admissions system.“Our outreach spending has several purposes, including widening interest in higher education generally among children from primary age upwards. Presenting this spending simply as a cost per additional widening-participation student admitted to Oxford doesn’t reflect everything it achieves. For example, our work locally with IntoUniversity is dramatically improving entry to all universities among students from Oxford’s most deprived neighbourhoods.“We have a range of targets for improving access, with 40% of our UK undergraduates now coming from the groups we aim at through outreach. That said, and as Alan rightly points out, more needs to be done.“We will shortly be setting a further set of demanding targets to ensure Oxford education is open to talented students of all backgrounds. Alan’s article is a welcome contribution to the debate around this.“Our colleges are key to this and we welcome the commitment and innovation that colleges, including Alan’s, are showing on the vital question of diversifying our student intake.” MansfieldLady Margaret Hall ExeterHertford Colleges such as St John’s, Merton, and Balliol, place in the top ten in both tables.Warden of Wadham College, Ken Macdonald, is cited by Rusbridger as supporting contextualised admissions, which vary entry requirements according to students’ circumstances.Macdonald said: “We have to recognise that people in failing schools with difficult socio-economic backgrounds who get themselves in a position to make a competitive application have achieved something extraordinary.“I mean, someone who’s got an A and two Bs from a crap comprehensive in Hull is quite capable of being as clever, if not cleverer, than someone who got three A*s at Westminster… I think that’s just a kind of basic recognition that people still struggle with.”Rusbridger’s figures come after news of an Oxford graduate launching a nonprofit aimed at tackling the “structural inequalities” associated with both Oxford and Cambridge. Access Oxbridge hopes to connect 200 disadvantaged students seeking to apply to Oxbridge with current or former students at the two universities by the end of October.

To Oxford this is ‘challenging.’“For comparison, Winchester College (£40,000 fees) sent 24 students to Oxford – about one in three of its Year 13 cohort – in 2017; St Paul’s (£37,719) sends nearly 40.” Jesus CollegeSt Peter’s Source: Alan Rusbridger  St Hilda’sCorpus Christilast_img read more

Faculty senate calls for sanctuary campus designation of Notre Dame

first_imgIn a special session held Monday evening, the Notre Dame faculty senate passed a resolution calling for University President Fr. John Jenkins to declare Notre Dame a sanctuary campus for undocumented students. American Studies professor Jason Ruiz, who was part of the group presenting the resolution, said the resolution was “asking for Fr. Jenkins to keep doing what he’s doing.”“Fr. Jenkins, I think, has taken a national leadership position in terms of supporting and admitting undocumented students,” Ruiz said. “A lot of us who are involved in sort of a larger movement to support undocumented students are really worried about what’s going to happen with the next presidential administration.” The resolution from the faculty senate joins two other documents — a resolution from the Notre Dame student senate and a petition signed by more than 4,300 students and faculty — calling for Fr. Jenkins to declare Notre Dame a sanctuary campus. “[Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] (DACA) … is a set of federal protections in place that Notre Dame benefits from, in terms of being open about admitting and giving financial aid to undocumented students,” Ruiz said. “President-elect [Donald] Trump has vowed to terminate DACA, so a lot of us who work on these issues politically [and] professionally are in a serious state of concern and crisis over what we see as the impact of the impending termination of DACA.”While Fr. Jenkins has not declared Notre Dame a sanctuary campus, Ruiz said University policies currently in place are emblematic of such a campus.“Personally, I’m more interested in the policies than the terminology [of a sanctuary campus],” Ruiz said. “However, I push for sanctuary because that term has a salience and a political meaning and — for people that are Catholic — a spiritual and traditional meaning for our school as a Catholic institution. “For me, I pushed sanctuary because it makes a lot of sense for Notre Dame to say we push for sanctuary for the undocumented. The policies, however, that Notre Dame has in place are great, and I’m proud that Fr. Jenkins is already enacting them, and I’m extremely pleased with the fact that [faculty] senate would support them.”American Studies professor and member of faculty senate Annie Coleman said the debate on the resolution was fruitful. “It seemed like the senators that were at the meeting were strongly, generally, in support of our students and supporting the general notions of human dignity and justice and freedom and civil rights that this sanctuary movement kind of resonates with,” Coleman said. “Mostly we talked about the specific provisions at the end of the resolution, and what was the best way we could word those to express the support of undocumented students that were at Notre Dame and future undocumented students.”Coleman said a major goal of the resolution was to craft something that represented the consensus of the faculty. “I wouldn’t call this a radical document,” Coleman said. “It’s not advocating the breaking of laws, but it is establishing philosophical basis for support of the rights of students in the Notre Dame community and consistent support, no matter what policy changes might happen down the line.”English and digital humanities librarian Daniel Johnson, who was partially responsible for drafting the resolution, said the authors “stressed transparency and worked hard to strike a balance, signaling support for vulnerable students — both broadly and by way of specific provisions — without flouting the law.”“In the end, I think the senate feels it has adopted a widely-supported resolution, which, far from defying the university or its administration, encourages the administration to continue developing positions it has already articulated,” Johnson said in an email. “The resolution, in all phases of development, was viewed as a document in alignment with Notre Dame’s principles and traditions.” Tags: DACA, Faculty Seante, Sanctuary campuslast_img read more
