Retire with £1m? This is what I think you’ll need to save each month

first_imgRetire with £1m? This is what I think you’ll need to save each month Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. If you want to retire with a million in the bank from a standing start, it’s going to take some doing. However, with a strict savings and investing plan, reaching this target isn’t as hard as it first appears. Crunching numbers If you want to build a £1m nest egg, you would need to put away around £1,750 a month for 40 years in a savings account with an interest rate of 1%. That’s a tremendous amount of cash, and would be an impossible target for most people to meet. 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…Luckily there’s another way. By investing your money, you can significantly reduce the time it takes you to hit that £1m benchmark, and you won’t have to put away as much each month as well. Investing for the futureBy investing, you can achieve a much higher return on your hard-earned cash. For example, over the past three-and-a-half decades, the FTSE 100 has yielded a return of around 9% per annum for investors. That’s including income and capital growth. Compared to the 1% or less available on most cash savings accounts right now, this rate of return is highly attractive. While it’s difficult to predict what the future holds for the market in the short term, over the long run, the FTSE 100 should continue to produce attractive returns for investors. As more than 70% of the index’s profits come from outside the UK, it is a global index. This implies that if the global economy keeps growing, the FTSE 100 should also continue to head higher. Once again, it isn’t straightforward to tell what sort of growth the global economy will achieve in the next three-to-five years. However, over the next few decades, it’s highly likely the economy will be much bigger than it is today. Compound interest Using the same numbers from the example above, £1,750 a month invested in the FTSE 100 would grow to be worth £8.3m after four decades. That’s assuming an average annual return of 9%. To hit the £1m mark, monthly contributions of around £230 a month would be required for 40 years.  It’s vital to keep costs low as well if you want to save as much of your money as possible. Today, investors can buy an FTSE 100 tracker fund with costs as low as 0.1% per annum. This suggests total fees of around £25k over the 40 years of saving (included in the example above). However, picking a fund with an annual charge of more than 0.1% would have a much more significant impact. A yearly fee of 0.5% would cost £124k over the four-decade time frame. Meanwhile, a fee of 1% would cost a total of £230k. That’s why it’s essential to keep fees low if you want to make a million. If you find a low-cost FTSE 100 tracker fund, all you need to do then is sit back, relax, and watch your money grow (as well as keeping up the monthly deposits).

Forget Bitcoin and gold. I’d invest £10k in crashing FTSE 100 shares in an ISA today

first_img Buying crashing FTSE 100 shares before the prospects for the economy to improve could be seen as a risky move by many ISA investors. After all, the UK economy has contracted at an exceptionally fast pace of late, and there are no guarantees it’ll quickly recover over the coming months.However, the valuations on offer across the index and its recovery potential could make it a more attractive investing opportunity than other assets, such as gold and Bitcoin. As such, now could be the right time to invest £10k, or any other amount, in large-cap shares in an ISA.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…FTSE 100 risks and opportunitiesThe FTSE 100’s outlook includes significant risks, such as a continued rise in coronavirus cases, as well as political challenges, such as Brexit and the US election. Any of these uncertainties, as well as many others that are currently present, could cause the financial prospects for index members to deteriorate. They may also lead to weakening investor sentiment over the coming months.However, the presence of several major risks could also mean the index offers investing opportunities. Many large-cap shares currently trade on low valuations due, in part, to the economy’s uncertain future. Historically, buying high-quality businesses when they offer wide margins of safety has been a sound means of generating high returns in the long run.Therefore, building an ISA portfolio of stocks today may not necessarily produce strong levels of performance between now and the end of the year. However, for long-term FTSE 100 investors, today may represent a rare opportunity to access low valuations. These are likely to lead to higher returns over the coming years.Building a portfolioOne of the simplest and most effective means of utilising the FTSE 100’s recovery prospects to boost your returns is through a Stocks and Shares ISA. It offers tax efficiency, as well as low costs, that can make a real difference to your overall returns over the long run.Clearly, it may be tempting to include assets such as gold and Bitcoin in your portfolio due to their recent outperformance of the stock market. However, gold’s price could fail to maintain its recent momentum. That’s because investor sentiment towards riskier assets, such as equities, is likely to improve as the economic outlook strengthens.Similarly, Bitcoin could face a more challenging future than its recent gains suggest. Competition from other virtual currencies and limited prospects for it to replace traditional currencies may hold back sentiment towards the cryptocurrency.Therefore, with FTSE 100 valuations appearing to be very attractive at present, it may be an opportunity to obtain appealing risk/reward ratios relative to assets such as Bitcoin and gold. Doing so could catalyse your ISA’s returns and improve your long-term financial outlook. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Southern Kings stand up to the British & Irish Lions in Port Elizabeth

first_imgTuesday Jun 16, 2009 Southern Kings stand up to the British & Irish Lions in Port Elizabeth The Lions kept up their unbeaten record in South Africa as they came away with a 20-8 win against the newly formed Southern Kings, at the highly impressive Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.At over 35 000, the biggest crowd of the series so far came out to see a contest, and that is what they got, as this bruising encounter was perhaps the most physical of the tour to date.The Kings, who had only been together a week before taking to the field, were a mix of characters that included some ex Springboks, a few Bulls regulars, returning overseas players, and a couple of Springbok Sevens stars.From the outset it was clear that the massive Lions pack wasnt going to intimidate them, as they took it to them physically, and won the contest at the breakdown regularly.The tourists got their points by way of two unconvincing tries, the first from Ugo Monye and the second from referee Nigel Owens, who awarded a penalty try as the Kings pack disintegrated.Ronan OGara came on for the injured James Hook, contributing 10 points with the boot, as well as setting up the Monye try with a neat crosskick.The Kings though, looked the more organised unit as scrumhalf Francois Hougaard controlled from the base superbly, before he left the field injured, resulting in a the game changing in momentum slightly.Playing the match with 14 men for 60 minutes didnt help the home sides cause either. That said, Sevens star Mpho Mbiyozo was named Man of the Match for his excellent work around the park, at the breakdown, and for scoring their only try.Once again though, it was the Test experience of the Lions that got them home, as they hung in and saw off the pressure, resulting in the win.Looking at the way the Lions failed to assert their authority, as well as being dominated at the breakdown, is there in fact serious cause for concern?Or perhaps its quite simply a case of job done, bring on Durban for the first Test on Saturday.

Dutch studio Engel Architecten has recently completed this private residence in the wooded surroundings of Zeist, a small town in the centre of the Netherlands. To save as many trees as possible the layout of the house is carefully configured on the site. The colour and texture of the materials have been chosen meticulously to match the surrounding pines.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marcel van der BurgDesign. Adjacent to the Utrechtse Heuvelrug you will find the residential area Kerckebosch in Zeist. The house is situated on a corner lot, along the edge of the Hoge Dennen sub-plan. The sub-plan is characterized by the wooded environment that Zeist is known for, and is adjacent to a newly created open moorland landscape.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe visual quality plan prescribes homes with a modern look and a steep roof. To optimally position the house on the plot, the trees on the plot have been mapped. The goal was to maintain as many trees as possible and integrate them into the design. In order to maximize the view towards the garden and to create the largest possible backyard, the volume is situated along the main road, aligned to the building line.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe program is divided into four volumes, which are strung together by an elongated horizontal canopy. The two highest volumes accommodate the main functions of the house and are separated by a continuous skylight spanning two floors. This allows daylight to penetrate deep into the home, without direct sunlight entering the house. On the first floor, the two volumes are connected by a walkway, which is completely enclosed by the skylight. The awning connects the four volumes and provides sufficient space for covered parking, as well as space at the entrance and a covered terrace. In addition, the awnings ensure that sunlight does not directly enter the house during the summer and the house remains cool, in contrast to the winter months where the opposite is desired. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe front and rear facades of the two highest volumes as well as the garage are set at an angle of 6º. The regulations that came with the lot required the house to have a sloped roof, whereas the clients’ wish was to design a modern house with a flat roof. By tilting the facades, the facades can also be read as a roof.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgOpenings are placed in such a way that the relationship with the outside is strengthened and privacy is guaranteed. Deep placed window frames accentuate the facade openings on the upper floors. Deep reveals frame the view of the green surroundings, whilst at the same time provide a sense of privacy by optically increasing the distance between the inside and outside. The amount of glass on the north façade has been kept limited to prevent heat loss. At the rear of the houses, two large sliding doors offer the opportunity to open the facade to a large extent and thus connect the outside terraces the living area and dining room. The generation of power is provided by solar panels placed on the roof of the house. By carefully designing the roof edges and keeping them slightly lower at the rear, the solar panels are hidden from view without affecting the incidence of light on the solar panels.Save this picture!© Luuk KramerSave this picture!© Luuk KramerMaterials. The 3 oblique volumes are covered with ceramic slates from Petersen Tegl, type C91. The ceramic covers from which the majority of the facades have been built, perfectly match the wooded surroundings in terms of color and texture. By using a light color scheme, the surrounding trees draw beautiful shadows on the facades when the sun falls on the house. The wood storage and the garden walls are constructed from long-shaped Kolumba bricks from Petersen Tegl in the same color tone as the covers, to emphasize the monolithic character of the house. The two low garden walls accentuate the routing to the main entrance and create intimacy at the terrace on the southwest side of the house. The elongated awning, the frames, and the wooden finish of the plinth are fitted with semi-transparent lacquered wood in a red-brown color to counterbalance the sleek, distinct character of the house. The applied colors of both the covers and the wood match the wooded area where the house is situated.Save this picture!© Luuk KramerProject gallerySee allShow lessCais do Tojo Building / LADO Arquitectura e DesignSelected ProjectsCinema ètoile Cinémas Béthune / Olivier Palatre architectesSelected Projects Share Photographs Landscape Architecture Buro Mien Ruys Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Metaglas, Petersen Tegl Architects: Engel Architecten Area Area of this architecture project Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/949754/residence-hoge-dennen-engel-architecten Clipboardlast_img read more

During that period, Rhea ensured that Rajput took his medicines and never mixed them with drugs,” Maneshinde said.”Rajput’s cook and servant on June 8, 2020 saw the actor roll four joints (drugs) and keep it in a box. On June 14, when the actor was found dead in his room, the box was empty. This has been informed by the servant to the authorities,” he said.Maneshinde added that the CBI should probe the case and if it comes to the conclusion that there is no case, then it can file a closure report.”The complainant then has the option to file a protest petition. Quashing the FIR at this stage would be premature,” he told the court.The bench directed the lawyers to submit their written submissions and reserved its order.Next Storylast_img read more

Prison inmates in NY to produce 100K gallons of hand sanitizer weekly

first_imgNodar Chernishev/iStock(ALBANY, N.Y.) — As cleaning supplies and anti-bacterial cleansers fly off the shelves amid the increase of COVID-19 cases, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that prison inmates are producing 100,000 gallons of hand sanitizer in response to price-gouging retailers.“To solve this problem, the state is producing and deploying hand sanitizer to high impact areas as well as schools, the MTA and other government agencies because you can’t get it on the market and the product that is available is very expensive,” Cuomo said at a press conference on Monday.“The biggest problem we have in this situation is fear, not the virus itself, and I’m once again reminding everyone to focus on the facts because the facts do not warrant the level of anxiety we are seeing,” said Cuomo.To combat this issue, Cuomo, along with Corcraft, the state’s Department of Corrections “brand name” for prison-produced products, teamed up to create a hand sanitizer called “NYS Clean” that will be available to residents for free and distributed to impacted communities as well as state agencies like schools and the MTA.As of Tuesday, New York has 148 patients with confirmed cases of novel coronavirus. Globally there has been over 4,000 deaths from the virus.The governor said in a press release that some “retailers are charging approximately 10 times what major retailers charge for hand sanitizer.”“Between increased demand and the price gouging currently taking place in the market, there is a very real need for hand sanitizer for New York residents. DOCCS is proud to meet the governor’s call to action and do our part in stemming the spread of COVID-19 across the state,” according to the state’s acting commissioner, Anthony J. Annucci.The governor said 100,000 gallons of the alcohol-based hand sanitizer will be produced every week.Prison advocates are calling out the governor and the state’s correctional department for subjecting the prisoners to work that equates to “slave labor.”“Incarcerated people in New York have always been forced to produce essential products for state agencies. These individuals work for less than a dollar a day under threat of punishment — including solitary confinement — if they refuse,” said Tina Luongo and Adriene Holder of The Legal Aid Society.“This is nothing less than slave labor and it must end,” they said.“A central part of prison rehabilitation is job training and skill development, and this is part of that existing program that’s existed for years,” according to Rich Azzopardi, a senior adviser to the governor, in response to the “slave labor” accusations.The mission of Corcraft, which is an entity within the state’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, is to “prepare offenders for release through skill development, work ethic, respect and responsibility,” according to the Corcraft Products website.At the Great Meadow prison in New York, inmates there generally make supplies like “janitorial, personal care and vehicle maintenance chemicals,” according to the Corcraft website.The various products made at the 12 other state prisons — like eyeglasses — can only get sold to “government agencies at the state and local levels, schools and universities, courts, fire departments, police departments and certain not-for-profits.”“It would be even more shocking if prisons and jails were to deem this Corcraft product ‘contraband’ and deprive incarcerated New Yorkers from possessing effective hand sanitizer because of the alcohol content,” The Legal Aid Society said. “The same individuals who produce this product should not be prohibited from using it.”Request for comment from the state’s Department of Corrections was not immediately returned.
