“Consistent and ongoing dialogue with companies is fundamental to our active ownership approach, and we engage with companies throughout the year to effectively influence and change behaviours,” he said.LGIM voted against 118 pay resolutions at UK companies in 2016, it said. In addition, it has backed the Hampton-Alexander Review, a government-endorsed project to encourage listed companies to have at least a third of leadership roles occupied by women by the end of 2020.On ESG, another core area of activity for LGIM, the group said it had raised sustainability-related topics at 47% of its 500 company meetings during the year.LGIM has vowed to vote against board chairs of companies that do not “embrace the transition to a low carbon economy”. In its Future Funds range – which includes the equity default option for HSBC’s defined contribution scheme – LGIM said it would divest from companies that did not adopt low carbon strategies.Sadan added that “the combined approach of ranking, engaging, voting, and divesting sends a powerful message that investors are serious about tackling this issue”. Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) stepped up its activist role last year by opposing resolutions at more than half of the companies in the FTSE World indexes.LGIM, the world’s ninth-biggest asset manager according to IPE data, voted against at least one resolution at 56% of company shareholder meetings during 2016, according to its latest corporate governance report. In 2015, this figure was 52%.The group’s equity funds are predominantly passive, but LGIM said it did not abstain from any vote at UK listed companies. For its UK holdings, LGIM voted against resolutions at 23% of companies, compared with 18% in 2015.Sacha Sadan, director of corporate governance at LGIM, said the group had strengthened its voting policies on remuneration, board composition, and diversity during last year.

Picture: Stewart McLeanHOMES in the handful of Far North suburbs lucky enough to be near a railway station may not fare the best in the capital growth stakes but in terms of rental returns, they are an investor’s dream.Cairns City units increased in value by 8.2 per cent over the year to July, making it the best performing railway suburb across the Cairns region, and the only to record an increase in 12-month growth, according to a recent CoreLogic reportRental yields in the CBD, Cairns North, Edmonton and Gordonvale were between 6.1 and 7.2 per cent, almost double that in Brisbane which currently sits at 4.4 per cent.Rents increased across the region over one year and five year period, except for in Gordonvale where the median rental price for houses was 2.1 per cent lower than one year ago.Since 2013, however, rents climbed 4.4 per cent in the town.While this may make railway suburbs more or less attractive for Far North buyers, Elite Real Estate Services Karl Latham said in all his years in real estate “it has never been a factor of people’s decision to buy a property”. “The reason is that there are no stations in suburbs. It has always baffled me as in my opinion it would certainly make sense to capitalise the rail line on the southern corridor with stations at White Rock, Bentley Park, Edmonton and Gordonvale and maybe even on the northern side at Aeroglen, Stratford, Freshwater and Redlynch,” he said. “This would certainly lift the congestion off the main roads and help to lift property values along these routes.“For people living in the city for the train station, I can’t see the day that it will happen as we are too isolated for it to be viable to commute this way, to head south by train to Townsville is six hours away. It takes four hours to drive it and it’s usually a clear run with very little traffic.”A CoreLogic spokesman said: “While being close to transport and amenities can increase incentive, we don’t consider these suburbs to be performing in a certain way on the basis of being ‘railway town’.” Babinda (house) Gordonvale (house) Median value $322,486Yearly growth -3.0%3-year growth -1.1%5-year growth 8.6%Median Rents $380Rental change (1 year) 1.3%Rental change (5 years) 15.2%Rental Yield 6.1% Cairns North (Unit) FACTBOX Median value $241,442Yearly growth -0.7%3-year growth 1.7%5-year growth 13.6%Median Rents $335More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days agoRental change (1 year) 1.5%Rental change (5 years) 19.6%Rental Yield 7.7% Median value $310,544Yearly growth -3.3%3-year growth -4.8%5-year growth 10.5%Median Rents $355Rental change (1 year) -2.1%Rental change (5 years) 4.4%Rental Yield 6.1%

City’s elite development squad coach Patrick Vieira took his team off the pitch when the 19-year-old French midfielder made the allegations after being sent off just before half-time. Press Association Sport understands the move was supported by City officials and Vieira has received the backing of anti-discrimination network FARE. Croatian club HNK Rijeka have strenuously denied any of their players racially abused Manchester City’s Seko Fofana in a friendly. However, Rijeka have issued a statement in which they dismiss the allegations. “Rijeka clearly and unequivocally rejects any possibility that the players at the match against Manchester City participated in assaulting the rival players on racial, religious or ethnic grounds,” said a statement on the club’s website. “We want to point out the fact that we mentioned at the game we had six players from the Nigeria squad, players who live and train together with our other players, who learned the Croatian language and who have never experienced any discomfort by team-mates – as they themselves can attest. “We also want to point out that Rijeka, in co-operation with FARE, supports a campaign against racism and strongly condemns any incident of its kind. “Because of this, we are surprised by the unpleasantly harsh and baseless accusations of which we are accused and that we completely reject.” Ranko Buketa, who was in charge of Rijeka’s team on Tuesday, accused City of trying to divert attention away from Fofana’s actions which led to his red card. “It looks like a move which is trying to hide a very ugly foul by the Manchester City player that resulted in exclusion, followed by a hasty and illogical decision of the coaching staff to withdraw the team from the field,” he told the club website. “Such an abrupt decision surprised us as it was made by responsible people at a respectable club like Manchester City.” Piara Powar, executive director at FARE, felt Vieira, a Senegalese-born former France international, did the right thing. “We are not, in the short term, able to stop this sort of incident happening but to have someone like Patrick Vieira, with his status, do this makes the message very clear,” Powar told Press Association Sport. “The message it sends out is categorical. It is just the sort of thing which will create change. “We have got to challenge any situation in that regard. “Rijeka are professing puzzlement as to why the team were taken off but I don’t think Patrick would have done that without good cause.” Powar said his organisation, which is active in more than 40 European countries, would be raising the matter with FIFA and he urged City to do the same. “If it was bad enough to take the team off I would hope they would make a complaint,” he added. It is not the first time City’s players have been involved in such incidents. CSKA Moscow were ordered by UEFA to close part of their stadium after midfielder Yaya Toure was racially abused during a Champions League match in October. Porto were fined £16,700 in April 2012 after their supporters directed racist chants at Toure and striker Mario Balotelli, who has since left the club, during a Europa League tie. Youth team striker Devante Cole, son of former Manchester United and Newcastle forward Andy, was racially abused by players and supporters during a UEFA Youth League match against Atletico Madrid in February. Vieira’s decision to lead his side off the pitch is not the first time players have taken direct action in the face of abuse. Midfielders Kevin Constant and Kevin Prince Boateng both walked off with their team-mates in separate incidents while playing for AC Milan and Watford Under-19s took similar action during a match in Italy in December. There has been no response so far from either FIFA or the Croatian Football Association and City are still considering the next course of action. Press Association
Press Association Steven Gerrard has backed Liverpool to bounce back from last season’s end-of-season heartbreak and mount a serious title challenge once again. And the 34-year-old insists that Brendan Rodgers’ side believe that they can go one better than their 2013-14 second-place finish and win their first league title in 24 years. Speaking about the last season’s campaign and the upcoming season, Gerrard told the Daily Mirror: “With 10, 12 games to go, people were maybe expecting us to drop away a lot sooner than we did. But we handled the pressure superbly well and we played some unbelievable football. “We are a good team, with a good manager, that is getting stronger. The confidence is rising in the dressing room and we have got to show that we are the real deal. “We are not there to just make the numbers up. There is genuine belief that we can be in there. “Good sides don’t just have one good season. They keep trying to fight for what they want. Chelsea do it. Manchester City do it. Manchester United have had a one-off bad season and they will be back. Arsenal have made a couple of really good signings. “The league is going to be very, very tough but we know we are one of the sides that has got a genuine chance of winning it. I believe that.” Luis Suarez played a major role in Liverpool’s second-place finish last season but the Reds will, of course, be unable to count on his goals and man-of-the-match performances after he joined Barcelona earlier this month. While conceding that Suarez’s departure is a massive loss, Gerrard insists that there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic in the red half of Merseyside. The Reds led the Barclays Premier League by five points with three games to go in April, but a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at Anfield – in which Gerrard slipped to gift Demba Ba the opening goal – saw them pipped to the title by Manchester City. Gerrard, who retired from international football after the World Cup to prolong his Anfield career, is ready to put last season’s disappointment behind him and lead Liverpool in their first Champions League campaign since the 2009-10 season. He added: “Of course it (winning the title) will be difficult, it would be difficult with Luis and it will be without. All the other teams will grow and improve in the summer. “But the reason I have that belief and confidence is because of the experience of all the other games last year, and also the manager has been here for a bit longer, and because of the signings he is making. I’m pretty confident we can get right involved in it again.” Gerrard’s now infamous slip against Chelsea became the defining moment of Liverpool’s season and was followed quickly by England’s failure at the World Cup. And Gerrard admitted the past few months have been hard to stomach. He added in several national newspapers: “It’s probably been the worst three months of my life. “I’ve seen it a few times. I don’t have to watch something like that to go through the pain again and again and again. “I’ve been through the pain in the dressing room after and in the weeks and months since. I just stumbled across it. It didn’t hide away. I have TVs in my house and I read papers. There is social media. “When something like that happens you have to face up and be man enough to take it on the chin. Accept it happened. You can’t change it. “I haven’t lost my man at a set-piece. I haven’t missed a penalty. I haven’t made a bad pass or a mistake. That’s why it was cruel. Every single person on the planet slips at some point in their life, whether it is on a set of stairs, on the floor or whatever. “For me, it happened on the pitch at a really bad moment. But over the course of 38 games a lot happens for you and against you and that determines whether you win the league or not. That moment happened at a crucial time and I have to face that. And I will do.” England’s group-stage exit in Brazil was quickly followed by Gerrard’s international retirement and he revealed that Liverpool commitments played a major part in his decision. “To be fair to Brendan (Rodgers), when I had the chat with him, he said that if you want to carry on for England, I can tailor your Liverpool games,” he said. “When he said that, it made me go 100 per cent with my decision because I don’t want my Liverpool games to be tailored. I still want to be available, I want to be fresh and play at a high level for Liverpool for certainly one more season.”
