However, yesterday’s reverse auction, which targeted the 7-15 year maturity band, did not face the same problems.The bank said it received offers to sell around £5.5bn of the bonds sought, and did purchase its targeted £1.17bn of securities.Commentators said the shortfall on Tuesday showed pension funds were short of these long-dated bonds, with one adding that investors were likely to offer at lower yields in subsequent auctions, having seen the lack of sellers.Toby Nangle, head of multi-asset allocation for the EMEA at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, said: “We anticipate that the failure to buy the full amount of Gilts required in future auctions will not be repeated on account of insufficient offers.“Given the news that [Tuesday’s] reverse auction went uncovered, active investors are likely to submit offers at yields well below market levels, perhaps even below 0%.”The Bank of England has said it will incorporate the £52m shortfall from Tuesday’s uncovered operation into the second half of its current six-month purchase programme.Details of these purchases will be announced on 3 November, it said.Nangle said that, by his calculations, there is not enough UK interest rate duration to let defined benefit (DB) pension funds match their actuarially estimated liabilities with fixed income assets, in spite of regulatory incentives to so do.“Put another way, pension funds are collectively short long-dated Gilts and, in re-initiating its QE programme, the bank has found itself delivering a short-squeeze – the effect of which is to increase pension fund deficits further,” he said.The Bank of England’s assertion in its recent inflation report that DB pension schemes would be able to maintain current levels of contributions despite fluctuations in deficits looks likely to be tested, he said.Shilen Shah, bond strategist at Investec Wealth & Investment, said Tuesday’s auction highlighted the fact that a number of investors at the long end of the curve are largely price insensitive and potentially unwilling to sell their Gilt holdings.“Given the narrow investment mandate of many liability-driven investors,” Shah said, “the alternative investment options to long-dated Gilts for these investors is very limited.” The Bank of England saw strong participation in yesterday’s government bond-buying spree as part of its quantitative easing (QE) programme, but Tuesday’s failure by the bank to meet its long-bond buying target could lead to negative yield offers from investors in future operations.The UK central bank’s reverse auction yesterday met with offers to sell medium-dated Gilts outstripping demand by almost five to one, after Tuesday’s long-bond reverse auction had been partly stymied by pension funds unwilling to sell.The bank announced last week that it aims to buy £60bn (€70bn) in UK government debt in the next six months as part of measures to boost the country’s economy.But on Tuesday, the bank failed to reach its £1.17bn target in its first attempt to buy Gilts, aiming for bonds with maturities of 15 years or more, with the operation failing to draw enough sellers.

I have heard of IOA and Federations Ambassadors, not of NADA. But Suniel Shetty is a fit a person for the job.” Vijender also said that he would be keen to make himself available for Tokyo Games as under the new rules, professional boxers were now allowed to compete in the Olympics.READ: Mayank Agarwal likely to replace injured Shikhar Dhawan in ODIs vs West IndiesREAD: Vijender Singh delighted with his 12-0 streak, thanks fans for support First Published: 11th December, 2019 00:08 IST SUBSCRIBE TO US COMMENT

Supermarket retail organisation Tesco has partnered with three UK health charities in order to develop a new workplace health programme for its 300,000 UK employees.Its ‘Little helps for healthier living’ partnership, which launched on 9 January 2018, will see Tesco liaise with the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, and Diabetes UK. The partnership has been designed to help the organisation understand what more it needs to do to support employees with their overall health and how it can remove the barriers to healthy habits.The five-year partnership will include research projects and policy development, which will aid in the creation of a new workplace health programme that will be rolled out to all employees in the UK. The partnership will aim to encourage and support sustainable, measurable changes in behaviour using a series of activities and campaigns targeted at reducing the risk of heart and circulatory disease, cancer and type two diabetes.This year, the focus on workplace health follows on from a series of four month-long campaigns that Tesco ran in 2017, around the pillars of nutrition, healthy body, and healthy mind. As part of these campaigns, Tesco has provided its UK employees with 10.5 million pieces of free fruit, 310,000 water bottles and snack boxes, health-based pay day deals and discounts, free health checks, and 7,000 blood pressure and diabetes checks. In 2017, the organisation also ran 950 mental health awareness workshops and had more than 7,000 employees completing online Mindapple courses, which trains employees on stress management, how to maintain concentration, develop innovation, and increase motivation.Dave Lewis, Tesco’s chief executive officer, personally communicated the new partnership to staff via an email and the organisation also shared videos highlighting details from its last health-related event.The partnership will include aligning Tesco’s communications campaigns with national health campaigns, training Tesco pharmacists to better support customers in the prevention and management of heart and circulatory disease, cancer and type two diabetes, sharing anonymised sales information to help develop insight on health policy and public health programmes, and fundraising for more health research.Lewis said: “I’m really excited by what we’re announcing. This is a unique partnership, which will bring together the skills and expertise of the UK’s leading health charities and the UK’s leading food retailer to help tackle the biggest health challenges facing the nation.“Together with the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, and Diabetes UK, we want to help people take small steps on their own terms to develop healthier habits. It’s about unlocking the energy, expertise and reach of our different organisations to develop little helps that make healthy differences across the whole country.”
