LPs Eyeing Classic Inflation Hedges Along With Venture and Buyout FundsROWAYTON, Conn., April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A new survey from Eaton Partners, one of the largest capital placement agents and fund advisory firms, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp. (NYSE: SF), suggests institutional investors have both the appetite and budget to make additional private market investments at this time. The latest “Eaton Partners LP Pulse Survey” questioned leading limited partners (LPs) from around the world, over the past several weeks, about their views on alternative investments. Key findings include: 52% say private market investments look more attractive, as public market valuations soar. Three-quarters (75%) have enough budget/capacity for new investment ideas compared to 21% who say they are almost fully allocated for 2021. Only 4% have already spent their entire 2021 budget. LPs are planning to increase exposure to several strategies this year, including venture (61%), buyout (61%), and growth equity (54%). Most investors believe the best private market opportunities can be found in North America (73%) versus Asia (13%), Europe (12%), or South America (2%). When it comes to seeking out fresh ideas, 85% report their interest in emerging and first-time managers is about the same, or even greater, than before.77% are at least somewhat concerned about inflation, and many LPs are planning to use classic inflation hedges this year, including metals and mining (56%), oil and gas (50%), and farmland (31%). “Having navigated the COVID-19 pandemic for the past year, we find that many LPs are seeking additional exposure to private capital markets, and are being very deliberate when it comes to how they allocate investment dollars,” noted Jeff Eaton, Partner at Eaton Partners. “Institutional investors are making subtle but clear adjustments as inflation becomes an increasingly worrisome threat and real assets become much more desirable.” While inflation may be a growing concern, COVID-19 appears to be less of a threat to business going forward. Nearly three-quarters (70%) of survey respondents expect a widespread return to the office by the end of this year, and 83% believe any changes in fund marketing activity caused by the pandemic are temporary. “As the pace of vaccination picks up and the global economy shows increased signs of recovery, the environment for fundraising continues to improve,” said Peter Martenson, Partner at Eaton Partners. “We envision a healthy combination of in-person and virtual meetings as the year progresses. In either format, investors will pick and choose their spots, so it’s vital that fund managers be able to stand out and differentiate themselves in what’s shaping up to be a crowded marketplace.” Click here to view the full survey results.

Press Conference - Freedom Plaza, DC EASRCC Local 197 Council Representatives Kunta Bedney and Francisco Esparza showing their support at the Press Conference in DC EASRCC Local 197 Council Representatives showing their support at the Press Conference in DC The District of Columbia, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters joined the Catholic Labor Network on Wednesday, April 14th for a Press Conference at Freedom Plaza in the District of Columbia to announce the release of a new Wage Theft Report. “The Construction Industry in the District of Columbia features an extensive underground sector in which workers are misclassified as independent contractors or paid in cash off the books,” said Clayton Sinyai, Executive Director of the Catholic Labor Network. "Denying the public necessary tax revenue and denying workers the protection of wage and hour laws." The Report, The Underground Economy and Wage Theft in Washington D.C’s Commercial Construction Sector, found that nearly 50% of all construction workers surveyed by the Catholic Labor Network and their partners were part of the underground economy. They also found that 47% of those surveyed received no tax deductions in their paychecks, or are strictly paid cash. This study was conducted with extensive surveys and interviews with construction workers in Washington DC, including workers being paid less than minimum wage, payroll tax missing from payment, and overtime violations. "This is not the first study, this is the third that I am aware of and all end with the same results," said Robert Burns Regional Manager for the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters. "Workers are being exploited here in the DC Metro area and it's time for it to end." Speakers at the press conference included Sinyai, Burns, Handley Farah & Anderson Lawyer Matthew Handley, Kalmanovich Initiative & Georgetown University Professor Joe McCartin, The Baltimore DC Building Trades Steve Courtien, Washington Lawyers Committee Dan Katz, Ricardo Gallardo of LiUNA, and DC Jobs with Justice Organizer Nikko Bilitza. The press was hosted by the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters and their Local Union 197. It is part of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America’s Construction Industry Tax Fraud Week of Action. Similar educational events are taking place across the United States and Canada. You can visit EveryoneIsAVictim.com to learn more. "These issues are severe and take advantage of the most vulnerable in the construction industry as well as the average everyday taxpayer," said Communication Director for the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters, Frank Mahoney.

Industry leaders Neste, Renewable Energy Group and the National Biodiesel Board affirmed the significant opportunity for biofuels in a carbon constrained future compared to electrification and other approachesWashington, DC, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Low-cost, low-carbon but high greenhouse gas reducing impact describes the opportunity for using biobased diesel fuel as helping achieve climate change. Biofuels are a ready solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and tackling climate change. The virtual session April 13, 2021 hosted by the Diesel Technology Forum is now available in a recorded version for online viewing. “Diesel is the power of work and it moves 97 percent of large Class 8 trucks and bigger applications like locomotives, marine vessels and construction equipment. Unlike passenger cars, where there are zero-emissions options available today and consumers are warming to them, the promise of zero-emissions solutions in heavy-duty sectors is in the future. Today, more efficient diesel engines coupled with very low carbon biobased diesel fuels like renewable diesel and biodiesel, can do quite a lot to reduce emissions immediately,” said Ezra Finkin, session organizer and moderator, and also Policy Director for the suburban Washington, DC-based Diesel Technology Forum, an educational association representing diesel engine and equipment makers, suppliers and fuels interests. For those that believe that electrification is the only strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, this session provided important new perspectives on how to think about greenhouse gas reduction timelines and the broad suitability of biobased diesel fuels to be used immediately across wide sectors of the economy. And, through discussion of case studies of public and private fleets in California, demonstrated the proven success of biobased diesel fuels in real-world applications. “The way we have been thinking of greenhouse gas emissions is not quite accurate. What we emit today stays in the atmosphere long after it has been emitted. Waiting for the promise of zero-emissions solutions actually makes the problem worse as it does nothing to address cumulative emissions. When it comes to solutions to reduce emissions from the heavy-duty sector, we should rely on biobased diesel fuel to do the most to reduce these emissions today as zero-emissions solutions in some applications are planned for the future,” noted David Slade, Executive Director, Biofuel Technology and Services - Renewable Energy Group, Inc. As policymakers move to tackle the climate change challenge on a local, regional and national level, a mix of near-term and longer-term strategies for the transportation sector are emerging. While all-electric and zero emissions strategies may dominate headlines, it is increasingly clear that they may not be available or suitable for all sectors in the immediate future. “Biodiesel and renewable diesel are low carbon and low-cost fuels that are helping to reduce emissions today from trucks, buses and large equipment. Both are derived from waste feedstocks like vegetable oils and animal fats and their use does not require expensive investments in refueling or recharging infrastructure or the purchase of new trucks or engines. Diesel engines old and new can use these fuels to deliver big benefits. The market for these fuels has grown as the U.S. consumed about 3 billion gallons of biobased diesel fuel in 2020 and the market is set to double by 2030,” highlighted Jennifer Weaver, OEM Market Development Manager - National Biodiesel Board. “Fleets are already adopting these very low carbon and very low-cost fuels to realize big benefits. Relative to zero-emissions solutions, these are low-cost options available today that do not require fleets to replace trucks and engines with expensive new powertrains or rely on recharging networks. The City of Oakland, CA since 2015 has been using renewable diesel in all of its fleet of heavy-duty trucks, equipment and generators to realize 3,400 tons of greenhouse gas emissions reduced each year. Other trucking fleets that rely on heavy-duty diesel engines, including Titan Freight and Argent Materials, are achieving low carbon and low-cost benefits of renewable diesel fuel without sacrificing power and performance needed to get the job done. Policies that encourage the use of low carbon fuels are technology neutral solutions that incentivize the right fuel for the right application,” noted Carrie Song, Vice President, Renewable Road Transport, North America - Neste. The use of renewable biofuels in diesel vehicles and equipment is an effective greenhouse gas mitigation strategy that every public and private fleet should have access to right alongside other solutions. The nature of tackling the climate challenge, its urgency and complexity, dictate that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Investments in renewable diesel and biodiesel production are expanding rapidly both from conventional biofuel producers as well as the existing petroleum refining sector, signaling a strategy of greater access to low carbon fuels nationwide that will enable more governments and private fleets viable options to meet the near-term climate challenge head-on. # # # About the Diesel Technology Forum The Diesel Technology Forum is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of diesel engines, fuel, and technology.

Everything you need to know ahead of tonight’s knockout tie
Liverpool must pull off another famous European comeback at Anfield tonight if they are to knock out Real Madrid and reach the Uefa Champions League semi-finals. A 3-1 defeat to Zinedine Zidane’s Real in Spain means Liverpool have it all to do in the second leg of their quarter-final tie - though Mohamed Salah’s away goal will give the Reds hope of setting up a last-four battle with Chelsea. It has been a disappointing season for Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions, with injuries and a loss of form leaving Liverpool likely to end the season empty-handed.
