In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. If you’re looking for dividend stocks for a starter ISA, there are plenty of blue-chip options in the FTSE 100 right now.However, investors need to be careful where they’re looking for income. Over the past few weeks, some of the index’s top income stocks have cut their dividends to conserve cash in the coronavirus outbreak.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…With that in mind, here are three FTSE 100 dividend stocks I’d buy today for a starter ISA.FTSE 100 dividend stocksInsurance and pension savings giant Aviva (LSE: AV) is one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks.It does not look as if this is going to change any time soon. According to a recent trading update, the company’s solvency position is 175%. That’s including the payment of the final dividend for the year. Overall, the business has £2.4bn of excess cash.While it is too early to tell what impact the coronavirus outbreak will have on the business, management seems confident that the corporation can weather the storm. Aviva’s decision to pay its final dividend is notable when so many other companies have cancelled the payouts.As such, now could be a great time to snap up a share of this dividend stock a bargain price. It is currently dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 5. On top of this, the shares yield 12%.That’s why Aviva stands out as one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks.Asset management giantAnother one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks I’d buy today is Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN).As one of the largest asset and pension managers in the world, Legal’s size should help it pull through the current economic and market uncertainty relatively unscathed.So far, management has not commented on the group’s dividend sustainability. Nevertheless, the company reported a solvency ratio of 184% at the end of 2019, with £1.6bn of surplus cash.Most of Legal’s income comes from asset and pension management fees. So it has a steady income stream to fund operations.This suggests that the company’s dividend is not only secure but could return to growth next year when the economy recovers.Therefore, now could be an excellent time to buy the stock. It currently supports a dividend yield of nearly 10%. On top of this, the shares look dirt cheap. They’re dealing at a P/E of just 6. As dividend stocks go, this business looks highly attractive. Unique business Not all FTSE 100 dividend stocks are created equal. Phoenix Group (LSE: PHNX) for example, has a complex and uncommon business model.The largest closed life insurance and pension fund consolidator in Europe profits by managing pension funds and buying life insurance policies on the cheap.This provides the business with a steady stream of predictable income. The virus outbreak might have shut down large sections of the global economy, but pensions still need to be managed.Indeed, management has made the most of the opportunity offered by the recent decline in the share price by splashing out on shares in the business.Managers have spent nearly £250,000 buying stock in Phoenix over the past few weeks.These actions suggest that management believes Phoenix is a good investment at current levels. With a dividend yield of 7.6% on offer, it’s no surprise that insiders have been rushing to buy this FTSE 100 dividend champion. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Nedlloyd pension fund credits active management for 2015 performance

first_imgThe pension fund’s return portfolio returned 7.9% in total, with private equity, real estate and credit returning 20.2%, 5.6% and -1.6%, respectively.Dooren attributed the performance of the private equity holdings to the portfolio’s maturation.“Companies we invested in a decade ago are now being sold and have increased in value,” he added.The scheme’s 47% matching portfolio, consisting of government bonds, swaptions and liquidities, returned 1.3%.“This was largely thanks to the divestment of our €75m swaptions portfolio in February,” said Dooren, adding that the pension fund incurred a 0.3% loss on its government bonds.The Nedlloyds Pensioenfonds finished 2015 with a policy funding of 116.7%, which enabled it to grant its pensioners and deferred participants an indexation of 0.35%.In other news, the €3bn pension fund of technical research institute TNO returned 2.6% last year, generating positive results on all of its asset classes.Equity, fixed income and mortgages returned 8.2%, 0.6% and 6.4%, respectively, while real estate and private equity returned 7.7% and 15.3%.The pension fund said its overall annual return included a 0.6% return on its interest hedge, as well as a 1.5% loss on its 50% hedge of the main currencies.Hans de Ruiter, the scheme’s CIO, said the board decided to reduce the interest hedge from 50% to 40% at year-end, as the 30-year swap rate hit the preset trigger level of 1.5% as part of its dynamic hedging policy.As at the end of December, the TNO scheme had a policy coverage rate of 111.7%.The pension fund recently announced that it would grant an indexation of 0.05%. The €1.4bn pension fund of shipping company Nedlloyd has reported a 4.7% return for 2015, attributing the performance chiefly to the active management of its equity holdings.Frans Dooren, the scheme’s director, said the pension fund’s equity allocation – comprising one-third of its 53% return portfolio – returned 10.4%, outperforming its benchmark by 3.8 percentage points.He added that, over the last five years, the pension fund had outperformed its benchmark by 1.8 percentage points on average.Dooren said the scheme’s overall return outperformed the benchmark by 1.9 percentage points. last_img read more
