Carsten Stendevad, who resigned as CEO of Danish pension fund ATP in August, is to join US hedge fund giant Bridgewater Associates.Stendevad will work with the Connecticut-based firm for a year as part of a new “senior fellowship program”, Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio said in a letter to clients, which was also posted on LinkedIn.Dalio said the programme would “bring highly distinguished individuals into Bridgewater for a year to explore what our culture is like and lend their expertise and insights to our organization”.“We expect a limited number of such special people to join this program in the future,” he added. Stendevad left ATP last year after three years at the helm, citing family reasons. The DKK859bn (€115.6bn) pension fund named Christian Hyldahl as his successor in October.ATP uses a similar “all-weather” investment strategy to that employed by Dalio since he founded the hedge fund group in 1975. The model was in part inspired by Bridgewater, and the two organisations have worked together for more than a decade discussing multi-asset issues.ATP’s new CIO, Kasper Ahrndt Lorenzen, told IPE last year that the Danish pension’s multi-factor method was also indebted to the thinking of another US investment manager, AQR, and the academic field of “financial economics” more generally.In his letter, Ray Dalio also announced a shake-up of the group’s senior management, involving him stepping down as co-CEO of Bridgewater to focus on his role as co-chief investment officer.Dalio said his co-CEO role was always intended to be temporary, to aid the transition of Greg Jensen out of his chief executive position. Jensen is now co-CIO at the firm. Dalio’s own transition would be complete as of 15 April, he said.Jon Rubinstein, also co-CEO, is to leave after less than a year as part of the changes. Dalio said the pair “mutually agree that he is not a cultural fit for Bridgewater”. Rubinstein – a former Apple executive credited with helping create the iPod – will transition to an advisory role, Dalio said.Bridgewater president David McCormick is to become a co-CEO alongside Eileen Murray, who has been co-CEO since 2011.“Any organization run by a 60+ year old that says that it isn’t in transition is either naïve or disingenuous,” Dalio said. The hedge fund group – which now runs more than $160bn (€151.4bn) – is famous for its policy of “radical transparency”, based on Dalio’s founding principles. Bridgewater employees must be “extremely open, air disagreements, test each other’s logic, and view discovering mistakes and weaknesses as a good thing that leads to improvement and innovation”, according to its website.

Cove Point LNG (Image courtesy of Dominion Energy)US LNG operator Dominion Energy is to shut down its Cove Point liquefied natural gas export terminal in Maryland for planned maintenance this week.“The outage is scheduled to last about three weeks, contingent on weather and other conditions, and will consist of maintenance activities and inspections of equipment and systems involved in the production of liquefied natural gas,” Dominion said in a statement.Work will be done during two 12-hour shifts each day and will involve about 600 contractor personnel, the statement said.To remind, the Cove Point facility began producing LNG in March. The facility shipped its first commercial cargo of the fuel in April.The $4 billion Cove Point facility has a nameplate capacity of 5.25 mtpa. It became the second US shale gas-fed LNG export facility following Cheniere Energy’s startup at Sabine Pass in Louisiana more than two years ago.The LNG export facility produces the chilled fuel for ST Cove Point, the joint venture of Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation and Tokyo Gas, and for India’s GAIL under 20-year contracts.

This is another one of Petrobras’ measures aimed at cost reduction amid challenging market situation. Petrobras noted that the expected impact would not immediately affect the company’s cash for 2020, instead, it would be deferred over the next three years. The PAI and PDV 2019 have an additional estimated return (avoided personnel cost less the disbursement with compensation) of R$ 7.6 billion ($1.5 billion) by 2025, with the new enrollments estimated of around 3,800 employees. The first program PDV 2019 is for employees that retired under the INSS (Brazilian Social Security) until June 2020, the second PDV is specific to employees allocated to assets/units under divestment process, and the third PDV is exclusive for employees working in the company’s corporate segment. Petrobras said on Wednesday that its board had approved the creation of an Incentive Retirement Program (PAI), a new severance program aimed at employees eligible for retirement effective until 31 December 2023. The incentive adjustments of the PDV 2019 will generate an additional provision of R$ 1.29 billion ($247.2 million) in the 2Q 2020 financial statements related to the employees already dismissed and registered and the provisioning of new registrations will take place as enrols become effective. The board also approved adjustments for incentives to join the three Voluntary Severance Programs (PDVs) of the company. Brazilian oil and gas giant Petrobras has made plans to achieve additional cost reductions through its incentive retirement and voluntary severance programs, which will affect around 3,800 employees. It is also worth reminding that Petrobras earlier in April said that, due to the contraction of oil and oil products demand, it had decided to adopt new measures that comprise reduction of oil production, postponement of cash disbursement, and reduction of costs.
