Shell Pension Fund – Should You Consider Your Transfer Options?

Screen Shot 2013-04-10 at 19.17.12

Hi John,

This short video may be of interest, specifically to Shell Employees.

http://www.aesadviser.com/services/qrops/

I have personally spoken with guys who have already started to take their Shell pension, and they have been most dismayed to learn about what they could have had, in the way of a cash equivalent transfer (into their own retirement trust) and the massive improvement that such a move heralds in relation to passing their fund to their wife and kids, in addition to the possibility for higher growth between now and retirement and higher levels of income at retirement, than if they were to stay in the Shell scheme. read more

Paddy Briggs elected as a Trustee of Shell Contributory Pension Fund

It has come to our attention that former Shell executive Paddy Briggs (above) has been elected to serve the thirty-three thousand Shell pensioners in the UK as a Trustee of the Shell Contributory Pension Fund for four years commencing January 2010. In addition to the elected members, the Board of Trustees has seven Shell appointees, including UK country chairman James Smith and Clive Mather, the Chairman of the Board.

The manifesto on which Paddy Briggs was elected was:

“I joined Shell Mex and B.P. in 1964 and retired from Shell in 2002 having worked in Shell UK Ltd, Shell International and operating companies in The Netherlands, Hong Kong and Dubai. The Shell that most of us once worked for is long gone – as the “reserves” scandal and the recent furore over top executive remuneration have shown. Such events, coupled with the deteriorating financial position of many pensioners (which was exacerbated this year by a derisory 0.9% annual pension increase) illustrate the extent of the changes in Shell and confirm the urgent need for a strong defence of SCPF member interests by the one elected MNT Trustee directors. I was “First reserve” in the elections in 2007 and hope to go one better this time around. If elected I will do my upmost robustly to represent the interests of the Pensioner constituency and all other beneficiaries of the fund.” read more

Shell to pump $5bn into pension in ’09

Global Pensions

NETHERLANDS– Royal Dutch Shell plans to inject US$5bn into its pension fund in 2009, chief financial officer Peter Voser told analysts yesterday.

In a presentation about the firm’s first quarter returns, Voser said the increased contribution amount, up from $1.6bn in 2008, is driven by regulatory and other legal requirements.

Voser said: “The sharp decline in the world markets at the end of 2008 has left pension deficits for many companies, and Shell is not immune from that.”  read more

Theories of rational behaviour are facing crisis

Second, Shell is to spend an extra $5bn-$6bn on plugging its pension deficit. But Shell is nowhere near insolvent and its pension fund has decades to play with. The deficit figure may be interesting information for investors. Why it should require the diversion of much-needed cash flow right now is a different question.

SHELL FACING A $45M EXPOSURE TO MADOFF FRAUD

DAILY EXPRESS

Thursday December 18,2008

OIL giant Royal Dutch Shell has emerged as one of the latest victims of the $50?billion (£33?billion) fraud by Wall Street trader Bernard Madoff.

The company said its Dutch pension fund had a $45?million exposure to the fraud but that the impact would “not be material” even if it had to write off the full amount.

Shell’s announcement came after the chairman of the U.S. watchdog, the Securities & Exchange Commission, admitted it had not followed up a string of tip-offs about Madoff’s activities. read more

Shell Pension Fund in Deficit an Investor in Madoff $50 billion fraud Fund?

I just saw on Dutch TV that a financial advisor claimed he KNEW that the Shell pension fund had invested in this Madoff fund in the recent past. He did not know whether they still are invested in this fund and phoned them. They would not say. Apparently they have borrowed 500 mln Euro at 4% with Fortis and bought into the Madoff fund which ‘guaranteed’ 7%. They also invested 500 mln Euro of ‘their own’ money. Since the Pension Fund had no comments, it presumably is true.

Shell Dutch Pension Fund Falls Below Legal Reserve Ratio

More pension funds in trouble

Friday 12 December 2008

Shell’s Dutch pension fund has fallen below the legal reserve ratio of 105% to 85%, the Telegraaf reports on Friday, quoting BNR radio. The claim is based on a letter to Shell employees, the radio station said.

A reserve ratio of 100% means the fund has sufficient assets to meet all its pension obligations.

The Shell pension fund regulation includes an agreement that if its reserves are below 105% for six months, the company must shore up its assets. Some staff also face higher premiums next year, the paper says. read more

Shell Live Chat Posting by a disillusioned Shell Pensioner

POSTING ON “SHELL LIVE CHAT” BY A SHELL PENSIONER, Thursday 11 December 2008

I just received a letter from Shell Pensionfund (dutch) that the coverage has dropped to 85% (Dutch legal limit is 105%). About a year ago it was around 170% I believe.

Some amateurs have been gambling with the fund and now there is a huge shortfall. I still have the letters of the past where they were congratulating themselves with the good management and strategies… And no doubt cashing in big bonusses. Why did nobody convert shares to bonds when there was this enormous surplus? That would be good husbandry. But like other Shell functions, it always has to be better and more. read more

Shell pension chief sees three sources of return

IPE.com: Shell pension chief sees three sources of return

“Shell made headlines last week with news it plans to consolidate €50bn of worldwide pension assets in Holland.”

Wednesday 14 Sept 2005

NETHERLANDS – Sijb Bartelma, chief investment officer of Shell Pensioenfonds, has explained why he thinks there are three sources of investment return.

The first is “strategic beta”, derived from exposure to market risk. The second is “strategic alpha” from the deviation from ‘plain vanilla’ asset mixes.

And the third he termed “operational alpha” – from what might be regarded as ‘stock picking’.

There was an unlimited supply of the first, while the third is “scarce” and a “kind of game” he told a meeting organised by the catering scheme Horeca at its new offices near The Hague yesterday. read more
