Patients thrive best when their environment and care far exceeds their expectations in the high quality, modern rehabilitation hospital setting at Everest.

Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals today cut yet another ribbon for the opening of its newest 36 private bed, 41,000 square foot, modern post-acute care rehabilitation hospital in Keller, Texas (N. Ft. Worth) at 791 S. Main Street. The hospital provides comprehensive rehabilitative services and around the clock registered nursing care to patients overcoming a variety of debilitating illnesses and injuries such as stroke and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, orthopedic and other chronic complex medical conditions.

Jay Quintana, Everest Rehabilitation’s CEO and co-founder said, “While our traditional hospital ribbon cutting festivities are dampened by the Coronavirus; we are ecstatic about opening our fourth identical, 36-bed rehabilitation hospital in Keller, Texas. Our newest Keller, TX location is centrally located in the heart of the fastest growing part of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. We look forward to providing exceptional post-acute health care to the communities of Keller, Southlake, Bedford, Ft. Worth, Westlake, Trophy Club, Roanoke, Grapevine, Watauga, Colleyville, North Richland Hills and beyond. Rehabilitation hospitals, like Everest, are extremely valuable to the communities we serve as we complete the continuum of care to get patients home. We whole-heartedly believe that patients thrive best when their environment and care far exceed their expectations in the high energy, high quality, modern hospital setting at Everest.”

Omar Jenkins, Everest Rehabilitation’s CFO and co-founder said, “We started looking for a site in this part of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex over four years ago and finally the perfect five acre site became available after an exhaustive two year search. We are excited to be able to provide one to one physical therapy care to our patients, five to seven days a week in this region. Our strong nurse to patient ratio contributes to optimal outcomes in our post-acute care, naturally lit hospitals.”

The hospital project represents a $23 million dollar investment in the community and includes numerous uncommon hospital details akin to a luxury hotel. The project includes spacious, state of the art physical therapy gyms, a large outdoor (park like) mobility courtyard for therapeutic use, a HydroWorx aqua therapy system, a fully furnished Assisted Daily Living apartment where a patient can practice “every day” activities, several family gathering areas, a large open dining hall, a real therapy car, in-house dialysis and an in-house pharmacy. Everest Rehabilitation hospitals provide interdisciplinary care with physician-led teams of therapists focused on improving a patient’s quality of life in a modern and naturally lit setting. Each identical 36-private bed Everest Rehabilitation Hospital is carefully designed to expand by 18 additional private rooms. The entire infrastructure (dining, kitchen, parking and mechanical) is already in place for every hospital to support the bed expansion. The Keller, TX physical rehabilitation hospital is a prime location for these room additions.

Leon Black offers more details on ties to Jeffrey Epstein – Update

Apollo chief executive raised the issue after questions swirled about his relationship with the late financier

Leon Black, the billionaire chief executive of Apollo, on Thursday, 29 October, offered a history of his ties to the late financier Jeffrey Epstein, his most detailed public account yet of a relationship that sparked renewed concern among his firm’s shareholders and fund investors in recent weeks.

Epstein was indicted last year on federal sex-trafficking charges involving underage girls.

On a call to discuss the private equity firm’s third-quarter earnings, Black said he wasn’t eager to speak publicly about his personal business, “but this matter is now affecting Apollo, which my partners and I spent 30 years building, and is also causing deep pain for my family.”

The Apollo chief reiterated that he paid Epstein millions of dollars annually to provide professional services to his family partnership and other family entities, “involving estate planning, tax, structuring of art entities and philanthropic advice” from 2012 to 2017.

He said there was substantial documentation of the work and that it was vetted by law firms, accounting firms and other advisers.

“There has never been an allegation by anyone that I engaged in any wrongdoing, because I did not,” Black said. “And any suggestion of blackmail or any other connection to Epstein’s reprehensible conduct is categorically untrue.”

Black also re-emphasised that Apollo never did business with Epstein, who died by suicide in jail in August 2019, the New York City medical examiner found.

The speech came after the three Apollo board members to who make up the New York firm’s conflict committee last week hired law firm Dechert to conduct an independent review into Black’s business with Epstein. Black said he asked for the review and is cooperating fully.

The moves were prompted by a New York Timesreport on 12 October that Black had paid Epstein at least $50m — more than previously known—in the years after Epstein was convicted in 2008 of soliciting prostitution from a teenage girl.

The article didn’t present any evidence that Black participated in inappropriate activity, but it sparked concern among some of Apollo’s public-pension fund investors and has weighed on the company’s shares.

Apollo’s shares rose briefly after Black’s statement but later fell about 1% in morning trading Thursday, 29 October.

Black, who co-founded Apollo in 1990, said he met Epstein around 1996 when Epstein was advising a number of prominent clients on estate-tax planning. The adviser had been named a trustee of Rockefeller University and served on the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission.

In his network were “luminaries I respected and admired, including several heads of state, heads of prominent families in finance, a US treasury secretary, accomplished business leaders, Nobel laureates, acclaimed academicians and noted philanthropists,” Black said.

The Apollo chief said he wasn’t aware of Epstein’s criminal conduct until it was reported in late 2006 that he was under investigation by state and federal authorities in Florida.

In 2007, Epstein signed a federal nonprosecution agreement, which has since been scrutinised, to resolve that investigation, pleading guilty the following year to two state prostitution counts. He spent much of his 13-month sentence outside prison.

After his release, Epstein went back to his financial-advisory work and once again began associating with prominent people from finance, academia, science, technology and government,  Black said. He said he didn’t learn the extent of the further allegations about Epstein’s conduct in 2018 until after he had already stopped working with him.

“Like many other people I respected, I decided to give Epstein a second chance,” he said. “This was a terrible mistake. I wish I could go back in time and change that decision, but I cannot.”

Whether Black’s explanation and the independent investigation will be enough to satisfy the firm’s jittery investors remains to be seen. Working to Apollo’s advantage is the fact that big pension funds, which typically need to invest large sums of money, have relatively few options for where to do so. And Apollo’s funds have continued to offer them strong returns.

Any defections among investors could theoretically threaten the firm’s goal set last year of reaching $600bn in assets over the next five years. For now, growth in the metric is chugging along. The firm said that assets climbed to $433.1bn in the third quarter, up from $413.6bn in the prior quarter and $322.7bn a year earlier.

Apollo chief financial officer Martin Kelly said the firm’s assets were durable even if the independent review of Black has an impact on fundraising. He noted that 60% of Apollo’s assets are in permanent-capital vehicles—pools of money that don’t need to be constantly replenished—and 90% are either in permanent-capital vehicles or funds with five years or longer from inception.

Kelly said the firm expects some of its investors will pause new commitments until the independent review has been completed. But even if Apollo raises no additional third-party capital this year, its fundraising of $18.4bn from third parties through 30 September already falls within its typical annual range of $15bn to $20bn, he said.

“We have incredibly long and durable relationships with our clients,” Apollo co-founder Josh Harris said on the call. “We’re deeply in contact with them, and obviously they are awaiting the results of the review Leon discussed.”

In response to an analyst question about how long the review would take, Apollo said it hoped the process could be completed by the end of the year, but that it was in the hands of the conflict committee.

Apollo also reported lower net income and distributable earnings for the quarter. It posted net income of $272.4m, or $1.11 a share, down from earnings of $363.3m, or $1.63 a share, a year earlier. The decline was primarily driven by a bigger loss attributable to noncontrolling interests.

Fee-related earnings were a bright spot, climbing 30% year-over-year.

Apollo invested a net $20.9bn across its various investment platforms during the quarter, a metric that reflects investments in vehicles beyond traditional drawdown funds.

The firm said it would pay a dividend of 51 cents per share versus 50 cents a share for the third quarter of 2019.

Alternative Investments/ESG: Brunel Allots £1.2B ($1.55B) Sustainable Mandate To Three Managers

https://platodata.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/alternative-investments-esg-brunel-allots-1-2b-1-55b-sustainable-mandate-to-three-managers.jpg

The Brunel Pension Partnership Limited (Brunel) launched a new Sustainable Equities Fund for local authorities’ pension funds.

The Brunel Pension Partnership has picked Ownership Capital, RBC Global Asset Management, and Nordea Asset Management to manage its new Sustainable Equities Fund of around £1.2 billion ($1.55 billion).

Brunel is one of eight pool Local Government Pension Scheme funds in the U.K.

The sub-fund mandate is on behalf of 10 local government pension scheme funds. They wanted a listed equity portfolio with a pronounced skew in favor of ESG considerations. The emphasis would be on companies with positive ESG performance rather than negative exclusions. (Institutional Asset Manager)

Multi-manager sustainable fund

Brunel shortlisted the three managers from 70 expressions of interest.

“The three managers we appointed share a broad investing style and a prioritization of sustainability, yet their approaches are also different enough to provide clients with the diversification they were looking for,” said David Cox, Head of Listed Markets at Brunel.

“We were delighted to find managers who share our understanding of sustainability, embedding it deep into their culture and investment processes,” says David Jenkins, Portfolio Manager for the Sustainable Equities Fund. “This portfolio, therefore, meets our aspiration to go beyond traditional Responsible Investing and ensure that the managers are engaged with the companies and are investing in them for positive reasons, not simply focusing on negative exclusions.”

Investment thesis

The portfolio is significantly underweight to the GICS energy sector. It also features an aggregate carbon intensity that is significantly lower than its benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Index.

The selected managers will integrate ESG considerations into their whole investing process. Their focus will not be to manage ESG risks – rather to positively seek out exposure to companies on a sustainable path.

In the process, they would also generate a suitable financial return.
