£100 a month to invest? I like the stock market for wealth generation

first_img Image source: Getty Images. £100 a month to invest may not seem like a huge sum, but it’s a great starting point. If you can afford to put £100 a month away regularly, I say go for it.Start investing when you’re young and the greater chance you have of serious wealth generation as even a small (but regular) investment can work wonders when it comes to accumulating a future nest egg.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…Economic senseThe stock market has a long track record of making people rich. It’s also at the heart of our economy with pension funds, investment portfolios and insurance companies investing large pools of wealth in the financial markets to beat inflation and safeguard future returns.Nowadays, online brokers like Hargreaves Lansdown and Interactive Investor make it simple for ordinary investors like you and I to invest our hard-earned cash in shares.I think a Stocks and Shares ISA is the easiest starting point, but if you’re feeling confident, then a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) is also straightforward.Accumulating wealthIf you were to invest £100 a month in stocks with an average annual return of 7%, then within 20 years you could accumulate over £52k.The FTSE 100 index has averaged 7% over the past decade, so even investing in a simple tracker fund could help you realise that goal.By investing in FTSE 350 companies with decent dividend yields, and reinvesting your gains, along with your monthly contributions, this goal could easily be exceeded.A monthly £100 contribution, topped up by annual dividends would enjoy a compounding effect, gaining interest on your interest. This means at an average annual return of 10%, you could achieve over £75.5k in the same time frame.Increase this to a 40-year period and at an 11% return, you could attain more than £867k from your £100 a month.So as you can see, big wealth generation isn’t just achievable but doesn’t even require huge lump sums.The Warren Buffett wayBillionaire investor Warren Buffett has been advocating the merits of the stock market for decades now. His personal style is value investing, first introduced to him by Benjamin Graham. The principle of value investing is to buy shares in companies that are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value. That means buying shares in a company that may be currently out of favour, but has enough good things going for it that it’s likely to bounce back and recover.This may sound simple, but it’s easier said than done and it’s vitally important that research is carried out into a company before you commit to buying shares in it. Studying the company’s annual report and trading updates is a great place to begin, as you can learn a lot from these documents and get a clearer picture of where the business is at.If you can afford to start investing, then what’s stopping you? The longer you can put your money to work, the more likely you’ll be to achieve future wealth generation or even millionaire status.

Gift of music campaign raises £41,000 for Britten Sinfonia

first_img Howard Lake | 4 September 2014 | News Gift of music campaign raises £41,000 for Britten Sinfonia  41 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Results to dateIn its first year, Musically Gifted has raised £41,000, including 14 £1,000 donations. The average gift has been £81, and 350 donors have made one or more gifts.The campaign is extending Britten Sinfonia’s brand. Some donations in the £500 to £1000 range have come from people in cities around the world in which the orchestra has never performed. The orchestra is also learning more about the interests of their supporters, as donors choose which type of musical composition they would like to support, and which composer.Harriss has noticed that the campaign is attracting slightly younger donors compared to previous fundraising appeals.Artists themselves are getting behind the campaign, with some engaging well with donors on Facebook and Twitter. Indeed, the list of composers is evolving with new ones being added from time to time. Since some people have given to more than one composition, the orchestra is mailing donors with details of new compositions available for funding in the hope of a repeat gift.Musically Gifted is not a crowd funding campaign, so there is no deadline or urgency to give.You can listen to sample works from the composers whose work is available to support e.g. Britten Sinfonia’s Musically Gifted fundraising campaign has raised £41,000 in its first year. The orchestra is inviting people to make a donation or to buy a gift for someone which will fund a new music composition.Donors can give from £10 to £1,000, in return for which they will receive one or more benefits. All donors will get their name included in the full score of the work being supported.In addition, there is a sliding scale of benefits, similar to crowdfunding campaigns.Donor benefitsThere are six tiers of giving via Musically Gifted. Benefits for donors, or rather incentives to donors, are:£10 – a big thank you on Facebook and Twitter, a thank you/gift card, plus emails updating you on the evolution of the piece£50 – a copy of the front page of the score, signed by the composer£100 – a copy of the entire score, signed by the composer£250 – two complimentary tickets to the world premiere, and a private reception at the world premiere£500 – an invitation to attend the rehearsals of the chosen work£1000 – crediting as Principal Commissioner in the score and programme, and an invitation to afternoon tea with Britten Sinfonia players and the composerThere are also opportunities for those who wish to give more. For example, a donation of £5000 will open up exclusive benefits.Will Harriss, Development Director at Britten Sinfonia, came up with the idea. Through its Catalyst scheme, Arts Council England is match-funding donations by individuals up to a total of £50,000 in the first year.He described the campaign as “one of the few places you can buy some new music for someone else [at a price virtually anyone can afford]”. He acknowledged that it was similar to the virtual gifts catalogue such as OxfamUnwrapped and Archie the goat.In the past, he explained, commissioning new music was the preserve of wealthy patrons. Now, Musically Gifted offered a more democratic approach, opening up this method of support for music composition to all music-lovers.There was some concern that, by developing this new fundraising product, the chamber orchestra might cannibalise existing donation streams, but that does not appear to have happened. Indeed, many existing supporters who have given to the campaign have given substantially more than they had done in previous standard appeals. Others had come to concerts for years, but had not given to traditional fundraising asks, but have been inspired to give in response to this one. Advertisement Tagged with: arts Arts Council England music virtual gifts A Tenner for a Tenor campaignMusically Gifted has been built following the experiences of an earlier ‘fundraising product’ campaign. In 2010 the orchestra launched a nine-month campaign called ‘Tenner for a Tenor’. The aim was to raise funds for a commission from British composer Jonathan Dove for a chamber ensemble and solo tenor voice.This was the orchestra’s first attempt at crowd funding. There was just one level of giving – £10, hence the name. Donations were accepted online, via text messages, and mail. Every donor would have their name listed on the full score.The campaign used humour, with a picture of a sausage on the front of the leaflet, emphasising that they were asking for just “the same price as 4 lb of sausages”.It raised over £3,000, excluding a substantial initial gift which helped them set up the campaign. The average gift was around £12.80. Over the 300 or so donors, 75% were new donors to the orchestra.Harriss said that this pilot campaign “demonstrated an appetite amongst audiences to play a part in helping to create the music that they hear on stage, provided that the price is right”.He added: “Having tested the principles of crowd-funding, it is now firmly embedded within the orchestra’s fundraising strategy, to the extent that over the coming 3-5 years a majority of Britten Sinfonia new music commissions are likely to be funded in whole or in part) this way”.

Nigerian news site deliberately blocked, expert report confirms

first_img News News NigeriaAfrica Condemning abusesOnline freedoms ImpunityInternetFreedom of expression February 8, 2021 Nigerian news site deliberately blocked, expert report confirms This latest form of censorship has come to light as the Nigerian authorities are increasingly using the fight against disinformation as a pretext for draconian legislation.According to a full technical analysis by Qurium, a foundation based in Sweden that specializes in digital security and defending investigative journalists, Peoples Gazette has been inaccessible since 26 January because Nigeria’s four main mobile Internet operators – MTN, GIo, Airtel and 9mobile – have been deliberately blocking it.The operators did this without telling Nigerian Internet users and without providing any explanation, despite repeated requests from Peoples Gazette and RSF.Qurium found that the operators are using different methods to block access. To rule out any possibility that its inaccessibility was due to a technical problem with the website, Qurium created an exact copy of the site (a “mirror”) with a slightly different domain name, and it proved to be immediately accessible without any problem within Nigeria.Launched in September 2020, Peoples Gazette quickly established itself as a significant news media outlet. In October, it was the source of revelations, supported by documents, that the son of the Nigerian president’s chief of staff had been given access to privileges and responsibilities despite holding no official position.“The insidious and deliberate blocking of a news website regarded as serious and professional constitutes a serious violation of the freedom to inform,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This act of censorship shows that the fight against disinformation, which the Nigerian authorities brandish as a priority, hides the less respectable goal of silencing media criticism. Our organization will support any initiative aimed at condemning such practices by the authorities and by operators when they are acting as their accomplices.”The refusal of the authorities to say anything about the blocking of this website makes it all the more disturbing. The messages that RSF sent to Isa Ali Pantami, the minister of communications and digital economy, and to President Muhammadu Buhari’s special assistant for digital and new media, received no response.The environment for the freedom to inform is increasingly hostile in Nigeria and is marked by the unveiling of more and more draconian bills. After the #EndSARS protests last October, the government revived a bill designed to make it possible to impose Internet cuts. If adopted, operators who resist would be exposed to the possibility of heavy fines or up to three years in prison.In recent years, Nigeria has emerged as one of West Africa’s most dangerous countries for journalists. Three reporters have been shot dead during protests or large gatherings since 2019, and many others have been attacked or arrested during protests. These violations have gone completely unpunished, with the result that journalists censor themselves and some have fled.Less than two weeks ago, RSF reported that the investigative reporter Ibanga Isine had been forced to go into hiding because of the threats he has been receiving and the deaths of several of the sources for his reporting on massacres in the northwestern state of Kaduna.Nigeria is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

The inspiration is an emotive return to Limerick which is infused with a sense of longing, of loss, as hope lingers in the background. The soundscape is an abridged version of a re-working by Jörg Widmann of the Andante from Mendelssohn’s prodigious Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, only published in 1987.  Here Thompson imagines the Clarinet as echoing the movement and emotion of his character, the timbre reflecting his age and fragility as he seeks familiarity in a forgotten but beautiful cityscape.  This surreal episode, ‘Still, Hope’, broadcasts on Thursday 25 February. Don’t miss I Create Online Series 2,  an unforgettable online experience with the Irish Chamber Orchestra running monthly from February through April.  This Limerick-based orchestra is resident at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick and is funded by The Arts Council of Ireland/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.  www.irishchamberorchestra.com Our third collaboration, ‘Eternal Blooms’, is a four-way partnership with Illustrator and Printmaker Eva Byrne, ICO Leader Katherine Hunka, Guitarist Jimmy Smyth and Film Editor, Dominik Kosicki. Eva’s inspiration for ‘Eternal Blooms’ comes from the transient beauty of wildflowers, short-lived when plucked. Her daughter struggles with the fading beauty of the flowers picked daily for her mother, so Eva encapsulates this sadness in her drawing, while at the same time, creates a lifetime memory filled with love for her daughter Polly.  Her music stimulus came from an emotive folksong The Unquiet Grave arranged and performed by Violinist Katherine Hunka and Guitarist Jimmy Smyth.  The imagery is simple, and the melody resembles a lullaby, creating the impression of a natural cycle, ever-present and compelling. The ethereal ‘Eternal Blooms’ broadcasts on Thursday 29 April.

A play on Irish Chamber Orchestra (ICO), this new I Create Online series showcases creative disciplines including Contemporary Mime; Illustration and Print; Marine Film Production; with each creative expression inspired by music performed by members of the Irish Chamber Orchestra. Our mission is to stimulate the senses, open minds and generate an unforgettable ICO experience that will stir hearts, whilst at the same time champion the livelihood of fellow artists.  These imaginative ‘shorts’ will broadcast monthly online from February to April. ‘Fiadh’s Voyage’, our second offering, is a call to the wild from Kerry based Vincent Hyland, a Multimedia Artist, Coastal Ecologist, Wildlife Guide, Photographer, Wildlife & Underwater Film Maker. Vincent was inspired by the ICO’s rendition of Mendelssohn’s iconic Hebrides Overture which amplifies the Atlantic Ocean on a coastal boat trip around the Hebrides.  In his spectacular footage, Vincent explores the cycle of Fiadh, a gannet, journeying over and underwater meeting some amazing sea creatures along the way.  This evocative maritime adventure, produced by Vincent Hyland, is narrated by ICO Violinist Oonagh Keogh, and is inspired by the beauty of the Kerry coastline, its nature, and its wild Atlantic seas.  The ICO’s music injects a certain vibrancy to the film which makes it soar! ‘Fiadh’s Voyage’ broadcasts Thursday 25 March.last_img read more
