See all posts by Peter Stephens Here’s how I’d invest £250 a month in the best dividend shares now to make a passive income Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The best dividend shares to buy now may not necessarily be those offering the highest yields to passive income investors. Such businesses may fail to deliver strong dividend growth. Or they could have high yields because of a low share price caused by weak financial performance.As such, identifying stocks with sound dividend growth prospects and solid market positions could be a better idea than simply buying high-yielding shares. Over time, they could produce a generous income return from a modest monthly investment.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…Investing money in the best dividend shares nowBuying the best dividend shares now may not seem a worthwhile move for some passive income investors. They may be concerned about the economy’s prospects. Or they feel a more attractive buying opportunity may come along after the stock market rally in the final three quarters of 2020.However, a number of income shares continue to offer good value for money. Investor sentiment towards sectors such as consumer goods, energy and financial services hasn’t yet fully recovered to 2019 levels. Therefore, it’s possible to buy dividend shares in such sectors at low prices that could translate into high returns in the long run.Moreover, many of the best dividend shares offer the potential for a growing passive income in the long run. For example, they may have a competitive advantage over their peers. Or they could have a sound strategy through which to generate improving financial performance.Over time, this may help to increase their market valuations, as well as their dividends. This may result in an increasingly attractive income opportunity.A long-term approach to making a passive incomeOf course, making a passive income in 2021 is very achievable through buying the best dividend shares now. Many FTSE 350 stocks have a potent combination of relatively high yields well covered by profit, dividend growth potential, and a solid track record of making shareholder payouts despite varied economic conditions.Buying such companies with a modest monthly investment throughout 2021 could produce a high, and growing, income return.However, the long-term opportunity from dividend stocks may be even more compelling than their relatively high yields in 2021. They could gain in popularity compared to other income-producing assets in an era of low interest rates. This may lead to impressive total returns relative to the wider stock market that produces a large retirement nest egg.For example, investing £250 per month could produce a generous passive income in the long run. Even by achieving the same 8% annual total return as the stock market has delivered in the past. It could be worth £375,000 within 30 years. From this, a 4% withdrawal equates to an income of £15,000 per year.However, by investing in the best dividend shares on a regular basis throughout 2021 and beyond, it’s possible to outperform the market and enjoy an even more attractive income return in the long run.

S+H HOUSE 2 is the client’s second house, a second opportunity to create a new work with ideas and concept like never before and design which differs from the previous one.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe house is located inside a residence and the site is on a rectangle space with 12x26m in size. The front side faces west which has the residence’s park. Save this picture!PlanThis project requires plenty of space for the house itself and a gallery inside to display the client’s art collection. With the first thought of an area of 655m2 and only having 312m2 to work with, it becomes a challenge for the architect to succeed and present uniqueness and most importantly, comfort. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe first solution is to assemble the rooms and spaces in vertical way. Between each levels must bring a nice flow and continuity, but still having a special element that create differences. Bringing uniqueness by making a relation between walls and no-walls spaces and a bordering element to connect indoor and outdoor. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe use of split level is to create height between each level as a media for natural light and air to come in and circulate.Save this picture!SectionThe room process starts from the stairs to the main entrance and the front porch. The front porch is an area protected from sunlight and rain because of the overhanging plate and the kids bedroom ‘box’ above. The entrance door uses solid wood and heads towards the foyer inside that blends in with the family room. To split the foyer from the family room, a laser-cut wooden panel with traditional Chinese pattern is used. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe dining area is an open and transparent space with special design and structure to create a hanging effect between the levels above and underneath it. The dining area floor gets an effect of ‘flying’ above the swimming pool and the spaces between them is used as a media to let light and air flow to the service area below. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaAbove the dining area is the master bedroom, which holds three sides of the dining area to protect it from sunlight and rain. Save this picture!SectionHeading to the next level, the main staircase must be passed. The staircase is made out of solid wood with metal structure. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe first level holds the function of private space. It has the master bedroom on the back side and 2 kids bedrooms with its own bathrooms in the front. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaCirculation access is continued until the highest level through a straight and long staircase that ends in the gallery with the size of 6x10m and small and effective light openings that gives a dramatic, silent and calming effects to the gallery. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaTransparency brings in air and light that makes the room always looking fresh and bright. Crossed ventilation is created from glass sliding door which is easy to open and close. The air conditioner doesn’t need to be used all day for the ground level. Radiation from sunlight is blocked by the architectural shape of the house which is dynamic with voids and overhanging spaces that keeps the temperature stable. A second skin element from perforated GRC concrete will allow the house to breathe, prevent excessive heat to come inside and allow cool air to come in for a comfortable micro climate inside the house. Project gallerySee allShow lessChimney Café / GOASelected ProjectsDingpu Metro Station / JJPSelected Projects Share “COPY” S+H House 2 / STUDIOKAS CopyHouses•Kelapa Gading, Indonesia Architects: STUDIOKAS Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  312 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs S+H House 2 / STUDIOKASSave this projectSaveS+H House 2 / STUDIOKAS Houseslast_img read more

  • Share dealing opens for new charity online lottery company

    first_img Howard Lake | 6 February 2006 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Share dealing opens for new charity online lottery company Chariot was founded in April 2003 with the aim of increasing the percentage contribution, per ticket sold, to registered charities compared to that passed on by Camelot’s The National Lottery. Chariot will allow the lottery players to choose the registered charity benefiting from their lottery ticket purchasesChariot, however, differs from the National Lottery because its business model involves it operating under society lottery rules. It will be primarily an online game, with some players also using the phone or post.So far over 50 charities have signed contractually binding agreements to participate. Share dealings have today opened in Chariot (UK) plc, a new venture which intends to run an online lottery to raise funds for charities.Before being admitted to the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), operated by the London Stock Exchange, Chariot had raised £9.6 million (gross), resulting in an approximate market capitalisation of £18 million at the placing price.Commenting on the announcement, Craig Freeman, Managing Director of Chariot, said: “We are pleased to have successfully completed our flotation. The funds raised will provide us with a strong platform upon which to launch our game in 2006 and we look forward to delivering a new and exciting lottery for the benefit of players and charity partners alike”.

    first_imgLocal NewsBusiness TAGS  Verdantix Says The Financial Market’s Obsession With ESG Performance Will Force Firms To Transform Their Sustainability Strategies WhatsApp Facebook Pinterest LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 18, 2021– The focus of the financial community – asset managers, commercial banks, stock exchanges and regulators – on Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) metrics has dramatically changed the context for corporate sustainability strategies according to a new study from independent research firm Verdantix. “For more than a decade, the overwhelming majority of CEOs have felt comfortable with a passive sustainability strategy consisting of producing an annual sustainability report” commented David Metcalfe, Verdantix CEO. “That approach is no longer fit for purpose. Investors and lenders believe that ESG factors drive material risks and opportunities. CEOs need to integrate ESG factors in their strategies, annual plans, operational decisions and disclosures.” The Verdantix report, Market Overview: Investor Focus On ESG Will Transform Sustainability Strategies, identifies five segments with huge growth prospects. Fintech ESG platforms. Financial market participants want increasingly granular, frequent and credible data on issuers’ ESG performance. In the last two years, Clarity AI, Deutsche Börse, Moody’s, Morningstar, MSCI, RepRisk, S&P Global and Urgentem have made acquisitions or investments in AI-powered ESG analytics platforms. High fidelity ESG data providers. A host of ESG data providers have launched to cut through the greenwash and provide trustworthy data. Project Canary focuses on ESG certificates for natural gas production with customers like EQT. ClearTrace validates the renewable energy claims of JP Morgan Chase. GHGSat gathers GHG emissions data with low-orbit satellites. Next gen sustainability software. Aplanet, Diginex Solutions, Novisto and Persefoni have designed software around new ESG requirements, not the historic CDP and GRI requirements. These new entrants complement existing providers such as Enablon, IsoMetrix, Quentic and UL. Systems of record for ESG operationalization. When CEOs decide to improve ESG risk, performance and disclosure they will leverage existing systems of record. EHS software providers like Benchmark Digital, Cority, Intelex and Sphera already offer sustainability capabilities. Other categories include sustainable real estate, product stewardship, compliance software and asset investment planning. Digital sustainability consulting. To pivot from outdated passive sustainability strategies, CEOs seek out management consultants who have both subject matter expertise and the ability to implement an ESG information architecture. Depending on project specifics, CEOs hire consultancies like Accenture, Anthesis, Arcadis, ERM, EY, FigBytes, Golder, McKinsey and Willis Towers Watson.
