HCL Technologies, India’s third-largest technology services company, has generated 50% of its additional revenue from the digital applications business and sees cloud as the biggest area of ​​spending where the company will continue to increase its revenue. investments, its CEO, C Vijayakumar, told ET. Romita Majumdar in an interview. Edited excerpts:

What is HCL Technologies’ area of ​​intervention for the next five years or so?

We consider the cloud to be the most important area of ​​spend for all of our customers and all of our businesses, whether it’s digital foundations, digital business, digital engineering, products and platforms, they’ll benefit from the rise of cloud opportunities. So I think that’s the most important business objective to really exploit all the opportunities around the cloud.

We have an offering called Cloud Smart which provides independent advice around the cloud transformation journey for our clients where they can choose from different hyperscalers and technology solutions. One of the pillars of our intelligent cloud strategy is the ecosystem of partnerships. We have the strongest ecosystem partnerships with AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, as well as hybrid cloud practice with IBM.

How is HCL positioned when it comes to exploiting the opportunities of big tech companies?
We have the largest technology and services vertical, contributing 18% of revenue. This is probably the highest among our peer group. So it’s about serving some of the big tech companies.

You recently said the company isn’t considering large acquisitions and an organic growth strategy, but has announced smaller acquisitions over the past week. What drives this?

Our train of thought is to acquire more vertical and industry-specific capabilities. As in the banking sector, wealth management is a very important area and it has several strong products, like Avaloq, for example, in different geographies. Confinale (acquired for 53 million Swiss francs) is a company with good wealth management advisory capacity. And we already have strong implementation capacity. So we acquired the front piece.

Has growing global geopolitical uncertainty changed the type of solutions customers seek? Are they looking for more decoupled solutions?
It’s not new, a lot of big companies have always been talking about composable platforms. So composable platforms give you the flexibility to make those changes, demarcations, and segregations based on business needs and create new applications, create new controls, create more security postures. So it’s a good trend for many companies.

And has this demand for composable solutions translated into revenue?
I think last year 50% of the incremental revenue we got was from a digital apps business focused on building composable apps, digital platforms, analytics, data, and so on in (this space).

WhatsApp announced that it will ask users for their legal names to make UPI-based payments on the platform.

These legal names are the names associated with users’ bank accounts. They may be different from profile names and will be displayed to the receiver. This change comes after the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) guidelines were set by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to combat payment fraud.

WhatsApp has officially confirmed the same on its website. According to the statement, this requirement is defined by the NPCI and designed to mitigate fraud in the UPI payment system. WhatsApp uses the phone number associated with its account to identify the bank account through UPI. The name associated with their bank account is the name that will be shared.

This change applies to iOS and Android users. Until now, WhatsApp users could add the sender name themselves which could include up to 25 characters, even emojis. But now it is mandatory for all users to give the legal name which is on their UPI linked bank account to make the payment.

For the uninitiated, WhatsApp does not require them to have a digital wallet to make payments or receive money on the platform. The messaging app uses the Unified Payment Interface (UPI), the same system as Google Pay, Phone Pay, BHIM, and various banking apps. WhatsApp users can even make payments through other apps such as BHIM, Google Pay or Phone Pay.

The past few decades have seen an explosion of Indigenous jurisprudence in Canada, with decisions that set precedents like R v. Sparrow and Delgamuukw v. British Columbia, dramatically increasing activity in what was once a specialized field.

More cases means more opportunities for lawyers to have disputes with their clients over financial arrangements. In recent decades, a significant number of these disputes have also been brought to court – disputes over hourly fees, installments and contingency fees, disputes over who has the right to act for a particular First Nation .

Some professionals in the field of Indigenous law claim that these disputes are the result of a power imbalance between Indigenous communities and the lawyers they hire. They are calling for reforms to the Model Code of Conduct to protect Indigenous clients from bad actors in the legal profession.

“Indigenous communities have trust issues when it comes to legal services, which stems from a history of lawyers exploiting them,” said Raquel Fraser of Fox Fraser LLP in Calgary. “And there are many more such cases than ever reported to the bars.” Fraser also discussed the issue at the CBA-FLSC’s online ethics symposium in April.

At the Indigenous Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference in November 2021, Fraser and IBA President Drew Lafond, Partner at MLT Aikins in Saskatoon, made a joint presentation on Model Code of Conduct reform. . First Nations governments are particularly vulnerable to exploitation by their legal representatives, Lafond said, because they are typically distracted by unmet basic needs in their communities.

“When you’re a member of chief and council, you drink water from a fire hose every day,” he said. “First Nations are embroiled in massive and extremely complex legal claims that take years, if not decades, to resolve.

“And they are trying to manage these claims while dealing with a context of poverty and colonialization that makes it more difficult to address these claims, especially when it comes to dealing with community demands for basic services.”

Lafond said the IBA is partnering with the Federation of Law Societies of Canada to review and modify the model code to protect Indigenous clients — starting with changes to how emergency agreements work.

Contingent fee agreements can jump-start cases for cash-poor clients, but unless their lawyers are transparent about the nature of the work, they can lead to unfair results.

In 2015, Tallcree First Nation in northern Alberta entered into a contingency fee agreement with Rath & Company to manage an agricultural benefits settlement with Ottawa. The agreement awarded the law firm 20% of the eventual settlement, or fees of $11.5 million. A review officer said the fees were “not patently unreasonable”.

An Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench judge overturned that decision, finding it contained “palpable and overriding errors” and pointing out that the settlement with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government – which had signaled an approach most accommodating of native policy – had been concluded quickly and easily.

The model code of conduct section on contingency fees says lawyers should consider, among other things, the “complexity of the claim, the expense and risk of pursuing it” before setting a percentage. The test, he says, is whether the fee is “just and reasonable”.

This is too vague for the IBA, which is calling for a model contingency fee agreement, a maximum percentage for work on indigenous claims and a revised section of the code of conduct expressly prohibiting “exorbitant fees…which are not not supported by the amount of effort put into the case…”


Noel Semple, a law professor at the University of Windsor, says a sensible way to protect vulnerable customers is to develop time-based billing standards, a practice he says is largely unregulated in the country. Canada.

“Companies will make decisions about, for example, the division of labor between associates and associates, or when to stop a lawsuit, that affect what the client pays,” said Semple, who is running for the Ontario Liberals in Etobicoke Centre. “Unsurprisingly, some companies have made such decisions in the interest of making money, not in the interest of the customer.

“Little things can really add up. Like if a company charges a customer three minutes or ten minutes for the labor involved in writing and sending an email.”

The IBA also wants reforms “to ensure that legal fees and disbursements charged to Indigenous clients are tied to legal services rendered under a duly authorized retainer.” Fraser said there were too many disputes over who had the authority to hire a law firm on behalf of a First Nation, too many lawyers working on fees charging clients for work that they had never asked.

“The client receives an invoice for work they didn’t know was in progress. We’ve seen this happen many times,” she said.

“And there are ways to structure retainer agreements themselves to prevent a First Nation from retaining another law firm to review fees charged by another,” Lafond said. “In some cases, these agency contracts prevent the client from hiring another company until the original company has been reimbursed on the invoice they sent to the client.”

Customers who have qualms about legal fees have the option of “taxing” – asking the court to review the account. But these reviews must be launched within a specified time frame.

“And the courts haven’t shown much will to extend it,” Lafond said. “When a First Nation receives a decision from a court, there are a lot of moving parts and a lot of things that need to be done simultaneously. It may be some time before the First Nation has time to review the charges, at which time the time limit may have passed.”

This can particularly disadvantage First Nations undergoing leadership changes, Fraser said.

“Some First Nations have their own election rules, while others follow the Indian Act’s two-year timeline,” she said.

“This means frequent changes of government, new people who may not know the details of business and professional agreements entered into by the former incumbent. Under these circumstances, why shouldn’t law firms review these agreements with their customers?

Last year Domestic Violence Response (DVR) Galway recorded its highest number of new clients and highest level of counseling sessions in its 24 year history.

The charity’s 2021 annual report noted that in many cases Covid-19 restrictions were being used by domestic abusers to exert additional control over their partners.

A total of 266 people used DVR services last year. Some 136 were contacting DVR for the first time and there was a significant increase in the number of returning service users in the latter part of the year.

A total of 51 nights of accommodation were provided in Galway from late June 2020 to December 2021, through a scheme which saw Airbnb partner with Safe Ireland and Women’s Aid to provide free emergency accommodation to victims of domestic violence .

DVR provided 1,449 support sessions to service users last year.

In early summer 2021, Covid-19 restrictions began to be lifted and the charity noted that disclosures from service users were “simple and heartbreaking”. These revelations came mainly from women, but some men also used telephone support.

According to DVR staff, the women said the Covid-19 restrictions were being used as a tactic to impose additional control. The women said their partners were enforcing their isolation, enforcing strict and excessive cleaning routines and meting out penalties for “putting the family at risk”.

A significant increase in disclosures of sexual abuse was also noted by staff during this period.

The report also noted that a Women’s Aid and Safe Ireland Hardship Fund helped women relocate and flee domestic violence. This fund paid for gas costs, phone credit, new clothes and property destroyed by the attacker, as well as setting up new homes and installing a dashcam or CCTV.

Cruinniú, a local charity, donated €6,000 in food vouchers to alleviate hardship for service users over Christmas.

Supports

Last year, DVR court defense staff traveled over 100 times to provide face-to-face support at courthouses in Galway City, Ballinasloe, Loughrea, Tuam, Clifden and Derynea.

DVR also worked with the Irish Center for Human Rights at NUI Galway to create a proposal on establishing a support and referral service within the courts for victims of domestic violence. The charity has made a presentation to court staff about it, and the proposal will be developed further this year.

The report also noted developments in DVR services, including improved services for older women, Irish speakers and travellers. Just under two percent of service users last year were of Traveler ethnicity.

Literature in Polish, French and Spanish has also been expanded, as last year 23% of all users of the service were non-Irish.

Elizabeth Power, coordinator of DVR Galway, said her staff had noted an increase in the level of scrutiny and abuse. “The trauma of these experiences will live on with our service users long after Covid-19 has faded from memory.”

The annual report was launched on Monday at DVR’s new premises in Moycullen.

Their old premises in Oughterard were flooded in June last year due to a burst pipe. Damage was caused to promotional materials, brochures and posters, and the flooding caused extensive damage to the exterior floor of the office, electrical outlets and units, such that the office was rendered uninhabitable.

DVR Galway can be contacted on 091 866740.

Women’s Aid can be contacted 24/7 on 1800 341 900.

DUBAI: It’s not just holidaymakers who have contributed to the boom in the luxury holiday home market. Foreign companies operate from short-term rental villas, said Mohammed Sultan, founder and CEO of Luxury Explorers Collection, which has helped them.

Sultan is a veteran of the luxury hotel industry, specializing in high-level conferences and VIP travel arrangements since 2004. But when the pandemic hit – essentially bringing events and travel to a halt – he had to change quickly. of strategy.

His company spotted an urgent need in the market for high-end, short-term vacation rentals. So in June 2020, just months after COVID-19 swept the world, Luxury Holiday Homes was created.

The majority of the company’s customers are from Europe and Asia, mainly China. They are not typical digital nomads; they are high profile men and women who see the appeal of doing business in Dubai.

Compared to restrictive COVID-19 measures in many major cities in Asia and the ongoing war in Eastern Europe, Dubai has become a safe halfway house for businesses.

“Since the pandemic, China has been our biggest market,” Sultan told Arab News.

“We are seeing a lot of wealthy people moving their business and bringing in staff members to operate in a villa in Dubai, in addition to the influx of Russian businessmen vacationing in Dubai and investing here. They need a base, so they use our ultra-luxury properties to experience the market and feel settled,” he added.

The luxury sought

The global vacation rental market is expected to reach $111.2 billion by 2030, according to a 2021 Precedence Research study. The ultra-luxury market, however, is more nuanced.

In addition to beautifully decorated properties, often in popular destinations such as the exclusive Emirates Hills area or a penthouse in downtown Dubai, amenities are offered to affluent clients.

Private chefs, butler services, and high-end toiletries are expected. The company operates 20 properties in Dubai and five in Makkah. The three-bedroom unit in Makkah that overlooks the Kaaba is one of the most coveted properties in his reach.

“Most hotels in Makkah are old and not good value for money. It is really difficult to find a large three bedroom in Makkah that is suitable for a whole family and overlooks the holy place for prayers,” Sultan said. “It’s a spiritual experience.”

In Dubai, the Company’s properties are spread across Palm Jumeirah, Emirates Hills and Downtown Dubai. The majority of holiday homes have pianos so that the children can continue their lessons. Some have open-air cinemas and beachside barbecue areas. Luxury Explorer Collection rates per night range from 6,000 dirhams ($1,634) to 65,000 dirhams.

“When we started with a few properties, clients would call us at odd hours asking how to turn on the gas for cooking, so we realized they needed to be fully maintained to a high degree,” Sultan said. “We’ve set an impeccable ultra-luxury standard now, and we’ve seen the highest occupancy rates.”

Changing trends

Luxury Holiday Homes is currently planning to expand into Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia to meet growing demand. Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam are on the radar. Additionally, the company will soon be working with a developer to create luxury mansion experiences from the ground up within the next two to five years.

“It helped me to work in the industry and to have the right connections. I knew the habits of high net worth individuals in the area, so when we saw that hotel bookings were slowing down in 2008 and the homes of private vacations were on the rise, I took note of consumer preference and acted at the appropriate time,” Sultan said.

“Even hotel brands are moving into short-term rental space,” he added.

Brands such as Marriott International launched Homes & Villas in 2018, encouraging guests to stay longer.

“Hotels are definitely getting into the vacation home business. We talk about it all the time at conferences,” Sultan said. “But they have restrictions; we can update easily and quickly; we offer more privacy.

New data brought new insights into traveler habits that he hadn’t anticipated, affecting renovation plans in some cases.

“Our data shows that the more you renovate your bathrooms, the more value you get. We have renovated all the bathrooms and set aside the secondary bedroom renovations in the 11 bedroom villas. It paid off,” he said. “We have found in a striking way that revenue increases massively the more you upgrade the bathrooms.”

Other preferences include entertainment facilities, including cinemas and barbecue areas facing the sea. As the lines between work and personal life remain blurred, having everything you need in one place is particularly appealing. for luxury travel consumers and business travelers.

How to Meet the Retirement Needs of Your Self-Employed Clients https://mscoursing.com/how-to-meet-the-retirement-needs-of-your-self-employed-clients/ Fri, 06 May 2022 19:55:36 +0000 https://mscoursing.com/how-to-meet-the-retirement-needs-of-your-self-employed-clients/ Retirement planning is high on the minds of Americans in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and soaring inflation pushing up consumer prices.

Retirement planning is high on the minds of Americans in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and soaring inflation pushing up consumer prices. While much of the population does not currently have a retirement plan or save, the problem becomes even more complicated for the self-employed who do not have a fallback to fall back on when these are 401(k) or retirement plans.

Financial advisors play a crucial role in helping self-employed clients determine the type of retirement strategy best suited to their circumstances, based on their income level and tax bracket, number of employees, benefits and the costs of obtaining and maintaining the plan, reports US News and World Reports. With a variety of plan options, the choices can be daunting, and working out a retirement plan with a financial advisor can provide self-employed clients with confidence and assurance.

Traditional and Roth IRAs, while less common, are still a viable option if a client is self-employed. The main benefit is that contributions can be deducted at tax time, with annual contribution limits of $6,000 if a client is under age 50 or $7,000 if age 50 or older.

Another option is the solo 401(k), which is for a self-employed person with no employees, although a spouse who works for the company can also contribute. In 2022, an employee can contribute up to $20,500 per year, plus an additional $6,500 if age 50 or older for catch-up purposes; the total amount an employer and employee can contribute is $61,000 plus the additional catch-up amount. What makes these plans attractive is that the self-employed person is considered both employer and employee and can contribute to the plan at the same time. These plans also cover Roth options.

Simplified employee pensions are similar to solo 401(k)s in that the contribution and compensation levels are roughly the same. A notable difference between the two plans, however, is that SEPs do not allow catch-up contributions, nor do they have Roth options. This plan can be used when a client has employees, but they must contribute an equal percentage of salary for each eligible employee.

The Employee Savings Incentive Plan (SIMPLE) IRA allows for both employee and employer contributions with maximum contributions of $14,000 in 2022, plus a $3,000 catch-up for 50 years and over. The employer must generally make matching contributions of up to 3% for all contributing employees, or a flat rate of 2% regardless of employee contributions, but employee contributions can be written off as a business expense .

There is an assortment of retirement plan options for self-employed clients and for financial advisors looking to meet their clients’ income needs. Nationwide offers a variety of actively managed ETFs for advisors that suit a range of investment exposures and strategies, including seeking a measure of downside protection within major indices.
