Social Impact Awards 2017

MeDirect partners with the Social Impact Awards

MeDirect congratulates all the participants and winners of the 2017 Social Impact Awards, which were held on Thursday 16th November 2017. Of the eight worthy projects presented on the night, five projects were awarded funding to get their schemes off the ground. The judging panel, which included our very own Lorraine Bonello Ghio, Group Head of HR and Administration, awarded first place and €40,000 to OOPS, a student project at Giovanni Curmi Higher Secondary School which aims to provide free mental health services to students. Friendship Cards, a project aimed at improving children’s emotional literacy and conflict resolution skills, won the €35,000 second place prize, whilst Hospice Malta and Malta Youth Athletes Network jointly claimed third prize and €20,000 each. The Audience Participation Award and the ZAAR Crowdfunding Malta Award were awarded to the Migrant Women Association Malta for their food truck project, which will lead to the employment and financial independence of around 40 migrant women. The Audience Participation Award prize and CORE award of €8,300 was matched by the committee, leading to a total prize of €16,600. MeDirect is proud to have been a headline sponsor for this event, and wishes all participants every success in their efforts.

BlackRock Commentary: Macro outlook retakes spotlight

Despite the latest payrolls data indicating a highly constrained labor market, there has been no improvement in workforce participation, which contributes to the ongoing issue of stubborn core inflation. In light of this situation, BlackRock believe that the combination of persistent inflation and elevated levels of debt could prompt investors to seek greater compensation for holding U.S. assets, particularly long-term Treasuries, in the long run.
