Croatia Airlines planes currently fly from Zagreb to 14 European destinations and 5 Croatian airports. The additional importance and contribution to tourism in the conditions of the crisis and the consequences for the tourist season is also visible in the connection of coastal airports with European destinations. Thus, the company’s aircraft directly connect ZL Split with 11 European destinations, ZL Dubrovnik with 7 European cities and ZL Rijeka with Munich. In the first half of this year, Croatia Airlines aircraft flew 7567 block hours, which is 59 percent less than in the same period last year. 5661 flights were performed, ie 7536 fewer flights, which is a decrease of 57 percent compared to the same period in 2019. The structure of the crash was adjusted to the needs of traffic, and given the market circumstances, greater emphasis was placed on the use of the Q400 fleet, whose capacity is smaller compared to the Airbus fleet. Although the story about Croatia Airlines has several dimensions, the Croatian national carrier in the first half of 2020 shared the fate of the aviation industry, which faced the deepest crisis in its history due to the coronavirus pandemic. The number of passengers in domestic regular traffic (83.618 passengers) decreased by 63 percent, in international regular traffic (244.382 passengers) this decrease amounted to 66 percent, and in extraordinary traffic (2935 passengers) a decrease of 84 percent was recorded. A total of 330.935 passengers were transported in the first half of the year, or almost 630.000 fewer passengers than in the same period last year, down 66 percent. As a direct consequence of a smaller crash and a smaller number of transported passengers, operating revenues decreased by 55 percent (HRK -411,7 million), within which the most significant decrease was in passenger revenues in the amount of HRK 399,1 million. Photo: Croatia Airlines Logically and as expected, the epidemiological crisis drastically reduced the demand for air transport services in the period, which consequently had a negative impact on financial operations and Croatia Airlines, which recorded an operating loss of HRK 155,4 million, which with a net financing result gives a net loss of HRK 173,2 million. The devastating effect of the corona virus crisis was particularly pronounced in the second quarter (April – June), in which the company, under normal circumstances, began to make a profit to cover winter losses. Specifically, in the second quarter of this year, a loss of HRK 62,7 million was recorded, while in the same period last year, an operating profit of HRK 10,5 million and a net profit of HRK 9,1 million were recorded.
Demand for small cap equity strategies from pension funds and other asset owners appears to be on the rise, according to consultancy bfinance.It said it registered “notably” greater interest among the institutional investors that it worked with, and that the underlying motivations for making small cap investments were evolving.“While the academic and investment communities have become somewhat sceptical about the so-called ‘size premium’, allocators are instead looking towards small cap to complement and diversify their existing exposures, seeking stronger risk-adjusted returns over the long-term,” it said in a report.This was because, in the recent extended bull run, strong equity market returns had been “somewhat reliant on a relatively modest number of large cap stocks”. bfinance’s clients had shown interest in both regional and global small cap strategies, with the number of products of the latter type rising rapidly.The consultancy estimated there were more than 70 such strategies available, three times more than 10 years ago. US investors prefer their domestic market for small cap companiesHowever, pension funds and other asset owners remained structurally under-allocated to small cap equities, according to the consultancy.This lack of exposure had been reinforced by two of the past decade’s key trends: the move from regional to global equity strategies and the shift towards passive investment.Where investors using passive global broad market indices had additional small cap exposure, this was frequently confined to the domestic market, in particular for asset owners in the US and Australia.Exposure to small cap stocks among active global equity funds Source: bfinance.

Image Courtesy: Hansa Heavy LiftGerman shipping company Hansa Heavy Lift has transported 13 modules measuring over 147,124 cbm from China to Australia, to help with the redevelopment of the Nyrstar Smelter in Port Pirie.The cargo was loaded on four separate voyages at the Yanda Module Yard in Jiangsu, China, with the largest piece weighing 690 metric tonnes, and measuring 28 metres in length, 17 metres in width, and 26.7 metres in height.“This was a particularly challenging project which required the use of three of our vessels on four separate trips operating at their full capacity, including HHL New York, HHL Lagos, and HHL Valparaiso,” Henry Woo, Head of AsiaPacific (APAC), Hansa Heavy Lift, said.“Lifting and rigging were particularly challenging for this project due to the height of the modules combined with the offset centre of gravity, with up to five lifting beams required for a single lift,” Woo added.The decks of each vessel were extended to the aft and in some cases even to the starboard side to accommodate up to five modules per trip. The over dimensional cargo required the installation of additional bow radars and the extra crew to double up bridge watches.Modules had to be placed onto the self-propelled modular transporter with minimum clearance in between each vessel’s hull and the fixed structures on the wharf to overcome the limited space on the jetty in Port Pirie.Image Courtesy: Hansa Heavy Lift“We are proud to have completed the project with a smooth execution at every stage, resulting in a safe and on-time delivery of all modules,” Jens Grever, Head of Cargo Management, Asia, Hansa Heavy Lift, said.The Port Pirie Redevelopment Project will convert the smelting facility operated by Nyrstar to a multi metals processing and recovery facility.
