The star of classic movies that shaped our childhoods appeared alongside Hollywood darling Ryan Reynolds for a 30-second-long advert that promotes a new unlimited phone plan from Mint mobile. Mint itself is owned by Ryan, so fun and unexpected ads are probably a given.

“It’s hard to believe that Mint Mobile has gone so long without an unlimited plan,” Ryan Reynolds starts off the ad. “So, to introduce it, we brought in an actor we’ve all gone too long without: Rick Moranis.”

“So why am I here?” Rick Moranis asks after Ryan informs him that he won’t have to promote the new Mint plan. “I’m a huge fan,” Ryan says with a smile. “Massive.”
“That’s it?” Rick inquires before heading out. “See ya,” he says.

But is now planning to return with a ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ reboot

In a statement, Ryan Reynolds later revealed: “Like many Canadians and humans, I adore and worship Rick Moranis. From Strange Brew to Ghostbusters to Spaceballs to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, his performances and lines are burned into my brain and heart. We asked Rick to do this 8 days before our shoot kind of on a lark but after a few emails and a conversation, he agreed. And it was wonderful. Everyone on set was completely star-struck, most of all me. We’re so grateful he came back and hope he stays back.”

Canadian actor Rick Moranis had decided to take a break from acting in 1997, several years after his wife, costume designer Ann Belsky, died in 1991 of breast cancer. The pair had two children.

However, rumor has it that Rick Moranis is planning a return to Hollywood with Disney’s upcoming Honey, I Shrunk the Kids reboot.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
