Equities First Holdings news on affordable loans

Published / by WT23

xEquities First Holdings is a financial institution which offers alternative financing methods. The company which has been around for 15 years was started so that it could solve the financing challenges that were facing the financial industry. Borrowing has for a long time been a privilege of the wealthy since they are the ones with the capability of repaying loans. Commercial banks have denied startups and individuals a chance to engage in business activities by making it very hard for them to access financing for business and personal needs. When one is looking for solutions to challenges that face the industry, offering affordable financing options is something that rhymes with a majority of the players in the financial sector. This is precisely what this company did. Equities First Holdings came up with a solution that would help those who could not fit in the commercial banking sector to access the same services at even a lower cost.

Adam Milstein Challenges the Jewish community to step up and defend their rights

Published / by WT23

Adam Milstein in his recent article on the Times of Israel blog says Israel and particularly the Jewish people are facing challenges that can only be faced by great leaders who will offer great leadership. He says Israel’s main challenge back in the world war era was to fight for the allies and raise the awareness about the possible destruction of the European Jewry

But now, Milstein sees that Israel is facing a new set of challenges with the main problem revolving around the eradication of the state of Israel. This problem, he says, is trying to separate the Jewish community especially the one in America from their true homeland Israel. To him, he believes that these problems demand immediate action and which can be tackled by the new emerging leaders from the Jewish community living in the Diaspora.

According to him, the American Jewish community needs to identify and support the current crop of Israeli leaders who are bold enough to fight against anti-Semitism and who are willing to fight for the Jewish homeland.

During his time as a pro-Israel activism, Adam Milstein says he has met a number of innovative, brilliant minded and passionate pro-Israel activists who are rising up to meet the challenges that Israel is currently facing in the modern times. He has come to believe that these are the very people who will bring change to Israel as they are taking active roles in creating links between America and Israel.

Adam Milstein is also cognizant of the fact that leaders face numerous challenges in their leadership and it is for this reason that he encourages the Jewish community to come out and offer support. He challenges them to invest in the current crop of good leaders so that the Jewish future can be safeguarded.

Adam Milstein is a native Israeli who served time in the Israeli defense force during the famous Yom Kippur war. In 1978, he graduated from the Technion Institute before moving to the United States where he attained his MBA postgraduate degree. Currently, he is the co-founder and managing director of Hager Pacific Properties a company dealing with real estate investments.

Hurricane Harvey Relief and the Input of One Tony Petrello

Published / by WT23

Tony Petrello has always been passionate about giving back to the community. As Nabors Industries CEO, he demonstrated that the company was not just about drawing profits from the community, but also giving back to the community. When Hurricane Harvey stuck Houston and the Texas environs, homes were laid to waste, streets flooded and people disoriented. Among the many good Samaritans that turned up for the community were H-E-B, Nabors Industries and also Houston Food Bank.

Intervention during Hurricane Harvey

Nabors Industries are conditioned to respond to urgent community matters. While they still undertake, their responsibilities as a company, they are also keen on participating in fundraisers, important community projects and special events. During the period of Hurricane Harvey, the employees at Nabors Industries were given time off from work to help with disaster management and relief. The company still paid them for their time off and encouraged them to go wherever they were needed. Nabors Industries’ fund, Nabors Disaster Relief Fund, set up for similar community assistance was active in making generous distributions to the suffering people of Houston and the wider Texas area. The victims of the hurricane were able to access hot meals in the on-site kitchens set up by Nabors.

Nabors’ communications manager indicated that close to 10% of the staff at Nabors were affected by the hurricane. Indeed, the company has also donated to other organizations like Susan G. Komen Foundation. Bike MS has also received donations from Nabors Industries. The children of the employees of the company are also sponsored to go to school. $3 million has been set aside by the company.

Tony Petrello

Tony leads Nabors Industries in the spirit of giving back to the community and employee welfare. Originally from New Jersey, he has been in Texas and has a home and feels attached to the local folk. Tony met his equally charitable wife in college.

One of the areas that they readily fund and demonstrate great interest in is neurological disorders in children. The couple found that little research was available for this condition in children. As a result they are keen on helping organizations and charities dedicated to the treatment of this childhood disorder. So far $ 7 million has been donated to the Texas Children’s Hospital. As an appreciative gesture the hospital’s board made overtures to Tony that he may join and help in fundraising. The generous contributions made by the Petrellos made it possible for them to start a neurological research institute: Jan and Duncan Institute.

Davos Real Estate Group Makes New Announcement

Published / by WT23

David Osio, CEO of the Davos Real Estate Group, was joined by his executive directors for the announcement of their latest technology asset to be made available to their clients. The announcement was a new mobile application that will be available for anyone prospectively looking at buying a property in the South American markets. The application will be a great resource to real estate investors all over the continent.

The application is called the Davos CAP Calculator. The real estate group is one of the leading investment firms in Latin America. This new piece of software should only strengthen that claim. The firm got so successful over the last two decades by committing itself to giving each of its clients personally tailored advice that works within their portfolio to give them the results that they want.

The CAP Calculator is truly a labor of love for Davos. The company spent half a year developing and streamlining the technology. The app was developed in conjunction with South American-based software development company, Tecknolution. The app was mostly developed under the supervision of one of the executive directors, Gerard Gonzalez.

David Osio is one of the most successful financial professionals over the last three decades in South America. He got his start in school in the country of Venezuela. He went to law school in the country and got a job after graduation working for a legal practice that works in the financial sector. This is where he gained most of his knowledge about the financial industry.

He represented some of the top banks and corporations in the country. After that, he transitioned to the other side of the aisle to work for the Banco Latino Internacional in Miami, Florida. This is what brought his to the United States. His vast knowledge of the financial industry and financial regulations in South America helped him work his way up to being the Vice President of Commercial Banking.

After this, he decided to strike out on his own and use his investing knowledge to start the Davos Investing Group. It is one of the biggest firms operating in South America. The Davos Real Estate group is one of the biggest factions of it. The fact that they are now giving people the opportunity to carry a mortgage calculator with them wherever they go will only make the company more successful. The company has plans to expand on the offerings of the application in the future.

George Soros Goes Bearish Amid Many Challenges Affecting The Global Economy

Published / by WT23

The founder and chair of Soros Fund Management, George Soros is worried about China’s economy and how it is going to impact the global economy. Soros has, therefore, dialed back on the U.S. stocks investment by more than a third and betting for gold. The recent change in strategy is reflected in the value of Soros Fund Management’s publicly disclosed holdings that declined by 37 percent to $3.5 billion by the end of March according to reports from the government filing. It is clear that Soros Fund Management has opted for bearish options that include 2.1 million shares of SPDR 500 ETF Trust at a value of $431 million.

The firm has bought 1.05 million shares from SPDR Gold Trust and recently took a stake in Barrick Gold Corp, the world’s biggest producer of gold with shares worth $264 million. Soros Fund Management has $24 billion in assets under management, all belonging to George Soros and his family after refunding the assets the firm owed to other investors.

George Soros had expressed doubts in the China’s economy warning investors to take caution as the debt-fueled economy resembles the moments before U.S. 2007/2008 financial crisis that became the global financial crisis. Soros has publicly said that a “hard landing” for China is “practically unavoidable” and added that it would worsen the already ailing global economy, drag down the value of stocks, cause deflation and boost the U.S. economy.

The Brexit polls have also put a darker future of the world economy as the British people voted out of the European Union. Since the election, the price of gold has sky-rocketed, and the value of the Great Britain Pound has plunged significantly. Soros predicted that Britain’s exit from the European Union would be messy, and it would also cast problems to the global economy. While Soros has gained from the rising gold prices, other investors are following his way and as he recently expressed doubts about the future of the European Union to stay united.

Some analysts say that the surge in the price of gold is just a safe-haven-demand, calling it temporary. However, some analysts believe that the panicking investors are just overreacting to the Brexit situation which is going to take some time to be implemented and take effect. There is no doubt the confidence in the world economy is falling which is the reason Soros chose the bearish option. Soros has described other problems affecting the global economy such as immigration, the Syrian crisis, the threat of terrorism from ISIS and other groups, the Russian-Ukrainian crisis, and the geopolitical issues would affect the value of the U.S. dollar and derail the world economy.

Together, the duo grew the small homeless shelter, located in Collin County, into a huge operation that feeds about 200 people daily. In addition, it runs on an annual budget of about $3 million.

In addition, the two also built a transitional apartment complex located in North Texas, started a thrift store and fostered a family shelter (currently under construction) worth $7 million. As a result of their successful endeavors together, Lynne Sipiora convinced Sparks to foster innovative, unconventional and economically feasible business ideas from entrepreneurs that result in social success.

This innovative concept aims to offer financial assistance to entrepreneurs with viable ideas. 15 years back, Sparks and Sipiora managed the Samaritan Inn with a $5,000 budget. Using this budget, they managed to build a pet kennel at the shelter, cover the cost of kid’s lessons and camps as well as fueled the Inn’s shuttle bus for a whole year.

How the Program Works

All applicants are required to submit their online applications before July 15, 2016. Thereafter, all applications will be thoroughly reviewed and shortlisted to three finalists.
