Madison Street Capital Provides Investment Banking Guidance

Many people do not know what to look for when looking for an investment banker to assist in making an intricate financial deal, an acquisition of managing a merger of some kind. There are a few things that should be considered like experience, trust, support, and history of the firm you are dealing with. Madison Street Capital is an international investment banking firm that was created with integrity and has a strong track record of assisting companies make money from all locations spanning North America, Africa and Asia. They have worked with both privately and publicly funded business to provide sound financial information and guidance.

2015 was a year that can be viewed either positively or negatively when it comes to hedge fund activity. It seems that many traditional hedge fund investments only returned a mediocre amount but the amount of interest in investing in the hedge fund asset at an all time high. This made 2015 one of the more active years in recent memory and forecasts big things for 2016. There are a lot of innovative deal mechanisms being used to allow for the satisfaction of both buyers and sellers in the mergers & acquisition market. There are a lot of different mechanisms being used apart from traditional mergers and acquisitions. Incubator or seed deals are being structured to help the market move forward. Consolidation of the assets of the difficult and complicated hedge fund market can be expected over the next year. This will occur as eager fund managers seek opportunities to link production with distribution in business.

Madison Street Capital has been right at the heart of this market guiding their clients toward positive decisions and increased wealth. They have chosen to take an approach that emphasizes the focus on middle market companies. It was not long ago that they saw a need to help mergers and acquisitions in this market. Many of the larger markets were already oversaturated but there was a need in promoting the M&A in the middle markets. They were incorporated in 2011 and since that time they have managed funds valued at $130,000 annually. They have increased the size of their funding consistently over the years and it would seem that would continue in the future.

Investment banks like Madison Street Capital provide a variety of services as a financial intermediary. It would be difficult to manage large and complex transactions without the skills an investment bank provides. They work on underwriting, connect the investing public with security issuers, facilitate corporate reorganizations like mergers. Some of the major investment banks are Merrill Lynch, Barclays, and Goldman Sachs. However today the industry is much more open to middle level players like Madison Street and the services they provide.

Andy Wirth Rises Again After Life Changing Incident

The Squaw Valley Ski Resort is well known for those who enjoy outdoor activities for the historic nature of this Lake Tahoe area winter sports haven, which is usually credited as being the first European style resort of its kind in North America.

However, what very few people know is the story of the CEO of the resort, Andy Wirth, and his battle to return to a normal life following a life changing accident suffered when skydiving.

A CrowdRise report suggests that Andy Wirth is not an archetypal CEO in the mold of those who generally run top resorts like Squaw valley; the German born CEO has always taken his own path, which has seen him become a volunteer firefighter and fight for the environment of the community he lives in – https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfSquawValley/posts/10152191670133708.

In recent times, the community of Olympic Valley has played a major role in the life of Andy Wirth as he has been trying to find the best ways of increasing tourism levels in his bid to aid the people of the area with a successful industry they can be proud of.

The skydiving incident was unexpected for a veteran of the activity who decided to take on high winds during a jump, but found himself blown off course and forced to land in a vineyard.

Andy Wirth struck a stake used to support the vines and had his arm severed; his training as a forest ranger served him well as he was able to avoid the shock he knew would almost certainly kill him.

After spending months in hospital care and rehabilitation facilities Andy Wirth has returned to work at Squaw Valley and returned to participating in triathlons as he did before his accident.

Raising money for the Navy Seal’s who inspired his recovery is just one step on the journey Andy Wirth continues to take as he returns to living his full and happy life.

FreedomPop Helps Customers Save Money

There are a lot of customers that are ditching their cell phone plans with major carriers because they are interested in the free cell phone service that has been offered by FreedomPop. This is the type of company that is totally changing the way that people utilize mobile services.

The cell phone industry is changing in leaps and bounds, and there is no longer a need to buy into an expensive cell phone contract. FreedomPop has totally eliminated the need for this. That is why this company is getting so much praise in the industry today. There is a lot of talk about how the mobile phone ads will be able to fund cheap phone deals. This is something that is ahead of the curve, because many other companies had not considered this. FreedomPop is giving customers the ability to acquire cheaper cell phones in addition to the free cell phone service that this company already offers. That is a real win-win situation for FreedomPop and customers. These cheaper phones are going to make more customers want to get connected to the wireless world through FreedomPop.

It has become quite evident that FreedomPop is one of the best companies for saving money on phone service, but not people can save on phones as well. That is great in a world where new phones are being released every couple of months. People that have access to free service do not want to be stuck with outdated phones. A lot of people have major cell phone carrier contracts will keep the contracts in order to get new upgrades because new phones are so expensive. Now that FreedomPop is providing cheaper cell phones people will still have the ability to get upgrades and take advantage of the free wireless service that is available.

Venezuela Fights Water Shortage

Venezuela is a country going through a lot of tough times. Economically according to Venezuelan Norka Luque, the country is suffering. A lack of medicine has contributed to a troubling health crisis. The nation’s woes are not even close to being finished. A water shortage is ravaging the land. Unless something is done to improve the situation, things are going to get worse in a number of ways.

A lack of water means a lack of hygiene and sanitation. In the shadow of medicine shortages, this is not good at all. Lack of water also leads to a lack of food. Farms are not exactly going to be able to grow significant crops if water shortages continue. The lack of water has also led to limited supplies of electricity. Rolling blackouts are occurring as a result.

The law of unintended consequences has now factored into the situation. Tourism to Venezuela has declined. A decline in tourism reduces the potential for the economy to make a comeback. Tourists, however, are not likely to visit a country in which water supplies are extremely limited.

How the situation will resolves itself remains to be seen. The Maduro government according to a corporation.wiki article is not very popular with the public, and forced changes in the political realm could lead to new, more proactive policies.

A new plan does have to be put into motion soon. The longer the water shortage continues, the worse the situation in Venezuela will become.

 

Giving Back To People By Using Skout’s Application

Meeting People On The Go

My job involves a great deal of traveling, and I really enjoy that aspect of what I do. I get to visit new cities, and I get to see new places of interest. Many of the cities I go to are major metropolitan areas. I recently found out about this application that helps you meet people online to build friendships with or for dating purposes. The application is called Skout, and it is available to download for free. The best part about this application, to me, is that it uses your location to find people near you, so you can meet people in your city tonight if you are using Skout.

They also unleashed a new travel feature for their users to enjoy. The travel feature lets users message and match with different people in any of the 180 different countries around the world that the application is available to. You can use the feature called Passport to meet people in a new country before you travel there. Doing this will allow you to have instant friends when your plane lands, or you can build a relationship with someone that way to have a close friend online in case you ever plan to visit their country. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks, and I tested it out while traveling to Texas. I had a great time with my new friend that I met through Skout’s platform.

Giving Back To Those In Need

One of my favorite things about Skout isn’t even their application (though it is a remarkable application). My favorite thing about Skout is something I found out just recently while browsing PR Newswire’s website. Apparently, Skout has been involved with the San Fransisco Marin Food Bank by helping to feed the hungry people in that area. I like working with a company that shows that it cares for people by actually taking action towards helping enrich their lives. Skout was founded in San Fransisco, and their efforts in helping people there can be found in this article.

Re/Max Will Expand in NYC

For the past forty years, Re/Max has been one of the largest and most competitive real estate brokerage and sales firms in the world. The company, which is based out of Denver, has over 100,000 employees across the world and reports annual revenue of over $170 million. While it is a huge company, it has not been very active in the New York City real estate market. While they have not been too active in the city in the past, Re/Max now appears ready to expand greatly in the NYC market.

Re/Max has stated that they are looking to open several new offices and hire hundreds of new agents and brokers across the city. Re/Max will likely find that while the city has a very strong real estate market, there is also a lot of competition. While Re/Max is used to competing against other larger national brokerage firms, in NYC they will also have to compete against smaller boutique firms that have a strong footprint in the city.

One of these boutique firms that Re/Max will compete against in Town Residential. Town Residential has been in business for under ten years, but has already built a quality reputation for its ability to successfully market, sell, and lease real estate in the city. The company is hired by both individual owners and large real estate developers to assist with brokerage and sales of new and existing real estate projects.

Town Residential is also considered an expert when it comes to market knowledge. The company is known for its newsletter, which is sent out every few months. The newsletter gives a good overview of the current trends in the city’s market, gives a synopsis of new projects coming online, and will even give some predictions for future changes in the city.
