As a positive result of the challenges, we saw a doubling in voters to 715 as well as yet another record year of 33,000 votes versus 19,000 in 2020.

Mr. Fred Newcomb has been the owner and President of Newcomb & Company and a registered securities principal over the course of a half century, has created numerous startling innovations in the investment world, stirring observers and participants to call him a “legendary investor”. Newcomb & Company, a broker/dealer and member firm of the NASD/FINRA, specialized in financial services institutional and mutual fund building, development and sales, investment banking, wholesale syndications and the development of investment pools for large financial institutions and international government agencies. The firm also served as a consulting firm in the financial services and general business industries. Mr. Newcombs accomplishments in investment banking have ranged from arranging the financing of Samsungs entry into the computer market in the United States in the commercial arena, to the creation and sales of investment companies in the mutual fund, insurance, hedge fund and venture capital industries.

Prior to froming Newcomb and Company, he was President of AIM Financial Services, a provider of software, systems, data processing and mutual fund transfer agency services to the financial services industry. Prior to AIM, Mr. Newcomb was employed by Putnam, where he was Vice President of the Putnam Daily Dividend Trust and Senior Vice President and Director of Marketing for Putnam and Eberstadt, initially doubling assets through working in the areas of load mutual fund distribution through broker/dealers, the introduction to no load institutional and retirement markets and the creation of the bank market for the Putnam Funds, which then became one-half of Putnams half billion asset base. Prior to Putnam he was Director of Marketing for the Scudder Funds for eleven years.

In the insurance industries, he served in several management positions at NEL Equity Services Corp. including national sales manager for equity products, a broker/dealer and distributor for New England Life Insurance Company, the firm that acquired Mr. Newcomb's first financial services industry employer, Loomis Sayles & Company, where he was an officer of the Loomis Sayles Funds.

A pioneer of the mutual fund industry, Mr. Newcomb was one of the founders and directors of the No Load Mutual Fund Association, where he served as President. He also was a director and Executive Committee member of the National Investment Company Services Association as well a member of the Investment Company Institute and the Investment Counsel Association. His industry firsts include: the first cash management system for individuals and corporations of money market funds; the first wire transfer between unaffiliated investment companies; the inclusion of 403(b) plans placed into ERISA; the first mutual fund 401(k) plan filed and produced under ERISA; and the first international mutual fund management company merger, involving Loomis Sayles Canadian & International Fund and Scudder International Investments Fund.

He provided the original consulting for the formation of the Morgan Stanley Mutual Funds, built the Alexander Hamilton Life Variable Annuities and restructured the investment company services structure for Riggs Bank of Washington, DC. Mr. Newcomb has also built international and foreign fund portfolios outside of the United States.

An integral part of Mr. Newcomb’s work has been the reorganization of the structure and operation of mutual funds and their service support systems to ensure stronger compliance, reduce costs, provide superior service and to increase sales and assets. The background and experience to do this work was at the many fine and prestigious investment firms in his earlier career that provided Mr. Newcomb with the opportunity to create, build, sell, deliver and support what became billions of dollars of industry assets as an NASD/FINRA Registered General Securities Principal and Registered Representative licensed to sell securities. 

Mr. Newcomb is a graduate of Boston University with a double degree in English and American Literature, attended the University of Maine School of Management and is a graduate of the Career Life Underwriting School. He has served on the Board of Directors of the US Boston Funds and Board of Advisers of General Defense Systems and other various companies.

Today, Commonwealth and JPMorgan Chase announced their collaboration to address the challenges and opportunities that emerging technologies present to lower- and moderate-income people’s financial lives. As part of the two-year initiative, Commonwealth will conduct research, understand and document the financial landscape for financially vulnerable people, examining usage patterns of emerging technologies with a focus on how they garner trust.

Emerging technology is already shaping the financial landscape, and COVID-19 has only accelerated its disruption. 64% of financial services executives expect to become mass adopters of AI and 77% expect AI to be an essential driver across the industry within two years. Lower-income workers are already experiencing barriers to financial services. Commonwealth data shows 43% of lower income workers do not have a savings account. But as fintechs and social impact innovators progress towards folding technology like artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics into their products, a major risk exists.

If the needs of financially vulnerable, lower- and moderate-income Americans are not addressed, our financial system will become even more fractured. But if they are, the financial landscape could shift to include new people and drive widespread financial security and opportunity.

“Emerging technology will play a central role in the post-COVID economy--but the question is, will this hurt or help America’s most financially vulnerable?” said Commonwealth Co-Founder and Executive Director Timothy Flacke. “A time of disruption provides an opportunity to include new people in the financial system--but only if technology is intentionally designed and distributed based on a thorough understanding of the needs and aspirations of these customers.”

This initiative builds on Commonwealth’s prior work with JPMorgan Chase, which tested savings tools for lower-wage workers. Commonwealth will research, understand and document the financial landscape for financially vulnerable people, examining usage patterns of emerging technologies with a focus on how they garner trust. The initiative will examine how emerging technologies can address acute financial challenges faced by financially vulnerable people during COVID-19, and on the path to recovery.

Data will be disaggregated by race, gender and age, and will consider the role of place, recognizing that economic disruptions often have different impacts across communities. As part of this effort, fintech and nonprofit innovators will field test research findings on the ground with their financially vulnerable consumers to produce more accurate, nuanced insights.

Commonwealth will produce tools and resources that inform and influence fintech and social impact innovators to harness the power of emerging technologies like big data analytics and artificial intelligence in a way that addresses the needs of financially vulnerable Americans--transforming the landscape for decades to come. Importantly, the project will include discussions and collaboration with key stakeholders, fintechs and experts in emerging technology and ultimately findings will be disseminated through digital assets and events including a private stakeholder convening and a public webinar.

Commonwealth has a long track record of helping financially vulnerable people build savings and financial security. For the past 20 years, the organization has built innovative solutions that make people financially secure and work towards financial opportunity for all, helping people accumulate over B in savings.

Offshore Protection: Why Covid-19 May Leave Assets Exposed

PANAMA CITY – July 31 2020 – Living in an a time of uncertainty makes future proofing your assets essential. Having a financial plan in place guarantees you will not be left unprepared for what tomorrow might bring. 

Forming an offshore protection strategy is about securing your assets for the future. Today it is easier than ever to secure that future using an overseas account. An offshore bank account gives you privacy, spreads your risk, and diversifying your assets. Offshore Protection provides the offshore strategies you need to survive tomorrow.

Financial diversification is to ensure all your eggs are not held in the same basket. The solution; have more than one basket. Offshore diversification strategies spread your eggs across several accounts, in different currencies and countries. Offshore diversification is the single most effective strategy to safeguard your wealth for tomorrow.

Having your assets in a separate banking system provides a measure of security that protects against domestic issues such as currency fluctuation, political uncertainty and economic downturn. 

Forming an offshore trust or creating a LLC is also used as means to protect assets that may be exposed to unnecessary levels of risk. They provide additional levels of protection, confidentiality and security through proper offshore structuring that separates an individual from a group of assets.

Uncertainty is perhaps the greatest destabilising force that can break havoc on banks, markets and the economy. Without the assurances of tomorrow people lose their trust in institutions. While accounts, trusts and currency can help to minimise the damage of any uncertainty, perhaps the greatest tool for freedom is a second passport.

https://www.offshore-protection.com/passport-residency-and-citizenship

A second passport gives you the freedom to chose your future whatever the circumstances by ensuring you more travel options and most importantly a second country where you are treated like a first class citizen.

Your life is exposed to unnecessary levels of risk when it is kept all together within a single single banking institution, currency denomination or geographical area. The consequences can be sudden and devastating. The current crises is might just be an early warning sign of whats to come. Everything happens in cycles and the last downturn of 2008 the entire world felt the repercussions of an unstable banking industry. What uncertainty might be around the corner?

An offshore protection plan is about preparation. Preparing yourself for whatever may come by creating a strategy that suits your individual circumstances and the needs of the day.

How has DeletePersonalInformation.com Saved Online Reputation of Many People?

There’s no doubt about the fact that the internet has made life extremely easy for us. However, apart form enjoying its benefits, many of us also face a downside – damage of privacy and reputation. While the former requires us to delete personal information from Google, the latter can be solved by removing articles, complaints and reviews from the internet.

Yes, that’s right, even if you’re not the publisher, if any post or link involves your name without your consent, you have the right to get the link edited or deleted. Doing it by yourself might be a hassle, which is why, you need an online reputation management team.

One such professional team that works upon saving online reputation and privacy of individuals is Delete Personal Information

When Do You Need an ORM Firm Delete Personal Information from Google?

Your personal information consists of your name, personal contact details, residential address, personal photographs, bank details, and passwords. It is freaking out when you type your name on the google search bar for fun and actually find your profile visible in the search results page.

The reason why it is a problem is because the dark web can misuse this information for anything. This may include hacking of your accounts on social media, hacking of your credit card from online shopping sites which lead to theft and circulation of information among criminals.

Sometimes, your name on the internet is a lot more than just display of personal information. When it’s up on a news or PR website tainted with an accusation, it leads to spoiling of your reputation. There can be many ways in which the internet spoils your reputation:

  • You could be having a criminal record – which may be false, partially true or true
  • If you’re a professional, you could be having bad reviews
  • Your visibility on a porn site also comes under a negative link since it is illegal
  • Any other news about you that is negative and can damage your reputation

Merely deleting social media profiles may not be enough if your personal information is already there in the dark web. You surely won’t have control over the external site where article about you is written. People say that contacting the website owner is the first step you should take.

Thus, approaching a professional online reputation management firm will help you get all your personal information deleted permanently from the internet.

ScoreData helps solve this problem by helping consumers negotiate better deals with their creditors while also ensuring that institutional loss ratios are minimized. We use advanced AI and machine learning to match consumer propensities to pay while optimizing the return on institutional portfolios.

“ScoreData is delighted to be partnering with Impact Venture Capital. We were very grateful for their steadfast support all through the Covid19 lockdown, their deep diligence across our customers and partners, and their insights into markets, and their extensive corporate network,” said Vas Bhandarkar, CEO of ScoreData Corporation. “We partnered with Impact Venture Capital because they deliver value, beyond capital infusion, helping us forge partnerships with market leading organizations.”

Good Steward Financial Company, LLC Announces New Services for Nonprofit Establishments

Good Steward Financial Company, a virtual bookkeeping and CFO service provider in Burlington, NC, is now working with nonprofits to help these establishments stay on top of their finances. Jasmine Simpson, Chief Executive Officer at Good Steward Financial Company, is working with her team to help nonprofits effectively manage organization finances to ensure missions are able to be carried out.

When organizations fail to keep required records, they are unable to show they qualify for an exemption and may lose their tax-exempt status. Nonprofits work hard to serve a mission that they believe in, and these great causes shouldn’t be interrupted by financial administrative tasks. My firm is here to help these groups keep doing what they love without having to deal with the burden of financial records. It is our mission to serve those who serve others.”

That is why we developed our solution to help advisors streamline meeting documentation, win back precious time for their practice and vastly improve the client experience.”

Today, Broker/Dealers and Registered Independent Advisors (RIAs) can take full advantage of Pulse360’s early access offerings: The basic package, which includes the ability to use micro-templates to save time on documentation and integrates with industry-leading CRMs, such as Redtail and Wealthbox, is per month for a limited time. The premium package, which includes the basic functionality, along with a digital notepad and Salesforce integration, and the ability to create annual meeting summaries in as little as 20 seconds, is per month for a limited time.

“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the way we work has changed, and it’s imperative that financial advisors work smarter, not harder,” continued Sheth. “We’ve made our software available today for that need, so they can now work better with enterprise-grade, cloud-based notes.”

The Pulse360 software can be implemented into financial advisors’ workflow in a matter of minutes, which can help them immediately demonstrate their value to customers and colleagues clearly, in written format. Pulse360 can help them with their fiduciary regulations with a secure, efficient, reliable suite of services.

New Startup Surges From Global Shutdown

At a time when employers are shifting to work from home platforms, remote staffing companies are ushering in the advancements in cloud computing, business management software, and other remote working solutions that can save companies from going bankrupt and help keep the economy afloat.

Kate Lister, President of Global Workplace Analytics, recently reported that working remotely will save U.S. employers over Billion a day in lost productivity due to COVID-19. Many other studies predict that the number of remote workers will continue to increase long after the pandemic is over.

Business management tools like Salesforce, Time Doctor, Trello, GoToMeeting and more have seen exponential growth over the past years but many small and mid-sized companies have still failed to get on board. These same platforms increase productivity and collaboration across teams whether working in the office or remotely. Clark Staff CEO, Zack Williamson was quoted saying, “Most companies have already been on the fence about remote staffing for years but now the global pandemic is giving them that extra push and I guess that puts us in the right place at the right time.”

Clark Staff is a newly launched brand and a wholly owned subsidiary of The Lead Tree Intl. Inc. with offices in the US, UK and Clark Freeport Economic Zone of the Philippines. To find out more information regarding their remote staffing solutions contact Russell Meiselman at Russell@ClarkStaff.com or visit https://clarkstaff.com.

Institutional Investor Unveils 2020 All-Japan Executive Team Rankings

(TOKYO, April 16, 2020) – Today, Institutional Investor Research announced results of their 8th Annual All-Japan Executive Team survey, revealing Japan’s leading CEOs, CFOs, Investor Relations Officers, and Investor Relations programs that best uphold corporate governance standards and facilitate investment into their company. A total of 99 companies attained a published position in the categories listed above to become an Honored company, and 61 of those companies were granted the coveted Most Honored Company recognition by ranking in 2 or more of these categories. 

Results highlights 

A joint achievement this year as four companies across four different sectors attain the same highest weighted score across the 99 Honored companies. The winning sectors covered Beverages, Food & Tobacco, Electronics/Components, Electronics/Consumer and Electronics/Industrials (including Semiconductors). All four of the Most Honored Companies also attained first position in the ESG category.

New entrant Aisin Seiki Co. entered the Auto Parts sector for the first time emerging number One. In the Construction sector, the Honored Companies were completely different from last year’s, whilst in the Chemicals sector, Nissan Chemical jumped to 1st place with almost double the points of the number two. In the hotly contested sector Electronics/Industrial, Hitachi climbed to number one from number two last year, underscoring their increased efforts in investor engagement.

As the competition for capital intensifies, corporates are finding it increasingly more difficult to get investors’ attention. This, coupled with the changing corporate access landscape and relationships between the buy-side, sell-side and corporates; corporates are finding investor engagement becoming more competitive. Nonetheless, 349 investors and portfolio managers and analysts from 189 voter firms participated in this survey, nominating a total of 490 companies across 24 sectors.

For the first time, to calibrate the CEO score, we asked questions on their credibility, leadership and quality of communication. To determine the best CFO, we added the scores given to the CFO’s ability in capital allocation, financial stewardship and quality of communication. In awarding companies the best IR Programs, investors assessed based on 3 broad categories of disclosure, ESG and overall services & communications.

“The current investor environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented. Companies need to be agile to adjust to the new landscape and this includes not only to respond to the increasingly challenging business environment but also to position themselves well to tap into the capital markets, should they need to. In engaging with investors, many have turned to online platforms or conference calls, this means reaction of your audience is more difficult to gauge. Your messages need to be clear, concise and ask for feedback more often,” said Cara Eio, Head of Asia Pacific, Institutional Investor Research. 

The 2020 All-Japan Executive Team Most Honored Companies* List 

*A business that earns a top-three position in one of the four categories — Best CEO, Best CFO, Best IR Professional and Best IR Company — is deemed an Honored Company. To earn the designation of Most Honored Company, it must achieve two or more top-three appearances; rank is determined by weighted score wherein each first-place position is worth three points; second place, two; and third place, one. Most Honored Companies are listed above Honored Companies regardless of score. When a tie exists in the weighted score, companies are ordered according to the number of ranked positions they receive in their industry sectors.

Smart2Pay Adds Ant Financial’s HUABEI Credit Card To Its Payments Portfolio

Smart2Pay, the company with the world's largest coverage of online alternative payment solutions, has added Huabei credit solution to its 200+ payment methods portfolio.

With this new feature, Smart2Pay offers its Merchants an additional means to tapping into the Chinese market, besides the popular methods like Alipay, Wechat Pay and UnionPay that Smart2Pay already offers.

Huabei is Ant Financial’s virtual credit card for its Chinese users. Some internal shareholders estimated that, of Alipay’s 900 million Chinese users, more than half have created Huabei accounts. Huabei literally means ‘just spend’ and is generally perceived as a microlender.

Huabei may be used for all online and offline purchases via Alipay wallet. Users of Alipay can set Huabei as their default payment option, meaning that their purchases are first made with credit before funds are debited from their Alipay account. As well, when Huabei is used to shop, the user must return the amount of the payment on the 9th of the next month. There is an interest-free period of up to 41 days. Merchants offering Huabei can see conversion increase by up to 40%.

Huabei was launched in April 2015 by Ant Financial as a way for users of its wallet solution Alipay to fund purchases on ecommerce platforms run by Ant Financial’s affiliate, Alibaba group, such as Tmall and Taobao. Huabei’s main user base is made up of individuals born after the 80s and 90s, accounting for around 80% of the total users. Since Huabei’s launch, Ant Financial has been expanded the service to more online and offline merchants.

James Flinterman, CEO of Smart2Pay: We are proud to add Huabei via Alipay to our already extensive Chinese payment methods portfolio. We constantly improve and expand our services in direct relation to market dynamics. We are confident that, with this latest addition, our Merchants and partners will successfully expand further their business in a very digitally-oriented and lucrative market like China.

About Ant Financial’s Alipay

Alipay is a mobile payment method founded by Jack Ma’s Alibaba Group in 2004 and which allows users to create a digital wallet to store, top up and pay online or in store for products and services. It is one of the most popular methods of payment in China and is also available in many Asian markets, as well as in Europe, US and Canada.

Ant Financial’s chairman and CEO Eric Jing said on Alibaba’s 2019 Investor Day, held in Hangzhou, that Alipay (900m users) and its international e-wallet partners (300m users) have collectively served around 1.2 billion users worldwide.

About Smart2Pay

Smart2Pay offers a single API for all payment services to international Merchants, covering credit card and local payment options throughout the world! By using Smart2Pay, you will be offering the preferred local method of payment to your global Customers, thus significantly boosting your sales!

Nomura and Daiwa are joint No. 1 on Institutional Investor’s 27th Annual All-Japan Research Team Survey

Even with the uncertainty of the markets in the current situation, a light shines with excellence among Japanese sell-side researchers, as demonstrated by the leaders of the All-Japan Research Team Survey.

Daiwa Securities Group and Nomura achieve joint first place this year on Institutional Investor's exclusive annual firm-based rankings of Japan’s best sell-side analysts, weighted by commissions paid by the street.  

Both companies have a total of 28 firm-based positions as well as 32 (Daiwa) and 26 (Nomura) analyst positions. Mizuho Securities claims third place with 25 firm-based positions, closely followed by SMBC Nikko Securities which came in with 23 firm-based positions. Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Co. follows in fifth place to round out this year’s winners.

J.P Morgan accomplishes sixth place on both rankings and earns the title of this year’s highest ranking non-domestic firm. UBS and Citi, two other non-domestic firms, closely follow suit in seventh and eighth positions on both rankings.

14 firms are represented in this year's results, with Daiwa Securities jumping 3 spots to be equal first in the Team Leaders Table weighted by commission. Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley staged a comeback jumping two spots to fifth place whilst international brokers UBS, BofA Securities and Jefferies showed improvement.

“The Japanese brokers continue to consolidate their positions as we enter the second year of MiFID II,” said Cara Eio, Head of Asia Pacific, II Research. “We also saw an increased interest in II’s ranking results from the buy side as access to research becomes more selective.”

The 2020 All-Japan Research Team reflects the opinions of more than 800 portfolio managers and analysts at 365 institutions that collectively manage an estimated .1 trillion in Japanese equities and billion in Japanese fixed income. 

A total of 160 firm positions and 164 analysts appear on this year's roster, which is limited to the top three squads in each sector, plus runners-up where applicable. The full report names 784 researchers, representing 30 entities, who met minimum-vote and other eligibility criteria.

Kabbage Launches Kabbage Insights™, Allowing Small Businesses To Take Control of Their Cash Flow With Just a Few Clicks

Kabbage, Inc. today launched Kabbage Insights, a fully automated tool that calculates and predicts cash-flow patterns to help small businesses identify cash surpluses and deficits. With the launch, Kabbage addresses one of the most vexing problems faced by small business owners. The new product comes just one month after the public launch of Kabbage Payments™, continuing the company’s rapid innovation to build a suite of integrated products that simplify cash-flow management for U.S. small businesses.

In less than 10 minutes, any small business can connect their real-time financial data to Kabbage Insights and access an analysis of their company’s historical, current and future cash-flow 24/7. The product continually evaluates the transaction activity of a customer over a 90-day period and organizes it in an easy-to-understand dashboard, allowing customers to quickly visualize their net growth without taking the time to calculate it themselves. Kabbage’s customer base of over 220,000 small businesses has immediate access.

As a leader in predictive analytics and artificial intelligence for small businesses, Kabbage Insights produces personalized forecasts to predict the future cash position of a business. Customers can then set a desired low-balance threshold and receive automated alerts if accounts are predicted to dip below it, empowering small businesses to identify, act upon and prevent cash deficits before they occur.

Paired with the Kabbage Small Business Revenue Index, Kabbage Insights is also the first product available that allows small businesses to compare their company’s performance to similarly-sized businesses operating in their state and industry. The result is an unparalleled cash-flow tool that’s free for small businesses, helping them to anticipate changes, benchmark their growth, plan ahead and make more confident business decisions like when to cut expenses, invest or borrow.

With Kabbage Insights, small businesses can:

  • Review cash-flow on the go via the intuitive mobile dashboard.
  • Analyze daily performance and review money movement at a glance.
  • Borrow strategically with forecast data to inform funding decisions.
  • Save time, as studies show 91 percent of small business owners spend as many as 20 hours per week manually calculating cash flow.

 

“As a small business owner for many years, I spent many sleepless nights trying to figure out whether I’d have the cash to pay my various expenses, including payroll at the end of the month and it’s been a mission of mine to solve this ubiquitous problem for all small business owners ever since,” said Kabbage CEO Rob Frohwein. “Kabbage is pleased to launch Insights, taking on this burden for small business owners and providing them with cash flow analyses that large enterprises have at their fingertips. We will continue to level the playing field for the small business owner.”

Freedom Financial Network Closes Fifth Securitization, Four Times Oversubscribed

Freedom Financial Network (FFN), the parent company of Freedom Financial Asset Management, has closed its fifth securitization, placing 4 million of rated notes, four times oversubscribed by investors.

The securitization highlights the continued shift of the loan mix towards FFN’s growing FreedomPlus program. For the first time, fully 100% of the collateral has come from FreedomPlus, which provides primarily debt-consolidation personal loans to consumers.

Total securitization issue
The company’s latest securitization brings its total issuance across all five transactions to more than .9 billion. FFN has originated more than .7 billion of FreedomPlus loans to date and over .4 billion in total loans on its Freedom Financial Asset Management (FFAM) platform.

Consistent with its previous securitizations, announced in 2018 and 2019, underwriting the most recent transaction were Credit Suisse, which served as the lead manager and structuring agent, and SunTrust, which served as a joint book runner. In addition, this securitization is bringing in 29 unique investors.

The Class A, Class B and Class C fixed notes were rated A3 (sf), Baa3 (sf) and Ba3 (sf) by Moody’s. The Class A, Class B and Class C fixed-rate notes were rated A (high) (sf), BBB (high) (sf) and BB (low) (sf) by DBRS Morningstar, Inc. The Class A, Class B and Class C fixed-rate notes were rated A (sf), BBB (sf) and BB (sf) by Kroll.

Groundbreaking market differentiators
“The market differentiators we have created and put in place for FreedomPlus are driving our continued success,” says Joseph Toms, president and chief investment officer at FFAM. “From the start of the FreedomPlus program in 2013, it has made loan payments directly to creditors to provide consumers with convenience as well as the financial discipline to become debt-free. FreedomPlus was the first lender in the industry to offer this program, facilitating debt consolidation and payoff for consumers.”

Today, approximately 70% of FreedomPlus loans leverage this ability to pay creditors directly, by far the highest percentage in the industry, according to Toms. The FreedomPlus program also offers discounts to applicants with a co-borrower and for those with more than ,000 in retirement funds.

“The success of this securitization, with 100% FreedomPlus collateral, demonstrates the compelling nature of Freedom’s growing product suite. It serves as one more point of confirmation that we have created a solid, long-term lending platform that works for both consumers and investors,” says Toms. “With transactions such as these, we can look forward to a long road of helping consumers improve their financial health and wellness.”

FFAM offers personal loans to help consumers consolidate their debt, lower interest rates and convert revolving debt into lower-cost, more consumer-friendly installment loans. Using a combination of process, technology and analytics, along with a focus on human interaction to hear directly from consumers about their financial needs, FFAM provides long-term risk-adjusted returns for investors in consumer lending.

Homeopaths and Pharmacists Collaborate to Release First and Only X-energy CBD Water

Silver Springs Water, Inc. facilitated the wellness project that combined the health benefits of CBD and alkaline water for maximum health benefits through homeopathic methodologies.

Alkalized water has a high pH, facilitating negatively charged ionized water at bottling, which introduces antioxidants into the body’s system with a quick absorption rate. While alkalized water has been a homeopathic product for a long time, X-energy CBD Water is the very first alkalized water that also includes CBD.

X-energy CBD Water is the culmination of research and collaboration between Silver Spring Water, Inc., and pharmacists, homeopaths, and hemp experts spanning years. Each bottle contains an average of 10mg of CBD extracted from hemp seed and integrated into X-energy CBD Water through serial dilution and rapid agitation. Hemp is not simply added to water, it is infused into the water through this process.

Pure CBD Hemp, which is a cannabinoid that contains under 0.3% THC, is no longer a controlled substance and does not need approval by the FDA. Although “homeopathic” products are not strictly governed by the FDA, claims of health benefits of CBD are. Health benefits, including inflammation reduction, stress and anxiety relief, seizure reduction, ease digestion and more from CBD are not approved by the FDA and are purely anecdotal. Alkalized water has been found to have anti-aging properties, support the immune system and increase skin health. When combined with CBD, these benefits may be enhanced.

People taking X-energy CBD Water have done so for a wide range of purposes. Their claims of success are based on how it is ingested, and at which quantities and intervals. Direct comments from users recommend drinking the bottle in 2-3 minutes for a quick energy boost. If the goal is “general” body maintenance, one to two bottles a day are recommended. If the goal is significant improvement in overall health, immunity, or to address specific issues, drinking 2-3 bottles each day is recommended to get the necessary negative ion and CBD energy intake to meet accelerating health and wellness goals.

For more information on X-energy CBD Water, call 877-453-6223 or visit www.xenergywater.com.

Energy Marketing Conferences Announces its Next Free Educational Virtual Seminar for the Retail Energy Industry

This seminar will identify positive and negative regulatory trends that you can expect to spread throughout North American markets in the next several years. We will then outline a four-step process you can use to stay on top of your obligations, out of trouble, and focused on growing your business.

The presenter: will be Frank Caliva III.  As president of P.R. Quinlan, Frank helps energy companies understand and respond successfully to public policy opportunities and challenges. Frank and his team have over three decades of experience in retail electricity, natural gas, and clean energy markets, with specific experience working in retail energy markets in more than 21 U.S. states and three (3) Canadian provinces, P.R. Quinlan’s team of professionals provides reliable and informed regulatory and political insight; drafts and delivers testimony in both regulatory and legislative venues; and builds issue coalitions and alliances with other stakeholders on a regular basis.

MyBankTracker Announces Best of Banking Awards for 2019 - Chase, Axos Bank and Alliant Credit Union Among the Best Banks

MyBankTracker.com, a leading financial comparison site that matches consumers to their perfect bank, announced its annual Best of Banking Awards for 2019. The editorial staff analyzed and compared top financial institutions and products throughout the United States across various categories.

MyBankTracker.com increased the number of honors in years past from seven to 13 with additions like the best finance apps, investing tools and robo-advisors. Selections were made by evaluating criteria such as benefits, fees, interest rates, ATM access and other factors.

“When we curated our awards years ago, the focus was on banks,” said Jason Reposa, CEO and co-founder of MyBankTracker.com. “However, with the financial space constantly evolving we decided to change the awards in our tenth year. Now, we not only honor the best banks, but also a variety of financial products that help consumers manage their money on a daily basis such as apps, automated services, and loans.”

Chase took home the award for the best national bank because of its full range of deposit accounts, credit cards, extensive financial services, and investment offerings. The large branch and ATM network and mobile apps also played a part. The best online bank award went to Axos Bank for its free rewards and high-interest checking account, unlimited domestic ATM fee refunds, and no overdraft fees.

Alliant Credit Union was named the best credit union for 2019 for its availability nationwide, lenient membership eligibility requirements, low fees, and competitive interest rates. Four geographic winners were given the honor of best regional bank. Popular Bank received the award for the Northeast with BBVA Compass winning in the South. In the West, Bank of the West received the honor with Huntington Bank taking home the award in the Midwest.

“We’re on a mission - changing the way consumers bank. For years, they had to fit their needs into whatever a bank offered. Now, with tools like the Best of Banking Awards, they can find products to best fit their situation. MyBankTracker.com is putting consumers first,” Reposa noted.

Staff also examined the checking, savings and CD accounts at the biggest traditional banks, online banks, and credit unions to determine which was superior in its product group. Multiple winners were announced in numerous product categories including checking accounts, savings accounts, personal loans, certificates of deposit (CDs), money market accounts, credit cards, brokerages, robo-advisors, money-management apps, tax apps and automatic savings/investing apps. To see the full list of winners and runners-up, visit MyBankTracker.com/banking.

“We want consumers to grow their money in 2019 and decrease charges with features like no-fee accounts - ultimately maximizing their returns. Of course, everyone’s situation is different, so research is key. Not everyone has the time, so our awards can help get consumers on the right financial track to save money in the new year,” Reposa said. “Our advice? Be present. Review your statements. Educate yourself about paying your future you. You’ll likely end up with more money in your pocket.”

Methodology 
The awards were chosen based on various criteria to include fees, interest rates, ATM access and perks. For more information on the methodology and participating banks, visit MyBankTracker.com/banking.

Platinum Risk Advisors Launches the Ultimate 10-Minute Outsourced CECL Solution for Banks and Credit Unions

Platinum Risk Advisors (PRA) announces the launch of Loan Portfolio Analytics (LPA), an innovative outsourced solution to assist banks and credit unions in complying with the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting standard. Dubbed the “10-minute CECL Solution,” LPA brings the industry’s first fully outsourced analytics tool for adopting and complying with CECL that also provides its users with valuable insights into the inherent risk in their loan portfolios and the performance of their loan officers.

Issued in June 2016 by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), CECL is the new “expected loss” accounting model for estimating the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) to replace the current “incurred loss” model. CECL compliance takes effect in 2020 for SEC-filing and other banks considered a Public Business Entity under FASB standards, and in 2021 for all other financial institutions.

LPA is a complete outsourced solution that maps between the bank or credit union’s data processing system and PRA’s platform, enabling lenders to: 

  • Calculate the ALLL using three widely accepted methods under CECL as well as the lender’s existing methodology. PRA’s clients can evaluate which method or combination of methods for calculating CECL works best for them.
  • Generate various reports and graphs to assess the inherent risk in their loan portfolios as well as the performance of their loan officers.
  • Obtain valuable insights from a team of CPAs, former bankers, actuaries, and risk management consultants. PRA’s clients will obtain verifiable evidence to support the subjective adjustments in their ALLL calculations as well as strategies on how to manage and price for risk within their loan portfolios.

The 10-Minutes CECL Solution

The impact of PRA’s loan portfolio analytics platform is immediate as lenders will spend less than 10 minutes a month to receive the valuable information provided by PRA’s solution. The LPA platform is stored on a SSAE#16 SOC 1 and SOC 2 compliant hosting solution that will keep a client’s borrower and institutional data confidential.

“LPA is the ultimate loan portfolio risk management tool for lenders,” says co-founder Toby Lawrence. “To our knowledge, it is the first CECL solution developed using the assistance of actuaries and provides users with additional information on risk, growth and profitability as well as loan officer performance." That’s a key point because as Lawrence explains, “with PRA’s solution, board of directors and senior management can finally have the information they have always wanted to strategically evaluate and manage their institution’s lending functions.”

As a CPA who was both a former senior partner in two of the nation’s largest certified public accounting firms, and a bank president and CEO, Lawrence knows first-hand how long and wide this industry gap has been, until now.

By understanding the concerns banks and credit unions would struggle with to implement and transition to CECL; the uncertainties surrounding what data is needed, what upgrades or new systems will be required and if existing internal staff will have the time to comply with CECL, served as the launch pad for the LPA platform versus the finish line to fully address the impact of CECL to each institution’s capital position and future earnings.

For a comprehensive sampling of LPA’s capabilities and a comparison to other CECL solutions, visit http://www.CECLadvisors.com. To schedule an individual or group demonstration contact Toby Lawrence at (319) 202-4365.

China Customer Relations Centers Announces Plans to Go Private and Return to A-share Market in China

Chinese government has implemented policies to encourage companies to return to A-share market. With the fast growth of China’s economy, China concept stock’s privatization is increasing in 2018 after a number of companies including WuXi AppTec, Mindray and Cheetah mobile went private to China’s A-share market.

On November 11, China Customer Relations Centers, Inc. (CCRC) has announced plans to go private to A-share market in China. 

CCRC’s announcement has led to more discussions by the capital market on privatization. Earlier this year, General Office of the State Council of China quoted China Securities Regulatory Commission’s (CSRC) policy during National People’s Congress and Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference that based on China’s law and market policy, they encouraged innovative companies to issue stocks in China, especially industries with new technologies and strategies such as biotech, cloud computing, AI and high-tech manufacturing.  

On October 19, 2018, CSRC announced during its press conference that they have taken steps to help restructure work including making reasonable prices to protect small and medium sized investors; actively supporting quality overseas listed companies to list in A-share market and treating overseas companies the same as domestic entities as well as eliminating barriers to entry.

Sources say, call centers and third-party providers of e commerce customer services are industries supported by Chinese government. This industry is labor-intensive with light assets and high tech. CCRC has advantages in this field. 

Based on Chinese internet research data, the total market size of Chinese domestic call center is about 630 billion RMB or 91.1 billion dollars in 2017. Because of the large industry size and the market stability, its annual growth rate is about 8.4% and after 2020, it is estimated to be 5.5%. Currently, call center system is transitioning from local servers to cloud servers. Cloud call centers has become the majority of this growing market.

Many industry experts consider CCRC an absolute pioneer in China’s call center and e commerce service third party provider industry, especially during this era that Chinese government encourages domestic listing of quality overseas companies. The business model will be easier to be recognized by investors in the A-share market than Nasdaq. It will also provide more growth in value in the future.

Gingkoo Shares Its Vision to Empower Economy by Using Blockchain at the UN GA

(Oct 30, 2018 New York) Gingkoo Technology of Shanghai presented its vision on being a leading blockchain company in China during the Cryptocurrencies & Blockchains Forum at the 73th UN General Assembly.  Gingkoo’s founder and CEO William Zuo gave a speech on how blockchain has been applied to the economy at the global conference in New York.

                                      Gingkoo founder William Zuo speaks at UN

Representing Georgia, France and Germany, the Leading Group on Innovative Financing for Development invited experts from government and private sectors to provide insight into blockchain technologies and the potential impact on development.  Blockchain technologies are critical to finance the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Gingkoo’s founder, William Zuo shared his vision on blockchain with government officials, experts and entrepreneurs. He pointed out that blockchain technology should serve society from five tiers of the economy: government, financial institutions, large corporations, small and medium size enterprise (SME) and individuals. 

Zuo says, “Blockchain should have two core values: one is the trust machine, with trust by coding and programming.  The other is to build the next generation value internet.”

Gingkoo, the Shanghai based fintech company has successfully applied blockchain technology to serve government and financial institutions clients worldwide.

In Guangzhou, Gingkoo has guided local government in adopting a blockchain solution to improve government affairs and transparency, which has been awarded as the top 10 Blockchain Application by China Ministry of Information and Industry. They also created a garbage classification solution by using blockchain+IOT technology for the local governments. The company deployed a food traceability project from northern china to address the problem of food safety concerns in China.

In the financial services arena, Gingkoo’s cases include payment and tax solutions, supply chain finance and Regtech solutions. Gingkoo’s clients include major commercial and central banks such as HSBC, Citibank, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and UBS etc.

As the biggest solution provider for CIPS, China cross border payment system of China central bank, Gingkoo has been a key player to support the country’s  one Belt one Road Initiatives and to develop blockchain-enabled cross-border, cross-currency and cross-asset payments and logistics solutions, which could revolutionize the supply chain finance sector worldwide.  

Meanwhile, David Ritter, CEO of Penta and co-founder of Gingkoo, Florie Zheng joined the meeting and shared Penta’s work progress on blockchain.  Penta, a public chain, is leading the solution of identity issues for the homeless population in US west coast cities. In July 2018, Penta was the first blockchain crypto startup to complete acquisition of shares of AXS listed Australian IOT tech Company, CCP Technologies, using Penta’s PNT Cryptocurrency.

Zuo pointed out the other advantage of blockchain is to resolve the trust issue among SME. Gingkoo has used blockchain technology in Xiamen City to help SME financing and individual credit information sharing. This case was one of the first successful attempts in its field and was shared by Zuo at the Berlin World Bank SME Financing Summit in Nov. 2017. 

As Gingkoo aims to be the first blockchain application solution provider in China, Zuo shared his vision on the future of blockchain, “I think blockchain should be green, inclusive and productive. I think everyone in the future will deserve opportunity of the blockchain.” His speech has been applauded by hundreds of attendants at the UN event.

On September 4 and 5, Wiliam Zuo gave a speech as an honored guest at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s first ever Blockchain Policy Forum in Paris, which was considered one of the high-level discussions with a range of public officials and private leaders from all over the world.

Or when they simply browse through insuance companies and agents or look for the top 10 insurance companies and agents for over 230 insurance categories that the platform supports. It becomes the insurers reputation all around the platform.

On the other hand, it also provides full information on companies and agents and allows agents and brokers to deliver quotes online through the carriers they work with via the easy to use marketplace platform. The agents insurance marketplace is fast, reliable and user friendly and contains a stream of insurankers that are waiting for agents to give them bids and quotes for their insurance needs.
