David Osio Displaying International Business Leadership

Venezuelan businessman David Osio is the founder and CEO of the Davos Financial Group. He attended Catholic University Andres Bello in Venezuela and later earned a degree in International Banking Law from Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración (IESA). These degrees would provide the knowledge base for Osio’s success in business.

After graduation, Osio began his career as an executive of several businesses. Osio began work in 1981 managing a coffee export program as CEO of OPED Enterprise. Subsequently, he developed marketing programs for Letco Commercial Companies. In 1984, he finally put his International Banking Law degree to use when he went to work for the Caracas, Venezuelan law firm MGO. This position prepared him to eventually be offered a prominent position in the private banking division of Banco Latino International (BLI) in Miami. Shortly after being hired at BLI, he rose to the position of Vice President of Commercial Banking.

Armed with his education and extensive experience in executive positions, Osio founded Davos Financial Group in 1993. Osio envisioned that his newly formed company would provide financial advice to a wide range of clients in Latin America and eventually the entire world. His vision would come to fruition and Davos Financial would come to grow in cities to include New York, Panama, Geneva and Miami.

Apart of the Davos Financial Group is the Davos Real Estate Group (REG). Recently, Osio and leaders of the Davos Real Estate Group announced the launch of their new app: Davos CAP Calculator. The Calculator was developed to estimate the return on real estate investments. The application takes into account expenses associated with the piece of real estate considered by the client so that the estimated gain is more accurate. Clients will be able to forward real estate reports to REG, which will encourage a dialogue between investors and agents. These dialogues will be facilitated by way of interactive chats offered by the app.

In recent months REG has not only been developing the new Davos CAP Calculator but also developing new partnerships with international real estate agents. This has led to REG expanding its pool of agents by more than 60% and entering new markets in Europe.

Hedge Fund Wonder Boy Kyle Bass Is Betting That China’s Currency Will Tumble

 

The economic news coming out of China isn’t as bad as some of the recent projections by economists. The Chinese economy grew by 6.7 percent in the second quarter of 2016 compared to a 6.6 percent growth during the first quarter. Some economists believe China is manipulating the figures in order to squash the rumors that the country is headed for a major recession. There has been talk about China’s economic and financial woes for months, and some of the top investors in the business are betting that the Chinese government will have to continue to use capital reserves to keep the banks and their wobbly economy afloat. Kyle Bass, the former Bear Stearns executive that predicted the mortgage crisis in 2008 is one of those investors.

 

 

Bass made the decision to sell 75 percent of the stocks in his Hayman Capital portfolio, and he placed a huge bet that the Chinese yuan will be devalued against the U.S. Dollar and German mark over the next three years. Bass believes the yuan could lose 40 percent of its value if he is right about the real state of the Chinese economy. UsefulStooges tells us that Bass believes the Chinese banks are carrying too much bad debt on their books, and the government will be forced to wipe out those debts. Bass also believes that China’s real estate issues will also play a role in the demise of the yuan. But Bass may have picked a bigger foe in China this time. The Chinese play by their own rules.

 

 

Kyle Bass has not been as successful as he was eight years ago, especially over the last two years. Bass backed the victims of the General Motors airbag and power steering disaster because Hayman Capital was the largest stockholder at the time. Bass also took Argentina’s side when the former president defaulted on their debt bonds. Four hedge funds were stuck when Argentina defaulted, and Bass said they were taking advantage of the people of Argentina. The other questionable issue that is plaguing Bass is his relationship with patent troll, Eric Spangenberg. Bass is betting against drug companies before the news breaks that they are being investigated based on information from Spangenberg.

Securus Steps Up

Over recent decades, many prisoners and their families have faced the hardships of the rising costs of making and getting calls in and out of prisons and other similar detention centers. Due to recent weather, some of the prisons in Louisiana have seen flooding which has also had a large impact on the community as a whole. Therefore, Securus Technologies has decided to step up and actually offer free phone calls for the prisons in the affected area for a limited time so that they will be able to communicate with their families. The news of the free calls was of great relief to all of those affected and they are very grateful.

 

In a recent article that was published online by PRN Newswire, Richard Smith, the Chief Financial Officer of Securus Technologies issued the following statement about offering the free phone calls to the prisoners: “Connecting inmates with family is a critical service that is core to what we do – and this is even more important in times of tragedy like the recent flooding in Louisiana. The flooding in Louisiana is so significant and severe that we need to take extraordinary measures to help make sure that communications are maintained so that we can help reduce anxiety and stress of inmates and their loved ones. The value of the calls that Securus will be connecting for free is approximately $300,000. In addition, Securus is making a cash contribution of $50,000 to the inmate welfare fund at Louisiana Department of Corrections in order to further assist inmates there.”

Adam Goldenberg: The Man Behind JustFab’s Outstanding Marketing

JustFab is a clothing retail brand that has become a rave for shoppers who love style at an affordable price on Huffington Post. You can find just about every line of outfits from work attire, fancy dresses for parties, or just laidback denim jeans and casual wear for hitting the mall with. JustFab also has sister branches in Fabletics for workout outfits, a men’s outlet, and even a children’s section at FabKids. But you would never guess who the brains behind this operation are. It is Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, two longtime friends who went from the Intermix Media social circles into the fashion industry.

Adam Goldenberg always loved computers, marketing, and gaming. While he was still in high school, he took those passions and used them to build a website called Gamer’s Alliance. The website connected gamers across an advertising network and Goldenberg started making some profits. The company that would start MySpace, Intermix Media liked what Adam had done and offered him a job as Vice President of Strategic Planning. Goldenberg accepted and in just 2 years, Goldenberg became Intermix Media’s COO without even having a college degree. It was while working for Intermix Media that he crossed paths with FitnessHeaven.com’s founder Don Ressler, a like-minded man who became Goldenberg’s friend and business partner.

News Corporation bought out Intermix Media in 2005 and changed the direction of the company, so Goldenberg and Ressler decided to move on. They tried a variety of sales options, until they decided they wanted to become fashion retailers. This was a tricky process as neither of them knew too many fashion terms, or even the difference between a Mary Jane and peep toe.

They were able to team up with some of the best minds in the fashion industry, including Kimora Lee Simmons who loved their idea and decided to come aboard as the creative director. What made JustFab a success was not only the affordability of the clothing line, but also the engaging social interaction Adam Goldenberg and Ressler brought to it. Kimora helped bring a horde of twitter followers to the brand when she made it officially hers and her fans loved it. Thanks to a partnership with venture capital provider Josh Hannah, JustFab has been able to grow its markets internationally at http://www.entrepreneur.wiki/Adam_Goldenberg.
