Christopher Linkas Advises the Young People to Learn Financial Management Skills

Owing to the low level of financial literacy, many young people end up making mistakes that dog them through their lives. Financial literacy is an important skill that the young people must seek if they are to have a chance in the investment world. It is a worrying trend that even though the young people are charged with managing finances both at personal and corporate level soon after completing their college; they are rarely taught how to do it prudently based on standard practices.

Student Loans

Another reason that greatly affects young people and hampers their ability to become financially independent is the choice to attend expensive schools. According to the financial analyst and investment adviser, young people and their parents are overly obsessed with attending expensive schools. The obsession leads to the young people committing to huge financial burdens that they carry to their career life. It is important to assess the value of the student loans extended by various bodies and only attend schools that one can afford to pay for or take a loan that falls within manageable amounts. Christopher Linkas says that if young people looked around, they would discover many options of schools that offer just as good an education as the one they would get in the expensive schools.

Brief on Mr. Christopher Linkas

Christopher Linkas plies his trade in the UK where he trained and has served for his entire career as an analyst in financial circles. He has collected a vast body of knowledge from the various companies he has worked for. He has a special place in his career about the financial well being of the youth who he says need to be educated on a range of financial skills. He laments that it is unfortunate that schools do not usually consider financial skills as a general and highly important area of one’s life. Christopher Linkas says that he has witnessed young people make terrible mistakes regarding their finances; mistakes that could be avoided if they were equipped with the right skills. He pointed out that the young people often create financial burdens even when they are still depending on their parents. He cites the issue of choice of schools, among others, as a primary cause of some of the financial quagmire that the young people grapple with.

Why Banco Bradesco Settled On Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi As The Chairman Of The Bank

Bradesco bank has dominated the Brazilian banking industry for close to eight decades. But the recent developments in the Brazilian banking sector have shifted the ball towards their competitors, thus losing their position as the largest private lender in the country. In 2009, two equally-dominant banks in Brazil formed a merger. The coming together of Banco Itau and Unibanco helped the duo to become the largest lender in Brazil by increasing their asset base, the number of branches and also customers.

It was business unusual for Bradesco bank as the board of directors was forced to make rapid changes in the management of the bank. Having worked and performed exceedingly well in Bradesco Seguros, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was seen as the only leader that would steer Bradesco through the turbulent economic times in a bid to regain the market leadership.

Why choose Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi?
Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi who began serving at the bank in 1969, had served in virtually all the departments in the bank before his appointment to become the president of the bank. He started off at the lowest rank in the bank where he served as a clerk. After four years, he was appointed to head the marketing department. Luiz initiated many programs in the marketing department that enabled Bradesco to attract more customers and investors.

For the last four decades, Luiz has passed through virtually every department at Bradesco bank according to estadao.com.br. For this reason, he understands the operations in the Bradesco bank that only a few other leaders can match. The board of directors decided to tap Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s immense experience in turning around the performance of departments in the institution.

While working for the Bradesco Seguros, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi exhibited outstanding leadership skills by enabling the division to maintain a steady grip of the Brazilian insurance industry from 2003. His success in leading Bradesco Seguros saw him being nominated the Insurance Personality of the Year twice; in 2003 and 2007.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s replacement
After taking over as the president of Banco Bradesco in 2009, Luiz Carlos Trabuco initiated many programs to enable the lender to regain its market leadership. He developed a plan that would enable Bradesco banks to grow organically in a period of fewer than ten years. Part of the plan included the acquisition of smaller banks, which mostly did not work out as expected.

However, in 2015, he landed a deal that saw Bradesco acquire HSBC bank for $5.2 billion. The acquisition enabled banco Bradesco bank to swing back to the leaders’ board by a stroke of a pen. So, when Luiz was tapped to replace former chairman, the board needed an individual with a charisma that matched that of Luiz. The person best suited to replace Luiz was Octavio de Lazari, who also served as the CEO of Bradesco Seguros.

Stream Energy

Stream Energy was recognized in the Dallas Patch for being one of the first companies to contribute to hurricane relief for Hurricane Harvey. Stream Energy’s charity foundation, Stream Cares, had partnered with Hope Supply Co to help alleviate homelessness caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Stream Energy is a privately-owned company that was established in Texas with services now spanning across seven states. The company provides energy, wireless, protective, and home services. Their business model is direct energy selling in which the corporation pays individual associates to build a network and deliver each product for a fixed rate. All products and services are offered for residential and corporate services. Associates who are successful with this business model work as autonomous entrepreneurs and business owners who also get to choose a cause to support through Stream Cares.

The company has redirected money profited by sales towards funding for relief. Stream Cares had recently been launched and its charity efforts have become part of their brand. Beyond monetary contributions, the employees are given the opportunity to volunteer themselves as well as partner with other foundations including Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity.

The Dallas Patch points out the win-win situation that these philanthropy efforts provide. While being able to give back to the community, companies are able to raise awareness and earn respect of current, new, and potential clients in the area. This growing trend is backed by the statistics, reporting in 2016 corporations provided $19 billion in funding to charities not including sponsorships, marketing, and individual employee contributions.

Through partnering with Hope Supply Co, Stream was able to cover entrance and meal costs for 1,000 children in North Texas at an event called Splash of Hope. Stream Energy has also aided to the Texas tornado that had touched down in 2016. The company had also paid all expenses and co-hosted the American Girl Doll Experience for 10 daughters of military families to help support and give relief Dallas-based families.

Stream Energy has made a positive impact in the Texas area where they serve, making philanthropy an essential part of their brand and value.


Shervin Pishevar’s Grim Outlook on US Economy

On February 6, 2018, Shervin Pishevar took to Twitter to express the deep concerns he has regarding the US economy. He made sent out 50 tweets that predicted some pretty dark days ahead for the stock market, big US companies, and even bitcoin.

Shervin Pishevar is well-known in the Silicon Valley area as a super angel investor. He was a strategic advisor to Uber and help co-found a venture capital fund that invested in Airbnb and Uber. In December 2017, he announced his resignation from that venture capital fund. That was the last time he used twitter. So his tweet storm came as a big surprise. Obviously, the axles in his mind continued to turn and were let out all at once.

On February 5, 2018, the day before Shervin Pishevar’s tweet storm, the US stock market experienced a dramatic drop. In fact, it is one of the most stomach-turning drops that has happened in recent memory. Shervin Pishevar is especially concerned about more slippage in the market, mentioning that he feels it will go down 6,000 aggregate points over the next year. He feels that with all of 2018’s gains forgone, 2017’s gains will be gone in a short matter of time as well.

Another point that Shervin Pishevar mentioned is that Silicon Valley is no longer what it used to be. It used to be a stronghold on ideas and talent. Now it is an idea that has gone viral. The movement of being an entrepreneur is now borderless. He even gave an example of individuals in China working together to build a train station in just nine hours. His basic point is that the American economy is not alone. And while this may be good for other countries, it is not good for short-term domestic growth in the United States. He feels that under this administration, no one should feel confident in any talk of the US economy growing.

The notions that Shervin Pishevar expressed on Twitter are ideas he has expressed in the past. With a more open society, there will be less volatility and not as many bottlenecks on innovation.
