We are working on a PE Roll-up. We have a tech platform to consolidate operational tech products for Telecom Operations. Have acquisition targets in place; looking to setup a rollup fund to aggregate these, operationalize the acquisitions (shared services like common sales engine). We project higher valuations than traditional PE asset-sale due to operational efficiencies from tech platform and shared services

Is George Soros a hypocrite for converting hedge fund to family office?

Is George Soros a hypocrite for converting hedge fund to family office?

fiercefinance.com

The news that George Soros would return money to outside investors and keep his hedge fund alive only as a family office was greeted with massive headlines around the world. Sen. Richard Shelby took Read more…

====

No. He has been slowly giving money back for a while now and only had about $1B of outside investor money left. With the new SEC regulations, I would have chosen to give the money back to. Investor money made up about 4% of the total fund and it would have been ridiculus for him to have to jump through all of the hoops that are now required. Also, like Soros stated, the need for increased regulation is due to the systemic risk that many hedge funds pose to society. If his fund is a family office, I believe, the systemic risk is not there as long as his fund is not intertwined with the financial markets. Also I haven’t exactly ever heard of a family office collapsing and needing a bailout.

—-

The evidence list supporting the fact that Soros is nothing more than a cunning evil man is too long for this medium. Looking beyond his Nazi affiliations his claim to fame is becoming “the man who broke the bank of England” where he shorted the British pound with leveraged financial bets and severely devalued the homes and savings of all hard working British citizens overnight. In 1999 he almost collapsed the Russian economy in what was labeled “one of the greatest social robberies in human history,” by Rep. Jim Leach. He has performed the same currency collapse in Thailand and Malaysia, where Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula.” Soros has been fined for insider trading and “illegal market manipulation”. He has now had a hand in the same kind of currency collapse taking place in America. To accuse him of hypocrisy is like saying Hitler had a hot temper. Irrelevant.

—-

You must not know much about anything to think that someone has the power to control world currencies, other than they central banks themselves (and they do not even have complete control unless they are a government like China). I love it when people bash Soros, when there is a good chance that they haven’t given close to what Soros has given. He has donated billions to promote democracy and all you people can focus on is his ability to make speculative bets better than you could have ever dreamed to have made. Let me guess, are you a fan a Glenn Beck? It is funny that you even bring up his “Nazi affiliations”. He was 10-12 years old. What were you doing when you were that age? Lastly, he has no hand in the currency collapse of America. Do you honestly think that his fund, which has approximately 25 Billion in capital, could cause the USD to collapse? I see that you are a “reformed investment banker”, but I am guessing that the workload was too hard and you couldn’t handle it. But hey, go ahead and call yourself a “visionary entrepreneur” because they are only going to be visions until you actually do something.

—-

you are clearly unsuited for proper intellectual debate given your need to comment on me personally. Since you’ve proved incapable of debating the truth about Soros’ influence in financial markets I will just say the following and just hope more blind people like you wake up.

I left banking because the work was not rewarding (besides the cash) and truthfully, it wasn’t challenging to me. I was at CS for 5 years and, for the most part, was bored. I passed the CFA first attempt after hardly reading the books (and was the only person on my entire floor at Credit Suisse to pass by the way). Your assumptions prove that the extent of your ignorance. I don’t watch Glenn Beck, I am neither Republican or Democrat…I am not fooled into choosing between false options.

Careful making assumptions on what other people know as you try to “break into the industry”. Don’t be lame and attack people personally on LinkedIn. Go play on Facebook for that. Again – you clearly have much to learn.

—-

NO, Soros is just an anti-semitic, self-hating former Jew who profits from revolutions and financial destruction created by Soros and his network of groups that he supports!

—-

The only media figure that I have heard make comments about Soros’s “Nazi affiliations” is Glenn Beck (and possibly Rush Limbaugh). And the reason for the “attack” was your use of “Nazi” and “Hitler” in reference to Soros, when, in fact, those are simply complete falsehoods. I have studied Soros quite a bit and would love to have a debate about the many misconceptions that people have about his life (and I can do it with civility as long as it is coming from both sides). So, do you honestly think that one man can control world currencies?

Australia’s Venture Capital Providers

Australia’s Venture Capital Providers

Australia has a fast emerging venture capital industry. It was only a small industry a decade ago, but it has evolved into a significant industry over the past few years that capital seekers should no longer consider. The mining boom in Australia has also created new wealth in some Australian societies, as well as the property boom. The venture capital industry has grown into 3 cities: Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

The industries that Australian venture capital firms are specialised in:

1. Mining related projects, this includes mining, energy and also mining-related services (such as engineering firms, drilling companies) and technologies.
2. Renewable energy projects – there are some successful Australian technologies especially solar energy and coal related energy projects 3. Biotechnology – Australia has been successful in developing some of the world-class biopharma companies, good examples are CSL, Cochlear and ResMed, many Australian biotech companies have been initially funded by its local venture capital firms 4. Internet – The investors are also very active in investing in Internet and digital media companies. Digital advertising agency, productions and social media are some of the most active investments 5. Traditional Businesses – Australian venture capital firms are also quite active in investing in traditional businesses, this involves in family transition / succession opportunities, franchises or retail industries.

There are some interesting facts about Australian Venture Capital investors:

1. They like to help companies to grow into international markets, as you need to become a global company in order to grow your revenue significantly 2. They are now investing into international opportunities – quite a few Australian VCs have opened their office in US, Asia and Europe (UK is where the HQs are most of times) 3. They are flexible in terms of exit strategies – there have been quite a few Australian companies deciding to take IPO abroad, this is particularly the case if they are in the technology, biotechnology or renewable energy industries 4. Australian venture capital funds also work with Australia’s superannuation funds, one of the largest industry (in terms of funds under management) in the world. A good example has been their investments in infrastructure sector, where superannuation funds have also participated actively.

So far this year the GAIM International 2011 has been my favorite conference because the event incorporated so many investors, large hedge fund managers, and industry leaders. I can’t imagine how much coordination that must take to pull off.

What has your favorite conference been over the past few years?
—–
Typically it takes money to attend to put it bluntly, $500-$5,000 is the range which you will find most conferences priced at. There are probably 30-50 medium to large sized hedge fund conferences every year and then 100+ additional smaller seminars and networking events.

You can register here if you want to be notified when I’m speaking at an upcoming hedge fund conference or event, I can often provide a discount to members here within the Hedge Fund Group: http://richard-wilson.blogspot.com/2008/08/hedge-fund-conference.html

Are you affiliated with a fund administration firm? Is that what RND does?
