Igor Cornelsen is a well known figure in the investment industry for his views on how best to seek out a high quality investment in South America. The career of Igor Cornelsen has been spent seeking out different areas for investments to be made, and has seen him guide many investors to Brazil as the perfect location for seeing their money grow.

After completing a large amount of research into the Brazilian economy Igor Cornelsen has decided he feels one of the best options for enjoying a successful number of investments is to place funds in this South American country. Cornelsen has explained on a number of occasions that the Brazilian economy does not differ by a large amount from those of the majority of western countries; for example, the major banks of Brazil are largely owned by global economic institutions who operate throughout the world. A good example of the well known nature of Brazilian banks is shown in CitiBank Brazil, which is a part of the largest bank in the world.

Igor Cornelsen said on facebook he believes the future of the country of Brazil is looking brighter than ever before after a change in economic policy, and a large level of investment from China.

Madison Street Capital in the Frontline of Hedge Fund Management.

Forty two hedge fund deals were closed at Madison Street Capital in 2015 exceeding the thirty two transactions of the previous year. The transaction volumes recorded in 2015 were approximately 27% higher than those recorded in 2014 as measured by AUM. Driven by the wave of transactions in the fourth quarter of 2015, there are other main drivers creating momentum, making 2016 to be a record year in relation to hedge fund mergers and acquisition transactions.
The report indicates that despite the mediocre performance of most hedge fund strategies in 2015, hedge fund industry assets are an all time high. Due to the lagging performance of the hedge fund, institutional investors are making allocations to the alternative asset management sector with the aim of making higher returns in order to keep up with the rising liabilities. The struggle of small hedge fund managers to attract capital has led them to operating below optimal portfolio capacity levels. Generally, managers are incurring higher operational costs while still experiencing downward pressure on the fees. As a result, hedge fund managers for both large and small hedge funds are therefore considering strategic alternatives.

George Soros Warns Of Putin’s Plan For EU Destruction

George Soros has issued another dire warning to the European Union (EU). This time he is warning of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s plan for the destruction of the EU.
In an opinion piece posted to the Project Syndicate website the billionaire activist warns that Putin’s aim is to “foster the EU’s disintegration” by posing as an ally in the fight against ISIS.

Soros contends that this is merely a Trojan horse so that Putin can hasten the disintegration of the EU. His reasoning is as follows.

He believes that Putin has so mismanaged Russia that the country will go bankrupt in 2017. He sites the Western economic sanctions and the falling price of oil as two factors that will contribute to this.

Russia’s involvement is the war is Syria is a way for Putin to help force Syrian refugees to relocate to Europe and thereby quicken the EU’s demise. Soros argues that both the EU and Russia are on the verge of collapse. If the EU collapses first, he contends, then they will not be able to continue the sanctions against Russia. Thereby saving the Russian economy and keeping Putin in power.

The EU, led by Angela Merkel, is doing its best to stave off its own destruction. Soros points out that Merkel understood that the refugee crisis had the potential to weaken the EU and perhaps lead to its dismantling.

Soros astutely points out that the EU has been bouncing from one crisis to another lately, but now it faces “five or six” crises all at once and my not be able to solve all of them.

The terrorist attacks being carried out by ISIS in the West are are a threat but, according to Soros, they “do not compare with the treat emanating from Russia.”

George Soros has always had in interest int he plight of displaced people. As a teenager he fled Nazi-occupied Hungary, landing in London where he became on of the richest hedge fund managers in the world. He most famously known as the man who broke the Bank of England.

He currently runs the Open Society Foundation which seeks to protect human rights throughout the world. The Russian government has recently labeled the Foundation as an undesirable organization and prevented it from distributing grants to other organizations in the country.

Soros has been a major player in Democratic politics in America and recently donated $6 million to a super PAC that supports Hillary Clinton.

Why are premium dog food sales increasing

The trend towards higher quality dog foods is very noticeable in the marketplace with sales that have grown by 45% in the past five years and now encapsulate $10 billion of a market space of about $25 billion. This growth is clearly clearing the way in the space and many large dog food manufacturers like Beneful are releasing high quality foods to gain traction in this market. This article will provide some insight into why are premium dog food sales increasing and how manufacturers are adapting to reach those customers in the space.

Dog food owners are increasingly concerned with not only their own diets and the ill effects that our mass-produced food culture has on our health, but also on their health of our best friends, our dogs. It is this concern that is driving the trend towards premium dog foods. Beneful even came out with a website that allows pet owners to select the individual ingredients in their dog’s food and to, along with their vet’s advice, formulate a special diet for their dogs that will help them to be healthier.

Individuals also have more disposable income than in the past and are having children later in life which is also contributing to the trend towards mothering your dogs and spending more on them. Premium dog food makers are capitalizing on this trend and it is leading to additional sales in a growing market space.

Better science is also expanding on what foods are good for dogs and brands are able to scientifically design diets that are more healthy for pets and provide them with a more balanced diet than the traditional dog food options. Dog food makers are increasingly attempting to enter into and expand in the premium dog food space as a result and are increasingly releasing products to do so. Examples are Beneful’s new medium grade triglyceride fat product to appeal to owners with older dogs and other brands that are releasing premium dog foods that are designed to fit into a paleo diet. This is leading to a healthier dog food and of course pet.
