Healthcare Investors Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Wiesbrod to Form Partnership

Recent news indicates that healthcare investors Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod will be sharing an office with a collaboration in the near future. The two know each other well as they have worked together in the past. The article by the Daily Forex Report gives details into the two and the newly formed alliance. Weisbrod co-founded a company named Merlin in 1998, an investment company that focuses on healthcare. Weisbrod has had prior experience with other well-known companies and has multiple degrees in different majors as he was an excellent student.

He has a PhD in Biochemistry from Princeton University, an MBA in finance from Columbia University, and a BA in Chemistry from Colgate University. As he obtained a great education, he used it to build a good team around him and one of them includes Jacob Gottlieb, who worked for him previously in the year 2000 as a portfolio manager. Gottlieb had his own successful pursuits in landing big-time clients, but despite all of the success, Merlins closed its doors. Weisbrod though opened a new healthcare investment company named Iguana Healthcare Partners, and the name symbolizes the reptile Iguana, which thrives in changing environments that can blend in.

Jacob Gottlieb took the same route and created his own brand called Visium Asset Management. Gottlieb then grew Visium to an eight billion hedge fund. However, Visium then came to an end in 2016, but scandals let to its closure with accusations of insider trading and mismarking. Evidence brought forward by an employee of the company brought about its downturn. The investigation is still ongoing. Visium agreed to shell out ten million dollars in fines and Gottlieb with the role of CEO has continued to return money to investors. Gottlieb has been cleared of any charges and was not involved in the scandals. Even with Visium, Gottlieb has another company called Altium Capital, in the pharmaceutical business that can change the industry. Now with Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod in the same office, there is a lot of excitement from what could come out of the partnership.

Life of Dr. Sameer Jejurikar

Dr. Sameer Jejurikar is a board-certified plastic surgeon, focusing on cosmetic surgery of the nose, eyes, face, body, and breast.

Along with being a surgeon, Dr. Jerjurikar, along with other doctors, is ensuring safety in Brazilian butt lift procedures. The organization in ensuring this safety is known as the Multicity Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force. This task force combines knowledge from all doctors involved to find the safest and most appropriate access incisions for fat injections. Brazilian butt lifts can be dangerous because the procedure involves augmentation through grafting, meaning that fat is moved from one location to another. When this procedure is done, it can cause fat embolisms, which includes fat tissue getting caught in the blood vessels.

Eric Lefkofsky’s Educational Work

Education is key to socioeconomic mobility in a modern world where intelligence has never been in higher demand. High IQ individuals just 500 years ago were merely pushing plows to grow food in order to stay alive. Today, intelligence drives the economy. Tech companies are booming and overflowing with highly educated employees. Simply put — you will economically struggle without an education.

Eric Lefkofsky, the current CEO of Groupon, knows this all too well. As the founder of five companies, he has a unique perspective on the educational demands of today’s workforce. The philanthropist has partnered with his wife to create the Lefkofsky Foundation which funds many charitable organizations focused on education.

The charitable trust that runs the Lefkofsky Foundation was set up back in 2006. It was set up after Eric was able to make a lot of money in the business world. But he said it wasn’t always easy. In the beginning, he worried about keeping the lights on and putting food on the table. Now he has so much money that he’s focused on improving the quality of life for others.

The foundation helps to fund charitable organizations around the world that focus on health, education and human rights. The education side of the charitable organization focuses on the middle grades. The Lefkofsky family believes that this impressionable time is an incredibly important chapter in a person’s life. That’s why they have helped to fund High School Bound.

High School Bound reaches out to the Chicago area. It allows prospective students to research all of the Chicago-area Public Schools in order to make an informed decision about attending. All of the information about the schools is consolidated onto one website to make research easier for students in the area. The information is made accessible, comprehensive yet concise, accurate and easy to understand. This helps families in one of America’s largest cities.

Socioeconomic barriers often prohibit intelligent children from matriculating through school. This keeps some of our most intelligent citizens from rising to the top. Charitable organizations such as High School Bound help to eliminate these barriers in order to create a more intelligent workforce.

Shervin Pishevar Tells People The Stock Market Is Not As Stable As They Believe

Try to convince someone that something they believe is true is really not. It is not an easy sell to most people. You can fight and fight with them to try to get them to see things from your prospective, but you will most likely just be howling into the wind. That doesn’t stop Shervin Pishevar from giving it a try though.

Shervin Pishevar recently went on Twitter and in a fit of explaining things went on a fifty tweet rant about the economy and how things are shaping up around it. He tried to explain to people that he does not believe that the stock market deserves to be priced as high as it is right now. He also tried to point them to the idea that Bitcoin is something that they should dump for the time being as well.

The reason some people care what Shervin Pishevar has to say about these things is because he has such a solid record of predictions in the past. He personally made himself wealthy by being an early investor in Uber. He knew that if he put money on the line with Uber that he was taking something of a risk, but he also believed that doing so would pay off for him in the long run. Therefore, he made that investment and ended up doing well with it.

Twitter is now filled with the thoughts of Shervin Pishevar as he frequently tries to tell people what he thinks about what is happening in the world. Some people love what he has to say while others are less appreciative. As long as he is right in the end, Shervin Pishevar doesn’t much care what individual Twitter followers think of his opinions. He just wants them to take it from him that he put out his opinions ahead of time and we can all sit back and wait to see what happens with them. He has taken the gamble in a sense by putting his reputation on the line every time he makes one of these economic predictions. It is literally that important when he tweets.

Graeme Holm’s Infinity Group Puts Client’s First

Infinity Group’s client-first mentality has a family-esque fell about it. This is because to Graeme Holm, founder and director of Infinity Group, clients are family. Graeme is a talent financial broker with a passion for alleviating families from the strain of debt. Graeme is a Top 100 MPA broker, with a stellar resume that includes a seventeen year stretch in the finance market. Ten of those years fall under the Big Four heading, which is where is observed the debt problem many Australian families are inflicted with. The main reason is because of a severe lack of guidance and support. These families were faltering and no one was really going out of their way to help them. This is why Holm founded Infinity Group, and why Infinity Group is the fastest growing financial management firm in Australia.

 

Infinity Group’s services are customer-centric. They focus entirely on the customers and offer unending support to not only reduce debt, but rebuild finances as well. The experts at Infinity group offer a hands-on approach to money management. They sit down with clients and tirelessly examine their financial status. They look over everything with a fine-toothed comb and pinpoint where problem areas are. Any financial plan constructed by Infinity Group is tailor-made to their clients. Following Holm’s mission statement the company does not just offer advice, they also implement the plan as well. Their strategy is akin to a personal trainer, they push their clients to achieve their goals. The constant updates, check-ins, incentives, bonuses, and reviews walk clients through every step of the process. This is why clients who come to Infinity Group are able to pay back an average of $41,000 dollars in the course of twelve months.

 

Graeme Holm is also a huge believer in the value of cash. Knowing well the problems credit can generate the first step in Infinity Groups process is switching clients over to cash. They are allotted a certain amount of physical currency that they use to pay expenses. Anything they cannot afford using cash they cannot purchase. This builds healthy credit, keeps clients from amassing more debts, and allows quicker turnaround on debt reduction. But Infinity Group goes even further for their family of clients. They also stay with them past the debt payoff. They assign them a personal banker and work with them to build up their wealth. It is a complete package that not only puts customers back on their feet but allows them to run.
