George Soros is Taking a Personalized Approach to his Investment Strategies

George Soros is a mythical figure in today’s world. He is one of the few people in the world that is literally able to make billions of dollars through the process of investing. Soros has spent the vast majority of his life in the financial world and he has a lot to show for it.

Currently. Soros is one the top 50 richest people in the world. He ranks about number 30 on this list. His wealth is so immense that he could literally purchase and operate his own country if he wanted to. Thankfully, Soros is more concerned about how people are living today. This native Hungarian, Jewish billionaire now lives within the United States and he is heavily involved in politics.

George Soros has an investment company called the Soros Fund Management LLC. This firm is considered one of the best in the world in terms of profits. For many years Soros has led his organization. However, he had turned the management of the company over to a trusted chief investment officer while he handled other matters.

Mr. Soros is heavily involved within politics. While he is not a politician by trade, Soros stays close to politics because this is how he makes his money. When a country’s economy is in turmoil, Soros finds a way to profit from this situation. Soros does not harm an economy when he profits, he just sees an opportunity that presents itself for financial gain. He did this back in 1992 when the British pound had lost its value. He made billions of dollars from a short sale of this devalued currency.

George Soros Trading Again

Billionaire Investor George Soros Sees Economic Trouble Ahead

Soros is not out to get rich out to get rich off of a nation’s misfortune. That would be counterproductive to his investment strategy and bottom line. In order for billionaires like Soros to stay financially healthy they need national economies to stay strong and vibrant.

Currently, Soros is seeing a lot of economic problems in China and the European Union. China has the world’s second largest economy but it’s starting to decline. The refugee crisis in Europe is threatening to end the European Union. Soros realizes that if China or the European Union fails, it will bring about a huge financial upheaval all across the globe. He does not necessarily want to profit from this but he will if people do not pay attention to his insight on the matter.

Keep in mind that Soros has been busy on the lecture trail for years warning people about these two impeding disasters. If China or the EU does not change course, then things will go wrong for these two political states. Soros does not want to see that happen. He knows that a lot of people’s lives would seriously be impacted by these changes. Once again, billionaires of Soros’s magnitude must have strong national economies in order to thrive.

Soros has returned back to his firm to lead investments because he wants to get back to his roots. He wants to ensure that his investments are being guided as he sees fit and he wants to ensure success not just for himself but for other people as well. The Wall Street Journal has more information about Soros’s going back to his company to personally guide his investment opportunities.

George Soros Continues to Defend the Ukraine

Billionaire investor George Soros continues to voice his support for his birth country long after the conflict between the Ukraine and Russia has disappeared from the world’s headlines.

Back in February of 2014, George Soros Ukraine posted an article on the Project Syndicate.org website that outlined the violence perpetrated on the Ukraine by Russia.

He described the uprising by Ukrainian citizens armed with only sticks, cardboard shields and garbage-can lids that pushed back police firing live rounds of ammunition.

Even though the civilian patriots suffered numerous casualties, they prevailed in an historic moment destined to leave a lasting impression on Ukraine’s historical memory.
 George Soros explained how that unlikely victory could happen by using a theorem from quantum mechanics. He said that humans behave both as individual particles and as components of a larger wave.

When the civilian army launched a suicidal attack on armed police forces in Kyiv on February 20, they were representing their nation, not their individual selves. This feeling of national pride far outweighed their own concerns with their own mortality. In the end, their efforts brought a deeply divided society away from a possible civil war to join together in a singular sense of unity.

Soros wouldn’t predict how long that sense of unity will last. The way Europe responds to the unwarranted intrusion on the Ukraine will be significant in determining its future. To this point, Soros feels that the European Union has been outmaneuvered by Russia.

George Soros – Business Leader, Philanthropist

Ukraine & Europe: What Should Be Done?

In another Project Syndicate article published on May 28, 2014, Soros analyzed both the European Parliament election and the presidential election in Ukraine. Both produced contrasting results. Europe’s voters expressed their dismay the way the EU currently functions. The Ukrainian people, however, demonstrated a favorable view of the EU and expressed a desire to become associated with the union of countries.

Soros expressed hope in the article that the European leaders and citizens would consider what that vote means and how helping the Ukraine can also benefit Europe.

Unfortunately, the euro economic crisis has turned the EU into something radically different than its original purpose to unite all freedom-loving European countries. Creditor and debtor relationships between the various EU partners have turned into infighting that threatens the very future of the EU itself.

This distraction has left the Ukraine struggling on its own and trying to build support from countries outside the EU.

Meanwhile, Russia continues to gain strength as a dangerous economic and military rival to the EU. Under Russian leader Vladimir Putin, they are expressing global geopolitical ambitions and expansion with no fear of using military force if need be. By exploiting ethnic nationalism, Putin is bolstering his power at home.

The annexation of Crimea has made Putin a popular leader in Russia. Even more telling, he is attempting to weaken the perception that the United States has global domination by seeking a closer alliance with China. To the dismay of the EU and America, this plan has been received favorably by most of the rest of the world.

Highland Capital Management Planning to Lead in the Acquisition of Argentina Bonds

Argentina will have a ready market once it returns to the global bond markets to generate approximately $12 billion since top purchases like Highland Capital Management are already warming up. The Dallas-based asset management company that has $19 billion under its management is looking forward to buy an extraordinary amount of bonds. Highland Capital happened to hold the biggest share of Argentina’s notes valued at $4 billion before it paired its holdings a couple of months ago.

The plan of Highland Capital to invest in Argentina bond is an advantageous sign for the nation, which is planning to sell an exceptional amount of bonds to clear debts with Billionaire Paul Singer’s group of creditors. Additionally, even the distressed debt investors are likely to purchase the bonds.

Argentina will issue securities valued at $11.68 billion, which are expected profit by 7.5 to 8 percent. The three bonds will have a maturity ranging from five, ten, to thirty years. After assuming Argentina’s Presidency, Mauricio Macri has played an integral role in the regaining of international market access. Additionally, Macri has overseen the implementation of new policies to counter those of former President Fernandez de Kirchner.

Analysts at Bank of America Corp such as Sebastian Rondeau and Jane Brauer have predicted that distressed investors will participate in the purchase of Argentina’s bonds even after the transaction is complete. In fact, some investors have started establishing Argentina oriented funds to invest in private equity, capital markets, and debts.

Success And The Firm To Do It

Solo Capital Partners operates business in the areas of professional sports investments, proprietary trading and consulting.

The international firm offers world class financial services directly from its headquarters of London, England. The group was incorporated as Solo Capital UK and Solo Capital Limited in the month of September during the year of 2011.

It’s currently regulated in the United Kingdom with assets of £67.45 million, a total worth of £15.45 million and a steady flow of cash reaching roughly £30.26 million as of the year 2015. The parent company of Solo Capital Partners is Solo Group Holdings.

The firm was founded by none other than Sanjay Shah.

Sanjay Shah is also the owner of Solo Group Holdings’ parent company, Aesa S.a.r.l. He is CEO of the same. This businessman and famed investor owns over 35 standing organizations within Dubai, Luxembourg, The British Virgin Islands, The Cayman Islands, London and Malta. His empire is vast.

The firm owned by this mogul helped him earn roughly £19 million in 2011 before incorporating Solo Capital to the name we know of today. And the list of profitable trades and transactions doesn’t end there for Mr. Shah. In the year 2014, he took possession of the invitation only and institutional stock broker, Old Park Lane Capital.

This firm only deals with and trades natural resources.

Sanjay’s work throughout these years has brought him to a total net value of roughly $280 million though he now considers himself a retired financier. His offices are in Dubai and London respectfully. Though he finds himself on the top of a financial empire, Shah did not begin in finance or investment.

His intentions to become a professional in the medical field never blossomed, and so he pursued the financial industry until forming his own brokerage firm in 2009. His past credentials, with the likes of Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and the famed Morgan Stanley, paved his way into a bright future.

A future that we recognize in the present today.
