Brazil’s Infrastructure Programs Are Attracting Chinese Investors According To Financial Expert Filipe Montoro Jens

One of the first things Michel Temer did when he took over as president of Brazil was to contact the Chinese. China and Brazil have a close relationship. But that relationship hit a bump in the foreign relations road when the Chinese didn’t support Brazil as much as they could have during the Brazil’s monumental recession. Many of the infrastructure projects in Brazil didn’t materialize, and the quest to privatize several sectors of the economy didn’t happen either.

President Temer is a veteran politician, so the first thing he did was reach out to other countries and explain his plans to complete the 1,500 infrastructure projects that are hanging in limbo, thanks to the ouster of former President Dilma Rousseff. Temer also knows he has to privatize government-controlled businesses to attract foreign investors, and he is doing that, according to Brazilian financial and infrastructure expert Filipe Montoro Jens.

Filipe Montoro Jens is no stranger when it comes to solving infrastructure and financial issues. His professional track record is impressive by anyone’s standards. Jens is the Chief Executive Officer of Energizer Captacao S.A., and he is the Director of Santo Antonio Energia. He is the former Chairman of the Board of Concessionaria do Centro Administrativo do Distrito Federal. Mr. Jens was able to speak at the World Economic Forum because of his financial and economic background.

Mr. Jens has a BA degree from Fundao Getito Vargas (FGV), and a postgraduate degree in international management from the Thunderbird School of Economics. Jens is playing a pivotal role in attracting foreign investors to the technology, sanitation, infrastructure and energy sectors of the economy. Thanks to his speaking talents, Jens is able to explain complex issues in simple terms. He helps investors understand Brazil. The country is not like the old Brazil in terms of the government controlling vital economic producing industries.

Sheldon “Shelly” Lavin is the Chairman and CEO of OSI Group and is responsible for many of the business’ successes. Lavin began his career at the company more than 4 decades ago when the OSI Group was known primarily for its reputation as a supplier for McDonald’s burger patties.

Prior to joining the firm, Lavin’s skills were used to secure financing for OSI in the mid 1970’s when the business was looking to expand its operations supplying hamburgers to McDonald’s in the mid-west markets.

When he joined the organization, Lavin came from a background in banking, investing as well as an entrepreneur who created and ran his own consulting firm in the financial industry. During the 1980’s, Lavin drove OSI’s expansion into overseas markets including China, the Philippines, Japan, South Africa, Australia and India. This was the beginning of fulfilling his vision of growing the OSI Group into a world-class food-processing enterprise.

His efforts have received recognition world-wide. Recently, he was the recipient of the Global Visionary Award by India’s Vision World Academy and the Lifetime Achievement Award by RSM US, LLP.

Finance Firm Executive Reveals Investment Philosophy

In a recent discussion, James Dondero of Highland Capital Management talked about the finance industry and what he believes is necessary to succeed. During the discussion, Dondero talked about three things that he does in order to consistently get favorable results in the finance industry. When looking to experience success in the finance industry, James has often said that looking for turnaround investment opportunities is a great idea. This type of deal allows you to acquire a security that is below market value and then profit off of it once it goes up in value. Another strategy that James has used in order to succeed is to invest in credit and debt based securities. He also researches the financial markets on a regular basis in order to see what securities will make good investment options.

 

James Dondero is the co founder and President of Highland Capital Management. He has been in charge of this firm for over two decades and has built it into one of the very best investment firms in the industry. When he first co founded the firm in 1990, he made it as a life insurance company. During the first few years the firm was in business, it established itself into one of the most reputable firms in its industry. While the firm was very successful as a life insurance company, Dondero looked to enhance the firm by offering a wider range of financial services. James would have the firm offer things such as hedge funds, private equity securities. He would also organize his firm to provide wealth management, asset management and financial advising.

 

Before James started up his own financial services firm, he first got an education. He attended the University of Virginia where he completed degrees in both accounting and finance. Once he graduated from college, he started his career at an investment firm. When he worked at his first job he was a credit analyst. This experience allowed him to learn more about debt and credit backed securities. It would also provide him with the backbone of his financial services company. James would then become a chief investment officer where he would manage the financial assets for major corporations.

Patty and Scott Rocklage Complete Renovation Of Their House

Patty Rocklage and her husband Scott wanted to renovate their whole house. However, they were unaware that one could perform whole house renovation, so they were in the process of hiring multiple sub-contractors to accomplish various parts of the project. They then met the Sudbury Companies design team who specialize in whole house renovations. Ed Freelender who is an expert renovator showed them how they could make cost savings while still meeting their project’s objectives. After viewing samples in the Sudbury showroom they abandoned their sub-contractor plan and hired Sudbury to renovate their whole house.

Patty did not like how disconnected the kitchen area was from the other living spaces in the house. Mr. Freelender proposed they either renovate the existing kitchen, move the kitchen to another room or build a new kitchen entirely. Scott also wanted the front façade of the house to be accessible by guest because most guests to the house were unable to locate the front door. The Rocklages decided to fix the façade first as it was a more pressing issue.

Another thing that Patty was passionate about, was the landscaping of the house. She wanted the existing landscaping to recycle the rocks that would be affected by the renovation project. The landscaping project had to get permission from the Conservation Commission which insisted that the driveway be made from crushed stone to allow water to filter beneath the driveway. Patty also came up with the idea of recycling the trees in the compound for the landscaping project. The contractors had to relocate and replant 12 trees with three trees being used to make some outdoor furniture. The project also encountered numerous delays due to the weather. The trees could only be replanted during the fall to maximize chances of survival. In the end they had to push back the deadline of finishing the exterior landscaping by Christmas.

In the end Patty Rocklage and Scott were pleased with the completion of the project. The got a new farmer’s porch, a flipped front foyer and the front door was relocated. The exterior landscaping was quite impressive with a new driveway, stonewall and ecofriendly walkways. The Rocklages also refurbished their living area with a new TV, new tiles and a bar.

Josh recently appeared in the Knowledge for Men podcast where he gave advice and tips on how to be successful. He said that his favorite quote was from Jonathan Swift which describes vision as being the art of seeing what is invisible to others.

 

His first piece of advice is that one should try hard not to become a boss but a leader. The boss pushes people around, is self-centered, and demands respect from his employees. A leader earns respect from his employees and motivates everyone to work together. He advises leaders to put others first. This is what ultimately leads to a great team. He recommends that leaders push for a win-win environment for everyone in every situation. The outcome should be a win-win for clients, employees, and everyone in general. This means that the leader will learn to think outside the box and make the best decisions every time.

 

Josh Verne advises that people should find what they are passionate about for them to be successful. This means that they are productive and that they are happy to go to work every day. He advises that people should listen more and that they should try to find work-life balance. He finishes by sharing his favorite books known as “Made in America” by Sam Walton and Rocky.
