SEC WHISTLEBLOWER HONORED WITH SECOND LARGEST AWARD

The PR news wire announced that the SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission) presented its second largest award to a whistle-blower represented by the Labaton Sucharow law firm. After collecting the penalty fees, the SEC gave the brave insider over 17 million dollars for the insider’s help in the investigation and conviction of the guilty parties. The whistle-blower provided pertinent information against a financial agent or agency that proved his/their culpability. Then the SEC determined violations were committed. SEC whistleblower Attorney Jordan A. Thomas took pride in the whistle-blower’s character and integrity and anticipates many more awards to be presented by the SEC. The SEC program protects the whistle-blower’s identity, reputation, and livelihood by not releasing the case name or the whistle-blower’s name. If the whistle-blower’s information results in sanctions, he or she will receive a sizable payment from 10 percent up to 30 percent of the sanctions levied against the financial agent or institution. The Labaton Sucharow law firm’s only mission is to represent and defend whistle-blowers. This law firm houses a team of experts that investigate, analyze, and compute information received by the client to prove the credibility of the client’s information.

Thanks to the Dodd-Frank act of 2010, whistle-blowers who participate in the SEC Whistleblower Program will be effectively protected from those agents or agencies who mishandle their relationships with investors. This program, supported by SEC approved whistle-blower lawyers, guards the confidentiality of the whistle-blower’s identity, shields the whistle-blower from a vengeful employer’s unfair practices, and compensates the whistle-blower with a cash reward.

This protection program acts as a transparent safe house for the whistle-blower. The new 21 F section of the Exchange Act establishes that any harmful act by the employer that would adversely affect the status or position of the whistle-blower’s employment is deemed illegal. In other words, the employer will break the law if the employer fires, places on unpaid leave, bumps to a lower paid position, or socially ostracizes the employee. Furthermore, the employer cannot exact retribution even if the employee participates in the investigation of the violations, testifies in court, or refuses to assist the employer in perpetrating more violations.

Madison Street Capital Experts Say Take Advantage of Emerging Market Growth

Developing countries are driving global growth and the economic potential of emerging markets is not fully being exploited, advises investment experts over at Madison Street Capital. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa are already strong global players, and they have excellent resources, and that potential is well used, but not by the countries themselves, but mainly by foreigners. http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapId=116516616

What Are Emerging Markets?

Emerging Markets designate a transitional stage between a developing country and a developed country. Coined in the 1970s in connection with the rising of Asian industrialization, emerging markets became known as a newly industrial rising country. Today, experts typically refer to countries like Brazil, India, China, Malaysia, Mexico and South Africa, to name a few, as an emerging nation. True, many of these countries are already partly industrialized, yet they are still in a phase in which they need more changes.

The Attraction Of Emerging Nations

All these countries have an excessive dependence on exports, and very clever foreign trade policies. For example, if you look at Brazil, they are in the worst economic crisis right now. Their unemployment rate is high and there is social unrest, yet Brazil’s raw materials are economically active. “There is also increasing debt in many industrialized countries, therefore fiscal flexibility and dependence on foreign financing are commonplace,” say Madison Street Capital advisers. Some of these financial markets offer high economic growth at often higher interest rates, which is an attractive package for investors. “The downside, of course is the risk involved, but that’s why investors diversify.”

Another attraction of emerging nations are precious metals. Precious metals like gold, silver and platinum as well as raw materials such as water, iron, zinc, oil and gas form a fundamental prerequisite for present day prosperity. Almost every industry depends on these materials. Metals can be found in automobiles, electric motors, buildings.

World Class Professionals

Chicago-based boutique investment firm, Madison Street Capital, provides strategic financial advice to create wealth and value for their clients. Mergers and acquisitions, management buyouts, and restructuring of debt, and other distressed advisory services are just a few of the financial advisements the firm offers to middle market businesses. Emanating from some of the top Wall Street and accounting firms, the team of experts have over a billion in transaction experience and a proven track record of exceptional outcomes.

Being a Proactive with One Online Reputation is The Only Way to Succeed

For many years companies looked at online reputation management as a reactionary issue, meaning companies were reacting to negative information put out online about the company. This could be in the form of a Yelp or Facebook review or a Tweet that goes viral. However in this day and age companies have now learned the importance of Online Reputation Management and are approaching it in a more proactive manner than in the past.

In today’s online environment one of the most powerful and effective tools a company has at its disposal is positive customer reviews. With sites like Yelp, Brand Yourself, Amazon and Angies list offering hundred if not thousands of review to current and potential customers it is imperative to have a positive presence on these sites. One of the ways to help ensure your reviews of adding to your overall online reputation is to actively monitor the reviews. You can set it up to be alerted when a new review goes up and if it is a negative one you can quickly respond to the customers concerns. Be mindful when responding to the concerns, as you do not want to be drawn into an online battle with the customer. A positive response acknowledging the customers dissatisfaction and offering an apology should be enough to make them feel their concerns were taken seriously.
In addition to monitoring reviews, businesses must also actively seek out reviews in order to continue to grow their online reputation. Often the reviews that are online are negative because satisfied customers just do not think about it. You will find that if you actively seek out reviews from satisfied customers that they are happy to oblige. You should have detailed instructions available to them so they do not find the process difficult.
Finally use those reviews to promote your business, people trust third parties when deciding to try a new brand or company. You can use these reviews in your marketing efforts to help potential customers feel more confident that you are a reputable company with the best product or service around.
Whatever type of business you are in is important to stay ahead of the online reputation management forefront because if you find yourself reacting to a negative reputation it might already be too late.

 

Comfort and Fashion Collide in Kate Hudson’s New Line of Dresses

Tired of fussing to get ready for a night on the town? Wishing you could ditch the Spanx and uncomfortable layers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your evening wear was as comfortable as your yoga clothes? Kate Hudson has your back.

According to a recent article at Marie Claire, Kate Hudson is expanding her current Fabletics of affordable active wear to include dresses! The dresses are designed to be comfortable, using the same soft fabrics found in yoga pants and leggings. Now going out on the town you can feel as comfortable and confident. And thanks to the price point of Fabletics wear you won’t be spending a fortune either.

When asked if the dresses would be appropriate for a date Kate responded at http://www.fabletics.co.uk/womens/topsellers/outfits, “That’s the point. It’s something that’s become more and more accessible, even in the office. Out on the town, to dinner, whether it be on a date, or with your friends it works with whatever you’re doing.” Not only are the new dresses made from comfortable fabric, some of the dresses even have built in bras. That’s one less thing to worry about while you are deciding what to wear.

Fabletics and Kate Hudson strive to create clothes that are functional for an active woman. They need to keep up with her when she’s working out as well as be comfortable. They applied the same principles to the new dresses. Many of them are no fuss. Just put it on, look great and go. The swimsuit line is no different. Beach volleyball? Yoga in the sand? Running on the beach? That is exactly the kind of woman Fabletics is catering too. Designed to stay in place and look great, the swimsuits round out the options available at Fabletics.

According to their own site, Fabletics was founded in 2013 by Don Ressler, Adam Goldenberg and Kate Hudson. Their goal was to provide high-quality performance clothing at an accessible price point. There were plenty of luxury brands suiting up triathletes and runners and dedicated yoga practitioners. But there was a lack of that same high quality for people who didn’t want to spend a fortune on their athletic gear.

Fabletics is primarily an online retailer with just 6 brick and mortar stores. New outfits are available each month. Instead of just letting you wade through the thousands of options on the site, new customers take a quiz. The quiz allows Fabletics to zero in on your individual tastes and recommend styles and choices you might like. A subscription service allows women the ability to build up a wardrobe that is comfy, functional and stylish.
