  • Wake Up Europe - An Essay From George Soros

    Europe is facing a challenge from Russia to its very existence. Neither the European leaders nor their citizens are fully aware of this challenge or know how best to deal with it. I attribute this mainly to the fact that the European Union in general and the eurozone in particular lost their way after the financial crisis of 2008.


    The fiscal rules that currently prevail in Europe have aroused a lot of popular resentment. Anti-Europe parties captured nearly 30 percent of the seats in the latest elections for the European Parliament but they had no realistic alternative to the EU to point to until recently. Now Russia is presenting an alternative that poses a fundamental challenge to the values and principles on which the European Union was originally founded. It is based on the use of force that manifests itself in repression at home and aggression abroad, as opposed to the rule of law. What is shocking is that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has proved to be in some ways superior to the European Union — more flexible and constantly springing surprises. That has given it a tactical advantage, at least in the near term.

  • 5 Geopolitical Risks to Watch

    The world is on fire. It would seem that every inhabited continent sans Australia is facing some degree of crisis, whether it be armed insurgency, foreign invasion, civil unrest or the death of a promising politician.


    Yet from the stock market’s recent moves, you could be forgiven for believing that all was well in the world. The S&P 500 is hovering near new all-time highs, and after a brief pause in July and early August, the bull market remains very much intact. The selloffs have been slightly more severe in some foreign markets, but overall stock investors are surprisingly complacent given the state of world affairs.

  • Against the Tide: Why Some Family Offices are Deciding to Become Hedge Funds

    In the past, hedge funds provided investors with a way to invest large amounts of money without much government regulation. In the past few years, government scrutiny into hedge funds has increased enormously. As a result, some of America’s largest hedge funds have opted to shrink away from the powers that be by becoming “family offices.” But, even in the face of increased federal oversight, there are some entities that are doing just the opposite. Indeed, some family offices are bucking the trend by becoming hedge funds that can seek out new clientele and invest with a wide range of investor capital.

    The more common move to shift from hedge fund to closed family office was popularized by large hedge funds and hedge fund managers like George Soros (Trades, Portfolio), Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio), and Steve Cohen’s SAC Capital Advisors (now Point72 Asset Management). Some estimates suggest that there are over 1,000 different family offices throughout the nation. The Dodd-Frank Act went into full effect in 2010, causing many hedge fund managers to rethink their positions.

  • George Soros Wants to Make a Lot of Money in European Banks

    In this article let's take a look at George Soros (Trades, Portfolio), who is recognized for having the best performance record of any investment fund in the world over its 26-year history. Since 1969, when Soros established the Quantum Fund, he achieved a cumulative 32% annual return.


    Soros has decided to raise the bet on Spain, to gain 0.5% Liberbank S.A. (LBK.MC) in an operation valued at 5 million euros. Liberbank, which took rescue funds during Spain's financial crisis, in June completed a 475 million euro ($645 million) capital hike, so it can repay debt and bolster its finances. "There were about 20 anglo-saxon funds who bought into (the operation), and Soros was among those," a spokesman of the company said, adding that the U.S. investor's holding represented between 0.5 percent and 1 percent of Liberbank's capital. Spain received 41,300 million euros in 2012 from its European partners to assist weaker financial sector entities, including Liberbank, who needed 124 million euros in the form of convertible bonds into equity.

  • George Soros Chooses Refining for Profits

    U.S. economic activity continues on the uptrend, making oil and gas supplies all the more important and crucial. With rising political instability in North Africa and Middle East, changing legislation in the North Sea, North America appears as one of the safest regions for the exploration and production of fossil fuels. Supported by a boom in the gas industry, supported by new techniques for the extraction of unconventional reserves, in addition to new safety rules and technology for deepwater production, shale exploitation and unreachable reserves have turned productive.


    The advances have been possible only thanks to the high price at which crude oil and gas currently sales. Companies not only had enough cash to invest on new equipment, and take on expensive development projects, but also saw profits rise dramatically. All that production, however, before reaching the consumer had to be refined. At that point, Western Refining (WNR) began to absorb market synergies pushing forward with an impressive performance.

      


  • Will Manulife Recover from Its Rough Patch and Yield Profits?

    Manulife Financial Corporation (MFC) is the largest Canadian life insurer by market capitalization, offering asset management, wealth management and financial services to customers in Asia, Canada and the U.S. However, the company’s annuity and segregated fund business has suffered over the past two years, due to the low interest rate environment, leading to a decline in earnings and operating results. Nonetheless, the firm has been undergoing some changes throughout 2013 and management expects profitability to increase for fiscal 2014, despite its underperformance during fourth quarter fiscal 2013. Thus, many investment gurus like George Soros (Trades, Portfolio) and Jim Simons' (Trades, Portfolio) hedge fund remain bullish about Manulife’s future outlook, evidenced by their shares purchased in the past quarter.
