With EFH, a business can truly get a hold of some fast cash without struggling to attain approval.

 

 Equities First Holdings specialize in stock-based loans. With this type of loan, the restrictions are minimal, so the money can be used for multiple different reasons. With a stock-based loan, a borrower can expect to pay an extremely reduced fixed interest rate of four percent or lower. All loans carry some type of risk, however, some borrowers can walk away from a transaction without any obligation

 

A business’s stock can be used as collateral, giving the business owner the option of receiving a loan to spend on practically anything. Sadly, with a margin loan, the client has to go through specific stages that can determine if they qualify or not. Margin loans are very difficult to obtain and may even require the money to be used for a single purpose. Equities First Holdings is different. This organization abides by a mission to deliver the maximum benefits to their clients with the least amount of risk so all of their customers can meet their financial and personal goals. They are built to the code of integrity and rely on trading institutions for guidance.

George Soros exposes that the current economic situation resembles the 2008 crisis

Published Post author

George Soros, founder of Soros Fund Management and Open Society Foundation, applies his vast experience in the market to remark that the current economic environment may have a resemblance to the 2008 catastrophe and suggests investors to be alert.

Soros stated in an economic forum in Sri Lanka in January that China’s economy and its lack of adjustment may affect investment and manufacturing and may shift towards consumption and services. The currency devaluation on http://www.biography.com/people/george-soros-20926527 will affect the whole world and can lead to a crisis that will affect the financial market similar to the one in 2008. The economy of China remains unstable, even with the action by People’s Bank of China to cut interest rates and introduce millions into the economy.

George Soros was born in Budapest in 1930, and fled to London during the World War II Nazi occupation where he graduated from the London School of Economics. He later migrated to the United States and since then has acquired a large fortune from international investment fund. He is an active philanthropist and states that the world is imperfect, and what is imperfect can be improved; following this thought, George Soros founded the Open Society Foundation in 1979 which focuses on giving support on democracy and human rights in over 100 countries. This foundation focuses on worldwide programs to build tolerant societies with the help of governments and its citizens. George Soros is also a renowned writer, publishing several books and contributing with an economic point of view in prominent newspapers and magazines. His knowledge and success in the financial and investment fields has made his recommendations and insights widely followed.

Soros predicted in 2011 another catastrophe alike to the one in 2008 with the European crisis on http://www.investopedia.com/university/greatest/georgesoros.asp, stating that this crisis was more serious than the one that took place 16 years ago. Europe is facing several crises at a time; the euro devaluation, the crisis in Greece, British and its decision to remain part of the EU and also Russia’s confrontation against Ukraine. George Soros states in his article that the external threat of Russia against Ukraine should be the first one to attend and be treated as a “defense expendure”, since it might bring unification within the European Union.

Soros foresees that the actual global market echoes the one in 2008 this can lead to a change of action in investors around the world. Visit Open Society Foundations website to know more about George Soros.

George Soros Sees Signs Of A Global Economic Meltdown On The Horizon

Published Post author

 

George Soros likes to talk about the need for open societies, open borders, human rights, and investment tactics. Soros is a holocaust survivor, and he is also one of the wealthiest people in the world. Soros made all his money investing in assets that other investors didn’t want. When he bet against the British pound in 1981, most investors thought he was crazy, but when he made $1 billion on that transaction, people began to see the insight that Soros has. Soros does speak unless he has the facts to substantiate what he says. Lately, Soros has been spending time telling the world that a recession is on the horizon and it’s time to recognize it.

But it’s hard to convince some people that the world is going to go through another 2008 meltdown when there are so many stop-gaps in place to prevent it. That’s where Soros disagrees. The signs are obvious to George Soros. They may be independent dots on the world economic map at the moment, but they will soon be connected to each other, and that’s when the all the bull-crap will hit the fan. The main dot on the economic map is China, but European Union’s dot is growing every day.

Investors and governments around the world know about China’s economic woes. The Chinese are having a difficult time converting their sagging manufacturing-based economy into a consumer oriented economy. The Chinese have used billions of dollars of their capital reserves to reinforce the value of their currency, and they invested billions more in keeping their stock market solvent. Those figures don’t count their massive investment in infrastructure that is creating the lowest capital reserve fund in the country’s recent history. Asian countries are feeling the impact of China’s financial missteps. and Soros says that’s only the beginning.

But the leaders of the EU can’t seem to agree on any type of solution for their euro debt, their economic slowdown and the migration crisis that has destroyed the essence of the EU. When China’s issues are combined with the European Union’s slow growth, and oil’s fall from power and the internal battles it is causing, the prognosis for the world’s economic health isn’t good.

Mr. Soros believes the United States is on the way to another recession even though the dollar is strong. Soros believes investors are keeping the dollar strong because it is one of the only currencies that investors believe in. But even the strong dollar won’t be enough to derail the pending global recession.
