Bradesco: The Luiz Carlos Trabuco Brand

     All banking executives know the rigors associated with this industry necessitating the possession of special attributes, skills, and competencies. As such, banks have a stronghold on the economic, social, and political life of any country. Given that, it is important having capable executives at the helm of any banking institution.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco cappi is one of such banking executives. Since he took over the management of Bradesco from Marcio Cypriano, he has maintained close and effective control over its entire operations. As the fourth president of Bradesco, since its founding 65 years ago, Luiz Carlos grew Bradesco’s value from $5 million to $30 million.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco cappi made Bradesco his passion since joining its workforce as a teller. Over a career spanning four decades, he steadily rose through its ranks until he became the institution’s president. Among these ranks are marketing, insurance, and pension departments. Prior to his appointment as its president, Trabuco was the head of Bradesco Seguros insurance subsidiary. In this post, he increases the subsidiary’s market share to 25% from 23%. To top that, Trabuco spearheaded a campaign that increased Bradesco’s insurance department subscriber base to 35% from 26%.

As one of the highly paid finance executives in the country, his remuneration package totals $1 million per month. Even so, he is a modest man known for his modest suits and no outward show of material affluence. Instead, Luiz Carlos Trabuco cappi uses his energies to run the affairs of the group using an “organic growth” strategy. With this strategy, he favors improving the bank’s internal processes and its presence within the country. As a result, Bradesco now has over 211 branches across the country geared towards onboarding Brazil’s unbanked population.

In a speech at the recent World Economic Forum for Latin America, Luiz Carlos Trabuco urged governments to tackle runaway deficits. In his comments, failure to curb government spending affects the ability of an economy to sustain a state’s machinery. Moreover, Trabuco believes that government needs to streamline the pension system as a matter of social justice.

Because of his excellent leadership, management, and achievements at Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco cappi has received many invites to work with other companies as well as from the Brazilian government. However, his dedication to Bradesco makes him rebuffing these offers politely.

Jed McCaleb: Working to Bring Cryptocurrency into the Mainstream Banking Industry

Jed McCaleb has spent the majority of his professional life in the pursuit of normalizing cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. He has a vision of cryptocurrency becoming as commonplace as any other traditional currency on the global economic stage of today, and the future technological advances in the blockchain will eventually expand to all areas of commerce worldwide.


In June 2014 Jed McCaleb co-founded a nonprofit organization named McCaleb has a vision that understands the most efficient (and cost-effective) way to conduct financial transactions between people is to streamline the effort it takes to accomplish these goals. This is especially the case in the war on poverty and hunger around the world, where funding is needed in a variety of different currencies.


These types of transactions often involve large sums of money that cross international borders, and this usually results in enormous amounts of red tape. People who are waiting for aid suffer needlessly due to delays in traditional monetary transactional procedures.


This needless suffering is unacceptable to people like Jed McCaleb.


Jed McCaleb and the team at Stellar are working to get money where it needs to be, as efficiently as possible. McCaleb has developed a network that enables a number of large corporations which are currently using this platform to exchange traditionally recognized international currency and banking systems across international borders.


McCaleb believes that the digitization of currency still has a long way to go, and expansion into newer types of cryptocurrency is underway. An example of this new type of platform would be token sales (or crypto coins) are an example of cryptocurrency that is an untapped market in the global financial arena. This is just one example of what the future holds for the digital economic possibilities that lie ahead.


Jed McCaleb believes there will be wholesale changes in the global economic and banking sectors within the next decade. Regardless of what happens between now and then, it is likely that McCaleb will play a significant role in the next phase of the cryptocurrency era.

End Citizens United Continue To Support Reform Seeking Candidates

End Citizens United was established in 2015 with a single aim in mind, reverse the controversial and divisive Citizens United decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010. The Group grew quickly at the grassroots level but initially found little support for its pledge to ignore special interest group funding for Democrats during the 2016 election cycle. The number of supporters agreeing to sign the pledge created by End Citizens United Chair Tiffany Muller has proven more popular in 2018 with more than 70 election finance reform seeking candidates signing for the endorsement of the PAC. Among those who have signed the pledge are some of the biggest names in the Democratic Party including Nancy Pelosi and independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Others who have decided to align themselves with End Citizens United including Kirsten Gillibrand who has turned her back on more than $1 million of special interest group funding to only accept donations from the grassroots level. Gillibrand and many other candidates believe the support of End Citizens United will be important during the 2020 Presidential Election cycle when potential candidates will face questions about their own acceptance of dark money. In 2017, the campaign season for the 2018 Midterms began in earnest around Thanksgiving when the Big Money 20 list of Republicans was revealed by Tiffany Muller.

The End Citizens United Chair has targeted Republicans who accept major donations from special interest groups including Tom MacArthur of New Jersey who has accepted more than $1 million fro special interest groups during his career. The PAC has endorsed Andy Kim, a diplomat and Rhodes Scholar who has pledged not to accept special interest group funding during his campaign for office. Another Democrat looking to overcome a Republican candidate with a track-record of accepting funding from special interest groups is Brendan Kelly. The former State Attorney of Illinois is battling to overcome COngressman Mike Bost who became known for his acceptance of special interest funding after accepting more than $400,000 from Paul Ryan’s Super PAC to retain an anti-reform stance during his time in Washington.

Flavio Maluf Talks About The Impacts Of The Brazilian Truck Drivers Demonstrations

The Brazilian economy grew in the first quarter of 2018 by 0.4% comparing it to the last quarter of 2017. The agricultural sector in Brazil was lower, though, comparing it to the previous quarter. This sector fell by 2.6% in the first quarter of the year and matched what this sector had done during the first quarter of 2017. One reason for this decline was that truck drivers had been demonstrating recently with one 10 day period where no deliveries were made at all.

Flavio Maluf is the president and chief executive officer of Eucatex, a company in the agricultural industry. He says that his industry lost its rhythm during this period and the harvest during this quarter slowed down a great deal with some companies stopping production altogether because they couldn’t get their produce to market. The two biggest harvests to be affected were sugarcane and maize, he said. Visit to learn more.

Flavio Maluf says that the truck driver demonstrations is also affecting the production of meat. Farms with animals can’t get feed delivered which means the price of meat is going to be negatively impacted. He also sees coffee being negatively impacted as growers couldn’t get their beans to ports. He says these issues will be reflected in the second quarter results that will come out in July.

He added that 2017 was a great year in the agricultural industry. In particular soybeans and tobacco had great years of production. The harvest for that year was 240 million tons which was a record for Brazil. He says that despite the rising cost of goods and decreased availability to produce many people in Brazil support the demonstrating truck drivers.

Flavio Maluf graduated from Armando AlvaresPenteado Foundation with a degree in mechanical engineering. He also is a graduate of New York University where he earned a business administration degree. He started working at Eucatex after earning his mechanical degree and progressed quickly into leadership positions. His company contracts with farmers to grow eucalyptus which his company converts into products such as ceiling tiles and panels. The focus is on providing sustainable and safe products that will be used as building materials.

Employees’ Contribution to the Success of Fortress Investment Group.

Many investment management firms are starting to succumb to the economic challenges to which the investment sector has been subjected. These challenges include poor leadership, low investment returns and stiff competition among the industry players. However, Fortress Investment Group has defied the odds and remained stable throughout the challenging times. This has not been out of luck or a coincidence. It has been as a result of a clear strategic plan that has been laid by the management of the company, led by a team of three co-presidents namely Randal Nardone, Peter Briger and Wes Edens. The trio forms a concrete foundation that has supported Fortress Investment Group and enabled it to remain stable while many of the other similar firms are collapsing.

Several core aspects have been behind the success of Fortress Group. One of them is the diversification of its portfolio, which was the initiative of Peter Briger when he joined the company in 2002. Before then, Fortress Group was mainly managing private equity and credit fund for its clients. When Briger joined the company, other investment strategies were introduced to the company’s portfolio which made its asset under management increase rapidly. Some of these asset strategies were capital, hedge funds, liquid markets and other financial vehicles that could create continuous cash flows for Fortress and its customers. All this was made possible by the great team of employees at Fortress Investment Group that possess specialized expertise in managing, valuing and pricing of assets, both financial and physical.

The second factor that has been critical to the success of Fortress Investment Group is its effective management of operations. The firm has some sound equipment that it has developed to enable the efficient monitoring of investment strategies which sometimes are too sophisticated for the ordinary investor to track. These have been accompanied by the excellent operations management and evaluation of both structural and strategic facts that could affect the performance of the investments under their management.By the end of 2017, Fortress Investment Group had more than 1000 employees on board, many of which comprised professional investment experts that ensure that the investment operations in the company run smoothly.

Jeff Yastine Wants Investors To Understand The Plight Of Amazon


Jeff Yastine joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2015 as its editorial director and the editor of the Total Wealth Insider.

He worked as a correspondent and anchor with the PBS Nightly Business Report for over a decade and a half and was nominated for an Emmy. Visit to know more about Jeff Yastine.

Jeff Yastine has been noticing that Amazon is receiving more and more negative comments and that this may be a sign that people are becoming tired of having to compete with the giant. He believes that at some point a United States President will accuse the company of violating antitrust laws and that this will go badly for Amazon. Jeff Yastine has indicated through Tweets that many stores are beginning to go out of business because of Amazon. He made it clear that even though these companies were likely being run in a way that was best for them, it didn’t seem to matter; Amazon continues to crush them all.

Jeff Yastine has also made it clear that many retailers are forced to list their items on Amazon and that Amazon can also list their own similar products at a reduced price on their website. He agrees with Lina M. Khan, a legal scholar from Yale, who said that Amazon’s platform will probably be a target for antitrust regulators at some point. She also indicated that Amazon’s case is a hard one because it isn’t exactly violating antitrust laws, and she thinks some of this has to do with the way that Jeff Bezos has been able to get around them. The problem is that most retailers are forced to use Amazon and that this allows Amazon to collect a large amount of data about these retailers.

Jeff Yastine believes that the hunt is already beginning, because in Japan, an antitrust group took a closer look at the company’s offices after possible antitrust laws were broken. It found that Amazon had been passing on the charges of deals it offered to its customers to suppliers of goods and that these suppliers gave in because they would have to remove their products from the company’s website if they didn’t.
