For a couple of years, Gareth Henry has worked in the financial industry and held various senior investment positions both in New York and the UK. From 2005-2007, he worked at Schroders as a director and then quit to work for Fortress London as an International Investor Relations Director till 2013. Gareth then got a promotion to work at Fortress Liquid market as a Global leader of Investor relations until 2015. Currently, he is working at Angelo, Gordon & Co as the Global leader of Investor relations.
In a statement by Gareth, he said that attaining a top degree from a good university is crucial if one wants to succeed in his/her career. He took a brave step when he decided to go back to university in 2001 at the age of 32. Studying degree in actuarial maths from Heriot-Watt, Gareth attained a first-class degree which he believes helped propel his career in finance by helping him understand the maths behind the investments.
He says that choosing to do actuarial maths gave him a better understanding of the investment industry. Moreover, the advice given together with excellent teaching standards in the university molded him for success. Gareth Henry has decided to help others experience what he got. He offers financial support through the Gareth Henry bursary and at the same time mentors and coaches students. Gareth believes that by doing this, the selected students can add value from the career guidance given. He adds that courses taught in school are not in vain and one needs them in the future.
Looking at the great success that he has made in his career, it goes without saying that education is crucial for career success. He, however, argues that one needs to balance school with other fun activities as well. Gareth Henry says that the $100 he doesn’t regret spending is the one he used to buy books to boost his learning. Money spent on education doesn’t go to waste; instead, it lays a firm foundation for career success.
The investment spectrum is no stranger to fraud. Many people the world over have been taken in by dishonest opportunities promising big payouts. This is why new programs making this same promise are met with wide speculation. Two such programs making the rounds are Matt Badiali’s Freedom Checks, and Mike Burnick’s Trump Bonus Checks. Both promise significant returns, promising a for-sure risk factor, and both conveniently avoid actually explaining how they work. Naturally, this causes would-be investors to hesitate. The truth behind both is not a scam, but a regular old investment with a little window dressing.
Badiali and Burnick are investment gurus, expert analysts with a firm understanding of the market. Both men provide actionable information through informative newsletters. In Badiali’s case he treks the globe to personally inspect natural resource companies. The projections he gives are based on first-hand knowledge directly from the source. If this sounds like a commercial for Matt Badiali it kind of is because an investment in Freedom Checks is a subscription to his newsletter. This is the fine print of both investments. In order to find out the best companies to invest in one has to purchase a subscription of their respective newsletters. Other than that both investments are very legit.
Freedom Checks are a little known investment perk called MLPs. Master Limited Partnerships are stakes in a natural resource company. They operate just like stock. U.S. businesses use them to take advantage of tax breaks. The freedom checks aspect of MLPs exist because these companies have to dispense most of their funds to stakeholders. Trump Bonus Checks are simply dividends certain companies pay out to stockholders as proof of cash flow. They have been around for awhile and are easy to access if you know where to look. Both can be gained without going through a specific program, but the programs exist to help point the way. The newsletters also provide other useful stock tips. So in both cases there is a legitimate ability to make profit. They are investments however, so the risk factor of receiving no profit exists as well.
There is something special about the work that Stream Energy has been doing lately. That is because they are helping to take care of their fellow citizens. Hurricane Harvey caused a lot of havoc and heartache in the Houston area. Although Stream Energy is based in Dallas, they felt that they had to do something to help their fellow Texans. They decided to partner with Hope Supply Co. to work out some ways that they could give back to those who so obviously needed it.
The two formed a charity wing to what they were doing. It was now going to be possible to give back to others in a way that was helpful and positive for the company’s image at the same time. You just don’t always see things that work out quite so perfectly like that.
Stream Energy is following in the footsteps of others who have discovered that it is truthfully quite helpful to them to give away at least some of their money to causes that are deserving of it. There is no better sign of this than the fact that corporate America gave away $19 billion dollars to such causes both at home and overseas in 2016.
Much of the world looks on in awe of the amount that American businesses are willing to help out those in need. They are impressed and want to figure out the secret to getting their own companies to make the same proactive choices. Stream Energy is a great exampleof yet another American company that is more than happy to help out others when they are in their time of need.
There is still a lot of work that needs to be done in terms ofHurricane Harvey relief. Just because the storm has faded into the background memories of most of the rest of the nation does not mean that Stream Energy has forgotten what has happened. They fully understand that they are still needed and that those in the Houston area in particular are not going to forget the helping hand that they lent when it was most in need.

Matt Badiali is a financial advisor in the natural resources sector and a geologist. He is currently the author and editor of the newsletter called Real Wealth Strategist published by Banyan Tree. Matt earned his bachelor’s degree in Sciences from the Penn State University. Soon after he graduated from the Florida Atlantic University with a masters in Geology, he continued to pursue higher studies. He enrolled for the Ph.D. programme in the University of North Carolina. Mid-way through his Ph.D., Matt got introduced to the finance sector and then there was no looking back. His unique financial strategies and vast knowledge of the intricate processes involved in the natural resource companies have consistently generated double-digit returns for his clients.
Matt Badiali recently shared a video describing the working of the latest and lucrative investment scheme called freedom checks. Unlike scams which are too good to be true, freedom checks is a scheme, currently offered by 568 companies who work on transportation, acquisition, refining, processing, and storage of natural resources. Matt, with his in-depth understanding of the scheme, believes that it is the way for the American investors to become independent in the natural resources sector. The recent fall of imports from the Middle East has proved to be beneficial for the natural resource companies on U.S. soil. The companies are projected to make payments amounting to $34.6 billion to its investors through the scheme of freedom checks in just one year.
All the 568 companies are called Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) as they donate 90 cents for every dollar earned to the investors on a monthly or a quarterly basis which is the only eligibility criteria to become an MLP. In the video, Matt Badiali explains that the payments made by the company to the investors on regular intervals of time are called freedom checks and can be deposited through the mail or directly wired to the trading accounts. According to Matt Badiali, the best perk of this scheme is that the profits are tax-free as they are considered as a return on capital. In the case of selling your investment in an MLP, the taxes are charged on the profits at a low capital gains rate.
Professional investor Paul Mampilly carefully follows the latest technology news for opportunities to make money. He is very interested in artificial intelligence, robotics, and the Internet of Things. Artificial intelligence is being used just about everywhere anymore. The ads you see online were selected for your viewing by an AI based on what you have recently shopped for online, such as at Amazon. Music apps will offer you suggestions based on what type of music you usually listen to. If you want to go on vacation there is AI that will suggest where to go and what to do once you’re there.
While some people think all of this artificial intelligence is a bit weird and scary, Paul Mampilly says that it’s actually pretty simple. He also regards it as harmless and very beneficial as it makes life easier. Businesses benefit from AI because it gives them a competitive edge against other companies in their industry. He says that companies that develop artificial intelligence or going to have their stocks skyrocket over the next decade and that is where investors should be looking for opportunities. At last year’s Total Wealth Symposium he let the audience in on three AI stock recommendations he had researched. That was 11 months ago and those three company’s stocks are now up 29 percent, 86 percent, and 145 percent.
Paul Mampilly says that the S&P 500 is about 16 percent during that time frame so investors could have made a lot more going with his recommendations instead of using an index fund following the S&P 500. He is also investing in companies that create robotics. He says that he has robotics in his own home such as the Nest Thermostat and a couple of drones. Robots are revolutionizing a number of industries including manufacturing, customer service, and hospitality. Paul Mampilly used to be a hedge fund manager before he decided to retire at age 42. Since he retired he still follows investments but now he does so for average people rather than the richest 1 percent. He writes Profits Unlimited which can be found through his publishing firm, Banyan Hill Publishing.
