From Capital Formation To Zohar's Billion Dollar Funds

Daily Summary Of Government Events & News For Investors

  • On March 27, Commissioner Daniel M. Gallagher gave a speech titled "Grading the Commission’s Record on Capital Formation: A+, D, or Incomplete? at the Vanderbilt Law School’s 17th Annual Law and Business Conference.  For whatever reason the speech was just published yesterday, but I plan on reviewing it later on this afternoon and will publish a short summary of insights.
  • Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer gave a speech yesterday entitled "Central Banking in the Shadows: Monetary Policy and Financial Stability Postcrisis," at the 20th Annual Financial Markets Conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta in Stone Mountain, Georgia on March 30, 201. Look for a review of this speech later on this week. Unlike Gallagher, who's fairly conservative, you can count on Fischer to give an unbiased assessment of the Fed's actions. 
  • Aegis Capital, LLC, Circle One Wealth Management, LLC, Diane W. Lamm, Strategic Consulting Advisors, LLC and David I. Osunkwo were all charged by the SEC for providing misleading documents to investors.  Aegis Capital is accused of overstating its AUM by over $119 million and the total number of client accounts maintained by at least 1,000, or over 340%. 
  • In good news the Fair Fund for Gregg C. Lorenzo and Charles Vista has finally been established and the FRB of New York published another interesting working paper entitled "The Gender Gap in Mathematics: Evidence from a Middle-Income Country.
  • Perhaps the biggest story of the day, and it's not being covered well in the general media, is the SEC's cease and desist order against Zohar Funds -- the scheme reportedly involved billions of dollars. Check back this afternoon for more on this story or read the full order yourself here.

If you like what you're reading, please join my mailing list to receive blog posts and updates as they occur. If you're an investor with all of your assets tied up in the stock market and cash, you might want to consider a few diversification strategies. Gold is the oldest asset in the world and it's inflation proof. Bitcoin is the gold standard for the cryptocurrency world, which is the fastest growing asset class in the world. Diversifying your portfolio into one or both of these assets can help to insure your portfolio against a stock market crash or inflation. Most importantly, it can help to safeguard the gains you've made over the last 10 years.

Please note that there are other companies that sell gold and Bitcoin on the market, and you should always do your research when making decisions about your portfolio. Just like your personal health, if you're planning on having major surgery, you need to get a second, and sometimes a third, opinion. You want to make sure your surgeon is good and has performed the procedure many, many times.  In the same way, you need to trust your broker and you need to make sure they are reputable. This is the process I used when looking for a broker to recommend.

Full disclosure: RegalAssets compensates me for everyone I send their way, but I would receive compensation from any company I chose to recommend. The only broker I'm recommending is Regal, primarily due to its innovative product offering in my favorite commodities - gold, precious metals and cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. They also have a distinguished track record for success (see below).

Next Steps: Use Regal as one of your options and compare against them. Your other brokers should be able to offer the same level of service and the same low rates. The kit is free and it will provide you with a basis for comparison. Don't wait, get started today. Fill out the form below to get your free investment kit.
