These mysterious entities are synonymous with extreme wealth and privilege. But what are they and what do they do? This book lifts the lid on this elite industry.A quick guide to hedge fundsAustralian investor Alfred Winslow Jones is credited with creating the world’s first hedge fund, in 1949. Jones used leverage (through derivatives or borrowed money) to magnify his gains (and losses). He also used short-selling — borrowing shares, selling them, and then buying them back at a lower price — to manage market risk.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Today, there may be more than 10,000 hedge funds worldwide, with total assets exceeding $3.5trn. This market has broadened to include a wide range of active management and risk strategies for alternative assets. With minimum subscriptions often exceeding $1m, hedge funds are seen as an asset class exclusively for the ultra-wealthy. And, thanks to high fees and generous compensation schemes, their managers are among the most highly paid (and high-living) people on earth.This hedge fund’s not just for the richMost hedge funds cater to UHNWIs (ultra-high-net-worth individuals), but a few are open to the public. According to Trustnet, there are 11 hedge funds listed as UK investment trusts. Of these, 10 have been listed for at least five years. The star performer is Pershing Square Holdings (LSE: PSH), whose share price has more than doubled (up 116.7%) since 2016. PSH is also #1 over three years (up a whopping 168.9%) and one year (up 66.8%).As a UK investor, I can buy into Pershing Square Holdings to share in its future success and performance. For example, I could drip-feed money monthly into this hedge fund. I can even buy its shares inside a tax-free Stocks and Shares ISA or personal pension. But why would I risk betting on a global hedge fund? Because it is managed by American billionaire Bill Ackman, one of the world’s most outspoken and successful investors.I can invest in PSH with just £25Personally, I’m a huge fan of Bill Ackman and his investment insight. A year ago, as Covid-19 spread panic worldwide, Ackman publicly warned in February 2020 that “Hell is coming” for investors. He invested $27m into highly geared bets against US company bonds. After credit ratings plunged, he sold this ‘crash insurance’ for a $2.6bn profit. That’s a 100-fold return in a single month. Ackman has built his reputation on such big, bold, ballsy bets.I call Ackman ‘Wild Bill’ because of his willingness, in his words, “to make a bold call that nobody believes in”. As I write, the PSH share price stands at £25.40, up more than two-thirds in a year. That’s 8.1% below PSH’s 52-week high of £27.65, hit exactly a week ago. This values this hedge fund’s UK trust at almost £3.2bn, which is a discount of 21.8% to its net asset value. If that discount narrows over time, this boosts shareholders’ returns.Obviously, investing in a listed hedge fund is highly risky. It’s absolutely not for widows and orphans. But Bill Ackman is a way better money manager than most (including me). Thus, I’m going to back this billionaire by buying into his UK-listed hedge fund via one of my personal pensions.

Located in the center of Rotterdam, immediately adjacent to the Bijenkorf department store by Marcel Breuer, the tower comprises a hybrid of urban programs disposed in three volumes of similar height but varying width. The volume that meets the ground, which rises to the height of the Bijenkorf store, houses a fashion store and parking garage, while the two upper volumes that rise above the department store contain apartments.

Western Union PASS football campaign to fund one million school days

Global payment services provider Western Union is to make a donation for every successful pass in this season’s UEFA Europe League to fund one day’s education for young people around the world. Its PASS Fund aims to fund one million school days.The campaign is fronted by former international footballer Patrick Vieira, and the donations start as the league kicks off on 20 September.The initiative will provide teacher training and student scholarships through NGOS with an initial focus on eleven countries – Brazil, China, Colombia, Jamaica, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Romania, Russia and Turkey.“Moving money for better is at the heart of what we do, and education is one of the main reasons our customers send money,” said Hikmet Ersek, Western Union President and CEO.“According to UNESCO, 71 million bright, hardworking students globally are not enrolled in secondary or vocational education. It’s a tremendous loss of economic and human potential, since each extra year of school can increase an individual’s potential economic opportunity. Through PASS, we intend to harness the power of football to build awareness of this challenge as well as deliver on-the-ground support that will make a difference to young people and their communities.”Football fans around the world will also be encouraged to add to the fund during the season through an online campaign.PASS will run for the three years of Western Union’s sponsorship of the UEFA Europa League, until 2015.http://wu-pass.org/  68 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Celebrity corporate football Howard Lake | 16 September 2012 | News  67 total views,  3 views today Advertisement Western Union PASS football campaign to fund one million school days About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
