Capital Group Investment Firm Is Highly Commended For Its Leadership

Janet Yang, a Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) recently conducted a review of Capital Group, a portfolio management company based in Los Angeles that specializes in fixed income and equity funds and services both large corporations and individual investor clients. Yang’s overall analysis graded the firm with an A, taking into account their overall culture and fund management structure as well as the men in charge of operations. She especially commended the leadership of Rob Lovelace, Darcy Kopcho and Tim Armour, portfolio management specialists who are masters at executing investment strategies.

She commends the firm for its use of a multimanager fund system, a method that’s allowed for greater diversity in investments as more than one manager can manage parts of a fund and offset any losses with gains. Also, Armour has led Capital Group to becoming more open to interviews with the media and putting forth reports on how portfolios are managed and other tidbits of information that investors should know about. In addition, most investors are pleased to know that portfolio managers and analysts are usually tenured at Capital Group for quite a long period, and changes in management don’t happen that often. Tim Armour himself is an example of that.

Armour has been a very successful portfolio manager all throughout his tenure with Capital Group. He attended a small private college in Vermont, Middlebury College where he got his bachelor’s in economics. But it was enough for Capital Group to notice and Timothy Armour began his career at the company about 33 years ago as a company associate.

He did very well in the program and got promoted to equity investment analyst, a position managing the portfolios of clients in both telecom and special service industries. Timothy Armour would later become a senior portfolio manager where much of his work has been focused on, and then became head of the firm’s Research and Management Company and Management Committee, and is now CEO of the entire company.

Armour was elected to be Chairman of Capital Group in July of 2015 after the passing of former Chairman Rothenberg. Armour regarded Rothenberg as a friend and a great leader but vowed to stay the course that he and the leaders before him had run in the company. Armour also helped Capital Group form a strategic partnership with Samsung Asset Management, a move he describes as being beneficial to the needs of Korean investors.

Water Release from Squaw Valley

Since October, Squaw Valley has been dealing with a big water problem that they never would have expected when they installed their new water system over the summer. This is a problem that came from the heavy rains that Placer County received in the fall and it caused a lot of damage. The water leaked out through the new system and immediately became compromised to the point that the resort was unable to use it for anything. They immediately shut off the ability of the public to consume the water at Squaw Valley and Placer County has issued a statement that it does not affect the surrounding areas.

After realizing that they would not be able to use the water to be able to serve people in the restaurants or for drinking, they found that they could, in fact, still use it to make snow with so that their ski season will not be affected. People may not be able to grab a bite to eat at the top of the mountain but they will certainly be able to ski down it just as they would any other year that there wasn’t a problem with the water.

Since this happened, Squaw Valley has been working to make the corrections that they need to so that they can turn the water back on and business can get back to the usual for the guests of the resort. They want to make sure that all of their guests are taken care of throughout the winter and they have focused most of their efforts on helping them. They are still taking some time to work on the water but it has been increasingly harder with temperatures that are dropping to even lower and making the ground harder to work with.

The dedication that Squaw Valley has to their guests is clear to see in the way that they have handled the situation. While they want to make sure that their water is working the right way, they also want to make sure that their guests are taken care of above everything else that they have done. They are sure that the guests will be able to do things better if they treat them better first instead of working to make sure that the water is done first. This shows a true commitment to the people who come to the resort and visit there.

As the season progresses, Squaw Valley hopes to get the water turned back on. They want to make sure that their resort is the best possible and that the people who are there are able to eat when they are there. In the meantime, they are working to make sure that people have the opportunity to eat and drink with the vending machines that they have set up over the resort. They have even begun providing complimentary water bottles to the people. This is something that they hope to resolve soon and they thank their guests for their continued commitment to Squaw Valley.

Manageable and Alive Hair from Wen by Chaz

When you notice your hair looking limp and lifeless, you may panic and choose to pursue the wrong solution for the problem. Your first choice should be to examine how you care for your tresses. Start with your daily regimen. Do you wash your hair daily, blow dry it or use hot irons to curl it? If so, it might be time to change your routine.

Washing your hair daily is stripping your hair of its natural oils. This is very destructive. Wen hair care is the only system that does not strip the natural oils from your hair when it cleanses it. The process of caring for your hair should consist of treatments that help the hair in its natural state.

Hair is keratinized protein, a dead substance, but it starts out alive and can continue to be healthy after it grows out. To do this it needs care. Chaz Dean’s brand is the only shampoo and conditioner system that doesn’t strip your hair of the natural oils your scalp produces to protect your hair. That’s only the first protective property of the Wen system. It also moisturizes the hair and adds shine.

Wen by Chaz improves your hair’s manageability by treating it mildly and moisturizing each strand, so your hair’s normal properties can be revealed. When washed by Wen by Chaz, the hair you were blessed with has an opportunity to relax, becoming more manageable and alive.

Nathaniel Ru Healthy Eating

Starting a new restaurant is more work than many people realize. Restaurants and food companies have a high failure rate for a variety of reasons. The profit margin on food is really low, which means that business owners have to sell a lot of product to break even. In addition, the fixed expenses of operating a restaurant are high. Many times, business owners have to borrow a lot of money just to get started.

 

Nathaniel Ru

 

Nathaniel Ru has had success with Sweet Green because he has taken a different approach to owning and operating a restaurant than many people in the industry. He started in a small restaurant format, and this helps to reduce his operating expenses. In addition, he concentrates on healthy food that is more expensive. Although this is a unique market with fewer customers, it allows him to earn high profits on the food that he does sell.

 

Financing Needs

 

When running a business, there are always going to be capital requirements that get in the way of growth. However, business owners have to balance the needs of the present and the future. Borrowing money to grow the business seems like a great idea, but over time it will eat into the cash flow of the business. A company must have a positive cash flow to remain in business over time. This is one of the biggest reasons that restaurant and food companies go out of business so often. If you want to take things to the next level with your company, make sure you have a long term plan for growth.

 

Future Plans

 

In the coming years, Nathaniel Ru wants to continue to invest in Sweet Green. He believes that there are many more locations where he could start this concept. The local population has to be more affluent and willing to pay more for healthy food for the concept to work. However, he has found many locations around the country that fit this profile. In the coming years, he expects to open up many more locations with Sweet Green as he expands his business footprint.

 

Dehydrator Basics + Recipes From Markus Rothkranz

Dehydrator basics, behold the healthy delicious possibilities

Fresh vs Powder
-With fresh foods, there is moisture, which is an oxidant.
-If you pick a fruit such as an apple from the tree and don’t eat it right away the apple oxides. The apple will appear moldy and this is due to oxidation.
-If you cut the fruit into slices, place them in the dehydrator, after a few hours in the dehydrator the fruit will be ready and will last for a few weeks to months afterward.
-Nutritional value when using the dehydrator isn’t lost.
-Normally, if food is off the shelf, food will lose their nutritional value.

Another complaint that comes with a dehydrator is that sometimes the wet food is still wet. The problem is that people are not flipping the food after the first cooking desired time. An example of what to dehydrate properly is garlic naan.
