Capitalism and Whole Life Insurance - Part 1

I have been in the financial service business for over 20 years and have developed some strong bias in direction of certain products or ideas. Much of what I'll express in this article is what I have realized from reading, listening, experiencing and observing, dating back to my college years when I studied Constitutional History.

All of those years mixed with the tragic loss of two of my dear friends who were professional peers, have prompted me to put in writing this article. I write it more to put my ideas to paper. If it has worth to anybody else, then I am extra enriched.

Although I would not blame them for any of the content material here I would dedicate this text to those two associates: Ray Hooper, whom I loved like a son, who's cheerful way of living brightened my life, who understood that the importance of bringing worth to someone's life because they had brought value to yours was the measure of loyalty and is what provides heart to capitalism. And to Les McGuire, who became like a son as well as a teacher, who drove me crazy, by no means letting me relax mentally. For the remainder of my life I'll continually be reading more and asking why because Les challenged me to think extra clearly.

Both Ray and Les have taught us in both life and death the actual meaning of Human Life Value.

Though I take full duty for this text I willingly give credit to all those who's quotes I have used. I've made an attempt to put in quotations the direct quotes I've used and provide credit to each here rather than in footnotes. I would encourage the reader to take the time to read the sources directly. If I have used a single word or phrase that seems as if it comes from another source, it most likely did, and so I give credit to so many listed and not listed for helping me, over the years, in formulating my thinking. However, I repeat, I take full responsibility for the thoughts as compiled here.

Credit to Robert Castiglione LEAP the Key to Financial Success
Thomas J. Dilorenzo How Capitalism Saved America (lots of my quotes are taken from his book)

I have been in the Life Insurance coverage industry long enough to have experienced both ridicule and admiration for helping clients buy life insurance. In those same years I have watched my own peers scramble to search out the words to explain what they do for a living rather than say they sell life insurance.

I've been involved long enough to have seen my own clients use their life insurance for its intended purpose. I have seen young and older clients pass away leaving the death benefit to their spouses. I've seen others borrow their cash value to send children to college, or purchase a car or make other investments. I've seen others use their policies to secure business loans or buy equipment. I've additionally seen others live lives of higher abundance figuring out they were able to spend their other assets because they'd purchased life insurance. To use the words of Les McGuire; I've seen life insurance used as a tool of production.'

I do not mean to imply by this discussion that life insurance is by some means part of our constitutional type of government, or that the product itself is in some way one of the pillars of the constitution. Nonetheless, I do intend to recommend that one of the pillars of the constitution is Capitalism. And that capitalism gives us the free agency to pursue happiness' by freely laboring to secure to ourselves the rewards of that production, that are property in all its forms. I'd firmly suggest that Permanent Life Insurance coverage is among the greatest financial tools out there to us to assist in that pursuit of happiness briefly it's a instrument of capitalism.

Banking and Finance Regulations of the Kingdom of Thailand

The banking industry in Thailand forms an essential segment of the nation's financial services industry. In other words, banking sector in Thailand is well-established. The history of Thai banking dates back to 1865, when the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank appointed its agents in Bangkok. Accordingly, the HSBC established a branch in Bangkok, thereby becoming the first bank to open a branch in the country.

Following the establishment of HSBC branch, many European as well as business banks opened their branches. As a result, foreign banks became the dominant players in the nation's banking industry. In order to counter the supremacy of foreign banks, Siam Commercial Bank - the first Thai bank - was established in 1906. Later, more Thai banks were opened to trade with Asian countries, as a result of the Second World War, when majority of the foreign banks were forced closed.

After the world war, the Thai government introduced a protective policy in order to promote the growth of Thai banks in the country, which included limiting the operation of foreign banks to one branch office. As a result, foreign banks became less dominant players in the banking sector of Thailand. Since 1960, many innovative economic as well as social development plans have been introduced in the country, which in turn has led to rapid expansion of banking sector in Thailand's provinces, resulting in banks numbering more than 3000 throughout the country.

Thailand's modern banking system is made up of a variety of financial institutions including commercial banks, special purposes bank, and Government Savings Bank. Commercial banks are perhaps the most popular among the banks in Thailand. Commercial banks include both local and foreign banking institutions.

Being the biggest financial institutions in the country, Thai commercial banks render an array of services including acceptance of time savings as well as demand deposits, lending money via overdrafts, discounting of bills, and leasing. Their activities also cover fee-based services like custodian services, syndication of loans, feasibility studies, and consultations for mergers as well as acquisitions. Apart from these, in some instances, these banks issue negotiable instruments of deposit, apart from underwriting and issuing of debt instruments.

Commercial banks in Thailand, consisting of branches as well as representative offices of foreign banks, are functioned in accordance with the Thai laws and regulations formulated by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and the Bank of Thailand (BOI.) Formed in 1875 by the Ministry of Thailand, the Ministry of Finance initially acted as an agency of the government to administer national finance, collect revenues, and disburse royal funds.

In 1933, it got its present name and status as a result of the passing of the Civil Service Reform Act. With eight departments and 16 state enterprises under its control, MOF's major duties include supervision of matters in connection with operations of Government monopolies, property, and treasury. Additionally, it has power to provide loan guarantees for financial institutions, government agencies, and state enterprises.

Bank of Thailand started its operation in accordance with the formulation of the Bank of Thailand Act, on April 28, 1942. Among its duties are devising of monetary policy and supervision of financial institutions.

Now we will discuss banking regulation with regard to bank licensing. As per the Commercial Bank Act, first of all an application, containing particulars as entailed by the Ministry, must be filed with the Ministry of Finance in order to set up a commercial bank in Thailand. On the approval as well as the obtaining of a license from the Ministry, a commercial bank is opened as a limited public company.

However, a foreign bank has to comply with regulations formulated by the Thai government in order to open a branch in the country, such as the money should be brought from its head office. When comes to investment, Thai government permits foreign banks to hold 100% shareholding for up to a period of 10 years. After a period of 10 years, they are not required to divest their shares. But, in case, if they hold more than 49 percent of shares sold, they are not allowed to acquire additional shares.

In addition, the Commercial Banking Act has put forward certain laws and regulations for the maintenance of capital funds and reserves. As such, the commercial banks are required to maintain certain amount and types of the assets in the country.

Special purposes banks are state-owned financial institution whose activities are administered by the Thai government. However, they deal with only specific clients or projects. Included in the special purpose banks are the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives, the Government Housing Bank, and the Government Savings Bank. When comes to the Government Savings Bank, it consists of an extensive network of branches throughout the nations.

Banking and financial sectors in Thailand are further categorized into: Asset Management Companies, Credit Froncier Companies, Finance and Securities Companies, and International Banking Facilities (IBF.)

How Does Leverage and Debt Impact Returns on Residential Real Estate?

As a speculative investment, residential real estate has the potential to make or lose vast sums of money due to the impact of financial leverage (debt). Houses are typically leveraged at 80% of their value. During the Great Housing Bubble, this leverage was often provided at 100% by various lenders.

Leverage is a powerful ally when prices increase, but leverage works just as strongly against the speculator when prices decrease. For example, if a house is leveraged 80% and it increases in value 5% in one year, the return to the investor is actually 25% due to the 5 times multiplier created by leverage.

With the effect of leverage, speculation on housing can far exceed any competing investment strategy. However, the inverse is also true. If a house is leveraged 80% and it decreases in value 5% in one year, the loss to the investor is 25% of her downpayment, not just the 5% the house declined in value. Leverage magnifies both the return and the risk of any speculative venture.

One of the worst mistakes lenders made during the Great Housing Bubble was to allow 100% financing and negative amortization loans. This was a boon for speculators because it allowed them to participate in the market without any of their own capital and it allowed them to hold the speculative assets with a minimal debt service expense. Plus, there was the implicit idea that they would simply default if the deal did not go in their favor (which of course many did).

Combine these facts with the near elimination of loan underwriting standards allowing anyone to participate, and the conditions were perfect for rampant speculation, a wild increase in prices and so much speculative demand that many new and existing home purchases would remain vacant.

Leverage is a tool. It magnifies the return on investment in both directions. When prices are steadily rising, people want to use as much debt as possible to obtain the asset in question. When prices drop, heavily leveraged speculators get completely wiped out.

Real Estate and Global Warming Facts

The number 1 area that will see a huge increase in real estate value due to global warming

Adam: Hi, This is Adam, here with Steve Soreno, author of the Global Warming Survival Bible.
We've covered a lot about safety and survival. Are there positive effects from global warming?

Steve: Yes, definitely. Anything bad has a silver lining. In the case of global warming, that silver lining can be substantial. As an example out of the multitude of possibilities, there will be benefits to the real estate value in some areas of the world, or even areas within some countries or very small specific regions. And I'm saying that because an increased valuation will be caused by two things: for one, some areas will in fact benefit directly from global warming and that will have a positive effect to real estate in these specific areas. Secondly, some areas may not benefit directly but the fact that some neighboring regions will suffer more from global warming will make these places be perceived as an increased value. Broad examples of places that will benefit from global warming are: parts of Canada, Norway, Sweden and other places as well.

Adam: Do you have an example?

Steve: Sure, as an example, Northern parts of some of the Canadian provinces will see increases in real estate value of 4-5-6 hundred percent in the next 10-20-30 years because these places will have a huge influx of people in the coming years. And that will happen because a lot of people from all over the world will want to escape drastic climate changes in their own countries and will migrate to Canada. Why they'll want to migrate there? As an example northern Ontario has more lakes and fresh water than any other place in the world, its northern parts will warm up to become good for agriculture, and it has plenty of uninhabited space that is extremely affordable now.

And this is just an example, but there will be other positive effects from global warming that people can make the most of. However, as with anything else, timing is crucial.

Adam: Awesome stuff, Steve. If you'd like to learn more about what you can do to prepare for future changes visit You can also get the rest of the videos in the series plus two chapters from Steve's international book release.

An In-depth Look At Vanilla Planifolia Orchids: How The Breed Continues To Exist

Nearly everyone has gotten a taste or whiff of vanilla, either in its extract form or in whole dried pods. Vanilla is used in a variety of products including ice cream, cakes and pudding. It's also used to enhance the smells of fine perfumes. However, most people don't even know where this vanilla taste comes from. It's actually from the orchid Vanilla Planifolia, which are a South American flower and discovered by a Mexican tribe called the Totonacs.

A Broad Look At Vanilla Planifolia

How The Orchid Thrives

Vanilla Planifolia can survive in daylight temperatures of no more than 90 degrees. However, it can survive in the nighttime hours with temperatures hovering around 60 degrees to 70 degrees. Humidity levels must be in the 80 percent range. This type of orchid prefers to develop in high places like trees because they keep the sunlight from falling directly upon it. However, in agriculture, Vanilla Planifloria grows on canes or other supportive elements, which can give it the needed altitude.

How It Continues To Exist

The orchid is held up by root extensions, which interweaves around the support frame. The blossoms of this orchid do not live very long, usually no more than a day. It is very important that the Vanilla Planifolia is pollinated by the Melipone bee before it dies. Before the mid-1800s, it was not possible for the orchids to grow outside of Mexico since this was the location of the Melipone bee. However, the hand (artificial) pollination method was soon discovered around this time and changed how and where the Vanilla Planifolia grew. Today, this orchid type can be found in many countries such as China, Indonesia and Madagascar.

Giving Credit To Two People For Artificial Pollination

When you take a gander at who created artificial pollination, two people came up with the idea within years of one another. The first person to give credit to is botanist Charles Morren who, in the mid 1830s, watched bees perform the pollination task. The second person to give the credit to is Edmond Albius, who was just an adolescent slave boy. Five years after Morren conceptualized the artificial pollination idea, Albius created a way that successfully performed hand pollination. Keep in mind that these two probably never met but were able to come up with similar ideas within years of one another.

After Pollination Has Occurred

Once pollination has taken place, the orchid will develop seedpods that contain unique black vanilla seeds. This pod should not be taken from the orchid stem until it's ripe. It takes nine months for the pod to ripen and when it does so, it has a yellowish shade on its end. If the pod is still a dark green color, the pod still needs to ripen.

The timing for harvesting these pods needs to be just right. If they are picked too late, they'll begin to crack, exposing the seeds and reducing their worth. Since this process must be done manually and so quickly, many workers need to be involved in the task.

Once the Vanilla Planfolia has been harvested, the seeds will stop growing when introduced to an extreme temperature change, whether this is freezing cold temperatures or boiling hot ones. Then they are sweated out, dried and left alone in wooden boxes for some amount of time so that a flavor will develop.

There is an overwhelming demand for vanilla in the world, which makes it so expensive. Due to the expense, there are many artificial chemicals that try to copy the vanilla taste; however, the taste is noticeable for anyone who has tried both.

If it were not for a young child to come up with this hand pollination technique, this vanilla substance would have stayed an exotic opulence most people would never have known about. Think about that as you get to experience real vanilla: all the hard and tedious work that it takes to make this resilient orchid a taste to bring to your kitchen/dining room table.

Bad Credit Home Financing - Is It Possible To Buy A Home With Bad Credit?

At one point in time, having bad credit made it extremely difficult to get a home loan. Fortunately, things have changed, and many people with less than perfect credit are obtaining home loans with decent rates. Getting a home loan with bad credit is doable. However, you must be willing to seek out lenders that offer bad credit loans.

Reasons to Consider Purchasing a New Home

Homeownership is beneficial for several reasons. Individuals who rent their homes or apartments are literally throwing away money. If your rent is 0 a month, in a year's time you would have spent 00. Instead of making your landlord rich, this money could go towards paying a mortgage and building equity

Furthermore, if you own a home, you are eligible for certain tax deductions. Owning a home also makes it possible to get extra cash by tapping into your home's equity. Home equity loans and lines of credit are perfect for home improvements, unexpected expenses, debt consolidation, etc.

Choosing a Lender for a Bad Credit Mortgage

Be aware that not all lenders will offer loans to people with bad credit. Although many mortgage companies have started offering sub prime mortgage loans, some lenders will not approve an application if your credit score falls short of their minimum requirements.

Because credit blemishes are common, and the average household carries a large credit card balance, many lenders have begun offering loan programs for all credit types. These loans also benefit those unable to save for a down payment or closing fees.

Tips for Getting Approved for a Bad Credit Mortgage

If you are hoping to get approved for a home loan with bad credit, you may qualify for a better rate if you fix credit problems beforehand. Improving your score by as little as ten points may make you eligible for a slightly lower rate.

Additionally, get multiple quotes by using a mortgage broker. Brokers can help you locate many sub prime lenders that offer bad credit mortgages. When completing a quote request, choose a broker that does not review credit. If your credit is evaluated by four different lenders, it may decrease your score.

Instead, provide an accurate credit description. It may help to check your personal credit report before applying. Once you obtain at least four offers from different mortgage lenders, compare the quotes, and pick a lender. Complete the loan process by submitting an official loan application. The chosen lender will check your credit before finalizing the loan.

Payday Loan Myths Unraveled

For some people, the idea of getting a payday loan is still a strange prospect it might even be a little scary. With some of the news stories about instant loans circulating the media, warning consumers about the pitfalls of fast cash advances, applying for one may not seem like a good plan if you find yourself in a financial bind.

But in many instances, a payday loan can be an excellent way to obtain cash quickly, especially in an emergency situation. Not everything in life is planned you may suddenly have to pay a large car repair bill, or any other unexpected expense. If you don't own a credit card, or have already maxed it out, and don't want to burden friends or family with a request for money, the only option you really have left is an overnight cash advance.

A payday loan is a small short-term loan (usually in the amount of 0-00) that has a high interest rate. It allows you to access cash, usually overnight, before your next payday, which is much faster than a traditional loan from a bank. And it's easier to be approved for cash advance loans you can even apply for one online. You don't have to go through a credit check, the process is discreet, and the transaction is secure. And if you have no credit, or bad credit, this won't affect your ability to obtain a payday loan. It's no wonder payday loans are growing in popularity.

Although you have to pay a fee to take out a cash advance, in some circumstances getting your hands on much needed funds, almost instantly, is worthwhile, as long as you know your next paycheck will be able to cover the loan right away.

Of course, just like with any other loan, it's important to realize that you should only apply for a payday loan if you plan to pay it back with your next paycheck. That is the purpose of a payday loan to advance you the money you need before you get paid. Don't go into the process with the intention of renewing the loan.

Most of the controversy surrounding payday loans is entirely unwarranted. Ultimately, a payday loan company provides a service that is needed in the community, and when used responsibly for its intended purposes, it can really help people get out of sticky situations.

If you plan on getting a cash advance, just follow a simple rule to avoid running into unwanted problems: apply for one from a reputable company that won't gouge you for all you have (or don't have). If you take advantage of a cash advance loan, pay the loan back by your next payday, so more interest charges won't accumulate.

Payday loans can be an effective way to access cash quickly, at times when you need it most. As long as you plan to use the service the way it's meant to be, and avoid companies that don't cater well to their customer's needs, it might just be the best thing for you.

What Can You Find in Freedom Debt Relief Reviews

My cousin Paul almost filed for bankruptcy due to his overwhelming debt problems just a few months back until a random internet search brought him face to face with Freedom Debt Relief reviews. He has been trying to stay afloat in the midst of the deluge of bills he gets each month from his creditors but he is losing the battle for sure.

He has five credit cards and each card has been maxed out. He had even stopped paying for two of them while on the remaining three cards, he is only paying the minimum each month which is not enough as the interests kept adding up and his minimum payments seem to be servicing the interest only. He was barely managing these when suddenly, my aunt, his mother, fell seriously ill and Paul had to foot the medical bills which amounted to ,000. This means he is owing six different creditors up to almost 0,000.

At his wits' end, he was considering bankruptcy when he came across some websites giving reviews of debt management firms and debt settlement firms. While he may have heard of Freedom Debt Relief, it never crossed his mind to check out the services they offered. Like a lot of weary consumers, he was worried about financial scams and firms out to cheat and con unsuspecting consumers with serious financial problems. However, after reading through the reviews on Freedom Debt Relief, Paul is certain that this company is not merely a debt settlement company and is definitely not part of a fraud or scams that have been going around. I had also advised Paul to be extra careful when seeking third party assistance so that he does not get cheated easily. Some unscrupulous firms have been known to target those desperately seeking solutions to their debt problems. Instead of actually helping, these scammers will give all sorts of promises from purportedly helping you to get government debt relief grants to clearing your debts within a year.

That's why it's important to read reviews by consumers instead of only relying on the information provided by these companies. Reviews, opinions and comments on any firm or company will be more valuable coming from someone who has used its services. That's why Paul was suitably impressed by the glowing reviews that Freedom Debt Relief seemed to be getting from consumers. Many of the reviewers had escaped bankruptcy by signing up with Freedom Debt Relief and most of them are clearly satisfied with the firm's customer service and efficiency.

Now, after signing up with Freedom Debt Relief, Paul has started the journey towards paying down his debts. The firm is helping him through debt negotiation with some of his creditors and though it may take a while, he is hopeful of being able to clear up his debts in a shorter period of time compared to taking up a second mortgage to consolidate all of his debts. At the very least, he was not risking losing his home through this method.

Many consumers are unaware that they could try debt negotiation for a debt settlement of part of the amount they owe. If the debt negotiation is successful, it simply means the creditors have agreed to forgive a certain percentage of the debts, maybe 30%, and the debtor need only pay the remaining 70% as settlement of the loan. This is a method worth considering as it means settling some of your debts at a lower price.

So, be like Paul. Read up more about debt relief and the methods to achieve a debt free life. Look for valid reviews and check out Freedom Debt Relief to see if they have a program that suit your needs. After all, it never hurts to check out more firms to resolve your financial problems.

Difference Between A Wallet And Billfold- Review

Wallet is usually made of leather. It is a tiny, flat and pocket sized folding case used to carry credit cards, debit cards, photographs, driver's license, paper money, and the like. The most important quality of the wallet is that it contains a number of compartments of different sizes and sometimes with a zipper closure or snap. On the other hand, a billfold is a type of wallet that folds over. Billfold is also made of leather and you can find a clip in the middle to take care of the bills. Both billfold and wallet have the same use as they serve to carry all your important documents. That means both these terms offer the same function. The only difference between these two is that the term billfold which is the short form of bill folder is used by the people long after the term wallet was introduced. So you actually clip the bill then fold it in half. Even though the fact that these two address the same needs, they are used as the synonyms for each other. And that is why it is called a billfold. It is so simple in design.

You can prefer wallet or bill fold according to your needs. If you have a number of cards or other important documents to be carried every day, you should buy a wallet that can accommodate all of them. Billfold helps you to hold or carry all your essential documents in it without damage or wrinkling them. Many among us are in the habit of carrying so many important receipts, cards, bank papers, bills, etc. This habit leads the wallet or billfold manufacturers to change its shape and functionality. As a result the modern wallet can accommodate all your valuable personal documents without messing together. In the olden days, wallets were seen as small bags made of leather or cloth that can be used to hold all the stuffs in them securely when going for a trip. Now the design has changed but the purposes for both of them remain the same. Thus you cannot find out any major differences to distinguish between them. These days, electronic wallets are offered in the market that can detect its right owner and no others can use it. Such wallets prevent pick pocketing.

Why Wells Fargo Home Loans With Bad Credit Are A Leading Option

It is no secret that not all mortgage providers are the same. While many big names boast an extensive nationwide reach, and others affordable mortgage packages, very few can boast both at the same time. But Wells Fargo is one of them, making home purchase financing affordable for every pocket. In fact, getting Wells Fargo home loans with bad credit is arguably the least complicated process.

Wells Fargo is a huge name in the US mortgage sector, but it has grown chiefly as a result of specializing in solution-orientated mortgage products to bad credit borrowers and those in difficult financial situations. This makes them a favorite amongst those applicants seeking approval despite low credit scores.

The range of products available is such that practically every kind of home loan situation can be successfully addressed, from reverse mortgages to the adjustable rate mortgage. But it also structures mortgage programs to suit specific home buyer situations.

Who Is Wells Fargo?

As already mentioned, Wells Fargo is one of the largest mortgage providers in the US today. In fact, of every 16 homes sold in the country, Wells Fargo has sold one of them. But it is its commitment to affordable lending that has earned it its reputation. Little wonder that getting a Wells Fargo home loan with bad credit ratings is so possible.

In recent years, it has grown further, buying into the mortgage giant, Wachovia Corporation, and spreading its reputation for granting approval despite low credit scores to a wider market.

This merger, effectively created an unbeatable mortgage corporation, ensuring its customers gets the very best in services, offers, policies and care when they seek or secure a home loan.

Home Loan Options Available

It would be easy to look upon Wells Fargo as just another mortgage provider, but the company has grown to dominate the US home financing sector for a very good reason - it offers services that borrowers need. Getting Wells Fargo home loans with bad credit scores is straightforward, but the options available offer solutions to specific needs too.

In fact, there is considerable effort on the part of the company to structure individual loans in a way that benefits the borrower. So, getting approval despite low credit scores is just a start, with fast and reliable services that are void of those frustrating bureaucratic dead ends.

Amongst this list of services and home loan products are affordable New Home Construction loans, competitive Home Equity Loans, helpful and supportive First Time Buyers Programs and carefully agreed Timed Withdrawals Programs, where repayments are cued to ensure no late or missed mortgage payments.

Wells Fargo Extra Services

Most mortgage providers are happy to offer consultation services, but when seeking a Wells Fargo home loan with bad credit scores, borrowers can benefit from a greater level of customer care. It is not just about good terms and competitively low interest rates, but ensuring the mortgage deal suits the borrower.

There are several programs available, but arguably the most valuable are the provision of closing guarantees, credit counseling and loan counseling. While getting approval despite low credit scores is important, successfully closing the deal is crucial. Wells Fargo can guarantee the deal is closed properly, thus removing uncertainties.

Credit counseling provides prospective applicants with advice on how to boost their credit scores in advance of submitting an application, to increase the chances of getting a better home loan deal. Loan counseling, meanwhile, is designed for first-time home buyers, with Wells Fargo offering a step-by-step guide to help them through the entire mortgage loan process.

Offshore & Hedge Funds

The term "offshore fund" refers to the funds run outside the UK, usually in low tax areas. These include the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong and Bermuda. In recent years Luxemburg and Dublin have become more significant also, as tax havens' within the European Union.
Many offshore funds are run by companies associated with large UK unit trust groups and most of the countries involved now have their own regulatory framework. Certain offshore funds receive recognition under the financial services and markets Act 2000 (FSMA 2000) and may be marketed in the UK.
Non-regulated and non re-cognised funds are subject to severe marketing restrictions in the UK
Prospectuses and details can only be forwarded to investment professionals such as stockbrokers and Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs).

Offshore funds that can be marketed into the UK
Funds that are recognised under the Undertaking for collective Investments in Transferable Securities (UCITS) Directive. See below for more details
Funds based in the designated territories, namely Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Bermuda, and recognised as satisfying FSA requirements.
The designated territories have similar regulation and investor protection at least equal to the UK.
These are termed regulated'.
Funds based outside the EU and the designated territories but satisfy the FSA requirements individually.
These are termed recognised'

Offshore OEICs
OEICs/ICVCs are the most common form of pooled investment in Europe. OEICs are based on the European type of ICVC known as Societe d' investissement a Capital Viable (SICAV). Unit trust, in contract, are more like what are known in Europe as Fonds Commun de Placement (FCP).

? The attraction of the OEIC is that it can issue any number of types of shares. As we saw earlier, an OEIC is open-ended', because the total amount invested in the scheme can be increased.
? The ability to offer a wide number of types of shares led to the concept of umbrella funds. In this type of fund, there are many types of shares under one management (the umbrella). Each type of shares can invest in a different international sector.
? There is a wider range of funds offered to the investor through an offshore OEIC than an onshore unit or investment trust. The funds include UK Equity, International Equity, International Emerging Markets, International Managed, America, Europe, Japan, Latin America, India, Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, Commodities and Currency Funds (in all the major currencies) and fixed interest funds (in all the leading currencies: eg yen, sterling, euro, US$ )

What is a Finance/Contract Hire/ Lease Gap Insurance Policy?

What is a Finance/Contract Hire/ Lease Gap Insurance Policy?
This is a question I am asked on a daily basis. Firstly this is a very specialised gap insurance policy to cover vehicles that have been purchased using a financing arrangement. When buying any insurance policy the first
thing to consider is does this policy meet all my needs adequately?

Standard gap policies generally require you to be the registered keeper or owner of the vehicle. Finance Gap Insurance is a more specific and states that you can either be the owner and registered keeper of the vehicle or the main driver for lease and contract hire purposes.

This is a very overlooked point but a very valuable one to consider as purchasing the wrong type of policy may invalidate any claim you need to make. General Return to Invoice and Vehicle Replacement Gap Insurance policies are for people who are purchasing a vehicle using cash, bank loan, traditional hire purchase or a PCP (Personal Contract Purchase). In all of the above cases you will become the owner of the vehicle and will be the registered keeper of the vehicle. All the above policies will require you to declare that you are the registered keeper of the vehicle in the small print.

For a car that is being hired using a personal /business lease or contract hire arrangement you will never become the owner of the vehicle. Under this arrangement you are simply hiring the vehicle from a company for a fixed amount of time. This arrangement is technically no different to renting a house, lawnmower or power drill. In terms of being the registered keeper of the vehicle this will vary between the provider. The majority register your name on the log book but with their address so they retain the V5 document. Others are more lenient and will put you as the registered keeper of the vehicle at your home address. In some cases the V5 will be in the name of the contract hire company at their address. This has become less common due to insurance issues and the database used by the police for tracing owners and insurers etc.

So why do you need any further insurance after your fully comprehensive motor policy?

It is a little known fact that in the event you have a total loss in a vehicle that is under a contract hire or lease agreement that you will be liable for the future value of the vehicle plus a percentage (or all) of the outstanding rentals under the hire/lease agreement.

Let's take an example: Mr Smith get a contract hire agreement on a new Ford Mondeo for 3 years paying 300 per month for the vehicle. The car is written off after 12 months in a non fault road accident. The insurance company values the car at 15,000. The contract hire company settlement is the future value of the vehicle being 14,000 and the outstanding instalments of 24 x 300. He has a settlement figure of 21,200. This leaves the customer with a shortfall of 6,200. So he has no vehicle also lost any upfront payment and to add insult to injury he has to find this enormous sum just to clear his liability to the contact hire provider.

So what is the solution?

Make sure you adequately protect yourself with a Finance Gap Insurance policy! You take an insurance policy to cover the difference between the motor insurance payout and the settlement figure from the lease / contract hire provider in the event of a total loss. In the example we looked at above the gap insurance policy would pay the difference in the settlement balance of 6,200.

This would have cost the customer approximately 100 to insure this shortfall thus avoiding a very stressful situation and a crippling payout from his own pocket. This type of insurance also has the benefit of providing 250 towards any motor insurance excess and will also cover any driver providing they are covered by a fully comprehensive motor insurance policy.
As an industry first specialist brokers will provide Finance Gap Insurance cover no matter how long you have owned the vehicle for. Even on a five year lease if you decide you want cover at two years they will provide this cover for the last three years of the contract.

Single Parent Dating: Are You Always Feeling Unsure About Relationships?

When a person goes into a relationship they would never think that they are "unsure" of it. The sad reality is that people have indeed that hidden feeling of "ambivalence" towards relationships- especially the real ones.

When it comes to ambivalence, people who usually feel this are those who are in a relationship but feel that they haven't found the right person yet. There are also those who are in a relationship but are conscious about their ambivalent attitude. These are the types that want to be in a relationship but can't sort out their feelings. They have the relationship in mind but think that there are also more important things, such as:

-Keeping things to themselves.

-Avoiding the pain relationships bring.

-Holding on to that great, single life.

-Being successful in your job.

-Not taking the risks.

Being ambivalent can lead you away from having a real relationship, but you can do something about it. You can control your desires and minimize these feelings of uncertainty. Here are some things that you can do about it:

1. Always be realistic about your goals.

When you have all those voices in your heading giving their opinions on things, like how to run your relationship, your job and your life- it can get you beat up. Remember though, that you can never muffle out all the sounds. All the decisions that you make often times come from inadequate data. Unless you are sure that you are 100% of the outcome then hold back making a decision. Or else, you'd end up making goals that can be far away from your reach- or too good to be true.

2. Pay attention.

When those feelings start to stir inside you: doubt, fear, hesitation and confusion- then try to take a break. How do you tell? Here are the ansswers: (a) When you are always asking for second opinion with friends; and (2) When you are always going after those obsessive conversations about relationships. When you feel that you are going there then you have to stop and decide for yourself. What do you really want? If you can't decide then you won't get it.

3. Keep away from ambivalence.

If you find yourself stuck with it, then think more positively. Think that you are sure about your decisions, that you are not as ambivalent as you think. Do something about it since your actions can change the course of things. When you act, you get results. So instead of thinking about all the uncertainties that relationships can bring- confront it. Act instead of just thinking. If you try and behave that a loving relationship is a priority for you then you'd get more results rather than confusing yourself. This get to help you decide which things are really important.

Having those feelings of uncertainty and it's not entirely good or bad. Nourishing or ignoring these feelings will not make them go away. Just acknowledge these different points of views and sort them out. By doing so you can carefully weigh your options before making a decision. Having good decision making skills can help you especially when it comes to relationship. You just have to remember that you don't only think for yourself, consider your partner as well. Dealing with these feelings will be more beneficial for you.

Be Careful of Vendor Finance Scams

There are some vendor finance scams out there have become a nightmare of the people who want to choose vendor finance as a way to start their own businesses. In order to make sure you get the right opportunities from vendor finance, you need to know what to look for with scams.

You may say that there is no way you would ever be taken advantage of like that. Yet you need to realize these scam artists are very good at what they do. They have carefully studied the methods of legitimate vendor finance programs. They likely have even been to many of those presentations. Every move the make is very calculated so you are drawn in. They want to make it as realistic for you as they can. Then when you make your down payment they will be able to run with it and leave you with nothing in return.

Another common scam is that they will include fees and clauses in the contract that will result in them getting a huge chunk of your profits. While you may not be agreeing to this upfront, if you sign the contract then you are bound by the terms of it. No court of law is going to accept the excuse that you didn't read it all or that you didn't understand it.

You need to know all you can about the vendor finance company before you work with them. How long have they been in business? What are their goals and their methods used for increasing their business? What is in it for them to help you with the funding you need for your own business? Take the time to read independent reviews online from other people that have worked with them. You also need to check with the Better Business Bureau to find out if any complaints have been logged.

You should reconsider whether you would work with them if you can't find any information on them at all. It could mean they continue to start up under a new business name, scam people, and then change the name to stay ahead of the game. With a reputable vendor finance program you should be able to come across plenty of good information about it.

Read all of the information careful before you sign on the dotted line. The paperwork for vendor financing can be lengthy and it can also be boring. Yet you don't want to commit yourself to anything without fully understanding what you will be required to do. Otherwise you set yourself up to be taken advantage of. Financially, it could destroy any chance you have of a successful business.

It may be a good idea to have an attorney look over the documents for you. If you aren't sure of what some of the terms and conditions mean, then ask the attorney explained to you. This extra precaution on your behalf can prevent you from getting involved with the wrong vendor finance company. If you feel that the company is pressuring you to hurry up and sign it then take that as a red flag that it could be a scam.

Anyone can be taken for a ride from a vendor finance scam so doesn't let you become a victim. By knowing what to look for and common tactics they use you can be better guarded against it. Should you become the victim of such fraud make sure you report it to local law enforcement. Too many people are embarrassed to do so. Yet that only gives these con artists more power to continue doing it to other people.

Mortgage Loans: The Documentation You Will Need

Mortgage loans are not as simple as regular personal loans, approval is more complicated because there are always higher amounts involved. Thus, when applying for a mortgage loan, there are several documents and proofs that you will need to show in order to get approved. Though each lender is different and thus, has different requirements for approval, there are some basics or guidelines that you should follow to be prepared for the application and as the old saying goes: better more than less.

Mortgage Loans For Previous Tenants

If you have been renting before and you are obtaining special terms for tenants, you will need to show proof of this fact by providing name and contact information of your landlord as well as proof of rent payments for at least two years. This information is important because the lender then knows that you have been able to afford your monthly rent payments and thus, you will be able to afford the loan payments as long as the amount is not significantly higher.

Nevertheless, you will still need to show proof of income. This is done by providing employment paystubs or tax returns if you are self employed. Any additional information regarding accounts, stocks, bonds, savings, etc. can provide more incentive to the lender because it shows that you are still capable of responding in case your income shrinks or you are left unemployed.

Mortgage Loans For Past Bankruptcies

If you have gone through a bankruptcy process in the recent past, you will need to show proof of the that you have been granted the discharge (2 years since the discharge are usually necessary for approval) and that your credit has improved since that point. Therefore, your credit report will be pulled and your credit history examined. If you had a bankruptcy, your credit needs to be impeccable from that moment on and it is a good idea to provide a written explanation of the reasons for the bankruptcy (special situations that leaded to it).

Mortgage Loans For Previously Purchased Properties

If you have purchased a property already you will be required to show the title deed but if you have made arrangements for the purchase and already signed a sales contract which has not been perfected yet because you need to obtain the mortgage loan first, you will need to show a copy of the sales contract signed both by the buyer and the seller in order to prove that the property's ownership will be transferred to you.

General Requirements

Regardless of special situations like the above, there are certain documentation that you will always need to get approved for your mortgage loan: pay stubs from your employment or a certificate prepared by your employer stating that you work for them and are legally registered, if you are self employed, you will need proof of income that can consist on personal or corporate tax returns (if you run a business).

You may also be required to present current balances and other information on outstanding debt like student loans, personal unsecured loans, credit cards, lines of credit, mortgages and home equity loans.

A Loan On Half A House?

What if your client only owns half the house? And the other owner can't sign can you get them a loan?

Nancy was in just that bind. She inherited of her aunt's house - her brother inherited the other half. She needed to borrow money right away for repairs to the house- the problem was that her brother was in the middle of a nasty divorce, and couldn't sign anything.

This is where a partial ownership loan, a loan secured by one part owner's interest only, comes into play. (Partial ownership loans are also referred to as partial interest loans, or partner loans.) With a partial ownership loan, the lender makes a loan to one of the owners, secured only by their interest in the property. The other owners don't sign anything, and the only collateral the lender has is the signing borrower's partial interest in the property. Nancy was able to borrow against her share of the property, without needing the brother's signature or being impacted by his problems. (This can also be useful in cases where the other owner simply refuses to sign.)

What if the lender forecloses and acquires the partial interest in the property? Do they become partners with the other property owner? Yes. That's why it's an unusual program. Partial interest loans are made on any undivided interest in real property, so it could be a one fourth interest, a one fifth interest, or even a smaller percentage of ownership. (Married persons cannot use this program to borrow against community property without the spouse's signature.)

How can a lender do this? The underwriting criteria that regulates most capital sources like mortgage bankers, insured depository institutions, and credit unions would restrict them from making partial ownership loans. On a similar note, mortgage brokers who use private investor funds are restricted from placing their investor's funds into these loans. Privately held portfolio lenders are the source for these. These lenders have and loan their own funds and must originate, service and hold the loans until they're repaid in full.

The other challenge in this type of lending is title insurance. It's often difficult or impossible to obtain traditional title insurance for these loans, so lenders sometimes have to self insure, meaning they handle title problems on their own.

While you won't run across the need for this program every day, when you do, it can be a real lifesaver for your client. Partial ownership loans often lead to another loan when matters relating to the other property owner(s) are settled. Sometimes loans are made to one part owner, only to have the other part owner contact the same broker to obtain their own loan against their interest in the property.

How else can partial ownership loans be used? How about investment or business partners who may own a share of a property and need to borrow when the other partners don't? Another situation occurs when one of several heirs lives in the property and the other non-occupying heirs don't want to encumber their share of the property to make improvements or upgrades.

7 Car Insurance Alberta Tips For a First Time Driver

If you have a new car or are a first time driver, then we have a couple of car insurance Alberta tips for you. Owning your first car is definitely an exciting experience, but paying for it is certainly not. However, since you have to, this doesn't mean that you must pay a high premium. We will show you a few ways that you can reduce your monthly fees and enjoy your new ride for less.

One of the obvious tips is to simply shop around. All because your dad or friends get their insurance with a specific company, that means that you should too. There are many online websites which actually compare rates and packages of different companies so you can use this as a guideline to find a good company to get insured with.

If you purchase or apply for your premium online, you can get up to a 10% discount. Most companies offer this discount so you can save money by just using the internet! Another good way is to go through the Pass Plus exam after you've gotten your driving license. Many companies offer discounts for drivers who do Pass Plus, but not all do.

Another good idea is to buy a cheap first car that has a small engine. This can help you to get a lot of savings if you are a young driver as you will fall into a low insurance group. This can enable you to build up even more points once you're cautious on the road and have a good no claims bonus.

Many people are often tempted to modify their vehicles, but if you want to have a low rate, then you should try not to. The more modifications you have, the higher your rates will be. If you really want to do a few modifications, you should discuss this with an agent so that they can advise you on how much extra each one will cost. There are even some that don't change your rates, so make sure to find out if this is important to you.

Do you know that where you put your car to park can affect your rates? It is a fact that if you park in a closed garage or in a driveway that you will reduce it. However, if you have to park on the street, this will adversely increase how much you have to pay.

Another method of reducing how much you pay is to simply drive less. When you apply, the agent will ask you how many miles do you expect to drive per year. You should try to minimize how much you actually use your vehicle so that you have a low mileage. This can help you to get a reduced rate but make sure to estimate accurately and not lie.

Those were just a few guidelines for a new driver so that they can have much lower car insurance Alberta rates. Even though young drivers have to pay more than older and more experienced drivers, these tips can definitely help them to manage the extra expense.

Depending on how you intend on making money with real estate, you may need to be very selective about what properties you decide to purchase. You shouldn't rely on a picture when you are choosing property. You also shouldn't rely on what someone tells you about any property. When it is all said and done, once you have purchased property under the assumption that there is nothing wrong with it, only to find out later that there is something wrong with it, you are the one that is responsible for making the necessary repairs to bring that piece of real estate up to code. Go to your local county building and dig up the records for any property you want to buy. Find any and all disclosure agreements on the property and inspect them so you can learn about the true condition of any property you want to purchase. Protect yourself and make sure that any property you purchase meets or exceeds your expectations.

Another way to make investing in real estate much easier for you is to have a partner or a property agent help you with your search for investment property. They can help you find property that may not be available right away but will be placed on the market soon. They can put you in contact with other professionals that can help you with your property. If you need to find contractors for inspection, renovations and even relisting they can provide those extra resources for you. Keep in mind that depending on what your specific needs are, it may take you a bit of time to find everything you need. Don't let the searching process make you lose sight of your goals. Remember, in order to make money, sometimes you have to be willing to make smart investments with it. Relax and use your first experience as a learning one and each experience that follows as a foundation for the next. Brush up on the laws and regulations regarding property in your state, that way you know your rights. This will also protect your interest and your future investments.

Updated South Dakota Divorce Records Free Online

A divorce is not something that anybody wants to experience. When we get married, we all like to believe that it would last for a lifetime. A divorce is simply a difficult process that produces nothing but pain, bitterness, and tears. It's also a time-consuming process that can drain your pockets and wallets. Much as we do not want divorce in our society, it is something that's very real in this modern world we move in. As a testament to this, all 50 U.S. states have their own laws, rules, and requirements for accessing public records, like divorce records. This is to help ex-husband and wives who want to obtain copies of their marriage dissolution dossiers for one reason or another. A divorce record is helpful in establishing a status when applying for government loans, or for checking out a new partner's background. As always, when filing a request, the first thing to find out is where the divorce was granted. This is because, as mentioned earlier, each state has its own laws and rules. When making a request in The Mount Rushmore State, for example, the proper office to go to when trying to obtain South Dakota Divorce Records is the Vital Statistics Office.

All divorce records filed beginning July 1905 up to the present days are made available by the Vital Statistics Office. Before you can get one, though, you'll need to patiently adhere to requirements and follow rules. Your application form should be duly filled including the full names of the divorced couple, as well as where and when the dissolution of marriage was granted. Likewise, you are expected to submit a copy of your photo ID. And if you want to get a certified copy of States Divorce Records, you'll have to prove your eligibility by indicating your relationship with the divorced couple (if you are not one of the two).

Each copy that you get from the Vital Statistics Office has a corresponding fee of . In other words, every time you make a request, you'll pay the said fee. You can also choose to avail of their expedited processing offer, but you'll have to add .50 to the fee. However, if the record you need is not available through the Vital Statistics Office, you are to proceed to the Clerk of Courts of the county where the marriage was dissolved. The fee for each record varies from one state to another.

In accordance to South Dakota laws, you will not be granted access to certified copies of South Dakota divorce records if you are not eligible for such. Only the ex-married couple and their current spouses, grandparents, child or children, siblings, and their legal representatives can get a certified copy of the divorce record. If you do not fall into any of the eligible categories, you will only be handed an informational copy, which is not valid as a legal proof of ID.

Since you may be required to wait for a number of days or some weeks before getting your request, filing your request with state or county offices can be quite tedious and time-consuming. If this is not to your liking, then you should consider working with independent online record providers. These online searchers guarantee you a fast and more efficient process. You don't have to sit around and hope and mope while waiting for the records you need. They'll give it to you after only a couple of minutes!

What makes these independent online record providers the most practical option is that their database can be accessed anytime. No need to transfer from one office to another. Additionally, their database is quite comprehensive, so you're sure to find practically all States Divorce Records you have to get your hands on. The best thing about this is that you don't have to pay for every record you get; you only need to pay a minimal fee once once, not twice or thrice! And in return for this, you'll be able to access their database anytime you want to; for any public record you need! Isn't that simply swell?
