How non-EU managers can access Europe without being licensed under AIFMD

Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Andreas Wölfl, the former Head of Austrian Indices at the Vienna Stock Exchange, set up the Argentarius Group in 2004 by securitising an offshore hedge fund into a transferable security. Argentarius is offering hedge funds, asset managers, family offices, managers of structured UCITS funds access to Malta’s new and robust Securitisation Act, which has made Malta a jurisdiction of excellence for securitisation transactions and the creation of exchange traded instruments (ETIs). The innovative cell companies in Malta’s Securitisation Act are protected against default & credit risk from both issuer & management company. The combination of Malta’s Securitisation Act and Securitisation Cell Regulations makes Malta a unique legal framework that affords the highest level of investor protection. Argentarius’ securitisation solutions are regulated by the ECB and therefore out of the scope of AIFMD. There is also no limitation on asset classes. This solution also stands out with an impressive speed to market (4-6 weeks until listing of ETI) and its low cost structure that is viable also for smaller issues (starting at EUR 5m). As a listing agent for the European Wholesale Securities Market (EWSM) in Malta, Argentarius manages listings under both the Luxembourg and Malta securitisation acts with instruments that are traded on either the Deutsche Börse in Frankfurt (FWB) or the EWSM in Malta. With an exchange listed ETI, non-EU managers can access Europe without being licensed under AIFMD. But also AIFM-licensed managers set up ETIs with Argentarius to take advantage of the low cost structure versus a fund vehicles and the speed to market. As of May 2015, Argentarius has issued 50 ETIs with combined value of EUR 1bn. Argentarius specialises in the securitisation of alternative investments into ETIs – Exchange Traded Instruments that are completely free of issuer risk and linked to and backed by an underlying asset or basket of assets— for hedge funds, asset managers, family offices, managers of structured UCITS funds and custodians for the fund industry. An Exchange Traded Instrument (ETI) combines the advantages of mutual funds (the collateral by assets in a case of insolvency) with the flexibility in the design of a certificate (derivative security issued by a bank). ETIs are always feeders into the underlying assets and have no derivative or leverage embedded. An ETI is a “pass through” instrument that delivers the delta one performance of the underlying asset(s). New investment products can be launched quickly (4 weeks) whilst avoiding traditional high cost structures and maintaining tax neutrality. A securitisation special purpose vehicle (SPV), As defined by the Act cannot be considered a collective investment scheme or be regulated by any other Act other than the Securitisation Act of Malta.Under the Act a securitisation special purpose vehicle can issue securities under the laws of any other jurisdiction enabling Argentarius to issue ETIs on global stock exchanges to suit our clients requirements. NO CREDIT RISK ETIs are issued by a securitisation special purpose vehicle (SPV) established under the Securitisation Act in Malta or Luxembourg which sets out the conditions which are imposed on the issuer and any service providers and offers full investor protection against the credit risk of both the issuer and the management company. ETIs issued on a stock exchange can be purchased by suitable investors through their broker relationships so the sales process is transparent and simple for all parties. UNRESTRICTED CHOICE OF ASSET CLASSES ETIs have no restrictions on asset classes; any alternative investments are eligible for a securitisation transaction. Non-EU hedge funds can also be securitizied for listing on an EU stock exchange. Any alternative asset class can be repackaged into an UCITS eligible asset. ETIs also allow to convert non bankable assets into transferable securities ready for deposit with a custodian. Argentarius also offers private label solutions for packaged retail investment products (PRIPs). REGULATION ETIs issued by a securitisation special purpose vehicle (SPV) under ECB regulation 24/2009/ECB are not AIFs and are regulated by the Securitisation Act in the country of the issuer (Malta or Luxembourg). ETIs listed on the European Wholesale Securities Market (EWSM) an EU regulated market are UCITS eligible assets issued with an approved prospectus suitable for a public offering within the EU. ETIs issued on the open market at the Deutsche Börse in Frankfurt are suitable for promotion to professional investors as defined in Annexe II of MiFID. In certain cases an ETI issued on the Deutsche Börse can have an approved prospectus suitable for a public offering to retail investors within the EU.

Gibraltar Stock Exchange: Europe’s most competitive and fastest gateway solution for non EU ..

Gibraltar Stock Exchange: Europe’s most competitive and fastest gateway solution for non EU managers, corporates and insurers The Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX) is Europe’s newest stock exchange. With a focus on reputation, regulation and speed to market, GSX’s unique listing solutions can offer: A European gateway solution for non-EU and EU alternative fund managers using securitization providing promotion rights, prospectus passporting and UCITS eligibility Bond issues for SMEs at competitive rates Reinsurance solutions using Securitization (ILS, Cat-bonds) With the EU representing 25% of global wealth, many global fund managers, corporates and even insurers realize it’s an important capital pool and too large to ignore. But, many non-EU managers, particularly in Asia and the US, see AIFMD as a problem. Stats tell you that 90% are relying on reverse solicitation. That may not be a long-term solution, but it’s what people are doing. By listing a fund on GSX or creating a securitization solution with a GSX member firm could be considered as dipping your toe into the European swimming pool without actually making that big decision (and big investment) about whether to come onshore. Gibraltar is part of the EU and fully compliant with EU law and directives. The jurisdiction has been enjoying a continuous GDP growth of 10% p.a. for many years. GSX is the newest building block in Gibraltar’s strong and diversified financial services industry. Hear Nick Cowan and Phil Young speak about: Listing on the Gibraltar Stock Exchange: How does it work? Case study 1: Non-EU fund manager seeking EU access using a securitization solution Case study 2: SME seeking debt finance Case study 3: Reinsurer securitisation risk solution Nick Cowan, Managing Director of GSX, has over 30 years investment industry experience in Developed and Emerging Markets including four years as the Global Head of Equity Trading followed by five years as the Global Head of Equities for ING Barings, serving as a Member of the Executive Committee,. He was responsible for 2,500 employees in 43 countries, including 40 stock exchange memberships as well as numerous restructurings, turnarounds, acquisitions and divestments. Marketing Director Philip Young has over 26 years investment industry experience. Mr Young began his career in investment banking before moving to investment management where he spent 5 years with a start-up hedge fund and 5 years with a principal emerging market private equity firm. Mr Young is a CFA Charterholder.

Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union
 
26:11
The Economic and Monetary Union is an umbrella term for the group of policies aimed at converging the economies of all member states of the European Union at three stages. Both the 19 eurozone states and the 9 non-euro states are EMU members. A Member State however needs to comply and be a part of the "third EMU stage", before being able to adopt the euro currency; and as such the "third EMU stage" has also become largely synonymous with the eurozone. All Member States of the European Union, except Denmark and the United Kingdom, have committed themselves by treaty to join the "third EMU stage". The Copenhagen criteria is the current set of conditions of entry for new states wanting to join the EU. It contains the requirements that need to be fulfilled and the time framework within which this must be done, in order for a country to join the monetary union. An important element of this, is a participation for minimum two years in the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, in which candidate currencies demonstrate economic convergence by maintaining limited deviation from their target rate against the euro.

Hedge fund
 
01:06:15
A hedge fund is a pooled investment vehicle administered by a professional management firm, and often structured as a limited partnership, limited liability company, or similar vehicle. Hedge funds are generally distinct from mutual funds as their use of leverage is not capped by regulators and from private equity funds as the majority of hedge funds invest in relatively liquid assets. Hedge funds invest in a diverse range of markets and use a wide variety of investment styles and financial instruments. The name "hedge fund" refers to the hedging techniques traditionally used by hedge funds, but hedge funds today do not necessarily hedge. Hedge funds are made available only to certain sophisticated or accredited investors and cannot be offered or sold to the general public. As such, they generally avoid direct regulatory oversight, bypass licensing requirements applicable to investment companies, and operate with greater flexibility than mutual funds and other investment funds. Hedge funds have existed for many decades, but have become increasingly popular in recent years, growing to be one of the world's major investment vehicles and sources of capital. Hedge funds are most often open-ended and allow additions or withdrawals by their investors (generally on a monthly or quarterly basis). A hedge fund's value is calculated as a share of the fund's net asset value, meaning that increases and decreases in the value of the fund's investment assets (and fund expenses) are directly reflected in the amount an investor can later withdraw.

An influential model within Europe, the Commonwealth and as an international standard setter, UK law has always given people broad freedom to design the internal company rules, so long as the mandatory minimum rights of investors under its legislation are complied with. Company law, or corporate law, can be broken down into two main fields. Corporate governance in the UK mediates the rights and duties among shareholders, employees, creditors and directors. Since the board of directors habitually possesses the power to manage the business under a company constitution, a central theme is what mechanisms exist to ensure directors' accountability. UK law is "shareholder friendly" in that shareholders, to the exclusion of employees, typically exercise sole voting rights in the general meeting. The general meeting holds a series of minimum rights to change the company constitution, issue resolutions and remove members of the board. In turn, directors owe a set of duties to their companies. Directors must carry out their responsibilities with competence, in good faith and undivided loyalty to the enterprise. If the mechanisms of voting do not prove enough, particularly for minority shareholders, directors' duties and other member rights may be vindicated in court. Of central importance in public and listed companies is the securities market, typified by the London Stock Exchange. Through the Takeover Code the UK strongly protects the right of shareholders to be treated equally and freely trade their shares. Corporate finance concerns the two money raising options for limited companies. Equity finance involves the traditional method of issuing shares to build up a company's capital. Shares can contain any rights the company and purchaser wish to contract for, but generally grant the right to participate in dividends after a company earns profits and the right to vote in company affairs.

Our Miss Brooks: Department Store Contest / Magic Christmas Tree / Babysitting on New Year's Eve
 
01:28:47
Our Miss Brooks is an American situation comedy starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952--56), it became one of the medium's earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for big screen in the film of the same name. Connie (Constance) Brooks (Eve Arden), an English teacher at fictional Madison High School. Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), blustery, gruff, crooked and unsympathetic Madison High principal, a near-constant pain to his faculty and students. (Conklin was played by Joseph Forte in the show's first episode; Gordon succeeded him for the rest of the series' run.) Occasionally Conklin would rig competitions at the school--such as that for prom queen--so that his daughter Harriet would win. Walter Denton (Richard Crenna, billed at the time as Dick Crenna), a Madison High student, well-intentioned and clumsy, with a nasally high, cracking voice, often driving Miss Brooks (his self-professed favorite teacher) to school in a broken-down jalopy. Miss Brooks' references to her own usually-in-the-shop car became one of the show's running gags. Philip Boynton (Jeff Chandler on radio, billed sometimes under his birth name Ira Grossel); Robert Rockwell on both radio and television), Madison High biology teacher, the shy and often clueless object of Miss Brooks' affections. Margaret Davis (Jane Morgan), Miss Brooks' absentminded landlady, whose two trademarks are a cat named Minerva, and a penchant for whipping up exotic and often inedible breakfasts. Harriet Conklin (Gloria McMillan), Madison High student and daughter of principal Conklin. A sometime love interest for Walter Denton, Harriet was honest and guileless with none of her father's malevolence and dishonesty. Stretch (Fabian) Snodgrass (Leonard Smith), dull-witted Madison High athletic star and Walter's best friend. Daisy Enright (Mary Jane Croft), Madison High English teacher, and a scheming professional and romantic rival to Miss Brooks. Jacques Monet (Gerald Mohr), a French teacher. Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part, but as he told historian Gerald Nachman many years later, he realized Booth was too focused on the underpaid downside of public school teaching at the time to have fun with the role. Lucille Ball was believed to have been the next choice, but she was already committed to My Favorite Husband and didn't audition. Chairman Bill Paley, who was friendly with Arden, persuaded her to audition for the part. With a slightly rewritten audition script--Osgood Conklin, for example, was originally written as a school board president but was now written as the incoming new Madison principal--Arden agreed to give the newly-revamped show a try. Produced by Larry Berns and written by director Al Lewis, Our Miss Brooks premiered on July 19, 1948. According to radio critic John Crosby, her lines were very "feline" in dialogue scenes with principal Conklin and would-be boyfriend Boynton, with sharp, witty comebacks. The interplay between the cast--blustery Conklin, nebbishy Denton, accommodating Harriet, absentminded Mrs. Davis, clueless Boynton, scheming Miss Enright--also received positive reviews. Arden won a radio listeners' poll by Radio Mirror magazine as the top ranking comedienne of 1948-49, receiving her award at the end of an Our Miss Brooks broadcast that March. "I'm certainly going to try in the coming months to merit the honor you've bestowed upon me, because I understand that if I win this two years in a row, I get to keep Mr. Boynton," she joked. But she was also a hit with the critics; a winter 1949 poll of newspaper and magazine radio editors taken by Motion Picture Daily named her the year's best radio comedienne. For its entire radio life, the show was sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive-Peet, promoting Palmolive soap, Lustre Creme shampoo and Toni hair care products. The radio series continued until 1957, a year after its television life ended. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Miss_Brooks

However, fishing has severely disturbed the complex ecosystems of the world’s oceans. Since global warming spares no one, each person is responsible to do their best in awakening noble qualities in themselves; that is to adopt an organic vegan diet, which not only benefits our health so that we can keep diseases away but also helps strike a balance between agriculture and the environment. The Supreme Master said, “If we wish to live healthily and happily ourselves, we should let others live likewise. This is the best guideline.” ★★★★★★★ 二○○九年五月九日,清海無上師受邀參加非洲多哥洛美所舉辦的《有機純素能拯救地球》全球暖化研討會。會中無上師提醒大眾,海洋扮演調節全球氣候的主要角色,捕魚已嚴重擾亂全球海洋的複雜生態系統。全球暖化無人能倖免,因此人人都有責任喚醒自己的高貴品質,採行有機純素。有機純素不但能使身體健康、遠離疾病,更有助於使農業和環境兩者取得平衡。師父說:「若我們希望自己生活健康、快樂,應該讓他人也如此。這是最好的指導方針!」 http://edenrules.com/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=869&product_id=589
Our Miss Brooks: The Auction / Baseball Uniforms / Free TV from Sherry's
 
01:29:55
Our Miss Brooks is an American situation comedy starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952--56), it became one of the medium's earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for big screen in the film of the same name. Connie (Constance) Brooks (Eve Arden), an English teacher at fictional Madison High School. Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), blustery, gruff, crooked and unsympathetic Madison High principal, a near-constant pain to his faculty and students. (Conklin was played by Joseph Forte in the show's first episode; Gordon succeeded him for the rest of the series' run.) Occasionally Conklin would rig competitions at the school--such as that for prom queen--so that his daughter Harriet would win. Walter Denton (Richard Crenna, billed at the time as Dick Crenna), a Madison High student, well-intentioned and clumsy, with a nasally high, cracking voice, often driving Miss Brooks (his self-professed favorite teacher) to school in a broken-down jalopy. Miss Brooks' references to her own usually-in-the-shop car became one of the show's running gags. Philip Boynton (Jeff Chandler on radio, billed sometimes under his birth name Ira Grossel); Robert Rockwell on both radio and television), Madison High biology teacher, the shy and often clueless object of Miss Brooks' affections. Margaret Davis (Jane Morgan), Miss Brooks' absentminded landlady, whose two trademarks are a cat named Minerva, and a penchant for whipping up exotic and often inedible breakfasts. Harriet Conklin (Gloria McMillan), Madison High student and daughter of principal Conklin. A sometime love interest for Walter Denton, Harriet was honest and guileless with none of her father's malevolence and dishonesty. Stretch (Fabian) Snodgrass (Leonard Smith), dull-witted Madison High athletic star and Walter's best friend. Daisy Enright (Mary Jane Croft), Madison High English teacher, and a scheming professional and romantic rival to Miss Brooks. Jacques Monet (Gerald Mohr), a French teacher.

Calling All Cars: Invitation to Murder / Bank Bandits and Bullets / Burglar Charges Collect

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is the police department of the city of Los Angeles, California. The LAPD has been copiously fictionalized in numerous movies, novels and television shows throughout its history. The department has also been associated with a number of controversies, mainly concerned with racial animosity, police brutality and police corruption. The radio show Calling All Cars hired LAPD radio dispacher Jesse Rosenquist to be the voice of the dispatcher. Rosenquist was already famous because home radios could tune into early police radio frequencies. As the first police radio dispatcher presented to the public ear, his was the voice that actors went to when called upon for a radio dispatcher role. The iconic television series Dragnet, with LAPD Detective Joe Friday as the primary character, was the first major media representation of the department. Real LAPD operations inspired Jack Webb to create the series and close cooperation with department officers let him make it as realistic as possible, including authentic police equipment and sound recording on-site at the police station. Due to Dragnet's popularity, LAPD Chief Parker "became, after J. Edgar Hoover, the most well known and respected law enforcement official in the nation". In the 1960s, when the LAPD under Chief Thomas Reddin expanded its community relations division and began efforts to reach out to the African-American community, Dragnet followed suit with more emphasis on internal affairs and community policing than solving crimes, the show's previous mainstay. Several prominent representations of the LAPD and its officers in television and film include Adam-12, Blue Streak, Blue Thunder, Boomtown, The Closer, Colors, Crash, Columbo, Dark Blue, Die Hard, End of Watch, Heat, Hollywood Homicide, Hunter, Internal Affairs, Jackie Brown, L.A. Confidential, Lakeview Terrace, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Life, Numb3rs, The Shield, Southland, Speed, Street Kings, SWAT, Training Day and the Lethal Weapon, Rush Hour and Terminator film series. The LAPD is also featured in the video games Midnight Club II, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, L.A. Noire and Call of Juarez: The Cartel. The LAPD has also been the subject of numerous novels. Elizabeth Linington used the department as her backdrop in three different series written under three different names, perhaps the most popular being those novel featuring Det. Lt. Luis Mendoza, who was introduced in the Edgar-nominated Case Pending. Joseph Wambaugh, the son of a Pittsburgh policeman, spent fourteen years in the department, using his background to write novels with authentic fictional depictions of life in the LAPD. Wambaugh also created the Emmy-winning TV anthology series Police Story. Wambaugh was also a major influence on James Ellroy, who wrote several novels about the Department set during the 1940s and 1950s, the most famous of which are probably The Black Dahlia, fictionalizing the LAPD's most famous "cold case", and L.A. Confidential, which was made into a film of the same name. Both the novel and the film chronicled mass-murder and corruption inside and outside the force during the Parker era. Critic Roger Ebert indicates that the film's characters (from the 1950s) "represent the choices ahead for the LAPD": assisting Hollywood limelight, aggressive policing with relaxed ethics, and a "straight arrow" approach. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAPD
