From Tech Start-up to Investment Banker: Jan Metzger at TEDxHKUST
Jan Metzger is a Hong Kong based investment banker at an European investment bank. He is the Head of TMT Investment Banking for Asia Pacific. Prior to becoming a banker, Mr. Metzger worked as a Management Consultant helping multinational companies improve their operations. Prior to that, Mr. Metzger worked in the software industry managing a software development team. As you can tell, Mr. Metzger has worn multiple hats in his life. What interests us most, however, is his journey until he reached his zenith. While most of us think of landing that investment banking job, making money and then maybe starting our own thing -- Mr.Metzger did it the other way around. Confused? So are we. Hopefully, 9th March can provide some clarity. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

What is a Bulge Bracket?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Bulge Bracket” The "bulge bracket" is a slang term to describe the largest and most profitable multi-national investment banks in the world whose banking clients are normally huge institutions, corporations, and governments. The tombstone - an advertisement of a new issue - usually has the bulge bracket listed as the first group. These bulge bracket investment banks typically offer both financing and advisory banking services, in addition to market making, sales, and research for a large range of financial products like credit, equities, commodities and derivatives. Bulge bracket banks also tend to be very involved in creating novel financial products like mortgage backed securities, carbon emission trading, credit default swaps, and insurance products. The bulge bracket investment banks are normally primary dealers in U.S. treasuries. The name "bulge bracket" originates from the manner in which investment banks are listed on the public notification of a financial deal or transaction - or the "tombstone." The bookrunning manager, or bank with control of security allocation to investors, is listed above all others and on the prospectus cover. The printing size of the font for this bank is larger than the others and tends to "bulge" out. Some debate exists over which banks are part of the bulge bracket since there are no universally recognized criteria for membership in the group. Some banks that are commonly recognized as being a part of the bulge bracket are: Goldman Sachs, Barclays Capital, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, and UBS.

Britain applied to join multinational investment bank created by China
Britain has applied to join a major multinational investment bank created by China triggering criticism from the United States. Officials in London say the move has been in line with Britain’s national interests. They say they don’t expect the decision to join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, A-I-I-B, to damage ties with the US. Washington says London decided to join the A-I-I-B without any consultation. It also says the move shows Britain is increasingly accommodating to China. Meanwhile, Beijing has welcomed London’s decision to join the bank. The A-I-I-B, that will be launched in October, is seen as an emerging rival to powerful institutions like the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank. China and 20 other countries have so far joined the financial institution while the US, Japan, South Korea and some other countries have declined to do so.

How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World: Bank, Stock, Finance, Money
The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is an American multinational finance company that engages in global investment banking, investment management, securities, and other financial services including asset management, mergers and acquisitions advice, prime brokerage, and securities underwriting services. It also sponsors private equity funds, is a market maker, and is a primary dealer in the United States Treasury security market. Goldman Sachs also owns GS Bank USA, a direct bank. Goldman Sachs was founded in 1869 and is headquartered at 200 West Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City, with additional offices in other international financial centers.[3] Due to its involvement in securitization during the subprime mortgage crisis, Goldman Sachs suffered during the 2007-2008 financial crisis,[4][5] and received a $10 billion investment from the United States Department of the Treasury as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, a financial bailout created by the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. The investment was made in November 2008 and was repaid in June 2009.[6][7] The list of former employees of Goldman Sachs who moved on to government positions includes former U.S. Secretaries of the Treasury Robert Rubin and Henry Paulson; current United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin; current chief economic advisor Gary Cohn; European Central Bank President Mario Draghi; former Bank of Canada Governor and current Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney and the current Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull. In addition, former Goldman employees have headed the New York Stock Exchange, the World Bank, and major banks such as Citigroup and Merrill Lynch. On November 16, 1981, the firm acquired J. Aron & Company, a commodities trading firm which merged with the Fixed Income division to become known as Fixed Income, Currencies, and Commodities. J. Aron was a player in the coffee and gold markets, and the current CEO of Goldman, Lloyd Blankfein, joined the firm as a result of this merger. In 1985 it underwrote the public offering of the real estate investment trust that owned Rockefeller Center, then the largest REIT offering in history. In accordance with the beginning of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the firm also became involved in facilitating the global privatization movement by advising companies that were spinning off from their parent governments. In 1986, the firm formed Goldman Sachs Asset Management, which manages the majority of its mutual funds and hedge funds today. In the same year, the firm also underwrote the IPO of Microsoft, advised General Electric on its acquisition of RCA and joined the London and Tokyo stock exchanges. 1986 also was the year when Goldman became the first United States bank to rank in the top 10 of mergers and acquisitions in the United Kingdom. During the 1980s the firm became the first bank to distribute its investment research electronically and created the first public offering of original issue deep-discount bond. Robert Rubin and Stephen Friedman assumed the Co-Senior Partnership in 1990 and pledged to focus on globalization of the firm and strengthening the Merger & Acquisition and Trading business lines. During their reign, the firm introduced paperless trading to the New York Stock Exchange and lead-managed the first-ever global debt offering by a U.S. corporation. It also launched the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) and opened a Beijing office in 1994. Also in 1994, Jon Corzine assumed leadership of the firm as CEO, following the departure of Rubin and Friedman.[19] Another momentous event in Goldman's history was the Mexican bailout of 1995. Rubin drew criticism in Congress for using a Treasury Department account under his personal control to distribute $20 billion to bail out Mexican bonds, of which Goldman was a key distributor.[20] On November 22, 1994, the Mexican Bolsa stock market had admitted Goldman Sachs and one other firm to operate on that market.[21] The 1994 economic crisis in Mexico threatened to wipe out the value of Mexico's bonds held by Goldman Sachs. In 1994, Goldman financed Rockefeller Center in a deal that allowed it to take an ownership interest[22] in 1996, and sold Rockefeller Center to Tishman Speyer in 2000.[23] In April 1997, Goldman was lead underwriter of the Yahoo! IPO. In 1998 it was the co-lead manager of the 2 trillion yen NTT DoCoMo IPO.[24] In 1999, Goldman acquired Hull Trading Company, one of the world's premier market-making firms, for $531 million. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldman_Sachs Image By Jdarsie11 (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Why I Left Goldman Sachs: Greg Smith on Business Ethics & the Financial Services Company (2013)
A March 2012 resignation letter from the former head of Goldman Sachs US equity derivatives business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) was printed as an op-ed in The New York Times. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1455527475/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1455527475&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=8eb9c80fa4adb6e52c473bdd005d78ef In it, Smith attacked the company's CEO and president for losing the company's culture, which he described as "the secret sauce that made this place great and allowed us to earn our clients' trust for 143 years". Smith said that advising clients "to do what I believe is right for them" was becoming increasingly unpopular. Instead there was a "toxic and destructive" environment in which "the interests of the client continue to be sidelined", senior management described clients as "muppets" and colleagues callously talked about "ripping their clients off". In reply, Goldman Sachs said that "we will only be successful if our clients are successful", claiming "this fundamental truth lies at the heart of how we conduct ourselves" and that "we don't think [Smith's comments] reflect the way we run our business." Later that year, Smith published a book titled Why I left Goldman Sachs. Goldman is being criticized for its involvement in the 2010 European sovereign debt crisis. Goldman Sachs is reported to have systematically helped the Greek government mask the true facts concerning its national debt between the years 1998 and 2009.[91] In September 2009, Goldman Sachs, among others, created a special credit default swap (CDS) index to cover the high risk of Greece's national debt.[92] The interest-rates of Greek national bonds have soared to a very high level, leading the Greek economy very close to bankruptcy in March and May 2010 and again in June 2011.[93] Lucas Papademos, Greece's former prime minister, ran the Central Bank of Greece at the time of the controversial derivates deals with Goldman Sachs that enabled Greece to hide the size of its debt.[94] Petros Christodoulou, General Manager of the Public Debt Management Agency of Greece is a former employee of Goldman Sachs.[94] Mario Monti, Italy's former prime minister and finance minister, who headed the new government that took over after Berlusconi's resignation, is an international adviser to Goldman Sachs.[94] So is Otmar Issing, former board member of the Bundesbank and the Executive Board of the European Bank.[94] Mario Draghi, the new head of the European Central Bank, is the former managing director of Goldman Sachs International.[94] António Borges, Head of the European Department of the International Monetary Fund in 2010-2011 and responsible for most of enterprise privatizations in Portugal since 2011, is the former Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs International.[94] Carlos Moedas, a former Goldman Sachs employee, is the current Secretary of State to the Prime Minister of Portugal and Director of ESAME, the agency created to monitor and control the implementation of the structural reforms agreed by the governent of Portugal and the troika composed of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Peter Sutherland, former Attorney General of Ireland is a non-executive director of Goldman Sachs International. These ties between Goldman Sachs and European leaders are an ongoing source of controversy.[94] The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is an American multinational investment banking firm that engages in global investment banking, securities, investment management, and other financial services primarily with institutional clients. Goldman Sachs was founded in 1869 and is headquartered at 200 West Street in the Lower Manhattan area of New York City, with additional offices in international financial centers. The firm provides mergers and acquisitions advice, underwriting services, asset management, and prime brokerage to its clients, which include corporations, governments and individuals. The firm also engages in market making and private equity deals, and is a primary dealer in the United States Treasury security market. It is recognized as one of the premier investment banks in the world,[3][4] but has sparked a great deal of controversy over its alleged improper practices, especially since the 2007--2012 global financial crisis. Former Goldman executives who moved on to government positions include: Robert Rubin and Henry Paulson who served as United States Secretary of the Treasury under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, respectively; Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank; Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada 2008--13 and Governor of the Bank of England from July 2013. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Smith_(businessman)

First Departure by a Top-Tier Global Investment Bank From China's Securities Segment?
JPMorgan Chase & Co is in talks to sell out of a Chinese securities joint venture with First Capital Securities Co Ltd in what would be the first departure by a top-tier global investment bank from China's securities segment. Wall Street banks like JPMorgan hold only minority stakes in such ventures. The resulting lack of control and limited contribution to total revenue have brought banks frustration at a time when domestic competition has become acute. Almost all leading investment banks, including Goldman Sachs Group Inc, UBS Group AG, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank AG and Credit Suisse Group AG have securities ventures with local firms. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/DHgr3KyrUvc/us-first-cap-secs-jpmorgan-idUSKCN12K09Q http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

JP Morgan, Ford boycott Riyadh investment conference
An American multinational investment bank and an auto-making giant join a chorus of firms and news agencies boycotting an investment conference in Saudi Arabia. JP Morgan Chase and Ford Motor Company did not say why they decided not to attend the three-day event scheduled to start on October 23rd in Riyadh. The World Bank, Virgin Group as well as major media outlets such as the New York Times and CNN have withdrawn from the event. They have made the decision to protest against the disappearance of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey. This has been described as a major blow to the Kingdom's economic plans. The Future Investment Initiative conference is hosted by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and is part of his Vision 2030 plan to end the country's dependence on oil.

All About the Commercial Loan Process - Real Estate Investment Tips
For an experienced SF Bay Area real estate agent visit http://iLiveInTheBayArea.com Like me on Facebook: http://fb.com/iLiveInTheBayArea Thumbs up, favorite, share, subscribe and make a comment! Most people who are ready to invest in commercial real estate are usually somewhat familiar with the home loan process. That's commonly because they might have bought a home or two in the last few years and they remember the mounds of paperwork that go with it. Although there are a select few similarities, getting a loan for a commercial property is a bit different. When you get a commercial loan for investment you have to qualify has a borrower, just like a home loan. However, there is one huge key difference. A residential appraiser values the property primarily based on other sold comparables. The primary key difference is that even though comparables are considered with a commercial appraisal, a commercial property is valued primarily off of the income it produces. This income property makes $150k NOI. We know that based on a cap rate formula we will make 7.5% on our money with no loan on the property. However, we plan on having a loan...the question is will the PROPERTY qualify? We check the rates and find out we can get a loan for 70% of the value at 7% interest, amortized over 25 years. We'll have an annual debt service of just about $119k. This brings our cash flow to just a bit over $31k/year giving us a 5.21% cash on cash return rate. The key difference you must be aware of is the Debt Coverage Ratio, or DCR. The DCR is basically a calculation of how much of your yearly mortgage payment is covered. Here's the thing about investments...they don't always work out perfectly, and banks know this. So for the bank to protect itself, it might set a HIGHER DCR for you to achieve. This way, if something happens and your income property isn't making as much money as you thought, the bank is still covered. We have an income of $150k before deducting about $119k/year for mortgage. We now have a DCR of 1.26, which is unacceptable to the bank. Instead, they want at least a 1.35. Now there's a few ways to go about this. First, we can put more money down. With another 5% down we can surpass the banks requirements and attain a 1.36 DCR. Also we could pay less for the property. The last two options would be to either get a lower interest rate, or a longer amortization schedule. The DCR is definitely the key difference between a commercial investment loan and a home loan. However, there is still one other major difference, and that is the loan term. Commercial loans terms can vary. Because commercial properties are usually much higher in value than a home loan, the bank doesn't want to set an interest rate for 30 years. They have a much shorter time frame -- anywhere from 3 to 10 years. Now, they might AMORTIZE the loan over 25 or 30 years, but the rate they give you is NOT SET for that long. You usually get a lower rate for a 3 year "lock in" rate, meaning for the first 3 years they cannot change the interest rate. Then you pay a little more for 5 years, 7 years, and if available 10 years. This again is when you really need to sit down and figure out what your future investment plans for the property are. So what happens after this 3 or 5 or 7 year time frame? One of two things. The first one is that after your "lock in" time frame, the interest rate on the loan begins to "float". What that means is that the rate can go up or down depending on the market. The second thing that can happen is that after your "lock in" time frame you will have a balloon payment. A balloon payment is a large lump sum of the remaining balance you owe that you have to pay the bank. Lastly, there's one key additional factor that comes into play when you are attempting to get a commercial loan, and that is the tenant leases. If you have four different tenants in a retail strip center, but they are all small mom & pop shops on a one or two year lease, lenders may be a bit hesitant. Compare that scenario to having four different, multinational tenants such as a Baskin Robbins or Sprint store on a 7 or 10 year lease, and banks would feel MUCH more comfortable with the latter. When you are finally ready to start the commercial loan process, be sure to check with your lender or bank and see what is the common DCR range for the type of property you are thinking about buying. Also, be prepared for the TYPE of loan they offer you -- be it one with a balloon payment or one with a floating interest rate. Again, being prepared from the start is the best way for you to ensure make the most of your investment ...now that's good to know.

The Business and Sustainable Development Commission identified $12 trillion of market opportunities aligned to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Unfortunately, the regulations designed to create stability in the financial system after the 2008 financial crisis have had the opposite impact in the developing world because of the disincentives to invest in those markets. With heightened capital and liquidity requirements, commercial banks—the natural financial intermediaries that find, structure, and sell deals to institutional investors—are on the sidelines. In this session, panelists will discuss how public sector institutions can better use guarantees and other risk mitigation tools to draw in private finance for sustainable development. #MIGlobal http://www.milkeninstitute.org/events/conferences/global-conference/2018/

Thomas Fingar: Understanding China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative
China is heavily investing in two infrastructure routes: a “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” stretching from Southern China across the Indian Ocean to connect Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Africa to the Mediterranean; and a land-based Silk Road Economic Belt connecting Western China to Europe via Central Asia. Establishing these transcontinental trade routes will likely cost over one trillion dollars and will cover 65% of the world's population. This investment could help fill a wide “infrastructure investment gap” in China and the 68 other Asian, African, and European countries it passes through, however, traditional international development actors such as multilateral investment banks and developed nations are concerned about the outcomes, terms, and process that come with this massive investment. There are still a number of questions surrounding how China might protect the route after it's built and if the benefits will outweigh the risk. Should recipient countries be worried about political strings that might come attached to OBOR projects? What impact does this different unilateral, loan-based model have on the recipient countries? How likely is China to succeed in achieving these grand investment goals and how will a project of this scale continue to contribute to China’s own growth? What type of impact does this project have on global trade in general? Join us and Dr. Thomas Fingar, a Shorenstein APARC fellow in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, to discuss these and other questions surrounding China’s massive undertaking.
