Business Unusual at Banco Bradesco SA as a new Chairman Assumes Office and a new CEO is set to Be Appointed

     Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is the chairman of the board of directors of Banco Bradesco SA, and at the same the time, the president of the Osasco-based Bradesco. He has doubled up as the holder of both positions for well over three months. Initially, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi served only as the president of the bank, which boasts of being the second most significant private bank in Brazil after Itaú Unibanco, with Lazaro de Mello Brandao presiding over the board of directors; this has been the case since 2009. However, Lazaro de Mello Brandao, 91, resigned towards the end of last year, prompting the bank to appoint Luiz Carlos Trabuco as his successor.

Brandao ascended into the chairmanship of Bradesco in the early ‘90s. At the time of ascension, he was the president of the bank, a post he had held for ten years. Brandao then served the Osasco-based Bradesco in both capacities, abdicating duty as president in 1999. Marcio Cypriano was appointed to the office of the president of Bradesco following Brandao’s resignation.

Serving as chairman during both Cypriano’s and Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s tenures, Brandao was instrumental in growing Bradesco to its present mammoth size. Brandao and Cypriano facilitated Bradesco’s acquisition of ten smaller banks including American Express and BBVA’s Brazilian subsidiaries. Alongside Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, Brandao enabled the Osasco-based Bradesco to takeover more banks such as Ibi Brazilian and Ibi Mexican. Bradesco’s acquisition spree culminated in the takeover of HSBC Holdings Plc.’s retail unit in Brazil. The purchase, which occurred in 2015, was valued at $5.2 billion. And were it not for Itaú Unibanco’s vast assets and commendable market capitalization, the acquisition would have pushed Bradesco ahead of its chief rival, Itaú Unibanco. Nevertheless, Brandao resigned having spearheaded what will remain to be one of the most significant growth periods at the bank.

While serving as the chairman and president of Bradesco is not in violation of Bradesco’s bylaws or culture, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s tenure as the CEO of the bank will end in March. Bradesco is required to find a new CEO, who is younger than 67, as directed by the bank’s constitution. For convenience, newly elected CEOs should be at least ten years shy of 67 to save the bank the hustle of electing new presidents in quick succession.

Succeeding Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, as reported by Bloomberg, is one of its high-ranking executives. Bradesco has many high-level executives, but those currently at the helm of Bradesco Seguros, Bradesco BBI, human resources, IT, treasury and lending departments are thought to be the front-runners in the succession contest. They include

  • Mauricio Machado de Minas
  • Alexandre da Silva Gluher
  • Domingos Figueiredo Abreu
  • Josué Augusto Pancini
  • Marcelo de Araujo Noronha
  • Octavio de Lazari, and
  • Octavio de Lazari

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi

He ranks high among Bradesco’s longest-serving employees. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi joined Bradesco 26 years after its inception. The bank hired him to discharge clerical duties, and the executive has remained loyal to Bradesco ever since, disregarding any calls to quit. For instance, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was requested to preside over the country’s ministry of finance, but he politely declined former president Dilma Rousseff’s offer.

At the helm of the multi-billion worth Bradesco, many assume that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi studied economics, finance, accounting, or even engineering. They are surprised to establish that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi pursued philosophy at Sao Paulo State University. He later attended Fundação School of Sociology and Politics of São Paulo where he studied socio-psychology. Banco Bradesco is poised for exciting times ahead as Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi seeks to assert himself as the third chairman of the Osasco-based bank.

IDLife and its March to the Top of the Health and Wellness Industry

IDLife is indeed personalized nutrition. What IDLife has chosen to bring to market is a different philosophy of adding supplements to an individual’s well being. They take a unique approach by constructing a customized supplement program. Further perfecting the benefits received from their supplements they separate them by the ones best taken at night and those having the most effect when taken during the daytime.

IDLife does not offer one-size-fits-all vitamin and mineral supplements. They will only offer their supplements to customers who complete their HIPPA-compliant, evidence based assessment. This assessment enables IDLife to create a personalized supplement program for the individual. They add what that individual needs and eliminate what they don’t need.

This specialized nutrition supplement program is one of the features that makes IDLife a cut above the rest. Another important fact is that IDLife started with recommendations from the community of professional nutrition experts. Before beginning their distribution, they studied 7,500 peer-reviewed journals and many clinical studies to design their supplement formulas. To meet the individual needs they devised 1.3 million formulas, one of which should meet the needs of almost every individual.

The individual customization takes into account the fact that some additives are harmful to certain persons, so they are sure to leave out anything that might be harmful to a customer. To keep the supplements pure, IDLife does not use fillers in any of their supplements.

To distribute these fine products, IDLife also takes a personalized approach. IDLife does not sell to stores that then sell to the consumer. They sell directly to the customer through their independent distributors. Their network marketing business model allows distributors to sell to their own customer base. This ensures the customers receive the personalized attention they need to understand and appreciate how to make IDLife’s products work for them. Because of the use of one-on-one marketing, word of mouth is the most efficient way to spread the word about IDLife.

The company is lead by a Logan Stout; he is the CEO and Chairman of IDLife. Along with his partners, Troy Aikman and Jen Widerstrom entered the health and wellness industry with IDLife in 2014. IDLife is a thriving company which has the potential to be one of the most successful MLM companies in the U.S.

Jeff Yastine: Celebrated In Business Commentary And Practices As A Finacial Genius

Jeff Yastine, the Editor of Total Wealth Insider at Banyan Hill Publishing, has written about the changing economy and specializes in creative changes in businesses, such as the merger between Amazon and Wholefoods and his incites on the future of Tesla, the car company.

Amazon took a big risk by entering into with both feet, the retail food market in its merger with Whole Foods. Those that regularly shop at Whole Foods are members of an elite organic cult and are rabid Whole Food’s customers. If Amazon attempts to normalize the Whole Foods brand, which makes Whole Foods unique, it may lose its cult followers and would threaten the success of the merger, by diminishing of the Wholefoods successful brand.

Wholefoods’ customers have already complained, on the social media, about the quality of the food, especially the fruit, noticing mold and fruit flies. On the other hand, Amazone has made significant cuts in Wholefoods prices, known for its very high food costs, much appreciated by its customers. Visit Jeff Yastine at medium .com to know more.

However, the recent merger has not made other significant changes, and it is rumored that the Wholefoods expansive square footage may be converted into food warehouses, and the food may be delivered to its consumers. Professional food shoppers have created a new niche for consumers who are too busy to shop for themselves.

Tesla, guided by its CEO Elon Musk, has invented a cutting-edge, environmentally friendly electric car. In order to achieve this worthy means of making gasless transportation, it was necessary for Tesla to create new battery technology and an electric powertrain. As a result, Tesla, in 2008, introduced its electric Roadster. More info at Talk Markets

However, in 2017 Tesla’s third-quarter earnings dropped precipitously. But its Models S and X sales are predicted to set a sales record. Tesla is looking to China to revitalize its business.

According to Jeff Yastine, Tesla’s financial success is not in the car busy but the energy storage business. Yastine states that Tesla’s revolutionary battery can be reconfigured into a power grid to support the electrical needs of a nation. Evidence of this new source of power, complimenting solar and wind sources of energy, is Tesla’s revitalizing the power industry in Australia, and not the car industry.

Banyan Hill has been publishing since 2015 with the leadership of Jeff Yastine. Jeff Yastine is a stock market investor bring is vast financial knowledge to Banyan Hill. He anchored PBS ‘s Nightly Business Report from 1994 till 2010 and had associated himself with successful financiers and entrepreneurs.

Ted Bauman: An Investment Guru

Living as a musician still can be highly taxing and overwhelming. Musicians are often susceptible to the excitement of partying, too. That’s why it’s not at all uncommon for them to pass away when they’re still pretty young. It’s a tragedy. It isn’t common for musicians to have straightforward and defined wills, either. Musicians’ family members, because of that, often don’t attain their belongings for extremely lengthy stretches of time. It’s critical to note that musicians and their family members aren’t the only kinds of individuals who are vulnerable to this unpleasant scenario. People in general are vulnerable to it.

Securus Technologies fights the scourge of illicit cell phones in prison

One of the most serious threats that faces the nation’s prisons today is that posed by contraband cell phones. When unauthorized cellular devices fall into the wrong hand in the nation’s prison, the results can be catastrophic.

 

This is largely due to the unique nature of America’s organized prison gangs. For reasons that go back to the beginning of the U.S. prison system, as well as those that are more recent developments, such as the racially diverse nature of the country’s prison population, the U.S. prison system has fostered the growth of some of the most well-organized, formidable prison gangs anywhere on the planet.

 

These organizations often operate on a military-like hierarchy, with clear leadership and a lower tier of soldiers, who are often as regimented and well-disciplined as any found in the nation’s armed forces. Because of the extremely organized and effective nature of these gangs, merely locking them up often does little to ensure that they are unable to continue carrying out their criminal enterprises. So long as these gangs have members on the outside willing and able to do their bidding, the only thing they need to continue operating with 100 percent effectiveness is that ability to communicate with their soldiers on the outside.

 

For this reason, contraband cellular devices have become the bane of the U.S. prison system. Using unauthorized cell phones, prison gang leaders, also known as shot-callers or generals, are able to communicate all orders with the outside in an almost instantaneous fashion. In fact, many of these gangs maintain networks of illicit communications channels within the prisons where they are housed, making it nearly impossible to shut down their ability to communicate with the outside world by traditional methods alone, as one or even five confiscated cell phones within their network has little effect due to the fact that they have ten other backups.

 

Securus is changing the game

 

But now, there is a promising new technology that may prove the magic bullet prison officials have been looking for to solve the problem of illegal communications devices within prisons. Known as the Wireless Containment System, Securus has developed a technology that has a nearly 100 percent rate of detecting and intercepting all unauthorized communications within a prison’s grounds. The system is able to spoof local cell phone towers, making all devices think that they are connecting to the tower when, in fact, they are detecting to the WCS.

 

The system is also capable of homing in on all cellular devices within its purview that are currently turned on. This has enabled officers to dramatically increase the detection rate of illegal cell phones, making it nearly impossible for gangs to maintain the ability to use unauthorized communications devices.

 

Ted Bauman Explains Why Debt Is the Greatest Threat to Wealth

     Ted Bauman notes that most people in America are concerned about taxes. Currently, almost everyone is concerned about Trump/Ryan tax plan. Under the plan, the wealthy and corporations will enjoy significant tax cuts. Bauman is sad that the nation is obsessed with taxation yet it is not the primary problem facing Americans.

Taxes vs. Debts

Taxes attract the attention of most people since they lower disposable income. As a result of taxation, there is a reduction in consumption and investment. To Bauman, taxes mean nothing. To him, the most significant threat is debt. Credit markets are a serious threat especially to the middle-class.

Bauman disagrees with the narrative that life in America is expensive as a result of high demand. He argues that the availability of cheap credit is responsible for the high cost of housing and education. But what is his premise? If people were required to pay for these goods in cash, their prices would fall drastically.

Bauman’s finds it challenging to explain why the American economy is heavily debt-based. He sees it as a cycle; debt has caused so much lending and lending has come as a result of so much debt. The decision by the rich to invest in consumer lending markets has led to tremendous increase in income and wealth inequality in America today.

What’s the Impact of Loans?

Despite many people viewing loans as good for financial growth, Bauman has a different viewpoint. When consumers have access to loans, they can purchase goods and products with a relatively fixed supply at higher prices. This leads to an increase in the flow of money in the economy. The excess cash then has to be invested in the credit market. They cycle continues.

What’s Next?

Now that we have known the problem, it is advisable to find a way to tackle debts. A reduction in tax will lead a rise in deficits. The solution lies in interrupting this lending cycle since this will have the same impact on the prices of housing and education as tax reduction without affecting deficit.

Who is Ted Bauman?

Ted Bauman works at Banyan Hill Publishing as the editor of three newsletters namely The Bauman Letter, Plan B Club and Alpha Stock Alert. He specializes in providing critical information about property protection, privacy, human migration, and investment openings.

In Alpha Stock Alert, Bauman has beaten the S&P 500 index in the last ten years. His master of the market became even more evident when he made profits even during the financial crisis of 2008. Over the years, he has helped his readers take control of their economic destiny.
