Capital Group and Samsung Asset Management’s Partnership Agreement

Timothy Armour was named Chairman of Capital Group in July. In Capital Group’s 85-year history they have acquired a reputation for sticking to the traditional security selections and the avoidance of products that lead away from that strategy, which means that they do not deal in indexing or exchange-traded funds.

This is a multi-manager system that takes each fund’s assets and divides them among numerous investors who pick stocks or bond by doing their own research.

On October 14, Capital Group signed an agreement with Samsung Asset Management in Seoul, Korea to develop products for the Korean investors. They plan on offering Samsung a version of their 42-year-old New Perspective fund in Asia. They will also open three other global strategies that are already in existence to the Asian investors in the future.

This agreement will facilitate a $1billion expansion that will include the cost of sales and marketing, the building of a technological infrastructure that will support the growth. The long term goal is to more than double the assets in Asia and Europe, that will lead to managing $50 billion in each of the regions.

Samsung’s CEO Sun-hoon Koo believes that the partnership will pave the way for his company to be able to upgrade their active equity investments and to implement life-cycle assets any for product strategies.

In a news release, Timothy Armour said that the broader plan for this venture is to co-design investment solutions that will fulfill the savings and retirement, along with the insurance linked needs of the Korean investors.

It seems that China was one of the to catalysis, and maybe the most significant to the selloff, with their unexpected decision to devaluate their currency, which was a shock to financial markets. Now the countries of Australia, Hong Kong, and Japan along with Europe have to deal with the potential decline in their export activity. Tim Armour believes that this market correction was not unexpected. Having periodic corrections is healthy for the market since it removes pockets of excess.

Timothy Armour graduated from Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont with a bachelor’s degree in economics. He then joined the Capital Group in 1983 and has been with then for 33 years. At the start of his career with them, he covered global telecommunications, then became an equity investment analyst, working in their Associates Program. Timothy Armour is now the Chairman, Director and Principal Executive Officer at Capital Research and Management Company where his job is Equity Portfolio Manager and their Chairman.

Human Rights Foundation Founder Thor Halvorssen Brings His Skills to Many Different Campaigns

Thor Halvorssen has spent a large amount of his adult life campaigning for the rights of others around the world who are not permitted to live a free and democratic life. Born in Venezuela into an important political family, Thor initially became involved with Amnesty International when his own father was illegally imprisoned in his native Venezuela for 74 days; Thor has not limited his activism career to campaigns he has a personal interest in, but has instead looked to develop campaigns that will have the biggest effect on as many people as possible.11)

After working with Amnesty International to head the campaign that secured the freedom of his father, Thor Halvorssen began working to help as many people as he could in being awarded their basic human rights. Halvorssen came to the attention of the public and his fellow human rights activists when he staged a protest during a shareholder meeting for Lucent Technologies, a company Thor and his fellow protestors believed were using Chinese slave labor to produce their range of products.

In his work in the human rights field Thor worked with many of the world’s best known activism groups, such as the Foundation for Human Rights In Education in a bid to make an impact on the lives of the majority of people in the world. Thor has praised the work completed by many of the world’s top groups and also been critical of a growing focus on human rights in democratic countries, which he believes allows his own Human Rights Foundation to work on abuses committed in closed societies around the world. Pointing to the work completed by human rights groups in the U.S. and western Europe into conditions in prison systems Thor explains this is important research that must be completed; however, Thor also believes the plight of people in closed societies, such as North Korea should be the focus of the majority of human rights activists around the world. Halvorssen keeps the pressure on tyrants around the world by working with dissidents crossing closed borders to bring news both in and out of countries across the globe.


These Common Mistakes May Be Damaging Out Your Hair

Dry and damaged hair is every woman’s worst nightmare. Damaged hair that is deprived of moisture looks dull and can be quite uncooperative when it comes to styling. For some women, no matter how often they condition their hair, they can’t seem to achieve the soft and silky hair of their dreams.

There are many reasons for dry and damaged hair, from too much exposure to heat to harsh shampoo ingredients. Below, we’ve listed some of the common causes for dry hair of which many women are unknowingly guilty.

  1. Sun Damage

When you are getting ready to soak up some sun, you most likely apply sunblock to your skin. Your hair requires the same protection as too much sun exposure can damage your hair and scalp. Therefore, it’s important that if you plan on getting in some sunbathing this summer, you must wear a hat that protects your hair from the damaging rays.

  1. Aggressive Towel Drying

Many women rigorously rub a bath towel on their hair after washing it in the shower. The problem is that the material from which most bath towels are made is too harsh on your hair and the friction can lead to serious breakage. Next time, try wrapping it in a t-shirt.

  1. Using The Wrong Shampoo

Many popular shampoo brands can severely dry out your hair. Sodium lauryl sulfate, the leading ingredient in many common shampoos, strips your hair of its natural protective oils that keep it soft.

Instead, switch to a cleansing conditioner like the 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner by WEN. Wen’s Cleansing Conditioner uses natural ingredients which don’t strip your hair of its natural oils.

Wen’s Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean ( is gentle on hair and cleans it thoroughly while conditioning it at the same time. Hair that was dry and damaged will become silky and manageable after one week of use. The products are available on Amazon.

If your hair is dry and dull, consider the possibility that one of these habits listed above is the culprit so that you can change your habits and once again have beautiful, soft and shiny hair. More hair care tips available on website and the Wen Facebook page.

Nationwide Title Clearing Unveils Online Ordering Of Titles

Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC) has made property reports available to the public through online ordering. The company reacted swiftly to the many calls for action made by the public concerning the incidences of title defects. The errors were worrying as they made property owners vulnerable to fraud. However, the new move will facilitate early correction of these errors, thus avoiding the demerits associated with such defects. Moreover, the company’s management believes that online ordering will help to smooth out the hiccups that have been prevalent in the real estate industry.

Several issues cause title defects. These defects occur when an individual or entity lays claim to a property that belongs to another person. The wording of a document can cause such deficiencies. The NTC finds it difficult to ensure that every title deed complies with the standards of each jurisdiction. There are also scenarios where new titles are created when prior liens to a property have not been removed. A title is only transferable when a claim is attached to the property. Lastly, failure to follow recording and filing procedures on real estate documents is another cause of title defects.

In an effort to reduce these defects, the company has made four additional property reports online. They are the Tax Report services, Tax Status (Plus) Report, Current Owner Report and Assignment Verification Report Services. Individuals are encouraged to check them to ensure that their properties are safe and do not have outstanding property taxes.

According to the company’s chief executive officer, John Hillman, the new improvements at the company are in line with the business’s goal of providing the public with a simple, fast, and systematic process that allows them to access their property report. Accuracy of the data is crucial. NTC has enhanced its research process on actual land records to facilitate correctness of the reports. The company obtains its data from other sources such as the counties. In addition, NTC enhances accurateness of the reports through verifying data using both automated and human processes.
