The Black Swan Connection March 2017

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 22, 2017

March 2017

Our goal with the Black Swan Connection is to provide our subscribers, investors and financial professional compatriots outstanding investment insight that is a step above and outside of what will normally be found in mainstream financial press. To that end we have brought together seasoned, successful, and some of the brightest professionals in their respective fields to provide the articles and advice that is based on decades of practice in the field.

Staying connected to what matters most is our mission!
Happy March!!
Things are moving along at SMM. New offerings are coming along for REG A and 506(c)  and we’ve added a new section on our website for those offerings. Several new listings and updates for existing profile clients. See details below.
A warm welcome, as contributors, to our friends from Directors and Officers Insurance. Tim Hillert and David Herlands. Tim and David have been in the D & O and related insurance business for a long time and really know there way around these specialty insurance products. Whether you run a public company are an investor with capital at risk, a professional that has influence in the decision making process or a company officer, events out of your control could be life changing.
Great to have some professional advisors on your team.
Their first article for the Black Swan is titled Protect Your Assets:
Protect Your Assets provides financial protection for directors and officers of a company and protects them to the limits of the policy in the event of a personal lawsuit due to the individual’s performance pertaining to their duties for the company. It should not be confused with errors and omissions insurance which is more for the management for employees of the business. Read More
David and Tim also represent an insurance agency that is affiliated with a partnership that I hold an interest in.

Newsletter From Dave Lavigne
Oil Prices, OPEC and the Crown Prince has no Clothes
In our November newsletter write up we covered oil prices in the context of OPEC and other non-OPEC producers’ decision to collude on their collective production. It’s interesting how outright collusion, has become acceptable for some (OPEC for example), but is substantially frowned upon for others. A 2005-2006 investigation into price fixing by international airlines led to jail time for a handful of airline executives and billions of dollars in fines. It’s funny how the world works sometimes.
Since our November letter regarding OPEC’s attempt to rescue oil prices, several of the questions we raised in that writing have been answered, or at least have played out a bit. As a result, we thought the topic was worth updating since oil prices remain a key cog in the affairs of the world. First, here’s a recap of some of our main points from the November writing.

Drain the Swamp
So, the fight is on over Healthcare, Immigration, Taxes and Defense and so on.
I’m sure that the President is finding that running a multi-billion-dollar global real estate empire was trivial by comparison.  The biggest difference may be that in business if you really can’t deal with someone you simply tell them to take a hike and that’s that.
Government is a lot like running a military operation. You’re stuck with the people you have on your team and you can’t fire everyone you don’t like or who is incompetent. Additionally, Foreign Leaders, Senators, Congressman and others all have to be appeased to get things accomplished.
Soooo… Let's talk about how things get paid for in “backroom” deal making. Healthcare for instance.   Read More
