How can we better understand when a new innovation really changes the business, and represents a revolution and threat to incumbent companies? For example, in fintech it is just an evolution to get a new technology platform for online banking services, but a revolution changes the role of banks and more generally the value chain within the very roles in it. Apple didn’t just make a better phone than Nokia, they created the App Store and content business for third parties. When a new innovation emerges, incumbent companies often see it is just a new piece of technology, and they can utilize it with their old business model. Maybe we can say startups want to over-estimate the impact of a new innovation and incumbent players want to under-estimate it. Cognitive psychology teaches us that humans are easily fallible as it comes to assessing the extent to which events are within their control.
Financial services by volume has several interesting occupations, least of which is trading.
AI and machine learning are still in early phase, but the practical implications with modern processing power continuously increasing is phenomenal and unprecedented. None of the current market applications in digital finance make use of real AI, despite what hype around robo advisor services may imply.
The US Treasury issued an extensive analysis and commentary of the state of affairs in the most established sector within fintech, marketplace lending. The notion of caution was issued around the sustainability and stability of business models in marketplace lending, particularly as it concerns a novel and dynamic market that is still finding its long term footing. In our work with financial institutions and fintech pioneers, we often refer to three tenets of what the concept of digital finance builds on, that is efficiency, access and transparency.
By detailing workflows and providing access to detailed reporting for market participants, can digital finance pioneers and leaders alike provide a way to further the conversation and develop toward optimal models that allow for learning in the market, but also keep the market participants abreast of events. There is no action needed for the many of you who have already started to use the new platform – keep up the good work! For those who don’t have active campaign on the old platform can easily start new one on our new site. The migration guide is provided to all who have questions about the transfer from old platform to new one. When citing the growth of the fintech market, its common to see indicators such as VC investments in the market referenced. This comes at a while of a large technology overhaul within various financial services organizations, where we’ve had the pleasure of various conversations.
Another anecdote comes from a technical lead from a large financial services institution, in their lending department. This paints an interesting picture, one of large scale adoption and validity in the market that is met with the realities of existing infrastructure and its limitations. The London Stock Exchange (LSE) organized an investment fund conference in late March, with alternative finance playing an important role at the event. A question in the conference was, to discuss best models for investing in lending and other alternative finance platforms.
The markets development is still at a nascent stage, with significant growth to be expected for several years ahead as the market gains validity and volume.
While more than a third of all US states have enacted laws allowing digital investing, California is still without an intrastate securities crowdfunding regulation. The Small Business California’s Crowdfunding bill (AB 2178), proposed by Assembly Member David Chiu and sponsored by Small Business California, would allow SMEs in the state to raise up to $1 million, in securities sold in a 12-month period, within or outside this state.
The bill passed the Assembly Banking Committee in April, the next step now is for the Assembly Judiciary Committee to discuss and vote it.
Note: Accredited investors would be limited to investing no more than 5% of their net worth. California, home of Silicon Valley, is America’s posterchild as it comes to entrepreneurship, so its only fitting it develops its frameworks for incentivizing innovation and opportunities further. The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), recently announced the regulatory framework for peer-to-peer (P2P) financing, setting out requirements for the registration of platform operators. Last year Malaysia was the first country in South-East Asia to introduce a framework for Equity Crowdfunding (ECF), in an effort to provide wider access to financing for startups and SMEs and create a strong alternative finance market.
For those interested to operate a peer-to-peer platform, there are several criteria that must taken in consideration, including that the businesses be incorporated in Malaysia with a minimum paid-up capital of RM5 million (about US$1.3 million), and a board of directors that must be fit and proper. Ongoing obligations are imposed on the P2P operator such as ensuring compliance with platform rules, carry out investor education programmes, having in place processes to monitor anti-money laundering as well as an efficient and transparent risk scoring system for issuer, a contingency arrangement to ensure business continuity and ensure that its rules set out a rate of financing that is not more than 18% per annum. If you’re interested to read further about the duty and responsibility of a P2P operator in Malaysia, as well as at the requirements for issuer and investor willing to participate in P2P, you can check this exhaustive document released by the SC. Crowd Valley (a Grow VC Group company) is fortunate to work with some of the world’s foremost pioneers in new regulatory environments on setting industry best standards in practical terms. From new approaches to commercialisation, collaboration models and the breaking down of internal silos, fintech is challenging how financial services are prepared, presented and consumed at retail and institutional levels.
Delivering tomorrow’s leading financial services will not be dissimilar to serving up a Michelin star gourmet dining experience. In today’s traditional approach, incumbent financial services organisations have built end-to-end capabilities in-house, under one roof. In stark contrast to the traditional approach, tech startups and others are re-creating core financial services from the ground up. Commercialised via licensed APIs (automated programing interface), features can be scaled, switched on, switched off – and replaced.
For example, it is possible today to combine several APIs to create an online lending service capable of connecting issuers and borrowers, including the algorithms allowing participants to set their own market rates.
We coined the term Cafe Fintech to convey important parallels across two very different industries. Today as front-of-house, Grow Advisors advise on how to get the best service from Cafe Fintech.
Today, we are developing a range of Cafe Fintechs, each comprising an expert team delivering digital services to address opportunities in different verticals.
Fintech has become more mainstream, yet still leaves many organisations with unanswered questions on exactly how to incorporate meaningful technological innovation into their businesses. By recognising that the evolving landscape is much more dynamic and accessible, we hope a greater number of organisations will take a seat at the table. As a global pioneer and leader of digital finance, The Grow VC Group is championing an industry-wide awakening and acclimatisation of disruption in financial services.
Grow VC Group and Grow Advisors were both recipients of Finance Monthly fintech firm of the year 2015. You can read the whole article on Grow Advisors Blog and it will appear as a special feature in the May edition of Finance Monthly. The Asian industry leading conference for the film and content production industry, 7th Creative Content Production Conference (part of BroadcastAsia2016) is showcasing crowdfunding with conference related campaigns as the first big international conference.
Showcase 1: Malaysian based Cikeboom’s Pencil Key is a 2D animation TV Series for 3-9 years old kids. Showcase 3: Italian Mimulus is a story is an international movie production that will be shot in Italy, Greece and Japan. Campaigns will start running on May 4, 2016 and can be followed and supported on Kapipal’s BroadcastAsia2016 website.
Kapipal will also run side event about crowdfunding and it’s opportunities for businesses and project creators during BroadcastAsia2016. Article and analysis by Grow Advisors (a Grow VC Group company), originally published on Grow Advisors Blog. Firstly, the UK regulator, the FCA, has played an important role developing the fintech market. The impact of these aspects depends on services, company resources and the development of digital finance services. It is clear the debate and months leading to the referendum are already having questionable effects.
Fintech requires sound skills in these areas, could stand to lose out if fewer European applicants wish to (or are able to) enter the country. As regulations develop around the world, the UK’s relative strength could diminish unless it stays one step ahead. However, as offshore regimes attract greater scrutiny, and the need for more transparent financial services gathers pace, this becomes a remote possibility. Further, some EU directives such as PSD2 also offer new fintech opportunities, and these would not be possible to non-EU UK.
The UK has promising fintech startups, but they have yet to achieve significant success outside the UK. Although the UK and London have a strong position in fintech globally, the market is still in a very early phase and making predictions to which countries will dominate is a risky exercise. As all successful business leaders will attest, a critical factor underlying success is its ability to attract top level entrepreneurs, team members and employees. While it is hard to evaluate a post brexit landscape as it would be a new paradigm, we can assume it will create uncertainties for fintech companies and especially small and medium sized companies. Business needs certainty with which to plan for the future and unfortunately, a brexit would present particularly high hurdles.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced new initiatives earlier in April to boost the country’s position as a global hub for the burgeoning financial technology sector.
The head of the Monetary Authority of Singapore Ravi Menon and the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, were recently at the Asia Society in New York where they announced the launch of the first Singapore FinTech Festival, to be held from 14 to 18 November 2016. As stated on the MAS website, the festival will be supported by the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS), and will comprehend a ‘fintech hackcelerator’, an awards ceremony for the most creative digital finance applications, as well as conferences and debates on regtech. Bloomberg reported that Menon declared Singapore will regulate their fintech companies only when they grow to a size that can be a threat to the financial system. Singapore is not alone here, other countries around the world are taking fintech growth seriously, and the UK is one of those. Digital finance is flourishing everywhere from London to Singapore, are you ready to seize the opportunity? With crowdfunding growing in popularity, it is no surprise that universities and colleges across the globe are turning to crowdfunding in order to raise money for everything from research projects to university sporting teams.
Many of you probably know that much of our society’s top discoveries are uncovered through faculty and student research projects. For example, the University of Maryland’s Bee Informed Partnership started a crowdfunding campaign and raised $24,000 to monitor and encourage the health of honeybees that help with much of the produce that our world eats.
As budget cuts continue to afflict universities and colleges across the globe, university level sports teams and clubs are finding themselves within little to no financial support.
Outside of research projects and sports teams, universities and colleges are also using crowdfunding instead of – or coinciding with – traditional fundraising efforts. As always, if you are interested in starting a crowdfunding campaign, but are not sure where to start, feel free to contact Kapipal! Current headlines are dominated by traditional institutions becoming minor or even major players in fintech platforms globally.
The aim is simple, institutions with a network of local or “community” banks are providing their customers an alternate avenue to raise capital if they cannot do so within the physical branch.
We at Crowd Valley (a Grow VC Group company) have seen both local banks and institutions identify this opportunity and enter new markets in a very meaningful way. Institutions looking to capitalise on collaboration within the fintech space, get in touch with us at Crowd Valley to leverage our full offering and industry leading Digital Back Office that bridge the gap into fintech. The Country Risk Barometer: Key Challenges for 2016 produced by trade credit insurer Coface, highlights those countries that have persevered through this economic contraction as well as those that have recently underperformed. Bright spots from the report have been seen in Europe as a whole, with Central Europe being the highlight. That is not to say that risk from a possible Brexit, the ongoing Refugee Crisis and financial instability in countries like Greece, Spain and Portugal should be ignored. Further, the Coface report notes that “in addition to sluggish GDP growth negatively affecting their profitability, businesses in emerging countries are currently facing a second problem: their growing debt.
In some of our former posts we have discussed how artists and entrepreneurs are using crowdfunding to raise money for their art and business projects, but did you know that athletes of all ages are using crowdfunding as well?
Over Kapipal’s history, we have found that there is not one specific point where athletes turn to crowdfunding.
To get started, go to the Kapipal home page and click Start Project in the top-right side of the screen. League Fees – Even fun adult softball leagues have been known to have fees, so if you and your team are a bit tight on money, crowdfunding could be a great way to generate the funds needed to get you and your team playing! Tournament Fees – No matter whether you are participating in local tournaments or national tournaments spread out across the country, there are always fees associated and sometimes they can be pretty hefty! Equipment – Whether it is soccer cleats or football helmets, equipment is very important, especially in regards to player safety.


Finance professionals, platform operators and anyone interested to learn more about digital finance and the fintech market. The Grow VC Group has collected a new vision and insights document (see below) that focuses on new business models, new finance instruments and better utilization of resources in the finance sector. In our document we especially focus on four key areas: 1) capital, 2) distribution, 3) instruments, and 4) customers. We have listed some key areas to enable these new models: 1) new competence and knowledge development, 2) data and analytics, 3) technology, and 4) new innovation models. The Grow VC Group works in many areas in the ecosystem to develop new competences, services and technology solutions.

While there is debate as to the definition of disruptive innovations (see HBR article), the definition is not so relevant in practice.
Startups typically have a dream of a change that is a revolution, and incumbents want it to be only an evolution. Google created a new model to sell and price online ads in its search engine with key words, clicks and auctions. I worked for Nokia in the late 1990’s and I had to make a strategy for new technology that was emerging to our business area. The company has done excellent work with marketing and created hype in the early adopter communities.
But we can conclude that both are making a mistake if they think a new technology alone changes anything significantly. Technological advancements in computing power has been remarkable, but the growth and pace of development keeps on accelerating. Humans also easily overestimate their own importance in the events that befall them and in turn underestimate the impact of factors beyond our control, such as timing, the environment and sheer luck.
However, if you look at the complex, though logical and information rich environment,s what exactly is defensible for us humans that we can actually hold on to? In raising these points in conversations with more traditional firms in financial services or market participants, a common dismissal is “We’ve been using the basics, a phone and a relationship for decades. But in the next wave of applications, we are going to be seeing new models unfold that will dwarf our imagination and displace tens of thousands of professionals into new capacities and capabilities.
This comes the same week as the founder and CEO is ousted amidst internal reports of misconduct within the pioneer and leader in the sector Lending Club. In it the Treasury details several positive trends and spillover effects of marketplace lender pioneers, such as the increased service offered to often underrepresented consumers, the efficiency in the underwriting and decision making process and the benefits of increased competition in an often brick and mortar dominated market. The Treasury noted how the macro environment these companies have grown up to and developed in, has consisted of largely previously anomalous conditions, low interest rates, a financial crash, on one hand a clear increase of requirements on brick and mortar lenders and on the other a push toward more transparent, efficient models in financial services. Looking at recent events, its clear these values are not to be left unchecked and they are not a given just because a service embodies a digital native presence. We all have a role to play in the market and we should not accept the status quo at face value or the service we may get, but require and hold all participants accountable in the stride toward universal best practices that go above and beyond that of the the incumbent financial services market. We communicated that old and new site will run in parallel for three months as we wanted to give our users time to finish their current projects and have a chance to get familiar with the new site. Only thing to remember is your login details for old site don’t work and you need to sign up again. However accurate these numbers are, 2014 and 2015 have continued a dramatic increase in the pace of investment.
An example of which was a recent discussion with a system administrator within a large banking conglomerate who had been brought in to oversee the winding down of existing legacy infrastructure.
In the process of getting details of how their collateralized business debt marketplace should function (the configuration process), our team lead asked whether we could piggy bank on the existing infrastructure for business information as it already exists. Navigating these types of particularities is a crucial part of the adoption process and through our work with our clients we have been fortunate to be able to assist in the creation of new ways of delivering services for the modern consumers. Funds and wealth management business has especially need to find more uncorrelated assets in their operations. One conclusion of a panel discussion on the topic was that ‘open-ended’ models don’t work properly with p2p loans. They listed some requirements and candidates for those instruments, for example, 1) they must be scalable and easy to understand, 2) new real estate based instruments, and 3) PRS (Private Rented Sector) investment instruments. What the market needs is sophisticated participants with a long term view and commitment to developing these new models, pioneering new opportunities and setting benchmarks in the market.
Investing in startups, family-businesses and more in general in SMEs, is not that easy yet.
While the investment limit for retail investors is the lesser of $5000 or 10% of their net worth. The prior attempts to pass a crowdfunding law in California were not successful but now it could be the right time. The new California Local Economies Securities Act (AB 2751), by the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC), which already passed the State Assembly Banking and Finance Committee, aims to make investing in local businesses much easier.
These two initiatives are an important step in developing access to capital for small businesses and further growing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in California. Those interested to start a P2P financing platform can submit their application to the SC starting yesterday, May 2 2016.
After having released these guidelines for digital investing, the securities commission authorized the launch of six platforms (Alix Global, Ata Plus, Crowdonomic, Eureeca, PitchIN and Propellar Crowd+) allowed to facilitate digital investing for non-accredited investors.
You can find the new rules in the Chapter 13 of the document (Guidelines on Recognised Markets).

It’s an adventurous & humorous short story about a boy who finds a gadget from outer space that is extremely dangerous.
Bhutan, famously known to initiate the Gross National Happiness index as a measurement of and national success, is also one of the world’s most isolated nations. It’s a story about Petros, a Greek professor researching Nikiforos’ personal diary to research the mystery of the stones the three walls of the Holy House of Mary, today inside the Basilica of Loreto, really come from the Byzantine church of Porta Panagia, in Pili, where they were guarded by the Byzantine family Angelo Ducas Comneno. The financial services sector is a major backbone for the UK economy, and fintech an emerging sector within it. It has enabled a culture that allows and encourages innovation of new services; where regulations and guidelines are based on actual experience and industry feedback loops. Recruiting in the UK’s finance sector has slowed according to a recent Financial Times article (paywall) as companies see uncertainty and delay recruiting decisions until after the vote.
It would lack essential skills and experience in areas such as technology, internet and data science.
Though local licenses may still be required depending on the service offered, the UK has been able to benefit from the global appeal of its fintech ecosystem. Today one can argue the UK offers better and more liberal regulation for fintech companies. If we factor in the fact that there isn’t a strong history of UK businesses with significant international success in Internet, retail or technology, UK fintech success on a global scene is not a foregone conclusion.
We have outlined several risks facing UK based companies when looking for growth in Europe and globally. Add to that the importance of an environment conducive to grow business, one that encourages talents to come and innovate. Below, we will detail some of these crowdfunding efforts and also note that more and more universities and colleges are using crowdfunding as oppose to traditional fundraising efforts.
Yet research projects often require finances (sometimes a whole lot!), so where do researchers turn to in order to generate funds? Rather than give up, students and coaches are turning to crowdfunding as a way to generate funds so players can continue to play the sport that they love. The premise behind this is that universities are better able to leverage their alumni network via social media contact, as opposed to traditional contacting methods, like newsletters or postcards.
This week it was announced that BlackRock made an investment of ?12.7 million in Funding Circle. This comes in the form of onboarding these customers onto a digital finance portal which they operate. By operating in the “cloud” platforms both future proof scaling and mitigate internal controls to enter the market efficiently. Utilising their internal expertise in market knowledge, operations and product positioning, it gives them an advantage over most.
Benefiting from cheap oil, the weak euro, and the slow decline in unemployment, the outlook looks positive overall. Sometimes they are a fresh individual or group looking to start a new league or raise money for a future event, other times they are already well-established and simply need funds for new jerseys or tournaments. Digitization, alternative finance and fintech enable many new things, but they are enablers and the ultimate target is to offer better products and more value to the customers, to increase business earnings and offer better ROI for capital. We then highlight some models and solutions, how finance companies can increase efficiency and value in all those key areas. The established finance institutions often also need a significant culture change to adapt to new models. For example, Crowd Valley’s back office enable fast development of new finance service on robust cloud based back office functions, DealIndex is the leading source of Alternative Finance data, Grow Advisors assists finance companies in the transition to the digital era, and TradeUp develops new models for export growth capital.

The more relevant question is whether a new innovation opens opportunities for new companies and is a fatal threat to old business. They are about technology, but the reason why they are a revolution is that they are not only technology, they change the business models and business logic of entire industries. Banks want to utilize blockchain to have better database solutions, and startups want to use blockchain to destroy the positions of banks with new business models. Amazon cut the middle-men from the book sales value chain and offered a new customer experience.
Now it is getting a lot of pre-orders for a new model that just comes out after a couple of years.
New big things also include new customers, new customer experience, new business model, changes in the value chain and new division of commodity and value-added components.  Those who want to make a revolution must change fundamentals, not just improve things. Have you thought through the extent of the plausible impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in the financial services market?
Like all change it will be uncomfortable and fought against, but try arguing the contrary point.
Its clear these conditions are not permanent and shifting the environment will have an impact on business models. If anything else, consumers, partners and stakeholders should hold a spotlight to them rigorously to ensure that perceived transparency is not misused. The new site offers many improvements and we are constantly updating new features to make even better.
In case we didn’t reach you go to our migration guide for more information how to transfer your existing campaign to the new site. Another factor that’s often harder to quantify, is the adoption among the incumbents and established market participants in the sector but arguably its at least as indicative of a larger trend. They also concluded that the US BCD (Business Development Company, similarities to VC funds) is a very problematic structure to use for p2p loans.
To name a few in October the SEC approved the Title III of JOBS Act, making online investing possible for retail investors.


From a pure innovation cycle point of view, they offer a credible alternative to acquiring or buying out companies seen as threats to incumbents. From funding solutions to marketplaces and co-investment models, we help disruptors and incumbents alike, to set business strategy and deliver technology solutions.
As the Buddhist kingdom continue to modernize and open up to the world, will the ‘happiest country in the world’ continue to remain contented and happy? In contrast, many countries have opted to define exacting rules beforehand, leaving much less room to innovate and often stifling the very sector they aim to grow. Looking closer at fintech, it requires a mix of several key skills including 1) finance, 2) Internet services, 3) technology, and 4) data science. Recognising the importance of foreign labour skills, even the ‘Leave’ campaign suggests the UK could continue to take on foreign workers. If ‘Leave’ wins, the ensuing EU resignation process could take up to 2 years, though negotiations and developing new business frameworks are expected to take even longer. Skilled workers from outside the UK often make up for the shortfall where highly analytically skilled professionals are needed. In a post brexit environment, this may no longer hold true, and other cities more accessible may emerge as beneficiaries. However, companies wanting to operate in other countries must fulfil specific requirements in those countries too. In contrast, other European countries such as Germany, Sweden and Spain, have created highly successful modern consumer business globally. With ?6.6 billion in revenue and more than 60,000 people employed in 2015, the size of the UK financial technology sector is already considerable and considering the attention given to the sector, the future definitely looks promising. Traditionally, researchers would have to compete for grants, yet now more and more are turning to crowdfunding in order to raise money for their projects.
This is still in its initial stages, but universities spread out across the entire United States – in states such as Utah, Vermont and Virginia – have launched crowdfunding campaigns in the past, and more are preparing to in the future! Similar activity is mirrored by companies such as Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and DBS in Singapore. The motive for the institution is clear and with the rise of “collaboration” it makes entering the market effortless. With the prospect of economic volatility reaching developing countries, evaluating risk is key when determining investment and trade opportunities. Whether it is an Olympic level athlete generate funds for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics or a youth sports teams trying to gain support for their tournaments and travels, athletes from all over the world are using Kapipal (a Grow VC Group company) to raise money for their dreams. With the campaign page, it will be a very important that you inform your audience of who or your team is and what your goals or dreams are.
No return or exchange will be accepted after 30 days from the date of you receive the item. I tried to be smart and named the strategy “Evolution to revolution,” because to speak only of the revolution and a threat would have been politically incorrect internally. Not only do these represent demeaning way of looking at some of the most promising technological advancements, arguably they represent a deep misunderstanding of just how fundamental this change in landscape is. Now the three months has passed and we are ramping down the old site on May 19th after which you are unable to access it any more. That being said, this trend is unmistakeable across the board and sooner or later, it will get completed either smoothly or more likely, through a series of at times critical system failures.
At the same time, more and more senior talent from the traditional finance companies are moving to p2p lending and instrument companies. A few months prior, South Korea launched “Financial Investment Services and Capital Markets Act” and Portugal regulations for securities crowdfunding. Other than strong finance skills, the UK’s track record to build global technology and Internet companies is however not world class.
It would however create systems to control and monitor who and how many are welcomed into the country. Companies however would be required to adapt to the new situation immediately while having to make investment decisions based on longer term plans. With tight resources, faced with administration hurdles and visa processes, changes to immigrant workers could impact operations. Though the UK has strong education establishments, it often lags other European countries when it comes to computer science, mathematics and other more analytical courses. This, as a result of an unclear trading environment where new frameworks need to be established. Services built on fintech are different from say, traditional fund management and investment banking.
And for those willing to go through potentially complicated visa (or similar) processes, there are other options like the US and some Asian fintech hubs to compete with the UK. While these large institutions are making waves in the digital finance space, similar size opportunities are being exploited by community banks and institutions in the form of local P2P networks. Tell exactly why you need additional funding, and what you plan to do with it once you reach your campaign goal.
Most solutions are relevant for many types of finance institutions, but we also include models, how e.g.
But the much bigger thing that is happening in transportation is self-driving cars and car-as-a-service. With hundreds of legacy Windows 2003 servers haunting in the background, there was literally no way it would be a good use of anyones time.

As a leading conference, 7th Creative Content Production Conference is the best place in Asia to share this knowledge and help filmmakers, big or small, to make it happen.” Mika Jordman, CEO of Kapipal stated.
Cikeboom is raising money for production of teaser video to help marketing and find funding for finalizing the production. Singapore based Xtreme Production, established in 1997, has vast experience in productions of varied scales and complexities, with portfolios ranging from international television programs to global corporate communications. Add to that the fact the UK has its own very particular visa types and rules, the panorama would leave many fintech startups with additional hiring stresses. Also, be sure to include some images or video of you in action playing the sport you are trying to raise money for. Maybe combining self-driving cars and an Uber type service, car-as-a-service, is the real revolution?
The menu, a collection of dishes, comprises features which in turn are made up of technology ingredients. In addition to visa complexities, UK based fintech would find it hard to operate in European markets, at least until new frameworks are established. I won’t order anything that I will only receive after two years at the moment, when the industry can change totally in a few years.
Certainly it is the case that some investment banking and fund management services operate in offshore locations successfully.

Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley.
We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant.
We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments.
Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products.
We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society.
In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity.
However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed. However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility.
Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities.
One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour.
Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with.
There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants.
Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments.
Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime.
We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling. I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
