Consumers are always looking for natural products that will have fewer consequences on Earth. There is a need for items that are completely natural and have a sense of sustainability. Dan Bethelmy-Rada, the global brand president for Matrix, has capitalized on this new-found desire by clients. Matrix is a professional hair care brand that meets the needs of their United States consumers. This is why Dan Bethelmy-Rada decided to create R.A.W., a revolutionary line that creates hair products that are environmentally-conscious. But it wasn’t an easy task to accomplish.
Making products that matched the standards of L’Oreal, while maintaining ingredients that were biodegradable was not simple. Dan Bethelmy-Rada and his team of specialists worked hard to find the right chemical process that would distort raw material and match the needs of the customers. Once they achieved this, they then had to persuade customers to seek out their new line of sustainable products.
Through the education of R.A.W., Dan Bethelmy-Rada and his team have informed stylists and hairdressers from over 700 salons in the United States of their water use. They provide professionals with solutions such as through videos that are uploaded on Youtube. They also took this challenge to the streets, daring everyone to live more sustainably, piquing curiosity about the new line of products.
The results from the launch seem to be overwhelmingly positive, which Dan Bethelmy-Rada is quite happy to see. Customers notice a difference in quality from the natural products involved. Perhaps with these positive remarks, Dan Bethelmy-Rada will be successful in his next endeavor, launching on the European market. With this new direction, Dan hopes to gauge just how open the rest of the world might be to the R.A.W. movement. It is no secret that consumers are looking more to products that are entirely natural with minimal environmental impacts, but it is a whole different story to ask one to change their habits. Dan Bethelmy-Rada believes that this is doable with enough coaxing. That humans are capable of living more sustainably with the proper education. That is why R.A.W. will continue to expand and grow to reach more countries. The United States was merely a test run.
The market in the United States has been a bull one in recent years, but this has not stopped Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale Capital from finding a good amount of success through their fundamental investing strategies. While other investors and firms have been following rather mechanical investment strategies, Sahm Adrangi still believes in betting for good companies and stocks for the long term while shorting the stocks of companies that are not being upfront with their practices to their investors and customers.
While some people have had negative things to say about Sahm Adrangi’s tactics of betting against companies that he does not see being successful in the long-run, he is a value investor and only shorts companies who have failed in their promises and are not engaging in business practices that range from being dishonest to flat-out fraudulent. So far, he has not had that many issues when it came to picking out stocks that he has had success with using his methods.
In May, Sahm Adrangi joined many other important and prevalent investors at a conference in Manhattan to discuss short selling and where it will be in the future. The Art, Pain, and Opportunity of Short Selling had over a dozen speakers who shared their experience and expertise on the topic of short selling to the other investors in attendance. Each one of these speakers shared their thoughts on an individual challenge that they faced during the process of short selling investments.
The opening speech of the conference was delivered by Sahm Adrangi himself and followed breakfast as well as an opening address by the event’s organizer Whitney Tilson. The topic of his speech was over the opportunities for short selling investments in relation to fraud in advertising. Over the recent years, ad fraud has been increasing considerably and he believes that something needs to be done to address the problem to prevent it from continuing. By shorting these companies as an act of value investing, Sahm Adrangi and other investors are going their part to draw attention from the public to the growing problem.
GreenSky Credit has been the leading creditor and financial institution, offering credit facilities to the small lenders and creditors so that they can increase their financial and lending capacity to their customers. This idea has assisted the small financial creditors because they can now give credit and loans to their customers with more flexibility and without much worry about how much they can afford to lend the borrower. They also have the advantage of giving the loans to their customers at more affordable rates than when they were on their own. This is because their financial risk has been shared with their reassurer, GreenSky Credit.
Since the foundation of the firm, GreenSky has been a success both to the owners and its business partners. This has been reflected by the alarming rate at which the number of clients has increased. The valuation figures of the organization are also a clear indicator that the firm is headed in the right direction. The CEO of the organization, David Zalik, has been so instrumental to the success of GreenSky Credit. Zalik has been a great inspiration to his employees and has also been their motivation. Bearing in mind that the workers of any organization are fundamental to its success or failure, those of GreenSky have contributed to its success.
One innovation that has turned all the financial tables for GreenSky Credit and all the other business partners that transact business with the organization is the introduction of an online platform where the customers to the small financial lenders can borrow the loans. This has made the process of loan application less tedious and more efficient. For instance, before the introduction of the online platform, customers had to fill papers manually, which would then wait for the approval by the staff from the lending institution, and then taken to GreenSky Credit where the loan could be disbursed.
The introduction of this online platform only requires the customer to log into the organization’s websitewhere they should fill in their credentials and loan details and then submit the application for immediate review. After the review by the lending institution, the borrower can comfortably wait for less than two days for the funds to hit their bank accounts.
