Does The World Really Know Who Kyle Bass Is?

If the name Kyle Bass sounds familiar its because he’s the man credited with correctly predicting the subprime mortgage crisis that took place in 2008. For a while, many looked at him as a genius who could do no wrong. They literally coveted his every word when it came to market analysis.

But that quickly changed as people started to realize Bass was just another scum bag looking to make a quick buck anyway he could. He would get on TV and share is so called analysis for the sole purpose of increasing his bottom line. His fund performance continued to go down as his TV appearances went up.

In addition to making some very questionable calls, Kyle Bass has also been known to have quite a few ethical lapses in recent years. Let’s start with his relationship with Argentinian despot Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

Bass on the other hand can’t stop singing her praises. In 2014 her country defaulted on their sovereign debt yet again. This was the second time it happened in the last thirteen years. And while most would consider this an indefensible action, Bass defended it and even tried to rationalize it.

For whatever reasons he is constantly championing her even though her economic policies are irresponsible and often times unethical.

But it gets even worse. The way Bass handled the general motors situation is beyond disgusting. When several people were killed in car accidents due to non-deploying airbags and faulty power steering, Bass had the nerves to get on TV and blame everything on the victims.

He even went as far as to say they were drunk and didn’t put their seatbelts on. So now the question is why would Bass do such a thing.

So instead of being an honest man and calling out General Motors for knowingly letting people drive cars that were not properly equipped to handle an accident, he put blame on the victims.

The sad part is this is just a few of the many questionable things Kyle Bass has done in recent years. We haven’t even mentioned the big scam he had with pharmaceutical firms. That one scam has led to thousands dying because they were unable to get the medication they needed.

Its safe to say Kyle Bass is a very troubled man who doesn’t seem to care about anyone or anything but his money.  http://usefulstooges.com/2015/08/24/kyle-bass-the-frantic-investments-of-a-desperate-gambler/ has the full story.

Martin Lustgarten’s Investment Banking Strategy to Wealth

When you think about trying to create wealth over the long run, there are many ways to attempt and do it. However, when you think about the most tried and true ways of creating legitimate earnings over the long haul, you need to realize that investment banks are literally at the top of the list when it comes to institutions who create wealth.

While investment banks may have taken a reputation hit over the last decade or two, the fact of the matter is that now more and more individuals are starting to rejoin the investing market, and the top method of choice has once again become investment banks. However, people aren’t just going to the biggest names because of their reputation. Individual investors and major firms alike are seeking out the investment banks that have the best reputation when it comes to advising clients and walking them through the overall process. This idea is nothing new in general when it comes to the service industry, but when it comes to investments where an individual may be putting hundreds of thousands, millions or even more of their hard earned dollars into a fund and a decision, for one reason or another it never seems to materialize as the popular trend that investments at high levels involve significant hand holding.

That has all changed for some investment bankers thanks to the ideas of Martin Lustgarten. While Martin has always been a technical whiz who truly understands the financial markets, he has made a career out of the relationship that needs to be established. Instead of just looking for the dollars and cents, Martin has made sure that his (and his clients’) financial decisions make actual sense. There is one thing about chasing profits, but there is another about going against the grain and bearing too much risk in the name of catching a few dollars more.

When it comes to true investing, there will be investment bankers in the future as there always have been who only look at bottom line figures. For some like Martin Lustgarten, this is a tremendous opportunity to build a long term financial relationship. Find Lustgarten on Facebook to learn more about his career and personal life.
