Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi: Leaving A Lasting Legacy With Bradesco Bank

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is an influential figure of Bradesco Bank. The 4th president of Bradesco Bank is credited for acquiring the Brazilian branch of HSBC for $5.2 billion, and he also transformed the company to become one of the leading banks in the country.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi started working with Bradesco Bank at an early age as clerk, being only 17 years old. The young banker balanced his time between working and studying, and he managed to endure the hard work until he graduated from college. After attending the university, he started to work harder, until his superiors noticed his efforts. He was promoted to the marketing director, 15 years after he began working with Bradesco Bank.

As the company’s new marketing director, Trabuco ensured that Bradesco Bank would be having a healthy relationship with the members of the media. He used his influence in the company to promote a positive image for Bradesco Bank, and the broadcasting companies have commented that he is handling his job correctly. The executives working at Bradesco Bank decided to promote him once again, this time to become the president of one of the company’s subsidiaries. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi held the position for only a couple of years, and he was later promoted to a higher position, this time as the company’s executive vice president.

When he was serving as the company’s vice president, two of their closest rivals started to think about how they can beat Bradesco Bank. Banco Itau and Unibanco decided that they should merge to become the leading bank in the country, and in 2009, the merger took place. The new company, called the Itau Unibanco, has become one of the largest financial institutions in the country, and they managed to get the attention of all the investors working in Brazil. The merger of their two closest rivals resulted to the loss of Bradesco Bank’s investors, and another consequence was the depletion of their assets. This time was very critical for Bradesco Bank because their president also had to retire. The executive department started to look for a replacement, and they considered a few people for the position of president. After a short deliberation, the board of directors for Bradesco Bank announced that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi would become the next president of the company.

Under his leadership, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi focused on how he could win back the hearts of the investors who have left the company. He started working with HSBC Brazil and offered them $5.2 billion for a merger contract. The former accepted the offer, and after Bradesco Bank announced the merger of the two giant financial institutions, investors started to return to Bradesco Bank, and their assets began to skyrocket. It was one of his greatest legacies with the company, and he stated that he would want to acquire more financial institutions for the benefit of Bradesco Bank. However, he already reached the compulsory retirement age and had to leave his position in March of this year. Octavio de Lazari Junior succeeded him as the new president.

Multiple Women Nominated for U.N. Committee on Disability- Thanks to Sightsavers

Sightsavers is committed to protecting sight (75% of vision loss could be prevented) and fighting for disabilities rights. Advocating for the rights of those with vision loss/blindness and the diversity of those individuals is key. The United Nations Disability Committee monitors the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Recently, 17 women and 13 men were nominated for placement in the nine positions vacant on this committee – elections will be held on June 12, 2018 in New York. The 18-member committee has attracted criticism for its lack of gender parity and with only one woman and 17 men. It is likely the demographics of this committee will change drastically in June 2018.

The 17 women nominated represent a diverse group of nations, hailing from Australia, Barbados, Brazil, Ghana, Guatemala, Ecuador, Egypt, Indonesia, Iraq, Kuwait, Mexico, Montenegro, Panama, Poland, the Republic of Korea, Sudan and Ukraine. This increased representation of women aligns with the committee’s recent statement: “The committee is concerned about this absence of gender parity, particularly given that one of the principles of the Convention which traverses all provisions and which guides the committee’s work is equality between men and women.” The committee then encouraged the United Nations’ membership to mindful of the need for increased gender diversity in putting forth nominations for membership.

Gertrude Oforiwa Fefoame, Sightsaver’s Advocacy Advisor for Social Inclusion is one of the 17 women nominated, representing her home nation of Ghana. With over 28 years of experience as an advocacy leader in the area of disabilities and gender issues, she is hopeful to continue her advocacy as a member of this UN Committee.

“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is on my to-do list

It’s always an adventure when an artist famous in one medium takes on another. Sean Penn is such an adventurer. With “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” he fashions a story based in our culture and makes apparent the inconsistencies inherent therein.

An article in Vogue by Corey Seymour dated April 6 2018 provides some context to the journey Mr. Penn took to arrive at the manuscript. Acting in the public eye since the 1970’s, he is the iconic Jeff Spicoli of Fast Times fame, the damaged ex-con Jimmy Markum in Mystic River, and the heroic Harvey Milk in Milk. But he is much more than that. As a prolific writer and director, he’s had a hand in hundreds of projects. With fame though comes definition, and with definition, expectations.

Big projects that require assets and funding and other people are necessarily the result of compromise. Many people are invested, and if you’re lucky they are people with talent and style and vision, and they don’t give up on that vision without cost. The balancing of those costs is accounted for through compromise, and with every compromise you give up a bit of self.

But that is not true of a novel. In writing “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, Penn did not have to give in to what others expected of him, he did not have to compromise to get it made, it is a true reflection of his inner voice. It reflects a wry iconoclastic wit. It exposes a sense of his vision of us, of the inconsistent culture we live in.

 

The protagonist is a sewer worker and an assassin. His life is both boring and filled with intrigue. He is surrounded by vacuous celebrity worship and shallow patriotism. He is the result of his upbringing and his environment, necessary and amoral. He provides thus a lens unbiased by common mores and cultural norms through which we view our world, free of the assumptions with which we justify the absurdity of it. He says he’s not trying to frame an opinion, but encourage us to form one. It’s on my to-do list.

Alex Pall and the Formation of the Chainsmokers

Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers recently sat down with Interview Magazine to talk about his career and some of their newest releases. With hits that have reached the top of the Billboard charts and recognition and fans from around the world, it looks like Alex Pall will be around in the music industry for a long time. While growing up, Alex Pall DJed at various events and venues around the New York City area. On his own, he managed to gather quite a following but his life was changed after his manager introduced Alex Pall to Drew Taggart who quickly became the second member of the Chainsmokers.

When Alex Pall was introduced to Taggart, he was employed at an art gallery in New York City and DJing was more of a side job to him than a career. It was truly his passion though and he wanted to pursue it. After meeting with Alex Pall, Drew Taggart made the decision to relocate from Maine and the Chainsmokers as we know them now were born. Within 24 hours, Alex Pall and Taggart were already working together to write and produce songs. They realized that their musical and personal styles complimented each other in a great way. They could see what the other could offer to their music and their driven attitudes helped Alex Pall and Drew Taggart succeed. The pair knew they wanted to make it in the music industry and they were willing to put the work into it to achieve their goal.

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart began working with each other every day to discover and create their musical identity as the Chainsmokers. While they may not have wanted to treat it like a job, the two had a lot to do to become the Billboard-topping EDM group that they are today. While the Chainsmokers may pay Alex Pall’s bills, it means a lot more to him than that and he enjoys being able to make an impact on his fans.

$2.3 billion

The PPP project in Rio is the largest ever undertaken in a developing country by the World Bank and supported through IFC. PPP projects are a development strategy that was adopted the Brazilian government to allow authorities to proceed with development projects by sourcing for support from the private sector when the government cannot immediately raise the resources required to channel towards important urgent projects. The philosophy behind the Public-Private Sector partnership is that development projects can be completed sooner, rather than waiting for the day and time that the authorities will have money to complete them. Felipe Montoro Jens explains that IFC is a common partner in such projects in developing countries. In particular, he reveals that IFC has been contracted to offer advisory and research at a cost of $2.3 million.

July 2012; the Date When He Project Was Inaugurated

They say that even if a rose is given another name, it will smell as sweet. Felipe Montoro Jens explains that the PPP project dubbed the Education network Project is the same one with the Public Private Partnership for Schools in Brazil, launched in 2012. It was first made public in Belo Horizonte in Minas Gerais. Felipe Montoro, who also acts as the spokesperson for the project activities explains that the project is well on course especially given the fact that the term of the current mayor of Rio De Janeiro runs all the way up to and including 2020. Mayor Crivella Marcelo fully supports the project activities. Felipe Montoro Jens reports that in the deal, the private sector will be charged with the construction and maintenance aspects while the city fathers will oversight the actual pedagogical aspects of its implementation.

Paul Mampilly Warns People Away From Cryptocurrencies


Paul Mampilly is a pro when it comes to making investments. He writes about investment opportunities for Banyan Hill Publishing where he is the senior editor. The main types of companies he covers are small-caps, tech, growth investing, and special opportunities. He has two newsletters out on a subscription basis which are Extreme Fortunes and Profits Unlimited.

Another area that Paul Mampilly has been covering lately is cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and etherium. He sees these types of assets as being in a big bubble and he is expecting their values to crash pretty soon. Over the years he was a hedge fund manager he says he saw a lot of bubbles come and go but nothing like cryptocurrencies. He doesn’t claim to know exactly when their values will come crashing down but he says it’s just a matter of time until a lot of people lose most of the money they have put into cryptocurrencies. Read this article at weeklyopinion.com.

He recalls 1999 when everyone and their brother was piling into tech stocks. Everyone felt like tech stock could only go one way and that was straight up. Paul Mampilly says he had a friend named Tess who owned some tech company stock that had gone up by more than 1000% in value. He told her that was amazing and it was a good time to sell and keep the gains. She didn’t listen, though, as she and everyone else expected even more gains. However, the dot com crash soon happened and Tess lost everything she had invested as the company she had invested in went bankrupt.

He says he could see the dot com crash coming and had pulled all of his money out of tech stocks before the crash occurred. He says that when he pulled his money out he half thought it was a mistake to have done so as even he was caught up in the euphoria. However, he stayed the course and was quite happy he didn’t lose money when everything came crashing down.

People are now piling into cryptocurrencies, seeing this as the next big thing to make a lot of money. Paul Mampilly has been warning people that bitcoin, etherium, and the like are very overvalued. Governments are starting to regulate cryptocurrencies which will curtail their growth, such as Japan and soon Russia and China as well. The time to get out of cryptocurrencies is now before their values experience huge declines.
