Coal Mine Threatens Indian Tiger

India is home to more than half of tigers in the world – 1706 tigers living in the wild, wild animal when it totaled 100,000 at the beginning of last century.

Coal mines to generate electricity is the biggest threat to tigers India. This report was written by environmental campaigners Greenpeace.

They are demanding a halt to land clearing for new mines just a few days after power outages in large parts of India highlighted the shortage of electrical energy.

Conservation of tigers, a sensitive issue in India, making the need to conserve wildlife in dealing with the development needs of countries facing economic growth slowest in nine years. Hundreds of millions of people living below the poverty line in the South Asian nation.

India is home to more than half of tigers in the world – 1706 tigers living in the wild, wild animal when it totaled 100,000 at the beginning of last century.

Emerging Asian countries that have witnessed an unprecedented increase in new coal mines and coal-fired power plant in the past five years, so that the lives of so many endangered animals increasingly threatened, says the report, which aired a few days ago.

Greenpeace, who called the situation “depressing”, said the coal mine have started to affect the tigers in many areas such as Chandrapur in Maharashtra state.

“But there are some other location where the problem is, or will soon, as bad,” said Greenpeace Campaigner Ashsh Fernandes told Reuters, as quoted by Antara on Saturday (04/08).

Government of India, which faces two power outages this week and the power shortage continues, facing strong pressure for additional coal to meet its energy needs are enormous.

Frequent power outages seen as a major disturbance for rapid economic growth, thereby increasing the pressure on the government to allow the development of coal mines.

India has the fifth-largest coal deposits in the world, and the largest producer after China and the United States.

According to the Greenpeace report, if India continued reliance on coal to meet its need for energy, the destruction that has occurred in the sector will double in most areas of central India, which has 80 percent of coal reserves in the country and 35 per cent of the tiger.

In June, the measures to protect endangered wild cat, the Supreme Court of India ordered a ban on tourism in the “core zone” of more than 40 nature reserves for tigers in the country.

Government has been struggling for decades, though often failing, to protect tigers from poachers, who supply cross-border trade that will arouse the tiger, and the loss of animal habitat.

Asset Finance Companies Predict Increase in Business Lending

New research from the Finance & Leasing Association has revealed that asset finance companies are cautiously optimistic about business lending over the next 12 months in spite of the troubles many firms have experienced in recent months.

Its most recent quarterly Asset Finance Confidence Survey, which questioned senior executives of the FLA’s Asset Finance Division earlier this month, found that 74% are expecting an increase in business lending in the next three months. This is 6% higher than the corresponding study undertaken three months ago.

An even higher proportion expect a rise in lending over the next 12 months (77%) in the hope UK businesses find it easier to access the funding they need in order to grow and therefore boost the economic recovery.

The figures follow other recent news from the FLA that its members advanced £2.9 billion of new finance to SMEs in the final quarter of 2011 for investment in equipment and machinery. This, coupled with the latest figures from the Asset Based Finance Association revealing £16 billion was released to its members’ clients in Q3 2011, demonstrates just how effective asset based finance has been at plugging the funding gap that Project Merlin has failed to fill, according to Bank of England statistics.

As a result, 72% of those surveyed expect a slight improvement in domestic economic conditions over the next 12 months, which is up 2% on the previous survey, which was conducted in November 2011.

Geraldine Kilkelly, Head of Research and Chief Economist at the Finance & Leasing Association, said: “The cautious optimism shown in the survey reinforces our message to the Government that asset finance has a key role to play in improving the supply of credit to SMEs.

“Asset finance helps small businesses get the equipment they need to compete in tough trading conditions. It is an affordable alternative source of finance for a huge variety of products and equipment.”

Asset finance includes facilities such as hire purchase and finance leases, enabling businesses to purchase new equipment, plant and machinery to support growth without tying up valuable cash – a significant challenge facing the UK’s SME community in recent times.

While hire purchase allows firms to hire an asset from a leasing company in return for regular payments, giving your company full ownership of the asset following the completion of the hire contract, finance leases allow businesses to use an asset a specific time period.

The Easiest and Most Successful Ways to Finance Your Business

In order to succeed as a business you need a definitive and solid understanding of your business’ finances. While many new small businesses are often times financed out of, you the owner’s pockets, most of the others need some extra funds from other sources in order to get off the ground. The truth is however, you need to be smart about your choices.

You need to be selective and pretty keen when it comes to finding finance for your business. A few wrong choices and you’ll find yourself along with your business in a lot of trouble. There are several methods to finance your business especially for small businesses. Here are five places where you can find finances for your business:

  • One way to finance your business is through a business loan. Try researching the The Small Business Association for any loans available for what you are doing. They are one of the best sources of information for financing a business. Of all the sources of funding on this list, a loan will require to spend a lot of time and energy to do the legwork for it but it definitely will pay off in the long run. Make sure you have a well-written and clearly defined business plan in order to expect to be approved.
  • Have you thought about possibly utilizing your home’s equity? Obviously this only pertains to those of you who own a house but it is a viable option if you do. You basically use the equity of your home in order to finance your business and allows for a tax deduction on the interest paid. Many savvy business owners use the combination of this in order to get the business loans discussed earlier. The only downside is that the security of your home ownership is now tied into the business’s success. If the business fails, you can lose your home.
  • Another option often overlooked is the possibility of person to person lending. There are numerous personal investors out there looking to provide the appropriate funds in order to see a return on their investment. Some websites and businesses deal solely on brokering these types of deals. You can also approach friends and family members for money as well.
  • One of the hottest trends in business finance is the use of investment financing. This can found in the form of venture capital firms and business partners looking to make an investment with the hope of receiving a return on it down the road. The only problem is that finding an investment group can time consuming and the process is sometimes not that easy. You even run the risk of giving up a percentage of ownership to the investor.
  • The final option for you to choose from is the use of business credit cards. Many financial institutions will approve business with a credit card but it depends on a number of factors such as the amount of financing you need. I would only recommend this choice of financing is your business can afford to pay the high interest rates that come with

The Difference Between a Financial Advisor and a Registered Investment Advisor

According to a survey performed by the Security and Exchange Commission, most individuals are not aware of the differences between a financial advisor and a registered investment advisor. There are several key differences though, and it is important for anyone placing their trust and hard earned cash in the hands of one of these advisors to be aware. If you are considering seeking the counsel of a financial planner or investment advisor, here’s an explanation of the differences between the two.

The Financial Advisor

A financial advisor buys and sells securities on behalf of his or her client. They may set up retirement plans for individuals, or 401(k)s, IRAs, or other types of and pension programs for corporations. Financial advisers may also offer stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and assist with end of life wealth distribution plans.

 

Financial advisers have detailed knowledge in accounting, finances, and an understanding of the way the market works. Other responsibilities of the financial advisor include:

  • Instructing clients on investment opportunities
  • Keeping up with the financial market
  • Assessing the risk in an investment
  • Helping clients cope with the loss of an investment

These advisors may obtain additional certifications and continue their education in order to serve their clients better and obtain more knowledge about the ever-changing financial market.

Financial advisors, wealth managers, investment analysts, and other similar titles are often paid by receiving commissions directly related to the financial products they advise clients to purchase. Financial advisors may also charge fees for portfolio management. This can be a flat fee or a percentage of the value of the client’s investments.

The Registered Investment Advisor

A registered investment advisor has many of the same job duties as a financial advisor. However, there is one key difference between the two, and this difference can mean a lot to potential clients who are seeking help with their financial investments. This difference is what is known as fiduciary.

Investment advisors are registered and governed under the Investment Advisors Act of 1940. While some financial advisors may be simply working to push financial products to earn a commission, registered investment advisors are held to a much higher standard. Being fiduciaries, and held to a fiduciary standard, a registered investment advisor (RIA) is required to place the best interests of the client ahead of their own or the interests of any brokerage firm. RIAs avoid conflicts of interest by charging a flat fee instead of earning commissions on products sold.

When choosing between a financial advisor or a registered investment advisor, the best way to do so is by asking for a fee disclosure. If your financial advisor earns commissions and bonuses from the sale of mutual funds or other financial products, they may run into conflicts which could skew the advice provided to clients.

A registered investment advisor, held to the fiduciary standard, avoids these conflicts by setting rates according to the work completed, not according to product sales.

When it comes to protecting your wealth and your financial future, the all important first step is to know who you are dealing with. Sound, impartial financial advice is key. Who are you listening to? Is your

LPS: The Solid Indonesian Banking

The economic crisis in 1998 has hit the Indonesian banking. Some banks even liquidated since the crisis. However, Indonesian banks are now showing better resistance to the crisis.

“Bank Indonesia can be said to be one of the best in emerging markets,” said Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Deposit Insurance Corporation (LPS) Budiargo Heru, in his speech in LPS birthday party, at the Ritz Carlton, Jakarta.

Heru said the better assessment of growth performance seen banks are still able to maintain performance during the global economic conditions are uncertain.

“The resistance of the Indonesian banking sector is still good enough that can be said indicated by LPS Banking Stability Index which is still in the normal category,” said Heru.

Heru said, because the condition of both the LPS is committed to continue its efforts to keep the banks in Indonesia to stay healthy. “So we believe that close monitoring and strict disciplinary action from the regulator is still very necessary,” he said.

Rural Finance and Rural Credit

In a densely populated, metropolitan landscape it can be easy to forget that the majority of India is rural. Finance companies have recognised the distinctive needs of pastoral India and designed schemes exclusively for this sector.

Rural finance is a line of credit specifically intended for the requirements of the agricultural industry. Ranging from mortgage assistance to land development and farming equipment, these credit plans are a significant aspect of rural and semi-urban support. In a country like India, where agriculture continues to play a central role, farming finance is a service closely related to the continued progress of the country.

A number of banks and finance companies have begun to specialise in offering credit to farmers. Appreciated as a key impetus in poverty reduction, this type of support can greatly assist regional development and growth. The creation of a business model that takes the unique needs of non-urban India into account, along with the unique challenges, is the key to success for companies working within this field.

The customer seeking rural credit is often at a lower position on the economic scale. Agricultural assistance must concentrate more on future earning power than the borrower’s current position. As with any loan, the lender should reasonably demonstrate a capacity to repay the amount borrowed, but in the case of credit for farmers, providers are often dealing with lower income groups. Understanding this customer is essential.

Finance in this sector has the added benefit of supporting further work in regional areas. As banks and financial services continue to extend their services into rural India they are generating employment in the vicinity. This employment ensures that customers can relate to the local face of the institution. It also represents a significant basis for skill development.

The conditions surrounding rural business are never constant. Ruined crops, bad monsoon seasons and natural disasters are just some of the ever present, largely uncontrollable factors. Those offering services in this area must commit to supporting their customers through both turbulent and growth patch of time. If this can be achieved, rural finance has a huge market to work in.

You know, the estimated world population reached six billion at the end of 1999 and 2020, the figure jumped to eight billion! Whether the government can provide jobs for so many people? In fact, the ‘privatization’ became so popular in the past decade, suggesting that they “wash hands” of the task of creating a horrible job.
Another fact, mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring in the private sector more often led to mass layoffs. So who gets the burden of creating jobs? it must bear the burden of its own INDIVIDUAL. Every person, create your own job! Every person, ready or not, conditions pushed into entrepreneurship.

Be aware, this phenomenon. That entrepreneurship, which is not recognized a quarter century ago, when it is taught as a subject at universities around the world. In the United States alone, hundreds of colleges to teach it. Is this really a new phenomenon?

Not exactly so. We are actually born as entrepreneurs. Courage, creativity, and initiative – it is the nature of a person from birth. That’s natural, inherent within you! Living matter, make it appear and the ability to work optimally! Baby anywhere in the world, before they are flooded with the values ​​and rules of society, without the need to take a seminar on “run”, he learned to walk up to be.

The Importance of AR Financing Services

Companies that provide accounts receivable financing, or AR financing, will offer services at different levels. Often you are expecting to receive services that compensate for the amount of money you are paying for the service. For this reason, you should ponder what is important for you and your business before choosing an A R factoring company. You should do a thorough investigation of which Commercial Financing Companies you would like to work with.

There are AR Financing firms of all kinds. There are the ones that charge low fees but provide bad service. If you choose low fees over service you may end up waiting on the phone for hours on end, or talk to someone that does not really care to solve your problem. The truth is, the reason why they offer low fees is because they have bad service. Good service is not a priority for them. This is why you should not compromise the quality of the service just for the low fees. The costs eventually add up and end up being much higher.

Fortunately, there are AR Financing firms that provide good service. These firms are usually smaller and more difficult to find because they may not advertise much. However, they may be your best option. Because they are small, they provide more personal assistance and are easy to reach. It is best to speak with a Commercial Finance Broker as they will know who is the best lenders for you type of business, plus most often they are paid by the lender so there is no additional costs to your company.

When your budget for AR Financing is limited, low fees can be enticing. Moreover, you are resorting to Financing because you want to increase cash flow not spend a lot. However, it is important to know that there is a price to small service that you may be overlooking. The companies that opt for the lower fees, are frequently disappointed of their decision specially when they are at the early stages of a long term or short term commitment. Here paying more, pays off.

Finally, it is important to point out that the process of selection an AR Financing company is not easy. We advise you to consider first the level of service you wish to have, the one you need, and the one you can afford and if the difference is only of a few dollars a month choose the one that provides the best service. You need to analyze carefully and look at all sides of the equation when making a decision if Factoring is ideal for you business.

Options on Financing a Business Via P O Financing and Inventory Financing

It’s a good news/bad news situation at its classic best. Your firm has the ability to receive orders or contracts but you are challenged with restrictions or unavailability of inventory and PO (purchase order) financing. Financing a business based on assets such as inventory and orders in coming has never been more of a challenge in Canada.

When we speak to clients we advise there is no one method that seems to handle all inventory and P O finance challenges. But the good news is that via a variety of effective business financing tools you can employ you are in a position to generate working capital and cash flow from these two asset categories. Let’s examine some real world strategies that have made sense for clients.

The root of the problem is simply, you have orders and contracts, but those will potentially be lost to a competitor. Conventional wisdom is that you go to your bank and ask for financing to support inventory and purchase orders. As you may have experienced, we aren’t big believers in conventional wisdom on that matter!

However, utilizing a convention purchase order funding source does allow you to purchase product and get your suppliers paid, thus facilitating you ability to deliver to your customers.

One of the main benefits that many clients don’t realize is that inventory financing and P O financing don’t necessarily require your firm to have a long or strong credit history; the focus on structuring the transaction is around the inventory being financing and the general credit worthiness of your client, who will be paying yourself or the inventory or P O financing firm

The overall process is fairly simply and easy to understand when it comes to putting the transaction together successfully. On receipt of your confirmed purchase order your supplier is paid via cash or a letter of credit. Your firm of course completes final shipment of the product, which typically involves some additional time on your firms part. On shipment and of course payment from your customer the transaction is in effect settled. In a true pure po financing scenario the P O funder is paid immediately on your invoicing of the product. That is facilitated by your firm selling the receivable via a factoring type transaction as soon as you have generated the invoice.

There are always limitations to this type of financing – so things we look for early in the transaction are the ultimate remarket ability of your product in case there is a transaction risk. Naturally, as we stated, the overall credit worthiness of your customer is key, his receipt of goods and payment in effect closes the transaction.

Inventory financing and PO financing are generally more expensive than traditional financing, due mainly to the significant transaction risk that the lender takes. Therefore we strong recommend that your firm has solid gross margins in the 25% range to cover the associated costs of a po financing, inventory financing transaction that also factors in the time it takes to get paid by your client, as that typically adds 30-60 days on

Trends in Entrepreneurship 1000 Last Year

It has been predicted that over the past 25 years, individual bureaucrats will be defensive, looking for ways to maintain existing security status of their living standards, while the entrepreneurial individual who will be offensive, seeking to enlarge their opportunities, their skills and increasing their quality of life .

A Look at One of the Top Tax and Finance Service Franchises

In the midst of a recession when you lose your job or think you might be on the verge of getting a pink slip, you might have a thought about being self-employed. Some folks are so inclined to act on such thoughts, but what type of business would you start and how do you know it will succeed?

Perhaps this is why many turn to franchising as a vehicle to own their own business. In a recession franchises are not completely immune, although they do fair much better than independent small businesses in the middle of the storm. One franchise category that our Think Tank identified seems to be rather recession proof.

They say there is nothing guaranteed in life except for death and taxes and so, why not look there for your next franchise opportunity. If you do not see yourself running a funeral home, maybe a tax and finance service might be the ticket. Recently, we interviewed a successful Jackson Hewitt franchisee, Bob Bradach in California.

While other businesses were laying-off their workers in the area, Bob was adding more employees to meet demand. How does Bob do it? Well, he tells us he stays involved in the community and that he picked a solid industry to participate in. Finally, he said he picked one of the top tax preparation and finance service franchises; Jackson Hewitt.

Turns out Mr. Bradach also joined his franchisor’s National Advisory Council and is the epitome of a team player. This just goes to show you that even in a recession there is opportunity in chaos, and franchising just may be where your next opportunity is waiting. Think on this.
