The investment banking industry has gone through some pretty dramatic changes since the 2008 financial crisis. There were events that led to this crisis and much of it was due to weaknesses in the investment banking practices up to that time. These weaknesses did not happen all of a sudden, but had been building for years. But the basics of investment bank have always been the same: They advise and assist buyers and sellers on just about anything involving financial transactions. They fully invest their own money in these dealings, buying and selling out of their own pocket to facilitate the transactions.
It is for this reason that investment bankers are very selective about the clients they accept. In addition to offering sound financial advice, investment bankers also offer services such as risk management, financial control, corporate treasury, corporate strategy, compliance, operations, and technology. The 2008 financial crisis was not the first time the investment banking industry instituted some revolutionary changes. And because of the second investment banking revolution in 2008, the investment banking industry is better than it’s ever been.
One of the best investment bankers in the world today is Martin Lustgarten. Lustgarten is a citizen of both Austria and Venezuela, using this citizenship for the benefit of huge investment projects in both countries.
And he keeps an eagle eye trained on each one of these investments. Through the years he has also trained himself to find success through thoroughness in everything. So, yeah, this has resulted in Lustgarten being an extremely busy but extremely wealthy businessman. If you are in the investment banker market, you can do no better than Lustgarten.
President Dilma Rousseff, the Leftist political leader, went from the darling of the political arena in Brazil to the villain that took from Peter to pay Paul when the country’s economy started to tank. Rousseff is Brazil’s first female president, and a loyal friend of Lulu, her predecessor. Lulu has been accused of having some shady political maneuvers in his bag of tricks as well. The Rousseff impeachment is the trial of the century in Brazil, and the smart money thinks Dilma is heading out the door. Her approval rating is in the teens.
The people are sick of her, and her left-wing policies. But as the people watched her say “I did not commit the crimes that I am unjustly accused of,” Duda Melzer is watching his ratings increase because of the extensive coverage the RBS Group is offering the people of Brazil. All of the RBS Group’s TV, and radio stations, as well as all the newspapers and magazines, are focused on the trial.
Duda Melzer knows a good story when he sees one. The Harvard-educated, Melzer has news spewing out of his mouth 24/7. He eats and breathes the media business, and the recent success of the RBS Group is due to his tenacity and knowledge. Melzer was born to be the CEO of the RBS Group. His grandfather started the company in Porto Alegre in the 1950s.
Duda bought a record company, a digital programming company, and more TV and radio stations. He changed the format in several of the TV and radio stations so they were more in sync with what the people wanted. Melzer is responsible for the success of the Olympic coverage, the Zika virus coverage, and the coverage of the Dilma Rousseff impeachment trial.
