    Famed Brazilian lawyer Bruno Fagali is known to write very interesting articles for his website blog. Recently, he wrote about the new packaging and labeling laws concerning cigarettes and other tobacco products. Here is a breakdown of what he wrote in this particular piece.

    On May 25, two new stringent rules related to ANVISA became applicable to all tobacco sales in Brazil. The cigarettes and tobacco products, according to Bruno Fagali, will no longer be able to market themselves with “cool” pictures which entice the consumer to try or to keep using their product. In fact, Bruno Fagali writes that the mere advertising of cigarettes will be reduced to almost nothing.

    Special and strongly-worded health warnings, written by government agencies, will be mandatorily appearing on each and every package of tobacco product which is sold within the country of Brazil. Fagali states this is nothing really all that new as similar laws have existed in the United States and in Canada for quite some time now.

    In an interesting spin on established marketing laws, the tobacco companies have a handful of pre-determined designs that they are allowed to use. According to poder360.com.br, they must keep track of which ones they use and for how long they use each design but are allowed to use them in rotating schedules if so desired.

    Hopefully, the powerful attorney Bruno Fagali will continue to make such interesting and informative articles. While it is clear he is quite busy with his “regular” job of defending and upholding the very laws he cherishes, it is still comforting to know that he is out there a few times a month delivering insightful scribes and sharing with the rest of the people his wisdom which he has gleaned throughout the years. Here’s to many more articles to come.

    Randal Nardone – A Trained Lawyer Turned Successful Financial Executive

    The success of Randal Nardone with the Fortress Investment Group is a tale of a trained lawyer who opted to pursue asset management path. After completing his law degree from Boston University, Nardone practiced law with the US law firm Thatcher Proffit & Wood as a Partner before focusing poking his nose in the world of finance. His steps in the field of finance and asset management made him a billionaire at 51 and continued to run one of the largest asset management firm in the world.

    Randal Nardone, who also holds B.A (Biology and English) from the University of Connecticut, began his career in the financial sector as a Principal at BlackRock Financial. Then, he joined UBS where he worked as a Managing Director. His stint at UBS lasted for one year – between May 1997 and May 1998.

    At BlackRock and UBS, Nardone had gained immense experience to help build his asset management firm. Thus, he co-founded Fortress Investment Group in 1998 alongside his colleagues Rob Kauffman and Wes Edens. The three founders assumed Principal positions of the firm and made the first investment of 400 million USD in assets. Fourteen years later, Kauffman retired to focus on his personal goals, leaving Randal Nardone and Edens as the firm’s Principals. Despite the departure of Kauffman, Fortress continued to excel since Peter Briger joined the company as a Principal and Michael Novogratz as a Fund’s Manager (both coming from Goldman Sachs).

    One of the earliest achievement by Nardone and his company was making Fortress the first equity company with private ownership to trade publicly. This was in 2007, the same year Nardone appeared in the Forbes Billionaire List at position 557. He also oversaw the expansion of Fortress interest to cover diverse areas as capital markets, operation management, asset investment, and corporate acquisitions as Fortress Group CEO.

    After the Japanese Softbank Corporation acquisition of Fortress in a deal completed in December 2017, Randal Nardone remains a Co-chair of the company’s board and oversee operations of other subsidiaries of the firm. Besides, he serves in multiple boards including Gagfah, Springleaf Holdings, New Residential Investment Corporation, and Brookdale Senior Living.

    Wes Edens is the mild-mannered co-founder and co-CEO of Fortress Investment Group. Wes Edens and his partners founded Fortress in 1998 as a private equity firm. Today it is a leading investment management firm whose scope is global. Fortress provides its investors with opportunities in permanent capital vehicles, private equity, and hedge funds.

    When it comes to investment opportunities, Wes Edens seems to have a flair for the unexpected and the unusual. When one thinks of public transit, one almost automatically assumes some form of government or quasi-governmental agency as owner. But Wes Edens Brightline passenger rail service is part of the nation’s first privately owned commuter rail system. At present, Brightline operates commuter trains between Miami, Florida, and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

    The Brightline trains are unexpectedly well appointed. They feature leather seats, wide aisles, Wi-Fi service, power outlets, and USB ports. And should a Brightline passenger want to socialize a bit, or have a bite to eat, lounges and food service are available. Nice.

    Wes Edens interests don’t end with trains, or with rehabilitating the good parts of the once decimated but essential sub-prime lending industry, they extend to sports as well. Wes is co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks basketball franchise.

    Wes Edens and Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris (Egypt’s wealthiest citizen) have agreed to make a substantial capital investment in the Aston Villa Football Club. After spending 29-years in the football’s top division — the Premier League — Aston was relegated to second-tier status in 2016. That fall was a humbling experience for the seven-time champions, but they can look forward to better days as Edens and Sawiris plan a multi-year rebuild of the troubled team’s operations.

    The Chinese businessman Tony Xia, who purchased the Aston Villa club two years ago will remain a board member and become co-chairman of the club. Under Tony Xia, Aston Villa came tantalizingly close to regaining Premier League status last year.

    Wes Edens received undergraduate degree from Oregon State University in 1986, spent some time after that in banking for Lehman Brothers. At Lehman, Wes rose to partner and managing director. His next stop was Black Rock Asset Investors. Then in 1998 he, Randal Nardone, and Rob Kauffman founded Fortress Investment Group.

    Ara Chackerian is resident of Francisco, California, whose area of interest is in the field of business. He wears many hats where he is also an angel entrepreneur, an environmentalist, and a philanthropic individual as well. Ara Chackerian is a graduate of the Florida State University from where he completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and Marketing. Mr. Chackerian has spent many years working to improve technologies in the medical field, which has seen him partner with some like-minded people to open medical facilities such as the TMS Health Solutions.

     

    Further, among the organizations that Mr. Chackerian has worked include the BMC Diagnostics where he was the founder, president, and the CEO. He also helped to find Embion/ ProviderLinks and also worked as the PSS/World Medical among other healthcare organizations. Moreover, Ara Chackerian’s love for the environment is one of his greatest strengths where he focuses on creating and promoting a sustainable environment. He has done this by establishing the Nicaragua -based farm that is known as the Limonapa Teak. The farm again employs hundreds of youths who earn a good pay from it.

     

    About Ara Chackerian’s Sentiments on First-World Country’s Health Care Worries

     

    Ara Chackerian believes that most of the first-world countries are ever worried about their healthcare due to the high costs of treatments. He gives an example of the United States where the medical costs are always increasing such that they affect the more top income earners who end up struggling to pay the bills. This especially applies to people with some of the physical conditions and chronic diseases that require regular medical treatment. Again, other first-world countries like France and Japan are also worried about how they can sustain their much-advanced healthcare systems. Check out Vimeo to see more videos.

     

    Furthermore, countries that have free health care for their citizens such as Sweden are worried about how to keep the healthcare sector adequately funded. This is because the funds are taken from the government’s budget to cater for the universal healthcare that is again advancing leading to higher bills. Nonetheless, the advancement of the health-technology has helped the general life-span to increase where people can live for many more years. On the contrary, though it is a good idea to have the universal health care for the countries with this scheme, Mr. Chackerian’s points out that there is one common complaint across of having to wait for longer days before admissions.
