David Osio, founder and CEO of the Davos Financial Group and Davos Real Estate Group (REG), is proud to present the company’s new CAP calculator app for mobile devices. Done in partnership with Tecknolution and spearheaded by Osio’s colleague Gerard González, this app hit the market just a couple months ago and aims to make clients’ tasks for calculating real estate investments much easier. The Davos Financial Group is working on more apps to streamline the user experience when making large investment decisions, or looking for guidance in investment strategies.

Basically, this app takes into account all the costs and fees that go into purchasing property, either for residential or commercial use, and adds them up with expected property income returns such as renting or leasing costs, and shows clients where they can expect the value to be at years down the road. This app is going to be integrated along with the other apps, into the Davos Real Estate Agent contact form and allow users to submit real estate history reports to the agent. Currently this app is available to US clients, but Davos REG is working to bring it and the next series of apps overseas to Europe and Asia, as the company is in the midst of forming new alliances with new foreign real estate agencies.

David Osio is both a businessman and philanthropist who has spent over 30 years of his career in both investment advising and real estate buying, as well as law and corporate banking. David Osio has lived most of his life in Venezuela, where he got his undergrad in finance and banking from the University of Andres Bello in Caracas. After graduating from there, he started out as a legal financial advisor for the Venezuelan law firm MGO, where he advised clients on how to manage funds in compliance with Venezuela’s laws.

Investment banking is gaining traction in the recent past. There is a need for investment banking services in the market as more firms seek strategic advantage, capitalization, and industry stranglehold.

George Soros Major Contributor

George Soros has a long history of donating large sums of money to the Democratic party in order to defeat what he believes to be the oppressive Republican party. Back in 2004, Soros gave a then unprecedented amount of money to the Democratic nominee in order to defeat George W. Bush. While his donation of $25 million dollars at the time did not provide the win for the Democratic party on bloomberg.com, it sent a message that Soros was not afraid to do whatever he could in order to defeat his political enemies.

George Soros is a billionaire with a net-worth of approximately $25 billion dollars. This allows him opportunities to both vocally and fiscally support the Democratic nominee of the election when he feels necessary. The election of 2016 provided a perfect chance for him to re-enter the realm of political charity.

In his political ideology, George Soros is very liberal. He supports realistic and humane immigration reform and progressive criminal justice reform. In addition, he supports tolerance for all religions, not just the majority.

This is radically different compared to the major political points of the Republican party. This year, the major candidates throughout the election cycle spouted plans and policies that, to Soros, were hateful and intolerant. He felt he had to do something to promote the Democratic agenda.

As a result, this election cycle, Soros has donated more than $25 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign. In addition, he regularly donates to her peers and causes that are supported by the Democratic party. Looking at the record, you can see the wide variety of causes that Soros has donated to.

First, Soros donated $7 million to a Super PAC called Priorities USA Action who are vocal supporters of Clinton. Next, he gave $2 million to American Bridge 21st Century, which specializes in opposition research. $5 million was donated to Immigrant Voters Win that attempts to increase the frequency of Hispanic voters. He also donated $5 million to a nonprofit focused on fighting voter restriction laws.

Overall, Soros has donated to many different groups in order to boost the Democratic agenda against Donald Trump.

Soros is a vocal Donald Trump enemy who has been noted saying that the Republican nominee is doing the work of ISIS by inciting hate and violence among the population. Like so many of his Republican peers, Donald Trump stands against many of the policies that Soros has supported for years.

Soros, however, does more than donate money. In the circle of Democrat donors, he is often cited as the most influential and vocal. Among all the major donors, he is believed to be most likely to sway other big ticket donors for the Democrat agenda.

Global Rights Advocate, Thor Havlorssen

Raised in a wealthy family which had a driver, butler, cook, bodyguard, and other servants he was always taught to respect those who worked for him.

Thor Halvorssen joined the Board of Advisors of FIRE in March 2004 When he stepped down from his previous duties.

He is the founder of the Moving Picture Institute, On Own Feet, and the Patron of the Czech-based Children’s Peace Movement.

Halvorssen regularly meets with North Korean defectors, activists, and friends of his from Silicon Valley. The stories of the defectors is always a sad one, but they are all thankful to have a better life. They help spread information and media to the citizens of the oppressed regime. They use tactics like attaching leaflets to balloons filled with helium and releasing them at the border of South Korea in the hopes that the balloons will drift to nearby cities and towns. Once in the air, the balloons are popped by a time-released acid. Other en devours include sending movies, treats and candy, bibles, and even what is purported to be photos of Kim Jong-Un’s wife in a porno. These actions are a regular part of Thor’s repertoire to give hope to North Korean citizens. Follow Halvorssen on Facebook to learn more about his causes.



Bob Reina Brings Talk Fusion to Life

Talk Fusion’s CEO Bob Reina was once just another guy with an idea. He was dreaming up ways to make his work in marketing easier when he stumbled across some data. Data showed that advertisements with videos worked much better than advertisements that relied solely upon text. Combining videos into email lists seemed like the next big idea. However, Reina quickly found out that there were no platforms that currently offered the ability to embed videos into messages. So Reina decided to get a group of developers together and thus Talk Fusion was born.

Talk Fusion is a marketing portal for those that want to push their ideas and products to entirely new levels. Talk Fusion, established by Reina, gives you the ability to put together comprehensive email lists that include professionally formatted emails with embedded videos into the body. Research shows that embedded videos lead to click-throughs which lead to, you guessed it, more potential sales and customers.

To use Talk Fusion to its maximum ability you’ll need to first come up with a video that properly sends the message that you are trying to communicate. You can create your video with as little as a webcam or you can outsource the entire operation to a professional company, either way — the choice is yours. Once you have the video ready all you need to do is navigate into the Talk Fusion portal and embed your video into your email. From there you can follow several tutorials to create a well written, researched, and focused email that can be summarily sent to those on your targeted mailing list.

As far as cost goes, Reina made sure to keep Talk Fusion affordable. All you have to do is pay a one time fee and then follow up with a small monthly fee for as long as you are using the program. There are libraries of information inside of the portal that will help you long after you get used to the Talk Fusion portal. You can take those ideas and that information with you into the future in order to make your company succeed.
