Need Structured Financing Assistance? We Can Help!

Structured financing may seem very complex to those who are unfamiliar with the business world, but in reality, it's easier to understand than you might think. Structured financing is a generalized term that is used to define a sector of finance that is created to transfer risk and avoid certain complex laws. The reasons behind structured financing are varied.

2012 Market Predictions From Top Portfolio Managers

With the first quarter of 2012 upon us and the stock market showing no signs of leveling out, companies are looking to portfolio management professionals to protect their investments against market volatility. Just a few months after these corporate finance professionals issued their predictions for 2012, some of their prophecies are already coming true.

Daptiv Portfolio Management, Seattle, WA:
Financial experts at Daptiv predicted that business uncertainty would continue, becoming the "new normal." They also predicted that portfolio managers would begin to take a more holistic view of a company’s assets. Using PPM tools to manage end-to-end service portfolios, product delivery, application lifecycle management, and change management programs, companies could face a more diversified, volatile marketplace in a variety of new ways, leaving no stone unturned.

But while companies struggle to keep heads above water in a still-recovering economy, portfolio managers will need to re-establish their worth. This will involve managers building in accountability guidelines and creating adaptable planning frameworks so that companies not only see what you have done, but also where you are going at all times.

BOK Financial Corp, Tulsa, OK: Jim Huntzinger, Executive VP and CEO of BOK Financial told Tulsa World that he foresees continued volatility for the market in 2012. "There were 49 times last year that 90 percent of the daily trading volume was either up or down," he said. "A normal year might find five days that the volume is all in one direction."

Huntzinger notes that many investors have become risk-averse and, while 2009 and 2010 were great return years, many investors missed them because they had moved money over to bonds. Look for that to continue on a broad scale. But portfolio managers believe that, even with this volatility, they can help customers find less risky investments to get some investors back in the game in 2012.

Most Successful Mergers And Acquisitions Of All Time

While many marriages end in divorce, people continue to seek out a partner to spend the rest of their lives with. The same is true of mergers and acquisitions. While many fail, the successful ones give corporate finance professionals and business tycoons hope for the future; that the marriage of two companies can repair a broken bottom line, for better or worse.

To celebrate these successful unions, Rasmussen College compiled a list of the most (and least) successful mergers of all time. What went right, and why can't all business transactions have their happy-ever-after?

Disney-Pixar While Disney was already releasing Pixar films before the merger, the marriage allowed Pixar resources and merchandising they were never able to achieve before. This explains why films like Toy Story and Finding Nemo can't match the smash hit Cars when it comes to merchandising. Disney has released 2 Pixar films a year since the merger, a production level unheard of before Disney came into the picture.

Sirius-XM Radio Acquisition finance professionals and analysts thought Sirius and XM would become the Coke and Pepsi of the satellite radio world. But on July 29, 2008, the two companies joined forces, effectively creating a monopoly over the world of digital radio. With huge assists from stars like Howard Stern, Martha Stewart and Oprah, both companies saw unprecedented business as many car companies made XM/Sirius an option on all cars they sell. Once the two companies were able to get around FCC licensing restrictions, the merger was instantly successful and still has no equal.

Exxon-Mobile: This $81 billion deal forged in 1999 created the world-wide leader in oil production. Today the company is leading the charge on many energy breakthroughs that can keep the company in business long after oil.
