Neil Allan McEwen, 84, of Crosslake, Minnesota, passed away with his family present on Saturday, March 12, 2022. He is survived by his beloved wife Maxine (née Lysfjord), son Gregory, daughter Gretchen Felton ( Brian), grandchildren Joia, Cody and Holden, and siblings Elizabeth Deere and Ortie Kinshella. He is predeceased by his parents Lorne and Josephine McEwen, his son Garth and his siblings Doris West, Helen Erickson, Peter McEwen, Lorne McEwen and Ruth Moose.

Neil’s life and passions were deeply rooted in the people, places and values ​​of Northwest Minnesota. Born March 19, 1937 in Humboldt, Minnesota, he attended school there before graduating from Hallock High School in 1954. Neil then took a job on the Great Northern Railroad, sparking a lifelong love life for the railroads which he continued by collecting souvenirs, traveling by train. and sharing railway stories. In 1956 Neil and Maxine married and began their 65 year journey together.

Neil attended the University of North Dakota, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and then a law degree. While serving on the editorial board of the university’s law journal, Neil wrote a scholarly article on antitrust that informed a Supreme Court ruling on an impending railroad merger.

Neil served the people of Northwest Minnesota through zealous advocacy and dedicated community service. He forged a legal career by helping others overcome challenges, right injustices and achieve prosperity. For over 30 years, Neil built and operated an extensive law practice in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, while serving for a time as the Pennington County District Attorney. Throughout this time, Neil has held positions of leadership and influence in the area, leading the Pennington County DFL party and serving on the Church Council of Redeemer Lutheran Church, the Thief River Falls Public Library Board and of the Thief River Falls Lions Club. Neil’s legacy as a lawyer and community leader lies in the lives he improved through generosity, determination, humility and an unwavering sense of right and wrong.

Neil was passionate and skilled in sports, especially curling and golf. He has successfully competed in tournaments and tournaments throughout Northwestern Minnesota and beyond. In retirement, he continued to find joy on the course, whether as a player or a spectator.

At the center of Neil’s life, however, were his family and friends. He was a caring son and brother, supportive husband, devoted father, adoring grandparent and loyal friend. Whether in Thief River Falls, Crosslake, Mt. Dora, Florida or Sun Lakes, Arizona, the McEwen home has always been open to Neil and Maxine’s large circle of friends and family. After Neil’s early retirement, the couple enjoyed more than 25 years to pursue their common interests together. They have traveled extensively, both in the United States in motorhomes and on the European continent with extended stays in Sweden and Switzerland. Neil and Maxine treasured close friendships and loved nothing better than to hop in the car to drive around and visit some of the many friends they had acquired over the years. With Maxine, Neil made it a priority to be present in the lives of those he loved, and his impact on them was far greater than he could have ever known.

A memorial service will be held May 11, 2022 at Crosslake Lutheran Church. There will be a gathering of family and friends at 12:00 p.m., and the service will begin at 1:00 p.m., followed by lunch. A livestream of the service will be shared on www.crosslakelutheran.com. Memorial contributions may be made to Crosslake Lutheran Church, Crosslake, Minnesota.

Arrangements are entrusted to the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Crosslake.

The White House calls for a thorough review of the government’s approach to cryptocurrency http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/the-white-house-calls-for-a-thorough-review-of-the-governments-approach-to-cryptocurrency/ Wed, 16 Mar 2022 10:08:12 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/the-white-house-calls-for-a-thorough-review-of-the-governments-approach-to-cryptocurrency/

On March 9, President Biden issued an executive order on ensuring responsible development of digital assets. Here are some key points to remember:

  • The order aims to secure the United States’ position as a leader in the rapidly growing blockchain and cryptocurrency industry while containing risk to consumers and the financial system itself.
  • The long-awaited order pushes for a whole-of-government approach to cryptocurrency oversight and tasks various federal agencies with developing policy proposals on a range of topics, including a possible digital currency issued by the US central bank and regulatory safeguards proposed to protect consumers and respond to risks related to climate change.
  • The order may lead to much-needed regulatory clarity regarding various classes of digital assets, as the order requires the Secretary of the Treasury to analyze the particular characteristics and risks of various types of digital assets and provide recommendations. to deal with these risks.
  • The order calls on federal agencies to report on illicit financial activities conducted using digital assets and the risks posed to national security by criminal activities related to digital assets.
  • Many hailed the order, saying it indicates Washington is becoming more comfortable with cryptocurrencies and offers the promise of greater regulatory clarity after a careful assessment of risks and opportunities within the industry.

The order recognizes the extraordinary growth of the digital asset market in recent years and the interest of the United States in being at the forefront of innovation in this area. The order underscores that the administration is interested in exploring ways in which the administration can strengthen U.S. leadership in the global financial system through digital asset technology. The order importantly recognizes that such technology can promote responsible financial innovation, expand access to safe and affordable financial services for the unbanked and underbanked, and reduce the cost of remittances and transfers. national and cross-border payments. It is therefore significant in that it signals that the United States will not seek to outright ban cryptocurrency technology. On the contrary, the order recognizes the vast untapped potential of this technology and the need for the United States to play a leadership role as society moves toward widespread adoption of this technology.

At the same time, the president acknowledged that this technology could pose risks to consumers, investors and businesses in the absence of key regulatory safeguards. The order emphasized that the administration’s primary policy goals are to protect consumers, investors and businesses and to mitigate the illicit financial and national security risks posed by the misuse of this technology.

To that end, President Biden has directed various agencies and departments to address key issues related to this technology and provide policy and regulatory recommendations by the end of the year. The order notably does not require an agency to adopt or implement any specific rules or regulations at this time. Rather, it takes the more modest and prudent step of calling for a series of reports that will allow the administration to develop a whole-of-government approach to capitalizing on this technology while mitigating the risks posed in the absence of regulatory safeguards.

Specifically, the order provides that the following actions must be taken within 90, 180 or 210 days to:

  • Explore a US Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) by ordering:
    • The Secretary of the Treasury is to submit a report on the future of currency and payment systems, including an analysis of the potential implications of a US CBDC for (i) economic growth and stability, (ii) inclusion financial, (iii) national security and (iv) financial crime and the risk that a CBDC could displace existing currencies and undermine the financial centrality of the United States.
    • The Attorney General must submit a report assessing whether legislative changes would be required to issue a US CBDC and submit a legislative proposal based on consideration of the report submitted by the Secretary of the Treasury on the potential implications of a US CBDC.
    • The Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the United States Chief Technology Officer must submit a technical assessment of the technology infrastructure, capacity, and expertise needed to facilitate and support the introduction of a CBDC system, if applicable.
  • Mitigate illicit finance and national security risks posed by criminal activities related to digital assets by ordering:
    • The Attorney General is to submit a report on the role of national law enforcement in detecting, investigating and prosecuting criminal activity related to digital assets. The report should include recommendations on regulatory or legislative measures and on how to strengthen international law enforcement cooperation to detect, investigate and prosecute these criminal activities.
  • Protect U.S. consumers, investors, and businesses as well as U.S. and global financial stability while promoting U.S. leadership in technology innovation by directing:
    • The Secretary of the Treasury is to submit a report on the implications of the developments and adoption of digital assets and changes in the infrastructures of financial markets and payment systems for American consumers, investors, businesses and for economic growth fair. The order directs the secretary to address the conditions that would drive the mass adoption of different types of digital assets and the risks and opportunities such growth could present for U.S. consumers, investors, and businesses. The order also directs the report to include policy recommendations, including potential regulatory and legislative measures to protect consumers, investors and businesses and expand access to safe and affordable financial services.
    • The Secretary of the Treasury is to submit a report outlining the specific financial stability risks and regulatory gaps posed by various types of digital assets, including the particular characteristics of various types of digital assets, and providing recommendations for addressing them. these risks, including additional or adjusted regulation and oversight, as well as new legislation.
    • The Secretary of Commerce will establish a framework to improve U.S. economic competitiveness and leverage digital asset technology.
  • Ensure the responsible development and use of digital assets in relation to climate change by leading:
    • The Director of the Office of Science and Technology to submit a report on the links between distributed ledger technology and short, medium and long-term economic and energy transitions, the potential of these technologies to hinder or advance the climate change efforts at home and abroad, and the impacts of these technologies on the environment.

This order marks a promising next step toward regulatory clarity for U.S. businesses, which will enable greater innovation and participation in this burgeoning industry.

REIT outflows surpass 2008 global financial crisis as Fed policy shift nears http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/reit-outflows-surpass-2008-global-financial-crisis-as-fed-policy-shift-nears/ Mon, 14 Mar 2022 09:25:00 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/reit-outflows-surpass-2008-global-financial-crisis-as-fed-policy-shift-nears/

The rate at which foreign portfolio investors (REITs) are selling their holdings is one of the worst the Indian market has seen. Analysis by brokerage firm ICICI Securities shows that total 12-month (TTM) REIT sales of $36 billion is higher than the $28 billion recorded during the 2008 global financial crisis.

Foreign investors have stepped up selling since October, expecting the US Federal Reserve to make a hawkish turn due to inflation in the United States. The sell-off accelerated after Russia attacked Ukraine on Feb. 24 and caused a spike in global commodity prices, especially oil. Since October, REITs have taken nearly $20 billion out of domestic equities, while net sales over the past month are around $9 billion.

However, despite strong sales, domestic markets have been relatively resilient. Since its peak in October, the benchmark Sensex has lost up to 15%. It is currently trading within 10% of the October high of 61,766.

The impact of the sale of REITs during the 2008 crisis was worse, causing the benchmark Sensex index to fall nearly 70% from around 20,800 in January 2008 to 8,500 in October 2008.

The relatively shallow correction was driven by strong inflows from domestic institutional investors (DIIs), which injected $28 billion on a 12-month basis.

As a result, net institutional outflows from the TTM at $8.2 billion (FPI + DII flows) are currently lower than the peak 2008 crisis exit of $8.6 billion, according to ICICI Securities. Additionally, if REIT investments in the primary market (mainly IPOs) are added, TTM outflows drop to $18.3 billion.

The strong inflow of DII is explained by a sustained inflow into mutual funds (MF), in particular the route of systematic investment plans (SIP). On a monthly basis, SIPs are seeing inflows of over Rs 10,000 crore.

“We are seeing consistent buying by domestic investors in the face of unprecedented selling by REITs during rare and extreme fear events seen in recent years (covid pandemic and global crisis due to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict ). This is a clear positive surprise and heralds the structural deepening of domestic equity savings in India,” said Vinod Karki, equity strategist at ICICI Securities.

“Such aggressive buying behavior during falling stock prices by domestic investors should result in better long-term outcomes for their portfolios compared to buying in a phase of high market optimism, and so triggering a virtuous cycle. However, the corollary of the above is that the expectations of finding huge stock price bargains seen in previous REIT sell-offs will be disproved going forward,” Karki said.

[Funding alert] JIFFY.ai Raises $53M in Series B Funding Round Led by Eight Roads Ventures http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/funding-alert-jiffy-ai-raises-53m-in-series-b-funding-round-led-by-eight-roads-ventures/ Wed, 09 Mar 2022 09:34:43 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/funding-alert-jiffy-ai-raises-53m-in-series-b-funding-round-led-by-eight-roads-ventures/

Palo Alto, California enterprise automation platform Inasmuch asJiffy.aiInasmuch as raised $53 million in its Series B funding round led by a Fidelity-backed investment company Inasmuch asEight Roads VenturesInasmuch as. The round also saw the participation of venture capital funds Inasmuch asiron pillarInasmuch as, R squared and returning investors Inasmuch asNexus Venture PartnersInasmuch as, Reaction Capital and Rebright Partners.

The company last raised $18 million in a Series A funding round led by Nexus Venture Partners in June 2020.

She plans to use the capital to evolve its sales and marketing and advance its HyperApp platform that simplifies business process automation using artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML), and advanced analytics.

Founded in 2018, JIFFY.ai was spun off from its parent company Paanini to develop an integrated automation and application development platform for the fintech industry. JIFFY.ai’s intelligent automation platform is currently used by companies in banking and financial services, media and advertising, manufacturing, telecommunications, finance and accounting, and travel.

It helps them with end-to-end business process automation and lifecycle management solutions to increase efficiency and reduce OPEX costs. JIFFY.ai counts the United States as its primary market and employs over 150 people in four countries.

“This funding will advance our mission to help build the autonomous businesses of the future by applying artificial intelligence and automation to transform business operations,” said Babu Sivadasan, co-founder and CEO of JIFFY. ai, in a statement released by the company.

He added, “We are focused on strengthening our intelligent automation platform, which will allow organizations to compose, configure, monitor and sustain themselves as autonomous businesses. Using the platform, they will be able to assemble automated business capabilities that can learn and adapt to changing needs with little or no additional resources and operational expenses. This investment is a validation of JIFFY.ai’s continued progress as a disruptor in the RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and no-code space. »

JIFFY.ai competes with the largest incumbents in the RPA space such as UiPath and Automation Anywhere.

“Business process automation has become an integral pillar of companies’ digital transformation agenda, especially post-pandemic. JIFFY.ai’s approach to AI-based automation is unique with an integrated, modular and intelligent solution that has proven superior with faster and more sustainable ROI,” said Shweta Bhatia, Partner and Head of India Technology Investments at Eight Road Ventures, in the statement.

According to a Gartner report, the need for business-driven hyper-automation will be one of the top three drivers of low-code adoption in 2022.

A recent NASSCOM report stated that Indian IT service providers generated nearly $400 million in revenue for FY 2021-22 from low-code and no-code software solutions, with growth potential to reach a $4 billion revenue stream by 2025.

The pandemic has also seen an acceleration of investment in companies responding to digital transformation journeys.

(Reuters) – U.S. stocks rose in volatile trading on Tuesday as investors gauged rapid developments around the Ukraine crisis as the United States banned Russian imports of oil and other energy amid the invasion .

Energy stocks soared 1.9%, extending a seven-session rally, as President Joe Biden announced the ban, underscoring strong bipartisan support for a move he said would drive prices higher energy in the United States.

Britain has said it will phase out imports of Russian petroleum and petroleum products by the end of 2022.

The United States is not a major buyer of Russian oil, but the ban is likely to pressure its allies to wean their economies off Russian energy.

“You have a situation where investors who were caught overweight tech and underweight energy are now catching up on the back of soaring commodity prices,” said John Petrides. , portfolio manager at Tocqueville Asset Management in New York.

“The idea that the economy will slow down tremendously on the margins and that we may not get a commensurate drop in interest rate expectations because we have to fight inflation. Those two opposing forces make investors’ game right now,” said Josh Wein, portfolio manager at Hennessy Funds.

Six of the 11 major S&P sectors advanced, with financials advancing 1.1%, after falling for three straight sessions.

The banks index added a trailing 2.4%, which climbed above 1.86% after hitting a two-month low on Monday. ()

Stocks have struggled since the start of the year as concerns over the Russia-Ukraine crisis deepened a selloff initially fueled by expectations of the Federal Reserve tightening monetary policy to fight inflation.

The Nasdaq ended Monday down 20.1% from its record close on Nov. 19, confirming that the tech-heavy index was in a bear market, by a widely used definition.

As of 12:33 p.m. ET, the rose 445.47 points, or 1.36%, to 33,262.85, the gained 47.42 points, or 1.13%, to 4,248.51 and gained 207.06 points, or 1.61%, to 13,038.02.

NSE or BSE, which has a better model for buying US stocks http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/nse-or-bse-which-has-a-better-model-for-buying-us-stocks/ Sun, 06 Mar 2022 19:50:07 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/nse-or-bse-which-has-a-better-model-for-buying-us-stocks/

Last week saw a flurry of announcements from the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and BSE-owned entities in GIFT City, Gujarat regarding the availability of international shares for Indian residents.

NSE owns NSE-IFSC while BSE owns India-INX, both of which operate at GIFT City IFSC. However, the two have chosen radically different models by allowing resident Indians to invest in foreign stocks. NSE has created unsecured certificates of deposit in GIFT City, while India INX, owned by BSE, merely acts as an intermediary platform (rather than an exchange). India INX investors transfer money directly from India to the US or other foreign countries without ever touching the IFSC itself.

What are the two models?

The NSE IFSC has created unsecured certificates of deposit for eight large US companies within the IFSC and has announced its intention to create such certificates for 50 of the largest US futures companies. An unsecured certificate of deposit is created by a market maker who purchases the underlying stocks in the United States and issues the certificate against them. Therefore, custody of the receipts is held in GIFT City and Indian investors transfer money to GIFT City to exchange them.

This can provide some level of regulatory comfort for Indians who are unfamiliar with foreign brokers or foreign regulators. On the other hand, there are costs and fees involved such as the costs required to create the receipts in question, to open and maintain demat accounts in the IFSC, and the spreads that market makers will make. Additionally, there is a limited universe available, only 50 stocks of major US companies.

Show full picture


India INX, owned by BSE, has a link with Interactive Brokers, an American broker. Its clients have access to the full universe of stocks and ETFs listed in the US and other markets, rather than the top 50.

According to India INX, it will not collect any fees from customers who approach it directly and it has negotiated favorable currency transfer rates for its customers. It has also linked up with 75 brokers to allow access to their clients. This mode is similar to what fintechs such as Stockal, Vested Finance, Globalise and Winesta are pursuing. India INX, in this case, is just acting as an intermediary and not as an exchange.

Although both models allow for “split investing”, meaning you can buy less than one share of a company, the models are different. NSE Certificates of Deposit trade in certain specific ratios, which reduces the ticket size for each share.

For example, for an Apple stock, the ticket size would drop from $166.23 to $6.64 (at the time of writing) given the 1:25 ratio. Also in the ESB model, fractional buying is possible without any ratio. For example, you can buy fractional shares even for a few dollars. NRIs can trade in both the NSE and BSE models and they may not be subject to the LRS (Liberalized Funds Transfer System) restrictions that govern Indian residents on derivatives and intraday trading.

What is better?

It depends on the needs of each investor. In the NSE model, your money does not directly leave Indian shores and your transactions take place in the city of GIFT. The city of GIFT is legally considered a separate jurisdiction, but is ultimately subject to the Indian Constitution and Parliament. The receipts are issued against shares held in the United States, but that, in a sense, happens at the end. If you don’t want to invest in products other than major US stocks, the NSE model may be sufficient for you.

The BSE model is more suitable for someone who wants the full range of the US stock market, including exchange-traded funds (ETFs). In the BSE model, you also have access to the liquidity of the underlying market (say the US stock market) and you don’t have to rely on market makers. However, you end up transferring money out of India and run the risk of problems in the destination country where you are investing.

Franklin Templeton’s Emerging Markets Equities team explores new innovations and long-term investment opportunities in emerging markets.

Emerging markets have seen many changes over the past two decades, and the opportunities available to investors have also evolved and expanded. Our Emerging Markets Equity team met recently to discuss the innovations we are seeing and why we think the long-term outlook looks fertile from an economic growth and market perspective. Watch the video below for our ideas.

Here are some highlights of the trends and opportunities we see.

  • We believe the inflection point is now. The last 18 months have accelerated the use of technology on both the consumer and business side – whether in e-commerce, digital banking or clean energy.
  • Companies that don’t have sunk capital in legacy business models are often able to use technological innovation to leapfrog traditional business models and deliver what consumers want.
  • Today, one of the biggest themes we see in Asia is mobility and the electrification of the transport sector, including battery production.
  • The Asia-Pacific region is also home to the world’s second largest pharmaceutical market, China. The penetration rate for biologic drugs in China is less than 20%, less than half of what we see in developed markets like the United States.1
  • In Latin America, online retail is a big opportunity that we see, especially in Brazil. Online retail penetration in Brazil is around 10%, half that of the US and around a third that of China and the UK.2

Emerging markets typically have young, digitally savvy populations, and in many cases their needs go unmet. There are therefore many opportunities for new players to arrive and innovate.

In India, for example, there are about 800 million people under the age of 35. As investors, this creates opportunities not only in technology companies, but also in areas such as financial services and aspirational products like education and luxury goods. We are excited about what the future holds.

We believe the pandemic period has catalyzed change, innovation and increased focus on technology. It is a very interesting time to observe today’s emerging world.

We believe that the breadth of opportunity, growth, innovation, sustainability of business models and much stronger institutional resilience compared to decades past create an attractive future for emerging markets.

What are the risks ?

All investments involve risk, including possible loss of principal. The value of investments can go down as well as up, and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Stock prices fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and dramatically, due to factors affecting individual companies, particular industries or sectors, or general market conditions. Investments in foreign securities involve special risks, including currency fluctuations, economic instability and political developments. Investing in emerging markets, of which frontier markets are a subset, involves increased risks associated with the same factors, in addition to those associated with the small size of these markets, their lesser liquidity and the absence of executives. legal, political, commercial and social established to support securities markets. Since these frameworks are generally even less developed in frontier markets, as well as various factors including the increased potential for extreme price volatility, illiquidity, trade barriers and exchange controls, the risks associated with emerging markets are amplified in frontier markets. To the extent that a strategy focuses on particular countries, regions, industries, sectors or types of investments from time to time, it may be subject to greater risks of adverse developments in those areas of interest than a strategy that invests in a wider variety of countries, regions, industries, sectors or investments.
