Well this week was jam packed with different mutual fund meetings. We met with a guy from the AIG growth fund, who was trying to get us to partake in buying this particular fund. The scoop is… growth funds are not doing too hot as of right now. it seems that their specific market is just not hot. However the guy gaurenteed us that it was going to improve. So when my boss and i heard gaurantee, we said thank you and goodbye, because as you know there are no gaurentees in this business.
As well I was involved with setting up a persons bloomberg terminal. Bloomberg is the industries leading software-computer that effectivley and efficently allows people in the investment world to follow, research, trade, compare the different markets. With my experience from bloomberg last year from when I work their I taught this guy everything he needed to know about the machine. I set up portfolios for him, as well as created some bond, and equitiy dirivitaves for him to use. All in all I made him about an extra 100 k a year from the benefit that he will have from this machine. As well from this machine my boss showed me moreso how to do analytics regarding stocks, bonds, funds, and futures. it was a big week for me and i will be looking forward to making up some mock portfolios for you DR. Sarcone. however you must promise that you will use none of my fool proof investment stratigies for yourself, becacuse they belong to MS. hahaha.
Talk to you soon hope your vacation was stellar.
