Nihi Resort is the talk of the town and rightly so. In fact, when Travel & Leisure included the five-star resort in the magazine’s revered list of 100 best hotels in the world, the resort received rave reviews from the magazine’s audience who voted overwhelmingly for the hotel as the number hotel in the world both this year and last year.  For related article, hit on forbes.com.

Nihi Resort (formerly Nihiwatu) has a rich history and modern tourists associate with facilities with an inspirational past. J. Christopher Burch and James McBride are the current owners of the resort, but it was not always so as the two bought the facility just five years ago from Claude and Petra Graves. The former owners arrived on the island in 1988, and after several years, they built a beach hotel. Although the Graves’ business initially picked up well, in the mid-90’s business on the island declined; the then Asian financial crisis and social problems afflicting the Sumbanese people were cited for the downturn. The Graves had to do something or else their business would collapse. In 2001, they founded the Sumba Foundation which would solicit for funds from visitors, businesses, and humanitarian aid efforts; the funds would then be channeled to uplift the locals. The Graves settled on disposing the property alongside hundreds of acres of unprotected land to Burch in 2012. Additional article to read here

Burch and McBride envisioned a unique resort that would appeal to adventurous tourists. When the hotel changed hands, the duo closed it for three years during which renovations worth over $30 million were implemented. Apparently, the hotel benefited from McBride’s expertise as a renowned hotelier as the revamped resort is breathtaking.

Nihi Resort consists of 27 private villas, tree houses with individual plunge pools, and Raja Mendaka (Chris Burch’s private home) to boot. Burch’s private home which costs $14,175 per night is an embodiment of luxury; it consists of a master villa and four other villas all tastefully designed with auxiliary facilities such as private pools.

The island of Sumba is considered a surfers paradise. Nihi Resort exists to make surfing even better in the island. The hotel offers surfing lessons for $250, and surfers get to enjoy the famous “Occy’s Left” wave for $125. What’s more, only ten surfers are allowed at a time to minimized crowding.  More about the resort on businessinsider.com.

The Oxford Club recently held a Private Wealth Seminar at the Four Seasons Resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico and they’ve developed an answer as to how much of one’s portfolio should be in stocks at the time of retirement. Several factors come into play such as one’s age, state of health, monthly expenses, and the size of the portfolio.

Americans are living longer during retirement than ever before and this must be part of the equation. If you have two or three decades to invest while you’re working then a portfolio that’s heavily invested in stocks is a good thing. However, retirees are faced with the prospect of having too much money invested in stocks. A bear market can present great buying opportunities for younger folks still saving for the golden years. Retirees, on the other hand, when faced with a bear market and the need to liquidate stock holdings are faced with a serious decline in their portfolios. This is where retirement rebalancing comes in to provide a framework for this crucial consideration.

Retirement rebalancing takes an alternative approach and considers stock holdings last. First, retirees should determine how much they need in low-risk vehicles like bonds and cash to meet their monthly expenses. After this determination is made then it is recommended by the Oxford Club that five years worth of living expenses be set aside. This is a conservative figure designed to outlast any bear market which helps retirees avoid selling stocks at market lows. The next step is to live off the reserve funds and replenish them from stock holdings when the market recovers and reaches new highs again.

The Oxford Club is a private international organization of investors and entrepreneurs. Their goal is to help their members achieve financial independence with investment opportunities that the mainstream ignores.

The Investment U arm of the Oxford Club is an excellent purveyor of financial education materials which help their members thrive. They offer courses, conferences, and videos by the Oxford Club to help them on their path to financial freedom.

Also, Bradesco Seguros became the top company in the sector in Latin America, and the net earnings increased by 10%. Between 1999 and 2005 he served on the board of directors. He is also among the people who championed for segmentation of the bank’s services

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is the fourth president and succeeded Marcio Cypriano. He underwent a rigorous selection process before appointment as president. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi took over at a period when the economic environment that was unfavorable coupled financial sectors difficulties abroad. Analysts forecasted that Bradesco’s branch network expansion would slow down and that the return on equity would average 21.3% in 2009. His primary challenge was to grow the bank’s reach and influence in the market to increase its competitiveness. Options for growth through mergers and acquisitions at the time were scarce. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s strategy was to pursue organic growth and make operations efficient at all levels. Bradesco also intended to review its rates and open more branches.

After his appointment as president, he initiated a corporate university that would nurture and grow leaders at all levels of the bank and develop a basis for promotions. Through forums conducted within the bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi encouraged participants to make contributions to the bank’s strategic plan, share ideas and perspectives, and provide solutions.

The bank took over HSBC’s retail, asset management and insurance business units, branches and clients. Bradesco’s branch networks increased by 18%. Also, the acquisition was in line with the bank’s strategy to increase sales of personalized financial solutions to large corporations and wealthy individuals. According to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, the deal enabled the bank to achieve growth that was possible only after six years of organic growth. It would take the bank about three years to fully integrate the HSBC business units to their model.

At one point, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was linked to the Finance Ministry position but declined the invitation offered by the President. He is optimistic about Bradesco’s performance in the future.
