American States Support

The Chilean diplomat Jose Miguel Insulza was re-elected unanimously for another term as head of the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS). Insulza is aware that received support allowing you to some tranquillity in his next term, isn’t a carte blanche, but an endorsement to an organism that needs an urgent re-engineering. Criticism received in its previous management, should not fall on deaf broken by re-election, but that should be the starting point to achieve a continental body more effective and efficient in their duties. While it is true that some Member countries are not satisfied with the actions of the OAS, it is not so easy to find a solution in a multilateral agency whose characteristics mark the margin for manoeuvre of the same is extremely limited by strict respect to the sovereignty of its members. That is why the Secretary-General has very few resources for his performance. Insulza should be supported in this second period in countries such as: Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and of course United States which have greater weight in the region and see in negotiating with them that will surely be very hard, until where it will allow you to act, whether there will be a wider margin of participation to the OAS in the treatment of regional issues. It is necessary for Insulza to have such support. We should remember that more than once re-elected General Secretary said: the OAS is what its Member States want it to be.

One of the toughest criticisms to the previous management of Insulza has been his lack of aggressiveness to act. If get the support not just for votes, but to give more legitimacy to its work in complex situations that surely you must act. Although the great failure of the previous management of Insulza was the Honduras case, there were also important achievements which stand therein, as they have disabled the Nicaraguan political-institutional crisis in 2005. Also, the support given to Bolivia in its transformation process democratic, have prevented a political crisis in Guatemala in 2009 and having prevented the growth of a possible conflict between Ecuador and Colombia in 2008. Jose Maria Insulza should rethink the so-called Democratic Charter, as promised when it presented its programme for the second period.

Such reform would be aiming to achieve greater felxibiliad and faster procedures enabling it to act preventively. But in doing so, the unanimous support of 33 votes from the 35 member countries (Honduras and Cuba have no representation) received in the re-election, should materialize in alliances and support to the Secretary-General. Only thus the Organization of American States will fulfill its mission as a modern organization that should be at the height of the challenges that will be presented in the American continent.

Federal Government

On April 25, the Bundestag adopted the Bill of the Federal Government for the promotion and regulation of charge advice about financial instruments. St. Gallen, 05.06.2013 – thus the honorary consulting in Germany is anchored for the first time legally. Through the introduction of the protected designation of the honorary investment advisor in the securities trading Act (WpHG), as well as the honorary financial investment advisor in the business is for customers in the future more transparent, whether the service of investment advice will be compensated through commissions of the product provider or just the charge of the customer. It therefore involves enhanced disclosure and transparency to the customer. The customer (investors) can then decide which form the investment advice he would like to take advantage of. A breakthrough”, such as communications expert Michael Oehme thinks, who already has made known the topic of honorary consulting in Germany in the 1990s and wrote a manual, together with other experts.

Control, the investors may in the future on the Internet site of the Federal Agency for In a publicly visible register of honorary advisors inform financial supervisory authority (BFin). Corresponding registration obligations also for fee financial investment advisor at the central registries of the Chambers of Commerce and industry. Work on a Commission basis is then no longer possible to avoid conflicts of interest. Who receives commissions as Honorary Advisor, must pass immediately and without deduction to its customers this. Applies for investment services providers, that the investment advice while still may be offered on fee – as well as on a Commission basis. This requires that the responsible areas of organisational, functional and staffed strictly apart are inseparable but now. Thus that honorary advisers get no sales targets and the objectives of the honorary investment advice Act thus are injured ensuring. The objectives of the honorary investment advice Act are clear and ambitious: through a legal embodiment of the fee-based investment advisory aims to establish more transparency about the shape of the remuneration of the investment advice, so that a customer can decide in the future consciously for the Commission-based investment advice or for Commission-based fee advice.

Euro Oil

As reported by the Association of closed-end Fund (VGF), energy funds were the only asset class with a nominal growth last year. Dallas, 18.06.2013. Investors invested Euro 2012 723,2 million, 14 percent more than in the previous year (2011: 637,1 million euros) “, so the VGF in its official press release.” It is difficult to differentiate between the different funds. Because one involves investments that spend their money for renewable energy such as solar, wind and geothermal energy to another but also to funds that usually invest in the optimization of existing oil or gas sources (link). Oil is, without doubt, one of the world’s most important resources.

Without the liquid gold, as it is sometimes so beautiful, nothing goes in the industry. Looking at the list of these companies in Europe, so many energy companies among the first found ten. Oil has established large assets and also provides a wide layer of normal investors”a meaningful Alternative. This is far too little known. Just oil investments are a sensible investment with high yield potential.

This related, in particular, that oil is a limited commodity (link). It is no wonder that more and more investors to invest in oil. Success this then is this a real value on a direct investment in producing sources or through a closed-end funds, which in turn invests in producing sources, and offers therefore the known advantages of this type of investment, such as, for example, inflation protection. In this respect a stake in an oil well not differs from on a property as an investment. Although oil prices here are subject to certain cycles, a certain direction suggests itself for decades. Also, with regard to this they differ little from real estate. Because nobody will seriously want to argue that both are not increasingly more expensive. Oil or natural gas sources in the United States are particularly in demand. The country has many advantages, there is also a politically safe environment. Investors have in the Land of opportunity many advantages and it makes no difference whether it occurs as a German or American investor. However you should watch closely the performance of the characters, which one entrusts his money. Usually I is it German investment companies, representing also the appropriate care. They in turn work with companies in the United States, which implement the actual operative business. Companies like Amtex oil & gas (link), you would have to correctly write oil & gas to german Amtex, offer the opportunity to participate in an oil well investors here. This is done in the form of a private placement together with a few other investors. The investors are registered as owner in the United States. You participate thereby obtained gas and oil revenues, large energy companies do not do otherwise also.

Futures Exchange

Certificates on raw materials refer to the respective futures of raw materials, such as oil. In the framework of the so-called rollover is sold the expiring futures and the amount of money in the next due future invested (or rolled). The price difference between the individual contracts will be balanced by the fact by rise or fall in the participation of the certificate. A comparison can be found here. Funds that put the capital of investors in securities by providers who are active in the commodities sector, are known as commodity funds. With these investors through the use of different instruments can seize opportunities offered in global commodity markets. It is possible, on the one hand, to participate in positive developments in the commodity markets, on the other hand you can benefit but also by negative price trends by setting temporary short positions. You can find the different offers among other things here.

Without wanting to evaluate these investments, they completely differ from direct investments in oil and natural gas sources. An oil certificate not invested oil or its source, for example, in the raw material, but is based on the prices of oil futures, which are traded on the Futures Exchange. The investor is not directly on the asset system oil or natural gas involved so tradable securities, but only on their derivatives. As pointed out the renowned Professor Dr. Karl-Georg Loritz in several essays, this is dependent on the interactions of the stock exchange here, without directly to influence the actual asset. You should leave this field specialists. Otherwise the direct stakes of the Amtex oil & gas LLC: here the investor acquires a stake in one or more oil and natural gas sources, i.e.
