Redefining sports investment with Wes Edens

The son of a psychologist and the man who was once named the new king of Subprime is the new investor at Aston Villa. Wes Eden has decided to grow his portfolio as a sports investor with the new capital injection into the club. He and his partner Nassir an Egyptian billionaire are now the majority shareholders in the club having purchased a 55 percent stake. The deal will see Wes Edens become the club’s co-chairman another position that he hopes to drive successfully as with all others he has held and currently holds. The club that has been around for more than 100 years had been struggling, and this could have been one of the reasons their form had dipped. They had, however, managed to see some improvements missing by a whiskey an opportunity to rejoin the English Premier League when they lost their final match in May.

Wes Edens also the co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks after he and his other partner Marc Lasry a hedge fund manager and CEO purchased it for 550 million dollars. The club needed a new arena, and this was one of the first investments they made for them. Wes Edens was part of the team that unveiled the new arena to the public after its completion. He has always been very passionate about sports and its one of the main reasons he is never afraid of spending big bucks to acquire the said clubs and teams.

Wes Edens has also had a very successful career in finance. He is the co-founder of Fortress, which was recently acquired by SoftBank. The group has been quite successful moving from private, then public in 2007 as listed on the NYSE and eventually returning to private hands following its acquisition by SoftBank. The deal was worth an approximate 3.3 billion dollars, which saw shareholders enjoy over thirty percent premium per share given the price it was trading at the time of acquisition.

Wes Edens is optimistic about the acquisition given the financial muscle held by SoftBank and the money they have dedicated towards American investments. He believes that the group will soon be worth much more.

Betsy DeVos: Pushing for Alternative Education Systems All over America

The growing disparities between private school education and public school education are often used as a plot device for popular television shows and books. Children attending elite educational institutions are depicted as happy and successful while children who are in the public school system are depicted as troubled. While many people seem to write this off as simply something to entertain other parents understands that this is a growing problem for many schools all over the United States. Children are simply not receiving an education that is worthy of their talents in the public school system. When the public figures like Betsy DeVos, current Secretary of Education, are actively speaking out for children in the public school system then there is something completely wrong.

 

The archetype of a child who is going to a private school and learning at an accelerated rate is one that many parents want for their children. Many of them don’t understand that there are more options available to them in this arena than they think. Betsy DeVos spoke with an interviewer at Philanthropy Roundtable about this process many years ago before she was ever appointed to her current role. She wanted parents of all backgrounds to be able to offer this type of education to their children. She believed that many public-school children were being shortchanged when it came to their education. In fact, she has been so moved by the plight of public schools’ children that she has even opened her own charter school with her husband Dick DeVos. The charter school is built around aviation and helps teach children in a way that truly matters to them.

 

This is one of the foundational concepts for Betsy DeVos she believes that children are not being educated in a way that is meaningful for them. Children all over the nation are getting less out of the education process the more that officials try to streamline it. Betsy DeVos has always been a proponent of the private sector for education. One of the ways that she feels so strongly about education is through the private school. She believes that children are allowed to engage in more self-directed learning or learning that is relevant to them. While there can be no denying that certain basic principles need to be taught to every person it is also important for them to learn within a context that is meaningful for them. Betsy DeVos has been pushing for school choice for many years to ensure that children can learn in this way.

 

She explains to Philanthropy Roundtable that much of the work that she does is centered around advancing the educational goal of children that are not able to attend these institutions on their own. She wants parents to understand that there are options available to them through the notion of “school choice”. She hopes that more visibility of these programs will increase interest and they will continue to grow. She also pushes parents to look into homeschooling as it is a viable option to education that is still much better than the public-school system.
