An exclusive interview with leading investment expert Adam Ibrahim

As the implications of COVID-19 leave asset markets in a state of uncertainty and the financial markets hover around all-time highs, investor uncertainty looms. Value investors are struggling to find a bargain in an already inflated asset market- it is hard to anticipate with any kind of confidence the steady growth in equities seen over the past decade given where things stand today. Many economists are predicting further instability, and market activity continues to confound. But one young East Coast Investment Manager isn’t sweating like most firms —and neither are his clients.
Adam Ibrahim manages assets for high net worth and institutional investors through a combination of opportunistic and risk-managed strategies spanning hard real estate to liquid market assets and derivatives. While the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down as much as 40% from its highs at the peak of market pressures, Adam Ibrahim’s 365 strategies had a maximum loss of only 2.6% despite having significant exposure to the US and Global Equities. The fund carries a diversified portfolio of domestic and global assets such as US Equities, Short Duration Treasuries, and High-Yield Corporate Debt while employing risk management strategies that utilize low and no-cost derivatives to generate outsized value in extreme events. As a result, 365 is able to track gains in most asset markets while mitigating losses in the event of economic shocks. The result is an institutional product that captures market growth with less volatility while preserving liquidity for institutions and high net worth individuals during critical times.
When asked what the next move in the market is, Ibrahim replied “It is impossible to predict short-term price action, especially in this environment, however certain alternative asset classes are beginning to look cheaper. Moving forward, we will look to add more exposure to viable assets that are priced attractively while attaching robust risk management to our holdings for the event that things deteriorate further.”
Ibrahim, just 28, has more than 12 years of experience in Finance and has been managing Investments for individuals and institutional clients for 7 years. In addition to managing liquid assets, Adam is also a principal and manager in more than 20 real estate investments in Upstate New York. His New York real estate firm brings institutional and accredited investors transparent and secure exposure to high-yield multifamily and commercial real estate assets in secondary and tertiary markets throughout the United States. All properties are acquired, developed, and managed internally within Ibrahim’s organization on behalf of its principals and limited partners. Since 2014, Ibrahim has acquired over 50 properties and established a full-service property management and maintenance operation. Additionally, he serves on the Board of the Greater Miami-Miami Beach Police Foundation and as a Board Director of Leatherstocking Cooperative Insurance Company.
In this environment of increasing uncertainty, traditional safe-haven fixed-income investments and diversified portfolio strategies seem to be falling short. How the impact of the Coronavirus will unfold and the resulting impact on the markets is still anyone’s guess, but Ibrahim, who, at just 27, manages more than $90 Million for high net worth individuals and institutions, did not appear overly concerned. “Trying to predict near-term market movements is a fool’s errand in a stable environment. In this environment, it’s suicidal. For us, investing is about buying quality assets and positioning to survive in, and ideally benefit from, extreme uncertainty. The value will present itself from time to time, and market prices will eventually rise to the occasion.”

As US Dollar Drops, Vextrader Keeps Investors Ahead of the Curve

Published

on

Vextraders managed funds programs and innovative software have helped investors navigate the recent drops of the US Dollar following NFP and ADP releases.

BELIZE – With the release of new ADP and NFP reports this past week, forex investors have faced a reality check. Although the NFP report included a mix of indications for the future, investors were disappointed by the job creation report, which came in below the ADP forecast. The NFP reported 559,000 new jobs created in May, and the difference between this and the ADP’s predictions reflected the difficulty that companies have faced in hiring workers after the shifts of the pandemic.

In the near future, the US dollar may experience a short-term bottom. This may also be affected by the ECB decision and CPI report coming up this week. The last month’s CPI prompted concerns about a short-term inflation spike, but the Fed reassured investors that this will be a transitory phenomenon.

As uncertainty remains in the US Dollar indicator, Vextrader is helping investors anticipate new developments and manage their investments accordingly. Vextrader offers customers access to expert financial advisors, as well as state-of-the-art investing technology that provides quality trading solutions.

Business Blurb Founder Brendan Cox Talks Social Media, His New Book And The Future of Influencers

Published

on

If you haven’t heard of Brendan Cox, you most likely have heard of Business Blurb. Cox founded the company alongside entrepreneur turned influencer Devin Caherly early last year. According to a Forbes interview, Business Blurb is solving “the gap between actual news and what gets said on social media.” The New Jersey based media company has been compared to a modern day “Forbes” targeted at Gen Z by various publications.

What’s next for Business Blurb:

When asking Brendan about the future of Business Blurb he told us, “Funny enough – I couldn’t give you a definite answer for the future of Business Blurb. We are a media start-up and with the social media industry changing so fast it’s hard to see where we will be in 5 years.” He gave us some insight on some of the futuristic projects that they are working on that cater heavily to the Gen-Z audience, “Our text-line is essentially a news aggregator that texts you the top 5 trending business headlines every morning. Our team understands the power of text marketing in comparison to email marketing and we wanted to hone in on instant reach, fast open-rates, and legitimate engagement.”

You recently launched a new book, tell us about it:

Cox recently launched his new book ‘365 Days of Social Posts For Real Estate Agents’ which is a social media marketing book targeted towards real estate agents. Cox explained his motivation behind the book, “I genuinely noticed a need for content ideas and strategy amongst real estate agents.” He continued, “Through my social media agency, Cox Visuals I work behind the scenes of business owners and realtors and this opened my mind to the concept behind this book. So many forward-thinking agents understand the power of building a digital footprint across various platforms but aren’t sure where to start or what to post, and this is exactly what my new book guides agents through.”

What does the future of influencer marketing look like:

Along with founding Business Blurb, Cox’s day-to-day is his social media agency, Cox Visuals. Cox works alongside both businesses and influencers to help them leverage the power of social media. Cox told us, “We help influencers understand the full potential of their platforms through delivering brand marketing and social media expertise that will cultivate growth and monetization opportunities.”

We hope to be able to keep you in the loop with his future endeavors here but also make sure to connect with him on Linkedin and Instagram. If you want to check out his latest book, grab a copy of ‘365 Days of Social Posts For Real Estate Agents’ on Amazon.
