Malini Saba is one of the world’s top female entrepreneurs and philanthropists who are of a South Asian origin. Ms. Malini Saba is the chairperson of Saban. Saban is a firm, which preserves a broad range of investment interests worldwide. Such investment interests are in the real estate industry in India and Australia, oil and gas in China and technology firms in the US. In this post, Malini talks about her numerous achievements and the drivers of her success.

Malini notes that she realized the notion of starting her own business when she wanted to make substantial investments in companies. Therefore, she established Saban, a company that is well known for holding numerous investments globally. When it comes to turning ideas into reality, Saba has always focused on the latest market trends and acted the exact opposite of the patterns. She says that for her to succeed in all her endeavors, she thinks of the future of our world in 3-5 years based on what people and the markets are doing today.

On the realization of the opening of India in the foremost part of the growth era, she decides to concentrate on the real estate market in the nation. She did the exact opposite of what many investors were doing: hesitating. She realized that the real estate market would only experience growth with the step-up of the middle class. Due to that reason, she made investments both in the retail and real estate sectors. Saba points out an increasingly positive growth of the investments over the last ten years, which is exceptional.

As the commodity market was developing in 2005, Malini Saba saw the prospects for a development of the product market in the same year. She also noted the necessity for the products and good and made significant investments in the void. Seemingly, it was not a walk in the park. However, her company managed to achieve exorbitant success. Currently, her company primarily operates iron ore mines. Additionally, the company has made notable investments in the Agro-field.

About Malini Saba

Malini Saba was born of a middle-class family in Sri Lanka. Her family was from a humble background in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She grew up in Australia. Later, Malini relocated to the United States at the age of 19. She started her life in the US with only $ 200 as her means of survival.

Philanthropic Works of Malini Saba
Malini has an intense passion for charity. She launched a non-profit foundation, Stree: Global Investment for Women, in 2001. The objective of the agency is to alter the way at-risk and low-income earning women, and children perceive the world, their status and role in the society.

The buzz is building as one of the biggest arguably THE biggest cultural celebrations gets closer and closer with every passing day. Lovaganza 2020 may still be a few years away, but that doesn’t make the excitement surrounding this worldwide party any less relevant. One part massive art exhibit, one part peace & love and a whole lot of other surprises rolled together will all add up to the most unique, highly anticipated event to ever hit this world.

Lovaganza was not originally scheduled to take place in 2020. As a matter of fact, it was supposed to have commenced in 2015. However, organizers and contributors to the event on Facebook decided to push it back to 2020 in order to make it even better and more mesmerizing than it was already slated to be. The goal is to use the extra time to help utilize new entertainment advances and to include breaking concepts into the overall celebration that is going to be Lovaganza 2020. While this event will have a retro feel (think back to old-school fairs and festivals) it is also going to include new artistic, musical and technological additions that will make it truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

A Celebration of the World’s Cultures

Lovaganza 2020 is all about bringing people together. The focus is on celebrating all the cultures of the world, and to help people to realize that peace, love and great times are not a thing of the past. This focus will really stand out to people when the culmination of Lovaganza takes place.

This celebration is not taking place in just one location. There are multiple locations, including America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It is not just a one weekend event, either. Lovaganza 2020 will take place over the course of 4 months. The culmination will be something that spans the entire globe – a ceremony of Hands Across the World. That alone is so mind-blowing that it should garner attention from folks from every walk of life on every continent.

Lovaganza 2020 Promises an Experience like no other

Motion pictures, music, art displays and a whole host of other entertainment mediums will be enjoyed by Lovaganza participants from beginning to end. The Lovaganza Entertainment Franchise is aiming to make this celebration one that helps to make a positive impact on the world, while providing much-needed exposure and assistance to movements and positive initiatives all over the planet.

Sanjay Shah is an individual who is considered to be many things including a businessman, an investment expert, a philanthropist, as well as a family man who has based all of his important decisions on the importance of providing for his family that he cares for the most. Sanjay Shah Denmark, as an investment expert is the proud founder as well as CEO of Solo Capital, a boutique investment firm that is dedicated to providing the best results upon each investment to the customer. As an investment expert, Mr. Shah is always looking ahead to the future of investments and is always looking for new ways to help customer have the highest rate of return with the lowest risk from the investment.

 

Sanjay Shah founded Solo Capital with his family in mind after he lost his job from the 2008 stock market crash. Like millions of other individuals, Mr. Shah was left unemployed. However, as a result of his situation, Mr. Shah decided to take action of his skill set and start his own business. AS a result, Mr. Shah started Solo Capital. This investment firm is particularly dedicated to offering the best options possible to businesses that are small and medium in size. This was a business decision that was made to make sure that his investment firm formed a partnership with the clients. Mr. Shah wants to have people once again trust financial firms with future investments.

 

As a father, Mr. Shah has been dedicated to his son even since his young son was diagnosed with autism in 2011. Though autism is a common diagnosis, it is a development disorder that has not been thoroughly researched. With a diagnosed son, Mr. Shah wanted to learn more about autism and how his son processes information. Autism is a development disorder that affects how individuals communicate and also typically has a negative impact on the overall handling of social situations.

 

The diagnosis of his son with autism influenced Mr. Shah to create a foundation that is known as Autism Rocks. This foundation was created to spread information to the public about how common autism is and to raise donations to further the research of the development disorder. The foundation is based in London and has some of the world’s most popular performers perform on behalf of Autism Rocks. Each performer continuously encourages donations to help this worthy and noble cause to help children and to help parents.

With the rise of social media it seems nearly everyone with any social status has begun adding the moniker of “activist” to their CV. This, of course, would not be an issue at all if the people calling themselves activists actually did any activism but all too often what constitutes as such is merely starting a hash tag or writing a scathing op-ed. However, this is not to say that such actions are useless or should not be performed but there is something to be said about the relative ineffective nature of such facial gestures. Yet there are many individuals who take it upon themselves to actually roll up their sleeves and get down in the dirt to change things for the better. One of the foremost actual activists of current times if the extremely polarizing Thor Halvorssen Mendoza, the founder of the Human Rights Foundation.

Halvorssen’s rise to prominence is partially related to the work of his foundation but is primarily due to his various and, often dangerous, forays into world politics. As a political activist very opposed to tyranny in all it’s forms, whether it resides on the left or on the right, much of Halvorssen’s work is focused on traveling to nations, specifically socialist nations, to empower the silent majority and shake up the political establishment.

Such was the case with Thich Quang Do, the leader of the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam who was imprisoned in his own home for 28 years due to the banning of his church in Ho Chi Minh City. Entering the city under the semi-false pretense of being a, “Buddhist Seeker,” (something which was, technically, true) Mr. Halvorssen entered Mr. Do’s house and filmed a lengthy interview covering the church’s as well as Thich’s own situation. However, as Halvorssen was leaving the house he was picked up by the Vietnamese authorities and viciously beaten for his “crimes.” Thor, though, was able to get the last laugh by handing off the video card to one of his friends who snuck the tape out by hiding it… in his rectum. If that isn’t dedication to a cause then it would be pretty hard to say what is!

One of the most significant reforms made by the Dodd-Frank Act, which was enacted by Congress in 2010, is the Whistleblower Program. The program was established to provide financial incentives and substantial employment protections to bold individuals who give credible information on violations made against the federal securities laws enacted by the Securities Exchange Commission. Of course, this came about as a means to curb the repulsive acts by various financial institutions in taking advantage of inexperienced and unaware individuals and companies. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is considered one of the most sweeping overhauls of the United States’ financial regulations, ever since the Great Depression.

In response to one of the most historic legislation ever made, the first law firm to be established for advocating for potential whistleblowers is Labaton Sucharow. The law firm exclusively focuses on securities litigation and with an avail of multiple resources, the firm is able to become a leader in the market. The law firm utilizes their in-house financial analysts, investigation team and forensic accountants who have had experience with the federal and state law enforcement agencies, to provide the best services in the market and ensure that justice is indeed served.

The prestigious law firm is headed by Jordan A. Thomas, who previously served at the Division of Enforcement at the SEC as the Assistant Director and the Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel. Paying tribute to his affiliation with the Securities Exchange Commission, Mr. Thomas played a very crucial role in the establishment and advancement of the Whistleblower Program, including the drafting and implementation of the proposed legislation. With such an impressive resume it only goes to show why Jordan A. Thomas is fit for his role as the head of Lbaton Sucharow law firm.

The rules of the program were elaborately set to ensure that potential whistleblowers are protected and compensated for their noble efforts. Under the rules, of course, 10-30% of the monetary sanctions collected are endowed to eligible whistleblowers after a successful enforcement action is carried out for sanctions exceeding $1 million. In the case where additional actions are brought by other law enforcement organizations, eligible whistleblowers are also entitled to additional rewards as long as the $1 million threshold is met. The rules set under the Dodd-Frank Act also prohibit employers from retaliating against their employees who report on possible violations of the laws by the Securities Exchange Commission. If one wishes to make such a report anonymously, he/she is allowed to do so with the presence of an attorney.

In a recent article on http://squawalpine.com, it was announced that Andy Wirth has been elected as the Chairman and President of Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation (RASC. In addition to his newly elected position, Andy Wirth is also the President & the Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings.

The Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation is charged with the responsibility of promoting air service into Reno-Tahoe International Airport. The Regional Air Service Corporation was originally established as a way to unite both public and private businesses and organizations in an effort to earn their marketing dollars. This is a huge responsibility, not just to the airport, but to the entire local economy. Learn more about Andy Wirth: https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfSquawValley/posts/10152191670133708

Upon being appointed to his new position, Andy commented “I am honored to serve in this role for the Regional Air Service Corporation. I believe that the landscape of, and future for our region, including the greater Reno-Sparks area and all of Lake Tahoe, is replete with opportunity. Air service into our region is and will continue to be one of the central elements of our growing and thriving economy.”

Prior to the election, Andy Wirth has made the development of airports and of air service for large resorts, as well as, communities in other areas of both the United States and Canada a major priority. He has played a vital role in getting air service to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport with JetBlue service from JFK Airport established.

So far, the public’s response to Wirth’s newly appointed position has been mostly positive. One area local stated “Wirth seems to have previous experience & a real concern for the environment. I believe that Wirth is the ideal person to become chairman of the RASC.

No doubt that with him in this position, things will only flourish”. Another local (in response to the press release) said “Wirth seems like a stepping stone in what could very well be a lot of positive changes in this area. Once people like him are put in charge jobs are created, more light is brought in on important changes, tourism picks up and more revenue is made for employees and families. Having good, knowledgeable individuals like Andy Wirth in power snowballs into positive economic changes beyond the initial concerns”.

In 2010, the federal government invited contributions from various quarters in a bid to curb the rising cases of securities violations perpetrated by companies and investors. Countless cases were witnessed but no action was taken because the laws available before then were not in the right capacity to handle securities violations effectively.

This triggered the introduction of the Dodd-Frank Consumer Protection Act amendment. The amendment created a new program referred to the SEC Whistleblower Program, which was equipped with more and strong capabilities. The reform introduced more security for whistleblowers and came with an appreciation package that every whistleblower would be given upon successful reporting.

Ethics and action survey
During the Ethics & Action Survey conducted in 2011 by Labaton Sucharow, it was revealed that more than 78 percent of Americans were ready to report violations perpetrated in workplaces only if they were guaranteed anonymity and protection against losing their jobs.

It follows that most of these cases went unreported for the mere fear one would lose his/her job should the employer get the information. However, this is no longer a worry since the SEC Whistleblower Program has been equipped with powers that allow for protection of whistleblowers against any form of victimization.

Employment protection
One of the things that have allowed whistleblowers to come out in large numbers is the fact once you report violations by your employer, you are guaranteed protection against eviction, intimidation or any retaliatory action the employer may plan against you. In fact, if it is confirmed your employer engaged in actions that are considered retaliatory and contradictory with the requirements of the Act, you have a right to file a legal suit and the requisite legal representation is catered for by the SEC.

This provision has allowed for many cases to be unveiled, something that is streamlining business operations and engagements at work places. Levels of honesty among employers and investors have also increased because they are not sure who might be watching.

Rewards to whistleblowers
The effort whistleblowers invest in observing and reporting wrong doings will not also go unnoticed since the rewards and recognition program was introduced. The program seeks to reward and appreciate those who help SEC in locating violations. Whistleblowers are issued as much as 30 percent of the sanctions that are sourced from the businesses and individuals reported. This amount is calculated based on factors like the relevance of the issue and the time it took the whistleblower to report the violations.
