The Driving Force Behind Davos

In the complicated world of finance, few firms can compete with Davos Financial Group (DFG). Their strong leadership and commitment to excellence have made it possible for customers throughout Latin America to invest confidently with the rest of the world. What began as an investment advisory firm has grown into a group of affiliated companies that offer wealth management, real estate consulting, investment banking and trust services. This was all made possible because of founder and CEO, David Osio.

A native of Venezuela, Osio obtained his law degree at Andres Bello Catholic University in Caracas, where he also took courses in banking and finance. After graduating with honors, he went on to work for the MGO law firm in Caracas, providing legal advice to corporate clients and eventually becoming its director. In the years that followed, he completed another specialized education program at Caracas’ Institute of Higher Administration Studies. He then went on to study portfolio management and banking at the New York Institute of Finance.

With all this education behind him, it wasn’t long before Osio was climbing the managerial ladder at the Latino International Bank (BLI) in Miami, Florida. After two years of working in the company’s Private Banking Division, he went on to become their Vice President of Commercial Banking. His efforts at BLI resulted in steady portfolio growth and helped strengthen their position in the world of global finance.

By 1993, Osio had decided it was time to take everything he’d learned and create a company of his own. The result was a group of independent companies designed around the needs of the Latin American market. It’s worth noting that the Davos Financial Group was the first comprehensive financial advisory firm to come out of Venezuela. Through its various companies, it has gone on to establish locations around the world, including New York, Miami, Lisbon, Panama and Geneva.

Each of the group’s companies maintain agreements with some of the world’s biggest and most important banks. These agreements are the product of years of dedication to the financial services industry with strict adherence to international banking standards and regulations. This is in keeping with Mr. Oslo’s strong belief in corporate responsibility.

Aside from his work with DFG, David Osio is also a member of the Miami Symphony Orchestra. He is involved with various charities including the Children’s Orthopedic Hospital in Venezuela, as well as the Wayuu Taya, UMA and Fundana foundations. Mr. Osio and his companies have received various awards from around the world, including the Medal of Honor of the United States Congress and “Best Offshore Corporate Service Provider,” by New Europe Magazine. http://www.officialdavidosio.com/

Philanthropist Sanjay Shah Gives Interview On Business And Charity

Solo Capital’s founder Sanjay Shah recently spoke on radio about his company an d about his philanthropy. He is the founder of Autism Rocks, a charity organization dedicated to solving the mystery of Autism. Autism is a neurological disorder that afflicted Sanjay’s son Nikhil. The interview was hosted by pharmiweb.com, and in it he covered the bases of his breakthrough company and the charity he started.

His love of music went together with his love for his son in creating Autism Rocks. With it, he partners with the music industry to present celebrations that also serve as a funding stream for research into this heartbreaking disorder.

Before his son became ill, however, he had successfully launched Solo Capital. The company is a boutique financial services firm located in London, and is fully licensed and regulated to operate there. It focuses in proprietary trading, consulting and professional sports investments.

The company is only one of many companies Shah owns, that do business as far away as the Cayman Islands. In terms of business advice, Sanjay said in the interview that one should “never underestimate” the amount of money one will need to start. He also added that one should not “assume that you can actually do all of the work yourself.” This counsel is backed by a track record of successes, that would indicate that Shah is worth listening to.

It is ironic that Sanjay wound up as a major philanthropist for a medical condition, as he had originally studied medicine. He later took up accounting and business. Autism Rocks stemmed naturally from his love of music, when he was able to connect with the famous rapper Snoop Dogg. In putting together concerts that raise awareness and money, Shah has been able to make a difference in research. He has also contributed significant amounts of his own capital. For more about Autism Rocks, you can read the Friday magazine article that came out in April, 2016.

It is clear from the interview and his charity that Mr. Shah is truly a remarkable man. To get more information about him, take a look at some of the information available on the web.
