Our discussion looks at the role of in-house and outside counsel in the development and launch of new consumer financial products. We first discuss the range of issues to be considered as part of the preliminary scoping process, including state licensing, marketing, underwriting, servicing, and collection issues. We turn next to the process of addressing potential legal obstacles and problems that are identified in scoping, including what consideration should be given to competitors' approaches and when consultation with regulators should be considered. Our discussion then looks at counsel's role in moving forward towards product launch, including operational considerations in drafting the consumer agreement and meeting regulatory requirements. We conclude by discussing counsel's role post-product launch, including the use of consumer complaints and moving beyond the minimum viable product. Alan Kaplinsky, Senior Counsel in Ballard Spahr's Consumer Financial Services Group, hosts the conversation joined by Mike Guerrero, a partner in the Group and co-head of the firm's Fintech and Payment Solutions Industry Group.
"I think we're entering into a period when it will be more attractive to invest outside of the US and to invest in China and Pan-Asia than we've probably seen in the last few years," says David Bailin, Chief Investment Officer at Citi Global Wealth.

But the countries are also intertwined, and they are each looking to navigate a delicate balancing act on the global stage.

The Real Estate Crowdfunding Show - DEAL TIME!
Commercial real estate sponsors who took out floating rate loans are in trouble. Rates have over doubled since their lows throwing many loans into technical defaults even if the borrower is keeping them current and their lenders aren't (yet) marking them to market. What this means is that many sponsors, especially those new to the real estate game (i.e. who entered during the bull run of the last 11 years), if they have not done so yet, are likely to stop distributions to their investors and will be searching for ways to save their deals from going back to the bank in foreclosure. In a market downturn, like we have today, there are two types of sponsor: Those that underwrote conservatively, took on low debt, and were happy with lower projected returns because they knew their numbers were robust enough to weather the next, inevitable downturn. These sponsors will clean up during this downturn, buying distressed assets at significant discounts. And then there were those who promised sky-high IRR's just to attract investors, maximized the debt they took on so they could juice returns, used unrealistic rent increase assumptions, and underestimated the real impact of maintenance and tax costs in their proformas (amongst other things). These sponsors are toast. And there are also two types of bank: those that are pragmatic and urgently seeking ways to clear their books of these potentially toxic loans before values fall any further and borrowers start going into actual default on loans, and those more confident the market will right itself and so are prepared to extend loans under more favorable terms with borrowers, kicking the can down the road. With over $500 billion of bank/thrift originated CRE loans coming to maturity deadlines in the 12-months or so to mid-2024, the days of reckoning are upon the commercial real estate industry. Even sponsors who took on short term, fixed rate loans are going to hit solvency walls and start losing assets to their lenders in foreclosure or find themselves forced to sell at substantial discounts to their (and their investors') expectations. If you want to be on the right side of this equation, listen in to my conversation with Cody Charfauros, Principal/MD at Slatt Capital a debt and equity shop. Cody shares his own personal experience of the impact of dramatically increased debt costs and dives deep into market dynamics, giving you a roadmap for what to expect in the months ahead.

On today's episode, Dennis speaks with FBI's lead international kidnapping negotiator, CEO & Foudner of The Black Swan Group and best-selling author, Chris Voss. Chris used his many years of experience in international crises and high-stakes negotiations to develop a unique program that applies globally proven techniques to the business world. Prior to 2008, Chris was the lead international kidnapping negotiator for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), as well as the FBI's hostage negotiation representative for the National Security Council's Hostage Working Group. During his career, he also represented the U.S. government as an expert in kidnapping at two international conferences sponsored by the G8. Before becoming the FBI's lead international kidnapping negotiator, Christopher served as the lead Crisis Negotiator for the New York City division of the FBI. Chris was a member of the New York City Joint Terrorist Task Force for 14 years. He was the case agent on TERRSTOP (Omar Abdel-Rahman/"The Blind Sheikh" case) and the TWA Flight 800 catastrophe. He also negotiated the surrender of the first hostage taker to give up in the Chase Manhattan Bank robbery. During Chris's 24-year tenure with the Bureau, he was trained in the art of negotiation by not only the FBI, but also Scotland Yard and Harvard Law School. He is also a recipient of the Attorney General's Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement and the FBI Agents Association Award for Distinguished and Exemplary Service. Chris has taught business negotiation in MBA programs as an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, and at Georgetown University McDonough School of Business.

Channing Hamlet is the Co-Owner and Managing Director of Objective Capital Partners, a prestigious investment banking and valuation firm with an impressive track record of executing over 500 M&A transactions worth $1 billion and more than 1,000 business valuations. With over 25 years of experience, Channing has built a solid reputation for his expertise in management advice, transaction execution, and business valuation. This has earned him multiple accolades, including three consecutive years as a Leader of Influence: Investment Bankers by the Los Angeles Business Journal (2020-2022). SELLING AT A PREMIUM As an investment banker, Channing stresses the importance of companies understanding what drives value in their sector, building predictability into their business, and having a clear differentiation or unique selling proposition. Understanding the value drivers in your sector is paramount to preparing a sale. Every industry has different value drivers, and companies need to do their research and figure out what drives value in their industry. They should also be aware of who their potential buyers are and what they are looking for. Building predictability into a business and having recurring revenue streams and systematizing operations are also a vital step in preparing for sale. This makes the business more attractive to potential buyers, as they can see that the business is predictable and has a solid foundation for growth. There is also an increasing importance of having clean accounting and financial projections that are believable and achievable. Buyers are raising their standards, and companies need to be well-prepared to successfully sell their business at a premium. CHANGING MARKET CIRCUMSTANCES In an ever-growing market, the impact of fluctuating market conditions on company valuations cannot be overstated.

As the co-founder and CEO of Groove, an online coworking community and mobile app for solopreneurs, Josh is building on his passion for community to help transform the way people on wavy career paths (solopreneurs, freelancers, creatives) can find support and human connection to help them accomplish great things. Josh's career itself follows a wavy path — after working as an engineer, he studied meditation as a way to combat his burnout, spending time learning at ashrams in India. He brought together his spiritual practices with bringing people together through cultural events and programming as Managing Director at London's Village Underground and working on festivals like Wilderness Festival. He continued freelancing as a strategy and innovation consultant. He believes in work-life harmony — how we work shapes how we live, and vice versa. He experienced this firsthand as an exec at WeWork in the office of the CEO working across the business. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Josh and his co-founders saw that the world had changed, along with our traditional work systems. Groove was created as a response to that, and is here to support the next generation of solopreneurs as they break open the ideas of how we can connect and work on energizing projects. = = = = = As always, Team PYP -- thank you for supporting the show! = = = = = My latest book, The Far Unlit Unknown -- is available everywhere books are sold!

Bharat Krishna is the Managing Director at The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program), an organization that helps higher ed, research, and government partners foster integrity and professional advancement of their learners. He joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about recent trends in research, tech ethics, generative AI, and more. We begin by hearing Bharat's origin story, including stints at McKinsey and Kaplan where he and Mike got to know each other. He then describes the role CITI Program plays in helping educate folks on how best to do research and how to train folks on best practices once they're established. We hear how this has played out at CITI since Bharat has been there: first in response to Covid and now more recently with a new wave of generative AI that is presenting challenging business cases where ethics and innovation intersect. How do we build guardrails in a rapidly changing technology landscape? And what can we learn from the intelligence of animals or speculative fiction about the future of AI? Listen in to find out.

Unser heutiger Gast hat in Essen Wirtschaftswissenschaften an der FOM Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management studiert und mit einem Bachelor abgeschlossen. Ihr Masterstudium “Internationales Marketing Management” hat sie an der Hochschule Ruhr West in Mülheim absolviert. Über 10 Jahre war sie bei der REWE Dortmund SE und Co. KG beschäftigt. Zuerst als Sales und Quality Manager, danach als Leiterin des Vorstandsbüros und Assistentin des CEO und dann als Leiterin der Personalentwicklung. Seit Oktober 2022 ist sie Geschäftsführerin von Start Up Teens und GenZ Talents - your intrapreneurs. Sie ist die LinkedIn Top Voice “Job & Karriere” und Capital zählt sie zu den Top 40 unter 40 Ihr Credo: The future of work is a matter of being human. Seit nunmehr 6 Jahren beschäftigen wir uns mit der Frage, wie Arbeit den Menschen stärkt - statt ihn zu schwächen. In bisher 370 Folgen haben wir uns mit über 400 Menschen darüber unterhalten, was sich für sie geändert hat und was sich weiter ändern muss. Wir sind uns ganz sicher, dass es gerade jetzt wichtig ist, über neue Arbeit zu sprechen, denn die Idee von “New Work” wurde während einer Krise entwickelt. Wir sind ebenfalls überzeugt, das wir im Bereich der Bildung und auch der Ausbildung neue Ansätze und Konzepte brauchen. Und so suchen wir weiter nach Methoden, Vorbildern, Erfahrungen, Tools und Ideen, die uns dem Kern von New Work näher bringen! Darüber hinaus beschäftigt uns von Anfang an die Frage, ob wirklich alle Menschen das finden und leben können, was sie im Innersten wirklich, wirklich wollen.
