Running water. Sanitation systems. Electricity. A car to drive to the store. Enough food to feed your family. These are all things that we've likely taken for granted at one time or another — and they're things that so many in the world live without every day. As part of our Holiday Giving Back Episode series, we talk with the VP of a charitable organization whose mission is to eliminate that level of extreme poverty worldwide. Mark Lutz is the Senior Vice President of Global Philanthropy at Opportunity International. He joined the organization in 1986 and grew private annual revenue from $1 million to more than $40 million. Mark grew up in South Africa with his missionary parents. Living for 20 years under apartheid shaped him to become an advocate for justice. He's also the author of “UnPoverty: Rich Lessons from the Working Poor.” Tune into the full conversation for more on Opportunity International's unique method of making a difference in impoverished people's lives, personal stories from Mark's book that display the valuable lessons he's learned from those living in poverty, success stories from the entrepreneurs Mark's organization has worked with, and a lot more. Here's a Glimpse of What You'll Learn: How growing up in apartheid South Africa was the “germ” that later became Mark's career in the nonprofit world More about the lightbulb moment Mark had in which he realized he could leverage other people's money to fight for justice and an end to poverty The definition of a “micro-loan”, how Opportunity International recipients typically use that kind of loan, and how those small loans snowball into bigger chances at breaking out of poverty Mark shares a story from his book involving a group of women from India and the valuable lessons that they taught him How much Opportunity International money has been loaned out to people in need — and how many individuals have been helped by those What one woman in the Philippines did with a $50 loan and what Mark learned from that story More info about what happens with donations to Opportunity International and how bank partnerships help 10x the impact of those donations Why today's level of poverty can be the next “Berlin Wall” The power of a simple $30 donation The important distinction between giving money and giving a loan, and why that's related to increasing people's dignity Resources Mentioned in This Episode: Opportunity International website UnPoverty.org (Mark's website) “UnPoverty: Rich Lessons from the Working Poor” by Mark Lutz Buy a copy of “Lost at CEO: An Entrepreneur's Guide to Strategy” by Carl J.

In this compelling episode of Tech Talks Daily, I am joined by Terry Ray, Senior Vice President at Imperva, for a crucial discussion on a frequently overlooked aspect of data security: protecting low-value data. Terry brings a wealth of knowledge and a unique perspective, warning organizations about ignoring what is often perceived as insignificant data. Throughout the episode, Terry emphasizes a critical message: no data should be ignored, regardless of its perceived value. He draws an analogy between data security and home security, illustrating how leaving low-value data unprotected is akin to leaving your front door wide open. This oversight can give cybercriminals a foothold, allowing them to gather insights and eventually target more valuable, sensitive data. The conversation delves into why organizations need to monitor low-risk data as intensely as high-risk data. Terry argues that the goal of data security shouldn't be merely to catch criminals in the act but to identify and thwart their efforts before they can execute their plans. He stresses that even data classified as low risk can be extremely valuable in the wrong hands, necessitating vigilant monitoring and protection akin to other cybersecurity practices. We explore real-world examples where organizations have suffered significant breaches due to insufficient attention to low-value data. These examples highlight the need for comprehensive visibility and knowledge of all data types to detect and respond to breaches effectively. A vital part of the discussion focuses on balancing data accessibility and security. Terry underscores the importance of continuous monitoring and analysis of unusual behavior and implementing robust controls to ensure that data access is both authorized and secure. In a world where data breaches are increasingly common and sophisticated, Terry advises organizations to prioritize data security and close any existing gaps in their security strategies. He also highlights the growing importance of leveraging machine learning and AI in analyzing data and identifying potential risks.

In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Greg Menefee. When he was growing up, Greg's perception was that his family was just as well-off as any other. Greg was an avid skier and one year his dad promised him a new pair of $300 skis for the upcoming season. As that season drew closer, the skis never materialized. Greg ultimately mustered the courage to ask his mom about them. It was in that moment that his childhood perceptions crumbled, and Greg learned that his family didn't have $300 to spare for the skis. As Greg tells us, the skis didn't really matter to him, but the situation created a money conflict between his mother and father that became a recurring theme. This shaped Greg's approach to money, making him more risk-averse and changing how he discusses financial matters. Greg Menefee serves as the Senior Vice President of Relationship Management at Orion Advisor Tech. In this role, Greg is the champion of the phrase “Elevate Everything” with his team of consultants who are dedicated to helping advisors maximize their Orion experience and accelerate their firm's growth goals and potential. A self-proclaimed CX fanatic, Greg brings over two decades of expertise in helping advisors think differently about creating incredible client experiences for their clients. Greg began his career in 1998 with Fidelity Investments, and most recently built and led the Institutional Consulting teams at TD Ameritrade Institutional. When not working with advisors or reading up on the latest books about client experience, you can find Greg and his wife, Summer on mountain bikes with their kids in the Mountain Biking Capital of the world, Bentonville, AR.

We've kept those teams exceptionally busy on the blade side, we're a tier one blade supplier and we've really grown our customer base specifically with blades.

The municipal bond market has been long-prized as a stable, tax advantaged income generator for individuals, After years of a low interest rate environment, the asset class is getting renewed attention . . . And it's not just from investors! Tech disruptors are eyeing the space and they see a massive, disjointed uncoordinated market in need of modernization. I spoke with STEPHEN WINTERSTEIN on the state of the municipal bond market. He has a 360 degree view of the muni bond space. Steve is the Founder of SP Winterstein and Associates which advises dealers and buy-side firms on municipal fixed income data and technology procurement, vendor engagement, workflow, and market structure. He has over 35 years experience in municipal SMA and mutual fund management, electronic trading, fintech. Most recently, he was head of municipal fixed income at MarketAxess and head of Capital Markets at Alphaledger. We'll tackle his view of thoughtful municipal fixed income management, the size, delivery and fractionalization of the market and the technological challenges faced. Finally, we'll get some input on where Steve thinks AI, Blockchain, LLM's and some of the other buzzy words out there may have some real world impact on the asset class. Background Take us through your career . . . and your start in the Municipal Bond space Portfolio Manager - Meridian Asset Management Managing Director & Senior Vice President, Head of Municipal Fixed Income - PNC Head of Municipal Fixed Income Strategy & Research - Wilmington Trust Head of Municipal Fixed Income - MarketAxess Head of Capital Markets - Alphaledger Managing Partner - SP Winterstein & Associates, LLC Investing Process Discussing the two pillars of Muni Investing - Credit and Duration Fallacy of being able to predict interest rates Spending Calories on Credit Research "Bus Map"- incorporating client input in the design/choice of investment constraints The Municipal Bond Market The Size of the Muni Market and the challenges that causes The fractionalized nature of muni market Typical means tf transacting Brokerage vs SMA vs fund Problems with indexing Where can technology help? Pipe-building, blockchain, AI review of docs, what else? Where are the initiatives of improvement? What is holding things back? In your mind What is the solvable low-hanging fruit? What isn't? Where does this help the municipality? Where does this help the market participant? Where does this help the investor? Going Forward With interest rates normalizing- any glimpses into Steve's crystal ball? Getting rid of tax exemption solves the paradox of the heterogenous borrowing base (institutions of all flavors and sizes) and the homogenous lending base (individuals) by broadening the lending base. While removing the tax favored status would raise borrowing costs, it would improve liquidity - which problem do you want to solve in a world where infrastructure so desperately needs funding?
