Impact Investment | Blended Finance

  • – The world is undergoing one of the worst refugee crisis since World War II, and Jordan is one of the most affected countries both in absolute and relative terms
  • – While many humanitarian relief & infrastructure investment efforts exist, the funding ecosystem under-serves SMEs & entrepreneurs which cater to refugee needs
  • – The social impact investment component with a triple bottom-line impact is more than attainable in the refugee context, but until now little has been done outside the pure aid sphere
  • – Vehicle is needed to fill the void by institutionalising venture / SME investment & nurture entrepreneurship for one of the most vulnerable demographic segments
  • – Given the specifics of refugee finance, in particular if in a hybrid commercial effort, we are looking for interested parties to become cooperating partners in developing this initiative further…

Blackstone Mortgage REIT Slashes Dividend By 24% As Distress Piles Up In CRE World 

Blackstone Mortgage REIT Slashes Dividend By 24% As Distress Piles Up In CRE World  Blackstone Mortgage Trust, a real estate finance company that originates senior loans collateralized by commercial real estate across North America, Europe, and Australia, reported its second-quarter earnings on Tuesday. The report revealed a near-quarter reduction in its dividend due to rising defaults and increasing challenges with borrowers in making payments or refinancing office tower loans amid a worsening CRE downturn. Bloomberg was the first to report that the $3.4 billion real estate investment trust BXMT slashed its dividend to 47 cents from 62 cents. BXMT has been distributing the 62-cent dividend to shareholders since late 2015.  Shares of BXMT were down 6% in premarket trading in New York. If losses in premarket hold through the cash session, this would be [...]

Court Rejects Bid To Throw Out Trump Case Against Pulitzer Board

Court Rejects Bid To Throw Out Trump Case Against Pulitzer Board Authored by Zachary Stieber via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours), A court in Florida has rejected a bid from members of the Pulitzer Prize Board to throw out a case brought against them by former President Donald Trump. Former President Donald Trump arrives at the 2024 Road to Majority Conference in Washington on June 22, 2024. (Madalina Vasiliu/The Epoch Times) The board’s statement in 2022 standing behind its awards to several news outlets for reporting on former President Trump’s purported links to Russia is actionable because it is not merely opinion, Florida Circuit Court Judge Robert Pegg ruled on July 20. Defendants withheld valuable information from readers, including the process by which complaints against the [...]

More Agency Weaponization? Secret Service Tells Trump To Stop Having Outdoor Rallies

More Agency Weaponization? Secret Service Tells Trump To Stop Having Outdoor Rallies The Secret Service is turning near-assassination lemons into Deep State lemonade. Following its catastrophic failure to secure Donald Trump's July 13 rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, the Secret Service has come up with a "fix" that reeks of ulterior motives: the agency has advised the Trump campaign to stop holding large outdoor rallies altogether.  Broken by the Washington Post, news of the agency's pathetic prescription came hours after Secret Service Director Kimberley Cheatle resigned, following a marathon Monday grilling on Capitol Hill that saw her used as a punching bag by members of both major parties. Her agency's multi-dimensional incompetence in Pennsylvania left a former president and two spectators wounded -- and another dead.  BREAKING: President Donald [...]

Futures Slide As Ugly Mag 7, European Earnings Sour Trader Mood

Futures Slide As Ugly Mag 7, European Earnings Sour Trader Mood Stock futures and global markets slumped, with tech dragging the indices lower, after disappointing results from Tesla and Alphabet were followed by lackluster reports from LVMH and Deutsche Bank in Europe.

The yield curve is steepening with 2Y seeing follow-thru buying following yesterday’s strong auction. USD is stronger and commodities are weaker excluding energy. Today’s macro data focus is on Flash PMIs, New Home Sales/mortgage applications, and Inventories.  In [...]

Which Countries Have The Most Olympic Medals Of All-Time?

Which Countries Have The Most Olympic Medals Of All-Time? This summer, 10,500 athletes will compete at the peak of their careers in the Paris Olympics. In more than half of the Olympic Games, the U.S. has claimed the most medals out of any country. This success is partly due to substantial sports funding, with the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee directing over $750 million to national sports federations since 2000. This graphic, via Visual Capitalist's Dorothy Neufeld, shows the countries with the highest Olympic medal count of all-time, based on data from the International Olympic Committee.
