NEW YORK, 2022-Dec-08 — /EPR Network/ — Amberwave Partners (Amberwave) — an asset manager developing financial products based on U.S. jobs, security, and growth (JSG) — today announced plans to transfer the listing of the Amberwave Invest USA JSG Fund (IUSA), an exchange-traded fund (ETF), managed by Amberwave from NYSE Arca, Inc. to the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. The transfer is expected to occur on or about December 23, 2022. No shareholder action is expected because of this change, nor is the transfer expected to affect the trading of fund shares.

Amberwave Partners Research and Management, LLC is an SEC registered investment advisor and serves as IUSA’s investment advisor. IUSA is available to investors through most individual brokerage firms.

Important Risk Information: While the shares of ETFs are tradeable on secondary markets, they may not readily trade in all market conditions and may trade at significant discounts in periods of market stress. ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETF’s net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

There is no guarantee that the IUSA (the “Fund”) will achieve its objective. The universe of acceptable investments for the Fund may be limited as compared to other funds due to the Fund’s JSG (jobs, security, and growth) investment screening. Because the Fund does not invest in companies that do not meet its JSG criteria, and the Fund may sell portfolio companies that subsequently violate its screens, the Fund may be riskier than other mutual funds or ETFs that invest in a broader array of securities.

Investors should consider the investment objective, risks, and charges and expenses of the Fund before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund and should be read carefully before investing. The prospectus may be obtained at http://www.jsgfunds.com/iusa-etf or by calling (888) 926-1931. The Fund is distributed by Northern Lights Distributors, LLC, member FINRA / SIPC. Amberwave Partners and Northern Lights Distributors, LLC, member FINRA / SIPC are not affiliated.

Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe artwork tokenized using Sygnum’s Desygnate solution

ZURICH/ MADRID, 8-Nov-2022 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Sygnum Bank and Artemundi tokenize Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe artwork.

Warhol – a leading figure in Pop Art history
Andy Warhol is the creator of some of the most iconic artworks of the 20th Century and has been a top-ten selling artist for over two decades. His works are held in numerous prestigious collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago.

Based on a publicity photograph from her film ‘Niagara’, Warhol’s iconic Marilyn Monroe series has enjoyed long-term price appreciation. Since 2000, this series have generated 17 percent of all Warhol auction sales, despite being only 3 percent of volume, and has consistently outperformed both the Warhol and Artprice Global Indices.

Issuance of 5,000 Art Security Tokens (ASTs) through Swiss-regulated Sygnum bank
Sygnum’s Desygnate platform tokenized Andy Warhol’s ‘Four Marilyns (Reversal)’, currently priced at CHF 5.7 million. The issued 5,000 WHL1 tokens are available for subscription exclusively to Sygnum professional and institutional clients via the Sygnum e-banking portal, and trading via Sygnum’s SygnEX secondary market. All transactions will be settled in Swiss Francs using Sygnum’s Digital CHF stablecoin (DCHF), underpinned with the legal certainty of direct physical artwork ownership under the Swiss DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) framework.

Fatmire Bekiri, Sygnum Bank’s Head of Tokenization, says: “Warhol’s iconic ‘Four Marilyns’ truly immortalises one of the Golden Age of cinema’s most illustrious stars. By leveraging blockchain technology, we’re building a future where owning such world-renowned paintings could one day be as simple as buying a can of tomato soup – like those also made famous by Warhol.”

The art market is complex, and often requires deep technical knowledge, personal connections, and millions of dollars to enter. Sygnum’s tokenization solution, partnered with Artemundi’s art investment experience, lowers financial barriers by enabling fractional ownership and democratises access to pieces of art history by masters like Warhol and Picasso.

Javier Lumbreras, CEO of Artemundi, says: “Artemundi’s strategic portfolio is made of artists’ masterpieces so unique they can be considered ‘monopolies’ of universal recognition. They have a track record of growth that continues for generations.”

About Warhol’s Four Marilyns:
‘Four Marilyns (Reversal)’, 1979-1986, shows the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe repeated four times in black and white. Andy Warhol famously returned to this image of the actress in his works, using different colour palettes and varying the number of repetitions across one canvas. In this artwork, the artist used his signature silkscreen technique and reversed the original colour palette to show Marilyn’s likeness in negative.

Digi Communications N.V. updates its 2022 Financial Calendar

BUCHAREST, Romania, 28-Jul-2022 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Digi Communications N.V.

Market-neutral hedge fund Caravel Capital Fund Showcased At Secure Spectrum’s Hedge Fund Seminar

COPENHAGEN, 3-Jun-2022 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Jeff Banfield, a founding partner of Caravel Capital Investments Inc., was the featured speaker at Secure Spectrum’s Hedge Fund Seminar in Copenhagen, Denmark, on June 2, 2022. With over 35-years of experience in the alternative investment industry, Banfield delivered valuable insights and his recipe for navigating the current global financial markets.

Titled, The Alchemy of Risk, Opportunity, and Experience, Banfield explained how he earned positive returns for each of his 35-years in the investment business. His position as a Proprietary Trader at Dominion Securities in 1987 prepared him for six Bear Markets and unexpected macro factors.

Mr. Banfield was asked how he consistently achieves positive returns. He explained, “We approach every investment with the following criteria: strong understanding of fundamentals, applying the correct strategy in the economic cycle; coupled with the opportunity to generate the targeted return, and always managing the tail risk.” He also added, “We listen to the central banks and policymakers when they telegraph well in advance, and we take appropriate countermeasures to protect the portfolio. Glen and I find our best opportunities when fear and greed misprice the market.”

Soren Dal Thomsen, CIO, kicked off the program, presenting, “Why should one have hedge funds in their portfolio?” Then followed by Jeppe Blirup, Head of Hedge Funds, who gave the landscape of Secure Spectrum’s Fund of Hedge Funds. Jeppe explained, “We turned to Jeff to share his wealth of knowledge on the markets, strategies, and execution. Especially in this kind of market, we are all looking for insights that will help us to grow and preserve our capital. Caravel Capital shares our priorities: growth of capital, capital preservation, alignment of interests, and risk-aversion.”

The Caravel Capital Fund outperformed major indices in Q1 2022 with a 3.25% (net of fees) return, generated 30.78% returns in 2021, and have produced annualized returns of 18.96% since inception in 2016 while maintaining a Sharpe Ratio of 2. Gibbons and Banfield utilize several strategies, including but not limited to convertible arbitrage, relative value arbitrage, capital structure arbitrage, merger arbitrage, distressed debt, and alpha long/short.

Caravel Capital Investments Inc. is an event-driven, market-neutral hedge fund based in Nassau, The Bahamas. Founded in 2016 by Glen Gibbons and Jeff Banfield, the firm prioritizes capital preservation with a commitment to liquidity and transparency. Named after the agile exploration ships used during the age of discovery, the firm maintains strict limits, small positions, and a manageable fund size to ensure quick responses to changing dynamics. The team uses innovative, leading-edge idea implementation while owning the Fund’s risk tails. The managers pursue systematic and non-systematic risk reduction through frequent review of risk/reward and high liquidity, thereby providing a genuinely market-neutral result, as evidenced by the returns.

Secure Spectrum is a fund of hedge funds that aims to generate an absolute return over the business cycle, seeking to generate an attractive risk-adjusted return regardless of the development of financial markets. Secure Hedge seeks to exhibit low correlation with the stock market and help diversify a traditional portfolio consisting of equities and bonds. The fund’s active portfolio management involves looking for exposure to attractive niche investment strategies that are typically difficult to access and independent of each other.

Bucharest, Romania, 18-05-2022 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Digi Communications N.V. (“Digi” or the “Company”) would like to inform the market and its investors that, the Q1 2022 Financial Report was amended in order to correct the following clerical errors:

  1. In the English version of the Q1 2022 Financial report, at page 21, Under the line “Condensed Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income”, in the original version of the Q1 2022 Financial Report we presented the description pertaining to ‘Net profit attributable to owners’ under the line ‘Net profit Attributable to non-controlling interests’ and vice-versa. In the amended Q1 2022 Financial Report we have corrected the clerical error by reversing the description to the correct lines.
  2. In the English version of the Q1 2022 Financial report, at page 23, Under the line “Condensed Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity”: the figure representing the movement in ‘Translation reserves’ was presented in the ‘Revaluation reserves’ column and the figure representing the movement in ‘Revaluation reserves’ was presented in the ‘Fair value reserves’ column, also the ‘Total’ lines had to be updated. Practically both figures were erroneously shifted to the right, and in the process also the ‘Total’ lines were affected. In the amended Q1 2022 Financial Report we have corrected this clerical error.

New platform to buy and sell tokens backed by a diversified portfolio of U.S. real estate

ATLANTA, GA, United States, 2-May-2022 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Yield Crowd is an online portal to buy and sell tokens backed by a diversified portfolio of U.S. real estate. Yield Crowd has just finished it’s tokenization of a U.S. $50M portfolio of real estate as YIELD tokens on the Stellar blockchain.

Commenting on Yield Crowd’s ongoing momentum, Chief Executive Officer Amariah Olson stated, “Being huge believers in technology and the future, and witnessing first-hand the transactional friction and liquidity issues in the incumbent real estate private equity sector, we are very excited to be bringing Blockchain technology to the real estate space and to offer the world’s first portfolio of institutional assets tokenized on the blockchain. We are doubling down to become the leading tech pioneers in the blockchain real estate space with our Yield Crowd platform, where buyers and sellers can come together to transact real estate backed tokens on-chain and earn dividends daily.”

Started by brothers Obin and Amariah Olson, their real estate company Olson Capital Investments began as a small private investment company, where they had large success in investing in and developing multifamily, office and retail properties. Prior to real estate, they were investing in and producing Hollywood films with global distribution, now they are primarily focused in the real estate space, currently holding over $50M in institutional class assets, where they have grown the equity at 154% per year through the acquisition of distressed and value-add deals.

The Olson’s recently acquired two retail car wash properties in Orange and Riverside County near Los Angeles, CA, valued at over $33,000,000. They closed the deal with $15M of debt from T bank, and are currently under contract on a 121-room Hotel in Arizona, and 130 additional apartment units in Texas. Diversifying into retail and hotels is part of the company’s short-term strategy to boost its portfolio’s cash flow to help finance the Yield Crowd platform and pay dividends to token holders. YIELD token will initially be a regulation S exempt offering, available to non-U.S. investors. The Tokens are backed by corporate bonds set to receive excess income from the Olson’s private real estate portfolio and will be available on the yieldcrowd.com platform, where token holders can earn a target 8.75% return.

Olson further comments, “In the coming years, Yield Crowd will be positioning itself to be the go-to online real estate investment. Unlike the incumbent real estate funds, which often require an investor to tie up their capital in the fund for 7-10 years, YIELD tokens are freely tradable between owners on the Stellar decentralized exchange. This flexibility is going to make a huge impact in the real estate industry over the next 3-5 years, and we are positioned to be at the forefront as the industry transitions to the blockchain paradigm.”

The Olson’s have completed over 20 real estate investments in Office, Residential, Multifamily, and Retail, totaling over $80 million in transactions, which they have privately financed using their own equity and institutional debt.
