Axiom Prepaid Holding’s CEO Steven Foster will grace the cover of Total Prestige Magazine’s January 2020 issue

Axiom Prepaid Holding’s CEO Steven Foster will grace the cover of Total Prestige Magazine’s January 2020 issue

LONDON, 31-Dec-2019 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — It seems only fitting that in a year filled with new product launches, new office openings and expansion across three continents, that Axiom Prepaid Holding’s CEO would grace the cover of Total Prestige Magazine’s January 2020 issue. After all, Steven Foster, a 40-something entrepreneur and banking industry veteran, has been at the helm of a company that has exceeded its growth expectations and then some, arguably vaulting the company to a leadership position in the prepaid card and app solutions arena. And Total Prestige profiles exceptional members of the business club of the same name, which is comprised of some of the world’s best-known business leaders as well as heads of start-ups and emerging businesses.

In 2017, Foster and his business partner, Steven P. Urry, set out to disrupt the banking industry with the launch of Axiom, which uses advanced digital tools to power prepaid Visa® and Mastercard® products, programs and services for consumers and businesses. They had one ambitious mission in mind: Simplify banking for all people – globally.

“We’d been firsthand witnesses from inside the banking industry to the significant shift in the availability of financial products. But it was notable to us that it was not carrying over to the prepaid space. No matter what country we visited, there was a gap in access to products engineered for the unbanked and global traveler. We decided to go all-in on launching a business that would turn the prepaid model upside down and give all consumers and businesses easy-to-use, digitally driven products and services,” said Foster.

That goal appears to have resonated broadly as this year alone, their enterprise:

• Expanded into Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal, and Greece in Europe and grew the business in the Americas
• Entered the Asia-Pacific region
• Introduced brand- and revenue-building White Label Programs
• Rolled out hundreds of thousands of new prepaid cards, a plethora of new white label programs, including one that caters to the unique needs of millennials and Gen-Z
• Opened new offices in Romania
• Continued to invest in high-tech digital products to ensure the highest levels of intuitive, secure, compliant backend systems

As noted in the Total Prestige article, those accomplishments do not come without hard work and sacrifice. This year alone, Foster flew 725K miles for business and manages a workday that typically goes from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.

“You can’t be an effective company leader if you aren’t in touch with your customers and employee teams. I meet them where they are to be sure I understand how their geography and culture may affect banking needs in each market. I try to give 150 percent every day so I can go to sleep knowing I did everything I promised and more for Axiom’s clients, my business partners and employees,” he said. “I have to spend a lot of time away from my wife and son so I want to be certain that the time I spend on-the-job truly counts.”

“I’m very honored to be chosen for this feature article but I am just one part of the much bigger Axiom story. There would be no article if the company was not accomplishing what it set out to do. That has only been possible through the collective efforts of the entire Axiom team and my partner and friend, Steve Urry – and we are just getting started,” said Foster.

Make best use of Online Banking and stop wasting time

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 2018-Sep-26 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Most of the systems we are already used to, we do not know how they work, for we are always thinking we know enough that they work and we trust them. But honestly, do you think you know enough about online banking? Here you will find some facts that might be useful for you to know!

Here you will find useful information you will better have on mind, and also excellent reasons for using online banking services and some advices for being always safe and security.

Sometimes if your internet connection is not that good, it might be hard for you to access to your bank through your conventional online banking portal, so these online banking apps and services might help you to access in an easier, lighter and safer way anytime you need!

Online Banking – When and how did it start working?
Did you know it? The first online banking systems that gave origin of the ones you use today EVERYDAY were introduced in the early 1980s in New York when four of the national banks started offering the revolutionary home banking services, allowing the clients and small businesses to have a quick online banking check.

On the same way, the online banking started also on the United Kingdom around those years when the Scotland Bank and the Nottingham Building Society provided the Homelink service for giving their users the opportunity of viewing bank moves on a computer.

But it was only until 1994 that the banks around the entire globe started using the internet for posting their advertises, and then in 1995 they started offering to the clients the possibility of managing their money online through a home computer, and this came to be the online banking of nowadays.

The greatest benefits of using the Online Banking
As everyone knows the major benefits of using online banking are mainly two: security and comfort. With the online banking services you can make all your money-related operations without needing cash or personally going to the bank.

Paying your services with no delay
These services might help you regardless of your bank, they will help you to manage all your bank moves for having an easy, confortable, secure and practical administration of your money, you can make routine pays like paying electricity, water and gas services without losing any time of your day.

Your pays to third ones can also be made much easier with these online banking services, for they will offer you an easy platform where you can quickly see and control your bank accounts.

Manage all your accounts and save your time and money
These services might also help you if you manage more than one bank account, so you can control your money in any of them more easily and in a more ordered way. You do not need to waste any passage fees anymore if you do not live close to any bank, you can make all your processes from your home computer or even with your Smartphone.

It is really easy to look by yourself if you prefer right now, on Google Play Store for these apps for the one you prefer the most, we just advice you to read enough about each app of services and be aware of the reviews to know if it is safe and if it has the functions you need.

Most of these online banking services also have apps you can download for always having a control of your money in your pocket. You can pay the balance of your telephones, your internet service and the rent of your home (if you have to) through online banking.

Risks and security advices while using online banking
If you are already an online banking user or you are considering being one, here are some advices to keep security, for there is no infallible system and you can help these to be safer and securer. What you can do is always good for making sure your security and your money’s.

Many online banking services keep you safe with logging you out every time you finish your operations, if you close the app or delay too long in doing something in it, it might close your account for your security, so you better remember always your user name and password.

It is not recommendable to have your password written in a paper or in any digital way inside your phone, always protect your device with a locking pattern, or even better, a password or a PIN code, these last two methods are more efficient and safer than the pattern that could stand marked on the screen of your smartphone.

Install a VPN app for your security
Sometimes when you connect to the public WiFi and start making your bank moves from your smartphone or laptop, there are hackers who are connected to the same network that you are, and they can hack your information even from your online banking accounts, everything you send could be intercepted by them.

The makers of the online banking services and apps nothing can do against that, but you can! There are some programs or apps that are known as VPN. What are the VPN programs and apps? The letters are for Virtual Protected Network, and it makes that all your information is encrypted and it makes it harder to be hacked and intercepted.

If you protect your phone and your laptop with VPN programs, the hackers will have it MUCH harder to intercept your data and force your online banking accounts.

Follow carefully all of these advises and your online banking account, passwords, and information will never be hacked! You can then research by yourself and keep reading for having enough knowledge about the system of online anti-hacking security you are willing to install and make use of.

At this moment me do not recommend you one specific VPN app or program, we just let you know about its existence and we strongly advise you to start researching about them, so you can find exactly the one you need for your phone, or your laptop.

Do not waste any time or disk space on installing a program that is too heavy and has too many features that you do not actually need, just look for the program you do need.

It is also recommendable that you read carefully every contract of terms and conditions and politic privacy of the apps you install and the programs you use in your laptop for applying the online banking services.

Benefits of online banking
If you have no fear to innovate and start tasting the great advantages of adapting to the new technologies, then, you will make good to start trying new systems of online banking like apps and webpages that are quick and easy to access, you will see in your own experience the next benefits:

First of all, you will reduce the time spent in executing financial operations. Only thing you need to do is to be connected to the internet from your home, your office or any mobile web (remember to use VPM systems to protect data), and then you will have all your money in your hand, easily manageable.

Have your bank at the reach of your hand
Make your bank moves from everywhere you are, you can do it from your laptop or your smartphone, only thing you need to do is to have internet access and then you can review your account state, transfer money and pay fees. Usually, these mobile online banking services are free and the only charge you could get is with your mobile company and the kind of plan you have contracted.

You can make more than one banking operation: moves, credit card pays, pay of services, recharge your air time and according to specialists, 20 per cent of people access to online banking through internet through these kind of mobile devices.

Keep the control of everything easily
You can have control of your money and account pays, and then stop losing any more time visiting the bank, with online banking aside of avoiding the printed account states, you can pay your accounts and maintain all your pay registries in only one place and very easy to find. If you prefer, you can also program automatic pays using your credit or debit card, like the pays of your services of water, electricity and telephone.

Stay safe with your money
Security with your operations is supported by your username and your personal unique password (and this is one you can change periodically), and also you have the token, that is a numeric code that changes every 60 seconds, and that you have to introduce to connect to the online banking.

Many online banking methods also work with security images, which are unique and are impossible to be identified or distinguished by a computer, so it cannot be violated with robotic systems.

The Saga Continues Between UnifiedOnline/Chanbond & The 13 Cable Companies

Fairfax, VA, 03-Aug-2018 — /EPR Financial News/ — UnifiedOnline, Inc. acquired 100 percent membership interest of ChanBond, LLC on 27th October 2015. That was a portfolio of patents through which the company understands that there is a technology that allows all the major cable companies to offer high-speed data transmission over the hybrid-fiber coaxial networks. UOIP purchased Chanbond for $5,000,000 payable before October 2020 along with 44,700,000 shares of the common stock. On 21st September 2015, Chanbond files a lawsuit in District Court of U.S. against the 13 biggest cable MSOs in the country. Chanbond claims that every cable multi-system operator in the country is virtually using DOCSIS 3.0+ which is infringing upon its patents. The three alleged infringement of wideband signal distribution system patents are:

Patent #1: 7,941,822

Patent # 2: 8,341,679

Patent # 3: 8,984,565

One of the major cable modem manufacturer Cisco filed eight interparty reviews on these patents. Six of the Cisco IPRs on patent 2, and 3 were not established for IPR. Only one of eight interparty reviews was established for IPR on March 3, 2017. Chanbond and the legal team of Mishcon de Reya New York LLP which is a respected law firm are appealing the single IPR that Cisco got.

ChanBond, LLC v. Cisco Systems, Inc.

Federal Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals

Case #:            0:18-bcaag-01886

Case Files: Apr 26, 2018

ARRIS International PLC also filed for five interparty reviews on these patents, but on July 27, 2018, the PTAB denied Arris a hearing because the petition is time-barred. Arris and Cisco are not being sued; only the thirteen cable companies are being sued for the infringement. However, the modem manufacturers are trying to invalidate the patents because their clients are at risk of patent infringement and Arris International has made it public that they have indemnified certain cable companies. This is from the “ARRIS Form” 10-K filed for March 31, 2018

“ChanBond v. MSOs, C.A. 15-cv-00848, et al, District of Delaware (RGA). On September 21, 2015, ChanBond filed suit against several MSOs alleging infringement of three US Patents. Certain of our customers have requested that we provide indemnification. The complaint requests unspecified damages for infringement and injunction against future infringement. To date, no evidence of infringement or damages has been introduced. It is premature to assess the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome. In the event of an unfavorable outcome, ARRIS may be required to indemnify the MSOs and/or pay damages for utilizing certain technology.

Throughout all of this UnifiedOnline has remained quiet and if you search UOIP on OTCMarkets the company is listed as Caveat Emptor (buyer beware) and as Delinquent SEC reporting. On October 26, 2014, UnifiedOnline Inc. submitted the necessary 13-D with the SEC (https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1097718/000135448815005061/uoip_sc13d.htm) that they were operating in the dark. The sole manager of the company is William R. Carter, Jr. and he is the one who has exclusive and sole authority over all the activities and operations.

During this time there have been no comments from UOIP, but do not let that cloud your judgment about the validity of the company, its patents, or this case. Bear in mind that UnifedOnline retains Mishcon de Reya New York LLP which is a respected law firm, representing a diverse portfolio of clients in more than 60 countries with more than 200 litigators across New York and London. UnifiedOnline has been under the microscope of the 13 largest cable companies in the United States (billion dollar corporations) and the Federal Court System. If there were a hint of scam or any wrongdoing no one would be wasting time, energy, and money to fight these patents. Do not confuse silence on UOIP’s part with sound legal recommendations.

Keep yourself informed with the court schedule, but keep in mind that this may settle or UOIP could be bought out any moment between now and the actual trail.

Consumer Loan Market Is Growing

New York, NY, USA, 2018-Jul-03 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — During last ten years, there were significant investments in the personal loans market. It was possible due to the inflow of capital and innovative technologies, which caused a doubling of the market.

Although, according to many financial websites, originations of personal loans are falling. It started with refusals to borrowers with a credit rating below 600, which didn’t take place since 2012.

Despite the decline in the origination of loans, all other data shows an increase of interest of the borrowers to this bank product.

The market for unsecured loans grew by 10.8% in 2017. And financial analytics are talking now about a great prospect for the development of this market segment.

According to statistics in 2017, 10% of respondents applied for a personal unsecured loan, a greater interest was shown to credit cards (65%) and auto loans (26%).

Banking CEOs are Concerned About FinTech

The lending market has a long history and now it is experiencing one of the most historical phases.

One of the biggest changes became a rapid development of FinTech (financial technologies).

Several years ago banks and other traditional financial structures were skeptical about online loans. Now 81% of banking CEOs are worried about such fast FinTech development.

Such concerns are reinforced by the fact that financial Internet structures have become quite competitive. Applying to a lender online, via a certain website connecting the customers with the direct service providers, the borrower gets a wide choice: unsecured personal loans, same day loans, debt consolidation etc. In addition to this sophisticated credit models and new anti-fraud mechanisms makes online financial services more attractive than banks.

The Most Popular Loans

According to the last statistic data, the most popular loan products are unsecured personal loans and installment loans. These loans are the most convenient and profitable for the borrowers. Same day payday loans are also popular, but they are most often used in urgent cases when money is needed for a short period of time. In such cases, 24/7 loans are more convenient, since it is easy to get and the money is being accrued to the bank account of a borrower in short period of time.

The thing that makes personal loans one of the most attractive types of financial products is its uniqueness. It can be used for any purpose: making a big purchase, paying for a wedding or vacation, etc. However, the most common reasons for obtaining a personal loan currently are:

1. Debt consolidation (35%).
2. Household expenses (19%).
3. Medical expenses (9.9%).

Statistic data shows that the purpose of the loan doesn’t affect the chances of the borrower to get approved.

Summing up, the consumer credit market is experiencing rapid growth. Personal loans are attractive to the borrowers because of the affordable interest rate and quick receipt of funds. FinTech is developing and expanding, thus the number of lenders increases and the borrowers have a wide choice.
