SCOTT CUNDILL (CEO) NEW ERA

NewERA sues to stop bank securitisations December 21 2012 at 08:47am By Wiseman Khuzwayo. Comment on this story Scott Cundill, chairman of the New Economic Rights Alliance. The New Economic Rights Alliance (NewERA) is making an urgent application in the South Gauteng High Court today seeking to interdict the big four banks from securitising the loans of their clients.

 NewERA says the interdict, if granted, will bring relief to more than 1 000 consumers who face losing their homes, cars and other assets due to the non-payment of their debt to banks this festive season. NewERA describes itself as a community of people who are seeking transparency in the banking and corporate finance sectors. Chairman Scott Cundill is the founder and chief executive of Majestic Interactive, a software marketing platform that claims to generate database response rates of over 1 000 percent above the industry average.

 In August NewERA issued summonses to Absa, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank, as well as the Reserve Bank, in which it sought a full investigation of the banking system. Among the 65 respondents are special purpose vehicles (SPVs). NewERA says the banks use these entities as “conduits” to sell off bundles of loans, which are then traded on various bond markets and stock exchanges in a process known as securitisation. The securitisation of “toxic assets” by Wall Street bank Lehman Brothers and others caused the subprime meltdown in the US, which in turn led to the 2008 global financial crisis. Subprime loans were mortgages granted without a deposit to clients who had poor or non-existent credit histories. 

 According to the Banking Association of SA website, local banks securitise loans worth about R30 billion a month. NewERA says banks bundle these loans together using an SPV and sell them to third party investors via stock and bond markets. These investors include pension funds and some bankrupt municipalities. NewERA says banks are not upfront on this issue because once a bank securitises a loan, it loses all rights to the asset...READ ON

The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty. 

The first is that despite the apparent "out of the blue" nature of his death…

The Truth About Whey Protein And Your Nasty Belly Fat

A simple way to keep your muscles strong as you get older (and it isn't exercise) 
This one step can strengthen aging muscles, boost your immune system, and even help you manage your weight.
It’s normal for our muscles to lose tone and become a bit flabby as we age. But just because it’s normal, it doesn’t mean it’s good.

Not only are flabby muscles unsightly, they’re also a sign that we’re losing muscle mass and strength.

Losing muscle mass makes it harder to do the things you take for granted. Like walking up stairs. Lifting a bag of groceries. Or recovering your balance instead of falling.

Losing strength also makes you more prone to injuries that can keep you from enjoying the activities you've loved for years. It's a major reason people lose mobility and end up in nursing homes.

We all want to stay strong and vital for as long as possible. So many of us turn to exercise. While a regular exercise program can help, it’s often not enough. We need to feed our muscles, too. What…
