ATLANTA – October 31, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. (www.swmc.com) CEO Pavan Agarwal presented at this year’s “Sales Mastery” – the biggest training event in the real estate calendar. The three-day workshop organized by Agent Academy was held at the Atlanta Convention Center, from Oct. 24-27, 2022. 

Teaming up with leading real estate coach Bill Pipes, Pavan Agarwal, founder and CEO of Sun West & Celligence, presented at “Sales Mastery” and displayed just how the company’s empathetic AI technology has brought and continues to build equality of access and service across all demographic and economic segments.

Through showcasing their latest advanced AI-technology loan product, Morgan™ (a groundbreaking application that is simply an underwriter at your fingertips), visitors to Sun West’s event booth saw how Morgan delivers value without expectation on a continuous basis, which is the cornerstone of Bill Pipes’ and Jon Cheplak’s coaching principles. 

Sun West offered workshop guests a chance to meet and greet the innovative team behind the revolutionized technology, ask direct questions to founder & CEO Pavan Agarwal and learn all about Morgan™’s cutting-edge industry progress that allows the company to deliver real value by eliminating unnecessary fees and helping achieve True Fair Lending for all.

Speaking on Sun West’s event participation, Pavan Agarwal explained, “When professionals focus on giving and adding value to their community, then customer loyalty follows. AI-powered Morgan delivers value by giving immediate solutions to buyers with complex financing circumstances that real estate and lending professionals typically pass by due to the time effort required. The housing market has been hit on both ends: high-interest rates and high home prices. As a result, more borrowers than ever are struggling to qualify for a mortgage, and real estate agents desperately need Morgan, an expert underwriter at your fingertips.”

Sun West’s involvement at “Sales Mastery” followed their recent presentation at the Virtual Connect Now: INMAN conference (events.inman.com). You can check out their Morgan™ demonstration hosted by Pavan Agarwal here.

Credello: How Veterans Are Hurt Financially by Hurricanes

NEW YORK – October 31, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

It’s hurricane season once again, and this year, parts of the U.S. were hit especially hard. Hurricanes have an effect on a wide variety of individuals and families. Current and former military members are some of those who this year’s major storms have impacted.

There’s some good news, though: debt relief for veterans affected by hurricanes is available. We will take some time right now to talk about the details of this program. We’ll also discuss how recent hurricanes have harmed veterans and their families.

How Have the Recent Hurricanes Impacted Veterans?

There were two hurricanes this year that had a catastrophic impact on some veterans and their families. Fiona formed the second week of September of this year. It began as a Category 4 over the Atlantic Ocean and caused damage in several countries. 

Ian originated in the third week of September and struck Florida as a Category 4. It was the most devastating hurricane to hit the state since 1935.

Many former service members call Florida home, so it’s not surprising that a disproportionate number of those impacted were veterans. Some of them had their primary residences wiped out by Ian. Others had vehicles and various material possessions destroyed. Still, others were physically harmed by the hurricanes and had to pay for lengthy hospital stays.    

What is the Debt Relief Program?

The hurricane debt relief program is aimed toward helping veterans who were directly impacted by recent hurricanes Fiona and Ian. 

The VA, which is shorthand for the Department of Veteran Affairs, quickly took steps to implement debt relief for veterans that the two hurricanes we’ve mentioned impacted. The VA allows veterans and their families to suspend debt payments if they were affected by either of the two recent hurricanes.   

What Debt Payments Can This Program Suspend?

The VA set up a website and phone number that veterans and their families who suffered losses due to this year’s hurricanes can use. These individuals can suspend payments for medical care and pharmacy copayments. They can also defer payment on debts covering essentials like food and shelter.

Simply put, the program is intended to temporarily suspend the need for veterans and their families to pay back the VA for outstanding debts in the face of this pair of natural disasters. Any veterans or their families who wish to see whether they’re eligible can contact the VA using either the phone number or website set up for this purpose.

This Program Can Help Vets Impacted by Hurricanes

The two hurricanes that caused so much havoc over the past few weeks are almost unprecedented. Nothing similar has happened to the state of Florida for nearly the past hundred years. It’s likely that climate change is fueling larger and more unpredictable storm systems, and these types of weather events might become more commonplace as the years pass.

Veterans and their families who were directly impacted by hurricanes this year may have high medical bills. Others might be dealing with the loss of their homes, vehicles, possessions, and so forth.

The VA has made a phone number and website available that veterans and their relatives can use if they need relief from any outstanding debts they owe. It is not a long-term solution. However, it will provide some welcome short-term relief for individuals who served this country through military service, as well as their families.

Any vets who are interested should reach out to the VA. This entity exists to help out veterans in any way that it can. Debt relief is one way to ease economic hardship following a pair of violent weather events that rocked this country.

Credello: Halloween Candy Prices Are Insane This Year: How to Survive It.

NEW YORK – October 31, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

It’s Halloween. That probably means decorations are up in your neighborhood. Perhaps you’re putting together your costume if you’re hosting a party or attending one.

Maybe you’re also in an area that sees a lot of trick-or-treaters. If so, you’ll want to stock up on plenty of candy to satisfy the ravenous hordes.

You may have noticed, though, that candy prices are higher than ever. It’s no surprise when you look at inflation and how it’s impacting virtually everything you typically buy. Some estimates put candy prices at about 13% higher than they were last year.  

Before you start looking into debt consolidation to pay for fun-size Twizzlers and Snickers bars, read this article. We’ve got some tips for how you can shave dollars and cents off of your Halloween candy budget.  

1. Buy in Bulk at Costco or Sam’s Club

One thing you might do if you get overrun with trick-or-treaters each year is to hit Costco, Sam’s Club, or any other store where you can buy candy in bulk at discounted prices. Many of these stores stock larger bags of candy weighing several pounds. You can usually find ones that feature M&M’s, Skittles, and other name-brand favorites.

Ideally, you’ll already have a membership to one of these stores. If you don’t, it’s probably not worth buying a membership just so you can save a few dollars on your Halloween candy purchase. 

Instead, you might try to think of any friend, neighbor, or relative who has a Costco or Sam’s Club membership. Maybe they’d be willing to let you borrow it so you can make a run and get the supplies you need. 

2. Collaborate with Another House

If the prospect of paying inflated prices for bulk Halloween candy is leaving a sour taste in your mouth, you may also think about going in on a candy purchase with a neighbor on your block. If you go this route, you can either invite them over or else you can turn off all the lights at your house and go over to their place. 

When you do, you can take turns passing out Halloween candy to the trick-or-treaters from a single location. If only one of your homes is passing out candy rather than both, you can cut your candy spending in half.

3. Compare Prices and Buy Bigger Bags

One final thing you can do is compare prices on larger bags of candy. Look at 250-count, 300-count, or 500-count sizes. Then, divide the price by the number of individual candies in each bag. 

If you compare the prices of large bags of candy at bulk discount stores, your local grocery, and online sellers like Amazon or Oriental Trading Company, you should be able to figure out the best deal. Make sure to leave yourself enough time to get the necessary supplies before the holiday. That might mean either a trip to the store or ordering a bulk candy delivery if you can arrange it before Oct. 31. 

Determine the Best Move and Get the Candy You Need

Comparing prices on the larger bags of fun-size candies before you make your purchase can potentially save you some money as the holiday approaches. You might find that a Costco or Sam’s Club is your best bet. If so, use your membership or borrow a card from a neighbor, friend, or relative.

If that’s not going to shave enough cash off your Halloween candy budget, think about teaming up with another household rather than both houses handing out candy. That way, you can still recoil in terror from every scary costume, but you’ll save some money that can go toward paying bills and other pressing expenditures.

Vive Funds’ Veena Jetti Shares Importance of Diversity for Global Diversity Month

The founder of a multifamily real estate investment firm speaks on her struggles and why women are starting to flock to the real estate industry.

DALLAS – October 31, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Veena Jetti, founder of Vive Funds, a private equity firm specializing in multifamily real estate investments, met with National Today to discuss her experiences and struggles climbing the corporate ladder in a male-dominated industry. The feature interview is a part of a series of pieces by National Today in celebration of Global Diversity Awareness Month. The series showcases the successes and challenges females and minorities currently face while thriving in the corporate world. 

According to data compiled by Zippia.com, only 31% of real estate investors in 2019 were female. Per Jetti, one of the most significant issues women in real estate investing face is the constant challenge of having to prove their expertise time and time again while their male counterparts are generally given the benefit of the doubt. She recalled multiple instances throughout her career in which she was assumed to be someone’s assistant rather than the founder of a company with over one billion dollars in transactions. 

“We face a lack of women and minorities in leadership positions even though we are just as capable of driving success in our businesses,” said Jetti. “Having strong, successful role models and mentors is vital for the next generation of women and minorities to succeed.”

Jetti went on to detail her recurring issues with imposter syndrome. After jump-starting her career with a $1.2MM capital raise, she spent months consumed with the idea that she was bound to fail and put her family in a poor financial position. Having confided her fears at the time only to her husband, Jetti now reveals her struggles when detailing her professional journey to help young entrepreneurs who may find it beneficial to hear from someone on “the other side” of their career. 

“I can now raise $1.2MM with one phone call,” said Jetti. 

“Currently, I am doing deals north of $100MM, and I still have those moments of feeling like I am going to fail. What helps me move forward is my mantra that if I’m not uncomfortable, then I’m not aiming high enough. We do not grow when we are maintaining the status quo; it takes discomfort and challenges to achieve new heights,” Jetti added.

When asked about the historically low numbers of women in executive positions within the real estate industry, Jetti highlighted how unconscious biases amplify the problematic nature of the corporate ladder. While appreciative of the emergence of positive changes that are helping to rebalance the scales in terms of leadership diversity, she was adamant in her desire for more to be done. Attributing much of her leadership development to the minority women she met in executive positions early in her career, Jetti now hopes to serve as a similar figure for young women and minorities fighting their way to the top. 

Vive Funds has taken an active role in transforming the landscape for women in real estate. The firm has implemented multiple policies to attract and retain top female talent. The creation of said policies was shaped by discussions that members of the Vive Funds team had with women to discover some of the common challenges they faced in the industry. The team found some of the most important topics of discussion related to work-life balance and company support when starting families or tending to personal priorities outside work. 

“At Vive Funds, we have strived to be the leader in this change. By employing a few policy updates like unlimited PTO, paid parental leave for all new parents, including adoptive parents, flex scheduling, remote work, and a family planning reimbursement, our employees report higher levels of job satisfaction and that comes through clearly in the quality of work they deliver,” said Jetti.

“It is a simple concept that many seem to ignore — when employees, especially women overlooked for years, feel valued, they will also value your company. While I have seen more women in the workforce and leadership than when I started, we have far to go to reach true balance in the workplace.”

Jetti encouraged companies interested in promoting diversity and inclusion to engage in meaningful conversations with minority employees and enact changes based on their feedback, noting how impactful transformations are derived from listening to their stories and the stories of other minorities in the community. 

Vive Funds does not work or partner with any companies that do not hold similar values in this regard. Jetti has found that many companies need to be made aware that they are plagued by poor diversity and inclusion practices. As a company, Vive Funds does not remain silent on these issues, giving companies a chance to rectify the problem by installing more minorities and women into leadership positions before cutting ties. 

“If they choose not to make any changes, they not only lose our business, but they also lose the value of diversity of thought that comes from having minorities and women in positions of power. Money is a driving force in change and you can make a massive impact by choosing to do business with people who also value diversity,” said Jetti.

INDIANAPOLIS – October 31, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Designed by lifelong contractors with a combined 40+ years in design and construction, the Elmore family created The Luxury Pergola with a mission to offer durable patio covers at affordable prices.

With its direct-to-consumer model, the brand’s innovative approach offers a premium way to cover your patio with a roof that opens and closes to keep out the rain or to provide shade. Designed to last a lifetime, it’s made of durable, electrostatically powder-coated, aerospace-grade aluminum, capable of handling up to 160 mph wind speeds or 4,000 lbs of snow, whether the louvers are open or closed. Years of development have made the system easy to install, and production efficiencies keep the product affordable for most homeowners.

Co-founder Stacy Elmore commented, “When we were raising our kids, we would’ve loved a covered area to enjoy with them, but all the options at the time were too expensive, required yearly maintenance, or rotted over time. Our motorized louvered pergola provides protection from sun and rain at a price point that’s within reach for most families. Our customers can experience the same luxury outdoor living at a more budget-friendly price.”

Designed, extruded, cut, and machined in the USA, The Luxury Pergola doesn’t offer a lower price by sacrificing quality. Compare this motorized pergola to any other more expensive competitor, and you’ll find it’s just as strong. The Luxury Pergola also offers trim packages not available anywhere else. Stacy comments, “It was important to our family to keep it Made in the USA. At a time when quality can depend on where the parts are sourced, we’re steadfast in our belief that the best products in the world are made in America.”

Because customers save money on the material and install it themselves, homeowners will enjoy a higher return on their investment due to the quality and price of this pergola. The easy-to-follow video and written installation guides make construction as quick as a few hours. With a variety of finish colors and trim packages to choose from, The Luxury Pergola offers the best value pergola on the market.

LONDON – October 31, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Proxymity, the leading digital investor communication platform, announced today that J.P. Morgan has gone live with its digital proxy voting service, Vote Connect, in Denmark. The successful deployment follows similar rollouts in Belgium, France, Australia, and New Zealand.

Proxymity Vote Connect is the digital proxy service powered by Proxymity’s investor communications platform. The service allows “golden source” meeting announcements and agendas to be published directly from issuers to investors. Investors can then send votes in real time to issuers or their agents without the need for manual intervention and receive digital confirmation that their votes have been cast, helping everyone in the ecosystem save both time and money.

For J.P. Morgan’s Securities Services clients, the connection with Proxymity will continue to substantially improve their voting experiences, resulting in enhanced deadlines and further improving the vote confirmation process. 

Proxymity’s digital-native platform has been built on highly scalable technology which allows secure end to end connectivity between issuers, issuer agents, custodians, and investors, providing transparency to all participants in the proxy voting chain. In addition, Proxymity natively ensures strict compliance with latest regulations including the EU Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II). 

Speaking at the beginning of the Vote Connect rollout in October last year, Hannah Elson, Head of Global Custody, J.P. Morgan Securities Services said, “Investor communications are being transformed by replacing legacy manual processes with smart digital automation.” She continued, “Working with Proxymity reflects our commitment to providing the most innovative solutions to improve client experience, at the same time as reducing the cost and complexity of providing even higher levels of service. We are delighted to be the first major global custodian to go live on this platform for Denmark.”

In 2020, and again in 2022 as part of Proxymity’s Series B fundraising, J.P. Morgan invested in Proxymity as part of an industry-leading consortium, recognising the benefits of a widely adopted platform across the investment ecosystem.

Dean Little, Co-Founder and CEO of Proxymity, said: “We are proud to grow and deepen our working relationship with J.P. Morgan, enabling them to extend Proxymity’s solutions to their blue-chip clients across the world. This is another fantastic milestone that was made possible by the agility and dedication of the J.P. Morgan and Proxymity teams and is a great example for our industry of what can be achieved.”

About Proxymity

Proxymity connects the world’s ecosystem of issuers, intermediaries, and investors digitally in real time, bringing unprecedented transparency, efficiency, and accuracy to traditional paper-based processes. Trusted by the world’s largest financial institutions, it is the leading digital investor communications platform, serving over twenty-five markets world-wide.

Our solutions give public companies confidence that their AGM/EGM agendas are transmitted as “golden source” and provide institutional investors with the time they need to research and vote on corporate decisions, as well as actual digital confirmation that their votes have been received. The digital-native platform, built on highly scalable technology, provides full compliance with the latest regulations such as the Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II).

Proxymity promotes enhanced environmental, social, and governance (ESG) by improving communication between issuers and investors and making it easier for intermediaries to be efficient, timely and compliant when servicing their clients.
