Invesment Management Firms

Why Morningstar Thinks Capital Group Is The Best

In its new stewardship Grade, which was recently issued for Capital Group’s American Funds, Morningstar awarded the company an A. The overall grade includes corporate culture, fund manager incentives, fund board quality, regulatory history and fees.

According to Morningstar’s Janet Yang, Capital Group and all its affiliations, including American Funds, maintains its top position among the stewards of investors’ capital. The firm’s corporate culture of continuous investing, commitment to long-term results, and its devotion to financial advisers has earned it a reputation as the largest asset manager in the world. Capital Group has been in business for eight years, which has given it extensive experience in surviving the uncertain fixed-income environment. Capital Group has over $1.4 trillion worth of assets and more than 7,000 employees.

He has successfully created a favorable environment for the company to grow and compete effectively. Tim has exhibited the ability to sustain the company’s culture of continued development. The firm is famed for its multi-manager investing system that was introduced in the 1950s. The system allows a dozen or more managers to manage portions of a fund’s portfolio independently. The multi-manager system results in less volatile funds and helps during the transition of portfolio managers where investors do not experience jarring change.

Capital Group has improved on their transparency as they are exposing their asset outflows and new reports for advisors and institutions. Advisors and institutions can now access sector exposure for each portfolio manager, top holdings and portfolio characteristics. However, the company discloses portfolio managers who are running small percentage of assets, which the firm considers as the trial period. Capital Group’s investors benefit from long term investment teams around. They include portfolio managers and the firm’s analysts. In other firms, transitioning means retirement or movement of managers between firms while analysts not considered permanent.

Lip Moisturizers

The Evolution of Smooth

What is the “Evolution of Smooth”? You already know! It’s those adorable pastel lip balms you can never escape from at the stores! EOS is the cutest and most popular way to acquire healthy and silky smooth lips in a matter of no time! Even the ever-so-famous Miley Cyrus and Christina Aguilera can’t escape the obsession, and they’re smackers are always looking luscious and beautiful!

Sanjiv Mehra, co-founder and managing partner for EOS lip balm couldn’t have been any more right when he thought lip balms needed a new makeover! In addition to ultimate effectiveness, packaging is a plus and often the deciding factor in most purchases! It’s nice and terribly refreshing to see a whole new take on lip balm after spending far too long scanning the aisles for one small, bland tube of lip balm at Target supermarkets.

Let’s talk a little more about the design: how many times have you had to purchase yet another lip balm because you lost the tube in your purse? EOS had thoughtfully designed the circular shape and adorable colors of their lip balms with this common dilemma in mind. In addition to this, they recognized that lip balms have always been treated as more of a unisex product, when studies show that women are actually the ones who buy and use it the most. So EOS decided it was time to make things a little more exciting – and cute – and design an Ulta sold lip balm that not only did the trick, but was easy to find in your purse..and made you feel cute just by owning one! Bonus? EOS founders used their own funds and startup capital.

Now, what’s actually in these lip balms? All natural ingredients! As Racked.com reveals, this makes sense why it would be the second best selling lip balm in the country, right under “Burt’s Bees”. Not too shabby! In creating this product, it was important to the company that the lip balm addresses all five senses; the look of the packaging and the orb, the feel of the smooth balm and the orb in your hand (both very soft), the smell and taste of the balm itself, and even the surprisingly satisfying clicking sound the orb makes when you screw it closed. EOS was a very thought out product, and was developed with the utmost care and concern for those who would be using it. http://www.target.com/p/eos-organic-lip-balm-sphere-strawberry-sorbet/-/A-13731791

Ultimately, The EOS company wanted to focus on creating an emotional connection with the user, rather than “simply being another commodity”. This says a lot, do you think “Chapstick” gives you this much thought? Doubt it.

A company that cares, truly. All around, EOS lip balm is a feel good product! To read more in depth about the company and the exclusive interview EOS did with FAST COMPANY, follow the link below and be pleasantly satisfied!

OncoTarget Published Study Says E-Cigarettes Kill Gum Tissue

Is one of the most popular nicotine replacement tools more dangerous than we thought? According to a research study, published in Oncotarget, e-cigarettes can be a detriment to gum tissue.

Researchers at the University of Rochester have studied the effects of e-cigarettes on oral health. The result: The fumes of an e-cigarette cause cells to emit inflammatory proteins, which in turn trigger stress in cells. This can lead to numerous disorders of the oral cavity. “The extent of damage to the gums depends on how often individuals smoke e-cigarettes and how much they use,” explained Ph.D. professor of Environmental Medicine at the UR School of Medicine and Dentistry, Dr. Irfan Rahman.

Not only are the fumes dangerous, but researchers say certain flavors – some more, some less can even damage the cells even more. Dr. Rahman points out, “the e-cigarette is not worry-free fun.” Researchers have found that there are several other dangerous components found in e-cigarette fluids that also damage the lungs. Normally, the lungs can get rid of foreign substances by coughing. Another study shows that the vapors from e-cigarettes diminish the cough reflex.

The oral mucosa is our first line of defense against microbial infections, making it all the more important that the mucous membrane remains intact. Such damage to the protective oral mucosa can have health consequences, like increased risk of mouth infections, and inflammation and gum disease.

For more than a decade, battery-operated e-cigarettes have been considered by the public a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. Instead of burning tobacco, the evaporators heat a nicotine-containing liquid, that supposedly, do not pollute the air or the body. However, studies have shown that the ingredients are not completely harmless, but rather cell-damaging.

Another study, published in the Journal of Cellular Physiology concludes that after just one day of smoking an e-cigarette for only 15 minutes, the death rate of the oral cells rose fro m a normal 2 percent to 18 percent after vapor exposure. After two days, 40 percent of the mucous membranes were already severely damaged or dead.

Nicotine from tobacco smoke has long been known that it inhibits blood flow to the gums, thereby promoting severe periodontitis. If the e-cigarette contains nicotine, its vapor acts similarly.

LED Lights, Light Bulbs

Better Sleep Patterns With WiFi Enabled LED Lights By Gooee

It has been shown that there is a correlation between the artificial lights humans spend their days and nights under, and insomnia. The human eye can confuse being under office lights and bright lights in the evening hours at home with sunlight, and it throws off their natural circadian rhythms. The circadian rhythms regulate waking and sleeping hours based on how many hours are spent in the sunlight. The body naturally wants to shut off and sleep at night, but because there are so many hours being spent under artificial light, it becomes harder for the body to switch into sleep mode.

 

Innovations in LED light like the ones developed by Gooee, can help to automate human health by being able to wirelessly control LED lights. If the human body naturally needs to wind down around evening hours, the lights in the home can be adjusted to a dimmer setting with the touch of a button while keeping one task lamp bright for completing what needs to be done in evening hours. This simple adjustment can be made with the touch of the button on a tablet and it will bring all of the LED lights or LED sockets down to the ideal dimness to promote sleep and relaxation while that bright task light still allows for things to get done. And then when it’s time to off for bed, the lights switch off behind the person leaving the room, and they can enter a bedroom lit ideally for sleep.
