Willian Skelley is a New York based alternative investment professional and also the founder of iFunding. He is known for coining the term accredited crowdfunding, a term he coined with the year 2012. It is a concept that allows accredited investors to collect small amounts of capital so that they can raise a significant amount of money and use it to make an investment that an individual cannot have access. The organization he founded, iFunding, is an online based real estate crowdfunding platform. Before founding iFunding he worked as a principal at Rose Park Advisors. He has worked with various organizations such as General Electric, Bain Capital, and as an advisor of several start-up companies. CrowdfundInsider tells us William was recently made a member of the exclusive group of “Next Generation of Real Estate Leaders.”
iFunding held its annual dinner in New York. The dinner was an only invite association that was put together by Michael Stoler. Michael Stoler is the MD of Madison Reality Capital and a host of weekly television show “The Stoler Report: NY’s Business Report.” The organizers invited some of the biggest names from top real estate companies around the world such as Kushner Companies, CIT, Bank of America, Cushman and Wakefield, Merrill Lynch and Carlyle Group.
CNBC discovered that William Skelley is among the first people that took advantage of the Title II ruling of the JOBS Act in 2012 and set up iFunding based on the concept of real estate crowdfunding. iFunding is now recognized as one of the most successful online real estate platforms for crowdfunding. They are involved in facilitating debt and raising preferred equity for a broad range of real estate properties such as multi-family residences and apartment house estates, apartment towers, hotels and resorts, retail locations, malls, offices, single-family homes, and mixed-use buildings.
At the organization, Skelley described in an interview that he is responsible for overseeing business development activities. He has overseen more than 40 real estate projects with an estimated value of more than 250 million. iFunding is open for investors who are interested in high-quality real estate deals with a minimum of $5000 capital. The organization is responsible for overseeing the deals throughout its lifespan. One of the aspects that have made iFunding to grow and be successful is because they provide comprehensive details and transparency to each investor on how their investment are being utilized.
William Skelley will participate in one episode of The Stoler Report in the Spring of 2016. Be sure to watch for an announcement on the iFunding Facebook, which Skelley himself maintains.

Enterprise Radio recently sat down and had a talk with Sanjay Shah. Entrepreneurial Podcast is a way that business and finance professionals can sit down and offer advice and guidance to those who wish to join their ranks as business owners and leaders. Mr. Shah is well qualified to speak on this show for not only the thirteen plus businesses he runs in London, but also for his work as founder of the charity Autism Rocks.
Mr Shah started his career in medicine but decided it was not right for him. He commenced a career in investment banking where he learned how to grow wealth and run a large corporation. He was facing layoff and decided to start his own company, Solo Capital. This brokerage began with four to five employees and now has more than 50.
In more recent years he is best known for his founding and work with Autism Rocks. This organization offers advice and information for families, parents, and patients who have autism. He feels that the most invaluable thing he can offer these individuals is the knowledge to know how to fight and tackle this disease.
His hope is that through the yearly concert proceeds, donations and information he can help researchers to find a cure for autism. He was most moved to help find a cure when his own son was diagnosed with the disease at the tender age of 4. Shah realized that while he had been donating money to help the cause, he did not really know much about autism or its secondary complications.
When asked in the interview about business in general and how to start one, he offered some sage advice. First and foremost is to never think that one has enough money. Something will always come up and expenses can get out of hand. Secondly he warns to not take on too much responsibility.
Shah warns that a business has many aspects and many chores to be done. No one person should try to tackle all of these responsibilities alone. Be sure to have a support system and some help when just getting started.
There is just something majestic about watching sailboats. I have been fascinated by them since I was a kid. The idea of using some cloth to harness the wind to take you where you want to go seems almost magical. Even as an adult I’m still enthralled. I was a volunteer for several years with the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and I was always eager to go out on patrols of Lake Michigan and watch the regattas. And it seems that the love of sailing appeals to men and women from many walks of life, as in the case of one of the richest men in America, billionaire Dick DeVos who along with his team Volpe recently won the Melges 32 Lauderdale Cup hosted by the Lauderdale Yacht Club on April 3rd, 2016.
Far more than just a competitive sailor, DeVos is a remarkably successful businessman and entrepreneur whose business ventures have included Dick’s time at Amway, owning the NBA franchise the Orlando Magic, and the investment management firm The Windquest Group. Dick DeVos has also been active in the political arena, having been elected to the Michigan State Board of Education, an appointment to the Grand Valley State University Board of Control, and even made a run in 2006 for the office of Governor of Michigan.
Dick DeVos also contributes greatly to the community. DeVos’s philanthropic works include work with the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation which raises money for a wide variety of charitable and civic organizations including children’s hospitals, artistic development programs, scholarships and grants to countless schools, colleges, and universities.
While I myself do not have a yacht or a beautiful sailboat of my own, I am still able to enjoy watching the races. In the distance I can watch the men and women pulling at the lines, trying their best to win their race. In the end, the sailors are people like everyone else, and occasionally you find out that behind the scenes are doing far more to help anyone than you’ll ever know. And frankly that fills me with great contentment.
Brad Reifler, the head of Forefront Management Group, an investment bank that also manages money for institutional funds and the wealthy, has published an article giving his 5 tips on investing.
Reifler has been concerned about the ways ordinary people have to invest ever since his 529 college savings plan was worth less than it began with when his two of his daughters needed money to attend college. But the second event shocked him even more. When his father-in-law turned 80, he gave Brad his life’s savings to invest for him. However, most of the techniques and strategies his wife’s father wanted Brad to use for him were not available because he was not an accredited investor.
After that, Reifler began a public fund that would make money like the wealthiest people and yet still be open to ordinary such as his father-in-law.
According to Twitter Reifler’s first tip is to be careful. Consider the risk. Look at all the expenses. Ordinary, actively-managed open-end mutual funds have a lot of expenses people don’t understand. Depending on what they invest in, there may be a lot more risk than the average person realizes. Start out by creating a balance sheet of your personal assets and liabilities. Using that, decide what are good investing goals for you.
The second tip is to care about the safety of your money.
Three: Diversify. There are other places to put your money into besides the stock market. Don’t depend on it alone.
Four: Do your due diligence on the manager of any fund you put your money into. If you don’t trust them, don’t hand your money over to them.
Five: Keep your mind on why you are investing. Remember your goals. And when you find a fund or strategy that works, stick with it.
Reifler adds that he wants his fund to be for the ordinary investor, not like Wall Street. About.me has more on Brad, and his tips. But for the full picture, read the Reuters reports for yourself.

The 2008 financial meltdown may be old news to some people, but to the people that lived through the disaster, it will never be old news. Employees of Bear Stearns lived through a nightmare. And for people like David Faber the CNBC reporter, and hedge fund investor Kyle Bass that nightmare will impact their lives forever. Kyle Bass was the Bear Stearns executive that gave Faber the information that Goldman Sachs would not accept counterparty risk for Bear Stearns.
The outcome of the 2008 financial crisis is still causing anguish and stress for people eight years later. But Kyle Bass, the man that predicted and bet that the meltdown would happen, made a fortune because he was in the right place at the right time and saw an opportunity. Bass is a hedge fund manager, and he was called a genius when people discovered that he was one of the few Wall Street mavens that went against the current and told the world the real story. UsefulStooges was first to expose him in their Kyle Bass The Frantic Investments of a Desperate Gambler article.
But the days of Bass being a genius are long gone. Mr. Bass is still a hedge fund manager, and his company, Hayman Capital Management LP, is still betting on risky assets. His track record over the last eight years hasn’t lived up to his image as a genius, however. Bass was an investor and a friend of the former president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner did more to hurt Argentina than to help the economy of the country. When Fernández de Kirchner decided to default on Argentina’s debt bonds Bass and his investors took the huge financial hit.
Argentina wasn’t the only financial debacle Bass has been involved in since he had his five minutes of fame eight years ago. Bass tried to shift the blame away from General Motors to protect his investment when GM faulty airbags and a dysfunctional power steering mechanism caused a number of fatalities. Bass blamed the victims, not GM on national TV.
The most recent legal scam that Bass is championing is shorting pharmaceutical stocks. Bass and his partner contest drug patents, and when that information is made public, the value of stock in the pharmaceutical company that holds the patent drops, and Bass makes a bundle of cash.
Insiders say Bass has lost a lot of money over the last 24 months.
