Investments “from God” are the most sustainable

Investments “from God” are the most sustainable
You can work in the financial market with “God’s grace.” Religious denominations offer adherents investments that are guaranteed to please God and allow hierarchs to maintain godliness in the eyes of the nourished flock. Religious organizations have long ceased to exist through donations and have become diversified corporations.

Today, all large and even small churches control their own investment funds. They invest funds received from believers in securities and conduct other commercial activities. According to Newsweek magazine, one of the most famous Protestant sects, the Mormons (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), only officially owns a financial company with assets of $ 3 billion, and its general condition was estimated by the magazine in June 2011 at $ 30 billion.

One wallet is good, but many are crowdfunding!

What unites the Eiffel Tower, modern Internet startups, the election campaign of Barack Obama and the feature film “Iron Sky” The energetic civilization of the Sun?

MegaFon, one of the largest mobile operators in Russia, is getting ready for an IPO on November 1. The company plans to settle on the London LSE and MICEX-RTS. During the IPO, the operator can sell approximately 15% of the shares. The majority of the shares will be placed by the Swedish-Finnish shareholder of TeliaSonera, the rest will be the treasury shares of the operator directly.

Two of the three largest Russian telecommunications companies have already placed their shares on the stock exchange. VimpelCom entered the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 1996, and MTS in 2000. Today, companies have a capitalization of $ 18.7 billion and $ 16.7 billion, respectively. Three leading players control 80% of the mobile services market.

“The placement of Megafon already seriously affects MTS quotes, drawing institutional funds from the last funds. However, after the placement, we can expect a rebound in MTS securities. As for Megafon, most likely, the company’s valuation at the placement will include a premium, but long-term its papers may become the most interesting in Russian telecom, “said Ilya Rachenkov, an analyst at Investcafe.
