The subsidiary of the Unicaja Bank Group, Caja España-Duero, and the Reciprocal Guarantee Corporation (SGR) Iberaval have signed an agreement on Thursday, whereby the financial entity will make available to entrepreneurs and small businesses 19 million euros more for the formalization of loans backed by the SGR.

The president of Iberaval, José Rolando Álvarez, and the general director of Commercial Banking of Caja España-Duero, Carlos Ranera, signed on Thursday the agreement between the two entities, which maintain a ‘joint venture risk’ of 109 million euros, distributed in 1,500 operations in force with companies of the Community.

Now, for the years 2014 and 2015, another 19 million euros will be injected to formalize loans that will be mainly directed to new investments, requests for working capital and will also place the “focus” on internationalization.

José Rolando Álvarez has stressed the importance of having a “regional bank involved with the economy” as he sees what happens with Caja España de Inversiones, Salamanca and Soria (Ceiss) and what has added the support of Iberaval so that companies can take forward the credit operations.

Thus, he recalled, Iberaval has already endorsed a total of 6,900 transactions formalized with Caja España-Duero for an approximate value of 500 million euros, of which 1,500 operations with a live risk of 109 million euros remain in force.

Álvarez has insisted that the current economic situation requires society to help “small entrepreneurs” because it believes that if you want to create jobs that “respond to Spaniards who demand a job” you should have “a lot” more into account for SMEs. ”

In this regard, he recalled that the great “frontier” that these companies “can not overcome” for their growth is the term of funding something that in the operations endorsed by Iberaval, such as the agreement signed today, can reach up to 15 years in what refers to investments and 12 years in circulation.

In both cases, with the support of the SGR, operations are allowed up to a total of 600,000 euros and with grace periods of up to two years to “further encourage the amortization of the amounts committed.”

For his part, Carlos Ranera stressed that since the past months of May and June has begun to perceive an increase in the number of credit transactions formalized in the subsidiary of Unicaja Banco, which has linked not only to the “good indications of economic recovery “but also to the commercial presence of the staff of Caja España-Duero in the street after” normalizing “the situation with its parent from March.

Thus, he highlighted that in the months of July, September or October the number of new operations with a sustained growth in each month over the previous one has “skyrocketed”. In any case, has clarified that more money is requested than long-term investment, so he reflected that “confidence still has not much pull”.

Ranera has insisted that Castilla y León is “the market” of Caja España-Duero, an entity that has 511 offices in the Community, so it has reflected that if it does not work “well” in the region they would be “wrong”.

He also stressed that Unicaja’s subsidiary is the entity with the largest share in offices and on the balance sheet and has pointed out that at present, conditions indicate that “either the investment grows or the profitability does not come out”.

Sources from Iberaval added that the sector that most benefits from these financial backing operations are commerce, with four out of ten operations, followed by industry, with 19 percent of services; hospitality, with 15 percent, and tourism with 12 percent. The rest is oriented to areas such as construction, the primary sector or transport.

When education is over and income is rising, most people between the ages of 30 and 50 have the opportunity to regularly put aside a larger amount from the current account. However, how you invest this money also depends on your personal goals.

First, one should ensure that one has sufficient insurance protection and loans and other debts paid off, recommends Niels Nauhauser of the consumer center Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart. “You should first pay back expensive loans before investing the money.” Nauhauser believes that how one specifically invests his money in order to accumulate wealth depends on the individual situation.

Do not put everything on one card

It is important in any case to minimize the risk, that is, not to put everything on a map. Nauhauser colleague Ralf Scherfling of the consumer center North Rhine-Westphalia in Dusseldorf also sees this as follows: “We advise consumers to diversify their assets into different product classes.”

Those who only rely on one product depend exclusively on its development, says the Düsseldorf consumer advocate: “If the investment is a risky product such as a closed-end fund, the assets built up can be completely lost.” On the other hand, anyone who pays everything into a risk-free investment such as a savings account , usually receives only a minimal return. “

Nauhauser recommends a mix of different types of investments such as banking products, securities and other property, plant and equipment such as real estate or commodities. How high the share of each asset class is depends on personal risk appetite. However, investors should always be careful to invest in the cheapest possible products: “For bank savings plans, for example, one should compare interest rates.” For investment funds, management fees should be low. “

Riester pension

Anyone who has not signed a contract for a Riester pension between the ages of 30 and 50 does not have much time to save a large sum. Here, unlike very young savers, a Riester pension insurance can be worthwhile, as Karin Baur, editor of the magazine “Finanztest” explains. In addition to the capital guarantee, which all Riester products offer, it also guarantees a guaranteed minimum return of 1.75 percent on the savings component, says Baur: “Even at the end, it is clear which pension savers will at least receive.”

Guaranteed interest on life insurance is low

This kind of security for people who do not need to be flexible also offers pension and endowment life insurance. This binds investors long-term, but can expect a guaranteed pension or capital payment. “Lucrative is not necessarily because the guaranteed interest is low,” says Baur.

Currently it is still at 1.25 percent. From 1 January 2017, the guaranteed interest rate is even only 0.9 percent – it drops significantly. Even with the additional bonus granted, the trend is currently going down, says Baur: “You should never tie up too much money in endowment policies.” Ralf Scherfling from the consumer advice center of North Rhine-Westphalia even advises fundamentally against capital-forming life insurance policies.

How much should I save?

How much you should put on the high ridge of his total disposable income, can not say flat-rate in the opinion of Scherfling: “Who, for example, a self-occupied property, for which is not saving in the foreground, but the repayment of the loan. ” Anyone starting retirement later has to save more to achieve the desired goal than someone who starts early.

However, there are rules of thumb for the amount of savings that were calculated on behalf of the Deutsche Bank-funded German Institute for Retirement Provision (DIA) in Berlin. Housing owners should save an average of eight and tenants nine percent of their gross income in order to fill future income gaps.

However, according to the DIA study, it also depends on the actual income level how much of it should be covered. For example, with a gross income of € 2,000, a savings rate of at least 5.5% for homeowners and 7% for tenants is recommended. On the other hand, earners with an income of more than € 4,000 should save at least nine percent as a homeowner and eleven percent a month as a tenant.

Argentina and Spain have agreed on a mechanism so that "before 2012 " the South American country "has canceled all" of the 960 million dollars owed to the European nation since 2001, informed official sources.

The understanding was reached by the Argentine President, Néstor Kirchner, and the head of the Spanish Government, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, in a meeting held within the framework of the XVI Ibero-American Summit of Montevideo.

"It has worked according to the mandate of the presidents and before December 1 will be an agreement that is compatible with the commitments of each country against international financial institutions," said an official Argentine spokesman.

An agreement will be made before December 1 that is compatible with the commitments of each country

He added that "it is the intention of both governments that in 2012 the total debt has been canceled" that Argentina contracted with Spain amidst the resounding economic and social crisis that erupted in the South American country at the end of 2001.

Trinidad Jiménez confirmed the extremes of the agreement principle, although he did not report which are the points that will still have to be negotiated before December 1.

The secretary of state also did not specify if the cancellation would take place in the form of remission or as payment: "what is relevant is the principle of agreement, the concrete contents will be known before December 1".

The King, "facilitator" in the conflict of the bins

The King has accepted Kirchner's request to act as a "facilitator" in the paper mill dispute between the governments of Buenos Aires and Montevideo.

This was announced at a press conference by the Spanish Secretaries of State of Communication, Fernando Moraleda, and Trinidad Jiménez.

Kirchner made this request to the monarch in the meeting that both held in the morning during the XVI Ibero-American Summit.

In his appearance before the press, Trinidad Jiménez explained that, although an official meeting has not been scheduled, "it is not ruled out that a meeting could take place" between the Spanish monarch and the Uruguayan president during the work sessions of the summit.

The Ibero-American fund to facilitate access to water

On the other hand, Zapatero proposed the creation of an Ibero-American fund to facilitate access to water for people who do not have it, proposed that the Ibero-American General Secretariat study the initiative and said that Spain is willing to commit to its financing.

For the President of the Government, this initiative, along with the Literacy Plan and the exchange of debt for education would be three "powerful instruments" to attack the main ills of the Ibero-American community.

International terrorism

Zapatero also defended that the Ibero-American Community has an active role in the search for answers to global challenges, among which he cited, in addition to access to water, international terrorism, climate change, the depletion of natural resources and the proliferation of massive destruction weapons.

Zapatero raised an exchange of university students similar to ERASMUS that exists in the EU

Regarding international terrorism, stressed that its origin is very complex and responds in part to a process of modernization frustrated or unfinished in many societies, the inability, he added, to find solutions to entrenched conflicts, to frustration at the scarce economic outlook and social, particularly among young people. "

The strengthening of the World Trade Organization and the requirement of compliance with the Kyoto Protocol were also defended by Zapatero.

In addition, he proposed to work in favor of alliances of companies in the European countries of the Ibero-American Community with small and medium-sized companies in Latin America, and proposed an exchange mechanism for university students similar to ERASMUS that exists within the EU.


Similarly, Zapatero made a closed defense of legality before the migration phenomenon and said that legality "is the beginning and the way" that must be followed.

Labor exploitation and illegal work must be combated with the full force of the law

In his speech at the second working session of the summit, dedicated to "Migrations and Development", Zapatero also stressed the importance of having comprehensive integration plans for those seeking their future in another country.

"We have to ensure that immigration occurs with all guarantees, and the best guarantee of defending the human rights of migrants is the commitment to legality, cooperation, and unequivocal action in the fight against trafficking in persons. people, "he said.

Also, he advocated fighting "with all the weight of the law" labor exploitation and illegal work.

Support to Central America in negotiations with the EU

In addition, Zapatero has committed the "specific support" of Spain to Central America in the negotiations of the treaty of association with the European Union and a help of 40 million euros to boost the regional integration of the area.

King Juan Carlos and Rodríguez Zapatero held a working breakfast with the presidents of El Salvador, Costa Rica and Honduras, and the vice presidents of the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Panama on the occasion of the XVI Ibero-American Summit.

At breakfast, all agreed to praise the great efforts of integration that have made the countries of the area, a process that, according to the president of El Salvador, Elías Antonio Saca, "moves quickly, much more than many believe."

This breakfast is one of the several meetings that the King and Zapatero are planning to celebrate during the three days of the Summit .

All the countries present at the summit condemned Friday on the first day of work the construction of the wall that will separate the US and Mexico.

Number 2 is where you have seed phase. Seed is where you are structuring and developing the business plan and the financials, and there is undoubtedly some capital expenditures taking place there.

Now to start with it may seem that that should proceed without saying. However, inside early days of internet marketing, plus online business opportunities, there was an adequate amount of “bait and switch” techniques. You might be looking for a right menu and wind up clicking on a website selling weight loss items. Marketers once were able to get apart with such actions. Yet no more. Nowadays, people are a lot savvier and they demand a higher standard00 excellence. And remember, one of your significant goals as an internet marketer would be to build up trust.

I actually used to be within the same line of work, and so I know it’s a mistake effortlessly made, especially if there’s a little bit of wayward paperwork floating around. However the real test of a carrier’s mettle isn’t whether they make a few mistakes or not, but what happens whenever they do.

There are several things that I look for within a prospect for my company. I look for people that are probably not selfish, that have unrealistic objectives (yes, I said impractical I’ll explain this within another article later, remain tuned), people who give back for their community, take action quickly, plus who take the time to invest in themselves toward their own personal development.
