Since the foundation of Fortress Investment Group in 1998, Randal Nardone has been able to steer the operations of the company up to the point where the company has experienced maximum success. The organization has been able to become the largest alternative asset investment company in the world in terms of the asset base and the number of customers who associate with the company. However, recent reports indicate that the company will be acquired by a Japanese Investor, Soft Bank.
A significant number of people did not understand why the organization accepted the bid from the foreign investor given that the entity was not experiencing any financial distress and did not need financial support. However, there are various benefits that could have triggered the acceptance of the bid by Randal Nardone and other executive members of the board of the Fortress Investment Group.
One of the main reasons as to why Randal Nardone and other members of the Fortress Investment Group accepted the bid is that the organization did not change its board of directors. The regulatory authority of United States highlighted that the management of the organization had to be maintained for the deal to go through. This means that, despite the acquisition process being complete, the company is still under the control and management of Randal Nardone, Wes Edens, and Peter Briger.
The company received a good offer that any other organization willing to expand its operations could not have resisted. Additionally, the money provided by the Japanese investor was under the control of the management of the company such that it had to decide what to do with the money. Given that the main executive members and founders of the organization owned some shares in the company, there was no need of leaving the company.
Lastly, Randal Nardone could have accepted the bid to sell his company due to the probability and the opportunity of expanding the firm to Asia. The Japanese investor is supposed to create an opportunity where the company will easily move its operations to the Asian region where there are few number of asset management entities.
Sujit Choudhry says it is not the location of the company that concerns the EU regulation. It is all about the EU consumer. Any business that works with an EU consumer has to protect them under the GDPR. This directly affects US companies with an EU target market. Under the GDPR any outside company doing business with an EU resident is considered a controller. That is why they must follow the GDPR regulations, get info on (Works.bepress.com).
Any Punishment For Violation?
Sujit Choudhry says the GDPR regulations are strict. Global businesses that do not follow the guidelines could face astronomical monetary penalties. A good example is for businesses that fail to report data breaches like loss of personal data or unauthorized access within 72 hours of becoming aware could be fined 10 million euros or 2 percent of global income. The bigger the amount will be charged. Any unlawful transfers of data from EU residents can get fined 20 million euros or 4 percent. The larger amount will be charged. With the GDPR, individual protection includes the ability for consumers to sue for their own rights. Consumers now have more control over their data than they’ve ever had. Sujit Choudhry says the point is to protect the data so nothing can be done with it without consumer consent. The personal data includes any ID numbers, location info, online ID, genetic data and more. Consent can also be withdrawn at any point, which falls under the EU “right to be forgotten” idea, more details on (Crunchbase.com).
Sujit Choudhry further explains the “right to be forgotten” idea. He says the GDPR did not come up with that. The GDPR is just an expansion of the regulations that were placed in 1995. In those previous regulations “right to be forgotten” was listed, know more updates on iconnectblog.com. Google Spain went on to further define this concept and the GDPR did as well. It has existed for over 20 years. Now the law explains when and how the concept can be used. It also explains the range of data protection and any limitations. The right to be erased now means not absolute and not unrestricted. Google Spain took part in this by adjusting how search engines provide links, see http://www.law.nyu.edu/news/choudhry_award.

Guilherme Paulus is a renowned Entrepreneur in South America. He was 24 years old when he founded CVC, which is currently the largest tour operator in Brazil. CVC is currently considered as a premium tour operator by all the countries in South America, the Caribbean, and the United States.
In 1972, Guilherme Paulus co-founded the company along with the then famous Brazilian politician Carlos Vincente Cerchiari who left the company soon in 1976. Guilherme exhibited amazing entrepreneurial skills at such a tender age and today he owns a chain of hotels and an airliner.
In 2013, the tour operator went from being a private company for decades directly to the stock market exchange and made its shares available for purchase. Today CVC generates a staggering revenue of $5.2 billion every year. There are 400 CVC travel agency stores spread throughout the shopping malls of the country. Currently, they have more than 30,000 business partners all over the globe. Guilherme Paulus wanted to do more for the citizens of the company and in 2005 founded the renowned GJP Resorts and Hotels. Currently, it has 19 hotels under its management and has plans to build more near airports for the convenience of the tourists and the citizens.

There are fantastic options for the growth of real industries. The Brazilian government is striving for major reforms which are destined to be of great benefit to the real estate department. Real estate has been in bad shape for the past few decades. There has been limited credit without investment. There has been high sales cancellation that afflicted the whole industry and the country’s economy at large.
As a result, some of the top real estate companies had to go for the harsh decisions and spread their services further. Among these companies was JHSF which started an exploration of new enterpris3s in the retail business. This decision was lucrative and played a significant role in saving the real estate industry. JHSF became a star after they built the first shopping complex. Many companies began to explore the new establishment. It was after this that the real estate industry in the nation started growing massively and created several chances for the other companies to explore.
This company is run by Jose Auriemo Neto. He is the Chief Executive Officer as well as the chairman of this company.

Through keeping his employee’s crew happy and contented, Jose Auremo Neto makes sure that he is committed towards their cause and allows them to prosper.
Jose Auremo Neto has a vast experience in the industry, and he is not afraid to surpass the book. He is always on the move to try something new in the industry. From the inspiration of the real estate industries of the developed states, he has gone a step further and established various partnerships with the other international brands and brought them to Brazil. This was a great achievement as many of these companies never wanted to work with the slow-moving economy like that of Brazil. However, Jose Auremo Neto was able to revert this. All credit goes to him. Brazil has now highly boomed in the economy and business sector.
