Another: $30B Hedge Fund Opens An Office In Miami, With Plans To Grow

Yet another hedge fund is opening an office in Miami.

BlueCrest Capital Management, the third-biggest hedge fund in Europe, has opened an office here, according to Bloomberg.

Six portfolio managers are based in Miami initially, but the firm has plans to grow the office by hiring additional managers.

The office opening was prompted by the personal preference of those six managers, who wanted to live in Miami.

Bluecrest returned 54% in 2017 and nearly 50% in 2016. Co-founder Michael Platt’s net-worth increased to around $4 billion in 2018, up nearly $800 million from the prior year, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

Miami has been making a push to attract hedge funds by touting its status as a tax haven. This is the second major fund revealed to have opened an office this month alone.

Those six reach people will have to employ maids, gardeners, housekeepers, will have cars that will need maintenance, will buy food, furniture, their kids will attend schools, buy houses, etc….. six rich people will give work to other people that will not need to be on welfare… so what’s wrong with six more rich people?
Oh I forgot…some politicians ( dems) need rich people to pay taxes and poor people on welfare to keep voting for them …. ?

And most importantly, those six rich people will probably be registered Democrats, won’t live in neighborhoods infested with MAGA signs, and filled with poorly educated neighbors who are Republican and are wanted by the FBI for insurance and Medicaid Fraud.

Very wrong! But here’s something that’s very true: You voted for a fraud who told you that he would build a magnificent “wall” and that Mexico would pay for it. You of course, with your well educated self, believed the crook and voted your heart out. Are’nt you feeling just a bit stupid? By the way Dems are way smarter!

Hey koolaide drinker, anybody could’ve slid into the president position and pumped his chest about what he’s doing when in fact it was Obama and the Democrats who put the nation on this economic juggernaut that it has been experiencing for the last eight plus years. There was no significant increase in joblessness in the last six years Obama was is in office. If you are a republicon, your economic and employment outlook only only saw brighter days when Obama was in office, and if you don’t agree with that, then dispute that fact.

All that other claptrap you’re spewing is just an example of you republicons just latching onto bs talking points that this conman in the oval office feeds you. Face it you republicons, Trump is building a wall with your tax dollars because he can’t make Mexico pay for JAX!

Funny, I remember during one of GW Bush’s republicon debates, he said “there’s a lot of hispanics in my state and in this country, it’s time our party (republicons) broaden our base.”

And it was the Obama administration who created DACA because of the republicons threats to deport immigrant kids no matter what. And dummy, it was Ronnie Raygun who granted AMNESTY to millions of illegal Mexican aliens when he was the president. So I guess it’s alright if a republicon president grant amnesty to get more votes, right?

There was a 50/50 chance that a republicon would get elected president and more than a 50 percent chance that he would get rid of DACA. Anyway, the law was put in place to protect children of illegal immigrants who, since being brought to this country, may meet certain guidelines and “they are also eligible for work authorization.” “Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.”

Deferred action is for a period of two years, and is subject to renewal.

If it was up to Trump, these kids would be sitting in one of his detention centers.

Wtf are you talking about? Probably about 96% of political talk radio is rightwing. Trump got more free media exposure during his campaign for president than any of the other candidates, probably all of them combined. Trump has fired more of his own appointees in his first year in office and he would love to get rid of Muller. It’s gotten to the point where the white house looks like a revolving door. Trump put people in place that knows nothing about HUD, nothing when it comes to the dept of EDUCATION, and an EPA administrator who wanted to eliminate the EPA before Trump was elected.

Trump didn’t have to do anything.

All Trump had to do was appeal to his racist supporters and claim he did things that he had no right to and Boom!.. he was elected president.
