RACO Investment, a leading authority in the financial industry, has demonstrated its expertise in taming market chaos and mastering financial planning amidst volatility. With a wealth of experience and strategic insights, RACO Investment unveils four key signs that empower investors to pivot effectively during market turbulence.

In the ever-evolving world of finance, market volatility is an inherent factor that can lead to uncertainty and challenge even the most seasoned investors. However, RACO Investment has proven its ability to navigate market chaos and capitalize on opportunities during turbulent times. With their strategic approach to financial planning, RACO Investment empowers investors to survive and thrive amidst market volatility.

RACO Investment has identified four key signs that serve as powerful indicators for investors to pivot and adjust their investment strategies effectively:

1. Significant Market Fluctuations: Rapid and significant swings in the market, accompanied by heightened volatility, can be a clear sign for investors to evaluate their positions and consider adjustments. Analyzing trends, historical data, and market indicators can help identify whether the fluctuations are temporary or indicative of a more significant market shift.

2. Changing Macroeconomic Factors: Shifts in macroeconomic factors, such as interest rates, inflation, employment rates, and geopolitical events, can significantly impact the market. Monitoring these factors and understanding their potential consequences on different asset classes enables investors to anticipate market movements and make informed decisions.

3. Industry and Sector Trends: Industries and sectors often experience cycles of growth and decline. Monitoring industry-specific trends and assessing the performance of different sectors can help investors identify emerging opportunities and potential risks. Adjusting portfolios to align with the evolving landscape allows investors to capitalize on industries poised for growth and mitigate exposure to underperforming areas.

4. Fundamental Analysis and Financial Metrics: Conducting a thorough fundamental analysis of individual stocks or investment assets is crucial during market volatility. Assessing key financial metrics, such as earnings, revenue growth, debt levels, and cash flow, provides insights into investments underlying financial health and stability. Identifying significant changes in these metrics can serve as a signal to pivot or reallocate assets accordingly.

Market volatility can present unique opportunities for investors who know how to navigate uncertainty, said Randall Castillo Ortega at RACO Investment. By mastering financial planning and recognizing these key signs, investors can position themselves to adapt and make informed decisions that drive their investment success.

RACO Investments strategic approach to financial planning during market chaos encompasses the following elements:

1. Diversification: Building a well-diversified portfolio across different asset classes, industries, and regions helps to mitigate risk and minimize exposure to specific market fluctuations. Diversification allows investors to take advantage of potential opportunities while spreading risk.

2. Active Monitoring and Analysis: Regularly monitoring market conditions, economic indicators, and investment performance is essential for staying informed and identifying potential signs for pivoting. Advanced analytical tools and data-driven insights can help investors make proactive decisions based on accurate and timely information.

3. Flexibility and Agility: Maintaining a flexible investment strategy that can adapt to changing market conditions is crucial. Having predefined plans for different market scenarios and being open to adjusting investment allocations or exploring new opportunities allows investors to pivot quickly and take advantage of market shifts.

4. Risk Management: Implementing risk management strategies, such as setting stop-loss orders, trailing stops, or hedging techniques, can help protect investments during volatile periods. Risk tolerance and appropriate risk management measures are critical to successful financial planning.

Market volatility is not something to be feared, but rather an opportunity to capitalize on, added Randall Castillo Ortega. At RACO Investment, we empower investors to master financial planning and make strategic decisions that drive long-term success in ever-changing markets.

With its track record of taming market chaos and its commitment to mastering financial planning, RACO Investment continues to lead the way in helping investors navigate through turbulent times and achieve their financial goals.

Legend Holdings Corporation (stock code: 3396.HK) announced its audited annual results for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the “Reporting Period”) on March 31, 2023. During the Reporting Period, Legend Holdings achieved revenue of RMB483.7 billion and net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company of RMB1.167 billion.

In 2022, uncertainties in the international situation continued to increase, including rising global inflation and significant volatility in international financial markets and commodity markets, which also had a significant impact on the Company’s performance. The industrial incubations and investments segment successfully promoted the listing of over 60 enterprises in the last three years, among the best in the industry. However, as these investments were measured at fair value, the segment’s performance was affected by the volatility of the capital market; in addition, Joyvio Group made a provision for goodwill and asset impairment in 2022 year due to factors such as rising operating costs caused by the increase in raw material prices and the interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Facing the challenges, the company carefully studied the layout and solidly promoted its strategy to strengthen its competitive ability while stabilizing its fundamentals and ensuring sustainable profitability.

Mr. Li Peng, Executive Director and CEO of Legend Holdings, said that during the reporting period, the company’s performance recorded a considerable decrease, but the company insisted on the goal of achieving high-quality development, with “industrial operation and technological innovation” as the core of its long-term development strategy. The company’s fundamentals are sound, and certain enterprises in the industrial operations and incubations & investments sectors have good long-term growth potential. The main task now is to further strengthen the existing business foundation and enhance industrial competitiveness, while actively adjusting the business portfolio and optimizing the business model to improve shareholders’ returns. During the reporting period, the industrial operations segment overcame various unfavorable factors and continued to promote management improvement and operation enhancement; the industrial incubations and investments segment focused on national key fields, supporting independent innovation and industrial chain upgrades, promoting the development of specialized and innovative enterprises, and linking economic chains in line with the dual circulation strategy.

The investment in R&D of Levima Advanced Materials increased by 21% year-on-year, and applied for 53 patents and obtained 58 granted patents during the reporting period. It focused on investment in the layout of high-end new materials, and achieved a breakthrough in the domestic production of electronic-grade hydrogen chloride and chlorine products after taking the lead in achieving the local substitution of photovoltaic film materials. The “20,000 tons/year UHMWPE (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene) project” is expected to be put into operation in mid-2023, with the aim of reducing the UHMWPE import over-dependence. Fullhan Microelectronics’ R&D investment increased by 20% year-on-year, mainly in chip R&D field, with R&D staff comprising 85% of its workforce.

In 2022, its manufacturing bases in Tianjin and Shenzhen commenced operations, and its Hefei base was recognized as a “lighthouse” factory by the World Economic Forum.

RACO Investment founder Randall Castillo Ortega provides personnel management tips for startups

Financial and business expert Randall Castillo Ortega explains the benefits of proper personnel management to get a startup off the ground.

San Jos, Costa Rica – WEBWIRE

As an organization, you must have a clear understanding of your employees as well as their skills, experience, information, ideas, and creative thinking. If you want them to be successful, an organization should be able to appreciate their skills, experience, information, ideas and creative thinking. Randall Castillo Ortega, an entrepreneur and the founder of RACO Investment, discusses the five main components of this plan.

In order to be a good manager of human capital, it is important to create processes for bringing out the best talent available to the organization, creating work plans for employees, leading and training representatives, convincing employees to deliver the best work possible, and creating a plan that is appropriate for the individual employee. When it comes to a team, it is important to understand what is going on right now and what would be ideal if everything was perfect.

A financial goal can be set for employees based on a personal financial goal, which will allow them to develop their general skills, which makes them more interested in positions close to the association in the future. The goal of human capital is to retain dedicated and dedicated agents, to work hard at work, to develop onboarding programs for new contracts, and to get the best deals in the pool, according to Puig.

Furthermore, it is important for the organization to clarify its direction. This part involves identifying the back-and-forth connections between management and the organization. In order to accomplish short and clear goals, it is essential to understand top management, customers, partners desires and needs, team vision, budget requirements, and delegation requirements.

Organizations need to collect information from employees, customers, and partners in order to learn about their wants and needs in order to accomplish this. As a result of talking about these issues, an organization will be able to define its vision and its team in a more productive manner.

As part of a successful review, current reps will be asked to discuss where they see themselves in the organization in two years. A team can then identify any weaknesses or gaps in the organization through this type of analysis.

An organization or process is only effective when it is properly managed. This includes improvements in key monitoring and reporting processes, such as planning for disappointments and processing them more efficiently. Additionally, he suggests that the team consider the evasive aspects of the arrangement and how the equation can be changed, if they are an asset. Members will be unable to determine whether the key management plan is working if there is no accountability system in place, Castillo explains.

An effective human capital management strategy is also the combination of the methods and functions necessary for the successful implementation of this system. Developing a foolproof plan for its implementation is also a requirement.

A successful human capital management strategy will include the allocation of assets, budgeting, and setting deadlines or allocating time. Clarity is of utmost importance when it comes to human capital management strategies. A clear usage plan outlines the process and goals clearly.

The purpose of human resources professionals is to develop long-term strategies to ensure that their employees are satisfied with their work. Once an organization has identified its goals and objectives, it will be able to make arrangements and procedures to achieve them. Employees who are successful are able to perform at their best, so they can increase their chances of winning. Organizations can assign employees based on their territorial merits, abilities, teaching abilities, and skills.

In order to understand the needs of their employees in order to monitor their developments within the organization, directors must have regular conversations with their employees. As part of human capital planning, organizations are encouraged to align human capital strategies, activities, and processes to ensure employee productivity and the achievement of the companys goals and objectives, as well as improve employee productivity.

Concludes Castillo, HR professionals are able to employ the right people, prepare them in the best way possible, treat them as agents, examine their abilities when needed, and protect them as workers by using a human capital management system.

Investment is Valued and Rewarded in Nigeria says NITDA DG Kashifu Inuwa

The Director General, NITDA (National Information Technology Development Agency), Kashifu Inuwa has called on international investors to invest in the Nigerian tech ecosystem because doing so is valued and comes with many rewards. Speaking on the “Evolution of the Nigerian Tech Ecosystem” to the Ludwig von Bayern Startup Lions, Inuwa said there are four comparative advantages you won’t find anywhere but in Nigeria.
Firstly, Inuwa suggested that Nigeria’s large population and its emerging economic status positioned as a suitable investment destination in Africa. “Nigeria alone has 15% of the population and the GDP, so investing in Nigeria is like investing in Africa. Moreover, it is emerging because if you look at the tech-ecosystem, Nigeria attracts 30% of African FDI. Last year alone, the country attracted more than USD 2 billion.”

Secondly, Inuwa suggested that the level of support the government now gives to the tech ecosystem is unparalleled in the history of the country. He said the government has been supporting innovation and startup. There are many interventions in terms of policies, laws and infrastructure to help businesses to grow.

“In 2019, the President expanded the mandates of our ministry to cover digital economy. Before, it was just ministry of Communications but realizing that communication is not an end, but a means to an end, while the end is how we can use technology for economic prosperity.”

He recalled the Nigerian Startup Act, the Executive Order on the Ease of Doing Business, which includes incentives like visa on arrival and business incorporation under 24 hours, each aimed at transforming the economy.

“Thirdly, we have youthful and talented population which you won’t find elsewhere in the world. While the developed countries are suffering from aging population, we have one of the youngest populations in the world,” he observed.

“Finally, any investment has high potential for social and economic impacts, and helps the country solve its many challenges. We have challenges that require innovative solutions; we have challenges around healthcare, financial inclusion, education, transportation, and logistics. And you all know: IT or technology can provide faster solutions for us to solve all these problems.

“So, come to Nigeria and invest. You will easily feel our comparative advantages,” concluded Inuwa.

While urging investors to look the way of Nigeria, Inuwa invited them to grace the Africa Tech Conference that comes up in July 2023.
