London Wealth Manager Takes Out $1B Profit From $600M BTC Purchase

Published

on

  • Asset manager Ruffer has profited by greater than $1 billion BTC  in profit.
  • The major holders of $5.2 billion BTC are MicroStrategy, Tesla, and Square.

Asset manager Ruffer generated more than $1 billion in profits from a $600 million Bitcoin (BTC) investment made in November 2020.

Hamish Baillie, financial director of the London-based asset management agency, revealed in an interview with The Times – that Ruffer closed his Bitcoin position in April with a profit of more than $1.1 billion:

“We made some profits for our customers in December and early January when the price doubled. We actually managed the position and by the time we sold the last tranche in April, the total profit was a little over $1.1 billion.”

Baillie claimed that Ruffer was one of the first fund managers to purchase BTC as the company’s short-term funds. At the time of financing, the value of Bitcoin exceeded $15,000, and he has been checking so much. In 2017, it reached a high of nearly $20,000.

The funding director attributed Bitcoin’s parabolic surge at the end of 2020 to the US. For preventing the pandemic and economic stimulus payments. He mentioned that part of the reason the company provided its assets was that young traders did not spend much time buying and selling. Now sell cryptocurrency. The conclusion is coming to an end.

The agency has shifted profits from BTC transactions to other “protective” assets, similar to government bonds related to inflation. However, Baillie believes that large financial institutions as well as Ruffer and Goldman Sachs will continue to buy bitcoin, stating that another purchase is “certainly not off the menu.”

Ruffer is not the only major financial institution involved in cryptocurrency. With knowledge from Bitcointreasuries.org shows that currently, 36 listed companies have BTC on their stability charts.

Top Bitcoin holders

Currently, only 6% or 16% of listed companies investing in Bitcoin are below the status of Nexon, Meitu, and Seetee. The total BTC value of the three major holders MicroStrategy, Tesla, and Square is $5.2 billion.

Published

Bank of Baroda offers flexibility to staff

Published

on

Bank of Baroda (BOB) is preparing to offer its staff immense flexibility with the ‘work from anywhere’ and ‘hybrid’ work models being implemented. The objective is to provide better work-life balance and also improve productivity in the longer term.

The Bank is considering implementing an operating model which will involve remote working options for specific roles and hybrid working for others. The Bank has come to realise the need to digitally deliver banking services, which has led to its digitising a significant portion of its operations and services to better serve its customers.

It is rapidly moving towards paperless functioning. With relevant applications in place, mobile banking has become the norm for most customers. The Bank is confident that except for a couple of services which can be delivered well via the physical branches, the customers are increasingly taking to dealing and transacting via their phones. In its attempt to ready the Bank for the future, BoB will ensure an ideal mix of both physical and digital presence. In line with this goal, BoB has launched the ‘BOB NOWW’ (New Operating model and Ways of Working) initiative under which the branch network will be rightsized and customer touch points will be increased through digital formats.

The Bank is working to serve customers better with tailored offerings that are customer centric. The initiatives being considered to achieve this goal will also result in cost optimisation and facilitate growth by creating more value for all stakeholders. In addition, its ‘mobile first’ initiative focusses on making the mobile app the main interface with the customers.

Saraf Furniture to hire 250 from LGBTQ+ community

Published

on

Saraf Furniture is taking its Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) agenda quite seriously. The online furniture company is all set to take on 250 people from the LGBTQ+ community in FY 2021-22. An expert committee is being put together to carry out this plan smoothly.

The Company that sells solid wood furniture online, will hire members of the LGBTQ community for its human resources, interior designing, website development, AutoCad, digital marketing, after-sales support, chat support, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) experts, AutoCAD expert, and supply chain management teams.

That is not all. The Company has been sensitising and training the existing workforce, and spreading awareness about lifestyle diversity in preparation to onboard members of the LGBTQ community.

Unisex washrooms are being constructed and a special welfare committee is being constituted to focus on protecting the rights of the Community.

The move, probably the first of its kind in India Inc. is the Company’s way of showing its commitment towards ensuring equality at the workplace in every sense of the word.

Raghunandan Saraf, founder & CEO, Saraf Furniture, hopes that more organisations will follow suit and hire from the LGBTQ community. He feels that unless companies actually do something concrete in this direction, the purpose of discussions on equality for the community and safeguarding their rights is defeated. While there are innumerable social-media campaigns going on for the community, little is being done by the corporate world on ground in terms of actively hiring from the community in large numbers.
