This is the second in a three-part series looking at the alleged failure of advisers and consultants to identify what a forensic audit has said should have been obvious red flags in the Harrisburg incinerator deal that has left the capital city on the brink of bankruptcy.This installment examines how the debt got approved and how those involved now deny ultimate responsibility.You have, no doubt, heard about Self-Liquidating (Arbitrage) Loans for years.You may have tried to get one, or you be trying to get one now.After promising initial results on those tiny amounts, in the Fall of 2012 I began making substantial investments in Lending Club notes via a Roth IRA as this investment not only has high expected returns, but also is maximally tax-inefficient.
Eckert Seamans, which was involved throughout, collected more than million off the project.
The difference between the fair value of a bank’s assets and the book value of its outstanding liabilities represents the bank’s net worth.
A bank lacking positive net worth is said to be “insolvent,” and it generally cannot remain open unless it is kept afloat by means of central bank support.
The hassle factor was not insignificant, but I eventually found ways to automate it.
As a financial blogger, I was given free access first to the services of Interest Radar and then to the services of NSR Invest.
According to the promoters, to get a Self-Liquidating (Arbitrage) Loan, all you need to do is: collateral using some of the moneyyou borrowed.
