     Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega is the current vice president of Grupo Televisa,S.A. He is one of those who transformed Televisa from a company that is suffering from mismanagement to one of Mexico’s most successful media company. One of the reasons on how Televisa managed to get back on track was the $1.2 billion deal that it signed with Univision. This deal was made possible by the efforts of Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega, and is regarded as the turning point of the company. However, it wasn’t easy for the company to have this deal signed, as there was some disagreement along the way which has to be addressed. After so many months of negotiating, the two companies – Televisa and Univision – decided to settle on a deal.

This landmark $1.2 billion deal signed in 2010 managed to open up new opportunities, as Televisa was finally allowed to broadcast its programs through the homes of Hispanics in the United States. It also led to an ownership share with Univision and three seats for board of directors for Televisa. Univision had suffered with debt and had several layoffs, and when they were nearing bankruptcy, the company decided to open up their company for those who wanted to buy a part of it. That is when Televisa came into the scene and initially purchased a part of the company. The deal made years ago turned out positively for both sides. More profit was made for Televisa, and it revitalized Univision’s presence among the Hispanic people of the United States.

Today, Televisa managed to own up to 49% of Univision, and they are close to becoming the majority shareholder of the company. Their programs are known to make huge ratings across every household, and the receptions with their programs are positive. It should also be noted that Univision was once founded by the grandfather of Televisa’s current chief executive officer, Emilio Azcarraga Jean, but it was taken away from his family’s control as the United States tighten their rules on foreign owned corporations. All of this progresses and developments with Televisa would not be possible without the help of Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega.

Bruce R. Bent II thinks everyone with disposable income should invest in a money market fund. Why? Because wide risk diversification minimizes the risk of loss, and this is the type of investment everyone needs.

Money market funds are investment funds that invest almost exclusively in short-term investments, and are considered safe and valuable due to their short duration. A money market fund invests the money paid into securities with a maturity of up to 12 months. Due to the wide spread of risk, the chances of losing money from money market funds is lower. Due to the short remaining term of the debt securities included in the fund’s assets, money market funds virtually do not have any price risks. Their return is almost exclusively influenced by the level of the short-term interest rate. If this remains constant, its value increases practically continuously, but with a very low rate of increase.

This is one of the reasons Bruce Bent II suggest individuals invest in money market funds. This type of investment is particularly suitable if investing funds that are to be available at short notice. Money market funds are an interesting variant for investing indirectly in the money market. The advantages: The credit is available daily and the risks are manageable.

How Do You Minimize Loss?

Open-ended funds with short maturities are invested in several companies. This is used to control the risk of loss because it is unlikely that all companies involved in a fund will experience losses at the same time. Of course, with any investment, there are always chances for loss, however, money market funds minimize those chances.

Bruce Bent II, of Double Rock Corporation, specializes in research-based methods that rapidly analyze cost management to improve the margin, and produce optimal outcomes. Bent has more than three decades of experience, particularly in operations & risk management, cost/benefit analysis, and needs assessment, which has enabled him to seize vast opportunities.
