Behind all the denials of applications at Solo Capital, there is a honest truth to why so many people are not given a position at the firm. Sanjay Shah holds the lead position of the CEO at Solo Capital, which means that he has a majority of the say on who is to work within his walls. Whoever acquires a position as the CEO or in the human resource department, they must learn to put empathy behind them to ensure that their company only hires the best employees to work there. This means turning down single mothers and fathers just trying to provide for their family’s and even college students who are seeking their first jobs. Although the decision making process is rather difficult at first, it becomes easier after you have denied a majority of the applications coming into your office. If Sanjay was to show empathy in his position, he could end up losing money due to the lack of knowledge within his employees. To businessmen, this is a risk that is not worth taking.
What Solo Capital looks for in an employee is someone who acquires all the correct educational credentials and most importantly, someone who has the first hand experience to know what they are doing inside of a firm. Even though a persons educational background will teach them all of the rules and guidelines about working in a firm, it does not teach them how a business like Solo Capital is run from the inside. That is why training is provided to all the new employees at Solo Capital. Sanjay, as well as other employees at the firm, are the one’s who will have a sit down with the new employees and discuss the schedule of Solo Capital and show them the ins and outs of the position they just took on. Every firm is different with the way things are run, so having this time to train an employee to know what they are doing at every moment, is extremely crucial to the success of any firm.
Sanjay just so happens to be one of the most knowledgeable businessmen in today’s society, so for him, teaching an employee is something that comes natural. Anyone that is learning from Sanjay is extremely lucky to be able to jot down his tips on working at an investment firm. Sanjay also runs an organization called Autism Rocks outside of Solo Capital according to globalcitizen which adds on to his list of exceptional credentials. Because of Sanjay’s years of experience within this business, he offers his time to teach college students and other businessmen and women his personal tips on running an investment firm as well as financing and investment advice. If there is anybody in this world who can do a complete walk through on investing funds, it is Sanjay Shah.
Brad Reifler has been a successful entrepreneur since shortly after he graduated from Bowdoin College in 1981. He started his first firm, Reifler Trading Corporation in 1982. He founded Reifler Capital Management ten years later. Brad grew these companies until they were acquired by Refco Inc. in 2000.

He has expanded Forefront’s operations to include Forefront Income Trust and Forefront Advisory, LLC. He serves on the boards of ITG Market Research Inc., ROOT Exchange and ITG Investment Research Inc.
Brad’s success is pretty evident if you look at his Bloomberg profile, and in global derivatives and other financial markets has shown him the complexity and volatility of investing. His experience in financial markets has also taught him that many responsible investors are at a disadvantage if they cannot achieve accredited investor status. He has known people who diligently invested in college funds for their children, but who lost money even though such funds were supposed to be among the safest investments available. Brad’s father-in-law had sound investment strategies after selling his business and retiring, but was unable to pursue these strategies because he did not achieve accredited investor status.
Brad Reifler now seeks to help investors who may be financially sophisticated but lack accredited investor status. He sees the need for his experience and financial acumen to serve the other 99%.
The wave of the future is accessible and optimized insurance coverage via the power of the Internet and the freedom of industry deregulation. This is made abundantly clear in the liberty loving Bay State as the still dominant agent-based insuring methodology is crumbling against the waves of price and policy savvy web surfers. Though still boasting a powerful force of 1,600 independent insurance agencies as reported by the Boston Globe, Internet driven insurance companies such as Geico Insurance and Progressive Corp. are making strong headway into this new market of open access.
This has obviously created something of a rift between independent agents and a consumers desire for fair pricing while having access to expert advice – a zero sum game with no winners at the end of it.
Enter the keen solutions of Plymouth Rock Assurance‘s new online tool. Instead of forcing consumers to rely on their own research as they browse the plethora of insurance options available to them via this new inroad of bringing the independent agents along with the future of the Internet for the advantage of all. Agents signed up with Plymouth Rock Assurance can get notified when a customer is browsing options and has questions, as well as be notified of when clients have selected a package so that they have the opportunity to assess what the customer has chosen and see if they can find a better plan for them via deductibles or even alterations to homeowner policy!
Plymouth Rock Assurance was founded by still-CEO James M. Stone, who is also a chief executive of the holding company, Plymouth Rock Company. A Democratic Harvard graduate with a Ph.D. in Economics, it is no surprise that Mr. Stone has found a way to combine the years of experience that independent agents offer with the decentralized advantage of the Internet. As a resident of Boston along with his family, what he does he does for the safety and advantage of all Massachusites.
