Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's finances, Washington Post reports

jim price aero financial

Special counsel Robert Mueller is scrutinizing White House adviser Jared Kushner's "finances and business dealings" as part of the ongoing probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, The Washington Post reported Thursday, citing unnamed officials familiar with the matter.

The financial dealings of other people tied to President Trump have also been examined by the FBI and federal prosecutors, the Post reported. Among them are former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and former adviser Carter Page.

The lawyer for Kushner, the president's son-in-law and close adviser, said there was nothing surprising about the Post's report.
"We do not know what this report refers to," attorney Jamie Gorelick said in a statement. "It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russia.  Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters.  He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry."

USA TODAY previously reported that the FBI was investigating Kushner for his contact with Russian officials, but there was no word at that time that his financial dealings were part of the probe.

Among those contacts was a meeting in December 2016 between Kushner, Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Russian banker Sergey Gorkov.

Gorkov is the chairman of Combativeness, which the Obama administration hit with sanctions in 2014 in response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its support of separatists in Ukraine.

Rockford Finance Task Force meets

jim price aero financial

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- With a $6.5 million dollar deficit for 2018, the Rockford Finance Task Force is meeting for the first time to try to solve what many call a budget crisis.

By the end of 2017, the city expects to be right on budget. However, getting to that point has required some adjustments. Although the city is on track on the expense side of the budget, they are about 3% under previous projections for revenue.

In 2009, a financial was created to solve a nearly $9 million budget deficit the city was facing. At today's meeting, the new finance task force reviewed the actions taken by the previous committee and their effectiveness.

The city's financial department also showed what will happen if the city continues doing the same thing they're doing now. Those projections show the gap between revenue and expenses continuing to grow.

"What I hope we can accomplish is by bringing all matters that we have to the table from all the difference perspectives - whether it be from the administration, whether it be from the Union, whether it be from the public - so then we can all hear each other's sides and try to come to a consensus on what's gonna work," says Rockford Water Plant Operator, Gary Cacciapaglia.

The previous committee only included members from management, and no city workers. Some members of the current task force believe that exclusion prohibited the task force from producing the most effective results possible.

The task force has yet to make a recommendation. Any recommendations they do make will be sent to City Council for approval.

Finance Ireland to lend over €100m for commercial property deals

jim price san diego

Finance Ireland, the country’s biggest non-bank lender, expects to provide more than €100 million in loans this year to finance commercial property transactions here.

The privately-owned company, led by former Permanent TSB chief executive Billy Kane, has revealed that it has financed more than 40 transactions since it entered the market in 2016, involving a combined €65 million in loans.

Ken Murnaghan, Finance Ireland’s managing director of commercial mortgages, told The Irish Times that its current run rate for lending was €10 million a month. “We’ve had a great first quarter of the year, and running at €10 million a month is a nice place to be.”

Mr Murnaghan said the Irish company had focused on lending to domestic borrowers at between €1 million and €5 million per transaction. This has been used to fund deals on income-producing assets with SME-sized tenants. This typically involves a small block of apartments, offices, retail or factories.

“It’s a targeted segment of the market. In this space we see that we’ve done more business than anyone else. We have our own money and our own balance sheet, and we make all of our decisions from this building.”
Urban areas

He said 85 per cent of the lending was used to support projects in urban areas (Greater Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick) and the balance in provincial centres.

Some 30 per cent was in both the residential buy-to-let space and retail, 25 per cent in office and other commercial, and 15 per cent in industrial.

Finance Ireland’s typical loan-to-value ratio is 75 per cent, with interest rates ranging from 6.5 to 8.5 per cent. The company is a regulated business, allowing it to lend to individuals as well as companies.

Mr Murnaghan launched Finance Ireland’s commercial mortgage division last year having previously held senior roles with both Ulster Bank and AIB. The company employs 10 staff in this area.

Jim price aero financial - 7 features that hurt your home's value

James Price Aero Financial

If you own property, chances are you're constantly investing in new renovations to keep your home spiffy and fresh.

While you're most likely choosing restorations based on your personal preferences and tastes, you should always keep resale value in mind. You never know when your home is going to hit the market, and if you're hoping to sell your digs down the road, the money and effort you pour in now is going to come back around come bid time.

Unfortunately, some projects and renovations that you think are boosting curb appeal can actually trash your home's value.

Check out the gallery for 7 features that can cause property value to plummet:

For example, quirky, trendy features, like ornate lighting fixtures or black and white tiles, may depreciate in value over time and seem outdated in a few years.

And even though you love the color orange, an orange-painted bedroom will likely not sell as well as a cleaner, neutral wall would. A study by Zillow found homes with terracotta-colored living rooms sold for an average of $793 less than other homes. Instead, compromise with orange bedding, and stick to a more soothing hue on the walls, like cream or light blue.

Another tip? High-end gadgets and electronics can scare off potential buyers. Skip the over-the-top whirlpool tub, and opt for a simple stall with a state-of-the-art shower head. Your wallet will thank you down the road!
