To anyone it may concern,
Information has always been and remains a material item – its value depends on the quality and on the demand for it. With the development of the Internet, this product has become more available but not of higher quality. About 2% of all the material we can find on the Internet is information; the rest of it is information noise.
One particular type of information which has formed the basis for the development of whole mini-industries is information about people, both famous and ordinary ones. We are all driven by a sense of our own significance, we work, find self-fulfillment, for example, by writing articles which are noticed by other people, rejoice or suffer disappointment when we are mentioned somewhere. As a result of such information a person develops an “aura” on the Internet.
Companies have emerged which offer “aura” adjustment for 3,000-15,000 dollars a year. They make your aura cleaner by posting positive articles and whole series of articles about the customer, working with search engines, driving negative information, if any exists, into the background. This is to say that how you are perceived on the Internet is, chiefly, defined by your wallet.
I am not a public figure, I am not striving for empty fame, I do not resort to services of aura adjustment on the Internet, but nevertheless, I have healthy ambitions, life plans, and self-respect. Some time ago I found out that despite my humble personality, somebody had tried to slander me. Everything written below is not an attempt to justify myself, but rather a simple analytical explanation of how one can try to create a negative story about a person by making a mountain out of a molehill. I am an analyst, not a journalist, and so my statement will not be distinct in emotionality when perceived.
I started working in the investment industry in the USA in 2008. Having received series 65, 63, 7 and 24 licenses, I started work in an investment adviser and American broker-dealers. We developed six strategies on the basis of which small funds of the same name were created (Global, Income, Dividend, Latin America, Asia and Telecom). For the whole period of work no client of adviser or the fund lost money (this information is contained in adviser’s files which have twice been reviewed by the state regulator specified below). I cannot say that we earned a lot, but I know for sure that I pursued my dream. I am grateful to everyone I worked with in the US investment industry.
After years of working in the US investment industry, my regulatory history is clear, not one client ever filed an official written complaint against me, and there have never been civil or criminal suits from anybody against me.
This fact can be easily verified from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Information on persons licensed to work in the US investment industry is public. Anyone can find civil and criminal matters, regulatory actions against licensed persons, customer complaints, etc. on the official websites of the main American investment industry regulators: the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA):
