WFI Chairman´s Message

Dear Members and Friends,

Herewith the very sad message of our chairman, Mark Northway, informing us of the death of Roger Ganser, former WFI Chair.

It is with deepest sadness that I must inform you of the death of former WFI Chair, Roger Ganser on 16th July, following a long struggle with an insidious illness.

Roger was awarded a Bachelor of Education from the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater, and a Master of Public Administration from the Rockefeller School at Stater University of New York - Albany.

In 1982 Roger founded the Madison Capital Corporation, which later changed its name to Venture Investors of Wisconsin. He served as its CEO and President, and a member of the Board of Directors, and as Managing Director of funds until his retirement in 2008 but continued to serve in an advisory role since then.

In 2001, he was awarded an Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for his role in the creation of a venture capital industry in Wisconsin.

Comunicado sobre AG da Mota Engil de 19 de Março 2021

A Mota Gestão e Participações (holding da família Mota) tem acordada a venda direta de 55 milhões de ações da Mota-Engil, S.A. (EGL) à China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) pelo preço de 3,08 euros, ou seja mais do dobro do preço da cotação atual (cf. comunicado enviado à CMVM ).

A EGL convocou para o próximo dia 19 de março uma Assembleia Geral de acionistas cujo ponto único é a alteração dos seus Estatutos com o fim de evitar o lançamento de uma Oferta Púbica de Aquisição (OPA) por parte da CCCC.

Perante o exposto, a ATM entende que:

GameStop Case Highlights Discrimination of “Retail” Investors in Stock Markets

4 March 2021?– In January, the market value of American video game and electronics retailer GameStop, driven by an “army” of “retail” investors[1], shot up from $1.4 billion to $33.7 billion.  This dramatic increase in stock price caused hedge funds that were shorting[2] GameStop to “suffer” significant losses and accuse retail investors of market manipulation. This standoff between “retail”[3] and professional investors revealed the challenges faced by “retail” investors in equity trading: discrimination and conflicts of interest.

Once the extent of the GameStop stock surge became clear, hedge funds themselves started to buy GameStop stock in order to limit their losses, thereby redoubling the pressure on the stock (this is known as a short squeeze).[4] Considering that the main “retail” platform on which most of the “retail” trading activity was taking place, was channelling all its retail orders to Citadel[5], a hedge fund, and that this platform suspended its services at the same time as the short squeeze taking out the retail investors betting against short sellers, it is quite ironic that those same short selling hedge funds shouted “market manipulation”!
