A musical pioneer, Cassio Audi first made an impact on the psyche of the Brazilian public in 1985 when his band, Viper benefitted from his role as the drummer with the heavy metal group. It is hard for many people to associate the current incarnation of Cassio Audi as a leading financial investment specialist who has followed his own dreams and upset the stereotypes associated with both the financial and music industries; Audi is now looking to create a new way of interacting with his own investors who feel they are being given a new chance at investing in their own future with the aid of Cassio Audi.
The drummer made his way to the financial industry after finding initial success with Viper from its establishment in 1985 through to the development of their second studio album, “Theatre of Fate”. Cassio Audi set out to find music inspired success when he joined Viper as a teenager and set out to become a leader in the development of the unique sound of heavy metal in Brazil. One of the major areas of success for Viper in their early years was the development of their own sound based on the music created by British heavy metal bands including Iron Maiden.
Cassio Audi is now one of Brazil’s leading entrepreneurs and financial leaders who are credited with his role as a developer of the Brazilian markets now ranked as the fifth largest in the world. The development of the Brazilian heavy metal genre can be charted back to Cassio Audi and his fellow members of Viper who created one of the first Brazilian heavy metal bands to find success across the planet following the release of the debut album, “Soldiers of Sunrise”.
Wells Fargo is being sued by the city of Philadelphia. Known as the largest lender of mortgage, Wells Fargo has been sued on the grounds of offering unfair lending policies to a specific race in the country. This act is a direct violation of the lending act according to the lending institution. What is worse or best depending on fair judgment, this law suit was filed two weeks into the American court ruling where it was declared that cities are allowed to sue lenders in case of discrimination. This is based on the fact that such discrimination causes defaults to minority borrowers. It also contributes to the destruction of lower property taxes as well as increased costs that are channeled towards combating crime.
The law suit also goes ahead to increase legal conflicts in Wells Fargo with additional accusations that point out to the fact that Wells Fargo created unauthorized accounts for customers with the aim of meeting company’s objectives in terms of sales. Issuing a statement on behalf of Wells Fargo, Tom Goyda the spokesman of the company said that the law suit was unjustified because the allegations do not reflect the bank’s operations. Adding that the bank has been part of the society for over 140 years, Goyda defended Wells Fargo on the grounds of excellent service delivery coupled with fair lending.
The case against Wells Fargo was filed in 2004 with a minority of borrowers subjected to higher-cost as well as riskier loans. In different and multiple scenarios clients were in a position to apply for better loans but the policies issued by Wells Fargo tied them to unfair loans. To explain the case, Karl Heideck, a prominent lawyer explains the logistics of the case. In what he describes as redlining, Karl says that this is a practice that was prominent in the past. A certain community, in this case the black Latino community, is subjected to unfair borrowing of the loans. Usually illegal according to the law, redlining is discriminative and unethical. It therefore, means that Wells Fargo must face the hands of the law for the people of Philadelphia to find justice.
