Institutional Investor Magazine’s 40th Anniversary Celebration

Institutional Investor's 40th Anniversary

Institutional Investor's 40th Anniversary

“The management of money is one of the oldest of the arts and one of the newest of the professions. As a profession, it is changing continuously, so much so that it bears little resemblance to the same field only a generation ago. Perhaps, at one time, it was easy-going and social; today it is fiercely competitive and intellectually challenging.”

With these words Gilbert Kaplan launched Institutional Investor 40 years ago. Much has changed since then, and much of that change, in this magazine and in the financial markets that we cover, was anticipated by the precocious Kaplan. He was just 25 when he thought up the idea for Institutional Investor; he turned 26 in time for its inaugural issue in March 1967. Kaplan got the idea for the magazine while working as an economist at the American Stock Exchange, analyzing scenarios for the future of financial markets.

The Boomer Esiason Foundation’s Booming Celebration this year featured the theme,  On a Mission. This is a major fundraiser for the foundation benefiting Cystic Fibrosis.

Records are made to be broken, and the 2010 Booming Celebration set numerous records that will be targets for future Most Valuable Players and the rest of the Boomer Esiason Foundation team.

In one night, 850 people descended on the Waldorf=Astoria Hotel in New York City to raise more than $3.2 million to continue the fight against cystic fibrosis. It was the largest turnout and the highest fundraising total in the history of Booming Celebration.

“It was a spectacular evening. When you look how far we’ve come in 18 years, it’s remarkable,” said Boomer Esiason. “More importantly, look how far we’ve come in helping people with CF.”

The Power of Professional Photography: The Benefits of Hiring a Photographer for Your Business

Having a professional photographer to take care of your photography needs will save time, money, and give you a great product to benefit your business. Every sized business, whether product or service based, can benefit from having photographs taken of their products, services, location, and employees. These can be used in a multitude of ways, including promotional materials – from websites to brochures – as well as having images ready to give to clients and investors when necessary.[ps-gal-flash height=390 width=590]ps.jeffreyholmes.com/c/jeffreyholmes/gallery/Portrait-Corporate-and-Event-Portfolio-of-Photographer-Jeffrey-Holmes/G00006kouP1TzJU8[/ps-gal-flash]

Almost everybody now has a digital camera, so what’s stopping any business owner from taking their own photos? However, just because one can take photographs for themselves, doesn’t always mean one should take their own photographs.

A professional photographer above all has experience and knowledge. Technical knowledge of photography, as well as the creative capacity to take a stunning image is all too important to creating a unique image that showcases your business best. Most people don’t do their accounting because of lack of time and knowledge – good photography can be seen much the same. It’s all too important in business to look professional, and poor quality photographs infer poor quality products and services.

Imagine for a moment you’re comparing two new suppliers. Both are similar in products and prices, however one has poor images where the product is hard to see – the other supplier has clear images that display the product well. As a business owner laying down the cash, which company would you be more likely to go with?

Now imagine a customer looking at your products and comparing it with another business. Your images are dark, and don’t show the product or service clearly, while the competition has clear and beautifully laid out photographs. The customer will likely purchase from the competition because they want to know what they’re spending their money on.
