Healthcare Investing Hotshots Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod Reunited

Merlin Bio Med Group was an investment management company that specialized in healthcare. This company was co-founded approximately 20 years ago by Stuart Weisbrod. Weisbrod was a pro when it came to healthcare and biotechnology. Weisbrod had previously held positions at Prudential-Bache Securities, Oracle Partners, Harpel Partners and Merrill Lynch before starting his own company. His professional experience assisted in providing him with the skills that led to him hiring his all-star team. In the year of 2000, Jacob Gottlieb joined this all-star team as a portfolio manager. During this, time Merlin was at the peak of the biotechnology revolution. Gottlieb assisted in this company’s impressive achievement of returns that reached over 100 percent. Even though at this time they were not equal partners Weisbrod and Gottlieb were still a force to be reckoned with in the world of healthcare investments.

In 2007 Merlin went out of business and returned all the funds to their former investors. Although Merlin closed up shop the years spent there were not a total waste of time due to the results of the experience Gottlieb and Weisbrod gained. Gottlieb created his own investment firm after Merlin went out of business. Gottlieb’s firm, Visium Asset Management was worth 2.5 billion dollars in 2008 around the time of a recession. Thousands of business’ suffered and closed for good during this recession. With these almost inevitable odds against him, Gottlieb managed to pull through and managed to a score a hedge fund of $8 billion dollars for his company. However, this triumph plummeted in 2016 because three executives were accused of mismarking and insider trading. This caused a negative chain reaction for Visium that resulted in public destruction and the involvement of the FBI. Just like Merlin, Visium went out of business, however, Gottlieb has not. As for Weisbrod, he followed in the more successful footprints of Merlin by modeling his subsequent investment firm, Iguana Healthcare Partners after the investment strategies that worked well with Merlin.

Weisbrod and Gottlieb are still kept busy with their current independent funds but the two have decided to reunite under the same offices and rejoin forces for a future project. As of July 2018, Gottlieb is still trying to settle his unsettled business with Visium. Simultaneously Gottlieb is also deeply involved with his recent company Altium Capital. It has not yet been revealed when or what they are working on but judging by the results of their previous projects it is safe to say that whatever it is will make quite the statement.

OSI Group Expands Production Capabilities in Spain

OSI Group is continuing their expansion around the world as the demand for their products increases. In 1909, the butcher shop in Chicago owned by Otto Kolschowsky that would eventually grow to become OSI Group was opened by the German immigrant. Like many other businesses in the German-immigrant community eventually, the business was passed down to his sons who devoted their careers to growing the company into the multinational corporation that it is today. In recent years OSI Group has made considerable efforts to increase their presence and production capabilities in Europe and surrounding areas through various expansion and acquisition efforts.

One of the main products in high demand in that region are various chicken products, especially in Portugal and Spain. In the last ten years, studies have shown that there has been at least a 6% increase in demand for the protein every year. One of the main efforts to increase production capacity in the region by OSI Group was an expansion of one of their existing facilities located in Toledo, Spain. While the plant could process around 12,000 tons of chicken a year that has now been increased to 24,000 tons. In total, the plant can process 45,000 tons of meat products including chicken, pork, and beef. The expansion did not just include areas to increase production of their products, it also included features such as storage, a shipping area, refrigeration rooms, and a social area.

One of the most interesting features of the expansion includes a testing kitchen that will help the company improve their current products as well as develop new ones that will meet the needs of their growing customer base. Food manufacturers including OSI recognize that the preferences and tastes of consumers will constantly change over time and they must be prepared to meet these demands to stay successful. The local economy has also benefited from this considerable expansion as well. To meet the staffing needs of the expansion OSI Group needed to add 20 new people to their workforce. This addition brings the staff count at the Toledo, Spain plant to around 160 people.

Cryptocurrencies hit the market very unexpectedly as a sidekick product that was from another invention. Bitcoin’s inventor and founder, Satoshi Nakamoto says this is a decentralized digital type of cash system that involves a large network of peers.

End Citizens United Seeks Campaign Finance Solutions

End Citizens United filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, saying Rick Scott’s campaign used a “super PAC”. He is accused of avoiding federal limits on direct contributions to candidates’ campaigns. Rick Scott helped his campaign coffers by raising $78 million. Scott’s New Republican PAC violated the anti-coordination law and planned to get him elected to the US Senate, but he was their former chairman. Adam Bozzi, ECH’s Communications Director, believes Scott cares more about his political ambitions than the law. Scott evaded campaign finance laws using soft money from the super PAC.

Scott’s campaign denied the accusations, but documentation was presented by End Citizens United that suggested he was still working with the PAC recently. In January, the PAC’s website said Scott was the chairman.

Follow End Citizens United on Twitter

End Citizens United was created in response to a decision made by the Supreme
Court in 2010. It was started on March 1, 2015 to bring about campaign finance reform. It supports candidates who want to get Big Money out of politics and ballots that focus on this topic. They want to overturn Citizens United, which allows donations to be unlimited and undisclosed. They are based out of Washington DC.

Despite Scott’s denial, End Citizens United found out that he and the New Republican are working together with the Jenny Rucker fundraiser. Rick Scott and the New Republican had the same address and they paid for one of his polls. He was raising money in February for the New Republican, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The Washington Post said he hosted a dinner for the New Republican donors in March. Mark Caputo said they campaigned for Scott in March, while one of his polls was in the paper. End Citizens United complained that the Committee gave his campaign money.

They believe more Democrat elections will lead to campaign finance solutions. They also want disclosure laws passed by Congress. Mr. Bozzi believes it is necessary to overturn Citizens United trough a constitutional amendment. The argument should be that unlimited campaign contributions are not covered by free speech.

Herbalife is Integrating AI Technology With its Business Model

The term Artificial Intelligence has multiple meanings for various industries. In the car industry, artificial intelligence refers to the new market for self-driving cars. In technology, AI refers to digital personal assistants such as Alexa and Siri. However, in the medical industry, AI can mean better customer and patient satisfaction, and that’s a guarantee.


As with many other evolving industries, the healthcare industry is finding ways to utilize AI technology in order to provide quality healthcare services and products to their customers at reasonable rates. Herbalife is one such company looking to utilize AI technology in order to leverage better health options for its loyal consumers.


Founded by Mark Hughes in 1980, Herbalife has always strived to provide customers with top-quality products, professional personal service, and a chance to improve their overall health for the long-term.


Herbalife is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. It is estimated the company employs nearly 8,000 people worldwide and operates in 95 countries. According to the company’s website, Herbalife’s mission is to fundamentally change the nutritional habits of the world, from the beginning it seemed that the company already did.


The company’s phenomenal success with a protein shake designed to help people manage their weight propelled the company to dizzying heights on the world stage. In the first five years, the company increased its sales from $360,000 to $426 million impressively.


As a company dedicated to the well-being and nutritional needs of people for the past 30 years, Herbalife is committed to continuing helping as many people as possible for as long as possible.

All of this is part of Herbalife’s plan to elevate the customer experience above anything else. Herbalife hopes to build strong relationships between customers and distributors no matter what it takes.


But even though Herbalife plans on integrating new technologies into their current policies, that doesn’t mean the company will stray from it’s personalized experience that distributors and customers enjoy currently. Instead, the company hopes to find a balance between distributors, the technology they need to successfully satisfy customers, and of course customer satisfaction.

Chris Burch Strikes Gold With Nihi Resort

Fashion mogul Chris Burch decided in 2015 that he would take a popular destination for surfers and transform it into a five-star resort location. The resort would be named Nihi and would be located on a remote Indonesian Island called Sumba. The vision had by Burch was soon executed and his Nihi resort was singled out as the top hotel in the world in both 2016 and 2017 by Travel & Leisure magazine.

The island of Sumba was once known as Sandalwood Island and is twice the area of Bali at 4000 square miles. The remote island was first found by Portuguese explorers in the 16th century and is now home to approximately 600,000 people. Islanders have minimal contact with the outside world and the island was ignored for the most part due to its lack of natural resources.

Surfers rediscovered the island in large numbers during the 1980’s and flocked to a left-handed break that spawned 20-feet waves not far from what was at the time the island’s only resort, Nihiwatu. The literal translation of Nihiwatu is ‘mortar stone’ and this name was given to the beach to describe the rock formations, reference (


Chris Burch learned of the island’s reputation when he was told that the Nihiwatu owners, Claude and Petra Graves, were reaching out for help at expanding the property. Burch next reached out to a friend and South African hotelier James McBride and requested that he visit Nihiwatu.

McBride emerged from his trip to Sumba greatly impressed but relayed to his friend Chris Burch that he did not know what could be done with the island due to the fact it is in such an isolated location. He particularly pointed out that travel from New York to the island would take 28 hours.

Chris Burch decided to visit the island not long after along with McBride and left with similar feelings of both amazement and confusion. Burch visited the island a second time, this time accompanied by his three sons, all of whom are surf enthusiasts, at which time he decided to purchase the Nihiwatu resort, according to

Chris Burch took on friend James McBride as a partner and the two began the process of renovating the resort which would run up a tab of $30 million. The holding of Burch and McBride on the island not total 700 acres and is a popular destination for wealthy travelers that come from all over the world, find out on
