It uses its huge network to distribute public and private offers all around the world.
Ascendant Capital is also one of the fastest growing companies in Texas. Founded just five years, Ascendant is now operated by more than thirty employees. When Schneider founded the company, he had only two employees. In the same five years, Ascendant has also raised nearly $1 billion on behalf of its numerous managers. A feat that is not easily accomplished in today’s market.
All of Ascendant’s success is attributed to Schneider, his employees, and the massive network of associates at Ascendant’s command. There are over fifty broker-dealers, 250 registered investment advisors, and a myriad of family offices working with Ascendant on a yearly basis. Under Schneider’s leadership, the teams at Ascendant purchase whatever kind of investment has the potential for profit. The money raised by Ascendant was used to buy real estate, auto dealerships, tech companies, and much more.
When most companies would become contempt with current success, Jeffry Schneider, and his team plan to outperform their previous years. The company has plans of stopping or slowing down. Schneider has his sights set on the future and nothing can stop him. It’s estimated that Ascendant will raise about $50 million of funding every month this year. The culture that Ascendant Capital has created for itself is a big part of its success. The company environment is one of open dialogue and trust amongst fellow team members.

Dan Newlin is a famous, successful, aggressive attorney. He specializes in injury law, but his many talents do not end there. What may be surprising to some is the fact that he used to work in law enforcement before he turned his badge and blue uniform in for a suit and tie. Mr. Newlin was only 20 years old when he decided to become a cop. Over the years, he worked for the Indiana Police Department, the New Chicago Police Department, and the Indiana Fire Department. At the tender age of 18, he worked as an Emergency Medical Technician in New Chicago. Dan Newlin will be the first person to admit that he has always been drawn to public service and helping others. After working as a police officer in New York for some time, he accepted a position in Orange County as Deputy Sheriff. While he worked as Deputy Sheriff, he worked in the Fugitive Division, Patrol Division, and Tourist Policing Division; he won numerous awards and recognitions during this time, which he still is very proud of.
Dan Newlin began practicing law in his Orlando office, but recently expanded to another law office in Chicago. He believes strongly in protecting his clients and getting them the help they so desperately need if they have been injured. At both offices, there is a stellar team of lawyers that work with him to help clients the most. To make it even easier for clients to contact him, Mr. Newlin introduced #Dan, an abbreviated, specialized code so people can reach him faster. He figured that either dialing ‘pound, Dan’ would be much easier to remember than a ten digit phone number. To do this, he collaborated with four major telephone companies, who had to go to work for quite some time, and finally #Dan was born!
Dan Lewlin’s office mostly concentrates on auto and motorcycle injuries, pedestrian injuries, DUI cases, injuries on construction sites, medical malpractice and wrongful death.
To some people personal injury lawyers are simply ambulance chasers out to make a quick buck. But for the thousands of people who are inured each year through no fault of the own, personal injury lawyers are a godsend. The dedicated attorneys are often the only ones able to hold the insurance company’s feet to the fire and get their clients the compensation they deserve. Without a good personal injury lawyer in their corner, many injured parties would be left to face the insurance companies alone. In many cases this would end up with the injured party being woefully undercompensated.
Accidents happen and they often lead to serious injury and in some cases death. That is why people get insurance. But in order for insurance companies to make the most profit possible, they try to limit as much as possible the amount of money they pay out in claims. Unless the accident victim has competent legal representation they could find themselves struggling to get their medical bills and their living expenses paid. Many insurance companies offer unwitting victims a low ball settlement offer that does not begin to cover their immediate and long term medical, emotional, and physical needs. This is where personal injury lawyers can help.
An experienced personal injury lawyer is familiar with the games insurance companies play. They also know that many seemingly simple injuries can have serious long-term repercussions for the injured party. Medical costs are high and rising. Often accident victims faced with mounting medical bills accept the first offer the insurance company makes. An experienced personal injury attorney can help the victim see through this ploy. They can help the victim to understand they are entitled coverage for present and future medical bills, lost wages, lost earning potential, and punitive damages.
An excellent example of a good personal injury lawyer is Florida-based Dan Newlin. Newlin is a fighter. He’s gone to bat repeatedly for his clients and won them large legal settlements. He has earned a reputation for doing in-depth research and going to the mat with the insurance companies to ensure his clients receive the financial settlements to which they’re entitled. He recently won over 100 million dollars for a teen that suffered severe brain injuries when he was struck in the head by a stray bullet. He has also won a number of other high profile cases.
Personal injury lawyers like Dan Newlin strike fear into the hearts of insurance companies and perpetrators of negligent acts. They know the victim will get their day in court and be well represented by a competent attorney. If you or your loved one is the victim of an accident, contact an experienced personal injury today.
Many art collectors become wonderfully obsessive with their work, and Adam Sender is one of them. With over 400 pieces collected, this former hedge fund manager isn’t looking to slow down anytime soon.
Adam and his wife Leni Sender have been notorious in the art world for years, collecting many valuable contemporary art pieces like Cindy Sherman’s “Untitled #93”, a very provacative piece of art that has been the subject of controversy. Adam Sender loves provactive work that is also visually appealing. Also in his collection is a Thomas Ruff photograph, which portrays a woman in lingerie leading a kneeling man on his leash. He also has “Let’s Be Realistic” by Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari’s “Commissioned Painting: A Painting by Edgar Transue” in his art collection. His entire collection is worth over 70 million. Just last year he auctioned off over 400 pieces of his collection to make up for the closing of his hedge fund.
Unlike other art collectors who like to hide their treasures away for their own viewing, Sender is very generous in sharing his art with the world, doing pop-up exhibits and lending pieces of his collection out to galleries. In fact, he even has a website where potential lendees can go and state their case on why he should lend them his art. His pop-up exhibits are also works of art in their own right, starting with his exhibit, “Home Alone”, which tells the fictional story of art collectors so obsessive with art, that it started to take over their home.
Sender loves looking for new artwork all the time, especially from emerging artists. “That’s where the excitement is,” he said in an interview with Interview Magazine.. He prefers intellectually stimulating work that is also visually appealing. With all the white noise in the contemporary art community, it is difficult to find pieces to fit Sender’s tastes, but he has amassed a large collection all the same. He is known for his ability to find the two best pieces in a gallery within minutes because of his good eye and laser sharp focus. Even with his hedge fund closed, Sender still plans on continuing his hobby of finding and buying new pieces from emerging artists.
I started as an artist as a young kid. It was actually my friend for many years. I had other interests, but if it were up to me, I would do art constantly. In the real world, marketing good art is a task. There are a finite number of collectors, and this seems to dwindle even though the rich simply get richer. Sometimes the popular emphasis in great economies are art antiquities. When the economy is not performing as well, people will take chances on newer art. This is because smart collectors like smart investors like to acquire these more esoteric pieces during this time because the older art is being driven up by the new money that is acquiring it. Ironically, the money these savvy investors use to invest in these esoteric pieces comes from unloading the older art that they also gathered during times in which they are cheaper.
Good collectors are also like investors in that they buy low and sell high. They also avoid the popular things because of this same reason. A great example is shrewd mega-investor Adam Sender. Sender searched for and found an art genre that was deeply undervalued, but that would also be prone to explode as interest and attention was placed on the genre even if this interest came from certain moves that Sender made with the art itself. Because of this understanding, he knew to plan to generate interest and by that virtue alone, the value of the works would skyrocket. It is literally like printing your own money. Sender gained this interest by unexpectedly releasing all of the works to the open market. Of course he did this through the most prestigious international auction companies because they would also generate interest to protect and optimize their stake.
It was a genius move that was not purely about profit. The interest that he generated by collecting and releasing these has made contemporary art vogue again and possibly for many decades to come. This is the focus that contemporary art needed, and it has reverberated completely down to the gallery, individual owners and producer level of contemporary art unrelated to the Sender collection. It is also the most interest that any art genre has gained in a long time. I know this because my sales picked up greatly after the Sender collection was released. We have been able to catch that artwork on tour. We do this to sort of say thank you from reinvigorating the art world. I think that now with the increased business, I can focus on making art everyday now. Before this time in the art world, it was just not possible because I had responsibilities that needed immediate attention.
There are different lines that a trained lawyer can pursue and these areas are based on one’s preference and area of expertise. As such, lawyers have the opportunity to choose the type of cases that they feel comfortable with. Dan Newlin, a well-known lawyer is one of biggest lawyers in the area of injury. He has been into this field for several years under which he has been able to handle and win several lawsuits of this nature. His popularity has been fueled further by his propensity to win high profile lawsuits. This has brought him great pride and recognition in the legal industry and his name is not strange to many people in the practice.
As a young man and in his growing years, Dan was known as to be a very compassionate young man and he had this unquenchable desire to help people. His desire grew even stronger setting him up to join the armed forces in his early 20s. He had a great desire to help people especially helpless individuals who needed help. He knew by joining the police force he would be able to offer solutions to people problems by the authority he had as a state’s custodian of law and order. Newlin was a passionate officer and his success in the police department brought his way other opportunities that he had not thought of.
As the saying goes, hard work never goes unrewarded. Newlin worked in different police departments including the firefighting department and in the Indiana police department. It was not long before he joined the Orange County Sheriff’s department where he worked so hard and opportunities began to fall in his way. Ten years after serving in the Sheriff’s department, Newlin got a well-deserved promotion to become a Sherif’s detective. This promotion came as a reward for his exemplary performance as a Sherif’s officer. He was very active in dismantling the drug-dealing barons and halting their operations in the area.
After long years of service and dedication to his calling as a detective, he was rewarded with yet another opportunity to pursue law in the Florida State College of Law. Here he trained as for 3 years and he graduated as full-fledged lawyer in 2010. His license was recognized in both Chicago and Illinois and in both states he could practice his career. He has since developed a career that is very successful in both the states a she maintains offices in both. His success is also tied to the fact that he has very unique people’s skills which can only be attributed to his time as a police officer. Has a very strong customer base and his customers remain very loyal to him and his law firm.
