Many of the names are mispelled.

Hi, David,

The other part of the story, of course, is to remember (i) the fiduciary responsibility that pension funds and other large institutional investors have towards their constituent investors and (ii) that investors, no matter how small they are, have a right to know in what they are invested. Tim Oren's point that many individual investors lack the sophistication to understand or stomach the volatility inherent in VC (or other private equity) investments is valid, but that then also raises the question as to whether such investments are appropriate for them. What does it mean if an institutional investor cannot explain an investment to his constituents? Shouldn't an institutional investor be able to do so? I agree with you and Tim that looking at the returns of funds of too recent vintage can be misleading, but the same cannot be said of funds that are at stages that should be considered of more mature vintage. If funds of maturer vintage are performing poorly, shouldn't it be valid for investors to question the appropriateness of the fund's investment strategy?

Questioning is always valid to a point. If you question too much and you are not sure of what I am doing ("I" in the metaphorical sense) then take your money and invest it yourself or take it to another fund. Investing in new ventures aqre risky, but the booty, oh boy, all that shining gold ...

Wayne

...which is the point, Jaime. (Individual) investors in a fund can't raise an issue, if they don't know that there is an issue...

please do invest it yourself or take it to another fund

...were it always that simple for some to swap their dollars out of their pension funds...

Researching the web, I found your topic, within this Blog. I will be launching www.sec-filings.com within the next few weeks. Sec-Filings.com, will include company Blogs. Currently the Dow 30 has been completed, and should have sp 1500 done within the next 2 weeks, before continuing with the nasdaq. A large project to say the least.

Hi David,

This is very interesting. can you find out who the Anglo American Investments are. It seems they are based in buckhead, Atlanta. I have been receiving quite a number of invitations from one Mr. Anthony oppenheim and one Mr. Al Dobbins.

Federico

Hello David.

I started receiving mails from Anglo American Investments, from Mr Anthony Oppenheim.

Can anyone tell me if this is a valid company or what are they?

Jerry

Re: Anglo American Group. Having just returned from a meeting with the Anglo American Group, Anthony Oppenheim and Al Dobbins I can attest that they are real people. They are also Venture Capitalists and their proposal is a stiff one. If anyone would like more details on what was presented to us, please let me know.

Hello,

About Anglo American Investments, I'm not agreeing with you Jerry!!

Anthony and Al, their real names are Anthony D. Tobin and Eyal Itzhac Dulin and they're criminals, search in the web about this criminals as well Bertus Hermanus Wilhelmus Sieckmeijer who suppose to be the funder!

If you contact these criminals you only going to loose money and time.

Contact the Attorney of the State of Goergia and you will find the truth about this criminals.

Hello all

I would love to hear from any or all of you who have had dealings with them. Please post here or email me at hqscrewedus2@yahoo.com
The best of luck to all of you out there who have been victims of these guys.
