VGS announces Strategic Partnership with PrivySeal to increase trust by Decreasing Fraud and Safeguarding People Online

VGS formalizes a strategic relationship with PrivySeal to disrupt fraud through professional, document and data accreditation.

AUSTIN, Texas and South Africa November 28, 2016 --Vestment Global Services LLC (VGS) is proud to announce a new strategic relationship with PrivySeal Ltd whose aim is to disrupt fraud everywhere by giving everyone access to digital ID accreditation, confidence and protection. Professional qualifications fraud and identity theft are rampant and a growing problem for individuals and businesses as we interact with an increasingly electronic world. Specifically, high levels of fraud and lack of trust in everyday business and online transactions stunt Africa’s economic pace. Professional qualifications, data and document authenticity can be difficult to verify in these contexts where identities are easily stolen. Fraudsters can compete unfairly with those whose qualifications and businesses are genuine by generating fictitious documents that are exploited with losses to individuals, financial institutions, and professionals. As a result, global and local regulators are placing increasing demands on businesses and institutions to confirm the identity of individuals, professionals, entities and transactions. 

Driving Successful Impact Investments

Driving Successful Impact Investments

Mainstream thought struggles to believe that financial performance and impact can coexist. Investors nearly universally concede performance expectations, relegating impact investments to a negligible part of their portfolios. Our perspective and experience is much different with doors open to endless opportunities.

Impact investing, or the act of placing capital in enterprises that generate social or environmental goods, services, or ancillary benefits with a targeted range of financial returns – have exploded in popularity. The Forum For Sustainable and Responsible Investment in Washington, D.C. suggests there is over $6 trillion of investments targeting these impact varieties. The volume is staggering already.

Ephrem: The Inspiration Behind Asset-Financing

Ephrem was one of our Food for the Hungry (FH) staff in Ethiopia. He was in a car accident back in 2008 while serving vulnerable populations in hard to reach areas. He inspired us to innovate a solution to care for the workers serving in FH while also scaling their ability to reach more people. This led to asset-financing and the birth of Vestment Global Services (VGS).

Since 2012, VGS has arranged 3 tranches of funding for FH as our initial client. This has enabled the purchase of 21 motor vehicles for their field staff who are reaching over 300,000 lives. Today, Greg Vestri, VGS Co-Founder, had the chance to share with Eprhem who is now fully bed-ridden, that VGS has touched over 2 million lives in partnership with amazing organizations such as FH. He was thankful and grateful that his life has had significant purpose in the midst of suffering. We love Ephrem and he is a warrior that has necessitated social innovation.
