Hedge Fund Manager Adam Sender Has New Art Collection

Hedge Fund Manager Adam Sender has amassed quite a collection of contemporary art over the years. The Exis Capital Management CEO has $1,000 pieces worth an estimated $100 million. He owns works from Dan Flavin, Martin Kippenberger, Elizabeth Peyton, Charles Ray, and Rosemarie Trockel, to name a few. The “Home Along” exhibition, being held at Sender’s Miami Beach rental property, should fetch a hefty sum.

Sender, 45, graduated from the University of Michigan in 1992 and began working for SAC Capital Advisers LLC. He had a great deal of success after striking out on his own in 1998. With the same discerning eye for equity, Sender was able to buy works relatively on the cheap. According to the Artprice, Sender’s portfolio value has jumped some 39% since 2008.

Sender says he maintains success by choosing seasoned artists as opposed to ones who recently graduated from art school. He believes the artists works gain a bit more value after a few years. He recently added the works of emerging talents Diana Al-Hadid and Frank Benson to his collection.

Sothbey’s has been commissioned to sell some of Sender’s art pieces. A few of them are slated to fetch at least $3 million including a 1981 untitled piece by Cindy Sherman and neon work by Dan Flavin. Sothbey’s will have the works on display for 18 months and the entire collection is worth an estimated $70 million.

Now that Sender has sold his hedge fund company, he plans to concentrate solely on art. If the Home Alone exhibition is successful, Sender would like the pieces to find a permanent home in a private museum. As of right now, sender prefers to keep buying art and doing pop-up exhibitions. According to Sender, art collecting is a process that takes a lot of time. “It’s a lot different that trading and a lot more fun.”

FreedomPop Continues to Grow

There is one thing the larger mobile phone giants do not like and that is competition from inexpensive service providers. Some of the discount service providers have started to make a dent in the amount of money larger companies can bring in. However, in regards to these discount providers, there is nothing more of a discount than free, and that is exactly what FreedomPop provides. This company offers up free cell phone service to individuals up to a certain point, which makes it especially valuable. It is also what is helping the company continue to grow not just through the United States, but to Europe as well. Other large mobile phone companies have started to try and buy out FreedomPop in order to avoid the kind of sales numbers drop they have seen in the past, but it looks like FreedomPop is here to stay and is set go continue to grow for years to come.

How is it Free?

Many people might wonder how in the world they are able to receive free service from FreedomPop. The company buys out data from Sprint in the United States at a wholesale price. It then gives out small portions of the material it buys to its customers for free. Clients in the United States are able to receive up to 300 minutes, 300 text messages and 300 MB of data for free. Then, if they want more than this, they are able to buy it from the company at a very inexpensive price. The company also offers extensive Wi-Fi coverage throughout the country, so there is a strong chance clients might never actually need to buy more data. The company is also raising money in order to spread its services out throughout the United States and the UK. It recently raised $30 million, which brings the three year raising total to nearly $50 million since its foundation in 2012. With this money, the company has been able to expand its services and continue to grow. It now has nearly one million customers inside of the United States alone.

With the new influx of raised money, FreedomPop has been able to look towards other markets as well. Its next market goal is the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe. With the UK plan, clients who do not sign up for any sort of long term contract or anything like that, receiver 200 minutes, 200 text messages and 200 MB worth of data for free (data is more expensive to purchase in the UK than the US which is why users receive a bit less). However, they do have international calling included with their service, so they can call over 60 countries for free. FreedomPop is also currently setting up a feature where the customer can travel to a dozen different countries without any sort of roaming. This way, a customer can travel with their phone to the United States, France, Germany, the UK and other locations without having to pay an added cent.

Jimmy Fallon Almost Lost a Finger

Comedian and “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon recently regaled his audience with the story of how he almost lost his finger in a freak accident. Many fans including Christian Broda were wondering where Fallon was after he had to take a two-week hiatus from his talk show. When the 40-year-old returned to his hosting duties, he explained to everyone that he was in Bellevue Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit for the past ten days. But what happened to him?

 

Fallon told his audience that he suffered from an injury in his home that almost caused him to get his ring finger on his left hand amputated. He said that he tripped over a braided throw rug and put his hands out to break his fall. When he started to get up he noticed that his finger was bent at an odd angle. Thinking it was broken from the fall, he went to the hospital where he learned that it wasn’t a break. Doctors told him that he had something called ring avulsion. His wedding ring got caught on a counter on his way down from the fall and pulled his finger out of place. He underwent a six hour surgery in order to save his finger.

Royce Reed’s Dance Studio Tampons

Nobody likes getting evicted says Bruce Levenson, but even worse is being evicted from your place of business and being forced out on false claims. Apparently that is exactly what Basketball Wives star, Royce Reed is dealing with right now, because her landlord wants her out of dance studio and claims that the reason is due to tampons clogging the toilet, and damaging the plumbing in the rental space. The landlord also stated that Reed is a month behind on her rent, he wants her gone and he wants her to foot the bill for the damaged plumbing.

Royce insists that she not only paid her rent, but she isn’t kicking in the cash for the plumbing because there is no proof that she or her clients are the reason for the plumbing issue. Royce is refusing to pay to fix the plumbing, and also shared that the issue caused flooding in her dance studio. Flooding can’t be good for business, so it is easy to see why Reed is so upset.

According to Royce allowing the flood was just one of the landlord’s mistakes, the other was allowing another renter to open a gun store in the same location as her dance studio. A dance studio and gun store in the same location clearly wouldn’t be the best of Ideas, and Royce is convinced that it was not a mistake on the landlord’s part. The only fair outcome for the eviction would be to scrap it.
