The Benefits of Foreign Investment - Real or Not

So recently I decided to expand my investment portfolio because I am not getting any older and one day, I will completely retire, it was time to make sure my future was set.

Sure, I have some pretty good(or at least I think I do) real estate investments abroad and have a pretty steady gig with my sports betting picks but it never hurts to be prepared.

So I decided to try my hand in investing in foreign markets as I was reading that it's a great way to diversify your portfolio.

I am currently looking at a few of the top foreign investment companies and I have to say that I am overwhelmed with all of this information and am starting to wonder abut how safe is investing abroad.

Any help would be much appreciated as to what is the best way to invest abroad and which companies are safe and secure but also have the best ROI.

Gaming Company to Help the Jamaican Bobsled Team

So I just read this press release from  I normally would think that a press release from an online sportsbook would be just a way for them to get some free advertisement but in this case, I think that their heart is somewhat in the right place.

you be the judge as here is the press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 20, 2014 Gaming Company to Help the Jamaican Bobsled Team San Jose, Costa Rica – Sports entertainment and gambling company 1vice S.A. has created a financial campaign to help the Jamaican Bobsled team to help them with the cost of going to the 2014 Winter Olympics Games in Sochi, Russia. As two-man bobsled team, led by 46-year-old Winston Watts, has earned itself a place in the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, they still have one obstacle to face, an $80,000 bill to cover travel and equipment cost.

If the Jamaican Bobsled team can come up with the money, it will be the first time in 12 years that Jamaica will have a presence in the Winter Olympics.

Unfortunately, the Jamaican team led by 46-year-old Winston Watts is not supported by Jamaica and are asking the public and companies for help.

President of 1vice S.A., Johnathan Griffin is a long time supporter of the Olympic Games and what they represent and has taken the initiative to help the Jamaican Bobsled team by offering his gaming client the chance to help out.

For every deposit made between January 20th, 2014 and January 29th, 2014, Mr. Griffin will give donate $5 to the Jamaican Bobsled team. In addition, any of his players who wish to make a contribution from their 1vice betting account; Mr. Griffin will match that donation.

“Ever since I saw the movie Cool Running with John Candy about the first Jamaican Bobsled team, I have been a huge fan of theirs and have been following them throughout their history.” said Mr. Griffin. “I strongly believe in what the Olympics represent and about underdog teams that have heart and high hopes which is why I want to do everything I can to help out.”

Winston Watts and brakeman Marvin Dixon of the Jamaican Bobsled team advanced through qualifying races in St. Moritz and now only have two more weeks to come up with the money.
