ELEMENT turns 20!

Dear Fellow Investors A material milestone for Element was passed on 7 April 2018 with our company turning 20 years old! It has been an eventful, interesting, challenging, inspiring, emotional and (at times) fun journey for all of us that have been part of the Element fabric for all or part of the last two decades since 7 April 1998. We would like to thank all our stakeholders: Clients, Staff, Shareholders, Advisors, Consultants and Friends who have supported us through the years. We look forward to the next 20 years of our Element journey together.

“I’ll be back”

Remember “SKYNET”? For those of you not too well versed with the “The Terminator’s” main antagonist, a quick reminder courtesy of Wikipedia: “Skynet is a fictional neural net-based conscious group mind and artificial general intelligence system that features centrally in the Terminator franchise and serves as the franchise’s main and true antagonist. Skynet was originally built as a “Global Information Grid/Digital Defense Network”, and later given command over all computerized military hardware and systems… The strategy behind Skynet’s creation was to remove the possibility of human error and slow reaction time to guarantee a fast, efficient response to enemy attack.”

Offshore Misadventures

“Instead of buying back shares or raising dividends, profitable companies often prefer to blow their money on foolish acquisitions. The dedicated diworseifier seeks out merchandise that is (1) overpriced and (2) completely beyond his or her realm of understanding. This ensures that losses will be maximized.” Peter Lynch, One Up on Wall Street.
