Newest Board Member to the Financial Policy Council Board
Announced on November 27, 2018 Stanford Silverman has been named as a member of the board of directors of the Financial Policy Council.
The mission of the Financial Policy Council Inc. (“FPC”) is to formulate and promote sound public policy based on the principles of free enterprise and wealth creation as envisioned by the ideals of the American Founding Fathers. FPC is a public policy-oriented organization which seeks to educate and inform the public about economic and fiscal matters. We view America as the land of opportunity where freedom and prosperity have flourished. Our goal is to ensure that America retains an economic and regulatory system conducive to economic growth and wealth creation, and is not derailed by poorly formulated and reactive economic, fiscal and tax policy. In addition, we strongly believe that America reclaim and retain its leading role in the global economic community.We seek to achieve our mission in the following ways:
High Return, Low Risk, The Path to Prosperity Investing in Education
The Financial Policy Council is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to give its select group of supporters the opportunity to have direct face-to-face dialogue with the nation’s quintessential powerbrokers and policymakers and to produce, host, and promote events that educate the public about current affairs (domestic and global) and their impact economically. On September 12, the council hosted a panel discussion event which can be viewed by clicking here.

The Path to Prosperity: Investing in Education
The Minerva Capital Management’s investment thesis for the $1.4 trillion (2017 – 7% of GDP) education sector, the 2nd largest industry in the U.S. behind healthcare, continues to be fundamentally bullish based on strong economic, demographic, political and social developments. These factors herald continued expansion in the for-profit education sector, which, translates to generating potentially exceptional Alpha.
This sector expansion is reflected in a 50% increase in stock prices for publicly traded companies in an 18-month period (starting January 3, 2017), however, counter to traditional wisdom, we believe that the performance of the publicly traded stocks, has stalled the EBITDA multiples for non-public, privately held education groups due to their off the radar smaller size and the industry’s lack of information on their fair market, intrinsic and investment value.
Education investor Minerva launches event-driven fund
Educational investment firm Minerva Capital has launched a hybrid fund aimed at the for-profit education sector, HFMWeek has learned.
The contrarian activist, which focuses on making investments in private educational facilities, aims to raise up to $100m for the Minerva Catalyst Strategies portfolio and is in the process of seeking seed capital.
