Let’s talk consumers, public perceptions and insurance. Allow me to introduce our Kingsway readers to the Slabbed Nation

Yeah I know it must hurt some of y’all reading my post that introduced Kingsway Financial Services to our readers and probably less consolation that the average Slabbed reader is very well heeled representing the cream of retail P&C insurance, their lawyers, offshore reinsurers, consumer lawyers and our political establishment. I also suspect some of ya’ll are still scratching your … Continue reading “Let’s talk consumers, public perceptions and insurance. Allow me to introduce our Kingsway readers to the Slabbed Nation”

The Center cannot hold! While financial issues churn, Kingsway Financial Services burns. KFS = Kentucky Fried Shareholders?

TURNING and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. TURNING and … Continue reading “The Center cannot hold! While financial issues churn, Kingsway Financial Services burns. KFS = Kentucky Fried Shareholders?”

Should the solvency of Kingsway Financial Services matter to Mississippians? Don’t count on Mr Chaney for the answer.

I’ll admit it, until I was tipped I had no idea who Kingsway Financial Services was or whether they were doing business in Mississippi. Then again I am a hard hat CPA so that should be expected. But what about our DOI? Curious, I began to google and before long I tuned up one of Kingsway’s … Continue reading “Should the solvency of Kingsway Financial Services matter to Mississippians?

From the Slabbed finance page: Former FBI Agent Hal Neilson hired as CEO of Here Enterprises. Hedge Fund Manager Joseph Stilwell heads to court to silence bloggers

And what in the blue hell does this have to do with Slabbed? In the case of Mr Neilson some of my former partner in blog Nowdoucit’s finest blogging was done on that abortion of a prosecution that was USA v Neilson that included Slabbed classics such as FBI Agent Hal Neilson may face new trial by … Continue reading “From the Slabbed finance page: Former FBI Agent Hal Neilson hired as CEO of Here Enterprises.

If I may be so bold: Those that aren’t following Sop on the ETM Yahoo Message Board are missing out on some great fun.

My 5 years exclusively blogging on finance message boards gave me the skills to bring you Slabbed.  This issue in the Garlandfill saga, Corporate Ethics, is a topic we have covered a time or two on Slabbed and is very fair game on the investor sites like Yahoo! ETM which in turn also explains why the Society … Continue reading “If I may be so bold: Those that aren’t following Sop on the ETM Yahoo Message Board are missing out on some great fun.”
