Sunday review - Krafty 3G, BHS and the French poacher turned gamekeeper

There are some excellent investigative features knocking around in today's business sections.

I particularly enjoyed Oliver Shah's piece in The Sunday Times on some of the murky characters behind the purchase of BHS from Sir Philip Green.

The intrepid hack appears to be leading the way in bottoming out who was behind this rather opaque deal and their backgrounds. Here is a link to Oliver's piece: 

Iain Dey and Matthew Goodman's focus article on the boys from Brazil (also known as 3G, which last week purchased Kraft for $40 billion) was full of brilliant colour and made me chuckle.

The piece also appeared to suggest 3G is working on further deals, such as a potential purchase of SAB Miller, despite last week's mega transaction.

Elsewhere, I really enjoyed Ashley Armstrong's "Rainmaker" column in The Sunday Telegraph on Vincent Bollore - the poacher turned gamekeeper - and the detail about the upper echelons of the french business community. Here is a link:

  1. Hello Everyone I am Daniel Steve from Texas, USA. I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called Mr Mason Diego who controls a firm called Diego Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($170,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of you who is interested in getting a loan without collateral, no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans/ schedule, to please contact Mr Mason Diego. You can contact him through his email:
