Raj Fernando Explains the Importance of Investing in Employees

In his article, Raj explained the success that comes when a company creates time to collect significant information and insights from in-house staff regularly. The article was posted on his blog on June 3, 2016.; A study conducted in 2015 indicated that nurturing, engaging and attracting employees makes them feel recognized and appreciated, hence improving performance. Raj was referring to an article on Harvard Business Review, “Why John Deere Measures Employee Morale Every Two Weeks.” The HBR article stated that a company that tracks elements of motivation together with quality and speed of product development is well positioned to enhance its productivity. This metric is known as velocity. It has proven to reduce the time taken to introduce new features and products to the market.

Prior to Scoutahead’s official launch, Raj Fernando intended to apply the above strategy to bring change in his company’s employee-engagement system. However, the company is planning to expand this strategy of engaging with employees. This will be made possible by creating a Scoutahead platform to offer companies, individuals and students a free environment to manage their own growth. The platform is built on privacy and anonymity principles, whereby the user gives and gets information that is strictly meant for them. This technology makes it enjoyable and easy to engage any size or group of any nature. Raj Fernando said that Scoutahead would be followed by a series of other features, which will make the technology unique and powerful.

A No Scruples Investment Bank: Laidlaw and Company

In the course of past litigation pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada between Relmada Therapeutics, Inc. and Laidlaw & Company, Ltd and its principals, Matthew Either and James Ahern, the court “enjoined Laidlaw from continuing to disseminate false and misleading proxy materials.” Laidlaw, which had previously been Remalda’s investment banker, was seeking to gain control of Relmada. Laidlaw had a history of violating U.S. financial regulations. In its order the court stated that the injunction was necessary to prevent Relmada and its stockholders from irreparable harm.”


Either and Ahern have continued to run afoul of U.S. financial regulations. Laidlaw & Company is a investment bank located in the U.K. which has gained a reputation for dubious ethics. People who interned at Laidlaw uniformly described it as a bad place to work.


Laidlaw broker, Leonard V. Gallick, Jr., has been the subject of numerous complaints which has led the securities and investment fraud law firm of Fitapelli to solicit additional complaints regarding this Laidlaw broker.


While it is difficult to determine the exact character of Laidlaw and its principals, Matthew Either and James Ahern, based on the limited available information regarding them it appears that Laidlaw may be a notorious investment bank with unscrupulous financial practices. My advice would be to avoid doing business with them, but, if it’s cutthroat you want, then Laidlaw may be just the right choice.

Laidlaw & Company Sheds Light on the Nature of Medical Research


I’ve never been a huge fan of mystery novels or the like. And really, the same has usually been true of real life mysteries as well. But I have always been intrigued by the mystery of health and biology. Medical research is something that never ceases to amaze. But I found myself suddenly enraptured by a real life mystery when medical research and banking came together within a single courtroom.

An investment bank by the name of Laidlaw & Company is currently in a legal fight against one of their former clients, Relmada Therapeutics. Additionally, it’s been contentious enough that the judge actually issued a temporary restraining order and associated injunction against Laidlaw. Saying that it sounds like an eventful case would be an understatement. And few things catch my attention like being told I’m not allowed to hear the other side of a story. This combined with the fact that medical research was involved prompted me to start investigating further.

I assumed the best place to start is with the party which had been silenced. So I loaded up Laidlaw’s website. The information there really did make me rethink my opinions about the case, Laidlaw, and even about medical research in general. One of the biggest reasons is simply the fact that it put so much of a human face on things. The site itself detailed a bank whose history dates all the way back to 1842. Even if one added a hundred years onto that it’d be a fairly well established institution.

But the real deciding factor for me was the human angle. Two of Laidlaw’s executives had quite a bit of exposure on the site. Matthew Eitner and James Ahern both had some detailed and even rather person information open to the public. And I feel like it shows them as people with a very firm sense of social responsibility and ethical concerns. They both have a strong history of charitable work and professional investments within the medical industry. The fact that good people head Laidlaw gave me a very positive impression of the company as a whole.
