Graeme Holm has invested almost two decades of hard work into establishing his career in the financial services sector. He gained his inspiration towards this niche when he learned of the poor level of financial dealings that Australians have to undergo. With great strength and vigor, he ventured out to open up his own broker firm that prioritizes paying off mortgage with a reduced interest.

 

Being the founder of Infinity, Holm explains his approach is different from that of traditional brokers in the sense that it uses a fact-finding technique, which includes going into great detail regarding household expenses, to accommodate clients with expert advice and practice. These expenses focus on needs, as well, as wants. His firm interacts with clients thoroughly, usually, spanning over multiple meetings to understand, analyze and assist clients in implementing scheduled cash spending budgets for various necessities such as groceries, fuel, travel etc.

 

The approach attracts all sorts of individuals and families and the firm hasn’t yet met a client it hasn’t been able to help. Infinity’s clients range from athletes like Paul Gallen to young navy officers. Infinity’s debit card concept is aimed at controlling consumer spending. This basically entails using cash to pay and if one doesn’t have cash, then he’s not buying it. Every dollar is assigned a purpose before being spent. This helps the consumer focus and learn the difference between a need (necessity) and a want (desire), all the while, he stays accountable to his goals.

 

Realistically, consumers’ hard earned money ends up being spent on things that just end up in the garbage just within a small period of being purchased, when this money could be and should be put towards their mortgage. This will not only help reduce daily interest but will also enable them to mitigate expenditure.

 

Having direct access to a form of financial security such as credit cards is an average enemy to consumers. A debit card can also operate with the same flexibility, as electronic spending is psychologically easier and instills less guilt in spenders. Statistically, it can be seen that nearly 30% of Australian households were over-indebted in the years 2015 and 2016. Capital cities Sydney and Melbourne ranked highest over accumulating households debts. This is why consumers should learn to exercise restraint when it comes to hyper-expenditure.

 

Graeme Holm explains that Infinity goes beyond commissions on mortgage products to earn money. It charges a fee to work out a debt reduction model and assigns clients personal bankers. It then charges 10% of clients’ annual debt reduction. The resulting benefit is that an Infinity client will pay more towards home loans in the first three months than he did in the 12 month period without the guidance and support from Infinity.

 

Infinity established a debt reduction model so as to counter the banks’ tendencies to discourage debtors from paying off their loans so quickly.

Infinity believes in a win-win situation for both the client and the company. It believes the stronger the result is for the client, the stronger it is for itself as well.

The human rights movement has worked hard to help bring attention to many important issues around the world. People who are involved in this issue are those who are willing to confront the fact that many nations of the world need to do better by their citizens. Many governments of the world even in today’s world have done little to provide for the needs of most of their citizens. In some parts of the world, the entire nation is essentially controlled by a small band of people who are not necessarily inclined to share power with those living there or particularly willing to make sure that such residents even have access to basic necessities.

Many human rights activists done much to help focus attention on certain places in the world. Their work has often helped people living in such nations that they can have help when they are trying to improve their living standards. In doing so, many human rights activists have been able to focus attention on as specific part of the world and help bring pressure to bear on what may be going on there. Such activists aim to help shape world opinion about a given area. They may also wish to help push leaders in other countries to demand that leaders in that part of the world change their basic policies. Any given activist may wish to help provide people living in that part of the world with better access to basics such as food as well as other kinds of rights such as the chance to express themselves freely without any kind of retaliation from the government in question.

One such human rights activist is Yeonmi Park. Park grew up in North Korea. North Korea is one place where people have started to focus attention in recent years. This part of the world is controlled by a small group of people who have fundamental power over the entire nation. They have done much to enrich their own pockets and little to help provide for the needs of people living there. Park grew up in North Korea and was forced to endure all sorts of awful things happening to her. She and her family often went without enough food despite the fact that the nation has the resources to feed itself. She was able to beat the odds and leave the nation of North Korea for the nation of China.

After leaving this nation, Yeonmi Park on youtube has worked with her fellow human rights activists to help tell the world what is going on in North Korea and push the leaders of the nation to do far better by their own people. She has repeatedly told what it was like growing up here to many audiences around the world as well as via the internet. The result of her efforts has been that many people have heard her story about what is going on in North Korea today and learned more than expected about this part of the world.
