LEAGUE's Emanuel Arruda To Speak At Values Based Business Summit

September 11, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Cape Town, South Africa | Victoria entrepreneur Emanuel Arruda will speak at an upcoming international conference about how values-based business has helped LEAGUE survive and thrive through recent years of economic uncertainty.

"To survive and prosper so far in the twenty-first century, we have to embrace the global common good rather than individual self-interest," said Emanuel Arruda, Co-Founder and Co-Chair at LEAGUE Financial Partners. "To achieve success, leadership must value the well-being of all stakeholders: employers, employees, citizens, leaders, customers, investors, partners, society, and the environment. It is nothing less than full spectrum sustainability."

Arruda has been invited to participate the Barrett Values Centre's 2012 CTT International Conference will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from September 19-21, 2012. The conference addresses the theme "Realising Our Human Potential: Creating the Shift Towards a Sustainable Future." The conference will include hundreds of speakers and participants from all over the world.

Arruda's presentation will discuss how the LEAGUE Credo is integrated in everything the company does, from successful marketing and sales, to hiring to managing, and everything in between.

"LEAGUE Financial Partners manages in excess of $1.15 billion in real estate and sustainable energy assets," said Arruda. "We're focussed on capital growth, cash flow, or both to more than 3600 families - our Member Partners."

About LEAGUE Financial
Since syndicating their first commercial property purchase in 2005, LEAGUE's co-founders Adam Gant and Emanuel Arruda, have grown LEAGUE Financial Partners to manage more than $1 billion worth of assets in Canada.

From the very beginning, the co-founders' goal was to provide individual investors, who traditionally do not have access to institutional opportunities, to pool their capital with other like-minded investors to invest in commercial real estate projects.

LEAGUE accomplishes this goal through two companies: LEAGUE Financial Partners (LEAGUE) and LEAGUE Investment Services Inc. (LISI).

LEAGUE Financial Partners has rapidly evolved into one of Canada's fastest growing companies, ranking #13 in the 2012 listing of the fastest growing companies in Canada by Profit Magazine. Assets under management include: the LEAGUE IGW REIT, a private $300 million Real Estate Investment Trust, comprised of a portfolio of Canadian commercial, industrial and residential properties; the public $430-million Partners REIT (TSX: PAR.UN), an open-end real estate investment trust focused on acquiring and managing a portfolio of retail and mixed-use retail community and neighbourhood centres; and individual Limited Partnerships ranging from office buildings to Big Box retail power centres.

This continuing growth and strong performance are in part related to the values in the LEAGUE corporate credo. Values that hold in high regard honour, friendship, and cooperation with the LISI Member Partner investors, in the pursuit of our common goals. LEAGUE also donates five per cent of its profits to philanthropic causes.
LEAGUE Financial Partners finds, acquires, improves and operates investment properties on behalf of LEAGUE Investment Services Inc.'s more than 3,500 Member Partner investors.

LEAGUE Investment Services Inc. (registered as LISI Investments in Nova Scotia) commenced operations in September 2010 when it became an Exempt Market Dealer, registered in all Canadian jurisdictions across Canada. LISI's mandate is to provide its 3,500 Member Partner investors access to institutional style investments.
