The victory of Donald Trump during the 2016 U.S. Presidential election came as something of a shock for most people who had believed polls stating Democrat Hillary Clinton would win election to the White House. George Soros has been a major Democrat donor for many years and returned to the U.S. political scene in 2015 in a major way with more than $25 million donated to Clinton and her Super PAC’s; prior to his return to the U.S. political landscape George Soros had spent much of the last decade seeking to bring democracy to the world through his own Open Society Foundations.
In returning to the political community of the U.S. he had remained on the periphery of since donating over $27 million to the campaign of John Kerry in 2004, George Soros showed just how important he felt the global political landscape was in 2016. Advisors for George Soros have recently revealed the Hungarian born hedge fund legend has rarely been as engaged politically as he has seemed in 2015 and 2016 because of the changing political environment; Soros has been closely monitoring global events in the European Union after becoming concerned by the refugee crisis on Forbes and the Brexit decision in the U.K. The work of the Open Society Foundations to educate individuals about democracy has also seen George Soros clash with Russian officials who did not feel their citizens needed to understand more about democracy.
As a hedge fund manager George Soros has amassed a personal fortune reported to have reached $25 million after beginning his adult life as a refugee from Communist rule in his native Hungary, where he had also survived the Holocaust during the Nazi occupation of the country. Soros has also made a recent return to active trading with his own hedge fund and felt the need for greater democratic and liberal leadership on Snopes was an important factor at a time when the man who made $1 billion in a single day by the devaluation of the British Pound in the 1990s feels the rise of right wing policies poses a major threat to open societies around the world.
The response of George Soros to the election of Donald Trump was to change his own schedule and attend the Democracy Alliance meeting of wealthy Democrat donors and politicians in Washington D.C. George Soros understands the need for swift action to fight the policies being discussed by Donald Trump, such as the construction of a border wall with Mexico and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act; Soros and other Democrat’s came together under the Democracy Alliance banner to discuss their own role in future elections as the use of Super PAC’s has become controversial for the public. A major part of the Democracy Alliance event was spent discussing a strategy for defeating the policies of the Republican party from the very first day of the Trump Administration that could destroy the legacy of President Obama just days after he leaves office.

What does Ignition Financial do?: Ignition Financial helps to facilitate the bond between their customers and the lenders who they work with. After an application is completed by the customer, Ignition Financial tries their best to pair them with a lender who can meet their needs and can lower their payments on a monthly basis. Not only is Ignition Financial able to help refinance loans, but they can also link companies and individuals to loans, especially if they want to buy several cars. The professionals who work at Ignition Financial do everything they can to get their customers the best loans.
Why are my current car payments so high?: If you received a loan from a car dealer, it’s likely that your dealer added on additional funds to your loan, which drove up your price each month, and you are unaware of the price hike. Even if you are working with an outside lender, your credit ultimately will determine how much you’ll pay for your monthly payments as well as how much money you put down on the car loan. Even though some lenders will allow you to get your car with no down payment and low monthly payments, these terms tend to be given to people with good credit.
How will Ignition Financial help me to slash my payments?: When you first start working with Ignition Financial, you’ll fill out an online application that begins the entire process. You’re also welcome to come down to the offices directly in order to fill out the information necessary for refinancing your loan. Your payments will be slashed once your paperwork is completed and you’ve been connected to a lender, who will give you terms that are something you would agree with. Although there is no guarantee of how much money you’ll save each month, you will definitely save money once you refinance your car.
What else does Ignition Financial have to offer their customers?: Ignition Financial does have great professionals who are able to link people with financiers who can lower their monthly payment rate, but they can do more as well. Those who work with Ignition Financial can ask about the coverages that are available for car maintenance, tires, and even the car loan that they have. Since typical insurance companies are unlikely to completely fulfill the loan repayment if a car is totaled, these coverages from Ignition Financial can help to ensure your loan is covered by the gap insurance.
When is the best time to refinance my car?: Anytime is a good time, but it is best that you have a history of payments before you choose to do any refinancing. It’s likely that your loan came with a high price tag because of lack of credit, which can be corrected with on-time monthly payments that are reported to a credit agency. Having good credit is best once you want to refinance your loan, so if your credit isn’t the best, try your best to repair it before refinancing your car loan.
