Posted in Press Release - National

Harrells Christian Academy

Duplin, NC, March 6, 2019 Founding partner and CEO of Partners South Estate Planning, Inc. and Fox Business News Contributor Timothy R. Fussell visited Harrells Christian Academy and spoke with students taking a course in personal finance.

Holding a Ph.D. in Finance from Arizona State University, Fussell had a wealth of knowledge to share with students about how he got his start in Duplin County. He recalled growing up on a farm, working hard, and realizing that he wanted to get ahead in life.

Fussell encouraged the students, “One of the greatest things you’ll ever do is to decide what interests you and figure out a way to make a living doing it.”

Since getting his start helping local farmers secure their livelihood, Fussell has built his career and his reputation to include clientele all across the country. He is a CPA and CPE instructor, a member of The Association of Financial Educators as well as a NL Group Member of NASBA. Many of the students were astounded to hear the story of how he started out in life just like them but has managed to become remarkably successful, affluent, and able to help others become so as well.

Though he was quick to joke with the students about his luxury vehicles, expensive designer suits, and world travels, Fussell kept it humble and reminded the students, “Happiness isn’t having what you want, it’s wanting what you have.”

Alpha Investment Inc. Seeks To Fund Up To A $500-Million Pipeline of Commercial Real Estate Loans

Posted in Press Release - National

Times Square

Miami, FL, July 12, 2017 Alpha Investments Inc. (OTCPINK:ALPC), a subsidiary of Omega Commercial Finance Corporation (OTCPINK:OCFN), has repositioned its operations to create the ability to underwrite and structure complex transactions and enable the company to customize creative capital solutions for other lenders, mortgage bankers, borrowers, and owners, all within the commercial real estate financing sector.

ALPC shall primarily invest and provide lending capital to seasoned commercial real estate lenders through a Lender-to-Lender "Cost of Funds" lending model with built-in risk tolerances within the CMBS, Alt A, Bridge, and Hard Money financing sectors.

Alpha Investments Inc. is led by Timothy R. Fussell, PhD, as Chairman of the Board and President, and Todd C. Buxton as CEO and Vice Chairman. Each member shall bring, implement and coordinate the various operational tactics necessary to fundamentally create shareholder value to both ALPC and its parent company, OCFN.

Operationally, ALPC has hit the ground running since its reorganization in February of 2017. One of ALPC's sister companies has submitted numerous executed term sheets over the past 6 to 12 months slated for potential funding. This pipeline encompasses a total of $359,950,604 in commercial real estate loans, which are seeking a combination of debt and equity financing. These financing requests are now through the processing stage and into the origination phase. There are also another estimated $100-million to $150-million of CRE financing opportunities in the pipeline at the term sheet stage. Mr. Fussell, the Chairman of ALPC stated, "The strategy is to utilize ALPC as the balance sheet lender for these loans, which are forecasted to generate future loan interest income for ALPC in addition to participating equity income from certain loans structured accordingly."

ALPC is considering the use of a Direct Public Offering and/or PIPES for a capital raise of up to $500-million for the execution of its business model. This DPO will enable ALPC through an SEC registration to privately market and offer its free trading shares directly to the public. Mr. Buxton, ALPC's CEO, stated "This capital raising platform model will have key fundamentals that we plan to maintain in order to attract ALPC to institutional investors." These fundamentals include an untainted balance sheet with no long-term or short-term debt obligations and/or derivative liabilities. In addition, the ALPC strategy will support its various synergistic sister companies that are all vertically correlated to provide each operation with potential growth capital opportunities.

Partners South Insurance Solutions of CA, a subsidiary of Partners South, will be the first of the group to provide these free workshops, starting with four businesses in Southern California. “The reality is that many people just don’t have the basic education and skills they need to make smart financial choices for their future”, said Timothy Fussell, PhD, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Partners South. “Working with AFE allows us the opportunity to give hard-working Americans the information they need to make wise financial decisions that will ultimately affect their future comfort”, he added.

Retirement Confidence Rebounds in 2014 Reports Partners South Insurance & Estate Planning

Posted in Press Release - National

Times Square 1-27-2014

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL - November 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the 24th Annual Retirement Confidence Survey, the longest running survey of its kind in the nation conducted by the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI), reports that Americans who have active retirement plans are now more confident that they are on track to have enough money to comfortably retire when the time comes. "That type of information raises a lot of questions," says Timothy Fussell, PhD, Founding Partner and CEO of Partners South Estate Planning, a full-service solutions-oriented insurance and estate planning firm headquartered in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. "How do I save?" "How do I make my money last?" And "How do I avoid a nasty tax surprise?" are just a few of the questions our clients ask about their retirement options," Fussell said. "Thankfully, we have proven ideas and solutions that help our clients whether they're near or moving into retirement," he added.

Recently, AARP® published a series of articles in the September edition of AARP The Magazine addressing some of the real problems facing retired, middle-aged, and young Americans. "The AARP articles provide great information for people of all ages looking to secure their future," Fussell said. "Retirement options abound – knowing the best ways to maximize your retirement savings and income is the difference between retiring comfortable or retiring concerned," he added.

It was Benjamin Franklin who said, "In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Taxes weigh heavy on every working and retired American's mind. Competent tax advisors will generally encourage splitting funds between a 401k plan and ROTH IRA, however, even the best advice isn't the best for everyone. "If you've created one retirement plan, you've created one," Fussell said. "Every person, every plan, is different – no two people have the same needs for the immediate or long-term future."

Americans are living longer and that's one reason why so many institutions are weighing in with retirement options and advice. The number of available retirement options can be mind-numbing. Even the US Treasury, the IRS and the Federal Reserve Bank have all very recently publicly advised Americans to have annuities with income riders in their 401k accounts and to invest in Life Pay Annuities in retirement. There are tax-deferred growth options that provide tax-free income available for Americans of all income levels and options that are tax-deductible for business owners and the self-employed. "Management fees, market downturns, and income tax liabilities are all questions that should be asked before entering into any partnership who will act as guardians of your future," Fussell said. "Those who prepare and plan will face their financial future without fear."

Florida Governor Rick Scott Meets With Dr. Fussell To Discuss Plight Of Florida's Self-Employed Small-Business Owners

Posted in Press Release - National

Florida Governor Rick Scott with Timothy Fussell

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL - October 15, 2014 - Governor Rick Scott met yesterday with Timothy Fussell, PhD, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Partners South, to discuss the plight of self-employed small-business owners in Florida. Fussell, a staunch supporter of the independent businessperson, has devoted his career to building insurance products that address and alleviate the stresses and pressures that small business owners face in competitive local, national and global markets. Gov. Scott, whose gubernatorial campaign centers on Let’s Keep Florida Working, has a vested interest in continuing the conversation about how the health of Florida small businesses can be influenced by financial products specifically created and designed to protect livelihoods, loved ones, and long-term successes.

“In the last four years, nearly 650,000 new jobs have bolstered the Florida economy”, Fussell said. “That incredible growth brings incredible responsibility. It is our responsibility to help small business owners plan for their future; the future of their families; and the future of Florida”, he stated.

The meeting between Scott and Fussell took place at the Ft. Lauderdale law offices of Gray|Robinson, a full-service corporate law firm that provides legal services for emerging businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals across Florida. Fussell, like Gray|Robinson, has built Partners South into a multi-faceted company. Most recently, he created a strategic alliance with Tax Advising Partners, LLC of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. “Jobs and Tourism are on the rebound in Florida. Proper accounting, tax and estate planning services are critical to the financial recovery and resurgence of Florida investors and businesspeople”, Fussell said. “Our alliance with Tax Advising Partners creates a single-source solution for clients seeking strategic business planning, tax guidance, accounting operations, and insurance and estate planning”, he added.

Fussell has pursued strategic alliances in other states that face comparable issues to those that he sees in Florida and North Carolina, his home state. “Every state has its own distinct challenges, but when the health of the small business is protected, those that serve these entities are protected as well. Everybody wins”, Fussell said.

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL - September 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Partners South Insurance and Estate Planning, headquartered in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, is pleased to announce its strategic alliance with State Street Tax & Accounting Advisors of Dickinson and Watford City, North Dakota. The alliance creates a single-source solution for clients seeking strategic business planning, tax guidance, accounting operations, and insurance and estate planning. "Market conditions in today's economic environment make seemingly polar opposites, Florida and North Dakota, quite similar," says Timothy Fussell, Ph.D., Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Partners South. "With the rebound of tourism in Florida and the oil industry rebirth in North Dakota, proper accounting, tax and estate planning services are critical to the financial health of any investor and businessperson."

Currently representing clients in the Great Plains region of the U.S., the new alliance will allow State Street Tax & Accounting Advisors to extend its reach into Montana and surrounding states. "We're excited about the possibilities this new union has to offer our current clients and communities," said Christopher Matysek, EA, MST, Principle of State Street Tax & Accounting Advisors. "By joining forces we are able to offer better and broader services to our local communities," he added. The Dickinson location will soon be home to a Business Broker who will provide exposure to local business owners wishing to sell. Attorneys for the group will focus solely on estate and tax planning and the insurance agency strength provides a depth and breadth of resources not found elsewhere.

"It's clear that North Dakota is facing issues similar to those we are seeing in other states where Partners South has a presence," said Fussell. "In fact, North Dakota is very similar to California from an estate taxing standpoint; to North Carolina and their farm-related food industry issues, and North Dakota can relate to the booming growth Georgia is currently enjoying. Increasing the strength of offerings for both companies benefits everyone."
