Nutmeg and Mace Market: Mace Spice, Nutmeg Spice, Supplier Market Intelligence Insights, Cost Saving Opportunities, and Spend Growth Data Now Available from SpendEdge


SpendEdge, a global procurement market intelligence firm, has announced the release of their Global Nutmeg and Mace Category – Procurement Market Intelligence Report.

Factors like the growth in international trade of mace spice and nutmeg spice coupled with its wide range of culinary applications across India, China, and other Southeast Asian countries are contributing to the accelerating spend growth momentum for the nutmeg and mace market.

There are not many countries that account for the production of the mace spice and the nutmeg spice. This makes it necessary for the buyers to procure from suppliers who are closer to their facility. This will help the suppliers to deliver spices with low lead times and offer cost-effective purchase rates to the buyers, says SpendEdge procurement expert Tridib Bora.

Lument Provides $21.5 Million in Freddie Mac Financing for Affordable Housing in El Paso


NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Lument, a national leader in commercial real estate finance,   announced today that it provided a $21.5 million Freddie Mac unfunded forward commitment loan to facilitate the substantial renovation of Jackie Robinson Memorial Apartments, an affordable multifamily property in El Paso, Texas.  Lument is the combined organization of legacy industry experts Hunt Real Estate Capital, Lancaster Pollard, and RED Capital Group.

“By combining the Freddie Mac unfunded forward loan with tax credit equity and other soft funding sources, we were able to put in place an attractive debt structure to help improve these much-needed affordable apartments,” said Josh Reiss, director at Lument.

Originally built in 1975, Jackie Robinson is a 186-unit, 4% low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) community in the Housing Authority of the City of El Paso (HACEP) portfolio. As part of the transaction, the property will receive Section 8 assistance that will facilitate the conversion to long-term, project-based voucher (PBV) rental assistance. Subsequently, all 186 units will be restricted to tenants earning income at or below 60% area median income (AMI).

The $21.5 million Freddie Mac loan features a low, fixed interest rate, 18-year term with three years of interest only, and a 35-year amortization schedule. The forward commitment term will be 30 months with one six-month extension.

Jackie Robinson will undergo substantial interior and exterior construction, including a gut renovation of all residential units, from new drywall to new kitchen appliances. In addition, exteriors will be improved with new windows and doors, repaired or replaced roofs, and new stair towers.

Construction began in October 2020 and is expected to be complete within 24 months.

Mr. Reiss and the Lument team have financed over 960 units in partnership with HACEP, totaling $41 million. Since 2015, the team has financed over $565 million in RAD transactions for a total of approximately 6,500 units.

Former SEC Senior Counsel Strengthens McDermott's Investigation & Litigation Bench


BOSTON, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — International law firm McDermott Will & Emery continues to grow its litigation footprint with the addition of Boston-based partner Caitlyn M. Campbell, former senior counsel to the co-directors of the Division of Enforcement at the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), who brings significant experience in SEC investigations, international investigations, anti-corruption matters as well as securities and derivative litigation.

“Clients will immediately benefit from Caitlyn's sharp business acumen and well-balanced experience between private practice and as a highly accomplished SEC enforcement lawyer,” David Rosenbloom, head of McDermott's litigation practice, said. “Caitlyn recognizes that success is achieved by understanding our clients' businesses, investing in their success and putting their interests first as she works on their behalf as a fearless advocate in the face of tough government actions.”

Caitlyn spent eight years at the SEC, most recently advising the co-directors of the Enforcement Division in Washington, DC. Previously, she served as senior investigative counsel where she led all aspects of investigations involving complex insider trading schemes, market abuse, market manipulation, misappropriation of investor funds, accounting fraud, investment adviser fraud and the Immigrant Investor Program. In addition to her investigative work, Caitlyn co-chaired the committee tasked with proactively detecting accounting and disclosure fraud in the New England region, served as the liaison to the national Financial Reporting and Audit Group and was a member of the Enforcement Division's COVID-19 Steering Committee.

“I am honored that my return to private practice is with McDermott, and I am confident I can provide clients with world-class service and the informed counsel they need to tackle their most pressing issues,” Caitlyn said. “I look forward to joining the exceptional team of lawyers at McDermott and finding creative solutions to our clients' most complex problems, drawing on the knowledge and experience I have gained at the SEC.”

Caitlyn focuses her private practice on securities class action and derivative litigation, and compliance matters with extensive experience in matters involving potential violations of the federal securities laws, including accounting issues, various issues in the investment management industry, insider trading, anti-corruption and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance and whistleblower claims. Caitlyn represents boards, senior management teams, hedge funds and private equity firms in connection with matters before enforcement and regulatory agencies including the SEC, the Department of Justice, the Internal Revenue Service and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. Caitlyn holds a JD from Boston University School of Law (cum laude) and a BA from Cornell University.

Since the start of 2020, McDermott has added 24 lawyers to our litigation group and projects additional growth throughout 2021. The Firm most recently deepened our bench in New York with the addition of Carlos Ortiz.

Most Americans Ill-Equipped in Financial Retirement Planning: MoneyRates Survey


FOSTER CITY, Calif., Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Many Americans may be steering the Titanic without a map when it comes to retirement finances. A new survey finds a significant portion of the population understands very little about retirement planning and lacks essential information to make the right moves.  

The personal finance website polled 1,000 Americans who are either within 20 years of retirement age or have already reached that age. The results reveal roughly two-thirds of respondents haven't made any kind of projection of how their savings will hold up in retirement.

“A person's savings is a basic building block of retirement planning,” remarks Richard Barrington, MoneyRates' senior financial analyst and author of the survey. “One needn't be a financial expert to take control of retirement planning. People should take the initiative to get the help they need to feel comfortable with their retirement plan.”

Find the full study here: Investor Aptitude: Are You Ready to Manage Your Retirement Finances?

Key survey findings:

  • Most respondents (54.90%) haven't formulated a monthly budget for what they could afford to spend in retirement.
  • About one in four (25.80%) expect their retirement savings would last less than five years.
  • Nearly a quarter (23.10%) say if their retirement savings fall short, they'd simply go back to work again.
  • While just 20.95% of people who haven't started collecting Social Security intend to begin taking those benefits at age 62, well over twice as many – 49.28% – of those who had begun collecting Social Security did so at age 62.
  • A third of survey respondents (33.30%) admit they do not know much about retirement planning concepts.
  • Of the respondents who own stocks, more than a quarter (26.86%) don't know what percentage of their retirement savings those stocks represent.

“Stocks are the riskiest of all investments people own,” adds Barrington, “so it's rather shocking that roughly a quarter of those responding to our survey don't know how much they own in stocks.”

Since these survey results make it clear that many Americans need help with retirement planning decisions, MoneyRates suggests consumers use its resources, such as a retirement savings calculator and a guide on understanding robo advisors for assistance.


MoneyRates commissioned a survey of 1,000 people, half aged 65 or above and half between the ages of 45 and 64. Thus, half of respondents had reached the traditional retirement age and half were within 20 years of reaching that age. Questions were designed to explore key retirement-planning decisions people face before and after they retire.

Barrington is available for interviews and can discuss this survey and many other issues related to personal finance.
