Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 549 - Wind and Rain Consulting Company’s developments
The next morning, Feng Yu arrived at Wind and Rain Consulting company. A pretty girl at the front counter saw Feng Yu and said: “Sir, how can we help you?”
Feng Yu looked at her and asked: “Are you new here?”
The pretty girl was surprised. I had tried my best to be professional. How did this person know I am new here? Could this person one of the regular customers here? But he does not look like one.
This person seems to be only 20 years’ old. Wind and Rain Consulting Company’s clients’ requirements were at least 1 million.
“Sir, are you our customer?” The receptionist bows forward slightly and asked.
The pretty girl immediately straightens her back. You are not a customer; why are you still so arrogant? It’s none of your concern whether I am new here or not! Do you even know what company this is?
“Sir, our minimum investment here is 1 million, and the minimum duration is one month.”
Feng Yu smiled and shook his head: “I am not here to invest. I am the boss of this company.”
After saying that, Feng Yu wanted to walk in, but the pretty girl ran in front of him to stop him.
“Sir, please stop joking. If you carry on, I will call the security. Our company is the most successful company in this building! Do you know how much funds our company managed?!” The girl said in an angry tone. You are the boss? Bullshit!
At that moment, a senior broker walked in from outside. From his expression, he should have gotten a big customer.
“Boss? Why are you here today?” That broker was one of the more senior employees of the company. He joined the company together with He Zhaoji, and he knew who Feng Yu was.
“I am here to take a look. Go and do your work.” After speaking to that broker, Feng Yu turned to the front counter girl.
That pretty girl was stunned. This person, who was about her younger brother’s age, was the boss of this company? She kept asking herself if she had scolded this person just now. Will she be fired after working there for a few days? Where else will she find such a high paying job?
If it weren’t for the former receptionist going for maternity leave, she would never get the chance to enter this company.
“Boss…… Boss…… I’m sorry.”
“It’s fine. Carry on with your work. In the future, if you are not sure, you can check with your senior colleagues. Don’t make assumptions.” Feng Yu will not make things difficult for her. It was normal for people to not recognize him. Feng Yu was the one who told He Zhaoji to not show his photographs in the company. Furthermore, this girl was very pretty, and she was suitable to be sitting at the entrance greeting the customers.
Feng Yu walked into the office, and the staffs stood up to greet him. Feng Yu waved them off. As a financial broker, they have to monitor their screens closely. If they made any mistakes, there might be high losses.
When Feng Yu reaches He Zhaoji’s office, he saw He Zhaoji walking out of the pantry with a teacup: “Boss, I have prepared your tea.” He Zhaoji heard that the boss was there, and he immediately went to prepare a cup of tea.
“Ok. Tell me about the company’s progress.” Feng Yu entered He Zhaoji’s office and sat on the sofa drinking the tea. He frowned and put down the cup. Zhang Ruiqiang’s tea leaves still taste better.
“Boss, the funds we are managing have just crossed the 1 billion HKD mark. Among the total funds, there is your 300 million HKD, and the rest are from our brokers’ customers. We followed your instructions and only accept customers who invested more than 1 million HKD. Currently, our company has made a name for ourselves in Hong Kong. Many Hong Kong stars are our customers.” He Zhaoji said.
Feng Yu nodded: “What is our rate of returns?”
“We are mainly investing in the US market and a small portion in oil, gold, and futures. Our returns are at least 6% every month. The highest yield in a month is 17%. Our average monthly yield for this year is 9.3%.
9.3% returns a month was alarming. Of course, this was also because Feng Yu had often guided them. Although the company does not have lots of brokers, they had improved a lot.
Maybe Feng Yu had given the brokers higher commissions, and they could make more money than before. It might also be that Feng Yu had told them the future trends accurately and they were impressed by Feng Yu. Since the company was set up, not a single broker had left their job. In fact, a few more top brokers had joined the company.
Those brokers had spoken among themselves. Even if they could not get customers, they could also invest with their own money. After deducting the cost, the returns will not be low either. The trend forecasted by the boss had never been wrong, and all of them made profits from their investments.
There were a few times when the oil and forex market was quite volatile, and they were worried sick. But in the end, it was as what their boss predicted.
At first, the brokers had to go out to find customers. They were mainly looking for their old customers when they were still working as independent brokers. But now, they do not need to look for customers. Customers started to look for them on their own accord.
Feng Yu had also set the rules for this company. He only wants elite brokers. The company started off with 10 brokers, and later they hired a few more people. Including the front counter and the cleaning staffs, there were not more than 20 people in the company. This was very different from other brokerages.
But Wind and Rain Consulting Company had something other companies could not win. Since the company started, it had never lost money. There will be profits every month.
The people who looked for brokers were people who do not know how to invest. This was why they hired brokers. These people wanted to make money, but they were also afraid of losing money.
In every company, there will be some who made lots of profits and some who loses all the investments. But in Wind and Rain Consultancy, this had never happened.
Although the company could not make its customers rich overnight, they had never let their customers lose money. This was also the selling point of Wind and Rain Consulting Company.
Other companies had used all sorts of methods to attract customers. For example, they would announce their daily profits and showed how much money they had made for their customers. One brokerage will have at least a hundred of customer accounts, and some might even have a few thousand. If the company diversified its investments, they would still be making money for some accounts.
But at the same time, they will also have customers who had lost all their investments. Some unethical brokers would even use their customer’s money to speculate, and if they are lucky, they might be able to make money for the customers. But if they are unlucky, they would lose all their customers’ money.
The customer might be able to take it if they lose 10,000. But if the customer loses 1 million, they will not accept it. Those customers who had invested more significant amounts with the companies would want to kill people if they were told that the brokers had helped them lost a few million or even tens of millions.
But even if the customer killed that broker, they will also not get back their money.
This was why Wind and Rain Consulting Company emerged top from the rest of the consultancies, brokerage firms, investment house, etc. More and more people start to look for Wind and Rain Consulting Company to invest for them.
A Hong Kong celebrity, who does not know how to invest, came to Wind and Rain Consulting Company and his investments turned from 3 million to 4 million in 6 months. His friend had invested 3 million with another company, but after 6 months, his account was left with less than 100,000.
When both of them compared the results, they knew which company was more reliable and soon words spread. More and more celebrities start to look for Wind and Rain Consulting to help them invest. Some customers who had spare cash also came to Wind and Rain Consulting Company. The amount of fund managed by Wind and Rain Consulting grew bigger and slowly became one of the more successful investment company in Hong Kong.
“What do you think of the Gold market recently?”
He Zhaoji’s eyes sparkled. Feng Yu was going to lead them to trade Gold futures? Every time when the boss leads them to invest, the company’s profits will increase by a lot. The commissions and earnings of all the brokers will also increase. But Feng Yu was always busy. Today, Feng Yu finally had the time, and He Zhaoji can finally follow his boss to make some profits!
