Theodore C. Nevins III, for 27 years, has been in the finance and securities industry living in New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Beijing. Mr. Nevins worked for several notable American Investment Banks that did not entirely survive the banking crisis—Merrill Lynch (merged with Bank of America), Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns, to name a few. As a successful Repo trader and salesman in U.S. Treasury bonds, and bond derivative funds (CDO’s, CBO’s and neutral duration funds), he can effectively explain what caused the 2007 economic collapse, and explain why we are in the current World Financial Crisis.
In Beijing more recently, Mr. Nevins and his partner were the exclusive Investment Advisors for Mainland China’s wealthiest man, ranked by Forbes. Working closely with the largest Private Equity Funds and Investment Bank funds, he successfully motivated a significant shift from this client’s core consumer electronics business into Middle Income Residential Construction in second tier cities.
Mr. Nevins has since moved into building an entertainment enterprise as an investor and Production Coordinator with A.P.N.G. Enterprises, Inc., which owns NEW-GEN Universe comic books. NEW-GEN comic books are published and marketed by Disney’s Marvel Entertainment, LLC. The next phase will be the production of a film slate based on the Epic Bible Story written by the famed Jeff Gomez, www.starlightrunner.com, who also created the bible stories for Pirates of the Caribbean, Tron Legacy, and Avatar, to name just a few. Together with the NEW-GEN founders, Nevins will engineer A.P.N.G. Enterprises into a dynamic social media company with businesses in Video Games, Toys, and Virtual Reality.
He is also is the co-founder of Wall Street Cosmetic Surgery (WSCS) with Dr. Kirk Brandow. WSCS is a global medical tourism business that will begin to focus on the interests of the emerging Chinese Middle Class. WSCS will eventually operate in Beijing, Shanghai, and in Cambodia. North American patients soon will be able to visit the Caribbean nation of Grenada, where Dr. Brandow studied medicine early in his career.
Mr. Nevins is profoundly concerned with the challenges confronting Global Conservation and preventing the Extinction of Endangered Animal Species. He cites Chinese Medicine, Poaching, and Deforestation/Habitat Destruction as the main culprits driving the Great Apes and Big Cats to the brink of extermination. Potential solutions are DNA Cloning, Breed and Release Programs, Conservation Land banks, and Species Protection Law Enforcement. The Global Leopard Protection Trust will provide a think-tank to work with Countries and develop resources to fight extinction.
Finally, Theodore Nevins supports a cure for childhood cancer, and recognizes the potential of a Nano Science cure. He supports the St. Jude’s Children's Research Hospital.
