FastFunds Financial Corporation Announces Plans to Develop and Market Financial Products and Services for the Hispanic Community

WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - October 10, 2013) - FastFunds Financial Corporation (OTCQB: FFFC) announced today the formation of Financiera Moderna, as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company to develop and market financial products and services targeted for the Hispanic Community.

Financiera Moderna ("FM"), or "Modern Finance", plans to develop an array of financial products to be marketed to the underserved Latino population. The spectrum of financial products to be offered included insurance, secured credit cards, real estate, mortgage products and financial literacy tools.

There are currently more than 50 million Hispanics in the United States and the U.S. census bureau has projected this group of consumers will have $1.5 trillion in purchasing power by 2015.

FM has signed a Term Sheet pursuant to which, it will hold interests in:

I. A Spanish Direct Sales organization distributing insurance and financial products throughout the Hispanic Community.
II. A Spanish Branded Real Estate Firm producing and airing Television shows and radio shows in Spanish to promote communities and drive home sales.

Execution of this vision will be headed by Alfredo Rodriguez, Chief Executive Officer of "Financiera Moderna". Mr. Rodriquez has demonstrated prior success in banking products, financial products, marketing, and direct sales. His personal understanding and expertise in developing a proprietary and replicable business model will be instrumental to the success and viability of the company. 

Jayden A. Slentz, will be serving as President of Financiera Moderna. His experience as an executive with successful marketing, insurance, and real-estate will provide the guidance and strategy to penetrate one of the most underserved and expansive pockets of American society. Slentz will play a key role in operations, implementation, and development of new products and services.

The Term sheet signed provides the following key points:

  • An exchange of voting common stock between the parties;
  • An agreement to market financial products to the Latino community as FM may develop. Each product or services to be marketed will be addressed separately in terms of distribution channels, costs and profit margins;
  • FM, through FFFC, will commit to provide working capital; and
  • FM would receive a commission based on gross revenues of each entity.

Mr. Rodriquez and Mr. Slentz are the controlling individuals of the above entities entering into the Term Sheet with FM.
