Samuel Oshana, Investment Professional

Samuel Oshana has been involved in many diverse businesses over the years. He has made investments in different types of alternative areas in both New York and Florida. The bulk of his business knowledge has come from his ability to work with the right partners. Often, that has meant, being involved in the starting up of a new company and trusting the operators. One example is as a part of the start up of AP Systems, a merchant payment processing company that he helped found while he was working with First Data Corporation. He later sold Apex Data Systems for a return on his investment.

Over the course of his career, he has worked at a few brokerages around the country, such as Heartland Securities and JP Morgan. While he was working with those companies, he held Series 7 and Series 63, which are basic licenses that allow a broker to trade all types of securities, and a Series 55, which allows said broker to engage in equity trading. Throughout that time, he learned how valuable the right kind of investment is, but more importantly, the value of good partners.

In recent years, Sam Oshana loans capital to individuals and small companies, while using their real estate as collateral. He obtained a Florida real estate brokerage license, which provides him with the ability to expand the scope of his investments to include Florida residential and commercial real estate. Recently, he has focused on purchasing a great many distressed properties in Florida's Dade and Broward Counties, which he restores and then re-sells for a significant profit.
