The past few months I’ve pondered the effect of the most recent financial and political events and how they will impact a person’s portfolio for the next decade. The question I’ve attempted to answer in light of the soaring sovereign debt and global instability is, “What does a portfolio need to look like going forward to produce sufficient returns?” This is a piece of financial advice that I think is both timely and useful.
While I have many thoughts on this, one is the addition of a new asset class to the nine I am currently using, which is managed futures. Even though the first managed futures fund came about in the 1970’s, this is not a well-known asset class. Surprisingly, educational material on this alternative investment vehicle is not yet easy to locate.
I will provide a useful primer on the asset class that will prove to be valuable to clients in this teleclass. Join me this Thursday March 18, 2010 at 2:00pm MST for this presentation. Click here to register.
