Robust Portfolio Approaches for the Challenging Decade Ahead

Lessons from the Harvard and Yale Endowments and numerous studies of actual results show that adding diversified, non-correlated alternative investments to portfolios has not only increased returns beyond traditional portfolios but has done so with significantly less risk. David Johnson, principal and chief investment officer, shares his opinions on what lies ahead in the next decade, and what individual investors can do about it. A 25 year veteran of NASA and the U.S. Space Program, David will show mounting evidence of a continuing tough environment for traditional investments over the next decade (the problem), and how to select portfolio components that have the potential to increase returns and reduce risk in this environment (the potential solution). Stocks, Bonds, Managed Futures, and Real Estate all have their places in the robust portfolio for the next decade. The key is learning what each has to offer and how to use them together effectively in this challenging investing environment.
