World Money Analyst
Introducing… World Money Analyst
From Mauldin Economics
For six months, we worked hard to find, recruit and enlist a globally diversified team of successful analysts and investors to share their deep understanding of their backyard markets – and the very best ways to invest in those markets.
Their unique analysis is brought together in a breakthrough new service – World Money Analyst – designed specifically to help you and other smart investors step off the shaky treadmill that comes from keeping all your investments, and all your assets, in a single politically controlled jurisdiction.
Simply stated, with World Money Analyst you'll have your own team of highly competent analysts, strategically positioned around the globe, working at your side to search the world for the next big opportunities.
You'll have a decisive advantage over single-market investors.
Meet The World Money Analyst Team
First and foremost, the contributing analysts whose work you'll be privy to in the pages of World Money Analyst are not slick "talking head" brokerage firm pitchmen, nor are they Ivy League academics pontificating about the unknowable.
Rather, they are internationally sophisticated, in-the-trenches investors who spend every day making money for themselves and their clients. An example: In our first issue of World Money Analyst, readers were introduced to Claudio Maulhardt, the Buenos Aires-based partner of Copernico Capital Partners.
It literally took us months to convince the publicity-shy Claudio to serve as our Latin American analyst, but we're glad we kept at it.
- That's because Claudio is a conspicuous winner. Despite sizable corrections in most Latin American markets in 2011 – Brazil (down 18.8%); Argentina (down 32%); Chile (down 13%); Mexico (down 4.9%) – Claudio's fund was up 4.85%.
As you don't need us to tell you, anyone can make money in a rising market. But it takes a special kind of investor to make money in one that's falling.
And Claudio's in very good company. Among your other team members:
Grant Williams, Global Macro. Grant is a Singapore-based portfolio manager and strategist for the Testudo Fund as well as author of our very own popular investment letters, Bull’s Eye Investor and Things That Make You Go Hmmm . In addition to keeping an eye out for opportunities in the region, Grant is part of the analyst group tasked with positioning World Money Analyst readers in powerful emerging investment trends.
Gordon G. Chang, China. Author of The Coming Collapse of China and columnist for Forbes.com, Gordon's analysis on the outlook for the Chinese juggernaut has regularly been a wake-up call for financial sinophiles. With China's economy now showing signs of fracturing, his unique insights and exclusive analysis for World Money Analyst have never been more important or timely.
Stephen Belmont, commodities market strategies. Tapping into his deep experience as chief market strategist and senior partner with the Rutsen Meier Belmont Group, Stephen will provide you his best trading ideas in global commodity markets.
Alexei Medved, Russia and the CIS. With an MBA from Wharton who pioneered East European investments in 1989 while working for a major global investment bank, Alexei Medved is a hands-on (and very successful) investor in Russian equities and bonds.
For the record, the Russian stock market beat all the other major stock markets in the world for the years 2000-2011 – and by a very wide margin: the US market was essentially flat over the period while Russia was up 671%! Maybe there's a more knowledgeable investor in these markets, but we don't know of one.
Chuck Butler, currency watch. In any international investment, the currency component can enhance (or hinder) your returns. In each monthly edition of World Money Analyst, Chuck Butler, head currency analyst and president of EverBank World Markets, guides you on a quick trip around the globe to find opportunities in the latest developments in world currencies.
