I am a retired Canadian Naval Officer and Realtor living with my wife, Sandy, in Arizona where I spend much of my time playing tennis.I am a long time market observer and investor. My interests are travel,history and psychology in which I hold an undergraduate degree.I have learned that certainty is a disease.
I have over 30 years of industry experience and have worked to help pioneer the next evolution in investment management. My peers and I are challenging and revolutionizing the conventional “Buy, Hold & Hope” approach that has been a disaster for so many people hoping to retire comfortably.
Since the long-term secular bear market began in 2000, Global Tactical Asset Allocation has far outpaced Modern Portfolio Theory. A global tactical approach to asset allocation employs multiple asset classes and multiple strategies that provide both DEFENSE & OFFENSE for your portfolio.
Global Tactical Asset Allocation is a form of trend following that recognizes the breakdowns in markets using quantitative measures. This allows investors to leave the most risky parts of the market and focus their investment dollars where money is being treated best.
I helped found one of the fastest growing investment advisory firms at the time within a Global Fortune 100 company. Since then, I have co-developed tactical strategies and risk-optimized portfolios. In 2010, my husband and I founded Global View Capital Management, LTD to help people grow and protect their personal economies.
My very simple goal is to shed some light on how markets are behaving, so that more people can succeed in growing and securing their personal economy and financial freedom.
