I’m a registered investment advisor and have been managing money for over 50 years. So far this year we have beaten the return of the average hedge fund by over 50%. I have a hands-on approach to investing client funds using a strategy which employs hedging techniques, fixed income as well as equity investments. While hedge funds charge 2% of assets under management plus 20% of the profits I charge only 1.5% of the assets under my management and 0% of the profits. Hedge funds generally require a minimum investment of at least $1million. If you are interested in receiving the kind of professional service offered by hedge funds with only a fraction of that minimum requirement please check out my web site, PersonalizedMoneyManagement.com to see if my approach to portfolio management fits your financial and investing requirements.

The REIT Team’s strategy primarily pursues investments in publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) and real estate related entities based primarily in North America. The REIT Team believes public REITs are superior vehicles for investing in real estate due to their liquidity, transparency, and total return characteristics. Investing in public securities enhances the REIT Team’s ability to diversify by geography, sector, strategy, property, and tenant while maintaining portfolio liquidity. REIT property types include apartments, regional malls, shopping centers, lodging, office, industrial, self-storage, data centers/cell towers, and a variety of health care related facilities. The REIT Team focuses on traditional methods of security analysis; primarily research, critical thought and analytical depth, which are integral to their investment process. The REIT Team’s investment approach seeks to combine its real estate industry experience with traditional methods of security selection to make sound investment decisions in real estate companies.

The posts are meant to be informative and hopefully insightful. I write to share my ideas, highlight some interesting stories and to interact with other investors - please feel free to contact me if you'd like to chat further.
I make lot's of mistakes so please do your own due diligence. I don't intend to aggressively promote stocks but it's fair to say I am often talking my own book.

To those who had been following my articles, I apologize for my abrupt exit from posting on SA. In mid-2015, I decided that sharing my investing views with everyone on Earth with computer access just wasn't worthwhile, since that inherently includes some problematic individuals. Since then, I only occasionally publicly comment on stocks via Twitter. The rest of what follows was my SA profile so that I won't have to rewrite it in the unlikely event I resume posting articles publicly. Best of luck with your investments.

More than 1,400 of his articles on investment-related topics have been published in various regular newspaper, journal and Internet columns. He has also published a book, Financial Basics: Investment.
Prieur is chairman and principal shareholder of South African-based Plexus Asset Management, which he founded in 1995. The group conducts investment management, investment consulting, private equity and real estate activities in South Africa and other countries.
Plexus is the South African partner of John Mauldin, author of the Thoughts from the Frontline e-letter, and also has an exclusive licensing agreement with California-based Research Affiliates for managing and distributing its enhanced Fundamental Index methodology in the Pan-African area.

The primary goal of these events is to raise funds for a number of charities, especially Proud Partners – an organisation formed by Plexus in co-operation with Prieur’s wife, Isabel Verwey (former TV producer and presenter), which uplifts previously disadvantaged communities through the provision of musical instruments and tuition to a large number of schools.

If you’re an investor, and not on the frontline of the global resource chase, then you’re nowhere.
The world has finally arrived at a major tipping point, where the challenge of dwindling resources is being met by innovative new drilling, extraction, refining and alternative technologies.
The offshoot is almost inconceivable profits.
The catalyst, of course, is the global resource chase, which represents the most powerful movement of money ever known to mankind. And Oil & Energy Daily can put you on the frontline of it, which is no insignificant feat.
You see, the global population is growing (not shrinking). It’s also getting richer (not poorer). On such merits, more and more people are chasing after fewer and fewer resources – with no end in sight.
At Oil & Energy Daily, we embrace the reality of a diminishing supply. Because supply shocks lend themselves to unparalleled profit opportunities. The likes of which the world has never witnessed before.
But you have to know where to look.
These days, the most prolific profits might be buried beneath the icy waters of Alaska’s North Slope. Or they might be tucked away in a Chinese dictator’s desk.
The only surefire way to unlock such an opportunity is to get “boots on the ground” in some of the world’s most volatile (and dangerous) regions, which perfectly describes Oil & Energy Daily’s research methodology.
We’ll be reporting from every conceivable corner of the energy market, including the Middle East.
In doing so, our experts will bridge the tremendous (mis)information gap that exists between you and what’s actually happening on the frontline of the global resource chase.
