We subscribe to the principles that insight tends to give rise to foresight, and that the best research is designed not just to detail the frameworks and assumptions of a thesis, but to help the readers think more clearly for themselves about a given set of issues.
Our research is designed to be practical to the investor who has a global perspective and must make asset allocation and currency decisions within their portfolios.
Every 4-6 weeks on average, we publish The Portfolio Construction Strategist (known as our ‘PCS Reports’).
These PCS Reports are anywhere from 5 to 65 pages long and are designed principally for private investors with a global focus who must make asset allocation, investment and currency decisions within their portfolios.
Our PCS Reports are educational, practical and timely... seeking to better understand both the opportunities and risks pertaining to equity, bond, currency and commodity markets around the world.
Within the PCS Reports we do our best to tackle the hard issues and to focus our efforts on the things that are not well understood by most sophisticated participants – i.e. the ‘grey areas’ in their thinking.
