Facing the Reality of Systemic Institutional Risk
I work with fund managers and their Boards to meet their fiduciary responsibilities by reducing systemic risk in a portfolio while meeting performance targets.
I provide practical advice on:
1. Evaluating a portfolio's exposure to systemic risk through the Systemic Risk Evaluation Process (SREP).
2. Reducing systemic risk through changes in asset allocation.
3. Providing access to Self-Managed Investments (SMIs), a new asset class specifically designed to provide sound returns with zero exposure to systemic risk.
The events of 2008 demonstrated that systemic risk is real. Now hard-wired into the fiat financial system the risk of financial collapse is not going away. The only solution for investors is to diversify by allocating to assets whose value does not depend upon major institutions of the fiat system.
No matter if a portfolio represents the best horse in the glue factory, the key message for clients is that they are still in the glue factory. But there is a way out.
