Overview

Massive demographic, environmental, and economic shifts are generating new investment opportunities all over the world.

The Esoteric Investor identifies some of these investments through the lens of thorough fundamental analysis.

Vishaal B. Bhuyan begins by explaining why professional investors should become more creative in sourcing opportunity. He demonstrates the immense potential in pricing and trading the $24 trillion of longevity risk carried by private pensions around the world and the new instruments associated with them. Next, he shows how global events offer sustained profit opportunities in specific commodities markets most investors still ignore.

If you’re looking for potential investment ideas that most portfolio managers haven’t yet exploited, The Esoteric Investor will be an indispensable resource.

Three Detailed Case Studies--Find tomorrow’s profits where others aren’t looking:

• Demographics: Life markets in an era of aging populations and collapsing pensions

• Tuna: Fishing for profits where you least expect them

• Water: Profiting from the world’s most important commodity--survival

Competing with millions of mainstream investors can no longer deliver superior results. Fortunately, there are promising alternative paths to profit--and you’ll find them here.
