Overview

The Global Macro Edge helps identify and solve the largest problems facing investors, traders, and financial advisors today. In the process, the book shatters some of the longest held investment myths:

1. More risk does not always equal more return
—Many investors subject their portfolio to excessive drawdowns while failing to be compensated for the risk they are taking.

2. Money does not always find its most efficient home
—Numerous financial institutions product and service offerings pigeon-hole investors into a one-size fits all portfolio. This limits mobility, increases risk, and contributes to underperformance.

3. Today's markets offer more opportunity, not less
—As result of the digital age, there has never been more opportunity to access global markets. In spite of this, most don't have the tools to efficiently sift through the overwhelming amount of edgeless information to realize the benefits.

4. You can have too much of a good thing
—Failure to comprehend that a series of investments working in concert, is better than one stand-alone super star, can be devastating. When allocating capital, putting all of your money with one strategy often leads to imbalanced and unstable returns over time.

5. Diversification isn't enough
—Conventional methods of position monitoring do not provide the necessary market expertise and technology required to maintain attractive risk/return profiles for the life of the investment.

The Global Macro Edge provides a universal framework allowing readers to take both a top-down and bottom-up approach to Next Generation Investing. Investing driven by one overarching goal...maximizingreturn per-unit-of-risk.
