The CMG Mauldin Smart Core Strategy is the culmination of over 30 years of economic thinking by one of the world’s leading economic writers. John Mauldin’s relationships with the world’s leading minds on economics, investments and public policy have shaped his ability to be prescient and timely with his insights. Building on his bestselling book, Endgame: The End of the Debt SuperCycle and How it Changes Everything, John believes investors have to think differently to get through the “Great Reset” as the end of the debt supercycle is one of the most profound trends that will impact your portfolio over the next several years.
A World in Transition
The decades-long growth of debt in many countries from small, manageable levels to excessive levels is coming to an end. Bond markets will eventually rebel and the debt will have to be restructured and reduced. This will have a profound impact on global institutions, our standard of living and how we ultimately meet the investment challenges of the future. Investors will have to think differently to accumulate wealth, secure education for children and save for retirement in a world where we live longer and healthcare costs continue to rise. Similarly, investment professionals are in the midst of one of the most disruptive periods the industry has ever seen. To meet the coming challenges, investors and professionals alike will have to think beyond the traditional stock and bond investment approach. What used to be core holdings in the bull markets of our youth will no longer suffice as the tools of the future. Investors will need to rely on a better asset allocation approach, a Smart Core.
Your Investment Bridge over Troubled Waters: Diversify Trading Strategies, Not Assets
Instead of diversifying asset classes, potentially resulting in a collection of across-the-board losers, the Smart Core diversifies among trading strategies. We believe that the key during the Great Reset will be to win by minimizing losses and having the flexibility to capitalize on market opportunities. The CMG Mauldin Smart Core Strategy is a tactical portfolio that follows a disciplined process which diversifies across multiple trading strategies, with the ability to respond to the global economy on a daily basis. The Smart Core Strategy is a multi-strategy solution utilizing four ETF strategists that trade in/out of a diversified basket of ETFs across asset classes, countries, sectors, and commodities.
