For the last number of weeks, I have been sharing my thoughts on the 2022SIC (Strategic Investment Conference). Conference presenters included former central bankers like Bill White and Tom Hoenig, leading economists like David Rosenberg, Peter Boockvar, and Jim Bianco, legendary investors like Joe Lonsdale, David Rubenstein, Dr. Lacy Hunt, Barry Habib, Ron Baron, and Felix Zulauf, and geopolitical figures including Henry Kissinger.
I left the conference with even greater conviction in my view that we are nearing what I call “The Great Reset.” Essentially, a reset of the massive debt and underfunded entitlement programs and the implications for everything. Money printing and debt monetization is the probable path (sigh).
We are in the early innings of the challenges but there are important things you can do to protect and grow your core wealth. It requires you to play an entirely different investment game. One that high net worth families and endowments have been playing for years.
If you’d like to learn what I am doing for my own investments, please provide some basic information in the following form and we’ll provide you with a few additional resources and I’ll share several of the best investment ideas.
If you have a net worth of $1 million or more and are interested in learning more, we ask that you provide some basic information in the following form. Please know that the privacy of your personal information is of utmost importance to me/us, as we know it is to you.
Lastly, if you feel inclined, there is a box below where you can ask a question or leave me or Steve a short note. You can also email me at Mauldin@cmgwealth.com. I hope you find the information informative.
Thank you for your interest,
Chief Economist and Co-Portfolio Manager, CMG Capital Management Group, Inc.

Conflicts of Interest Disclosure: Due to the association and relationship of one of Registrant’s minority owners to certain private investment opportunities including, but not limited to Cibus or Royalty Pharma, Registrant has a conflict of interest in offering such investments to qualified clients. Registrant shall disclose this conflict of interest to any prospective investor. No client or prospective client is under any obligation whatsoever to invest in these private investment opportunities.
Certain unaffiliated private investment funds, such as Vantage Multi-Strategy Fund L.P., may allocate fund assets to private companies in which equity is also held by an owner/equity investor in Registrant, thus creating a conflict of interest. Given the conflict of interest, Registrant advises that clients consider seeking advice from independent professionals (i.e., attorney, accountant, adviser, etc.) of their choosing prior to becoming a fund investor. No client is under any obligation whatsoever to become a fund investor. ANY QUESTIONS: Registrant’s Founder and CEO, Stephen Blumenthal, is available to address any questions regarding this conflict of interest.
Additionally, because Registrant and/or its Investment Adviser Representatives and affiliates can earn compensation from an affiliated private fund (both management fees and/or incentive compensation) that will generally exceed the fee that Registrant would earn under its standard asset-based fee schedule referenced in Item 5 below, the recommendation that a qualified client become a fund investor presents a conflict of interest. Given the conflict of interest, Registrant advises that clients consider seeking advice from independent professionals (i.e., attorney, accountant, adviser, etc.) of their choosing prior to becoming a fund investor. No client is under any obligation whatsoever to become a fund investor. ANY QUESTIONS: Registrant’s Founder and CEO, Stephen Blumenthal, is available to address any questions regarding this conflict of interest.
Unaffiliated Private Investment Funds: From time to time, Registrant also provides investment advice or recommendations of certain unaffiliated private investment funds. Registrant, on a non-discretionary basis, may recommend that certain qualified clients consider an investment in unaffiliated private investment funds. Registrant’s clients or prospective clients are under no obligation whatsoever to consider or make an investment in a private investment fund(s).
In the event that CMG references performance results for an actual CMG portfolio, the results are reported net of advisory fees and inclusive of dividends. The performance referenced is that as determined and/or provided directly by the referenced funds and/or publishers, have not been independently verified, and do not reflect the performance of any specific CMG client. CMG clients may have experienced materially different performance based upon various factors during the corresponding time periods.
In a rising interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally declines and conversely, in a falling interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally increases. High-yield securities may be subject to heightened market, interest rate or credit risk and should not be purchased solely because of the stated yield. Ratings are measured on a scale that ranges from AAA or Aaa (highest) to D or C (lowest). Investment-grade investments are those rated from highest down to BBB- or Baa3.
Certain strategies invest primarily in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or mutual funds that are offered by prospectus only. Please carefully read each ETF’s or mutual fund’s prospectus prior to investing. Investors should consider the underlying funds investment objectives, risk, charges and expenses carefully before investing.
In the event that there has been a change in an individual’s investment objective or financial situation, he/she is encouraged to consult with his/her investment professionals.
