ABOUT
High Quality Investment Analysis.
Our contributors are professional money managers and investors, with experience in institutional money management, trading, venture capital, HNW advisory and entrepreneurship. We are not "newsletter publishers", or journalists writing for an investing blog.
Intellectually Sound, Not PC.
Our content is about investing in a world increasingly affected by geo-politics and capital flows. We point out irrational government policy, social movements and the madness of crowds, and equip our readers with unfiltered analysis, regardless of how controversial it may be.
Theme Based.
Our articles usually stem from our individual investment research. Currently these are energy, interest rates, commodities, the USD, shipping, offshore, cryptocurrency and the Eurozone to name a few. You can choose the sort of content you want, or get it all.
Skin In The Game.
Our contributors all participate with their own capital in what they are covering and make their money investing. Some of them welcome subscribers who get their research, others run investment funds, which at times they will offer exclusively to our readers.

INVESTMENT THEMES
NATURAL RESOURCES
Capital investment into the resource industry has been falling since 2012, nearly a decade and the supply deficit some few years hence is looming. Given the rising trend of resource nationalism, the industry will have to play catch up, and we're ahead of the curve.
ENERGY
 Fossil fuels are a dirty word, though we can't think of another sector so primed to make a comeback. We are in addition pursuing other opportunities in energy, all of which have the promise of truly asymmetric returns.
THE US DOLLAR
The 2007/8 financial crisis saw unprecedented lowering of interest rates coinciding with trillions of dollars in USD borrowing. As the political landscape shifts causing volatility in currency markets and divergent interest rate policies, we are positioning for USD to run.
JAPAN
We believe the tail risk to Japan experiencing a currency crisis is underpriced and should they have one the Japanese equity markets (long shunned) will reprice violently upward. Fortunately Japanese equities are some of the cheapest in the world.
SHIPPING
An oversupply of container ships exacerbated by credulous credit markets brought about the inevitable. An industry that failed to meet expectations only to collapse with a deluge of bankruptcies, scrapping of vessels and reorganisations. Today few will dare tread here and as such the order books for new ship builds are terrible with many shipyards having shut their doors. Find out why we're excited.
INTEREST RATES
At the tail end of a debt supercycle being short bonds and long rates seems like one of the most asymmetric plays for the next decade. How to execute on this is however where things are not so clear cut. We've found various means to position for this without the inherent risks that accompany the obvious choice of trading futures.
GREECE
They've been through a crisis, the country is terribly mismanaged, corrupt and still hemmed in and constrained by the EUR which doesn't allow them to adequately manage fiscal policy. The market knows and understands this which is why it's cheap. Greece is the conduit into Europe for China via the Belt and Road (OBOR) initiative and this means that China will spend in Greece buying increasing amounts of both commercial and ultimately (wait and see) political influence.
AUSSIE HOUSING
The lucky country has some of the highest debt to income levels in the world. Aside from historically low interest rates, the mania has also been bolstered by significant foreign buying (China), now curbed by law, and historically low interest rates. These are now swiftly changing... watch LIBOR, and banks are massively leveraged to real estate.
BITCOIN
In a world as indebted as we have, where the risk to loss of faith in currency is higher than most realise Bitcoin provides asymmetrical upside as well as what has become THE most secure digital ledger. For a small portion of ones portfolio it provides a hedge quite unlike any other. We've been officially recommending since 2014.
