Whilst rigorous analysis of the interconnection of global monetary and fiscal policy, technology, demographics and geopolitics is the cornerstone of our strategic thought process, we also appreciate the constraints of investing in public markets. It is simply not enough to be eventually correct. You have to be timely and protect yourself from the inherent gyration of asset markets. Hence, we strive to integrate our long-term thematic with a dynamic tactical overlay.
Our insights come from two sources. Firstly, our proprietary research that is the result of a process that has been honed, not only over the last seven years at View from the Peak but by Paul and his team’s investment experience over the past two decades. Secondly, is the View from the Peak Expert Series, a collection of interviews with the world’s leading think tank fellows, former policy makers, diplomats and academics across a variety of global topics. They include subjects as varied as technology trends to emerging market elections, digital regulation to the future of productivity. The Expert Series delivers the breadth of coverage that few research firms can achieve.View from the Peak strives to be an integral part of your investment process by focusing on investment opportunities that are actionable.
