Special Report, based on the BFI Big Picture Review, April 2012
We are witnessing an economic and political period that is best characterized as highly unstable and uncertain. A number of different trends and issues, including such so-called “mega-trends” related to global demographics, climate change or oil peak, certainly warrant due consideration. However, we consider the past decades of “cheap money” and the immense level of public debt as the number one enemy of freedom, wealth and prosperity.
The risks and implications of the ongoing debt crises in some of the major economic regions, namely America, the United Kingdom, Europe and Japan, are severe and imminent enough to deserve our serious attention. Meanwhile, the picture painted by official data and mainstream media is, in general, a very different one. This creates a convoluted mix of information that is confusing at best, treacherous at worst.
In light of current big picture realities, asset protection and wealth preservation should be at the very top of your investment and wealth planning priorities.
It is in this context that, with this research paper, BFI Wealth Management is sharing its thoughts and recommendations, hopeful that it may provide some clarity and guidance for some of the potential challenges ahead, and that you may be able to better formulate and implement your wealth planning and investment strategy as a result.
