Skin in the game
Since I left the investment fund industry a decade ago, I no longer advise any strategy in which I don’t believe and put my own money in it. Therefore I manage my wealth and that of my family according to this Austrian Strategy I offer through my Newsletter.
For the long run
Investing is not a sprint, is a marathon
Neither myself nor the proposed strategy in the Newsletter intends to get fast and ephemeral clients promising unrealistic quick profits. Any investment strategy needs a sufficient period of execution time in order to converge to its statistical results. I hope the subscriber will understand and appreciate that the Austrian Investor Newsletter is a prudent and profitable path to build his wealth over time.
Keeping Things Simple
The market does not care how sophisticated and smart your strategy looks.
The Austrian Strategy is very easy to implement and follow, so many will consider that it is not worth paying for it.
A couple of words about that: First, achieving the simplicity of the Austrian Strategy is the result of having traveled oceans of complexity for more than a decade, being wrong many times; until finally eliminating everything that does not add value when investing —the via negative applied to investing. As Leonardo da Vinci put briefly:
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
Secondly, I believe that every sensible investor is more interested in the effectiveness and soundness of their investment strategy, rather than in how sophisticated and fancy it looks. Choosing a strategy for how sophisticated it looks would be to fall into the fallacy and common mistake of confusing complexity with effectiveness.
The transparency and clarity of the Austrian Strategy investment process —in just 3 steps 1, 2 and 3— brings value to the investor by avoiding unrealistic expectations, marketing tricks, and hidden agendas. Transparency also implies that I am not trying to hide anything. What is best for my own investments will also be better for the Newsletter subscriber, and I will openly explain it. I believe that making my expertise and know-how accessible to everyone has a positive impact in several ways.
As no one likes to be tricked, transparency and honesty lead to increased loyalty. In the long term, being transparent and sharing knowledge (not only making it public but explaining, teaching) also levels the field for everyone, which allows for informed, sensible investments decisions.
Last but not least, it is the responsibility of the investor himself to decide whether to fall for the fancy neon-lights of the industry or truly seek the best for his savings. I can show the way and the truths that I have discovered. But the last decision and action will always be from the investor.
