WSC Inflation Proof Retirement Portfolio

The Perfect Inflation Hedge For At Or Near Retirement Investors!

Are you tired of losing money in the market? Are you disappointed with Fund Managers just sticking to the index or just rely on their instinct and not to proven strategies? Are you annoyed with the intransparency, hidden fees, soft dollar agreements etc. of your fund? Would you like to have the same competitive edge as some of the most successful traders and investors on Wall Street? The answer is quite simple. Follow proven strategies!

Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon!

As a result of the global financial crisis, high elevated levels of sovereign debt and extremely expansive monetary policies by all major central banks around the world have led to growing concerns about inflation among the investment community. Since 2008, central banks are keeping interest rates low by providing massive liquidity into their economies, whereas the probability of high inflation rates in the future has increased significantly. Milton Friedman, a well known economist stated once that “Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon.”


Basically, inflation is an increase in prices since there is too much money for too less goods around. However, right now this is not an immediate problem, since the output gap of U.S. has still a lot room for improvements and unemployment remains elevated and therefore the current inflation expectations remain quite low for the time being. Nevertheless, inflation will become a huge issue sooner or later, at the latest when the economy is getting back on track. Moreover, if this is the case, interest rates will rise too and fixed income investors will suffer the most as bond prices will decline and inflation will wipe out all the earned interest and principal. Even Warren Buffet just said recently in an interview that said low interest rates and inflation should dissuade investors from buying bonds and other holdings tied to currencies.

Inflation is the biggest thread for near or at retirement investors!

In addition for conservative investors at or near retirement, inflation can be the biggest thread since at this stage, many of them have converted much of their portfolio into fixed income to protect capital. As a consequence, investors will be in the need of an inflation proof portfolio since a heavy loaded bond portfolio won't be the perfect hedge for such a scenario. So diversifying a portfolio's income stream with investments that are less affected by inflation is the only way how to fight the upcoming inflation threads. Moreover, investors at or near retirement are in the need of a more or less low risk/volatility portfolio that should generate stable returns. In general, there are enough asset classes (Equitiy, Real Estate, Commodities and TIPS Bond) around which should provide a good hedge against an inflationary environment. The main problem with the mentioned asset classes above is the fact that most of them are highly volatile/risky and therefore creating an inflation proof at or near retirement portfolio can be quite challenging!

 

The WSC Inflation Proof Retirement Portfolio: Slaying the inflation dragon!

The WSC Inflation Proof Retirement Portfolio (IPRP) is focused on absolute return by investing in a highly diversified balanced and equity focused portfolio. The main target of the portfolio is to generate enhanced and stable returns above the average inflation rate and to minimize potential losses, even during times when the overall inflation expectations remain quite low. The WSC Inflation Proof Retirement Portfolio is being updated every Saturday, although the weightings of each asset class will only change on a monthly basis.

The WSC Inflation Proof Retirement Portfolio (IPRP) is being constructed by applying the so called Maximum Diversification approach, which we have already reviewed extensively in previous Seeking Alpha articles. In general, the basic idea behind the maximum diversification approach is to construct a portfolio that maximizes the benefits from diversification. In other words, if the overall correlation coefficient of any underlying security increases, the less weighting it will receive, since its diversification benefits are decreasing.

Why The Crowd Has To Lose All The Time!

The markets are an ever and everything discounting mechanism and the product of the behavior of all their participants and, of course, not everybody can win. In order for every market to function, the majority of the participants have to lose. This majority is usually the uninformed and ignorant crowd, who rather relies on hot tips or even sheer luck like a gambler, instead of doing some homework and spending an extra buck for valuable and useful information.
