    Don't become a casualty of Currency Wars!  Whether you know it or not, your portfolio may be in danger. Currency wars play out at the heart of investors' portfolios with risks to U.S. and international investments. What is happening with the U.S. dollar, the Euro, Yen and gold and how do they impact your portfolio? Axel Merk, the Authority on Currencies™, will discuss the current macroeconomic forces driving currency wars and how investors may potentially profit from them. 

    Axel Merk is the President and Chief Investment Officer of Merk Investments, manager of the Merk Funds. He is a recognized expert on the global economy, monetary policy and international investing.  An authority on currencies, he is a pioneer in the use of strategic currency investing to seek diversification and has been named a “Currency Guru” by Morningstar.  

    Axel Merk is a regular guest on CNBC, FoxBusiness and Bloomberg.  His columns and interviews frequently appear in the Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and other financial media around the world.  Merk is a sought after expert speaker at industry conferences, including the annual conferences of the CFA, FPA and AAII, as well as at universities, government organizations and think tanks.  Merk's expertise encompasses topics ranging from the global economy, gold and currencies to sustainable wealth and personal finance. Axel Merk’s Book “Sustainable Wealth” was published by Wiley in 2009 and his newsletter Merk Insights reaches a wide audience of investors, analysts and media following global macroeconomic issues and implications to investing.

    Mr. Merk, together with the Merk portfolio team, manages the Merk Hard, Asian and Absolute Return Currency Funds, as well as the Merk Currency Enhanced U.S. Equity Fund.  He holds a B.A. in Economics (magna cum laude) and a M.Sc. in Computer Science from Brown University.
