     This conference call will discuss:

    • Relationships and correlations among the four primary asset class categories;
    • polar opposite pairs of asset classes and the inverse correlation between the members of each pair;
    • how the mixing of polar opposite assets within a portfolio produces especially low volatility with little or no sacrifice of average return;
    • how a mix of all four primary asset classes produce “permanent portfolios” with unusually high Sharpe ratios.
