MACROPRUDENTIAL POLICY ADVISORS

"Financial repression is not a conspiracy theory, it is rather a collective set of macroprudential policies focused on controlling and reducing excessive government debt through 4 pillars - negative interest rates, inflation, ring-fencing regulations and obfuscation - to effectively transfer purchasing power from private savings." - The Financial Repression Authority

INFLATION EXPERTS
 

 

 

Incrementum Liechtenstein

Incrementum believes that the inflation momentum currently represents perhaps the most important macroeconomic metric for the financial markets. Therefore Incrementum wants to introduce a new service, that gauges the direction of inflation.On the last page of the playbook it is very likely, that there will be significant price inflation. If that happens, investors who are preparing and for instance are staking silver will most probably be in a good position financially. However, due to the monetary tectonics the volatility of inflation sensitive assets has increased significantly and it is due to become an even bumpier ride. You can ride the waves of the inflationary and deflationary tides. The core tool for that can be this proprietary inflation signal.

The words “alternative investment” are bandied about throughout the financial industry today. What does it really mean?

Alternative investments are generally private (non-market traded) securities, focused in unique markets, asset classes, strategies or sectors. These investments are predicated on unique strategies that may not be available in traditional stock, bonds or mutual funds. These investments can be equity or debt securities. They can be complex, or very simple. They may invest in a variety of assets including: real estate, real assets, private equity (companies), venture capital, commodities, and public companies.
There has been a shift in the last 25 years for institutional and high-net-worth individuals to allocate a growing proportion of their investment assets to alternative investments. Raintree Financial Solutions makes alternative investments available to everyone.

Alternative investments can display the following benefits: 

  • Low correlation to public markets or other investment assets
  • Reduced volatility
  • Preservation of capital & inflation hedging
  • Unique risk-adjusted return profiles
  • Access to new markets
  • Early stage, pre-IPO or high growth opportunities
  • Unique income sources
  • Beneficial tax treatmen

Alternative investments are not for everyone, but they generally compliment most portfolios. Their diversifying benefits can protect downside risk or enhance returns. Sophisticated investors know this. If you would like to learn more about how alternative investments may enhance your portfolios, as well as the associated risks of each investment, please contact an Alternative Investment Advisor.

"People ask if we'll have a 'bail-in' in the United States .. Given ATM limits, foreign wire limits and Federal Reserve exit fees on bond funds, I'd say it's already here." - Jim Rickards

The 4 Pillars of Financial Repression:

1- Inflation
2- Negative Interest Rates
3- Ring Fencing
4- Obfuscation and Mis-information

Financial Repression always means a combination of measures that lead to a notable narrowing of the investment universe for investors. Money is thus channeled into specific directions to create a ‘home bias.

"This manipulation of the yield on government debt is the answer for the government, and socially, it is so much more acceptable than the alternatives. Whatever you think of the history of hyperinflation, austerity, default and deflation, they are socially incredibly disruptive, incredibly socially dangerous, and many of those market-driven events have led to warfare or massive domestic social unrest. I think in the grand scheme of things when the government sits down and decides which avenue to pursue, this avenue of repression .. will always be more socially acceptable than the market-driven events of austerity, hyperinflation, deflation, devaluation." - Russell Napier, CLSA

From the U.S. standpoint, it’s now a case of 'inflate or die,' and much of the world knows this. Thus if the U.S. decides not to default on its massive debts, it will have to resort to hyperinflation. If this happens, the U.S. will single-handedly tear the world monetary system apart. What worries me is that governments will do whatever they have to in order to remain in power. This can result in confiscation of the assets of U.S. citizens .. America's massive debts will ultimately upset the world’s monetary system." - Richard Russell

"There will be future bail-ins [loss of deposits] and other types of confiscation of wealth in the eurozone, without a doubt .. There's no other realistic way forward if politicians continue to fail to deal with the basic indebtedness problem across Europe." - Lars Christensen, the Head of Saxo Bank

“By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and, while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. The sight of this arbitrary rearrangement of riches strikes not only at security, but at confidence in the equity of the existing distribution of wealth.. “..There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”-John Maynard Keynes

The term ‘Financial Repression’ was first employed by McKinnon and Shaw in 1973 and has been rediscovered in the course of the current crisis by Reinhart and Sbrancia in their paper “The Liquidation of Government Debt.”
