USING THE UNDERSTANDING OF CYCLES IN ASSET ALLOCATION
Financial markets do not move at random.
The presentation by Charles will explain the basis of his proprietary two-part system and why cycles predict the future. First part, direction and timing. Second part, generating price targets.
Charles Nenner will show a video from July 2006, when he was a guest at CNBC, that shows that the system he developed can accurately predict moves in any asset class. Charles Nenner's system of market timing highlights the simple fact that we need cycles to successfully invest, since we don't know the news of tomorrow.

GLOBAL MONEY FLOWS AS A LEADING INDICATIOR
Liquidity drives markets. Barely one fifth of Wall Street’s huge gains over recent decades have come from earnings: more liquidity, combined with investors’ appetite for riskier assets have propelled stock prices higher. Similar experiences are shared Worldwide and even in Emerging Markets, such as India, where flat earnings have not deterred waves of domestic mutual fund and foreign money from driving up stock prices. Now with Central Banks again actively pursuing quantitative easing policies and industrial corporations also flush with cash, the liquidity theory of investment has never been more important.
Michael Howell pioneered the concept of Global Liquidity. The research team at CrossBorder Capital regularly monitors liquidity and capital flows across 80 economies Worldwide and advises an international client base of key institutional investors. The investment division of CrossBorder Capital manages over US$1 billion and embeds this liquidity flow data in its systematic models.

RESILIENT DECISION MAKING FOR INVESTEMENT PROFESSIONALS
Was it a business obstacle you did not foresee, office politics that were hard to figure out, or a life-changing incident that left you shell-shocked?
When life hands you a setback, how do you respond? Are you racked by doubt, unable to move—or do you charge ahead, eager for resolution, without much thought?
Between these extremes is another approach built on the principles of resilience. In The Resilient Decision-Maker, Joseph Lampel, Aneesh Banerjee, and Ajay Bhalla show you how to approach challenges in life and business with resilience. This practical guide explains the different types of challenges we all face, examines the various forms resilience can take in the face of these challenges, and offers a guide to resilient leadership backed up by real-world examples. If you want to know your own resilience and how to grow it, you’ll find the answers here.

THE CHANGING GLOBAL ORDER FOR INVESTING
The future is more uncertain than ever before since the end of World War II. The possibilities of Black Swans is rising. A sweeping global survey touching on Brexit and the EU, on the USA beyond Trump, on China and on Energy futures will lead up to reflections on geostrategic challenges and what can be done to minimise exposure to risks and to maximise returns in the long run.

LIQUID ALTERNATIVES: ALTERNATIVE ENOUGH?
Investors are continuously seeking strategies that offer uncorrelated returns, but loathe hedge funds due to high fees. Fortunately, hedge fund strategies have become available as ETFs and liquid alternative mutual funds in recent years. However, it is questionable if these low-cost versions offer the same characteristics as their private brethren and are attractive for diversification, which we will explore in this presentation.
