MARKET CRASHES CAN RUIN EVERYTHING, IF YOU′RE NOT ADAPTIVE

You think your portfolio is diversified, your investment returns will mirror what′s been observed through history, and your retirement is secure.

It may not be.
It probably won′t.
It probably isn′t.

Adaptive Asset Allocation can help. Building on a strong philosophical and research–driven foundation, the book demonstrates how a potent combination of global diversification, risk management, and alternative sources of returns can deliver steady performance regardless of economic and market environment.
