GIS 360 Q2 2016: Time to Reset

by HighTower on June 29, 2016

This edition of GIS 360 explores the potential for a global “reset.” We have asked two of the best to guide us with their thinking on the matter, including the potential impact on markets and investing:

  1. Charles Gave, Founding Partner & Chairman of GaveKal Research, describes a world that has never been simple, but demands to “abandon all stupid practices with a need to return to market prices.”
  1. W. Ben Hunt, PhD, Chief Risk Officer of Salient Partners, suggests that debt-based balance sheet expansion will pull forward “every last drop of organic growth for the next decade or two,” ultimately preventing a decline in assets.

At HighTower, we do not seek value on the basis of one single opinion, as is more common with traditional Wall Street firms, but instead continue to exchange best ideas and carefully select our economic advisors and research partners.
