One of the primary goals of financial planners is to create well-diversified portfolios. And the objective of a diversified portfolio is to create an extremely low chance of seeing a major loss of wealth. In technical terms, this is accomplished through investing in assets that have low correlations with each other’s price movements. This means that when one asset class experiences a sharp downturn, it has been historically unlikely that another asset class will move in lockstep with it.
Bonds and equities have traditionally been decoupled
This is one of the fundamental reasons that so many investment professionals recommend having a nice mix of both bonds and equities in any investment portfolio. These two asset classes have historically been relatively decouple from each other. When one moves sharply up or down, there is a low probability that the other will move in lockstep with it.
But Shervin Pishevar, one of the leading venture capitalists in the tech space, has been warning his Twitter followers that these two asset classes may be experiencing a much tighter-wound relationship than has historically been the case. And this is exclusively due to the manipulations of the free market by the Federal Reserve.
Shervin Pishevar explains that the extremely low bond yields that have become the norm over the last few years have been the direct result of the Fed keeping bond prices high through its purchase of Treasury securities by the trillions. But he says that this is a completely artificial price signal. He also points out that the incredibly low interest rates that have prevailed have allowed for massive speculation in the equities markets. And this all points in one direction.
As interest rates and bond yields increase, says Shervin Pishevar, the stock market is poised to crash. But this time, the interest rates may keep going through the roof, even as more and more people seek refuge in bonds. This, says Shervin Pishevar, may continue due to future heavy dollar inflation caused by those same Fed policies. In the end, both bond investors and stock investors could end up losing huge.

David Giertz is a registered broker with 31 years experience and is currently the president of Nationwide’s Financial and Investments Organization.
In June of 2014 he sat down with Wall Street Journal Columnist Veronica Dagher, who is also the paper’s Wealth Adviser.
Nationwide’s Financial Retirement Institutes did a survey with retirees and people 10 years away from retirement, Giertz explained in the interview with Dagher.
Most advisers are simply not talking to their clients about social security, which is a very important part of the retirement planning process. Advisers may be putting more thought into other retirements funds such as 401k and completely neglecting other options. Additional data from the survey shows that 4 out of 5 people would consider switching advisers if they didn’t keep them informed on issues involving social security income. David Giertz encourages all advisers to devout more time to discussing social security with their clients.
“I think its a very complex topic,” Giertz explained, “the handbook is over 27,000 pages.” Giertz urged all advisers to discuss social security with their clients no matter how daunting it may be. “Clients will move on” Giertz warned.
It is not just financial advisers who may be in trouble, the consumer is in even more danger. David Giertz explained that if you start your social security too early you will lose out on thousands of dollars.
“When you think about a retirement planning process[…]social security could be up to 40% of that.”David Giertz both stressed the importance of clients finding a financial adviser that will do his best to work with you and the importance of advisers everywhere to begin discussing social security with their clients as soon as possible. Giertz went on to explain that you could lose out on a thousands dollars a month if you start your social security too early, further expressing the importance of having a financial adviser willing to discuss with you all of the options available.
According to Tarcisio Gomes de Freitas, Investment Partnership Program (PPI) project coordination secretary, the government is planning to conduct 18 infrastructure auctions by the last four months of the year. Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure projects experts, says that the secretary in June gave an assurance that the schedule would not be modified regardless of the current political discussions the Brazilian Government is going through.
Freitas said that the auctions would start in September 2017, and will work simultaneously with the discussions held in Congress. He continued to say that the PPI is ready for criticism from the private sector due to the large contractors being hit by the Lava Jato denunciation. Felipe Jens points out that the program targets the participation of new players in the concession.
Tarcisio Gomes de Freitas notes that the main challenge in Brazil that deters the increase of productivity lies in the expansion and modernization of the infrastructure sector. He advises that Brazil need to break away from the vicious cycle that reduces unemployment by driving away investors. He emphasized the importance of building on projects serves as the major advantage for the Investments Partnership Programs.
In the auction of transmission lines that happened in April, they created a hub attached to the ministries focusing on selecting projects that are succeeding and are attractive to the private sector. Felipe says that the auction was one of the largest in history.
PPI focuses on correcting the past mistakes committed by the Public-Private Partnerships due to State over-intervention that resulted in the imbalance of project risk. Freitas when asked on whether the past errors by PPP in the recent years had any influences the foreign investor’s decisions he cited the presence of international investors in the airport concessions held in March.
The presence of foreign investors was an indication to the investors that the government had dropped the anti-business line and proceeded to the pro-business line with the president Michel Temer.
Felipe Jens reports that the rise to the presidency of Michel Temer in August 2016 saw PPI held 44 auctions in the infrastructure area. This translated to the capturing of R $23 billion of investment during his first year of administration.
The manufacturing of rail tanks and cars can be considered by many to be a niche industry. A large one to be sure, as this is a multi million dollar industry, but one that not a lot of people hear about or take notice of. Gregory J. Aziz, chairman and CEO of National Steel Car of Ontario knows this very well and is quite alright with the anonymity that his business enjoys. Having a low-key public presence may seem counter-productive to some, but it does have its advantages.
This allows more focus to be put on the day to day operations of the company, such as growth in all sectors of the business and ensuring that a quality product is always produced. Since there is not a lot of competition in this field, quality and craftsmanship are always on top of the priority list that Greg Aziz has to keep his eye on. Renewing and acquiring production contracts means having a name in the business that speaks to the longevity, integrity, and quality that a business carries with it.
Gregory James Aziz can bring all of that and more to the table, with his reputation doing the speaking for him. He is well known in the business community as being driven in business, and charitable in person. He is also known for helping the business of National Steel Car grow substantially in the years directly following his acquisition of the company. It grew by leaps and bounds in the first few years of him at the helm and continues to maintain that growth currently. This is also good for the local economy as it has helped boost the workforce.
So even though this may be a niche industry, there is a lot that can be learned from how this particular business is run. How to grow a company and maintain that growth is one lesson. How to ensure and maintain quality during and after a period of growth is another. All told, if you are in the transportation industry then this is a CEO and company worth keeping on your radar.
