The three “dirty words” of finance, according to this week’s guest, became a regular part of our vocabulary after the 2008 financial crisis, but how can investors get back to “clean” investing principles?

Seismic Investment Shift

Financial Thought Leader David Rosenberg is predicting a generational investment shift. The influential Chief Economist and Strategist at Toronto-based wealth management firm Gluskin Sheff recently reversed course on his long standing deflation and bullish bond theme. He believes Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s fight against deflation is working and that we are already seeing signs of inflation emerging and the economy strengthening beyond what most on Wall Street expect.  He explains his new call and why investors should be making some proactive changes to their portfolios now.

ClearBridge Aggressive Growth has delivered market and peer beating results over the decades and is now ranked in the top percentiles for the last one, three and five year periods.

The “Mirage” Recovery

Is the financial crisis really over? Are we in danger of another one? In a recent speech, Hank Paulson, the Secretary of the Treasury during the crisis said yes, we are still in danger and that “there are a number of issues that trouble and in some cases flabbergast me.” Our guest this week, Matthew McLennan, is in complete agreement. McLennan, whom we have identified as a Next Generation Great Investor, runs the five-star rated First Eagle Global Fund, which he took over from legendary value investor Jean Marie Eveillard five years ago in the midst of the financial crisis. McLennan calls the widely believed “return to normalcy” that we are experiencing a “Keynesian mirage.”
