“The Future of Investing” - A Slideshow

This is the introduction page to a short Web-based slideshow that shows why and how the NAOI is changing the world of investing at a fundamental level. On the following pages (the index is presented below) you will learn that change comes in the form of a new approach to portfolio design and management called Dynamic Investment Theory (DIT). This is the first viable alternative to today’s standard approach called Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) that was introduced in 1952. Markets have change significantly since the 1950’s while MPT has barely changed at all and it can no longer cope with modern, more volatile markets. We saw clear evidence of this during the stock market crash of 2008-2009 when holders of MPT portfolios lost a significant portion of their wealth.

NAOI Dynamic Investments - The Future of Investing

DIT creates a new investment type called Dynamic Investments (DIs) designed to not only “cope” with modern markets but to thrive in them. DIs are “market-sensitive”, designed to periodically sample market data and automatically signal trades needed to take advantage of current market trends. By doing so they are capable of producing significantly higher returns than virtually any MPT-based portfolio for the same time period and with lower risk. On the following pages of this presentation you will learn how DIT and DIs change everything for the better.

Whether you are an individual investor or a financial professional, devoting just a few minutes to reading the pages that follow in this presentation can be among the best investments you will ever make. Changes are coming fast to the investing world and those who learn about them first will benefit the most.
