Great article written on how the Endowments are successfully outperforming benchmarks and other institutional investors. The article is a simple and direct as the solution. Plain to see that allocations to Alts make a large difference. Again, not at 5 or 10%, but these super-endowments like Yale and Harvard run from 50-70%.

Attain has a great piece the reminds investors of all types about why they are, or should be diversifying into non-correlated alternatives like CTA. The analogy they use is paying insurance premiums. It doesn’t always feel great, but it is the responsible thing to do and in general one is foolish not to do it.

This years World of Wheels had the Battle of Technicians race again. The race was started in 2011 by our friend Zane Southgate at Zeebs Restorations. This is a great opportunity for the students as well as for the audience to see mechanical talent in hyper speed! Don’t think your auto work will happen this fast. Article by Greg Willams here.
Another great educational piece from our friends at Direxion Funds. Nothing could be more true – we need to add diversification to a portfolio while things are good. There is no use putting insurance on a car after the accident.
