Read the excerpt below about managed multi currency accounts to see a very interesting multi currency investment fact.

This excerpt is from the update of my report “Borrow Low-Deposit High” and it highlights an important facet of global investing that can help you increase your safety and profit at the same time.

Here are the facts.


I have been offering Borrow Low-Deposit High and it is now complete.  Merri just has to format and edit… then it will be available at the regular price of $79.  See more about the current $49 price  later.

First… here is the excerpt.

Managed Accounts

Jyske Global Investment Management (JGAM) manages MultiCurrency Sandwiches for US investors… choosing the amount of leverage and which investments should be in the portfolios.

Thomas Fischer Senior VP at JGAM recently sent me this note (March 2010).

“Hi Gary, We increased the leverage for all our leveraged portfolios last month. 1x leverage was increased from 0.70 to 0.85 and 2x leverage from 1.40 to 1.70”

Here are examples of their portfolio (early 2010).

Portfolios under $200,000 are invested in mutual funds to provide adequate diversification.

The portfolios performed very well since the beginning of  2009.  Look at the portfolio stats above again.

The performance shows very interesting fact.

The low risk portfolio with leverage is the best performing portfolio, up 33.4% in just over three months!  In 2009 the low risk with leverage was the best performing portfolio as well.   This approach lowered risk… lowered volatility and increased profit.

My report “Borrow Low-Deposit High” covers this fact and what investors can do to profit from it in detail. 

This is the last week to order “Borrow Low-Deposit High – How to Use the Multi Currency Investment Sandwich” before the 2010 update is complete and the price rises to $79… click here to get this emailed report for only $49.


P.S. Sadly at a time when American investors need more multi currency investments and a better global view, overseas banks are increasingly restricted from helping US investors.  Anti tax evasion, money laundering and anti terrorism regulations have created so many regulations on banks that increasing numbers of overseas banks have stopped accepting US investors.

Yet at this crucial time when the US dollar has great fundamental weakness, US banks have little experience in helping its clients invest in other currencies.

This is why Jyske Bank’s upcoming April 2010 Forex Seminar in California may be helpful to you.  I’ll be reviewing “Borrow Low Deposit High” tactic in detail.


I really enjoy speaking at these courses and learn a lot myself from the other speakers.  Here I am at the question and asnwer session at Jyske’s course last year.

Fortunately for me and readers,  Jyske Bank in April 2008 set up Jyske Global Asset management as an Asset Management Company servicing US clients.

They conduct one seminar a year in the US.  Here are delegates at last year’s seminar.


talking among themselves during the coffee breaks and at meals.


One benefit of these seminars is meeting with other delegates.  Plus you get a  chance to talk with very knowledgeable overseas bankers.  Here I am at the seminar with my Jyske account executive, Anders Nielsen.  An American and a Dane…great combination!


In April 2010 JGAM will conduct its US  Foreign Exchange seminar in Laguna Beach, California.

I’ll speak extensively and focus on this multi currency sandwich.  Click here for the seminar Program
