Good day for investors in yesterday's videos. We discussed how the stock market is in a bubble and how one of the best approaches for a passive investor is to have an all where their portfolio ends. As promised today we're going to discuss what is an all weather portfolio how you can think about building one. What are the key components and what are the key things to look at when doing such an all weather portfolio. The key within all whether it is that it is prepared for whatever can happen. So in the 40 years that retailers or whether portfolio has been back tested it had it had only six negative years. And the average downturn in those negative years was about 2 percent in 2008 all way there their portfolio from radio lost to just 3 percent while the stock market was down 40 something percent. However it's a careful balance between risk and you have to constantly rebalance that portfolio every six months or once a year. However you feel it's better for you. Let's start digging into it. I will not give you the exact portfolio locations because that is personal and that depends on what you own watch on otherwise. So that's something you really have to sit down and look at individual positions you have. What is the risk there and how that's real risk balances in an all way their portfolio.

And this gives you the extra additional return on those 4 to 7 percent that are calculated from a historical average and then you reach 7 8 9 10 percent. And the most important thing you do it with less volatility less risk because your portfolio goes up slowly while the other stock markets might go out might go down the environment might change. Interest rates might increase for the next 10 20 years and then stocks and other assets would do very very bad. But you would do good because you were let's say in an old weather portfolio.
