Our goal is to help our friends and other investors accumulate
wealth through riding on the back of global capital flows. Over the
last few years many friends and family have lost considerable portions

hedge funds (which were supposed to produce positive returns in both up
and down markets) actually lost money and in some instances
considerable sums more or less at the same time.
