The Gowdie Letter

There comes a time in your life when defending your wealth takes priority over making money.

When you’re young, you have less to lose and more time to make any losses back. As you grow older, the scales tip the other way. You have much more to lose and much less time in the market. Your tolerance for taking risks with your money is not what it used to be. There’s more at stake now.

The longer this market lives up to its record-breaking billing, the stronger and more entrenched the belief in its invincibility becomes.

Ironically, this belief is the market’s Achilles heel. Stability creates instability. The greater the number who buy into the belief of record-breaking markets representing stability, the more unstable the system becomes.

The stakes are high because the financial freedom you’ve strived to achieve is not something you can afford to squander. You no longer have the luxury of waiting a decade or two for markets to win back your gains.

But defending your wealth is not without its challenges, especially when those around you seem to be making hay on whatever the fad investment of the moment is.

Vern Gowdie’s mission in The Gowdie Letter is to help you meet those challenges.

Most people in or approaching retirement (unless they have tens of millions of dollars) cannot afford to lose 30, 50 or 60% of their capital without it having a material effect on their lives.

We know the next market downturn is coming. We do not know when and how severe it will be. We also don’t know how long the recovery process will be.

But Vern says history provides all the answers we need.

And as he tells subscribers of The Gowdie Letter, each and every month, it’s far better to be wise BEFORE the unanticipated shock…than it is to gain wisdom AFTER the event.

So, who is The Gowdie Letter for?

The Gowdie Letter is not for you if you’re looking to trade the market. It’s not for you if you believe we’re in a ‘new paradigm’. And it’s not for you if you’re seeking the next ‘hot’ market.

The Gowdie Letter IS for you if you want to protect and (when the market cycle permits) advance your financial position in a prudent and considered manner.

The information and knowledge Vern shares with readers also informs the decisions he makes with his own family’s wealth.

Unlike many in the industry, Vern has real skin in the game. He knows and appreciates how hard it is to acquire the wealth you need to feel financially comfortable.

He also knows how easy it is to lose those dollars. Markets can destroy years (even decades) of savings so quickly. And the root cause of this destruction is, more often than not, central bank policy.

Placing your financial fate in the hands of central banks is, in Vern’s opinion, a grave error of judgement.

The previous two bubbles ended with investors nursing significant losses. Believing this one will not go the same way is putting hope before experience.

Vern’s aim with The Gowdie Letter is to first equip you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions on how best to defend your hard-won wealth.

And secondly, how to capitalise on a market that — in due course — will present us with a lower-risk and higher-reward proposition.
