Tracking Dr. Marc Faber of The Gloom Boom and Doom report , Marc Faber nicknamed Doctor Doom , a world class investor and a regular speaker at various investment seminars, Dr Marc Faber is well known for his "contrarian" investment approach.
As an asset allocation I have 25 per cent each in precious metals, equities, real estate, and bonds and cash. This may not be the best of allocation. But it’s a disciplined approach. Today no one can tell where the world will go in the next three to five years. But with such asset allocation I am sure that in terms of purchasing parity I will be better [off]. I have been investing in precious metals. In fact, whenever there is a sell-off I had added them in my portfolio. Among equities, my investment in the US is near to nothing, though recently I have added some oil shares. My largest exposure is in Asia with investments in Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and China. Six to nine months back I invested in China when valuations were really low and attractive. In 2012, I had invested in European shares. Some of my bond investments are in Latin America.
