Dr Andreas Beck is portfolio manager of Global Portfolio One
and author of the book "Erfolgreich wissenschaftlich investieren" (successful scientific investing). According to his approach, there are ultra-stable equity portfolios that need not fear any crisis, whether economic crisis, war or pandemic.
The long-term returns of the global economy average 6-8% per year
over 10, 20 or 50 years. With wise investment in the world economy and broad diversification in the "world company", not only can the failure of the capital be prevented, it is also highly likely that the return of 6-8% per year for long-term investments
will be achieved. And why should crises not be feared with this approach?
Because the world economy continues to run. In a crisis, such as the Corona pandemic, some companies go bankrupt, others profit. A crisis also always offers opportunities for new companies and business models. With a broad investment in the global economy, individual companies do not play a role. Crises are inevitable in the long term. In this approach, however, they do not matter.
