About Us

Fairfax Global Markets focuses on helping thoughtful investors reach their financial goals and objectives. We currently manage investments for individuals and private institutions throughout the United States.

Fairfax Global believes that most investors in the United States have unfortunately created investment portfolios that only do well when the stock market is rising.

A major reason so many people lost money in 2000-2002 and again in 2008-2009 was investors built investment portfolios too dependent on only rising markets.

Even today, many financial planners continue to set up client investment strategies that do well only when stocks and bonds are rising. This “mindset” among most financial planners and advisers has created havoc in many people’s investment portfolios over the past two decades.

When investors were hit with losses after the stock market declines in 2000-2002 and 2008-2009, many investors pulled their money out of the stock market and corporate bonds and went to cash right when the stock markets started to recover—only to suffer again as times changed.

 

Fairfax Global Market's Risk Managed Investment Strategies

Fairfax Global Markets’ Tactical Risk Managed Investment Strategies are “all weather” conservative strategies designed to (1) stay fully invested in the stock market during the good times of a Bull Market, and (2) to completely exit the equity markets in the bad times of a Recession/Bear Market and only invest in cash, money market funds, U.S. treasury bonds, gold and other defensive investments during long-term bear market/recessions.

Fairfax Global believes that risk management and the protection of capital from major declines in the stock market like in 2000 to 2002 and again in 2008 and 2009 are its primary goals. Fairfax Global understands that all investors have the same investment objective—to make money on their investments and not to sustain any significant losses in the process.

In addition to a track record of strong investment performance and a rigorous risk management process, personal client service sets Fairfax Global apart from other investment management firms.


MESSAGE

The best money an investor will ever make in the stock market is the money they don't lose in a bear market/recession!
