Investors who survived the 2008 credit crisis learned many lessons, but the most important was that traditional asset allocation did not provide enough diversification. In times of market stress, stocks and bonds can become more highly correlated and can move down together. Commodity investments, however offer the potential to profit when markets are down and offer assets not correlated to stocks and bonds, helping provide the diversification investors need. Hear from Bob Greer, dubbed by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange as "the godfather of commodity investing." Bob will present a high level discussion of why commodities are a necessary component of portfolio construction; diversification; liquidity and valuation.
