"Beat Warren Buffet with these Automated ETF Strategies"


A Robo Advisor for Expats and International Globetrotters

Buffet, known as "The Oracle of Omaha" is a wise sage. He is known worldwide as one of the best stock pickers of all time. He based his stock picks around Benjamin Graham's "value investing" which basically means picking up stocks which are undervalued.

But, even Warren Buffet admits that stock picking is risky, requires a lot of research and often Warren Buffet visits the company he invests in. He has even recommended his wife and children to invest their inheritance into index funds.

Here is a quote from his annual newsletter on Feb. 28th, 2017:

"My advice to the trustee couldn't be more simple: Put 10% of the cash in short-term government bonds and 90% in a very low-cost S&P 500index fund. (I suggest Vanguard's.) I believe the trust's long-term results from this policy will be superior to those attained by most investors — whether pension funds, institutions or individuals — who employ high-fee managers."

What are Index Funds?

Index funds were invented by Jack Bogle. Jack is the founder and retired chief executive of The Vanguard Group who run Vanguard Mutual Funds as well as Vanguard ETFs which have $4 trillion dollars under management.

In 1975, influenced by the works of Eugene FamaBurton Malkiel and Paul Samuelson, Bogle founded the Vanguard 500 Index Fund as the first index mutual fund available to the general public.

Warren Buffet calls him a "hero"

"If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle"

He continues...

"For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. In his crusade, he amassed only a tiny percentage of the wealth that has typically flowed to managers who have promised their investors large rewards while delivering them nothing – or, as in our bet,lessthan nothing – of added value.

"In his early years, Jack was frequently mocked by the investment-management industry. Today, however, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he helped millions of investors realize far better returns on their savings than they otherwise would have earned. He is a hero to them and to me."

What Has This Got to Do With the Money Pouch?

Well, we are not trying to reinvent the wheel, we are just building on the work of Buffet, Bogle, modern portfolio theory techniques and adding smart algorithms for efficient stock trading.

Exchange Traded Funds or ETFs are a cheap, low-cost way to invest in index funds. Click here to learn "What are Exchange Traded Funds".

The Money Pouch builds on Buffet and Bogle's work, by investing in low-cost ETFs and rebalancing them frequently to keep the risk to return more consistent. This should offer your investment portfolio more protection when stock markets fall by reallocating your portfolio to bonds or cash.

We often use low-cost Vanguard ETFs in our portfolio to reduce fees, but ETF selection is based on what may achieve the best outcome. We use asset class selection, diversification, dual momentum strategies and employ algorithmic trading techniques to ensure best execution. No need to look at complicated technical analysis or stare at stock charts. All the asset selection, diversification and algorithmic trading is done for you on auto pilot.


"The Money Pouch uses Jack Bogle's passive investments using index trackers and Warren Buffett's value investing to pick the optimal stock/bond portfolio using low-cost ETFs. This is then traded automatically on your behalf"

Great, but how is The Money Pouch targeting higher returns than other roboadvisers?

"The Money Pouch uses "soft leverage" to control risk and target higher returns"

Our portfolios are leveraged at up to 1.6 times the amount invested by using a Margin Account. No more than 40% of your capital is risked at any time. Learn more here about leverage and margin accounts at the bottom of the FAQs page. Our conservative strategy is not leveraged. 

In this way, we can control risk, whilst target higher returns. It isn't rocket science and we aren't reinventing the wheel, but it should improve performance and beat the S&P500 index over the long run.

In this way, we should be able to consistently outperform the stock market over multi-year periods.

"The Money Pouch invests in real income producing companies such as Coca-Cola, Apple, Google and Microsoft. It isn't a reckless gamble on Forex or commodity robots"
