Ted Bauman Talks About Why Investors Should Be In Emerging Markets

Ted Bauman is a financial writer. He joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013 and he edits three newsletters. These are Plan B Club, The Bauman Letter, and Alpha Stock Alert. His specialty is investing conservatively in order to safely grow assets. He also writes about how to keep your privacy from big business and government and he writes about international migration. He says he wants to help teach people how to live a sovereign life.

After growing up in the state of Maryland he moved to South Africa. He attended the University of Cape Town which is where he earned his postgraduate degrees in two areas, history and economics. He served in the nonprofit sector for about 25 years where he held various executive positions. He moved back to America when he decided to leave the nonprofit world and Ted Bauman now lives in Georgia along with his family.

Beyond his own financial newsletters, Ted Bauman has written commentary that has appeared in international publications. Among these are Environment and Urbanization, The Journal of Microfinance, and Small Enterprise Development. When he decided to join Banyon Hill Publishing it had been called Sovereign Society at that time. At first he was a part-time editor and before long he was writing on a full-time basis. He says his father, Bob Bauman, was also a financial writer and he enjoys following in his footsteps with similar advice about protecting assets and low-risk investing.

Ted Bauman says that there are currently much better investments out there than the Standard & Poors 500. They outperformed the S&P 500 in 2017 by a huge margin and he expects similar performance in 2018. He said it was some emerging markets that outperformed the S&P 500 by a whopping 70% in 2017.

The particular ETF that he had invested in was the iShares MSCI South Africa ETF which trades as EZA. He says that from personal experience that nation has been very badly managed over the past decade. He correctly foresaw the president being replaced with someone that is a solid reformer. Once that happened the stock market of South Africa surged and since he had gotten in before this he made substantial returns. Overall, he says that emerging markets went up by 37% in 2017 while the S&P 500 made 20% in gains. With the US dollar continuing to decline in value in comparison to other currencies he expects this to continue. Follow: https://twitter.com/Ted_B_Guru
