Blackstone Commodity Group has been involved in commodities and other alternative investments for a significant period of time. The leadership of the company has more than 10 years of experience trading the global markets. During which time we have been fortunate enough to experience many investment climates and cycles. We have witnessed and taken part in the great oil bull market that took crude oil to above $140 a barrel in 2008 and then the subsequent plunge in oil prices. We have gone through the impressive bull market in gold and silver from 2009-2011and its correction in price, and also witnessed the harrowing crash in the stock market in 2008.
This diverse market experience has allowed us to help clients gain the proper perspective of market cycles and navigate them on how they can protect their assets and prepare for significant opportunities during the major turning points in the markets.
A diversified portfolio will tend to protect you during times of cyclical change because you will have a balance of assets that will react differently during these cycles.
However at Blackstone Commodity Group, we don’t believe in the archaic way of diversifying a portfolio. The conventional way of investing changed forever in 2008. In today’s investment climate you should be more nimble and alert with how you manage your portfolio.
