Why alternative and non-traditional investments are no longer just for the wealthy
There was a time when asset allocation was simply about diversification. Today, asset allocation is about both preserving wealth and growing returns regardless of market conditions. They're also a must-have for investors large and small. ANTS: Using Alternative and Non-Traditional Investments to Allocate Your Assets in an Uncertain World shows the average investor how to incorporate ANTs into their portfolio in a substantive way.
With the economic crisis and the ever-increasing volatility in the world's financial markets, views on asset allocation have changed. ANTs describes why to incorporate alternative and non-traditional investments into portfolios and details how to easily do it.

Asset allocation is no longer just about diversification, but about preserving wealth and growing profits under any market condition. More importantly, that diversification must move beyond stocks, bonds, and cash. In these volatile, synchronized, and interconnected global markets, one has to look to alternative assets for diversification to protect one's downside risk and get the best possible returns. Unfortunately, most investors still base their fundamental investment decisions on whether they think we are in a "bull" or a "bear" market.
The problem with this simplified and outdated investment strategy is that it just doesn't work anymore. Instead of bulls and bears, says investment strategist Dr. Bob Froehlich, we should be looking at butterflies and ANTs—alternative and non-traditional asset classes. In ANTs, Froehlich introduces them to you and shows you how they can significantly improve your portfolio's returns in a meaningful way.
Just as seemingly insignificant changes can produce wildly dramatic impacts in weather patterns around the globe—the "butterfly effect"—all of the world's stock markets and bonds markets are also connected in the same way. Everything that happens anywhere around the globe will eventually have an impact on all stock and bond markets.ANTs shows how to take advantage of this "new world order" through eight alternative and non-traditional asset classes. From commodities and currency to collectibles and more, Froehlich tells how to use ANTs to create a diversified portfolio that will thrive in today's volatile, interconnected world financial markets.
Perhaps most importantly, the author also explains that if you are going to invest in these alternative and non-traditional asset classes, you must have the help and assistance of a financial advisor. He details why, and then explains what to look for in an advisor and how to choose one. Together, using this book as a guide, you and your financial advisor can customize a plan that will profit in any market.From the Back Cover:
Praise for ANTs
Using Alternative and Non-Traditional Investments to Allocate Your Assets in an Uncertain World
"Finally, recognition by a respected strategist that there's an investment world beyond stocks and bonds. 'Dr. Bob' offers real opportunities to diversify your assets, hedge your dollar bets, and develop an investment portfolio that will withstand the devaluation of paper money."
—Terry Savage, author, The Savage Truth on Money and The Savage Number
"Dr. Bob's latest book is a must-read for every individual investor. ANTs addresses the two most common mistakes of retail investors. Number one, they try to do it alone without the help of a financial advisor and number two, in our interconnected global marketplace, they do not have enough exposure to non-traditional asset classes like commodities and currencies. ANTs shows you how to fix both of these mistakes with a common sense strategy that is purely 'Dr. Bob' at his finest."
—William (Bill) Glavin, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Oppenheimer Funds, Inc.
