You are invited to join Eric Roseman CEO of ENR Asset Management and Thomas Fischer in an Asset Allocation conference call at no charge.

A recent Reuter’s article “Ecuador economic miracle meets maturity” (1) says: The question is how Correa keeps it all going. Ecuador’s finances aren’t parlous, but they are not sufficient to continue the Chinese levels of investment spending that have fueled growth. Ecuador last year had a fiscal deficit of 4.7 percent of GDP, according to Standard & Poor’s, a figure that is expected to rise. The country needs to fund that gap somehow.
The trouble is Correa’s past defiance. He has tussled with the World Bank, kicked out the U.S. ambassador, renegotiated oil and mining contracts and defaulted on $3.2 billion of debt during the financial crisis.

This is why you should not keep your savings in Ecuador if you move there.  Wherever you live you need global asset allocation.

My investment adviser, ENR Asset Management, Inc. provides its clients with an annual investment outlook and strategy. This year because we are sponsoring two Multi Currency Asset Allocation seminars with ENR, you are invited to join in at no cost as a Gary Scott reader.

Eric and Thomas Fischer will discuss stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies for 2015 along with our macro outlook.

Eric writes: Although 2014 has been another good year for U.S. stocks, overseas equities have mostly posted losses when measured in dollars. It is our view that a strong American dollar will generate a significant earnings boost for European multinationals at the expense of U.S. large-caps next year. The dollar is also likely to delay the Fed’s tightening as it gains strength and curbs inflation. We are over-weighted in Europe and believe next year will witness a reversal of U.S. market leadership amid high valuation multiples, possibly higher rates and slowing GDP, if oil prices don’t recover to offset shale cash-flow bottlenecks and production cutbacks. In this environment, the Fed won’t be in a hurry to hike interest rates. The European Central Bank, on the other hand, will be forced to become much more assertive as it starts purchasing sovereign bonds as it seeks to influence euro-zone interbank lending and corporate borrowing. The ECB needs to stimulate inflation.
