Gann Managements Investment Approach
Don't focus on making money; Focus on protecting what you have …… Play great defence, Not great offence …. The the profits will follow’ ‘PAUL TUDOR JONES ‘
Our general management philosophy concentrates firstly on defense and only go on the offensive when risks are low, generally after shake-outs or significant breakouts. We are one of the few advisers who cover all world markets on a weekly basis to ensure that our clients are unaffected by unexpected events which often result in serious meltdowns. We are also aware that markets in general only move 15% of the time which points to a cash stance often being necessary. We disapprove of asset allocation management where large cash holdings are conspicuous by their absence. This belief is influenced by our experiences in the 1972/1975 bear market where every investment area suffered. Consequently we do not allow any holdings to fall unduly but liquidate positions early in their demise.
Over the decades we have been extremely successful by cutting out unnecessary risk and when appropriate reverting into a 100% cash position.
We allow the market to dictate where we should be and attempt at all times not to tell the market where it should be. We are quite prepared to abandon quickly any positions held when our price and time stop losses so pronounce. We endeavor to limit any losses on ungeared portfolios to 1% of the total portfolio value on any individual losing trade. This would not be the case where high risk portfolios are geared; minimum losses being limited to 1% times the amount of gearing. Exit points for areas with low volatility such as gilts, currencies etc would be subject to much tighter exit points. Where humanly possible we attempt to invest identical amounts in all our trades. However, we often have to stretch this rule when taking into account the size of the funds under management.
When lack of liquidity exists this could affect our ability to extract ourselves from positions in danger this often dictating that the amounts invested being below the norm.
We do not use set asset allocation practices where it is assumed that by spreading investments, risks are automatically reduced. Our experience is that in times of panic all investments often collapse at the same time. Spreading does not necessarily ensure safety.
We are fully aware that moving high volume has at times inherent difficulties and necessitates closing positions when the market allows you to get out rather than when you want to get out.
We are mindful of Lord Rothschild’s reply to a question on how he achieved his success was ‘By selling far too early’ In consequence, investors should be fully aware that we could under perform the market at their peaks as we would expect to have withdrawn before tops to ensure that there are still buyers around before any serious fall.
In order to achieve a great defense it is our policy to daily check that all our positions are secure. This is achieved by assuming our open positions were a mistake and then assuring ourselves that this is not the case. This ensures that losses are not allowed to get out of hand and that profits are not eroded unnecessarily. We follow rock hard disciplines in order to achieve high returns when allowable by the markets without taking undue risks. When risk is considered unacceptable we are happy to revert to highly liquid positions and wait for the next opportunity.
