He is widely quoted and interviewed by the financial media for his views on global investment strategy and ETF trends.

“Our approach seeks to add diversity and differentiation to the typical core holdings of Canadian investors, primarily through exposure to non-traditional sources of market-beating returns identified through our macro asset allocation strategy.”
Tyler’s top-down approach is global in scope and focuses on identifying long-term macro trends. He invests across a broad universe of asset classes and regions, including hard assets, global real estate and currencies. Using an active approach to asset allocation, Tyler seeks to buy risk assets when they are cheap, and sell them when they become expensive. He efficiently executes his asset allocation decisions using exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
