David Collum has again conducted a comprehensive, insightful and frequently witty review of the year past. Collum is a professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University.
In addition to his academic interests, he authors an annual review of the financial, economic and geopolitical year. The review is a must read and includes interesting information about the astute academic’s investment strategy and indeed the breakdown of his investment portfolio:
Precious little of my portfolio changes most years. I began 2015 with the distribution shown below. Owing to downward adjustments in energy and metals prices and upward adjustments of putting savings back into those asset classes, my percent allocations remain about the same.
Cash equiv (short term): 60%
Precious metals etc.: 21%
Standard equities: 9%
