Great -- the CTO (%expletive) it interesting because -- longer term investors yet you say.
Look at risk it's almost more important than looking for growth and yield tell me what you mean by that.
Look when I first started in the industry and 22 years ago.
I grew up in in an industry in Boston that talked about.
Protecting the principal never touching the principal and over the last 25 years it's seen the definition was -- -- wanna -- upside.
And people forgot about risk and they forgot about understanding volatility.
And it we've now today back to making that the foundation of anybody's portfolio understanding the risk that you portfolio.
-- and then understanding what type of volatility you can live with.
And then building a portfolio we exact criteria as you number one goal.
And one of the things we've seen is people rushing in to what they've seen with that old style of investing and that is let me look at a safe haven.

Is this haven concept at -- Well I think very near zero money in the backyard -- in this -- have -- -- a tough way to go but it seems that for some of the people headed.
Recently -- look at the 6040 split.
The old traditional diversification asset allocation that's gone it's gone the way of the dinosaur and it's going to be that way for good.
And then there's nothing wrong with that it just means people have to understand how the markets changed.

Evolving beaten up in fact non bank financials have been really tossed out with the bath war water.
So there is some good asset classes here -- some good equities -- it just means you have to look at the longer term to get through those cycles.
Bonds bonds -- -- you know.
On opportunity we don't believe in government balance sheets right now so we're recommending in what I'm talking to people about you still need yield he still -- com.
He still need to look at.
Investing in bonds.
The difficulty is rates throughout the historical lows so you need to hedge and build a portfolio that helps you hedge against interest rate sensitivity.
Finally on cash cash is a great defense if investment but when you tie in yield -- inflation's -- negative rate of return right now.
That's were alternatives come in hedged equity strategies looked at hedge fixed income out first -- restraining.
Yup you got -- and you have to look at those -- you look at Gateway investments which does.
