My goal is to help investors position themselves for the best possible long-term returns in a world of out of control fiscal and monetary policy, by providing actionable investment strategies based on the principles of the Austrian School of Economics.

I’m Max McGuire, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Level III Candidate in the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program. Prior to entering finance, I spent 15 years in public accounting as an auditor, including 10 years operating a solo accounting practice focused exclusively on auditing retirement (i.e. 401(k)) plans.

The strategies I plan to focus on for this website and my related YouTube Channel include: High-ROIC investments, Tail-hedging strategies, precious metals (including precious metal and resource mining stocks), and the Infinite Banking Concept (IBC). IBC is a cash flow management system which complements a roundabout style of Austrian investing.

Unfortunately, many of the financial strategies recommended by well meaning financial advisors are outdated and ill-prepared for the risks posed by today’s markets. Due to the unsustainable nature of the period of bubble-finance we have been in for the last 30 years, what has been successful during this period is not only unlikely to be successful in the future, it is likely to have tragic consequences.

A roundabout Austrian style of investing gives proper respect the risks inherent in the distorted market environment we are in today, it protects and prepares you for its inevitable collapse.
