GLOBAL INTEREST RATES ASSET MANAGEMENT

Outstanding Returns - Minimal Risk - Total Security


Global Interest Rates Asset Management is the most highly acclaimed asset manager specialising in the international sovereign bond and interest rate markets. Run through our affiliate in the United States, Global Interest Rates LLC, it has delivered stellar performances every year since it was established in 2006, achieving a return of 24.4% in 2010, 27.4% in 2011, 40.9% in 2012, and a 53.9% return in 2013.


Global Interest Rates Asset Management has eschewed the massive risks inherent in asset classes such as equities and commodities, concentrating instead on the low risk world of high grade sovereign bonds and interest rates. It has thereby spectacularly outperformed its peers during the worst economic crisis since the 30s: shunning risk and thus avoiding financial meltdown. Run by some of the most experienced and capable people in the space, Global Interest Rates Asset Management delivers where others merely struggle.


And not only does Global Interest Rates Asset Management give you access to very low risk alternatives to conventional equity and commodity investing, it allows you complete control of your funds and complete transparency. Your funds are held in accounts opened in your name with one of the largest and most highly respected brokerage companies in the world, in what are called Separately Managed Investment Accounts. Only you have access to your funds. You're not giving control of any of your money to Global Interest Rates Asset Management: instead, you're putting your money in your own brokerage accounts and giving Global Interest Rates Asset Management only limited powers to operate those accounts on your behalf; and that arrangement can be terminated at any time of your choosing.


You can check the status of the funds in your accounts online at any time and withdraw the funds whenever you want. Global Interest Rates Asset Management strives to provide you with every level of security and confidence, so that you know that your assets are safe. Quite an advantage, in light of some of the recent high profile scandals to hit the asset management industry.


Global Interest Rates Asset Management has developed a full online presentation. It takes about an hour, and will explain to you, in clear, concise and easily comprehensible terms, how Global Interest Rates Asset Management operates, how safe your assets are, and how you stand to benefit by opening Separately Managed Investment Accounts through Global Interest Rates Asset Management.


The presentation demonstrates that you can expect to enjoy exceptional returns on your assets, without taking the wholly unacceptable risks associated with investment in equities, commodities and currencies: avoiding those asset classes altogether and, instead, opening Separately Managed Investment Accounts through Global Interest Rates Asset Management. The one hour presentation provides a full comparison of the equity, commodity and currency markets and shows just how much risk you take when you surrender control of your assets to those asset classes. The presentation is free of charge, without commitment, and we won't engage in any kind of hard sell.
