WealthTrack's Podcast
WealthTrack believes that the key to successful long-term investing is diversification and intelligent asset allocation. Our goal is to help viewers build and protect their wealth and all of the investments they care about: financial, real estate, art, and collectibles.


In this WEALTHTRACK exclusive, veteran international economist and strategist Nick Sargen joins us to examine the significance and impact of the most recent quantitative easing announcement by the European Central Bank and the cumulative effect of the more than 500 easing moves by central banks over the last three years. Sargen is the Chief Economist and Senior Investment Advisor at Fort Washington Investment Advisors, the asset management arm ofWestern & Southern Financial Group, which has close to $50 billion under management.     

The good news is that Americans are living longer and spending more years in retirement than ever before. However, funding retirement is a fast approaching crisis. On this week’s WEALTHTRACK we have an exclusive interview with Financial Thought Leader and legendary investment consultant, Charles Ellis, who tackles America’s greatest domestic financial challenge in a new book, “Falling Short: The Coming Retirement Crisis and What To Do About It”.

We’ll discuss volatility and opportunity in three major emerging markets. Despite the recent sell off in Russia, other oil exporting countries and emerging markets in general, the standard investment view has been that three of the BRICs – China, India and Brazil – are just too big and consequential to be ignored. This week’s guests concur. Kenneth Lowe, Portfolio Manager of the Matthews Asia Focus fund and the Matthews Asian Growth and Income fund, and David Nadel, Director of International Research for Royce & Associates and Portfolio Manager of several funds, including the Royce International Smaller-Companies fund, will discuss the opportunities they are seeing in Brazil, China and India.

A next generation “Great Investor,” First Eagle Global Fund’s Matthew McLennan. First Eagle is known for its value-oriented, margin of safety approach and making preservation of capital its first investment goal. McLennan assumed the role of Portfolio Manager of the First Eagle Global Fund in late 2008 from investment legend, Jean-Marie Eveillard. The now $50 billion plus fund is rated four-star by Morningstar. Over the last five years, with McLennan on board, it is ranked in the top ten percent of its world allocation category. McLennan explains why he is currently finding markets around the world expensive, and why “patience” is his best investment idea.

It isn’t often that a very successful hedge fund manager with a winning strategy closes up shop, but that is exactly what this week’s Great Investor guest did in 1995. It’s equally unusual to get back in the business more than a decade later with a dramatically altered strategy. Joel Greenblatt of the Gotham Funds will explain his big change in portfolio strategy, from a very concentrated approach to broad diversification.

Tocqueville Fund's Robert Kleinschmidt prides himself on being an independent thinker. In his exclusive interview with WEALTHTRACK he does not disappoint. While the rest of Wall Street has been expecting the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates he says they won't, and while most investors run from troubled stocks he finds gems among them. His deep value approach has generally worked. Under his stewardship, the 4-star rated Tocqueville Fund has delivered market and category beating returns.
