The following is not intended as investment advice. Your capital is at risk when you invest in shares – you can lose some or all of your money, so never risk more than you can afford to lose. Forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future results. Always seek personal advice if you are unsure about the suitability of any investment.
If you want the chance to survive 2016 without losing a significant amount of money, read this report immediately
It is too late to save Britain. But you could still save your investments, retirement plans and savings – IF you act quickly.
Britain is about to be hit by a tidal wave of financial and political chaos.
And you could lose a significant sum of money as a result.
I apologise for being so blunt. But there’s no time to waste.
If you live in Britain, this will affect you.
If you have any savings in a British bank, or hold large amounts of assets in pounds sterling, this will affect you.
If you have an investment portfolio or financial plan for your retirement, you cannot ignore this.
And if you have children or grandchildren whose future relies on the stability and safety of Britain, this most certainly affects you.
Very soon – in all likelihood this summer – Britain will go to the polls to decide whether we want to stay in the EU, or leave forever. It is easily the most significant vote Britain’s modern history.
But the most important decision you need to make this year is NOT political.
That’s what my warning to you today concerns: your money, your retirement plans, your investment portfolio and your savings.
All of them are at risk.
Your investment portfolio, savings and financial plans could be ruined by the coming EU referendum.
It doesn’t matter what your views on the EU are. You might already be convinced that leaving the EU is the only way Britain can prosper in the coming years. You may feel like Britain should try to reform the Union from within.
Or you may not care.
Whatever your political views, if you care about your wealth… and Britain’s future… this letter needs your immediate attention.
You should know upfront: I’m not a politician.
I’m not here to tell you how to vote. My business is money. Specifically, helping you protect and grow yours.
And the EU referendum could cost you a significant amount of money. I say that on behalf of one of Britain’s oldest financial publications, with close to eight decades experience in the markets.
My warning for you today comes as the result of nine months’ and £100,000+ worth of dedicated research by my organisation’s top financial and geopolitical analysts.
In fact, a large part of what I have to share with you today comes directly from one of the most experienced former fund managers in the UK. He personally managed $3 billion of client assets for twenty years (with an outstanding track record). You may well know him from one of his 200+ TV appearances.
There are several things he personally recommends you do before Britain goes to the polls later this year, to help you survive the turmoil.
Having a veteran like him on your side, showing you precisely where and when to invest your hard earned capital, could be the difference between making a catastrophic mistake with your money… and retiring wealthy.
In the letter that follows I’m going to show you – quickly and candidly – why the EU referendum threatens the wealth of everyone here in Britain, no matter what the result.
I’ll also show you what we believe you must do with your money without delay to survive.
Are your savings safe?
Imagine you wake up one morning, switch on the television and discover that a high street bank here in Britain has gone under.
It’s a shock.
And what really sends a shiver down your spine is the fact that it’s the bank where you keep your savings.
But once the initial surprise wears off, you calm down and remind yourself that you should be fine. You have £70,000 in savings on deposit. You’re covered by the government’s deposit guarantee scheme. But that hasn’t stopped thousands of people queuing outside branches, desperately trying to get their money back.
Flicking through the TV news coverage, you see that the government is in discussions with the banks about a bail out to steady the system.
Then something happens that shocks everyone in the country.
EU representatives from Brussels and Frankfurt arrive to take part in the negotiations.
There are rumours of disagreements between the UK government and the EU.
David Cameron is asked to leave the negotiations. The EU representatives take charge, dealing with the banks directly. Our Prime Minister is kept away, on a different floor of 10 Downing Street.
Late at night, an EU spokesman announces that an agreement has been reached.
There will be no bailout.
There will be a bail IN.
Depositors – you – will have to pay a one-off tax to recapitalise the banks, at the demand of the EU.
This sounds like a nightmare.
It’s a true story. It happened in 2013.
The only thing I’ve changed is the name of the country. It didn’t happen in Britain. It happened in Cyprus.
As the Cypriot banking system imploded, a European delegation arrived and imposed a bail in on depositors. According to The Wall Street Journal the democratically elected Cypriot President was locked out of discussions entirely.
How do you think that felt?
If you’d seen a chunk of your wealth and savings taken from you by a bunch of unelected bureaucrats who lock your own Prime Minister out of the room?
I don’t know about you, but I’d feel angry… bitter… even humiliated.
And the worst part?
It’s British investors like you who are next on the block for this kind of humiliation.
Damned if we do,
damned if we don’t
The Foreign Office’s private archives show that as early as 1970 it was warning of the threat posed by the EU.
The warnings were ignored.
And ever since then, the European Union has brushed aside all democratic opposition… asserted its supremacy over Britain… and advanced its unspoken agenda, which is:
No matter how people vote or what people ask for, the EU is designed to grow bigger and more powerful at all costs.
To be clear: As the Cypriot bail in shows, that cost isn’t just to our political or economic systems.
It’s to your personal wealth and investments.
If you don’t believe me, read the Werner Report.
It’s a report commissioned in 1969 by the European Economic Area (EEA).
And it lays out – in detail – how to centralise power within the EU, systematically stripping sovereign nations of their economic and political power.
In Werner’s words:
The transfer to the Community level of the powers hitherto by national authorities will go hand-in-hand with the transfer of a corresponding Parliamentary responsibility from the national plane to that of the Community.
I’m not going to bore you with the rest. But I can tell you precisely what the report meant.
As far back as 1970, it was clear that the EU had to transfer political and economic power away from individual countries and to itself.
It was the plan all along. That was the EU’s secret agenda.
This report was widely distributed amongst the European political class, including right here in Britain. In fact, the British Foreign Office produced a secret briefing note for Prime Minister Edward Heath, warning of the consequences of the Werner proposals.
According to the briefing, the proposals went “well beyond the full establishment of a Common Market”. According to the note the plan led to:
The ultimate creation of a European federal state, with a single currency. All the basic instruments of national economic management (fiscal, monetary, incomes and regional policies) would ultimately be handed over to the central federal authorities.
The Werner report suggests that this radical transformation of present Communities should be accomplished within a decade.
Our leaders understood what was happening.
The modern-day EU was designed with political and economic slavery in mind.
And still the politicians of the day persuaded us to join.
We’re about to suffer the consequences of that decision. And when I say ‘we’ I mean not just Britain as a nation… but you as a private citizen and investor.
The illusion of choice
Later this year Britain will vote on whether we stay in the EU or leave.
But either choice is fraught with danger. Let me explain.
Option 1: We stay.
If Britain fails to leave the EU this year, there will likely be no going back. Ever.
A plan nearly 50 years in the making will have come to pass. We will be bound to a broken EU superstate in ways we can never undo. Your children and your grandchildren will live in a country controlled by Brussels.
Option 2: We leave
Not once in the history of the EU has a nation as important and influential as ours stood up and dared suggest we’d be better off outside of it.
That is what our referendum is: a direct threat to the EU.
‘Brexit’ could trigger the wholesale break up of the European Union. Billionaire fund manager George Soros recently warned that ‘the European Union is ‘on the verge of collapse.‘ Dr Nouriel Roubini says the disintegration of the EU is the biggest geopolitical threat of 2016.
The bottom line is this: The result of either outcome is financial, economic and political chaos.
That means turmoil in the financial markets. It means a hugely unstable currency. It means the kind of uncertainty that can ruin your financial plans – leaving you worse off come your retirement.
But what can you do? If you can’t save your country, you may still be able to save your family and your wealth.
I told you earlier the most important decision you have to make today isn’t political. It’s financial.
This isn’t just a critical moment in British history, it’s a critical moment in your financial life.
Are you prepared for financial chaos?
My own view is that Britain should leave the EU.
But as you’ve seen, there could be chaos, both economic and social, no matter what the result.
Are you prepared for that? Is your portfolio set up to withstand a wave of uncertainty and volatility? How will your retirement plans stand up to the shock? Are you prepared to turn this situation to your advantage? Or will you simply close your eyes and hope for the best?
Because believe me, no matter what happens there WILL be huge risks… and major opportunities.
I know, because my analysts have researched the most likely outcomes of the EU referendum, analysing the financial risks and pinpointing solutions. In the course of our work, we’ve spoken to fund managers, prominent and well connected MPs and highly respected academics from around the world.
We’ve boiled down all our work into a special research report called “Brexit: How you can survive the most critical moment in Britain’s modern history”
In this report, you’ll learn theinvestment implications of Britain leaving the EU. Much of what we reveal may surprise you, including the idea that there are some investments that could rise as uncertainty about ‘Brexit’ intensifies.
This report identifies three investments that could go up as the ‘Brexit’ vote nears. It also makes a point that few people are talking about yet. Namely, that no matter which way the vote goes, the lead up to it could see a much weaker British pound.
If you hold your savings in a British bank in pounds sterling… if you hold investments denominated in pounds… or your retirement plans rely on the pound, this will affect you.
I won’t go into the details of it here. But I will say that once you understand what a weaker pound means for the economy, it’s a lot easier to figure out what to do with your money. But the time to think about it – and give yourself options – is now.
Put simply, of all the research and analysis our organisation has put together, this is the ONE report you absolutely must read.
The good news is, we’re sharing this report with a handful of like-minded investors. I’d like you to be one of them. In fact I’d like to send you this report immediately. It’s that important.
Before I do that, I’d like to quickly explain a little more about who we are and how we can help you grow your wealth.
Resurrecting a venerable British institution at a critical moment in UK history
My name, by the way, is Daniel Denning.
And I’m the publisher of The Fleet Street Letter – Britain’s oldest financial newsletter.
The Fleet Street Letter has a long history of helping private investors like you protect and grow their wealth. In fact, it was founded in the 1930s. Following a discreet trip to fascist Italy, our founder Patrick Maitland published a warning in 1938 that began our tradition of financial and geopolitical analysis.
Upon his return he wrote his followers a letter. A simple and direct message stood out in::
Appeasement will not work. War is coming to Europe, but not until September at the earliest.
On the 1st of September 1939, Hitler invaded Poland and the Second World War began, exactly as Maitland had foretold.
It was the first major world event Maitland correctly anticipated.
It wasn’t the last.
Remember “Black Monday” in October 1987, when thousands of investors saw their savings wiped out?
It was one of the worst crashes in history. But it was no surprise for our followers. They’d been put ‘on guard’ over five months earlier – in a discreet and timely warning.
In his 1988 book, The Great Reckoning, our former Editor in Chief, the late Lord William Rees Mogg, identified that New York – particularly the financial markets there – was almost unguarded and open to attack. He based this on a detailed study of the infrastructure, arms movements inside the USA, and the political situation in the Middle East.
He was right. Twice. The World Trade Centres were attacked in 1994… and 2001.
In September 1999, while the rest of the world was piling into tech stocks, they received another warning: “CRASH IMMINENT”.
The FTSE 100 peaked four months later, falling into a three-year bear market.
So you see… our organisation is steeped in the political and financial history of Britain. And while we haven’t got everything right, at critical moments in our history we have stood alongside private investors, warning them… guiding them… and often helping them to profit.
Today I’m sharing – for the very first time – our latest warning.
As I’ve shown you, I believe Britain is facing a critical moment in its history. The events of the next year, and the outcome of the EU referendum, will shape Britain’s place in the world for the next century or more.
The vote may be a political one.
But the real choice you have to make is financial.
Specifically, how are you going to survive and prosper through the coming chaos? Do you have a plan to protect against a falling pound? Will your retirement plans stand up to the market turmoil created by the vote?
To be blunt, if you don’t have a plan… I think you need one.
And you need one NOW. Waiting until the vote is upon us will be too late. Which is why I’d like to make you an offer…
A new threat… and a new Fleet Street Letter to combat it
The Fleet Street Letter may be one of
Britain’s most venerated institutions… but it hasn’t existed in exactly the
same form for eighty years.
As the world has changed… so the letter
has shifted to meet and respond to new threats.
consider the financial fallout of the referendum… and the impact it could have
on your personal finances… as THE most critical threat to private investors
One you must guard against… and take advantage of.
Which is why I’ve chosen this moment to relaunch an entirely new and reinvigorated Fleet Street Letter – with a new editorial staff and investment strategy.
To do this, I’ve hired one of the City of London’s most respected former fund managers as our Investment Director.
His name is Charlie Morris.
After a career as an officer in the Grenadier Guards, Charlie spent 17 years as the Head of Absolute Return at HSBC Global Asset Management, managing more than $3 billion in client funds.
During this time, Charlie helped both protect and grow the wealth of scores of wealthy investors. In fact – and keeping in mind that past performance is no guide to future results – between 2003 and 2015, his fund made a cumulative return of more than 100%. Take a look:
He’s known and respected as a specialist on gold and momentum investing. He’s made over 200 appearances as a guest expert on various financial television programmes.
In short, he’s not an ‘armchair pundit’… he’s a battle-hardened investor with real experience making money in the financial markets.
And he’s a perfect fit as Investment Director of The Fleet Street Letter.
In fact, Charlie has spent the last six months working on a series of special research reports detailing precisely where you should be investing your money in 2016.
Just keep in mind: The price of oil has fallen 70% since 2014, the FTSE 100 entered bear market territory last month and interest rates in America are now rising after seven years at near zero.
On top of that the EU referendum – potentially the most critical national event for half a century – is looming here in Britain.
Where you choose to invest your money today could be the most important financial decision you’ll ever make. So what do you do?
The Fleet Street Letter’s new Investment Director Charlie Morris believes there are several key moves you need to make immediately to succeed this year. And he’s detailed them all in a series of research reports – which are free for Fleet Street Letter members.
RESEARCH REPORT #1: Brexit: How to survive the most critical moment in Britain’s modern history.
You need to understand the implications of the referendum – and how it could affect your core investments. In this special report, Charlie explains which assets are most likely to suffer (there’s one that every investor will own) and pinpoints what he’s personally recommending to protect and grow your wealth.
RESEARCH REPORT #2: Your 2016 investment strategy.
In this report Charlie reveals his one asset class you should avoid at all costs. He also explains how to know when to get back into the oil, emerging markets and commodities for maximum profits this year.
RESEARCH REPORT #3: Six signals to detect $60 oil (and the 28 companies at risk when the price falls further).
Is an opportunity hidden within the oil market carnage? Charlie believes so. In this report he reveals his oil “black list” of shares to dump and explains how to know when the oil comeback is upon us.
RESEARCH REPORT #4: Quality, value and trend: The three most important qualities of a good investment and how to measure them.
Membership of The Letter isn’t just about understanding the risks to your portfolio and protecting your wealth. We know that to help you live a freer, wealthier life, you also need a credible strategy to grow your money and increase your wealth.
Charlie’s 2016 investment plan is exactly that.
By combining the concepts of quality, value and trend, a new world opens up.
As with all the research I’ll share with you today – this is only available to Fleet Street Letter members.
Oh, and there’s one final report I’d like to send you.
It outlines the most important investment insights Charlie has had over 17 years running a $3 billion fund. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that this kind of experience is priceless. It’s the distilled wisdom of nearly two decades working at the sharp end of the global markets.
It’s called “What I learned from 17 years as a $3bn fund manager”.
And again, it’s yours when you take a trial of The Fleet Street Letter.
There IS one favour I’d ask of you in return, though.
And that’s that you take a one month, no obligation trial of The Fleet Street Letter. That way, you can put my claims to the test, sample Charlie’s research, private intelligence bulletins and detailed financial analysis for yourself.
That means you’ll be able to make the moves provided in your free report today… and benefit from The Fleet Street Letter’s unique insights for the next month.
These reports are the best place to start protecting your wealth at this critical point. They could be the difference between making a catastrophic mistake with your money… and retiring the way you want.
But the fact is, the information in this report is just the beginning. The investments we recommend are aimed at putting your money in the right place, right now.
Frankly, no one knows how this story will unfold… or what unexpected events Britain will face in the coming months.
That’s why I believe The Fleet Street Letter will be essential in these times. We’ll bring you vital updates on what’s happening… as well as providing you with ongoing recommendations you can implement to keep safe and growing.
That’s why I’d like to continue to share our very latest insights with you… as a member of The Fleet Street Letter.
In fact, I’ve created our special research reports – which you can download in a second – specifically to introduce you to Charlie’s work.
They’re a great introduction both to the threat posed by the EU… and to Charlie’s best investment ideas. And they come free when you take a one month no obligation trial of our work.
But please, don’t just take my word for it. I want you to hold our research in your hand and see it for yourself before you make any decision.
Take the time to judge our research and analysis for yourself.
And keep in mind that no matter what you invest in, your capital will be at risk. We can seek to mitigate that risk. But we cannot eliminate it.
And of course, if you’re not convinced that The Fleet Street Letter is for you, just contact us at any time during your first month, and we’ll refund your subscription. Everything we send you will be yours to keep regardless.
And what if you decide to stay with us and keep receiving our work over the coming months and years?
The usual cost of The Fleet Street Letter is £159 for a full year.
But if you decide to continue receiving The Fleet Street Letter after your trial, we’d like to offer you a special subscription of only £79 in your first year. That’s a 50% saving.
The Fleet Street Letter isn’t just about the pursuit of protecting and growing your wealth – though that is a big part of what we do.
For over seventy years it has stood for something more than that.
Today is no different.
As a member of The Letter, you’re tapping into a network of insightful, intelligent investors that can make a real difference not just to your finances… but your whole life.
Knowledge. The quality of your life and wealth is directly related to the quality of information and insight you have access to. The quest for higher quality information has been one of the defining ideas of The Letter, ever since Patrick Maitland travelled to Rome in pursuit of intelligence on fascist troop movements.
Values. The ideas of small government, individual freedom, sound money and sovereign independence form the basis of all our analysis.
Fellowship. One of the lessons I’ve learned over two decades in the financial world is… don’t associate with people you don’t respect. And The Fleet Street Letter is a great example of that. It’s more than just a collection of individuals who read the same publication. It’s a fellowship of investors who share the same values and outlook on life – who believe in the same things and are willing to stand up for what’s important to themselves and for Britain.
Freedom. We believe that the freedom to make your own choices – whether that’s where you put your money, where you live and work, or a nation’s freedom to determine its own future – is vital to a happy and wealthy life. It’s at the root of everything. It is my sincere hope that you share this belief.
If you share these values – join us and get our best investment ideas sent to you right away.
The secret to eighty years of success
I told you earlier that I put our success and longevity down to our focus on looking beyond the obvious and trying to understand the unseen factors at play in the world.
But this is relevant to risk, too.
At The Fleet Street Letter, we’ve always been of the opinion that risk cannot be avoided… but it can be understood. And understanding the risks you’re taking when you make an investment is vital to your success.
But you must also consider other things.
Will Iran close the Strait of Hormuz, sending oil prices spiking and hitting costs? What if interest rates rise? What if China devalues?
All of these ‘bigger’ risks must be considered and understood. In fact, I put a big part of the success of The Fleet Street Letter down to a complete mastery of these kinds of risks.
All of these risks must be understood. Risk is a part of investing. It’s something The Fleet Street Letter has never – and will never – ignore.
And it’s with that history in mind that I’ve written you this letter. I believe Britain is on the verge of a change which could derail the finances of everyone in this country. I’ve shared with you today the geopolitical, historical, political and economic trends that I believe makes this outcome a certainty.
But it’s important to note, we don’t just forecast these things for no reason. We always look for specific ways to profit from these changes.
And we’re not in the habit of making incredibly high risk ‘speculations’. As part of each monthly issue of The Fleet Street Letter, you’ll find opportunities carefully chosen from around the world by Charlie.
The bottom line here is that no matter what you invest in, your capital will be at risk. We can seek to mitigate that risk. But we cannot eliminate it.
You’re free to follow as much or as little of our advice as you’d like. It’s entirely your choice.
What you will discover, very quickly, is that all of our research is dedicated to deciphering world trends and deep changes… and finding ways to profit from them.
Will you join us and save yourself?
The single most important decision you will make this year is what you do with your money.
Doing nothing… or worse, making a last minute decision without thinking it through… could be catastrophic.
At times like this, I believe there’s no better man to have in your corner than our Investment Director Charlie Morris. In his seventeen year career managing billions, Charlie saw it all.
He knows exactly how to help guide you through a crisis.
He understands how to deal with complex threats to your wealth…
And he can show you precisely where the opportunities to GROW your wealth are.
There’s never been a more important time to have him on your side. The EU referendum threatens to ruin your long term financial plans.
Charlie understands how to head off that threat.
But ultimately, what you do is your decision.
I’ve laid out our arguments for you today. I’ve shown you how the EU has sought to hijack the levers of power in Britain and Europe.
I’ve shown you how leaving could tear the Union apart… and staying will bind us in ways we might never undo. Either outcome will result in financial and political chaos.
I’ve shown you how Charlie has spent six months preparing a detailed plan designed to help you survive no matter what happens.
And I’ve offered to share all Charlie’s research with you – with no obligation – when you take a one month trial of The Fleet Street Letter.
What happens next is your choice.
You can click on one of the links below and join us – trial our work and see how valuable it is for yourself.
Or you can go it alone.
To me, given the threat and Charlie’s vast experience in the markets, there’s only one logical decision to make:
It’s your call entirely.
Thank you for your time.
Publisher, The Fleet Street Letter.
