[WEBINAR] Steen Jakobsen: Why I'm selling the banks, buying the mines, and avoiding dividend stocks

There are two types of economists in this world: those who generally form views at or near consensus; and those who like to bust paradigms and present alternate views.

The latter, which characterises our guest in this webinar, make for entertaining listening. Why? Good investors and traders constantly pressure-test their thinking and welcome counter arguments to their views, in order to remain sharp and retain high conviction.

Steen Jakobsen is the Chief Economist and CIO of Saxo Bank, and he joins our Global Investment Director, Oliver Gordon, for his first ever webinar (held live for Rivkin members last week) to test, shock, twist and clobber your view of the world and its economy.

In this complimentary webinar, Steen Jakobsen, prefaces his 40-minute presentation with the proclamation "I've predicted five of the last two crises." He counters this rather pessimistic view with "But it's so bad, it can only get better from here." Watch and learn Steen's views on:

  1. what's causing record Australian house prices, why it's ridiculous that SMSFs can purchase property, and why we're due for a boom in late 2015
  2. why negative gearing is a terrible thing and what we need to do with it
  3. why global volatility will significantly increase soon
  4. when he plans to sell Aussie banks and switch to miners, and why he's avoiding dividend stocks
  5. why he predicts the RBA will cut, rather than hike, rates
  6. why fixed income will offer the best returns for investors next year
  7. where iron ore prices are going
  8. and more....

Investing in and trading securities (such as shares listed on the ASX) and/or derivatives (such as Contracts for Difference or 'CFDs') carry financial risks. CFDs carry with them various additional risks that differ from more simple securities such as fully-paid company shares. Some of these risks include not owning the underlying instrument from which a price is being derived, settling trades 'over the counter' with a financial institution rather than on a stock exchange, and using leverage to gain access to trades that may have a higher face value than your initial deposit. This risk of leverage means that it is possible to lose more than your initial investment. Our aim is to create more life choices for our clients, which means improving the wealth of clients throughout many market cycles by nurturing a relationship spanning many years.
