The Coffee Can Approach

The coffee can investing approach operates on a buy and forget model. In the long-term, allowing the best businesses to continue compounding your wealth has proven to be an effective strategy. Although the principle appears simple, in practice it is almost never followed.

Central banks banking governments

Just how much do the world’s central banking powers own of their government’s stock of financial obligations is astounding.

Cloud stands to be a key beneficiary with penetration expected to double (10% -> 20%) over the coming 3-4 years, in a total market that will be ~15-20% larger ($716bn -> $837bn)
