Would you like an explanation of why Matthew left, or alternatively of why he absolutely should NOT leave NOW?


Well, the portfolio is down about 3% in over 2.5 years.
Its stated goal is: "...we'll use any security that helps us achieve our long-term portfolio goal of 15% annual returns"

So, to achieve a compounded annual return of 15%, over, say, 10 years from inception, the portfolio would now need to grow at a compounded 22% for the next 7.5 years!!
Very, very, hard to do for anybody. As a matter of fact no TMF product has ever achieved it.
Much easier to start again somewhere else with a clean sheet and promise his new investors the usual 15% compounded annually...

Alternatively, if Matthew really thinks that over a full cycle he can achieve 15% compounded annual returns (which, mind you, means QUADRUPLING your investment in 10 years) he ABSOLUTELY should refrain from leaving us now!
Or do you really want to miss out on a quadripling of your investment in 7.5 years??!!
Because if he really is able to achieve such returns over a full cycle, guess who is going to profit from he future stellar results?
You and I, fellow Fools?

Unless Matthew lets us participate in his new fund.

Can we Matthew?
