About

Gyroscopic Portfolios is a website dedicated to exploring and espousing the concept of a truly balanced investment portfolio. Many investment strategies touted by the finance industry are heavily tilted towards one particular economic condition. This can lead to fantastic results in the short run, but disastrous results in the long run. 

The centerpiece of the Gyroscopic philosophy is Harry Browne’s Permanent Portfolio. This strategy posits an unchanging asset allocation consisting of stocks, bonds, cash, and gold in equal proportions. The nominal compound annual growth rate of such a portfolio has been approximately eight and three-quarters percent with minimal volatility.
