The Saltydog portfolio: beating the FTSE 100 by a mile

"We launched Saltydog Investor in November 2010.

We knew the system worked. But we wanted to prove it to everyone else. So right away we started a demonstration portfolio, investing £40,000 of our own money and applying the Saltydog system.

We think the results speak for themselves.

Here’s the performance of the Saltydog ‘Tugboat’ portfolio vs. the FTSE 100, from November 2010 to the present:

Since launch the Saltydog total return is 59%,
with an average annual return of 7.3%

Just over six years ago we invested £40,000. That’s now grown to £63,689.

As you can see, the Saltydog portfolio has performed very strongly.

And I’d like to highlight four key points for you:

  • This is a very low risk strategy.

    The ‘Tugboat’ is our safest, least volatile, least risky portfolio. In other words, this market-beating performance hasn’t been achieved by wild, speculative punts.

    It’s been done using a very conservative, measured approach, with one of our main priorities being not to lose any money.

  • With trend investing you can avoid the market downturns

    Another vital thing to note is that the Saltydog portfolio has successfully avoided the worst of all the significant market downturns. Take another look at the chart. When the FTSE 100 falls sharply, the Saltydog portfolio either dips much less, continues sideways or even rises – for example, through most of 2015.

    This is exactly how trend investing is designed to work: avoiding the worst of the market downturns, and yet still taking advantage of the upturns.

  • You can easily replicate our results… just copy what we do

    You might be thinking that you wouldn’t be able to replicate our performance. But it’s easy to match what we’ve achieved - by simply copying what we do.

    Every week Douglas Chadwick (Saltydog’s founder) and I review the Saltydog portfolio and decide what to do – buy, sell or do nothing. I then send out an email to Saltydog members explaining our decisions and any actions we’re taking with the portfolio. Using that information, any Saltydog member can copy exactly what we’ve done. It’s very, very simple.

    Having said that, the Saltydog system is primarily designed for you to be able to make your own decisions about the best trends to invest in, and to create a portfolio that suits your requirements – more cautious, or more adventurous. You don’t need to copy us. We give you full access to our easy-to-understand data, and provide you with full instructions on how to take advantage of market trends. So you can use the Saltydog system however you like.

  • The Saltydog system is designed for ordinary investors

    Last of all, the Saltydog system doesn’t require great investment expertise or knowledge. We have specifically designed it for ordinary private investors. We don’t expect you to be a financial whizz-kid.

    You don’t need to spend your time trying to make sense of the financial news. You don’t need in-depth knowledge of companies. You don’t need to make predictions or forecasts about where the market is heading next.

    You just need to follow a few simple rules and principles, and make use of the easy-to-understand data that we provide.

As I said at the outset, we know the Saltydog system works, and our current members have told us about the impressive results they have achieved. So we have great confidence in it.

For this reason I’d like to invite you to take a 2-month FREE trial of Saltydog Investor, with absolutely no obligation on your part.

We’d love to show you how Saltydog could work for you.”
