Readers of Tradestreaming may remember I recently interviewed James Juliano, a partner at Kairos Capital (see Investing Using Policy as a Guide). Kairos is a boutique shop that runs portfolios using a battle-tested form of policy analysis that's been the life's work of founder, Russell Redenbaugh.
New investment newsletter that takes a top-down approachWith policy research as its backbone, the firm has launched a weekly newsletter called Reading the World. Subscribers to the newsletter will receive a weekly missive with:
- 10+ pages of analysis

- next, what to do with your money: Once readers are informed of the week's impactful events, readers are given access to what Kairos calls The Allocator. While it's not a buy list, it is a dashboard that labels each asset class as green, yellow, or red.
