Tony Robbins is a renowned passionate motivational speaker. He has the uncanny ability to get you fired up about almost anything. In 2009 he decided to do something about the state of money management in America. This is presented in his book, MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom. In that book, he goes through the steps to get you to be financially independent. He teamed up with 50 of the top finance and investment experts in the world. One of those is Ray Dalio, CEO of Bridgewater. The largest hedge fund in the world. Together this dynamic duo presents a portfolio that they believe will do well in any market climate. This is called the All-Weather portfolio
There is also an All-Seasons portfolio. The All-Seasons portfolio was developed by the Bridgewater hedge fund that Ray Dalio oversees. The All-Weather portfolio is a more simple portfolio than the All-Seasons portfolio.
Both are portfolios that pay homage to the Permanent Portfolio by Harry Browne. You can read more about the Permanent Portfolio in The Permanent Portfolio: Do Well No Matter What Happens
