Crawford Asset Management, LLC (CAM) is a state-registered Investment Advisor. CAM’s business is located on a bucolic walnut wooded acre adjoining the beautiful Milwaukee River in Glendale, Wisconsin.
The Managing Member of CAM is Mark Crawford, a.k.a. Marcus. Marcus Crawford has been managing money and advising clients since 1982. Marcus’s favorite hobbies are guiding clients to the end; reading, writing, studying physics, and managing the Reid Crawford Arboretum in Port Washington, WI.
CAM believes that the world capital markets in the short run are driven by imperfect images, uncertainty and irrationality. World Capital markets may, in the short run, be shrouded in speculation and casino like behavior.
CAM encourages clients to see through and beyond the present tense and focus on longer term market cycles and personal objectives.
CAM believes that Wall Street has imperfect knowledge of the future, imperfect knowledge of risk bubbles, and ineffective scientific warning systems.
Wall Street serves itself and not “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity….”
CAM believes that investing involves risk, and possible loss of principal. International asset classes, including USA and North America, involve risk of loss from currency changes, differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instabilities.
CAM believes that global capital markets are positively correlated in every moment; the hurricane winds created by one fan affect winds everywhere. There are no safe havens or Gardens of Eden’s.
Cam recommends that investors become self-reliant, independent of any research source, thoughtful, and check their biases at door thresholds. There are no guarantees. Chaos is Wall Street’s bedfellow and your nightmare; or your sweet dream if you nourish chaos.
