What You Can Expect From The Atlas Investor Website


Weekly Notes With Tiho — Issue 1

Location: Singapore, Singapore

It's good to be back and writing again.

My last publication was in September 2016 on the old website called the Short Side of Long.

That was a free blog I ran for years, building a meaningful following and meeting plenty of friends along the way.

Over the last few months, I have worked hard with a designer and web developer to rebrand my financial publications.

The result is a new website and a company called The Atlas Investor.

Teaming up with a handful of experts and specialists in various fields, my aim is to deliver highest quality advice and service to readers like you.

Long Term Investing Is Still The Primary Focus

Firstly, let me say that I will still be running a free weekly publication. This is something that was very much enjoyed during my time with Short Side of Long.

Once a week I will be writing with a global macro style and focusing on asset classes from stocks to bonds, and from currencies to commodities.

We will also cover economic conditions, credit conditions, leading indicators, sentiment, hedge fund positioning, market breadth, statistics, valuations, monetary policy and various events as they occur from month to month.


Plenty of charts, like the one above, will appear in the future Weekly Note posts. Here, we are looking at South Korea since its an export powerhouse. Over the last three months, exports are up by 11.4% on average. In particular, February was strong with exports up almost 19% year over year. The global economy is muddling along and Asia is finding its mojo again.


However, I won't be disclosing my trades as I used to in the past.

If you are interested in our portfolio positioning, I encourage to contact me and set up an hourly investment consultation, where we can go over the trading and investing strategies.

I will also be offering services focused on:

  • Personally Tailored Portfolio Construction & Management
  • Currency Denomination
  • Alternate Asset Diversification
  • Global Real Estate Investments

And for those with higher risk tolerance... Learning how to trade.

Learn How To Be A Trader In Financial Markets

Trading is tough.

Very tough.

It is also not healthy to trade, or better yet said — it not healthy to overtrade.

Having said that, I believe I am more than qualified for this job. I started learning how to trade during my university years as a young man, so I am a self-taught and successful trader.

I still trade for myself, in my own personal account and I don't think I will ever stop.

A lot of the industry people who know me personally believe I have the extraordinary ability to time markets, with a gut instinct.

Can this be taught?

I believe so.

The knowledge and experience I can pass on to you will certainly help.

I have lived of profits from trading markets.

I have the traveled the world for years, as a result of the success I've had.

But that success came at a high price, steep learning curve and overabundance of mistakes.

If you want to learn how to trade markets and profit from them, I believe I can help you.

I will be doing one on one classes teaching my trading skills and how I finally achieved my consistency to rely on my trading as an income.

Most importantly, I will discuss and share my journey along the way to profitability, including all the mistakes I have made and the money I have lost making those mistakes.

New Focus Is On Global Wealth Services

Services, publications, and advice won't just stop with investment strategies.

The world is becoming smaller and smaller. Globalization is affecting all of us.

We live in the world of location independent businesses, visa-free jet travel, multinational company structures, no restrictions on foreign investment and freedom of captain movement.

We have over 200 jurisdictions around the world.

Some are better than others.

Certain jurisdictions offer lower tax advantages. A handful offer better asset protection laws.

On the other hand, the majority of jurisdictions want to tax you as much as they can.

Some jurisdictions make it easier to migrate there, while others are exactly the opposite.

Several jurisdictions allow you to gain a second passport to diversify your life, the same way an investment portfolio diversifies your wealth.

Personally, I am a holder of several passports and residence permits around the world.

I understand that certain jurisdictions offer the better quality of life, health care, and education. Not just for you, but for your family.

Others offer favorable business conditions and growth opportunities.

Banking is becoming harder and harder in 2017. After US introduced FATCA, which has been a success for rising tax revenues, OECD and Eurozone initiative has seen Common Reporting Standards (CRS) and Automatic Exchange Of [Banking] Information (AEOI) introduced in 2017.

I recently opened up a new corporate bank account in Hong Kong and as a result had to sign a CRS form. It’s like the FATCA for non-US citizens.

Today, more than ever before, successful business people & investor are operating as global citizens and need solid and reliable advice.

Services For Global Citizens

I believe a global citizen is an open minded individual, who understands the pitfalls and drawbacks of home country bias.

This term generally describes individuals who are only attracted to opportunities in domestic and local markets, primarily due to comfort.

Comfort is rarely a wise decision in the world of business.

Being an Australian, I’m often fond of saying:

Most Aussies are renowned for not only ever investing outside their home country, but also never venturing outside their home town.


On the other hand, a global citizen has the desire to go beyond geographical borders and ultra conservative opinions — in search of greener pastures.

Because some jurisdictions will look after you better than others.

And we are here to help you with that. Wealth Services we will be offering are:

  • International Tax Planning
  • Asset Protection Strategies
  • Residency Planning
  • Citizenship Planning
  • Offshore Banking
  • Business Development
