Welcome to EWM INSIGHTS where we celebrate on HUMAN CAPITAL!

In this special episode of EWM Insights, Portfolio Manager and Equity Analyst, Peter Boardman is our guest.

We pull back the curtain and let the public listen in on a private discussion normally exclusive to private clients of Ellis Wealth Management. 

We discuss the complexity and attraction to the Japanese Market in a time where many are considering investment options outside of the US Market.

Peter Boardman shares his unique insight to Japan from his own passion and life experiences - as well as his professional career. 

Topics Covered:

  • Lessons to be Learned from the History of the Nikkei
  • Demographics in the Land of the Rising Sun
  • The 4 R's of Japan
  • Japan's Birthrate and the Effect on the Economy 
  • Will Political Tensions with China move Japanese jobs elsewhere in in Asia or Mexico 

Note: This is personal life story and discussion, and NOT an offer to purchase or sell insurance or investment products. 

It is Ellis Wealth Management’s expressed position that investments should be understood and discussed with an accredited financial professional before purchase. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments can loose value which includes risk to principle
