About Härje Ronngard

Harje Ronngard is a Junior Analyst at Markets and Money.

With an academic background in finance and investments, Harje knows how simple, yet difficult investing can be. He has worked with a range of assets classes, from futures to equities. But he’s found his niche in equity valuation.

It’s not good enough to be right on average when it comes to investing. The market is volatile and it only takes one bad day to ruin your portfolio. You don’t want to end up like the six foot man that drowned in the river that was five foot deep on average. It’s why Harje is constantly reminding investors of their downside risk here at Markets and Money. He does so by simply asking just two questions.  What is it worth? And how much does it cost?

These two questions alone open up a world of investment opportunities which Harje shares with Markets and Money readers.

Right now Harje is focused on managing research and investments over at the Legacy Portfolio. An investment publication designed to significantly grow investor’s wealth over time with deeply undervalued businesses.

Harje also contributes his insights in Total Income, headed by income specialist Matt Hibbard. Harje loves cash-rich businesses, so he feels right at home amongst Matt’s high yielding income plays.

Let me explain how this will create opportunities for individual investors like you…

A New Silk Road Paved with Investment Opportunities

They’re calling it the ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative. It will cover 65 countries, touching more than 4.4 billion people. It’s China’s answer to opening up trade with the rest of the world. This project is a massive opportunity for Aussie businesses. And that means it could also be a massive opportunity for you.

China Could Wreak Havoc on Stocks Everywhere

It’s still not clear if China will start selling US bonds. In fact, it could be that China can’t help but buy more US bonds. So what can you do if the second largest US bond holder goes haywire? Reduce losses as much as possible. It’s probably one of, if not the most important rules when investing.

Airlines to Enter Another Bad Century?

Some would tell you to go into the airline industry. It’s extremely competitive. Travelers usually pick their flights based on price. So for many air carriers, it’s a race to operate at the cheapest price possible.
