A Positive Outlook Seeking Positive Outcomes

We believe there’s never been a better time to be a resident of planet Earth: the course of human progress is on an upward arc, bringing improvements and innovations at a pace this planet has never seen before. We think the upward arc will continue, bringing more discoveries, developments and shared wealth.

In short, we think the best is yet to come.

Investing with a focus on human progress allows us to look for opportunities that other investors may not. While others maintain a pessimistic attitude about global trends, we cultivate a positive outlook, finding opportunities in instances such as these, where others see only challenges:

  • China surpassed Japan to become the world’s second largest economy in 2010 as noted by the World Bank and increasingly plays an important and influential role in the global economy.
  • Emerging markets such as China and India are projected to drive energy consumption up 91% by 2035, according to the US Energy Information Administration’s International Energy Outlook 2012.
  • Worldwide discovery of oil peaked in 1964 and has followed a steady decline since. According to industry consultants IHS Energy, 90% of all known reserves are now in production, suggesting that few major discoveries remain to be made.

Our goal at Guinness Atkinson is to find ways to embrace global trends and to capitalize on potentially positive outcomes. Central to our purpose is to bring you along on that journey. Global transformation will affect your life and your children’s lives for generations to come. Don’t let human progress take you by surprise. We invite you to become engaged with global transformation and to participate with us in the opportunities that often come with change.
