There are many exciting opportunities in the natural resources area today, including shale natural gas, master limited partnerships and agriculture and food. But when it comes to profiting from these areas, diversification is key, explain Frank Holmes and Brian Hicks in an interview with JT Long from The Energy Report. Brian provides details, saying,

“This is an unprecedented time with respect to macro policy, considering the economic conditions in Europe, the expansion of the money supply in the developing world and central banks increasing their balance sheets. There are lots of crosscurrents. We have chosen to negotiate those crosscurrents by being diversified. Our resources fund is balanced across the spectrum of natural resources.”
