Beyond the Dollar offers the ultimate way to dollar-proof your portfolio and internationalize your lifestyle. It is our mission to deliver you the best information in the clearest way possible.
We’ve put together this section of frequently asked questions to shed some light on what we’re all about.
Founded in 2015, the Beyond the Dollar is a monthly newsletter published by Beyond the Dollar LLC.
The U.S. dollar is crushing currencies all across the world: the yen, the euro, and the Canadian dollar, among others. In fact, it’s been more than 10 years since we last saw the dollar this strong…
But the strength will not last forever; and it’s not a question of “if” the dollar will weaken, but rather “when.” In other words, there is no better time than the present to take advantage of non-dollar opportunities across the world.
Beyond the Dollar will help you dollar-proof your portfolio and also expose you to the benefits of making your life more international – whether that means spending more time abroad or taking advantage of profitable offshore investment opportunities.
Note that we do not provide personal investment advice, offer brokerage services or manage money.

Further, a 25% trailing stop is placed on every equity in the portfolio, based on the price at which it was purchased.
But there’s more…
Some of the picks in the portfolio – including real estate picks – are a bit more difficult to track compared with traditional investment picks such as stocks and bonds. There is a special section of the portfolio for these unorthodox investment picks, and you’ll always be given pertinent updates for those as well.
