Welcome to the Lawton on Markets blog. 


The goal of the Lawton on Markets blog is to help you better harness one of the most powerful forces ever invented, financial markets, to produce higher returns with lower risk in strategies that improve society.

After forty years of wrestling with financial markets in one capacity or another, I have learned a thing or two about how to tame these beasts and will pass that knowledge on to you here. 

You will learn the market secrets that helped me to build and lead some large global asset management companies as well as my own firm, Seagate Global. 

We will seek to give you an edge by taking you behind the scenes in the halls of power in Asia, such as the People’s Bank of China, Malacanang Palace in The Philippines or the Prime Minister’s Office in Malaysia while providing unique investment ideas and insights.  

Finally, we will talk about investment theories and strategies that help people or improve the environment such as investing in recycling, affordable housing, or clean energy.


Please join us as a regular reader of Lawton on Markets as we navigate the current unprecedented period of overpriced assets and low interest rates.
