C. Douglas Davenport


All-Weather Investor Trading Service


C. Douglas "Doug" Davenport has more than 33 years of successful investment management experience. After successful tenures at several financial firms including Kidder Peabody, he was hired by Sir John Templeton in 1998 to launch and manage The Wisdom Fund. As manager of The Wisdom Fund, Mr. Davenport outperformed the S&P 500 for a decade and earned 5-Star Morningstar ratings for ten of the 11 years that he managed the fund. In 2006, Sir John tapped Mr. Davenport to help him develop and manage a unique strategy for managing a model portfolio of ETFs, which employs a proprietary set of technical timing tools, trading five ETFs hand-picked by Sir John to give investors exposure to major asset classes: stocks, gold, oil and currencies. His ETF trading model beat the S&P 500 Total Return Index by 57 to one, posting a total return of 830.4%; enough to turn an initial investment of $25,000 into $230,600. In 2013, Mr. Davenport co-founded the All-Weather Investor trading service with Weiss Research to help investors use the Templeton/Davenport ETF trading strategy to grow their wealth.
