Tom Dyson

Tom Dyson is the editor of Postcards from the Fringe and Tom’s Portfolio. He’s a former London banker and money manager.

In 2018, Tom sold his furniture, handed back the keys to his Florida apartment, and set off on a two-year trip around the world. His Postcards from the Fringe e-letter is a chronicle of life on the road with his ex-wife, three kids, and a suitcase.

Tom also documents his thoughts on the markets and the global economy in his Postcards. He’s well-known for his contrarian ideas, among them, buying bitcoin when it was selling for just $6 in 2011… right before it climbed 302,000%… as well as his “all in” bet on gold in 2002, right before it became that decade’s best-performing investment.

But that wasn’t the last time Tom went all-in on gold. Starting in 2018, he bet nearly $1 million on a gold strategy he developed. He believes it could be the biggest moneymaking opportunity of the next two decades. In Tom’s Portfolio, he breaks down the ideal portfolio to take advantage of this strategy.
