About BlueStone Investments
BlueStone Investments, LLC was founded in 2007 on the principle that there are significant opportunities to profit by challenging conventional wisdom in the investment management industry, removing human emotion from trading to the greatest extent possible, and focusing on absolute performance.
Our approach has been validated over the past year as we have trounced the performance of every international index and virtually all other investment firms during a period of extreme volatility and emotional price influences.
