Benj Gallander has among the highest short- and long-term returns in North America. Author of the bestselling The Uncommon Investor and The Uncommon Entrepreneur, co-editor of Contra the Heard Investment Letter, and investment columnist for national newspapers and magazines, Gallander´s approach to the stock market has the investment world buzzing. Standing fast to his decidedly contrarian position, Gallander does not believe in buying and holding stock in perpetuity, and he thinks that stop losses are idiotic, like playing cards with an open hand. Instead, Gallander has redefined conventional norms of the risk-reward relationship: he rarely buys a stock that does not have a chance at a minimum 100 percent return, and he remains unconcerned with the daily pulse of trading. And all he has to show for his contrarian position is a ten-year annualized return of 15.4 percent with a staggering 64.8 in the meltdown of 2001 and an outstanding 43 percent return in 2002. The Contrarian Investor´s Thirteen focuses on the basics of Gallander´s controversial methodology, philosophy and the rules around which he has structured his investment approach. His goal is simple, to show people how to improve their financial returns by themselves, reducing their dependence on costly brokers and advisors.
The Chief Investment Officer of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management explains why goals, not markets, should be the primary focus of your investment strategy-and offers a practical, innovative framework for making smarter choices about aligning your goals to your investment strategy. Today all of us bear the burden of investing wisely, but too many of us are preoccupied with the wrong priorities-increasing returns at all costs, finding the next star fund manager, or beating ´´the market.´´ Unfortunately conventional portfolio theory and the grand debates in finance have offered investors only incomplete solutions. What is needed, argues Ashvin B. Chhabra, is a framework that shifts the focus of investment strategy from portfolios and markets to individuals and the objectives that really matter: things like protecting against unexpected financial crises, paying for education or retirement, and financing philanthropy and entrepreneurship. The Aspirational Investor is a practical, innovative approach to managing wealth based on key goals and the careful allocation of risks rather than responding to the whims of the financial markets. Chhabra introduces his ´´Wealth Allocation Framework,´´ which accommodates the three seemingly incompatible objectives that must underpin every sound wealth management plan: the need for financial security in the face of known and unknowable risks; the need to maintain current living standards over time despite inflation; and the need to pursue aspirational goals for wealth creation. Chhabra reveals some surprising facts about wealth creation, reinterprets the success formulas of investing greats like Warren Buffett, and closes the gap between theory and practice by simplifying our understanding of key asset classes and laying out a concise roadmap for identifying, prioritizing, and quantifying financial goals. Raising the bar for what we should expect from our investment portfolios-and our financial advisors-The Aspirational Investor sets us on a path to more confident and fulfilling financial lives.
