The Invested Investor:The new rules for start-ups, scale-ups and angel investing Peter Cowley
In this essential handbook - a blend of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Happiness Project - the cohost of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and best-selling author Phil Town. Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town´s eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and best-selling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing - until she realized that her time-consuming career as a lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. In Invested, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold-standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the Forbes 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father´s investing knowledge into 12 easy-to-understand lessons. In each chapter Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepened the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy - and profitable - investing can be. Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between 1. Language: English. Narrator: Danielle Town, Phil Town.

When it comes to investing in the stock market, investors have plenty of options: They can do it themselves. Trillions of dollars are invested this way. (Of course, the only problem here is that most people have no idea how to analyze and choose individual stocks. Well, not really the only problem. Most investors have no idea how to construct a stock portfolio, most have no idea when to buy and sell, and most have no idea how much to invest in the first place.) They can give it to professionals to invest. Trillions of dollars are invested this way.(Unfortunately most professionals actually underperform the market averages over time. In fact,it may be even harder to pick good professional managers than it is to pick good individual stocks.) They can invest in traditional index funds. Trillions of dollars are also invested this way.(The problem is that investing this way is seriously flawed--and almost a guarantee of subpar investment returns over time.) They can read The Big Secret for the Small Investor and do something else. Not much is invested this way. Yet.... Let top hedge fund manager, Columbia business school professor, former Fortune 500 chairman and New York Times best-selling author Joel Greenblatt take you on a journey that will reveal the Big Secret for both individual and professional investors. Based on path-breaking new research, find out how anyone can beat the market, the index funds and the experts by following a new approach that relies on the principles of value investing, common sense and quantitative discipline. Along the way, learn where ´´value´´ comes from, how markets work, and what really happens on Wall Street. By journey´s end, small investors (and even not-so-small investors) will have found their way to some excellent new investment choices. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Grupper.

There´s a secret world of investing controlled by angel investors and venture capital. One investment has been the secret of the wealthy for more than 80 years. It accounts for nearly a fifth of the wealth for million-dollar investors and nearly four times the return compared to stocks. Investing in startups has led to an average 27 percent return for wealthy investors, nearly four times the average 7.4 percent annual return on stocks over the decade to 2013. When asked where they invested their money, investors with an average of $7.6 million told BNP Wealth Management those alternative investments like venture capital and startups were their second-largest investment after their own business. Consider Peter Thiel´s 2004 investment of $500,000 in Facebook as its first outside investor. By the time the rest of us could invest in Facebook, Thiel had already made $1.7 billion for a 340,000 percent return on his investment. Welcome to the world of startup investing and equity crowdfunding. I´ve spent nearly a decade analyzing startup investments for venture capital firms and angel investors. I set up the research department for one venture capital investor and managed a team of six analysts, poring over pitch material and market research to find the best startups in which to invest. Investing in startups is like nothing you´ve ever seen in the stock market. These companies aren´t covered by analysts, and you won´t find a P/E value on Yahoo Finance. You won´t hear other venture capital investors or angel investors sharing their process or picks on TV either. They don´t want you stealing those 27 percent annual returns. That´s what this book is all about, using a process I have developed over years as a venture capital analyst to avoid the risks in startup investing and find the best deals. It´s not an easy process. It involves research and strategic planning on your part. I´m ready to sha 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph Hogue.

I have been a property investor for over 18 years and I am here to help you solve the puzzle of property investment. My original intent in creating this book was to provide a guide for members of my family and close friends. By listening to this book, they will be better equipped to navigate the property market without relying on the expertise of outsiders who are often motivated by their own personal goals. I wanted those who are close to me to receive excellent advice from someone who has their best interests at heart, coupled with a wealth of experience and a proven track record of successfully investing in the property market through several differing economic climates. After much contemplation, I realized that this book could also be of huge benefit to other people who wish to learn about property investing, to start investing or to improve their results from property investing. This realization led me to write this book for a much wider audience. My goal is to help individuals gain more awareness about this industry and ultimately achieve their own definition of success. One of my main objectives is to help others avoid mistakes that could stunt their growth in the property industry. When I started out, I also needed guidance so I sought the help of others but there was no one I could trust or who had the knowledge to show me the best path to take. When taking out my very first mortgage I was advised by the lender´s mortgage advisor to take out an endowment mortgage based on his assessment of my appetite for risk. Endowments were described to me as a savings pot and when making mortgage payments you would pay the interest on the loan and also pay an amount in to the pot that would be invested into steadily growing shares that would pay off the mortgage quicker than a repayment mortgage under normal circumstances. 1.
