There´s never been a better time to be an ordinary investor. With more opportunities, lower costs, and a more level playing field than ever before, the individual really can go head-to-head with the professionals. But there remains one big difference between Wall Street (or the Square Mile) and the individual investor: technique and experience. Superinvestors provides both in a new way. Based on MoneyWeek´s popular ´´Great Investors in History´´ column, it takes an in-depth look at 20 of the best investors in the last 200 years and shows the listener how to copy them. These investors have been picked for a variety of criteria, including their investing excellence, the different ways in which they made money - and, above all, for what they can teach individual investors. Investors representing a wide range of investment styles are included - ranging from David Ricardo, who made a fortune by correctly predicting the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo, to the patient value-orientated approach of Warren Buffett. The book also looks at some of the innovators, including John Bogle´s development of index funds as a low-cost way of getting exposure to the market and David Harding´s data-driven approach that aims to avoid human emotion. The book then looks at each of the investors´ careers in depth. This includes their background, the strategies that they used to beat their peers and an honest evaluation of their success, using a special star ranking system. Naturally, the main focus is on their best investments. However, sometimes failures can be extremely instructive - and the book looks at those investments that didn´t quite go to plan. Finally, each chapter concludes by detailing the lessons that ordinary investors can learn from them. Superinvestors is a treasure trove of success stories, cautionary tales, legendary stock picks and world-beating strategies that will fascinate and inspire investors of every level. 1.

This audiobook is a re-publication of a blog I started in the depths of the Great Recession in March 2011. During that time, as I agonized over investing, saving, and potential job loss, I developed an investment philosophy I dubbed the ´´Financial Fortress” and wrote a series of posts about it along with other posts about specific asset classes, investment strategies and related topics. My two biggest successes have been in real estate and precious metals. During the Great Recession, I made some aggressive moves, using retirement savings, to purchase distressed condominiums in Orange County, California. In addition to enjoying positive cash flow while I owned the properties, I have just completed one sale and have a second one in escrow, doubling my money in five years. I also made an aggressive move into silver (US Silver Eagle coins) to watch them triple in value, at which time I sold individual rolls on EBay and kept the rest for future appreciation. The essence of the Financial Fortress is that as savers and investors, we need to first have a strong defense before we can have a strong offense. As volatility in world markets seems to worsen each year and booms/busts become more intense, preservation of capital is paramount but so is finding opportunities to leverage what we have in order to grow our wealth. 1.
