´´ Man kann Der amerikanische Investor einfach als herrliche Kiezgeschichte lesen, die mit leicht absurden Einfällen und Spott dem eigenen Erzähler gegenüber, der Bremer recht ähnlich scheint, nicht spart. Man kann sie aber auch verstehen als grundsätzlichen, exakt beobachteten Text über die Schwierigkeiten als Tagträumer, Vater, Ehemann und freischaffender Autor am Rande des Prekariats.´´ Spiegel online
The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham´s philosophy of ´´value investing´´-which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies-has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949. Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham´s strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham´s original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today´s market, draws parallels between Graham´s examples and today´s financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham´s principles. Vital and indispensable, The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.
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.
