The Intelligent Portfolio : Practical Wisdom on Personal Investing from Financial Engines
The Intelligent Portfolio draws upon the extensive insights of Financial Engines--a leading provider of investment advisory and management services founded by Nobel Prize-winning economist William F. Sharpe--to reveal the time-tested institutional investing techniques that you can use to help improve your investment performance. Throughout these pages, Financial Engines' CIO, Christopher Jones, uses state-of-the-art simulation and optimization methods to demonstrate the often-surprising results of applying modern financial economics to personal investment decisions.
"The irreverence [Jones] displays toward history as a predictor for investment is one of dozens of viewpoints that fly in the face of conventional portfolio-building wisdom." --The Star-Telegram
"A very comprehensive book which covers risk versus rewards, past performance versus future expected returns, market timing versus long term investing, and investing in individual stocks versus investing in mutual funds. He also discusses diversification, fees and expenses, and the tax consequences of investing. All of his recommendations are backed up with extensive research and presented in an easy-to-understand manner."--Stockerblog
