Recent data from Forrester Research shows that about 60 percent of current investors do not use financial advisors and 30 percent of investors visit their advisors infrequently. Whether the market is up or down, more and more investors are taking their investments into their own hands and are creating significant portfolios for more than just their retirement. As investors take more control of their finances, they find themselves at a distinct disadvantage to the professionals who have the asset allocation, portfolio analysis, and management tools to guide them through the entire investment process. Streetsmart Guide to Managing Your Portfolio shows investors how to use those tools to determine what to invest in, what their portfolio risk level is, and the asset allocation required to meet their specific financial goals. From finding the right type of asset for your portfolio to managing your investment's risk level, this book provides a practical, hands-on approach to managing your own investments to reach your financial goals. What Grinhold and Kahn's Active Portfolio Management is to the professional investor, this book is for the individual investor.
Grounded in portfolio theory, Streetsmart Guide to Managing Your Portfolio shares the strategies the pros use and walks the investor through the full process of personal portfolio management. From tactical asset allocation to market timing analysis, this book provides the individual investor with reliable ideas to improve portfolio performance. Until recently, the sophisticated portfolio analysis tools of the Wall Street wizards were reserved for the financial professional. Streetsmart Guide to Managing Your Portfolio presents these tools in an easy-to-use and understandable manner so that individual investors can: Define and modify their financial goals based on their own personal needs; Effectively plan and implement their own investment portfolio; Monitor and analyze their investments for minimum risk and maximum returns; Just as with Bernstein's The Intelligent Asset Allocator, this book has broad appeal among individual investors ready to take charge of their investments.
While Bernstein's book focuses specifically on asset allocation, Streetsmart Guide to Managing Your Portfolio goes beyond asset allocation, providing a comprehensive approach to managing your entire investment portfolio.
