Asset Allocation: Balancing Financial Risk, Fifth Edition: Balancing Financial Risk, Fifth Edition (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

The Definitive Guide to Strategic Asset AllocationUniting theory and practice–the art and science of asset allocation

Investors long to beat the market, and money managers accept that as their mandate. The sad reality is that most money managers underperform the market, and individualinvestors do even worse. Investors also face emotional challenges. The irrational exuberance of the 1990s, for instance, can as easily derail a sensible investment strategy as the market panic accompanying the GlobalFinancial Crisis.

Since Roger Gibson wrote the first edition of this book over 25 years ago, his multiple-assetclass investment approach has given investors a disciplined strategy for mitigating risks and realizing their financial goals through widely varying market environments.

Grounded in the principles of modern portfolio theory, this fi fth edition of his investing classic explains how and why asset allocation works. Gibson demonstrates how adding new asset classes to a portfolio improves its risk-adjusted returns and how strategic asset allocation uses,rather than fights, the forces of the capital markets to achieve fi nancial success.

New topics in this edition include:

  • The success of multiple-asset-class investing during the stock market’s “lost decade”
  • Methods for forecasting long-term asset class returns and the limitations of prediction
  • The dangers of market timing and the challenges involved in tactical asset allocation strategies–with insights from the field of behavioral finance
  • Observations from the Global SIDONI Financial Crisis of 2008 and what it means for the multiple-asset-classinvestor

With more than three decades of experience managing clients’ portfolios and expectations, Gibson underscores the importance of identifying and working through the emotional and psychological traps that impede investment success.

Join the quarter-century trend of Asset Allocation providing investors with a sound approach to financial well-being.

PRAISE FOR ASSET ALLOCATION:

“Roger Gibson has revolutionized the way financial advisors assemble portfolios for their clients. He is, without a doubt, the best and most articulate voice on the subject of asset allocation today.” — DON PHILLIPS, President, Investment Research, Morningstar, Inc.

“[Gibson’s book] should be of enormous benefit to the investor seeking the proper decision-making process. I congratulate [him] for treating the asset allocation subject in such depth and bringing this issue, which is the critical investment issue for all investors, to the forefront. It is the best overall piece of work I have seen.” — GARY P. BRINSON, President and CEO, GP Brinson Investments

“I always look forward to each new edition of Roger Gibson’s (now with Christopher Sidoni) asset allocation book. The extensive data is updated with new chapters on the financial crisis and forecasting. This practical book focuses on meeting investor objectives in a risky world.” — ROGER G. IBBOTSON, Yale Professor, Chairman of Zebra Capital Management, Founder of Ibbotson Associates, now a Morningstar Company

“Roger Gibson’s book should be a ‘go-to’ resource for every serious financial advisor.” — JOHN D. ROGERS, CFA, President and Chief Executive Officer, CFA Institute

“The author balances a solid, understandable, and logical grasp of investment knowledge with an obvious input of practical experience. If all investment advisors would read and understand this book, clients would be far better off.” — DARWIN M. BAYSTON, CFA, Past President and CEO, The Association for Investment Management Research

Don’t Blame the Shorts: Why Short Sellers Are Always Blamed for Market Crashes and How History Is Repeating Itself (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

Listed in Bloomberg‘s TOP 50 BUSINESS BOOKS OF 2010 and shortlisted for Spear’s FINANCIAL HISTORY OF THE YEAR AWARD

“Robert Sloan works in the hedge-fund industry. As he shows in this readable polemic, dislike of shorting has a long history. . . . Someone has to point out when the emperor has no clothes. The shorts were among the biggest skeptics of the subprime-mortgage boom and of the banks that financed it. And when they were proved right, their activities were banned. Gratitude, huh?”
The Economist

“If Robert Sloan manages to go the distance in Don’t Blame the Shorts, it is because his book is as much about historical tensions between Washington and Wall Street as the practice of short selling. He puts it all in the context of the opposing views of the federalist Alexander Hamilton, who was pro-speculation, and Jeffersonian republicans, who were pro-agriculture and convinced that making money from money was nonsense. . . . His book is a useful corrective to the view of short selling as ‘unpatriotic’ or uniquely antisocial . . . it is a brave act to take on anti-finance populists at this time.”
Financial Times

“In this knowing book about the business of short-selling stocks, financier Robert Sloan gives a modern day lesson on why we shouldn’t shoot the messenger. . . Rather than blast short sellers, we should praise them for exposing management methane. . . .The story may be old, but Sloan’s easy and informative writing makes for a thoroughly worthwhile update.”
Barron’s

“Bob Sloan, a Wall Street veteran, cites the confrontation in his new book, Don’t Blame the Shorts, as evidence that blind fury from politicians and unrepentant shrugs from bankers are far from new. As the title suggests, Sloan’s main thrust is to defend the practice of short-selling. . . . Today, Sloan says, the very same battle of ideas is being played out in America . . . this is just the latest bitter expression of the constant tension between a moneyed east coast financial elite, and the manufacturers, mom-and-pop shops and the scrappy entrepreneurs who bitterly resent the power of Wall Street-but don’t want the cash taps to be turned off.”
The Observer

“Timely, concise, accessible to the lay reader and with a decorously polemical edge, it is both revealing and entertaining. No matter what the politicians do, the markets will find a way to challenge the finaglers and the optimists who sustain them. Like the poor, the shorts will always be with us.”
Spear’s

“Post-crisis reading . . . best books on the financial crisis and its aftermath. . . . While other authors point accusing fingers, in his book, Don’t Blame the Shorts, Robert Sloan leaps to the defense of short sellers who, as he describes, have been long scapegoated for market crashes and are once again in the wake of the recent crisis. The Dutch East India Company was blaming its troubles on them as far back as 1609.”
Economist.com

“This book is a rare treat. Unlike most books about Wall Street, it is written from a perspective sympathetic to the banking and securities industries. Better still, Bob Sloan is not only a practitioner and market participant himself, but one with a fine sense of history. Sloan rightly describes prime brokerage as ‘the largest, most unnoticed banking system in the word.'”
Global Custodian

“Short and to the point and very well researched. As we are living in an era of history repeating itself, Mr. Sloan depicts the negative market psychology that has transcended Wall Street since the birth of our nation.”
Instablog

“Sloan’s recent book…provides an excellent survey of the shorting debate. Sloan recounts how a succession of U.S. government agencies have enacted rules over the decades to restrain short sellers-usually i

Intelligent Commodity Indexing: A Practical Guide to Investing in Commodities

THE SECRETS TO CAPITALIZING ON THE COMMODITIES BOOM

In the mid-1970s, when Bob Greer scrolled through miles of microfilm in the basement of a public library in order to record commodity prices in his yellow legal pad, the idea of commodities being an investable asset class was way outside the mainstream. Now, it’s a multibilliondollar vehicle for achieving portfolio diversification and inflation hedging–and he and his colleagues have written the book on earning better returns than the indexes themselves!

In Intelligent Commodity Indexing, Bob joins his fellow leaders of PIMCO’s Commodity Practice, Nic Johnson and Mihir Worah, in opening up commodity indexes. Never before has there been a more thorough explanation of how a commodity index works coupled with a powerful set of strategies for making it work for you. Inside, you’ll find the most up-to-date tools and time-proven best practices for earning “structural alpha” by capitalizing on recurring risk and liquidity premiums in the commodities markets. It offers the right amount of history and theory to reinforce cuttingedge techniques for:

  • Interpreting how seasonal effects change risk premia
  • Choosing the most profitable market for specific commodity exposure
  • Using intelligent commodity indexing to collect risk premiums in the options market
  • Maximizing roll yield in order to increase long-term returns
  • Managing risk, including specific frameworks and systems

Investors gain a superior advantage with this book’s coverage of the nuts-and-bolts workings of various markets.

Praise for Intelligent Commodity Indexing

“A seminal work on an asset class that has grown in importance within institutional portfolios. The authors offer considerable insight to this complex asset class and provide investors with a thorough examination of the drivers of risk and return.” — Julia K. Bonafede, CFA, President of Wilshire Consulting

“This is an excellent guide for professional investors to successful investing in commodity indexes.” — Blythe Masters, Head of Global Commodities, JP Morgan

“A manual written by successful practitioners for intelligent commodity investors. An excellent guide which explains how this asset class complements and interacts with other investments.” — Alan H. Van Noord, CFA, Chief Investment Officer, Pennsylvania Public School Employees’ Retirement System

“Commodities are invaluable tools for investors wishing to benefit from diversification and inflation hedging. For such an investor, this is the authoritative source to all you need to know about commodity indexing.” — Mark Makepeace, Chief Executive, FTSE Group

“Greer, Johnson, and Worah simply explain the critical drivers to commodity index returns that have provided the main historical benefits of diversification and inflation protection. Every commodity index investor, or hopeful investor, should read this book and use it as a guide for evaluating the relevant index characteristics for benchmarking and investing, especially given recent industry innovations.” — Jodie Gunzberg, CFA, Director-Commodities, S&P Indexes

The Finance Book: Understand the numbers even if you’re not a finance professional

THE KNOWLEDGE AND TOOLS EVERY PROFESSIONAL NEEDS, TO MAKE BETTER FINANCIAL AND BUSINESS DECISIONS.

Why this book is different to other finance books:
• Quick and easy to use
• Spotlights “what you need to know”
• Requires no prior finance knowledge
• Practical and real-world focus
• Written by practitioners

No knowledge required

The book is purposefully designed to be quick and easy to use with no previous knowledge required to comprehend the concepts. We “tell you what you need to know” to quickly “get up to speed” in core finance concepts.

A key feature of this book is that you do not have read it from cover to cover to make sense of finance. Each chapter is written as a “standalone” topic.  This enables you to dip in and dip out of chapters. Further, we have taken otherwise complex topics and broken them down into key concepts that are explained in concise, easy to read sections.

Practitioners not academics

Whilst not an academic book, it is also not a “simplistic” book.  It is a practical book because it has been written by practitioners. We include throughout this book our first-hand personal experiences gained from working in businesses across many industries and sectors, rather than replicating knowledge from academia.

In addition, the authors have spent countless hours instructing, teaching and training thousands of professionals from disciplines including marketing, sales, production, administration, HR and legal.

Focused on business application

The overwhelming majority of finance books available are better suited to trainee accountants because they take an academic approach to finance.  Whilst necessary for accountants, they immerse the reader in the “detail”.

The Finance Book is written for non-finance people like you. It is aimed at those who work or aspire to work in business.

It will help professionals in business or thinking about a career in business including board directors, business managers, MBA students, graduates and undergraduates.

Your book, your journey

To make the book easy to read, we have used a consistent format across chapters. Within each chapter there are multiple cross references (and links) to other relevant chapters as they occur. This will enable you to review chapters and make connections relevant to you. Allow your curiosity to determine your path through the book.

Give Me the Money and I’ll Shoot!: Finance your Factual TV/Film Project (Methuen Drama Modern Plays)

The must-have guide to traditional, emerging and creative TV funding models that are being developed and exploited by social media-savvy documentary filmmakers.

Each chapter covers a different form of funding and combines advice from industry insiders – producers, buyers, specialist media agencies and corporate funding bodies – and entertaining case studies that illustrate the benefits and pitfalls of each method. With practical tips, case studies and advice it reveals what grantors, brands and NGOs are looking for in a pitch (they all have different needs and expectations), and the cultural differences that can trip up the unwary producer.

Funding examples range from blue-chip TV documentaries, such as Planet Earth, which was co-funded by the BBC, Discovery NHK and CBC to The TV Book Club (More 4), which is funded by Specsavers opticians; to Lemonade Movie, which harnessed the power of Twitter to source free equipment and post-production resources.

Readers will discover: the difference between co-productions, pre-sales and acquisitions; how to develop and pitch advertiser funded programming; the new rules on product placement; where to hunt for foundation and grant funding and how to fill in those fiendish application forms; the power of crowd-funding and how to harness the internet; how to sniff out grants and funds held in non-film focused organisations such as the Wellcome Trust; why corporations are keen to fund your documentary and how to get them to part with their money without giving up your editorial control.

Benjamin Graham and the Power of Growth Stocks: Lost Growth Stock Strategies from the Father of Value Investing

Use a master’s lost secret to pick growth companies bound for success

In 1948, legendary Columbia University professor Benjamin Graham bought a major stake in the Government Employees Insurance Corporation.

Through conversational explanations, real-world case studies, and pragmatic formulas, it shows you step-by-step how this enlightened trading philosophy is successful.

  • Liberate your money from the needs of mutual funds and brokers

  • Estimate a company’s future value in four easy steps

Saving Capitalism From Short-Termism: How to Build Long-Term Value and Take Back Our Financial Future

Conquering the obession with short-term profits is critical to the future of business, society, and capitalism itself—Alfred Rappaport presents a game plan every business leader should read

 

“As Rappaport keeps on speaking out for the realities surrounding investment and speculation, our society will profit as it builds on his keen insights.”

John C. Bogle, founder of The Vanguard Group (from the Foreword)

 

About the Book:

 

Alfred Rappaport, who first introduced the principles and practical application of “shareholder value” in his groundbreaking 1986 classic Creating Shareholder Value, reiterated the basic message in his 2006 Harvard Business Review article: Focusing on Wall Street quarterly earnings expectations rather than on creating long-term value is an invitation to disaster.

 

Rappaport shows how deeply flawed short-term performance incentives for corporate and investment managers were an essential cause of the recent global financial crisis. In Saving Capitalism from Short-Termism, Rappaport examines the causes and consequences of “short-termism” and offers specific recommendations for how publicly traded companies and the investment management community can overcome it.

 

Whether you’re a corporate manager, money manager, public policymaker, business-school student, or simply concerned about your financial future, Saving Capitalism from Short-Termism provides valuable insights and practical ideas to change the course of your organization—and contribute to a healthier economy that benefits all.

Security Analysis: The Classic 1934 Edition (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

Rare is the opportunity to see, much less own, an original. But this unusual, carefully crafted reproduction of Benjamin Graham and David Dodd’s immortal Security Analysis gives you that chance–to read and treasure a true classic–the book that gave birth to value investing.

Continuously in print through five editions, for more than 60 years, and through nearly a million copies, the primer for many of America’s most illustrious investors–and the wellspring of Graham and Dodd’s Wall Street Immortality–Security Analysis is indisputably the most influential book on investing ever written. Still the investors’ bible, it’s as frequently consulted today as it was when it first appeared in 1934.

Of course, over the years and over five editions, Security Analysis changed. Its language was modernized. New material was added. Metaphors and examples were brought up to date. In the light of changing times, these alterations were necessary and appropriate.

But what of the original book? The very durability of this work arouses our curiosity. And what we discover when we return to the original is very simply a classic, a work whose uncompromising worth has not paled since it first saw the light of day in 1934.

The original words of Benjamin Graham and David Dodd–put to paper not long after the disastrous Stock Market Crash of 1929–still have the mesmerizing qualities of rigorous honesty and diligent scrutiny, the same riveting power of disciplined thought and determined logic that gave the work its first distinction and began its illustrious career.

The words you will read here are eloquent. Not only a financial genius and a man of high repute for honorable dealings, Graham was a man of letters invited to teach in the literature department at Columbia University (as well as in the economics and philosophy departments).

But this reproduction is far more than a historical curiosity, an interesting object, and a delightful read. It presents the original Graham/Dodd method of investing–told in their own words as they first described it in the 1930s.

What exactly is this method that has drawn such longterm devotion in the notably fickle reaches of Wall Street?

Graham and Dodd were Wall Street’s first bargain shoppers. In this book they first explain their methods for locating bonds and stocks “which are selling well below the levels apparently justified by a careful analysis of the relevant facts.” In this book, they tell you precisely how to find these undervalued securities and analyze those “relevant facts.”

Are these methods still practical and usable today? The great fortunes created by value investors Warren Buffett, Mario Gabelli, John Neff, Michael Price, and John Bogle testify that they certainly are.

In their preface to this book, Graham and Dodd write that they hope their work “will stand the test of the ever enigmatic future.” There is no doubt that it has.

This distinctively wrought book is a careful reproduction of the 1934 edition, containing every word of the original.

Operations Due Diligence: An M&A Guide for Investors and Business (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

The missing link to determining a company’s real value

Most people at the M&A table know how to carry out financial and legal due diligence. Only the accomplished investors come prepared with an in-depth understanding of the complete due diligence process. Operations Due Diligence is a game-changing guide for investors who need a fully accurate determination on the sustainability of a business.

Written by a hands-on operations executive who has successfully implemented process improvement programs at large and small businesses, this practical guidebook sets itself apart by providing a step-by-step strategy for analyzing the toughest area of a business to assess: its operations.

Unlike financial and legal due diligence, there were no principles such as law and accounting to guide operations due diligence-until now. This turnkey approach, based on a pragmatic series of almost 400 questions, helps you accurately assess the infrastructures of a business’s customer satisfaction, production, information management, sales and marketing, organization, and personnel, as well as its finances and legal operations. For managers and business owners looking to improve the sustainability of their business, this guided inquiry serves as a thorough operations checklist to next-level performance.

Whether you are an investor trying to capture a new opportunity with minimal risk or an executive struggling to improve your business, Operations Due Diligence gives you a distinct advantage by:

  • Going a step further than most books and illustrating how to analyze your discoveries
  • Using historic examples to make the lessons both understandable and memorable
  • Clearly explaining how and why each sector is an important indicator of the long-term sustainability of a business
  • Conveniently locating infrastructure summary questions at the end of chapters for quick reference
  • Providing a document checklist so nothing gets overlooked at the negotiating table

The highest-valued companies and their investors know that producing the best products and services isn’t enough. Survival depends on continually improving infrastructure through Operations Due Diligence.

No Bull

When the official history of twentieth–century Wall Street is written, it will certainly contain more than a few pages on Michael Steinhardt. One of the most successful money managers in the history of “The Street,” Steinhardt far outshone his peers by achieving an average annual return of over thirty percent–significantly greater than that of every market benchmark. During his almost thirty–year tenure as a hedge fund manager, he amassed vast wealth for his investors and himself. One dollar invested with Steinhardt Partners L.P., his flagship hedge fund, at its inception in 1967 would have been worth $462 when he retired from active money management in 1995.

No Bull offers an account of some of the investment strategies that drove Michael Steinhardt′s historic success as a hedge fund manager including a focus on his skills as an industry analyst and consummate stock picker. He also reveals how his uncanny talent for knowing when to trade against the prevailing market trend–a talent that was not always appreciated by several erstwhile high–profile clients–resulted in many of his greatest successes. Here he provides detailed accounts of some of his most sensational coups–including his momentous decision, in 1981, to stake everything on bonds–and his equally sensational failures, such as his disastrous foray into global macro–trading in the mid–1990s.

At the same time, No Bull is the rags–to–riches story of a boy from Bensonhurst and his rise from the streets of Brooklyn to the heights of Wall Street. In a thoroughly engaging narrative, Steinhardt relates the early influences that shaped his attitudes toward life and success, as well as the beginning of his love affair with stock investing. Further, he chronicles his dawning awareness of the need for a purpose in life beyond the acquisition of wealth and how it led to his decision to retire and redirect his energies. We learn about his experiences as the chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council for nearly a decade, as well as his innovative thinking and ambitious projects to strengthen the Jewish community.

The inspiring true story of a Wall Street genius and world–class philanthropist, No Bull is an unforgettable read for finance professionals and students of human nature alike.
Michael Steinhardt is one of the most successful money managers in the history of Wall Street. He is also widely known for his philanthropic activities, particularly in the Jewish community–most notably as cofounder with Charles Bronfman of birthright israel, a program whose mission is to provide a free educational opportunity for every young Jewish person of the Diaspora to visit Israel.

Behavioral Investment Management: An Efficient Alternative to Modern Portfolio Theory

Behavioral Investment Management proves what many have been thinking since the global economic downturn: Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) is no longer a viable portfolio management strategy. Inherently flawed and based largely on ideology, MPT can not be relied upon in modern markets.

Behavioral Investment Management offers a new approach-one addresses certain realities that MPT ignores, including the fact that emotions play a major role in investing. The authors lay out new standards reflecting behavioral finance and dynamic asset allocation, then explain how to apply these standards to your current portfolio construction efforts. They explain how to move away from the idealized, black-and-white world of MPT and into the real world of investing–placing heavy emphasis on the importance of mastering emotions.

Behavioral Investment Management provides a portfolio-management standard for an investing world in disarray.

PART 1- The Current Paradigm: MPT (Modern Portfolio Theory); Chapter 1: Modern Portfolio Theory as it Stands; Chapter 2: Challenges to MPT: Theoretical-the assumptions are not thus; Chapter 3: Challenges to MPT: Empirical-the world is not thus; Chapter 4: Challenges to MPT: Behavioural-people are not thus; Chapter 5: Describing the Overall Framework: Investors and Investments; PART 2- Amending MPT: Getting to BMPT; Chapter 1:Investors-The Rational Investor; Chapter 2: Investments-Extracting Value from the long-term; Chapter 3: Investments-Extracting Value from the short-term; Chapter 4: bringing it together, the new BMPT paradigm; PART 3- Emotional Insurance: Sticking with the Journey; Chapter 1: Investors- the emotional investor; Chapter 2: Investments- Constraining the rational portfolio; PART 4- Practical Implications; Chapter 1: The BMPT and Wealth Management; Chapter 2: The BMPT and the Pension Industry; Chapter 3: The BMPT and Asset Managemen

Benjamin Graham on Investing: Enduring Lessons from the Father of Value Investing

“They laid out a road map for investing that I have now been following for 57 years. There’s been no reason to look for another.”
—Warren Buffett, on the writings of Benjamin Graham

Legendary investing author and philosopher Benjamin Graham lived through interesting times. Soon after his graduation from Columbia College, the nation entered the First World War. As the stock market fluctuated in wild dips and peaks, the government seized control of the railroad industry, inflation and interest rates rose dramatically, and economic depression loomed on the horizon.

During these events—and perhaps inspired by them—Graham began writing articles for The Magazine of Wall Street, putting to paper his earliest ideas on value investing and security analysis.

For the first time, these important works have been anthologized into a single volume. Benjamin Graham on Investing is a treasure trove of rare and out-of-print articles that document the early flashes of genius from a man whose ideas and theories would revolutionize investment philosophy and inspire the careers of such luminaries as Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman, Charlie Munger, and countless other top-tier investors.

The early works of Benjamin Graham have never been as relevant as they are today. The world’s markets are undergoing changeon a scale not unlike that of Graham’s era. David Darst, one of the world’s most respected experts on asset allocation, provides insightful analyses connecting Graham’s articles to events today.

,i>Benjamin Graham on Investing is a timeless classic that continues to have relevance more than 30 years after the author’s death.

EVA and Value-Based Management: A Practical Guide to Implementation (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

This book provides real-world guidelines for implementing EVA. Today’s most comprehensive and unbiased evaluation of Value-Based Management and EVA Economic Value Added (EVA) and Value Based Management (VBM), despite persistent claims to the contrary, are not magic wands, guaranteeing instant success. Instead, they are a set of management tools – powerful tools, to be sure, proven to work in case after case – for creating and augmenting shareholder value. And as with any tools, users will achieve the greatest success only by learning and understanding both their strengths and weaknesses.”EVA and Value Based Management” is the first book to fully explain all sides of EVA and VBM, and cover the critical factors in harnessing EVA and VBM to build shareholder value. It provides in-depth coverage of the key steps in implementing EVA, including: determining your cost of capital; using accounting adjustments to make EVA a better measure of performance; identifying value drivers to guide performance improvement; and, tying management compensation to EVA.The sustained creation of shareholder value doesn’t happen by accident – it happens because companies plan for it. Let “EVA and Value Based Management” give you the clear, concise, and up-to-date information you need on EVA and VBM – what they are, why they work, and how they can work for you – and then show you how to use that information to reach your own informed conclusions. Managers – even those from just a quarter century ago – would have a difficult time recognizing today’s business climate.In the new world order, companies must prove their worth in both commercial markets (making and selling the best products and ideas) and capital markets (creating value through optimal use of all available resources, all the time). Those that fall behind in either pursuit will find the climb to market leadership difficult if not impossible. “EVA and Value Based Management” is the first book to frankly and comprehensively discuss the pros and cons of Economic Value Added (EVA) and Value Based Management (VBM) – proven in numerous cases to increase shareholder value while strengthening organizations in which they are successfully implemented. Written by award-winning INSEAD professor S. David Young and leading management expert Stephen F.O ‘ Byrne, it covers both conceptual and implementation issues, placing a strong emphasis on performance measurement, value drivers, and management compensation.Look to “EVA and Value Based Management” for: a clear explanation of the concepts behind EVA and VBM; a highly practical guide to implementing EVA for performance measurement and incentive compensation, with dozens of real world examples; an honest assessment of the pros and cons of EVA and competing value-based approaches; and, a frank discussion of the company characteristics that help or hinder successful EVA implementation, helping you to decide whether EVA and VBM are right for your organization.Many prominent corporate leaders have long proclaimed – and, even more significant, put to the real-world test – the benefits of EVA. In “EVA and Value Based Management”, management experts S. David Young and Stephen F. O’Byrne define and discuss EVA, then present a simple, easy-to-understand approach for determining how it will succeed in your organization. The result is an all-inclusive, no-holds-barred overview of value-based management and EVA – and today’s most valuable, practical guidebook for implementing a highly effective, performance driven management program.

What was once a fringe currency only used by a dark corner of the web… is now the fastest growing financial asset on Earth.

And this is just the beginning…

You see, we are still in just the 2nd inning of Bitcoin as a financial entity.

So while no financial vehicle is making people rich as quickly as Bitcoin…

Less than 10% of Americans and 2% of the worldwide population owns it.

But now, the major players are taking an interest.

Like Billionaire Hedge Fund owner Paul Tudor Jones

Internet pioneer Tim Draper, who was an early investor in companies like Hotmail, Tesla and Robinhood.

And CEO of Social Capital, Chamath Palihapitiya, who predicts Bitcoin will be worth $1 million within the next 15 years.

So even if you’ve been unconvinced thus far, this book will give you the straight facts on Bitcoin as a financial asset… without any of the hype or noise.

  • 5 Billionaires who believe Bitcoin has a part to play in the world economy – Page 16
  • Is Bitcoin a legitimate currency? Answered on page 32
  • A simple way to automate your Bitcoin purchases so you can take advantage of dollar cost averaging – Page 66
  • The exact percentage of Bitcoin transactions that are used for illegal activities. Anti-Bitcoiners get this wrong all the time – Page 51
  • Why you should never use Robinhood to buy Bitcoin – Page 70
  • The downside of purchasing Bitcoin funds like GBTC – Page 71
  • How much of your portfolio should you dedicate to Bitcoin? Our “one size fits all” solution is on page 102

 

Plus free video tutorials for safely buying and storing Bitcoin on Page 7

This is not a 600 page theoretical book which you need a math degree to understand. Written in plain English and free from repetitive technical jargon. Every single piece of financial and technical terminology is clearly defined inside.

You’ll find easy-to-follow advice in how to buy and store Bitcoin yourself… without having to pay expensive fees to middlemen.

For everyone who feels frustrated after watching Bitcoin soar in price… this is your chance to get in while the going is good.

And not feel like you missed the boat…

PRIVATE SECTOR BY HEAD PUBLIC SECTOR BY HEART – Full of guidance and observations from experienced commercial and procurement professionals

Private Sector by Head, Public Sector by Heart is an engaging, exciting, entertaining procurement book full of guidance and observations from experienced commercial and procurement professionals.

Since Covid-19 exploded upon us, it has changed how we buy goods, services and works, as well as how the supply chain is viewed. Globally, public sector procurement has been at the forefront of the Covid-19 response, which makes this book even more insightful and imperative.

In the world of accountancy, two plus two has always been four, and always will be, whereas the way the ‘four’ is spent will depend upon volatile market forces and is dynamic by its very nature. That is why commercial activity and procurement are both exciting and the only elements that executives have any real power to change. Properly developed commercial acumen goes far beyond mere numbers and balance sheets. It seeks to ensure outcomes that deliver the most benefit to all aspects of the business.

This book is not a textbook about procurement; instead, it is a handrail, full of insight from experienced commercial professionals with a passion for sharing their learning. While some chapters focus on topics that will be most relevant to procurement professionals, most chapters examine a topic from multiple viewpoints, encouraging readers to consider procurement from the view of Chief Executive, internal customer, contract manager and the ultimate contract beneficiary.

Because markets are constantly shifting, this book introduces topics that are ever-present in a changing environment and points to the latest evolving thinking on them.

If you rely on the provision of any goods, works or services, either to complete your role or provide a service to your customers, this is the book for you.

Inside the Mind of the Turtles: How the World’s Best Traders Master Risk

“I like risk. I embrace risk.” -Turtle trader Curtis Faith

 

Risk is scary, to be sure, but it’s a fundamental aspect of the investing world. Without it, profit would not exist. The trick is to accept, anticipate, manage, and mitigate risk. In other words, master it.

 

In Way of the Turtle, Curtis Faith revealed the extraordinarily successful trading system of the now-famous group of investors known as the Turtles. Now, in this highly anticipated follow up to that bestseller, Faith delves deeply into the risk-mastery strategies that made the Turtles the envy of the investing world.

 

Inside the Mind of the Turtles provides expert insight into how great traders combat the natural but counterproductive response to risk. Faith begins by examining the nature of risk and the human being’s natural response to it. Then he outlines proven techniques for seizing control of it. You will learn how to:

 

  • Set your main focus on acquiring gains–not avoiding losses

 

  • Place equal importance on assets already spent and those still on hand

 

  • Judge the quality of decisions based on their inception rather than their outcome

 

  • Avoid drawing conclusions using too little information

 

You’ll find valuable advice not only from Faith, but from some of the greatest financial minds on the scene today, including fellow Turtle Jerry Parker, venture capitalist Simon Olson, and Howard Lindzon, founder of the popular Web site, “WallStrip.” Use their collective advice, and you’ll find yourself approaching risk in ways you never dreamed possible.

 

In today’s economy, controlling your aversion to risk is not just prudent–it’s an absolute necessity. Economic turbulence more often than not leads to poor investment decisions. Inside the Mind of the Turtles will help you conquer the fears that can cripple even the most experienced investors out there.

Bollinger on Bollinger Bands (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

‘All in all, “Bollinger on Bollinger Bands” is a gem…within 10 minutes of opening it, it went on my list of the five best technical analysis books ever’ – Active Trader. This is the first comprehensive traders’ guide to using Bollinger Bands from the man who created them. It includes a handy Bollinger Bands reference card. Over the past two decades, thousands of veteran traders have come to view Bollinger Bands as the most representative and reliable tool for assessing expected price action. Now, in the long-anticipated “Bollinger on Bollinger Bands”, John Bollinger himself explains how to use this extraordinary technique to effectively compare price and indicator movements.Traders can look to this techniques-oriented book for hundreds of valuable insights, including: analysis of the primary indicators derived from Bollinger Bands percentage b and BandWidth; how traders can use Bollinger Bands to work with instead of against commonly encountered trading patterns; strategic use of Bollinger Bands in short-, mid-, and long-term trading programs; three trading systems based on Bollinger Bands; and, the essence of successful investing is to determine when a stock’s price is too high or too low and then act accordingly. While John Bollinger would be the first to argue that no techniques exist for definitively determining these levels, “Bollinger on Bollinger Bands” presents an insider’s examination of the one tool that if its widespread popularity is an accurate judge of its effectiveness comes closer than anything else. Concise yet comprehensive, it is one of today’s truly indispensable investment guidebooks. ‘The purpose of this book is to help you avoid many of the common traps investors get caught in, including the buy-low, sell-high trap, where the investor buys only to watch the stock continue downward or sells only to watch the stock continue upward. Here, the traditional, emotional approach to the markets is replaced with a relative framework within which prices can be evaluated in a rigorous manner leading to a series of rational investment decisions without reference to absolute truths’ – From the Introduction.In the 1970s, market newcomer John Bollinger couldn’t find a system of investment analysis to fit his belief that all market events exist only in relation to one another and that there are no absolutes. So he created his own. That approach Rational Analysis led to the establishment of Bollinger Bands and ensured Bollinger’s spot in investment analysis history. Now, in “Bollinger on Bollinger Bands”, John Bollinger explains the market conditions that led to his initial discovery, and gives readers the inside story of the development and refinement of Bollinger Bands. He then goes on to present a relative decision framework built around Rational Analysis and Bollinger Bands, an extraordinarily powerful combination of technical and fundamental analysis that answers the question of whether prices are too high or too low for virtually any security or market environment.By understanding how to incorporate Bollinger’s techniques into their own investment strategy, investors will greatly increase their ability to ignore often-costly emotions and arrive at rational decisions supported by both the facts and the underlying market environment. “Bollinger on Bollinger Bands” provides: the first authoritative examination of this revolutionary technical analysis tool; three simple systems for implementing Bollinger Bands; and, innovative methods for clarifying patterns and analyzing time frames and moving averages.The key to effective investment analysis is to as much as possible eliminate emotion and approach each trade on its technical and fundamental merits alone. Since their introduction, few analytical techniques have helped investors do this better or more consistently than Bollinger Bands. “Bollinger on Bollinger Bands” provides tips, guidelines, and rules for incorporating the bands into virtually any investment strategy. It is a watershed book, written by the only man truly qualified to claim a comprehensive knowledge of the topic John Bollinger himself.

This is the perfect book for someone who has never used ETFs but wants to, or who now invests with ETFs but wants to do it better.” — Reid Steadman, Global Head of ETF Licensing, S&P Dow Jones Indices

“As a true master of the subject, Aniket simplifies the seemingly complex world of ETF investing to both Main Street investor and financial professional alike. He dispels the ‘old ways’ of investing and logically lays before the reader the reasons investors should be using ETFs versus traditional investment vehicles such as mutual funds or individual stocks and bonds. Every investor would be well served to follow the advice offered in ETF Investment Strategies.” — Damon M. Deru, CEO, TradeWarrior, Inc.

“A terrific read. Talk about a thorough introduction to investing in ETFs. Aniket is a tour guide for the essentials of the subject…The book treats all its subjects in plain English, illustrating them with examples of real-life practitioners and, unlike many other primers on this subject, keeping the jargon to a minimum… The book will help financial professionals get a better grasp of ETFs, and it will help self-directed independent investors ensure they get the most of the surging number of investing tools at their disposal.” — Brendan Conway,ETF editor, columnist, and blogger, Barron’s

Security Analysis: The Classic 1940 Edition (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

This is the long-awaited reprint of Graham and Dodd’s masterful first revision. The first edition of “Security Analysis”, published in 1934, forever changed the theory and practice of successful investing. Yet the remainder of that tumultuous decade brought unprecedented upheaval to the financial world, compelling Benjamin Graham and David Dodd to produce a comprehensively revised second edition. It is that edition, out of print for decades, that you now hold in your hands. “Security Analysis, Second Edition”, published in 1940, is considered by many (including legendary Graham student Warren Buffett) to be vastly superior to the first. Yet after three subsequent editions and over six decades, the insightful and instructive second edition could be found only in rare bookshops and closely-guarded private collections.McGraw-Hill, the book’s original publisher, is honored to publish “Security Analysis: The Classic 1940 Edition”. Identical in every meaningful aspect to the classic original, this is the long-awaited book that set the tone for decades of value investors. Let it provide you with a greater understanding of this country’s financial heritage, along with timeless value investing insights that have proven relevant and profitable in all types of markets and financial environments – and will never go out of style.’The lapse of six years since first publication of this work supplies the excuse, if not the necessity, for the present comprehensive revision …We have revised our text with a number of objectives in view. There are weaknesses to be corrected and some new judgments to be substituted’ – From the Preface. The names Graham and Dodd have come to be inextricably linked in the minds of thoughtful, disciplined investors. Their 1934 book “Security Analysis” made the two synonymous with intelligent, long-term investing, and forever changed the face of Wall Street.While post-Crash traders and investors treasured the book for its rigorous honesty, determined logic, and unequalled track record of success, the authors saw only the ‘weaknesses to be corrected’. The second edition of “Security Analysis”, published in 1940, allowed Ben Graham and David Dodd to set the record straight. It was considered by many then, and is considered by many now – including Graham student and disciple Warren Buffett, to be superior in many ways to the first. Still, as subsequent revised editions appeared, the once – indispensable second edition fell out of print and became virtually impossible to locate.With “Security Analysis: The Classic 1940 Edition”, McGraw-Hill returns this long-sought investment classic to the marketplace. While its timeless advice – that investors should ignore social trends, company prospects, and management styles to focus on the balance sheet – is as vital today as it was in 1940, it is the book’s updated insights and observations that justify its importance in the annals of both investing and publishing.Even as the financial world sang the praises of 1934’s groundbreaking “Security Analysis”, Benjamin Graham and David Dodd knew they could improve it. And that they did, with the 1940 publication of a brilliant second edition. Now, after having been unavailable for decades, this influential book returns in “Security Analysis: The Classic 1940 Edition”. As powerful today as it was for investors six decades back, it will reacquaint you with the foundations of value investing – more relevant than ever in tumultuous 21st century markets – and allow you to own the only book that could rightfully claim to have improved upon the eloquent first edition of “Security Analysis”.

Benjamin Graham, Building a Profession: The Early Writings of the Father of Security Analysis

Learn and profit from the early writings of a financial genius

Benjamin Graham is widely known as the father of Value Investing, and mentor to Warren Buffett. But Graham made another critically important contribution by advocating that securities analysts should meet minimum requirements of knowledge, and be held to high standards of ethical conduct—in short, that the profession should be treated as seriously as other fields of study, like accounting, medicine or law.

This fascinating collection spanning 30 years offers us valuable perspectives on investing and financial markets—many as vital in the present day as they were in Graham’s own tumultuous mid-twentieth century—and reveals the evolution of Graham’s passionate belief in the creation of a financial profession and a science of financial analysis.

The Financial Ecosystem: The Role of Finance in Achieving Sustainability (Palgrave Studies in Impact Finance)

Long term asset owners and managers, while seeking high risk-adjusted returns and efficiently allocating scarce financial capital to the highest value economic activities, have the essential and formidable role of ensuring the sustainability of return. But generally accepted financial accounting methods are ill-equipped to provide clear signals of the risks and opportunities created by scarce natural and human capital. Hence many investment managers in global financial markets, while performing due diligence on portfolio companies, examine metrics of non-financial performance, especially environmental, social and governance (ESG) indicators.

Broken into three sections, this book outlines the rationale for and methods used in six areas where financial acumen has been harnessed to the goal of combining monetary return with long run sustainability. The first section offers an introduction to the role of finance in achieving sustainability, and includes an overview of the six areas―sustainable investing, impact investing, decentralized finance, conservation finance, and cleantech finance. The methods section of the book illustrates analytical tools and specialized data sources essential to those interested in increasing the level of social responsibility embedded in economic activity. The applications section describes and differentiates each of the six areas and their roles in advancing specific measures of sustainability.

Market Tremors: Quantifying Structural Risks in Modern Financial Markets

Since the Global Financial Crisis,  the structure of financial markets has undergone a dramatic shift. Modern markets have been “zombified” by a combination of Central Bank policy, disintermediation of commercial banks through regulation, and the growth of passive products such as ETFs.  Increasingly, risk builds up beneath the surface, through a combination of excessive leverage and crowded exposure to specific asset classes and strategies.  In many cases, historical volatility understates prospective risk.

This book provides a practical and wide ranging framework for dealing with the credit, positioning and liquidity risk that investors face in the modern age.  The authors introduce concrete techniques for adjusting traditional risk measures such as volatility during this era of unprecedented balance sheet expansion.

 

When certain agents in the financial network behave differently or in larger scale than they have in the past, traditional portfolio theory breaks down.  It can no longer account for toxic feedback effects within the network.  Our feedback-based risk adjustments allow investors to size their positions sensibly in dangerous set ups, where volatility is not providing an accurate barometer of true risk.

The authors have drawn from the fields of statistical physics and game theory to simplify and quantify the impact of very large agents on the distribution of forward returns, and to offer techniques for dealing with situations where markets are structurally risky yet realized volatility is low.  The concepts discussed here should be of practical interest to portfolio managers, asset allocators, and risk professionals, as well as of academic interest to scholars and theorists.

TAIL RISK HEDGING: Creating Robust Portfolios for Volatile Markets (PROFESSIONAL FINANCE & INVESTM)

“TAIL RISKS” originate from the failure of mean reversion and the idealized bell curve of asset returns, which assumes that highly probable outcomes occur near the center of the curve and that unlikely occurrences, good and bad, happen rarely, if at all, at either “tail” of the curve. Ever since the global financial crisis, protecting investments against these severe tail events has become a priority for investors and money managers, but it is something Vineer Bhansali and his team at PIMCO have been doing for over a decade. In one of the first comprehensive and rigorous books ever written on tail risk hedging, he lays out a systematic approach to protecting portfolios from, and potentially benefiting from, rare yet severe market outcomes.

Tail Risk Hedging is built on the author’s practical experience applying macroeconomic forecasting and quantitative modeling techniques across asset markets. Using empirical data and charts, he explains the consequences of diversification failure in tail events and how to manage portfolios when this happens. He provides an easy-to-use, yet rigorous framework for protecting investment portfolios against tail risk and using tail hedging to play offense. Tail Risk Hedging explores how to:

  • Generate profits from volatility and illiquidity during tail-risk events in equity and credit markets
  • Buy attractively priced tail hedges that add value to a portfolio and quantify basis risk
  • Interpret the psychology of investors in option pricing and portfolio construction
  • Customize explicit hedges for retirement investments
  • Hedge risk factors such as duration risk and inflation risk

 

Managing tail risk is today’s most significant development in risk management, and this thorough guide helps you access every aspect of it. With the time-tested and mathematically rigorous strategies described here, including pieces of computer code, you get access to insights to help mitigate portfolio losses in significant downturns, create explosive liquidity while unhedged participants are forced to sell, and create more aggressive yet tail-risk-focused portfolios. The book also gives you a unique, higher level view of how tail risk is related to investing in alternatives, and of derivatives such as zerocost collars and variance swaps. Volatility and tail risks are here to stay, and so should your clients’ wealth when you use Tail Risk Hedging for managing portfolios.

PRAISE FOR TAIL RISK HEDGING:

“Managing, mitigating, and even exploiting the risk of bad times are the most important concerns in investments. Bhansali puts tail risk hedging and tail risk management under a microscope–pricing, implementation, and showing how we can fine-tune our risk exposures, which are all crucial ways in how we can better weather our bad times.” — ANDREW ANG, Ann F. Kaplan Professor of Business at Columbia University

“This book is critical and accessible reading for fiduciaries, financial consultants and investors interested in both theoretical foundations and practical considerations for how to frame hedging downside risk in portfolios. It is a tremendous resource for anyone involved in asset allocation today.” — CHRISTOPHER C. GECZY, Ph.D., Academic Director, Wharton Wealth Management Initiative and Adj. Associate Professor of Finance, The Wharton School

 

“Bhansali’s book demonstrates how tail risk hedging can work, be concretely implemented, and lead to higher returns so that it is possible to have your cake and eat it too! A must read for the savvy investor.” — DIDIER SORNETTE, Professor on the Chair of Entrepreneurial Risks, ETH Zurich

SuperCycles: The New Economic Force Transforming Global Markets and Investment Strategy

A brilliantly original assessment of what caused the global crash—and a practical plan for investing accordingly

Supercycles, according to international economist and strategist, Arun Motianey, are the continuous, long waves of boom and bust that undulate through the global economic and financial systems. More often than not, they are the result of policymakers’ well-intentioned but misguided attempts to achieve price stability. In Supercycles, Motianey surpasses the traditional business cycle model (“Boom and Bust”), to provide a detailed, objective, and at times surprising explanation of global economics.

Drawing heavily on history and informed by cautious readings of a wide range of economic thought, Motianey critiques the way macroeconomics has been practiced by the major powers’ central banks through the years.

Specifically, it was the banks’ intervention, ostensibly in the quest for price stability that actually served to entrench price instability. Further, he makes a compelling case for the new tools we’ll be using to manage the post-meltdown global economy, and even advises on investor portfolios to protect us from the likeliest scenarios that occur when a supercycle enters its terminal phase.

A cogent and impossible-to-ignore mixture of economics, finance, policy, risk management, and investment advice from a global perspective, Supercycles is certain to inform and inspire debate among investors, academics, and casual readers alike.

Adaptive Markets: Financial Evolution at the Speed of Thought

A new, evolutionary explanation of markets and investor behavior

Half of all Americans have money in the stock market, yet economists can’t agree on whether investors and markets are rational and efficient, as modern financial theory assumes, or irrational and inefficient, as behavioral economists believe. The debate is one of the biggest in economics, and the value or futility of investment management and financial regulation hangs on the answer. In this groundbreaking book, Andrew Lo transforms the debate with a powerful new framework in which rationality and irrationality coexist―the Adaptive Markets Hypothesis. Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields, Adaptive Markets shows that the theory of market efficiency is incomplete. When markets are unstable, investors react instinctively, creating inefficiencies for others to exploit. Lo’s new paradigm explains how financial evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of thought―a fact revealed by swings between stability and crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation. An ambitious new answer to fundamental questions about economics and investing, Adaptive Markets is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how markets really work.

Globalizing Patient Capital: The Political Economy of Chinese Finance in the Americas

China’s overseas financing is a distinct form of patient capital that marshals the country’s vast domestic resources to create commercial opportunities internationally. Its long-term risk tolerance and lack of policy conditionality has allowed developing economies to sidestep the fiscal austerity tendencies of Western markets and multilaterals. Employing statistical tests and extensive field research across China and Latin America, Stephen Kaplan finds that China’s patient capital endows national governments with more room to maneuver in formulating domestic policies. The author goes on to evaluate the potential costs of Chinese financing, raising the question of how Chinese lenders will react to developing nation’s ongoing struggles with debt and dependency. By disaggregating the structure of international finance, Globalizing Patient Capital has significant implications for the rise of China in Latin America, offering new insights about globalization and showing the costs and benefits of state versus market approaches to development.

Theory and data are integrated seamlessly throughout the manuscript. The mathematical treatment is complete, though not overbearing. The economics, pricing, structuring and capital allocation aspects are artfully combined into a coherent whole’ – Jamil Baz, Global Head of Fixed Income Research, Deutsche Bank.’ This is much more than just a ‘how to’ book – it is analytically complete in that it looks at the microeconomics of industry structure to understand why credit risks have to be measured and monitored as well as being comprehensive in covering all the different approaches used to monitor and measure credit risk’ – Bunt Ghosh, Global Head of Fixed Income Research, Credit Suisse First Boston. ‘This extensive work, really clear while dealing with sophisticated methodologies, is right in the heart of today’s concerns’ – Jean-Pierre Mustier, CEO, SG Corporate and Investment Banking. “de Servigny and Renault provide a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of modern credit risk measurement, management, and mitigation, not only for large corporations but also for retail and small business (with an excellent chapter on credit scoring).This book is an absolute must for both academics and risk professionals, especially those struggling with the implementation of Basel II’ – Michel Crouhy, Head of Business Analytic Solutions, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Fast-changing regulations, transformative technologies, and today’s go-for-broke business mentality present investment banks and other lenders with default problems that are both unprecedented and daunting.

Today’s credit risk measurement and management tools and techniques provide organizations with dramatically improved strength and flexibility, not only in mitigating risk but also in improving overall financial performance. “The Standard & Poor’s Guide to Measuring and Managing Credit Risk” introduces and explores each of these tools, along with the rapidly evolving global credit environment, to provide bankers and other financial decision-makers with the know-how to avoid excessive credit risk where possible – and mitigate it when necessary.

Build a Commercial Real Estate Empire: How to Scale to New Heights With the Right Financing, Deals, and Strategies: 5 (InvestFourMore Investor Series)

Build a Rental Property Empire has been a hugely successful book for Mark Ferguson, who is a house flipper (almost 200 completed), landlord, broker, blogger, and influencer. Mark started with residential properties, but when the market became too hot and cash flowing became more difficult, he switched to commercial real estate. After finding success, many of his followers asked for this book. Build a Commercial Real Estate Empire is not a fluffy motivational book about how rich you can become by investing in big real estate deals. It is a how-to book.

The Finance Curse: How Global Finance Is Making Us All Poorer

Financial journalist Nicholas Shaxson first made his reputation studying the “resource curse,” seeing first-hand the disastrous economic and societal effects of the discovery of oil in Angola. He then gained prominence as an expert on tax havens, revealing the dark corners of that world long before the scandals of the Panama and Paradise Papers. Now, in The Finance Curse, he brings his knowledge to bear in an eye-opening investigation of how banks have overbalanced the economies of Western democracies, exerting an outsize effect on policy-making and effecting a brain drain of the brightest and best to the financial industry and its offshoots, much to the detriment of both business and broader society.

How did we get to this situation? Shaxson describes the transformation of banks over the twentieth century as they changed from relatively small institutions that did well for themselves by serving the needs of business, to unfettered global behemoths. As the world reeled from World War II, the banks grew bigger in the post-war restructuring, experimenting with esoteric financial instruments like the Eurobonds in the 1960s, and then in the 1970s and ’80s taking increasingly high risks in order to compete with each other to return more profit to their demanding shareholders. Now these megabanks spread the fiscal gospel that business must be taxed as little as possible, that corporations need rights previously granted to humans, and encourage a fight to the bottom between states to provide the most subsidized environment for big business, in the name of “competitivity.”

We need strong financial institutions – but when finance grows too big it becomes a curse. The Finance Curse is the explosive story of how finance got a stranglehold on society and how we might release ourselves from its grasp.

The Signs Were There: The clues for investors that a company is heading for a fall

When companies suffer a dramatic even catastrophic drop in their share price, it is the investors who lose their shirts and employees their jobs. But often, a company’s published accounts offer clues to impending disaster, providing you know where to look.

Through the forensic examination of more than 20 recent stock market disasters, Tim Steer reveals how companies hide or disguise worrying facts about the robustness of their business. In his lively style, he looks at the themes that underlie the ways companies hide the truth and he stresses that in an assessment of a company’s accounts, investors should always bear in mind that the only fact is cash; everything else – profit, assets, etc – is a matter of opinion. Full of invaluable lessons for investors, the book concludes with some trenchant observations on what is wrong in the worlds of investment, audit and financial regulation, and what changes should be introduced.

Since the day the first human being approached a prospective investor, the province of capital allocation has been controlled by a small and entrenched minority.

Providing a wealth of information that will make your crowdfunding efforts more efficient and productive, the book is organized into three thematic sections:

THE ROAD HERE: A thorough overview of what crowdfunding is―and how and why this radical new approach is replacing traditional means of venture financing

Moving Beyond Modern Portfolio Theory: Investing That Matters

Moving Beyond Modern Portfolio Theory: Investing That Matters tells the story of how Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) revolutionized the investing world and the real economy, but is now showing its age. MPT has no mechanism to understand its impacts on the environmental, social and financial systems, nor any tools for investors to mitigate the havoc that systemic risks can wreck on their portfolios. It’s time for MPT to evolve.

The authors propose a new imperative to improve finance’s ability to fulfil its twin main purposes: providing adequate returns to individuals and directing capital to where it is needed in the economy. They show how some of the largest investors in the world focus not on picking stocks, but on mitigating systemic risks, such as climate change and a lack of gender diversity, so as to improve the risk/return of the market as a whole, despite current theory saying that should be impossible. “Moving beyond MPT” recognizes the complex relations between investing and the systems on which capital markets rely, “Investing that matters” embraces MPT’s focus on diversification and risk adjusted return, but understands them in the context of the real economy and the total return needs of investors.

Whether an investor, an MBA student, a Finance Professor or a sustainability professional, Moving Beyond Modern Portfolio Theory: Investing That Matters is thought-provoking and relevant. Its bold critique shows how the real world already is moving beyond investing orthodoxy.

Machine Learning in Finance: From Theory to Practice

This book introduces machine learning methods in finance. It presents a unified treatment of machine learning and various statistical and computational disciplines in quantitative finance, such as financial econometrics and discrete time stochastic control, with an emphasis on how theory and hypothesis tests inform the choice of algorithm for financial data modeling and decision making. With the trend towards increasing computational resources and larger datasets, machine learning has grown into an important skillset for the finance industry. This book is written for advanced graduate students and academics in financial econometrics, mathematical finance and applied statistics, in addition to quants and data scientists in the field of quantitative finance.

Machine Learning in Finance: From Theory to Practice is divided into three parts, each part covering theory and applications. The first presents supervised learning for cross-sectional data from both a Bayesian and frequentist perspective. The more advanced material places a firm emphasis on neural networks, including deep learning, as well as Gaussian processes, with examples in investment management and derivative modeling. The second part presents supervised learning for time series data, arguably the most common data type used in finance with examples in trading, stochastic volatility and fixed income modeling. Finally, the third part presents reinforcement learning and its applications in trading, investment and wealth management. Python code examples are provided to support the readers’ understanding of the methodologies and applications. The book also includes more than 80 mathematical and programming exercises, with worked solutions available to instructors. As a bridge to research in this emergent field, the final chapter presents the frontiers of machine learning in finance from a researcher’s perspective, highlighting how many well-known concepts in statistical physics are likely to emerge as important methodologies for machine learning in finance.

Advanced Introduction to Public Finance (Elgar Advanced Introductions series)

Elgar Advanced Introductions are stimulating and thoughtful introductions to major fields in the social sciences, business and law, expertly written by the world’s leading scholars. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the substantive and policy issues associated with discrete subject areas. The public finance branch of economics has seen a great deal of change in prevailing attitudes regarding the role of the market and the role of government in countries with democratic institutions and market economies. Different functions have been added, over the past century, and especially after World War II, to the role that the government should play. The laissez faire ideology of the past, that minimized the government role, was progressively abandoned until the last two decades of the 20th century, when there was an attempt to reduce the ambitious role that the government had assumed, and to give a growing role back to the market. This book explains how changes in both the market and the government have made public finance a more challenging, interesting and at times frustrating branch of economics. It provides a cosmopolitan perspective and details the part that historical developments have played in shaping modern views. The author explores the real life, practical nature of public finance and de-emphasizes the role of armchair theorizing by focusing on real issues that are seen from a community rather than an individualistic perspective. The Advanced Introduction to Public Finance offers a fresh look at the field for students, researchers and policymakers in economics, public administration, taxation, policy and economic history.

Simply UK Government Finances 2021-22

How much comes in? Where does the money go? How big is the deficit and what is happening to it? What does the Government need to borrow and how much is debt increasing? How much is the covid-19 pandemic costing? What much is the EU exit settlement? Transparency in public finances has frequently meant the provision of ever increasing amounts of financial information, without a focus on the need to make that information understandable. As a result, most of us know little about our government and how it is financed. Simply UK aims to remedy that situation by providing a clear and concise summary of the UK Government’s financial position, using vivid and colourful charts to clearly explain how the coronavirus pandemic has added to the national debt and how the Government’s objective of eliminating the deficit has been abandon, at least for now. It explains where the money comes from and where it goes. It also provides information about the EU Budget, the overall UK economy, and provides a brief overview of how the tax and welfare systems work. In a handy compact A5 format, Simply UK is an indispensable companion for everyone wanting to understand how our government works.

DeFi and the Future of Finance

During the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, our financial infrastructure failed.

Govern­ments bailed out the very institutions that let the economy down. This episode spurred a serious rethink of our financial system. Does it make any sense that it takes two days to settle a stock transaction? Why do retailers, operating on razor thin margins, have to pay 3% for every customer credit card swipe? Why does it take two days to transfer money from a bank account to a brokerage—or any other company? Why are savings rates miniscule or negative? Why is it so difficult for entrepreneurs to get financ­ing at traditional banks?

In DeFi and the Future of Finance, Campbell R. Harvey, Ashwin Ramachandran and Joey Santoro, introduce the new world of Decen­tralized Finance. The book argues that the current financial landscape is ripe for dis­ruption and we are seeing, in real time, the reinvention of finance.

The authors provide the reader with a clear assessment of the problems with the current financial system and how DeFi solves many of these problems. The essence of DeFi is that we interact with peers—there is no brick and mortar and all of the associated costs. Savings and lending are reinvented. Trading takes place with algorithms far re­moved from traditional brokerages.

The book conducts a deep dive on some of the most innovative protocols such as Uniswap and Compound. Many of the companies featured in the book you might not have heard of—however, you will in the future.

As with any new technology, there are a myriad of risks and the authors carefully catalogue these risks and assess which ones can be successfully mitigated.

Ideally suited for people working in any part of the finance industry as well as finan­cial policy makers, DeFi and the Future of Finance gives readers a vision of the future. The world of finance will fundamentally be changed over the coming decade. The book enables you to become part of the disruption – not the target of the disruption.

The Holloway Guide to Raising Venture Capital: The Comprehensive Fundraising Handbook for Startup Founders

This guide is the most comprehensive resource of its kind available, with contribution and review from experienced founders, lawyers, and investors—including Brad Feld, José Ancer, Camille Ricketts, Leo Polovets, Clerky co-founders Darby Wong and Chris Field, Danielle Morrill, Joe Wallin (co-author of the Holloway book, Angel Investing: Start to Finish), and many more. It will help any founder raise the right way, with confidence. This print edition includes lifetime digital access to additional features and future updates at Holloway.com.

Venture capital is a powerful tool for entrepreneurship—one that can help overcome some of the challenges of starting and scaling a new business. It’s notoriously easy for founders to take wrong turns in their path to financing a company—but many mistakes are avoidable with the right knowledge. Author Andy Sparks is a three-time founder whose goal is helping entrepreneurs avoid pain, costly mistakes, and fruitless research. Topics covered include:

  • Assessing whether to raise
  • Determining how much to raise and understanding how valuation and dilution are connected to how much you raise
  • Choosing a financing structure
  • Creating a target list of investors
  • Designing and delivering your pitch and what to expect in investor meetings
  • Everything a founder needs to know about term sheets (created with startup lawyers!), including sample term sheets

This book also includes appendices on networking and mentorship for founders, how venture capitalists make money (think returns, management fees, and carried interest), and a list of example pitch decks.

Raising venture capital isn’t inevitable for every startup or every founder. The best founders go into the process of raising money with their eyes wide open to all the possibilities, including alternate ways to raise, and the options available to them, from financing structures to pitch designs to what terms to fight for. They can anticipate the next steps in the process before they begin, and ask themselves the important questions along the way. They know what will change between each round, and what to keep an eye out for when it comes to risks and pitfalls. They’ll know how those good relationships—with investors, other founders, their team, and their customers—are the most important part of building a successful company, and they know just how to find, foster, and sustain those relationships.

Let the Holloway Guide to Raising Venture Capital be there for you, the trusted friend you can turn to again and again.

As such, practitioners such as bankers and traders in commodity finance, and those institutions operating in this field, or planning to be active in this field, will all benefit from this book.

This revised and updated second edition is a hands-on summary of commodity finance, with a special chapter dedicated to real-life case studies of commodity finance.

Topics covered include:
– High-level overview of commodity trade and finance.
– The three major sectors of commodity finance: soft commodities, hard commodities and energy
– Commodity finance and emerging markets, as most commodity export countries are emerging markets countries.
– The special mechanisms and products of commodity finance, from plain vanilla products to more complicated structures. The concept of Supply Chain Finance is also covered in detail.
– Bank and country risk.
– Risk management principles, with practical case studies.
– The organization of a typical commodity finance bank.

The key benefits of the book are: For bankers – how to do business and what risks should be watched for? For traders, brokers and institutional investors – how commodity finance is done and what bank instruments can be used. For students – how is commodity finance handled and developed by banks?

Each chapter can be read independently. The content has been reviewed by both experts and newcomers, incorporating their comments on style and content, to ensure it is as useful and clear as possible.

Build a Commercial Real Estate Empire: How to Scale to New Heights With the Right Financing, Deals, and Strategies: 5 (InvestFourMore Investor Series)

Build a Rental Property Empire has been a hugely successful book for Mark Ferguson, who is a house flipper (almost 200 completed), landlord, broker, blogger, and influencer. Mark started with residential properties, but when the market became too hot and cash flowing became more difficult, he switched to commercial real estate. After finding success, many of his followers asked for this book. Build a Commercial Real Estate Empire is not a fluffy motivational book about how rich you can become by investing in big real estate deals. It is a how-to book. It teaches you how to buy, finance, find, repair, manage, and value commercial real estate. It comes with more than 10 case studies that go into the details of deals Mark has done in the last 3 years, including the good, the bad, and the ugly. If you have any interest in commercial real estate—not multifamily residential apartments—but retail, industrial, and office space, this is the book for you. If you are looking to simply dump huge amounts of money into big commercial properties, this is not the book for you. This book shows you how to add value, get great deals, and refinance properties to take cash out for bigger deals…all while bringing in substantial monthly income.

The Wisdom of Finance: How the Humanities Can Illuminate and Improve Finance

Longlisted for the FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2017

Finance is shrouded in mystery for outsiders, while many insiders are uneasy with the disrepute of their profession. How can finance become more accessible and also recover its nobility?

Harvard Business School professor Mihir Desai takes up the cause of restoring humanity to finance. With deft wit, he draws upon a rich knowledge of literature, film, history, and philosophy to explain finance’s inner workings. Through this creative approach, he shows that outsiders can easily access the underlying ideas and insiders can reacquaint themselves with the core values of their profession.

This combination of finance and the humanities creates unusual and illuminating pairings: Jane Austen and Anthony Trollope are guides to risk management; Jeff Koons becomes an advocate of leverage; and Mel Brooks’ The Producers teaches us about fiduciary responsibility. In Desai’s vision, the principles of finance also provide answers to critical questions in our lives: bankruptcy teaches us how to react to failure, the lessons of mergers apply to marriages, and the Capital Asset Pricing Model demonstrates the true value of relationships.

The Wisdom of Finance is a wholly unique book, offering an enlivening new perspective on one of the world’s most complex and misunderstood professions.

Applied Equity Analysis: Stock Valuation Techniques for Wall Street Professionals (McGraw-Hill Library of Investment and Finance)

This is today’s most comprehensive practitioner’s guide to modern equity analysis. Professional equity analysts must contend with a number of strong forces, each pulling in separate but equally relentless directions. “Applied Equity Analysis” ties these disparate elements into a seamless whole, and presents a clear, complete equity analysis picture. Written from the working analyst’s point of view, in a singularly candid style that is both thought provoking and illuminating, “Applied Equity Analysis” covers: how to think, speak, and develop investment recommendations in the language of Wall Street; how competitive forces directly impact financial results and, in the process, drive stock valuation; and, how to use valuation methodologies designed to quantify the growth and earnings assumptions inherent in speculative stock prices. “Applied Equity Analysis” emphasizes techniques that work on a day-to-day basis, rather than traditional but often impractical academic approaches.By combining a solid discussion of finance and investment theory with techniques popular among today’s buy- and sell-side analysts, it presents a picture of stock investment analysis that is analytically rigorous, aggressively uncompromising, and based on earnings – the true driving force of Wall Street. “The equity analyst’s job is to present a position, supported by financial and non-financial evidence. Data unnecessary to the argument are, in a word, unnecessary. However, the analyst must understand all the data, relevant or not. The ultimate goal of the equity analyst is the exploitation of any difference between a stock’s price and its value.” – From Chapter 1. “Applied Equity Analysis” is about understanding all the data.Written by former JP Morgan managing director James English – an adjunct professor of finance at the Columbia University School of Business, honored by “The Wall Street Journal” for his stock analysis skills – this innovative book treats valuation as a practical tool rather than a theoretical exercise. Its integrated approach shows you how to build straight-line connections between a firm’s fundamental competitive situation and its stock performance, by combining an understanding of a firm’s competitive strengths and weaknesses with accurate financial statement analysis – to build a more complete model of a firm’s future stock market performance.Combining a solid discussion of finance and investment theory with techniques frequently used by working buy- and sell-side analysts, “Applied Equity Analysis” discusses: specific valuation techniques for identifying stocks that are undervalued relative to their peers; quantitative techniques to link a firm’s projected future financial performance to its potential future valuation – based upon the current trading patterns of comparable stocks; a hybrid valuation technique to mathematically calculate a stock’s inherent growth expectations; a proven strategy for formulating and successfully presenting an investment recommendation; an entire chapter on the Stern Stewart EVA[trademark] system as an alternative – and potentially useful – way of decoding financial statement information; and, relative and hybrid earnings-based valuation techniques that are more practical than cash-flow methods – and frequently far superior. On today’s Wall Street, equity analysts must focus on a firm’s ability to produce returns that exceed capital costs, and then estimate the firm’s future power to maintain and increase those returns. Let “Applied Equity Analysis” supply you with in-depth examples and explanations of Wall Street’s most important equity analysis tools – and give you a hands-on, real-world handbook for equity analysis in today’s complex financial marketplace.

Champagne Football: John Delaney and the Betrayal of Irish Football: The Inside Story

Brought to you by Penguin.

The number one best seller!

Over the course of 15 years, John Delaney ran the Football Association of Ireland as his own personal fiefdom. He had his critics, but his power was never seriously challenged until last year, when Mark Tighe and Paul Rowan published a sequence of stories in the Sunday Times containing damaging revelations about his personal compensation and the parlous financial situation of the FAI. Delaney’s reputation as a great financial manager was left in tatters. He resigned under pressure and the FAI was left hoping for a massive bail-out from the Irish taxpayer.

In Champagne Football, Tighe and Rowan dig deep into the story of Delaney’s career and of the FAI’s slide into ruin. They show how he surrounded himself with people whose personal loyalty he could count on and a board that failed to notice that the association’s finances were shot. They detail Delaney’s skilful cultivation of opinion-formers outside the FAI. And they document the culture of excess that Delaney presided over and benefited from, to the detriment of the organisation he led.

Champagne Football is a gripping, sometimes darkly hilarious and often enraging piece of reporting by the award-winning journalists who finally pulled back the curtain on the FAI’s mismanagement.

Anyone who thinks operations is just another corporate function needs to read this book.”
— Manish Bhatia, SVP, Worldwide Operations, SanDisk

“The advent of global marketplaces, heightened competition, accelerated pace of product innovation, and fast-changing customer preferences have increased the impact of the supply chain on company profitability and long-term success. But cultural challenges to successfulsupply chain design remain. Cohen and Roussel’s book provides a platform for addressing these challenges and is recommended reading for chief executives, strategy professionals, and supply chain practitioners.”
— Martin Roper, Chief Executive Officer and President, Boston Beer

The classic guide to supply chain strategy–re-created to help business leaders gain an advantage in today’s volatile, globalized arena

The global landscape has changed dramatically since the first edition of Strategic Supply Chain Management established itself as the authority on creating value and achieving competitive advantage from the supply chain. Shorter economic cycles, more-frequent natural disasters, higher costs in low-cost countries, more-restricted access to working capital, and greater focus on sustainabilityhave made effective supply chain management much more challenging–and much more critical to the bottom line.

This second edition is your answer to gaining a strategic advantage in the face of these challenges. Drawing on dozens of new company examples as well as cutting-edge benchmarking research, it shows you how to make your supply chains more agile, flexible, and resilient.

With 80 easy-to-read tables and diagrams, this fully revised book explains how to:

  • Develop a supply chain strategy that will help you realize your business goals
  • Design a process architecture that maps out the activities of the end-to-end supply chain
  • Create the most effective supply chain organization
  • Build the most beneficial relationships with your supply chain partners
  • Use metrics to assess and drive business success
  • Implement transformational change

See how today’s best supply chain strategies work in all-new profiles of BASF, Essilor, Haier, Kaiser Permanente, Lenovo, and Schlumberger. Find out what these industry leaders are doing to get the greatest value outof their supply chains.

Inside the Black Box: The Simple Truth About Quantitative Trading

Quantitative trading strategies – known to many as black boxes – have gained a reputation of being difficult to explain and even harder to understand. While there is a certain level of complexity to this approach, with the right guidance, you can successfully overcome potential obstacles and begin to excel in this arena.

That’s why expert fund manager Rishi Narang has created Inside the Black Box. In a straightforward, nontechnical style – supplemented by real-world examples and informative anecdotes – this reliable resource takes you on a detailed tour through the black box. It skillfully sheds light upon the work that quants do, lifting the veil of mystery around quantitative trading and allowing anyone interested in doing so to understand quants and their strategies.

Divided into three comprehensive parts, Inside the Black Box opens with an accessible introduction to the discipline of quantitative trading and quickly moves on to demonstrate that what many call a black box is in fact transparent, intuitively sensible, and readily understandable. Along the way, it also explains how quant strategies can fit into your portfolio and why they are so important.

Whether you’re an institutional investor or high-networth individual, the lessons learned here will help you gain an edge in today’s turbulent market. Some of the tough questions answered in this book include:

 

  • How do quants capture alpha?
  • What is the difference between theory-driven systems and data-mining strategies?
  • How do quants model risk?
  • What can be learned about investing in general from quantitative trading?
  • And much more.

Given both the difficulty of the market environment over the past few years and the negativity surrounding hedge funds in general and quant funds in particular, there has never been a better time to become more familiar with what quantitative trading is really about. With the help of the framework found here, you can gain a firm understanding of quant strategies, discern which are more likely to succeed, and ascertain how to use specific strategies in a portfolio, to help improve the performance of your investment process.
