All About Asset Allocation, 2nd Edition

This book is very informative providing well documented explanations for the recommended approach to investing.
I wish I had this information years ago, it would have saved me many years of losses, along with the ridiculously high fees charged by so-called experts. I trusted Fisher Investments and others only to loose, sustaining many years of setbacks while they made very high management fees.

After reading this book, the reader will be able to easily manage their savings and investments using low cost funds and ETFs and avoiding the erosive effects of high management fees.

One final note, the author needs to have an editor correct the spelling and word errors that are found throughout the book.

Excellent & Informative

Richard provides a detailed description of Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) and how it can be applied through the rebalancing of multiple asset classes of varying levels of correlation. He goes into depth on how each asset class operates, how they can be integrated into a portfolio, and which low cost index funds best represent these asset classes. Finally, he summarizes the importance of proper risk analysis.

A great foundation book

This book coupled with Rick Ferri’s Core-4 free website were of enormous value when deciding my asset allocation. The most useful book I’ve read on the subject!
