About the book:
Tadas Viskanta is a true expert. An experienced investor and creator of the popular blog Abnormal Returns, he understands the value of humility when it comes to investing in today’s turbulent global markets. But he also knows that just because you can’t control the markets doesn’t mean you can’t control your own actions―and in Abnormal Returns, he provides a solid foundation in the basic principles for taking a slow, steady, and savvy approach to your financial future.
Viskanta helps you navigate your way through the post-crisis markets by developing a solid investing strategy. His simple truths are timely but have been proven effective through recent history. Sophisticated but simple to understand, Abnormal Returns helps you:
- Master the fundamentals of risk and return
- Become an expert on the main asset classes―equities and fixed income
- Diversify and allocate your assets to build a solid portfolio
- Understand how ETFs, alternative assets, and globalization affect how we invest
- Combat your personal behavioral patterns that lead to poor investing
- Separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to the financial media
While the world of investing has become more complex, there has never been a better time to be an individual investor. It is now easier―and cheaper―to invest than ever before. This back-to-basics approach provides the tools you need for ultimate success.
Abnormal Returns doesn’t give you the latest investing trends, “fail-safe” market predictions, or hot new tips for hitting the jackpot right now. What you do get is a fresh perspective on how markets work―and expert insight into how to make them work for you.
