Real World Investing
If you are looking for a book that explains all the intricacies of investing this is not the book for you. However, if your need is for better understanding of the investment process then you have found the right tool. “Real World Investing” provides practical information and important insight into how the investment world works. Whether you go on to manage a pension fund, your family’s money, your own 401(k) account at work, or just want to know what’s happening inside a mutual fund you happen to own, this book will help you make sense of it.
“Real World Investing” will teach you…
- How to create an investment strategy based on your personal financial goals
- What you need to know about risk
- Ways to build a healthy portfolio
- How to prepare for the most common investment reason – retirement
Perhaps most importantly, you will come to realize that money itself is not a goal. It is not the prize you should seek. To some it is a gift, and to all it is a tool. “Real World Investing” will help you be the best steward of the money that you have.
