Patient Capital

Patient Capital

Author: Victoria Ivashina, Josh Lerner Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/05/2021

How to overcome barriers to the long-term investments that are essential for solving the world's biggest problems There has never been a greater need for long-term investments to tackle the world's most difficult problems, such as climate change, human health, and decaying infrastructure. And it is increasingly unlikely that the public sector will be willing or able to fill this gap. If these critical needs are to be met, the major pools of long-term, patient capital-including pensions, sovereign wealth funds, university endowments, and wealthy individuals and families-will have to play a large role. In this accessible and authoritative account of long-term capital investment, two leading experts on the subject, Victoria Ivashina and Josh Lerner, highlight the significant hurdles facing long-term investors and propose concrete ways to overcome these difficulties.

Renminbi Exchange Rate Forecasting

Renminbi Exchange Rate Forecasting

With the internationalization of Renminbi (RMB), the gradual liberalization of China's capital account and the recent reform of the RMB pricing mechanism, the RMB exchange rate has been volatile. This book examines how we can forecast exchange rate reliably. It explains how we can do so through a new methodology for exchange rate forecasting. The book also analyzes the dynamic relationship between exchange rate and the exchange rate data decomposition and integration, the domestic economic situation, the international economic situation and the public's expectations and how these interactions would affect the exchange rate. The book also explains why this comprehensive integrated approach is the best model for optimizing accuracy in exchange rate forecasting.

Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett

Author: Robert G. Hagstrom Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/05/2021

While it provides a solid foundation of Buffett's principles and his personal background for those who may be new to the Berkshire story, the core of the text moves in new and exciting directions. It is, in a very real sense, the culmination of years of studying the man so often described as the world's best investor. Business-driven Investing. Introducing a new investment paradigm, a powerful alternative to modern portfolio theory. The Evolution of Value Investing. A long-overdue discussion of the persistent confusion about what value investing really is. The Philosophy of Rationalism. Underlying Buffett's approach is this belief that reality has an intrinsically logical structure, and it informs his tenets. It sits at the core of what it means to have a money mind, and thus needs to be better understood. The Money Mind. It's the essence of success, and these days everyone is talking about it, but what exactly does it look like? It looks a lot like Warren Buffett - the ultimate money mind. No learning can be achieved by simply tallying Berkshire's wins and losses. Rather, greater insight is gained when we take the time to understand how Warren's thinking evolved within a broader market environment that was, and still is, constantly shifting. The bedrock principles remain unchanged ( that's why they call them principles, Buffett famously quipped) but now we take a fresh look in the context of Business-driven Investing. At the same time, we track how the asset management industry morphed into something that is today the antithesis of the Warren Buffett philosophy - another reason that understanding Business-driven Investing is so critical. For more than fifty years, Warren's example and teachings have impacted his family, friends, partners, shareholders, and colleagues; directors, managers, and employees; small business owners and chief executives of the Fortune 1000 companies; portfolio managers, analysts, writers, teachers, and students; and literally millions of devoted followers around the world. Today Berkshire Hathaway, the company, is in transition-- a well-recognized reality. Yet its reputation will remain steady, even under new leadership, for Warren's principles are important, proven, and timeless.

The Successful Trader's Guide to Money Management

The Successful Trader's Guide to Money Management

Author: Andrea Unger Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/04/2021

The book describes the various operating methods used by traders and professional investors to calculate how much of their capital can be used in individual transactions. Money management is a fundamental aspect for managing risks faced by any trader when operating on the various financial markets. Most operators, in fact, focus on identifying the operational set-ups (entry levels, stop-loss, take profit, trailing-stop) and do not consider the impact, very often decisive, that a proper money management could have on the final results of its operations. Successful traders focus on risk management, avoiding opening positions that are too large with respect to the total capital they have available. Packed with practical examples and with special focus on money management or position-sizing, The Successful Trader's Guide to Money Management offers a comprehensive coverage of the widely practiced investment techniques, examining their strengths and weaknesses and explains the various operating models, in particular, the Fixed Fractional, Fixed Ratio and Percent Volatility models. With respect to portfolio management, it provides a thorough analysis and discussion on the Core Equity, Total Equity and Reduced Total Equity models. The book also offers essential tips for building and designing a trading system, trading on Forex and choosing a broker.

Richer, Wiser, Happier

Author: William Green Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/04/2021

Billionaire investors. If we think of them, it's with a mixture of awe and suspicion. Clearly, they possess a kind of genius - the proverbial Midas Touch. But are the skills they possess transferable? And would we really want to be them? Do they have anything to teach us besides making money? In Richer, Wiser, Happier, award-winning journalist William Green has spent nearly twenty-five years interviewing these investing wizards and discovered that their talents expand well beyond the financial realm and into practical philosophy. Green ushers us into the lives of more than forty of the world's super-investors, visiting them in their offices, vacation homes, and even their places of worship - all to share what they have to teach us. Green brings together the thinking of some of the best investors, from Warren Buffet to Howard Marks to John Templeton, and provides gems of insight that will enrich you not only financially but also professionally and personally.

The first book to reveal how the Federal Reserve holds the key to making us more economically equal, written by an author with unparalleled expertise in the real world of financial policy Following the 2008 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve's monetary policy placed much greater focus on stabilizing the market than on helping struggling Americans.

In Engine of Inequality, Karen Petrou offers pragmatic solutions for creating more inclusive monetary policy and equality-enhancing financial regulation as quickly and painlessly as possible. Karen Petrou is a leading financial-policy analyst and consultant with unrivaled knowledge of what drives the decisions of federal officials and how big banks respond to financial policy in the real world. Instead of proposing legislation that would never pass Congress, the author provides an insider's look at politically plausible, high-impact financial policy fixes that will radically shift the equality balance. Offering an innovative, powerful, and highly practical solution for immediately turning around the enormous nationwide problem of economic inequality, this groundbreaking book: Presents practical ways America can and should tackle economic inequality with fast-acting results Provides revealing examples of exactly how bad economic inequality in America has become no matter how hard we all work Demonstrates that increasing inequality is disastrous for long-term economic growth, political action, and even personal happiness Explains why your bank's interest rates are still only a fraction of what they were even though the rich are getting richer than ever, faster than ever Reveals the dangers of FinTech and BigTech companies taking over banking Shows how Facebook wants to control even the dollars in your wallet Discusses who shares the blame for our economic inequality, including the Fed, regulators, Congress, and even economists Engine of Inequality: The Fed and the Future of Wealth in America should be required reading for leaders, policymakers, regulators, media professionals, and all Americans wanting to ensure that the nation's financial policy will be a force for promoting economic equality

The Laws of Wealth (paperback)

Author: Daniel Crosby Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/03/2021

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Dr. Daniel Crosby-the behavioral finance book all investors have been waiting for. In The Laws of Wealth, psychologist and behavioral finance expert Daniel Crosby presents three sets of real, actionable rules that investors can use to apply the lessons of behavioral finance. He begins with ten rules that are the hallmarks of good investor behavior, including 'Forecasting is for Weathermen', 'If You're Excited, It's Probably a Bad Idea', and 'Trouble is Opportunity'. From here, attention turns to the Four Cs of Rule-Based Investing: Consistency, Clarity, Courageousness, Conviction. The Four Cs provide practical methods to combat behavioral risk in investing. And finally, he introduces the Five Ps of successful equity investing: Price, Properties, Pitfalls, People, Push. Investors can draw on these five methods to select stocks and take advantage of behavioral opportunities in the stock market. Throughout, anecdotes, research, and graphics illustrate the lessons in memorable ways. And in highly valuable 'What now?' summaries at the end of each chapter, Crosby provides clear, concise direction on what to think, ask, and do next to become a better investor. If you are wondering what years of behavioral finance has delivered for real investors, you should follow the laws of wealth to manage your behavior and improve your investing!
