‘If you only read one book on how to manage your investments, read this one.’ Benjamin Pritchett-Brown, Investment & Pensions Europe

 

YOU CAN'T BEAT THE MARKETS, BUT YOU CAN INVEST BETTER.

 

Don’t spend your time worrying whether you can beat the markets: you don’t need to beat them to be a successful investor. The vast majority of investors are overwhelmingly unlikely to outperform the financial markets themselves, or pick the one out of ten investment funds that can do so over a ten year period. Based on this premise, Investing Demystified shows you build a simple, diversified, and low cost portfolio suited to your risk level that will help you generate superior returns.

 

With his straightforward and jargon-free advice, Lars Kroijer simplifies the often complex world of finance and tells you everything you need to know – and everything that you don’t need to worry about – in order to make the most from your investments.

 

In Investing Demystified you will:

 

•   Discover the mix of stocks, bonds and cash needed for a top performing portfolio

•   Understand the right level of risk for you and how this affects your investments

•   Recognise and embrace that you probably can’t beat the markets

•   Find out why a low cost approach will yield benefits whilst leaving you with a higher quality portfolio

•   Understand why you should steer clear of individual stocks and actively managed investment funds
