The Einstein of Money: The Life and Timeless Fi...

Even in 2012, Ben Graham is still a hero to me - Warren Buffett (from the author's interview with Buffett for The Einstein of Money) Warren Buffett has repeatedly acknowledged Benjamin Graham, a man he personally studied and worked under, as the primary influence on his investment approach. Indeed, there is a direct line between the record-shattering investing performance of Buffett (and other value investors) and Graham's life. In six books and dozens of papers, Graham—widely known as the "Dean of Wall Street"—left an extensive account of an investing system that, as Buffett can attest to, actually works! In The Einstein of Money, author and business consultant Joe Carlen educates the listener on Graham's most essential wealth-creation concepts (as selected by Buffett himself), while telling the colorful story of Graham's amazing business career and his multifaceted personal life. As the author shows, Graham was a brilliant innovator in many areas—from devising a new currency to writing a Broadway play. His complex personality combined impeccable professional ethics with a checkered, even wild, romantic life. Carlen's biography distills the best from Graham's extensive published works (including his candid memoirs, released in 1996) and draws from the author's interviews with Warren Buffett, Charles Brandes, other top US and global value investors, Graham's surviving children and friends, and select finance professors and authors. In this manner, The Einstein of Money weaves Graham's transformational ideas into the narrative of a momentous life and legacy. Warren Buffett once said, "No one ever became poor by reading Graham." By the same token, no one will ever become poor, bored, or uninspired by listening to Carlen's lively, informative biography of Benjamin Graham and his time-tested techniques for generating wealth. 1.

Expected Returns

Expected Returns is a one-stop reference that gives investors a comprehensive toolkit for harvesting market rewards from a wide range of investments. Written by an experienced portfolio manager, scholar, strategist, investment advisor and hedge fund trader, this book challenges investors to broaden their minds from a too-narrow asset class perspective and excessive focus on historical performance. Coverage includes major asset classes (stocks, bonds, alternatives), investment strategies (value, carry, momentum, volatility) and the effects of underlying risk factors (growth, inflation, illiquidity, tail risks). Judging expected returns requires balancing historical returns with both theoretical considerations and current market conditions. Expected Returns summarizes the state of knowledge on all of these topics, providing extensive empirical evidence, surveys of risk-based and behavioral theories, and practical insights. "This is the best book on active management ever written - and it achieves that status without mentioning a single stock or bond by name. Anyone who performs the rigorous analysis Ilmanen describes - admittedly a neat trick, since the world's most sophisticated investors struggle to do it successfully - will beat the market." Laurence B. Siegel, Former Director of Research, The Ford Foundation "Antti Ilmanen shows the way forward for the investment management profession in this remarkable book. In a comprehensive and impressive way, he combines financial theory, historical performance data and forward-looking indicators, into a consistent framework for assessing expected returns and risk. His approach is both scientific and practical, based on decades of studies and his own trading experience. With a touch of personal wisdom and humility, Ilmanen's book is a fascinating and educational journey into the future of investment management." Knut N. Kjaer, Founding CEO of the Norwegian Government Pension Fund/NBIM and former president of RiskMetrics Group "Ilmanen's wonderful book manages to be exquisitely readable while covering just about every aspect of the investment process. Filled with many, many fresh and useful insights. This volume deserves to be read and then kept close at hand - because it is sure to be needed again and again." Martin L. Leibowitz, Managing Director, Morgan Stanley, and former CIO, TIAA-CREF "Job one for any investor is to estimate asset class returns. For the first time, Antti Ilmanen has assembled into one volume all of the tools necessary for this task: for the working money manager, a unique treasure trove of analytical techniques and empirical evidence; for the academic, a comprehensive guide to the relevant academic literature; and for the consultant, a blinding light with which to illuminate performance. Expected Returns is destined to occupy the front shelves of investment professionals around the world." William J. Bernstein, author of The Intelligent Asset Allocator, The Birth of Plenty, and A Splendid Exchange, and co-principal of Efficient Frontier Advisors "Antti's synthesis of experience and theory has given us a book which fills a major gap in the literature on investing. Amazing, but true, this is the first book dedicated to the critical and challenging task of estimating how much we should expect to earn on our investments. This illuminating book, teaming with valuable insights that have never before been gathered under one roof, cannot fail to make the reader a more successful and discerning investor." Victor Haghani, Associate Lecturer, London School of Economics, and former founding partner of LTCM "Ilmanen has written a thorough and detailed analysis of one of the central issues in investing." Ken French, Heidt Professor of Finance, Dartmouth College "Investors' decisions should be evidence based. Antti Ilmanen assembles a global body of evidence, and interprets it with insight. Read this book and you will improve your understanding of the future." Elroy Dimson, Emeritus Professor of Finance, London Business School "If I could choose only one book on active management, I would choose Expected Returns. This book is extremely thorough and well researched, yet direct and to the point." Roger G.
