Money Wise: How to Create, Grow, and Preserve your Wealth
How to Create, Grow, and Preserve Your WealthBook - 2008
Financial advisers, newspapers, television, and radio reports often qualify information about mutual funds and other investments as "according to Lipper." They all mean the various Lipper Fund Indices developed by Mike Lipper. Now you can learn, as he has learned, the lessons of creating, managing, and preserving wealth. These lessons are vital for the newly wealthy, the would-be wealthy, the second and third generations of wealth, investment advisers and other wealth managers, and charities and other nonprofits. They come straight from Mike's own fifty years of experience as an investor and as a member of a family that has spent four generations on Wall Street.
Mike's ideas have direct application to you:
- How to measure your wealth.
- You as a balance sheet.
- You as the single biggest contributor to your satisfaction as an investor.
- What kind or kinds of investor personalities describe you.
- When and how to use unconventional thinking.
- When you should use multiple portfolios.
- How to share your wealth with others.
There are millions of millionaires in the United States. If you've gotten there, or want to get there, this book will help you answer the question: What now?
From the New York Society of Security Analysts
Michael Lipper's book is very timely, especially considering the current turbulence in the financial markets. So often these days, many of us get questions about money management from family, friends, and customers. Often these questions come from people who need an analytical structure to respond to what is hitting them with shocking speed.
Two of Michael Lipper's statements really hit home. First, is the dangerous failure to think about the "consequences of being wrong." Second, is "if you do not understand the game, do not play." This comes from his experience of avoiding Enron after reading its annual report, and being unable to figure out how they got such big earnings out of their balance sheet." These and other lessons come from a long career in the financial business.
"Money Wise" is filled with explanations and lessons on essential topics such as risk, your personal balance sheet, picking money managers, the dangers in trading, investor psychology, hedge funds, private equity, and investing in new trends. Read this book and give it to those asking questions on how to create and keep wealth.
