Publisher's Summary

Many of us have been conditioned to believe that investing is too difficult and time-consuming to attempt on our own. With so many products to choose from and so many risks involved, a financial "professional" is the only person qualified to handle the money you'll retire on some day, right? The truth is, no one cares more about your money than you do. And with a basic understanding of the investment process and the time-tested strategy offered here, you can successfully manage your own portfolio in less than 20 minutes a year.

In The Gone Fishin' Portfolio, author Alexander Green details an effective yet simple approach to investing that embraces the uncertainty of financial markets, and reveals how you can generate exceptional results during both good times and bad. Discover how the "Gone Fishin' Portfolio" will allow you to earn superior returns, reduce risk, minimize taxes, and eliminate Wall Street's mountain of fees. Divided into three comprehensive parts - Get Wise, Get Wealthy, and Get on with Your Life - this reliable resource:

  • Discusses the relationship between risk and reward in financial markets, and reveals how the investment industry really works
  • Unveils the "Gone Fishin' Portfolio," addresses why it's arguably the safest and simplest way to reach your long-term financial goals, and explores the financial and psychological challenges you're likely to face in the years ahead
  • Examines what it means to take your financial destiny into your hands and, at the same time, reclaim your most precious resource - your time

      "everything in this program can be said in 3 points"

      you can summarize everything into 3 points
      1.) diversify into three sections: stocks, bonds, indexes/mutual funds
      2.) divide your investment portfolio into two sections: 40% is to be invested in foreign markets and 60% are to be invested in local markets
      3.) when one of your three sections are doing well, you pull money out and place the additional cash into the lower preforming sections to keep it balanced.

      do that and the author said you will become balanced and wealthy.

      I said all of that in less than 500 characters ... NOT 6 hours of audio!

      "2/3-ok-advise; 1/3 paid for commercial"

      The first part of the book tells you why all of us should know that we know nothing. As an investor, if you haven't found that out yet it will save you a lot of money in the future. If you appreciate Mr. Green's advise, saving is the basis of all financial planning anyway. The second part of the book explains an easy way to manage your stock investment. Scintific literature suggests that you apply his rebalancing process to other asset classes - but the core of his adise is correct, hands on and easy to apply. In the third part of the book Mr. Green tells you - who, by now, knows that we all know nothing - why he knows more than anyone else and thus, why you should sign up to his newsletter. Advertisement is ok. However, it should reduce the price of the book and not be paid for by the reader.

      "The Gone Fishin' Portfolio"

      The most applicable investment book --pertaining to retirement/long term savings plan-- that I have ever read (and I have read quite a few). The book does a fantastic job of explaining the advantages of his portfolio, and he gives a step by step explanation of his positions (ticker symbol included) as well as his rationale for each position. I will likely utilize his portfolio for my retirement account because I agree that the portfolio will likely outperform the vast majority of financial advisers: at least net of fees.
