Praise for Balanced Asset Allocation
"Alex Shahidi's book is a magistral piece that will be enjoyed by anyone with a serious interest in investing and asset allocation. The intellectual rigor with which Shahidi leads the reader from beginning to end is breathtaking, debunking many preconceived ideas from the institutional world while coming up with many novel and often counterintuitive ones. Through an analysis of various economic environments (past and future), Shahidi dissects the shifting correlations (and inverse correlations) between various asset classes (equities, fixed income, inflation protected securities, commodities...). This book is most timely in today's deleveraging, and possibly low return, world."
Charles de Vaulx, Chief Investment Officer and Portfolio Manager, International Value Advisers (IVA), and recipient of Morningstar's "International Stock Manager of the Year" award in 2001
"Building balance as described herein should be the foundation of all portfolios; this book is essential reading for any investor. Alex distills his comprehensive understanding of the economy, risk assets, and portfolio construction to its essence. The result is to make these valuable concepts accessible to a wide audience. Assimilating the wisdom in this book will increase the dependability of any portfolio."
Peter Joers, III, Co-Founder, Greenline Partners; former Client Advisor at Bridgewater Associates
"For many investors the most critical decision they make is in choosing their default portfolio. Yet for how important this decision is, remarkably little that is useful has been written. Alex does a phenomenal job proposing a simple yet effective solution. Balanced Asset Allocation is one of those rare books that is both easy to read and provides great insights."
Nick Nanda, Co-Founder, Kaleidoscope Capital; former Portfolio Manager on the Asset Allocation team at Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo & Co (GMO)
"There are many books on investing, but precious few that buck the consensus in a logical, well-argued manner. Read Alex Shahidi's book with an open mind and you are sure to become a better investor, even if you disagree with his unconventional analysis."
Samuel Lee, Strategist, Morningstar
"Portfolios are simply not well balanced. In fact, most portfolios are so inadequately balanced that the risks of underperformance are much greater than investors realize."—From the Introduction
Balanced Asset Allocation introduces the core concepts behind constructing a truly balanced portfolio, which is vastly different from the traditional 60 percent stock, 40 percent bond allocation. The emphasis is on understanding what fundamentally drives asset class returns and then building balanced portfolios based on these reliable relationships. The end result is a portfolio that is indifferent to the economic climate, in contrast to the conventional portfolio that is highly dependent on a strong economic outcome. Step by step, Alex Shahidi—a leading investment consultant—charts an investment strategy that is extremely simple, easy to implement, and gaining traction among the largest, most sophisticated investors in the world. The author also reveals how to avoid the most common investment tactics that expose portfolios to major, unanticipated risks.
Alex Shahidi analyzes the major asset classes through a new balanced portfolio lens. By viewing stocks, bonds, commodities, and other market segments through this fresh perspective, investors will likely reach a different, unconventional conclusion about the role of each asset class. Shahidi defines the specific steps for building a balanced portfolio and clearly demonstrates the benefits by providing long-term historical returns that support the core concepts presented. In addition to the text, the companion website serves as an ongoing resource.
For anyone who wants to manage an investment portfolio and appreciates the importance of maintaining an efficient asset allocation, Balanced Asset Allocation: How to Profit in Any Economic Climate offers an easy-to-approach, timeless examination of the topic that can be put to use immediately.
