Overview

It's no secret that investing is different today. Ideas about how securities are valued and companies operate in the New Economy are changing. Paradigm shifts are never easy; many traditionalists refuse to let go of the past, yet many of today's new investors lack the experience of living through a true bear market. InvestBeyond.com provides a middle ground--drawing from the past while maximizing the opportunities of the future. InvestBeyond.com shows you how to invest in an age of major change, by being open to new possibilities while remaining rational and thoughtful in the face of conflicting information and emotional extremes.

In this groundbreaking work, Victoria Collins, a recognized leader in investment management, reveals how to balance dot-coms and not-coms; how the Internet changes the way markets behave, and what that means you; how the new wave in asset allocation is changing the way we should structure our portfolios; how fundamental laws of value are being reversed, and what methods to use when evaluating your investment options; and the six trends that will shape investment opportunities in the New Economy.

Just when investors needed it most, Victoria Collins has written InvestBeyond.com. Successful investing in the New Economy requires taking a different look at asset allocation.

Barbara Stanny
InvestBeyond.com is brilliant! I haven't read anything like it. This is truly a book whose time has come. Finally, someone not only explains this New Economy clearly and simply, but tells me exactly how to navigate these new, and unfamiliar waters with specific investment strategies. It's a fascinating book written in such a lively, fast-paced style that I couldn't put it down. Really. I read it like a novel. I want everyone I know to read this book before they put another dime in the market. I know I'm glad I did. (Barbara Stanny, Author of Prince Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart about Money)
