Overview

Investing information  is everywhere; there are blogs, newspapers, magazines, and cable TV shows all dedicated to helping individuals invest in smarter and more successful ways. Yet despite all the efforts to educate the public on investing, most people still feel uncomfortable  with how they should actually invest their money. Recent predictions about slowing economic growth, historically low interest rates, and volatile markets have investors scratching their heads about what to do with their money. And more than ever, people are scared about whether they can grow their money enough to last through their lifetime.

Expert investor Timothy McCarthy  has spent the last 30 years in the US and overseas providing investment solutions to individuals and their advisors. He believes that  understanding  how to create  a  truly globally  diverse portfolio while applying the magic of time will help all investors navigate risky markets. McCarthy  also explores the fundamentals of picking and evaluating financial advisors for those who want to understand the principles of investing but not actually do the work themselves. McCarthy  helps guide the reader along a straightforward  path to investment  success by telling engaging and actual stories to illustrate each of his seven lessons of successful investing. The Safe Investor will help even those readers with little interest or aptitude for finance to be comfortable in knowing what to do to manage their life investment plan and how to manage their own advisors.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The Safe Investor is an excellent contemporary discussion about the best practice choices individual investors can make to secure their financial future. It also shows you the mechanical steps you need to take to do this process safely. The book is based on realistic outcomes and shows you how you can grow your nest egg at a reasonable rate of return without taking on too much risk.

This type of actionable information is what a lot of finance books are missing. And McCarthy's focus on actionable implementation make the ideas in The Safe Investor all that more valuable. This is money management best practice, and certainly worth reviewing if you aren't already up to speed.'

    The Safe Investor explains complex financial terms in an interes

    The Safe Investor explains complex financial terms in an interesting semi-autobiographical format. Tim touches the emotional side of finance from
    the first person perspective while describing his experiences. He clearly has rich and vast experience in global investing to bring out
    rich narratives from all over the world.

    The most important message of the book is about risk management. We usually think about risk management by diversifying holdings in a
    portfolio but Tim takes it on a whole new level by explaining SPOF (single point of failure) concept. He suggests triangulation and
    checks from various sources to avoid Bernie Madoff kind of scenarios. The book has lots of practical wisdom to help an investor grow rich
    slowly. The book’s website also offers practical tools and checklists to help an investor in due diligence of an Advisor, and monitor the
    relationship with an advisor on regular basis.

    Tim also shared his own portfolio on his website which reflects his message in the book about diversification. Moreover, he highlights the risk of outliving your investments which is highly relevant for baby boomers. The summaries at the end of each
    chapter are useful for a quick review.
