The Gone Fishin' Portfolio: Get Wise, Get Wealthy...and Get on With Your Life by Alexander Green

A timeless investment guide that reveals how to consistently earn market-beating returns while reducing risk

What every investor needs is a battle-tested strategy that embraces the uncertainty of financial markets-and life in general. One that will yield market-beating portfolio returns in both good times and bad. The Gone Fishin' Portfolio shows you what that strategy is, how it works, and why you should begin using it immediately.

The innovative approach outlined throughout these pages will help investors enjoy a notably high probability of success by using an investment strategy based on the notion that nobody knows what the market is likely to do next, which, in effect, allows investors to capitalize on uncertainty.

  • Details one of the safest and simplest ways to reach your long-term financial goals, and explores the financial and psychological challenges you're likely to face in the years ahead
  • The "Gone Fishin' Portfolio" is based on a Nobel Prize-winning investment strategy that takes just twenty minutes to implement
  • Discusses the relationship between risk and reward in financial markets, and reveals how the investment industry really works

The Gone Fishin' Portfolio will allow you to reach your most important investment goals, beat Wall Street at its own game, and achieve the financial independence you deserve.

getAbstract recommends this excellent, straightforward, hype-free and solidly grounded guide to investing. Research analyst and investment advisor Alexander Green draws on portfolio management methods used by the world's biggest institutional investors. He goes straight to the basics, emphasizing financial discipline, saving and awareness of costs. The portfolio he recommends consists entirely of low-cost Vanguard mutual funds, mostly index funds. He recommends keeping 70% of your portfolio in stocks. That recommendation may seem risky, especially in view of volatile stock market performance. However, he cites historical and financial research to demonstrate that, over time, equities have been the highest returning class of investments, even during such catastrophes as the Great Depression. This kind of straight talk is an excellent prophylactic against both the panic of crashes and the euphoria of bubbles. More than 1 year ago
This book provided a very good comparison of ETF and index investing for individual investors wishing to use an asset allocation method. It also provided an asset allocation model that includes some assets not typically seen in a traditional asset allocation model, such as gold and REIT's. Gold and REIT's have not been negatively correlated with stocks over the past year, therefore, the reason for including them in the model did not hold true recently, but should do well during many stock market downturns. Some degree of market timing would have also been useful, but I have the benefit of 2008 hindsight that Mr. Green did not have while writing the book. Overall, I would highly recommend this book for an individual investor, and I think the model would perform quite well during most investment periods.
