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.
