↠´ Asset Allocation: Balancing Financial Risk, Fifth Edition ↠´ Download by ¶ Roger C. Gibson Good overview of asset allocation with general portfolio examples The author assumes that you already have a basic understanding of investing.
Seems this book is targeted to financial planners That might explain the high price tag originally listed at about 37 then jumped to nearly 50 before falling to 42 and slowly creeping up in price Finally gets to the efficient frontier tools and then just barely mentions the tool used for the examples No references that I could find as to how to acquire this tool Not quite done reading it I expected focus on how to minimize the black swan events No such luck Had to go to journal of financial planning for current thinking on that topic Basically, I think this book is priced too high for what you get.

Roger Gibson has both lectured and written on this subject for many years It is a good reference for financial planners on asset allocation It has been documented by academic studies that proper asset allocation will give you a greater returns than market timing which just doesn t work He follows the KISS principle of keeping it simple Written primarily for professional financial advisors but VERY useful reference for those DIY.
This is the text book on managing assets for the long term Not an easy read but if you re willing to put in the effort following the principles taught by Roger Gibson will deliver a lifetime of rewards.
