The Only Proven Road to Investment Success Summary

The Only Proven Road to Investment Success: Everyone's Simple Guide to a Safe Trip by Chandan Sengupta

The frightening fact about saving and investing for the future is that most of us receive no formal training in this area. We trust our financial future to fund managers and brokers who charge exorbitant fees for average and sometimes below-average returns. In "The Only Proven Road to Investment Success", Chandan Sengupta reveals the truth about investing and shows you how to free yourself from the grasps of the professional investment community to become a successful, self-reliant investor-regardless of your age, income, or investment knowledge. Designed for investors at any level, this complete guide - which includes a companion CD-ROM investment program known as Guru - lays out a powerful, yet simple investment plan that will allow you to achieve long-term investment success by maintaining the right asset mix for your portfolio. As you follow the tested investment method found in "The Only Proven Road to Investment Success", you will learn how to: invest in stocks and safe assets such as inflation-protected bonds; choose the right asset mix and invest for future needs with the help of the personal investment advisor found on the companion CD-ROM; take the amount of risk that is right for you and earn the highest rate of return for that level of risk; personally manage your investments with peace of mind; and reduce or defer your tax bill. "The Only Proven Road to Investment Success" provides a simple approach to a tested investment method that is backed by over three decades of extensive scientific research. The eleven rules that make up this method cover both conceptual and practical aspects of investing. As you master each rule, you'll begin to invest with success and avoid the mistakes other investors commonly make. The book includes a summary chapter that is actually a comprehensive mini-investment book that allows you to review the basics quickly and serves as a concise reference source for the future. Whether you're saving for a specific need, such as a child's college education, or looking for the right investment plan to guide you through life and into retirement, "The Only Proven Road to Investment Success", along with Guru - the portfolio management program contained on the companion CD-ROM - is your one-stop reference for easy-to-use investment advice that will last a lifetime.
