Description

In finance, as in life, there's no such thing as a free lunch-unless you're well diversified. The push toward diversification inspires many investors to buy index funds, which is a smart move. But most people have missed the chance to diversify over their investing lifecycle.



Now, for the first time, Ian Ayres and Barry Nalebuff-two of the most innovative thinkers in business, law, and economics-present investors with a set of tools that will allow us to diversify our portfolios over time, a radical innovation. By leveraging our portfolios when we're young (and leveraging less as we get older), nearly all investors can reduce risk while improving returns. Clearly written and extensively supported by ground-breaking research, Lifecycle Investing presents a simple idea for individual investors that promises to radically transform how all of us retire.

    The crux of this investing book is geared toward retirement saving and investing using leverage on equity to multiply earnings over a long horizon to retirement. The authors go to great lengths to prove their theory produces better returns than traditional a methods of passive accumulation and time value. The advice makes some sense with the usual caution of past performance not always guaranteeing future results. It will of course take you a life time to prove it out yourself. And you certainly have to be comfortable with leveraging your retirement savings. Unless you are quite young and will to follow the format the book though having some merit will not be of much practical use for older investors trying to catch up, which is the vast majority.
