Intelligent Investing is a one-stop-guide for investment professionals who need to better think though their investment rules, behaviour or procedures before allocating capital. History (and the collapse of several pension funds) has shown us that a high percentage of investments fail, and that more consideration needs to be put into key decisions such as passive vs. active management, dynamic vs. active asset allocation and manager selection and monitoring. Written by a seasoned finance practitioner, this book will guide readers through everything they need to consider in the investment planning process, from identifying the risk/return profile (i.e. the type of investor you are), to understanding the key concepts - alpha, beta, liquidity and volatility, and rebalancing an investment portfolio. Readers will come away with clear and practical guidance on how to carry out a full strategic review of their investment plans, allowing them to better allocate their resources for maximum investment returns within their own defined risk parameters.
