Risk and the Smart Investor


“De-risking your investments requires knowing that there is much you don’t know.”Risk exists because of one simple fact: Decisions are always based on incomplete information. Therefore, to meet your investment goals over the long term, you must learn to manage the risks associated with a decision-making process that is by nature flawed. Risk and the Smart Investor provides a framework for making such decisions. Avoiding unrealistic promises of completely risk-free investing, world-renowned risk management expert David X Martin familiarizes you with the principles of risk management. Based on Martin’s experience in managing risk at several of the world’s largest financial institutions, this principlebased approach presents a unique perspective that helps you manage the risk in every investment you make. Risk and the Smart Investor provides not only a framework for managing risk in today’s markets, it also prepares you to handle the next financial crisis—which is coming, sooner or later—by separating risk management into four separate processes: * Assessment—know where you are, but accept the fact that you cannot know everything * The Rules of the Game—determine your appetite for risk, diversify accordingly, demand transparency, and institute checks and balances * Decision Making—consider all alternatives, fit your plans into specific time frames, and always have an exit strategy * Reevaluation—continually monitor the outcomes of your decisions and learn from your mistakes
