Expected Returns: An Investor's Guide to Harvesting Market Rewards (The Wiley Finance Series) 暂无报价
The author Antti Ilmanen has completed a truly monumental task - compiling his knowledge about return expectations from years as a highly respected investment strategist on Wall Street with his expert knowledge of academic finance research. After starting at the Finnish Central Bank as a fixed income fund mamanger and asset allocation professional, he fulfilled his desire to pursue finance research full time with a PhD in Finance at the University Chicago's GSB. Having published his PhD thesis in the Journal of Finance, he joined Salomon Brothers as a global fixed income strategist at first in New York and subsequently in both London & Frankfurt. He is currently at a well-known major hedge fund in London. Despite his passion for the Chicago brand of finance, he has never lost sight of his conviction that asset returns vary through time, not the least because expected returns are changing when passing through the stages of business cycles - which makes them partially predictable. Therefore, rather than engaging in a windmill fight about efficient markets, he has strived to understand what economic forces are driving these changes, and with what kind of strategies that knowledge can be utilized to manage money. His brand new book is the result of that long and very succesful pursuit. The foreword by AQR's Cliff Asness will give you also some humorous aspects of Antti's passion to improve his and our knowledge as I could never convey it. And I agree with Cliff that it is your loss, if you don't take the time to read this book, especially if you are interested in a broad spectrum of asset classes to invest in: the author goes beyond global bonds and equities to include commodities, private equity, hedge funds and real estate. The book is now available in the US, and I am recommending it highly!
