The Investor's Paradox
The Power of Simplicity in a World of Overwhelming Choice
by Brian Portnoy

Investors are in a jam. A troubled global economy, volatile markets, and a bewildering array of choices create a dangerous landscape for individual and institutional investors alike. To meet this challenge, most of us rely on professionals to take risk on our behalf. Here, accomplished analyst and investor Brian Portnoy delivers a powerful framework for choosing the right money managers and investment vehicles--and avoiding the losers.

Portnoy reveals that the right answers are found by confronting our own subconscious biases and quirks. A paradox we all face is the natural desire for more choice in our lives, yet the more we have, the less satisfied we become--whether we're at the grocery store, choosing doctors, or flipping through hundreds of TV channels. So, too, with investing, where there are literally tens of thousands of funds from which to choose. We crave abundant options with which to face down volatile markets, yet the more flexibility we have, the more overwhelmed we become.

Leveraging the fresh insights of behavioral finance, Portnoy demystifies the opaque world of controversial hedge funds, address the limits of mass market mutual funds, and discards the false dichotomy between "traditional" and "alternative" investments.

The Investor's Paradox offers not only practical tools for investment success but also a message empowerment for investors drowning in possibility.
