About Assett Allocation: Ballancing Financial Risk
This is a Beacon Hill Course-in-a-Book® – self-study CE courses that are based on popular industry books written specifically for financial advisors.
In Asset Allocation: Balancing Financial Risk, Roger Gibson, CFA, explains how financial advisors can apply historically tested asset allocation principles in their practices. Grounded in the principles of modern portfolio theory, this fifth edition of his investing classic explains how and why asset allocation works. Gibson demonstrates how adding new asset classes to a portfolio improves its risk-adjusted returns and how strategic asset allocation uses, rather than fights, the forces of the capital markets to achieve financial success.
New topics in this edition include:
- The success of multiple-asset-class investing during the stock market's "lost decade"
- Methods for forecasting long-term asset class returns and the limitations of prediction
- The dangers of market timing and the challenges involved in tactical asset allocation strategies--with insights from the field of behavioral finance
- Observations from the Global SIDONI Financial Crisis of 2008 and what it means for the multiple-asset-class investor.
