Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

DIY Financial Advisor gives individual investors the information and tools they need to take control of their hard-earned money and manage their own wealth—no matter how much or how little they have. The key advantage any individual investor has over so-called "institutional" investors is the ability to make long-term investment decisions that maximize after-tax, after-fee, and risk-adjusted performance, without fear of a misalignment of incentives. Those who own the money are the best stewards of the money.

In this essential resource, Wesley R. Gray, Jack R. Vogel, and David P. Foulke show what it takes to stop relying on so-called experts and become a savvy investor. The authors outline an investment strategy that reduces fees, banishes psychological fears and traps, and shows how to minimize taxes by limiting trading activity, engaging in smart planning, and by following some simple rules.

DIY Financial Advisor empowers investors to maintain direct control of their portfolios and shows how to implement simple quantitative models that can beat the experts. In easy-to-understand terms, they explain the vital importance of sticking to the FACTS (fees, access, complexity, taxes, and search). This proven framework outlines straightforward concepts that apply to everyone, from the middle-class to the mega-rich.

DIY Financial Advisor is as timely as it is informative. The investment industry is undergoing a significant shift due in part to the use of automated investment strategies that do not require a financial advisor's involvement. Let DIY Financial Advisor be your hands-on guide for making your money work for you—not for someone else!
