    An excellent book, January 1, 2013

    This complete guide to portfolio construction and management is a very useful book. To the beginner, it should give a flavour of the field to wander. The more advanced student might find it useful for revision purposes, as well as to get an insight in some of the debated aspects of the topic. Last but not least, the practitioner might use it to enrich his own practice with that of other professionals.

    According to the author, the primary objective of portfolio management is to preserve the capital in real terms. A second objective is to let it grow (in real terms), be it only in modest proportions. In this book, the approach and tools required to achieve these objectives are very well set out in the context of both the investor and the financial markets.

    As to the investor, the reader is reminded that there is no successful portfolio management without consideration for the investor’s capacity and willingness to take risk, as well as for is situation and reference point (“benchmark”). On the other hand, the main characteristics of assets and financial markets are put forward in the context of macro and micro economics, of the developments of behavioural finance, as well as of the main theoretical developments of the past eighty years.

    Last but not least, the reader’s attention is drawn to a simple principle throughout the whole book: attention is to be paid first to the risk, then to return expectation. A wise principle, indeed, that should guide all professional in the field, especially when dealing with other’s money.

    Great coverage without depth, December 24, 2014

    Almost but no cigar. This is a great book with easy to understand coverage of the Portfolio construction terminology and is good for a lay person to get an excellent overview of portfolio construction. This book completely lacks concrete examples which is common to nearly all “portfolio construction” related books I have read. Should the authors feel so inclined to add practical examples I would say this would be the reference book for nearly everyone to purchase however for now this book is just a good overview of the topic.
