The markets seem so crazy these days that an investor—and we’re all investors now with our 401(k)s, retirements and college educations to finance—hardly knows where to turn. While we struggle, the affluent seem to do just fine. How do they do it? Two words: asset allocation. No one knows this better than David Darst, one of the world’s foremost and visionary experts on what it take to make the most with your money.

Now Darst distills his immense knowledge into a gem of a guide that anyone can use. Based on a lifetime of clear thinking and innovative research borne out of decades of real-world experience, this audiobook presents the art and science of asset allocation in a crisp, down-to-earth fashion. It’s like having your own chief investment strategist on call, just as the wealthy have, to guide you through the turbulent waters of the global financial markets as you learn:

– practical principles behind the process of managing your money in today’s challenging investment climate;
– the substantial investment returns that the right mix of stocks, bonds, cash, gold, real estate, commodities, and other assets can bring to your portfolio;
– the critical concept of correlation and how to spread your investments among uncorrelated asset classes to enhance returns and reduce the risks of long-term investing.

The wealthy have long known that 80 percent of investment returns are found to come from correct asset allocation. So whether you decide to do it on your own or with the help of a trusted advisor, let Darst put you on a path that will help you maximize your returns and achieve your life goals.
