We are all investors. We
invest our time, our energy, our money. We invest every single day, as
citizens, as consumers, as businesspeople. At its core, investing involves
connection, exchange, and mutual benefit. Lately, however, the primary,
beneficial function of investing has been overshadowed by ever-more mechanized
iterations of finance. We have created funds of funds, securitizations of
securitizations, and entire firms whose business is based on harvesting the
advantage of microseconds of trading speed.
The Nature of Investing calls for a transformation of the investment process
from the roots up. Drawing on the author’s twenty-plus years of leadership
experience in top investment firms, the book connects real-world finance with
the field of biomimicry. Citing real-life examples and discussing principles
from the natural world, The Nature of Investing shows how we can create an investment framework that
is different from the mechanized one currently employed.
