Constructing an investment portfolio is not a “one-size-fits-all” undertaking. Every investor has his or her own personality. Successful investing begins with knowing yourself – knowing how much risk you can take, the amount of time you can spend, your personal strengths and weaknesses, etc. What works for your friend, or your advisor, or Warren Buffett, may not necessarily work for you. Following them blindly can lead to a disastrous mismatch with your own style. In Personality-Driven Portfolio, author Sam Phoen approaches this problem from a revolutionary angle. Through a series of questions, the reader is first shown how to evaluate his/her investment personality: “Am I an Egoistic Elephant, a Diligent Deer, a Cagey Crab, or a Busy Bee?” Each personality type needs to take a different investment approach. A portfolio that suits the Egoistic Elephant, for example, will turn the Busy Bee or Cagey Crab into a nervous wreck! Targeted at investors at all levels of experience, this book is a practical guide on how to put together a “bespoke” portfolio, and on top of that, how to manage and rebalance the portfolio when necessary, so as to produce sustained results over the long term.

With few exceptions, books on personal finance focus on investing. And with few exceptions, these same books focus on the general public. This book takes a comprehensive approach to the subject, directed to the ultra-high net worth reader, filling this void. While there is no shortage of experts in legal, tax, investment, and other matters, in many ways, ultra-high net worth individuals are underserved, even as they are confronted with potentially increasing challenges to the growth and protection of their wealth. Planning strategies lacking a foundation of client-driven values and purpose, coordination and a mechanism for ongoing review and maintenance result in suboptimal outcomes. As a Certified Financial Planner Professional with over 30 years of experience serving individuals with substantial wealth, Richard Rojeck presents an alternative approach, one based upon a comprehensive planning process. He addresses the eight key planning areas for the ultra-high net worth individual, describing the top strategies within each. He challenges you to assess your current planning and provides guidance on how to select an often-missing member of the advisory team. With a readable and approachable style, this book will help you more effectively grow and protect your assets for yourself, your family, and your charitable causes.

This book is a cross between investing secrets and neuroscience, written by an Investment Adviser who deals with high net worth individuals on a daily basis. The different temperaments of her clients and the way they make decisions that confront them, fascinate as much as frustrate her. Being confined by an industry where Advisers are allowed only to advise their clients and not make decisions for them, how her clients decide is the biggest angst of her job. Her clients, most of whom do not deal with the financial markets on a daily basis, are required to make a “yes” or “no” decision to buying, selling or holding on to certain investments, sometimes for a large sum of their savings, with just a phone call or email attached with a short explanation or opinion. Throwing into the mix, irrational financial market at times and fast moving share prices, this is often not an easy task for most. The author finds that though confronted by similar sets of uncertain market variables, clients often make decisions quite differently. Over the sixteen years of dealing with different investors, she has considered and mulled over many factors that possibly set investors apart, from those who make winning decisions to those who don't. The author finally pinned down four major elements. This book does not just reveal these four elements but also describe how we can all have them – through a new brain. Readers will find the plain explanations of our brain easy to understand and at the same time intrigued by how easily we can all re-wire our brains, for greater success.

Private placement life insurance (PPLI) was once the exclusive domain of wealthy investors willing to tackle the logistical challenges of the offshore insurance market. The investment portfolio, tax, and estate-planning applications, and ongoing investment potential of these policies made the effort worthwhile. In recent years, though, a number of U.S.-based insurance companies have developed similar policies that meet all U.S. insurance, investment, and tax regulations. PPLI is becoming a fundamental component of effective tax, trust, and estate planning, but few sources have been available to detail the best practices—until now. The PPLI Solution can serve as a resource for effective execution. Written by leading practitioners, the book will position advisers to capitalize as PPLI expands further into the high-net-worth market and becomes available to individuals with an investable net worth as low as $1 million. Few investors—whatever their net worth—will want to venture into the PPLI market without guidance. The PPLI Solution addresses the needs of investment managers, consultants, attorneys, and accountants who want to achieve the broad understanding of PPLI's applications required of those providing advice. It can serve as an authoritative source for anyone—including investors—seeking to know more about PPLI’s nearly perfect tax efficiency, solid creditor protection, and powerful means of creating wealth.

The practical guide to direct investing strategies and best practices The Complete Direct Investing Handbook provides comprehensive guidelines, principles and practical perspectives on this increasingly attractive private equity investment strategy. Interviews with leading family office investors, qualified private equity buyers, and top direct investing advisors provide essential insights, and attention to the nuanced processes of direct investing. The books is a hands-on resource for family offices and those investors interested in generating returns through private company ownership to be more effective in creating returns in a complex market. Direct investing best practices are explored in-depth, with guidance on strategy and the evaluation and assessment of various investment opportunities. The process begins with a codified and specific investment goal, and a robust strategy tailored to the investor's individual needs. Useful insight on 'narrowing the field' helps investors select the appropriate opportunities to meet their investment goals, and practical tools help streamline the process of capital deployment and in turn providing more opportunities to achieve desired returns. Despite the growing interest in direct investing, there is little public information available to investors and there is a lack of transparency into practical standards. This book bridges the gap between strategy and execution, with comprehensive guidance and real-world insights. Define and craft a focused investment thesis and appropriate timeline specific to your needs Identify the right type, size, duration, and risk profile aligned to your investment objectives Gain perspective on real-world direct investing and a deeper understanding of the risks and rewards Better understand best practices and institutional investment rigor to develop bespoke processes and policies that create better outcomes for independent investors Historically, extraordinary wealth has been created through equity in privately-held enterprise. Today, family offices and direct investors are looking more and more toward large capital deployment in early-stage and growth-oriented private equity investments, but are constrained by a lack of informed, established practices. The Complete Direct Investing Handbook provides the much-needed guidance and tools that can improve direct investment outcomes.

Stop Investing Like They Tell You is a practical guide to overcoming the potentially ruinous flaws in an investment portfolio. Advisors, pundits, and academics all parrot the same traditional paradigm of a stock-and-bond-only investment strategy. But what if they’re wrong? After operating under the umbrella of a large brokerage firm for over five years, Stephen Spicer came to realize that his personal investment strategy was incongruent with what he was supposed to, or even allowed to, recommend and grew increasingly uncomfortable with the prescribed advice. Unafraid to challenge the traditional paradigms of a broken system, Stephen built Spicer Capital to address his clients’ (and his own) investment and financial planning concerns. In Stop Investing Like They Tell You, Stephen Spicer, CFP®, challenges traditional advice and helps investors understand the four most pressing concerns for their portfolio, gain confidence in their investment portfolio, and better protect and grow their life savings no matter what happens.
