Diversification provides a well-known way of getting something close to a free lunch: by spreading money across different kinds of investments, investors can earn the same return with lower risk (or a much higher return for the same amount of risk). This strategy, introduced nearly fifty years ago, led to such strategies as index funds.

What if we were all missing out on another free lunch that’s right under our noses?

In Lifecycle Investing, Barry Nalebuff and Ian Ayres—two of the most innovative thinkers in business, law, and economics—have developed tools that will allow nearly any investor to diversify their portfolios over time. By using leveraging when young—a controversial idea that sparked hate mail when the authors first floated it in the pages of Forbes—investors of all stripes, from those just starting to plan to those getting ready to retire, can substantially reduce overall risk while improving their returns.

In Lifecycle Investing, readers will learn

  • How to figure out the level of exposure and leverage that’s right for you
  • How the Lifecycle Investing strategy would have performed in the historical market
  • Why it will work even if everyone does it
  • When not to adopt the Lifecycle Investing strategy
Clearly written and backed by rigorous research, Lifecycle Investing presents a simple but radical idea that will shake up how we think about retirement investing even as it provides a healthier nest egg in a nicely feathered nest.

From AudioFile:

Ian Ayres and Barry Nalebuff, both economists and professors at Yale University, have come up with an idea they believe will help long-term investors earn higher returns with lower risk: borrow money to invest in stocks when you're young. It's a controversial strategy that can use the help of a persuasive narrator. Gerry Gartenberg handles the task skillfully, navigating this well-written but sometimes technical text with ease. He moves at a fast pace during the conversational passages and slows down appropriately when working through the calculations. While some of the mathematical illustrations are hard to follow on audio, all of the book's diagrams and tables are available on the book's Web site. D.B. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
