From the Inside Flap:

Over the past twenty years, the Yale University and HarvardUniversity endowments have achieved unprecedented investmentsuccess. Since 1985, the Yale University endowment returned 16.62%per year, easily surpassing the S&P 500 Index's 11.98% return.The Harvard University endowment returned over 15% a year—andboth endowments achieved these results with significantly lessvolatility than the S&P 500.

Despite the general success of the top endowments, 2008 proveddifficult for many buy-and-hold investors as well as theendowments. Many asset classes finished the year with declines of30% or more.

The Ivy Portfolio shows how individual investors canmimic the stellar long-term investment track records of these topendowments while avoiding bear markets like 2008.

The Ivy Portfolio begins by examining the theory,process, and discipline behind the success of the Yale Universityand Harvard University endowments. It demystifies the techniquesthat the ivory-tower academic practitioners use to manage theirportfolios and shows step by step how an individual investor canhope to duplicate their returns using an innovative ETF-basedinvestment strategy.

The Ivy Portfolio then demonstrates a simple tacticalasset approach to dampen the impact of bear markets on long-terminvestment results. The model would have protected an investor fromthe carnage of 2008, all while eliminating the uncertainty andemotions of investing.

The Ivy Portfolio also showcases a method to piggybackthe stock-picking abilities of top hedge funds, allowing investorsto achieve greater success by following the valuation insights ofthe smart money.

The Ivy Portfolio will show investors exactly how allthis can be accomplished—and allow them to achieve anunparalleled level of investment success in the process.
