Ralph Wanger is Founding Partner of Chicago's Wanger Asset Management, which is responsible for more than $5 billion in three mutual funds -- Acorn, Acorn International, and Acorn USA -- and two variable annuities, Wanger Advisors Trust US and International. Acorn, created in 1970 to specialize in the stocks of small, rapidly growing companies, has one of the best long-term performance records in the mutual fund industry. A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with a master's degree from the same university, Wanger lives in Chicago with his wife, Leah, a Harvard Ph.D. and partner in Wanger Asset Management, and their two daughters. He has three children from a previous marriage.From Library Journal:
Wanger has managed the highly successful Acorn mutual fund for over 25 years, investing in undervalued but financially sound smaller companies with superior growth potential. Because there are so many stocks to evaluate, Wanger first looks for growth themes and then identifies specific companies. He doesn't believe in market timing and considers mutual funds to be the best option for most investors. Like Peter Lynch and John Rothchild's One Up on Wall Street (S. & S., 1989), this book does a good job of explaining the basics of investing in a nontechnical and often amusing manner, though it is largely limited to Wanger's own investing experience. Recommended for general and informed readers interested in investing.?Lawrence Maxted, Gannon Univ., Harborcreek, Pa.
