The go-to guide for serious investors seeking long-term success, Winning the Loser’s Game explains clearly the all-important lessons learned over half a century working with the world’s leading investment experts.

Called “Wall Street’s wisest man” by Money magazine, Charles Ellis converts the expertise he has developed as a consultant to the world’s largest pension, endowment and sovereign wealth funds and as a teacher at Harvard, Yale and Princeton into candid, pithy, easy to use chapters on how to succeed as an investor.

This final edition of this popular book―it has already sold over 500,000 copies―is packed with important up to the minute facts and insights into...
· Why indexing continues to out-perform “active” indexing.
· Why fees are much higher than most of us realize.
· How 401(k) plans can and should be modernized.
· Why understanding behavioral economics is so important for all investors.

With Winning the Loser’s Game, you have anything you need to identify your unique investment objectives, develop a realistic and powerful investment program, and enjoy superior results.

In 2 – 3 hours of easy reading, you can have the same informed and candid advice that his clients gladly pay big fees to get from Charles Ellis. You’ll also have fun.
