Jacket Text

The world of investing normally sees experts telling us the 'right' way to manage our money. How often do these experts pull back the curtain and tell us how they invest their own money? Never.

How I Invest My Money changes that.

In this unprecedented collection, 25 financial experts share how they navigate markets with their own capital. In this honest rendering of how they invest, save, spend, give, and borrow, this group of portfolio managers, financial advisors, venture capitalists and other experts detail the 'how' and the 'why' of their investments. They share stories about their childhood, their families, the struggles they face and the aspirations they hold. Sometimes raw, always revealing, these stories detail the indelible relationship between our money and our values.

Taken as a whole, these essays powerfully demonstrate that there is no single 'right' way to save, spend, and invest. We see a kaleidoscope of perspectives on stocks, bonds, real assets, funds, charity, and other means of achieving the life one desires. With engaging illustrations throughout by Carl Richards, How I Invest My Money inspires readers to think creatively about their financial decisions and how money figures in the broader quest for a contented life.

Professional Reviews

“Josh Brown and Brian Portnoy have put together a unique anthology—people rarely get to hear how financial experts invest their own money. What’s fascinating is that there are almost as many investment strategies as authors, telling us that what’s important is finding a process and strategy that works for you. I highly recommend reading “How I Invest Ny Money,” I think you’ll learn a lot and learn that even the experts have very different paths to investment success” James P. O’Shaughnessy, Chairman O’Shaughnessy Asset Management and author of “What Works on Wall Street, 4th Edition.”
