INVESTING FOR THE REST OF US - How To Invest In Stocks Using Index Funds: Passive Investing Strategies Everyone Can Use

Investing For The Rest Of Us is an investing guide for people who might not have the time, the inclination, or the skills to closely monitor their investment portfolios. This book shows that most people would be much better off selecting a passive investing strategy and then essentially leaving their investments alone rather than making frequent changes to their investment portfolio.

The book provides a straightforward, practical approach to building a portfolio. It presents several passive investing strategies which have been shown to outperform 80% of professional mutual fund managers. By following the strategies outlined in this book, readers will be able to quickly and easily manage their portfolios. In fact, you could spend as little as an hour or so once a year monitoring your portfolio.

Historically, the stock market’s value has doubled every seven years or so. Many individual investors underperform the market. This book shows the most likely reasons why this happens and how you can avoid these common mistakes.

Over the years, the author has met many people who were confused and overwhelmed by the idea of investing in the stock market. Mr. Wright wrote this book to help people gain a general understanding of how to easily investment their money.

Investing For The Rest Of Us is an easy-to-implement investing approach that everyone can use.

Who This Book Is For:

  • Anyone looking for a straightforward, easy to implement, investing approach that doesn’t require them to closely monitor their investments.
  • Both beginning investors and seasoned investors looking for a new investing strategy.
  • Anyone who wants to learn about passive investing.
  • People who already have money invested in the stock market, but don’t really know where to invest their money.
  • People looking to invest for retirement or other major financial events (buying a new home, their children’s higher education, etc.)
  • People in a transitional employment state. For instance, people moving money from a former employer’s 401(k) account to an IRA account and need to select investment options for that account.

What This Book Is Not:

  • This book will not make you a stock market investing professional. Instead, it is a concise, easy-to-understand primer that offers sound, practical advice for those people who are not intending to closely monitor their investment portfolio.
  • This is not a get-rich-quick book. If you are looking for an investing book that will help you uncover the next stock to make you rich, you will need to look elsewhere. The investing strategies presented in this book will not make you rich overnight, but they will improve the chances that you will do well over the long haul and outperform most professional money managers.
