In finance, as in life, there's no such thing as a free lunch-unless you're well diversified. The push toward diversification inspires many investors to buy index funds, which is a smart move. But most people have missed the chance to diversify over their investing lifecycle. Now, for the first time, Ian Ayres and Barry Nalebuff-two of the most innovative thinkers in business, law, and economics-present investors with a set of tools that will allow us to diversify our portfolios over time, a radical innovation. By leveraging our portfolios when we're young (and leveraging less as we get older), nearly all investors can reduce risk while improving returns. Clearly written and extensively supported by ground-breaking research, Lifecycle Investing presents a simple idea for individual investors that promises to radically transform how all of us retire.

Professional reviews

"Ian Ayres and Barry Nalebuff, both economists and professors at Yale University, have come up with an idea they believe will help long-term investors earn higher returns with lower risk: borrow money to invest in stocks when you're young. It's a controversial strategy that can use the help of a persuasive narrator. Gerry Gartenberg handles the task skillfully, navigating this well-written but sometimes technical text with ease. He moves at a fast pace during the conversational passages and slows down appropriately when working through the calculations. While some of the mathematical illustrations are hard to follow on audio, all of the book's diagrams and tables are available on the book's Web site. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
