In today's volatile market, investors are seeking new ways to lower their risk profile. For author Matthew Tuttle, the best means of decreasing risk is to look towards large university endowments which have consistently beaten the stock market while maintaining a low level of risk. How Harvard and Yale Beat the Market explores the benefits of endowment investing and shows readers how to structure their individual investment endeavors around an endowment-type portfolio. While the average investor doesn't have access to many of the money managers and vehicles that high-profile endowments use, they can still learn from the investment strategies outlined here and implement them in their own investment activities. Filled with timely tips and practical advice from an expert who designs portfolios based on endowment investment strategies, How Harvard and Yale Beat the Market will put readers in a better position to achieve investment success.
