INVEST LIKE THE BEST: THE LOW-RISK ROAD TO HIGH RETURNS
The best practices of the most successful investors—with winning track records that span decades—can be clearly defined, easily understood, and simply measured in real time. But, very few people take the time to understand and follow them.
After nearly forty years as an analyst, trader, and investor, Chris Belchamber reveals the most common pitfalls, barriers, habits, and beliefs that can send investors in the wrong direction, with sometimes devastating consequences.
Registered Investment Adviser - Chris Belchamber holds a Math MA from Oxford University. He has been an investment professional since 1984. His first investment book was published by Credit Suisse First Boston in 1988. He was recruited by JPMorgan in 1989 to run their UK Sterling Bond Sales and Trading and then focused on Proprietary Trading, where he was promoted to Managing Director. He presented JPMorgan’s UK Bond Market’s development paper, endorsed by Margeret Thatcher, to the Bank of England in 1989. In 2003, he started his RIA in the US. He enjoys music, reading, writing, and almost any sport, and is currently an active golfer.
Whether your investment journey has just begun or you have decades of experience, it is all too easy to fall into believing commonly quoted and overly simplistic assumptions about investing. However, the crucial complexity of markets lies beyond unsubstantiated myths and mantras. The wisdom and experience of the great investment practitioners—our Best Investors—addresses market reality, exposes confused thinking, and reveals a clearer and surprisingly simple structure that can be easily understood and adopted.
In life and investing, I have found that the best way to evolve starts with finding out who is best at what they do, under stand it, and then incorporate it into your own process.
Investing is all about numbers, so it isn’t hard to identify the few who qualify to be called “Best Investors.” This group includes Ray Dalio, Seth Klarman, Stan Druckenmiller, Jim Simons, and others whose insights inform my own investment process and this book. The secrets, though, lie beyond just the numbers they have achieved over decades. For deep insight into how they achieved durable success, you also need to look at their journeys, discoveries, and choices—and what they all have in common.
Doing so will focus your investment process and remove the mystery from the big investing questions that come up all the time, which this book will address. So, here are some questions I will ask again at the end of the journey to Invest Like the Best. At the end of this book, I believe that most investors will consider them in a new light.
