Free sample

As individuals are becoming more and more responsible for ensuring their own financial future, portfolio or fund management has taken on an increasingly important role in banks' ranges of offerings to their clients. In addition, as interest rates have come down and the stock market has gone up and come down again, clients have a choice of leaving their saving in deposit accounts, or putting those savings in unit trusts or investment portfolios which invest in equities and/or bonds. Individuals are becoming aware that they might need to top up government pension allocations. Likewise, corporations who run employee pension schemes have to ensure that they are able to cover their current and future liabilities. Investing in unit trusts or mutual funds is one way for individuals and corporations alike to potentially enhance the returns on their savings.

Introduction to Portfolio Management covers the:
*Theoretical underpinnings of portfolio management
*Basics of portfolio construction
*Constraints to be considered when building a client portfolio
*Types of analysis used for asset allocation and stock selection
*Main types of funds available to investors

*Inspired from the basic entry level training courses that have been developed by major international banks worldwide.
*Will enable MSc Finance students, MBA students and those already in the finance profession to gain an understanding of the basic information and principles underlying the topic under discussion
*Questions with answers, study topics, practical "real world" examples and text with an extensive bibliography and references ensure learning outcomes can be immediately applied

Timothy Ferriss
The New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Body shows readers how to live more and work less, now with more than 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content.

Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.

This step-by-step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:
• How Tim went from $40,000 per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per month and 4 hours per week
• How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want
• How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs
• How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist
• How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and frequent “mini-retirements”

The new expanded edition of Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Workweek includes:
• More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
• Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating e-mail, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than $8 a meal
• How Lifestyle Design principles can be suited to unpredictable economic times
• The latest tools and tricks, as well as high-tech shortcuts, for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either
