Reviews for How to Invest

'Peter Stanyer and his colleagues have made an outstanding book even better. The authors have created an insightful survey of the current state of investing. Whatever your focus, there is something to enjoy in this new, up-to-date compendium'

Elroy Dimson, Co-author of The Triumph of the Optimists, Professor of Finance, Cambridge Judge Business School 

'

In times of economic uncertainty, it's all too easy to follow the latest new thing in investing rather than sticking with the tried and true. Peter Stanyer and his co-authors continue to add value by encouraging us to look at the evidence of long-term performance. My firm's experience is that their approach results in happier investors

'

Mark Ralphs, Founding Partner of the Financial Planning Corporation LLP 

'How the authors managed to get so much good information and advice into How To Invest is a mystery to me, but they did. Despite the time that many investors spend on issues such as return expectations, risk and timing, the authors remind us that a keep-it-simple focus is the key to an investment strategy that secures an investor's spending plans. If you only have one book in your investing library, make it this one'

Harold Evensky, founder of Evensky & Katz/ Foldes Wealth Management
