Investing for the Long Term
By Francisco Parames
Summary via publisher (Wiley)
World-renowned investor Francisco García Paramés shares his advice and tips on making smart investments in this must-have book for those looking to make smarter choices for their portfolio. Investing for the Long Term is divided in two parts. The first is formed by three chapters covering Francisco’s education and first steps, his initial experience as an investor working alone, and the team work after 2003. The second part of the book covers the cornerstones of Francisco’s philosophy. It starts with a chapter in Austrian economics, in his view the only sensible approach to economics, which has helped him enormously over the years. It follows with an explanation of why one has to invest in real assets, and specifically in shares, to maintain the purchasing power of ones savings, avoiding paper money (fixed income) at all costs.
