Praise for The Ivy Portfolio

We all know that the most impressive investment returns are from endowment funds and in particular Yale and Harvard. Faber and Richardson take us inside these two funds and show us how to replicate that model for our portfolios. The Ivy Portfolio is an easy to read and understand book that will make the process of asset allocation and investment easier for their readers. And in light of the recent market turmoil, its lessons are even more important.
