In his bestselling Portfolio Management Formulas and The Mathematics of Money Management, Ralph Vince brought the complex mathematics of probability and modern portfolio management theory down to earth for traders and investors. He introduced innovative new ways they could be used to maximize account management decisions. Now, in this groundbreaking new book, Vince takes a quantum leap forward to provide investment professionals with a proven new approach to portfolio management that overturns nearly a half-century of accepted wisdom about asset allocation and money management.
The culmination of Ralph Vince’s years spent probing the limits of the mathematics of portfolio management, The New Money Management elaborates on his celebrated Optimal f notion–a concept which will be familiar to readers of either of Vince’s previous books–to provide a revolutionary portfolio management model designed to optimize account performance, not just in the long run, but at virtually any given point in time.
Unlike traditional models which focus on risk and reward as competing entities, the approach to portfolio construction described in this book concentrates on obtaining optimal synergy among all of the various components of a given portfolio. Unlike previous portfolio models which assumed an a priori distribution to returns, usually with returns being normally distributed, this newmodel is applicable to any distributional form of return.
In The New Money Management, Ralph Vince once again demonstrates his critically acclaimed talent for talking about highly complex concepts in practical, real-world terms. Writing in a lively, anecdotal style, and relying on a bare minimum of math, he gently guides readers through the maze of complex theoretical issues while arming them with a set of easy-to-understand, easy-to-use formulas and investment strategies that they can put into practice immediately.
The New Money Management is an indispensable resource for all investment professionals, especially traders in stocks, options, and futures; institutional investors; and portfolio managers.
