The Investor's Paradox: The Power of Simplicity in a World of Overwhelming Choice The Investor's Paradox: The Power of Simplicity in a World of Overwhelming Choice

by Brian Portnoy

Book Reviews

"There are a dozen or so classic books on picking stocks, a task relatively few individual investors do today. In contrast, there have been no great texts -- until now -- explaining how to pick fund managers, a task almost every investor, from the richest hedge fund buyer to the smallest 401(k) participant is tasked with doing. Brian Portnoy has produced the first great text on picking fund managers. It not only includes decades worth of valuable insights, it's also one of the best written investment books you'll ever find."
-- Don Phillips, Morningstar

"The Investor's Paradox is totally original, thoroughly engaging, and remarkably well written. It must be considered an important contribution to the literature on how we make decisions about investments in the real world. This book is consistently insightful and often entertaining, offering many examples based on Portnoy's broad experiences. Novice and expert investors alike should take heed of Portnoy's major accomplishment."
-- Emmanuel Roman, CEO, Man Group

"The investment bookshelves are littered with recommendations on picking stocks and allocating assets. The Investors' Paradox addresses the far more relevant topic of manager selection, and it does this superbly. Building from his deep understanding of human behavioral biases, Portnoy's structured approach to evaluating skill cuts through the noise of past performance and marketing materials to deliver a clear and creative framework for choosing investment advisors. Also a gifted writer, Portnoy has written a classic. Highly recommended for anyone making investment decisions."
-- Mark Carhart, Chief Investment Officer, Kepos Capital

"The Investor's Paradox has arrived at just the right time. We face an unprecedented amount of choice in implementing investment strategies, and this insightful book helps filter out the noise to home in on what matters when making these critical decisions, whether you are a sophisticated allocator or an individual investor. I can't think of a better book on how to choose the best investment experts."
-- Ted Seides, Co-Chief Investment Officer and President, Protégé Partners
