DIY Financial Advisor: A Simple Solution to Build and Protect Your Wealth

DIY Financial Advisor is a synopsis of our research findings developed while serving as a consultant and asset manager for family offices. By way of background, a family office is a company, or group of people, who manage the wealth a family has gained over generations. The term 'family office' has an element of cachet, and even mystique, because it is usually associated with the mega-wealthy. However, practically speaking, virtually any family that manages its investments—independent of the size of the investment pool—could be considered a family office. The difference is mainly semantic.

DIY Financial Advisor outlines a step-by-step process through which investors can take control of their hard-earned wealth and manage their own family office. Our research indicates that what matters in investing are minimizing psychology traps and managing fees and taxes. These simple concepts apply to all families, not just the ultra-wealthy.

But can—or should—we be managing our own wealth?

Our natural inclination is to succumb to the challenge of portfolio management and let an 'expert' deal with the problem. For a variety of reasons we discuss in this book, we should resist the gut reaction to hire experts. We suggest that investors maintain direct control, or at least a thorough understanding, of how their hard-earned wealth is managed. Our book is meant to be an educational journey that slowly builds confidence in one's own ability to manage a portfolio. We end our book with a potential solution that could be applicable to a wide-variety of investors, from the ultra-high net worth to middle class individuals, all of whom are focused on similar goals of preserving and growing their capital over time.

DIY Financial Advisor is a unique resource. This book is the only comprehensive guide to implementing simple quantitative models that can beat the experts. And it comes at the perfect time, as the investment industry is undergoing a significant shift due in part to the use of automated investment strategies that do not require a financial advisor's involvement. DIY Financial Advisor is an essential text that guides you in making your money work for you—not for someone else!

The Handbook of Alternative Assets Making money from art, rare books, coins and banknotes, forestry, gold and precious metals, stamps, wine and other alternative assets

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 5.00
How to invest money in secure, high-return assets

Alternative assets offer a proven means of diversifying your financial portfolio away from the volatility of the markets. In the past, investors have looked to property, hedge funds or private equity to accomplish this - but the safety and high returns they sought there have perished in the wake of the 2007-2009 financial crisis. As an antidote to this, experienced investment writer Peter Temple here introduces those tangible, and often portable, assets whose returns are impressive but whose value is not so subject to unsustainable bubbles or precipitous collapse.

Including everything from fine wine and rare books to stamps, art and diamonds, these alternative assets can serve as a store of value in the good years as well as in troubled times. Often with restricted supply they offer real security of value. And, though their value is concentrated in capital growth, their liquidity is often impressive; and their aesthetic appeal enduring.

A detailed overview of each sector is presented, including:

- the size and shape of the market, and its key historical and modern trends
- collecting areas and portfolio strategies for investors of all sizes
- the degree of volatility or cyclicality in the market, as well as its liquidity
- the long-term returns that can reasonably be expected based on the past
- whether or not there are tax advantages available
- how best to buy and sell, and through whom.

The book also provides extensive directory resources for where to go for more information - and where to start investing - with each tangible investment area.

This comprehensive and authoritative book shows investors and their advisors how they can use tangible assets as a means of diversifying a portfolio and securing wealth for the long term. It is an essential handbook for anyone interested in making rare, valuable and often beautiful possessions a part of their investment strategy.

Ratios Made Simple A beginner’s guide to the key financial ratios

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 4.99
Ratios provide an extremely effective method of understanding company accounts. At their most basic this usually involves taking one figure from the published accounts and dividing it by another - however, this seemingly simple process can reveal an enormous amount about both the nature and performance of a company.

'Ratios Made Simple' looks at ratios from the perspective of an investor, providing a toolkit for investors to use to accurately analyse a company from its accounts. This book is divided into nine chapters, with each chapter looking at a different aspect of potential concern to an investor:

1. Profitability Ratios
2. Investment Ratios
3. Dividend Cover
4. Margins
5. Gearing
6. Solvency Ratios
7. Efficiency Ratios
8. Policy Ratios
9. Volatility

For each ratio, financial expert Robert Leach provides a detailed definition, explains how it works, describes its use. Investors are also given a simple explanation of how to calculate each ratio, what the ratio means and how the investor should apply the answers in making investment decisions.

This book provides the investor with an essential guide to the use of these powerful analytical tools - tools that should form a vital part of an investor's decision-making process.

Second edition featuring a brand new foreword.

If you had put $10,000 in Buffett's original investing partnership at its inception in 1956, you would have collected about $293,738 by the time he dissolved it at the end of 1969. He had never suffered a down year, even in the severe bear markets of 1957, 1962, 1966, and 1969. When the partnership was wound up, you could have elected to stay with Buffett as a shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., which was spun off from the partnership and became Buffett's investing vehicle. In that event, your $10,000 would by the end of 1986 have turned into well over $5 million.

So, John Train introduces the remarkable story of Warren Buffett in his classic text, 'The Midas Touch'. First published in 1987, 'The Midas Touch' was one of the first books to recognise Warren Buffett's spectacular record, and to attempt to explain how he achieved his success. It is short, lucid and written with style and wit. A worthy testimony to its remarkable subject.

From the back cover of the book:

This is the book that tells readers how to invest like the man known as 'the Wizard of Omaha' (Forbes) and the investor with 'the Midas Touch' .

Warren Buffett is the most successful investor alive - the only member of the Forbes 400 to have earned his fortune entirely through investing. Bestselling author John Train analyzes the strategies, based on the value approach, that have guided Buffett in his remarkable career, strategies that work even though Buffett operates a thousand miles from Wall Street.

Take a bite out of the markets with the Naked Trader!

This book is for anyone who really wants to consistently make money trading shares.

Trading and investing can be tough – most fail. The human mind is to blame. It’s prone to emotion, cluttered with distractions like Twitter and social media, easily trapped by scams. But it’s possible to make money in the markets – and to do so reliably.

Robbie Burns, aka The Naked Trader, has been trading successfully from his home for 15 years – making over £2m tax-free (while eating a lot of toast and watching Game of Thrones). He’s also met and helped thousands of fellow traders at his seminars, seen every possible trading meltdown, and knows exactly what can go wrong – but also how to put it right.

In Trade Like a Shark, Robbie uses his unique firsthand experience and the real-life stories traders have shared with him to expose exactly how the human mind can play havoc with your trading. At the same time he reveals his tried-and-tested methods for overcoming it, showing how to be a shark, gobbling up money from the 'fish' who are full of fear, greed and other emotions. (And also why modelling yourself on Mr Spock can work wonders.)

If you’ve run into problems trading in the stock market – or just want to reinforce good habits – there is no better or wittier guide to the pitfalls that are out there, and some surprisingly effective ways to overcome them. It's a must-read book on trading psychology – without the jargon. Read it and take your trading to the next level now!

Purchase Price

RRP: £ 40.00 Our price: £ 34.00 save 15%
Short-term interest rate futures (STIR futures) are one of the largest and most liquid financial markets in the world. The two main exchange-traded contracts, the Eurodollar and Euribor, regularly trade in excess of one trillion notional dollars and euros of US and European interest rates each day.

STIR futures have some very unique characteristics, not found in most other financial products. Their structure makes them very suitable for spread and strategy trading and relative value trading against other instruments such as bonds and swaps.

STIR Futures is a handbook for the STIR futures market. It clearly explains what they are, how they can be traded, and where the profit opportunities are. The book has been written for both aspiring and experienced traders looking for a trading niche in a computerised marketplace, where all participants trade on equal terms and prices.

This fully revised and updated second edition now includes:

- Details on the effects of the financial crisis on STIR futures pricing and trading.
- An in-depth analysis of valuation issues, especially the effects of term and currency basis when relatively traded to other financial products.
- A new section on using STIR futures to hedge borrowing liabilities.
- An in-depth analysis of relative value trades against bond and swap derivatives.
- Trading synthetic FX swaps using STIR futures.

Plus updated case studies and examples throughout and an even better explanation of the basics.

This book offers a unique look at a significant but often overlooked financial instrument. By focusing exclusively on this market, the author provides a comprehensive guide to trading STIR futures. He covers key points such as how STIR futures are priced, the need to understand what is driving the markets and causing the price action, and provides in-depth detail and trading examples of the intra-contract spread and strategy markets and cross-market relative value trading opportunities.

An essential read for anyone involved in this market.

“You Say Tomayto...” Contrarian Investing in Bitesize Pieces

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 16.99
Although many people consider bloody-mindedness and stubbornness as being perfect qualifications for a contrarian investor, the approach is in fact a little different than that. Yes, it requires one to act against the crowd. However, it is futile to do so without good reason. A naïve contrarian investor pops into a pub looking for a fight and is delighted if his first opponent is Lennox Lewis. A more seasoned contrarian looks to fight only little old ladies. But looking for the right opponent in a local pub is far from straightforward - little old ladies can sometimes be veteran jujitsu champions - and detecting the easier battles in the stock market is similarly challenging. At first blush, many stocks are attractive and other appealing stocks may initially look like dogs.

There is no trustworthy shortcut to separate the dogs from the delightful. The long cut is the implementation of much hard work. Hard work as in understanding a company's business model, why other investors hate it, what positive factors they might have missed, how its balance sheet and cash flow interact, and whether its valuation is sufficiently attractive. None of that is rocket science perhaps, but that does not make it easy. The bull arguments are often well hidden and can only be discovered through meticulous work, a sceptical mindset, and deep thought.

In this collection of his writings, top fund manager Alastair Mundy takes a contrarian look at a host of topics and issues, providing a range of ideas and approaches and encouraging investors to think hard about their approach to investment. This book should be essential reading for any investor - contrarian or otherwise.

Optimising Distressed Loan Books Practical solutions for dealing with non-performing loans

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 29.99
Dealing with distressed loans is different to other banking activities. Normal bank processes, decision-making structures, management techniques and investment philosophies are geared to making money in buoyant markets. However, these same characteristics mean that in a downturn banks are poorly equipped to deal with working-out distressed loan portfolios. This is problematic and costly for banks, as there are billions of dollars to be made from the resolution of defaulted loan books, if only they can harness the skills for doing this effectively.

In this unique new book, John Michael Sheehan explains why financial institutions have failed to resolve distressed loan books profitably in the past and describes the solutions they can put in place to improve this in the future. Sheehan builds on 20 years' experience of hands-on asset monetisation, loan portfolio servicing and debt work-out to describe how banks can learn to convert the dredges of loan defaults into profits. Written in a clear and approachable style, illustrated throughout and punctuated with insightful real-life case studies, Sheehan provides a highly accessible guide to this technical area.

The book is divided into three parts. The first section analyses how and why banks fail to maximise distressed recoveries. The second section is a practical, basic training manual of techniques, systems and processes that will explain to investors or lenders how to go about earning back their losses and, in many cases, clearing amounts greater than par. The final section analyses lessons from previous crises and proposes how in the future financial institutions can improve their distressed loan resolution practices.

Bank executives and officers, their advisors, loan servicers, investors, and government-sponsored entities will be able to use this book as a working tool to assist them in working-out loans and retaining the rewards from this process. Accountants, administrators and ratings agencies should find this book to be an extremely useful source of reference, whilst regulators, academics and students will also find it will improve their understanding of the secretive distressed debt industry and therefore the financial system.

Simple But Not Easy An autobiographical and biased book about investing

Purchase Price

RRP: £ 10.00 Our price: £ 8.50 save 15%
Described by the author as "a slightly autobiographical and heavily biased book about investing", Simple But Not Easy has plenty of interest to the experienced professional, and is aimed also at the interested amateur investor.

The theme of the book is that investment is simpler than non-professionals think it is in that the rudiments can be expressed in ordinary English, and picked up by anybody. It is not a science. But investment is also difficult. People on the outside tend to think that anyone on the inside should be able to do better than the market indices. This is not so. Picking the managers who are likely to do better is a challenge.

Richard Oldfield begins with a candid confession of some of his worst mistakes and what they have taught him. He discusses the different types of investment, why fees matter, and the importance of measuring performance properly. He also outlines what to look for, and what not to look for in an investment manager, when to fire a manager, and how to be a successful client.

In recent years, a new spectacular group of entrepreneurs in China called Chinese Returnee Entrepreneurs (CREs) has emerged. Not only have they contributed enormously to the rapid growth of the Chinese economy, but they also have connected China to the outside world in today's globalized economy. This book examines the literature on the returnee phenomena and assesses the impact and influence of Chinese Returnee Entrepreneurs.

The findings of this study suggest that CREs have become a driving force in Chinese globalization, dominating the internet, IT and media industries. They have become leading players in the Chinese hi-tech industries, as well as the best team players and social capital users of international guanxi. The study reveals that CREs' competitive advantages lie in their strategies utilizing technology, team work, market approach, social connections, professional qualifications, and international working experience.

Purchase Price

A high-growth success story

Martyn Dawes set out to build a high-growth business with a simple idea and the will to do whatever was required to make it a success. Twelve years later he sold this business - Coffee Nation - for £23m.

Along the way, among many highs and lows, there was the thrill of seeing an idea come to life, costly failed trials and false starts, countless business plans, learning how and when to raise funding, the personal journey of surviving when success seemed so distant and securing contracts with some of the biggest retailers in the world. This is the story of how a great British business was built - from a blank sheet of paper - and how it came to be one of the nation's favourite consumer brands. It's also a guide to help any aspiring entrepreneur put their business on the path to high growth.

Through the course of an exciting narrative, Martyn shares his experiences of growing a business and his knowledge of what you should and shouldn't do. Mistakes to avoid are revealed just as honestly as the good decisions, making this is an unusually frank and valuable account for anyone looking to build their own business.

All areas from start-up to exit are covered, including:

- How to come up with an idea and know if it's any good
- Researching and testing your business model
- When you should not write a business plan and why not
- The process of pitching to investors and raising funding
- Negotiating contracts and controlling your finances
- A special final chapter on how to set up a business for high-growth from the outset

Coffee Nation was based on the reliable principles of a simple idea, a compelling vision, a high-quality product and relentless enterprise. If you have the desire and vision to build your own high-growth business - or you want to read a fascinating story of how it has been done - look no further. It's time to wake up and sell the coffee.

It took the world's greatest investor, Warren Buffett, nearly four decades to make his first $100m. The Deals of Warren Buffett - Volume 1 charts the series of investments that made up that journey.

In revealing detail, and with a lucid descriptive style, experienced author and investor Glen Arnold explains Buffett's thinking behind these investment deals and shows how his cumulative returns compounded his wealth over time.

In this formative period, from 1941-78, Buffett developed and honed the investment philosophy that would lead him to become so successful as his career progressed. But it was not all plain sailing - Buffett made mistakes along the way - and Arnold shows how Buffett learned through success and failure how to select companies worth backing. Arnold also includes insightful 'learning points' at the end of each chapter, which reveal how investors can learn from the craft of Warren Buffett to improve their own investing.

Investments featured in this first volume include: GEICO, American Express, Disney, Berkshire Hathaway, See's Candies, and The Washington Post.

The War Against Cash The plot to empty your wallet and own your financial future – and why you MUST fight it

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 6.00
We are constantly being told that we are on the cusp of a cashless society. The financial services industry would certainly like to see it that way. We are being enticed with contactless cards, mobile phone payment apps, and methods of bank transfer: all, apparently, for our convenience.

But as Ross Clark argues in this compelling new book, it is not in our interests to surrender the right to use cash. Commercial interests want us to pay electronically in order to collect valuable data on our spending habits, while governments would love us to move to cashless payments in order to control the economy in ways which suit them, not us.

If we choose to pay electronically, that is one thing, but we will regret it if we do not defend the right to pay with cash.

Refreshingly simple finance for small business A straight-talking guide to finance and accounting

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 2.00
**Updated for 2013**

Is fear of the money side of running a business holding you back? Would you love to turn your passion into a small business, but are frightened of getting on the wrong side of the taxman? Do you run a small business and find it's a desperate struggle to keep all your paperwork in the right place, never mind work out how much tax you should pay each year?

In this friendly, informative book, bilingual qualified accountant Emily Coltman guides you through what you need to know on the finance and accounting side when you're setting up and running a small business.

Emily speaks plain English as well as accountants jargon! She has many years experience of helping small business owners with their finance and accounting, and this book is written for anyone running a small business for whom double entry might as well be double Dutch!

This book explains the different ways a business can be set up and structured legally and what the advantages and disadvantages of each kind of structure are, including the different taxes that each has to pay, and when those taxes have to be paid.

It looks at where you might find the money to start or grow your business, and why you might choose the different sources.

There are suggestions for how to organise your paperwork and advice on what records you need to keep and for how long.

You'll hear how to keep on the right side of the taxman, what expenses you can and can't claim tax relief on, and how to claim tax relief when you buy equipment for your business - and what 'tax relief' actually is!

This easy-to-read bitesize guide answers all the tax and accounting questions you have - and those you haven't thought of yet.

Foreign Exchange The Complete Deal: A comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of the Forex market

Purchase Price

RRP: £ 15.00 Our price: £ 9.00 save 40%
The foreign exchange market is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world. In recent years its volatility has been especially pronounced, which has posed problems for investors, companies and governments attempting to manage their economies. The management of exchange rates has become integral to economic performance and to the political landscape.

'Foreign Exchange, The Complete Deal', part of Harriman House's Applied Essentials series, is a comprehensive guide to this broad and exciting market, and how it is traded. James Sharpe, a foreign exchange practitioner with more than 30 years' experience, unravels the important features of the Forex market to give a clear understanding of the issues and processes involved in foreign exchange transactions.

This book begins with an exploration of the historical and theoretical background to the markets as they exist today. The transition from a fixed exchange rate system to a floating system is examined and insight is given on the processes that determine exchange rates and how the system employed impacts government policy. There is also a detailed section about the influence interventions by central banks have on the market.

The focus then moves to foreign exchange in practice, the core of the book. Topics covered include:

- The range of foreign exchange transactions available - including spot, forward, broken date, non-deliverable forwards (NDFs), swaps and options - and how they can be used, with clear worked examples
- How foreign exchange prices are quoted; bid-offer spreads; pips
- How foreign exposures are hedged
- How banks and dealers cover their exposure in the market and make profits
- A discussion of tools that are used to analyse the market, including technical analysis
- Factors that influence foreign exchange prices on a daily basis including a detailed look at liquidity
- How professional traders analyse markets and provide a blueprint for professional trading
- How best to choose and manage the relationship with foreign exchange providers

This is an indispensable guide for those who need to understand more about the commercial realities of currency trading and hedging, providing a clear and thorough explanation of the complete world of foreign exchange.

The Life and Death of Rochester Sneath The outrageously funny real-life pranks that fooled the public schools of England

Purchase Price

Our price: £ 3.60
H. Rochester Sneath no longer exists. And if you wished to put your son's name on the waiting list for Selhurst School, near Petworth, Sussex, you might have a little difficulty. It doesn't exist either. But, as this collection of Sneath's letters, and the replies, proves, you can fool most of the people most of the time. Particularly, it seems, if the people happen to be the head masters of those most English private institutions - public schools.

In early 1948 Sneath began his brief and glorious career. Letters, like canes, mortarboards and jaundiced rugger balls, began to appear in headmasters' offices, whose occupants, with two notable exceptions, appeared to find nothing strange in Sneath's requests or his exhortations. Pompous, indignant, eccentric, pushing, toadying, or just plain dotty, the letters were answered with a seriousness which is barely credible. For he wrote of:

- infestations of rats
- the possibility of 'engineering' Royal visits
- how to hire a private detective
- junior masters with club feet and warty noses
- ghosts, cricket, statues, new buildings, 'monster' reunions

George Bernard Shaw was puzzled, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott was booked up, as was Sir Adrian Boult. Sir William Reid Dick was eager. After four or five letters the Master of Marlborough became exasperated, while the head master of St Benedict's was livid. A certain master displayed a cupidity not normally associated with men of the cloth; the new Master of Rugby was grateful for some wise advice; the head master of Stowe could not have been more helpful about sex. There was talk of Sneath succeeding the headmaster of Eton. One head master was so drawn to Sneath that he recommended Selhurst to a prospective parent, who promptly applied for a place on behalf of her son. His name was placed on 'the waiting list for the Waiting List'.

Sneath's letters comprise a gentle and unmalicious, but devastatingly accurate parody of the public school system - a collection so intelligently absurd that it defies adequate description.

Traders have a tendency to over-complicate. Many search for the latest new indicator that will give them an edge, or a new trading strategy to deliver bigger wins. The message of The Trading Playbook is to forget all of this and concentrate on three solid foundations to improve your trading performance:

Simplicity - focus on price action alone.
Probabilities - take trades where the odds are in your favour.
Hard work and screen time - put in the effort to build up your trading experience.

Hard work and screen time is down to you, but The Trading Playbook will guide you towards simplifying your trading and thinking in terms of probabilities.

Michael Gouvalaris describes two straightforward trading plans that eschew complicated indicators and focus on probable outcomes. The first of these two plans - the day trading playbook - is based around ten different daily situations that can occur in the futures market. Between these ten daily setups, every single scenario is accounted for. You are shown how to determine what day type is in progress by studying that day's open and gap, and then high probability and low probability price action for each day type are given. Alongside the ten day types, the simple technical analysis tools of support and resistance and measuring market volatility are employed.

The second trading plan - the swing trading playbook - describes effective ways to identify the trend, how to find ideal spots to enter trades in the direction of the trend, and also how to identify signals that warn of potential trend failure or reversals. You will learn simple and highly effective tools for spotting high probability entries and exits for trades. Again, basic technical analysis tools are employed, including measured moves, box theory and A-B-C waves.

The key benefits of both playbooks are that they give you a well-defined plan to follow. This alleviates many of the big mistakes traders make, such as over-trading and cutting winners too early, or sitting in losing trades too long. If you are on the lookout for some trading ideas to simplify your analysis and refine your approach, The Playbook is for you.

Take a bite out of the markets with the Naked Trader!

This book is for anyone who really wants to consistently make money trading shares.

Trading and investing can be tough – most fail. The human mind is to blame. It’s prone to emotion, cluttered with distractions like Twitter and social media, easily trapped by scams. But it’s possible to make money in the markets – and to do so reliably.

Robbie Burns, aka The Naked Trader, has been trading successfully from his home for 15 years – making over £2m tax-free (while eating a lot of toast and watching Game of Thrones). He’s also met and helped thousands of fellow traders at his seminars, seen every possible trading meltdown, and knows exactly what can go wrong – but also how to put it right.

In Trade Like a Shark, Robbie uses his unique firsthand experience and the real-life stories traders have shared with him to expose exactly how the human mind can play havoc with your trading. At the same time he reveals his tried-and-tested methods for overcoming it, showing how to be a shark, gobbling up money from the 'fish' who are full of fear, greed and other emotions. (And also why modelling yourself on Mr Spock can work wonders.)

If you’ve run into problems trading in the stock market – or just want to reinforce good habits – there is no better or wittier guide to the pitfalls that are out there, and some surprisingly effective ways to overcome them. It's a must-read book on trading psychology – without the jargon. Read it and take your trading to the next level now!

Are you happy with the way you work? Are you engaged, energised in the office? Or do you sometimes feel that your days are dominated by process and technology?

Reimagining business is about waking up to a new environment, based on collaborative and flexible working, on technology that, used correctly, liberates rather than constrains. The future of work must be based on being open, on focusing on results, not process and on empowerment, not hierarchy.

Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer at Microsoft UK, has been immersed in the technologies that are making waves in the workplace. This is his call to reimagine business.
