PREMISE
. . .
Last month, we looked at 'Keeping it Simple'.

This month, we will learn about important research that

threatens simplicity but may yield insights into the risk/reward paradox.


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here are some problems with investing that may lead to answers.


How does one measure the risk of a legitimate investment?

Or an entire portfolio?

What exactly is a 'Risk-Adjusted Return'?



THIS MONTH we explore these and other apt questions:


  • What makes Modern Portfolio Theory so persuasive?

    What is the Efficient Frontier?


    plus...

    Open discussion—any topic!
