This Type Of Nepotism Is Inexcusable

The author is a favorite uncle of mine, so I would very much like you to buy mountains of these books: The Affluent Investor: Financial Advice to Grow and Protect Your Wealth

In addition to being a big fan and relative of the author, I just finished the book. I enjoyed it and learned a lot. You will too. He is a funny, great writer, so this education is a joy.

Publisher's Description: Newcomers to financial investment can find dozens of advice books written especially for them, but this brand-new title is a book with a difference. It speaks directly to you--if you're an investor with a portfolio worth $100,000 or more. The well-known investment advisor and bestselling author Phil DeMuth addresses the bread-and-butter issues facing that underserved segment of the equities investment community. He will tell you--

  • How to custom tailor your asset allocation to your personal circumstances
  • How to capture the recognized outperforming market anomalies in your portfolio
  • How to keep what you've got and avoid Wall street's wealth extraction machine

Author DeMuth also passes along some invaluable retirement investing advice learned from Warren Buffett, and he explains the primary asset protection and tax minimization strategies that work for those in the high-net-worth bracket. Here are investment strategies for the affluent, as well as for those who are approaching affluence and are trying to take that big step forward.
