It’s an authoritative, insightful, and accessible resource from a team of distinguished finance experts and includes a foreword by Nobel Prize winner Harry Markowitz.</p>
<p><b>Praise for <i>Asset Allocation</i></b></p><p>“In <i>Asset Allocation: From Theory to Practice and Beyond</i>, Kinlaw, Kritzman, and Turkington have taken their absolutely superb 2017 treatise on asset allocation and investment and managed to make it even better. They identify comprehensively the important and up-to-date questions surrounding asset allocation, many of which are subtle and rather technical. It is remarkable how they manage to explain and address such a wide array in plainly written language, accessible to the least-technical practitioner, while offering rigorous theoretical analysis and empirical findings to satisfy the most-demanding quant. All of this within a compact casing of 200+ pages. Like reducing transactions costs and taxes, avoiding paths of error is among the robust means for improving investment performance. I am thus delighted to see the Fallacies of Asset Allocation section expanded and enhanced. Whether novice student or seasoned professional, the reader is in for a treat: <i>Bon Appetit! </i>”<BR><b>—Robert C. Merton</b>, School of Management Distinguished Professor of Finance, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; John and Natty McArthur University Professor Emeritus, Harvard University; recipient of the 1997 Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences</p>
