A timeless investment guide that reveals how to consistently earn market-beating returns while reducing risk. What every investor needs is a battle-tested strategy that embraces the uncertainty of financial markets-and life in general. One that will yield market-beating portfolio returns in both good times and bad. The Gone Fishin' Portfolio shows you what that strategy is, how it works, and why you should begin using it immediately. The innovative approach outlined throughout these pages will help investors enjoy a notably high probability of success by using an investment strategy based on the notion that nobody knows what the market is likely to do next, which, in effect, allows investors to capitalize on uncertainty. This Second Edition has been updated and revised for 2021. While the strategy remains essentially the same, this new edition reflects the latest rules, regulations, and changes, and explains how portfolios modeled in this manner survived the crash of 2008.

 Notable Updates:

  • One fund in this ten-fund asset allocation strategy - Vanguard Gold & Precious Metals - shut down in 2018. Author Alexander Green will reveal the replacement in this Second Edition.
  • Changes in the ETF industry allow successful asset allocation maintanence while improving investor performance with better constructed, lower-cost ETFs.
