Praise for The Ivy Portfolio
We all know that the most impressive investment returns are from endowment funds and in particular Yale and Harvard. Faber and Richardson take us inside these two funds and show us how to replicate that model for our portfolios. The Ivy Portfolio is an easy to read and understand book that will make the process of asset allocation and investment easier for their readers. And in light of the recent market turmoil, its lessons are even more important.

quantitative active asset allocation. Investors of all levels of sophistication will benefit handsomely from the insights and analyses presented in The Ivy Portfolio.

Analysis of institutional holdings (13F analysis) is one of the most useful yet underused tools in an investor's research arsenal. Along with taking readers into the arcane world of endowment investing, The Ivy Portfolio provides actionable advice on how to trade alongside the top investment professionals of our time.
