A process–driven approach to investment management that lets you achieve the same high gains as the most successful portfolio managers, but at half the cost

What do you pay for when you hire a portfolio manager? Is it his or her unique experience and expertise, a set of specialized analytical skills possessed by only a few? The truth, according to industry insider Jacques Lussier, is that, despite their often grandiose claims, most successful investment managers, themselves, can′t properly explain their successes. In this book Lussier argues convincingly that most of the gains achieved by professional portfolio managers can be accounted for not by special knowledge or arcane analytical methodologies, but proper portfolio management processes whether they are aware of this or not. More importantly, Lussier lays out a formal process–oriented approach proven to consistently garner most of the excess gains generated by traditional analysis–intensive approaches, but at a fraction of the cost since it could be fully implemented internally.

  • Profit from more than a half–century′s theoretical and empirical literature, as well as the author′s own experiences as a top investment strategist
  • Learn an approach, combining several formal management processes, that simplifies portfolio management and makes its underlying qualities more transparent, while lowering costs significantly
  • Discover proven methods for exploiting the inefficiencies of traditional benchmarks, as well as the behavioral biases of investors and corporate management, for consistently high returns
  • Learn to use highly–efficient portfolio management and rebalancing methodologies and an approach to diversification that yields returns far greater than traditional investment programs

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Successful Investing is a Process

"Should I want advice about the construction and the dynamic management of an investment portfolio, Jacques Lussier would be my first telephone call."
NASSIM N. TALEB, essayist, risk scientist, and former derivatives trader; author of The Black Swan and Antifragile

"For the serious investor, Jacques Lussier provides a careful and clearly written analysis of what can and should be done to manage investments in a professional market where fees are large relative to value added. Successful Investing is a Process is always clear, always interesting and always educating."
Charles D. Ellis, founder of Greenwich Associates, Chair of the CFA Institute, associate editor of The Journal of Portfolio Management and Financial Analysts Journal; author of 16 books including Winning the Loser′s Game

"Successful Investing is a Process. It′s not just a book title but an often–ignored reality. Jacques Lussier has done a superb job of synthesizing many of the developments in modern finance theory and practice into a well–crafted ′owner′s manual′ for building a successful investing process. This is an important book for any investor or fiduciary who wants to weather the likely challenges that the coming years seem likely to impose on us."
Rob Arnott, founder of Research Affiliates, former chairman of First Quadrant, editor of the Financial Analysts Journal; co–author of The Fundamental Index: A Better Way to Invest

"Jacques Lussier is quite right. Investing IS a process, and not a formula. There is something for every kind of investment professional in this useful book. I rediscovered much I had learned over thirty years in this profession, but had perhaps forgotten. I appreciated, too, much that I do remember; it′s good to have it all in one place. But most of all I appreciate the large amount of material that I had missed. The scope of Jacques′ book is encyclopedic. This is one of those rare books that will command a permanent place on the limited real estate available on an investor′s trading desk."
Vinay Pande, Partner at Brevan Howard, former Chief Investment Advisor at Deutsche Bank

"Lussier offers credible new views on benchmarking and outperformance, gleaned from his own experience and his broad and critical survey of current academic and practitioner research, in particular the insight that investors should let the market underperform their investment protocols instead of attempting to beat the market at all costs. Lussier′s book is an impressive achievement written by an accomplished veteran of the asset management industry."
Yves Choueifaty, founder of TOBAM, former CEO of Credit Lyonnais Asset Management
