As the director of research for The BAM Alliance, and the author and co-author of 15 investment books, I’m often asked about other books I would recommend. For serious investors who want to gain a deeper understanding of how markets work and the strategies most likely to allow them to achieve their financial goals, my short list of “must-read” books (in alphabetical order by author) has been:
- “Expected Returns” by Antti Ilmanen
- “Successful Investing Is a Process” by Jacques Lussier
- “The Success Equation” by Michael Mauboussin
- “The Physics of Wall Street” by James Weatherall
I’m now adding Lasse Pedersen’s “Efficiently Inefficient” to that group. The book clearly is written for professionals and experienced investors who have taken a serious interest in what might be called “the science of investing,” or evidenced-based investing.
