"The empowering story of Larry Hite's unlikely rise to the top of the hedge fund world-with critical insights and lessons you can take to the bank In The Rule, legendary trader and hedge fund pioneer Larry Hite recounts his working-class upbringing in Brooklyn as a dyslexic, partially blind kid who was anything but a model student-and how he went on to found and run Mint Investment Management Company, one of the most profitable and largest quantitative hedge funds in the world. Hite's wild success is based on his deep understanding that markets are flawed-just like people. Through his early-life struggles and failures, Hite came to know himself well-his fears, his frustrations, his self-doubt, and his tolerance for all of the above. This motivational book reveals that by accepting the facts of his life and of himself, he was able to accept markets as they are. And that was the key to his success. In these pages, you'll walk of the footsteps of an investing legend, who imparts smart, practical trading lessons throughout the journey. Making a successful living in trading isn't about beating the markets. It's about meeting markets where they are, embracing the fact of risk, knowing yourself, and playing it strictly by the numbers. The Rule shows that investing decisions are not only bets or gambles, but investments in time, energy, and attention. By focusing on realistic returns on your investments-versus what you expect or hope to get-you immediately improve your probability for success"-- Provided by publisher.

Homewreckers : how a gang of Wall Street kingpins, hedge fund magnates, crooked banks, and vulture capitalists suckered millions out of their homes and demolished the American dream

October 28, 2019
Glantz, Aaron, author.
New York, NY : Custom House, [2019]
xxx, 398 pages, 16 pages of unnumbered plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
The American dream -- The homewreckers cast of characters -- FINANCIAL FREEDOM: The salesman; A squandered opportunity; A run on the bank; Life on Park Avenue; The vultures circle -- FORECLOSURE KINGS: A mortgage discovered; Foreclosure machine -- THE GREATEST THING I'VE EVER DONE: ColFin AI-CA5 LLC; Polo ponies and wine; For infinity; Son of a linen store owner; Loading the boat; Life on a lease -- THE NEW REDLINING: A bungalow in Los Angeles -- THE BIG FLIP: Time to make a deal; The community fights back; The new debt bundles; Too big to fail -- ENTER THE DONALD: An early vulture; Trump University -- PRESIDENT TRUMP: Triumph of the homewreckers -- Epilogue: A path to shared prosperity.
Two years before the housing market collapsed in 2008, Donald Trump looked forward to a crash: "I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy," he said. But our future president wasn't alone. While millions of Americans suffered financial loss, tycoons pounced to heartlessly seize thousands of homes--their profiteering made even easier because, as prize-winning investigative reporter Aaron Glantz reveals in Homewreckers, they often used taxpayer money--and the Obama administration's promise to cover their losses. In Homewreckers, Glantz recounts the transformation of straightforward lending into a morass of slivered and combined mortgage "products" that could be bought and sold, accompanied by a shift in priorities and a loosening of regulations and laws that made it good business to lend money to those who wouldn't be able to repay. Among the men who laughed their way to the bank: Trump cabinet members Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross, Trump pal and confidant Tom Barrack, and billionaire Republican cash cow Steve Schwarzman. Homewreckers also brilliantly weaves together the stories of those most ravaged by the housing crisis. The result is an eye-opening expose of the greed that decimated millions and enriched a gluttonous few.

Non-consensus investing : achieving low risks and high returns

October 7, 2019
Bhansali, Rupal J., author.
New York : Columbia University Press, [2019]
ix, 268 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
"The book aims to share investment principles that have enabled the author, a successful money manager, to deliver superior risk adjusted returns throughout her 25 year career - spanning markets both bull and bear, domestic and international, developed and emerging and across market cap ranges. Active Investing has developed an inferior track record and poor reputation, not because it is not possible to beat the market but because a whole generation of investment professionals have failed to understand what it takes to succeed in the asymmetric sport of investing - where it is not enough to be correct, one also has to be non-consensus. The author calls her approach Non-Consensus Investing (NCI), distinguished from standard value investing by its emphasis on on what you get - the future risk, returns and growth of the business, rather than on what you pay. In other words, following the NCI approach, an investor is first a business analyst, second a financial analyst, and lastly a securities analyst. While traditional value investing is increasingly outsourced to computers because of its focus on strictly quantitative analysis, NCI relies on real-world heuristic frameworks. Bhansali outlines ten of the principles that she has followed throughout her successful career, one per chapter, with examples to show both the merits and pitfalls of her approach"-- Provided by publisher.
