5+ years in the writing, this book changes the world of investing at a fundamental level. It transforms the way we invest from today's "static", buy-and-hold approach to a far more profitable and less risky "dynamic", buy-and-sell approach.
In this book you will learn how a new investment approach, called Dynamic Investment Theory (DIT), and a revolutionary investment type that DIT creates, called Dynamic Investments (DIs), usher in a new era of simpler, more profitable and less risky investing.
Who MUST Read this Book?
Individual investors who study the material in this book will finally be empowered to invest with confidence and without fear of major losses. And they can reasonably expect to earn returns that are significantly higher than the static, asset-allocation portfolios they hold today.
Financial professionals and organizations who embrace this new investing approach will be able to immediately and substantially improve their investing products / services in a manner that opens significant new revenue streams and gives them a massive competitive advantage in the crowded field of financial services.
Table of Contents
This is the ONE book that defines how we will invest for decades to come. To get an overview of how it does so, take a look at the book's Table of Contents presented just below.
The Problem Solved by this Book
The seeds for this book were planted in 2008 when author, Leland Hevner, was teaching a college-level class in personal investing. He was showing students how to create portfolios using asset-allocation methods to match their risk profile as dictated by Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) - the "settled science" approach to portfolio design in universal use today. Yet, as the stock market crashed in that year he watched in dismay as these portfolios crashed right along with it.
At that point Hevner had to realize that MPT, a portfolio design approach introduced in the 1950's, no longer worked in today's markets (see the nearby chart). As a result he cancelled all further education classes and refocused NAOI resources on finding a better fundamental approach to investing; one that could empower investors to thrive in 21st century markets. Following a multi-year research, development and testing effort, Hevner and the NAOI met this goal in the form of Dynamic Investment Theory. This book documents Hevner's scientifically-based research process and introduces to the world a new, dynamic approach to investing that is at the very least a viable alternative to the 65+ year old approach, and a most a complete replacement!
Dynamic Investment Theory:
A Simple, High Performance, Low Risk Investing Approach
The new approach to investing described in the book is called Dynamic Investment Theory (DIT). It creates a next-generation investment type called Dynamic Investments (DIs). DIs are the market's first and only market-sensitive investment. They automatically change the Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) they hold based on a periodic sampling of market trends. By purchasing only ETFs that are trending up in price while selling, or avoiding, those that are trending down, DIs produce significantly higher returns than virtually any MPT-based portfolio in existence today with lower risk and no active management required.
For example, you will learn in the book how the simplest possible Dynamic Investment, one that automatically rotates its holding only between a Total Stock Market ETF and a Total Bond Market ETF earned the returns shown in the top data row of the table below for the 10 year period from the start of 2008 to the end of 2017. These returns are compared to those produced by a traditional MPT portfolio, shown in the bottom data row, with 50% allocation to each of the same ETFs. Note the astounding Average Annual Rate of the DI for the period displayed in the second to last column. The Sharpe Ratio, shown in the last column is a measure of how much return was achieved for each unit of risk taken - the higher the better. This example shows that the DI's higher returns DID NOT require exposure to higher risk. MPT says that this is impossible. DIT shows differently.
We call the DI used in this example the NAOI Core DI. You will be able to implement it and other NAOI designed DIs, immediately upon completion of the book! And you can do so on your own, using an online broker if you wish. The book provides step-by-step instructions for doing so!
Not Just Another "Investing Book"
The Amazing Future of Investing is not just another "how-to" investing book that you can find by the dozens on Amazon for $19.95. A major problem with virtually all of these books is that they take for granted that the underlying investing approach used will be Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) which, as discussed above, is based on 1950's era markets and decades old thinking. Then authors simply layer on top of this obsolete model various techniques that they claim will make a major difference in your investing success. They are simply putting lipstick on the MPT "pig". Most such books will end up on your bookshelf collecting dust.
The Amazing Future of Investing book is different. We started with a "blank slate", as if MPT didn't exist. Unconstrained by MPT "chains" we developed a new theory of investing called Dynamic Investment Theory (DIT) designed to work in 21st Century markets. The book walks you through the steps we took to do so. Then we show how this new theory creates dynamic, intelligent investments that are sensitive to market movements and capable of changing their holdings automatically based on current market trends. By doing so, extensive testing showed us that these new Dynamic Investments are capable of consistently producing higher returns with less risk than any static, buy-and-hold MPT portfolio in existence. Creating this simpler, more profitable and less risky investing environment was possible ONLY because we broke the constraints of MPT and used logic and scientific methods to develop a totally unqiue approach to portfolio design and to investing in general.
No, this is NOT just another investing book. It is in a class by itself.
What About the Price?
Granted, this book is priced above other books that claim to show you how to "invest with success". But as discussed just above, this is not simply a book on how to invest. This is a book that first shows why current methods of investing don't work in today's markets and then replaces them with improved methods that do. With the constraints of MPT broken, we then show readers how to achieve investing returns that today's "experts" will say are impossible - a 20% average annual returns is not out of reach. The book's price is dwarfed by the additional investing returns that can be achieved, over an investing career, by those who learn the information presented in the book and act on it.
Financial organizations regularly pay tens of thousands of dollars for consulting contracts and studies that provide far less valuable and actionable information than is found in this book. Organizations that embrace the DIT approach will be empowered to create and offer superior investing products/services that will enable them to capture new market share, open massive new revenue streams and gain a significant competitive advantage in a crowded market. The ROI of purchasing this book will be through the roof!
For financial professionals and organizations the NAOI also offers consulting services as discussed here that will show them how to integrate Dynamic Investments into their offerings easily, efficiently and cost effectively without disrupting current operations!
Organizations that prepare NOW to offer DIs as a part of their product offerings will thrive in the future of investing. Those that don't, will miss a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to rise above their competition and dominate the future of investing.
