Why alternative and non-traditional investments are no longer just for the wealthy

There was a time when asset allocation was simply about diversification. Today, asset allocation is about both preserving wealth and growing returns regardless of market conditions. They're also a must-have for investors large and small. ANTS: Using Alternative and Non-Traditional Investments to Allocate Your Assets in an Uncertain World shows the average investor how to incorporate ANTs into their portfolio in a substantive way.

  • Details how the explosion of Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) has made it easier than ever for individual investors to incorporate alternative and non-traditional investments into their portfolios
  • Includes invaluable advice and insights from Dr. Bob, a frequent guest and investor favorite on CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg TV, and Reuters TV
  • Other titles by Dr. Bob: Investment MegaTrends and Where the Money Is, both by Wiley

With the economic crisis and the ever-increasing volatility in the world's financial markets, views on asset allocation have changed. ANTs describes why to incorporate alternative and non-traditional investments into portfolios and details how to easily do it.
