The Discerning Investor
Personal Portfolio Management in Retirement for Lawyers
(and Their Clients)
The Discerning Investor is a book for investors
who happen to be lawyers . . .
written by a lawyer
who happens to be "investment counsel."
“Jason’s presentation is intellectually rigorous—instead of self-help-style nostrums, she furnishes concrete, actionable advice substantiated with empirical data. Moreover, despite necessary excursions into technicality, this is a thoroughly readable book that will be entirely accessible to those with a limited understanding of investment strategy.
“Another of its virtues is that it never dispenses hyperbolic promises and unflinchingly confronts the reality of risk: ‘In my experience, the most satisfied investors are those who embrace the investor’s dilemma, understanding that risk (uncertainty) and reward (high returns) are forever and always intertwined.’
“Overall, this is an impressively informative book that attests to the author’s 30-plus years of experience in the financial industry.”
