Investment advice from David Swensen


I've written before about how you can't hope to mimic Swensen's approach. He does offer solid advice to individuals about growing their wealth. There's no secret formula. It boils down to disciplined execution of the tried and true basics: diversification, re-balancing, don't try to time the market.

Here is David Swensen's track record for Yale Endowment over the years. He never had a loss for over 20 years. I wonder what he will do this year.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
