    Do you consider yourself a long-term investor? If so, chances are you have parked your money with an advisor and pay little attention to its performance and even less to the amount of risk in your portfolio. You may be told by Wall Street to buy stocks or funds and hold them, or to create a diverse portfolio to protect yourself from risk and downturns in the market. Truth be told, new studies show this approach may not be serving the long-term investor well. In his new book, Roger Davis reveals point-blank that Wall Street’s just not that into you. Drawing on an investment career spanning more than two decades, Davis delivers a dynamic and deadly accurate analysis of Wall Street’s “one-size-fits-all” approach-and why even wealthy investors should be wary. Davis, who has two decades of experience managing funds, raises valid questions about traditional investment techniques, exposing the inherent dangers of relying on any one technique as a primary risk management tool. As a listener, you will be taught critical, innovative strategies like how to stress test your portfolio and “lose your losers.” Davis reveals that most investors are less concerned about making a sizeable return on their investments than they are about protecting their wealth; yet many investors have the same unprotected exposure to the stock market that they did in 2008. This book offers investors specific steps they can take to reduce investment risk and the right questions to ask of their current advisors to understand whether they should make a change. Refreshingly candid and highly informative, Wall Street’s Just Not That Into You offers a bold and thought-provoking alternative to the many books that offer up the same old principles of years gone by.

    How the very things we create to protect ourselves, like money market funds or anti-lock brakes, end up being the biggest threats to our safety and wellbeing. We have learned a staggering amount about human nature and disaster—yet we keep having car crashes, floods, and financial crises. Partly this is because the success we have at making life safer enables us to take bigger risks. As our cities, transport systems, and financial markets become more interconnected and complex, so does the potential for catastrophe. How do we stay safe? Should we? What if our attempts are exposing us even more to the very risks we are avoiding? Would acceptance of danger make us more secure? Is there such a thing as foolproof? In Foolproof, Greg Ip presents a macro theory of human nature and disaster that explains how we can keep ourselves safe in our increasingly dangerous world.

    One thing that will never change about the business world is the presence of risk. But risk management has changed dramatically since the 2008 financial crisis, and new developments in technology and communications demand up-to-the-minute approaches for defending against threats—and seizing opportunities. Extensively updated, the second edition of Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management examines the latest technologies, such as Riskonnect and High Tech Electronic Platform (HTEP), and helps listeners recognize both internal and external exposures, understand crucial concepts such as risk mapping and risk identification, and align risk opportunities with their organization’s business model. Packed with practical exercises and fresh case studies from organizations such as IBM, Microsoft, Apple, JPMorgan Chase, and Sony, as well as new material on topics like the new role of Risk Owner, cutting-edge collaboration methods, and the upside of risk, this critical guide provides listeners with the tools and information they need to keep their organizations as blissfully risk free as possible.
