Investing with Anthony Bolton by Anthony Bolton( )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who is the most successful investment manager in Britain? Arguments could rage forever, but no professional would dispute that Anthony Bolton of Fidelity is among the very best. #1,000 invested in his Special Situations fund at its launch in 1979 would today be worth more than #80,000. No other mainstream UK fund manager has put together such a consistently impressive performance over such a long period. The 80-fold increase represents an average compound growth rate of 19.9% per annum, or 6% per annum more than the FTSE All-Share Index over the same period. This track record is every bit as good as that recorded by American investment superstars such as Warren Buffett and Peter Lynch. Fidelity Special Situations fund is now the largest and most popular fund in the UK, with more than #3.6 billion of assets. What are the secrets of Bolton's success? In this important new book, published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of its launch, Jonathan Davis, investment columnist of The Independent, takes an in-depth look at the way that Bolton goes about his business and analyses in detail the performance of the fund over the past 25 years. In a separate 12,000 word section Anthony Bolton gives his own personal account of the history of the fund, explains why he believes his contrarian stockpicking methods have worked so well for so long and discloses how he handles the pressures of being the best-known fund manager in London. This book will be required reading for anyone with a personal or professional interest in investment

Professional investor rules : top investors reveal the secrets of their success by Jonathan Davis( )

12 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They are the world's best - the professional investors at the head of global investment funds and the mavericks operating from behind nothing more than a laptop and a point of view; some with millions of pounds at their disposal and the fate of companies and customers' savings hanging on their decisions, others with nothing more (or less) than their reputation and their own fortune on the line. What sets them apart from the thousands of other investors out there is their track record. The professional investors who have contributed to this book include multiple award winners, fund managers who have managed to double or triple investment returns every two years, as well as the heads and founders of firms with billions - occasionally trillions - under management and half a century of profits to which they can point. There are no better investors to learn from when making your own way in the markets, and this book is the indispensable collection of the secrets behind their success, straight from the investors themselves. Featuring the investing rules of award-winning experts in Asian, Latin American and Western markets, contrarian specialists, mutual fund managers and more, Professional Investor Rules is a compelling snapshot of some of today's best investing minds. No investor can afford to be without it

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enduring legacy of a legendary investorCalled the "greatest stock picker of the century" by Money magazine, legendary fund manager Sir John Templeton is remembered as one of the world's foremost investors, known for his pioneering insights and phenomenal investment performance over a professional career which spanned more than half a century. Templeton's Way with Money provides a unique, professional 21st century appraisal of what made this formidable investor the success he was--and why his methods remain as valid today as they were during his long and successful lifetime. Written by two investment experts, one of whom worked closely with Sir John for ten years, and drawing on previously unpublished documents, the book explains in detail how John Templeton's simple but effective investment philosophy of riding out the ups and downs of the market cycle continues to be as relevant as ever for professional and private investors alike. Key features include: A fresh and detailed reappraisal, drawing on a number of previously unpublished documents, of the philosophy which Templeton applied to the two phase of his investment career--first as an investment counsel, and latterly as the most successful global fund manager of his generation A detailed and original study of the performance of the Templeton Growth Fund, demonstrating in detail how Templeton achieved the Holy Grail of investment--above average returns with below average risk First hand accounts from former colleagues of their experience in working with Templeton--including those of author Alasdair Nairn's ten-year career working with and for the investment management organization that was Templeton's life work Proprietary and original research which explains why Templeton's seemingly simple investment philosophy is sure to produce exceptional returns if implemented effectively Current market conditions make Templeton's contrarian investment method of profiting from pessimism particularly relevant today, and this book a must-read for anyone working with investments"--
