“…the book’s main benefit was to show me that the mysteries of investment…lie within my grasp.” (Financial World, March 2008)

Jim Mellon and Al Chalabi demystify the process of investment and let you in on a few of their BigIdeas - whilst you work out a few of your own:

Real Estate – can the hot housing markets really continue to generate 20% annual increases?

Stocks & Mutual Funds – the hardest of all investment classes to operate in, so where are the opportunities?

Bonds & Cash – not as boring as you may think, and with the capacity to make you a lot of money!

The ‘BRIC’ Economies – how do the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China stack up against the four key determinates of growth?

Commodities & Collectables – learn the five reasons why commodities are an investment vehicle set to grow and grow.

‘Green’ Investments – how can we turn the challenges of green and eco-needs into monetary returns on investment?

Given a bit of strategic thinking and proper planning these BigIdeas can turn into MoneyFountains, meaning your financial worries for the future are over before they’ve begun.
