In order to be a successful investor, it is not enough to be able to pick winners.
You must be able to protect and enhance your investments and their performance
over the long haul. This book will show the investor how to derive vastly improved
results and benefits from whatever investment strategy they are following.
This is possible by combining such investment strategies with the same equity
derivative strategies that professional fund managers use. Armed with this book,
a private investor will be able to invest like a professional. The knowledge
of equity derivatives and the techniques explained allows any investor the full
advantage of knowing how best to protect the value of an existing investment
The reader will also learn how to let an investment portfolio track an equity
index, how to diversify stock and bond holdings, and how to "lock in" buying
or selling prices as well as unrealized profits. This book will be a valuable
addition to an investor's arsenal of knowledge on investment. It won't just
present a substitute or alternative avenue for investment. If you're investing
in stocks and bonds, do it like a pro.
