Publisher's Summary

Evidence is the key to investment success.
Odds On: The Making of an Evidence-Based Investor isn't just another investment advice book. It's a memoir, a manifesto, and a guide to the way investing should be. Odds On describes author Matt Hall's role in an ongoing revolution in the investment world: the shift from a traditional sales-driven, active-management model to a model that draws on academic evidence to better serve the real interests of investors.
Matt's story begins with his first exposure to Wall Street, where he becomes disillusioned with the traditional investing model due to its inability to truly help clients. He stumbles into the emerging evidence-based investing world, and learns how to help investors reach their goals through methods that reflect the limits of our abilities to predict which investments will deliver the highest returns. Matt's unique approach to investing is built on a dual foundation of knowledge and purpose: knowledge gained through evidence-based strategies involving research, data, and logic, and purpose gained by personal reflection on what money and success truly mean. In Odds On, Matt's storytelling makes financial topics truly relevant and easy to understand, while his investment philosophy offers listeners a chance to move beyond decisions based on anxiety and confusion, and manage wealth in ways that lead to greater success and a richer life.

A personal memoir melted into a sales pitch

If you’re looking for investment advise you won’t find any here. This is a pitch for an investment advisory firm cleverly sown together with a personal memoir. To sum it up, Warren Buffett is lucky, the market is unpredictable, and you can only make money if you become a client.

An investment paradigm shift

Matt has a very smooth and reassuring way of explaining that, for most of us, what we’ve learned and been told about investing is fundamentally flawed.

An amazing book that will especially benefit those who are new to investing.
