Hoboken, NJ (July 9, 2018)Taylor Larimore is a bona fide expert when it comes to “the Boglehead way,” a low-cost, buy-and-hold investment philosophy, from iconic investor and founder of The Vanguard Group, Jack Bogle.

Crowned the “King of the Bogleheads” by Bogle himself, Larimore has substantially grown his own portfolio based on Bogle’s philosophy and has contributed to over 50,000 posts on the official Boglehead Forums, answering questions and helping investors achieve their financial goals. In his new book, The Bogleheads’ Guide to the Three-Fund Portfolio, Larimore shares his personal approach to index investing and this straightforward system that walks readers through determining the proper allocation of assets, choosing smart investments, and managing portfolios over time. Meant for anyone interested in a brighter financial future, the book takes a step-by-step approach to show readers how to ensure financial security by investing in three market index funds – U.S. stocks, non-U.S. stocks, and U.S. bonds.

Whether you’re just entering the workforce, closing in on retirement, or looking for more financial security, this book enables you to:

  • Eliminate a large handful of risks associated with other investing methods, including manager choice, individual stock and sector vulnerabilities, tracking error, and more.
  • Avoid the most common ways investors lose money trying to make it, including stock picking, market timing, useless newsletters, and expensive advisors.
  • Prepare yourself to invest real money by hearing from a diverse collection of everyday investors successfully using the approach, including model allocation strategies and tips.

The Bogleheads’ Guide to the Three-Fund Portfolio takes a stress-free approach to help readers follow a simple path to financial security and reach their financial goals by determining the proper allocation of assets, choosing smart investments and managing portfolios over time.
