When the crash of 2008 happened, most of us saw the value of our investments crash too. But while the majority of us struggled, the already affluent seemed to weather the storm just fine. How did they do it? The secret lies in two words: asset allocation. No one knows this better than David Darst, one of the world's foremost experts on what it takes to make the most of your money.

Asset allocation isn't just a smart investing strategy; it's the ultimate determinant of success in the markets and it's the proven strategy the wealthy use to survive financial chaos and profit even in down markets. In The Little Book That Still Saves Your Assets, Darst distills his immense knowledge into a gem of a guide that lets you safeguard your money the same way the rich do. Based on a lifetime of clear thinking and innovative research borne out of decades of real-world experience, this book presents the art and science of asset allocation in a crisp, down-to-earth fashion. It's like having your own money manager to guide you through tough economic times.

Darst describes the practical principles behind the process of managing your money in today's challenging investment climate and stresses the substantial investment returns that the right mix of stocks, bonds, cash, gold, real estate, commodities, and other assets can bring to your portfolio. He also explains how to adjust your asset allocation model for today's post-crash market and determine the amount of risk your portfolio can tolerate.

Positioning your portfolio for optimal long-term performance is the key to a secure future. Now, you can use the same strategies that professional wealth managers use. With The Little Book That Still Saves Your Assets as your guide, Darst puts you on a path that will help you maximize your returns and achieve your life goals. Whether you do it on your own or with the help of a trusted advisor, you need to understand the ins and outs of asset allocation, and this book will help you learn what the wealthy have long known--that 80 percent of investment returns are found to come from correct asset allocation.
