Value Averaging: The Safe and Easy Strategy for Higher Investment Returns
BY Michael E. Edleson, William J. Bernstein (Foreword by)
Michael Edleson first introduced his concept of value averaging to the world in an article written in 1988. He then wrote a book entitled Value Averaging in 1993, which has been nearly impossible to find¡ªuntil now. With the reintroduction of Value Averaging, you now have access to a strategy that can help you accumulate wealth, increase your investment returns, and achieve your financial goals.
Michael E. Edleson is a Managing Director of Morgan Stanley and oversees the firm's equity risk globally. Prior to that, he was Chief Economist of NASDAQ and a finance professor at Harvard Business School. Edleson earned his PhD at MIT.
