This week I asked about 25 people from my network of portfolio managers, CIOs, and independent investors for the books which have most impacted how they think about risk-taking, investing, and trading. Here’s the Investing Pro’s Library (Link).
Besides books, the web is teeming with analysis and discussion in finance. It wasn’t always this way. 20 years ago when I started at Susquehanna in the options and ETF world there the best places to learn online were not blogs. They were forums. You could come across brilliant gamblers and traders on sites like 2+2 and Wilmott. Fast forward to 2019 and you can gain a substantial education in finance if you follow the right authors. The problem is no longer discovery but curation.
Here’s my short list of who you can’t miss today:
For breaking down high finance topics:
O’Shaughnessy Asset Management
Susquehanna’s Raise Your Game
Musings on Markets by Aswath Damodaran
Of Dollars and Data
American Business History
A more extensive list of blogs to follow can be found on my site. Note that this is only a subset of all the feeds I think are worth subscribing to. If anybody is interested in that giant list, just reach out.
