"The most useful recent book could be The Ivy Portfolio: How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets, by money managers Mebane Faber and Eric Richardson, who work at Cambria Investment Management. They analyze how the endowments of Harvard and Yale posted such world-beating performance. Then they offer a simplified model that regular people can adopt." (BusinessWeek, April 9, 2009)
"Markets left investors almost no place to hide last year, with nearly every asset class heading south. Money manager Mebane Faber of Cambria Investment Management outperformed by a mile, however.... Faber is co-author of the The Ivy Portfolio, which details his approach. Following the investment tenets of the Harvard and Yale endowments (which until last year both had sterling performance) but without using their riskier alternative assets, he demonstrates how to outperform with lower volatility." (Barron's, April 27, 2009)
"Does The Ivy Portfolio deserve a spot on Dad's bookshelf? With its graphics, tables and step-by-step guidance, the book is often more straightforward than a college financial aid form." (Wall Street Journal, June 16, 2009)
"We all know that the most impressive investment returns are from endowment funds and in particular, Yale and Harvard. Faber and Richardson take us inside these two funds and show us how to replicate that model for our portfolios. The Ivy Portfolio is an easy-to-read and -understand book that will make the process of asset allocation and investment easier for readers. And in light of the recent market turmoil, its lessons are even more important."
—John Mauldin, author of the bestselling Bull's Eye Investing and the weekly newsletter Thoughts from the Frontline
"Meb Faber makes a most compelling case for quantitative active asset allocation. Investors of all levels of sophistication will benefit handsomely from the insights and analyses presented in The Ivy Portfolio."
