Pragmatic Capitalism

Practical Views on Money, Finance & Life


A lot of readers have sent me emails about risk adjusted returns. I’m glad people are interested in learning more about this because I believe it is one of the most fundamentally misunderstood parts of investing. I have attached a very basic primer and a few links.

Enjoy, read up and after a few weeks you’ll sell all of your mutual funds and ask yourself why you wasted so much money in fees. Obviously, for more advanced investors this post is a waste of your time….

The very basics here and here.
