Learn where the markets are headed--and how to ride them to success.

Global changes point toward a dramatically different next decade in the realm of finance. As the bull markets of the last twenty years fade away, new investment tools and strategies are necessary. In this book, William Gross, one of today's most respected money managers who has built his fame on tracking economic trends, prepares readers for a completely new approach to investing. He emphasizes bonds, the right kinds of stocks, and a globalized investment portfolio for this new era in investment. In an accessible style, Gross intermingles discussions of investment with humor, wit, and personal anecdotes.

William H. Gross (Laguna Beach, California) is the founder, managing director, and CEO of Pacific Investment Management Company, which manages over $90 billion in assets for both institutional investors and individuals.
