Shyam Bahadur, Ph.D., wanted to introduce different kinds of investments suitable for people with different means and needs at different stages of life while being able to participate in investing as early as possible. The idea here is to keep the reader engaged while progressing to learn more and more. These objectives prompted Bahadur to write “Guide to Investing in Stocks, Bonds, ETFs and Mutual Funds: An Investor’s Guide to Building Wealth” (published by LifeRich Publishing).

The book covers all kinds of investments: treasury securities, bonds issued by federal government and government agencies, public entities and corporations, stocks, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds. This includes also the discussion of asset allocation, diversification and rebalancing so as to enable the reader to develop an efficient diversified portfolio.

“Investor needs to understand that, when it comes to investing, there are no guarantees of profit,” Bahadur says. “You may be an astute investor but have no control on the profits and losses of the businesses that you selected for investment. Often, the outcome of investing is that you end up with profits in some and losses in others. The aim of this book is to have more profits than losses and so the result is net profit. That is why diversification is considered necessary in investing.”

Through the publication of “Guide to Investing in Stocks, Bonds, ETFs and Mutual Funds: An Investor’s Guide to Building Wealth” Bahadur hopes readers will learn the principles of investing and be able to analyze them, know the resources for the selection of investments and become astute investors.
