Jacket Text

The early 21st century has been a period of extreme fear and greed in the world's financial markets. Vast sums of wealth have been lost by some, but also made by others. Faith in the investment industry is now at its lowest-ever ebb, and the crisis remains far from resolution.

Fear and Greed aims to prepare investors for the financial challenges and opportunities of the next few years. Having successfully guided his firm's investors through the turmoil since 2007, leading investment manager Nicolas Sarkis draws upon the lessons of history in order to illuminate the way ahead.

In particular, Sarkis explores the plight of equities in the developed world since the millennium and considers when they might finally recover, as well as the likely effects of reducing government indebtedness upon markets. He also offers his insights into the outlook for stocks in emerging nations, for gold and for the single European currency.

In addition to the prospects for the leading asset classes, Fear and Greed examines some of the biggest issues confronting the financial world as a whole. Sarkis focuses on the behaviour of central banks, regulators, and financial wrongdoers, especially in relation to their contribution to the current crisis.

In this lively and engaging book, Sarkis offers a clear vision of the coming years and plenty of inspiration for investors.

Professional Reviews

Sarkis' work is a must-read for investors seeking inspiration for their portfolios." - David Stevenson, Financial Times

"Nicolas Sarkis charts a clear and realistic path to the world beyond the Great Recession." - William Kay, Sunday Times

"Inflation, default, fraud, the euro... Had you thought about "financial repression"? Nicolas Sarkis touches the zeitgeist by putting perspectives around ten huge investment themes of the 20-teens. Before you pick your next stock, you might find it useful to let Sarkis rationalise your worry list." - Alistair Blair, Investors Chronicle

"Fear and Greed is superbly written and meticulously researched, providing great insights into the global investment climate." - Giles Whittell, The Times

"Sarkis isn't afraid to make bold predictions. He also challenges the sloppy thinking that many bulls are prone to and provides a wealth of detail and historical context. He's a useful antidote to much of the conventional wisdom out there. His book has already picked up several plaudits - some even comparing it to the work of Michael Lewis." - MoneyWeek

"Fear and Greed is an unemotional look at the markets. Nicolas Sarkis is spot on about the European contagion. His insights about money and markets are clear and worthwhile." - Marilyn Cohen, Forbes

"There is plenty of sensible advice in Fear and Greed to keep investors of all levels engaged. This might just be the best book on investment you'll read this year." - James Faulkner, UK-Analyst

"A very readable book" - FT Adviser
