Jacket Text

What if there was a uniquely safe place to put your money that also earned the best long-term returns?

In Only the Best Will Do, master investor Peter Seilern reveals everything you need to know to practise the art of quality growth investing: finding the companies that can reliably deliver steady and strong growth for the long term.

Distilling everything he has learned from a lifetime in the financial markets, Seilern enlightens the reader how to narrow down from tens of thousands of listed stocks to the select elite that belong in a quality growth investor’s portfolio.

These are shares, Seilern shows, that can be safer than bank deposits or government bonds. They also upend conventional wisdom on the merits of diversification, and reveal typical index-hugging fund management as even more self-serving and unjustified than many thought.

Quality growth businesses are the ultimate assets for those serious about making their investments work for them over the long term while minimising the risk of permanent loss of capital. You don't even need to worry too much about overpaying. All quality growth investing requires is patience, independent thinking, and the special golden rules - revealed here in detail - for finding the very best companies in the world.

For the investor truly interested in making the most of their time in the markets, only the best will do.
