Book Description

Every RRSP owner watched in horror as the value of assets dropped steeply during the last months of 2008. Some lost more than 50 percent of their portfolio's value; many of these investors were approaching the point in their lives when they planned to use their RRSP assets as retirement income.

These unfortunate events have made one thing very clear: It is not enough to build up investments—we must learn how to better guard them. John Lawrence Reynolds, author of the bestselling Naked Investor, uses real-life examples and his characteristic wry humour to explain how any investor can take advantage of opportunities now to rebuild a stronger portfolio. Fortress Investing offers insight about what happened in the markets, how to spot problems on the road ahead, and most importantly, how to build a strong portfolio and safeguard that fortress through trying times.
