This book features seventeen principles for investing with wisdom. Gathered here are 17 sound investment principles that will help people make sensible choices for financial security. What is surprising, however, is how applicable these principles are to life. Sir John Templeton, founder of the Templeton Mutual Funds, shares the basic rules he has used to create the world's best-performing mutual funds. For the first time, the underlying moral or spiritual principle is also explained to investors. Through the inspiration of this accessible work, we can see how interconnected our money is with the other choices we make in our lives. Through a consistent pattern of decision-making, we can learn to judge the true value of our investments - materially and spiritually. Using these simple guidelines, we can learn to create peace and harmony in our approach to life and, at the same time, create financial security.
