Warren Buffet Invests Like A Girl…

I am not demeaning the value investing guru of all time here. It is the actual title of a book by Motley Fool.
Here’s the excerpt from the review at Goodreads.Warren Buffett and all of the women of the world have one thing in common: They are better investors than the average man, a fact proven by psychologists, scientists, and the value of their portfolios. In this well-researched, eye-opening, and wonderfully witty must-have book, the impresarios at The Motley Fool show that women, with their capability for patience and good decision-making, epitomize the Foolish investment philosophy, and the investment practices of the most successful investor in history: Warren Buffett. While men tend to be too confident, compulsive, and overly daring, women tend to be more studious, skeptical, and reasonable – traits that have led them to consistently outperform their male counterparts as investors. Unlike men, women spend more time researching their investment choices – knowledge that helps them avoid hot tips and trading on whims. Women trade less than men; their lack of confidence actually helps them choose more wisely and results in higher dividends and lower costs. And women consider more than just the numbers when making trading decisions. They invest in companies they feel good about ethically and personallycompanies with good products, good services, and ethics that tend to have better long-term prospects and face fewer lawsuits. 

For those with XY chromosomes (myself included), drop your masculine armor and herd mentality right now.  Heed this advice and adopt a more ‘feminine temperament’ in investing.Warren Buffet Invests Like A Girl... by CF Lieu - Certified Financial Planner Malaysia
