Capital: The Story of Long-Term Investment Excellence Reviews
OK. This book is very dry and I'm surprised that a fellow as well lauded as the author writes in such a mish-mash manner. He needed a good editor to help him tell the Capital story the way it should have been told.
(however) Unless you are interested in Capital Group in particular, I recommend just reading What it takes.
Worthwhile read for someone interested in Capital Group. Provides an historical account (lot of detail) of how the firm and it's philosophy were founded. Most useful for someone interested in interviewing or investing with Capital Group.
Excellent Book on Capital Guardian.
Capital, the parent firm of American Funds, is one of the finest business organizations in American Business. This book was written by an index fund /no-load proponent who was looking to debunk American Funds (which are neither indexed, nor no-load) and instead he (Ellis) discovered their exceptional values, performance and pricing. This story is fast-paced and highly interesting, both to Advisors and clients.
If you are an investor and haven't learned of the advantages of the American Funds Family of Mutual Funds and its parent, Capital Reasearch and Management Company, this is a must read. Capital Research and Mngmt is a quiet company, they do not advertise, they do not sit for interviews or do press releases. They only manage money, period. As a result, they do it better than anybody. This book is the only place you will get in-depth information about the company short of visiting a broker who is equally enlightened. Discovering an equally enlightened broker, may I say, is rare to find in its own right. Rich people know about this company, but finding a rich person who will talk is equally difficult. Just read it, you'll see.
