Back in 2014, I read a book called The Ivy Portfolio, by Meb Faber, on how to invest like the top university endowment funds and avoid bear markets.
In this article, we go over some key points of the book and see how we can potentially apply its strategies to our own investment portfolios.
Disclaimer: this is not investment advice. Invest at your own risk. I do not take any credit for the Ivy Portfolio strategy. This was the work of the author and his team of researchers. I'm just explaining what I took from the book.
