Andrew Tobias has written twelve books, including selling over a million copies of The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need.
He proposes another basic Lazy Portfolio with only three holdings, which is also reminiscent of Bill Shultheis and Scott Burns’s three-fund portfolios. The lack of real assets definitely hurt this portfolio in the 1970s.
