About the Authors
  • This book on personal financial planning and wealth management employs the lifecycle model of financial economics. The central idea of “consumption smoothing” is used to connect chapters and topics such as saving and investment, debt management, risk management, and retirement planning. The first part of the book is nontechnical and aimed at a wide audience with no special technical background. The second part of the book provides a rigorous presentation of the lifecycle model from first principles using the calculus of variations. The accompanying website is found at http://www.yorku.ca/milevsky/?page_id=185.

    • Uses the lifecycle model of Nobel Laureate Franco Modigliani as the unifying theme for understanding finance
    • Blends practical advice with technical rigor on all features of strategic financial planning
    • Slides for teaching the book and a solutions manual will be available to instructors
