Inspired by the MSIM Program curriculum at BU School of Management

Designed to be First Comprehensive Textbook for Advanced Portfolio Management Courses

Boston University School of Management’s Scott Stewart, research associate professor in the Finance Department and faculty director of the MSIM Program, has co-authored a new textbook on investment strategy called Running Money: Professional Portfolio Management. The work delves into asset allocation, security selection, and the investment business at large.

“This work is written by experienced money managers who, for 10 years, have been teaching the very course that inspired the book.”

Running Money, by developing advanced portfolio management tools and illustrating their practice, exposes students to what they need to “run money” professionally.  This new first edition text is ideal particularly for an elective course in Portfolio Management, providing advanced instruction in setting broad asset mixes, managing individual asset class portfolios, and making effective investment business decisions.

The work is published by McGraw Hill, and two chapters have been adopted for use by the CFA Institute in its continuing education program.
