Author's Note

Dear reader,

While it has been a real pleasure to share my investment thoughts and experiences, I wanted you to know that Steve Leeward is a pen name. I decided to write under a pen name because I’m an executive as well as an investor. Rightly or wrongly, I wanted to clearly separate my business life as an executive from my writing life as an investor. I thank you for your understanding.

This book contains many detailed charts and specific recommendations about investment in U.S. financial markets. However, when it comes to real estate investing, the dynamics can be very different depending on the country, city, or neighborhood involved. This explains why my real estate investment suggestions are not location specific. Nevertheless, I wanted you to know that I’ve lived in Europe for most of my life. As such, the majority of my hands-on real estate experience is in Europe.

I sincerely hope this book helps you in achieving your own investment success.
