Read the fine print: The documents a PE firm typically produces for investors like you –the private placement memorandum describing the PE fund and the limited partnership agreement  governing its operations – are long and complicated.  More importantly, they may conceal important financial terms that you may not be able to fully appreciate from the broadly-worded way in which they are drafted – and it comes at a high price.

Accredited Investor Markets guest author Stephen A. Bornstein, of Wall St. Counsel, takes a hard look  at, “Getting Your Pocket Picked in Private Equity.”

DailyDAC LLC Founder Hits Top Ten on Amazon

“The Investor’s Guide to Alternative Assets: The JOBS Act, “accredited” investing, and You” #11 in “Kindle Short Reads / Business & Money Section” of Amazon Kindle Store

“The Investor’s Guide to Alternative Assets: The JOBS Act, “accredited” investing, and You” hit #11 in the Kindle Short Reads / Business & Money Section of Amazon Kindle Store on July 18th and remains #1 in the Securities Section, which it first hit several weeks ago. The book is an objective, plain English introduction to crowdfunding, venture capital, private equity, hedge funds, pre-IPO shares, and other types of “alternative” assets.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 19, 2014 — DailyDAC, LLC’s Financial Poise Unit is pleased to announce the success of “The Investor’s Guide to Alternative Assets: The JOBS Act, “accredited” investing, and You,” an unbiased and plain English introduction to venture capital, private equity, hedge funds, and other types of “alternative” assets. Published June 2nd, it hit #11 in the Kindle Short Reads / Business & Money Section of the Amazon Kindle Store on July 18th. The book is also the #1 best seller in the Securities Section of both the Kindle Store and the Amazon bookstore, despite the fact that the book is available as an e-book only.

Authored by DailyDAC founder, Jonathan Friedland, The Investor’s Guide to Alternative Assets presents an unbiased and plain English introduction to crowdfunding, angel investing, venture capital, private equity, hedge funds, pre-IPO shares, and other types of “alternative” assets.

“Alternative assets,” according to Accredited Investor Markets Managing Editor, Adam Schlagman, “are poised to explode in popularity over the next few years, as large numbers of investors are just now beginning to understand that alternatives may have a place in their portfolios. This book fills a void by providing a clear and objective introduction to investors about the risks and rewards of investing in alternatives.”

Asked for comment about the Amazon ranking, Friedland said: “I’m gratified that people are finding the book in the Business & Money Section because that tells me that the book is being read by the people I wrote it for: regular folks who happen to have saved enough money to warrant diversification beyond stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. While it’s a nice accolade that the book remains #1 in the Securities Section, I didn’t write it for lawyers or people with MBAs.”

The book is also available through the Barnes & Noble Nook Store, and Apple’s ibooks store.
