Dave Harder has written an investment book.

Investing in the age of information overload

Kent Harrison Search and Rescue volunteer writes a book on how to invest in a loud market

Kent-Harrison Search and Rescue members spend countless hours studying and training to become competent members of the team. But it is all run, 100 per cent, by volunteers who still have to work jobs to pay the bills.

For Dave Harder, a longtime member of KHSAR, his day job is a Portfolio Manager and Vice President at RBC Wealth Management in Abbotsford. Harder has drawn from his experience in Search and Rescue to tell the story of investment.

“People are suffering from information overload,” says Harder. “We wanted to provide a filter so people can focus only on what we believe really impacts economies and markets, and ignore all the other noise.”

He co-authored the book with a U.S. psychiatrist, Dr. Janice Dorn. The book, called Mind, Money and Markets, is for everyone from novice to expert investors.

“We want to enable all types of investors to be more efficient and productive in eliminating meaningless noise in order to focus on only key pieces of information that really matter,” he explains. “By following what the money is doing instead of listening to what people say it should do, and recognizing just a few factors that really cause problems in the market, I’ve developed a strategy to manage risk.”

The book has been endorsed by some major investment experts, and Harder said he’s received invitations for speaking engagements because of it.

Mind, Money and Markets can be found on the shelves of The Bookman in Chilliwack, or online at amazon.com
