My friend Loren Fleckenstein (DoubleLine Capital) sent this over to me and now I want to share it with you – Bonnie Baha’s last column for Forbes just went online and will be published in the October 4th issue of Forbes Magazine, I believe.
For those who hadn’t heard, Bonnie passed away at the end of August in a tragic accident while dropping her son off at college. It was shocking and extremely sad for anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her, as I have for the past few years. In a touching development, it turns out that her last column carried a message of hope and courage in the face of adversity. It’s called ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’ and it deals with the difference between the risk of individual securities versus that of the various asset classes that make up the investing universe.
I hope that you can find a few moments to read it. Like everything Bonnie did, it’s both thoughtful and poignant.
