Honglou Fortune: Wealth for Generations (ISBN: 978-0-470-82434-4; John Wiley & Sons (Asia) Pte Ltd) puts the abstract concepts of investment and wealth management well within the readers’ reach, skillfully weaving these lessons into an enjoyable prose.

Graduating from Fudan University’s School of Economics with top honours, she brings rare and valuable insight into the investment and financial schools of thought.

Each chapter of the book closes with a short moral that contains tips from HSBC Jintrust investment advisors, rounded off with a comic illustration at the end of the recommendations.

Armed with a better understanding of investment concepts, funds and various investment products, anyone would see that investing can be a very straightforward and lighthearted affair, putting their dreams of financial freedom well within reach. This book is undoubtedly a worthwhile read for anyone interested in financial planning.
