"Modern portfolio theory gives a rigorous mathematical justification for the time honored investment maxim that diversification is a sensible strategy for individuals who wish to reduce their risks. Invented in the 1950s by Harry Markowitz in this book, the theory provides a firm foundation for the intuition that you should not put all your eggs in one basket and shows investors how to combine securities to minimize risk." (Burton G. Malkiel)
