All You Need to Know About Benjamin Graham

Benjamin Graham, often called the dean of Wall Street, is the founder of value investing.

In 1934 he co-authored the book Security Analysis. It's still the best book, and probably the only one needed, to understand how to value a business.

His disciple, Warren Buffett, would go on to become the most successful investor in the world.

His book The Intelligent Investor, is among the best books ever writing on investing.

Graham claimed that ordinary investors can beat market experts, and the benchmark indices, by following a good investment process in a disciplined manner.

He believed to earn superior returns in the market, investing temperament matters more than investing knowledge.

Graham's approach to investing is quantitative. This means selecting stocks based on deep analysis of a company's financial statements.

It places less emphasis on qualitative factors such as a company's management quality or economic moat (i.e. competitive advantage).

He is credited with investing the concepts of 'Mr Market' to explain fluctuations in stock prices, as well as 'Margin of Safety' to explain the importance of buying stocks that are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value.
