The latest edition of the popular collection of in-depth portraits of extraordinary value investors, featuring new profiles and updates
The second edition of The Value Investors presents a collection of investing legend profiles from around the world. Chapters explore the investors’ backgrounds, cultures, and personal stories, and reveal how life experiences have shaped their investment strategies and mindsets. This fascinating book shows you that value investing is a dynamic, constantly-changing strategy which, when properly implemented, can provide significant, sustainable benefits. Although the investors profiled come from a diverse range of geographic regions and socio-economic, cultural, and educational backgrounds, they share similar personality traits, temperaments, and investment philosophes.
Thoroughly revised and expanded, the book provides relevant updates on the professional and personal experiences of the investors since the first edition's publication. Complementing the original profiles are several new chapters featuring established value investors including Howard Marks, as well as rising personalities and fund managers such as Álvaro Guzmán de Lázaro and Fernando Bernad Marrase. Author Ronald Chan, founder of Hong Kong-based investment management Chartwell Capital Limited, highlights how and why the value investors have consistently beaten the stock market through the years. This book:
- Covers multiple generations, geographies, and value investing styles
- Presents updated profiles of notable value investors such as Walter Schloss, Irving Kahn and Thomas Kahn, Jean-Marie Eveillard, Mark Mobius, and Teng Ngiek Lian
- Profiles international fund and asset managers from the North America, Europe and Asia
- Includes a chapter on the making of a successful value investor
The Value Investors: Lessons from the World's Top Fund Managers, 2nd Edition is a must-read for investors looking to diversify their portfolios across different asset classes or geographic areas, finance professionals and students, and general readers with interest in value investing.
From the Inside Flap
The second edition of The Value Investors: Lessons From The World’s Top Fund Managers sees the timely addition of successful value investors, such as Howard Marks of Oaktree Capital, to the existing line-up of investment luminaries that includes Irving Kahn, who worked closely with “the father of value investing” Benjamin Graham; Walter Schloss, who was described by Warren Buffett as the “superinvestor from Graham-and-Doddsville;” Cheah Cheng Hye of Hong Kong’s Value Partners and Shuhei Abe of Japan’s SPARX Group. Accomplished investor and author, Ronald Chan, sheds light on how all these internationally acclaimed value investors, despite differences in age and culture, remain as relevant as ever today.
The Value Investors shows how each investor’s personal background, life experiences, and culture have shaped their investment strategies and financial mindsets to consistently beat the stock market over the years. Readers will gain a better understanding of how personal traits and investment temperament can shape ordinary careers into extraordinary ones.
This book, written in an accessible and approachable style that foregoes much of the heavy mathematics found in competing works, puts together a compelling case for the argument that value comes in different forms. It also persuasively demonstrates that value investing is a dynamic and ever-evolving way of approaching the markets and is not the staid and old-fashioned investment strategy that it’s so often made out to be.
