Benjamin Graham

Benjamin Graham was a British-born American professional investor. Graham is considered the father of value investing, an investment approach he began teaching at Columbia Business School in 1928 and subsequently refined with David Dodd through various editions of their famous book Security Analysis. Graham had many disciples in his lifetime, a number of whom went on to become successful investors themselves. Graham's most well-known disciples include Warren Buffett, William J. Ruane, Irving Kahn and Walter J. Schloss, among others. Buffett, who credits Graham as grounding him with a sound intellectual investment framework, described him as the second most influential person in his life after his own father. In fact, Graham had such an overwhelming influence on his students that two of them, Buffett and Kahn, named their sons Howard Graham Buffett and Thomas Graham Kahn after him. Graham also taught at UCLA's Anderson School of Management.

Selling more than one million copies through five editions, it has provided generations of investors with the timeless value investing philosophy and techniques of Benjamin Graham and David L. Dodd.

“They laid out a road map for investing that I have now been following for 57 years. There’s been no reason to look for another.”
—Warren Buffett, on the writings of Benjamin Graham

Legendary investing author and philosopher Benjamin Graham lived through interesting times. Soon after his graduation from Columbia College, the nation entered the First World War. As the stock market fluctuated in wild dips and peaks, the government seized control of the railroad industry, inflation and interest rates rose dramatically, and economic depression loomed on the horizon.

During these events—and perhaps inspired by them—Graham began writing articles for The Magazine of Wall Street, putting to paper his earliest ideas on value investing and security analysis.

For the first time, these important works have been anthologized into a single volume. Benjamin Graham on Investing is a treasure trove of rare and out-of-print articles that document the early flashes of genius from a man whose ideas and theories would revolutionize investment philosophy and inspire the careers of such luminaries as Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman, Charlie Munger, and countless other top-tier investors.

The early works of Benjamin Graham have never been as relevant as they are today. The world’s markets are undergoing changeon a scale not unlike that of Graham’s era. David Darst, one of the world’s most respected experts on asset allocation, provides insightful analyses connecting Graham’s articles to events today.

,i>Benjamin Graham on Investing is a timeless classic that continues to have relevance more than 30 years after the author’s death.

Considerado el más importante consejero en inversión del siglo XX, Benjamin Graham enseñó e inspiró a financieros de todo el mundo. Presentó su filosofía, basada en el concepto de "invertir en valor", en El inversor inteligente, un libro que se convirtió en la biblia de los inversores ya desde su primera publicación en 1949. En él, Benjamin Graham alerta a los inversores sobre cómo evitar errores de estrategia, al tiempo que describe cómo desarrollar un plan racional para comprar acciones y aumentar su valor. Todo ello pensando en el largo plazo, pues trata de un método dirigido a inversores y no a especuladores: mientras que el especulador sólo tiene en cuenta las tendencias del mercado, el inversor obtiene sus beneficios con base en la disciplina y la investigación.

Con el paso de los años, el mercado ha ido dando la razón a todas y a cada una de las estrategias planteadas por Benjamin Graham, cuya obra sigue siendo una referencia ineludible.

Esta edición, además, cuenta con la valiosa aportación del periodista financiero Jason Zweig, quien se ha encargado de comentar y actualizar el texto, trazando paralelismos entre los ejemplos aportados por Benjamin Graham y las situaciones reales vividas en el mundo de las finanzas en los últimos años.

El inversor inteligente, además de ser un clásico imprescindible en cualquier biblioteca que se precie, es uno de los libros más importantes que se pueden leer para alcanzar los objetivos financieros que cada inversor se haya marcado.
