Learn and profit from the early writings of a financial genius

Benjamin Graham is widely known as the father of Value Investing, and mentor to Warren Buffett. But Graham made another critically important contribution by advocating that securities analysts should meet minimum requirements of knowledge, and be held to high standards of ethical conduct—in short, that the profession should be treated as seriously as other fields of study, like accounting, medicine or law.

Benjamin Graham and the Birth of the Professional Financial Analyst showcases Graham’s important contribution to remaking investment analysis as a profession. This fascinating collection spanning 30 years offers us valuable perspectives on investing and financial markets—many as vital in the present day as they were in Graham’s own tumultuous mid-twentieth century—and reveals the evolution of Graham’s passionate belief in the creation of a financial profession and a science of financial analysis.
