A blueprint to successful value investing

Successful value investors have an ingrained mental framework through which all investments decisions are made. This framework, which stems from the father of value investing, Benjamin Graham-who believed that investment is most intelligent when it is most businesslike-can put you in a better position to improve the overall performance of your portfolio.

Written by Sham Gad-founder of the Gad Partners Funds, a value-focused investment partnership inspired by the 1950s Buffett Partnerships-The Business of Value Investing effectively examines the fundamental tenants of this approach and skillfully illustrates the six essential elements of the entire process.

  • Contains case studies that illustrate how to approach investing in an intelligent, businesslike fashion
  • Walks you through the pitfalls that most investors initially fall into

With The Business of Value Investing as your guide, you'll quickly become familiar with one of the most effective investment strategies ever created.
