Benjamin Graham

Benjamin Graham was a British-born American economist, professor, and investor. He is widely known as the “father of value investing” and wrote two of the founding texts in neoclassical investing: Security Analysis (1934) with David Dodd and The Intelligent Investor (1949).

Graham’s research in securities laid the groundwork for in-depth fundamental valuation used in stock analysis today by all market participants.

His famous book, The Intelligent Investor, has gained recognition as the foundational work in value investing. Graham’s ideas helped inform the successful investing principles of later investors, namely Warren Buffett.
