Who is Benjamin Graham?
Graham (May 8, 1894 – September 21, 1976) was an American economist and investor. Born in London, he went on to graduate from Columbia University at the age of 20 and eventually become Warren Buffett’s teacher there
He systematized the process of evaluating companies, with the goal of finding low-risk (or no risk) investments that would appreciate over time.
Graham authored "The Intelligent Investor", a seminal book on value investing described by Warren Buffet as "by far the best book on investing ever written".
His spirit lives on today in Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor, which provides expert value stock selection advice to thousands of investors—both individual and professional—all over the world.
