  • Book Review: James Montier’s Value Investing 0 comments
    Feb 24, 2010 2:19 PM
    James Montier is a highly respected, yet controversial, value investor. He’s widely regarded as an authority figure on applying behavioral finance to (value) investing. 
     
    Value Investing is a compilation of Montier's research reports written over years while working as the Chief Global Strategist at Societe Generale and Dresdner Kleinwort. 
     
    Montier’s witty prose quickly destroys the famed ‘efficient market hypothesis’ and all of its derivatives, demonstrates the fallibility of forecasters and forecasting (including the often employed discounted cash flow), and introduces readers to the growing field of behavioral finance. To get a feel for Montier's style, check out this excerpt. Most of the ideas that Montier dismantles are widely held beliefs by business school professors, politicians, and financial advisors. 
     
    Montier also shows you, with academic rigor, what works and how you can improve your investing process. 
     
    Having read most of his work already, I discovered a few things that I had previously missed. For example, I hadn’t seen Montier’s ten tenets of his investing creed. While these are nothing revolutionary to students of Berkshire Hathaway’s dynamic duo, Montier’s writing and stories are hard to forget. 
     
    This book is a must read for all participants in financial markets. 
     
    This book was published by Wiley
